The product that I really love is Clarins Blush & Bronzing Compact (£30). It is absolutely huge, comes in a nice packaging and with a decently sized mirror. You get three shades of bronzer with one being shimmery and two – matte, there is also an apricot blush. You can use each shade individually, or mix. The texture of the blush is softer than the texture of the bronzers so when products are mixed together they give you that nice luminous glow and created that sun-kissed effect. This bronzer actually made it to my monthly favourites.
Although I have pretty light skin tone, I don’t find it to be muddy or too orange on me. But I use it lightly, obviously.
I think Blush & Bronzing Compact is aRead More
As weird, as it sounds I don’t really care about dark under eye circles or bags that much. Although I understand the corrector-concealer-powder concept for the under eye area, that is something you’d almost never see me doing. In fact YSL’s Touche Elcat is the only product I have ever used up which I am using under the eyes.
All I care about is a light coverage and some light reflection. This is obviously, my personal preference, and I do use a lot of products when I am doing someone else’s makeup.
This is why I am excited to share about one of my favourite Rouge Bunny Rouge products. Glide Concealer NAKED DISGUISE which is described as “bare skin but better”. And that is exactly that!
This is my favourite under eye product, ever. It feels really light on the skin and gives that very natural light-to-medium coverage, and you can still see the texture of the skin. It is enough to make you look fresher andRead More
Regular readers know that I am a mascara snob.
Although most people think that mascara is the product on which you can save, I usually invest in mine, with only one exception. And that is Max Factor mascaras.
I have reviewed all their mascara launches which came out in the last several years, you can read them if you click on Max Factor category. I think they all are absolutely brilliant, and I always recommend them not only to my readers but also to my friends. And I know that some of my girlfriends are now fans, too.
And today I want to talk about the latest release which is Voluptuous False Lash Effect Mascara, it was already mentioned here.
Unlike most MF mascaras, it comes in the colourful teal and gold packaging, so a lot of people may like that.
As for the mascara itself, the fist thing that you notice is the brush which is huge (see the comparison photos below), and looks different from anything else I’ve used. According to the brand, helix shape enables a 360° application. And that is theRead More
I was sent several bagsy products, and I have already reviewed the lipsticks they have in the line, and today I want to tell you about the blush, which is probably my favourite item from those that I’ve tried.
And here is why…
It comes in the cutest packaging, and with an inspirational quote inside. The product itself is very easy to use thanks for the domed shape which can be applied even on the go, and be blended out with fingers.
As for the texture, it is soft and velvety, I’d say it is cream-to-powder, the kind of formula most people prefer. It is not too creamy but, at theRead More
Clarins released four shades of Waterproof Eyeshadow Shimmering Cream Colour, as a part of their summer 2016 makeup collection, and I have all the shades to share with you. (See other colour products from the collection here).
These are truly brilliant. I’ve worn each shade several times already, and I am ready to share my experience.
While I haven’t tested them in the pool, or the sea (I wish) yet, I can report that they are really long-lasting, as promised. They stay on all day long. I have tried wearing Clarins Waterproof Eyeshadows with primer, and without, and both results are impressive. I don’t have oily eye lids, so these eye shadows last during the whole working day without creasing or fading, even without the primer.
You can use these both with your fingers or with a brush which is extremely easy. Just make sure you blend theRead More
