I am a huge fan of Max Factor’s Miracle Touch Creamy Blush, so I was very excited about the launch of their new blushers – Creme Puff. There are six shades and I was sent three of them (and a new mascara).
Let’s take a look.
These are multi-tonal blushes which, when the shades are mixed together, give you a gorgeous shade.
The colours that I have are:
- Lovely Pink, Use this shade for a hint of pink on fair skin
- Alluring Rose, A shade with hints of gold colour; beautiful on warmer or tanned skin
- Gorgeous Berries, Provides a good pop of colour so works really well on darker skin tones
Here is a close up:

Makeup wise, it was pretty much all the same in February, and you can read about all the products here. There is also something very different from me this month – I’ve been loving nude lipsticks (which is a complete shock for me), and I will write a feature about it soon.
There are only two other makeup products that I want to mention:
Illamasqua’s Nail Varnish in Nomad. I wore in for the whole last week of the month, and this gorgeous jade set me in the mood for Spring. Not too pastel but not too bright, it is just perfect.
Max Factor’s Creme Puff Blush in 25 Alluring Rose. This is a shade created for medium and dark skin tones, so on me it looks like a bronzer. It blends out beautifully and gives a gorgeous glow. Look out for the feature about these new blushes this week.
As for the beauty products – I was very stressed and completely out of time in February, so shower time was the ultimate luxury and “me” time when I could just think and reflect on what was going on. I have tonnes of shower products in my tiny bathroom, and have been loving all of them, but twoRead More
I’ve mentioned Bobbi Brown’s Natural Brow Shaper & Hair Touch Up in Slate here, and promised a review, so here it is.
I have been wearing this product in my eye brows for the last three weeks, and totally loving it. Why?
It fills in the gaps, tints the eye brows, gives them more texture, and holds them in place.
Slate is a great cool toned ashy grey, it is probably the best colour match for my eye brows I have ever tried.
The eye brows look natural (I don’t get that wax effect, some products can give), just fuller and more groomed. In fact, I’ve got some compliments [for my eye brows] recently, whichRead More
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?

Last week(s) was very stressful and intense for me, I’ve barely had time for anything (lack of sleep, eating on the go, putting makeup on in a taxi) but I still had to look good. This is why I had to stick to the products that work the best for me, and didn’t have time for any experiments. So here is a selection that I love, that work, and that never let me down.
Makeup wise – my “foundation” of choice was Clarins HydraQuench Tinted Moisturizer which did not enhance any dry patches, and made my skin look glowing. It also helped to even out the skin tone, as I don’t have any major skin problems – this was enough. Bobbi Brown’s Natural Brow Shaper & Hair Touch Up in Slate is also a real gem, it tints the brows and holds them in place. I am addicted to this product , will write a detailed review soon.
Lip colour is the only thing that I’ve been changing, but most of the times that was all about the new Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm Perfectors; 03 My Pink created aRead More
