Spring Makeup: Corals & Peaches

Spring is here, so is the sunshine! And with such weather girls usually want to add some fresh and bright colours to their face.  And although I personally love cool tones more (on myself), corals and peaches are the in favour of most people.

In fact, even I am wearing some of those shades today. But nothing to neon and in-your-face, so it will suit most people.

To be precise:  Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream in #5, a gorgeous peach with golden shimmer on my eyes! Yes, really, I think it looks stunning on the eyes but you could wear it on the cheek and lips, too. It’s such a universal product.

And Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in 05 Candy Shimmer  which gives just the right amount of colour and brings some “life” to the face.

I am using a mix of blushers today but you could go for  Jouer Cosmetics Cheek & Lip Tint in Petal to keep up with the whole theme.

It is fun experimenting with

Clarins Gloss Prodige in 09 Water Lily Review and Lip Swatches. Rave

Clarins lip balms/glosses are among my favourites and I rate them highly!

I have actually already written about all of the ranges the brand has, except the Prodige Gloss.

You can read about  Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balms, Colour Quench Lip Balms and my favourite Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector.

So now it’s time for  Gloss Prodige (£15.50) and it’s the shade from the Spring 2013 collection which is called Water Lily.

As all other Clarins glosses, this one is very “balmy”, it feels very hydrating (the formula contains hyaluronic acid) and moisturizing on the lips, without being too heavy or sticky. I find that such formula/texture is perfect for cold weather, as it helps to keep my lips in a good condition.

Prodige Gloss comes in a beautiful package, very high-end, and has a sponge applicator that bends.  This gloss has a strong fruity scent, which I personally like, but some may not.   It is written that it’s blackberry and

Favourite Makeup Of 2010: Products For Lips

You can check the posts about my favourite makeup products for face here and my favourite makeup products for eyes here. And now it’s time for the lip products!

Now my aim was not to tell you the winner in each nomination. Like best lipstick/gloss/liner etc. I just wanted to mention the products that really impressed me this year. So this is why you have 4 lipsticks, lip gloss and a balm.

Here we go…

Lipsticks

Hourglass Femme Rouge Lipstick (luxury)

Now this is the best lipstick that I’ve tried in a long time. It seems that it’s impossible not to like it! I know that so many of you are waiting for a review, so stay tuned for it in 2011 to find out why I like it so much.


Revlon Matte Lipstick

I love matte lipsticks, I really do. And I find that these lipsticks by Revlon are pretty amazing especially for the price. Just make sure that your lips are in a nice condition before you use this or any other matte lipstick. To tell the truth, I wouldn’t mind having the whole range. Red review here and see the lip swatches here.

Rimmel Colour Show Off Lipstick

Yet another matte and affordable lipstick. I’ve got myself 3 shades and I adore them all. This lipstick is super pigmented and stays on for a very long time, the price is also a bonus. I wish they had the other design but that’s not the most important thing really.

Review and swatches here and here.


Inglot Gel Lipstick

These lipsticks are amazing, the gel texture is brilliant, it’s quite

Guerlain KissKiss Gloss in Crystal Pearl. Review and Lip Swatches

Every time I am wearing Guerlain’s KissKiss gloss I get a lot of compliments. All shades are very pretty but my absolute favourite is  #800 Crystal Pearl which is described as shimmering iridescent pearl.

The design is beautiful and the shade looks amazing even in the tube, so imagine how gorgeous it looks on the lips!

This gloss has a convenient small brush which is easy to use. KissKiss makes your lips look shiny and sparkly. The product stays on for quite a long time and it feels great on the lips. Please keep in mind that it has quite a strong scent but I personally don’t mind.

You should get this gloss if  you like:

Levres Scintillantes Glossimer by Chanel. Review & Lip Swatches

I promised to write some reviews about my favourite products. So today I will write the review of my favourite lip gloss! And it’s Levres Scintillantes Glossimer by Chanel. Althougth I like Aqualumieres I like Glossimers better. I already made a post about Glossimers but here is the detailed review and lip swatches of one of my favourite shades – Mica. I’ve chosen Mica because this shade will look perfect on every woman!

This how the gloss looks like in real life + packaging. I say it’s absolutely gorgeous!

This is what Chanel writes about the gloss:

“A long-lasting, ultra-gloss look; intense colours and a perfect finish. The gel texture, fluid yet substantial, is easy to apply, giving a perfectly even finish. The smooth formula keeps your lips comfortable.

A gelling agent of mineral origin supplies fluidity and body. Esters ensure glide-on application and optimum evenness of the gloss. They provide smoothness and emollience. Syrupy organic polymers contribute to the lasting quality of the gloss. Contents : 5.5 g.”

As I already said this is my favourite gloss. Everything is perfect in it!

  • The design is absolutely amazing.
  • It really moisturizes your lips.
  • It stays on for a very long time.
  • It is perfect for every season because it protects your lips even better than some lip balms.
  • Glossimer has a perfect  formula and finish and I love how it looks and feels on the lips.
  • It is very easy to apply this gloss (it has an applicator while Aqualumiere has a brush).
  • Unlike some glosses that look terrible on your lips when they are dry this gloss doesn’t have such effect. Moreover it helps you in this situation and makes your lips soft and smooth.
