OPI Launches the Nordic Collection, Featuring 12 New Shades for Fall/Winter 2014

Inspired by the great northern lights in Finland, deep blue fjords in Norway, and colorful houses in Copenhagen, Nordic Collection by OPI brings the diverse colors of its namesake region to nails and toes for fall/winter 2014. This new collection of 12 lacquers features a palette ranging from spicy browns in shades of bronze, cinnamon and caramel to rich purples in wine, black cherry and blue-violet hues, with accents of creamy coral, pink and sea green.

“When creating colors for a new seasonal collection, I always draw inspiration from the food, music, art, landscape and street style of a particular destination,” remarks Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Co-Founder & Executive VP. “While conceptualizing the shades of the Nordic Collection, I ate cinnamon buns and drank glogg, snapped photographs of brightly painted houses, and gazed in wonder at the region’s topography – from the northern lights and midnight sun to lava flats and deep fjords. All of these diverse elements came together to inspire an equally varied array of colors that capture the aesthetic of the Nordic region.

“Contrasts were also seen on fall runways, where sheer fabrics were paired with fleece and woolen plaids were embellished with colorful beadwork and intricate lace,” adds Weiss-Fischmann. “Nordic Collection by OPI complements the oxblood, coral and earthy tones seen this season and offers a variety of hues. With so many color choices, the Nordic Collection makes it easy to experiment with new nail looks and cultivate personal style. I believe strongly in experimenting with beauty and fashion until finding a unique look. We are sure of only one taste – our own.”

Nordic Collection by OPI includes the following shades in both nail lacquer and GelColor formulas:

The Rio Rush Collection by Gucci Westman for Revlon Summer 2014

olivia-wilde_Rio_Rush

A colourful, vibrant limited edition collection from Revlon, the Rio Rush Collection feels like heat, summer, salsa! A little bit of info from Revlon:

The latest collection from Revlon Global Artistic Director Gucci Westman transports you to the lush city of Rio de Janeiro during the height of its famous ‘Carnaval,’ a celebration of life, of dancing, and colour. The Rio Rush Collection by Gucci Westman for Revlon Summer 2014 captures the essence of this festival and brings together bright, tropical colours that evoke the sexiness of this vibrant carnival south of the Equator.

“I pictured a provocative Brazilian woman, full of life and fun,” said Westman of her collection inspiration. “She is bold yet sensual; fierce with a touch of glamour.”

This highly anticipated collection for Summer ‘14 draws a tropical vibe with radiant makeup for a look that is both
sexy and alluring.

Revlon ColorStay 16 Hour Eye Shadow is available in two new shades, Exotic and Wild.

Revlon_Rio_Rush_Eye_ShadowsColorStay 16 Hour Eye Shadow in Wild (L) and Exotic (R)

Wild is a gorgeously arranged quad containing a frosty vanilla, metallic taupe, sunburnt orange and deep teal (above left, clockwise from the lightest shade). You’ll notice it contains the complementary shades of teal and orange-red – perfect when paired! Unfortunately the beautiful taupe blended with my slightly tan skin, but you can see a hint of it at the top of the photo – it actually makes a gorgeous nude, even on my skin!

Revlon_Rio_Rush_Wild_Eye_ShadowsWild quad

Exotic contains a soft metallic bisque, a muted violet, a vibrant matte yellow, and a soft black. Once again, complementary colours yellow and violet are present, resulting in a fun ’80′s effect when paired!

Revlon’s famous Super Lustrous Lipstick is available in three new shades: Brazilian Tan, Carnival Spirit and Sultry Samba:

Revlon_Rio_Rush_lipsticks

Swatches on my hand, with Sultry Samba on top, Carnival Spirit in middle, and Brazilian Tan on bottom. You can see the sheer finish of Carnival Spirit:
Revlon_Rio_Rush_lipstick_swt

Brazilian Tan, a gorgeous nude creme that I absolutely loved, applied perfectly with an opaque, creamy finish:

Revlon_Super_Lus_Rio_Brazilian_Tan

Sultry Samba, the most vivid of the three, is a bright fuchsia that can be built up to full opacity with a fairly matte finish:

Revlon_Super_Lus_Rio_Sultry_Samba

Finally, Carnival Spirit appears bright in the tube yet is the softest of the three, applying a shiny, sheer wash of orange on your lips. It can be built up but not to full opacity. Its finish is moist and rich and feels amazing!

