Paul and Joe Nail Treatment Oil Jill Stuart Treatment Nail Essence Summer 2013 2014 Handcare Nailcare 1

Back in 2008, I posted about the cute nail and cuticle oils I had. As I said, they are not absolute necessities for me and I don’t use them on a daily basis. However, I did get two more in the last couple of years. (Yes, I still like the cute-looking ones……)

– I had a look at SHISEIDO’s Face Color Enhancing Trios for fall 2014 (£32 each). I was interested in PK1 (Lychee) (particularly the pink blusher), but the blusher shade turned out to be very pale.

For me, the highlights of Chicca’s summer 2014 Summer Horizon makeup collection are the lip items. The two new shades of Mesmeric Gloss On look eye-catching (the golden 04 Monochrome Gold and the pink 05 Moon Pink with sparse blue-toned shimmer). Among the three new shades of Mesmeric Lipstick, I like 08 Rose Glacé (the top one in the image), which is a red pink with a subtle rose undertone. It is an understated and elegant color.
