This month Cover Girl launches the new look and updated colour palette of Outlast All-Day Lipcolour. Pat McGrath, world renowned make-up artist and Global Creative Design Director for P&G Beauty, assisted in the design of the latest 23 shades – taking her inspiration from fashion textiles art and theatre. She also helped to organize the full palette into six shade families: Pinks & Roses, Mauves & Berries, Corals & Reds,Naturals & Nudes, Browns & Spices and Burgundies & Wines.
Newly infused with botanicals, each lipcolour offers an improved, higher chroma shade range for brighter, more noticeable lips. What I really like is that my colour lasts for up to 16 hours without leaving my lips dry and flakey. The improved top coat keeps my lips soft with shea and cocoa butters and Vitamin E – it evens tastes like vanilla – yum!

Discover Clinique’s latest collection - Nude Blush. Spring’s prettiest, fresh-faced look is all about softly muted shades on eyes, cheeks and lips. And a focus on gorgeous, glowing skin.
I am a very lucky gal and was able to sample these products over the Holidays. I was in Florida so the usually seasonal collections were too heavy for the gorgeous hot weather. These shades and textures were just what I needed to stay pretty and light throughout the summer-esq days.
Colour Surge Eye Shadow Duo Stay Matte
Creamy, natural looking matte shadow that provide intense colour. These shadows are Ophthalmologist tested, so even the most sensitive eyes can wear them.
I have been enjoying the splash duo which I can either apply softly for daytime or layer on for a evening event.
Cream Shaper for Eyes (Limited Edition Duo)
Creamy-smooth limited-edition dual-end pencil defines with a hint of shimmer. Non-smudging, water-resistant. Ophthalmologist tested.
I wear Chocolate Lustre on the top lashes and Cocoa Simmer on the bottom and on the rim. The colours make my blue eyes pop.
Colours: Brown Sugar/Chocolate Lustre, Chocolate Lustre/Cocoa Simmer, Mink/Sable, Egyptian/Brightening Gold (shown)
Lash Power Mascara in Black Onyx
Look pretty for 24 hours without a smudge or smear. Lashes are strengthened and lengthened with a special precisiion brush that coats each individual lash evenly, lushly. To remove just splash warm water on lashes several times and press gently. Or, wet a cotton pad with warm water, press to eye, then wipe away.
I found that Lash Power was able to get to every single little lash and make them look full. Even when the weather was sweltering hot, my mascara stayed in place.
Colour Surge Butter Shine Lipstick (Limited Edition)
A revolutionary gel formula that delivers the shine of a gloss with the comfort of a lipstick. Lips are drenched in moist, lush colour that glides on buttery-smooth and feels luxurious.
I am addicted to Fresh Rose. Very pretty.
Colours: Deep Bloom (shown), Fresh Rose, Nude Blush and Spring Rose.
Blended Face Powder and Brush in Invisible Blend
Loose, lightweight powder that’s right for every type of skin.
I have been using this on it’s own to take away any trace of shine and it provides me with a flawless, natural look.
Blushing Blush Powder Blush Trio (Limited Edition)
A fresh, jet-milled trio of colour that is applied with a custom-sculpting brush to provide the most natural and long-wearing look.
Colours: Bare Nudes, Bare Pinks
