It was quite a long time since I did my Current Top 5 Affordable Makeup Products, back in March to be precise. So, I think, it’s time for an updated version.
L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Extraordinaire in 100 Mezzo Pink (review and lip swatches)
I am sure that it’s not a surprise that I’ve included this lip product, it is now my handbag staple, gorgeous baby pink everyday colour, beautiful moisturizing and long-lasting formula. Nice applicator and delicious scent. I highly recommend.
Ok, I know this is cheating because I have two shades but I love them both equally. Dark red 08 and dusky rose 80, they glide-on like a dream, despite the matte long -lasting formula. Can be used on their own all over the lips, or to cheat a fuller lip, with lipstick or gloss on top.
Inglot Eye Shadows AMC Shine 37 (review and swatches)
I have been very good with my beauty purchases lately, meaning that I’ve been buying only the products that I really want/need (I do have a wish list, and will probably share soon).
Instead, I have been investing in different beauty procedures and accessories & apparel/shoes. This week I have picked only two products, and I am very happy with both.
I went to Lush to pick a big bottle of Rose Jam shower gel which I adore (will get it later this week though), but got this amazing soap. Not only it
It seems like it’s now a tradition to show you what beauty and makeup products I take with me when I am away, just like in this post. So, since I am currently visiting my family, here is a quick update on what products I took with me.
To tell the truth, I barely wear any makeup these days but I did take quite a few products (and a lot of brushes) since people always ask me for a makeover.
I am very happy with the skincare that I’ve packed with me, including a lot of mini bottles which I am currently testing. I only wish I took more than three nail polishes, as my 5-years-old-cousin loves to borrow them 🙂
Speaking of my cousin, she insisted on inspecting my “treasures” as she described my makeup bag… When she saw the red lipstick I had, she told me that she had to put it on me, since it’d make me look gorgeous. What can I say? She does know beauty.
Since we are talking about new lip launches today, I thought I’d share about my current top 5 lipsticks in different colour families, from berry to pink; and from red to coral.
I have stupidly forgot to include my favourite current red in the photo (but you can see it here), which is Daniel Sandler’s Red Carpet Red (get it here for £13.25). The shade lives up to the name, whenever I wear it I get a lot of compliments, even from people that don’t like red lips in general. Yes, really. I think this is the best Daniel’s lip product, and I do have quite a few.
What about other four?
Dior Addict 561 Baby Rose Lipstick (review and lip swatches)
I don’t really do nude, so this is my perfect everyday shade, a sheer baby pink with a beautiful delicate shimmer. Don’t worry, it’s nothing like those pearly shades from the past. I’ve been wearing it a lot lately, looks like I will have to re-purchase it soon.
Where to buy: from Selfridges for £24.
Givenchy Le Rouge Lipstick 302 Hibiscus Exclusif (review and lip swatches)
You all know my
When you have a lot of makeup products – you sometimes forget that you have a certain item in your collection. This is why I love to look through the things that I have from time to time.
Recently I have re-discovered (& love d using) the following products:
BECCA Eye Tint in Pewter (review and swatches)
I don’t know why I’ve stopped using this, it is just SO good! You can apply a very thin and sheer layer, or build up the intensity to a dark and deep shade. The staying power is amazing, on my lids it lasts for the whole day, without primer, without fading or creasing. I need other shades.
Inglot Lipstick in 401 (review)
Out of all the orange and coral lipsticks (and glosses) that I have – this one suits me the best. I don’t like such shades on me that much, but Inglot’s 401 lipstick is simply gorgeous, the colour is
