MakeUp4All AUTUMN 2011 Online Beauty Magazine

You all know that I am a huge fan of cream products, and mentioned various cream blushers so many times. But what about bronzers?

Yes, cream bronzers! I have three variants to show you here:

Cream Bronzers Chanel, Laura Mercier and Sienna XThe most famous is definitely Soleil Tan de  Chanel  (review and swatches)

It is a cult classic for a reason, it is such a versatile product, it can be used as a base to warm up the complexion or as a regular bronzer to add some glow and definition to the face. The texture is light and the formula blends like a dream. I Highly recommend it, unless you very fair skin tone, this is the most orange-toned bronzer out of three.

You can buy this product from Selfridges  for £32 or Nordstrom for $48.

Regular readers will know that I am a huge fan of Clarins lip products and baby pink is my “nude”. This is why I’ve decided to share my top 3 Clarins pink lip products that are my personal must haves.

Clarins Must Have 3 Pink Lip Products 1

I did a detailed review of each so I won’t say a lot this time but will just mention that all three are phenomenal, they all are like a mix of lip treatment and a beautiful colour glosses. Smell amazing and feel nice when applied. It only depends on the applicator and the effect that you want on your lips:

Regular readers know that I am not a big powder user ( I have a lot of different powders in my kit; but this is the only one that I use on myself). But even I, with my very dry skin, like some powder on a hot and humid day. To a)make my makeup last longer b)mattify my T-zone a bit.

This is why today I want to tell you about my personal favourite powder which is Rouge Bunny Rouge Flawless Face Powder Precious Velvet. 

I’ve had it for 2 years now, so I am not sure why it took me so long to write about it…

Rouge Bunny Rouge Flawless Face Powder Precious Velvet Review

Why do I like it?

  • It doesn’t enhance the dry patches on the skin that I may have and doesn’t dry out  my skin.
  • I don’t feel this powder on my face, it is very lightweight.
  • The brand says that it melds with the skin, and I totally agree.  It is not visible at all. You just get a perfected and flawless finish.
  • I like the effect Precious Velvet gives, it mattifyes  but doesn’t  make your face look  flat and life-less, you skin shows through.
  • For me personally, the effect lasts all day, but if you  very have oily skin, you may need a special matte powders. I haven’t tried it on anyone with such skintype so can’t make any comments. But on girls with normal skin  it worked amazing, as well.
  • As for the main ingredients, Rouge Bunny Rouge list the following: “Papaya Fruit Extract as a natural “face lift” and skin softener, plus Hyssop Extract with soothing properties. Rice Powder imparts a perfectly natural, non-shiny finish. “

My Eye Brows Beauty Products Must Haves

It took me some  time to realize that eye brows are very important. I did over-pluck mine, like a lot of people back in the 90′s, but luckily they grew back! Plus I never really did anything with them…

This Tuesday I went out with  only one makeup product on my face –  eye brow pencil (I’ve also curled my lashes), and I was happy with the way I looked. In fact, when I was visiting my family this is the look I’d rock most of the days. They say eyebrows frame the face; and the is spot on! I personally think good brows make a huge difference.

This is why I though I’d share some of the products that I love using on my myself, and on others.

Eye Brow must haves anastasia shavata and hourglass

Shavata Double Ended Eyebrow Pencil (review and swatches)

I have to start with a product that is probably my personal favourite! I always sharpen it really well so that it creates a  precise line which never looks drawn in; but I never drag it on and do small strokes to feel in any gaps and make to brows more defined.  This shade really suits my cool-toned brows, the texture is soft and it stays on for the whole day. It is a total winner, and I highly recommend.

As you already know, there are tonnes of new foundations coming out our way for AW season, so I thought I’d share about my personal new love, base-wise. Buxom Show Some Skin Weightless Foundation.

I’ve got a sample with a Sephora purchase several months ago, and totally forgot about it, until recently when I threw in some samples to try while I was visiting my family.

Before I start, I have to mention that now I have a tan (plus fake tan on top to make my skin even more “sun kissed”),  and I really love experimenting with my makeup, as I can now wear different shades and colours, which usually don’t suit my skin tone.

The shade that I have is the fifth (out of ten) in the line which is Meet Me Latte ( described as “neutral beige for medium skin tones”) which is still a bit dark for me but I can make it work.

Buxom Show Some Skin Weightless Foundation ReviewNow, the foundation is absolutely amazing! As the name suggests, it is weightless, I don’t feel it on the face, at all. It is like a hydrating tinted moisturizer.  I also like that it lasts all day on me, doesn’t melt or look greasy, and I have tested it in very hot climate. But please keep in mind that I have very dry skin.

My second favourite thing is the fact that you get some serious glow! It is not shiny or glittery, but just a
