The first times around Burberry did holiday makeup collections, they were so traditional, I was like almost falling asleep, in all honesty 🙂 I was thinking – yeah, yeah, I know, gold on the face, gold on the eyes, red on the nail, red on the lips.

First things first – yep, all these three things last and hold and then some. I mean, you can like wear a black mask on your face after you apply them, and they won’t stain it. It’s amazing, really. I love that. Me being me, if I could possibly stain my clothes or everything around, for that matter, with my foundation, I’d be sure to do it. You can bet on that 🙂 So, I […]

I’ve told you many times about the colour and care trend in makeup. It’s been going on in all planes and territories – in nail colour (and care), lip colour (and care), all over the place. And you know how I’m mostly skeptical about these type of products, because once you try to do two things at the same time, it doesn’t always work so well. You do remember, how to me, Lip Lover by […]
