MAC Cosmetics x Giambattista Valli Lipstick Collection


I love sharing news of fab new MAC Cosmetics partnerships and product launches and I’m totes excited to give you the tea on the brand’s latest drool-worthy collaboration with the luxurious Italian fashion designer Giambattista Valli!

MAC is always pushing the envelope when it comes to really giving us something to look forward to with their fashion-forward product lines, and they are giving us all kinds of aesthetic goodness with five new matte shades.

I started working with MAC almost 10 years ago and since the beginning they understood and supported my vision as a designer. To celebrate this long standing relationship we thought it would be great to create a collection that was one-of-a-kind, more of a collector’s edition! I’m known for my dresses and with this collection you can dress your lips in Giambattista Valli.

Dior Tie Dye Collection for Summer 2015

This summer is going to be much more beautiful with Dior!

Yesterday, you can read the review of the Chanel summer collection, today it is time for those of Dior called ‘Tie Dye!’. The ‘Tie Dye’ concept was already seen in the fashion collections of Christian Dior, but it is now also translated to make up.


Think of beautiful summer colors that blend together, replace and transform. I am very happy, and I’m incredibly curious what you find about the collection! Today I review the backstage Pro palette, a turquoise Khol, a bright pink Fluid Stick and a whole summer in Sunwashed Salin.

5 Couleurs Couture Eyeshadow Palette  (Limited Edition)

  • Contraste Horizon
  • Ambre Nuit

DiorSkin Nude Tan  (Limited Edition)

  • Pink Sunrise (001)
  • Coral Sunset (002)

Dior Addict Lipstick  (Limited Edition)

  • Red Bliss (001)
  • Coral Trip (002)
  • Fuchsia Utopia (005)
  • Nude Fever (006)

Dior Addict Fluid Stick  (Limited Edition)

  • Tropiques (379)
  • Ciel Rose (449)
  • Plaisir (779)

Christian Dior has the Dior Addict Fluid Sticks in their range for a while, but I had not yet tried them myself (I’m sorry!), I was so very curious if this liquid lipsticks where more a gloss, or would tend more to a lipstick. I used the Plaisir (779), which is a flamboyant fuchsia color. A perfect color for the summer and matches nicely in combination with the neutral eye look which I have made earlier with the Eye Reviver palette. The pigmentation is incredibly good and certainly like a lipstick, while the shiny texture is similar to a lip gloss. A thin layer is really more than enough.

DiorShow Khol  (Limited Edition)

  • Pearly Turquoise

Most of you know that I am quite a fan of the eye shadow sticks/khols. It is the ideal product to apply your eye shadow in an easy way. You just need one layer, a little mascara, and you are ready to go! Pearly Turquoise is a deep blue color with a metallic finish. The structure is really perfect: not too creamy, but not too dry.

Vernis  (Limited Edition)

  • Sunkissed (239) This is a nude pink crème shade.
  • Sunwashed (319) This is a pastel yellow crème shade.
  • Sundown (464) This is a hibiscus red crème shade (my favorite!)

For summer, Christian Dior presents three stylish, candy hues that are completely wearable to create a refined yet stylish manicure. The Dior Tye Dye Summer 2015 collection also includes a new top coat (limited edition!) that can be worn over other lacquers to create a cool ombre nail art effect.

Top Coat  (Limited Edition)

  • Tie Dye

This is a top coat that transforms each colour into an ombre effect. Buy some extra bottles!! Great to see what you can do with one little bottle!! Try it on all your nailpolish!!

The whole collection is currently availble in the shop!

Chanel’s Riviera Summer

This year, for its beauty and make-up summer line, Chanel took inspiration from one of Gabrielle Chanel’s favorite destinations (and also one of mine’s): the French Riviera

One of the favorite destinations of Gabrielle Chanel, the Riviera of the Roaring Twenties is both a haven of peace and a new space for freedom. Facing the Mediterranean, the look is lost to the shores of Italy, and time stretches in the clear air. Under the blue sky of the French Riviera, skin is tanned, pace is relaxed. Between escapades in the sun and sea bathing, the happy days instills a new way of life, far from Paris and the Cambon Road, closer to nature.


Chanel Makeup Creation Studio extends the memory of hers stay with a vibrant collection, diving in the blue and sipping the light.

For the face, Chanel proposes the Exclusive Creation Lumiere D’Ete which reflects a pure and bronzed complexion. The illuminating powder provides hints of golden shimmer with a satin finish to ensure a natural look.

CHANEL_DP_ETE_2015_NM_3Chanel Stylo Eyeshadow Azulejo, Stylo Eyeshadow Campanule, Stylo Eyeshadow Caroube, Stylo Eyeshadow Laurier Rose, Stylo Eyeshadow Olivine

For the eyes, the French brand unveiled two products: The Stylo Eyeshadow– which is compact and packaged as a pen. The product is applied in one single sweep and is available in violet, turquoise blue, golden powder pink, satin olive green, and luminous warm brown. On the other hand, the Stylo Yeux Waterproof Orchidée is an intense violet liner which provides precision in application and long-lasting radiant color. Elegance and carefreeness are the essence of beauty according to Chanel. They inspired the season’s favorite accessory: for an expression Made in Riviera.

For the lips, the Rouge Coco Shine is vèry lightweight and rich in color. The palette includes golden pink, copper brown, vivid pin with soft gold, and a summer friendly, coral red. The Levres Scintillantes – also known as the iconic gloss by Chanel – dresses lips in bold colors including an intense pink and a very striking red

Finally, for the nails, Chanel provides colorful hues that are reminiscent of the riviera, including chocolate brown, deep ocean blue, vermilion red, and vivid violet.

With this vibrant collection, Chanel takes us back to the Riviera of the Roaring Twenties, Coco Chanel’s Riviera: a haven of peace full of light under the blue sky, where the skin is tanned and the rhythm is relaxed.





Nars x Christopher Kane limited edition make-up collection


Founded in 1994 by makeup artist and photographer François Nars, French NARS and Scotisch fashion designer Christopher Kane have teamed up to bring you a limited edition capsule collection that is unexpectedly bold, but surprisingly natural. We are huge beauty junkies here at Yakymour, and NARS  has always been a personal favorite of ours. This collection in particular has got us exited because we love the vivid pigments and colors but they are subtle enough for everyday wear.


Here’s what you need to know. The ten piece limited edition line, called Neonnatural (get it. Neon and Natural) is made up of blushes, illuminating multiple sticks (which means they add color to your eyes, cheeks and lips), lip glosses and eyeshadows in unexpectedly bold, neon shades – Christopher Kane’s signature – and nude tones that complement then. Our personal favoritess are the Violet Atom Iiluminating Multiple wich is totally wearable for every day and the Glow Pink Lip Gloss wich has a very sophisticated shine). We also  adore the unusual eye shadow duos with the most unexpected pairings. The palette is so neutral it works with everything from pastels to your little black dress to marsala, the pantone color of the year.

To get your hands on this Limited Edition collection, before it’s too late…
