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
I was trying all that bronzer/golden eye shadow/nude lips look for a while but I came back to what I love and to what works for me – red and berry.
After a week of being sick at home, I’ve decided to go and get some new makeup products, as a little pick-me-up treat and since I haven’t got anything new in forever (and I mean colour & cosmetics, not beauty products in general). And I’ve decided to get some drugstore products I’ve been meaning to pick up for some time now.
First of all, Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick (you can get it on-line for £8.99 from Feel Unique).
Yes, just when their Aqua Laque is the new big thing – I’ve finally got the original version. And I really, really love it. It feels weightless on the lips and gives a gorgeous matte wash of colour. I’ve chosen the shade 01 personne ne rouge which is a beautiful red. Stay tuned for a detailed review and lip swatches.
Maybelline ColorDrama Intense Velvet Lip Pencil in 310 Berry Much.
Another product I’ve been meaning to get for a while but never did since I have so many berry and plum lipsticks in myRead More
Can you believe that it is MAY already? Where did 2015 go? Maybe that is because I am crazy busy these days that I don’t notice anything around me, who knows…
But back to April Beauty Favourites. I did not have that many makeup favourites, and did not want to mention the same products over, and over again – so here are 3 hero products that I have been using every single day when I did my makeup ( I was sick for a week in April which was horrible), and some new beauty loves…

The three makeup heroes I’ve mentioned are: Rouge Bunny Rouge Raven Glaze Lacquer Liner (review and swatches), Max Factor Glamour Extensions 3-in-1 Volumising Mascara (review), Bobbi Brown Natural Brow Shaper & Hair Touch Up in Slate (review). I haven’t been experimenting with eye makeup that much this month, and these are the products that just work. Eye brow gel to tint my eye brows and keep them in place, ultra black liner for that feline flick and mascara for thick and long lashes.
There are also three products that I’ve mentioned in my Spring Beauty Guide: Balance Me Radiance Rose Face Oil and Aromatherapy Associates Hydrating Rose Radiance Skin Serum for thatRead More
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.
I have been using it since February, and I want to share my impression finally…
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.

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.
