*New* Merged Bronzers

The last of our reveal posts showing you our brand new Blushers and Bronzers, today we have our Merged Bronzers to show you and we think they're beauts! In the same vain as our Merged Eyeshadows and Merged Blushers, they contain a few different swirly shades of bronzer all mixed together to create a unique and gorgeous look. The reason why we create Merged products is because the finish is unrivalled in texture and application, they're soft, blendable and work fantastically when used on the cheeks or the eyes. They're glittery but not chunky glitter, and they're pigmented but not so intense it's daunting. They can be built up really easily for a sheer wash on the cheeks getting you summer ready in seconds!

Our new ones and our first ever Merged Bronzers to our line are called (referencing top photo from left to right) Rome, Dubai and Barcelona. Named after some of the hottest cities in the world, they're all different tones to suit different skins. Dubai is the darkest, being a bronze toned gold shade, with Barcelona coming in the lightest at a soft pale brown. Barcelona on darker skintones will make an amazing highlighter too! Rome is a great middle ground for all you olive toned beauties out there (we're jealous) because it's a pale shade with darker veins of bronze running through it.

And just like the others we've revealed, these are also in store now! They're just £4 each so make sure you pop into Superdrug and check them out - we love them! Stay tuned on the blog though because a big post of swatches of all nine of our new products is landing here later on this week.

*New* Bronzers!

If there's one thing we aren't at FashionistA it's slackers! We've been churning out brand new amazing quality products for you all left right and center lately and following on from our last post introducing our brand new Merged Blushers, we've got another surprise in the form of our gorgeous new Bronzers! These are the first Bronzers to be added to our line and we think they're gonna go down a storm!

These three are satin finish and they're called Tokyo, Paris and LA. They apply easily, glide on smoothly and softly and leave your cheeks looking sunkissed. Gorgeous!

The best news is that they're available now from Superdrug and cost just £4 each! Amazing! They pop into our custom palettes so you can build them up into a whole collection if you like! We recommend trying out a palette of some of our new Bronzers and mixing it up with the Merged Blushers too, the combination is beautiful. Swatches coming soon and look out for the last post showing you the shades of our new Merged Bronzers!

Perfectly Nude Nails

Mannequin style nails first exploded onto our nail loving radar a couple of years ago, when the trend was hot hot hot. It was seen widely at LFW for A/W approaching this year so we thought we'd show you our two nude toned polishes for some inspiration. Just because Fashion Week says it's for A/W totally doesn't mean you can't rock it now! Most women opt for nude tones as it's subtle on the fingers but still immaculate and perfectly polished.

The two we have in our collection are called Rhythm and Nude, with the second photograph above being reference for which way round. Rhythm is a dark dusky pink that leans towards being a bit brown in tone. Nude is a soft pink beige that is definitely on the cool pinker side.

Both of them apply incredibly well with just one coat - the swatches on the wheel show them applied with a single coating! Of course they are built up perfectly with two coats, but for a softer look you can apply the sheerer coat of just one. They're really long wearing and chip resistant, but are sealed perfectly with our base and top coat for maximum shine!

We love getting our nails all nude and naked - especially in the Summer as it provides a welcome break from bright pop coloured nails. Embrace the nude now with FashionistA - available in Superdrug for just £5 each!

First look at our new Mascara!

Some exciting news for you all this Sunday as we reveal our brand new Fibre Lash mascara! It's called The Double Collection and it consists of a double ended mascara with two different wands. The first end is a white mascara for a base coat, that helps to lengthen the lashes and coat them for more added drama. The second end is a big dense fibre brush that adds definition, drama and the intense black shade coating. The reason why there's two mascaras is because the difference it makes is huge. By adding the base coat, it helps coat the lashes so when the black layer is added, they're super voluminous and full of length and drama. It's a trick that when done well pays off really well!

When combined together they create the perfect lash! How exciting! It's a welcome addition to our mascara family and we're really excited to reveal it to you! It's in a new slick packaging that helps you easily identify which side is the correct side to use first and it's metallic casing is gorgeous.

We're really proud of our new mascara and we're happy to say that it launched into Superdrug stores last Friday! Yay!

What do you think of our brand new mascara? Will you be heading into Superdrug to pick it up?

Diamonds are forever...

So that's it everyone! Happy Jubilee! We hope you had the most amazing weekend here at FashionistA and enjoyed partying with the Royals for our four day extravaganza! Only in Britain eh.

A huge highlight for us here at FashionistA was watching the Royal Jubilee concert on Monday night - we loved Robbie and Gary, and of course our favourite Jessie J - but the real stars shone in our national pop treasures. Sir Paul McCartney, Sir Tom Jones and Dame Shirley Bassey just to name a few, wow, what a show we were treated to. We've loved the whole red/white/blue patriotic theme this weekend but something Shirley said got us thinking... diamonds really are forever, and no one loves a diamond more than the Royals! (Did you see that great big one the Queen had at the end! corrr!) So we've decided that for the forseeable future in honour of the Queens year, we're going to be rocking as much glitter as possible, and here's our pick of the hottest diamond inspired clothing to get you all inspired and fired up for those Olympic games too!
Look at these amazing glitter kitten heels!! They're a steal at £45 from ASOS.

Ahh we love this cute prom style dress from Topshop - team it with some winged black liner and you'll be the belle of the ball! Topshop for £160.

We're pretty much in love with these glittery hotpants! Brave, but gorgeous. £30 from Topshop!

We love the subtle glitter detail collar on this gorgeous Miss Guided shirt - just £22.99!

And of course, where would any self respecting glittering FashionistA be without her gorgeous blinged up nails? This is Hidden Treasure and you can grab it from Superdrug for just £5!

What do you think of glittering diamond inspired clothing for the Summer party season? We loved dressing in red, white and blue but it's not ideal for the rest of the year - with these bits we can celebrate the Queen in true style! Oooh Ma'am!

NEW! Merged Blushers

There's nothing we love more at FashionistA than adding some new products to our line. Not only does it make us happy, we know it makes you happy too! We've been really busy so far this year making some brand new bronzers and blushers to share with you guys and we thought today we'd pop up a sneaky peek at our brand new blushers! There are three in total, and they're our merged blushers so they have a little shimmer running through them and each one contains a mix of at least two colours.

Our three new ones are called London, New York and Milan and the shades represent the trend setting cities in which they are named after. A coral pink flush for London, a soft but punchy shimmery pink for New York and the vibrant sunshine glamour in a bright pink for Milan. The last photograph shows them all in this order.

So what do you think of our gorgeous new merged blushers? The best news is yet to come - they're already in store now! So head on down to Superdrug and check them out for yourself - we think you'll love them all! If we had to choose we'd pick London, aside from the obvious reasons it's just beautiful and the gorgeous coral/pink mix is so hot for summer!

Stay tuned for more information on our brand new bronzers!
