MakeUp4All AUTUMN 2011 Online Beauty Magazine

I am loving the lipsticks that come in a form of a lip pencil, as they are easy to apply and you don’t need any extra liners or brushes for that. The other day I’ve picked up Maybelline’s ColorDrama Intense Velvet Lip Pencil.

They had so many beautiful colours but 310 Berry Much is the one that stood out for me, this is a very “me” shade. I was actually shopping with a friend who bought the nude one.

I think this is a fantastic product for the price.  The pigmentation is excellent, the colour pay-off is amazing, the colour is gorgeous.

As for the finish, it is just spot-on! It is not a flat matte but, at the same time, not a sheer glossy shade. I’d describe it as

I have already reviewed several shades of Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipsticks in the past and you can see the feature here, and this is the latest addition to the range. Meet 725 Simply Nude – smoky eyes best friend.

The lipstick comes in a gold packaging with a colour matching panel on the bottom.

It is a moisturizing and a fool-proof lipstick formula that glides on easily and  smoothly. Colour Elixir contains shea, avocado, aloe butters, and anti-oxidant white tea so it feels comfortable and non-drying on the lips.

It is really low-maintenance.  I think you could apply it even without mirror, and since it has that “glossy” lightweight texture and finish, it looks good, as it wears off. And this kind of nude  would look nice on a lot of skin tones, as

My Top 3 Sheer Red Lipsticks for Beginners

Recently several girlfriends asked me about  wearable/”beginners” red. So I thought I’d write about it here, as some of you may be interested in this topic, too.

Althought I personally love matte  full-on red, I perfectly understand that not everyone is ready for it. This is why sheer formulas may be a good option to begin with.

I have chosen three that I love. And these all are high-end. Why? Well, if you buy a “cheap” red, you will always find an excuse not to wear it. But if you invest in a luxury lipstick – you’d have to. And, let’s face it, who doesn’t love beautiful things?

Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfectors are probably the best lip balms/glosses ever. This is why their newest  Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector for Spring 2015 are  a great addition to the line.

These are basically rich and creamy balms that moisturize the lips and give a beautiful tint.  I’d say that they give more colour than the original lip perfectors.

I personally really love the packaging and the design.  You can definitely tell that it’s a high-end lip balm.

I was sent the shades:

01 Rose, It  is the same shade as the first original Lip Perfector that I’ve bought several years ago. A pretty every day pink. You can never go wrong with it.

03 My Pink which is just like Clarins Lip Balm Crayon reacts with the

Rouge Bunny Rouge re-launched all their lipsticks and I have already showed a preview here but it’s time to take a closer look.

It is interesting how I was recently reading about a “lipstick wardrobe” that  every girl should have, and I think that RBR nailed it with their shade selection. Here we go…
