Make Up For Ever launches Artist Plexi-Gloss, a new lip gloss line with an innovative formula and highly pigmented colors. I’m all for lip glosses all year long but especially during the summer so if we are talking about a smooth, non sticky formula and plenty of colors to choose from then consider me interested on the new MUFE summer lip glosses. If you’ll take a look after the jump I guarantee you will be tempted on shopping for more than just one shade.

Since I first had my first summer vacation in Ibiza about four years ago I promised myself that I will return and this year I was actually planning another Ibiza trip along with my best friend. Hearing about the new limited edition Laura Mercier Un Ete a Ibiza Summer 2015 Collection which is actually translated as a Summer in Ibiza, makes me feel even more restless and eager to find myself once again on that paradise island where people are always happy and party non stop. For me Ibiza was always about having fun, dancing in the clubs until morning and enjoying a Mediterranean tan on a sun bed in the afternoon so I was not really concerned with too much makeup. I wanted to spent as little time as possible in the mirror just because for me a summer vacation is not about a full face makeup so I always bring with me only the essentials. Seeing that Laura Mercier Summer in Ibiza collection features only a couple of products, makes it the perfect travel summer collection.
Calm, serenity, balance—let them surround you. The mood is quiet and relaxed. The look is effortless and discrete. Modern, veil-like shades of green merge with mauve, wheat and navy. Decorate the eye with these matte sateen watercolor-like finishes. The face is fresh with a flush of color to the cheeks and a soft, muted lip. Textures are refined for a mood that is discretely cool.

This season Collistar launches Art Design Lipstick Collection which features 18 new lip shades with a creamy texture and an intense and highly pigmented color but also the same number of complementary lip liner shades. There is a shade for everyone in this new Collistart Art Design lipstick line, from nudes and naturals to soft peachy and pink shades which are perfect for a fresh everyday look to those intense and bright fuchsia, orange and corals which are perfect for summer and dark red, brown or chestnut that will give you an instant elegant, classy or mysterious look. The Italian actress Margaret Made was chosen as the face of Collistart Art Design Lipstick campaign.
Lips like a ‘Work of Art’, with the help of this exquisite, irresistibly appealing, high-performance lipstick. Its attractive design is a small masterpiece of Italian-made creativity. An additional winning factor is its pleasant, creamy and enveloping texture and its full, vibrant colour that makes the lips instantly more sensual. Day by day, thanks to the precious red berry extract, it reduces fine lines and redesigns the lips, leaving them fuller and smoother. The set also contains a Professional Lip Pencil in a shade that matches the Lipstick perfectly.

A couple of weeks ago I enjoyed the view of Kinetics Polar Dream and Glitter Storm nail polishes on my nails for a few days. They are both new nail shades, part of Kinetics Penguin Galaxy Collection (info, swatches, photos) and they go perfectly together or even worn separately, depending on your preference. I choose to wear them differently and test them in two different ways. Check out bellow my full review and enjoy the close-up photos with before and after 5 days wear pictures.
Now @kineticsnails.com, @margaritabelska.com, @kiriloff.ro
Kinetics Polar Dream nail polish (€6.00/ 25.00 Lei/ £3.60 for 15 ml/ 0.5 fl oz) is medium teal with cool undertones which leans more on the green side and has a natural shiny finish. It has a light creamy formula, a little bit thinner but not watery and it applies evenly across the nails. This is the kind of shade that will complement any skin color and nail length and even though it has been released as part of a winter nail polish collection it can also shine on a summer day.

Last week I got my hands on the entire Guerlain Ecrin 1 Couleur Eyeshadow collection (preview, swatches, photos) and I started to have some fun right from the first day as I played with all these new Guerlain spring 2015 eyeshadows, swatching and testing them and here is the first makeup look that I came up with. For this Guerlain spring makeup look I used exactly five shades, that you can see “subtly organized” in the photos bellow and the idea was to create an easy to achieve makeup look that can be day and evening time appropriate, something that will involved a lot of blending and that will definitely complement green eyes. I actually wore this look on the first day of Easter and the new Ecrin 1 Couleur eyeshadows were well behaved during the entire day, without creasing or noticing any fall out. Take a look after the jump if you want to see exactly what were the products I used and how to achieve this simple and easy to do Guerlain spring makeup look that took me about 10 minutes to finish.
Over the past I’ve been enjoying the gorgeous shade of MustaeV Dazzle eyeshadow, one of the four new MustaeV spring 2015 makeup products (swatches, photos) that I recently received. I’m already familiar with MustaeV eyeshadows and their formulas and I’m hoping to increase my collection as I’ve slowly but surely became of fan of this brand. I’ve already posted a new MustaeV Spring 2015 Makeup Look using Dazzle eyeshadow and another two of their shades so go check it out if want.

MustaeV Dazzle Eyeshadow ($13.00 for 1.8 g) is described by the brand as a soft golden peach shadow infused with radiant glitter that provides a velvety smooth application. I see it as a light golden peachy pink glitter with undertones and a super intense pearl finish. This shade is very luminous and warm and has a super silky texture that feels incredibly smooth when I swatched it with my fingers or apply it on the eyelid with a brush. Continue Reading
