Lip Products For the Weekend Away

I was away with my friends for the weekend, and it was exactly what I needed, we had such an amazing time, walked around, tried new food and just laughed a lot.

I thought I’d share what lip products I had with me. I could actually have less but since I wanted to make an effort for once and have a choice I took quite a few. And here they are together with everything else I had with me, so that you’d see the proportions.

Plus,  I’ve decided to share about the lip products, as regular readers will recognize all the other products as I talk about them non-stop anyway. But if you have any questions about any of the products – please leave me a comment.

Also, since I usually talk about luxury lip products, I thought it’d be nice to include some budget-friendly options this time.

Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector. (review and swatches) – the best “nude”

I am totally in love with this line. I have already used up 01 Rose and now am half way through Rosewood. These are absolutely brilliant, just like the glossy version. I also have two more shades which are equally great!

Rouge Bunny Rouge Lip Potion Devilish Nectar – just for fun.

This is actually a  lip gloss with Chilli which makes your lips fuller.  It also contains  golden shimmer so the lips do look pretty. I did not get a chance to use it this time but it was nice to have options.  I will

Maybelline ColorDrama Intense Velvet Lip Pencil in 310 Berry Much Review and Lip Swatches

I am loving the lipsticks that come in a form of a lip pencil, as they are easy to apply and you don’t need any extra liners or brushes for that. The other day I’ve picked up Maybelline’s ColorDrama Intense Velvet Lip Pencil.

They had so many beautiful colours but 310 Berry Much is the one that stood out for me, this is a very “me” shade. I was actually shopping with a friend who bought the nude one.

I think this is a fantastic product for the price.  The pigmentation is excellent, the colour pay-off is amazing, the colour is gorgeous.

As for the finish, it is just spot-on! It is not a flat matte but, at the same time, not a sheer glossy shade. I’d describe it as

September 2014 Beauty Favourites

This month I don’t have that many favourites but I absolutely adore all the products that I’ve included…

September 2014 beauty favourites makeup4all clarins loreal AlgenistI 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 makeup

Tom Ford Lip Color in Bruised Plum Review and Lip Swatches

Today I want to tell you about a very famous product –  my first Tom Ford lipstick. I don’t know what took me so long to get one but I did it finally. I’ve bought it for my Birthday this month.

I’ve chosen a shade called Bruised Plum which is absolutely gorgeous.

So what is so special about this product? Is it worth the hight price tag £36/$49?

Of course, the first thing that I have to mention is the amazing packaging, a heavy and luxurious almost black case with gold details and a TF logo on top. It is simple, elegant and chic, timeless classic. Speaking of classic, Tom Ford Lip Color has that vanilla scent, which I personally associate with lipsticks.

What about the lipstick itself? I am extremely pleased with the colour that I’ve chosen, Bruised Plum  is a beautiful cool toned plum. Here is how it looks like compared with Clarins Joli Rouge Lipstick in 738 Royal Plum and
