YSL Volupte Sheer Candy Glossy Balm and Burberry Lip Mist Sheer Lipstick

I already made a preview of the upcoming lipsticks in February and here are more details about Yves Saint Laurent and Burberry Lip Mists.

Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Golden Lustre Lipsticks

Yves Saint Laurent are launching the new gorgeous range of lipsticks called Rouge Pur Couture Golden Lustre which will be available from September.

The packaging is almost like the original Rouge Pur Couture but it doesn’t have a dark line, it has a pure gold packaging.

The promo looks stunning, I think it would look amazing as a part of a holiday campaign.

There are 13 shades, including  shade 101 Violet Singulier, which is a purple shade  that you can probably mix with other shades, or use on it’s own if you are brave enough.

The other shades are:

I will start with the shades that I like the best, now these six babies look awesome!

My Favourite Products For Under Eye Area: Eye Creams + Concealers

If you follow me on Instagram, you have already seen this photo, and my promise  of the feature. So here it is…

Actually, believe it or not, but usually I don’t care about dark circles (on myself, not when I am doing someone’s makeup), unless they really look that bad. But when I do want to look flawless, here is what I do.

Best eye creams and concealers YSL benefit Clarins FOM London Makeup4all

First of all, I use a good eye cream, for me it has to be a moisturizing balm, as I have very dry skin. I love  Clarins Special Eye Contour Balm Dry Skin (review) and FOM London Revitalising Eye Care Balm (read about it), I leave it for some time while I am getting ready, and afterwards the following products are being used:

Benefit Erase Paste Concealer (review and swatches)

It is a great concentrated creamy product that counteracts

Favourite Makeup Products of 2018

As promised, here is a feature about my favourite makeup  of 2018. It was supposed to be makeup and beauty but I am already almost on 1200 words so had to divide the feature into 2 parts. I’ve chosen the products that I love and used the most hence some of them may look a bit grubby but it does show that they are true favourites.

And by the way, you can also check out my favourite products of 2017,  2016 and 2015

Base

Rouge Bunny Rouge SERENE LIGHT Skin Perfector  (here). This is a slightly tinted primer which leaves your skin glowing and luminous. For my very dry skin it is perfect. It is a primer so barely gives any coverage but is great for adding radiance and creating that “healthy” polished look. I have used it on my wedding day, and used it up completely. Absolutely incredible! Gets big thumbs up from me.

 Chanel Les Beiges All-in-One Healthy Glow Fluid SPF15 ( £34 from Harrods and from Nordstrom).

The “foundation” I loved the most this year. A very light and moisturising one, feels light on the skin, and gives a light (to medium) coverage. According to Chanel, it contains  a hyaluronic acid derivative and  a complex of cotton flower and white rose plant cells.  It has a relatively strong scent but I personally like it. Another thing I love about it is a chic and minimalistic tube. And SPF 15, of course.

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Eye Lift In a Tube. Dual Ended  Full Coverage Anti-Aging Concealer and  Brightener (in Light). I am not sure if the name of this product could be even longer. (From Selfridges and Sephora)

Long time readers will know how  I like only very light textures under my eyes hence I am such a fan of Touche Eclat (I’ve used many many tubes) and this Rouge Bunny Rouge gem. The same goes with this product, I did not use the concealer side at all. However, the Illuminator is incredible, I have almost used it up. It does not enhance the fine lines,  while reflecting the light which brightens the under eye area. Just don’t expect it to cover the dark circles completely, it is not the task of this product. I wonder if this Illuminator is available individually. It seems like there is one with the same name ( It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination Light).

4 theBalm Balm Desert (review).

I feel like the next two products do not need an introduction, as I’ve been  talking about them non stop.  I am determined to use this bronzer/blush until I am completely  done with it. It sculpts and gives colour at the same time.  You get definition and a healthy glow with Balm Desert. I also love the finish, it is not matte but not shimmery.  Everything about it is great, including the cute cardboard packaging.

5 Daniel Sandler Watercolour in Golden Glow (review). 

It’s like a healthy post-holiday glow in a bottle.  A shimmery bronze which
