Essie Lounge Lover collection spring 2016 swatched

Lounge Lover is a very relaxed name for this year spring collection by Essie. A pleasant name. It’s the name of one of the six shades in the collection. Lounge Lover makes me think of two different things. One is vacation and lounging. The other one is a high end hotel lounge with exquisite interior design and luxurious feel about it. Both are good things. I wonder if Essie managed to combine the two in […]

If lip colour is one of my favourites in makeup, Rouge Coco Shine is no doubt one of my favourites in lip colour. It has everything I like about lipstick. A hot sleek and small packaging, a wet shine and a comforting feel about it. It’s almost perfect, given that perfection is not to be quite achieved, so that we always have something to strive for.   This little black thing can give me tons […]

Oh, those nude nail shades. They are adored by so many people across the globe. What is it about them that makes them so special? Well, for starters, they are just so universal. They can be practical and sporty, they can be tender and romantic, they can be high end and dress up like. There’s almost no occasion in the world, no outfit that nude nail shades don’t match. And that’s a great advantage. There’s […]

Those travel palettes always stir mixed feelings and emotions in me. On one level, any palette with a bunch of makeup and shades in it appeals to me to the point of no return almost. Of course, it’s that appealing only till I try out those shades and get not too happy with some of them 🙂 On the other level, I did travel with those palettes initially – all kind of palettes – Chanel, […]

I’m trying out Urban Decay eye pencils here 🙂 In my world, it means I have ten shades of those 🙂 I can’t say professional makeup lines are my destinations most of the time. They are aimed more at makeup artists and at professional catwalk, photoshoots, ect. makeup, and not at real life makeup. But I do find myself going to professional makeup brands for certain things. What are those things?   For starters, makeup […]

Oh, this collection is bright. Much brighter than what spring collections usually are. And that reflects the spring trend. This modern romance trend kicked in, and it’s stronger and more of a standpoint that all those cute and fluffy pastels we usually get in spring season. This is more like summer. Although not quite. If you take a closer look at this trend, you can see that it’s still romance, even if modern and even […]

I’m already getting used to this new form Make Up For Ever artist eye palettes are taking. Remember, they used to be all small and handy. Now they are bigger, square and all professional like. The quality of the eyeshadow is these palettes is solid and… well, professional.   This spring Make Up For Ever Artist released yet another limited edition variation of this palette. There are nine shades in it. And it comes in […]

It would seem to me, a wave of matt frenzy in makeup ocean would be over by now. I mean, it’s been going on for a while now. But I guess, the Old Hollywood bright and velvety lip and nail look is just too lush to resist. Or maybe, this sweeping matt trend is an answer to all the glossy and shiny lip products we were getting couple years back. Anyway, the trend is here […]

Well, for starters, the boxing looks pretty cool. For one simple reason. Because it’s different. Yes, there’s all the shiny gold here, but it mixed with white in an art deco like kind of way as opposed to all the shiny gold we’ve just witnessed in holiday collections.   It’s cool. It’s stylish with a punk twist. It’s very Gwen Stefani. I like it. A lot. It sets the right mood for sure.   As […]

It’s spring time, so we get all kind of pastel greens in all forms and shapes and from all sides and directions. Bud green and mint green and stuff. Believe it or not, what I want to talk today about is Burberry runway fall/winter 2015 collection. You’ll ask why. I’ll tell you why. People differ and styles differ. And I’d like to offer here an easier green, a more comfortabl green, a more wearable green. […]
