Make Up For Ever Spring 2012 La Boheme Collection

MAKE UP FOR EVER takes a Bohemian approach to life. An eyeshadow palette,  two original Rouge Artist shades and an eye pencil in a limited edition. A collection inspired by nature, to let your beauty desires blossom and give new form to the Bohemian spirit. And I was really excited and happy when I received this gorgeous and colourful collection from the Spring 2012 La Boheme Collection

For the first time, MAKE UP FOR EVER presents it’s eyeshadows in a new shape. six new limited-edition shades in extremely pearly springtime pastel tones. The baked powder technology ensures fine, intense color particles for eyeshadows with 50% pearly particles and a paraben free formula. The result: incredibly fresh and luminous makeup and intense, Bohemian chic eyes. The eyeshadows of the palette glide on with fingertips or a brush for two different results: applied dry for a sheer, luminous and natural effect or wet for an intense look, filled with pearly particles. La Bohème Palette contains six eyeshadow shades with pearly or sparkle finishes.

The star of the collection is this unique limited-edition palette dressed in an entirely homemade creation made of recyclable cardboard. A bold patchwork of Provençal or floral motifs, with arabesques and refined details. Historical pieces that Dany Sanz brought back from her travels and cleverly selected and coordinated. As if topstitched, the logo looks handmade. Inside this case, which opens with a silky  ribbon, an iconic flower of the collection stands out against the black background.

To mix and match for endless combinations: shades from top left (in clockwise) are: 
Natural Green (pearly finish),Lagoon Green (sparkle) Beige (pearly),
Parma Violet (sparkle finish), Brown (sparkle), Coral (sparkle).

La Boheme Rouge Artist Natural (Boheme) 

The legendary Rouge Artist makes a comeback in a new melt-away formula with a delicious sheer result  In 2 new Limited Edition shades.- Boheme and Folk. Sparkling with iridescent particles, they naturally embellish the lips with a romantic shimmer. As for the design, Rouge Artist gets customized like a Bohemian accessory: the imprint of leaves hides inside the tube and the MAKE UP FOR EVER logo reveals its many facets on the cap. Boheme appears as a lovely peach beige shade on my lips, I would say Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist in Boheme is a my lips but better lipstick shade. The creamy formula makes application a breeze and does not have any waxy feel. Somehow I find it makes my lips look moisturised without any flaky effect! (",)

 La Boheme Aqua Eyes Eyeliner in Gypsy

I have read many raves on Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes Eyeliner and I was delighted that I was given this product to try out.  Now it comes in a new wood-inspired shade: a gorgeous matte black-brown ~ Gypsy Topped with a floral cap in the spirit of the La Bohème collection, it’s the ideal accessory to accentuate the eyes and complete the folk look. Aqua Eyes Eyeliner is one of Make Up For Ever's Best Seller product and it really lives up to its hype! It glides smoothly on my skin, the color is pigmented and and it is very lasting without any smudging. Gypsy is really a nice shade of black brown that add definition to my eyes naturally.

I was also given a tube of Make Up For Ever Eye Prime Long Wear Eyelid Primer along with the La Boheme Collection. Enriched with waxes and mineral powders, Eye Primer creates a protective base on the eyelid allowing eye makeup to last longer without creasing or fading.

The wand comes in a doe-foot applicator for easy application. It has an ultra light and creamy texture which blends seamlessly into the skin, creating a matte and smooth canvas before applying eye shadows. The light beige tone is a natural skin color which is ideal for every skin tone. See how it disappeared onto my skin after blending out. Can be applied alone to brighten up and even out skin tone at the eyelid areas, or add your favorite eye shadows on top of it. I am using this product almost everyday in the past 1 month and I am loving it because it really makes my eye makeup last much longer and make the colors look more vibrant. 

Do check out this lovely collection next time you pass by any Sephora outlets or you can drop by at Make Up For Ever Boutique at OUB Centre if you are working around that area. Did I mention that the La Boheme Eye Palette and Rouge Artist in Boheme and Folk are Limited Edition! Do check them out before they are sold out.
