Makeup :: L'Oréal Rouge Caresse lipstick in 403 Hypnotic Red

One of the things I recently bought and really love is a new L'Oréal Rouge Caresse lipstick in 403 Hypnotic Red. In fact I like it so much I'd love to get other shades.

I really like the packaging, it' sleek and looks almost high-end. It's advertised (at least in Poland) as a mix of a lipstick and a lipbalm but for me is more like a tinted lip balm, it gives sheer colour and is very moisturizing. It's easy to apply even without a mirror. It has some scent to it but it's not too intense.

403 Hypnotic Red looks quite bright in a tube, but gives a sheer raspberry colour on the lips.

Makeup :: My new love - Sephora Cream Lip Stain

Sephora Cream Lip Stain is one of my latest favourites. It's not so much a stain, rather a longlasting liquid lipstick. It' a bit shiny right after application but sets totally matte. It is highly opaque, it doesn't dry my lips like other longlasting matte lipstics do.

I have shade 01 Always Red. It's a bright red that looks great with my pale skin. Staying power of Cream Lip Stain is truly amazing. It doesn't fade or transfer and you definitely need a makeup remover to take it off.

It's not a product you can slap on in a taxi, you really need a steady hand to apply it perfectly. Otherwise you may end up looking like a clown. If you have problems with contouring the lips with it try to use a small lip brush.

Have you tried Sephora Cream Lip Stain? What's your favourite lip product at the moment?

Makeup :: Inglot, Body Pigment Powder Matte 126 + spring FOTD

Today's the first day of spring so I decided to use a neon Body Pigment Powder by Inglot in 126 that I recently bought. 

This stuff is incredibly pigmented and saturated so you need to be very careful not to stain your clothes. Inglot Body Pigment Powder is truly longlasting and doesn't fade. I applied it to my lid and to my cheeks as a blusher.

I really love those pigments! Another one I have is gold (no. 19) which I used in my New Year's Eve tutorial. I want all of them!!!

Nails :: Lemonade by Orly

This nail polish screams summer. I know there's spring coming but this colour really reminds me of a sunny day on a beach. 

It's my first Orly nail polish and I have to admit I really like the brush and that Gripper Cap. I struggled a bit to apply it evenly. I don't know what's wrong with all those yellow and pastel in general nail polishes. No matter what brand or price range it's always difficult to put them on, at least for me.

Two coats, no top coat.

Nails :: Sally Hansen Dive Deeper

There aren't any traces of snow left, it's not even that cold, the birds are singing but still it doesn't feel like spring. But I have spring on my nails thanks to Sally Hansen in Dive Deeper.

I'm not sure if I'd chosen this shade if had a chance to see it in person. I bought in via the Internet and was quite surprised when I took it out from the envelope. I was afraid it would make my skin look corpse-like but luckily it's a very flattering shade. It's light blue with a hint of mint. There's a lot of multicolored shimmer in it - white, blue and pink. 

It is quite sheer, in the picture I have three coats, but in fact even two coats look nice despite the transparency. It's a very gentle and romantic shade. It dries quickly, I didn't have any problems with apllying three coats.

Makeup :: Catrice, Intensif'Eye Shadow Wet & Dry 010 - rubbish!

I'm so disappointed with the new Catrice products. I didn't like nail polishes (here and here), eyeshadow quad is not that bad but pigmentation is not impressive. But Intensif'Eye Shadow Wet & Dry in shade 010 Black or White Swan? is a total disaster.

I like wet&dry eyeshadows in general because I like use them wet as eyeliners. There was a tester at the drugstore so I checked out new Catrice Intensif'Eye Shadow Wet & Dry, of course dry. I wasn't impressed (pigmentation is extremaly poor) but I decided to give it a try as I was planning to use it only wet. I imagined that beautiful black line with brown and gold shimmer... However, I was susprised to find that it's rubbish even used wet. It falls out, flakes off, the simmer goes everywhere. Pigmentation is poor, coverage uneven. Moreover it's not black at all, rather grey with gold shimmer and looks dirty and unattractive. It fades and gets even more grey when it dries.

dry & wet

Today I decided to give it one last try. Overall, I used this shadow only a few times (less than ten), so imagine my surprise when I hit the pan... Underneath the eyeshadow there's a thick disc, which imitates the eyeshadow...

There's 0.8 g of eyeshadow but this doesn't shock me. However I can not believe how quickly Catrice shadow uses up. It's rediculous.
