Only yesterday I’ve mentioned the new Hourlass blushes, and here they are! Already available in the USA for $35.
There are six shades of blushers, and each shade has combines colour and customized lighting effects of Ambient Lighting Powder which, according to the brand, should give you a “seamless, soft-focus, and multidimensional color” as a result.
- DIM INFUSION: A subdued coral blush fused with Dim Light to add warmth.
- DIFFUSED HEAT: A vibrant poppy blush combined with
So here we go…
I will start with the eye brows, and my favorite and most-used product, hands down, was Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Soft Brunette (review). It is a must have for me now, easy to use, long-lasting and great shade.
As for the liners – it was super easy to choose: Rouge Bunny Rouge Raven Glaze Lacquer Liner (review), black and glossy liner is in my personal top favourites ever. When I am in the mood for the cat eye, this is the product I always use. Plus it’s so easy to control.
For an every day use, and I’m sure this is no surprise to you, I always use Lancome’s Le Crayon Khol in Brun Noir (review). I have so many eye pencils, but 99% of the time I use this one. It’s a perfect blackened brown which is very soft and easy to blend, dreamy.
When it comes to mascaras, I have two favourites, as well. One in a classic black shade, which is Chanel Le Volume de Chanel Mascara in 10 Noir (review), easily one of the best mascaras I have ever tried, ultra black and mega volumizing. I have a small sample but am buying a full size.
I also want to mention a colourful mascara - Rouge Bunny Rouge Dramatic Lash Mascara Megaplumes in Oxblood Panache (review). It is an innovative shade which looks beautiful on the lashes, what you is is what you get.
And, of course, I have to mention Anastasia’s Genius Top Coat (review) which changed my beauty life.
There are so many great eye shadows that I couldRead More
I plan on writing a post about my favourite beauty products of 2013 in New Year, but thought that I would still write about my December 2013 favourites, since there are several very nice products I’d like to share about.
Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Soft Brunette (review)
This has been a favourite every single month ever since I’ve got it. It is perfect, I only wish the shade was a bit cooler, but that is fine.
Rouge Bunny Rouge Raven Glaze Lacquer Liner (review)
It seems like I have been using this eye liner almost every day. It is super easy to use and leaves a beautiful glossy black line.
I like this blush combo so much that I even dedicated a post to it! You can get a natural sheer wash of colour with ArtDeco, and add dimension and intensity with tatre. Plus such layering means long-staying power.
Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Lip Gloss in Oyster (review)
I’ve decided to re-discover some old favourites, and this is one of them. I love shimmery cool toned glosses from time to time, and this gloss from Bobbi Brown is uber gougers on the lips, especially paired withRead More
Some of you may remember the feature about the products that I’ve chosen for my Mum, and here are the products that she picked up herself.
The other day my Mum called me to tell that she had some important work events and she needed some makeup products (she doesn’t use makeup on a daily basis). I told her that she could pick anything she wanted from my “collection”.
The thing is that I wasn’t home when she was at my place, and she had to choose everything herself. It was very overwhelming for her so she called me about three or four times, but here are the products that she got.
Hourglass Film Noir mascara, she loved theRead More
Looks like Face Of the Day is now a more, or less regular feature. Maybe at some point, I will get brave enough to include photos of myself, too. Who knows?! But, as for now, here are the products that I’ve used and my opinion about them.
This look was all about my good ol’ blush love – Chanel Orchid Rose. I used to wear it every single day years ago, so I’ve decided to show it some love today.
I’ve started with Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer in Ivory to get a medium coverage and glowing effect, that way I didn’t even need a highlighter. It’s a great “foundation” for dull Autumn days. I’ve added some YSL’s Touche Eclat under the eyes, to brighten up the area and make me look less tired.
As, I’ve already mentioned, I’ve used Chanel Joues Contraste in Orchid Rose blush, which is a pretty warm-toned shade. To add even more warmth to the face – I’ve used YSL’s Terre Saharienne Bronzing Powder in N° 5 Cinnamon Sand.
I wanted this look to be all aboutRead More
