MakeUp4All AUTUMN 2011 Online Beauty Magazine

I know that a lot of people were  waiting for the review of Clarins Ombre Matte Eye Shadows, but I wanted to take my time, and test them out properly. And, finally, I am ready to share my impression.

This Autumn the brand released 6 shades of  what they describe as “new generation cream to powder eye shadows”:01 Nude Beige, 02 Nude Pink, 03 Taupe,  04 Rosewood, 05 Sparkle Grey and 06 Earth.

Clarins Ombre Matte Eye Shadows Review and Swatches Nude Pink RosewoodThese come with a signature red Clarins packaging, in a cute lightweight plastic jar with a golden lid on top.  Despite the fact that it is not glass, the products still looks high-end.

So what about the formula?

I’d describe it as a very well pressed creamy powder. The finish is matte (at least in the shades that I have), so they look very natural on the eye lids.

I have already posted about some of the amazing lip products that are coming out for AW (part 2 on the way, so stay tuned). And here is a sneak preview of the new palettes that will be released for holidays.

Holiday 2014 makeup eye shadows palettes Lorac Mega Pro, Dior and Guerlain I am personally very excited about the LORAC Mega PRO palette with 24 matte and shimmer shades. It will be out on the 7th October and will retail for $59 from Ulta and LORAC.

It’s been forever since I’ve bought a big palette, so maybe it’s time to do it! [I have stopped buying them since I never use those anyway, and they just gather dust and I've been trying to de-clutter my place, too. And some palettes are bulky, and do take a lot of space]. Maybe this palette will change the situation.

Now, what about the other items?

Bobbi Brown Makeup Collection for Holiday 2014

Every year I say that holiday beauty launches are the best. Why?  You can get  value sets from your favourite brands, and save some money; or you can get a kit from a brand that you’ve always wanted to try, and that will give you an idea about the quality and the performance.

What else? You can buy a set of glosses/liners/nail polishes, leave some shades for yourself, and give others to your girlfriends.

You just can’t go wrong! And here is a preview of the Bobbi Brown’s beauty offerings for this Christmas.

September 2014 Beauty Favourites

This month I don’t have that many favourites but I absolutely adore all the products that I’ve included…

September 2014 beauty favourites makeup4all clarins loreal AlgenistI want to start with a product that I wear pretty much daily - Clarins Be Long Mascara (review), this is one of the best mascaras I have ever used. You can get a subtle look, with defined long lashes, but you can  also build it up for an intense look, is  really works! Not to mention that the formula makes the lashes grow longer with time. I have already recommended Be Long to some of my friends, you would recommend it to you, too.

The other two makeup products are for lips. One is for a subtle effect, and the other one is a bolder option.

L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Extraordinaire in 100 Mezzo Pink (review and lip swatches) is a gorgeous baby pink shade, it feels moisturizing and hydrating on the lips, and it smells delicious. My makeup

Gucci Beauty Line Is Here: Preview of All Products

The most exciting new beauty launch of 2014? Definitely Gucci Beauty! Great news – it is already available from Saks and Neiman Marcus.

I was excited and a bit sceptical at the same time, the packaging looked tacky on the first leaked promos. Well, it looks a lot better on the official promos. Yes, it is all about logos, but that is  what we know Gucci for, after all.
