Go bold, go home: The Summer of Colour

{The Brights}

Rarely seen without a bold lipstick – how can I say ‘no’ when they look like candy? Bold shades are standing out and during the summer the all come out to play. These newest additions to the ever-growing collection of bolds are so good I want to eat them up…

{Dior Cheek Creme L-R: Pareo, Bikini, Panama, $30}

I mean, just look at them. How could I not squeal with delight at these pots of light, fluffy colour. Yes, they are a luxury version of the Bouncy Blush by Maybelline but if you want to spoil yourself and feel like a million bucks when you open this pot of decadent glass then go right ahead. The Dior Cheek Creme is heavily pigmented so be light-handed (or not in my case) when applying.

{Make Up Forever – Aqua Rouge}

Ya’ll know how crazy I am for these Make Up Forever, Aqua Rouge lipsticks. They really are smudge-proof, kiss-proof, anything proof.  I’ve never had a bold colour last so long with intensity and coverage. I loved this formula so much I had to buy both of the boldest colours they had. #16 a bright Fuchsia and #17 a bright electric orange.

{#17 by which the camera does it no justice}

{YSL La Laque Couture – Corail}

On my nails I’m loving YSL’s La Laque Couture Polish in Corail. It’s the glossiest most delectable of polish formulas out there — the finish is almost plastic like. For $27, though it’s definitely a splurge. One of my other favourites for the summer is Essie’s ‘The Girls are Out’ — with this purple/fuchsia hue, I don’t mind If I do…
