Can you actually believe that it is May, the fifth month of the year?! Time flies, it feels as if it was 1st of January only yesterday. And this month I actually have quite a few products, including some amazing new discoveries.
Max Factor Glossfinity Nail Polish in 85 Cerise (review and swatches)
I have already finished a bottle of this, and am going through my second one, and I am wearing this, as I type, too. Such a gorgeous vibrant, juicy and glossy warm-toned red, it brightens up any look, and (almost) any mood. I am a fan.
For complexion I have been using these two products almost daily: Diorskin Nude Skin-Glowing Make-Up in Ivory (review and face swatches) Rouge Bunny Rouge Naked Disguise Concealer in Castalia.
Dior’s foundation is simply brilliant, it is a re-discovery for me. I like the coverage it gives and the finish, it is not matte but not too dewy either. The shade, Ivory is the lightest in the range, and looks great even on my
currently greenish pale and tired complexion. As for the concealer, I plan on writing a detailed feature about it soon. Surprisingly, I have already used half of the tube, and the love is going strong. It gives just the kind of coverage I like – the formula is not thick but it brightens up the under eye area.
Other products I have been using all the time are Inglot Sculpting HD Powder in 504 (review) which I talk about non-stop, as it is my favourite product for addingRead More
It’s time for March beauty favourites, so here are the products that really stood out for me.
Clarins Gloss Prodige in 09 Water Lily (review and lip swatches)
Back in the days I was singing praises to Gloss Prodige, and recently I’ve re-discovered my love for it. It has a nice scent, brilliant moisturising formula and the most beautiful nudish pink shade. This is probably my favourite lip gloss that I own.
Rouge Bunny Rouge Eye Shadow Palette Raw Garden in Antigo (review and swatches)
I have been using this palette almost every day, and recently wrote a detailed review about it, you get four eye shadows with a unique sateen matt light texture which feels weightless on but still has a nice pigmentation. TheRead More
Clarins Sunshine makeup collection for Summer 2016 is just WOW! So far my favourite summer release I’ve seen.
So why do I say it is so special?
There is a new shade of Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil (£19) in 03 Red Berry. Considering how insanely popular these are – it will be a sell out. Clarins Lip Oil is a non-sticky oil derived from plant extracts:oil, annatto oil and organic jojoba oils.
Waterproof Eyeshadow Shimmering Cream Colour (£18) in 01 Golden Peach, 02 Golden Sand, 03 Silver Taupe and 04 Copper Brown. They are LE!
These should be absolutely amazing, I am hoping for a thin formula which will last even in the heat. Here is an official description: “A soft cream formula which glides easily onto the eyelids. Fine pearl particles provide shimmering colour to subtly illuminate the eyes and bitter orange tree wax helps to create a protective, filmogenic shield against water and humidity to ensure long-lasting waterproof hold.”
Another product which I am personally excited about isRead More
Recently I was talking a lot about lipsticks with some girls I work with, and this inspired me to wear a different shade each day for a month. I wear the same ones over, and over again but considering how many I have it was about time to change my habit. So here are the ones I wore last week…
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Transylvania (lip swatch)
I am obsessed with it, as you may know, I have to stop myself from wearing it every single day. It is the most perfect vampy (Hey, Drac! yes, I absolutely had to do it) shade. Whenever I wear it – I am always asked about it. The formula is not too drying and can be applied evenly. This is the most affordable product from the selection and there are tonnes of other colours in the line.
Illamasqua Intense Lipgloss in Boost (review and lip swatch)
Technically this is not a lipstick but, as the name suggests, it is pretty intense when layered so I’ve included it, too. It smells of sweets, feels moisturising on and is the most unique shade out of these all, a violet with a blue base, so beautiful.
This is my ultimateRead More
Meet the star of Clarins Spring 2016 release, the Natural Glow 5-Colour Shadow Palette (£33). This is a quint which comes in the most beautiful compact, it is a beautiful reflective copper.
Inside you get the following shades:
- a pale pink glitter (my personal favourite), it gives that beautiful multi-dimensional effect; just make sure you are being careful with your application, as it can get all over the face, as all glitter shades.
- the next one is a matte ivory shade which will be a my-skin-by-better for light skin-tones and a highlighter for darker skin tones.
- metallic copper, with peachy pink under tones, the most unique one from the metallic trio.
- metallic bronze, will look flattering on pretty much everyone.
- dark purple, a great shade to use as a liner or for the outer corner.
All five,Read More
