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 that
I can’t believe that I forgot to write about one of my favourite makeup products of this summer.
It’s a bronzer… And I am talking about Yves Saint Laurent’s Terre Saharienne Bronzing Powder (£31) in N° 5 Cinnamon Sand.
It comes in a velvet pouch, the design of the palette is warm brown.
It is such a shame that the YSL logo is almost gone by now, I really loved it.
Cinnamon Sand is a medium shade, there are two more: N° 4 Apricot Sand and N° 6 Bronze Sand.
I find that the shade that I have is perfect for light to medium skin tones as it is not dark but not too light. The shade is buildable so you can make it more intense. It is not orange at all and looks
For those of you who don’t know – YSL are launching the new version of their quints, and you can take a look here.
But today I want to tell you about one of their duos – YSL Ombres Duolumieres Jaune Ardent/Bleu Torride, and this lill’ palette is just perfect for summer, as you get a blue, and a yellow!
Let’s take a look…
The colours are very beautiful, and are true to what you see in the packaging. You can get a sheer wash of colour, or build up the intensity by layering, using over primer or with a damp brush or sponge. The sponges that come on the palette are actually great for packing on shadows.
I personally love using the blue on top of any blue eye shadow with a lot of mascara, it looks great on brown eyes. Or with a damp thin brush an eye liner. Yellow could be used for a
I’ve got the mini size of Lancome Cils Booster XL Super-Enhancing Mascara Base with my Lancome purchase the other day. I am a huge fan of Lancome mascaras so, obviously, I was curious about this base.
This is what Lancome says:
“The magic behind this mascara base is the conditioning formula—featuring micro-fibers and Vitamin E – to add extra length and thickness to your lashes for added visible performance to your mascara.”
It does give a better volume and length. The lashes
You know what?! It’s pretty cool to have a makeup wishlist and stick to it. I can’t say that I get only things that are on my wishlist, sometimes I let myself buy other things but this helps me to control myself!
I also wanted to find a lipstick that would look like my most favourite gloss which is Chanel Glossimer in Mica and I believe that I’ve found it. And it is YSL Rouge Pur Shine in #11 Pink Diamond. I didn’t get it yet (but will do it ) but I swatched it for you. As well as 2 other shades that I liked but from the Rouge Pur range.
So what is written about those lipsticks?
“Yves Saint Laurent ROUGE PUR SHINE SPF15 is a shiny lipstick with exceptional gliding properties. It illuminates the lips with sparkling, transparent color, perfect for your “light makeup” days. The hydrating texture ensures comfort and protection for hydrated, shiny, shimmering lips.”
