Holidays are over? Of course, they aren’t. Not with this collection by Dior. And even when they are actually over, we’ll still have these pretty things left. This collection looks very traditional and holiday like. It has all the gold in it and all the red and glitter. All the things we’re used to have for holidays. Is that a good thing? Depends on how you look at it. On one hand, it’s always nice […]

Remember the beautiful Deborah Lippmann nail colour duo from last year? Roses in the Snow? You don’t? Then see here 🙂  Deborah Lippmann Roses in the Snow swatched  Anyway, I loved Roses in the Snow so much I was very excited to see two new Deborah Lippmann holiday nail colour duos released this year. Not one, two! Awesome. Those colour duos are pretty much a matching nail colour and glitter shade that you can top the nail […]

This eye palette by Make Up For Ever is the fourth one we got after Make Up For Ever changed their eye palettes design. I do like this new layout that got to be more square and more professional, I guess. There are some interesting shades here, and most of them are not even about the season, they are the kind of shades that you can wear and enjoy on a lot of occasions. The […]

Matt lip colour: the catches

Matt lip colour is a sweeping trend. I mean, it’s so big it actually overflowed into nail colour and triggered matt textures there. Now it starts overflowing into eyeshadow, that’s how big it is. Matt textures are lush, languid, luring, so it’s no surprise they trended so much, especially for holiday season, when it’s all about special occasions and going out. As good as matt lip colour texture sounds (and looks, sometimes), it’s not an […]

Essie Kimono-Over fall 2016 collection swatched

The theme of this collection is pretty clear from the name of it. Kimono-Over. It has to be Japanese, right? I mean, there’s no way around it 🙂 Let’s see how Essie interpreted this theme in their usual batch of six shades. At first glance, I see here some green. Love that 🙂 And then a little nude, a little deep and dark, a little bronze and a little red. There are some rich colours […]

Remember I told you that pink kicked in pretty strong this holiday season? That pink is trending? That pink is the new red in certain ways? Uh-huh. Here we go with Libre Synthetic de Chanel holiday collection confirming and reflecting this trend. There’s pink here. And it’s awesome. Because it’s fresh and new. Once again, pink in summer is to be expected and a little boring, even though it makes total sense amid the summer […]

Starstruck for holidays? Sounds good. Very good. Sounds sparkly and shiny and shimmery. Sounds like fun. Sounds like joy. Starstruck is a great holiday collection name. No, really, holiday season, stars, beautiful manicures, starstruck. It all makes perfect sense 🙂 I can’t wait to see those shades, CND. Do you know what CND abbreviation means, by the way? Creative nail design. Do you know something else? This brand actually invented SHELLAC. Now that’s impressive. It’s […]

Shalimar? I guess, we’re about to see something related to a very classic perfume in this holiday makeup collection by Guerlain. The collection is very Guerlain like. It’s concise, that is, there are not that many products in it. It’s packaged beautifully in navy blue with gold. It’s classy, breathing with tradition and holiday season atmosphere. It has a scented shimmering powder in it, in case you’re wondering 🙂 And Meteorites Perles. And Terracotta. And… […]
