MAC Playland Collection (color story & promo photos) was released internationally last month so I’m sure you had time to check it out but I was only able to see in person a few days ago when I visited the only MAC Store where this collection is available. Unfortunately I found the display to be incomplete as some of the products did not arrive while others have been already sold out from the very first days.
Like the name itself suggests this is playful collection, containing bright shades like pink, yellow, blue, green and orange but also a few repromotes. Most of the products are available in limited edition but there are a few new entries as well. In Romania the chromagraphic lip pencils are not available as well as two of the pigments in Neo-Orange and Golden Olive which are anyway repromotes. I actually own a sample size of Neo-Orange and it’s a very bright orange with a matte finish.

MAC PatentPolish Lip Pencil Collection (info, promo photos) is available for quite a while now at MAC Stores but when I attended the event for MAC Alluring Aquatic Collection (swatches, photos) launch I took a few minutes to swatch all the new PatentPolish shades.
If you remember back in March I posted a quick preview with lip swatches of three of the new PatentPolish Lip Pencils so you can go back and take a look if you haven’t already. I believe these shades are a great option for summer, they are quite pigmented, intense and offer a beautiful shine and not to mention the line is large enough so everyone will be able to find at least one favorite shade.

I only got to swatch and play a little bit with the eyeshadows and lip shades so here’s a first impression until I will return with detailed individual reviews for each product. Continue Reading

Here are some of Urban Decay goodies wrapped in the new Perversion Eyeliner Collection.
Like most women, we have a perverse addiction to black eyeliner. Case in point: we’ve added four new formulas to our arsenal—a velvety pencil, a felt-tip pen, a twist-up pencil and a poured cream liner. Whether you prefer a particular format or you have a specific look in mind, we’ve got the black liner you crave.

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.
International Launch Date – May 2014 for Blush Subtil | mid April 2014 for Le Correcteur Pro Palette
