High end makeup favorites/Luksus kosmētikas favorīti

22 Apr
Hello gorgeous! Some time ago I wrote about my budget friendly makeup favorites. Today I am going to share my “high end” makeup favorites which I think are worth to invest to.

Sveikas, daiļās! Nesen rakstīju par budžetam draudzīgiem kosmētikas favorītiem, bet šodien pastāstīšu par, tā sauktiem, “dārgā gala” favorītiem. Šeit ir apkopota kosmētika, kura, manuprāt, ir vērta savas cenas 🙂
  • YSL Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain in #12 Corail Fauve. Ideāls lūpu spīdums. Labi pigmentēts un nav lipīgs.
  • Dior Diorific lipstick (Grand Bal collection) in #040 Marilyn. Klasiska lūpukrāsa skaistā tonī. ļoti komfortabla uz lūpām.
  • YSL Rouge Volupte in #11 Rose Culte. Šo iegādājos pēc sajūsmas par YSL Rouge Volupte Shine. Un arī smu sajūsmā 🙂
  • YSL Rouge Volupte Shine in #4 Rougle in Danger. Par šo lūpukrāsu esmu sajūsmā 🙂 Labi pigmentēta, izcili mitrina un satriešo izskatās. Arī dramatiskais sarkanais tonis ir ideāls priekš manis.
  • Chanel Poudre Universelle Libre in #25 Peche Clair. Labs pūderis ikdienai. Nemanāms viegls klājums. Nav nedz trģiski matēts, nedz arī spīdīgs. Izskatās ļoti dabiski.
  • Benefit Confessions of a Concealaholic kit. Ļoti patīk Erase Paste (tumšiem lokiem zem acīm) un Boi-ing konsīleri.
  • Benefit Boi-ing concealer in #01. Ideāls konsīleris pumpām un apsārtumiem.
  • Too Faced Shadow Insurance. Super acu ēnu bāze. Ēnas turās visu dienu un nesakrājas krociņās.
  • Benefit Moon Beam highlighter. Izskatās vienkārši satriecoši. Piešķir ļoti veselīgu āda izskatu.
  • Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow in Skinny Jeans. Turās visu dienu. Viegli iztušējas. Skaists tonis.
  • MUFE Camouflage Cream Palette. Lieliski konsīleri, ideāla noturība, turklāt, vairāku toņu palete ļauj sajaukt krāsas, lai dabūtu savu ideālo toni 🙂
  • MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack. Labs laineris. Nav ne pārāk šķidrs, ne arī pārāk ciets. Labi klājas un labi turās.
  • BareMinerals Flawless Definition Volumizing mascara in Black. Mana visu laiku mīļākā tuša. Piešķir labu apjomu, nebirst un neizsmērējas. Arī nomazgājas pilnībā (man riebjas būt rīta pandai).
  • Chanel long lasting eyeliner in Beryl. Turās visu dienu. Skaists tonis.
  • Payot stick couvrant purifiant. Kaut kas pa visu starp konsīleri un pretpumpu līdzekli, bet ļoti iderabrīgs cīņā ar pumpām. Lielisks līdzeklis cīņā ar pumpām.
  • TheBodyShop eyeshadow in #04. Skaists tonis. Laba noturība. Ļoti viegli iztušējamas ēnas.
  • Urban Decay deluxe eyeshadow in Ruthless. Arī ļoti skaists tonis un laba noturība.Un arī viegli iztušējamas ēnas.
  • Dior 5 Couleurs – 5-Colour Eyeshadow in #970 Stylish Move. Skaisti toņi, laba noturība.
  • Chanel Blush Duo Tweed Effect in #30 Tweed Rose. Ļoti skaists vaigu sārtums no rudens 2012 kolekcijas. Atrodas ideālā bilancē starp matētu/spīdīgu. Piešķir ļoti veselīgu toni vaigu ar izgaismojuma efektu.

Maybelline smoky eyes look

17 Sep

Hello gorgeous! Today I am going to show you my version of smoky eyes look using Master Smoky shadow-pencil and leColossal  Volum Express mascara (smoky eyes).
I used quick and easy smoky eyes technique by Lisa Eldridge. Her video on this look you can find here. So I started by drawing thick and messy lines using Mastr Smoky shadow-pencil in shade Smoky Black:

Then I blended shadow-pencil using cream eyeshadow (I used Creaseless Cream Shadow by Benefit in shade Skinny Jeans) and 219 brush by MAC:

Then I added little of Color Tattoo cream eyeshadow in Pomegranate Punk by Maybelline:

Next I used leColossal Volum Express mascara in shade Smoky Black and to finish the look I decided to keep my lips as natural as possible and thus chose Color Sensational lipstick in shade 160 Cosmo Pink:

The final image looks a little bit weird 🙂 I really like mascara (especially very soft black color) and lipstick (it feels very moisturizing on my lips and looks so natural . Actually I think drugstore makeup products getting better and better with every new launch.

Benefit Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow – Sippin’ N Dippin’ review and swatches

23 Mar

Hello gorgeous! Sorry for not posting for a while – I had terribly busy week. Today I am going to show one of my favorites 🙂 This is Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow in Sippin’ N Dippin’ by Benefit. I just adore cream eyeshadows because you can apply them very quickly using just your fingers.

Also I love cosmetics by Benefit and one of the reasons is their gorgeous packaging 🙂 And all the Benefit products I own are great quality. So let`s come to the Sippin’ N Dippin’. The color is just AMAZING!

I tried to catch on camera how the color changes depending on the light
The color changes from salmony-peachy to peachy gold. This color looks very trendy and very springy 🙂
And swatches on my eyes closed:
and open:
Benefit Creaseless Creames blend very easy end evenly. You can use one coat  to have a nice transparent cloud of color or layer them to have intense result. They apply great both using a brush or just fingers.
Hope it was interesting 🙂

BTW I like how this color matches my new blog theme 😀

Rimmel colour mousse cream eye shadow review

24 Nov

Hello gorgeous! Yesterday I received my Rimmel colour mousse eyeshadow in Mocha (012) and Midnight Blue (011). They cost  £1.99 each and hold 5 ml of product.  They are amazing! The application is fantastic – they glide on very nicely. The staying power is very good. They really last 8 hours and do not crease.

Also I have from this series color called Sassy (008) and Creasless Cream in color Skinny Jeans from Benefit.

All my Rimmel colur mousses:
And Benefit:

Swatches: L-R: Benefit – skinny jeans, rimmel – sassy, rimmel – mocha, rimmel – midnight blue

And from other angle:

Sassy is taupey-silvery color which is good for day and night. Mocha is gorgeous coppery-brown. Very rich and very chic!
Midnight blue is deep navy blue. This one look gorgeous, but it has strange smell (like an old oil paint). Maybe I got old one or it was not stored properly, or maybe this is just the current blue pigment feature. 
I adore cream eyeshadow because they are finger-friendly. If I am in a hurry I prefer using creams because no long blending is needed, no brush is needed and no bright light is needed. You can use them also as a base for powder eyeshadow to make them last longer, to make the color more intense, or even to change the color undertone. 
For the moment I own 3 Rimmel creams and one from Benefit. Actually I more like Benefit`s consistency. But Benefit`s Creaseless Cream costs about 14 pounds (28$) and Rimmel £1.99 + 1.99 shipping (I bought them from fragrancedirect.co.uk).
