Clinique's Air-Kissed Colours.

This collection from Clinique is truly what Summer is all about. Fresh. Floral. Light. Pink. This is the Air-Kissed Colour Collection.

The stand out of this collection is the brand new, limited edition Colour Surge Eye Shadow Trio. In Kiss of Pinks, eyes are awash in soft radiance and glow in the prettiest of pink shades. 


Also in the collection is the gorgeous Fresh Bloom Allover Colour this one in Peony, and two new Long Last Glosswear Lip Gloss in Whisper and Air Kiss (need to pick this one up- stat).

Clinique provided some great tips on how to wear this soft Air-Kissed look. Start with a  dusting of Fresh Bloom Allover Colour in Peony on apples of cheeks, forehead and temples for sun-kissed shimmer. Using the Eye Shadow Trio for day, brush the lightest shade from the lashline to the brow, and define your lashline with darkest color. For night, add drama with the medium shade on lid, then deepen lashline and the crease with the darkest shade. And as a final touch for both day or night, use the NEW Lash Power Mascara Long Wearing Formula in Black Onyx. On lips, the sheer glimmer of NEW Long Last Glosswear SPF 15 in Air Kiss is the perfect daytime look. At night, turn up the intensity by lining and filling in lips with Quickliner for Lips in Baby Buff, then smoothe on the gloss over that for lasting shine.

Introducing Lancôme's Power Mascara: Ôscillation.

Have you heard? The power house mascara brand, yes, Lancôme, is launching a new mascara that will actually vibrate to ease in application. As crazy as this sounds, I bet it will be without a doubt, a real winner. Lancôme does know how to do mascara, so I cannot wait to see this new mascara and try it out on my very own lashes.


Ôscillation will be a very unique mascara that provides a 360-degree coat around each and every lash. The vibrating brush provides no fewer than 7,000 vibrations per minute (seriously?) for the perfect formula application. Ôscillation has four patents for technology and formula and was created by a team led by Jean-Louis Guéret, the designer of all Lancôme mascara brushes. Also known as "The King of Mascara", Guéret has been the father of nearly 400 mascaras during his illustrious career. Wow!

As most of you know, Lancôme is the number one luxury mascara brand in the world, so they are very excited and thrilled to bring this latest innovation to market.

As soon as I get my hands on this, I will be reporting, and hopefully be able to demonstrate with video, as it seems like this one will have to be seen to be believed.
