yay – the sun is out we already passed the month of January so what I am trying to say is we are almost done with winter. or at least thats what I extremly wish for. at the H&M Clarashopping I have found this lovely striped dress for 29.90 CHF and as I was returning several bags of old clothes I got a 5 CHF discount voucher that I have used for the dress – so even a bigger bargain!
the color green mixed with blue and white is a cry for summer – not kidding this reminds me so much of the clear water of the ocean. currently I have seen many cool things in the color blue and green. last week at the Estée Lauder press event I was given a fantastic blue eyeliner pencil in the color COBALT BLUE and it is a dream – in fact I am wearing it today on my upper lash line. another color that drew my attention is the KURE BAZAAR nailpolish in KALE – a wonderful dark subtle green! unfortunately the new green is not on the chart yet. more about these nailpolishes soon on the blog.
something new will be out soon by Estée Lauder – a new version of the fantastic ENVY lipstick and it is called ENVY SHINE! so let me tell you that I already like the ENVY lipsticks due to the texture, the pigmentation and the staying power – these buggers last almost a whole day! I found some interesting facts about the ENVY and ENVY SHINE lipsticks:
ENVY (available in 31 colors (26 regular colors))
medium to full coverage
6 hours staying power
creamy and smooth
scent: red currant, tangerine, orange, apple blossom
true vision TM technology
luxurious package with the CLICK!
ENVY SHINE (availabe in 10 colors)
high gloss finish
subtle to medium coverage
4 hours staying power
smooth and soft
scent: chamomile, peppermint
I am sure I will use the ENVY SHINE a lot in spring summer when I can also wear my lovely silk dresses and feel free again 🙂 until then I am more than happy with the ENVY lipstick and will try to update my collection with some new colors. there are 31 different colors available at MANOR Basel – yes, we counted it 🙂 and I am sure I will find something nice.
my two favorite ENVY lipsticks are ECCENTRIC and RED EGO
and I was super lucky to already have two ENVY SHINE lipsticks BLOSSOM BRIGHT a lovely coral pink and INNOCENT a subtle rosy beige
something new by maccosmetics the gorgeous ULTIMATE collection with the lipsticks in their chunky packaging – so in love with the colors I got! and a sheer mystery powder in four different shades – the other new launched collection is called RED RED RED and it puts together the most awesome shades of red – not only for the lips but also for cheeks and nails.
I am so in love with the mac lipsticks and my favorite lipstick color is red – I could not be more happy about the two new collections. the ULTIMATE lipsticks are very creamy and the pigmentation is just beyond! I would wear marque on a day to day base and the scene for an elegant night out – so that is another thing that I love about the collection. it offers a wide range of colors – something for all of us. the RED RED RED collection holds some products that I have already extremely loved before – these are the two lipsticks LADYBUG and SEE SHEER. a little side note – I was a huge fan of the Cindy lauper Viva Glam lipstick unfortunately that was a limited edition and I couldnt find that very lipstick anywhere.. so I think the see sheer is a nice dupe for that maybe not exactly a dupe but for me it is close enough.
