Clarins Gloss Prodige in 09 Water Lily Review and Lip Swatches. Rave

Clarins lip balms/glosses are among my favourites and I rate them highly!

I have actually already written about all of the ranges the brand has, except the Prodige Gloss.

You can read about  Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balms, Colour Quench Lip Balms and my favourite Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector.

So now it’s time for  Gloss Prodige (£15.50) and it’s the shade from the Spring 2013 collection which is called Water Lily.

As all other Clarins glosses, this one is very “balmy”, it feels very hydrating (the formula contains hyaluronic acid) and moisturizing on the lips, without being too heavy or sticky. I find that such formula/texture is perfect for cold weather, as it helps to keep my lips in a good condition.

Prodige Gloss comes in a beautiful package, very high-end, and has a sponge applicator that bends.  This gloss has a strong fruity scent, which I personally like, but some may not.   It is written that it’s blackberry and

ArtDeco Lip Laquer 40 Rosy Tribute Review and Lip Swatches

I want to show you a beautiful Lip Laquer   from  ArtDeco . It comes in a black tube which looks simple and chic, just the way I like it.

I also love the sponge applicator which it comes with. I personally find that it allows an easy  and even application without a lip brush or lip liner.  But you may want to use a brush.

As for the texture, it gives a very nice high coverage of the  lipstick and the shiny, glossy and creamy finish of the gloss. It’s basically like a non-sticky liquid lipstick. I realy love it.

I don’t find the

Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush Review and Swatches

If you read Makeup4all for some time now, you’ve probably noticed that I love cream/liquid/gel blushes and most of the time they are quite expensive. Well, luxurious blushes is something that I really like.

But is there a chance to get a great product for an affordable price? YES, there is! Today I want to tell you about the Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy Blushes.

These are tiny and you can see how they look like when placed in my hand. I actually really love the size because it’s so easy to take the blush with you. But despite the size, it will take you forever to finish this product. You will need the smallest amount of these, especially when you have fair or light skin. I use just one or two dabs for both cheeks and that’s enough!

The shades that I have are called 18 Soft Cardinal and 09 Soft Murano  and here they are: natural light and flash.

Guerlain Rouge G Serie Noir Jewel Lipstick Compact For Spring 2011 Swatches

It is my Birthday this Sunday so I though I’d get myself something nice. By something nice I usually mean luxury makeup.

I also wanted to try Shellac (better late than never right?) so I did get a manicure. A red one! I will write a post about it in 2 weeks.  Now the only thing that is left – get my hair done but I can’t think of what I want. I don’t want any huge changes…

But back to the makeup. I wanted to get some Chanel and Guerlain but guess what? ALL products that I’ve wanted to get were out of stock!!! Unbelievable.

Most of all I wanted to get 2 shades from the Guerlain Spring range but the 2 shades that I wanted were sold out!
