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

Red(ish) Blushers: Hourglass, Clarins, Benefit, Max Factor and MeMeMe

Since my post about pink blushers got so many views, I’ve decided to write one about reddish ones, too. Do let me know, if you’d like me to choose 5 corals/peaches and berries/plums…

Red(ish) Blushers Hourglass, Clarins, Benefit, Max Factor and MeMeMe

So here is what I’ve picked:

Hourglass Aura Cheek Tint in Flush (review and swatches)

I think that Flush is a perfect name for this sheer water-based blusher, it gives the most natural and beautiful effect.  Cheek Tint is easy to blend, plus it has a nice staying power.

Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush in 18 Soft Cardinal (review and swatches)

This is probably my personal favourite! It is a gorgeous cream blusher with “wet & glossy” texture, it doesn’t enhance any dry patches and looks like a second skin, I use it

Favourite Makeup of 2011: Eye Products

I just love reading the posts and watching videos about favourite products of the year! So, as promised, here is a list of mine.

This year I’ve decided to choose only the most favourite products! I will not post products in ‘each nomination’, just those that really stood out to me.

So here is part one – eye products.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Long Lasting Eye Shadow in Bejewelled Skylark

Definitely my favourite eye shadows of 2011!  Soft, pigmented, long-lasting, easy-to-work-with; the colour is gorgeous, I love such shades for an every day look. I found myself reaching for this product over, and over again. You can read full review with swatches here.

RBR are releasing some new shades of their eye shadows and I can’t wait to see them!

Illamasqua Pure Pigment in Berber

This pigment is one of my favourite Illamasqua products ever! I was extremely excited when it launched, the colour is really beautiful, unique, not boring but totally wearable.  Not only the colour is amazing, the quality is supreme, too.  Read more here.

Berber is on the left, on the right Urban Decay Heat

Hourglass Calligraphy Liquid Eye Liner

This has to be my favourite eye liner of the year. Easy to use (even if you are a beginner), true black colour and great staying power! What else to ask for?

Read more about it + swatches here.

Dior DiorShow Extase Mascara

I think this is

Rave: Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadows in Stiletto. Review and Swatches

Do you know that Benefit’s Ceaseless  Cream Eye Shadows have won a lot of awards? Some of them that are mentioned on their website:

  • 2008 Self Healthy Beauty Award – “best eye shadow”
  • 2008 Star Beauty Awards – “best eye shadow”
  • 2008 Real Simple: Beauty & the Best – Top 20 beauty buys “best eye shadow”

And you know, I would give this product a lot of other awards because these are the best cream eye shadows ever.

So far I have only 2 shades but I will get them all. Why don’t I get them all at once? Because I get them as a small reward for myself. This is just my little secret on how to do some things that I don’t want to do. I get myself something nice after I’ve accomplished my task.

But back to the shadows. This time I am going to tell you about the shade called Stiletto, described as aubergine, which is just perfect for this Fall. My other shade Busy Signal is described as venetian brown and can be found here.

So why do I love it SO much and the swatch

Favourite Beauty Products of August

So it’s time for August favourites! This month I got a lot of new products and here are those that I loved the most.

1 and 2 – Illamasqua’s Precision Inks in Abyss (deepest black) and Alchemy (antique gold). It’s easy to use them, the colours are rich and pigmented and they stay on forever. You can read the detailed review and see the swatches here.

3.Guerlain KissKiss Gloss in Crystal Pearl 800, shimmering iridescent pink.

I’ve been using this gloss all the time and got a lot of compliments and so many people asked me about the colour.  Pale sparkly pinks are my favourite lip glosses so no wonder that I like this one so much. The formula is quite thick and moisturizing. Keep in mind that it’s a scented gloss. Crystal Pearl is beyond gorgeous and it reminds me of my favourite gloss of all times – Mica by Chanel. Detailed review coming later.

4. Rouge Bunny Rouge Decadent Duos Joys and Desires in Rumba Cubana.

This is a nice product which is a liquid blush and a lip gloss. I love multi-purpose travel friendly products and this is one of them. The lip gloss is lovely but the blush is just amazing, I am totally in love. The formula is not heavy at all and it’s easy to
