2015 So Far. Answering Some Beauty Questions.

My friend Paris B over at My Women Stuff  recently posted a chatty feature about the updates from 2015. Can you believe that half of the year is gone?!

In general, I have been very impressed with this year so far, despite it being a very hard time.  But at this point I can say that I have learned so much and achieved so many things that I’ve always wanted.  I have a lot of goals and plans for the next six months of 2015, as well. Plus, I’ve realized how blessed I am to have such amazing friends and family that are always there for me.

But, back to makeup, Paris listed some questions, so I thought why not answering them here:

Your favourite foundation? 

Recently it was all about Clarins HydraQuench Tinted Moisturizer (review) and Peter Thomas Roth CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Complexion Corrector (review) the first one is like skincare and foundation two-in-one, and the second one is  like SPF and foundation.  Both are perfect for summer, they feel light, non-heavy or greasy.

What sucky product have you used recently that we should all avoid?

Luckily, I haven’t used anything I disliked in quite some time.

Is there a skincare product you love love love?

I’d choose Ella Bache Vitamin Radiance Cream and Balance Me Radiance Rose Face Oil  – they

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!

L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Extraordinaire in 100 Mezzo Pink Review and Lip Swatches

I’ve wanted to try L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Extraordinaire for some time but just couldn’t decide which shade one to get. That was until I saw 100 Mezzo Pink.

You know me, and my love for light milky pink shimmering lip products, they are my version of nude.

L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Extraordinaire in 100 Mezzo Pink

You can already tell that I am absolutely in love with the shade. But what about this product in general? I think it is absolutely amazing, everything about it! Well, to be honest, I am not a huge fan of the packaging but it is not that important.

I like the sponge applicator which is very convenient, and makes it very easy to use the lipstick.

As for the formula, intense shades are like liquid lipsticks, you get a full-on colour with a liquid texture and comfort of a gloss. My shade is like a

Illamasqua Lipstick in Immodest Review and Lip Swatches

I have already shown you the Duo Blusher in Ketie and Ambition from the Illamasqua’s  SS 2013 makeup collection I’M Perfection.

So today I want to show you their newest lipstick – Immodest. I personally think this is an awesome name for such a beautiful bright candy pink.

This is my fourth lipstick from the brand so I am already familiar with the quality and the formula, you can see the other shades:  Over (coral), Atomic (fuchsia) and Kontrol (purple).

The brand’s lipsticks are perfect for a statement lip, as the pigmentation is amazing, you get a full-on colour with one layer.

As for

Givenchy Le Rouge Lipstick Review and Lip Swatches. Rave

I see new releases literally every day, so I don’t get excited that often. But when I saw the photos of Givenchy’s Le Rouge lipstick I thought that is was a mind-blowing collection! I also knew that I had to get it!

I have bought it only last week, although it was released back in February, because the lovely  Givenchy PR actually sent me some lipsticks and polishes to show you and I did not want to get the same shades, so had to wait.  But the samples got lost, thanks to the glorious post workers, along with some of my other post…

I bought  the lipstick for my Birthday anyway, as I wanted at least one shade for my personal use.

The thing is that there are different shades available in different countries and I had my fingers crossed that I would be able to buy 302 Hibiscus Exclusif  which was the shade that attracted me. Luckily, I was able to find it.

So what is so special about Le Rouge?

First of all, this is the best lipstick design that was ever created, I don’t think I could love it more. It is leather with silver metal with engraved Givenchy logo on top  and “Givenchy” written both on the bullet and the cap. There are also two studs that look really cool. The package feels heavy and luxurious!

The lipstick formula is
