MakeUp4All AUTUMN 2011 Online Beauty Magazine

Recently I fell completely  in love with the new Max Factor’s Shimmer Excess release, so I’ve decided to make a round-up of my favourite affordable cream eye shadows in general.

All of them are definitely worth the attention, and they prove that you don’t need to pay a fortune to get a high quality makeup these days.

I have published detailed reviews about each in the past, so if you want to know more – just click the links, included in this feature.

Affordable Cream Eye Shadows Worth Your Attention Max factor Maybelline LOrealMax Factor Excess Shimmer Eye Shadows (review and swatches)

These have a very light texture, give a beautiful dimensional shimmer and stay on really well. Can be used on their own, or on top of any other product. Gorgeous effect, a must-have.

Color Tattoos did get a lot of hype when they were brought out.  And rightly so! Opaque colours, blendable texture and long-lasting formula. Metallic

My Top 5 Hand Creams

Regular readers will probably know that  a good hand cream is a must have for me. If I could have only one beauty product with  me in my bag, that’d be it (and a lip balm, if I can have two).

I have very dry skin, especially on the hands, and I love to re-apply the cream whenever I need to do it or feel like doing it.

This is why I’ve decided to share my personal top 5 hand creams. Unfortunately, most of them are not cheap but I,  personally, am ready to pay for the quality.

My-Top-5-Hand-Creams-Elemis-Clarins-Yes-Nurse-LOccitane-Aromatherapy-Associates-Makeup4allElemis Pro-Radiance Hand Cream (review)

It is probably my favourite hand cream ever, it instantly makes the skin feel moisturized and smooth, such a relief, especially in the cold(er) months. Plus I could totally tell that my nails were in much better condition when I was using it.

The price is £24 from Feel Unique

It feels like I have been using all those melting cleansers and cleansing balms for ages now. I don’t even remember when I did use something different, and really enjoyed it.

But today I want to tell you about such product, and it’s L’Occitane Brightening Cleansing Foam. I actually got it as a gift with purchase after buying quite a few products from L’Occitane.

L'Occitane Brightening Cleansing Foam Review

And I can’t believe how much I like it. First of all it smells amazing ( is it immortelle floral water that smells so good?), has a very convenient pump which makes it easy to use the product, and has a nice design in general. All these factors make it a pleasure to use such cleanser.

The product feels

Autumn Beauty Empties

I have a new rule when it comes to beauty products, one out – one in (ok, maybe more than one in)! Meaning that I am allowed to buy new beauty products only after I finish some from those that I already have. This is why I get a bit excited when I see a new empty bottle in my bathroom.

I actually have some new items on the way to me, as I type. Can’t wait to try my them all!

I know that it’s not the end of Autumn yet, and there are still three weeks, but I have big doubts that I will finish anything else by the end of the month.

And by the way, here are Summer Empties. I’ve decided to do such features every season.

Autumn beauty empties body creams and bath oils makeup4allI really love  bath oils,  so, since  I’ve used up two of my favourites Lavera Organic Wild Rose Bath Oil  and Cowshed Lazy Cow Soothing Bath & Body Oil  to the very last drop – I’ve already ordered some new ones, which are on their way to me.

Since I have very dry skin, I have to use body moisturizers, sometimes more than once a day, so I go through them quite quickly and this month I have finished the following products:

The Body Shop Pink Grapefruit Body Butter. I think these butters don’t need any introduction and explanation, they are fantastic. This particular one was a present from the boyfriend which made even more special.

  Aromatherapy Assosiates Enrich Body Serum. I never used a body serum before, and was excited to try such kind of product, as it makes sense to use serums/oils on the body before a cream just, as you would on the face. It works! Plus, as

Shower & Bath Products Of The Week. Vol 3

It’s been forever since I did a post about the products in my shower, and I am always curious to see what products other people use, so thought I’d share about mine, too.

Shower & Bath Products Of The Week

1. Clarins Tonic Bath & Shower Concentrate review.

This is an instant pick-me-up product. I love using it in the mornings, or after a workout. I am a big fan of Clarins Tonic range in general, by the way.

2. LUSH Glogg Showerreview.

I really love this spicy and warm fragrance, very  comforting, and is a perfect  scent for a colder weather.

3.  LUSH Happy Hippy Shower Gel -review

It is a nice citrus jelly shower product, with a subtle fragrance, so can be used both in the mornings and
