Purples and pastels for spring

March 24th, 2011
While we at L’Onglex never like to think that we’re the type to follow the crowd, one trend that has is gently swaying us toward it’s elegant charms is this seasons pastel eye. As seen on everyone from Katy Perry to Kim Kardashian sugar shaded eyes are the perfect antidote to winters busy colours.
Bobbi Brown’s Peony & Python palette has already wetted our appetite (read our review here), but we’ve also been dipping our brush into some ice-cream colours from MAC not to mention the odd peachy shade from Rimmel.
Not wishing to overdo the whole thing we’ve had a dig around and when it comes to wearing it the key is to avoid at all costs looking like a rainbow. Pinks and peaches are a great way to do this look subtly and rather than mixing and matching justpick a palette and stick to it.
When it comes to application, easy does it!  Start with a wash of light shadow for the base and build up more intense shades in the same colour for a dusty, graded finish.
In the event you’re finding pastels and purples a bit too tame you can always spice things up with a little metallic or shimmer shading to add definition, just apply with a light hand and remember less is more !!

MAC hits the beach

March 22nd, 2011
Now that the sub-tropical majesté of an Irish April is very nearly ours we thought it might be high time L’Onglex ditched the winter face and headed for the beach.
Whilst it might be a bit too early for lilo’s, ice-cream and fish and chips, MAC’s Surf Baby Collection might just provide us with the excuse to start summer a bit early. Pitch perfect if you intend on following this seasons neon trends the new range comes with lip glass, blushes, eyeshadow, eye pencils and a rather bright line in nail lacquer.
Aside from the fact it’s MAC and shiny and gorgeous and new, L’Onglex is also loving the names. Bust Out lipstick, Surf the Ocean pigment stack and Short Shorts eyeshadow! Although we will probably end up shelling out for the lot when the time comes,  our stand-out piece so far has to be the My Paradise Coral blusher with champagne and gold flowers for some subtle summer highlighting –  swoon !

Bespoke brows for London Fashion Week

February 18th, 2011
Whether you go the salon route or take the bottle approach, matching your collars with your cuffs is always a bit of a tricky one. Lets face it, eyebrows just never come out the same colour and the mismatch that is the end result is always a bit of a giveaway.
Quite why nobody has come up with a solution to this two tone dilemma is really beyond our reckoning but news this week of a London salon who are rolling out a range of brow colours in time for London Fashion Week has had us quite intrigued.
Using a hand painted palette of custom dye which features around fifty shades, the treatment from the people at Blink Bar promises a match to any colour and to  any tone and is so accurate we are also assured it can even be matched to highlights. Since the problem with dyeing your hair and not your eyebrows is the difference in colour, L’Onglex did wonder whether the dye could be used on lashes as well … it can.
Having worked out that we’d really like a go of this to see if it works were probably going to have to wait for a little while until the salons in Ireland get round to making up a batch or two of their own dyes for our colouring pleasure. As much as we love getting our ducks in a row, getting on a Ryanair to London to have our brows dyed does seem to be a treatment too far for the moment.

body shop rocks

February 10th, 2011
We do love a good collaboration here at L’Onglex HQ so when we got wind of the latest launch from The Body Shop we just thought it might be good of us to share the deets !
Quite possibly ( actually … no definitely ) the brightest collection we’ve come across this spring, the limited edition ‘Brush With Fashion’ collection has been created in collaboration with the internationally acclaimed London College of Fashion and the result is the new range wrapped up in a whimsically bright collection of packaging.
Brimming with handbag friendly products the collection includes an a Illuminating Face Base, Hi-Shine Lip Treatment , Tailored Cheek Tint , Super Volume Mascara as well as portable palettes for the eyes. Although pretty, L’Onglex is also assured that this isn’t just a case of a pretty product in pretty packaging but as the sets come with the added bonus of individual brushes for each product topping up on the go is a breeze and you’ll never get your pinks mixed with your blues.
The collection hits counters at the beginning of the month and as we’ve already got our eye on at least one of the palettes we can pretty much guarantee we’ll be sporting something bright for spring and summer.

80s Bright Yellow with defined crease tutorial.
Add a touch of mac to a touch of primer, a healthy dose of yellow shadow to a rather nice smudged charcoal and what do you get ?
In L’Onglex’s case a mess. But if you’re the magnificent Pixiwoo and you happen to be rather a deft hand at all things make-up then the end result is some fabulous 80’s inspired eye colouring.
Not only is it brilliantly reminiscent of Grace Jones in her prime but the more we dig around for this seasons on trend eye shades the more yellow seems to be mentioned. Having missed it completely in the first instance we’re now thinking of popping out to do some serious scouring for similar shades.
Finally, although we’ve been posting loads of videos of late we’ve never really gotten round to featuring anything from the fantastic folks at Pixiwoo http://pixiwoo.blogspot.com/. Having now watched this a couple of times we love the look and will be posting a lot more on the subject.

