August empties

imageHello beauties!

Summer is coming to an end and I must say it has been a busy time. I’m still on my holiday and let me tell you I’m having so much fun.

This post is going to be super-quick as my August empties list is so short. Here it goes:

1. Make Up Forever High Definition Primer – you can find the review here. I didn’t find this primer as high quality as it was rumored all over Internet and I believe I can find better uses for my money than buying this primer again.

2. L’Oreal Le Teint Accord Parfait – you can read the full review here. I love L’Oreal foundations for their nice finish. Major let down on this one was the non-existent transfer resistance.

3. Ebelin – nail polish remover with biotin and argan oil. Not a bad drugstore nail polish remover but don’t get your hopes high.

This is all for this empties list but I promise that future posts will be more detailed.

Until the next time, wear red lipstick and glitter all the way:-)

Ebelin beauty blending

My dear friend gave this beauty blender to me as a small gift for spring beginning. As you can guess, me and my friend are two minds alike, very much obssesed about beauty and makeup, always exchanging opinions and novelties. So she knew me as for the real blending&contouring freak that I am and gave me this blender from Evelin.

I do not have any missconceptions about brands and price and I am always opened in trying something new. I have always found cheap drugstore products that have amazing results and high end brands that do not fully deliver. So I was not fully surprised that after the RealTechniques beauty blender madness a lot of dupes showed up on the market but until now I never really found a sound motivaton for trying this kind of product.

Pro’s:
– very natural shape
– intuitive usage
– easy to clean
– when countoring, it blends the products easy and gives a very soft air-brushed result

Con’s:
– using it with liquid foundation, it uses too much of the product

My skin condition, although it gets better, does not allow me to wear a light foundation so I did not test foundation application with a wet blender.

I could not say that this method for applying foundation and contouring bronzer is better than other, but it is fun nevertheless.

Overall, this beauty blender is a good product and the concept is fantastic but I wouldn’t say using it prevails versus using makeup brushes.

Until the next time, wear red lipstick and glitter all the way:-)
