It's my first day off in ages and you'd think I'd be in bed having a lie-in but oh no! What do I do? Well being a makeup artist, it's off to see the new collections for some of my favourite brands. It's something I try to do once in a while so I get to see what's on offer out there!
I've got 2 days of go sees so here's who I saw today.
I've been hearing loads about the new collection for the Pure Colour Long-Lasting Lipsticks. I've been a huge fan of Estee Lauder from as young as when my mom used to spray herself with White Linen and Beautiful! And boy I got a shock, pleasant of course when I saw the array of gorgeous sumptuous colours. I just had to dive in and try them out and the colours and depth of colour is amazing. Below's a shot of what I had to play with!
I also had the new Pure Colour Nail Lacquer range and boy Estee Lauder's gone rock & roll!! Colours that I never thought they would ever do, green, silver, fuchsia etc. I made my friend put it on and the results were impressive and strong even only with one coat! Have a look.
Both Pure Colour ranges go out nationwide on Monday 28th February. I'd say to get it asap as many shades are being sold out fast!
I also had a chance to pop into the Clarins pop-up shop at 10 Blandford Street. Amidst a cute little set up, there's a juice bar and it smells amazing. The goods on show? A new range targeted at the younger skin. I had a few minutes to play with some of the range and besides smelling really fresh with a slight citrus fragrance, the textures were light but really moisturising. Now as a makeup artist, the last thing I want when working on someone is excess moisture so this might be worth checking out when it becomes available to buy in June 2011. Personally I think that anyone with slightly greasy skins will appreciate this range and not just the younger consumer.
There's more to come tomorrow when I head off to see more new collections from other brands so stay tuned!
