Let’s see what’s in it and get a good feel for fall makeup which is going to step in place of colorful […]

Summer is bright and hot. The same is true about summer manicure and make up shades. But summer can be tender. And romantic. And soft. These three nail polish colours here are like a breath of fresh air after all the bright shades we see in summer collections. They are wedding like shades. Speaking about weddings that don’t happen that often, unless you have a ton of lady friends who keep getting married and asking […]

Tom Ford doesn’t have eye shadow in their permanent make up range. Which makes it really interesting to try out their limited edition eye shadow from Soleil summer 2015 collection. Especially as it’s an eye shadow duo, and it comes in two different textures – cream and classic eye shadow texture, or powder and cream, as Tom Ford make up team puts it. Although, I actually have questions about this combination… But let’s as usual […]

Yellow slipper 🙂 That’s what YSL has prepared for us this summer, huh? Okaay. This summer collection by YSL left me pretty much indifferent. I just can’t have any more pink shades for lips. I’ve had enough of them, to say the least 🙂 Also, I don’t like the quality of some YSL make up products. So, the only item in their summer 2015 make up collection that caught my attention is this ever so […]

Lancome French paradise – eye shadow palette and nail polish – swatched So, French paradise, huh, Lancome? Ok, let’s see.

Because those rose and coral shades for lips and cheeks that are part of this collection too just make me go too sleep 🙂 They are so generic. There’s also cream eye shadow stick, but I’ll […]

Coral almost always shows up in luxury brand summer collections. Especially in lip colour and nail colour. And in blush colour. And in bronzers 🙂 But what do you do, if you don’t really like coral in make up? Or if you do like it, but it doesn’t really become you that much? Well, I have to tell you, I don’t love it. I do wear it sometimes for variety sake, but it’s far from […]

What lip shade do we see in summer make up collections by luxury brands every year? Anyone? Not coral, although that’s a really good guess. Who said that? Fuchsia. That’s it. Good job 🙂 Every summer there’s just no escape from fuchsia in lip colour territory. Lipstick and lip gloss and any other kind of lip colour products keep coming our way in fuchsia. This summer we have fuchsia for our lips by Dior, Givenchy, […]
