Let me introduce several beauty faves that I was really enjoying in March 2016. Some of them are high end pieces and some of them are from drugstore. So let’s jump into them …
Mineralize Skinfinish by MAC in shade Soft&Gentle
Cult beauty product that is hyped up by all beauty gurus in the world. I had my eye on it for a while and I have finally purchased it in Madrid airport right before Christmas 2015. Since that it became staple part of my everyday makeup routine.
It is nicely pigmented gold-champagne highlighter that suits most skin tones. I am using it on high points of my cheeks, the bridge of my nose and sometimes also to highlight inner corners of my eyes. If you are looking for stronger highlighter, I can definitely recommend this one.
Make It Brow in 01 Blondy Brows by Essence
It is quite difficult to find good eyebrow product in drugstore. This eyebrow gel mascara is supposed to be a dupe for Benefit Gimmi Brow. I cannot compare them because I do not have Benefit’s one but this one I find very good. It is lightly tinted and it helps keeping eyebrow in shape without making it crispy. It comes in two shades and for price tag under 3 EUR (about 70 CZK) it is definitely worth trying.
Bronzing Powder in shade 4 by YSL
This bronzing powder was part of limited edition by YSL several years ago. I have rediscovered it in my collection at the beginning of this year as I was looking for light bronzing powder for my fair “winter” skin. Although it looks a bit orange in the pan, it comes lightly on the skin and it gives nice warm tint.
Unfortunately as far as I know it is not available anymore. If you are looking for nice light bronzer I recommend to check out Sephora brand or Body Shop makeup range. Both offers pretty good range of shades.
Matte Eyeshadow Quad by Avon in shade Au Naturale
In March I became a fan of matte eyeshadow look. Avon came up with new quads, each of them contains four matte eyeshadows. I decided to give it a try and ordered the most neutral one in the shade Au Naturale.
It comes with three brown shades and one cream highlight shade. Eyeshadows are pretty pigmented and combined with black or brown eyeliner creates very nice neutral eyelook. However I have to admit that they are bit powdery and may create little fall outs.
Miracle Match Foundation by Max Factor in shade 45 Warm Almond
During last month shopping experience, I have found new (at least for me) foundation from Max Factor. It is called Miracle Match Foundation Blur&Nourish. I was not fully convinced to buy it as I already had one in similar bottle and I didn’t like it at all. However I decided to give it a try and now I am glad for it.
Makeup is creamy, easy to blend, it looks very natural on the skin and gives good medium coverage. I am also nicely surprised that I found shade 45 Warm Almond in Czech drugstore (usually the lightest available shade is no. 50 that is way to dark for me). It easily becomes my favourite drugstore makeup.
Bright Crystal Absolute EDT by Versace
And last but definitely not least is my perfume favourite and for this spring I choose Bright Crystal Absolute from Versace. I was not huge fan of original Bright Crystal perfume, I found it a bit too floral after few minutes on my skin. Although its younger brother is also described as floral scent, for me it is more fruity and heavier which I found perfect for this time of year.
