Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow!

Hello Flawless
As a MUA I love the natural no make-up make-up look so when I stumbled across Benefit’s Hello Flawless earlier I was quite interested in it.
What Benefit say about this product: Hello…it’s flawless time! Our new oil-free brightening liquid foundation builds from light to medium coverage for a natural complexion you can believe in. It’s you…just more luminous & healthy looking.
I plan on grabbing myself a bottle of this to see if it does actually do what it says on the box and that the shade is correct.
I have always really liked the benefit blush collection and some of their mascara’s but I have always found that the foundations were far to orange, hopefully this will be an exception, so, expect a review on this bad boy as soon as I can get my hands on it 🙂

FACE Stockholm Metallic Plum Red #59

TMAB received some press samples from FACE stockholm some time ago and I am just getting round to blogging about them.
Anyway, this post is specifically about the Nail Polish. It’s a beautiful Metallic Plum Red Colour #59. The polish itself is fairly thick, so, I did find I needed two coats to cover any streaks, that said, I really like this polish, the colour is deep and if you are a nail expert you could get away with one coat.
FACE Stockholm products are only stocked at Victoria Loves Beauty in the UK and it would appear that the FACE Stockholm store, in Manchester, is no longer open, as its no longer listed on their website.

The lovely people over at OCC have provided me with the new Liptar information and I must say they do look completely scrummy. OCC describe this collection as “This Collection is inspired by Psychotropic and poisonous plants. These shades are meant to be paired with a dizzying flash of color on the eyes”

New Illamasqua Site – Make Up Shopping Will Never Be The Same!

I took a strole over to the new Illamasqua site today to find a beautiful new Home page
The Home page is crisp and showcase’s the amazing artistry that is behind the brand!
As I delved further into the new site I came across their new feature Moving Swatch. The Moving Swatch feature is only available on the Lips and Pigment section but I hope it will be rolled out across the entire site.
The new feature shows a model putting on the lipstick or swatching the pigment onto their hands to give you a real life view of what the colour looks like.
This new function could quite possibly change the way we shop for cosmetics online because we will no longer need to travel to the store to check that the colour is what we are looking for as, its right in front of us.
Lets hope that other online beauty stores take note!
