I had few press events during the last two weeks where I learned about new collections for spring and new brands that will be available in Belgium. It was a lovely experience to test them all and hear what they’re all about. I’d like to present you all with the musthaves for Spring and Summer 2013.



French brand Ioma is one to watch! You know how I love innovations and tailormade products, well, this brand has all of it! First you register and your face gets scanned and then they make you a list of products (like a prescription) that is perfect for you. When you go back when you’re out of products, then they scan your face again to see the improvements. The name Ioma is chosen wisely: when a women would read it while watching in the mirror, she would read ‘à moi’ what means ‘for me’.

Givenchy is a master when it comes to very colourful feminine collections. This collection is not different. Love the bright colours and the matching lipsticks and nailpolishes.

M.a.c. Cosmetics has two collections coming up where I’m very fond of. The first one is ‘the year of the snake’, love the purple elements in that collection. Purple goes good with green eyes, like mine! :)

The second collection is only for sale online: the STRONG collection. Love the eye palettes, very edgy and fit well for both day and night make-up.




The Burberry collection I say, tested and approved of during a bloggers night last week. I did not now much of the beauty and cosmetics line of Burberry, but I have to say that I’m amazed! Lovely colour combinations!

Rimmel launched the Apocalips Lip Laquer that gives your lips the ‘polish-glam’ effect.

So, this is a selection of essential beauty products for this coming Spring and Summer. As you can see this Spring and Summer is all about colour!

What is your favourite brand?

Next week I’ll feature the Perfume essentials for 2013.

    Zelf ben ik het meest benieuwd naar die MAC-collectie. Ga me moeten inhouden met al dat paars in de Year of the Snake-collectie. Het is dan ook mijn favoriete kleur :-)
