Christmas is just around the corner, it’s five more weeks to Christmas! It’s the party season and time for you to glimmer and shine. Glam up your Christmas party look with Make Up For Ever latest limited edition Midnight Glow Holiday Collection 2013!
This festive new collection is inspired by the elegance and mystery of Venetian balls, where women would wear eye masks that are embellished with lace and sparkling stones, so they could carouse without being recognized. Ultra-sophisticated rhinestones, such as black and white diamonds and pearls are added to traditional eye make-up, creating a sense of mystery and sensuality.
Make Up For Ever latest limited edition Midnight Glow Holiday Collection 2013 consists of the Midnight Glow 8 Eye Shadow Palette, Aqua Rouge in Soft Pink, Glitter Powder and Rhinestones.
Recently, I was glad to receive the new limited edition Midnight Glow Eyeshadow Palette, the limited edition Aqua Rouge and the new Smoky Extravagant Mascara.
The star product, Midnight Glow 8 Eye Shadow palette (S$75), comes in cool new hues with a transparency crystal-clear, iridescent textures that contain mostly of mother-of-pearl particles. Gun Metal and Gold Pink are the two iconic shades of the look for this holiday collection.
The palette includes 2 small brushes made of synthetic fibers. One is designed for precise application of eye color on the eyelids, and the other is used to create a gradient or emphasize the crease.
The texture gives a transparent finish on the skin that blends seamlessly for radiant shine and diamond finish.
Above: As I prefer a subtle and natural look, hence I like applying the eyeshadow dry. 1) Icy Blue. 2) Gold Pink. 3) Midnight Purple.
Its transparent iridescence texture never adds too much color, which makes it very wearable for a special event or even in everyday life. It gives an ultra-lasting results thanks to the new formula that combines two specific elements : micronized pigments, together with spherical and lamellar powders.
For this holiday collection, Make Up For Ever adds a new limited edition color to its Aqua Rouge range. This iconic waterproof lipstick now comes in a new, natural Satin Pink tone paired with a transparent, pearlescent top coat. This limited edition Aqua Rouge (S$40), in soft pink tone, matches beautifully with the Midnight Glow eyeshadow palette.
Love its texture that makes it easy to apply. My lip feels moisture all day and it gives a long-wearing result.
Glitter and rhinestones are the details that really make this collection unique, and for the first time, the brand’s cult Gun Metal shade (left, at S$23) is available in glitter! This extremely elaborate formula was achieved by crushing a blend of mica particles in black, iridescent black, and various shades of grey for a mixed effect that matches the rhinestones (right, at S$29).
The light, delicate glitter adds a hint of sparkle to the face and the rhinestones create an equally sophisticated effect. This collection offers glimpses of a unique style of sensual, feminine and mystery that is highly desirable.
After Smoky Lash, Make Up For Ever adds a new mascara – Smoky Extravagant Mascara – that is created in a rich black hue for a dramatic impact. Retailing at S$44, Smoky Extravagant Mascara has a non-sticky consistency with no clumping thanks to an exclusive complex that combines a wetting agent and a blend of waxes (Beeswax, Candelilla, Carnauba).
The new Smoky Extravagant Mascara instantly lengthens my lashes in just 2 strokes. It gives a dramatic look instantly! Like the brush and the fluid consistency that make the application pretty easy. However, the mascara runs a little in the mid day.
Here’s a subtle and natural look using the Midnight Glow eyeshadow palette, the pink Aqua Rouge and the new Smoky Extravagant.
The limited edition Midnight Glow Holiday Collection 2013 and the Smoky Extravagant Mascara are now available at Sephora stores (Ngee Ann City, Bugis+, Great World City, ION Orchard, JEM, Marina Bay Sands, Plaza Singapura, Suntec and VivoCity) and Make Up For Ever Pro Loft at 36 Armenian Street #01-06.
