Rouge Bunny Rouge Eyes Wide Open Brightening Liner Duo in Glacier Flower Review and Swatches

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

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

theBalm The Manizer Sisters Palette Review and Swatches. Rave

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:

 

Mary-Lou Manizer

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.

Maybelline Master Sculpt Contouring Palette in 02 Medium Dark Review and Swatches

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.

Great formula

The texture is creamy and soft, you get a

Sienna X Cream To Powder Bronzer And Illuminator Review and Swatches

There are not that many cream bronzers on the market, not that I am the biggest bronzer fan/user, but I do like myself a cream product plus a lot of the readers are!

So I am excited to tell you about the Sienna X Cream To Powder Bronzer And Illuminator which was launched relatively recently.

There are two cream products, bronzer and highlighter.  So here are my thoughts about each.

Bronzer

It is much creamier than the highlighter and I really like the texture of it as it is so easy to blend it into the skin without it looking patchy or streaky, even on my dry skin. While it may look a bit orangey on fair and very light skin complexions, it looks amazing on more tanned/darker skin tones.

It works great for warming up the skin  and, I assume, you could mix it with the foundation to get a sun kissed look, like with Chanel’s Bronze Universel. I’ve just realized that I never tried it that way, although I’ve had this product for a long time already, but will give it a go!

 Illuminator

It has a
