Essence Stay All Day Eyeshadow Review


Hello everyone!

How are you? Do you enjoy the weather change like me? 
You can’t wait for the sun to pop out every day like me? 
I totally get it! It’s Spring after all!

Well, today I will be reviewing a product that has been a surprise to me.

Essence Stay All Day Long Lasting EyeShadow

The last couple of years I have raised an obsession to cream eyeshadows.
I find them to be one of the most genius things ever invented in makeup industry.
They are so easy to use. The chance of a mistake is so little that you can’t even see it!

They apply like a dream on your lid and with a little blending, sometimes without even a brush, you get a very good eye makeup without even having to worry about its longevity as most of them are creaseless, waterproof and long lasting. 

How amazing is that?

So, as you know, many brands have launched their version of cream eyeshadow.

I have two of the famous MAC Paint Pots, a couple of Maybelline 24hr color tattoo, but as a makeup junkie I always try to look behind the curtain as I don’t think it is a rule that expensive things are always the best.

So I came across with these cream eyeshadows by Essence, a German cosmetics brand, well known to all of you for its good quality and low prices.

So I picked up the All Day Long Lasting EyeShadow in For Fairies.

 
I wanted an everyday yet slightly popping eyeshadow that would not crease and stay at least throughout the working hours and I found it.

It is super creamy eyeshadow, it applies really smoothly on your lid and you don’t even need a brush.

It is a light pink with gold shimmer to it that you can build up if you want. 


It is perfect for a daytime look. You pop that on and some mascara and you are done!
Or you can match it with a deep plum shade on the corners of your eyes for a more evening look.

I never remember the prices of my cosmetics except they are super expensive but I believe this one costs around 3.50 €. Amazing, right?

So what do you think of cream eyeshadows? Which one is your favorite?
Have you tried Essence?

Mac & Sephora Eye Brighteners! Lighten Up Your Eyes!



Hello everyone! 

How have you been doing?

Is the season transition makes you feel a bit sleepless and tired? 
And the worse…does it shows in your eyes? 

Well if this is the case, boy I have good news for you! 

Eye Brighteners! 

If anyone of you has not heard of them before, let me give you a heads up.
Eye brighteners are light textured colored cremes that go very smoothly under the eyes. 

Their main goal is not to cover your dark circles but to brighten and light reflect the under eye area, creating a more fresh and clean appearance.

I don’t have any dark circles so this is perfect for me. But it is also useful for the ones that have, by using a light layer of corrector (peachy), concealer (beige) and brightener (light pink) which you will success by applying a small amount of each to have a natural highlighted under eye area.

The ones I have and use are:

 MAC Prep + Prime Highlighter Pen in Bright Forecast & the
 Sephora Smoothing & Brightening Concealer in 03 light.










As you can see from the photos the one is really yellowy and the other is rather light pink.
The yellow tone is more suitable for darker skins and the light pink one is perfect for fair skins.

I use to mix them together and I end up having the perfect highlighting shade for my skin.
It is almost like second skin. 




I bought both of them on sale so I am not sure what their price is but I can tell you approximately that the MAC is about 20-22 euro and the Sephora is about 10-12 euro.
 
Their quality is equally good even though there is a big price gap! 

So, what do you think? Do you use eye brighteners?
If so, which one? I am open to suggestions!

Stay healthy & beautiful!

Clinique Chubby Stick Intense Review


Hello everyone!

How are you? I hope you are enjoying the good days and the rise of the temperature!

Summer is on the way, which means sun, glow and color!

When I think of summer my mind goes to bronzed skin and bright lips! I am that kind of girl!

So today I will show you a better version of a product that I loved last summer.

Clinique Chubby Stick Intense*



I am sure you all know the famous Chubby Stick Lip Colors, see post here, and whoever of you tried them, I know liked them very much and in many cases became a staple of your everyday makeup.

They only thing I did not quite much like was the not long wearing fact. Because they are very moisturizing, the color did not stay for long on your lips.

So when I heard that a new version, more intense & colorful version, of Chubby Sticks came out I was thrilled and impatient to try!

I tried the shade 04 heftiest hibiscus which is a bright coral red color that goes very intense on the lips.




It is a great summer color that has a quite satisfying duration for its very conditioning formula.

I woud love to try the other shades too!

It comes in 8 bright shades and as usual they are allergy tested and fragrance free.


Release date on March 2013 and its price is € 21.90

If you have tried the first Chubby Stick I would suggest you give this one a go.


Stay healthy & beautiful
