MakeUp4All AUTUMN 2011 Online Beauty Magazine

I was browsing Makeup4all the other day, and stumbled across this post from 2010. The point was to choose only three products I could use for my makeup. I was actually surprised by my choices, so thought I would do the same thing six years later.

If You Could Use Only 3 Makeup Products revisited mascara eye liner and blusher

So here is what I would go for and why:

Eye liner (ArtDeco Long Lasting Liquid Liner 01 Black)

I just have to have some kind of definition for my eyes, black liquid eye liner or a brown eye pencil, or even some eye shadows. But if I could use only one product- that would be this. These days I am loving ArtDeco, but there are lots of other nice ones I like.

Mascara ( Max Factor Voluptuous False Lash Effect Mascara, review coming later)

Can you actually believe that it is May, the fifth month of the year?! Time flies, it feels as if it was 1st of January only yesterday.  And this month I actually have quite a few products, including some amazing new discoveries.

Max Factor Glossfinity Nail Polish in 85 Cerise (review and swatches)

I have already finished a bottle of this, and am going through my second one, and I am wearing this, as I type, too. Such a gorgeous vibrant, juicy and glossy warm-toned red, it brightens up any look, and (almost) any mood. I am a fan.

For complexion I have been using these two products almost daily: Diorskin Nude Skin-Glowing Make-Up in Ivory (review and face swatches) Rouge Bunny Rouge Naked Disguise Concealer in Castalia.

Dior’s foundation is simply brilliant, it is a re-discovery for me. I like the coverage it gives and the finish, it is not matte but not too dewy either.  The shade, Ivory is the lightest in the range, and looks great even on my currently greenish pale and tired complexion. As for the concealer, I plan on writing a detailed feature about it soon. Surprisingly, I have already used half of the tube, and the love is going strong.  It gives just  the kind of coverage I like – the formula is not thick but it brightens up the under eye area.

Other products I have been using all the time are Inglot  Sculpting HD Powder in 504 (review) which I talk about non-stop, as it is my favourite product for adding

Regular readers know that I am a hand cream fanatic, and I have written so many features on the ones I like during these seven years. The latest post was on Aveeno and Neal’s Yard Remedies, along with cheaper alternatives from Nivea and Garnier. Here is also a selection of my top 5 hand creams (which probably should be revisited).

And here are my latest discoveries…

Hand Creams Soap and Glory Hand Food and & Other Stories Couture Carnival Hand Lotion

& Other Stories Couture Carnival Hand Lotion 

I am so in love with this lotion that I have bought two bottles!  The beautiful minimalistic Scandinavian design, the convenient pump, the light and non-greasy but, at the same time, moisturizing texture.  And the smell. Oh, the smell of it!

I mean, you can’t go wrong with with something described as “rainbow

Max Factor Glossfinity nail polish in 85 Cerise was an impulse purchase  but I love it so much that I recently bought a second bottle, as I’ve used up the first one. And that says a lot, considering how many nail polishes I have, and red ones in particular.

It is a gorgeous glossy warm toned red which  looks opaque even with one coat. It is like the coolest accessory for your nails, it brightens up everything. As dramatic as it sounds – Cerise makes me feel incredible, and I never want to be without it.

I have mentioned it so many times but somehow never posted a proper swatch, so here it is. (I am also wearing it here)

Irresistible Me Hair Extensions Review

Writing beauty features gives the opportunity to try and  share about a lot of things you wouldn’t otherwise, and it is great. For example, I was sent some hair extensions for a review. And it was a really cool experience considering I’ve never tried extensions before.

The ones I have are called Irresistible Me, which are a 100% remy human hair clip ins. I went for the Chocolate Brown (see all shades here) which is the closest to my natural hair colour. You can also choose the length and the weight. And I’ve chosen the  200 g x 20 inches option.

So here is the before and after, so you can see for yourself. Yes,  I am wearing glasses at home.  Regular readers will know how I hate posting photos of myself on the Internet.

Irresistible Me Hair Extensions Review Makeup4allBefore reviewing the hair in particular, I have to mention that it comes in a really cool black box with some sweet girly writings on it. And it is all about those little things.

As for the  extensions – you get:
