Makeup :: Khaki and pink [FOTD]

In today's makeup I used one of my favourite and safe colour matches - pink and khaki. I used a kind of dirty, slightly brownish pinks from my Bourjois trio and a khaki mineral eyeshadow by Lily Lolo. Another Bourjois product I used was Bourjois Volume Glamour Maxi Definition Mascara, which is a great mascara but a pain in the back to remove. It doesn't say it's waterproof or longlasting but you need a waterproof makeup remover (lots of it!) to take it off. But still it's a nice mascara that lasts all day with abosolutely no smudging. 

Hope you'll like the makeup :)

Products I used: 
Lily Lolo Mineral Foundation in Porcelain
Lily Lolo Mineral Highlighter in Stardust
Lily Lolo Mineral Blush in Candy Girl
Lily Lolo mineral eyeshadow in Khaki Sparkle
Bourjois Smoky Eyes Trio Eyeshadow, 05 Rose Vintage
Effet Smoky eyepencil in Ultra Black
Paint Pot MAC in Quite Natural (as an eyeshadow base)
Bourjois Volume Glamour Maxi Definition mascara
Celia lipstick in 602

Makeup :: L'oreal Rouge Caresse lipsticks - again

Some time ago I showed new L'oreal's Rouge Caresse lipstick in 403 Hypnotic Red. I like it so much that I decided to get two more - 102 Mauve Cherie and 203 Rock'n Mauve.

102 Mauve Cherie is a neutral pink, a safe shade that can be applied even without a mirror. 203 Rock'n Mauve is a bright purply pink.  

All three shades I own:

Have you tried these lipsticks?

Makeup :: theBalm Nude'tude eyeshadow palette

When I saw this palette on the Internet I knew I had to have it. I was sceptical about getting it in Poland as theBalm is not very popular and available only in few stores but finally I've got it in December and been using it since.

The packaging is cardboard, there's a big mirror inside and a brush, which is rubbish to be honest. There're twelve eyeshadows great for nude makeup but you can create even more dramatic look with it. All shades have names beginning with "s". With the exception of Silly all the shadows are soft and well pigmented. In the pan Silly seems to be a nice deep brown with gold particles but on the skin it shows hardly any pigment. It can be used wet as an eyeliner though. Five shadows are matte (Sultry, Sexy, Serious, Sleek and Silly - with particles), the rest is pearl. I don't know why the black matte (Serious) doesn't look that well in the picture but it's one of my favourite black matte eyeshadows  to line my eyes. I really like the staying power of these eyeshadows - with an eyeshadow base they last all day long.

What's interesting is that theBalm released two versions of the palette - Naughty and Nice (check out theBalm website). I have the Naughty one, that is the one with the girls inside :).
