There’s a new make-up line in town, and it’s oh so trendy! Toronto gals got their first look at NVME Cosmetics’ full line of lipsticks and lip glosses on Monday night at Jolie Beauty Bar, and then gathered up to make their purchase. Some even left with one in every shade! And how could they not?

This line is different than most others –sisters Melanie Fialho and Viviana Lucas are a hands-on duo who worked on this project from start to finish.They picked the chic hounds-tooth packaging,  sassy scent, and colours to covet! The result? Smooth lipsticks and glosses that nourish your pout, and won’t leave you looking chapped. Oh, and have I mentioned how stylish the tube is? Prepare to be approached by curious fashionistas when you touch-up, ’cause pattern is the new black!

Back to Basics: 3 Classic Colours for Your Nails

When it comes to nail polish (and much like other aspects of the modern life) we are faced with endless options! Blues, greens, yellows and even browns are all acceptable shades. Oh and did I mention sparkles, matte top coats, nail decals?  But don’t be like a kid in a candy store and opt for the brightest combination there is. Yeah, it might be fun to sport it for a special event, other than that it’s best to stick to the classics. To help you avoid looking like a kaleidoscope, here are 3 of those colours:

Riveting Red: There’s nothing like red nails! With shades as light as Santa’s suit, even as dark as maroon, they can be seductive and fun, depending on your outfit and the occasion. Needless to say, this colour is versatile and can work well for the office professional to the girl next-door.

Basic Black: This polish shade is no longer punk-appropriate only. It’s dark, decadent, elegant. And speaking from the perspective of someone who likes everything to match, black goes with it all.

Petal Pink: What else is as fresh, simple, and clean as pale pink? Sometimes, barely there shades are best. This little tint can make a big difference, making you look put together.

So throw on a top coat to keep the chips away and you’ll be on your way.

Lock Lips with This Season’s Bold Shades

This summer, pucker up for the brightest lip shades! From firey fuchsias and bright oranges to dark reds, these powerful hues were worn by almost every female film star at Cannes. Isla Fisher impressed in a cherry hue while Nicole Kidman and Emma Watson sported punchy pinks. And so the trend has been set.

Now, a bold lip is nothing new in the world of beauty. It’s been worn for so long and so often that it is a classic. But what’s different this time around, is that these bold shades are worn to stand out on their own. The make-up palette is neutral. Barely there. Natural as the day you were born. What I’m trying to say is, skip that second coat of mascara and go easy on the eyeliner. “Carey Mulligan at Cannes” is your motto.

So leave the smokey eye and rosy cheeks for another night out, and opt instead for only lips that worthy of French Riviera red carpets!
