Illamasqua Powdered Metal in Erzule and Kabuki Body Brush Review, Photos and Swatches

Today I want to tell you about the products that would work perfectly for summer. And these are actually from the Illamasqua SS 2010 collection called Body Electrics.

I’ve already mentioned these products but never wrote a detailed review so here we go…

The first products is the Powdered Metal in Erzule, deep bronze shimmer. There are four Powdered Metals available and I’ve got the darkest shade but you can also get: Bebhionn (soft pink shimmer), Thalia (golden tan shimmer) and Ether (pale gold shimmer).

You can actually use these in so many ways: as a face powder, body powder, eye shadows; you can also mix it with other products you have.

I personally love using it on my body and as an eye shadows.

It is a very dark colour compared to my body so I have to blend it  very well, but once I do, it looks gorgeous! I personally like using some body oil , wait until it absorbs into the skin and then use a very thin layer of this powder very well blended. I find that it stays on the moisturized skin much better. You can probably try mixing some powder with body lotion but I haven’t tried it myself.

The great thing is that it doesn’t  wipe off your clothes when you are wearing something with the long sleeves, it stays on very well and gives a beautiful sheen.

I would recommend Erzule after some fake tan or if your skin is not so pale as it would look more natural but if you do use it on the fair skin, again, make sure that you blend it very well.

The great news is that now you can get your Powdered Metal with a great discount! Now it retails for £15.75 and the original price is £22.50 at Illamasqua.

To make sure that

Make Up For Ever HD Powder Review

Today I want to tell you about the Make Up For Ever HD Powder which is a translucent finishing powder which can be applied over the foundation or worn alone. MUFE HD powder is very finely milled and is made of pure mineral silica (talc- free formula). It sets the foundation and evens out the complexion, it is also said that it slightly mattifies the skin.

To tell the truth,  I rarely (almost never) wear any kind of  powders on my face and I have a lot of reasons for that but the post is not about it. But I do have several powders to use them on  others. And I do like the effect that this one gives a lot. In fact all the girls I’ve used this powder on loved the effect it gives and were happy with the results.

And here is my impression:

I absolutely love the finish it gives, the skin looks so smooth and the makeup is set, it really improves the way your skin looks, especially it is good for

Winter Skincare Essentials: Facial Oils

I have  already posted about the bath and body oils that I love so now I want to show you the face oils that I like.

I love using the oils in the evening  before the cream, massaging it in.  These days a lot of brands make oil with high quality ingredients that don’t break you out but moisturise and nourish your skin.

 Estelle & Thild Rose Otto Facial Oil Dry, Mature Skin (£45)

This is an organic skincare from Sweden which a loving mother created for her daughters ( hence the name). It smells nice, moisturises and nourishes the skin without leaving it oily or greasy. This brand actually just launched at Zuneta so you can check it out there.

I also have two Angela Langford oils (£22.55 each).

Repair & Renew – Q10 & Vitamin E Face Oil

This is the one that I use myself, I massage two-three drops in the evening on my cleansed face  and I can definitely see the difference in the next morning. It makes the skin smooth and radiant, without clogging pores or leaving an oily residue.

Rimmel ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal in 005 Nude Review and Swatches

When Rimmel launched their Kohls Kajals, I knew that I had to get the nude one. I have got it, along with the Kate Moss matte lipstick in 107 back in Autumn, but never mentioned it before. Well, I guess, it is better late, than never…

Here is how it looks like and I actually like the design.

It is soft and creamy and glides easily without dragging the skin.  I also like how this particular shade looks like with my skin tone, it gives a brightening effect,  without looking harsh, as white liner, exactly what I was hoping for.

But the main question is… does it last on the waterline?

On me personally, it
