Today’s post is a little bit different: I will be talking about make-up, yes! I don’t write often about make-up; the simple reason being is that I am quite picky and I have always been struggling with finding green make-up that really suits me. I know, I know. I generally find the textures too heavy or greasy and not matte enough. I may have to experiment a bit more…
The hunt for my “suitable ” green make-up is still on the go. And today, I am happy to present a few items that I have picked at LoveLula*. Love or hate? Find out below!
The RMS Beauty “Un”cover-up (£34.00)
The little concealer shot fame already a while ago amongst all the beauty bloggers and beauty users. I thought I really had to try it, although I remained at first skeptical about its texture but moreover its performance. The blend is mainly made of Coconut oil, Jojoba oil, beeswax and a blend of minerals that gives that light tinted coverage. I find the pot really cute but not really hygienic especially since you have to “work the concealer out” a bit to warm it up and get the right amount on your fingers. Having said that, it doesn’t feel too greasy or heavy and really covers well any red marks or small blemishes. I also use a tiny amount underneath the eyes to lighten and smooth out the areas. As an overall, will I call the magical touch? Not really. I like it but I am not wowed… not sure why.
The RMS Beauty Swift shadow garden Rose GR-19 (£19.00)
I owe this one a review for a long time. If you follow my blog, you have probably seen it being featured in my top 2017 beauty/make-up products! I am a big fan of pressed shadows as I don’t have too much time to play around with loose mineral eyeshadows. I have green eyes, so I tend to go for pink/purple tones to highlight the color.
The Garden Rose eyeshadow clearly delivers an awesome result and I am very impressed! But what really impresses me the most is that the shadow applies really easily, by gliding over the lid and stays nicely all day long without even cringing. Made with soft and natural ingredients, the formula is really gentle making it really suitable for sensitive eyes. I will for sure repurchase this one and will be also trying other shades too! The RMS eyeshadow has quite a high price tag but is completely worth the purchase.
The Dr. Haushka eyeshadow Solo Lilac 7 (£13.50)
I have been using this it a bit less regularly than the RMS eyeshadow but still occasionally reach it. Although the color may seem a bit summery, the Lilac shade looks beautiful no matter the seasons we are in. And more importantly, it combines very well green eyes too. As I said, the color is very pretty but appears slightly less “intense” on the eyes, which is totally fine. It has less shimmer than the RMS eyeshadow and provides a more matte finish on the eyelid. I often use the little brush that comes with it and find it quite practical. At the end of the day, the Dr. Hauskha eyeshadow is a pleasant surprise and considering the price, it is definitely a make-up item I would consider repurchasing.
