Highlighters Collection

Since highlighters became a thing, I’ve been in the hunt for the perfect one for me. I have tried several, but with my skin tone (medium/dark olive) it is not easy to find one that will really stand out.

I am presenting you here the ones that I have tried and at the end I will tell you which ones are my favorites and why.


  1. Sculpting trio contour – Younique
  2. Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle – MAC
  3. Star Powder #946 – Make Up Forever
  4. Naked Flushed in Strip – Urban Decay
  5. Tawny Shimmer Brick and Lip Kit – Bobby Brown
  6. High Beam – Benefit
  7. Gold Bronzing Powder – Bourjois
  8. Highlighting Palette in Cleopatra’s Kiss – Sleek Make UP
  9. Strobe of Genius Illuminating Palette – NYX

Now, if I have to choose a top 3, it will be like this:

  • Soft and Gentle by MAC because it really stands out beautifully and works will almost all skin tones
  • Bobby Brown’s shimmer brick because it blends so well and looks very natural, still you can see the glow
  • And the NYX strobe palette, because of the great selection of colors

The other ones are good products, but there is nothing really special about them.

I hope you find this useful and please, let me know which ones are your favorite highlighters, I am willing to try some new ones!


Fall lips

Finally, I found my fall lipsticks, I have been looking for colors like these for months, but in France we do not have as many choices of matte lipsticks as in the US. Fortunately I went to MAC last week and I found them! Here they are: Stone and Antique Velvet.

Stone is a grayish taupe color and Antique Velvet is a very rich, deep dark brown.

Both are very creamy, comfortable to wear and they dry matte very quickly. The down side is that they are not as long lasting as the liquid lipsticks, but it is fine with me, I do not mind making some touch ups during the day.

Which are your favorite lip colors for this season?


Favorite Matte Lip Colors

Even before the matte finish became a thing I have always preferred a bright and bold matte lipstick, and now with all the different formulas I feel like a kid in a candy store each time I go to Sephora!

Today I wanted to share my favorite matte lip colors with you. Hope you like them and if you have any questions about the products mentioned or have any recommendations, please leave me a comment!
