Collistar Milano Fall-Winter Collection 2012

Currently I’m lusting after this:

Collistar Milano LE Light Creator
Collistar Milano LE Light Creator

Has anyone tried  it? Or something similar, perhaps?  (Such as Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks…) I realised I desperately needed a highlighter after witnessing  what contouring can do to an otherwise ordinary face at my MUA lessons…amazing!

So, any opinion on Collistar Light Creator or any other pressed powder highlighter is much appreciated…pretty please! 😉

p.s. I’ve been a bit lazy this month, I know… To make it up to you, I’ve got some gorgeous Chanel staples coming soon…

Clinique Stay-Matte Sheer Pressed Powder review

I’d been purchasing this for years until  I found  a (much better and cheaper) dupe.  Clinique claims that it ”removes excess oil and shine without disturbing makeup. Leaves a matte look to skin. Leaves skin feeling and looking comfortable and fresh.” For official info click HERE.

Well,  on the plus side:

  • it does leave a matte look to skin as claimed                   
  • barely visible if applied alone
  • for dry combination, oily and very oily skin
  • comes in 7 shades

But, on the minus side:

  • matte look doesn’t last long enough
  • it can (and most likely will) dry out your skin during winter
  • slightly visible if applied over make-up

WOULD I REPURCHASE? Not since I found a great dupe – on which some other time!
