Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara

Hello my beauties!

How is your summer so far? Are you hot? Are you on a beautiful island? Please make me jealous!

But before that, let me tell you about the wonderful surprise I had this morning.

Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara*

I have been reading about this mascara and watching about it n a few YouTube gurus and I immediately fell in love! And now, time has come to try it and show it to you.





As you can see it has the tiny tinniest wand, ideal to colour your bottom lashes without smudging.
Its formula gives a 24hr result and it is water resistant.
It contains acrylates copolymer which make it dry right after application while protects you from cold water, sweat and humidity.
It also contains bentonite, a special ingredient that works like clay covering your lashes, while its jojoba oil nurishes and protects them.
To remove the mascara from your lashes wet some cotton with warm water and just pass it through your lashes.

It is great for those wearing eye contacts, like myself, and have sensitive eyes.
It is available in Black and its price is 15 euros. In stores on September 2012.

I wasn't wearing mascara on my bottom lashes because I always got black circles, even though I wasn't born with them! But now I think I might start!

What do you think of this product?
Have you tried it? 

Stay healthy & beautiful

MAC Oil Control Lotion Review

Hello my beauties!

How are you? I am sure you are hot hot hot! And times like this you are trying to make the best out of your makeup. I know. I struggle myself with that too.

I am trying to find the best moisturiser or primer that leaves my skin matte hot days like these.
During my search I came across to this oil control lotion by our beloved MAC.



As you can see it is light textured and a bit "runny". The girl in the store said that will keep my skin matte and that I wouldn't need to wear moisturiser under it when doing my makeup as it has moisturising elements on its own.

My opinion on this lotion is not so good as someone would expect. 
Although it felt quite comfortable on my skin and absorbed quickly, I noticed not the slightest difference on my skin, my makeup or my T-zone. I was shiny 1 1/2 hour later tops.

And imagine I didn't wear it the last days that the weather is trying to kill us with heat and humidity.

This does not change my mind on the quality of MAC cosmetics, they are one of the best!
But I did thought that they would do good work on the sensitive subject of oil & shine control.

Have you tried it? 
What is our opinion?
Which one is your best anti-shine primer?

Razzle Dazzle!

Hello my beauties!

I am guessing you are happy, looking forward for your vacations while having a delicious coctail in the local bar.
I, myself, last week was in a bar in the centre of Athens, drinking strawberry mochito and let me tell you this. For three hours, I was feeling like I was in this exotic place, sipping my drink and listening to easy music.
But anyway, let me get back to my point. I was saying that summer is here, you have already tanned somehow, and your mood is in its highest point. 
And I ask you. 
Is there something that would make you feel even better?
Something that would make you look even happier and more glowing like you are showered by light?

Let me show you some magic tricks I have on my makeup bag!

Taaaa-Daaaaaa!

1. The Body Shop Sandstone #03 quartz hue

This small red treasure box was the first time I would come across to a highlighter. And still I used it as a eyeshadow! It looked really good on my eyes but when later I realised its true purpose I was thrilled! It has a beautiful rose champagne colour that matches any skin. I don't think you can still find the exact package but The Body Shop is full of highlighters!


2. Stila Illuminating Finishing Powder #Gold




This illuminating powder has a gorgeous soft gold colour that is shimmery not glittery. It gives a soft shimmery touch on the top of your cheekbones. This is for you who want something not too obvious.










3. Mac Cream Colour Base #Pearl





Anything I say on this black magic box it won't be enough! It is a creme highlighter that is best put with your fingers and it blends in your skin like heaven! I am sure a lot of you know exactly what I mean!










4. Gosh Bronzing Shimmer Brush # 102



I have shown this one before on the Bronzers post (see it here). 
It is an ultra shimmering bronzing powder tha makes you shine like you never imagined. It is very easy to go wrong with this product as the packaging is not too tidy and tends to let a lot of product get away and onto your face! But overall it is a great one!



5. Clinique Fresh Bloom Allover Colour #03 Almond Blossom





This is the most subtle highlighter I own. It has the smallest amount of shimmer of them all and can be used as a bronzer or a blush. There are two colours as you can see when mixed with the brush, gives a rose bronze shimmery glow. It is very good to carry it in your purse as it has many uses.  









Below I am showing you a face chart to see where is best to contour and highlight our face. I hope it will help those who are new to highlighters and want to try them out! The dark points are contouring your face to create angles and the rose ones are to create light to your face.

 I hope you find your way to a new glowing You!!!!!

Stay healthy & beautiful!
