Lumiere Cosmetics Eyes and Cheeks Products. Review and Swatches. Plus A Face OF The Day

When I was asked if I’d like to try Lumiere Cosmetics I was happy to agree since I haven’t tried that many mineral brands plus I thought that it would be an interesting topic for some readers.

I was sent three eye products, one blush, one bronzing blush and two face powders/foundations.

The great thing is that I could actually choose the colours myself which was pretty amazing. So here is what I’ve got.

As for the eye products, I’ve chosen two Glitz and one Eye Shimmer.

All descriptions of the shades are from the website.

Glitz* in Chocolate Covered Cherries, Medium deep berry brown with LOADS of cherry colored sparkles! And Raspberry Truffle, Medium Deep brown with LOADS of raspberry sparkles!

Eye Shimmer* in Black Cherry, Very rich deepened black cherry, with a low sheen that will intensify when foiled. Exciting alternative for contouring and smokey eye effects. Also very pleasing as a liner.

My impression:

I am

ArtDeco Cream Rouge For Cheeks and Lips in 17 Creamy Mauve Review and Swatches

Remember my post about ArtDeco Cream Rouge For Cheeks and Lips? 

I did pick up one shade – 17 Creamy Mauve. They all were pretty actually but the mauve one was right up my street.

It comes in a beautiful and chic black compact with the packaging which  matches the shade of the blush.

The product  has a  sheer and dewy finish, and is easy to blend into the skin, and you get a beautiful and natural effect.  It gives a subtle wash of colour which can be build up for a more intense effect.

I like this modern kind of texture, since I am not exactly the biggest fan of cream-to-powder blushers on my dry skin. However, this may not be the best formula for oily skin. You can

Clarins Face Contouring Palette & Brush Review and Swatches

I have already posted a preview of the Clarins Face Contouring Palette & Brush on the website and on Instagram, so here is a full review.

As you can tell, contouring is not going anywhere soon, and I was personally excited to try what Clarins have to offer, as they never go wrong with their launches.

It comes in a signature light gold slick packaging, contains three colours: matte beige, bronze and rose to create definition. There is also a brush and a card with useful illustrations on how you could use each shade.

I am personally a huge fan of the brush, it allows a precise application and hugs the curves of the face perfectly. I love applying the products with this brush and then, if needed, blend it out a bit with a fluffier one.

As for the product itself, the formula is plant-enriched, so, as always with Clarins, you get the skincare benefits. The texture is

Favourite Plum Blush Combination for Winter

Regular readers know that I love my blushes… And I would like to show you my favourite blush combination that I have been wearing non-stop recently.  I adore my Amaryllis, but sometimes I just want something different.

Favourite Blush Combination Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush Artdeco Cream Rouge For Cheeks and LipsThis is when my berry/plummy/mauve blushes get some love. I am a fan of such shades for AW, as they look nice with my light skin and dark eyes and hair, they instantly brighten up the complexion and look nice with cool toned pinks and plums that I often wear on my lips.

I really like ArtDeco Cream Rouge For Cheeks and Lips in 17 Creamy Mauve (review), it is such a gorgeous shade but

Bagsy Pretty Cheeks Velvet Blush 02 Velvet Coral Review and Face Swatches

I was sent several bagsy products, and I have already reviewed the lipsticks they have in the line, and today I want to tell you about the blush, which is probably my favourite item from those that I’ve tried.

Bagsy Pretty Cheeks Velvet Blush 02 Velvet Coral Review and Swatches

And here is why…

It comes in the cutest packaging, and with an inspirational quote inside. The product itself is very easy to use thanks for the domed shape which can be applied even on the go, and be blended out with fingers.

As for the texture, it is soft  and velvety, I’d say it is cream-to-powder, the kind of formula most people prefer. It is not too creamy but, at the
