Our friend Kat from Bjooti.net got an exclusive peek at some of the upcoming spring/summer looks from MAC! Here are a few images she took that show off some of the new products we’ll be seeing in the next few months. Those glosses above are, in fact, from the Sugarsweet Collection, as confirmed by a MA friend of mine. Apparently, the colors do not mix because of different densities (?)! Several shadesticks, two mineralize skinfinishes (which look really different from previous launches), some shadows, and even the blush duos from Grand Duos!

Gloss Pur: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6

YSL’s Spring Look 2009 Collection is fun to review, because it is so different from many of the other spring launches this season. Do you remember how we had a lil’ sneak peek a few weeks ago of what was to come? Sure, you have some pastels typical to spring, but then you have such an intense, vivid black that totally negates how spring it is!

Temptalia Recommendations:

Must-haves: Gloss Pur in Pure Raspberry, Pure Lipstick in Romantic Pink, Ivory Beige/Deep Black
Nice-to-haves: Glosss Pur in Pure Fuchsia, Pure Lipstick in Silky Apricot
Skip: Collector Powders (Complexion and Eye), Oatmeal/Petroleum Blue

Nude Look 2-Colour Eyeshadow

Dior’s Lady Dior Spring 2009 Collection features quite a few products, many of them fitting for a subtle spring. I actually had swatches for everything, but I think the Dior display had some items mixed up, so I have to go back and re-do them next time I’m at Nordstrom’s (and hopefully mine has it, since I traveled 30 minutes away to do them last time–sigh!).

So for now, here is a little sneak peek at some of the products from Lady Dior! Continue reading →

Chanel Wild Rose Glossimer ($26.00) is the perfect color if you’ve been looking for a gloss that just subtly enhances your natural lip color by adding a slicked pinked blush and just-barely-visible shimmer to reflect light.

When I first swatched Wild Rose, it looked absolutely gorgeous and lush on the back of my hand. It also looked way more pigmented, so when I actually went to use it… it was not what I was expecting. My immediate reaction was “return, stat!” but since I don’t go to the mall too often, it’s still in my possession. After wearing it a few times, I’ve decided that it makes a nice go-to gloss for everyday wear aka when I’m too lazy to wear any makeup. I just brush this on and my lips look more alive, and my face is a bit brighter.

I like my-lips-but-better (MLBB) colors from time to time, and I do think everyone should have at least one gloss and one lipstick that fits the MLBB criteria. They are colors that will never go out of style, date you, make you look older or younger… they are natural and sophisticated. Exactly what we all need every once in awhile! :)
