Since my post about pink blushers got so many views, I’ve decided to write one about reddish ones, too. Do let me know, if you’d like me to choose 5 corals/peaches and berries/plums…
So here is what I’ve picked:
Hourglass Aura Cheek Tint in Flush (review and swatches)
I think that Flush is a perfect name for this sheer water-based blusher, it gives the most natural and beautiful effect. Cheek Tint is easy to blend, plus it has a nice staying power.
Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush in 18 Soft Cardinal (review and swatches)
This is probably my personal favourite! It is a gorgeous cream blusher with “wet & glossy” texture, it doesn’t enhance any dry patches and looks like a second skin, I use itRead More
I really love Revlon lip products, and finally got around posting about their ColorBurst Balm Stain. I wanted 010 Chérie since I first saw the promo photo of it and, finally, got it this December. And, here is a review, at last…
ColorBurst Balm Stain is, as the name suggests, a creamy balm that feels nice and non-drying on the lips, gives a beautiful glossy finish, and fades to a light rosy stain after a while. Honestly, for the price, I can’t think about anything that I dislike. Maybe only the minty scent, but it fades after some time.
As for the colour - Chérie is aRead More
I was asked about the Clarins Be Long mascara so many times… This is why I am happy to share my opinion about it.
Lately I’ve been loving volumizing mascaras that give a real wow-effect, such as Chanel’s Le Volume de Chanel and Max Factor’s Excess Volume Extreme Impact , so I was a bit afraid that this one could be too subtle. But, luckily, you can get not only “natural looking lashes” with this mascara. You can achieve more dramatic results, too.
Be Long has a small rubbery bendy brush which makes the application very easy, you can also apply it to the bottom lashes, without getting the product everywhere. Plus you can get even the smallest and the shortest lashes with it. Win-win!
So what are the results? You getRead More
I already reviewed Daniel Sandler’s Long Lasting Waterproof Eyeliners. I have five shades out of six: Black Velvet, Brown Velvet, Purple Velvet, Grey Velvet and Green Velvet (Blue Velvet is the one missing).
But recently those liners got a lill’ makeover; now, instead of black packaging, you get a matching colourful one, which I personally like a lot. Plus Daniel added a new shade – Aqua Velvet, which he kindly sent for me to try.
And… it is my favourite one! After the brown one. But you know me and the brown eye pencils, I can’t live without those.
But back to the Aqua shade. If I had to write a feature about my top 5 Daniel Sandler Cosmetics today, this would be in it, for sure. Yes, I like itRead More
Being a fan of Max Factor I was excited at the opportunity to try their new Excess Intensity Longwear Liners. After using them for over a month now, I am happy to share my opinion, and show you the swatches of all six shades.
They all come in a nice black tube packaging, and a lid is actually matching the shade of the pencil, which is very handy. I also like the fact that you don’t need to sharpen these, you just need to twist to get more product out.
As you can see from the photo, the liner are relatively slim, so you can get a precise line, if you wish.
I personally really loved the formula, the pencils are soft and smooth, they don’t drag the skin and glide on easily. The lasting power is also pretty impressive, but I don’t have oily lids, and the the products usually do stay on me rather well in general.
Besides the staying power, I love the colours, the products live up to their name - Excess Intensity, the shades are very pigmented and lookRead More
