Foundations - NARS Cosmetics - Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation

4.0

Jan/23/2018

This foundation has lots of positives, namely the excellent comprehensive range of shades, the pump which is hygienic and seems to dispense just the right amount of product, the finish which is not the typical flat and "lifeless" finish of long wear foundations.
It melts seamlessly in the skin and does not look masky.
Better to get matched at the counter - I am MAC NC15 and …

Lipstick - NARS Cosmetics - Lipstick - Jungle Red

I have tons of red lipsticks but this has a special place in my collection. It's extremely versatile: it is a very casual red, think jeans, leather jacket and minimal eye make up but it can be equally worn more formally, think evening/cocktail dress/ red carpet. I am NC15 and it pulls neutral with a slight warm twist on me.
The red lipstick I would take anywhere with me!

I have this in Claret, a pretty warm red shade that compliments my skin tone (MAC NC15) and my hair colour (brown)

The texture is a good balance of sheer and opaque. I love that It is not overly glossy and that it has a non sticky texture.

It leaves the lips soft and hydrated and it's perfect for a polished look without looking "too done". For being a …

Liquid - MAC Cosmetics - Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation

May/17/2015

i can attest that this is waterproof as I wore it through a hot and humid long weekend in Rome with good results. It comes in a plastic tube,which I can see myself cutting open when the foundation is finished, and scrape the remainders with a spatula, thus avoiding waste.
The product is very thick: I apply small quantities over a moisturised face and spread it with my fingers. It can be used …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - mineralize All out Gorgeous

5.0

My first MAC Mineralize lipstick.

This looks like the perfect cherry red on me - it's a neutral red with a touch of cool that instantly brightens my face. The formula is non drying and slightly glossy, but with good coverage and staying power. Price is steep but would buy again.

Cooler than NARS Gipsy and more balm like as opposed to sheer.

Eyeliner - Pixi - Endless Silky Eye Pen (all shades)

These were a huge fail on me because they migrate all over my contact lenses and make my vision cloudy, too bad because the shades are gorgeous.
I do not line the waterline, still the product transfers very easily and goes onto the contacts.
I have never had this issue with other pencil liners, so still in my drawers and relegated to "glasses only days".

Eyeliner - NARS Cosmetics - Eye Paint - Ubangi

Gorgeous dark navy blue shade with a slight shimmer, can be used as a cream eye shadow or as a base or as an eyeliner. I use the MAC 263 for a winged line look. More interesting than black, still very day appropriate and can be jazzed up by making a thicker line for an evening look or as a base for smokey eyes. The texture is just right, pliable but not too dry nor too smudgy. Will repurchase.

Misc Beauty Tools - Illamasqua - Sealing Gel

This comes in a twin pack of 2 small bottles. I use it with the Illamasqua cake liner and other brands, too (Kryolan, Face Stockholm) - one drop forms a paste that I then pick up with a brush and use it to line my lid.

A few tips given to me by a lovely lady at the Illamasqua flagship store:

1) Put a drop on the back of your hand, wet the brush, swirl it on the cake …

Lipstick - NARS Cosmetics - Dressed to Kill

New for Spring 2013, this is a deep rose with golden shimmer. The shade has a lovely "warm" quality that makes it a nice Spring shade as well as a more Autumnal one.
I do not find the shimmer to be gritty or frosty: it just adds a bit of a spark.
I would call this Flair's warm-toned sister!

Lipstick - Illamasqua - Climax

Jul/23/2012

I was expecting a dusty rose in the same family as the eponymous Besame lipstick, which on me is warmer and more berry toned and creamier, but this is very different.
Climax is a matte, brighter shade of rose, lovely on medium skintone and I would expect, on fairer and darker ones.I agree that it brightens the face immediately - I particularly like it a with a very small amount of gloss …
