MAC: Giambattista Valli

Hi genies
main.original
Uuuuhh keep your eyes peeled for these goodies hitting the shops…The collection of lipsticks created in cooperation between MAC and designer Giambattista Valli will be available from July 9th. The shades are inspired by garden flowers – reds, pinks and corals. What’s not to like?!

Each color represents pieces of fabric from my dresses, and each is inspired by florals and the beauty of a woman.

Yves Saint Laurent Volupté Tint-In-Oil

Hi genies
Yves Saint Laurent have come out with some new lip goodies! Check out these gorgeous shades:

Aaand here is what sephora.com has to say about them:

What it is:
A revolutionary lip color with a lip tint suspended in a deep conditioning oil.
What it does:
Coat your lips with this lip tint for a lightweight texture that instantly melts onto lips. It is infused with a blend of four essential oils for deep hydration: apricot kernel oil, coriander fruit oil, jojoba seed oil, and possiflora edulis seed oil. Its exclusive applicator envelops the lips in full color and allows for a precise and uniform application. Lightweight and non-sticky, this lip tint offers a new and luminous shine while the tint effect enhances the natural beauty of the lips—making it the perfect combination for youthful looking lips.

I for one am definitely excited for these! What about you? Unfortunately, as it is a YSL product, they are quite pricey – 32$ for one.

Hi genies
It’s that time of the year again…summer is over and the days are slowly getting colder, darker and grey…but fear not! At the same time, you can finally whip out those gorgeous berry and plum shades that have been slumbering in your makeup cabinet over the summer.

YSL: Or Rose

Hi genies
After Rose Gold has taken the jewellery and fashion world by storm, it is only natural that it has now found its way into the elite beauty industry. YSL have created a special edition of the much-loved Touche Eclat to add a beautiful hint of rose-gold radiance to your face this summer. But not only that, the Touche Eclat Or Rose will be accompanied by a primer, powder, blush compact and blush brush to further make sure your skin is illuminated perfectly with a subtle glow that makes you look rested and refreshed even if you’ve been up partying on the beach all night 🙂

Intensely admired for her evil elegance, despite her efforts to instill fear in the hearts of generations, this icon casts a spell of absolute adoration with sensuous shades so wickedly gorgeous, who needs beauty sleep?

Ooohhh, new movie AND new make up? What more could you want? 😉

Cat Eyes…

Hi genies
One of my favourite eye makeup looks just has to be a good pair of cat eyes! They are dramatic, feline and super flattering – and they certainly never go out of fashion…what more could you ask for? Whether you wanna go full on or a little more subtle, there is a variation of this look for everyone 😉
