Hey!

So Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, is releasing their Spring/Summer 2012 collection on March 23rd.   Closely following the hot trends of bold, saturated colours and colour-blocking, OCC presents The Garden.

From OCC:

Spring has sprung at OCC and hidden among the lilacs and pansies is a different shade of floral. Inspired by psychotropic and poisonous plants, this collection turns traditional spring pastels upside down, injecting them with hallucinatory notes of nearly-neon vibrancy.  Mixed in are more subtle neutral lip shades, meant to be paired with a dizzying flash of color on the eyes, in this garden of earthly (and unearthly) delights.

The Garden Collection:

Lip Tar – a mix of brights and neutrals (as seen in the image from L to R)

Hey!

Here is a bright look for the summer!  I used one of the most popular colours for the season, coral, but made it wearable for everyone with a light application.  Of course, you can intensify the look by adding a bright liner on the lower lashline, like green, gold or turquoise.

Bright, summer look!

M.A.C. Surf Baby Haul and swatches!

Here’s my mini haul! As per usual, M.A.C. brings out a summer collection that I love.  Large collection, with many components, so there is something for everyone.  Very bronze and very bright.

Anyway, did not get much, just some must-haves for me!  Still thinking about some the lipsticks and the stick bronzers (although they remind me of the NARS multiples).