Things we loved this week: MAC WonderWoman

January 14th, 2011
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YVLJcBsD__E
It’s kitsch, it’s camp, it’s colourful and we’re loving it. Set for release in March 2011 the above pictures are from MAC’s new WonderWoman range and L’Onglex can’t wait to get every single item for our collection.
If you are not sure what the fuss is about the launch in question is based on the comic series superhero which was turned into a TV series which ran between 1975-1979. WonderWoman herself was the first real female superhero who developed her crime fighting skills with the help of various badly made items of costume jewelry.
Helped by along by the special powers given to her by a magic belt, her ability to deflect bullets using her wristbands and the ability to make men tell the truth with the use of a magic lasso, the series became a instant phenomenon and propelled Lynda Carter to worldwide fame.
Why Mac has chosen to take the range as it’s inspiration we are not quite sure but if it gives us even a smidgen of her powers we’ll be more than pleased with the outlay. Lets face it, who isn’t loving that gold make-up bag – click here here’s to see the 70’s TV show in all its glory !

Essence budget beauty buys bid to beat the January blues !

January 12th, 2011
Essence budget beauty buys bid to beat the January blues !
With the New Year now in full swing L’Onglex is doing our level best to rein in our spending. Even though we re-gifted everything we possibly could the run up to Christmas still saw us leaking euros like buggery on a raft of sparkly seasonal supplements.
Short of going into Boots with an abacus, being arrested for shoplifting or entering beauty rehab we are going to have to look at ways to curb our spending over the next couple of months. But this is so much easier said than done. With the new season s collections now upon us, our New Year resolution to spend less on beauty is proving to be a very hard ask.
Only two weeks into January we were already feeling the withdrawal symptoms when we noticed the rather on-trend monochrome collection pictured above. Thinking we couldn’t do it because we’d promised ourselves we wouldn’t and then giving in to our cravings almost immediately, we were just about to reach for the credit card when we noticed it was from Essence.
Having seriously wowed us last year they’ve managed to go and do it again with the new Black and White collection. Whilst this may be shorn of expensive packaging and luxurious glossy adverts it does fit the bill in that it’s just so perfectly on-trend and seriously cost effective. With shadows coming in at €1.99, the Duo Eye Pencil at  €2.49 and the polish at a measly €—— we’ve worked out that individually they cost less than a bag of chips … which leads us quite nicely onto another resolution we’ve already broken !

