Tag: best eye shadows
June was a very busy month for me, so I did not discover/rediscover that many beauty products, however, I truly love the ones I am mentioning, they are real gems.
This is one of the best base products I have ever used. I am convinced it is some kind of Magyar mágia (Hungarian magic), as it makes the face look flawless, radiant and even younger. As I have mentioned in my original review, my friend was very skeptical about my big love for this, but after trying mine, she ordered one the next day. I personally think that you can’t really go wrong with Omorovicza products in general. They are very expensive but are worth it.
I should really write detailed reviews about the Charlotte Tilbury products. Both of these were a present from a friend, and I am happy she thought of me. Legendary Lashes mascara creates absolutely incredible lashes: full, voluminous and long. Not that many mascaras will give you this effect. However, it smudges like crazy, and unless I use it with a waterproof top coat – I will end up with mascara on my upper lids. But I am kind of ready to forgive this for the effect I get. Colour Chameleons were
I have shared the photo of two new eye shadow releases from Rouge Bunny Rouge eye shadows on my Instagram about a month ago, and even included that gorgeous cream duo in my monthly favourites.
I have actually already reviewed the other duo eye shadows available here, if you are interested. But what about this new option?
Birdwing Beauteous is a duo with a metallic sparkling finish and the shades are described as: champagne gold and silvery blue-black. RBR suggest blending two shades together to end to obtain a rich silver shade.
And, let me tell, you, it is so incredibly gorgeous. Both shades have that fine silver glittery particles that create the multi-dimensional look on the eye lids. I have got so many compliments and questions thanks to these eye shadows. Unfortunately, my photography skills were not enough to capture the effect on the photo. So you have to trust me that it looks way more interesting and beautiful in real life.
As for the formula,
First of all, how is it December already? I mean how is it the last month of 2016?! Are you excited for 2017? I know I am!
When I have gathered the beauty favourites to take a photo, I have realised that most of them are the same products I’ve featured in October so here are only the ones which I haven’t.
Before we start, I would like to mention some other things I really loved in November which are beauty related, too.
Photos from my Insta
Book – Branded Beauty by Mark Tungate (from Amazon and Amazon UK). I think everyone who is interested in beauty and brands should read it, the book is packed with interesting facts and quotes. I personally really enjoyed the history of so many companies and the explanation about the marketing tips and tricks.
Mr. Selfridge TV Series. (Amazon and Amazon UK). I’ve had this on my to-watch list for a long time already but gave it a go only last weekend, and it is great. I love how it shows the pre -WWI history of the legendary Selfridges. Imagine that it was unthinkable to sell beauty products over the counter back in the days for obvious reasons, it is very well shown in Season 1 Episode 3.
Sparkles. I have to admit, I just have to have anything sparkling these days to brighten up the grey and dark November days, which feel like forever nights actually.
I also simply have to include
Hello, October! It’s time for September favourites, and last month I’ve discovered some absolutely amazing products which I am excited to tell you about.
My favourite base combo in September (and not only in September): Clarins Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base in 01 Rose (review and swatches) and Clarins HydraQuench Tinted Moisturizer (review and swatches), decanted. I have written very detailed reviews about both products so you are welcome to take a look. But if I had to sum up – I’d say that both items work incredibly well to add that glow/sheen back in the skin. You look just fine when in reality you are ridiculously exhausted and can only dream about getting some sleep. I recommend for dry skin especially.
I really love my Inglot Sculpting HD Powder in 504 (review and swatches), as you can see from the photo above. It creates that perfect and natural shade. Works even on the pale complexions and doesn’t look muddy, the formula is soft and smooth, and blends easily.
If I had to choose only one favourite product this month – that’d have to be
If you follow me on Instagram, you could already see a preview of Rouge Bunny Rouge new products for Summer 2015. The most exciting one is probably their duo cream eye shadows. I have actually included these in my monthly favourites.
This duo actually combines two gorgeous shades: Atlas Swallowtail and Brocade Skipper (review and swatches), and regular readers will probably know how much I love both!
The texture is creamy and smooth it applies like a dream, blends out easily and stays on for hours without smudging or fading. I experience only minor creases by the end of the working day. Just make sure that you blend the product quickly (which you can even do with your fingers), as once set – it doesn’t move. One more thing which I have to mention – it is a great formula for mature ladies, as the shadows don’t enhance the texture of the skin.
The finish is
