Givenchy Instant Bucolique Collection for Spring – Summer 2012 – Information, Photos & Prices

Hi everyone!

The time is right to revive the senses with springtime shades inspired by fields of lush blooms. The shades are subtle and the look is fresh, etheral and beautiful.

It’s time to Spring into Summer with Givenchy Instant Bucolique Collection!

Every year, we shake off the winter chill and eagerly look for the first sign that the sun is on its way. Like magic, the pinks, mauves, peaches and lavenders begin to dot the landscape. The colours bloom with the sun’s first rays then, disappear as quickly as a whim.  The red-orange poppy dances in the breeze, sunny, golden rapeseed captures the sun’s glow and wild hyacinth cools the soul with bursts of blush traces.

The fragility of spring is at the heart of the inspiration behind Givenchy Instant Bucolique.  Speckled pastel powders for eyes, face and cheeks leave your skin refreshed and pretty while eyes get a touch of tender green, pink, soft brown and mauve.  Lips get a dose of full bloom color with poppy red.


Le Prisme Blush Bucolique and Le Prisme Visage Bucolique are now available online

Max Factor New Lip Tint Pens Shades for Spring 2012 – Information, Photos & Prices

Hi everyone!

Opulent 1920s glamour sashayed down some of the most celebrated spring/summer 2012 runways, with a decadent flow of Art Deco and Flapper influenced style, as seen at shows such as Gucci, Roberto Cavalli and Galliano. The influence was also seen through the beauty lens, with Pat McGrath, Max Factor Global Creative Design Director, coining it the ‘Modern Vintage’ trend; historically referenced beauty looks brought up to date for a new take on lip trends and technique. Pat is redrawing the lip rules.

The five new intense Lip Tint Pen shades continue to redefine these ‘Modern Vintage’ rules: combining a stylish mix of precise application, the cornerstone of Max Factor heritage, the lightweight and matte innovative formula with on-trend red and pink
shade accents.

Mr Max Factor himself created precise – and celebrated – lip techniques such as the ‘Cupid’s Bow’ and ‘Rosebud Lips’ for Hollywood screen goddesses. Now, 90 years on, women can recreate these 1920s inspired bold lip looks using Lip Tint pens, thanks to its simple precision application and a matte, yet lightweight, finish.

Essie Resort Collection for Spring 2012 – Information, Photos & Prices

Hello lovely ladies!

As I said in my previous article, Essie will launch quite a few collection this spring. Essie’s second collection for spring 2012 is called Resort and if you remember a collection with a similar name existed in 2011.The first spring collection, which is already available for sale is Essie Navigate Her Collection (post with info, photos & prices).

The new Essie Resort Collection for spring 2012 is more like a mini collection because it will include only 4 shades. Two of the shades are really familiar with Tour de Finance and Buy or Not to Buy from Navigate Her but I assure you they are different shades. I will receive a couple of the new nail polishes in near time so I can’t wait to test and review them.

Inspired by the alluring world of glitz and glamour, SHE’S PICTURE PERFECT this resort season.  Striking a fashionable PINK-A-BOO pose on the isle of Cannes or on the streets of Miami Beach,  the paparazzi is always on her toes, trying to get the SURE SHOT.  There is no stopping the frenzy and suddenly, she thinks to herself, NO MORE FILM please… but just like that she snaps back to reality and realize she loves it all!
