You all know that I am a huge fan of cream products, and mentioned various cream blushers so many times. But what about bronzers?
Yes, cream bronzers! I have three variants to show you here:
The most famous is definitely Soleil Tan de Chanel (review and swatches)
It is a cult classic for a reason, it is such a versatile product, it can be used as a base to warm up the complexion or as a regular bronzer to add some glow and definition to the face. The texture is light and the formula blends like a dream. I Highly recommend it, unless you very fair skin tone, this is the most orange-toned bronzer out of three.

Tarte Cosmetics have been killing it lately with their Brazilliance range, Amazonian butter lipsticks, the sculptor contouring face slenderizer, loved by so many makeup addicts, and many other products.
But what are they offering for Fall?
There is a beautifully put together Rainforest After Dark collection. Let’s take a closer look at the products.
It is a palette which combines both makeup and skincare. All shade contain different clays, such as rose clay (soothes skin around the eye area), vanilla clay (helps control oil to keep pigment in place all day) and gold clay (maintains gentle skin balance and moisture).
The shades, they are: bare to explore (pink beige), make a mauve (plum mauve), plum away with me (dark plum), up to no gold (gold), tan-gled up in you (tan), don’t turn a-brown (dark brown), unleashed (nude rose blush), champagne (highlighter) and park ave princess (bronzer).
For example, timeless smoothing primer ($39), which is described as a “melt-in smoothing primer with innovative blurring and filling technology for a youthful appearance perfectly primed for makeup application.”
The formula is infused with Vitamins C & E and green bean extract which help the skin to look smoother and firmer. Tarte suggest that their primer can be also worn on it’s own, without the foundation on top.
If you need to cover up any imperfections -maracuja creaseless concealer ($24; available in 13 shades) is a product to look at!
It is a full coverage, waterproof concealer whichRead More
You all know that I love my Clarins skincare, but since I’ve already tried most of their products for my skin type (some of them I have re-purchased more than once), I’ve decided to try some other brands, along with Clarins.
And the brands that I’ve decided to add to my routine are REN and Ole Henrikson. I already posted several features about REN, (speaking of REN, I am really intrigued by this new product) and it’s the first time I am writing about Ole Henriksen actually.
I’d like to share about the face cream that I’ve been loving a lot lately - Sheer Transformation Creme.
- Actiwhite™ and licorice: Prevents and corrects discolouration and evens skin tone with an effective combination of pea extract and sugar.
- Vitamin C: Stimulates collagen production.
- Fruit and beta hydroxy acids: Retexturises and soothes lines.
- Sandalwood, geranium, licorice and chamomile: Soothes, replenishes, balances and purifies the skin.
- Vitamin E: Heals, restores and nourishes the skin.
But does that all work?Read More
I have already posted a preview of Guerlain’s re-vamped KissKiss lipstick, and here are all the details about the Autumn collection.
The star of the collection is, of course, the new lipstick – KissKiss The New Glamorous Lipstick (£26 / €34).
The formula is enriched with mango butter, plumping hyaluronic acid spheres and Commiphora Myrrha; it hydrates, comforts and has a velvety feel. This lipstick has a rich, soft and cream texture and a satiny vibrant finish.
There are 25 shades to choose from.
This is how Guerlain describe this lipstick:
“A celebration of French seduction. A homage to eternal femininity. The elegance of a timeless essential. The whisper of a passionate kiss”Read More
