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.

Makeup wise, it was pretty much all the same in February, and you can read about all the products here. There is also something very different from me this month – I’ve been loving nude lipsticks (which is a complete shock for me), and I will write a feature about it soon.
There are only two other makeup products that I want to mention:
Illamasqua’s Nail Varnish in Nomad. I wore in for the whole last week of the month, and this gorgeous jade set me in the mood for Spring. Not too pastel but not too bright, it is just perfect.
Max Factor’s Creme Puff Blush in 25 Alluring Rose. This is a shade created for medium and dark skin tones, so on me it looks like a bronzer. It blends out beautifully and gives a gorgeous glow. Look out for the feature about these new blushes this week.
As for the beauty products – I was very stressed and completely out of time in February, so shower time was the ultimate luxury and “me” time when I could just think and reflect on what was going on. I have tonnes of shower products in my tiny bathroom, and have been loving all of them, but twoRead More
In case you’ve missed, almost every brand brought out something for contouring this season, and I have already featured a lot of products. But there are even more…
Here are four other options. I haven’t tried any of the products, so can’t share my impression, this is why I’ve included the official description.
