Dolce & Gabbana Summer in Italy summer 2016 swatched

Summer in Italy sounds nice. Especially now that it’s the end of summer and we can go to places like Italy to hang onto summer, hold it a little longer, grab it by the tail and ride with it for a couple more weeks. Summer in Italy is colourful, bright and vibrant. Just like this makeup collection by Dolce & Gabbana. It’s an explosion of colour, a burst of colour, a shower of colour. The […]

Accent on the eyes fall 2016 trend and accent on the eyes versus accent on the lips big makeup clash

This fall season is all about eyes. If you look at fall 2016 makeup collections, you’ll see that a lot of times brands didn’t even bother to come up with limited edition lip products and face products. Instead they threw in a couple of permanent range shades to round up their collections. Ok, Ok, sometimes there are limited edition shades, but only a few. And sometimes there are new additions to permanent ranges there. And […]

Darker than dark manicure fall 2016 trend

Uncategorized

In fall we always get rich deeper hues and shades, so it’s nothing new, and seemingly there’s almost no need to report on this trend. But… this fall this trend changed and transformed and got to be different. When we think fall manicure shades, we usually think darker reds, purples, browns, maybe, with a random deeper green or deeper blue kind of thing. This season what we got is not darker, deeper, it’s as dark […]

Deborah Lippmann Happy Days summer 2016 swatched

Happy Days is what summer is in a lot of ways. So, I think it’s a good name for a summer collection. On the other hand, happy days are scattered throughout our life pretty randomly sometimes, and who said they should necessarily come in summer? Well, this collection by Deborah Lippmann can help to make us a little happier whatever weather’s like, and as far as I’m concerned, it’s pretty universal. All four shades here […]

Giorgio Armani Sepia spring/summer 2016 swatched

This collection by Giorgio Armani is inspired by sepia colour – that is, old photo colour – as we can learn from the name of this collection. It’s spring/summer season collection, although to me it looks more like a summer collection with its rich beige, bronze and brown hues… On the second thought, I know the season when these shades are going to look their best. These beautiful natural colours will look stunning in fall […]

Essie Tropical Lights summer 2016 swatched

Ok, so when I heard the name of this collection – tropical lights – I was like, is it going to be something acid and neon looking? And nineties feeling? Something super duper bright? Like Pacific Coast Highway by ORLY? ORLY PCH (Pacific Coast Highway) summer 2016 swatched  That’s what it sounded like to me. On the other hand, it could be something earth tones like and khaki like. Something jungle like, maybe. When I saw this collection […]

Bobbi Brown Malibu Nudes summer 2016 swatched

Malibu Nudes? Sounds interesting. And contradictory. First, it means we have traditional nudes by Bobbi Brown. Ok, that’s what we’ve come to expect. But when I hear Malibu I immediately imagine something full of hustle and bustle and… well, colour. So, I don’t know what Malibu Nudes are, but I’m sure enough eager to learn. There must be a splash of colour in this collection. Something vibrant. Especially as it’s a summer collection 🙂 And […]

Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector pink shimmer and red shimmer swatched

This here is one cute limited edition of two shades of Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector by Clarins. You can get them separately or in a set in a makeup bag with a flowery pattern limited edition design. At first I wondered why I should even get these two shades released just like that, on their own, not within a collection. But then I saw all the flowers, and they so got me 🙂 Also, […]

Dior Milky Dots summer 2016 swatched

Milky Dots? Sounds interesting. When I look at this summer collection promo photos, it becomes pretty clear where the dot part of it is coming from. Manicure. Ok 🙂 Where’s the milky stuff though? From Milky lip tints. What’s milky about them? I’ll have to wait and see, once I swatch and wear them all. So, I’ll know by the end of this post, I guess 🙂 Speaking about promo photos, I can’t say I […]

Is Life a Beach? No, I don’t think so. Would I want it to be that? No, not really. But there are probably a lot of people out there who wouldn’t mind if life were a beach. Especially in summer. And we can all agree that this set with two nail polish shades released by Deborah Lippmann this summer is majorly cute. And majorly summery. In fact, this little box is simply full of summer, […]
