I am sure that most of you are familiar with the original, and cult, Carmex balms. And today I want to show you the Carmex Moisture Plus SPF 15 Hydrating Lip Balm. It comes in three variations: clear, sheer pink and sheer coral.
I have the one in Sheer Pink.
Although the packaging is nothing exciting the main things is the product inside, right?
You can definitely feel a tingling sensation once you apply the product which I personally quite like, especially in the summer. This balm is hydrating and nourishing, indeed. In fact, I have asked some of my friends to try it, as well, to give me their opinion, and they all agreed.
As for the colour, it
I’ve wanted to try Inglot’s Body Sparkles for quite a long time but I couldn’t figure out which shade to get but finally I made up my mind and got the #54.
I couldn’t make up my mind because they all are so SO gorgeous. Most of them have a very subtle iridescent shimmer but some contain fine glitter. In the jars they make look very similar (although they are not on the website) but they give you a different frosty shade. I was kind of torn apart but finally got the one with warm toned, golden peach shimmer.
So here is how it looks like in the jar
As these are body sparkles you can use them all over your body and I personally like using it on my eyes. It looks gorgeous used over a primer with a liner and mascara. But you can also use it over the cream eye shadows for a pretty shimmery effect of press over the powder eye shadows for the dimensional look.
And this is how it looks like inside.
Lets take a look at the swatches
This shade instantly caught my attention and made me think of my favourite eye shadows ever, Rouge Bunny Rouge Bejewelled Skylark so I had to pick it up.
Look how pretty it is in the sunshine!
It is exactly the kind of shade that I love with a beautiful delicate shimmer, it looks stunning. As for the quality, it is brilliant: the colour can be applied rather sheer or can be built up, it blends out beautifully, does not crease, fall out or smudge on me.
I have been wearing it non stop paired with this
Foundation that made it’s début at Victoria Beckham’s (AW14) show; with the look created by Pat McGrath? Need I say more? I am in!
What foundation was that? Max Factor’s Skin Luminizer. I was sent one of the shades, so here are my thoughts:
The packaging is made of plastic, which may not look or feel so chic as my favourite, sadly discontinued Second Skin, but it is very handy for travelling and taking it with you, it is very light.
The pump is very well made, it dispenses even a very small amount of product so you don’t waste any.
What about the foundation itself?
It has a
I already made a preview of 5 black eye shadows that I like and NARS Single Eye Shadow in Night Clubbing was one of them.
I have to say that NARS eye shadows are one of the best shadows on the market and it is not only my opinion!
Why is it like that? Well, the answer is very simple, they are perfect!
What do I mean?! Here are only some reasons why you may like NARS shadows:
- They come in a great package, nice simple logo and an elegant black design.
- The pigmintation of the product is amazing, you need only a tiny amount of it.
- The shadows don’t smudge, crease or “magically disappear” from your lids.
- Great variety of colours and a lot of them are unique, I personally really like the shadows from “Night Serie”.
- It is a pleasure to work this these shadows: they are soft and it’s not a problem to blend them. You can also layer the shadows for more intense look.
- Honesly, I could go on and on because I can see only good things in this product.
