SS19 Lip Products: Lisa Eldridge, Laura Mercier, BITE Beauty, Tom Ford, Hourglass, Givenchy

Spring/Summer season beauty wise means new lip releases, so I’ve chosen the ones that caught my attention.  It is insane how the textures and the formulas improve all the time and we get more sophisticated lip products all the time. Just take a look at these innovative gems.

Laura Mercier Velour Lip Powder in Paris (shown) and New York £25 from Cult Beauty $28 from the Website, Nordstrom

A limited edition creamy matte lip powder trio with a metallic sheen. Comes with a moisturizing Base Balm to prep the lips. These look really cool, and I love the concept.

Lisa Eldridge lipsticks. The red ones sold out within a day(s) so I did not even have time to get any. But she promised a restock, and new nude and fuchsia shades (see below a pic of Eva wearing one of the new shades; pic is from Lisa’s Insta)!  I don’t know the date yet.

BITE BEAUTY Outburst Longwear Lip Stain, $24 from Sephora

Bite beauty lip products are incredible, and it looks like it’s another great one

Winter is Here: Urban Decay Game Of Thrones Makeup Collection

Winter is Here! I mean the last season of Game Of Thrones is almost upon us. I will be wearing my shirt, for sure.

picture from UD Insta where you can see more pics and videos of the collection.

Urban Decay did well, and brought out a GOT collection. And it doesn’t matter whether or not you actually need those products, they are a must for a fan. I mean, I was obsessed with the UD palettes years ago, and I would never part with my Alice one (see here and here), although I never use it. I think this palette is the same thing. It’s a great collectable item. Just look at it!

Game Of Thrones Eye Shadow Palette (£45/$65). I love the press release so I will include it: “Use this arsenal of 20 shades to declare your allegiance to House Targaryen, House Lannister, House Stark, or to defeat the White Walkers. Jewel tones and earthy neutrals give way to dark metallics and frosty shimmers, all of which can be customized with our four transformer shades. Prepare for battle with Stormborn, a glittery metallic purple, and unwind with Lannister Red, a matte reddish brown. Choose your look and claim your rightful place on the Iron Throne”.

And while the palette is the star of the collection, for sure, just take a look at those liners. How

SS19 Blush Palettes: Chanel, NARS, Jouer and Benefit

We already had a preview of the upcoming makeup products such as lip lacquers, highlighter sticks, eye shadow palettes and human hair wigs.

So let’s take a look at cheek palettes, and there are quite a few, these are just the ones I’ve chosen.

Without a doubt, the most covetable palette of the SS19 season will be this lill gem from Chanel –  Voyage de Chanel (£52 from the website) which is  a blush/illuminating powders quad.

African American Wigs

  • Paris – A fresh and satiny pink blush that recreates the flush of brisk air of Paris along the banks of the Seine River.
  • London – A deep coral blush, inspired by the colourful façades of the Portobello Market in Notting Hill.
  • New York – A satiny powder that brings to mind the metallic golden finish of the Brooklyn Bridge.
  • Tokyo – A subtly rosy illuminating powder that recalls the poetic grace of cherry blossoms in Japan.

Besides Chanel, there are a few other gorgeous palettes to choose from:

SS19 Makeup: Stick Highlighters

Highlighters in sticks is nothing new, and a lot of brands have those but I have noticed that it is a micro trend for Spring.  And it is a great format, quite frankly, and I can totally see why more brands are bringing one out!

Easy to use on the go, beautiful creamy texture, instant pick-me-up, glow giver. What is not to love?
