Vintage and Old Makeup Ads

I love vintage and old makeup ads, they are so inspiring and it’s nice to  see how the art of makeup has developed. Even if you look at the makeup ads which were made 5 years ago you can see a huge difference!

I have so many of them so I’ve picked some to share with you.  If you have  any vintage or old makeup ads or just those that you like a lot – I’d be very happy if you could share with us!

This is an old Maybelline ad (1952?)

YSL Belle de Jour, Belle de Nuit and Rive Gauche Manicures from Rock and Baroque Collection for Fall 2010

If you saw the YSL Fall 2010 makeup collection Rock and Baroque, you’ve probably seen how many nail polishes they have (and not only, this is a great collection in my opinion). It is a new trendy colourful French manicure.

Here are some variations – red and fuchsia manicure Rive Gauche

Purple and gold “Belle de Nuit” manicure

My Current Makeup and Beauty Wishlist

I got way to many makeup this month so I will try not to buy a lot  too soon. I thought I’d just make a list of things that I plan to buy in the future and stick to it! Sounds great but will it work?! We’ll see 😉

I’ve devided my list in 2 parts : things that I need and things that I want. Although I have a big temptaion to put all items into 1st list, summer vacation is more important that lip gloss#… or shadows # …

Things that I Need:

  • New face creams, I don’t know what to get yet.
  • N7 concealer brush.
  • N7 Foundation brush.
  • Different False lashes, probably Ardell.

  • Several ELF brushes to try and maybe some of their products.
  • New Transculent powder but I still hope that I will get the HD from MUFE that I ordered(which got lost with the primer and several shadows)
  • MAC  15 palette with neutral shadows.
  • Brow gel, not sure which one yet ( any recommendations?)

  • MUFE 12  flash colour case. I wanted to order it but it was sold out. So I got a Flash colour in black to try it  and will review it later.
  • Lip brush, I will probably get  the Bobbi Brown one.
  • I need some green and olive liners  so I want to see those new from MAC beach collection.
  • Kerastase shampoo.

Things that I want:

I got a lot of thing that I wanted but there are still a lot on my list

Preview of Makeup Collection by Yves Saint Laurent and Giorgio Armani for Summer 2010

Although we already saw a lot of summer 2010 makeup collections I am sure that we all want to see MORE! Am I right? 😉 So here is the preview of summer 2010 makeup collections by Giogrio Armani and Yves Saint Laurent.

Just take a look at this Bronzemania palette by Armani. It is so gorgeous, perfect for summer.

And what about Yves Saint Laurent. I already made a post about the new eye shadows and eye liners but here is the photo of summer collection + some products

12 Favourite Beauty Products of March

So many of you asked me to do a “favourite beauty products of the month” posts that now I just have to do it lol. I already reviewed some products so I will just give the link in this case. As for the other products – I plan to review some of them later but feel free to ask questions and leave comments. Ok, here we go! 🙂

1.Dream Cream by Lush

I wrote a review this week so you can read it here

2. BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl

I got this products for £ 32.00 at zuneta. This is a lot for a highlighter you may say. But you get 50 ml and it will last you forever plus this product is SO good. I will be sure to write a detailed review. Why did I get it you may ask? Lisa Eldridge said that this is one of her favourite products ever and I was looking for a new highlighter so I had to buy it 😉 You can watch  Lisa’s video about liquid highlighters  here

3.Toleriane Dermo-Cleanser, Gentle non-foaming cleanser by La Roche-Posay

You can read about it more at the official website. This cleanser works great for my very dry and sensitive skin. When I bought it I got samples of almost all products of the brand and I really loved some of them. And what do you think about this brand?

4.BI-FACIL – Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover by Lancome

This is one of the best makeup removers that I’ve ever tried and I know that a lot of ladies love it, too.

5. OMBRES 5 LUMIÈRES 5 Colour Harmony for Eyes in #7 Bronze Gold by Yves Saint Laurent

I love everything about these shadows : design, texture, colours. The only thing that I don’t like is the price. Promise to write a review and make swatches about this palette.

6.Liquid Metal in Phenomena (silver) by Illamasqua

This product creases but it’s too beautiful so I am really in love with it. Also if you use it over the shadows everything is ok. Review and swatches here

8.Vinyl Gloss by Rimmel in Punk Princess 197 (clear with golden sparkles)

You can read more about this gloss and see the swatches here. I really like Rimmel glosses and have a few of them. But this shade was in my purse almost all the time this month.

7. Bourjois Limited Edition 2009 Vintage Blush in Amber D’or

I HAD to buy something from “Rendez-vous à Paris” by Bourjois. I am so proud that I bought only one blush although I had a big temptation to buy everything. Yes, I am addicted to pretty things.  These are the same products that you can get from the brand but with an amazing design.

8.Vinyl Gloss by Rimmel in Punk Princess 197 (clear with golden sparkles)
