Regular readers know that I love my blushes… And I would like to show you my favourite blush combination that I have been wearing non-stop recently. I adore my Amaryllis, but sometimes I just want something different.
This is when my berry/plummy/mauve blushes get some love. I am a fan of such shades for AW, as they look nice with my light skin and dark eyes and hair, they instantly brighten up the complexion and look nice with cool toned pinks and plums that I often wear on my lips.
I really like ArtDeco Cream Rouge For Cheeks and Lips in 17 Creamy Mauve (review), it is such a gorgeous shade but
Today I want to tell you about a special product that I have included in my November favourites, and have been loving for months already. It is BECCA’s Luminous Skin Colour Ultra-Sheer Foundation SPF 25+.
The name is very spot- on! You get a very light coverage, dewy foundation. Imagine if you would mix your serum or moisturizer with a bit of your regular foundation, now you get the idea.
I personally prefer a light coverage on my face, and more coverage where I need it, instead of full-on (often heavy, and sometimes even mask-like foundation) all over. And with this product you get exactly that – it is light-as-air.
Although it can cover only minor imperfections, it is actually fantastic! You get a polished, healthy looking and more even complexion! Just add some under-eye highlighter/concealer and dots of concealer where you need to hide any imperfections on your face, and you will get a very natural-looking result!
It looks just like your skin, butRead More
I already did a preview of the Ellis Faas Hot Lips, and here I have two (out of nine) shades to show you.
They come in a hot pink packaging which is similar to the shade on the model’s face from the promo.
Let me tell you – it.is. amazing!
You get an uber pigmented and very long lasting lip product (liquid lipstick? hybrid of a gloss and stain?). You literally need the tiniest amount to get a full-on colour that applies evenly and smoothly. And it stays on for hours, survives teas andRead More
Clarins Extra-Comfort Foundation (£35 for 30 ml) comes in a glass jar which is very chic and luxurious to look at, but not very practical (especially when you are in a hurry) in so many ways. But that is the only thing that’s not my favourite in this foundation, everything else I adore.
“Anti-Ageing, Replenishes, Illuminates.” This is how the brand describes the product, and I would agree.
I have dry skin, and I love everything [yes, I do realize that I've already said that] about this foundation, it is so good! I don’t even know where to start…
The Illuminating claims? It delivers! I was sick at home for a week and this foundation instantly (yes, the name speaks for itself) transformed my skin from dull into a glowing and polished version (of course, with the help of the right skincare). Seriously, I wasRead More
I have promised a lip swatch of one of my favourite lip products - BM Beauty Mineral Lip Gloss in Nude. So here it is…
BM beauty?! Yes, it is not the brand that you hear about very often. I was sent some of their products a long time ago, and I felt absolutely in love with the brush and lip gloss (you can read a feature here).
I already wrote about the gloss, so won’t repeat myself, but it really is unlike anything else that I have. Maybe it’s because I don’t really have any experience with mineral indie lip products?!Read More
