Besides the pretty pastel and girly balm-like lipsticks which are always out for Spring, I have notice one more trend, and that is lacquers. I have chosen 5 different brands just to give you a taste of what is new, lip wise, for SS19.
I am a huge fan of Clarins lip products so would expect Rouge Lacquer to be incredible. The brand promise wet like vinyl finish, hydration and nourishment and easy application, among other things. There are 7 shades to choose from. Shown above is 744 Plum.
Full coverage, highly pigmented, soft matte formula which should be comfortable and long-lasting on the lips. If you want to treat yourself – this is the way to go. There are 10 shades to choose from; shown is
I have to say that I am still loving all of my favourites from April but here are some more products that I would like to add. Four makeup items and three beauty.
I did not expect this first product to make it to my favourites, as I have been neglecting all my bronzers for some time now, and I have tonnes. But I really like this new Clarins bronzer from their summer collection. It is called Bronzing & Blush Compact (full review coming up soon), as it adds warmth and that subtle sun-kissed effect to the face; you can use each shade separately or mix them all together. The other day when I was wearing it one of my best male friends told me that whatever I have on my cheeks – it looks amazing, and makes me look beautiful, and it was this bronzer. Yes, some of my poor male friends know things like that.
Speaking of glow, I have started
piling on using my Mary Lou Manizer from theBalm again. It gives the most gorgeous sheen to the face, and makes me look decent even when I barely sleep due to all the deadlines. Get it! Seriously, if you love a good highlighter, you need this in your life.
I have been using Max Factor Voluptuous False Lash Effect Mascara all
I was away for ten days visiting my family and friends and I did not use Internet or my phone 95% of the time. It was the best decision ever, as I could truly enjoy the holidays and now I am back to work/blog/life well rested and motivated.
I was catching up on some blogs I follow and loved reading “The Best of 2012” features, I should definitely post it myself. But in the meanwhile, here are the makeup products I had with me, and some of them are my all time favourites actually.
Omorovicza Complexion Perfector BB SPF 20 which I took in a small pot helped my skin to look flawless, I’ve also had my trusted Touche Eclat by YSL with me, as well, as Jouer’s Age Repairing Concealer in 3 Cameo.
Sienna X’s Cream To Powder Bronzer & Illuminator is a product I haven’t featured before but I do like it a lot and will definitely post about it soon.
First of all, I had my Benefit’s eye brow pencil, as I am never without it. Anastasia’s Genius Top Coat and three of my all time favourite eye shadows: Rouge Bunny Rouge Long Lasting Eye Shadow in Bejewelled Skylark, Daniel Sandler Polychromatic Eyeshadow in Lava and
Here is, as promised, a post about Clarins’ Rouge Prodige Lipstick in Rosy Coral which I have featured in the Peach and Coral makeup.
I actually already did a detailed review about Rouge Prodige lipsticks which you can read here. So this time I want to concentrate on the colour more.
According to Clarins, Rosy Coral is
August is the month when I always go on a holiday, and now I am back and
not ready to get back to life. This year I was very proud of myself for not over-packing or taking any extra products.
Here is the makeup I had with me for two weeks, and I could actually take even less lip products, everything else I have used religiously. If I had to pick 3 products I’ve used/loved the most that would be:
YSL Faux Cils Mascara – it is absolutely incredible, the best mascara ever.
Revlon Colorstay Liquid Eye Pen – most of the days I love my cat eye, and this happen to be the liner I am using now, I really love the shape of the nib which is incredibly easy to use.
Clarins Blush & Bronzing Compact (review and swatches) it is
