NEW : LANCOME Lip Lover

lancome-lip-lover-collection

Lancome unveils the new must-have from the IN LOVE range, Lip Lover.
Following on from Rouge In Love, the ultra-addictive versatile lipstick, Gloss In Love, the brilliantly styled light-catcher lip gloss and Baume in Love, the phenomenally subtle moisturizing balm, Lip Lover is just the product trendsetters everywhere have been waiting for! An essential accessory for every occasion to bring out the personality of every look. Lip Lover is the perfect match for lips. Colour, shine and care all in one – quite simply lip-changing!

 

Forget everything you thought you knew about pink… Lancôme reinvents the emblematic colour of femininity with its biggest ever palette of pinks specially created for lips: 18 feel-good shades divided into two colour families.

Lancome-Lip-Lover

 

 

Lip Lover has a trio of best assets:

– Colour: infused with lipstick pigments, the shades melt into the intensity of lips’ natural colour to truly reveal their beauty. Deep colours, without ever feathering.

– Shine: “made-to-measure”, subtle and re-plumping shine that can be built up and intensified layer by layer; a little, a lot or all the way! Its secret: an ultra-shiny, non-sticky silicone-infused oil allowing for a glide-on texture that smoothens out any irregularities on application. Fixed to the pigmented layer by adhesive polymers, the shiny film remains at the surface, protects colour and perfects it with a mirror-finish effect as well as preventing feathering.

– Lipcare: emollient and moisturising agents make up no less than a third of the formula.

The on-lip result is 8hr moisturisation and lips are nourished as well as instantly comforted thanks to this exceptionally soft and generously rich formula. A declaration of love for lips!

HOW DO YOU USE IT?

Untitled-1

 

 

 

 

Start off with clean brows, and using light strokes, feather in the darker shade of your pencil, to either fill in your brows, or to create a better shape.

Next, use the lighter side, the highlighter, to outline below the brows, so as yo define the brow shape better.

Finally, blend it out with your fingers or a brush

Make Up For Ever launches 76 new brushes!!

 The brush has always been an essential tool for MAKE UP FOR EVER. We have seen the brush range evolved over the years, and today it has reached a whole new level of perfection.

The brand new collection of 76 brushes is useful and highly creative, innovating and ambitious, bold and radical. It meets all the needs and desires of makeup artists and makeup brush enthusiasts around the world. There is one -more than one – for each and every one of us, from our everyday ‘must-haves’ to more specific and customized tools to create the most elaborate artistic effects, whether using powdery or creamy textures.

With this new range of brushes, there is an even stronger link to the world of painting and artistic creation that is cherished by Dany Sanz. The brush is more than ever an extension of the hand and artistic tool.

 

 

The lovely people of MUFE Singapore sent me two of the new brushes (They have only launched THREE of the 76 brushes so far in Singapore)

I love this brush for highlighting the cheeks! It is ridiculously soft and feels sensational on the skin! The size is also great for applying highlight to just the top of your cheekbones

This one Im OBSESSED with at the moment!! It is not only crazy soft, but it gives a flawless foundation application each time! Yes I know the name of the brush suggests its for buffing out cream blushes but I use it for foundation and its AMAZING! and it is dense enough to provide just the right amount of product each time, unlike other brushes that “eat up” your foundation once the brush touches it. LOVE THIS!!

NEW: MakeUpForEver HD Cream Blush

HD 2014 Official Model Shot (SG)

More fusional than a powder, more sensorial than a cream, the HD Cream Blush is a keeper! Its texture-free second-skin finish brings flattering freshness and controlled shine to the apples of the cheeks, producing a stunningly real finish.
A «barely there» effect that manages to change everything, the colour of HD Cream Blush flushes to the surface of the epidermis, as natural as the real deal.

 

Available in an extra-wide range of 16 shades – 15 nude shades + 1 funky «doll-like» coral hue to meet the needs of every skin tone, the HD Cream Blush is extremely easy to blend and offers modular coverage. It’s the quick-shot fix to bringing a healthy flush to the complexion. The on-the-go compact comes with a large mirror to give the skin a flush of colour any time of day, even when its glow starts to fade.

Untitled-1

 

 

It’s called a “Cream Blush” but there’s more subtlety to it than that! A cream that’s not really oily and doesn’t stick or shine, an extrafine cream that smoothens the skin to add a transparently light glow, the HD Cream Blush is a seemingly impossible achievement that all comes down to a clever mix of oils, pigments and powders:

• Silicone oils, dry oils and light waxes are expertly combined to bring an ultra-soft feel and silkiness that spreads easily but is supremely light with flawless hold.
• Specially dosed for an HD finish, silica powders and synthetic mica ensure softness on the skin and a soft-focus satin finish that conceals imperfections and ensures a radiant complexion without masking the skin’s texture.
• Optimal concentration of pigments combined with transparent natural pearlizers brings sheer, natural colors that are incredibly luminous and do not vanish or turn lackluster as the hours pass.

 

 

 

Here are some close up shots and swatches of 5 of the HD Cream blushers I received from MUFE singapore;

Be enticed by the new bath and body collection infused with a fruity floral fragrance that perfectly creates the aromatic impression of Pear & Pink Magnolia. Let the scent of delicious fruits and delicate flowers linger beautifully on the skin.

One of the most alluring varieties, the red pear is loved not only for its crimson blush and delectable taste, but also for its juicy and inviting, perfume-like aroma. When combined with passion fruit and bergamot notes, this charming pear scent becomes deeply addictive. The scent of juicy pear is blended with a creamy lemon, floral accent ofpink magnolia in a fruity-fresh signature thats playfully elegant. With the addition of jasmine, apricot-scented osmanthus and the violet tone of orris, this harmony of precious notes brings to mind cherished riches of the natural world.
