I know we’re barely into Spring but what I’ve got to show you today just screams “HELLO SUMMER”. Beautiful colours and beautiful products.

I don’t even know where to start with these, they’ve got me all tongue tied. I absolutely LOVE make up, unsurprisingly, since I’m a beauty blogger, but these products have taken my breath away.

Okay, I’ve decided. I’m going to start with showing you the Gloss D’Enfer Maxi Shine glosses. I’ve two shades. 420 – Rouge Shebam (L) and 471-Prune Zip (R).

Dear god, look at those colours!! Okay so the range has 20 shades, in varying degrees of opacity, pigment and some shimmer and some none shimmery. Both of the above are shimmer free and Rouge Shebam is a little more opaque than Prune Zip.  In terms of texture these are amazing. They are non-sticky, long wearing, moisturising and although they aren’t plumping glosses as such they certainly make my lips look plumper.

I am in love. If you are planning to treat yourself to only one high end product this Spring/Summer, get one of these, there are four nude shades, two red shades, two orange shades and twelve variations on pink. I think I’ll treat myself to one or two more of these, I have am completely won over. High impact and highly wearable. Simply stunning. These are £22 each.

Oh oh but I’m not done yet. What about the new Colour lacquers? Well these are available in ten shades  and again I have two shades to show you. Meet 143 – Nahema and 165 Champs Elysees.

I took about 20 photographs of Champs Elysees but I just can’t catch the colour at all accurately. It’s more pinky purple than it looks above and its brighter.

First thing I’m going to say is I’m not wearing any top coat in these pictures. This high shine belongs to the Colour Lacquer alone.  It’s easy to overlook creme polishes as being boring in this day and age where “effects” are the in thing (can I just say that aside from glitter I’ve not seen one single effect that I like???), but even so, I often bypass cremes. But these are so not boring. These are saturated glossy and amazing. There’s a wide brush making application a breeze two strokes for me, one on the little finger, and two coats for opaque perfection. These go on easily, wear well and look beautiful and these two shades in particular are sunshiney bright.

These and all the other shades can be purchased from Selfridges right now, and the ranges will be launched nationwide from 1st May. I can’t wait to get more!

    Oh I love the matching nail varnish / lip gloss trend! Dior did some gorgeous matching polished and lipsticks last season, and these are equally as beautiful 😀 Thanks for posting!
