Maybelline’s 2012 Calendar

As you all might already know, renowned make-up brand Maybelline released their Calendar with 12 amazing and colorful editorial make-ups for next year. Lots of fake eyelashes, glitter and crazy make-ups; of course I had to post.

What caught my attention among that sea of color were the lipsticks; some bold and quite bright colors that will take some courage to actually wear, but are awesome nonetheless.

I think this will fire more than one idea in any make-up lover’s brain. There are a couple than can be copy for a night out or such, and the others are mostly inspirational ideas, but in all they are very good and I dare say futuristic in a way, with a bit of Pop to them.

Quite a good way to start the next year, don’t you think?

Coastal Scents Goodies

This was my birthday ‘self-present’, I got it from Amazon like 2 weeks ago, but I wanted to give them a try before I wrote something about them. So far, so good.

The Contour Blush Palette works pretty good. I still have to learn how to propperly contour, but I’m working on it. The blushes are very nice, the only thing is that depending on your skin tone you might want to apply a little bit more of it. I have a medium complexion and contrary to my experience with MAC blushes (well duh!) I need a little bit more of the CS one.

Now the Lip Quads, I must confess I got those because I ‘noticed’ I had only like 2 lipsticks, and 4 lipglosses, and I went all ‘OMG how is this possible!’ on myself. So, I decided I would give them a try also, being so super cheap I was a bit nervous BUT, they are actually very nice. The colors are great and you can get pretty much the color you see on the palette, which made me insanely happy (I hate how some lipsticks look all bright and beautiful and once you apply them you can barely see the real color). If you have dry lips it can crack a little bit so, my advice would be to use a lip moisturizer before applying the color.

I think it was a very good present 😉
