New Beauty Purchases

I was trying all that bronzer/golden eye shadow/nude lips look for a while but I came back to what I love and to what works for me – red and berry.

After a week of being sick at home, I’ve decided to go and get some new makeup products, as  a little pick-me-up treat and since I haven’t got anything new in forever (and I mean colour & cosmetics, not beauty products in general). And I’ve decided to get some drugstore products I’ve been meaning to pick up  for some time now.

Makeup4all New Purchases Max Factor Maybelline and Bourjois

First of all, Bourjois  Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick (you can get it on-line for £8.99 from Feel Unique).

Yes, just when their Aqua Laque  is the new big thing  – I’ve finally got the original version. And I really, really love it.  It feels weightless on the lips and gives a gorgeous matte wash of colour. I’ve chosen the shade 01 personne ne rouge which is a beautiful red. Stay tuned for a detailed review and lip swatches.

The second biggest thing for SS15, after contouring (I have featured tonnes of products here) is definitely eye brows!

And while contouring may not be that necessary – groomed eye brows is a must! Luckily, most brands do at least some kind of products these days, so you get to pick from premium offerings to budget-friendly options.

Here are some of the newest releases:

Spring 2015 Eye Brow Products Lancome, Bobbi Brown, Chantecaille and IllamasquaLancome Sourcil Tint Longwear Eyebrow Pen ($26 from Nordstrom)

A  felt-tip pen with  matte finish. Available in Blond, Brun, Chatain and Noir.

My Current Favourite Lipsticks

Since we are talking about new lip launches today, I thought I’d share about my current top 5 lipsticks in different colour families, from berry to pink; and from red  to coral.

I have stupidly forgot  to include my favourite current red in the photo (but you can see it here), which is Daniel Sandler’s Red Carpet Red (get it here for £13.25). The shade lives up to the name, whenever I wear it I get a lot of compliments, even from people that don’t like red lips in general. Yes, really. I think this is the best Daniel’s lip product, and I do have quite a few.

What about other four?

My Current Favourite Lipsticks Dior Givenchy Inglot BourjoisDior Addict 561  Baby Rose Lipstick (review and lip swatches)

I don’t really do nude, so this is my perfect everyday shade, a sheer baby pink with a beautiful delicate shimmer. Don’t worry, it’s nothing like those pearly shades from the past. I’ve been wearing it a lot lately, looks like I will have to re-purchase it soon.

Where to buy: from Selfridges for £24.

When you have a lot of makeup products –  you sometimes forget  that you have a certain item in your collection. This is why I love to look through the things that I have from time to time.

Recently I have re-discovered (& love d using) the following products:

Shopping The Stash NARS, BECCA, Inglot and Bourjois

 BECCA Eye Tint in  Pewter (review and swatches)

I don’t know why I’ve stopped using this, it is just SO good! You can apply a very thin and sheer layer, or build up the intensity to a dark and deep shade. The staying power is amazing, on my lids it lasts for the whole day, without primer, without fading or creasing.  I need other shades.

Inglot Lipstick in 401 (review)

Out of all the orange and coral lipsticks (and glosses) that I have – this one suits me the best. I don’t like such shades on me that much, but Inglot’s 401 lipstick is simply gorgeous, the colour is

I did write about a lot of Spring 2014 lip products launches but most of them were high end. So what about more affordable options?

Spring 2014 lip products Color Riche Extraordinaire in Rose Melody by L'Oréal Paris  and Bourjois Rouge velvetThere are actually two new releases that caught my attention, and I personally plan to try both.

Color Riche Extraordinaire by L’Oréal Paris ( €14.90) and Rouge Edition Velvet by Bourjois (€13.90).

Bourjois  promise a smooth, non-drying and
