Weekend Face Of The Day. Vol 1

I’ve stayed most of the Saturday at home as I had guests so wanted to keep it very simple. Here are the products I wore.

Rouge Bunny Rouge’s Tinted Moisturiser Sketches on Water is my latest obsession. It is perfect for winter, it doesn’t enhance any dryness and looks great even on the weather beaten, dehydrated skin! Gives a very natural coverage and people won’t be able to tell that it’s not just your skin.  The coverage is enough for me but you may want to use concealer locally. I use shade Adansonia but you can see my swatches of all shades here.

The brand’s Blush Wand in Rubens is a relatively new product for me but so far I am loving it.

No 7 Spring 2012 Makeup Collection Review, Swatches and Face Of The Day

I have three products from the amazing Lisa Eldridge’s N07 makeup collection for Spring 2012 to show you.

No7 Vital Enlightening Highlighter (10g £13), No7 Vital Brights Cream Blush (2g, £10) in Blooming Pink, bright hot pink and No7 Vital Brights Lipstick (3.5g, £10) in Blooming Pink, hot pink.

First of all I have to say that I really like the flower prints on the packaging and I really wish they’d put at least one on the lipstick tube, too.

I was really excited about the bright pink blush and lipstick when I first saw them. And, let me tell you, both are even better than I’ve hoped they’d be!

I will start with the lipstick as it is my favourite item. It it a perfect bright, hot and vibrant blue based pink which gives a nice glossy texture. The shade is buildable, you can blot it out for a sheer effect or layer it up for a stunning full on colour.

I really like the lipstick’s formula, it is like a

Lumiere Cosmetics Eyes and Cheeks Products. Review and Swatches. Plus A Face OF The Day

When I was asked if I’d like to try Lumiere Cosmetics I was happy to agree since I haven’t tried that many mineral brands plus I thought that it would be an interesting topic for some readers.

I was sent three eye products, one blush, one bronzing blush and two face powders/foundations.

The great thing is that I could actually choose the colours myself which was pretty amazing. So here is what I’ve got.

As for the eye products, I’ve chosen two Glitz and one Eye Shimmer.

All descriptions of the shades are from the website.

Glitz* in Chocolate Covered Cherries, Medium deep berry brown with LOADS of cherry colored sparkles! And Raspberry Truffle, Medium Deep brown with LOADS of raspberry sparkles!

Eye Shimmer* in Black Cherry, Very rich deepened black cherry, with a low sheen that will intensify when foiled. Exciting alternative for contouring and smokey eye effects. Also very pleasing as a liner.

My impression:

I am

Simple Face Of The Day. Bright Lips

Sometimes it is easy to forget that most women (or at least  my friends) don’t have tons of products and they use a very minimum. I was challenged to use only foundation, lipstick, blush, mascara and one more product of my choice.

I’ve decided to make an accent on the lips, add some berry or red blush and keep the eyes very natural. I even thought of skipping the mascara at all but then decided to use a thin coat on the upper lashes.

So here are the products that I’ve chosen.

Max Factor Ageless Elixir 2 in 1 Foundation + Serum. Preview here.

There is no concealer (although I definitely need some), powder or anything else on my face so you can see what effect this foundation gives. So far I

Wearing Today: YSL Summer 2011 Makeup Collection

Here is a quick update on what I am wearing on my face today. Most of the products are  from the YSL summer 2011 makeup collection which I really like. I have to say that I’ve been impressed with the latest YSL collections (and I know that I am not alone), Lloyd Simmonds did a great job!

The duo eye shadow in 35 Caramel Tan, Creme de Blush in N° 4 Audacious Orange and Volupte Sheer Candy in  2 Dewy Papaya. I have to say that  I really like everything especially the blush. Will post detailed reviews and swatches later so stay tuned.
