Makeup Forever HD

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:-)

March favorite products

This month I’ve been doing a lot of shopping. Maybe because it’s spring, one of my favorite seasons. Maybe because it’s sunny&warm outside, which gives me an excellent mood. Maybe because I’m in love, but I’ve been this love-sick for three years now.

Anyhow,  I’ve been feeling generous with reviews lately so you might go easy on me for being over enthusiastic. Also, you might notice that I’ve been stuck to a routine as of lately…

1. Too Faced Chocolate Soleil. This bronzer was a present and because at that time I did not know how to work with bronzers, it was forgotten in a drawer. But its chocolate scent somehow came to surface and I started wearing it daily. With no exception.  And with the right buffing brush, it will blend perfectly into your skin.

2. Avon Color Trend – shade Flirt. This is a product acquired last autumn, and although, I’m not quite a big fan of Avon products, it was a visionary action from my side as it is a very nice orange lipstick, very wearable, even for stiff office jobs. Not matte but not very shimmery either, slightly scented, the texture is not that creamy, so be aware if you have dry lips. As for longevity, it was all right for four hours, after that it needed a refresh.

3. Makeup Forever HD Powder. I know, right? But I can’t get enough of it.

4. Apidermin face cream. Just because I have to put it away for a while, until cold comes again. It was good for my face during the cold days but I have also used it on my hands and elbows and it works perfectly. I don’t know if it’s such a good product in general or for everybody, but for me, in times of wind and snow it is perfect.

What are your favorite products this month?

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

What’s on your face this weekend?

This weekend is nothing special but just a plain, warm and sunny spring weekend. No special reason to celebrate something but that doesn’t stop us from being sexy and specials.

Generally on Saturday mornings I go to yoga classes. I find yoga very relaxing and helps me put my mind at ease. So after the yoga class my makeup is very light: little foundation or a BB cream, a little eyepencil here and there, a stroke of mascara and ready, steady, here we go for some coffee or a brunch with my friends.

I have many eye pencils, all colours and shades as I have a fascination for this genious beauty tools that help you with a quick make up in no time at all. Lately, for the weekend light makeup I’ve been stuck on two pencils mostly: Max Factor Wild Shadow Pencil and Maybelline Master Smoky.

Max Factor Wild Shadow Pencil
it’s a 2 in 1 gel shadow and liner. I have it in shade 40, which is a very nice golden shade that is very suited for day wear and also, if you have oily skin like I do and use a primer, this product can last a decent 8 hours wear.

I fell in love with Master Smokey as soon as I lay my hands on it. I mean, this id a work of a genius: a double cap shadow pencil with smudge. My first choice was a colour called Smoky Chocolate, which is a very nice warm brown, but I have also seen other interesting shades in this gama. It builds up very nicely and doesn’t crease for a long time.

When night falls, you know it’s party time. So my makeup will change accordingly.

This night I’m going to use Toleriane Teint foundation. As I have mentioned before, currently I’m having some problems with my skin as my rosacea is having a breakout moment and this foundation is a fluid corrective one specially designed for people with sensitive skin. It has a medium to full coverage,  SPF 25 but it dries very quickly so you have to work with small quantities for a good blend in. My help on this matter is my beloved Real Techniques buffing brush, a work of wonder.

Makeup Forever HD Powder will be used on top of that, as I love this product so much ( but I will have a separate review for it).

For my eyes I have decided to use the Sleek Makep Acid pallete. With Sleek Makeup is always a love-hate relationship as their products are so hyped and look nice but for the price I’m paying here in Romania their quality does not wow me. For instance, this mineral eyeshadows are quite chalky and you need to work quite long on building them up for a longer wear. But the colours are realy nice, funky and fun to wear.

For the finishing touches, a little bit of perfume; one of my favorites is Givenchy Amarige -a very sexy and sweet fragnance.

So, what are you going to wear on your face this weekend?

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