Unfortunately, drugstore mascaras don’t do that much for me, with the exception from Max Factor. I remember how I would save for my favourite 2000 Calories ages ago. And I still love good ol’ Max Factor when it come to mascaras. I think they do amazing ones.
This is why I was excited to try their newest offering – Excess Volume Extreme Impact Mascara (£12.99)
First of all, it gives great volume. It has the same type of brush, as the famous False Lash Effect mascara, thick plastic with small bristles. My lashes are thin and short, and I can definitely tell the difference.
But that is not all! The most exciting part is the ultra black lacquer on the other side. From my experienceRead More
I have already reviewed Rouge Bunny Rouge’s Quartz Eyeliner in Amethyst Essence but this week the brand actually launched a brand new shade – Tanzanite Essence.
And, oh my goodness, it is gorgeous! It is a mid-toned blue with silver shimmer. But RBR describe it in a more sophisticated way, as they do everything: “toned down medium blue, ablaze with opalescent sparkle”.
As I have already mentioned, this is a beautiful colour, and I loved wearing it on my (brown) eyes today. Although it is shimmery, it doesn’t look over the top for a day makeup. You can also build up the intensity and the thickness of the line, which is shown on the swatches below.
Also, as mentioned in the previous review, in my opinion, these eye liners are just perfect forRead More
Nude lip products aren’t something that I get excited about, but the new Max Factor Colour Elixir Gloss collection called Nude Pomade are pretty awesome.
This limited edition release was created by an amazing MUA Caroline Barnes, and they actually are a homage to Mr Max’s first ever lip gloss, Lip Pomade, which he created in 1920′s.
There are four shades, and here is Caroline’s inspiration behind each one, and also her tips. Plus my comments.
10 Pristine Nude
Caroline: “This is an ultimate nude lip colour and it should be part of every woman’s make-up bag. Suiting all skin tones, it’s my make-up staple. It will perk up your look and create a natural, healthy look when you’re feeling lacklustre.”
Actually, this lip gloss is now a part of my makeup bag, too. It is sheer enough so that my natural lip colour shows through plus it is not a concealer like “dead looking” dated nude. It has pretty mauve/pink undertones, and should look amazing on a lot of women. My personal favourite.
15 Radiant Rose
Caroline: “This shade conveys an expensive lips – with accents of champagne it’s the most subtle gloss in my collection. It will have an incredible lip shaping appearance with its gold flecks and will suit all skin tones.”
This is a beautiful warm-toned shimmering lip gloss, which I personally love paired with matte eye makeup and a liner, it adds just the right amount of glow, plus it makes theRead More
How beautiful is this BECCA Ultimate Creme Eyeliner in Belle Epoque? It is a gorgeous shimmering plum which comes in a cute signature BECCA packaging.
The formula is amazing, it is very creamy and applies smoothly, you can get a subtle line or build up the intensity, plus it’s very easy to use it on a waterline. I’d say it is pretty foolproof! Even if you mess up a bit, this shade is more forgiving than matte black, so may be a nice one to start with if you a beginner when it comes to gel/cream eye liners.
Moreover, it can be used as aRead More
Maybelline Color Tattoo 24HR in Metallic Pomegranate was an impulse purchase. I jut saw it, and had to get it. I actually already have some Maybelline cream eye shadows but don’t use them enough.
But this one I have been using every single day ever since I’ve got it, the colour is just gorgeous! It actually reminds be a bit of one of my all time favourite shade, but this one is definitely has more purple to it.Read More
