Since so many of you enjoyed the post about my “Current top 5 affordable makeup products” I wrote back in Mach, I’ve decided to write the same feature, but about luxury products.
And, I am pretty sure, regular readers won’t be surprised at all.
Especially to see Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in 04 Petal Shimmer (review and swatches) and Lancome Le Crayon Khol in Brun Noir (review and swatches) on the list. Are you bored of these yet? I just can’t help myself, I do love both products a lot and refuse to be without them.
Lanocome’s perfect dark brown eye pencil is the one that I use on myself at least several times per week, and I have at least one shade of the Clarins’ lip glosses in my bag, or even in my coat pocket.
I also need to have nice-looking brows, that’s were Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Soft Brunette (review and swatches) helps a lot. It is super quick and easy to use, and you get a fuller, but notRead More
Another month, another “Top 5” from one of my favourite brands. And this time it’s all about Daniel Sandler Cosmetics.
For those who are new to the line, I’d describe it a brand with high-performing and great quality products that cost less than your “luxury brand products” but deliver the same results. Plus there are quite a few unique and innovative offerings.
So here is what I’ve chosen. Please note that the photos are taken in direct sunlight.
1.Invisible Radiance Foundation and Concealer
I have mentioned this product so many times already that, I think, you all know by now how much I like it. It is definitely one of the best “base” products I have tried. It works amazing for my dry skin – evens out the skin tone and gives a beautiful glowing/dewy finish. To read a detailed review click here.
2. Watercolour Blushers
These are unique liquid blushers that are absolutely fantastic. I have written about them so many times, that I’ll just include the links, so that you can read everything you need to know and see the swatches here, here and here. I also have tips from Daniel himself on how you can use his most famous creation!
3. Watercolour Creme RougeRead More
I have been shopping my stash lately, re-discovering a lot of amazing products that I have and have been experimenting with my makeup quite a lot, too.
I usually go for berry or cool toned shades but lately I have been going for coral/orange quite a lot actually.
Here are the products that I have used today…
I have started with a foundation that is a bit darker and warmer than my skin tone but still looks natural and gives a beautiful glowing finish – Daniel Sandler’s Invisible Radiance Foundation and Concealer in Beige.
The main thing about this look was the vibrant coral blush, Benefit ChaCha Tint which instantly brightened up everything. And since I kept the rest of makeup pretty much neutral – it was a great pop of colour.
I have used my trustedRead More
I’ve stayed most of the Saturday at home as I had guests so wanted to keep it very simple. Here are the products I wore.
Rouge Bunny Rouge’s Tinted Moisturiser Sketches on Water is my latest obsession. It is perfect for winter, it doesn’t enhance any dryness and looks great even on the weather beaten, dehydrated skin! Gives a very natural coverage and people won’t be able to tell that it’s not just your skin. The coverage is enough for me but you may want to use concealer locally. I use shade Adansonia but you can see my swatches of all shades here.
The brand’s Blush Wand in Rubens is a relatively new product for me but so far I am loving it.

I am excited to show you these beautiful Long Lasting Waterproof Eyeliners by Daniel Sandler.
First of all, I have to say that I really love the design, it looks very elegant and chic. These are the kind of eye pencils that are a pleasure to use.
I love how thin the eye liners are and that you actually don’t need to sharpen them, it’s a great plus if you ask me.
These are actually great to use on the upper inner rim of the eye (which I love doing) since these liners are so thin. Daniel Sandler eye pencils are also great for the using as an eye liner if you are not confident with the liquid or gel one, as it allows you to create a thin (or thick if you want) line.Read More
