Lancôme New Blush Subtil & Le Correcteur Pro for Spring 2014

Hello sweeties!

Lancome releases this spring 8 new shades of Blush Subtil along with new Le Corrector Pro Concealer Palettes. While in Asia only 6 blushes will be available, here in Europe we will get 2 more of them. The new concealer palettes contain 3 corrective shades and a brush with two different applicators. The colors should be combined and applied in 3 steps. The first step would be to use the right color to correct dark circles, red spots or any other imperfections using the first color from the palette. The second step is to smooth the skin, using the color matching your skin tone which is the shade from the middle. The final step would be to set the product in place using the third color of the palette and a small powder brush.

Orly Hot Tropics Nail Lacquer – Review, Swatches, Long-Lasting Test

Hello sweeties!

Orly Baked Summer 2014 Collection (swatches, photos, info) which was released earlier this month includes 6 new nail lacquers in hot and bright shades, perfectly for the upcoming season. Today I will be showing you Orly Hot Tropics, a shade that I wore last week and attracted quite a few looks. Hot Tropics is definitely a hot magenta purple, not quite a neon but rich and intense, the kind of shade that will attract people’s attention.

It’s truly a rich and intense shade which becomes opaque after the second layer and shows a beautiful natural shine. I have to say those who love purple nail polishes and will get to swatch Hot Tropics will definitely fall in love with it. It’s an elegant and classy shade which looks good on every nail length and skin color. Continue Reading

MAC Pro Lipstick Summer 2014 Collection – First Look!

Hello pretties!

Here is a first look at the new MAC Pro Lipstick Summer 2014 Collection which will be released in two months. No details or color story has been released yet but it’s still nice to be able to see the new shades. Judging from visuals which appear in MAC Summer 2014 Update book the lipsticks surely do seem pigmented and intense. I’m looking forward to seeing more of this collection and hoping the four lipsticks in violet, red, deep purple and magenta are not the only ones included.
