I have finally managed to get some decent photos of my finishing powders yesterday, I’ve tried taking them twice so far but the weather in London just didn’t want to cooperate in the past few weeks! These are my favourite face products, I use them all a lot and rotate depending on the effect I would like to achieve on a particular day. I hope you’ll enjoy the comparison photos and find them useful!
It’s about time I write a review about this beauty. This D&G illuminator was a love at first sight. Even though it was one of my typical impulse buys, months after the purchase I’m still very happy with it.
Kiehl’s Powerful Strength Line Reducing Concentrate
This fragrance-free 10.5% vitamin C serum is the star of this post. I absolutely love it. I’ve done a full review on it here and would gladly recommend it if you need a serum that will even out your skin, make it look fresh and plump.
Émotion Joues Contraste has been released in the US about a year ago. It was released quietly and, as far as I know, it wasn’t a part of any collection. It is still available to purchase from nordstrom.com.
Pink Cult is a blush that will be repromoted as part of the MAC Artificially Wild Blushes collection. This collection will soon hit the counters and it will consist of three blushes. Next to Skin is a brand new shade, while Pink Cult and Taupe are repromotes.
This beautiful nude from Chanel’s 2014 Fall Collection has been my recent nail polish obsession. I’ve been wearing it constantly since I bought it ten days ago. I’m totally in love with the shade and how soft and sophisticated it looks on the nails.
There aren’t many products on the beauty market created specifically for contouring. There’s plenty of bronzers and blushes that you can get away with for this purpose, but on my very pale skin those don’t work very well most of the time. They either look too warm or too yellow or don’t have a matte finish.
It’s time for the empties again!
When it comes to bronzers, Guerlain is THE brand to go for. Their Terracotta range has become a synonym for the sun kissed look – it offers a wide range of shades and finishes. As someone with fair, cool-to-neutral toned complexion I opted for the lightest shade of the Terracotta Light Sheer Bronzing Powders – Blondes 02.
I’ve been dreading the thought of this review for a while – it’s never fun to write a negative review. Unfortunately, I don’t have anything positive to say about these two products from Nars, so I’ll keep it short.
