Chanel Rouge Allure Ink Matte Liquid Lip Colour: review, photos, swatches

Liquid matte lipsticks have been insanely popular for more than a year now, but I never jumped on the bandwagon. In fact I have to admit that I haven't bought a single one since the trend started picking up steam. I know, bad beauty blogger, booh! I have a good reason though: my lips are about as dry as the surface of the moon, they crack and get flaky super easily all year round, so I have to avoid any drying lip formula. And unfortunately most liquid matte lippies are drying, some of them terribly so. However, I figured that if one brand was able to create a non-drying and comfortable liquid matte, that would be Chanel, so I decided to try their brand new Rouge Allure Ink. In fact I grabbed one online as soon as they were released! Was it everything I always hoped for, or did it make my dry lips cry for balm? Let's find out!

Guerlain Holiday 2016 collection now available!

Get excited beauty enthusiasts, Guerlain's Holiday 2016 collection has hit the shelves! The French brand typically makes the most beautiful Holiday collection of all - remember last year's awe-inspiring Neiges et Merveilles?

This year's collection has an interesting twist: it is inspired by Guerlain's own legendary Shalimar fragrance, first created in 1921. From the famous fan-shaped bottle, the collection has taken the blue color of the cap and the golden hue of the fragrance itself. Natalia Vodianova, the face of Guerlain makeup and of Shalimar fragrance for years, worked with the brand's creative director Olivier Echaudemaison to create this limited edition collection.

Yves Saint Laurent Couture Eyeshadow Palette in Danger Seduction for Fall 2016: review, photos, swatches

I've been resisting the arrival of fall as long as I could, claiming that we still had many long days of summer left, but I have to surrender: the season officially starts next week. Autumn is upon us, it's time to start playing with darker colors on the eyes and lips! For the eyes, YSL got us covered with their Couture Palette in Danger Seduction, a limited edition for fall that's exclusive to Neiman Marcus (who oddly calls it Dangerous Seduction. I'll go with what the palette itself says!). This is not the main eyeshadow palette that was released with YSL's fall makeup collection called Scandal - you can see that one here.