Pump up the volume – it’s our mascara picks

January 10th, 2011
Pump up the Volume – some of our favourite Mascaras
Don’t really know how this happened exactly but somewhere along the way L’Onglex seemed to fall in love with volumising mascaras. Why exactly this was, how this developed, and when exactly we started making eyes at lash thickening products we can’t tell you. As is always the case for those with an addiction to the slap, one is never satisfied and we knew we wouldn’t be happy til we’d tried everything we could get our greedy hands on.
Having really thought about it, the desire to lash up probably came as a result of our eyes exploding when we tried out those glue on lash thingies at a salon who shall remain nameless. Obviously, being the sort we are, the thought of having luridly long, outrageously luscious lashes was too good not to be true. But once the things were glued on and we’d had to suffer the ignominy of having to crawl back to a salon indifferent to our plight and beg for the things to be unglued from our peepers we became a little more discerning about we stick on our eyes.
Anyhows, before we bore you to sleep with our sob stories we can at least reveal the fruits of our labour. No, we haven’t tried everything out there but we can say hand on heart that we’ve been through enough to now know a good un’ from a bad un’. Here, for your consideration, are a selection of the best volumising mascaras that we’ve managed to find over the last year – read it, and don’t weep !
Lesson 1 – Chanel Inimitable Intense is best for length….
Those of you with a desire for some length, some volume and a certain elegance of application will love this one. As the the uniquely designed mascara wand features bristles which align really well each sweep tends to go on really smoothly. Ok, it’s not the fattest lash you’ll ever flutter but it doesn’t cake or crack and the formula is really thin which helps with building the stuff in layers. As a mascara for daywear this is light enough for lengthening by day and can be beefed up for something a bit less subtle for evening wear. Although they probably won’t thank us for saying this, €28 isn’t particularly purse friendly but as it’s pretty adaptable Inimitable Intense makes our list.
Lesson 2 –  Rimmel’s The Max Volume Flash is best value….
A keratin enriched formula, a larger than life wand and soup-thick lashes in less than two sweeps … it can only be Rimmel Max Volume ! At about €8 a pop this is about the best we’ve worn in this price range. In fact, it was one of the best we wore full stop. Having been on the L’Onglex make-up table for some time a rather nice effect of using this was that over time we found our formerly flimsy fluttering went from bad to better. As the formula for Max Volume contains added collagen our lashes fattened up with prolonged use – can’t say fairer than that !
Lesson 3 – Model Co Fiber Lash is more than a gimmick …
As mentioned in other posts on these pages L’Onglex’s biggest beauty gripe has to be our panda eyes. After this comes the fact that even at best our lashes could only be described as .. well .. ‘barely there’. Being in need of a little substance to go with a raging case of lash envy when we first laid eyes on Model Co Fiber Lash we ended up doing a bit of a double take.
Simply, this is a two part mascara which comes blacker than black and is applied and then layered over with hundreds of teeny tiny lash filaments which add density and volume to the liquid. The end result is bulky, sultry and a complete fake. On the downside it’s €35 but if you really struggle to get something noticeable in the lash department you may as well bit the bullet rather than go through three or four of something else. Despite the fact that it sounds quite complex application isn’t to difficult once you’ve got the hang of it.
Lesson 4 – Maybeline’s The Falsies is anything but ….
Whoever devised the formula for The Falsies deserves to be bestowed some kind of beauty sainthood. No matter how many coats you apply it just builds and the fact is unless your really working the whole starry eyed goth look you probably only need one-and-a-half. Yes, if your lashes are are really short it’s probably not the best but on the hand if there long enough so that you can get them round the spoon shaped brush we think this is perfect. As soon as we’d worked out that you have to let the first coat dry a little to keep things neat we were quickly of the opinion that this is the best mascara we’ve ever had.

Beauty is in the Jeans

MAC_Jeanius

As the bells have been rung, the corks popped and the alarms reset we at L’Onglex are firmly back on the grind.
Having arrived this morning and done our new years greetings in a sort of jaded way it quickly became apparent that we would have to find news of something to get us through the day without screaming.
Having browsed all our usual haunts and found not very much of note we were just about to give up and do some real work when news reached us of the release of a certain Spring line by MAC which has been firmly placed on the pay-day wishlist.
Taking inspiration from the most versatile item in our wardrobe Mac’s new Jeanius collection features pastel lipgloss, Denim Nail Polish and a droolworthy shadow which comes complete with a rather fetching metallic button.
Being as we are suckers for MAC polish the shade that has caught our eye is known as Biker Blue and comes not just with the aforementioned denim colour but also some electric pink shimmering. As this is one of the first launches of the New Year we predict neon nails will once again be doing the rounds come summer.
L’Onglex predicts we will be somewhat poorer come March 3rd !

Christmas make-up … pink over orange ???

December 7th, 2010
Not sure if we should say this but we’re going to anyway. Just this afternoon L’Onglex got wind that Lisa Eldridges new Christmas looks video was now online.
Thinking we were getting a taste of the demur, refined and always elegant make-up styling that has become her hallmark we were shocked to discover this one contains green(ish) glitter, some cappuccino eye colouring and a dose of pink lip gloss applied over an orange lipstick …. uggghhh … thought we.
Having now watched the video from the comfort of bed and a hot water bottle we can absolutely, positively say the idea sounds terrible but the end result is divine.
Apart from loving the nail colour we are also wondering if the  amazing Lisa Eldridge will ever do a look that isn’t perfect ?

Not sure if we should say this but we’re going to anyway. Just this afternoon L’Onglex got wind that Lisa Eldridge’s new Christmas looks video was now online.

Thinking we were getting a taste of the demur, refined and ever elegant styling that has become her hallmark, we were then shocked to discover the new video contains green(ish) glitter, some cappuccino eye colouring and a dose of pink lip gloss applied over an orange lipstick …. uggghhh … thought we.

Having now watched the video from the comfort of a warm bed and an even warmer hot water bottle we can absolutely, positively, definitely say the idea sounds terrible but the end result is divine.

Apart from being completely overawed by her nail shade L’Onglex is also wondering if the amazing Lisa Eldridge will ever do a look that isn’t perfect ?
