Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Summer Glow summer 2016 swatched

I don’t know about you, but when I think summer and Estee Lauder in one and the same thought, I always wind up thinking Bronze Goddess. You know why, of course 🙂 Bronze Goddess is their summer makeup collection signature name, and it’s been that for a while. There are two things I happen to like about these collections by Estee Lauder. One, they usually release some sort of palettes here. I love palettes. Two, […]

There are so many searches in my blog for Givenchy Le Rouge Magnolia I decided to write about it a little sooner than planned 🙂 What are those editions by Givenchy like? You know how Le Rouge by Givenchy comes in this super hot (as far as I’m concerned 🙂 ) black leather tubes? Well, Couture Editions of this lipstick come in patterned leather, printed leather, coloured leather. That is, there’s something limited edition about […]

Deborah Lippmann Great Balls of Fire swatched

Let me start by saying that this happy, bright and summery shade is Sephora exclusive. And it’s a pity, because the shade is nice, and I don’t like it being limited to one venue only. On the other hand, if the shade is great, we might as well take some effort to hunt it down, I guess. It’s a matter of personal choice. This shade is a new gel lab pro formula which works mighty […]

Givency Les Saisons swatched

That’s a very interesting collection name – Les Saisons. We get seasonal collections by luxury brands – and not just luxury ones – all the time, but I’ve never seen a collection that’s called The Seasons. It would be logical enough, I guess, to presume that it’s an all season collection, all year round collection, that’s meant to help us look gorgeous anytime and all the time? Yep, that’s what it is 🙂 Ok, I […]

Burberry Runway spring/summer 2016 swatched

Burberry runway makeup collections are those small and ever so limited editions that reflect the makeup looks from actual Burberry catwalks and help us easily create our own looks in tune with the latest Burberry trends and seasonal makeup trends in general. Those collections are usually small but most sophisticated in terms of textures, shades and design, which definitely appeals to me. This season runway collection by Burberry includes three products: one nail polish colour […]

NARSissist L’Amour, Toujours L’Amour Eyeshadow Palette swatched

Love, Forever Love says NARS. Ok, that’s a good statement to make 🙂 It’s nice when love is forever. My love for makeup is 🙂   This spring NARS released yet another NARSissist eye palette. By the look of it, it’s fifty fifty in terms of shades, neutral and natural in one part and sultry and smoking hot in the other part.   There are some interesting shades here, but mostly it feels solid and […]

ZOYA Petals spring 2016 swatched

Petals is such a nice spring (or summer, for that matter) collection name. Even better than flowers 🙂 Because it’s even more tender. It sets me in a romantic mood, kind of. When I see the six shades though, they look pretty bright to my eye. The second thought that comes to mind after the first romantic wave subsides 🙂 is just how much pink and coral there is here. Which makes this collection very […]

You know what, I’ve come to love Meteorites Pearls by Guerlain. The first time I tried them I was like – wha..? what? That’s it? That’s what it is? That’s what all the hype is about? Well, I was wrong 🙂 This product is awesome. It’s just ever so exquisite, ever so sophisticated, ever so delicate. By all means, it brings out the best in us. There’s something special about this glow Guerlain created, it’s […]

Deborah Lippmann Sweets for my Sweet Shades of Pastel swatched

I’m back to pastel nail shades here. I’m really digging them this summer 🙂 I’ve pretty much already given you my reasoning and explained why pastels seem to work so well for me in summer and why I think you might want to check some of these tender yet colourful shades out. Basically, they cool me down. They are cooler compared to all the hot brights that surround us in summer. At the same time, […]
