Beauty Department

As promised, here is a post about the goodies I got from Sephora last week. I think it's the first time when I bought makeup products and I loved every single one of them. Rare thing! Let's see why these magic tools became my favorites :) 
The first item is Clarins Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch (makeup base/primer), $32.
It has a melting texture and it really does even out your skin making it the perfect canvas. I'm very careful with primers as they tend to break me out since my skin is not only sensitive but it's also acne prone (the worst combination ever). I can definitely say this base is the best I've tried so far.
Second one is Yves Saint Laurent TOUCHE ÉCLAT, $40. Truly a magic tool! I had my eye on this thing for couple of years and finally it's in my makeup bag :) I use it every day now to brighten up my skin and cover some imperfections (though it is NOT a concealer), it makes your face look radiant :) I got it in color 2 (Luminous Ivory).
Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder, $49. I love its silky texture. But what I love more is how it creates natural looking tan. I'm very pale, and this powder gives me such a beautiful sun-kissed look. Love it. 
Last but not least Clinique Color Surge Eye Shadow Quad, $25.50 
I've never used Clinique eye shadows, I got this one because I loved the color palette, it's called Teddy Bear :) I was very surprised with the quality of this product for a relatively low price. It goes on beautifully and lasts all day. And I think these hues compliment my eye color :)
Let me and other readers know if you have used any of these products, and if you liked them or not.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask!
Talk to you soon! xo

  4. Secret tip on touche eclat! I actually use it on my cheeks and chin too, since I have sensitive skin and it tends to get red.

  12. touch eclat is a great product, I've been using it since a few years now (the same colour 2 :) and I'm really satisfied.
    I love this post because you just don't say you like the products but give many details why you like them, that's a huge help darling! :)
    I will give the clarins base a try for sure, it sounds dreamy.. :)
