My Contouring: NYX Taupe

Since we are talking about contouring today, I thought I’d show the product that I use on myself…

I did a very detailed review of it, with the photos of it applied, too. You can read and see all the pictures here. And this is just a quick update on how much I love it.

My Current Favourite Cheek Products

Have you got colour in your cheeks? Yes, that is  Arctic Monkeys “Do I Wanna Know?” (listen )

This song actually inspired me to write about my current favourite cheek products. But, and this will be a shock for regular readers, I have been neglecting blushes lately.  Yes, really.

And here are the two products that I have been using religiously lately…

My Current Favourite Cheek Products NYX taupe and Trish McEvoy bronzer

TrishMcEvoy Golden Bronzer and NYX Blush in Taupe.

Trish’s bronzer is probably my favourite out of all that I own. It is not too dark, too orange/muddy/shimmery/you name it. It warms up the complexion, and adds just the right amount of glow thanks to the delicate shimmer. Golden Bronzer looks amazing even on my light skin tone. Moreover, it is very finely milled, so blends beautifully and looks natural. Brilliant product. Maybe this will be the first ever bronzer that I use up?

You can buy Trish McEvoy from SelfridgesNordstrom and Neiman Marcus.

March 2014: My Current Top 5 Affordable Makeup Products

I love my luxury beauty products!  I perfectly understand,  that is not a necessity but an indulgent, and also I  get that not everyone wants to spend that much on a makeup product. In fact, I often get asked about the affordable products that I would recommend.

So I’ve decided to feature five products that I’ve been really loving lately. I could, of course, add more, but these are the best for me, now.

Max Factor Excess Volume Extreme Impact Mascara (review)

I use  this mascara daily now! It is ultra black and glossy and gives great volumizing effect, exactly what I love. For me it’s “go big, or go home” when it comes to mascara.

NYX Taupe Blush (review and swatches)

Another product that I use almost daily. It blends nicely into the skin and gives a natural sculpting effect, nothing muddy or orange.
