MAC Toledo Collection Blush Ombre Ripe Peach, Lipglass in Victoriana and Lipstick in Sin, Review, Swatch & FOTD

Today I have a few MAC Toledo Collection items to share with you. The collection went online today in the states and will hit the store on the 5th of February, next week. There are three ombre blushes in the collection for those of you who missed on Proenza Schouler Collection last year. One of them is Ripe Peach, a shade which was originally came out in 2010 for Spring I believe, you can see the photos of the first release here. Afterwards like many other discontinued MAC products it became very hard to find and was sold for collector prices at auctions. It might be the bad news if you have already paid high $$$ to get it but for all of us others, yay, Ripe Peach is back!

Guerlain Météorites Compact #3 Medium, Review, Swatch & Comparison

I hope you are all having a great week. I have started it a bit tough and had an important appointment yesterday. I was hoping that things would calm down after that but I was wrong. It turned out that I have another important appointment in a month and I have to get prepared! Not to mention that I have a deadline in a week. Oh have I forgotten, I am also going to give a lecture to a class of girls because I am an avid girls in technique promoter and that is in four weeks too. I wish I could clone myself and have a make-up twin who only concentrates on pretty things in life, can you relate?

Although February might not be the most active month for Color Me Loud, I have lots of pretties lined-up, waiting to meet you. So stay tuned!

My favorite piece from Guerlain's Spring Collection is definitely Météorites Perles de Blush (reviewed here).Each time I wear it and post a photo, I am asked which blush it is since it looks so natural. It does and even better, it stay put all day long! I have heard that some are turned off by the cardboard packaging. I personally like it, it is not designed to travel with but it is light weight and looks so cute.

I have acquired a few pressed Meteorites recently and haven't used them all that much so the new Météorites Compacts were not must-have for me. But blogger duties called and I ordered one just for experimental reasons. Today I would like to share my thoughts about how this one compares to the previous releases.

Clarins Blush Prodige #08 Sweet Rose, Ombre Matte #03 Taupe and #04 Rosewood, Swatch, Review & FOTD

I hope you are all having a great weekend. I am very close to a deadline. Probably I won't be able to post for a few days but before that I thought I will show you a few new pretties which I enjoyed during last week. Clarins launched Ombre Matte Cream-to-Powder Eyeshadows together with a lovely natural cool toned quad I have reviewed for Fall 2014. Lately they have released a new shade to their latest blush line, Blush Prodige #08 Sweet Rose for their Spring 2015 look. Today I have the blush and two of the Ombre Mattes to share with you.

Tom Ford Traceless Perfecting Foundation #03 Fawn, Review &Swatches

Are you ready for the weekend? Unfortunately I have to get something done so my weekend won't be a real one, yet I am glad to be able to sleep longer. I am setting my hopes high for the next weekend!

My love for Tom Ford Beauty line grow despite my limited access to a counter. Usually when I don't have the opportunity to play with the products over and over again, I fall out of love but Tom and me, it went the other way around. The more I missed him, the stronger my love grew. Each time I visited Berlin, I found myself glued to the counter touching the... products!

During my last visit I was determined to find the right shade of foundation for my complexion. I was expecting to get my hands a little dirty but this visit turned out be more than that! As I couldn't grasp the high tech behind a twist open pump and ended up splashing a good dose of foundation on one of my favorite cashmere sweaters, I thought, Tom, you are nasty!

Long story short me and my sweater were both matched with #03 Fawn of Tom Ford's latest  Traceless Perfecting Foundation which I am testing for the last couple of weeks. Today I would like to share my thoughts with you. And in case you wonder, a touch of stain remover worked wonders and I could save my sweater.

Guerlain Écrin 4 Couleurs #504 Les Précieux Review, Swatch & FOTD, for Les Tendres Spring 2015 Collection

Whenever Guerlain releases a new quad, I go crazy over it. I love the heavy metal packaging and their very finely milled long lasting formula. Most of the time this combination comes with interesting and flattering shade combinations. All of the three quads they have released with Kiss Kiss Fall Collection were superb. There were mattes and shimmers combined in best ways, and I fell especially in love with Les Violines.

Talking about Spring, Guerlain happened to release my favorite quads with 2013 and 2014 Spring Collections, just to name a few, #503 Les Tendres, #502 Coup de Foudre and #501 Attrape-Coeur. Looking at the trend here, 501, 502 and 503, I had to add Guerlain Écrin 4 Couleurs #504 Les Précieux to my stash, and see if it would knock me off my feet as much as the other three did...

I hope you all had a good start in the week. My first day was psychologically as tiring as a whole week so I am ready for the weekend to come!

To conclude my Dior Spring 2015 Kingdom of Colors Reviews, today I have four lovely nail colors for you. At the end of the post, I will also sum up my thoughts about the collection. This year everything went really quick, I can't believe I am almost done with most of the Spring Collection reviews. I will try to add an overview page as soon as my work load allows.

Here is a tower of Dior Vernis #294 Lady, #244 Majesty, #660 Glory and Eclosion Top Coat. I had to fight the lack of sunshine during the weekend so I had to improvise with where to take the photos.  Nevertheless I hope you find them helpful.
