Tag: shimmering eye shadows
Like it or not, but most Autumn 2018 makeup collections are already available, even thought you may not have had your summer holiday yet.
And here are the new launches that stood out to me, and I have chosen something for the lips, eyes and face.
First of all, there is a new make-up artist’s makeup line on the block. This time Gucci Westman finally revealed her long awaited collection. Apparently, the procuts not only work as makeup but also should improve the skin.
I love the chic and modern look of the packaging, and would love to try the liquid blushes myself. So far the line is available from Barney’s ,and I would not mind trying the Baby Cheeks Blush Stick, $50.
- Organic jojoba oil: tones and restores skin.
- China clay: absorbs excess oil.

- Biomimicry technology: locks in hydration and guards against environmental impurities.
- Biomimicry pigments: impart vibrant color to the skin.
- Formulated without parabens, PEG, talc, phthalates, synthetic fragrances.
Sounds great, right?

Can you believe that it’s almost the end of Autumn? I was actually curious to see what were the most popular features in the last month, and here are the results.
Review of the new fantastic shimmer eye shadows from Max Factor – it is love.
A lot of people read a post about my October beauty favourites.
Red lipstick – my ultimate makeup love, so I had to do this round-up.
Luxury beauty products are amazing, but sometimes affordable ones are just as good (minus the chic packaging). My current top 5.
Cheek products that have been rocking my world lately. Inspired by the
I love writing Monthly Beauty Favourites posts, they make me analyse what products I used the most, and loved the best. I am also always happy when you find a good product through my recommendations 😉
Not gonna lie, October was a rough month for me, a lot of stress and lack of sleep. Most of the time I don’t bother with a good base that much, but this month I was constantly “rocking” dark circles, horrible skin-tone and even some breakouts. I just looked very tired in general.
So to imitate the “I-am-doing-great-thanks” skin I was using my favourite Pearl Shimmering Skin Perfector by BECCA all over the face as a base to give me some glow. Since I have very dry skin, it did not look greasy or shiny on me, in fact, I loved the effect.
Then I followed with Clarins’ Tinted Moisturizer, which is one of my favourite products for face, ever. Read the review to find out why it is that special.
If you read this post, you probably know that I have been ignoring the blushers lately. So, of course I had to include
Recently I fell completely in love with the new Max Factor’s Shimmer Excess release, so I’ve decided to make a round-up of my favourite affordable cream eye shadows in general.
All of them are definitely worth the attention, and they prove that you don’t need to pay a fortune to get a high quality makeup these days.
I have published detailed reviews about each in the past, so if you want to know more – just click the links, included in this feature.
Max Factor Excess Shimmer Eye Shadows (review and swatches)
These have a very light texture, give a beautiful dimensional shimmer and stay on really well. Can be used on their own, or on top of any other product. Gorgeous effect, a must-have.
Maybelline Color Tattoo 24Hr (Permanent Taupe, Eternal Bronze, On and On Bronze; Metallic Pomegranate)
Color Tattoos did get a lot of hype when they were brought out. And rightly so! Opaque colours, blendable texture and long-lasting formula. Metallic
Recently I have posted about the top three affordable new makeup launches that caught my attention. And Max Factor actually kindly sent me their new eye shadows to try out.
They have already made an appearance on my Instagram, and now it’s time for a detailed review.
And, let me tell you, these eye shadows are absolutely brilliant! I was a bit worried that with the name Excess Shimmer it could be an overkill (not a fan of too much glitter), but it is not – spot on, in fact!
The brand describes the texture as “3D silicone gel”, and it does feel like a light mousse-y gel texture (the only similar product that I have, is my favourite cream eye shadow by New CID) which is foolproof.
You can even use the product with your finger and gently blend all over the lid. The formula is pretty unique, you can sheer it out, or add layers for a more intense effect.
As for the look, yes it is quite shimmery, but it looks pretty! It never is flat, but instead, gives dimension, and reflects the light beautifully.
