Tag: best eye shadows
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
This month “Beauty Favourites” will be a little bit different, it will be more about the [makeup] products that I have been using on my face.
May was a very busy month for me, and I was always in a rush, so often I had to do my makeup on the go, so I had a makeup bag with the products always ready. The products have been more or less the same throughout the month, so let’s take a look:
Ella Bache Tomato Vitamin Radiance Cream (as seen on my Instagram)
I’ve bought it after someone highly recommended it to me, and so far I really love it, it really adds glow and radiance to your complexion, even if you had less than 5 hours of sleep.
Peter Thomas Roth CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Complexion Corrector (review)
This is an excellent product which combines great coverage and SPF factor but still feels light on the skin. One of my favourites for summer, the mini size is also great for carrying around.
NYX Blush in Taupe (review)
The photo speaks for itself. I am
MAC released tonnes of new collections recently, and even more and coming out. But there is one that really caught my attention. And it is called Eyes On MAC, and is all about the eye shadows. The brand’s eye shadows are amazing, so it is worth considering some purchases…
So there are seven palettes, three with 15 eye shadows and four with 9, and they retail a lot cheaper than they would if you got all the shades individually.
Here are the details:
Cool Neutral Times 15 Eyeshadow Palette: Flounce, Sweet Allure, Sun Tweaked, Blackberry, After Dusk, Pick Me Up, Crushed Clove, Cozy Grey, Deception, Brun, Silver Fog, French Clay, Cumulus, Pearled Earth and Black Tied

It’s time for March favourites! Can you believe that 1/3 of Spring is already behind?
Let’s start with makeup, this month I have a good mix of products price-wise, from affordable Rimmel and Max Factor, to a high-end Rouge Bunny Rouge and uber luxurious Omorovicza.
Bobbi Brown Natural Brow Shaper & Hair Touch Up in Slate (review)
This is still the only brow product that I use on a daily basis. It makes the brows look fuller, tints them and holds them in place. This is love.
Omorovicza Complexion Perfector BB SPF 20 (review and swatches)
This month I have re-discovered my love for this base. It is like a good looking skin in a bottle. The skin is glowing and radiant, and the tone is evened out and perfected. I have written a very detailed review in the past, so you are welcome to take a look.
Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in Alluring Rose (review and face swatches)
This is still my favourite blusher, just like last month. Alluring Rose is a gorgeous warm nude with a spot-on radiance effect. It lifts the face instantly, I’d recommend these blushes to everyone.
Max Factor Colour Elixir Gloss Nude Pomade in 10 Pristine Nude (review and lip swatches)
This gloss has
