MakeUp4All AUTUMN 2011 Online Beauty Magazine

I have already reviewed Clarins eye shadows from their summer collection but I have two more products to share about.

Clarins Summer Collection Bronzer and Lip Oil Review and Swatches 1

The product that I really love is Clarins Blush & Bronzing Compact (£30). It is absolutely huge, comes in a nice packaging and with a decently sized mirror. You get three shades of bronzer with one being  shimmery and two  – matte, there is also an  apricot blush. You can use each shade individually, or mix. The texture of the blush is softer than the texture of the bronzers so when products are mixed together they give you that nice luminous glow and created that sun-kissed effect. This bronzer actually made it to my monthly favourites.

Although I have pretty light skin tone, I don’t find it to be muddy or too orange on me. But I use it lightly, obviously.

I think Blush & Bronzing Compact is a

A Week in Lipsticks

Recently I was talking a lot about lipsticks with some girls I work with, and this inspired me to wear a different shade each day for a month. I wear the same ones over, and over again but considering how many I have it was about time to change my habit.  So here are the ones I wore last week…

A week in lipsticks Makeup4all

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Transylvania (lip swatch)

I am obsessed with it, as you may know, I have to stop myself from wearing it every single day. It is the most perfect vampy (Hey, Drac! yes, I absolutely had to do it) shade.  Whenever I wear it – I am always asked about it. The formula is not too drying and can be applied evenly.  This is the most affordable product from the selection and there are tonnes of other colours in the line.

Illamasqua Intense Lipgloss in Boost (review and lip  swatch)

Technically this is not a lipstick but, as the name suggests, it is pretty intense when layered so I’ve included it, too. It smells of sweets, feels moisturising on and is the most unique shade out of these all, a violet with a blue base, so beautiful.

I know so many women obsessed with Lanolips, and rightly so!  And don’t forget the numerous awards…

These are the lip balms that contain 60% Ultra Medical Grade Lanolin,  natural oils, shea butter and Vitamin E and they are truly wonderful. I’ve included them in my December favourites, but this is the second winter I am using/loving these balms actually. So, I have no idea how I never wrote a proper feature.

Lanolips Lip Ointment in Rhubarb and Dark Honey Review and Swatches

The balms come in sheer plastic tubes with a golden lid and a cute sheep, I also like the simple design and the fronts used.

As for the product itself, Lanolips feel nice (like a thick lip balm) and soothing on, I personally love them in colder months as they protect the lips perfectly and they do work when it comes to chapped lips.  They also contain SPF15 which is a great bonus.

You can get a clear option or with fruity scent but I have the tinted ones. There are five colour options to choose from and

If you follow me on Instagram, you could already see a preview of some Rouge Bunny Rouge products that I was sent for  a review, so here is a long time promised feature about their Glassy Gloss Sweet Excess  gorgeous glosses.

There are six shades in the range, and I actually have five of them. The missing shades is CHERRY CLAFOUTIS which is described as a “gloss version of the ‘Scrumptiously Devious’ lipstick, sheer blue based cool pink with a warm golden opalescence”. And I actually have a review of the lipstick here.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Glassy Gloss Sweet Excess Review and Swatches

The shades I have are (descriptions from Rouge Bunny Rouge):

FLEUR PARFAIT, Cushiony-soft semi-opaque mauve pink, with subtle silver highlights

MOUSSE FANDANGO, Dark tone of milky pink with barest whispers of grayish mauve and touch of silver micro pearls

RAHAT LOKUM, Pale milky pink with medium-heavy mother of pearl effect micro-shimmer

RASPBERRY MERINGUE, Pale pink with very soft mother of pearl micro-shimmer – this shade doesn’t yield a strong colour, but it makes lips naturally pretty

RHUBARB CUSTARD, Semi sheet coverage milky nude rosewood – irreplaceable my-lips-but-better colour

My personal favourite is  Raspberry Meringue which is actually always in my handbag. It is a gorgeous cool-toned pink with micro-shimmer. Love me some sparkles!

The other shade that I use a lot is  Rahat Lokum which is heavier on the shimmer and warmer in tone. I am actually wearing it as I type.

Rhubarb Custard is a great option for those who like “nude” lip glosses. It is a creamy and balmy every day kind of shade. No shimmer.

As for Mousse Fandango – RBR have a really

My friends ask me all the time about my favourite high-street makeup products, and I have realized that I haven’t posted a top 5 [affordable makeup products] feature in ages (See previous ones here and here)… So here we go!

September 2015 My Current Top 5 Affordable Makeup Products makeup4all

Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in Alluring Rose (review and cheek swatches)

If I had to choose only one product out of these – it’d be the blush. Regular readers know how many blushes I own, and the fact that I’ve barely touched any other  in months says it all. Creme Puff Blushes are dreamy! Soft and creamy, they blend beautifully and look gorgeous on the skin. I am a convert, and I have recommended it to a lot of my girlfriends, too. There are six shades in the range and I have swatches of three (click the link above). I can’t recommend these enough!
