Tag: Spring 2013 beauty
I have already posted about the new Rouge Bunny Rouge mascara Oxblood Panache on Facebook but here is the brand’s newest look for Spring 2013.
And, in my opinion, this is one of the best looks they have created so far (no wonder, as it was created by Lucia Pica).
Khazaria is the look that represents the “decadence of an eastern European empire, refined splendour of royals at court in a bygone middle-age era.” There is a series of four looks planned by the brand and this is the first one.
Products that were used:
- Anti-ageing Moisturiser SERAPHIC VEIL
- Luminous Skin Wand FINE-SPUN LIGHT in Orionis
- Time Defying Foundation SKIN SANCTUARY in Linen Cream, review coming soon
- Flawless Face Powder PRECIOUS VELVET in
Here are the newest offerings from two amazing beauty brands – Elemis and L’Occitane.
Elemis Pro Collagen Cleansing Balm, £39.50 for 105 g

As for L’Occitane, they’ve just brought out a Cherry inspired skin care collection.
You can get the following products:

I personally really love lilac and rose shades in makeup (and only in makeup), as they help to create a youthful and fresh look. Such shades are amazing for Spring, so the new Bobbi Brown’s Lilac Rose collection is just spot on.
This collection includes:
Lilac Rose Eye Platte (LE), £45
Eight eye shadows in dusty pinks, heather greys and lily shades that complement all skin tones: Ivory Eye Shadow, Heather Brown Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow, Pale Rose Eye Shadow, Dusty Lilac Eye Shadow, Barely There Eye Shadow, Black Chocolate Eye Shadow, Stormy Grey Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow, Pink Lily Metallic Eye Shadow.
Lilac Rose Shimmer Brick (LE), £32
Featuring bright pink, golden pink, and icy pink pearl pigments.
Lip Gloss (LE), £17
