MakeUp4All AUTUMN 2011 Online Beauty Magazine

Since my post about pink blushers got so many views, I’ve decided to write one about reddish ones, too. Do let me know, if you’d like me to choose 5 corals/peaches and berries/plums…

Red(ish) Blushers Hourglass, Clarins, Benefit, Max Factor and MeMeMe

So here is what I’ve picked:

Hourglass Aura Cheek Tint in Flush (review and swatches)

I think that Flush is a perfect name for this sheer water-based blusher, it gives the most natural and beautiful effect.  Cheek Tint is easy to blend, plus it has a nice staying power.

Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush in 18 Soft Cardinal (review and swatches)

This is probably my personal favourite! It is a gorgeous cream blusher with “wet & glossy” texture, it doesn’t enhance any dry patches and looks like a second skin, I use it

Being a fan of Max Factor I was excited at the opportunity to try their new  Excess Intensity Longwear Liners. After using them for over a month now, I am happy to share my opinion, and show you the swatches of all six shades.

They all come in a nice black tube packaging, and a lid is actually matching the shade of the pencil, which is very handy.  I also like the fact that you don’t need to sharpen these, you just need to twist to get more product out.

As you can see from the photo, the liner are relatively slim, so you can get a precise line, if you wish.

Max Factor Excess Intensity Longwear Eyeliner Review and Swatches of All Shades 3I personally really loved the formula, the pencils are soft and smooth, they don’t drag the skin and glide on easily. The lasting power is also pretty impressive, but I  don’t have oily lids, and the the products usually do stay on me rather well in general.

Besides the staying power, I love the colours, the products live up to their name - Excess Intensity, the shades are very pigmented and look

I love my luxury beauty products!  I perfectly understand,  that is not a necessity but an indulgent, and also I  get that not everyone wants to spend that much on a makeup product. In fact, I often get asked about the affordable products that I would recommend.

So I’ve decided to feature five products that I’ve been really loving lately. I could, of course, add more, but these are the best for me, now.

Max Factor Excess Volume Extreme Impact Mascara (review)

I use  this mascara daily now! It is ultra black and glossy and gives great volumizing effect, exactly what I love. For me it’s “go big, or go home” when it comes to mascara.

NYX Taupe Blush (review and swatches)

Another product that I use almost daily. It blends nicely into the skin and gives a natural sculpting effect, nothing muddy or orange.

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)

Max Factor Excess Volume Extreme Impact Mascara ReviewI think this is easily one of the best mascaras I have ever used. In fact, I think it is revolutionary! What is so special about it, you may ask?

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 experience