Revlon_Super_Lus_Rio_Carnival_Spirit

Revlon introduces four new limited edition shades with this Rio Rush Collection: Carioca Crush, Copa Sunset, Gold Goddess and Oi Beautiful. I have three of the four for you, starting with Oi Beautiful, a pretty mid-tone purple creme. Great coverage, high shine, all at two coats (no top coat):

Revlon_Rio_Rush_lacquer_OiBeautiful

A gold flake glitter, Gold Goddess has a clear base, making it a perfect topper for any shade! I paired it with Oi Beautiful for a gorgeous, regal soft glitter gradient:

Revlon_Rio_Rush_lacquer_OiBeautiful_Gold_GoddessIs that not a perfect pairing?

Carioca Crush is a beautiful blue shade with a slight jelly finish (you can see the jelly ever so slightly at the tips of my nails), so does need careful application. The work is well worth it as the shade is a muted blue, making it very wearable, especially with that gorgeous shine:

Revlon_Rio_Rush_lacquer_CariocaCrush

Also available, Revlon ColorStay’s Creme Gel Eyeliner in Rio Blue. This metallic blue is the perfect finish to your Wild or Exotic eyes:

On the bridge of an ocean liner blows the wind of liberty. Cruise elegance reigns. Dior renews ties with the world of the great transatlantic crossings, inspired by the travel spirits of its first Resort and Spring line in 1948. Created by Tyen, the 2014 Summer Look unveils a cruise make-up collection: a palette of navy blue, primary red and sandy beige. The skin wears the radiance of the sun and an outdoors glow. Eyes take to the seas in ultramarine blue, while lips light up in red, and nails wear the sailor’s strips.

This season, chic is taking a breath of maritime air.

A radiant tan, a natural glow and a nude skin sensation: under the sun of fashion, Dior has created a new wardrobe for the perfect, dream holiday complexion.

Both a foundation primer and a gradual self-tanner, Diorskin Nude Tan Prime & Bronze is a revolution in self-tanning make-up. From the very first application, skin looks warmer and the complexion is smoother and more even. As the days pass, the tan becomes deeper.

It is the first step in the summer make-up routine: apply Diorskin Nude Tan Prime & Bronze to cleansed and moisturized skin for instant beauty and radiance. Apply every day for a week for a lasting tan.

Dior_Transat_Diorskin_Prime_swatch2Diorskin Nude Tan Prime & Bronze, massaged into skin

Created especially for summer, lashes find their sea legs with Dior’s waterproof version of its professional volume and spectacular curve mascara,  Diorshow Iconic Overcurl.

Diorshow Iconic Overcurl Waterproof mascara is not Limited Edition and will remain in the line beyond Summer 2014.

Jettison all but the essential: radiance. Dior has created Diorskin Nude Shimmer. A subtle combination of shimmer and pigment, this illuminating powder recreates the effect of nude skin bathed in freshness. With one stroke of the brush the skin blushes gently, catching the light and revealing a sculpted face. The complexion has a naturally dazzling outdoors glow.

Note that Diorskin Nude Shimmer is not Limited Edition and will remain in the line beyond Summer 2014.

Under the aegis of ocean blue, eyes dive into summer.
With a rope motif signed Dior, shades of blue and brown, sand and orange, are layered in shimmer, iridescent and satin finishes. These new colour harmonies captured by the 5 Couleurs palette are a make-up version of the luxury sportswear look so cherished by Christian Dior. A uniform for eyes that is both elegant and casual, worn both in town and on the beach.

Dior_Transat_5Colour5 Couleur Transat Edition in 564 Sundeck (L) and 344 Atlantique (R)

“On holiday, you may wear all the colourful and casual clothes you like. But you must remain elegant at all costs.” Christian Dior

A flash of brightness on a summer night, lipstick adds warmth to your tan and lends sophistication to a nude face all on its own. In incendiary carmine (Mayday) or radiant mandarin (Cruise), Dior Addict Lipstick displays its incomparably chic signature look.

I had the opportunity to test drive BLONDME’s Keratin Restore Blonde Shampoo, Keratin Restore Blonde Conditioner, and the Shine Enhancing Spray Conditioner, all at a perfect time as my hair had been high-lighted quite a few levels lighter than my natural shade. A creamy shampoo with a soft, salon-treatment scent, it provided a great cleanse and protected my hair, while the conditioner was deeply nourishing. Considering it was not a mask or a deep conditioner, the Keratin Restore softened my hair and made it feel amazing and shiny! The Shine Enhancing Spray, when settled, appears clear, but give it a good shake and its golden pigments come to life, leaving your hair with an instant gorgeous shiny finish with a delicious scent!

The Transat collection takes its cruise style codes right to the fingertips: painted vibrant red, sailor blue or rope beige, nails parade in maritime stripes with a transparent sticker kit featuring the CD logo. Also included in the kit is a mini nail file and instruction card.

Incredibly easy to apply for a chic and playful manicure.

Dior_Transat_Sailor_pk

Available in three limited edition shades, Vernis Transat Manicure will impress even the harshest beauty critics.

