Pierre Hardy is known for his eccentric prints and shocking colors. This time he gets to express himself in different style, the make-up. The lucky brand that gets to team up with him is NARS. Available in blush and polish, you can definitely feel his spirit and art in each stroke. I love the geometric and avant-garde design on the blush and the provocative nail polish colors.
The blush is available in 2 tones — Boys Don’t Cry (Pink Grapefruit) for a fresh and girly shade of pink and Rotonde (Tiger Lily) for a more earthy and natural tone. Both are created specially with Pierre Hardy’s iconic print. With silky texture and shimmering result, they will bring out the softness and radiant glow out of you! Each is priced at US$41.
Now, let’s talk about the other hot stuff, the nail polish collection! Available in 6 amazing sets, you can wear them individually or if you’re feeling creative, mix and match as you please. The colors are so pretty I’m having trouble choosing which set to get! Each is priced at US$29.
Following my report on last Saturday’s event, I would like to introduce Utama Spice. When I first walked into the venue, I couldn’t help but noticing a strong herbal scent. I don’t normally go crazy over herbal but this one is absolutely different. They were actually quite refreshing and very calming. Their little showcase was located in the middle of the pathway and it immediately caught my attention.
Bali is famous for its natural resources, and this inspired Utama Spice to be creative in turning them into something organic, fresh, healthy and pure. Based in Ubud, an area that’s known for its art, culture and well-being, Utama Spice was established in 1989 and incorporated in 2000. Having been in the aromatherapy industry for years along with careful researches, they manage to create only the best products from best ingredients — from body care such as soap, body butter, lotion, lip balm to essential oil and bug spray! Everything is made au natural to benefit our body (and soul).
I love getting my nails done and colored, which is why I’m constantly updating myself with latest colors. For this Spring 2013, I’m so excited and curious to try YSL and Deborah Lippman. As you know, I have soft spot for glitter things and these are simply adorable!
First, let’s talk about YSL, they call the collection La Laque Couture Tie and Dye. Available in 4 irresistible colors, what makes them unique is that your top-coating experience won’t ever be the same again because as you can see, each bottle consists of layers that you can apply individually, it depends on what you want! Apply the coat for sheer & glittery result, or the color base for sugary result. They look so sweet I just wanna lick them! US$25/each.
Deborah Lippmann has another idea in mind. She has successfully make a fine blend between black glitter and soft pastel hues. I never thought about this before so I find it quite interesting. This time, she’s playing with 3 extra-sweet colors of mint, pink and black & white. They really remind me of ice-cream.. yum yum! US$19/each.
Gloss is definitely one of my must-have make-ups. I can never leave the house without having it in my bag. With so many brands out there, it is quite difficult to choose which one to bring home. So, my mission today is to help you out in picking which gloss is good and suitable for your lips. Here are my top 5!
