Unfortunately, drugstore mascaras don’t do that much for me, with the exception from Max Factor. I remember how I would save for my favourite 2000 Calories ages ago. And I still love good ol’ Max Factor when it come to mascaras. I think they do amazing ones.
This is why I was excited to try their newest offering – Excess Volume Extreme Impact Mascara (£12.99)
First of all, it gives great volume. It has the same type of brush, as the famous False Lash Effect mascara, thick plastic with small bristles. My lashes are thin and short, and I can definitely tell the difference.
But that is not all! The most exciting part is the ultra black lacquer on the other side. From my experienceRead More
Nude lip products aren’t something that I get excited about, but the new Max Factor Colour Elixir Gloss collection called Nude Pomade are pretty awesome.
This limited edition release was created by an amazing MUA Caroline Barnes, and they actually are a homage to Mr Max’s first ever lip gloss, Lip Pomade, which he created in 1920′s.
There are four shades, and here is Caroline’s inspiration behind each one, and also her tips. Plus my comments.
10 Pristine Nude
Caroline: “This is an ultimate nude lip colour and it should be part of every woman’s make-up bag. Suiting all skin tones, it’s my make-up staple. It will perk up your look and create a natural, healthy look when you’re feeling lacklustre.”
Actually, this lip gloss is now a part of my makeup bag, too. It is sheer enough so that my natural lip colour shows through plus it is not a concealer like “dead looking” dated nude. It has pretty mauve/pink undertones, and should look amazing on a lot of women. My personal favourite.
15 Radiant Rose
Caroline: “This shade conveys an expensive lips – with accents of champagne it’s the most subtle gloss in my collection. It will have an incredible lip shaping appearance with its gold flecks and will suit all skin tones.”
This is a beautiful warm-toned shimmering lip gloss, which I personally love paired with matte eye makeup and a liner, it adds just the right amount of glow, plus it makes theRead More
Unlike my latest beauty purchases, this time it’s a bit more fun. Unfortunately, I don’t remember any prices since I’ve been getting a lot of products on that day, but at least, you can see what I’ve got.
1. Toni & Guy Cleanse dry shampoo. I’ve finished my Klorane shampoo which was amazing, by the way, so thought I’d pick this one up to try.
2. Aussie Aussome Volume Shampoo. Believe it or not, but I have never tried Aussie products, so decided to give it a go.
3. Rimmel Salon Pro Kate nail polish in 703 Rock ‘n Roll. I wanted to get this for a long time for so many reasons. In fact, I am wearing it,Read More
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.
