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.
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

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.
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 twoRead More
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.
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 aRead More
Here are three new beauty releases for the cheeks that caught my attention.
Exactly the kind of product we need after winter. It adds colour and luminosity to the skin, according to the brand it has “a the warmth of a bronzer and the soft flush of a blush with a gorgeous, subtle glow.”
Available in six shades: Pastel Pink, Pink, Coral, Cranberry, Tawny and Pastel Peach.
“Lightweight, baked formula contains finely milled, multi-tonal pigments that blend evenly, enhancing individual skin tones, for a truly natural, polished skin finish.”
Comes in six shades:Read More
I am actually surprised that I have so many favourites this month, as beauty wasn’t exactly my priority in January. But I truly loved all the products I am going to mention.
Surprisingly, it was all about the brown tones for me this month. I always wear red or berry, but felt like a wanted a change and be rebellious with the nudes. This probably doesn’t even make sense to some of you, I know.
Rouge Bunny Rouge Sheer Lipstick- Succulence Of Dew in Perfume Of His Gaze - it is described as “sheer tanned nude-beige”, and I totally agree. Never thought that I’d be wearing something like this. But never say never. Plus, it’s only makeup, it is supposed to be fun.
I am sure that you are already bored to death with me talking about this Trish McEvoy’s bronzer, but this is literally the only product I have been using on my cheeks lately (this and NYX Taupe). And Hourglass No. 2 Foundation/Blush brush is my favourite tool for bronzer/blush/healthy glow & colour on my cheeks.
Finally, there is a mascara that I have been using so much that all the words on it on it completely rubbed off – Max Factor Mastepiece Transform High Impact Volumising Mascara. It gives amazing volume, ultra-black colour and instant wow-effect.
