Event : Marks & Spencer introduces Spring’15 Collection

A few weeks ago got a chance to attend Mark & Spencer Spring’15 Collection showcasing event where they were celebrating the first glorious days of the spring season, Marks & Spencer previewed it’s vibrant and flattering Spring 2015 collection at an in-store fashion event attended by the region’s stylish including blooming bloggers at The View, Salmiya. The new womenswear and menswear collection presented at the event reinterprets the international runway trends into stylish wearable ensembles for both work and play, available in impeccable quality at great prices.

It Says ,”Luxurious in its simplicity, the womenswear collection is a celebration of the sleek and elegant. Contemporary shapes, effortless styling and clean lines are punctuated by desirable prints like oriental florals, abstract graphics, flirty polka-dots and nautical stripes. Colour is given a seasonal overhaul as the redefined neutrals- warm tans, textured blues and a spectrum of pinks creates the tone of the landscape.”

Below are the trends that define the mood of this edited flattering collection:

70’S SUMMER OF LOVE:  Hippy style goes haute this season with free-spirited prints and relaxed tailoring for a light-touch take on 1970s style. Relaxed vibe is evident with crochet details, floral prints and wide-legged jeans, simply embodying the spirit of the era.

MODERN ROMANCE: A romantic narrative veers from the dramatic to the flirtatious; as heavy lace meets peek-a-boo sheers, in a vivid feminine collision. Pastel pinks, white and red are featured in its standout pieces including the elegant fashion-forward pink limited edition skirt.

INTO THE BLUE:  Denim emerges as a trend in its own right, creating a new depth to the casual and updating the tailored.  Look out for fresh ideas, from cool jumpsuits to denim dresses – it’s time to embrace the blues.

 

ORIENT: An eastern sensibility informs this modern silhouette, as ornamental prints and sculptured separates are elegantly constructed for an exotic appeal.

 

STRIPES: The classic print gets a cheery makeover in refreshingly vibrant hues.  There’s nothing uniform about them either, as the modern effect is created with variable depth and width.

 

all

 

 

The menswear collection is a contemporary combination of formal and casual pieces styled together to create a relaxed, understated look for the season. Casualwear smartens up with modern interpretations on classic pieces, with the focus on clean lines, fine summer fabrics and masculine iconic styles, worn in a new tonal colour palette.

 

Key menswear items have been updated, with lighter summer weight deconstructed formal jackets and classic macs with design details such as an asymmetric fastening. Clean, simple t-shirts and light weight bombers are styled with coloured footwear to create this new look for the season. Blue is the key colour reference for spring’15 in both formalwear and casualwear, ranging from intense navy and midnight blues to paler denim and chambray tones. Denim jeans are available in improved fits, a full range of denim washes, new finishes and worn techniques, working with the most casual day looks as well as more formal outfits.This new season embrace the effortless sophistication and defining quality with Marks & Spencer.

Personally I loved the collection and the idea of fashion show( if you want to see the M&S fashion show clips check them on my Intagram account @Q8mangopeople) It was bright ,bold and very modern….clean cuts, every piece was impressive…I prefer the MS store at View is just so so vast & spacious, if you were be looking for any of the pieces do visit there.

The collection is now available in Marks & Spencer Kuwait stores at The View Salmiya, The Avenues Mall and 360 Mall.

Review : Urban Decay Naked on the Run Palette

header-notr

notr

Hi beauties,

New year, new start and some new beauty buys 😉 (secretly wishing that makeup keeps raining on me the whole year..guilty pleasures) …Yes to give this year a beautiful start, it would not be better than the Urban Decay Naked On the Run Palette I was so eyeing on it since it was launched  and waiting to be available here in Kuwait love love Urban Decay whatever it does ❤ …. you can read more about it  Here

 

Apart from the hillarious description for the palette (You never know when (or where) you’ll have the urge to get Naked) I don’t know who came up with this …lolz… the palette comes in a gorgeous rose gold packaging with a printed lid which reminds me of camouflage  (is it me only :P) which is a unique character by itself also….. The palette is the size of a hand… not so heavy but cant say also not very light though it has a large mirror. The palette contains six eye shadows(one large), a bronzer, a blush, a travel size mascara ,a full size lip gloss and  an eyepencil….what can I ask more, just complete… maybe an eyeshadow brush!!!

