I can’t live without a good blusher. Well, I guess, I can, but don’t want to. This is why I have already dedicated so many posts on the Spring 2014 blushers: Hourglass, Clinique, byTerry and Make Up For Ever and all the prettiest pink blushers for SS14. But these are not all! In fact, I have already spotted some new additions for us, blusher addicts!
For example, these two killer shades from the Blush King Daniel Sandler – Acid and Trip Watercolour Fluid Blusher Duo (£25, they come as a set).
Wow, Daniel is taking colour to the new level. I imagine you’d need just the tiniest drop of these to give an uber effect! By the way, if you think such
I just love bright pink blush for winter months (and not only) as it really brightens the face and makes you look healthy and pretty!
So I’ve picked up three bright pink blushers that I have to show you.
NYX Cream Blush in Hot Pink , no7 Blooming Pink and Daniel Sandler Hot Pink.
This is the brightest and the most pigmented blush. You really need the tiniest amount of it, I think it would work great on the darker skin tones but you can still wear it if you have fair skin tone like I do. NYX’s Hot Pink is also the warmest of all three. You get a lot of product for the price. Read a more details review here.
No7 Vital Brights Cream Blush in Blooming Pink
This one is a Limited Edition for Spring so you better get it now if you want one. The texture is cream-to-powder and it really reminds me of the amazing YSL blushes. Colour wise, it’s a
You don’t need a special occasion to wear red actually. But if you are too shy (or whatever reason you have) to wear it on a casual day – go ahead and wear it for the Valentine’s.
Speaking of Valentine’s – I used to hate is with a passion, but now I love that day. Why? Because it’s Makeup4all’s Birthday. This Valentine it will turn THREE years old which is unbelievable.
But back to the lipsticks. I have chosen seven variants of the lipstick that are not limited edition.
If I do a red lip – I like a bright deep matte or satin colour, but since not everyone would go for that I’ve also added a sheer version and a lip/cheek stain.
Let’s take a look!
So here are the swatches. I am not going to write anything as you can read all the reviews but clicking the links!

I remember when I have just launched Makeup4all [almost] 8 years ago now, I would check the analytics every day, sometimes even more than once. As Metallica’s song goes “Sad But True”. But lately I check the analytics maybe once a month just to see what features you loved the most to make some conclusions for the upcoming posts.
And here are actually 16 most viewed posts of 2016, and I have included only the features about the products that are still available. I was actually surprised to see the most popular review of 2016 was of a Rouge Bunny Rouge eye pencil. They have recently launched a new shade, so I better write up about it soon.
I was also a bit surprised to see that Max Factor reviews got a ridiculous amount of views, and I really did not expect that. But, to be honest, I am happy, as I have a very special love for Max Factor, not only it was the brand I used to buy as a teenager with my first earned money but also, it was the first brand I have ever worked with for Makeup4all, not to mention the history of the brand, so I am happy that the reviews of their products get so many views, I genuinely love so many of them.

My Mum doesn’t wear makeup. Only lipstick sometimes. But recently she decided to change her hair style, got some new clothes and asked me if I could select some makeup for her.
Wow! I definitely approve 😉
She has light skin, dark hair and eyes, so here are the basics that I have chosen. She doesn’t need that many products simply because she won’t even use them – so, knowing her taste and requirements, here is what I’ve chosen:
I am not yet 100% sure about the foundation that will suit her the best. So far she liked this Bourjois one (shown on the photo). But if you have suggestions for a lady around 50 with dry skin, feel free to share. And thanks to everyone on Twitter for their recommendations!
Blush is a must have in a makeup bag of any girl, in my opinion, as it instantly changes the appearance. This Max Factor blush is one of my personal favourites and I know that it will look great on her, too. Will have to pick up another one soon, as I am giving away my personal one.
