Recently Laura Mercier released a limited edition body bronzer and new shades of cheek sticks.

Kinetics Just Married is the lightest nail polish from all the 10 shades of Kinetics Magnolia Summer 2014 Collection (swatches/ photos). As the name itself suggest this color can also be used by all brides to be in their special day for a elegant manicure.
Now @kineticsnails.com, @margaritabelska.com, @kiriloff.ro
Kinetics Just Married Nail Polish (€6.00/ 25.00 Lei/ £3.60 for 15 ml/ 0.5 fl oz) is a bright pasty white, a perfect pure white without any grey or yellow undertones. The color looks fully opaque in two coats and delivers a shiny effect. In one coat it looks semi-opaque and a bit streaky and uneven so I totally recommend applying the second coat but not the third as the polish may be to thick. Continue Reading
Manhattan has released last month two new Soft Mat Lipcream shades as part of its limited edition Manhattan Retro Glam 2014 Collection (info, swatches, photos). As both shades are new and limited edition I got them both and wore them for the last couple of days.
Now at Manhattan counters, DM and local drugstores.
Manhattan Soft Mat Lipcream Shade #02 (€4.00 for 6.5 ml) is a medium-light peachy coral shade with warm undertones. This lip cream is something in between a lip color and a lip gloss but with a soft matte finish. It delivers a fresh pigmented coraly shade, which changes the natural lip color as it has a good pigmentation but without looking very harsh on the lips. Continue Reading
The biggest eyeliner launch even is happening this summer and comes from Benefit which presents its new They’re Real Push-Up Liner, a revolutionary eyeliner that took 5 years of research to finally be launched at its perfection. Benefit will also launch 2 complementary products like They’re Real Remover and They’re Real Mascara.
U.S. Launch Date – 27 June 2014 at Sephora and all Benefit counters
U.K. Launch Date – late June 2014 at Sephora Continue Reading
The other day I posted on Chiprofile’s FB page but also on Twitter a sneak peek of the upcoming Estee Lauder Perfectionist Youth-Infusing Makeup SPF 25. It looks like Estee Lauder will be launching a new foundation, which I’m guessing it will hit counters in a few weeks.
I don’t have any details yet but as I promised I will post again once I do. If the new Perfectionist Youth-Infusing Makeup SPF 25 foundation will be as good as the best-selling Double Wear than I’d better start saving. Judging by the name I don’t have high expectations that this will have a matte formula as I’m thinking more for a natural finish with a dewy or fresh glowing complexion. Continue Reading

The other day I gave you a preview of Manhattan Festival Icon Soft Rouge Lipstick which is one of the three limited edition shades of Manhattan Hippie Yeah Collection (info, photos) released last month.
International Launch Date – mid April until end May 2014 at Muller, DM and local drugstores
Manhattan Festival Icon Soft Rouge Lipstick (€3.99) is a medium raspberry pink with cool undertones. The color applies smoothly and evenly across the lips delivering a subtle shine which give lips a fresh appearance. It has a creamy formula which feels incredibly lightweight on the lips without drying them out. Continue Reading
Melkior has recently opened its first store in Saint-Tropez, the most famous resort of Cote D’Azur also known as French Riviera.
Melkior offers a large spectrum of beauty professional products for face, eyes, lips and nails. The first Melkior product I’ve ever tried was a nail polish named Pure Seduction (review, swatches) and I couldn’t believe how long lasting it was while the color was extremely pigmented and intense.
