MAKE UP LIST: MAX FACTOR PRODUCTS REVIEW + GIVEAWAY


Looking for a perfect and fresh new make up, I have decided to try out what Max Factor have to offer with few of their products: foundation, eye shadows, mascara, creme blush and lipsticks. 
If you read my blog on regular basis, you will probably know that when it comes to make up, foundation, mascara and lipsticks are the three products that I can’t live without. In fact, I would say that they are the starting point of any look I create, regardless of weather I am going to work with simple day make up or full-on night out make-up.   

For as long as I can remember, I have always been obsessed with good high quality foundation. The best foundation can help you achieve a beautiful, natural and glowing skin. I have tried few Max Factor foundations and I was very satisfied, so I decided to give it a try with Max Factor Healthy Skin Harmony miracle foundation. It has long lasting performance, with great coverage and maintained to stay fresh on my face for at least 8 hours. It’s easily spreadable and with just few pumps you can cover the entire face for a flawless finish. 

Next up on my list is Max Factor Lash Crown mascara. I have to admit, no matter how many mascaras I have tried until now, I’ve always ended up buying Max Factor’s Calorie 2000, which became my ultimate life companion mascara. But the Lash Crown has very similar performances like the Calorie 2000. I don’t know if it’s the applicator (which has two different size plastic fibers) or if it’s just an amazing product, if you like the right amount of volume and length without looking like you are wearing too much mascara - this one is definitely the one to choose. The beautiful lifted lashes give the essential finishing touch to the eyes, and this is easily accomplished by using the product line of Max Factor, which offers a big range of high quality mascaras to achieve this. My personal opinion is that no make-up bag is complete without at least one Max Factor mascara.

Let’s talk about Max Factor Masterpiece Nude Palette. I have brown eyes and I really like natural look make up, so I got with the No. 1- Cappuccino nudes which has 8 different shades. From lighter cream to dark brown, there are four mate shades and four with shimmery, satin finish. The colors look very vibrant and soft as they can be and that’s why my opinion is that this palette is perfect for daytime make up and it is one of those palettes I can take traveling and be sorted, and keep things natural with the light shades or little bit heavier with the darker shades.  

Now we get to my personal favorite- Creme Puff Blush. Before I give my verdict to it, I have to tell you that this is the first time I am using Max Factor blush powder. And what can I say, except- it blew my mind away. I think it’s the most perfect blush powder that I have used till now. It has mineral pigment in it, and I think it can work on any skin type because it has nice smooth texture and a lovely lux and polish appeal. My shade is Nude Mauve, natural looking nude with gorgeous bronze shimmer finish.   

And last- let’s talk about some lipsticks. Max Factor Nude Matte is one shade perfect for any day time, or office make up. It has buttery texture, nice satin- matte finish and glides smoothly on the lips. My shade is perfect in combination with Max Factor delightful pink Gloss. This shade works best because they make my lips look fuller, more natural and moisture. 
I didn’t take photographs of myself this time, but I promise that I will make a new post wearing all my new Max Factor make up pieces. In the meantime, you can find all the items Eliskir Ekskluziv Parfimerii.

Here’s the thing about black: it makes everything seems effortless. Take this dress for example, in any other color it wouldn’t look this much feminine or sexy, but in black, its so wearable yet daring and it screams statement and oh-so-stylish. Thorough all this years of blogging, I have learned one thing about black clothes: they are perfect way to up the cool factor without stepping out of your comfort zone.

The simpler is the line of the clothes, the better. All you have to do is pair them with minimal gold jewelry for maximal points guaranteed. Just like I did with this beautiful Il Bernardo collection, which is a styling no-brainer, effortlessly fitting in with every trend you can think of.

MY SKINCARE ROUTINE + GIVEAWAY WITH DR. HAUSCHKA


When it comes to skin care, I used to do very wrong things like grabbing whatever I used to read in magazines or whatever I used to find in drugstores and I was slapping it onto my skin whenever I felt like it. But then, few years ago I looked at the mirror and I saw the first signs of damaged skin- dry, lifeless and flaky skin. After staring at the mirror, I thought who’s this girl, I’m not familiar with her, and started screaming like just I saw a ghost. That’s the point where this lady (who looked like my evil twin) and I agreed that we need to send immediate SOS for the sake of our skin. Hoping that someone will take it seriously and help us (read: internet skin wizards).  

After that, I spent hours and hours of research for skin treatments, read blog posts and I stoped using any kind of cosmetic products for a few months. But then, I was invided to a promotion of Dr.Hauschka latest foundation product, and they also presented their other products at this time. The concept of natural beauty products and high quality ingredients were one of the reasons that I had to try some of their products.

I have oily skin in my t-zone, so I started with Clarifying toner which tones, balances and calms the oiliness of the skin. It also minimizes the appearance of blemishes, blackheads and enlarged pores. After using it for few weeks it started to showing results to my skin. Remember, this product is not for cleaning your face, but it’s for toning your face. For essential day care I combined the Clarifying toner with Revitalizing Day Cream which activates and hydrates combined skin. This famous duo became my worthy companion two years in a row. I am honestly really satisfied with the results after using them for the past couple of years.

What I like the most about Dr.Hauschka is their concept of revolutionary products, in which every ingredient has an important job to do. Whether delivering essential moisture, improving efficiency or adding natural aroma fragrance, each ingredient is carefully selected for its particular effects and its interaction with the whole composition. Beside that, they are ecologically and social responsible company. Nowadays, 50 years since this company’s first made product, millions of people have relied on Dr.Hauschka skin care for the health and beauty of their skin. I am one of those people.

Let’s get back to the skin care with few tips that I have learned. I now it sounds like cliche, but if you want flawless skin you should stick to these beauty “rules”.

1. Protect your skin during the day using SPF, even when the index is not very high.

2. Drink enough water because your skin needs lot’s of hydration during the day. Those dark circles around the eyes can easily disappear if you drink enough water. Trust me I’ve tried.

3. Get enough sleep and get your beauty rest, because it’s the best way to rejuvenate your skin cells.

4. Always, and I mean always take your make up off. Leaving make up on, causes serious damages to your skin.

And here comes the best part. One lucky reader will have a chance to win Dr.Hauschka Clarifying toner.

The rules of the GIVEAWAY are simple:

1. Follow missurbanvibe & Dr.Hauschka Macedonia (must follow the both fun pages to count)
2. Leave a comment under the blog post on Facebook & tag a friend (share on the post would count double)

The winer of this GIVEAWAY will be announced on October 5th on my Facebook page. I wish everyone the best of luck!
