New from MAC is the MAC, Naturally collection for winter 2011.

This collection is comprised of 21 pieces ranging from Mineralize Skinfinishes, Blushes and Eye Shadows to Eye Pencils, Lipsticks and Lipglasses.

The idea behind this collection is a naturally “undone” look. In other words, no bright or crazy colors. They are all shades in the nude, brown, peach, pink families. Very earthy and easy to wear.

No7 and Poppy King Limited Edition Lipstick in History Swatches & Review

No7 and Poppy King History

Boots and Poppy King have joined forces to create a collection of seven limited edition lipsticks and matching lip glosses under the No7 brand name.

I have never used anything from Poppy King, but I definitely know the name. She loves old-Hollywood style and has been creating cosmetics for 20 years now. She has some amazing looking red lipsticks out there!

These lipsticks are not totally opaque, but rather build-able and somewhat shiny. This makes them much easier to wear for those people who are intimidated by bold colors. If you just use one layer you get a nice sheer wash, then for more color, add more layers.

The colors in the collection include:

  • History – deep red
  • Power – rose red
  • Glamour – flirty pink
  • Seduction – deep berry
  • Intrigue – pink nude
  • Confidence – classic nude
  • Allure – peach

The lipstick tubes are a really nice silvery lavender and come in a metal case. They look small, but are actually full-sized lipsticks inside.

NYX Bronzer  Blusher  Highlight  Contour

A couple new NYX products out this winter are the Bronzer & Blusher Combo and Highlight & Contour Powder.

The Bronzer/Blusher Combos come in 5 different shades (Bali, Ibiza, Marbella, Phi Phi Island and Bora Bora) and the Highlight/Contour comes in one shade.

Both come in a really nice white compact with black detailing and a mirror inside. I have to say I love these compacts, I think they look really cool.
