Recently several girlfriends asked me about wearable/”beginners” red. So I thought I’d write about it here, as some of you may be interested in this topic, too.
Althought I personally love matte full-on red, I perfectly understand that not everyone is ready for it. This is why sheer formulas may be a good option to begin with.
I have chosen three that I love. And these all are high-end. Why? Well, if you buy a “cheap” red, you will always find an excuse not to wear it. But if you invest in a luxury lipstick – you’d have to. And, let’s face it, who doesn’t love beautiful things?
Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector 05 Red (review and swatches)
This is theRead More
Last week(s) was very stressful and intense for me, I’ve barely had time for anything (lack of sleep, eating on the go, putting makeup on in a taxi) but I still had to look good. This is why I had to stick to the products that work the best for me, and didn’t have time for any experiments. So here is a selection that I love, that work, and that never let me down.
Makeup wise – my “foundation” of choice was Clarins HydraQuench Tinted Moisturizer which did not enhance any dry patches, and made my skin look glowing. It also helped to even out the skin tone, as I don’t have any major skin problems – this was enough. Bobbi Brown’s Natural Brow Shaper & Hair Touch Up in Slate is also a real gem, it tints the brows and holds them in place. I am addicted to this product , will write a detailed review soon.
Lip colour is the only thing that I’ve been changing, but most of the times that was all about the new Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm Perfectors; 03 My Pink created aRead More
These are basically rich and creamy balms that moisturize the lips and give a beautiful tint. I’d say that they give more colour than the original lip perfectors.
I personally really love the packaging and the design. You can definitely tell that it’s a high-end lip balm.
I was sent the shades:
01 Rose, It is the same shade as the first original Lip Perfector that I’ve bought several years ago. A pretty every day pink. You can never go wrong with it.
03 My Pink which is just like Clarins Lip Balm Crayon reacts with theRead More
I am actually surprised that I have so many favourites this month, as beauty wasn’t exactly my priority in January. But I truly loved all the products I am going to mention.
Surprisingly, it was all about the brown tones for me this month. I always wear red or berry, but felt like a wanted a change and be rebellious with the nudes. This probably doesn’t even make sense to some of you, I know.
Rouge Bunny Rouge Sheer Lipstick- Succulence Of Dew in Perfume Of His Gaze - it is described as “sheer tanned nude-beige”, and I totally agree. Never thought that I’d be wearing something like this. But never say never. Plus, it’s only makeup, it is supposed to be fun.
I am sure that you are already bored to death with me talking about this Trish McEvoy’s bronzer, but this is literally the only product I have been using on my cheeks lately (this and NYX Taupe). And Hourglass No. 2 Foundation/Blush brush is my favourite tool for bronzer/blush/healthy glow & colour on my cheeks.
Finally, there is a mascara that I have been using so much that all the words on it on it completely rubbed off – Max Factor Mastepiece Transform High Impact Volumising Mascara. It gives amazing volume, ultra-black colour and instant wow-effect.
