Christian Dior believed that true sophistication and elegance often arose from the combination of unexpected colors, textures and effects, which can often be seen played out in the colorful, unexpected designs on the Dior runway from the inception of the brand in 1947.

Review, Swatches: Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Unknown Pleasures Fall/Winter 2014 Collection - Metallic/Matte Lip Tar, Nail Lacquer, Pencil Shades

Sadly, San Diego Comic Con has come and gone. But I’m still madly obsessed with some of the cosplay awesomeness seen on blogs and Tumblrs everywhere. Sure, I don’t have the guts to go entirely blue (and nekkid!) like some Mystique look-a-likes, but I don’t mind sporting a vibrant and comic-inspired lip once in awhile either.

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Dune Generation Summer 2014 Stained Gloss Collection!

Luckily the NEW! Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Unknown Pleasures Fall/Winter Colour 2014 Collection allows me to channel my inner superhero, as its dark and off kilter colors are great for all those fun occasions where you definitely want to stand out. Packed with NEW! Lip Tar shades, Nail Lacquers and Cosmetic Colour Pencil shades, there’s something for any wannabe cosplayer (like yours truly) inside this fantastic collection.

Review, Swatches: Channel Your Inner Bombshell With Dolce & Gabbana Summer Glow Passion Duos Collection - Makeup, Lipstics!

Every time I’m sad or feeling a bit down, nothing cheers me up more than the glamorous pizazz, and undeniable romance, found in a Dolce & Gabbana commercial. Yes, I’m an escapist. I know. But living through Scarlett Johansson and Matthew McConaughey stroll around New York puts a smile on my face more than a heaping bowl of pasta.

Shades From Left To Right: Lily, Lotus And Amaryllis

To get that Dolce & Gabbana burst of happy into my beauty routine, the NEW! Summer Glow Collection of Passion Duos bring warmth and fabulous color to my lips like the care-free Italian Dolce & Gabbana muses roaming around Sicily.

Shades From Right To Left: Lotus, Lily And Amaryllis

Now, I know I’m no Sophia Loren or Monica Bellucci, but I can’t help but feel like a silver screen bombshell with each swipe of this creamy lipstick. Fusing together highly-pigmented color with an ultra-shiny glossy core, it’s hard not to fall madly in love with these shades. With 4 NEW! floral-inspired shades (and mighty fine packaging may I add!) just in time for summer, my usual lipsticks are getting jealous.

To get my bombshell babe on, I grabbed my clip-on extensions and reached for each trusty tube for that unforgettable La Dolce Vita look, minus the beautiful fountain. For a flirty pink pout, the Amaryllis Passion Duo brings a passionate pink to your lips without caking on or drying them out.

However, if you crave more of a soft nude, the Lotus and Amaryllis Passion Duos can give your pucker a muted pink or sandy nude color instantly. I’ll admit that these 2 shades didn’t flatter me too well upon application, so instead of wasting too gorgeous colors, I mixed these romantic hues together for a ballet-slipper taupe.
