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.

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.

Review : Rimmel Provocalips 16 Hour Kiss Proof Lip Colors

 

rheader

Hi Beauties,

as the weather is on change and spring is here so wanted to add some springy colors to my lip collection and Rimmel came up with these Rimmel Provocalips 16 Hour Kiss Proof Lip Colours an exclusive two-step lip colour for a kiss-proof, trouble proof pout. which says,

Step one: slick on WOW colour. Step two: lock it in with INCREDIBLE shine and moisture.

Provocalips delivers hi-impact endless colour with a delectably glossy finish. The intense colour is locked in place for up to 16 hours.

It’s kiss-proof, food-proof and transfer-proof, only coming off when you want it to so you can go WILD without a trace.

This vibrant stay-put colour feels as good as it looks. The ultra-comfortable formula is so lightweight and flexible that it adapts to the movement of your lips.

There’s no tightness or dryness. Instead, lips feel sensationally smooth and moisturized all day long. What’s not to love?

Provocative lips are as easy as 1, 2… there’s no 3!  First, apply the wow-worthy colour to bare lips and allow to dry. Second, apply the gloss-like top coat to lock in colour, moisture and shine.

This clear gloss top coat can be reapplied throughout the day for an added burst of lustre and moisture. And when you want to take-off the lip colour, simply use an oil-based make-up remover.

I got two shades to try 730 Make your move (a beautiful peachy brown color)  & 11o Dare to pink ( a nude pink color) Comes in a double ended applicator,  the first is the liquid colour which is applied with a doe foot applicator and the second is a gloss which locks in the colour and add glossy shine, this is also applied with a doe foot applicator.

 

rimmelcollageLeft without gloss 730 Make your move &11o Dare to pink  : Right with gloss  730 Make your move &11o Dare to pink

 

Both are gorgeous for everyday, very opaque together, comfortable on lips no stickiness with the gloss, looks beautiful,  lasts for 6 hours flawlessly…Can be taken off with any oil based makeup remover or  olive oil..ideal long wearing lipcolor will be trying in some more shades which I am already eyeing on specially 310 Little Minx, 500 Kiss Me You Fool

Only downside is than bit fades on the inner side of the mouth which is common with these liquid lipsticks. For touch up their is a trick which after trying out many the liquid lipsticks I learnt which is don’t reapply all over as it becomes chunky and not comfortable, just touch up the inner rim if you have to where it fades. rimmellipcollage

Review : Note Cosmetics ULTRA RICH COLOR EYE PENCIL in Deep Forest

Hi Beauties,

Spring is here so a pop of color to make the eyes look fresh & bright….I love colored liners cant resist them. Had been trying the Note Cosmetics ULTRA RICH COLOR EYE PENCIL in Deep Forest an elegant bottle green shade.pencil-close

Its creamy, blends very well and glides like butter under or over the eyes…didn’t use inside the eyes as I have watery eyes so I’m quite sure this will not stay… As its creamy so set it with a loose powder or eye shadow of the same color to make it last for long hours.

Overall very pretty color has a gorgeous sheen which is just a steal for its price…highly recommended!

Its available in 10 shades ….Price tag just 1.500 Kd

Review: Note Cosmetics Long Wearing Lipstick Blue Raspberry 18 & Rich Color Lipstick Merlot 21

lipsticks

Hi beauties,

I am back with another review on lipsticks…whose excited???? yes I know you all are =)

Ok let me tell you a bit about this brand which is Note Cosmetics, a Turkish brand, very good looking packaging, good quality, quality ingredients and very very affordable.The retailers here were very generous to send these to try , you can check more about the makeup range Here

Had been using the Long Wearing Lipstick Blue Raspberry 18 & Rich Color Lipstick Merlot 21

These lipsticks are just amazing and look so so good without breaking your bank…..very inexpensive price but I bet it can look like very expensive branded lipstick. I had been so impressed with the quality and scrumptious colors, these shades had been just perfect for the cold days.

blue-raspberryNote Cosmetics Long Wearing Lipstick Blue Raspberry 18  a  gorgeous deep color, very opaque can say super pigmented. Moisturizing and very comfortable on lips ..smells like vanilla ice cream which fades away. Stays on for 3 to 4 hours.. fades as you have drinks or snacks but I think its ok for a lipstick…even when it fades leaves a pretty tint behind. This shade reminds me of Mac Diva..dupe alert girls 😉

merlot

Note Cosmetics Rich Color Lipstick in Merlot 21 a pretty red shade , very opaque a swipe or two is enough to cover the whole lips ,hydrating & moisturizing … on lips it feels matte but doesn’t set flat matte instead has a nice sheen & smells like vanilla. This also stays on for 3 to 4 hours without eating.Besides being moisturising they didn’t bleed out …. like its finish on the lips.

lipstick-swatchBoth were dark shades from there lipstick range but would definitely try more from the nudes too.If you want build a collection of lipsticks or just want to try a new shade I would recommend you must try this! The Price tag is just 2.500 KD

Available at Kuwait city , Mubarkiya, Souq Zal , shop no. 35 and also at Jahra, Alamiya Mall.

Review : Make Up For Ever Mascaras & Make Up For Ever SENS’EYES

mfcollage

Hi beauties,

Had been using the Makeup forever mascaras which I got back so thought this will be the right time to give my opinion about them …. No doubt the mascaras are good quality, very black formula, non clumpy formula and have divergent brushes. What I liked most these are very easily removed.. no hassle any good makeup remover will work with them, I had been using the Makeup Forever Sens’Eyes  which is just amazing no irritation or loosing lashes very delicate on eyes but does it job well!

extra  Makeup Forever Smoky Extravagant mascara has a conical shape & natural fiber bristles..the shape makes the mascara reach the lashes easily, though I found this a bit difficult on lower lashes than figured out a way how not to smudge all  the mascara on my under eye lolz…… So just wiping the extra mascara from the tip and used the tip of the brush on the lower lashes rather than the whole brush… the brush went through the lashes and coated them evenly without smudging on my lower eye, this made it lot easier as the front bristles are short. Overall a good mascara gives length noticed it has fibers which helped in lengthening and volume specially to the root area making them look thick.

smoky-lashMakeup Forever aqua smoky lash Mascara has a densely packed bristle very easy to work with brush. Though it gives good length and volume to the lashes but it flakes a bit after  some hours……maybe its me but it flaked which I hate in my mascara!

smoky-stretch-mascara

Makeup Forever Smoky Stretch Mascara this is my favorite among these as it has thin long conical shaped brush which makes the mascara reach the lashes easily. Holds the curl well, has fiber formula so gives a false lash effect which means it lengthens, thickens and adds full volume to lashes…love it ❤

Didn’t try the lashes yet but will be perfect for any dress up party 😉 will update.

Hope you find this helpful….have you tried any of these?
