This month I don’t have that many favourites but I absolutely adore all the products that I’ve included…
I want to start with a product that I wear pretty much daily - Clarins Be Long Mascara (review), this is one of the best mascaras I have ever used. You can get a subtle look, with defined long lashes, but you can also build it up for an intense look, is really works! Not to mention that the formula makes the lashes grow longer with time. I have already recommended Be Long to some of my friends, you would recommend it to you, too.
The other two makeup products are for lips. One is for a subtle effect, and the other one is a bolder option.
L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Extraordinaire in 100 Mezzo Pink (review and lip swatches) is a gorgeous baby pink shade, it feels moisturizing and hydrating on the lips, and it smells delicious. My makeupRead More
I’ve wanted to try L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Extraordinaire for some time but just couldn’t decide which shade one to get. That was until I saw 100 Mezzo Pink.
You know me, and my love for light milky pink shimmering lip products, they are my version of nude.
You can already tell that I am absolutely in love with the shade. But what about this product in general? I think it is absolutely amazing, everything about it! Well, to be honest, I am not a huge fan of the packaging but it is not that important.
I like the sponge applicator which is very convenient, and makes it very easy to use the lipstick.
As for the formula, intense shades are like liquid lipsticks, you get a full-on colour with a liquid texture and comfort of a gloss. My shade is like aRead More
It’s time for May beauty favourites! It was very hard to narrow things down but I’ve managed to, almost.
This month I was away for two weeks (one week at one place, and then another one – different one), but I always had Elemis Skin Brush (review) with me, and I’ve used it religiously. I personally use it on the dry body, brushing towards the heart. The results are amazing, but you can read all the dets in my review linked above. I have two Elemis brushes, because I just had to! And I would definitely recommend you picking one up.
I did take a picture of only ten products on purpose, so that I don’t go on and on in this post. But I just have to mention this Rouge Bunny Rouge brush, it’s my staple now.
Dior Addict 561 Baby Rose Lipstick (review and lip swatches)
For those of you who don’t know, Lush launched their makeup range not a long time ago.
I was near Lush the other day so decided to check out their lipsticks as I’ve heard very good things about them. And, wow, they did not disappoint!
I don’t own one yet but I did swatch almost all the shades on my hand in store and did put one on my lips (Lush provide disposable applicators) which I had on for the whole evening.
These are very pigmented, long-lasting and non-drying. I also love the fact that they can be used as blushers, too.
I left Lush with Charm on my lips which survived pizza and drinks with friends. I actually had to get back and get one for my friend as I knew she’d like it. The one you can see on the photo is hers now, it is Charm.
Here are just some random swatches of Lush’s makeup. I would definitelyRead More
I am a fan of Revlon’s matte lipsticks but if you find them too dry and you don’t like matte lipsticks in general you may like their Colorburst lipsticks.
I’ve read a lot of good things about these lipsticks so I’ve decided to try them out myself. I’ve got a lipstick in #20 which is called Baby Pink.
A lot of people love this design but I like the design of matte lipsticks so much better, although this one is ok.
Baby Pink is a shimmery pale pink. I really like this shade and this is my type of “nude”. I usually use my finger after I’ve applied it, as I find it a bit too shimmery and mettalic-y for my taste.
I like the texture of the lipstick, although I can’t say that it’s super moisturising, it’s not drying although it can enhance dryness of your lips (it’s winter after all).
Here I’ve tried to make some swatches with the flash and without itRead More
