Bobbi Brown Sheer Lip Gloss in Almost Peach and  Sparkle Eye Shadow in Golden Peach spring 2015 review and swatches

 Sparkle Eye Shadow in Golden Peach

I really like Bobbi’s eye shadows in sparkle formula, and I use my Black Chocolate one pretty often. I think this is just the best eye shadow type to use for a night out, it looks absolutely gorgeous in the  artificial light, the sparkles are truly beautiful.  In the day time, it may not be appropriate for an office work if you layer it all over the lid but would be great for adding just a bit of dimension in the center of the lid. Also, it looks a lot more subtle in the day light.

And the formula is smooth and not gritty at all, I think they’ve nailed it.  If there is a shade that you like – I would

Clarins Must Haves: 3 Pink Lip Products

Regular readers will know that I am a huge fan of Clarins lip products and baby pink is my “nude”. This is why I’ve decided to share my top 3 Clarins pink lip products that are my personal must haves.

I did a detailed review of each so I won’t say a lot this time but will just mention that all three are phenomenal, they all are like a mix of lip treatment and a beautiful colour glosses. Smell amazing and feel nice when applied. It only depends on the applicator and the effect that you want on your lips:

Clarins Lip Balm Crayons Review and Swatches

Clarins make the best lip products, so I knew that their version of lip crayons, which came out as a part of summer’s Colours of Brazil collection, would be amazing.

Clarins’ Lip Crayons have a luminous glossy finish, and give just enough of “statement” on the lips . They are basically like a balm in a stick form that give you a pretty pop of colour for summer. I find that

Max Factor Colour Elixir Gloss Nude Pomade Collection Review and Swatches

Nude lip products aren’t something that I get excited about, but the new  Max Factor  Colour Elixir Gloss collection called Nude Pomade are pretty awesome.

This limited edition release was created by an amazing MUA Caroline Barnes, and they actually are a  homage to Mr Max’s first ever lip gloss, Lip Pomade, which he created in 1920’s.

Max Factor Nude Pomade Lip Gloss Collection Review and Swatches

There are four shades, and here is Caroline’s inspiration behind each one, and also her tips. Plus my comments.

10 Pristine Nude

Caroline: “This is an ultimate nude lip colour and it should be part of every woman’s make-up bag. Suiting all skin tones, it’s my make-up staple. It will perk up your look and create a natural, healthy look when you’re feeling lacklustre.”

Actually, this lip gloss is now a part of my makeup bag, too.   It is sheer enough so that my natural lip colour shows through plus it is not a concealer like “dead looking” dated nude.  It has pretty  mauve/pink undertones, and should look amazing on a lot of women. My personal favourite.

15 Radiant Rose

Caroline: “This shade conveys an expensive lips – with accents of champagne it’s the most subtle gloss in my collection. It will have an incredible lip shaping appearance with its gold flecks and will suit all skin tones.”

This is a beautiful warm-toned shimmering lip gloss, which I personally love paired with matte eye makeup and a liner, it adds just the right amount of glow, plus it makes the

Lips Of The Day: BM Beauty Mineral Lip Gloss in Nude

I have promised a lip swatch of one of my favourite lip products  – BM Beauty Mineral Lip Gloss in Nude. So here it is…

BM beauty?! Yes, it is not the brand that you hear about very often.  I was sent some of their products a long time ago, and I felt absolutely in love with the brush and lip gloss (you can read a feature here).

I already wrote about the gloss, so won’t repeat myself, but it really is unlike anything else  that I have.  Maybe it’s because I don’t really have  any experience with mineral indie lip products?!
