My friends ask me all the time about my favourite high-street makeup products, and I have realized that I haven’t posted a top 5 [affordable makeup products] feature in ages (See previous ones here and here)… So here we go!
Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in Alluring Rose (review and cheek swatches)
If I had to choose only one product out of these – it’d be the blush. Regular readers know how many blushes I own, and the fact that I’ve barely touched any other in months says it all. Creme Puff Blushes are dreamy! Soft and creamy, they blend beautifully and look gorgeous on the skin. I am a convert, and I have recommended it to a lot of my girlfriends, too. There are six shades in the range and I have swatches of three (click the link above). I can’t recommend these enough!
Rimmel Kate Moss Lasting Finish Lipstick in 45 (review and lip swatches)
Being a fan of Rimmel Kate Moss lipsticks I knew I’d love theRead More
It seems like I did not write about red in quite some time… This is why today I want to share about my top 3 red nail polishes. I love red nail polish so much that it is even my Twitter’s header photo.
So what nail polishes are we talking about?
Marc Jacobs Nail Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Lacquer in Lola (swatch)
This is probably my all time favourite red! It is a hot tomato red which is opaque with only one layer, it is glossy and shiny and last pretty well on my nails. Whenever I am in doubt about my manicure shade – I go for this one. And how gorgeous is that bottle?
Revlon Nail Polish in Revlon Red (swatch)
It is aRead More
I can’t believe that it’s July already! June was a very difficult and busy month, and I am very happy that it’s finally over!
I did not really have time or desire, to be honest, to experiment with makeup, but I did wear different lipsticks all the time. Since the drawer with my personal lip products is overflowing – I’ve made an effort to use them more often.
Besides that, makeup-wise this month was all about the red nail polish. And my current favourite one is Max Factor Glossfinity Nail Polish in 85 Cerise (here). It is perfect long-lasting glossy orangey red. I promise to post the swatches soon, as I think everyone should pick up a bottle for summer.
Speaking of Max Factor, I am back to using their award-winning Masterpiece Transform High Impact Volumising Mascara (review). It is phenomenal, and I mean it – it gives show-stopping voluminous ultra-black lashes. Some of my girlfriends are now obsessed, too. And I will be buying a second tube soon.
I’m also back to using BECCA’s Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl (review). The lack ofRead More
This month “Beauty Favourites” will be a little bit different, it will be more about the [makeup] products that I have been using on my face.
May was a very busy month for me, and I was always in a rush, so often I had to do my makeup on the go, so I had a makeup bag with the products always ready. The products have been more or less the same throughout the month, so let’s take a look:
Ella Bache Tomato Vitamin Radiance Cream (as seen on my Instagram)
I’ve bought it after someone highly recommended it to me, and so far I really love it, it really adds glow and radiance to your complexion, even if you had less than 5 hours of sleep.
Peter Thomas Roth CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Complexion Corrector (review)
This is an excellent product which combines great coverage and SPF factor but still feels light on the skin. One of my favourites for summer, the mini size is also great for carrying around.
NYX Blush in Taupe (review)
The photo speaks for itself. I amRead More
I have already reviewed several shades of Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipsticks in the past and you can see the feature here, and this is the latest addition to the range. Meet 725 Simply Nude – smoky eyes best friend.
The lipstick comes in a gold packaging with a colour matching panel on the bottom.
It is a moisturizing and a fool-proof lipstick formula that glides on easily and smoothly. Colour Elixir contains shea, avocado, aloe butters, and anti-oxidant white tea so it feels comfortable and non-drying on the lips.
It is really low-maintenance. I think you could apply it even without mirror, and since it has that “glossy” lightweight texture and finish, it looks good, as it wears off. And this kind of nude would look nice on a lot of skin tones, asRead More
