Lancome Makeup Collection for Summer 2017

Lisa Eldridge is doing a really great job at Lancome, have you noticed that lately their releases look more fun, and more creative? Also the products look more youthful, in a good way.

Here is a preview of the brand’s summer release. And just look at those face palettes *heart emoji*

Belle de Tint Mpsaic Palette ($45) is a blush and bronzer palette, it comes in two shades: 01 Patio Mediterraneen 2  PatioD’une Nuit D’ete.

Makeup4all 15 Makeup Favourites of 2015

Ok, I am finally doing it!  Writing 2015 yearly favourites that is.  The thing is when I started writing this post I’ve gathered so many products that I’d be going on, and on about them all. This is why here are 15 I loved the most. 15 since it was 2015, yes, I know…

Makeup4all 15 Makeup Favourites of 2015

If I had to choose only 1 product that would probably be Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in 25 Alluring Rose (review and swatches)

Long-time readers know how much I love my blushers. And this year it was all about this one, I’ve barely used anything else.  Creme Puff Blush gives that luminous glow that instantly brightens up the complexion. The formula is incredibly soft and smooth and blends into the skin beautifully. I have several shades but Alluring Rose is the love of my [beauty] love.

The other favourite is still my Trish McEvoy Golden Bronzer (review). As you can see from the photo above, it is very well loved. It warms up the complexion without looking orange or muddy.  I  like the hint of radiance it gives, too.

BECCA’s Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl (review) is still the best glow-and-radiance-in-a-bottle product out there.  I usually mix it with foundation  to make my skin look “healthy”. This formula and shade = perfection.

If I had to pick only one “foundation” of the year – that’d be Clarins HydraQuench Tinted Moisturizer (review and swatches), hands down. It is dry skin’s best friend. Clarins know how to

SS17 Mascaras: Dior, Lancome, YSL, Givenchy

Quite a few brands famous for mascaras launched  additions to their ranges, and we are talking about Lancome, YSL (The Shock) and Dior.  And I have reviewed at least one from each brand in the past…

I am also a huge fan of the Givenchy mascaras, so I am excited to see a new one from them, too.

But today let’s take a look at two mascaras I haven’t mentioned yet.

Dior Diorshow Pump‘N’Volume Mascara, $29.50 from Sephorafrom Selfridges and Bergdorf Goodman .

“A super-volumizing squeezable mascara with a fully loaded brush for instant, extreme lash volume.  By pumping the soft tube, you’ll coat the brush and soften the creamy, rich mascara formula inside for a perfect, fresh application, every time”.

Lancome The Monsieur Big Mascara,  $25 from Sephora,  Neiman Marcus,  Selfridges, HarrodsNordstrom.

“A high-volume mascara that delivers bold lash volume for up to 24 hours. Features a large brush and an ultra-creamy formula that glides onto lashes like silk and delivers up to 12 times the volume with up to 24 hours of wear”.

I am actually trying out quite a few mascaras now, so expect to see the reviews in the future.

The promo image with blue and pink shades makes me smile and think of a beautiful spring ahead of us. It looks romantic and carefree, if you ask me. And we all need that…

Lipsticks in Red: Chanel, Dior, Guerlain and Lancome

I am the biggest fan of a red lipstick, and if there is anything better than a red [lipstick], that is one in a red packaging.  And it looks like it is a mini trend for the Autumn, and it is something  that has my 100% approval.
