If you read my blog for some time, you probably already know that I LOVE BECCA! But how did it all started?
It all started with the Shimmering Skin Perfector. I love highlighters and I had quite a few but was still searching for a perfect one when Lisa Eldridge recommended me her all time favourite one!
I never tried BECCA so the prices scared me off a bit (they are the same as Chanel, Dior etc). This particular product is £33/€45/$41 But I’ve decided to give it a try and ordered mine from zuneta.
And I am SO happy that I did! Now this is a must have for me, moreover I liked it so much that I’ve decided to try ALL the products from the brand and I am slowly getting there.
But back to the highlighter. Yes, you may think that £33 is too expensive but seriously, you get 50ml, just think about it! Fifty ml of a highlighter when all you need is a tiny amount of the product. It means that this will last you for ages.
This is also a great investment if you are a Make-Up Artist, you can just get several shades of the SSP and you are done with highlighters for a long time ahead!
And what about the quality?Read More
Great news for the fans of Ellis Faas – now you can get their Skin Veil foundation in a new package!
So all 8 shades of Skin Veil foundation are available in 30ml bottles (but you can still get them in the famous pen format).
Here is what is written about it:
“The liquid formula of the Skin Veil provides the ideal amount of coverage and illuminates skin without looking or feeling like a mask. With an exceptional balance of high-quality ingredients, Skin Veil glides onto the face in a thin layer, magically blending into the complexion with moisturising ingredients that nourish, such as Vitamin E, and protect with SPF 15+.”
The price is £55/€65/$90
There is also a new look from Ellis whichRead More
Before the holidays I won this amazing set from the Bare Escentuals via their twitter.
It is called Sweet Sparklers and includes:
- Mini 100% Natural Lipcolor in Sherbet (baby pink)
- Mini 100% Natural Lipcolor in Rose Crepe (blush rose)
- Mini 100% Natural Lipgloss in Pink Prosecco (blushing effervescence)
- Mini 100% Natural Lipgloss in Kir Royale (twinkling sheer plum)
First of all I have to say that it looks so cute and pretty, absolutely love it!
I haven’t tried the lipsticks yet so I can’t tell you my opinion about them yet but the colours look so lovely that I am almost sure that I am going to love them both.
As for the glosses – IRead More
I am looking through all the Spring 2011 makeup collections (I can’t wait to see the one from BECCA ) and am trying to make some conclusions and the wish list.
To tell the truth, I can’t say that I am super excited about all the collections, although there are quite a few products that I am interested in: new Dior Addict lipsticks, Chanel Coco Rouge Shine, new Shiseido lipsticks, Guerlain pink lipsrick , YSL blushes, No 7 pretty much everything (but I already bought several things, will write my impression later), Hourglass Aura collection, Too Faced Romantic Eye palette ( I really want this one) and I would really love some nail polishes.
Basically that is it. But IRead More
I like almost any kind of lipstick/lip gloss but I have to admit that I am not the biggest fan of the brown(ish) lip colours. But I do actually have several brown lip products which look ok on me but I still don’t like them.
I’ve got this Lancome Color Fever lipstick in one of their combined sets. It is hard to find most Color Fever lipsticks now as most of them have been sold out but I just checked out Lancome’s website and this particular shade is still available.
This is a brownish lipstick with shiny particles. It is not bad, really. But I’d rather wear a pale pink.
As for the lipstick itself, I love it. I like how it feels on the lips, it stays on for some time, doesn’t fade soon and is not too drying as some lipsticks. Moreover, I have several Lancome lipsticks and I like them all.Read More
