Did you know that Benefit, the brand that I actually love a lot, is revamping the colour line?
They are bringing out new shades of powder and cream eye shadow in the new design.
And since their Creaseless Cream Shadows are among my favourites, I will start with those. They are already out in the US for $20 and will be available here for £15.50/€22.50 from May.
Benefit left three best selling shades: R.S.V.P, Skinny Jeans and Birthday Suit. And here is actually my review of RSVP, old version.
It’s the same situation, price and availability wise with the brand’s new Longwear Powder Shadows. Only this time all the shades are new. Kiss Me, I’m Tipsy is such a Bene-style name and the colour should be beautiful…
As for lips, there areRead More
Today I opted for a very simple and minimal makeup, both in terms of colours and the quantity of products. Today it’s all about work and I am not going out anywhere afterwards, so I was not in the mood for any experiments, and , quite frankly, did not have time.
I’ve used Rouge Bunny Rouge Home Time Defying Foundation Skin Sanctuary which I promise to review soon. I totally forgot that I had the samples of it, the post is already in the process. I then added some Benefit’s Dandelion to brighten up the complexion and BECCA’s Beach Tint in Raspberry as a pop of colour on the cheeks and on top of the lip balm.
I have used Benefit’s powder eye shadows in Leggy and Dandy Brandy which are very soft and smooth, and blend beautifully. Lighter shade all over the lead and darker shade for definition. I have also lined the eyes with a black (and not brown, shocker!) Clarins Crayon Khol, smudged itRead More
I have been shopping my stash lately, re-discovering a lot of amazing products that I have and have been experimenting with my makeup quite a lot, too.
I usually go for berry or cool toned shades but lately I have been going for coral/orange quite a lot actually.
Here are the products that I have used today…
I have started with a foundation that is a bit darker and warmer than my skin tone but still looks natural and gives a beautiful glowing finish - Daniel Sandler’s Invisible Radiance Foundation and Concealer in Beige.
The main thing about this look was the vibrant coral blush, Benefit ChaCha Tint which instantly brightened up everything. And since I kept the rest of makeup pretty much neutral – it was a great pop of colour.
I have used my trustedRead More
Before I start, I have to say that it was very hard to narrow my list of favourite makeup products of 2012 but I’ve tried my best.
Let’s take a look at what I’ve chosen…
Benefit Erase Paste
I don’t really use concealer on a daily basis, unless I have a new, really bad spot, I just use Touche Eclat under my eyes and that’s all. But if I had to choose my favourite “concealer” type of product – that would be this one. It is a creamy peach corrector which works great for the dark under eyes circles. I had a review of it but because of some tech problems, it was deleted, need to re-write it soon.
Omorovicza Complexion Perfector BB SPF 20
One of my favourite face products you can read the details why here. If you can afford it, I would definitely recommend.
Rouge Bunny Rouge Tinted Moisturiser Sketches on Water
This gives a very natural finish and light coverage and you can’t see it on the face, at all! Miracle for dry skin in cold weather, as it doesn’t enhance any dry patches. See all the shade available here.
Daniel Sandler Invisible Radiance Foundation and Concealer
It is a very nice foundation that gives a dewy finish so works great for my dry skin. The shade Porcelain is a great fit for fair skin and works for me in AW, in SS, I use the second lightest shade – Beige. Plus it comes with concealer which is a great deal for the price. Want to know more?
BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl
This product probably doesn’t even need an introduction. It’s the best highlighter out there, it gives a very natural and beautiful effect.
Wow, I was able to choose only three blushers, although I was very tempted to add more of them.
BECCA Cream Blush in Amaryllis
My favourite blush for AW months, perfect cool toned and natural looking, gives a niceRead More
