Remember I did a post about foundations?
Since a lot of you asked for more details, here is the official information about some of them:
Tom Ford Traceless Perfecting Foundation SPF 15, $80
“The Traceless Perfection Foundation is a natural-finish, longwearing, humidity-resistant foundation that hydrates and evens your skin tone, creating a flawless, supple, poreless canvas with medium-to-full coverage. Its formula includes the nourishing Tom Ford Infusing Complex to help smooth and renew skin while helping diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.”
Cle de Peau Radiant Fluid Foundation SPF 24, $125
“Radiant Fluid Foundation is a liquid foundation with added SPF 24 sun protection that gives your skin a dewy, lustrous finish and creates a glowing veil of beauty, revealing vibrant luminosity that transcends the natural look of skin. It contains the Illuminating Complex, which is a powerful moisture-stabilizing force that promotes exquisite radiance. The foundation also resists dullness, wear and changes in color throughout the day to help you retain a beautiful, smooth finish.”
There are 12 shades to choose from and it’s
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.
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
I already made a preview of the upcoming lipsticks in February and here are more details about Yves Saint Laurent and Burberry Lip Mists.
As you remember, I was most excited about the Dior Addict which I already tried and YSL Glossy Candy(£21), so I can’t wait for those to arrive!

Burberry Lip Mist Natural
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!
- 108 Ocre Rose, golden beige pink
- 109 Corail D’Or, soft coral
- 110 Fuchsia
Before I start, I have to say that it was very hard to narrow my list of favourite makeup products of 2012 but I’ve tried my best.
Let’s take a look at what I’ve chosen…
Benefit Erase Paste
I don’t really use concealer on a daily basis, unless I have a new, really bad spot, I just use Touche Eclat under my eyes and that’s all. But if I had to choose my favourite “concealer” type of product – that would be this one. It is a creamy peach corrector which works great for the dark under eyes circles. I had a review of it but because of some tech problems, it was deleted, need to re-write it soon.
Omorovicza Complexion Perfector BB SPF 20
One of my favourite face products you can read the details why here. If you can afford it, I would definitely recommend.
Rouge Bunny Rouge Tinted Moisturiser Sketches on Water
This gives a very natural finish and light coverage and you can’t see it on the face, at all! Miracle for dry skin in cold weather, as it doesn’t enhance any dry patches. See all the shade available here.
Daniel Sandler Invisible Radiance Foundation and Concealer
It is a very nice foundation that gives a dewy finish so works great for my dry skin. The shade Porcelain is a great fit for fair skin and works for me in AW, in SS, I use the second lightest shade – Beige. Plus it comes with concealer which is a great deal for the price. Want to know more?
BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl
This product probably doesn’t even need an introduction. It’s the best highlighter out there, it gives a very natural and beautiful effect.
Wow, I was able to choose only three blushers, although I was very tempted to add more of them.
BECCA Cream Blush in Amaryllis
My favourite blush for AW months, perfect cool toned and natural looking, gives a nice
