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.
So here is what I would go for and why:
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.

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.
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
I know that I am ‘supposed’ to write about the sweet pastel shades as it is Spring…
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
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.
This is the lipstick that I was wearing for my Birthday which actually says a lot. I absolutely adore the
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?
