“I See Blue” for #NYFW……

[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’]

Yes, ah seein’ blue!!!  Maybelline is the official makeup sponsor for Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week and they have brought out a limited edition coloured mascara collection.  All vibrants!! The deep blue one, caught my eye!!! They also have purple, green, teal and other colours but……the shade “I See Blue” was it!!

Maybelline Limited Edition “I See Blue” mascara

Again, don’t like the wand for the original but the pigmentation is wonderful! I love a coloured mascara to have a little fun with makeup and change up the look, but since I’m not wearing green lashes everyday, I don’t want to spend $30 for a high-end mascara.

The wand

I grabbed this up, as it seems to be the most popular of the colours.  They are available at drugstores, but when they are done, that’s it!  Check out my swatches below.

Note: These products were purchased by me.

Just like music that’s African-influenced is in constant play on my iPod, especially during hotter weather, these new, limited-edition pencils are giving me life!

Recently released as part of the Temperature Rising Colour Summer 2013 collection,  this is one product  that I wish MAC made perm.   These are like the mostly discontinued Shadesticks, but they have a much smoother, creamier texture that is water-resistant (not waterproof).  These actually remind me of a cross between the Shadesticks and the MAC Paints.

They come in 4 shades, but I picked up 2 of them.

Battle of the Retro Mattes! M.A.C.’s Ruby Woo vs. RiRi Woo

[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’]

So……I’m not a fan of Rihanna…at all, BUT when I heard that she agreed to a multi collection deal with M.A.C. that started with the creation of a customized shade of lipstick in the Retro Matte finish, ah went bazodee!

The Retro Matte finish is the SINGLE BEST FINISH FOR A LIPSTICK EVA!  Ruby Woo is my favourite lipstick and is my go-to with a high bun. So this shade is supposed to be what Rihanna wears on tour, a blue-based red, that’s universal on all skintones.  Last week, M.A.C. released it online and it sold out in 3 hours…..yup, I was one of those waiting on that virtual line! There is no special packaging  (I thought at least the box would have something on it), but engraved on the lipstick, was RiRi’s signature.

So I am kinda excited for the new James Bond movie coming out soon featuring Daniel Craig.  And Ms. Adele is singing the title song!

So OPI is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Bond franchise with a limited edition holiday collection coming out in October called the Skyfall collection.

From PR,

This holiday season, OPI celebrates the 50th Anniversary of a fellow world icon – James Bond – appearing in Skyfall. Starring Daniel Craig and Javier Bardem, this highly-anticipated twenty-third installment opens in theaters nationwide on November 9, 2012. 

Inspired by the film’s blend of glamour and danger, OPI launches Skyfall Collection, featuring twelve limited-edition nail lacquers for Holiday 2012. “OPI is thrilled to work with EON Productions to celebrate 50 years of the style, swagger and mystique associated with Bond 007,” said Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director.  “From metallic and glitter finishes to jewel tones and even a jet black, these lacquers capture the film’s sophisticated and glamorous look.

“Watch for Bérénice Marlohe wearing two Skyfall Collection shades in the film,” adds Weiss-Fischmann. “With Skyfall, a rich maroon, painted on top of the nail and GoldenEye, a shimmering gold, painted on the undersides, Marlohe’s luxurious manicure will be the one to try this holiday season.”

There are 12 colours in this collection and there is mix of textures and colours very popular at this time and for the upcoming holiday/fete Noel season!

The collection:

GoldenEye – All eyes will be upon you when you wear this glorious gold.

The Spy Who Loved Me – A red as romantic as the secret agent inside you.
