While autumn\winter collections from Guerlain and Lancome are filled with a riot of colors, and Chanel and Dior run mad after metallic-cosmic look
This "innocence" surprised me, because Collistar is associated for me with something bright, shiny and glittering. Let's compare, for example, fall-winter collections from previous years.
Collistar Make-up collection Autumn/Winter 2009: Couture!
orCollistar Carisma Autumn/Winter collection 2011/2012
we will see how different they are from the 2013 collection. In previous ones there are too much colors, they are more like summer or Christmas collection.
But Collistar Milano Collection for winter 2012 by Collistar is more calm
On the promo photo is a charming Dutch model Rihanna ten Haken, which has often been the face of Collistar. For example, autumn-winter collection 2009
The collection consists of eye pencils, eye shadow, powder, blush, concealer, lacquers, lip glosses, lip elixir, and topcoat with an art-pen.
Let's begin with the eye pencils. There are four pencils, and one of them (the upper one) can be used for lips also.
Collistar Professional Eye-Lip Pencil Butter
Professional pencil for lip contour and eyes in interesting color "butter"(probably, the creators wanted to emphasize the lightness and softness of the application, and perhaps color), is ideal for giving freshness and openness of view. This soft pencil contains vitamin E, jojoba oil and cotton oil and it moistures and protects the lips.Of course, it is not new, we can find the analogues of the nude pencils among other brands: Dolce & Gabbana eyeliner # 9 nude, Dior Lipliner # 00 1 - Nude, Chanel № 69 Clair, etc.
Collistar Professional Eye Рencil Smoky Eyes are available in three colors
#303 Forest Green
They are fairly common colors, but the zest is that they are more powdery and matte than the usual professional pencils, completely waterproof, and, the most important, they can be used as well a classic eyeliner, as kajal and shadows, using the applicator.
Convenient, is not it?

Collistar Top Coat Gel & Volume Effect + Art Pen
To get a mirror effect transparency, combine Top Coat Gel & Volume Effect, which Collistar offers again for the fall winter collection 2013, with the two new shades of Art Pen: Gold and Black. These items are perfect to add a playful touch of nail art to the nude look of your nails. And, during the evenings, is perfect for a more daring and seducing look.
Топовое покрытие с гель-эффектом можно использовать соло для зеркального эффекта и можно в качестве финального штриха в маникюре для придания гелевого эффекта.В комплекте также идет карандаш для декора, представлен в черном и золотом оттенках.
Overall, the collection is very modest, gentle and harmonious, especially I liked the make-up on a promo-photo, although many of the products, unfortunately, are not unique. For example, transparent powder can be found among other brands, so this one did not surprise me. Eyeliners, too, are not unique, but nice that they can be used as well an eyeliner as an eyeshadow. But I liked the beige one - very convenient that it can be used for lip contour and for eyes to give the look of freshness. So, it goes definitely in my shopping list.
An interesting and necessary products, to my opinion, are the concealers. Four products in one - it is very easy to use.
A lip elixir ? The word " elixir " is already causing some pleasant feelings and a desire to try.
The fact that the collection has no lipstick but only lip glosses surprised me. But I came to the conclusion that it's part of idea. The color are so soft and natural and are similar to the lips' natural color.
The art pen does not fit into the overall concept of nude look, but I like it and as soon as possible I will buy it.
