Time really flies! Let’s say goodbye to Winter and welcome Spring! Truly, Spring is my most favorite season of the year though I don’t get to enjoy the 4 seasons in Singapore. I extremely adore all the pastel, bright and lively colors during the Spring season.
In this Spring 2012, for the first time MAKE UP FOR EVER takes a Bohemian approach and launches its Spring 2012 La Boh©me Collection that includes the Limited Edition La Boh©me Eyeshadow Palette, a new shade La Boh©me Aqua Eye Pencil and 2 new shades of Limited Edition La Boh©me Natural Lipstick.
I was extremely delighted upon receiving a set of the new limited edition Spring 2012 La Boh©me Collection plus a Long Wear Eyelid Primer. I must say I actually love this collection very much! I actually fell in love with the eyeshadow palette at first sight!
MAKE UP FOR EVER Spring 2012 La Boh©me Collection
Inspired by the 70′s Bohemian style, Spring 2012 La Boh©me Collection is perfect for those with a carefree and bold attitude. This limited edition collection is designed in floral motifs, embroidery, prints and patchwork.
Limited Edition La Boh©me Eyeshadow Palette, retailing at S$59, comes with 6 new limited edition shades in the favorite Spring pastel tones. Designed by Dany Sanz, in a completely homemade creation made of recyclable cardboard with bold patchwork of Bohemian-inspired 70′s floral motifs.
This paraben-free formulated La Boh©me Palette contains 6 eyeshadow shades with pearly or sparkle finishes for easy mix and match combination : Parma Violet (sparkle finish), Natural Green (pearly finish), Beige (pearly), Brown (sparkle), Lagoon Green (sparkle) and Coral (sparkle).
The fine texture comes with 50% pearly particles and glide on with fingertips or a brush for 2 different results : applied dry for a sheer luminous and natural effect or wet for an intense look, filled with pearly particles.
As I prefer something natural, I hence applied the eyeshadow (Parma Violet on the inner corner, Beige in the middle and Lagoon Green on the outer corner) dry with a brush. I also outlined the upper eyelids (along the lash line) with the new Aqua Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner and applied the brown eyeshadow on the outer corner (upper and lower eyelids) along the lash line. I actually like this combination. The eyeshadow texture is pretty fine and it glides on easily and is perfectly crease-resistant.
You can actually apply the eyeshadow wet for a more intense look.
In this season Aqua Eye Pencil, MAKE UP FOR EVER bestseller, has introduced a new wood-inspired matte black-brown shade – Gypsy. This new La Boh©me Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil, retailing at S$33, is designed with a floral cap that compliments the La Boh©me collection.
I actually like the shade of this eyeliner pencil which is less harsh as compare to solid black. This easy-to-use eyeliner pencil feels soft on my skin and it helps to accentuate my eyes for a complete makeup look. Do refer to the close-up image above for the effect.
Rouge Artist Natural Lipstick, retailing at S$35, makes a comeback with 2 new limited edition shades, Folk (Red Coral) and Boh©me (Peach Beige, shown above).
This limited edition La Boh©me Natural Lipstick is designed with imprint of leaves hides inside the tube and the MAKE UP FOR EVER logo reveals its many facets on the cap. It is formulated with a new melt-away formula that provides an instant sheer result with a tinge of shimmer.
My lip instantly feels soft and hydrate upon application with this ultra-creamy super-conditioning lipstick.
MAKE UP FOR EVER Eye Prime, a Long Wear Eyelid Primer retailing at S$35, acts as a base that helps enhance the color of eyeshadow and helps it last longer.
This long-lasting Eye Primer has a super fine, translucent beige creamy texture that glides on the skin easily. It instantly turns transparent when I spread it evenly on the eyelid. It gives a matte finish without feeling greasy at all. It effectively helps enhance the color of the eyeshadow and thanks to the ultra fine texture that I don’t feel like I’m wearing anything at all.
Here’s my complete super natural look with La Boh©me Collection.
Spring 2012 La Boh©me Collection is now available at Sephora ION Orchard, Sephora Ngee Ann City, Sephora Marina Bay Sands, Sephora Great World City, Sephora VivoCity and Make Up For Ever boutique at OUB Centre #04-16 on 2 February 2012 onwards.
