MakeUp4All AUTUMN 2011 Online Beauty Magazine

Here is a weekly update of the new products for face, lips and eyes that caught my attention, and are worth the purchase, in my opinion.

SS16 New Beauty Products Burberry, theBalm and Benefit

theBalm Meet Matt Trimony Matte Eyeshadow Palette, $42 Nordstrom and ASOS.

theBalm eye shadows are brilliant (my reviews here and here), and I am loving the look of the new matte palette which is the third  in the  Meet Matt line. There are nine new shades: Matt Lin, Thomas, Rossi, Lopez, Kumar, Moskowitz, Evans, Reed and Ahmed.

Benefit Benefit Cosmetics Dew the Hoola Soft Matte Liquid Bronzer, $28 from Sephora

Birthday Outfit and Makeup

It was my Birthday this weekend so I’ve decided to share with you what I wore and what makeup I’ve used. I don’t see Birthdays as a big deal (after a certain age, ha!) but it is always cool to dress up and spend time with friends and family.

Of course, I went for red with a touch of black, outfit wise. And here is the makeup I’ve used:

Marina Makeup4all Birthday FOTD and OOTD

Face

Vichy BB Cream, I need to buy a full size of it soon, it is an amazing light  base which gives some luminosity.  Rouge Bunny Rouge  Naked Disguise Glide Concealer which is brilliant for the under eye area. Inglot HD Sculpting Powder in 504 is my favourite for that natural looking shadow and theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer for some glow.

Lips and Nails

Surprisingly I’ve used a very affordable trio: NYX  Soft Matte Lip Cream in Transylvania which I am obsessed with

Here is a preview of the newest beauty launches that caught my attention this week for: Face, Eyes and Lips.

Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick, $26 from Sephora

Wow, look at all those shades!  Black Truffle (Black Violet) and Liquorice (Oxblood) look killer, I need.

Makeup4all 15 Makeup Favourites of 2015

Ok, I am finally doing it!  Writing 2015 yearly favourites that is.  The thing is when I started writing this post I’ve gathered so many products that I’d be going on, and on about them all. This is why here are 15 I loved the most. 15 since it was 2015, yes, I know…

Makeup4all 15 Makeup Favourites of 2015

If I had to choose only 1 product that would probably be Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in 25 Alluring Rose (review and swatches)

Long-time readers know how much I love my blushers. And this year it was all about this one, I’ve barely used anything else.  Creme Puff Blush gives that luminous glow that instantly brightens up the complexion. The formula is incredibly soft and smooth and blends into the skin beautifully. I have several shades but Alluring Rose is the love of my [beauty] love.

The other favourite is still my Trish McEvoy Golden Bronzer (review). As you can see from the photo above, it is very well loved. It warms up the complexion without looking orange or muddy.  I  like the hint of radiance it gives, too.

BECCA’s Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl (review) is still the best glow-and-radiance-in-a-bottle product out there.  I usually mix it with foundation  to make my skin look “healthy”. This formula and shade = perfection.

If I had to pick only one “foundation” of the year – that’d be Clarins HydraQuench Tinted Moisturizer (review and swatches), hands down. It is dry skin’s best friend. Clarins know how to

I’ve wanted theBalm luminizers  for as long as I remember (and by that I mean since they came out). I have swatched them several times  at the counter but couldn’t make up my mind on which one to get, and I could not justify getting all three considering how many products I already have.

This is why when I saw The Manizers palette  – I simply had to get it. This is a limited edition, as far as I know, so get it while you can. Yes, the single powders come in that gorgeous packaging but this cardboard  one is perfectly fine. It is sturdy and slim.

So what is so special about these powders?

theBalm The Manizer Sisters Palette Review and Swatches illuminators

First of all the texture, it is very smooth, soft and buttery, almost creamy, it melts into the skin. The pigmentation is also brilliant, you only need  one swipe. It is no wonder these babies are so loved by all the beauty enthusiasts.

Let’s take a closer look:

 

Mary-Lou Manizer

This is a gorgeous warm-toned golden highlighter. And it is not subtle by  any means, it gives you a proper glow,  instantly brightens and perks up the complexion. Use it on top of the cheek bones, upper lip and under the brow bone. It may be too intense for some people for a day time but if you love you some luminosity – it is perfection.

Cindy-Lou Manizer
