Face of May #4 'Manhattan and Marcel Ostertag'

by 24.5.13

Hi Sweets,

Manhattan has collaborated with the German fashion Designer Marcel Ostertag and have come up with a lovely, colorful collection. Last year in July, I saw one of his fashion shows and was really impressed. I picked up one eyeshadow palette from the collection which consists out of 4 different eyeshadow palettes and 6 nail polishes. 

'Girl with a Rose' is a gorgeous eyeshadow palette which only costs €5. The packaging is lovely and super light weight. It is easy to travel with. The eyeshadows are pigmented, but have little fall out when applying them. If you are looking for an affordable dupe for Estee Lauder's 'Raizins' eyeshadow duo, you might like this palette. It is not an exact dupe, but comes close enough.

The collection will still be available for about 4 months in German drugstores.

  • Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum 51
  • Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer 52
  • Marcel Ostertag for Manhattan 'Girl with a Rose' eyeshadow palette
  • Manhattan Eyemazing eyeliner
  • Catrice eyebrow pencil 010
  • Catrice Love and Peach blush
  • Estee Lauder Signature Lipstick 14 Rich Rose
  • Maybelline the Rocket mascara

Did anyone of you pick up something from this collection?

  1. Colours look really yummy but there's no online shop as far as I see. *sigh* No such luck, I've been wondering about Manhattan but they don2t sell it here. I hope Rossmann will bring it here to Turkey, it's the only decent drugstore. :/

    And I love the rest of the make up too, though I'm a more orange-red lipstick user, I might have fallen in love with this rose shade! XD

    And I'm not sure if it's the light but I love your hair here! <3

  8. H i Simone!! I really love your make up!! You are very beautiful! Do you still have your Youtube chanel?

  9. This is definitely my favourite Face of May since the first version you posted. Those colors look perfect on you. Sometimes one can obtain great results even with cheaper products; the price doesn't always make the quality of a product, so it seems :)
    Too bad that it's available only in German drugstores. But, after all, Germany is not that far from here.
    Great inspiration as usual, anyway :)

    Take care over there!
