I plan on writing a post about my favourite beauty products of 2013 in New Year, but thought that I would still write about my December 2013 favourites, since there are several very nice products I’d like to share about.
Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Soft Brunette (review)
This has been a favourite every single month ever since I’ve got it. It is perfect, I only wish the shade was a bit cooler, but that is fine.
Rouge Bunny Rouge Raven Glaze Lacquer Liner (review)
It seems like I have been using this eye liner almost every day. It is super easy to use and leaves a beautiful glossy black line.
I like this blush combo so much that I even dedicated a post to it! You can get a natural sheer wash of colour with ArtDeco, and add dimension and intensity with tatre. Plus such layering means long-staying power.
Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Lip Gloss in Oyster (review)
I’ve decided to re-discover some old favourites, and this is one of them. I love shimmery cool toned glosses from time to time, and this gloss from Bobbi Brown is uber gougers on the lips, especially paired withRead More
Today I opted for a very simple and minimal makeup, both in terms of colours and the quantity of products. Today it’s all about work and I am not going out anywhere afterwards, so I was not in the mood for any experiments, and , quite frankly, did not have time.
I’ve used Rouge Bunny Rouge Home Time Defying Foundation Skin Sanctuary which I promise to review soon. I totally forgot that I had the samples of it, the post is already in the process. I then added some Benefit’s Dandelion to brighten up the complexion and BECCA’s Beach Tint in Raspberry as a pop of colour on the cheeks and on top of the lip balm.
I have used Benefit’s powder eye shadows in Leggy and Dandy Brandy which are very soft and smooth, and blend beautifully. Lighter shade all over the lead and darker shade for definition. I have also lined the eyes with a black (and not brown, shocker!) Clarins Crayon Khol, smudged itRead More
I was away for ten days visiting my family and friends and I did not use Internet or my phone 95% of the time. It was the best decision ever, as I could truly enjoy the holidays and now I am back to work/blog/life well rested and motivated.
I was catching up on some blogs I follow and loved reading “The Best of 2012″ features, I should definitely post it myself. But in the meanwhile, here are the makeup products I had with me, and some of them are my all time favourites actually.
Omorovicza Complexion Perfector BB SPF 20 which I took in a small pot helped my skin to look flawless, I’ve also had my trusted Touche Eclat by YSL with me, as well, as Jouer’s Age Repairing Concealer in 3 Cameo.
Sienna X’s Cream To Powder Bronzer & Illuminator is a product I haven’t featured before but I do like it a lot and will definitely post about it soon.
First of all, I had my Benefit’s eye brow pencil, as I am never without it. Anastasia’s Genius Top Coat and three of my all time favourite eye shadows: Rouge Bunny Rouge Long Lasting Eye Shadow in Bejewelled Skylark, Daniel Sandler Polychromatic Eyeshadow in Lava andRead More
I have four eye shadows: 503 veuve noir, 512 von fleece, 524 mink and 554 petticoat (£6). And also a Styler in Minuit (£9.75).
I have used a lot of ArtDeco eye shadows over the years ( I have even finished several shades actually) so I knew that the quality was excellent, especially for the price. So there was no surprise here.
Although these are all matte shades they are not chalky at all, they blend nicely, are pigmented and last for hours on me. I have a white shade (512), an off white which is close to my skin tone when I am not tanned (554), a classic warm brown which works great for smoky eyes (524) and a matte black (503).
As for the Eye Styler in Miniut, I didRead More
I received several Clarins products from their Autumn collection this month so I think it’s time to start sharing my opinion.
I will start with the 3-dot liner of course, as it is the most exciting product.
To tell the truth, at first I did not get along with this liner as I couldn’t figure out the best way (angle, pressure etc) to use it. But ever since I have figured out I fell in love. This is a genius Japanese (of course!) idea.
It make take you some time before you figure out how you want to use it and what effect you want to achieve but once you do – it doesn’t take a lot of time and you can get impressive results.
You can just put dots between the lashes for a fuller effect without using a brush and gel liner or putting the dots with an eye pencil. It is so much faster as you get 3 dots with one move.
Moreover, you can draw a regular line, should you wish to. You can achieve both thin or thick line.
I did not use this liner on anyone yet but I have askedRead More
