Hello! My name is Melanie and I’m writing on the blog www.mel-et-fel.com since four years. The main topics on my blog are high end cosmetics, skin care and perfumes. I’m totally addicted to lipsticks and can’t resist corals, pinks and mauves. Sometimes I love to create creative looks with lots of colors, glitter and fake lashes. But today it will be more softly: I want to present my current favorites for spring.
When I started my blog some years ago some of my first shown products were from MAC and the label accompanied me until today, but this spring MAC accomplished to create an eyeshadow palette with five permanent eyeshadows that I didn`t own so far. I love the Stroke at palette from the Cinderella collection, especially Vapour and Omega. Vapour is the perfect shade to blend eyeshadows out or to lighten up the eyelid. Omega works well as contouring shade and eyebrow powder for me. The other shades are nice, also the hyped Satin Taupe, but these two shades, so unremarkable they are, are definitely my favorites and my constant companions.
I love light, slightly sheer shades for my nails, especially in the spring. No surprise I like the new Soft Shades collection by OPI. My favorite is Chiffon my Mind, a sheer white with a tiny little hint of pink and fine, blue glitter. On the photo I wear three coats. On my nails, the glitter is nearly invisible but it’s there and it’s so beautiful! Maybe it looks just like another white but I compare the shade with Eastern Light by Chanel, a true white, and Chiffon my Mind seems so much softer. I love it!
The limited Joli Baume Eclat du Jour by Clarins is my new daily companion in my handbag. The packaging looks so cheerful, I love the fruity smell and the moisturizing is not phenomenal but really okay. With pH reactive pigments the lip balm tints the lips into a soft, fresh pink.
Another spring companion is Love Story by Chloé. I got a few spring fragrances in the last weeks and it’s hard to decide which one I like best but this one is in the vanguard. I love the package, the idea and the smell itself. Blithe neroli, orange blossom and stephanotis come upon a warm base of cedar and musk. It`s a delicate, feminine scent of white flowers, just perfect for spring.
Especially in spring and summer I prefer sheer lipsticks with a shiny finish and glosses. The new Tint in Oil by YSL keeps what they promise. Texture and finish are something between oil and gloss and the color tints the lips slightly. The feeling is very lightweight, non-sticky and pleasant. The color of my choice isCherry my Cherié but it won’t be my last one. Cherry my Cheriè is one of the most intense colors of the range, a lush pink.
A perfect all-rounder is the YSL Kiss & Blush in Pink Hedonist. It’s a hybrid product for lips and cheeks. For the upper look I used it as blush, lipstick and also as eyeshadow. I think, it’s a lovely, soft pastel look for lighter complexions. In order that the eyes don’t look sick with this warm pinky shade I work with a precise, black eyeliner and a light, neutral eyeshadow (MAC Vapour). For the eyebrows I used MAC Omega by the way.
