Max Factor have been killing it with their mascaras lately. Their Masterpiece Transform High Impact Volumising Mascara (review here) was one of the best ones I have ever tried, no wonder it won so many awards.

The brand came out with a new one Glamour Extensions 3-in-1 Volumising Mascara  recently which I have posted on Instagram about  a month ago and which you could see in this post.

I have been using it since February, and I want to share my impression finally…

Max Factor Glamour Extensions 3-in-1 Mascara Review

Apparently this mascara contains lash extending carbon-black fibres for thicker, longer and more intense lashes.

And that is how it works –  Glamour Extensions gives amazing volume, great length as the short bristles allow to coat each lash;  and don’t forget the ultra black intense colour. I also love how long-lasting it is! I have sensitive eyes that are often watering, so it is important that it doesn’t smudge or run. Big thumbs up for such an amazing formula.

March 2015 Beauty Favourites

It’s time for March favourites! Can you believe that 1/3 of Spring is already behind?

Let’s start with makeup, this month I have a good mix of products price-wise, from affordable Rimmel and Max Factor, to a high-end Rouge Bunny Rouge and uber luxurious Omorovicza.

Bobbi Brown Natural Brow Shaper & Hair Touch Up in Slate (review)

This is still the only brow product that I use on a daily basis. It makes the brows look fuller, tints them and holds them in place. This is love.

Omorovicza Complexion Perfector BB SPF 20 (review and swatches)

This month I have re-discovered my love for this base. It is like a good looking skin in a bottle. The skin is glowing and radiant, and the  tone is evened out and perfected.  I have written a very detailed review in the past, so you are welcome to take a look.

Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in Alluring Rose (review and face swatches)

This is still my favourite blusher, just like last month. Alluring Rose is a gorgeous warm nude with a spot-on radiance effect. It lifts the face instantly, I’d recommend these blushes to everyone.

I am a huge fan of Max Factor’s Miracle Touch Creamy Blush, so I was very excited about the launch of their new blushers – Creme Puff. There are six shades and I was sent three of them (and a new mascara).

Let’s take a look.

Max Factor Creme Puff Blushes Review  and Swatches

These are multi-tonal blushes which, when the shades are mixed together, give you a gorgeous shade.

The colours that I have are:

  •  Lovely Pink, Use this shade for a hint of pink on fair skin
  • Alluring Rose, A shade with hints of gold colour; beautiful on warmer or tanned skin
  • Gorgeous Berries,  Provides a good pop of colour so works really well on darker skin tones

February 2015 Beauty Favourites

Makeup wise, it was pretty much all the same in February, and you can read about all the products here.  There is also something very different from  me this month – I’ve been loving nude lipsticks (which is  a complete shock for me), and I will write a feature about it soon.

February 2015 Beauty Favourites Balance me, Illamasqua, Yves Rocher, L'Occitane, Max Factor

There are only two other makeup products that I want to mention:

Illamasqua’s Nail Varnish in Nomad. I wore in for the whole last week of the month, and this gorgeous jade set me in the mood for Spring.  Not too pastel but not too bright, it is just perfect.

Max Factor’s  Creme Puff Blush in 25 Alluring Rose. This is a shade created for medium  and dark skin  tones, so on me it looks like a bronzer. It blends out beautifully and gives a gorgeous glow.  Look out for the feature about these new blushes this week.

As for the beauty products – I was very stressed and completely out of time  in February, so shower time was the ultimate luxury and “me” time when I could just think and reflect on what was going on. I have tonnes of shower products in my tiny bathroom, and have been loving all of them, but two

Makeup Products That Never Let Me Down

Last week(s) was very stressful and intense for me, I’ve barely had time for anything (lack of sleep, eating on the go, putting makeup on in a taxi) but I still had to look good. This is why I had to stick to the products that work the best for me, and didn’t have time for any experiments. So here is a selection  that I love, that work, and that never let me down.

As I’ve mentioned on Twitter , I’ve re-discovered my love for Molecule 01. And a lot of people have been asking me about the perfume’s name. So it is everything it is promised to be!

Makeup wise – my “foundation” of choice was Clarins HydraQuench Tinted Moisturizer which did not enhance any dry patches, and made my skin look glowing. It also helped to even out the skin tone, as I don’t have any major skin problems – this was enough.  Bobbi Brown’s Natural Brow Shaper & Hair Touch Up in Slate is also a real gem, it tints the brows and holds them in place. I am addicted to this product , will write a detailed review soon.

Lip colour is the only thing that I’ve been changing, but most of the times that was all about the new Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm Perfectors; 03 My Pink created a
