MAC’s new Metallic and Holographic Lips

There are two new lip tends for this season - holographic and metallic. Trust me, you heard it here first, you will be wearing both or either of these come February/March! I've tried both MAC's new offerings, and I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised by the Grand Illusion Glossy Liquid Lip Colour Holographic shine (£18). The name doesn't trip off the tongue, but the product itself is fun and if you like a high shine lip, then this is … [Read more...]

A little blue lipstick called Blue For You landed on my desk last week, and it is perfect for a Blue Monday beauty … [Read more...]
