Matte Lips: Armani, Lancome and Smashbox

I have recently posted about some new lip products: glossy ones and classy lipsticks but it seems like those uber popular matte (often liquid) lipsticks are not going anywhere. And here are the brand new releases.

Lancome Matte Shaker Liquid Lipstick, £19.50 from Selfridges

“Water-in-oil-based emulsion is formulated with a patented Ultra-Thin Film technology to deliver weightless texture and a second-skin feel”. You also get a great colour pay off and a comfortable, non-drying wear. There are quite a few shades to choose from and the images Lisa Eldridge created are gorgeous.

I am happy to show you the second Photos of The Week feature.   I really hope you enjoy it and please let me know what you think.

1. Apivita Anti-Wrinkle Serum.

My Mum has finished up this serum with with vitamin e & resveratrol and she reports that is was really nice. She did not say anything about the anti-wrinkle effect but, according to her, the skin definitely looked better and felt much softer. You can read about this serum here. By the way, here  is the serum from Apivita which I’ve used and really loved.

2. Elle Magazine May.

Elle (UK) May magazine.  With  my favourite Emily Blunt on the cover and lots of amazing makeup looks inside. I really loved the makeup on the red head which you can see below. And can you guess who did it? Yes.. Lisa Eldridge.  I was looking at it ans thinking that it looked like her style and when I read the credits, turned out I was right 🙂

Of course, I had to include a photo of food. This is just a random breakfast with salad, omelette with green olives and Camembert and orange juice.

No 7 Spring 2012 Makeup Collection Review, Swatches and Face Of The Day

I have three products from the amazing Lisa Eldridge’s N07 makeup collection for Spring 2012 to show you.

No7 Vital Enlightening Highlighter (10g £13), No7 Vital Brights Cream Blush (2g, £10) in Blooming Pink, bright hot pink and No7 Vital Brights Lipstick (3.5g, £10) in Blooming Pink, hot pink.

First of all I have to say that I really like the flower prints on the packaging and I really wish they’d put at least one on the lipstick tube, too.

I was really excited about the bright pink blush and lipstick when I first saw them. And, let me tell you, both are even better than I’ve hoped they’d be!

I will start with the lipstick as it is my favourite item. It it a perfect bright, hot and vibrant blue based pink which gives a nice glossy texture. The shade is buildable, you can blot it out for a sheer effect or layer it up for a stunning full on colour.

I really like the lipstick’s formula, it is like a

No7 Floral Brights Makeup Collection for Spring 2012

I really loved Spring 2011 makeup collection by N07  and I have bought several items so I was looking forward to this Spring’s makeup collection. And I like it, too. The collection was created by Lisa Eldridge and is called Floral Brights.

Here is what Lisa says about the collection herself: “The spring collection showcases a bright new twist to the barely-there make-up look that refuses to go out of fashion. Encapsulating the eclectic and diverse nature of modern British beauty, there’s a perfect look for every woman – a refresh of the neutral look with the latest nude hues, and a wear-it-if-you-dare, bold  irtation with colour – to inspire all your Ta Dah moments this spring.”

This collection includes:

No7 Vital Enlightening Highlighter 10g, £13.00

  • The peach undertones add warmth while the perfectly partnered pink shimmer gives a youthful glow.

 No7 Vital Brightening Eye Palette 4g, £13.00

  • Three beige and brown shades and soft pink – and all-important yellow for the inner corners of the eye.

No7 Vital Brights Cream Blush 2g, £10.00. Light-wear and soft
