MakeUp4All AUTUMN 2011 Online Beauty Magazine

I am loving the lipsticks that come in a form of a lip pencil, as they are easy to apply and you don’t need any extra liners or brushes for that. The other day I’ve picked up Maybelline’s ColorDrama Intense Velvet Lip Pencil.

They had so many beautiful colours but 310 Berry Much is the one that stood out for me, this is a very “me” shade. I was actually shopping with a friend who bought the nude one.

I think this is a fantastic product for the price.  The pigmentation is excellent, the colour pay-off is amazing, the colour is gorgeous.

As for the finish, it is just spot-on! It is not a flat matte but, at the same time, not a sheer glossy shade. I’d describe it as

I have already reviewed several shades of Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipsticks in the past and you can see the feature here, and this is the latest addition to the range. Meet 725 Simply Nude – smoky eyes best friend.

The lipstick comes in a gold packaging with a colour matching panel on the bottom.

It is a moisturizing and a fool-proof lipstick formula that glides on easily and  smoothly. Colour Elixir contains shea, avocado, aloe butters, and anti-oxidant white tea so it feels comfortable and non-drying on the lips.

It is really low-maintenance.  I think you could apply it even without mirror, and since it has that “glossy” lightweight texture and finish, it looks good, as it wears off. And this kind of nude  would look nice on a lot of skin tones, as

If you  follow me on Instagram, you have already seen this photo of Rouge Bunny Rouge products that I was sent some time ago. And I want to start the series of reviews with the matte eye shadows, as the brand’s eye shadows have a cult status already, and a lot of you often ask me about them.

I actually already have a shade in Blackpepper Jay, and here are:

  • SWEET DUST SERIEMA, “semi-opaque cool dusty mauve taupe”
  • BASHFUL FLAMINGO, “semi-opaque pale powder-pink, looking ultra natural and fresh on the eye”

Bashful Flamingo is a great under-the brow highlighter to make your eye brows more groomed and defined, it is also a great shade to be used all over the lid to even out the skin tone. It works as a perfect “base” for other shades.

Sweet Dust Seriema is a

If you are a regular reader – you probably know how much I love Clarins Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base, I have mentioned it so many times, and here is a detailed review.

The brand brought out two new shades as a part of their summer collection – 04 Apricot and 05 Golden Bronze, and I was sent one of them for a review. So let’s take a look.

Golden Bronze basically warms up the complexion and gives you a subtle healthy golden glow.

And you can pull it off, even if you have light skin, just mix a drop with your foundation, or apply where you’d apply bronzer.

If you are tanned – use it all over the face, and just

Max Factor have been killing it with their mascaras lately. Their Masterpiece Transform High Impact Volumising Mascara (review here) was one of the best ones I have ever tried, no wonder it won so many awards.

The brand came out with a new one Glamour Extensions 3-in-1 Volumising Mascara  recently which I have posted on Instagram about  a month ago and which you could see in this post.

I have been using it since February, and I want to share my impression finally…

Max Factor Glamour Extensions 3-in-1 Mascara Review

Apparently this mascara contains lash extending carbon-black fibres for thicker, longer and more intense lashes.

And that is how it works –  Glamour Extensions gives amazing volume, great length as the short bristles allow to coat each lash;  and don’t forget the ultra black intense colour. I also love how long-lasting it is! I have sensitive eyes that are often watering, so it is important that it doesn’t smudge or run. Big thumbs up for such an amazing formula.

I have been
