Hey!  It’s May allyuh!!!  I can’t believe it!  My favourite season is fast approaching, so I start looking forward to wearing very bronzy colours on the eyes and coraly ones on the cheeks.

A few months ago, I decided that I was going to try something from Mally Roncal’s line, mally.  If you don’ t know, Mally is a celebrity makeup artist, who has worked on some of the top names in the entertainment industry, such as Ms. Jay-Z aka Beyonce.  And I always check out what she has to offer when she appears on QVC, ‘cuz I secretly love her style!  So I headed over to Henri Bendel in NYC and picked up this little beauty:

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics is bringing a Garden of colour this Spring!

[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’]


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)

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).
