Makeup4all Turns 9!

I am very happy to share that today Makeup4all turns 9, it is as if I wrote this feature about it turning 5 yesterday. I honestly can’t believe it. So much has changed since that time.  Considering that it is also Valentine’s Day, I though I would share some features that are appropriate for the occasion. And for me VDay means red and roses, not like any other day is different.

Everything You Need To Know About Red Lipstick (here). I have written so many articles about red lipsticks over the years, and that is just a round up. And if you are wondering about my current favoruite red – that is this one.

And let’s not forget about the red Nail Polishes (here). Especially about

March 2017 Beauty Favourites

Spring is really here! And I am really enjoying the warmer and longer days, and finally we get to see some sunshine. March was also a very great month for me, beauty-wise, as I have discovered and re-discovered some amazing products.

But before we start, I have to say that I am still absolutely in love with the products I’ve mentioned in my January favourites: Charlotte Tilbury foundation, Givenchy mascara,  Inglot sculpting powder and Daniel Sandler’s blusher.

I will start with beauty, as there is only one product that I want to mention, and that is SachaJuan Ocean Mist (review) which I have re-discovered and almost used up. My brother is getting me a new bottle as a Belated Birthday gift. This gives a lot of volume and texture without making the hair feel crunchy. At least I don’t find that mine is.

Skincare and body care wise, I am just trying to use up my half-empty bottles before I get anything new and exciting.

As for makeup, there

A Week in Lipsticks

Recently I was talking a lot about lipsticks with some girls I work with, and this inspired me to wear a different shade each day for a month. I wear the same ones over, and over again but considering how many I have it was about time to change my habit.  So here are the ones I wore last week…

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Transylvania (lip swatch)

I am obsessed with it, as you may know, I have to stop myself from wearing it every single day. It is the most perfect vampy (Hey, Drac! yes, I absolutely had to do it) shade.  Whenever I wear it – I am always asked about it. The formula is not too drying and can be applied evenly.  This is the most affordable product from the selection and there are tonnes of other colours in the line.

Illamasqua Intense Lipgloss in Boost (review and lip  swatch)

Technically this is not a lipstick but, as the name suggests, it is pretty intense when layered so I’ve included it, too. It smells of sweets, feels moisturising on and is the most unique shade out of these all, a violet with a blue base, so beautiful.

ArtDeco Soft Lip Liner Waterproof in #8  and Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Tesoro (review and lip  swatches). Wearing this combo on my Twitter profile photo.

This is my ultimate

Clarins Rouge Eclat Lipstick in Red Paprika Review and Swatches

Since we were talking about lipsticks yesterday, I thought that’d be a good idea to share about the lipstick which is a part of Clarins’ Autumn collection.

I was sent Rouge Eclat in the shade 22 Red Paprika (there is also one called 21 Tawny Rose).

Clarins Rouge Eclat Lipstick in  22 Red Paprika Review and Swatches 1Clarins lip products are fantastic, and  Rouge Eclat is not an exception.  It feels amazing on the lips, almost like a lip balm but with an intense colour. According to the brand, it protects against dehydration, and boosts collagen. And in reality Rouge Eclat one of those lipsticks that feel comfortable on and  stay on nicely, without any drying.

My friend who is not a lipstick wearer who tried this lipstick was impressed that the formula makes it really easy to apply the product as it glides on and doesn’t make a mess.

Lip Products For the Weekend Away

I was away with my friends for the weekend, and it was exactly what I needed, we had such an amazing time, walked around, tried new food and just laughed a lot.

I thought I’d share what lip products I had with me. I could actually have less but since I wanted to make an effort for once and have a choice I took quite a few. And here they are together with everything else I had with me, so that you’d see the proportions.

Plus,  I’ve decided to share about the lip products, as regular readers will recognize all the other products as I talk about them non-stop anyway. But if you have any questions about any of the products – please leave me a comment.

Makeup Products for the weekend makeup4all

Also, since I usually talk about luxury lip products, I thought it’d be nice to include some budget-friendly options this time.

Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector. (review and swatches) – the best “nude”

I am totally in love with this line. I have already used up 01 Rose and now am half way through Rosewood. These are absolutely brilliant, just like the glossy version. I also have two more shades which are equally great!

Rouge Bunny Rouge Lip Potion Devilish Nectar – just for fun.

This is actually a  lip gloss with Chilli which makes your lips fuller.  It also contains  golden shimmer so the lips do look pretty. I did not get a chance to use it this time but it was nice to have options.  I will
