Hot new Lipstick Alert!

17 have just added a seriously sexy new lipstick range to their collection. Supreme Shine Lipsticks work bold, virant colours with a new, lightweight formula.

Available in 13 beautiful shades – Barely Blush, Bon Bon, Pink Posey, Kissable, Hot Stuff, If You Please, Red Devil, Rich, Bella, Hot Flash, Day-glo, All About the Sass, Deep Secret.

Hot Stuff

For me red lipstick is like chocolate, I know it’s not good for me but I just can’t resist, but in Hot Stuff I think I’ve finally found my perfect red! Blue toned reds don’t suit me, I find they drain the colour from my face. Coral reds and pinkish reds work better on my skin tone. This, I’d describe as a very flattering cherry red. It’s rich, highly pigmented and fairly opaque. The forumla is easy to apply, slides on, a little waxy and very lightweight. The finish is a classic shine, but not sticky or glossy.

Pink Posey

Purples and Plums are so hot right now! Pink Posey is a very wearable pinky purple. It’s bright and bold and my new party season go-to. Like before it’s rich, highly pigmented and fairly opaque. The forumla is easy to apply, slides on, is a little waxy and very lightweight. The only drawback is it doesn’t have the staying power of regular formulas, but it’s a good excuse to whip it out and reapply.

The LOOK Show 2011

I had a great time yesterday at The LOOK Magazine fashion show, once I fought my way through the crowds at Westfield Stratford City – seriously I’ve never seen so many people in one place!

We were greeted with champagne and a fabulous goodie bag (more on that later) I met some fellow bloggers and industry insiders, which was fab The show itself was a great display of the wonderful British highstreet, as for the beauty it was all polished skin, chizzelled cheeks, bright and bold lips and backcombed hair – 4 of my favourite trends. Sarah Harding modelled, Dionne Bromfield performed and Alicia Dixon, Kelis and Kimberly Wyatt watched on from the front row.

Now for the pics…

Hot Make up Trends from the Met Ball 2011

It’s probably the fashion event of the year, one reserved for the celebrity elite. The Costume Institute Gala Benefit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, known as the met ball,  went bigger, better and brighter as it paid homage to the late, great Alexander McQueen. Most people ask “Who you’re wearing?”, but I want I’m more concerned with “What’s on your face?”

Here are my top trends and beauty queens…

Notice me Lips

Definitely the trend d’jour and showing no signs of fading any time soon were bright lips. They were all at it from Rihanna, Frida Pinto, Dianne Kruger, Nicole Richie… the list goes on. You’d think they were handing out the lippy on the door!

Nicole Richie looked like a 50s screen siren in Jason Wu, rocking scarlet lips.

Jennifer Lopez was one red-hot latino lady with chilli red lips

 Emma Stone wearing Lanvin, dazzles with on trend hot pink lips

Pretty Nude

When I say Nude, I’m not talking about Rihanna’s dress. Rebelling against the bright lip trend, these ladies looked beautiful and classy with the natural, nude and glossy look.

Despite wearing a dress she couldn’t walk in Beyonce’s make up look sizzled… How can someone look sooo fine with an inch of roots and a bog standard bun? LOVE the nude lips.

 Gwyneth Palthrow teamed her Stella McCartney gown with a feminine, natural face.

Emma Roberts allowed her natural beauty to shine through.

Bronzed beauties

There’s a fine line between bronzed beauty and orange overload, but these screen goddesses got it just right. 

Eva Mendez glowing in Stella McCartney.

Isabel Lucas every inche a Grecian goddess with a tanned complexion to match (not to mention bang on trend with the hair accessories).

With a parade of beautiful ladies it’s difficult to choose a favourite, but for me Blake Lively stole to the beauty show.

MAC Quite Cute Mineralize Blush – Giggly

Mac’s new Quite Cute collection, based around cute pastel shades, is just that, quite cute. I love this mineralize blush and the peaches and cream nail lacquers but some of the lipsticks are off the wall, lavender lips, will that ever catch on?

Mineralize ♥ Blush in Giggly

This new and limited edition duo-toned blusher launches in stores this week. It’s described as a “light pink with pearly plum heart”. The two colours compliament each other perfectly. The outer color is a darkened bubblegum pink with subtle blue undertones, while the heart itself is a frosted berry plum. When swirled together, the result is a heavily pinked plum with a soft, frosted sheen. As with all mineralize blushes, it’s qiute light, not cakey and leaves a dewy sheen on the cheeks.

I guarantee you will ♥ this!

As for the ranges other offerings. This peach blush entitled Miss Behave, I would have loved, if it wasn’t for its GREEN centre.

And the lipsticks are fun, but somewhat SCARY.

Overall it’s a CUTE collection. It’s bright, summery, Bold, but a bit too GAGA for me.

London Fashion Week A/W 11 Beauty Trends

As the curtains close on London Fashion week, let’s reflect. What are the key looks we’ll be copying come Autumn? Well, in short, it was all about Pouts, Plats and Pony tails.

Pony tails at Burberry Prorsum

Messy ponytails,alas a look we can all achieve. I hope they didn’t spend long creating this, my hair already looks like this when I wake up.

Although much more polished at Christopher Kane.
