Have you got colour in your cheeks? Yes, that is Arctic Monkeys “Do I Wanna Know?” (listen )
This song actually inspired me to write about my current favourite cheek products. But, and this will be a shock for regular readers, I have been neglecting blushes lately. Yes, really.
And here are the two products that I have been using religiously lately…
Trish’s bronzer is probably my favourite out of all that I own. It is not too dark, too orange/muddy/shimmery/you name it. It warms up the complexion, and adds just the right amount of glow thanks to the delicate shimmer. Golden Bronzer looks amazing even on my light skin tone. Moreover, it is very finely milled, so blends beautifully and looks natural. Brilliant product. Maybe this will be the first ever bronzer that I use up?Read More
It’s been a while since I did a post about brushes… So, I think, it’s time a for a little update. I’ve decided to show you my most used face brushes whether it’s on myself or when I am doing someone’s makeup.
There are 6 that I absolutely have to have.
Let’s take a look:
Rouge Bunny Rouge Face Contour Brush 012 (Review)
This is my newest brush, and my favourite for contouring. I have quite a few which I’ve collected over the years but they all are forgotten now, since I have this one. It has a perfect shape that goes right under the cheekbones. The bristles are firm but soft, which makes it a perfect contouring brush.
- Can be purchased from Beauty Bay and Beauty Habit.
Japonesque 924 Travel Blush Brush (review)
Japonesque rule the brush world, they are among the best. And their 924 Blush Brush is my favourite face brush that I own from them. It feels incredibly nice and soft on the skin and blends the product nicely. This is my blush brush of choice but I often use it for powder, too, as I am not a big fan of big powder brushes.
Daniel Sandler Blusher Brush (mentioned here)
TrishMcEvoy is such a great makeup brand which is, unfortunately, not that widely available. But if you have a chance - definitely try their products, I personally love everything I have from this brand.
I’ve decided to share the most interesting, in my opinion, products from their latest launches.
I am loving the look of this Lip Color Collection.
There are seven shades: Barely Nude – peach nude, Barely There – spiced nude, Rosewood – spiced rose, Flirt – soft vibrant coral, Kisses – red coral, Precious Pink – soft vibrant pink and Barely Peach – soft peach. Each is $28.
There are also two face products that caught my attention - Beauty Booster Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20.
It comes in three shades and retails for $75. The formula is infused with antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, and light-diffusing color to “instantly provide radiant, Even Skin while fending off age, dehydration and free-radical damage.”
And Beauty Balm Instant Solutions SPF 35 which comes in two shades and retails for $85. It will be available from 10th December which is in a week from today.
This product should prime, brighten, even and hydrate skin, while controlling oils and improving skin’s texture over time.
Resort Makeup Collection ($150):

I am really loving these new Trish McEvoy trio eye shadows and face palette. I think they would make an amazing gift even for those who already have it all as Trish’s brand is not that easily available so it’s quite exclusive plus it looks adorable.
There are two colour variations of Effortless Eyes Wet & Dry Eyeshadow Trio in Lilac and Nude. These are handmade in Italy. Each is $42 and they are sold without the makeup case.
There is also this gorgeous Golden Face Color Trio which includes Golden and Golden Tan Bronzers and Blush Natural. It retails for $38.Read More
I’ve noticed that a lot of readers love the photos with just a random selection of products. So, as I was organizing my makeup today, I thought I’d take the photo of some of my bronzers.
Unfortunately, most of them were Limited Edition so there is no point to link to the reviews. The only two which you can still get are those bronzers from Too Faced. And Hoola from Benefit, of course.
I still have to write about the Clarins bronzer, which is from this summer edition and about the Chanel one which I had for ages but never mentioned for some reason.
And do you use bronzers? Which one is your favourite?Read More
