Revisited: If You Could Use Only 3 Makeup Products

I was browsing Makeup4all the other day, and stumbled across this post from 2010. The point was to choose only three products I could use for my makeup. I was actually surprised by my choices, so thought I would do the same thing six years later.

If You Could Use Only 3 Makeup Products revisited mascara eye liner and blusher

So here is what I would go for and why:

Eye liner (ArtDeco Long Lasting Liquid Liner 01 Black)

I just have to have some kind of definition for my eyes, black liquid eye liner or a brown eye pencil, or even some eye shadows. But if I could use only one product- that would be this. These days I am loving ArtDeco, but there are lots of other nice ones I like.

Mascara ( Max Factor Voluptuous False Lash Effect Mascara, review coming later)

NYX Cream Blush in Hot Pink Review, Photos and Swatches

It’s not a secret that I love luxury cream (liquid and gel, too) blushes so for me it’s a great investment. But  some of the readers asked me to review several  affordable blushes.

I’ve already reviewed Max Factor and Maybelline blushes so now it’s time for NYX. I have to say that I’ve got this blush specially for the review.
The shade that I have is called Hot Pink and let me tell you, it is really hot! The colour is very bright and extremely pigmented so if you have a light skin tone  – be very careful with the application. You will need the tiniest amount of this product.

The price in the UK is £9.95 but in the Sates it’s much cheaper and retails for $6.50 only. You get a pretty big blush for your money, here is just the comparison with Max Factor’s one.

It is easy to use this blush, the texture is nice and I like the way it blends; you can get a natural finish if you blend it well. This particular shade looks great on

ArtDeco Dita Von Teese Blusher in Starlet Pink 31 Review and Swatches

Here is a final review of the Dita von Teese The Classics makeup collection, I have already reviewed lipstick and some eye products and now it’s time for a blush.

I have a shade which is called Starlet Pink and it is a bright blue based pink. It instantly brightens up the face and makes you look healthier and fresher, just make sure you don’t use too much.

The quality is really great, it is smooth and applies nicely plus it is easy to blend and looks natural on the cheeks.

In my opinion, this is a great budget variant for around £10 (get it for £10.25 at Tender Loving Skincare).

Powder blushers never stay on me for the whole day, and

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

Benefit Benetint Review and Swatches

Today I want to tell you about a famous Benefit product which is called Benetint and which is a rose-tinted lip & cheek stain. I love  cream and liquid products so it’s not a surprise that I loved this one. I also like that you can use this one for lips and cheeks, yay for multipurpose!

I have a mini sized Benetint which I got in one of the famous Benefit sets.

So how does it work on your cheeks?

Use several drops on your cheeks and be sure that you blend them very fast until they drie. The good thing is that it doesn’t move at all and stays on for a very long time. It also gives you a very natural effect. This is a perfect product for winter because it gives you the natural blush as  if you just came from a lovely walk in a snowy park (Oh, I can’t wait for such walks)!

How does it work on the lips?

The effect that Benetint gives
