Lipstick Week: PAT McGRATH LABS Lust 004 Lipstick Kit

Makeup4all will turn 8 this February but somehow I never did any themed weeks yet. But I’ve decided to give it a go, because why not?

So, I announce the Lipstick Week.

I will post about the new releases, will review some lipsticks from my collection and will feature my current favourites, along with the most popular lipstick posts in the last almost 8 years.

Each kit comes it Pat’s signature packaging with sequins and  includes two matte lipsticks, a clear vinyl gloss, a metallic gold pigment, and a microfine glitter.

You can wear the lipsticks on their own or layer the glitter/pigment/gloss for the ombre or multi-dimensional look.

Max Factor Excess Shimmer Eye Shadows Review and Swatches. Rave

Recently I have posted about the top three affordable new makeup launches that caught my attention. And Max Factor actually kindly sent me their new eye shadows to try out.

They have already made an appearance on my Instagram, and now it’s time for a detailed review.

The brand describes the  texture as “3D silicone gel”, and it does feel like a light mousse-y gel  texture (the only similar product that I have, is my favourite cream eye shadow by New CID) which is foolproof.

You can even use the product with your finger and gently blend all over the lid.  The formula is pretty unique, you can sheer it out, or add layers for a more intense effect.

As for the look, yes it is quite shimmery, but it looks pretty!  It never is flat, but instead, gives dimension, and reflects  the light beautifully.

Max Factor Skin Luminizer Foundation Review

Foundation that made it’s début at  Victoria Beckham’s (AW14) show;  with the look  created by Pat McGrath? Need I say more? I am in!

What foundation was that? Max Factor’s Skin Luminizer. I was sent one of the shades, so here are my thoughts:

Max Factor Skin Luminizer Foundation Review and SwatchesI am a big fan of the design, the cool swirly highlighter stripes add something special to it. Both products mix together, as they come out.

The packaging is made of plastic, which may not look  or feel so chic as my favourite, sadly discontinued Second Skin, but it is very handy for travelling and taking it with you, it is very light.

The pump is very well made,  it dispenses even a very small amount of product so you don’t waste any.

What about the foundation itself?

First Look at Dior’s New Eye Shadow Palettes for Fall 2014

If you are into the looks from the Fashion Weeks (I post them here), you probably remember the makeup Pat McGrath created for Dior’s AW14 show got.

The beautiful full-on metallic moss and teal eye looks were stunning, so it was obvious that a lot of people were wondering what eye shadows were used, and here is a sneak preview…
