Regular readers will know how much I love Watercolour blushers from Daniel Sandler. In fact, I have written a very detailed review of them with tips from Daniel himself.
So this feature will be mostly about the new shades, and not an in-depth review. And there is a kit of four colours! It retails for £49.50 while a single shade is £16.50 which makes each shade from the kit retail for £12.3!
So what are you getting?
- Moonglow, sheer, pearlescent white highlighter
- Sun Glow, a warm, golden bronze illuminator
- Luxe, a delicate, matte peach
- Pop, a medium toned, matte pink
Each bottle is 15ml.
My personal favourite shade is
Since I’ve posted about the highlighters recently, I have realized that I haven’t mentioned the new shade of one of my favourite Rouge Bunny Rouge products, their Eyes Wide Open Brightening Liner Duo yet, and it was launched several months ago.
I wrote a very detailed review of the original shade here, so this post will be more about comparing the two shades.
In a nutshell, this is a brilliant brightening and highlighting multi-tasking pencil with a creamy and smooth texture, it can be used both on the eyes, and face, I also tried mixing it with lip products.
The new shade is called GLACIER FLOWER and the
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
I’ve wanted theBalm luminizers for as long as I remember (and by that I mean since they came out). I have swatched them several times at the counter but couldn’t make up my mind on which one to get, and I could not justify getting all three considering how many products I already have.
This is why when I saw The Manizers palette – I simply had to get it. This is a limited edition, as far as I know, so get it while you can. Yes, the single powders come in that gorgeous packaging but this cardboard one is perfectly fine. It is sturdy and slim.
So what is so special about these powders?
First of all the texture, it is very smooth, soft and buttery, almost creamy, it melts into the skin. The pigmentation is also brilliant, you only need one swipe. It is no wonder these babies are so loved by all the beauty enthusiasts.
Let’s take a closer look:
This is a gorgeous warm-toned golden highlighter. And it is not subtle by any means, it gives you a proper glow, instantly brightens and perks up the complexion. Use it on top of the cheek bones, upper lip and under the brow bone. It may be too intense for some people for a day time but if you love you some luminosity – it is perfection.
If you are interested in contouring but don’t want to spend a fortune on a product – Maybelline Master Sculpt Contouring Palette is a great option to consider and here is why.
You get both a contour shade and a highlighter.
If cool-toned contouring shades don’t look good on your skin tone – this would be a great option, as it is warmer than most products but at the same time it doesn’t look orange on the face. It warms up the complexion. The highlighter is also warm toned and it contains golden micro-shimmer in it.
The texture is creamy and soft, you get a
