MAC PRO Lipstick Swatches, Photos

Hello sweeties!

As you know MAC Cosmetics added recently 9 new shades to its MAC PRO Lipstick Collection (promo photos) that I’ve been telling you about in early spring when I posted a couple of sneak peek visuals. The new colors are bright, pigmented, covering lips with an opaque color and giving you the option to choose between fuchsia, orange, eggplant and even a beautiful satin nude. Thanks to MAC Japan which posted a couple of swatches on the official blog we can take a closer look at some of the new shades and see how pigmented they really look on the lips. I’m definitely into pinks and violets but I also noticed that some Pro Lipstick shades do emphasize lip lines while others have a beautiful natural sheen. Take a look for yourselves right after the jump and choose your favorite lip color.

Sisley Phyto-Teint Expert Foundation for Fall 2014

Hello pretties!

Sisley reveals Phyto-Teint Expert, a new very long-lasting foundation which is a major breakthrough for the brand. Sisley wants to fulfill women’s request as they are looking for a foundation that evens the complexion, corrects imperfections while it gives a natural finish, beautiful radiance, staying power to make sure it will last all day without retouching and last but not least anti-ageing, moisturizing and protecting properties.

I’ve always been fond of foundations that offer a natural coverage and a glowing healthy fresh looking complexion all day long so the promise of Sisley that their new Phyto-Teint Expert foundation lasts up to 12 hours should definitely be taken into consideration.
