I have a slight obsession with cool-toned shimmering lip glosses, the sadly discontinued Guerlain’s KissKiss Gloss in 800 Crystal Pearl has to be my favourite gloss in the World. I am actually always on a hunt for a good dupe. Plus, despite having tonnes of lip products, this is the kind of lip glosses that I manage to use up.
This is why I had to pick up new L’Oreal Glam Shine in Dazzle 201 Sparkle Shower. By the way, there are tonnes of gorgeous shades and several finishes in the line, so they are definitely worth checking out.
And this gloss is really nice, it feels great on the lips, moisturizing, non-sticky or gloopy at all. I also like the applicator (similar to YSL) which “hugs” the lips and helps with the application. While this shade is quite forgiving that may be something useful with darker and brighter colours.

My favourite red lipstick at the moment? Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick in 01 Personne Ne Rouge.
It has a pretty cool design, and the applicator makes it easy to use the product and, I find, that is goes on smoothly and evenly.
The formula is great. It feels light and non-greasy on the lips. You can apply one layer for a lightly-stained effect or several – for an intense colour pay-off. It takes some time to set but when it is set – it has that nice matte finish which is not flat of lifeless, like some matte.
I also like the fact that evenRead More
I am loving the lipsticks that come in a form of a lip pencil, as they are easy to apply and you don’t need any extra liners or brushes for that. The other day I’ve picked up Maybelline’s ColorDrama Intense Velvet Lip Pencil.
They had so many beautiful colours but 310 Berry Much is the one that stood out for me, this is a very “me” shade. I was actually shopping with a friend who bought the nude one.
I think this is a fantastic product for the price. The pigmentation is excellent, the colour pay-off is amazing, the colour is gorgeous.
As for the finish, it is just spot-on! It is not a flat matte but, at the same time, not a sheer glossy shade. I’d describe it asRead More
I have already reviewed several shades of Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipsticks in the past and you can see the feature here, and this is the latest addition to the range. Meet 725 Simply Nude – smoky eyes best friend.
The lipstick comes in a gold packaging with a colour matching panel on the bottom.
It is a moisturizing and a fool-proof lipstick formula that glides on easily and smoothly. Colour Elixir contains shea, avocado, aloe butters, and anti-oxidant white tea so it feels comfortable and non-drying on the lips.
It is really low-maintenance. I think you could apply it even without mirror, and since it has that “glossy” lightweight texture and finish, it looks good, as it wears off. And this kind of nude would look nice on a lot of skin tones, asRead More
If you follow me on Instagram, you have already seen this photo of Rouge Bunny Rouge products that I was sent some time ago. And I want to start the series of reviews with the matte eye shadows, as the brand’s eye shadows have a cult status already, and a lot of you often ask me about them.
I actually already have a shade in Blackpepper Jay, and here are:
- SWEET DUST SERIEMA, “semi-opaque cool dusty mauve taupe”
- BASHFUL FLAMINGO, “semi-opaque pale powder-pink, looking ultra natural and fresh on the eye”
Bashful Flamingo is a great under-the brow highlighter to make your eye brows more groomed and defined, it is also a great shade to be used all over the lid to even out the skin tone. It works as a perfect “base” for other shades.
Sweet Dust Seriema is aRead More
