I was away for ten days visiting my family and friends and I did not use Internet or my phone 95% of the time. It was the best decision ever, as I could truly enjoy the holidays and now I am back to work/blog/life well rested and motivated.
I was catching up on some blogs I follow and loved reading “The Best of 2012” features, I should definitely post it myself. But in the meanwhile, here are the makeup products I had with me, and some of them are my all time favourites actually.
Omorovicza Complexion Perfector BB SPF 20 which I took in a small pot helped my skin to look flawless, I’ve also had my trusted Touche Eclat by YSL with me, as well, as Jouer’s Age Repairing Concealer in 3 Cameo.
Sienna X’s Cream To Powder Bronzer & Illuminator is a product I haven’t featured before but I do like it a lot and will definitely post about it soon.
First of all, I had my Benefit’s eye brow pencil, as I am never without it. Anastasia’s Genius Top Coat and three of my all time favourite eye shadows: Rouge Bunny Rouge Long Lasting Eye Shadow in Bejewelled Skylark, Daniel Sandler Polychromatic Eyeshadow in Lava and Inglot Eye Shadows AMC Shine 37.
For some reason I had three brown eye pencils with me, I love me some brown:
The one that I use almost every day – Lancome’s Le Crayon Khol in Brun Noir, Daniel Sandler Long Lasting Waterproof Eyeliner in Brown Velvet and Laura Marcier Kohl Eye Pencil in Brown Copper.
I also had two products from one of my favourite brands – Illamasqua: Masquara and Pure Pigment in Ore.
I did not want to take a lot of lip products to save space, so I’ve chosen very carefully the following items:
Jouer’s Lip Enhancer Conditioning Lip Treatment to keep my lips in a good condition.
Sheer plum shade which is Carmex Moisture Plus in Plum, sheer nude – Clarins’ Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector 03 Nude Shimmer (every girl should try it!) and Bobbi Brown’s High Shimmer Lip Gloss in Oyster, my recent addiction.
And, possibly, my favourite red lipstick – Lancome’s L’Absolu Rouge in 160 Rouge Hypnose. It was a limited edition but you can still find it, I think.
Here are the swatches of the eye and lip products:
Bourjois Dark Purple, Rouge Bunny Rouge Raven, Clarins 3-Dot, Lancome Brun Noir, Daniel Sandler Brown Velvet, Laura Mercier Brown Copper, Inglot AMC Shine 37, DS Lava, RBR Bejewelled Skylark, Artdeco Veuve Noir, Illamasqua Ore, Bobbi Brown Oyster, Carmex Plum, Clarins Nude Shimmer, Lancome Rouge Hypnose.
By the way, I did not wear makeup on a daily basis, just for the New Year party and several dinners.
It is nice to be back and I hope you’ve a a fantastic time during the holiday season, as well! x
