A lot of people read a post about my October beauty favourites.

Red lipstick – my ultimate makeup love, so I had to do this round-up.

Luxury beauty products are amazing, but sometimes affordable ones are just as good (minus the chic packaging). My current top 5.

Not gonna lie, October was a rough month for me, a lot of stress and lack of sleep. Most of the time I don’t bother with a good base that much, but this month I was constantly “rocking” dark circles, horrible skin-tone and even some breakouts. I just looked very tired in general.

So to imitate the “I-am-doing-great-thanks” skin I was using my favourite Pearl Shimmering Skin Perfector by BECCA all over the face as a base to give me some glow. Since I have very dry skin, it did not look greasy or shiny on me, in fact, I loved the effect.

Then I followed with ¬†Clarins’ Tinted Moisturizer, which is one of my favourite products for face, ever. Read the review to find out why it is that special.

If you read this post, you probably know that I have been ignoring the blushers lately.  So, of course I had to include

Affordable Cream Eye Shadows Worth Your Attention

Recently I fell completely¬† in love with the new Max Factor’s Shimmer Excess release, so I’ve decided to make a round-up of my favourite affordable cream eye shadows in general.

All of them are definitely worth the attention, and they prove that you don’t need to pay a fortune to get a high quality makeup these days.

I have published detailed reviews about each in the past, so if you want to know more – just click the links, included in this feature.

These have a very light texture, give a beautiful dimensional shimmer and stay on really well. Can be used on their own, or on top of any other product. Gorgeous effect, a must-have.

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.

Max Factor Excess Shimmer Eye Shadows Review and Swatches Onyx and Crystal shades 1And, let me tell you, these eye shadows are absolutely brilliant!  I was a bit worried that with the name Excess Shimmer it could be an overkill (not a fan of too much glitter), but it is not Рspot on, in fact!

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.
