Finished Makeup Products: Daniel Sandler, Clarins and L’Oreal

I rarely post beauty empties, as I don’t like gathering empty bottles and I do finish a lot of them, but it is different with makeup, I barely ever finish anything, so having three empties is a big deal. Plus I  really love all of them, so it was worth mentioning…

Daniel Sandler Invisible Radiance Foundation and Concealer (review)

This is the second foundation I have ever finished in my life. The first one was Max Factor’s Second Skin which was the best affordable foundation on the market, in my opinion (it is sadly discontinued). Invisible Radiance Foundation and Concealer is a great choice if you want  a medium, natural looking coverage and a beautiful glowing finish.

Paul & Joe Makeup Collection for Autumn 2015

Do you remember that cat lipsticks from Paul & Joe back from 2010? Since that collection the brand brought out some cat inspired products from time to time. Like this Autumn they are brining out some kitty products, too.

Here is a preview of the coolest lipstick, with kitten packaging and a kitty on top. Can there be such thing as too many cats? And that eye shadows with the grumpy cat? Now, that is cool.

Here is also one shade of blush with the same design, as the lipstick.

In general there are three variations of

Optimistic Blush and Lipstick

I can get inspiration for the posts pretty much from everything, and often it is music.

The other day I have been listening to this song (The Echo Friendly “Panic” here)  with the  following lyrics: “Put on my blush and lipstick and try to look optimistic”.I was having a rough time, so it made me think…

Makeup can be seen [and often is] as something shallow, and vain, but it is not necessarily so. If it makes you feel better, and lifts up your spirits, why not using it?

Of course, it won’t change the situation, but it can be a great distraction, and even “help”, during the worst times.

I think it is easy to get all apathetic when it’s hard to see the reasons to keep going. But, when you make an effort and put on makeup, do your hair and nails, and spritz your favourite perfume – it makes a difference. Trust me, I know what I am talking about. After all, how can looking bad when you feel bad can help?

And… what are my “optimistic” shades of blush and lipstick. Definitely

5 Weekdays – 5 Lipsticks

My personal lipstick  drawer is getting out of control. But I keep using the same products over, and over again. So last week I’ve decided to plan my “weekday lipstick wardrobe” in advance. Here are the five products I’ve chosen:

5 Weekdays - 5 Lipsticks BECCA, Hourglass, Rouge Bunny Rouge, Clarins, Elis Faas

BECCA Ultimate Matte Lip Colour in Eloise (review and lip swatches)

This is the lightest shade of all and the only matte formula from the selection. Eloise is a beautiful baby pink that suits any look, just make sure that your lips are in a great condition, as otherwise it may enhance the dry patches.

I have been loving this lipstick recently,  it feels extremely comfortable on the lips, hydrating and moisturizing. Plus it gives

Ellis Faas Hot Lips Review and Swatches L406 and L408. Rave

I already did a preview of the  Ellis Faas Hot Lips, and here I have two (out of nine) shades to show you.

They come in a hot pink packaging which is similar to the shade on the model’s face from the promo.

Let me tell you – it.is. amazing!

You get an uber pigmented  and  very long lasting lip product (liquid lipstick? hybrid of a gloss and stain?).  You literally need the tiniest amount to get a full-on colour that applies evenly and  smoothly.  And it stays on for hours, survives teas and
