Shahnaz Loves Beauty

Summer is almost upon us in Cape Town and I am very happy I no longer live in cold London (even though I miss my mates and the shopping). Its the season for bright lips and to embrace the key trends. I have gotten my hands on some amazing lipsticks from some amazing brands but have also been impressed by the more budget brands. For me there is nothing prettier or on trend then a flawless fresh face with a bright lip and just lots of mascara on the lashes.  I have included the new Chanel SS Collection out 27th Jan and the Micheal Kors lipstick will be out mid December.

So here are my picks:

Rimmel Apocolips in no 303 Apocoliptic: This is a great budget lipstick and was winner in the UK magazine Company beauty awards. The applicator makes this lipstick easy to apply it glides on beautifully and is highly pigmented plus it feels really hydrating on the lips.

Obsessive Compulsive Lip Tar in Anine: I love this product especially when I am on a shoot. This is a great bright lip colour for this summer trends. Only a little product is needed and make sure to line the lips first to prevent bleeding of the product and pop on some lip balm to keep your lips hydrated before adding any of the lip tar.

Mac Lipstick in Lady Danger: One of the icon lipsticks at Mac I am a big fan of this shade. Its on the more orange side of red so if red is too bold a colour then this is a great shade to rock the Summer bright lip trend. Its a creamy texture with no shimmer and is a great shade for the paler complexions. Love it

Estee Lauder Pure Colour Melting Sun Laquer no 6: If you are frightened to go for a lip that is too bold and too bright this is a great option to still rock the bright lip trend. Its a gloss so it has a pretty finish and is a beautiful orange shade so perfect with a bronzed contoured face and lots of mascara.

Micheal Kors Sexy Bomshell Laquer: This lipstick will be launched mid December I got my hands on this lipstick and I absoloutely love the colour. Firstly it smells amazing it has a citrus smell so big plus and it glides on so smoothly. Give it a couple of coats to get the full colour and when its on your lips it feels so moisturising plus I really love the packaging.

Rouge Allure Velvet Chanel La Diva in no 44: LOVE LOVE this colour. This lipstick is from the new SS collection launching in SA on 27th Jan. I went to the launch last week and got my hands on this beautiful lipstick as well as the lip pencil. Its a bright matt lip but doesn’t dry the lips out. I love this colour with a fresh clean face and lots of highlighting on the face.

Tom Ford Lipstick in no 15 Wild Ginger: I absoloutely love this lipstick and the packaging. Yes it is expensive but its Tom Ford. I was sent this lipstick as a congratulations so am one lucky lady. The texture is beautiful and so luxurious and its a beautiful shade of orange. Fill your brows to complete the look with some contouring and a liquid foundation to give that beautiful dewy finish.

Hope you enjoyed my post. x
