Lancome Blush Subtil in Aplum and Cedar Rose Review and Swatches

I have to say that I am a huge fan of cream products: blushes, highlighters, shadows, liners etc. And I am also a big fan of blushes. And, yes, I love cream blushes but there are several powder blushes that I really like.

So today I want to tell you about the  powder blush that I totally love. And it is Blush Subtil by Lancome. This is how it looks like on the promo picture and I am showing you a promo picture because my blushes are in a set.

This is how 2  blushes that I’ve got look like:

  • Aplum
  • Cedar Rose

Why do I like this blush so much?

  • First of all it is oil free which is very good, especially for summer.
  • It is matte, so it won’t look horrible on your pores. And to be honest, I don’t really understand how can anyone like very shiny/with shimmer blushes and bronzers.
  • Because it’s matte it gives you a natural finish.
  • It’s easy to work with this blush and  it’s easy to blend it.
  • These particular blushes are from

Benefit ChaCha Tint Review, Photos and Swatches

After playing with my new ChaCha Tint for some time I can finally write my thoughts about the product.

It should be available here very soon now, but it’s already available in the US for $29 (for 12.5 ml). I’ve asked my friend to get me this set which was an amazing deal in May.

To tell the truth, I didn’t even plan to get the ChaCha Tint, as I  want to get try the Posie Tint finally but I couldn’t miss such a great deal since I was getting some products from the US back then anyway.

I have to say that I really regret that I never ordered this set, I have no idea what I was thinking about.

But back to the ChaCha Tint… I really like the  design and the package, it is so Benefit and looks great for summer.

It is described as a mango-tinted stain for lips and cheeks and  I agree with the description. It’s just a shame that it doesn’t smell like mango, too.

I know that that the formula is compared to the Posie Tint and according to swatches I can also see some similarities. But, as I have only Benetint, I can say that ChaCha has a thicker and more gel-like consistency.

The colour looks really intense in the bottle and it really is, so you have to blend it out really well, especially if you have a fair skin like I do. I assume that it would look great on the  dark skin tones and I can’t wait to try it on tanned and dark skin tones.

How to apply it?

As it is a stain, I would recommend

Sleek Cosmetics Berry Collection Review and Swatches

I know that I am ‘supposed’ to write about the sweet pastel shades as it is Spring…

But I just want to show you this set from Sleek which is still available (I’ve just checked) and which is their ‘Christmas collection’. I just had to get it as the colours are very beautiful!

This set is called the Berry collection, retails for £10/€12 and includes three berry products:

  • Fenberry blush, crimson rose
  •  Kohl Pencil  Mossberry, a deep burgundy
  • True Colour lipstick in Cranberry, a matte mulled wine  colour

Now I have pretty mixed feelings about this set. Although I LOVE it a lot, there are things that I don’t like that much.

Fenberry blush

This is my first blush from Sleek and I really like the quality: pigmentation, staying power and the shade are amazing. I am definitely getting more blushes from them in the future. Have you seen their amazing trio blushes?

Kohl Pencil Mossberry

This is actually  a wearable shade although it may look scary to some people. This liner was the main reason why I wanted the set to badly.  It is not the softest liner and it does not ‘glide on’ plus doesn’t have the most amazing staying power but I love it anyway. If you are afraid of the shade – try adding a thin black line on top and lots of mascara! It would look amazing on green eyes but I love it on my (brown) eyes, too.

True Colour lipstick in Cranberry

This is the lipstick that I was wearing for my Birthday which actually says a lot. I absolutely adore  the
