Please the excuse the lack of updates recently, I could give you all of the reasons for that. But, truth be told, I was not inspired to write here for some time. And I can’t think of anything worse than a
half-arsed forced feature on beauty. However, I did post Insta stories almost daily.
But the other day I saw that makeup products which made me go all: “Oh, I want that”. And that does not happen that often so it deserves a mention.
Meet the new Bite Beauty Yaysayer Plumping Lip Gloss.
Shown are the shades: Rose Meringue, shimmering warm rose and Guava Puff, shimmering nude pink
While I am
I did not write any “Want It” features in a while because, quite frankly, I see new beauty launches all the time and it takes a lot for me to actually want that product.
But today I want to share about two items which I would get this very minute: one beauty, one makeup.
I am a big fan of baby pink pink glosses, and 1 Pink Irresistible looks exactly like the type of product I would like. Especially now that my favourote pink glosses from Chanel and Rouge Bunny Rouge were discontinued, I am looking for a replacement. And this could be it.
Le Rose Perfecto Liquid Balm is promised to nourish (shea butter and cranberry oil), smooth, plump and hydrate (extract of pink pepper) the lips.
And let’s not forget the
A England is one of a kind brand, not only their nail polishes are ridiculously gorgeous but the stories behind them are fascinating. It was a pleasure to interview the founder Adina (read it here) a while ago, and I am always looking forward to the new releases.
And this time the brand outdone itself, in my opinion, the new British Subcultures collection makes my heart beat faster. I found it mind blowing how Adina managed to visualise a certain subculture with a colour, this is pure art, I am telling you.
Above you can see Goth shade, and here is what is posted on the brand’s Facebook about it: “GOTH one of my best-loved among the British Subcultures. The goth subculture began in England during the early 1980s. This mostly aesthetic subculture includes dark attire (often black) and is marked by an antiquated style that is
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 Marcus, Barneys, Harrods, Sephora, Escentual and Nordstrom so keep an eye on those magical red packaging.
The price for both is €29.
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!
