AW14 Affordable New Launches: Topshop, Max Factor and Rimmel

Here is a preview of the best new high-street launches, in my opinion.  Eyes, lips and cheeks category.

Please note that I haven’t tried any of the products yet,  they were selected  because they caught my attention and look promising.

Eyes

Max Factor Excess Shimmer Eye Shadows (£7. 99) These will be available from November from   Boots and Superdrug .

” The Eye Shadows make it ultra-easy thanks to its smart 3D silicone gel formula which holds its high-impact metallic colour pigments in place for up to 12 hours, for intense luminosity and a smooth colour finish that lasts.”

Cheeks

Topshop Cheek Jelly (£7) from here.

Nails Of The Day: Max Factor Max Effect in 45 Fantasy Fire

Last week I was sorting out my nail polish collection, and realized that I never posted about the nail polish (and several other) which I’ve bought over a year ago, and which was a huge  back then.

And I am talking about Max Factor’s Max Effect in 45 Fantasy Fire.

Max Factor Max Effect Nail Polish in 45 Fantasy Fire nail of the day

It is a sheer and very complex blueish purple with reddish shimmer. A total beauty! I even did not paint my nails red this week, just to wear this…

Above you can see me wearing four shades of it. Yes, that is a lot of effort, but luckily those layers are thin and dry very quickly so you don’t have to wait for hours. I have also used

Max Factor Skin Luminizer Foundation Review

Foundation that made it’s début at  Victoria Beckham’s (AW14) show;  with the look  created by Pat McGrath? Need I say more? I am in!

What foundation was that? Max Factor’s Skin Luminizer. I was sent one of the shades, so here are my thoughts:

Max Factor Skin Luminizer Foundation Review and SwatchesI am a big fan of the design, the cool swirly highlighter stripes add something special to it. Both products mix together, as they come out.

The packaging is made of plastic, which may not look  or feel so chic as my favourite, sadly discontinued Second Skin, but it is very handy for travelling and taking it with you, it is very light.

The pump is very well made,  it dispenses even a very small amount of product so you don’t waste any.

What about the foundation itself?

It has a

Summer 2014 Lip Products: Max Factor, Revlon, BITE and Sephora

Since yesterday I’ve featured some new eye products that are out for summer 2014, it is time for lip products. We’ve already previewed so many, but there are even more coming out our way.

Let’s take a look:

Summer 2014 Lip Products Max Factor, Revlon, BITE and Sephora

Max Factor are bringing out new lush summery  shades of their Colour Elixir (I have reviewed nude shades here).  The price is £7.99 from here. Polished Fuchsia looks gorgeous!

Revlon are launching yet another cool lip product (I haven’t tried it but love the way it looks & sounds) – Color Stay Moisture Stain which you can purchase from here for  $9.99.  Olivia is

Red(ish) Blushers: Hourglass, Clarins, Benefit, Max Factor and MeMeMe

Since my post about pink blushers got so many views, I’ve decided to write one about reddish ones, too. Do let me know, if you’d like me to choose 5 corals/peaches and berries/plums…

Red(ish) Blushers Hourglass, Clarins, Benefit, Max Factor and MeMeMe

So here is what I’ve picked:

Hourglass Aura Cheek Tint in Flush (review and swatches)

I think that Flush is a perfect name for this sheer water-based blusher, it gives the most natural and beautiful effect.  Cheek Tint is easy to blend, plus it has a nice staying power.

Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush in 18 Soft Cardinal (review and swatches)

This is probably my personal favourite! It is a gorgeous cream blusher with “wet & glossy” texture, it doesn’t enhance any dry patches and looks like a second skin, I use it
