Summer is well and truly here, and nothing is more welcome in my makeup stash than the latest glow-inviting collection from Tom Ford Summer Soleil 2019! Well-loved staples have been reformulated, and there are a couple of new and innovative lip products to pamper and delight. Here is a look at the main items to covet and hold.

It has been awhile since I had the opportunity to review SUQQU collections, and I was pleasantly surprised to see how adventurous the brand has grown. I’m excited by color, and I found the latest capsule release exclusive to the UK to be a refreshing change. It is a concise collection comprising of an Eyeshadow Compact, 2 Pure Color Blush palettes, 2 Matte Lip Crayons and a new Holographic Glow Crayon. I received some of these last week, and am delighted to share them with you today.

Lunasol is hitting hard and strong these few months and I’m loving it! After a rather strong handed fall and winter season last year, the brand is switching things up and going back to the classics with its best loved The Beige line. If you hadn’t already seen it, there are 2 huge (for any Japanese brand) 10-shade eyeshadow palettes that are the stuff of dreams for all neutral lovers. And plenty of cheek and lip options too to accompany the look.

This Spring 2019 has been a fairly quiet one for me… I’ve not really been feeling many of the mainstream collections from the usual brands, in any case pastels and candy hues were never my thing. But Chanel takes a different approach with its Le Blanc makeup line this year, going for skin-like glow to get us transitioning into summer, and I’m all for it!

The Japanese typically favour soft pastels colours for Spring, so it is a wonderful surprise to see Kanebo design an entire collection of makeup around the colour red. For Kanebo, red symbolizes the essence of life, and defines the complexion. So to bring out everybody’s inherent beauty, Kanebo has developed its own 5R color story that has a different hue and intensity of red pigment to suit every skin tone and imbue it with a natural healthy color.

I may be a little behind the times, but it feels like I’ve only just gotten hold of the Lunasol Winter 2018 collection a few weeks ago. The first weeks of this year have been incredibly busy and with Ezra starting Primary School, I’m always out of the house before the sun rises, and dead asleep by 9pm. Initially I thought I’d have to do my makeup at work, but surprisingly the Lunasol Winter 2018 pieces are so easy to use that I’ve been living on it! Come take a look.
