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
I have promised a review of Clarins Extra-Comfort Cleansing Cream for Dry and Sensitive Skin for some time already, so here it is finally.
I have dry and sensitive skin, so I want my cleanser to be gentle, yet effective, and this one is exactly that!
This is a cream that you massage in with lifting motions into the skin and then wash off with warm water. So not only you cleanse your face but also massage it, and it’s a huge benefit for the skin, obviously. There is video on a Clarins website, by the way, on how to do it!
This cleanser with Shea Butter, Jojoba Oil and Palm Oil leaves my skin properly clean, smooth and soft. It does not feel dried out, irritated or tight at all! Unfortunately, a lot of cleansers do that…
It is a
I know that a lot of readers come to Makeup4all for all things Clarins, so here, as promised, is my guide to Clarins toners. I did a detailed review about each product, so this post will be a brief summery, you can read all the details by clicking the links.
Before we start, I’d like to mention that I have very dry and sensitive skin, and my age group is 26-30.
One-Step Facial Cleanser with Orange Extract (review)
Such an amazing orange scented product which gently cleanses the skin, leaves is super smooth, soft and glowing. A must have here. Will re-purchase in the future. Can I say once again that I love it?!
Clarins Water Comfort One-Step Cleanser with Peach Essential Water (review)
This is a nice product which
Finally I am writing about my 2013 favouries. You can read about my 2012 makeup favourites here.
But there are quite a few products that I want to mention, so I’ve decided to divide it into several posts, not to make it too long.
So the first part is about makeup products for the face. And I did not want to include a product in each category, but wanted to mention the products that stood out to me.
The last thing that I have to mention – I have dry sensitive skin, and the age group is 25-30.
Clarins BB Skin Perfecting Cream SPF 25 (review)
This was the BB cream of the year for me. The base that I wore almost all the summer, it was a great match for my tanned skin. It feels light on the skin and gives a medium coverage, plus smells really nice.
Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer (review)
At first I wasn’t a huge fan of this product, but now I use it whenever my skin needs some glow and luminosity, and there is no need for the highlighter. It gives a very good coverage for a TM, I personally don’t even need a concealer.
BECCA Luminous Skin Colour Ultra-Sheer Foundation SPF 25+ (review)
This is a discovery of the year. This foundation gives a very light coverage and has an almost fluid texture, so suitable for the days when your skin looks nice but you want to even out the complexion.
Rouge Bunny Rouge Tinted Moisturiser Sketches on Water (review)
If I could keep only one “base” – this would be it. It’s my
Recently I’ve shared my top 5 beauty tips about beach holidays, and I have actually included a photo of sun protection and after sun beauty products that I took with me. So, I thought, I’d share about the sun protection ones first.
I already did a post about my favourite product for face, which is from Avene here, so this time it will be about the body cream.
And it is Clarins Sun Care Soothing Cream Moderate Protection UVB 20 which is all kinds of awesome. I used to take several sun protection body products with different SPF and different formulas (I love oils), but now I just can’t be bothered.
As for this Clarins cream – it is my favourite, as you’ve already guessed. It doesn’t feel greasy or oily but, at the same time, it is
