Here is a preview of yet another Christmas 2016 makeup collections. This time it is Lancome’s release which is all about pinks and purples. Although, these are not the typical “festive” shades, the products still come in those gorgeous glittery golden packaging.

SS19 Bronzers: Lancome, Chanel, Chantecaille, byTerry Clarins and Givenchy

May means that pretty much all of the summer collections are out, including all the pretty bronzers. I have chosen six that caught my eye. But it seems that I will have to feature more a bit later.

Chanel duo bronze et lumièreBronzer And Highlighter Duo, $70 from Chanel

As all bronzers in this feature, it comes in 2 shades: Clair and Medium (shown). You get a matte bronzer and an  iridescent highlighter. I looks pretty perfect to me.

 Lancome  LE FRENCH GLOW , $45 Nordstrom and Saks

How cool are the LIBERTÉ, EGALITÉ, FEMININITÉ writings on the bronzer?  You get 4 shades in each compact to bronze and contour. You can get 1 Warm Liberte  or 2 Warm Sensualite.

Clarins Bronzing Compact, $45 from Saks, Nordstrom

Clarins summer bronzers are some of the best on the market, I still really love

Favourite Beauty Products Of 2012: Makeup

Before I start, I have to say that it was very hard to narrow my list  of favourite makeup products of 2012 but I’ve tried my best.

Let’s take a look at what I’ve chosen…

Face

Benefit Erase Paste

I don’t really use concealer on a daily basis, unless I have a new, really bad spot,  I just use Touche Eclat under my eyes and that’s all. But if I had to choose my favourite “concealer” type of product – that would be this one. It is a creamy peach corrector which works great for the  dark under eyes circles. I had a review of it but because of some tech problems, it was deleted, need to re-write it soon.

Omorovicza Complexion Perfector BB SPF 20 

One of my favourite face products you can read the details why here. If you can afford it, I would definitely recommend.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Tinted Moisturiser Sketches on Water

This gives a very natural finish and light coverage and you can’t see it on the face, at all! Miracle for dry skin in cold weather, as it doesn’t enhance any dry patches.  See all the shade available here.

Daniel Sandler Invisible Radiance Foundation and Concealer

It is a very nice foundation that gives a dewy finish so works great for my dry skin. The shade Porcelain is a great fit for fair skin and works for me in AW, in SS, I use the second lightest shade – Beige. Plus it comes with concealer which is a great deal for the price. Want to know more?

BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl

This product probably doesn’t even need an introduction. It’s the best highlighter out there, it gives a  very natural and beautiful effect.

Cheeks

Wow, I was able to choose only three blushers, although I was very tempted to add more of them.

BECCA Cream Blush in Amaryllis 

My favourite blush for AW months, perfect cool toned and natural looking, gives a nice

Lancome Absolute Rose Makeup Collection for Spring 2017

Spring is all about the fresh pinks, lavenders and blues makeup-wise, and Lisa Eldridge did a great job capturing all that and  the signature Lancome’s rose in a beauty collection. There are some very cool and innovative products, too.

Let’s take a look.

The star product is definitely the La Rose Blush Powder  which comes in the rose shape, and  truly looks incredible. It is encapsulated in a 50’s French-inspired Bijou box, the product itself is a highlighting luminous powder.  There is a also Kabuki Brush   which comes in a LE  rose gold design.

The other really cool idea is to combine a high-pigmented matte formula on one end, and a cushion on the other. Le Stylo Parisian Lips  come in four shades: 01 Bonjour Bonheur, 02 Rose Mon Amour,  03 Je M Appelle Rose and
