If you are interested in contouring but don’t want to spend a fortune on a product – Maybelline Master Sculpt Contouring Palette is a great option to consider and here is why.
You get both a contour shade and a highlighter.
If cool-toned contouring shades don’t look good on your skin tone – this would be a great option, as it is warmer than most products but at the same time it doesn’t look orange on the face. It warms up the complexion. The highlighter is also warm toned and it contains golden micro-shimmer in it.
The texture is creamy and soft, you get aRead More
I think brands like Inglot and Kiko are taking the beauty world by storm. I mean what is not to like: huge selection of products, brilliant quality and affordable prices. Count me in! And while I’ve tried numerous products from Inglot over the years, somehow I just got my first Kiko product this summer only. But it is love...
I’ve decided to pick up their Long-Lasting Wet & Dry Use Eyeshadow to begin with, as it sounded and looked like something I’d enjoy using. There are 32 shades in general so it was a hard decision but I’ve managed to choose 202 Golden Mauve.
First of all, it looks absolutely gorgeous in the pan, you get a wavy pattern, and a handy lill’ mirror.
As for the shadows – the texture is great, it is buttery soft and very smooth, you can apply and blend it even with your finger.
When applied dry, the golden shimmer shows through more, especially when you gently pat it on – you get aRead More
Since we were talking about lipsticks yesterday, I thought that’d be a good idea to share about the lipstick which is a part of Clarins’ Autumn collection.
I was sent Rouge Eclat in the shade 22 Red Paprika (there is also one called 21 Tawny Rose).
Clarins lip products are fantastic, and Rouge Eclat is not an exception. It feels amazing on the lips, almost like a lip balm but with an intense colour. According to the brand, it protects against dehydration, and boosts collagen. And in reality Rouge Eclat one of those lipsticks that feel comfortable on and stay on nicely, without any drying.
My friend who is not a lipstick wearer who tried this lipstick was impressed that the formula makes it really easy to apply the product as it glides on and doesn’t make a mess.
One more thing thatRead More
My friends ask me all the time about my favourite high-street makeup products, and I have realized that I haven’t posted a top 5 [affordable makeup products] feature in ages (See previous ones here and here)… So here we go!
Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in Alluring Rose (review and cheek swatches)
If I had to choose only one product out of these – it’d be the blush. Regular readers know how many blushes I own, and the fact that I’ve barely touched any other in months says it all. Creme Puff Blushes are dreamy! Soft and creamy, they blend beautifully and look gorgeous on the skin. I am a convert, and I have recommended it to a lot of my girlfriends, too. There are six shades in the range and I have swatches of three (click the link above). I can’t recommend these enough!
Rimmel Kate Moss Lasting Finish Lipstick in 45 (review and lip swatches)
Being a fan of Rimmel Kate Moss lipsticks I knew I’d love theRead More
If you follow me on Instagram, you could already see a preview of Rouge Bunny Rouge new products for Summer 2015. The most exciting one is probably their duo cream eye shadows. I have actually included these in my monthly favourites.
This duo actually combines two gorgeous shades: Atlas Swallowtail and Brocade Skipper (review and swatches), and regular readers will probably know how much I love both!
The texture is creamy and smooth it applies like a dream, blends out easily and stays on for hours without smudging or fading. I experience only minor creases by the end of the working day. Just make sure that you blend the product quickly (which you can even do with your fingers), as once set – it doesn’t move. One more thing which I have to mention – it is a great formula for mature ladies, as the shadows don’t enhance the texture of the skin.
The finish isRead More
