I’ve never been as big a fan of cream eye color singles as I am this season… there seemed to have been a fundamental technological change that has made them better than ever before. Shiseido makes a bold statement with its new Paperweight Cream Eye Color and Inkstroke Eyeliner, both inspired by the Japanese art of calligraphy. Both are formulated as cream shades, but so unlike anything else in the market.

Hello August!! I am annoyed that the months are speeding past, and I seem to be having less time to play and have fun with makeup. All is not lost though, with Chanel’s latest collection of makeup specially designed for free expression, we can all enjoy makeup artistry in our daily lives!
Chanel Ombre Premiere Collection is a permanent range of makeup to dress up the eyes. Instead of pre-decided quads, there is an extensive range of eyeshadows in 2 different textures that you can layer and mix-and-match at will. There are 24 amazing colors, from easy-to-wear neutrals to bold statement colors, in a variety of sumptuous matte, satin and metallic finishes.

My first encounter with Zoeva was in the form of a concealer buffing brush, which has outshone every designer / luxury brand to become my daily companion. This is my first proper experience with Zoeva makeup, and if these The Basic Moment palettes are anything to judge by, I can foresee my collection growing rapidly!

Dior has an unusually vivid color palette this Summer, and the theme Care & Dare has a rather ubiquitous sense of joie de vivre. The juxtaposition of carefree and cared-for, is absolutely nonsensical, but it is exactly the spirit of fun that makes this collection worth getting out of bed for.

It has been awhile since I reviewed any YSL makeup, and it feels to me that the brand has recently renewed its efforts to better engage with its fans. After what seems like a long hiatus, YSL is finally giving us new innovative products, rather than relying on fancy limited edition packaging to drive sales. So, armed with a fistful of new releases, let’s delve back into the world of YSL!

Some eyeshadow palettes are designed for pros in mind, or those seeking to create a bold “Instagrammable” look. These are usually not quite wearable on a daily basis… and few manage to tread the thin line successfully. SUQQU’s Designing Color Eyes 02 Hikaritouka appears at first glance to be rather exotic with its pop of orange, but I soon discovered it is much more versatile than it seems!
