SS15 Sheer Lipsticks: Givenchy, Lancome, Urban Decay and Bare Minerals

New season – new lipstick, right? Here are some of the variants which you can consider. I have already posted about a lot of new lipsticks (browse here), and here are even more. This time it’s all abut the sheer, glossy, balmy textures. And, yes, there will be a separate feature about different ones.

First of all, here is a preview of Givenchy’s Rouge A Porter which comes in a chic thin leather tube and is a glossy sister of my favourite Le Rouge.  Available for £25 from Harrods.

Buxom, Armani,Too Faced and Deborah Lippmann Values Sets

This week I was browsing some US websites as I’ve ordered some things for myself  ( my friend kindly agreed to help) and I came across some interesting sets which I personally think are worth the attention.

So if you are from the US, you may find this interesting. I could have included so many sets but I’ve limited them to four only.

All the sets are relatively new and I would personally  get all of them for myself.

A collection of seven ready-to-wear Big & Healthy Lip Polishes.

This set contains:

0.05 oz x 7 Mini Big & Healthy Lip Polish in

  • Katie (princess pink),
  • Mia (fuchsia shimmer),
  • Alison (vibrant pink shimmer),
  • Sasha (champagne shimmer),
  • Linda (sheer plum wine),
  • Kesha (sheer pink rose)

My opinion: I think it’s an amazing value for 7 glosses and a great chance to get a lot of shades for less than $30.

My opinion: I think it’s a wonderful set for summer, pretty much everything you need and an amazing value.

The first two sets are from Sephora and the next two are

New Buxom Stay-There Eye Shadows With Cute Puppies

There are so many items with kittens even make-up: cat lipsticks, cat inspired collections and many more. I don’t mind at all because I am a huge fan of cats but what about puppies and dogs?

Now you can get yourself an eye shadow with a cute puppy and a do name!

Be sure to get yourself these eye shadows if you love dogs because Bare Escentuals is making a charitable contribution to Canine Companions for Independence-a non-profit organization that enhances the lives of people with disabilities by providing highly trained assistance dogs.

Spring 2014 Colour: Radiant Orchid

So… the official Pantone colour for SS14 is Radiant Orchid. And you can actually see  cool toned pink/lavender/orchid beauty products in  several Spring 2014 makeup collections.

I am personally a big fan of  sheer lip products of such shades, and wouldn’t mind something for nails and eyes, too.

Luckily Sephora has a huge selection of the makeup in this trendy  shade, and I have chosen five that I personally wouldn’t mind having in my own makeup bag:
