My blushes and highlighters

Hi lovelies,

I have already posted my Foundation and Bronzer kits, so here we go with my blushes and highlighter. All of these products will be powder based and cruelty free. I do not have a cream blush now, if I would I just take a lipstick, but my Skin is combination oily so I do not use so much of cream products, only at Winter time.

Tarte- Paaarty

This a beautiful palette nude from their Amazonian Clay 12- hour blush in a deluxe size, just ideal light matt color for everyday use.

NYX- Crimson

True red high-definition blush, so highly pigmented, I just bought it for a ’20s inspired make up, but rather use it as an eyeshadow, it said the expiry in 6M after opening, come on… might be declutter it. It should be matt, but there are some clanky big white shimmer in it… so trash.

Nars-Orgasm

I think I do not need to say why I love it, it is the perfect peachy blush with a hint of golden shimmer, I have bought it before Nars went to China, so I will use it up!orgasm

Natasha Denona- Blush & Glow

I love the minis and it is my newest purchase, the blush is called golden coral, similar to Nars Orgasm, but much less of golden shimmer in it. The highlighter is all over glow #01 light is a frosty highlighter with a tiniest gold- pink and white shimmer, such a universal one. This is my ideal travel palette.

The Balm- Mary Lou Manizer

My golden highlight, also a love in my heart and it is such a huge pan. It is quit a multi porpuse one…

Finally our internet is o, so it is time to post and share my thoughts on my favourites of 2018. Okay, not all of them I had from the beggining of the year and might be they are not new to you, but these are the most used and loved for me.

Skincare:

Lixirskin: Electrogel Cleanser and Universal Emulsion cream (1-2.)- these products are not overthought, very basics and works with a relatively good INCI…

Pixi: Glow Tonic – I have already written about it this is just changed my skin in a good way. (3.)

Nature Box: Shower Gel coconut oil (4.)- It is a vegan shower gel, with an incredible sent… I still do not know if they are CF- probably will repurchase it more and more time (after I used up my Dove-s, which I got for Christmas)

Haircare:

Ouai-Wave spray(5): finally a save spray which not try my hair…

The Body Shop: Wild Argan Oil(6)- it is the best oil I have ever used for my hair. + my hubby love it for his beard

Make up :

Physicians Formula: Butter Bronzer- I had it at the end of 2017, but Since that it is my total favourite(7).

Nars: Orgasm blush(8)- the blush which Inhave used the most, just bought write before they sadly Landed in China, so I have nearly hit the pan…it will be so hard to replace

Too Faced: Better than Sex (9): it was in my 2017 fav too, but it is the number one mascara for me, even wear it without any other make up to often.

Bobbi Brown: Long-Wear Brow Pencil (10) in Blonde, it is not CF I know, but it is perfect, so will be replace soon as it is not having so much in, formula and size is much better than the pomade…

My Sephora wishlist

Hi everyone!

People says that the best way to save your money from Sephora is to live in a country without Sephora. Well, it somehow it is true, but in the other hand I am always going to Sephora when I am abroad with my saved money (or asking some friends) and spend it. Like last time:

img_0865

To tell the truth, here in Hungary we do have a lot of other possibilities to buy skin care and makeup products at parfumeries like Marrionnaud, Mueller or Douglas, pharmarcy, drogerie or Brand stores like Mac, Bobbi Brown or Estee Lauder.

Skincare is not so interesting at Sephora for me as we have Glamglow, Clinique or Khiehl’s here, so I gonna focus on make up wishes.

My fav beauty product of 2017

At the end of the year, let me introduce my favourite new product. Litelly, they are new launch in Hungary or first time bought abroad.

Haircare:

Yves Rocher: Pureté

Eventhought my hair is not so oily, but it makes that so lightweight and calm Down my scalp. No parabens and silicone is a plus.

The Body Shop: Wild Argan Oil Miracle Solid Oil

Really love this compact packaging, this is enough for ages and even you can use it for body as well. It is just knocked L’Oreál elséve oil for me.

Facecare:

L’Oreál Paris:Pure Clay Glow Mask

Brightens and exfoliates well and Finally on the high street…

The Body Shop:Tea Tree Anti-Imperfection Night Mask

I do not use all the range of Tea Tree, only this as day time I rather moisturing my skin, but cleans my mixed Skin from the blemishes during the Night so well.

Skinfood: Egg White Pore Form

Just gentil remove the make up and clean the face with Korean beauty cult.

Makeup:

Laura Mercier: Foundation Primer (oily free)

Best and most outstanding primer I have even tried. Really lightweight and perfect under Estee Lauder Double wear. This was my first product from the Brand, but want to try some of the other as well.

Maybelline: Instant Age Rewind

I own the shade Light, I would not say this is my best concealer ever, but it is the best from drugstore and the packaging is ideal for travelling. Finally they lauched in October or September in Hungary.

The Balm: Mary-Lou Manizer

Also this year lauched here, this cult product. Beautiful light golden highlighter is just the Perfect luminizer.

Nars: Orgasm blush

Finally I got this beautiful and iconic simmery powder blush, normally I prefer matte but this is just … no words.

Estée Lauder: Pure Color Love- Rose Xcess(120)

So luxurious package with a really pretty autumn/Winter color. It is a Sheer Matte lipstick, so not dries down the lips. Orginally I was looking for 230 color, but then I changed my mind. Shape was a bit weird for the very first time, but easier to Apply.

Too Faced: Melted Matte- Lady Balls

Till we did not meet I hated liquid lipsticks, but this is much more better than all the other I have ever tried. Dries quickly and stay in place for a long time. Might need to buy some other colors as well. Lip primer is a need underneath.

Nyx: Lingerie- Embellishment

Deep nude (mauve purple) color, but I hate the rest of the colors of the range, might be this is something else in the ingredients…

Real Techniques: setting brush

Tiny powder brush, which is really cheap, eventhought it is synthetic it is works well with powder. So multifuncional bit dou fibre brush. What I use for: powder under the eyes, blending the edges or hightlighter.

Stay turned for my negative list 🙂
