Inspired by some of Instagram posts lately I decided to make a blog post about the makeup/beauty lux life I’m experiencing atm.
I guess I came to that point in life where I’m more aware of importance of a skin care.. so now I’m more responsible when it comes to make up. For a long time I thought there is no difference between skin products and I still do use some low end drugstore ones, but.. you really do feel the difference when it comes to high end ones..
I use foundation on a daily basis so it was logical that I will invest in a good one, mainly cuz I have it on my face all day long. Browsing thru Internet and beauty blogs I have found couple of good reviews so I played safe and got myself a Chanell and new Dior. Chanell one, from Aqua range, is a light coverage so it is suitable for day to day use. As I have combined skin type I usually get dry patches around my lips and around my cheeks but my chin and nose do get bit shiny after couple of hours. I find Chanell Aqua foundation suitable for me and it prolongs time when I have to go touch up my makeup.
Dior Forever foundation has a bit more coverage so you will probably have to give a bit more effort in the morning and put some eyshadow, blush and so on too. Nevertheless it foundation that gives you satin finish and it lasts long. Doesn’t move around the face and doesn’t need fixing. You can build it up and still wont feel heavy on face.
Couple of years ago I got my hands on Estee Lauder sample mascara and was really happy with it. As I like big, clumpy lashes this one works for me just fine. Iti s extra black and has big brush the gives you a bit of definition and a lot of volume. It is perfect for daytime but if you build it up you can get dramatic night time lashes as well.
When it comes to lipsticks I still haven’t found my perfect one but Dior Addict range is the one I’m in love atm. It is perfect all around lipstick that gives you a bit of color, a bit of shimmer and a lot of lasting. I’m seriously thinking about investing in another color from the same range.
Gucci Flora perfume I got as a present around 7 years ago i think.. and have been repurchasing it ever since. This is the last one I’ll ever get (and I got it from Prague) because Gucci decided to stop making this specific one and made a range of Flora perfumes.. none of them is good as this one in my opinion..
So, this are my favorite lux makeup and beauty products I’m currently loving.. hope you will try at least one of them..
