I’ve posted about the 2-in-1 cheek and lip products, and about Rouge Bunny Rouge sending me all the shades of their new gorgeous Blush Wands FLOWERS & PORTRAITS (which were already featured in my summer favourites) on my Insta a while ago. So here is finally a review with swatches.
I am a big fan of the brand anyway but this launch was something else, I literally love everything about it. First of all, the RBR play it classy and name their products after the great artists ( I am the biggest fan of Vrubel and Klimt btw), which, as a person who has a degree in culture and arts, I really appreciate.
Also, they stay true to themselves and release that chic decadent packaging with a big attention to the detail. The fact that the outer packaging was red this time made me very happy indeed. In my opinion, when it comes to luxury beauty, every little detail counts, and RBR are well aware of it.
This is a
Brows are huge now. Just like back in the 90s most of us were after that “the thinner – the better” look, today, it seems, that it’s the opposite. While I did indulge in over-plucking then, I will not be overdrawing my brows or getting them micro-bladed now [They grew back , and I am happy with how they look]. Even a few years ago it was hard to find good shades and products for brows, unless it was a pro brand, now even a high street one would suggest a 3-or-more steps eye brow routine.
And while I personally have a lot of different products: pomades, shadows, liners, all sorts of pencils, I prefer a very thin eye brow pencil. That is to use on myself. I love a dark and relatively thick eye liner so thick and dark eye brows, on top of that, would be an overkill for my face.
This is why NYX Micro Brow Pencil in Ash Brown is probably my favourite eye brow product now. It is
I shared about these gorgeous lipsticks over at my Insta ages ago so here is finally an in-depth feature.
Rouge Bunny Rouge Tinted Luxe Balm ENCHANTING BLOOMS are gorgeous tinted balms for lipstick-phones. You get a juicy and glossy hint of colour and the comfortable moisturising and hydrating texture of a balm. 2-in-1, hello!
And, let me tell you, they looks so so good on during the warmer seasons. I suppose this is why it took me so long to write this feature, as I personally prefer a full-on matte finish in colder months. While now the balms look insane with that fresh glowy summer makeup, they are just that finishing touch. Plumping and radiant effect is guaranteed. The lipsticks are
Let me introduce you to my [current] favourite eye shadow palette. This was a gift from one of my girlfriends a while ago, and I have been using it ever since.
You get a great selection of shades in this palette from matte nudes to gorgeous and fun metallics. I wore every single shade numerous times, and they all can be toned down or played up. And the quality is exceptional, all shades are pigmented, butter-smooth, silky and easy to blend.
The mattes are never chalky and the glittery shades are refined and exquisite.
Basically, this palette is very inspiring, you just look at it, and want to try different shades and play with it. And I don’t remember when was the last time I could be bothered to apply more than two shades on my eye lids. Not anymore. I love layering mattes with metallics on top especially.
The shades are:
In a second feature for the mascara week I thought it’d be great to talk about two hyped up mascaras and share my impression about each. Spoiler alert: I am a huge fan of one and really dislike the other, no matter how much I’ve tried to like it. One more important thing – I have tried both mascaras not only on myself. I’ve also paid for both.
Here we go…
This mascara is absolutely brilliant, it lives up to the “Superhero” name. It is an all-in-one formula, your lashes are instantly transformed. We are talking ultra black, long and super voluminous results.
I’ve also read that this product contains “lash-lifting polymers, volumising collagen, strengthening biotin, proteins and peptides” to condition the lashes. I am a huge effect of this mascara as it is so that is like a great bonus.
You get great fabulous results with any sorts of lashes but if yours are
