Chérie Chérie Bow…

2013 January 31, Thursday

For Spring 2013, Dior dresses their makeup collection with bows, which the late Christian Dior himself adored, and their famous houndstooth checks.

There’s a lot of pinks here as the couturier found pink to be “the softest of colours” and the colour “of happiness and femininity”.

The star product this in the collection are 2 palettes of 3 eyeshadows, a black eyeliner and a fresh pink gloss.

Below are my picks… I happen to like all 3 nail polishes!

Get in the Pink ladies!

Shiseido Makeup Spring/Summer 2013

2013 January 21, Monday

For Spring this year, Shiseido Makeup launches 25 new shades of Perfect Rouge lipsticks. 15 rich shades of Perfect Rouge and 10 soft shades of Tender Sheer.  From very sexy nude-ish beige to vivid shades like red and fuchsia.

Still keeping to the original camellia-shaped packaging has been updated too. Perfect Rouge remains in it’s slick black case whereas Tender Sheer gets a new red coat.

At the base of each lipstick is embossed with “TOKYO GINZA SHISEIDO“.  A gesture of Shiseido’s confidence that you will enjoy them so much you’ll use it all the way till the words are gone and beyond…

Also, launched are 2 palettes of Luminizing Satin Eye Color Trio and 2 Luminizing Satin Face Color compacts.  All of very soft and shades inspired by the colours of the setting sun on sand dunes and beach grass on Sullivan’s Island in South Carolina.

Enjoy the collection that would suit most, if not all, skin tones… 😉

Available in stores in February.

shades of precious stones….

Creative director of Yves Saint Laurent Beauté, Lloyd Simmonds, said, “Pink quartz, amethyst, pyrite, malachite, azurite, jade, each possesses a hypnotic beauty…”  which i totally agree.  Different kinds of stones bring different kinds of energy to a place or a person…

And the purity and colours of the stones of rich and crystalline shades, were the inspiration for YSL Beauté’s Spring 2013 collection.

Enjoy the shades!
