As promised, here is the second post about the upcoming new lipsticks for SS15. And this time it’s more of a “classic” selection, even a matte option:
Burberry Kisses (£25 from Harrods)
“The weightless gel texture formula delivers a customisable make-up result – a single kiss of colour gives understated luminosity, two or three kisses gives intense depth and vibrancy. Enriched with a blend of tea, lavender and rosehip.”

If you are a regular reader, you know that I try to feature a lot of cleansing balms and melting cleansers. I find that these work the best for very dry and sensitive skin. And if you have a similar skin type – hopefully find those posts helpful. Here is the first round-up of such cleansers, and there will be a second one with time.
Today I want to share about the Balance Me Cleanse and Smooth Face Balm, which was featured in my February favourites. And it is definitely one of the best cleansers I have ever used.
Why is it so good?
Since it is oil based (camellia, kukui nut and rosehip oils with cocoa, mango and shea butters, English camomile and red mandarin essential oils) – it doesn’t leave the skin feeling dried out or tight and you don’t get that I-need-to-put-on-a-moisturizer-immediately feeling. In fact, it’s the opposite, the skin is nourished, moisturized, smooth and soft.

New season – new lipstick, right? Here are some of the variants which you can consider. I have already posted about a lot of new lipsticks (browse here), and here are even more. This time it’s all abut the sheer, glossy, balmy textures. And, yes, there will be a separate feature about different ones.
Please excuse the bad quality of the photos, they were made with a phone camera + a bad light in store. But, hopefully, it will give you an idea of what to expect.

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:

This is actually a powder which is lighter than the usual Terracotta, so it will look amazing on the paler skin tones, creating some warmth and glow. There is a reviving pink for Blondes or apricot for Brunettes. You can mix the two shades together or use them separetely. And how gorgeous is that compact? And don’t forget the signature scent of freesia and orange blossom, tonka bean and vanilla.
Here is also a preview of the classic Terracotta bronzer and the brush.
The brand also released a new mascara and single eye shadows, which seem to be a new popular format as a part of their Eye Event collection.
