Another month, another “Top 5” from one of my favourite brands. And this time it’s all about Daniel Sandler Cosmetics.
For those who are new to the line, I’d describe it a brand with high-performing and great quality products that cost less than your “luxury brand products” but deliver the same results. Plus there are quite a few unique and innovative offerings.
So here is what I’ve chosen. Please note that the photos are taken in direct sunlight.
1.Invisible Radiance Foundation and Concealer
I have mentioned this product so many times already that, I think, you all know by now how much I like it. It is definitely one of the best “base” products I have tried. It works amazing for my dry skin – evens out the skin tone and gives a beautiful glowing/dewy finish. To read a detailed review click here.
2. Watercolour Blushers
These are unique liquid blushers that are absolutely fantastic. I have written about them so many times, that I’ll just include the links, so that you can read everything you need to know and see the swatches here, here and here. I also have tips from Daniel himself on how you can use his most famous creation!
3. Watercolour Creme Rouge
I really love the new Escape to Hollywood Autumn/Winter 2012 makeup collection by Daniel Sandler cosmetics. I think it has to be my favourite one so far actually!
This collection was inspired by the 50’s and 60’s glamorous Hollywood beauties, think Sophia Loren and Lauren Bacall.
My personal favourite has to be Polychromatic Eyeshadow in Lava, it looks perfect to me. The other eye shadow is Sheer Satin Eyeshadow in Burnt Sand and it looks great, too. Each eye shadow retails for £10.25.
For the lips, you get a gorgeous Luxury Matte Lipstick in Red Carpet £13.25.
And there are also two other products to create the look: Jumbo Jet Mascara (£14.75) and Watercolour Crème Bronzer in Riviera (£15.50). I bet the bronzer is amazing as I have the the Watercolour Crème blush and it is fantastic.
Here is a face chart of the look and some tips from Daniel himself:

Here is what Daniel recommends: “Embrace the brightness of both eye Shadow shades whatever the colour of your iris, though I love to highlight the Blues tones of an eye with Caribbean and the Browns with Encounter.”

I just love bright pink blush for winter months (and not only) as it really brightens the face and makes you look healthy and pretty!
So I’ve picked up three bright pink blushers that I have to show you.
NYX Cream Blush in Hot Pink , no7 Blooming Pink and Daniel Sandler Hot Pink.
This is the brightest and the most pigmented blush. You really need the tiniest amount of it, I think it would work great on the darker skin tones but you can still wear it if you have fair skin tone like I do. NYX’s Hot Pink is also the warmest of all three. You get a lot of product for the price. Read a more details review here.
No7 Vital Brights Cream Blush in Blooming Pink
This one is a Limited Edition for Spring so you better get it now if you want one. The texture is cream-to-powder and it really reminds me of the amazing YSL blushes. Colour wise, it’s a
Here is a preview of Daniel Sandler’s Spring 2012 makeup collection called Spring Sunset.
Here is what Daniel himself says:
“My Spring Sunset colour collection will enhance a woman’s natural beauty by using tones that Mother Nature herself creates. These unusual yet flattering shades haven’t been seen for ages and they’re perfect for creating the new “no makeup” makeup trend seen on the S/S 2012 runway at shows such as Nicole Farhi and Jaeger.”
