Top 16 Features of 2016

I remember when I have just launched Makeup4all [almost] 8 years ago now, I  would check the analytics every day, sometimes even more than once. As Metallica’s song goes “Sad But True”.  But lately I check the analytics maybe once a month just to see what features you loved the most to make some conclusions for the upcoming posts.

And here are actually 16 most viewed posts of 2016, and I have included only the features about the products that are still available. I was actually surprised to see the most popular review of 2016 was of a  Rouge Bunny Rouge eye pencil. They have recently launched a new shade, so I better write up about it soon.

I was also a bit surprised to see that Max Factor  reviews got a ridiculous amount of views, and I really did not expect that.  But, to be honest, I am happy, as I have a very special love for Max Factor, not only it was the brand I used to buy as a teenager with my first earned money but also, it was the first brand I have ever worked with for Makeup4all, not to mention the history of the brand, so I am happy that the reviews of their products get so many views, I genuinely love so many of them.

February 2016 Beauty Favourites

It’s time for February favourites, and considering that I was sick for 10+ days in the shortest month of the year, there isn’t that much to show. But here are the products that really stood out to me.

Soap & Glory Whipped Clean Shower Butter (review)

Moisturising shower product that smells of almonds, pistachios and vanilla. Oh, yes! It is an instant cheer-me-up and works great for shaving, too.

Kerastase Mousse Bouffante Luxurious Volumising Mousse

I’ve been on a hunt for a new product for voluminous hair for some time now, and this is the one I’ve picked up, as mentioned here. I was a bit worried, as I haven’t used a mousse in more than 10 years but this one really delivers. Mousse Bouffante creates beautiful big hair without being sticky or making the hair look or feel greasy.

Uriage Gyn-Phy Intimate Hygiene Protective Cleansing Gel

Probably the best product for intimate hygiene I’ve ever used, it is gentle but effective, smells really nice and is a great way to start and finish the day with. We talk so much about facial cleansers and shower gels but not enough about the intimate washes. And this is a great one, go get it.

Artdeco Long Lasting Liquid  Eyeliner in Black 01

Ever since Rouge Bunny Rouge changed the nib of my favourite eye liner, I am on a hunt for a prefect replacement, as it was the one I used pretty much every day. This time I’ve got the ArtDeco one, and it looked almost identical on-line, but unfortunately it is not in real life. However, it is a good one and I hope I will enjoy using it.

Orly Nail Defence Strengthening Protein Treatment

After a very bad experience at a nail salon (this is what happens when you cheat on your manicurist who works far from both your home and work) – I really need to restore my nails,  and this

Kerastase Specifique Bain Stimuliste GL Energizing Shampoo for Thinning Hair Review

I have proclaimed my love for Kerastase products numerous times already, but here it is again.

This time it is all about Specifique Bain Stimuliste GL Energizing Shampoo for Thinning Hair which I have already included in my favourites in the previous month.

Kerastase Specifique Bain Stimuliste GL Energizing Shampoo for Thinning Hair Review

When I was looking for a new Kerastase shampoo, I’ve noticed that this one was among the best sellers and  I also read several great reviews. Moreover, Specifique Bain Stimuliste GL Energizing Shampoo  includes Agrigine + Gluco Lipid and is formulated  for thinning hair. I don’t necessarily have thinning hair but it sheds more than I’d like to, so this is the reason why I’ve decided to choose this one.

I may have looked up “How many hairs do you lose in a day?”… “Losing up to 100 hairs a day is normal. But if hair loss runs in your family, you could lose a lot more hair.”

I know, I know…

So, what about this

September 2015 Beauty Favourites

It’s time for monthly favourites! And this time I’ve decided to mention only those products that I have been really loving. Somehow I have re-discovered 17 Sheer Moisture Foundation which is now discontinued but which has been my base of choice lately, as it gives that beautiful light and glowing finish.

The other product  which is not shown is Garnier HandRepair Intensive Restoring Hand Cream because I have used it all up. And, just like the body cream, this one is brilliant.Works wonders on my very dry hands and feet, it improved the condition [of my skin] dramatically, moisturized and nourished.

Clarins Joli Rouge Lipstick in 738 Royal Plum (review and lip swatches)

I have an old version of the lipstick but I will have a few samples of the new Joli Rouge to review and compare them for you. This is an amazing product! The sheer formula can be built up,  or worn as a barely-there stain.  And this the most beautiful dark plum, looks gorgeous on the lips, have been wearing it non-stop.

The only other makeup product is the new Rouge Bunny Rouge Naked Disguise Glide Concealer. And this, without a doubt, is now one of my favourite concealers ever. The texture is light  but at the same time it transforms the under eye area by brightening and covering the dark circles. It doesn’t look or feel heavy and doesn’t set into the fine lines. I like the brand’s description “your skin but better”, and I agree.
