Hello my loves!

I’ve been soooooo busy lately with work and I also got sick. So no when I am home being sick and working, I thought I could do another ‘top 3’ post. I love these posts coz it is always such a challenge to choose between a bunch of products, the ones that you really really like. Not only in terms of color, but also quality, consistency, pigmentation, staying powers, etc. But most importantly, these do not break me out.

This time it was actually pretty easy to choose. ┬áObviously, I haven’t tried all the blushes out there, but from what I tried (a pretty decent amount), these are the best.

First, the double blush. I’ve used it soooo much, even the name has wiped off ­čÖé It’s from Vivienne Sabo. You guys know, it’s one of my favourite brands. Also this blush in shade 12 I’ve included to the giveaway I hosted a couple of months ago. Both colors can be used separately, but I prefer blending them. The texture is very creamy and makes my skin so soft. ┬áThis blush has matte finish to it. I feel like this product is worth so much more than $5. It is even better than 95% of high-end blushes! You get 2x 3,5g of excellent product for around $5.

Second, MAC blush. I’ve been raving about a perfect peachy/coral shade for a couple of months now and MAC’s sheertone blush in ‘Peaches’ is amazing. This blush is slightly more dry than the first one, but it’s very good too. It has decent staying powers, matte finish and no smell. Like pretty much any other MAC product, I love it. You get 6g of product for around $20.

And finally the third blush is from Rimmel. I love these little blushes, the only bad side – I wish the color range was more vast, coz they only have 4-5 shades and that’s it. Speaking about the quality, it’s lovely, the color is a perfect pink, stays on well, very pigmented, buildable. The shade is ‘020 Pink Rose’. This blush has a beautiful subtle shimmer to it. You get 3g of product for around $5.

Hi guys!

Just wanted to show you guys these two lovely items by MAC, that actually were a gift from my friend Alina. I luuuuuuuve them!!!!

I am really excited whenever I get something from MAC, because where I live now we don’t have any MAC store ­čśŽ And yes, unfortunatelly such places do exist ­čśŽ So every time I travel or my friends go somewhere, my target is MAC))) Obviously, there is a lot of fuss going on around this makeup brand, but come on guys their quality is AMAZING!!! Honestly, I have never been disappointed with a MAC product.

Lovely, right?))) Okay, let’s start with the blush. I’ve been looking for a perfect coral/peachy color for a while now, and from the moment I saw this blush in color ‘Peaches’, I knew wanted it. Again, the quality is great, lovely texture, the blush is very buildable. But I think this shade looks better on deeper skintones, so I am looking forward to being tan again))

The lipsticks is very nice too. Love the packaging and that it’s very moisturising, also it tastes good, not too sweet. It looks much more beigy/brown than on the photo. The lippy is in color ‘Creme cup’, if you are wondering. I think it’s a perfect pink/nude color, that will suit anyone, no matter your skin tone or hair color.

Hello ladies,

Speaking about Spring 2013 makeup trends, you can definitely notice how fresh and nice the skin of models on the catwalk is. And it’s very achievable too! Just pick your favourite natural finish foundation ( I am really liking Maybelline’s 24h foundation at the moment), and don’t forget about blush! Corals and pinks are huuuuuuuugeee this season. You can find a beautiful coral/peach blush at MAC (‘Peaches’ is lovely) and obviously ‘Coralista’ by Benefit. As for pinks, lovely satin finish pink, I recommend MAC’s ‘Well Dressed’, or a more affordable version by Rimmel in 020 ‘Pink Rose’.

Another spring trend, both makeup and fashion-wise, is bright colors. In Makeup, you can choose between lovely bright lipsticks, or add a little bit of bold color to your eye makeup.

I love these eye makeup looks! They are bold but still very subtle. Also I like simple smokey eye on the lid with a bit of sparkly green/blue eyeshadow on the lower lash line.

For bright spring lipsticks definitely try out Rimmel’s Kate Spring Collection. The colors are vibrant and the product is amazing.

Also, if you are looking for a dupe for YSL lip stains, try these babies

Hohestly, Rimmel makeup is very good quality for a very affordable price.

And finally, lashes and brows. Make them fuller and bigger this spring. Try to pull off the famous ‘cara delevigne’ brows and thick flirty lashes.

Hope you guys enjoyed

xoxo
