Smashbox Love Me Makeup Collection for Spring 2013

Smashbox’s Love Me makeup collection for Spring 2013 is very VDay appropriate,  with all the hearts and the name.

This collection was created in a collaboration with Curtis Kulig,  who created the logo and contains the following products:

Love Me Be Legendary Lipstick (£14/$19) in Love Me (red) and Tempt Me (coral)

Love Me Enhancing Gloss (£14/$19) in  Adore Me (fuchsia pink) and  Charm Me (nude pink)

Love me Paint Pen Eye Liner (£17.50/$24) in

Spring 2013 Lipsticks: YSL, Shiseido and Buxom

I have posted about some new lip products  for Spring 2013 recently but there are even more launches.

YSL Rouge Volupté Shine, £24/$34

A new lipstick from YSL is  enhanced with fruit extracts rich in vitamins and antioxidants that leave lips visibly softer and smoother.  The texture is promised to be hydrating (up to 8 hours; it contains hyaluronic acid spheres) and lightweight.

There will be different shades for different countries. Here are just three shades to give you an idea:

4 Rouge  Danger – deep strawberry red, 6 Pink in Devotion – bright hibiscus pink, 13 Pink in Paris – dried rose pink

 There is a new lipstick range from Shiseido – Perfect Rouge Tender Sheer.

Although I am not a fan of the packaging , I like the idea of  “moist, radiant finish that smoothes the lips with a dewy texture and even application to minimize the look of vertical lip lines”.

There are six shades:  BE302 TOPAZ, BR503 SOCIETY, PK301 PRETTY, RD205 FLORA, RD304 HIBISCUS and

Dior DiorShow Iconic Overcurl Mascara, Mono Wet & Dry Backstage Eyeshadows and DiorShow Art Pen

Finally the eagerly awaited new mascara and eye shadows from Dior are  available!

I am personally a huge fan of DiorShow mascaras and have written about three of them actually:  Unlimited, Extase and New Look.

So I am, obviously, excited about the new member of the DiorShow family which is a Diorshow Iconic Overcurl Mascara (£23).

It’s incurved brush, modelled after professional eyelash curlers,  delivers extreme curl and a stretch-effect formula for spectacularly shaped lashes.

It comes in three shades: Over Black, Over Blue and Over Brown.

There are also a lot of new shades of Diorshow Mono Wet & Dry Backstage Eyeshadows (£22.50/$29) . These are divided into three groups:

  • Timeless essentials, the Nude shades create discreet, flawless eyes for perfect “no make-up” make-up.
  • Fun, refreshing and trendy Pop variations play with

MAC Cosmetics Spring 2013: Year Of The Snake and Viva Glam Nicki2

With so many new offerings (Apres Chic, Strength, Year of The Snake, Archie’s Girls etc)  from MAC I have chosen the products that caught my attention.

I really love the promo image of the Year Of The Snake collection and also the pattern on all the products. My picks  would be Plumful and Cockney lipsticks (£15.50/$15 each). Gorgeous, right?

There is also a new Viva Glam offering!
