Spring/Summer is the perfect time to experiment with makeup, the prefect time to add a pop of colour to your look! And what better shade to try then aqua blue or turquoise, the shade that represents the sky and water?
You can wear aqua as you would wear a regular black or brown eye liner, or inside the lower waterline for an interesting accent.
Max Factor Excess Intensity Longwear Eyeliner in Excessive Aqua (review and swatches)
Long-lasting shimmering turquoise. You can get a precise line with this pencil or make it as thick, as you wish.

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…
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 itRead More
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.
I 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 lookRead More
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.
Maybelline Color Tattoo 24HR inRead More
It’s time for February beauty Favourites!
Omorovicza Queen Of Hungary Mist (review)
My face really loves this hydrating spray, it smells amazing, look luxurious and is an instant pick-me-up for the skin.
Estelle & Thild Rose Otto Advanced Age Prevent Facial Oil and Rose Otto Advanced Age Prevent Serum
The review of these Swedish gems is in the process. I have been using both products religiously this month, and am loving the results.
NYX Taupe Blush (review and swatches)
My newest makeup love! I don’t know how I ever lived without it. Have posted a review, comparisons and a photo of how it looks like applied on the skin, so take a look.
