This set contains three different textures and three different shades.

The shades are:

5 Weekdays – 5 Lipsticks

My personal lipstick  drawer is getting out of control. But I keep using the same products over, and over again. So last week I’ve decided to plan my “weekday lipstick wardrobe” in advance. Here are the five products I’ve chosen:

5 Weekdays - 5 Lipsticks BECCA, Hourglass, Rouge Bunny Rouge, Clarins, Elis Faas

BECCA Ultimate Matte Lip Colour in Eloise (review and lip swatches)

This is the lightest shade of all and the only matte formula from the selection. Eloise is a beautiful baby pink that suits any look, just make sure that your lips are in a great condition, as otherwise it may enhance the dry patches.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Sheer Lipstick Succulence of Dew in Murmurings (review and swatches)

I have been loving this lipstick recently,  it feels extremely comfortable on the lips, hydrating and moisturizing. Plus it gives

Make Up Not War Campaign by Ellis Faas

I  like the latest campaign  of Ellis Faas which is called Make Up Not War so I thought I’d share with you.

Basically it is a program to help the organization which is called War Child, whose goal is the empowerment of children in and from war-affected areas. All you have to do – is to bring the empty pens of Ellis Faas products (which are  just beautiful, aren’t they?).


And what’s next after you bring your empty pens?

“Visual artists (locally and internationally well-known sculptors, fashion designers, photographers, industrial designers…) will then be asked to create a unique work of art using the pens. These works will be exhibited and then auctioned off. The proceeds will go directly to War Child.”

You can find out all the details at the EF website.

What’s Inside My Makeup Bag? Five Products To Create The Look

 

So what’s inside my makeup bag?  If I had a task to create the look with only five products, here is what I’d use. The products that I like are changing constantly so here are those that I am enjoying at the moment.

So the products are:

Daniel Sandler’s Invisible Radiance Foundation and Concealer (review)

Ok, yes, that is a bit cheating as it is one-in-two product… It’s a perfect foundation for my dry skin, it evens out the skin tone and gives the  complexion a dewy glow, exactly what I am looking for!

Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush

I have been loving the shade 09 Soft Murano a lot lately, in fact, I have been using it almost every single day. It is a high quality product for an affordable price plus the colour is very flattering!

Ellis Faas Mascara

This  has been my mascara of choice lately. It gives a nice length, separates the lashes, lasts for the long time, without fading, smudging or flaking. It even survives an

Ochre Eye Shadows: Cream and Powder

Although ochre shades look pretty horrible on my light cool toned complexion, they may be a great find for girls with warmer and deeper skin tones.

It’s also not the easiest shade to come across, so I’d love to show two products, that I would recommend. One is cream and one is powder.   And I am talking about Illamasqua’s Powder Eye Shadow in Vernau and Ellis Faas’ Creamy Eyes in E119 Yellow Ochre.

These are both “Makeup4all approved” products with
