Make Up For Ever – La Boheme Spring 2012

Make Up For Ever have their own take on this seasons folk trend with the La Boheme Spring 2012 Collection. Pastels are a very popular choice for a seasonal colour injection, so they’ve included the key catwalk favourites coral, violet and beige. Pretty….



The star of the collection is a unique limited-edition palette dressed in an entirely homemade creation made of recyclable cardboard. The palette contains 6 limited edition shades with pearly or sparkle finishes: Parma Violet (sparkle finish), Natural Green (pearly finish), Beige (pearly), Brown (sparkle), Lagoon Green (sparkle), Coral (sparkle).




Available in two shades –Red Coral and Peach Beige. Sparkling with iridescent particles. The  imprint of leaves hides inside the tube is very pretty. It’s worth noting that these lipsticks are quite sheer.




Wood inspired shade- a gorgeous matte black/brown. Topped with a floral cap. (€16.50)
