Favourite Beauty Products of July

Some of my readers told me that they would love to see more posts about the drugstore makeup. So I thought, why not? For the last several weeks I’ve been testing some drugstore makeup items that I was able to find in my collection.

So in July’s favourites I’ve included some of those products.

1.Too Faced Natural Eye Palette

I got this palette back in fall and even made swatches but I just forgot about it until I’ve found it this month.  You get 9 pretty eye shadows both matte and shimmery finish. I got mine from the USA for $35. I will be sure to write a detailed review with swatches as soon as I can.

2.Max Factor Lash Extension Effect mascara

I’ve been using this mascara a lot and I love how it divides the lashes and it works perfect for the lower lashes. You can read review and see photos of it here.

3.Max Factor Second Skin foundation in Creamy Ivory

This is one of the best foundations I’ve ever tried and  you can find out why here.

4.BECCA Jewel Dust in Asrai

First of all I have to say that I love the package, not only it’s gorgeous but it also has small holes in it so the product stays inside the container. And also, althought it’s not glass, the package doen’t look cheap! As for the shade, it’s so beautiful: iridescent pink with some small glitter. I love dusting it over the cream eye shadows. I promise to write a review later.

5.Rimmel Colour Show Off Lipstick in Pink Gossip

It’s a hot pink lipstick which stays on for a very long time and is great for summer. But I only

Make Up For Ever Tres Vichy Collection for Spring 2011

While the fall 2010 collection by MUFE was all about the glamour, red and black and the holiday collection was all about the ROCK this collection is for the girly girls who love everything cute and pink.

The collection was inspired by  Brigitte Bardot and is called Tres Vichy.

Seems like “Bardot style” will be a hot trend for this Spring but it seems that people are never tired of seeing more of her!

So the collection includes:

Star Powder Diamond

Make Up For Ever A Midnight Dream Makeup Collection for Christmas 2013

Christmas/New Year  holidays – the season for some glamorous and festive makeup!  I am personally not exactly a fan of glitter and shimmer but I don’t mind a bit of it on such occasion.

Luckily, beauty brands offer tonnes of appropriate products to choose from.

If you are feeling brave you can re-create the look from the promo image from the new Make Up For Ever’s collection –  A Midnight Dream.

If that is too much, go for a subtle version of it, several crystal would be enough.
