Want It: Estee Lauder La Dangereuse by Violette Makeup Collection

To be honest, Estee Lauder was never the brand I cared for that much until recently, somehow very few products appealed to me. The  break through for me was the collaboration with Victoria Beckham.I’ve been following her for ages now.

And ever since EL appointed Violette to be their Creative Director, everything changed. This is her second collection, and it looks perfect. I also love how well edited it is, there are only a few products but they are absolutely perfect!

NARS Under Cover Makeup Collection for Summer 2016

I am personally a huge fan of beauty and art collaborations, such as this one by François Nars and a contemporary artist Konstantin Kakanias, inspired by a glamorous  French Riviera they came up with 10 makeup products.

Dual-Intensity eye shadows and blushes and a brand new product for the brand – Lip Cover. Each comes in a special edition packaging.

Illamasqua To Be Alive Makeup Collection for Summer 2015

I remember when Ilamasqua just launched in November 2008 (Makeup4all actually launched 3 months later, so I covered all their collections) – it was something different and unique, something edgy, alternative, and opposite the mainstream, so to speak. Their collections like Dystopia and Theatre Of Nameless were so unlike anything else with the gorgeous looks from Alex Box and unreal shades of the products.

To be honest, I wasn’t a big of the latest releases such as Glamore and similar ones, as for me it wasn’t the Illamasqua I loved. This is why it is very nice to see how they are back to their roots with this new To Be Alive Collection.

July Beauty Inspiration

It’s been a while since I’ve posted the “Beauty Inspiration” post last time, so it’s time for an update 😉

I really love these beautiful images from Bloomingdales that I’ve discovered this month. How cool and inspiring are thay, right?

My favourites have to be the one with red lips and the one with the eye liner, I am definitely going to attempt to re-crete it [that liner] myself.

But today I want to tell you about one of their duos – YSL Ombres Duolumieres Jaune Ardent/Bleu Torride, and this lill’ palette is just perfect for summer, as you get a blue, and a yellow!

Let’s take a look…

YSL Ombres Duolumieres in 37 Review and Swatches 1The colours are very beautiful, and are true to what you see in the packaging. You can get a sheer wash of colour, or build up the intensity by layering, using over primer or with a damp brush or sponge.  The sponges that come on the palette are actually great for packing on shadows.

I personally love using the blue on top of any blue eye shadow with a lot of mascara, it looks great on brown eyes. Or with a damp thin brush an eye liner. Yellow could be used for a
