Recent Beauty Buys

Beauty haul Dolce & Gabbana Lancome Chanel Sisley

Sorry for the hiatus everyone, it was unplanned and unfortunately inevitable. I’m slowly getting back into my everyday routine and looking forward to sharing with you some of my recent buys – the ones that I absolutely love, and those that haven’t proved to be a good choice.

Lancome Teint Miracle is one of my favourite foundations that I keep recommending to girls with normal or dry skin. It has a perfect amount of glow that looks very flattering on skin, and a medium coverage formula that can be applied sheer, or build up depending on the amount of the product used and a brush used for application. It’s also great for mature skin as it doesn’t migrate and highlight wrinkles and dry patches. I’m using 010 Beige Porcelaine which is a perfect neutral, fair shade.

Sisley Phyto-Cernes Eclat eye concealer has been recommended to me by a friend. For the asking price of £58 I expected a lot. The fact that it comes with a brush and a generous amount of product (15ml) helps justify the price, but I still expect it to deliver 100% when it comes to formula and its performance. Luckily, it does. It’s the best concealer I’ve tried so far – it has great coverage without looking heavy or cakey. It’s very long lasting, not drying, and it doesn’t highlight the wrinkles around my eyes.

Chanel Joues Contraste in #72 Rose Initial has been a very pleasant surprise. Pink blushes with yellow undertones normally don’t suit me, but this one compliments my skin tone beautifully, giving a very natural looking shade of pink to my cheeks.

Dolce & Gabbana #6 Shimmer Illuminator is the latest addition to my makeup collection. It reminds me of the Hourglass Dim Light Ambient Powder – it’s not a highlighter, it’s a powder that gives a natural looking glow to the skin. It’s subtle and it doesn’t have visible shimmer or metallic effect making it a perfect everyday illuminator.

Dolce & Gabbana Blush Brush is the one I used to try the illuminator on the counter. It’s a perfect size for my cheeks, it has a great rounded shape and picks up and blend product beautifully. I definitely didn’t need another blush brush, but this one really impressed me and I had to take it home with me.

Another one of the great recent purchases has been Lipstick Queen Saint in Bare Nude, while Nars Sheer Glow Foundation and Radiant Creamy Concealer have been a complete disappointment. I’ve mentioned these purchases here, I will review them in the next few days.

    1. Uzela sam ga juce, danas slikala, tetirala i uporedjivala. Javicu za koji dan, za sad mi se jako dopada. Ocigledniji ‘illuminating’ finish nego Nars Nico, nude-bezh je boje, na licu me efekat podseca malo na Miel Glace. Malo je tamniji od moje koze pa u isto vreme blago konturise i daje ‘glow’. Nije ni blizu ocigledan kao hajlajteri. Uporedicu ga sa Nico i HG Mood Light pa kacim slike za koji dan. Pakovanje je <3 Bacila sam oko i na Armani bronzer #100 odlicna je nijansa.

      1. Jao to mi kazi! taman da vidim kakav je i Nico. steta sto nemas i dim light za poredjenje. nema veze jedva cekam da vidim opsirnije ali za sad kako si ga opisala zvuci super. a zamisli bas sam ga gledala online pre neki dan. kao da mi citas misli :)

      2. :D Nico se ne vidi uopste. Pri kraju mi je, napakujem ga ko blesava i opet se ne vidi. Mislim da je bolji za ten tamniji od naseg, gde bi malo prosvetleo. Na meni se stopi skroz. Swatcheve za Nico sam stavljala na ani, poredjenje sa lightscapade cini mi se.

        Ispipala sam Nars Paloma duo, dopada mi se. I treba mi, odlicna mi je kontur boja.

  1. I zaboravih da napisem bas mi je nedostajalo tvoje pisanje. Juce sam bas proverala jel ima nesto novo i sto ne pises…. znam da si bila zauzeta

      1. Ne verujem da imaju toliko nijansi shimmera, ovde kod mene ima samo dve svetlija i ova tvoja kao tamnija. I drago mi je sto si pomenula Armani bronzer i meni se dopao br 100 ali mi na specktri rekli kako ne valja kako je blatnjav muljav sta ti ja znam… bas me cudi. A nemam pojma da li cu se skoro nakaniti uopste do countera.

      2. Moguce da si u pravu, na sajtu su samo dve (zasto li su brojevi 3 i 6?). Zalepila sam se za ovaj moj momentalno pa nisam obratila paznju na druge. Mozda su bile duplirane nijanse. Provericu kad odem sledeci put.

        Smor za Armani, bila sam spremna da ga uzmem na slepo.

  2. Dugo nisi pisala, bas sam se obradovala novom postu. Drago mi je da ti se Sisley korektor dopada. D&G i meni deluje zanimljivo.

  3. Bas lepe kupovine :) Bas mi je zao za Nars korektor, meni je on vec neko vreme na wl, bas sam dosta citala dosta pohvala
    moj favorit je Ch rumenilo, meni takve nijanse bas lepo stoje :)

    1. Hvala! Za Nars u poslednje vreme citam dosta negativnih review-a, to valjda tako ide pre nego sto sam ga kupila sve pozitivni a tek nakon kupovine negativni :D Mislim da bi bio ok za kombinovanu i masnu kozu, na suvoj je suvise zahtevan. Mora direktno preko kreme ili da se mesa da bi izgledao OK. Nadam se da ce tebi odgovarati! x
