SS19 Mini Trend: Lip and Cheek 2-in-1 Products

I have noticed that a few really cool brands launched lip and cheek products, so here is a preview. And while I have only tried one product from Milk so far, I am a big fan of Trish and RBR, as regular readers will know.

SS19 Bright Eye Shadow Palettes: Lorac, Jouer, Anastasia

Bright eye shadows are a real  trend this summer, I have already featured L’Oreal and Viseart but there are many, many more. I’ve decided to mention 3 palettes which I personally like the most. And I like the look of them. I have not tried these particular palettes but I do have other palettes from these three brands, and love them. So here is hoping these are great, too.

ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS Alyssa Edwards Eyeshadow Palette £46 Cult Beauty $45 Sephora

I am including this because I am obsessed with Norvina palette which I have. While I did not know who Alyssa Edwards was (RuPaul’s Drag  Race contestant) I love the combination of bold and neutral shades.

  • 10 x Eyeshadows in Headliner (matte bright white), Inspire (metallic champagne gold), Unicorn Tribe (matte cool plum pink), Brick Road (matte primary yellow), Back Rolls (matte warm chocolate brown), The Supreme (matte deep peach), H.O.E. (matte neutral taupey brown), D.D.G. (rich metallic violet with silver flecks), Beyond (warm metallic fuchsia), Beast (matte blackest black)

SS19 Eye Shadows: Dior, Viseart, Givenchy, theBalm, L’Oreal

I did write about the bronzers and some new lip products that caught my attention this month, so let’s take a look at the eye shadows.  By the way, I often post previews over at  Makeup4all Facebook page, so you may want to give it a like.

First of all, how cool are the new Colour Queen eye shadows from L’Oréal. These are oil infused apparently, they will come in 36 shades. [Pic  is from Val Garland’s insta]. I want that dark chocolate and red.

Want It: Givenchy Disturbia Collection

Givenchy give most other beauty companies a run for their money when it comes to packaging lately.

I am a huge fan of the Noir Couture mascara and I also loved their felt tip eye liner, and that makes me very excited for the new Disturbia collection, I have my eyes on the black mascara, besides these three,  and the eye liner in the red packaging. I am being that specific because there is also a red mascara (which looks burgundy on the promos; LE), and an eye liner in a black packaging.

I’ve bought a mini NARS mascara just because it was in red, and good thing I’ve got a small one, it smudges like crazy, and I prefer the Givenchy design anyway. Basically, you can put anything in a red tube and I already want it, simple as that.

What about the products?

The liner is promised to be intense, smudge-proof and  waterproof while delivering an intense black colour.

The mascara is described as the one to give  “excessive volume and dramatic curve. A volume and curve effect, so excessive, they are almost disturbing!” The brush is silicone.

I have noticed that  both products are sold out already, and why am I not surprised, so we’ll have to wait for the restocks. Givenchy is available online from Saks  Neiman MarcusBarneysHarrods, Sephora, Escentual and Nordstrom so keep an eye on those magical red packaging.

The price for both is €29.

SS19 Bronzers: Lancome, Chanel, Chantecaille, byTerry Clarins and Givenchy

May means that pretty much all of the summer collections are out, including all the pretty bronzers. I have chosen six that caught my eye. But it seems that I will have to feature more a bit later.

Chanel duo bronze et lumièreBronzer And Highlighter Duo, $70 from Chanel

As all bronzers in this feature, it comes in 2 shades: Clair and Medium (shown). You get a matte bronzer and an  iridescent highlighter. I looks pretty perfect to me.

 Lancome  LE FRENCH GLOW , $45 Nordstrom and Saks

How cool are the LIBERTÉ, EGALITÉ, FEMININITÉ writings on the bronzer?  You get 4 shades in each compact to bronze and contour. You can get 1 Warm Liberte  or 2 Warm Sensualite.

Clarins Bronzing Compact, $45 from Saks, Nordstrom

Clarins summer bronzers are some of the best on the market, I still really love
