I have noticed that a few really cool brands launched lip and cheek products, so here is a preview. And while I have only tried one product from Milk so far, I am a big fan of Trish and RBR, as regular readers will know.

A while ago I did a feature on eye gloss and today I want to share about the extension of that trend which is 3-in-1 glosses. Glossy/glass skin has been a thing in Asia for ages now but we are seeing it in Western beauty trends now, as well. And I like it.
Here are just three products that were recently released which are specifically marketed for lips, eyes and face. While you can always use a good old Bobbi Brown Crystal Gloss why not playing with [hopefully] new textures?
Let’s take a look:
These are a part of the summer collection and come in 4 shades: Nomade, a perfect nude, Oasis a vivid rose, Laissez-Faire a clear shimmer or Dreamer a bronze shimmer.
Glacé Touch are promised to be a sheer, non-sticky gloss for dewy, high-shine glowing finish.
The looks below, which I found on Pinterest (still obsessed with it), will hopefully inspire you to experiment with glosses, as well.
I have always been a fan of glossy eye lids, and it is kinda cool to see that it is a big trend now. Here is a look I have created with the Rouge Bunny Rouge eye gloss back in 2012. If you haven’t tried the glossy eye lid look, definitely do, it is so effortless, fun and sexy. Sounds like such a cliche thing which is said about every “trend”, but in this case it really is all of that.
You can always get the RBR or MAC eye glosses. Or try the new options. And now it is very easy to get the one you like, considering that even such brands as Bobbi Brown and YSL now have them.
Bobbi Brown just launched three shades (£19.50 from Harvey Nichols and $28 from Barneys), and they will be a huge hit, for sure. You can choose from Beach Nude, Island Pink and Nude. YSL offer just a clear option Yves Saint Laurent Eye Gloss Smudger ($30 from Nordstrom).
But if you want a colourful eye gloss, and from a more niche brand, I’ve got you covered, too. Here are three options for your consideration.
The product that I am
Berry lips are my favourite actually. And, although they are super hot for AW, I can wear them at any time. And so should you, don’t limit yourself by anything… By the way, have you see the gorgeous look from Dolce & Gabbana SS15 show that Pat McGrath created (check out the photos below)?
I think every girl should own a nice berry/plum lipstick. Which one? It only depends on the shade that you prefer and your budget.
So here are two options: very different price point but are utterly divine anyway.
Tom Ford Lip Color in Bruised Plum (review and lip swatches)
Tom Ford beauty started with lipsticks, and they are still the most covetable item from his line. Luxurious packaging, TF logo, beautiful texture and flattering shades. If £37/$50 price point is something you would consider – it is an amazing “investment”. My friends are
