Just a couple of items that I purchased in recent months but I haven't had the chance to share on the blog, yet.
I have used them few time, I really like them - I guess the clue is in the title! ;) - so I can write some reviews now.
Mac Sheertone Blush in Blushbaby
If I need to use one word, I would say this product is brown. I read many bloggers raving about it... but still all my blushes are pinks, really... with a few reds and corals... and just didn't see myself wearing a brown blush.
BUT It did look amazing on people!
Having said that, it's a pinkish beige and I'm so glad I got it as it's become my go-to blush when I don't know what to wear.
It's, definitely, scarier in the pan; it's very sheer on application - again, sheertone... names do mean something sometimes - and build up very nicely so you don't risk to reach the point of no return with some dirty stains on your cheeks.
I think this colour suits many skintones, also very pale ones. I like the matte finish and how understated it looks - it's the safe choice when you do a bold lips look and don't want to look like a clown!
Clarins Beauty Flash Balm
Another much raved about product and considered a 'miracle in a tube' by many.
First, let me talk about the smell because it's one of things that people comment on frequently: I like it!
The cream is quite highly scented but I don't think it's a strong smell; I find it comforting, actually... maybe a bit old fashion, tho.
My skin looks brighter and firmer - generally, improved and I'm so impressed that I also used it on my wedding.
Apparently, the trick is in the application: you are not supposed to rub it into the skin but to smooth it over the face and then apply make up immediately.
In fact, I've been using it as a primer really - I never wear it just as a day cream.
Personally, I like it a lot and I could happily use it everyday although I don't do it as Lisa Eldridge herself said she's not using it too often otherwise her skin would get used to it and wouldn't see the full benefits anymore... all I can do is follow religiously the advice! ;)
Do you have any of these two?
Yay or Nay?
