Best Beauty Products of 2014 Makeup Clarins, RBR, theBalm, Lacnome, Max FactorEye Shadows Platte – theBalm Shady Lady Vol 2 (review)

I have re-discovered this beauty in summer, and  this was the palette I travelled with most of the times, amazing formulas, great colour selection, thin packaging and great mirror – what else do you need? theBalm eye shadows are among the best.

 Mascara – Clarins Be Long (review)

I’ve managed to get lush looking lashes with Be Long, it separates perfectly, is never clumpy, and gives a nice , rather dramatic effect, if you use several coats. The brush, for me, is mess-free. I have recommended it to several friends, and they loved it, too.

Cream Eye Shadow – Max Factor Excess Shimmer Eye Shadows  (review)

Definitely one of the coolest eye shadows I’ve discovered  in ages.  Mousse-like texture that allows you to get a sheer   hint of shimmer, or layer it on for a more intense look. It is stunning both ways!

Max Factor Mastepiece Transform High Impact Volumising Mascara Review

When I was a teen, I considered Max Factor mascara to be a proper luxury, I had to save money to  get myself a tube. Although that was ages ago, but I am still in love with the brand’s mascaras. In fact, their latest one – Excess Volume Extreme Impact was  very innovative and brilliant

But what about Masterpiece Transform High Impact Volumising Mascara?

Max Factor Masteprice Transform High Impact Volumising Mascara ReviewIt is actually phenomenal, I think. I have been using it for weeks now, and I am absolutely in love. It gives the most amazing effect – intense, dramatic ultra black  lashes with impressive volume and  fullness.

But I have to  mention that this mascara gets a lot better with time when it dries out a bit, but I think that it’s the same for all the mascaras.

And what I personally appreciate the most – how long-lasting it is. It stays on really well, of course not as a waterproof mascara,  but definitely better than any other mascara that I’ve used. My eyes are very sensitive and they are watering a lot, so I really appreciate it.  It can be hard to remove it by the end of the day, but who cares?

The  bendy rubbery brush has short bristles which distribute the product that way that  it coats each lash and gives this dramatic effect.

I have actually noticed that  Mastepiece Transform already won several beauty awards, and rightly so! It is that good.Max Factor Masteprice Transform High Impact Volumising Mascara Review brushYou can buy it from Boots and Superdrug for £9.99.

November 2014 Beauty Favourites

Can you believe that it’s the last month of Autumn? And the holidays are just around the corner? Speaking of holidays, I still need to book everything. How very last minute, I know.

And today let’s take a look at the beauty products that I have been loving in November.

November 2014 Beauty Favourites Max Factor Becca Urban Decay ArtDeco Daniel sandler awesomeThis month it was very similar base-wise for me, as in October.

I have been using BECCA’s Shimmering Skin Perfector almost every day, since the lack of sleep and non-stop lifestyle do impact the way my skin looks. To fake a healthy glowing complexion, this is my personal must have.

On top I have been loving Awesome Aqua Radiance CC Cream or Daniel Sandler’s Invisible Radiance Foundation and Concealer. DS’s foundation is one of my all time favourites, it definitely is radiant and glowing. Yes, there is a theme here, my dry and dehydrated skin needs some glow and radiance…

It’s the second month that I have been neglecting blushers almost completely. And my favourite cheeks product is still

Clarins Be Long Mascara Review. Rave

I was asked about the Clarins Be Long mascara so many times… This is why I am happy to share my opinion about it.

Lately I’ve been loving volumizing mascaras that give a real wow-effect, such as Chanel’s Le Volume de Chanel and Max Factor’s Excess Volume Extreme Impact , so I was a bit afraid that this one could be too subtle. But, luckily, you can get not only “natural looking lashes” with this mascara. You can achieve more dramatic results, too.

Clarins Be Long Mascara Review rave brushBe Long has a small rubbery bendy  brush which  makes the application very easy, you can also apply it to the bottom lashes, without getting the product everywhere. Plus you can get even the smallest and the shortest lashes with it. Win-win!

So what are the results? You get

Favourite Beauty Products of 2013: Makeup. Part 2

I already did a post about my favourite bases and cheek products of 2013, so here is the second part which is all about the eyes, lips and nails.  To compare my list t0 2012 favourites click here.

So here we go…

Eyes

Favourite Beauty Products of 2013 Makeup for eyes makeup4allI will start with the eye brows, and my favorite and most-used product, hands down, was Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Soft Brunette (review). It is a must have for me now, easy to use, long-lasting and great shade.

As for the liners – it was super easy to choose: Rouge Bunny Rouge Raven Glaze Lacquer Liner (review), black and glossy liner is in my personal top favourites ever. When I am in the mood for the cat eye, this is the product I always use. Plus it’s so easy to control.

For an every day use, and I’m sure this is no surprise to you, I always use Lancome’s Le Crayon Khol in Brun Noir (review). I have so many eye pencils, but 99% of the time I use this one. It’s a perfect blackened brown which is very soft and easy to blend, dreamy.

When it comes to mascaras, I have two favourites, as well. One in a classic black shade, which is  Chanel Le Volume de Chanel Mascara in 10 Noir (review), easily one of the best mascaras I have ever tried, ultra black and mega volumizing. I have a small sample but am buying a full size.

I also want to mention a colourful mascara – Rouge Bunny Rouge Dramatic Lash Mascara Megaplumes in Oxblood Panache (review). It is an innovative shade which looks beautiful on the lashes, what you is is what you get.

And, of course, I have to mention Anastasia’s Genius Top Coat (review) which changed my beauty life.

There are so many  great eye shadows that I could
