Colour and care, man. Wherever you go. Whatever you do. It’s going to catch up with you 🙂 First it invaded lip colour and has been pretty much ruling it ever since. Now this trend got so big it overflowed, sort of, to nail colour. Even though the good old classic rule of – we paint lips and nails one and the same colour – doesn’t work anymore. Or else, it works, you just don’t […]

MAC Viva Glam Ariana Grande & MAC Viva Glam Ariana Grande 2 swatched

This collaboration of MAC and American singer and actress Ariana Grande – or else, two collaborations 🙂 – made me think about this big dilemma of lipstick and lipgloss and combining them in one makeup, say, topping one with the other. Before I get to this dilemma though, let’s look at the products in both collaborations to see what they are all about. Both mini collections have two items in them. One lipstick shade and […]

Believe it or not, we’re back to nudes here. They are imbedded so deeply in our everyday life and have so many fans in all the nooks and crannies of the world that brands keep coming up with their takes on those colours that pretty much let us be ourselves instead of painting us whatever. Nudes are casual, easy, chic, personal, cozy, the closest to the skin of all shades. And there are surprisingly many […]

After my very pleasant experience with CND Vinylux and their Starstruck collection CND Vinylux Starstruck holiday 2016 swatched and seeing how many people are interested in it, I looked at this other consumer nail colour range CND has. It’s an artsier one, as you can tell from its name CND Creative Play. I mean, what can be more artsy than creative play, right? It’s an interesting concept of a bunch of exciting shades that can be combined in […]

Clarins The Essentials Eye Make-Up Palette holiday 2016 swatched

Clarins comes up with these ten shades eye palettes called The Essentials every year around the holiday season. In 2014 this palette was all plum. In 2015 it was nude like. And we’ll talk about what it’s like this year a little later. As far as I’m concerned, it’s just always nice to have an eye palette with enough shades in it to create several looks that will be different and won’t feel all the […]

Wrapped in Glamour. How cool is that? It’s like a perfect name for a holiday nail colour collection. I love this collection name so much. Sets the right mood in a second. I want it. That’s for sure. I want to be wrapped in glamour for holiday season and then some. Anyway, Morgan Taylor is a professional nail colour brand, and their nail colour quality proved to be very solid. I enjoyed it a lot. […]

Sparkle Clash? Sounds good to me. YSL holiday collection from this year is compact, dazzling in its design and has it all. Face, eyes, lips, nails, it’s all covered for you here. You’ll be most happy with this collection though, if you love lip colour, really really love it, because there are nine different lip shades here that come in three different textures. Isn’t that great? Doesn’t it warm your heart, if you are a […]

Aren’t you tired of all the gold, silver, red and sparkle in makeup and manicure yet? Or should I say – how exactly tired are you of all of the above? 🙂 I’m a little tired. Although there are some nice holiday collections, holiday shades and holiday products out there. But I’m already feeling like some bright colours. Feeling like something different. Say, this collection here by ANNY. It’s full of life and vibrance. It’s […]

Urban Decay relaunched their Vice lipstick range not too long ago. There are a hundred shades in it now. Did you hear that? A HUNDRED shades 🙂 Sounds like bliss to me. I just hope the formula is good. To tell you the truth, this hundred shades thing is exactly why I buy professional makeup from time to time, even though I prefer luxury market textures, generally speaking. Whatever you might say about lush textures […]
