Recently I fell completely in love with the new Max Factor’s Shimmer Excess release, so I’ve decided to make a round-up of my favourite affordable cream eye shadows in general.
All of them are definitely worth the attention, and they prove that you don’t need to pay a fortune to get a high quality makeup these days.
I have published detailed reviews about each in the past, so if you want to know more – just click the links, included in this feature.
Max Factor Excess Shimmer Eye Shadows (review and swatches)
These have a very light texture, give a beautiful dimensional shimmer and stay on really well. Can be used on their own, or on top of any other product. Gorgeous effect, a must-have.
Maybelline Color Tattoo 24Hr (Permanent Taupe, Eternal Bronze, On and On Bronze; Metallic Pomegranate)
Color Tattoos did get a lot of hype when they were brought out. And rightly so! Opaque colours, blendable texture and long-lasting formula. MetallicRead More
It seems like it’s now a tradition to show you what beauty and makeup products I take with me when I am away, just like in this post. So, since I am currently visiting my family, here is a quick update on what products I took with me.
To tell the truth, I barely wear any makeup these days but I did take quite a few products (and a lot of brushes) since people always ask me for a makeover.
I am very happy with the skincare that I’ve packed with me, including a lot of mini bottles which I am currently testing. I only wish I took more than three nail polishes, as my 5-years-old-cousin loves to borrow them
Speaking of my cousin, she insisted on inspecting my “treasures” as she described my makeup bag… When she saw the red lipstick I had, she told me that she had to put it on me, since it’d make me look gorgeous. What can I say? She does know beauty.
It’s time for monthly favourites! And this month I’ve been loving all the products that I’ve featured in May’s favourites, and several more.
Two products from Maybelline: Master Smoky Shadow Pencil in Smoky Chocolate (review and swatches) and Colorama Nail Polish in 16 Place Vendome.
The eye pencil is the a beautiful dark brown fuss-free crayon, which you apply, smudge with a sponge it comes with, and enjoy a long-lasting eye makeup. As for nail polish, I’ve been wearing it for two weeks this month, and already featured here. It is a beautiful bright and glossy fuchsia, I promise to post swatches soon.
I also have two picks from Rouge Bunny Rouge: Raven Glaze Lacquer Liner (review and swatches) andRead More
You know me and my brown eye liners, right? I refuse to be without my favourite one from Lancome, so when I’ve swatched Maybelline Master Smoky Shadow Pencil in Smoky Chocolate, and realized that it was very similar colour-wise, I knew that I had to buy it.
Smoky Chocolate is a dark brown, exactly the kind of shade that I love. So here is how it looks like.
You get an eye crayon on one end and a sponge on the other, and it is easy-peasy to use. You basically apply the eye liner and smudge it with a sponge. It takes seconds to do it, and the results are impressive. It looks as if you actually took some time to do your makeup.
The formula is amazing, it is creamy and easy to blend. Plus I find thatRead More
I am a huge fan of vibrant fuchsia lips and nails, and wear that combo a lot! In fact, I even posted a photo on my Instagram lately.
So I thought that today I’d show you some of my favourite affordable options, if you don’t want to spend a fortune on beauty products.
For lips I’d recommend Revlon’s Lip Butter in Sorbet (review and swatches) and Rimmel’s Vinyl Gloss in Pin Up (review and swatches). Both are juicy and vibrant, sheer but bright glossy lip shades which are perfection for summer.
But if you want something more opaque or matte and more long-lasting, you may want to check these options from Bourjois and L’Oreal.
This weekend I was actuallyRead More
