I usually only post about products I actually like and would recommend for you. But, this time I have to warn you about a product I was really excited about. It’s a Max Factor Colour Elixir Lip Liner. I got it while I was away because I had forgotten my favorite lip liner, a Rimmel one that is now discontinued. I was actually looking for a similar one color-wise and this was the closest one to it, that’s why I got it. I was hoping it would be a good alternative to my Rimmel lip liner.
Oh boy was I disappointed. First, the tip broke the first time I was applying it and then, I couldn’t sharpen it. In the end I was able to do so but the liner itself keeps breaking. I think the reason for that it that it feels very dry. Also, the color was much more an orange tone than pink. It looks like it might be a nude pink color that matches the skin but I couldn’t really match it to my skin at all, even if i rubbed it a little.
So, this i a product that really isn’t worth getting. Spend your money on something else.
I picked up this Bourjois compact powder about 10 days ago and I already feel like it’s gonna be a must have for me in the months to come. The description of it got me;
THE SILK EDITION POWDER BLURS IMPERFECTIONS & MATTIFIES THE SKIN FOR A FLAWLESS FINISH.
Sounds good, doesn’t it?
Well let me tell you that it actually does that for me. I do use it over my liquid foundation to se it and remove the moist feeling. I can truly recommend this for everyone looking for a compact that looks natural. If you want something that covers more this isn’t for you. I for example, who does get red patches every now and then couldn’t use it as the base on my face.
The packaging is super cool
Let me know if you’ve tried it and what you think…!
I also picked up this Bourjois nail polish while in Sarajevo! As many of you know I’m obsessed with burgundy for fall and this color, Cherry d’Amour, is perfect. One coat is ok but two coats gives it an extra burgundy pop. I’ve been wearing it for three days now, and it still hasn’t chipped.
While on a cruise to Finland with my sister and best friend I picked up a Dior eyeliner, the Diorshow Pro Liner in the color Pro Brown. I’m not very good at applying liner. I know some of you ladies might recognize yourself in that statement. So, as my friend and I were choosing a color we both went for the brown one as it looked a bit more natural. I use this line on both my upper lid and my lower lash line and it works good for me. It does smudge a little but I don’t mind because all it does is look more natural as there is no harsh line.
One of my favorite makeup brands IsaDora launched a new foundation a few weeks ago. I picked it up within days and I’ve used it a lot since. I’ve seen some promotion for it where they promote it as a touch up product and it’s exactly what it is. I do have to touch it up throughout the day but I don’t mind it, because it’s really easy to do.
I’ve been looking for the perfect burgundy lipstick for months but still haven’t found one I absolutely love. Please comment below and let me know which one is your favorite. Preferably matte, but any suggestions is welcome!
While in Sarajevo, I did a bit of shopping, of course. As many of you know my favorite mascara at the time is the L’Oreal Paris Miss Manga. Well, I found something even better, the Miss Manga Black Angel. It gives a lot more volume to my lashes than the original and also it’s jet black, exactly what I love.
I know I said I was coming back with a bang and I intended to but life got in the way. I was involved in a car accident a few weeks ago, thankfully I’m ok but it has made me think, about a lot of stuff. I’m not gonna go into it more than to say I’m reevaluating a lot of things.
But, the blog is only gonna get bigger and better, just wait for it and have some patience.
Here we go!