Let’s start with Sailor (700)! Blue is my absolute favourite colour, and Sailor was immediately a stand-out. As I’ve said before, I don’t always wear blue nail polish (as much as I adore the colour), simply because I feel that some shades can look… well, immature. No such worries here! Sailor is a beautiful royal blue, just deep enough to be sexy and classic, and just bright enough to draw compliments from strangers. Seriously, I received more compliments about my manicure than I can remember while shopping and lunching one day, with Sailor on!

Sailor is a crelly (cream-jelly) formula that leans slightly more jelly. Possessing the tiniest hint of silver shimmer (like the other two shades), Sailor dries quickly to a mirror-like shine, making top coat virtually unnecessary. Its jelly formula can dry with a hint of shrinkage, so I do recommend wrapping the tips of your nails as you paint to ensure coverage dries right to the tips. And there was absolutely no staining upon removal. Below, two coats of Sailor over Dior Base Coat Abricot:

Dior_Vernis_Transat_Sailor

You can see the gorgeous delicate silver shimmer in the sun, below (click pic for full size):

Dior_Vernis_Transat_Sailor_sn

A beautiful bright red, Captain (750) leans slightly warm without being overtly orange. It is truly a vivid, spectacular red possessing the same hidden silver shimmer as Sailor. Also a crelly formula, it applies flawlessly and covers perfectly even on its first coat. Drying to a stunning high shine like Sailor, it too, can skip top coat. Here are two coats over Dior’s Base Coat:

Dior_Vernis_Transat_Captain

Rounding out a trio of sublime polishes, the neutral in this collection is the sandy greige Yacht (210). A very neutral beige, I wish I had at least two backups of this beauty, because it is that deserving. I have worn this polish multiple times already and am starting to worry about the wear in my bottle! Another Dior Vernis, another spectacular formula, this time in a gorgeous creme. Yacht has the same hidden silver shimmer as Captain and Sailor, though it is almost invisible in this nude. Below, two coats over Dior’s Base Coat:

Dior_Vernis_Transat_Yacht

Dior Vernis Transat Manicure sets in Yacht, Sailor and Captain ($31 Cdn each) are available now in limited release (since May 1, 2014) at Dior counters everywhere. I heard that Sailor quantities were running low at some Dior counters, so call ahead!

 

For more information (no shipping available to Canada), head to Dior.com and you can shop online at thebay.com!

What is your favourite of the three shades (if you can pick one)?

Dior Presents Cruise Collection 2015 Makeup!

For the first time ever, Peter Philips has created and styled the make-up for the Dior Cruise Collection runway show.

Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director for Dior Make-up has, for the first time, worked with Raf Simons on the Dior Cruise 2015 runway show.

He has created make-up in total symbiosis with the collection, in harmony with the looks, which are colorful with splashes of black. “I wanted to create make-up that was both light and sophisticated,” emphasizes Philips, “in keeping with the Cruise spirit, fluid clothing and the summery atmosphere. The common theme in this collection is in fact the color black, which links all the looks together. Raf Simons and I wanted the make-up to be graphic and elegant, to accentuate both the beauty of the silhouettes, and this omnipresent black color.”

Make-Up

Eyes

Peter Philips emphasizes that “the eyes are the focal point of this make-up look thanks to the black eyeliner drawn straight across the upper eyelid using the new Dior It-Line Eye-Liner in black (Summer 2014). The same eyeliner is also drawn across the outer half of the eyelid, making the eyes look bigger and adding sophistication. I also chose to shade the eyelids with the new Bar 5 Couleurs Palette (Fall 2014), which contains a color scheme of iridescent black, gray, pink and white. Lashes are coated with Diorshow Iconic Overcurl Waterproof in black or Dior Addict It-Lash Mascara in black (Summer 2014) and eyebrows are accentuated without looking too heavy, using Diorshow Powder Eyebrow Pencil.”

Dior_Cruise_9150

Complexion

A semi-matte complexion is obtained using Diorskin Star foundation. “I wanted to create the illusion of a perfect complexion that is both matte and radient,” he explains. “Cheekbones are emphasized with a light sweep of DiorBlush Vibrant Color Powder in My Rose which is also brushed across the chin to frame the face.”

Lips

“We chose a discreet and natural lip in a beige tone, which is simply accentuated with Rouge Dior in Trompe-l’Oeil.”

Nails

“Hands are also discreet and very natural in Dior Vernis in Muguet, which adds a hint of soft pink to nails.

When I first heard that OPI and Coca-Cola were partnering, I was curious about the shades… what could they create other than, you know, Coke brown, Coke-logo red or sparkly clear? And I must say, I am impressed by the variety and number of shades! Which colours are you most eyeing?
