SS15 Contouring: Kevin Aucoin and Anastasia

If you are still looking for your perfect contouring product (if you even need it) –  here are two palettes to consider, among so many others I have already posted about.

Kevin Aucoin and Anastasia Beverly Hills SS15 Contouring

Kevin Aucoin The Contour Book The Art of Sculpting + Defining ($59 from Sephora)

Back in the days, KA contouring and highlighting products were among the very few available – so it is a classic already. In this palette you get:

  •  0.08 oz The Celestial Powder in Candlelight
  •  0.06 oz The Celestial Powder in Starlight
  • 3 x 0.06 oz The Essential Eyeshadows

SS15 New Cheek Products: NARS, Stila and Smashbox

I’ve chosen three new blush launches that look absolutely incredible, and should be amazing.

NARS Dual-Intensity Blush SS15 new beauty

NARS Dual-Intensity Blush ($45 from Sephora)

I believe these will be a huge hit, especially considering how popular the original NARS blushers are.   Dual-intensity blushes can be used both dry and wet, also can be worn alone or layered together.

Available in: Fervor – shimmering soft pink/ sparkling deep coppery rose, Panic – shimmering shocking fuchsia/ shimmering orange-pink, Jubilation – sparkling yellow gold highlighter/ shimmering soft nude-peach, Adoration – sparkling baby pink/ shimmering hot pink,  Craving – sparkling seashell pink highlighter/ shimmering beachy bronze,  Frenzy – sparkling soft pink-gold highlighter/ shimmering bright tangerine orange

SS15 Sheer Lipsticks: Givenchy, Lancome, Urban Decay and Bare Minerals

New season – new lipstick, right? Here are some of the variants which you can consider. I have already posted about a lot of new lipsticks (browse here), and here are even more. This time it’s all abut the sheer, glossy, balmy textures. And, yes, there will be a separate feature about different ones.

First of all, here is a preview of Givenchy’s Rouge A Porter which comes in a chic thin leather tube and is a glossy sister of my favourite Le Rouge.  Available for £25 from Harrods.

Please excuse the bad quality of the photos, they were made with a phone camera + a bad light in store. But, hopefully, it will give you an idea of what to expect.

Guerlain Terracotta and Eye Party Collections for SS15

Guerlain brought out a real eye candy which is their Terracotta Natural Healthy Glow Powder Duo, $53 (Neiman Marcus and Bloomingdales).

This is actually a powder which is lighter than the usual Terracotta, so it will look amazing on  the paler skin tones, creating some warmth and glow. There is a reviving pink for Blondes or apricot for Brunettes. You can mix the two shades together or use them separetely. And how gorgeous is that compact?  And don’t forget the signature scent of  freesia and orange blossom, tonka bean and vanilla.

The brand also released a new mascara and single eye shadows, which seem to be a new popular format as a part of their Eye Event collection.
