I wanted to buy Inglot’s Duraline for ages, and I finally did it last month!
What is it exactly? The brand describes it as a “ silicone polymer forms a breathable film while this waterless clear liquid transforms any powder into an intense easy to apply liquid.”
It sounds like a must have for any make-up artist or beauty lover, as the possibilities are endless. But does it really work?
Last week was a very busy one for me and I hardly got any sleep, so in the mornings it was a big challenge to a) get out of my bed b) look half decent. This made me analyse what products I was reaching for in such situation makeup wise.
Since you want to look radiant and glowing and not shimmering, shiny and “sweaty” don’t go overboard with the products you use. One illuminating/highlighting product is enough, and it’s up to you to decide on which stage you’d like to use one.
It can be a primer and my pick would be Illamasqua’s Satin Primer, as it gives a beautiful healthy sheen to the [dry] skin. But if sheen is not enough for you, there are a lot of primers with delicate shimmer on the market, so you can go for one of those.
Illuminating bases (foundations and tinted moisturizers) are a big hit, as you can
This is why I was extremely happy to recieve this information the other day!
I just have to share it with you:
Patricia Regan, the head make-up artist for PAN AM, worked closely with Chad and Scott, owners of 3 Custom Color, to create a working palette for the show inspired by the 1960′s stewardesses handbook that, amongst other things, required the gals to ‘Wear a defined eye and coral lips and cheeks’.
“My inspiration comes from extensive photographs of 1963—fashion, documentary, and people, as well as Pan Am history,” says Regan. “I try to combine the style of the past and with the tools of the present to give a fresh new look!” Here’s how she achieved it.
1) Apply a matte-finish foundation, plus I love to use the 3 Custom Clarifying pencil on the inside step to really brighten eyes.
2) Brows are
The cult product Touche Eclat which was originally launched in 1992, is now available in several shades.
I actually really like this part of the press release: “Golden radiance, inspired by sunlight, and developed to reveal a woman’s most precious quality.”
As you probably know, Touche Eclat a concealer, corrector and highlighter in one product. I also like the idea that you can use a darker shade for contouring on fairer complexions, or a lighter shade for highlights on darker skintones. I will have to try that out.
The shades are:
- No.1 Luminous Radiance: The ultimate highlighter
- No.1.5 Luminous Silk: For fair complexions with pink undertones
- No.2 Luminous Ivory: For fair complexions with golden undertones
- No.3 Light Peach: For warm and golden-beige complexions
- No.5 Luminous Honey: For Mediterranean complexions
- No.6 Luminous Amber: For Mixed African complexions
- No.7 Luminous Mocha: For dark complexions. Specially designed for the UK market.
I’ve got so many great tips on how you can try using your Touche Eclat that I just have to share some of them. All tips are from
I already featured the famous Daniel Sandler Watercolours here but I think it’s time to write a full review and swatch all the shades that I have.
Some people commented that they’ve never heard of this brand and of Daniel himself. Daniel Sandler is a British celebrity Make-Up artist and a co-fonder of the Daniel Sandler Cosmetics. To find out more check out the official website. I also recommend you watching some videos with Daniel as he is very talented and charming, a pleasure to watch.
But what about the blushes?
These are probably the most famous Daniel’s products, they even brought him his first beauty award from the Grazia magazine.
First of all I have to say that I’ve wanted to try them for a long time so I was really happy to get three shades to try out. And here are some of my thoughts and, what is really exciting, tips from Daniel himself that he shared with us!
Here are my thoughts:
- I perfectly understand why these are so popular, as they are a pleasure to use, the package is cute and you can see the colour itself. The formula is really nice.
- There is a great variety of shades for everyone, they all are really beautiful.
- The pigmentation is insane! You only need a tiny amount of the product so the bottle will last you forever.
- But my favourite thing about the Watercolours is actually how long-lasting they are. I would even say that these may be the most long-lasting blushes I’ve ever used. These are definitely there by the end of the day.
- Although they stay on so well, it’s not hard to remove them, you won’t have to scrub your face to get them off.
- The price is really reasonable for the quality (£14.50 which is less than $25). You can buy them here with the International shipping.
The shades that I have are:
