So a couple of weeks back I had the privilege of previewing the Make Up Stores Autumn 2014 collections.
As someone who is already familiar with most of it’s products, I can say they do ‘colour’ really well! Somewhat of an artistry brand if you may, very similar to the likes of Illamasqua and Nars. What I love about brands like this is that the formulations are stellar and pretty much consistent unlike high end brands which seem to release random duds. Their shadows are always very pigmented, the blushes apply like a dream, and the eyeliners are some of the best out there in my humble opinion.
As you could imagine I was very excited to see tonnes of colour in the new releases. ‘Paint’ which is set to release in August being my favourite.
Let me take you through what’s new for Autumn in a collage form ❤ with a few items that caught my eye in each collection.
I like that the autumn releases come in little capsule collections each month.. And this time around there’s Paint, Scream, and Art. All very different as far as the palette goes, but gorgeous none the less!!
Here’s a look at what’s coming out with the Paint collection releasing in August. Talk about about a riot of colour! Don’t you love it??!!!
As you can see, it consists of two eyeshadows, a gloss, lipstick, pencil liner and a marble blush. There’s also fun little neon nail art embellishments which would be perfect for dressing up a simple manicure.
If I had to pick one item, i’d say go for the marble blush Rosso Verona (SGD 32). These are soo pretty and pack some very good colour!
For those with a more adventurous spirit, the two matte shadows (Atelier and Paint retailing at SGD 27) make for very interesting additions to any makeup collection. Although the satin finish is my personal favourite, Make Up Store is actually known for their amazing quality matte products, so you can’t go wrong there..
Considering the entire collection, the most unique though was Blue Pigment dual colour eye pencil (SGD 27) and the duo lipstick Graphic (SGD 29) and of course the candy inspired lip gloss in Portrait! (Which make for fabulous gifts btw) .
P.S- Portrait is actually more of a flesh toned pink shade on the lips. The burgundy and pink mixes into this interesting colour which is extremely flattering. This retails at SGD 31.
On to some pics I snapped at the event 🙂

Hope you enjoyed the pic heavy journey through Make Up Store Autumn 2014. Stay tuned for swatches and a makeup look featuring the products of the Paint collection and Scream collection later on this month.
