Estee Lauder Envy Red Extrovert Gloss & Wicked Apple Lacquer swatched

Now that Estee Lauder are done – I think 🙂 – with their big Envy lipstick launches, they, finally, got to lipgloss texture that a lot of people love even more than they love lipstick. I, for one, like lipgloss a lot, almost as much as sheer lipstick 🙂 There’s just something about this mirror shine and gloss on my lips. Lipgloss is easy, it doesn’t take much time or effort to apply, and just […]

Nudes are probably the most commonly worn nail shades in the world. They are easy and can be anything from casual to chic in terms of the look they provide and support. Also, even though nudes can look all the same to some of us, there’s a bunch of them, really, and for those who like them, they are all different. Very much so. Pink, rose, white, beige, coral, cream, lilac and so much more. […]

What nail colour matches your outfit

Uncategorized

I see a bunch of searches in my blog related to how to match your nail colour to your outfit colour. Obviously, there are some very classic guidelines there. Painting guidelines and artistic rules of what colours and shades match and what colours and shades don’t. But there are also personal preferences, circumstances, cultural differences, occasions, your mood for today 🙂 and a whole lot of other things that can modify and alter and challenge […]

Ok, so here goes another promise of colour & care all in one swipe. You know how I feel about doing two in one in makeup. It works only rarely. I prefer when one thing – colour or care – is done well, or else, when it’s done great. But… this time around this promise is made by Bobbi Brown, so we’d better take it seriously  🙂 Especially as Bobbi Brown has already pulled it […]

Urban Decay Vice Ltd Reloaded palette is one of those Urban Decay palettes where we get a bunch of shades helping us to create all kind of looks. When it’s about Urban Decay, I always expect something unusual, something artsy, some colours that I won’t really see in other ranges. And I want to have those shades. The kind of shades where I will go – wow – and, maybe, even have to work to […]

NARS Orgasm is an iconic blush. Everything about it is legendary or just short of that. The name. The shade. The history. Even those who know little about NARS makeup and who haven’t tried it might have heard something about Orgasm blush. I’ve meant to talk about it for a while already. What’s so special about it? Is it worth the hype? Who can wear it? Well, there’s more reason to talk about it now […]

Givenchy Rouge Interdit Vinyl 06 Rose Sulfureux swatched

Here’s new lipstick by Givenchy. Or is it a new reincarnation of Rouge Interdit Shine? We’ll see 🙂 If Rouge Interdit Shine was labeled as Ultra-Shiny Lipstick, Rouge Interdit Vinyl is said to be Extreme Shine Lipstick Illicit Color. Illicit, huh? Interesting 🙂 Ok, so to me it sounds like Rouge Interdit Shine was sheer, which it was, a classic sheer lip colour formula with all the wet shine to it, while Rouge Interdit Vinyl […]

Under the category of – summer is usually vivid and colourful and stuff, and fall is usually more subdued and more traditional – and, yes, I’m talking makeup here 🙂 – I’d like to talk about three eye palettes today that Chanel released to support their new Dimensions de Chanel mascara launch. All three palettes look very fall like, or else, they are universal in terms of seasons, occasions, styles. They are sophisticated, understated and […]

NARS Under Cover summer 2016 swatched

Under Cover? Why Under Cover in summer? Under Cover as in the shade, maybe? I don’t know. What I know is that this collection by NARS is designed beautifully. And that it’s not specifically summery. There are shades in it that can be worn and enjoyed all year round. Shades that are not traditionally summer like. Shades that are chic and that are fresh. But before I even get to all those shades, the boxing […]

Retro trend is really big right now. Not just in makeup. It’s big in fashion, designers keep going back to all kind of decades, centuries and epochs seeking inspiration. It’s big in TV, just think about all those shows and movies we see remade these days. Retro rules the world. The eighties were so big, now as the eighties wave is fading away, the nineties are kicking in taking place of the eighties, claiming our […]
