Makeup4all 15 Makeup Favourites of 2015

Ok, I am finally doing it!  Writing 2015 yearly favourites that is.  The thing is when I started writing this post I’ve gathered so many products that I’d be going on, and on about them all. This is why here are 15 I loved the most. 15 since it was 2015, yes, I know…

Makeup4all 15 Makeup Favourites of 2015

If I had to choose only 1 product that would probably be Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in 25 Alluring Rose (review and swatches)

Long-time readers know how much I love my blushers. And this year it was all about this one, I’ve barely used anything else.  Creme Puff Blush gives that luminous glow that instantly brightens up the complexion. The formula is incredibly soft and smooth and blends into the skin beautifully. I have several shades but Alluring Rose is the love of my [beauty] love.

The other favourite is still my Trish McEvoy Golden Bronzer (review). As you can see from the photo above, it is very well loved. It warms up the complexion without looking orange or muddy.  I  like the hint of radiance it gives, too.

BECCA’s Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl (review) is still the best glow-and-radiance-in-a-bottle product out there.  I usually mix it with foundation  to make my skin look “healthy”. This formula and shade = perfection.

If I had to pick only one “foundation” of the year – that’d be Clarins HydraQuench Tinted Moisturizer (review and swatches), hands down. It is dry skin’s best friend. Clarins know how to

Finished Makeup Products: Clarins, YSL and Benefit

Turns out it is possible to finish makeup! And recently I did use up three products from my personal makeup bag. The fact that I did stick to these products and used them till the very “last drop” means only one thing – these are among my favourites.

Makeup YSL Touche Eclate, Clarins Instant Light lip perfector, Benefit brow pencilYes, the eye brow pencil is not finished completely, but if I waited a bit longer, I’d have nothing to take a picture of.

Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat

This is one of the most loved product in the “Beauty World” and that’s easy to understand why. It instantly changes the way your under eye area looks, brightens all the darkness and  visually lifts up the eye. If you have really dark circles, make sure that you use concealer before Touche Eclat.  You can also use the product as your regular highlighter, when you want a natural and subtle effect.  If you want to know about other ways you can use Touche Eclat click here.

February 2013 Beauty Favourites

It’s time for February favourites. Can’t believe that I am doing this on time!

In my January favourites  (still loving those products a lot) I’ve talked about makeup only, so I’ve promised to include some other beauty products this time, so I am keeping my promise.

Nails

LVX Sanguine Nail Lacquer

I am very impressed with this nail polish, it is amazing. I have written about it last week and actually forgot to mention that I was also very impressed with how quickly it dries,  even without a top coat.

Revlon Nail Polish in Revlon Red

I did not like Revlon nail polishes at first,  mostly because of the long and thin brushes. But practice makes perfect and now my application techniques improved a lot. Plus I really love this shade of red, wore it twice in February.

Makeup

YSL Eye Shadow Duo in 35 Caramel Tan/Burnt Brown

I thought that it was a LE, so I did not talk that much about this little gem, otherwise I would. I love it to pieces and use it a lot.  This is in my top 5 eye shadows that I own, for sure. Perfect reddish brown, matte and

Favourite Beauty Products of 2012: Nails

The list of my favourite makeup products  of 2012  was too long already for me to include nail products, too.So here is a separate one.

I’ve decided to be very strict with myself and choose only two nail polishes, one for SS and the other for AW as, otherwise, I would just go on, and on…

OPI Every Month Is Oktoberfest

This is a gorgeous colours, when I saw the promo photo, I knew I had to get it. But when I saw the first swatches on-line, I’ve ordered it as soon as it was available.  OPI have a lot of beautiful complex dark nail polishes and Every Month Is Oktoberfest  is one of them. I wear mine a lot, in fact, I have it on as I type. See it on my nails here.

 Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Nomad

And this was my favourite SS nail polish, such a perfect jade colour. There are a lot of  variations of jade from different brands, but I think this is my favourite.  Plus I am a big fan of Illamasqua’s nail varnishes. By the way, I had it on my toes during my summer holiday. And here is manicure with this shade.

As for other products, I have to mention
