In summer, when the temperature raises, we still want out makeup to stay put, the same comes for when we are on a holiday, swimming in the sea or a pool (if you do wear makeup for that).
This is when waterproof and long-lasting makeup is our best friend. Luckily, these days quite a few brands offer a good selection of products to choose from! One of them is Make Up For Ever .
Let’s take a look at their latest seasonal offering - Aqua Summer.
There are quite a few new products from the Aqua range.
Aqua Rouge: a poppy coral that lights up the 2013 look, fuchsia, pomegranate, baby pink, and pale orange.
Aqua Lip: a deep pink pomegranate and a frosty pale pink.
Since yesterday we were talking about some new launches for lips, let’s take a look at some new products for the eyes today.
Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tint for Eyes ($16/£16) are finally here! And these are promised to be lightweight, creamy, long-wearing and versatile.
There are twelve shades: nudes and browns, greens, pinks and purples, also blues and grey. I personally like quite a few shades.
Bountiful Beige, Ample Amber, Lots O’Latte, Fuller Fudge, Whopping Willow andRead More
I am a huge fan of cream eye shadows and had these for almost a year already, so I have no idea why I never wrote about them.
But it’s better late than never, so today I want to tell you about Laura Mercier’s Metallic Crème Eye Colour (£ 18.50/$22).
I actually have three shades but, since one (Malachite) was a limited edition shade, will show you only two. I’ve got them in a set, so originally these eye shadows are bigger than those that I have.
Platinum – shimmering champagne, Rose Gold – shimmery rose gold
Light frost eye shadows are a big NO for me, so I was a bit worried about these shades. But Laura Mercier knows how to do a nice light metallic shade without it looking too frosted and glittery. It is shimmery, yes, but it is very wearable and, I could even say - subtle.
The formula is really nice, non-greasy, lightweight and, most importantly, you can get a sheer or full-on effect. I actually love applying these eye shadows with my fingers as such method allows to get a very thin layer which does not sit on top of skin but blends it beautifully.
I love using Platinum andRead More