Very travel friendly as it has all that I can use to have polished day to night look…..perfect compilation I must say!!! Now I think this can help me in travelling a bit lighter on makeup,  as it has most of the essentials I need.

Just loving the pigmentation of the eye shadows velvety texture, well payoff of the color,amazing staying power (even without a primer) and amazing blendability.It has deep, light,  shimmery, glittery  and  perfect mattes…a eyeshadow for every mood.The duo of bronzer and blush are an icing on the cake!

UD Bronzer-matte warm bronzer… light but buildable .

UD Blush– a cool pink blush with satiny finish…its a very doll pink blush reminds me of Barbie 😉

UD  Sesso Lipgloss – a  peachy pink with a golden sheen lipgloss. Non sticky and very pretty …..gives a full pouty look to the lips.

Stag eyepencil- a dark brown color eye pencil. Easy gliding, pigmented & sets for hours.

UD Perversion Mascara- Fluffy bristles, very black …gives full looking lashes in few strokes.

From left to right eyeshadows,

Dive – a gorgeous rose gold color not sparkly but adds a sheen to the eyelids…. Super gorgeous!!!!

Fix – a matte medium brown eyeshadow

Resist–  a taupy eye shadow with a golden metallic sheen

Dare– a matte medium to dark warm brown eye shadow…best mattes.

Stun– a coffee brown eyshadow with golden undertones…glittery, chunky and sparkly eyeshadow…ahh sold on this so so gorgeous ❤

5050-a soft light satiny softly peachy more beige eye shadow which is larger than the usual eye shadows….I think it can also be used a highlighter.

Not going to bore you with swatches as  the internet is already flooded with these..very true as in the pallete, still  if you want you can check these swatches below from temptalia.com

Just yesterday did a look using this palette, mixed eye shadow Dive with 5050 on the middle of the lid, lightly contouring the sides of the eyes with Dare…so loved the combo. Used the 5050 on the inner corner of the eyes and  underlined the eyes with Stag, as the gloss is quite sheer so applied it over Maybelline intense pink 140 lipstick.

Overall , a perfect travel palette… so definitely a must have!

Available at Sephora at Avenues mall & Gate mall for 23 KD.

Review : Boots Foaming Cleanser & Boots Cleasing Water

Boots-No7

Hi beauties,

Had been using some Boots products from some months, I think now is the perfect time to give my opinion on it…so before I start I may tell you I had been using the Boots Foaming Cleanser & Boots Cleansing Water..this is not my first time I had been using any Boots Lift & Luminate day & night serums for a while too which I loved as they were very light on skin, non-cosmedogenic and hydrating.

Boots Foaming Cleanser

The foaming cleanser comes in a cool light green pump plastic bottle very travel friendly also….comes out in nice foam ver latering and suitable for my kind of mix skin…. best thing not drying and I used it after cleaning my makeup just takes all the residue of makeup away.Has a mild fresh scent…I think I will get more for myself as it has that all that a good cleanser needs!

Boots Cleansing Water

This comes in a transparent see through bottle, has a rotatable press pump which can be locked…again very travel friendly…I am loving this cleansing water as its  gentle & takes off makeup in few swipes.No oily residue  is left after taking off plus can be used on eyes too doesn’t sting.I don’t wear a waterproof  mascara, so don’t know about that but the regular one just comes off easily with this. After wiping off my makeup I feel my skin hydrated, clean & fresh.

I posted some skincare range on my Instagram too, have a look below

PhotoGrid_1415187511023

I would definitely will be trying more from the skincare range as its so good quality and not much expensive. If you are looking to try a gentle skincare hygiene than I will say must try these!
