Tag: best blush
October is one of my favourite months and I am kind of sad that it is over already but it was a great one despite the fact that I was ill for over a week.
I’ve decided that before talking about my beauty favourites, I’d mention some other things I like/enjoy:
- I’ve finally went to my first swimming class after planning on going for months. Since I’ve got sick the next day I haven’t been back yet but I will be. Next week.
- Downton Abbey. That 1920’s style…And I refuse to accept that it’s the last season.
- Since I was ill for a week at home, I’ve got time to read and it was wonderful. I was mostly reading cultural and philosophical articles (yeah, I do love such topics) but here is my reading list.
- And finally – Pinterest. This has to be my favourite social media, I am always browsing/pinning/saving photos.
Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in Alluring Rose (review and swatches)
This is probably my favourite launch of the year. Seriously, I could not love these blushes more than I do, and I feel like I have been going on, and on about them. They have the creamiest and softest texture, blend beautifully and have that all-in-one effect. You don’t really need any highlighter or sculpting, just this. And
It is the time when I am telling you about my favourite products of the year. I did not pick a product in each category just for the sake of having one, but rather only those that really stood out for me.
The first part will be about makeup. Here we go…
Base:Clarins HydraQuench Tinted Moisturizer (review)
Although there were quite a few “foundations” I loved, this tinted moisturizer was the base of 2014. It gives a natural and glowing light-t0-medium coverage, and leaves the skin looking beautiful. HydraQuench is one of my favourite skincare ranges, and this TM is just as good, as everything else, works perfectly for my very dry, dehydrated and sensitive skin. I am very pleased that it never accentuated any dry patches I sometimes have.
Concealer: Clarins Instant Concealer (review)
Definitely the best concealer out there, covers the dark circles and brightens the under eye area, doesn’t get in the fine lines, stays on really well.
Powder: Rouge Bunny Rouge Flawless Face Powder Precious Velvet (review)
I have to say that
I wrote about Daniel Sandler new Watercolour in POP last week and today I want to show you how it actually looks like applied.
I’ve been wearing it non-stop ever since I received mine. I can definitely see why is it called POP as it is a pretty pink shade which gives a pop of colour to your complexion. POP also contains silver shimmer which looks beautiful in real life and on the photos.
Daniel actually told me that it is his favourite shade. By the way, you can follow him on twitter for some great tips and more.
Here is a swatch. Can you see how
I have already reviewed several shades of the amazing Daniel Sandler Watercolour blushes but I have one more shade to show and the news about the brand new one.
The colour that I want to show you today is called Truth and is described as: “a barely there nude peach shade with flattering highlights of peach and silver to brighten very fair skins. Perfect for fair to medium skin toned ladies that get high colour; this shade won’t make you look hot and bothered. In fact, it will help disguise hot flushes. ”
This such a pretty shade for those that have fair skin. But it also looks amazing on a little darker skin tones. Right now I am a bit tanned but this shade still looks perfect. It really brightens up the complexion without being too obvious, it just gives this pretty peach tint to the cheeks.
Keep in mind that it has some
Some girls can never have too many lipsticks, some – too many eye shadows, some – nail polishes or perfumes and as for myself – I can never have too many blushes. I am a huge fan of blush, especially cream/gel/liquid so I am always happy to find a good one.
So today I want to tell you about my favourite blush of the moment and definitely one of my favourite blushes among all that I’ve ever tried. Please meet the Hourglass Aura Cheek Stain. It is a “water-based formula that gives cheeks a lasting and subtle lit-from-within glow”.
Not only the design is beautiful and chic but the product has the highest quality. The texture is amazing, very light and blendable. It gives a sheer and radiant colour but, as suggested, you can always add more to get a brighter shade. I love that it gives a very natural finish and makes you look healthy and beautiful. Aura Cheek Stain stays on for a long time without fading or disappearing from your cheeks.
The shade that I have is called Flush and it’s a sheer red which I absolutely love as it makes me look awake and I can get away with a light foundation or even some concealer, this blush, eye brow pencil, a bit of mascara and it completely changes the way I look!
