MeMeBox. The Hottest Beauty Trends From Asia

When it comes to Asian beauty products, I have to admit that I don’t know that many brands or products, maybe only the cult ones.

This is why I was very excited when I got the opportunity to try the famous MeMeBox which is a beauty box with hand-picked makeup and beauty products from Korea.

This month I was sent a Memebox Special #17 K-Style. It comes in a pink packaging and a pink  box inside, very girly.  So what products were selected to be a part of this release?

5 Weekdays – 5 Lipsticks

My personal lipstick  drawer is getting out of control. But I keep using the same products over, and over again. So last week I’ve decided to plan my “weekday lipstick wardrobe” in advance. Here are the five products I’ve chosen:

5 Weekdays - 5 Lipsticks BECCA, Hourglass, Rouge Bunny Rouge, Clarins, Elis Faas

BECCA Ultimate Matte Lip Colour in Eloise (review and lip swatches)

This is the lightest shade of all and the only matte formula from the selection. Eloise is a beautiful baby pink that suits any look, just make sure that your lips are in a great condition, as otherwise it may enhance the dry patches.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Sheer Lipstick Succulence of Dew in Murmurings (review and swatches)

I have been loving this lipstick recently,  it feels extremely comfortable on the lips, hydrating and moisturizing. Plus it gives

Never underestimate the power of a good base! Today I want to show you a really great one - Instant Light Eye Perfecting by Clarins.

Why do I like it?

Clarins Instant Light Eye Perfecting Base Review

As the name suggests, it instantly evens out the eye lids. And I truly appreciated the effect when I was doing the makeup on a  client who had really a lot  of blue veins showing through. This products created a perfect canvas to begin the work with.

The formula smooths the skin, and makes the eye shadows stick to it better. Just make sure that you apply a thin layer and spread it out evenly. That makes the eye shadows last a lot longer without

I know that a lot of people were  waiting for the review of Clarins Ombre Matte Eye Shadows, but I wanted to take my time, and test them out properly. And, finally, I am ready to share my impression.

This Autumn the brand released 6 shades of  what they describe as “new generation cream to powder eye shadows”:01 Nude Beige, 02 Nude Pink, 03 Taupe,  04 Rosewood, 05 Sparkle Grey and 06 Earth.

Clarins Ombre Matte Eye Shadows Review and Swatches Nude Pink RosewoodThese come with a signature red Clarins packaging, in a cute lightweight plastic jar with a golden lid on top.  Despite the fact that it is not glass, the products still looks high-end.

So what about the formula?

I’d describe it as a very well pressed creamy powder. The finish is matte (at least in the shades that I have), so they look very natural on the eye lids.

It is

Max Factor Skin Luminizer Foundation Review

Foundation that made it’s début at  Victoria Beckham’s (AW14) show;  with the look  created by Pat McGrath? Need I say more? I am in!

What foundation was that? Max Factor’s Skin Luminizer. I was sent one of the shades, so here are my thoughts:

Max Factor Skin Luminizer Foundation Review and SwatchesI am a big fan of the design, the cool swirly highlighter stripes add something special to it. Both products mix together, as they come out.

The packaging is made of plastic, which may not look  or feel so chic as my favourite, sadly discontinued Second Skin, but it is very handy for travelling and taking it with you, it is very light.

The pump is very well made,  it dispenses even a very small amount of product so you don’t waste any.

What about the foundation itself?

It has a
