Shiseido is a Japanese make up brand which exudes style,simplicity and pride.

This beautiful Modern Matte Powder lipstick arrived a while ago in the post and I forgot all about it until yesterday when I had a play with it.

The texture is so light yet creamy and moisturising, you’d forget you were wearing lipstick at all and that is what the Shiseido creators want you to feel!

You wear the lipstick colour instead of the colour wearing you.

The colour I’m wearing is 501 Night Life it’s RRP €31 for the Shiseido ModernMatte Powder Lipstick and you can get it in Arnotts or in Pharmacies nationwide.

My Inglot essentials 

I love lots of products from Inglot but here are the items I couldn’t live without. 

No.77 eyeliner gel is a kit staple as it’s the blackest black eyeliner. It does annoy me that it dries out so quickly in the pot but that brings me nicely to my second staple product. 

Duraline makes the liner flow and more pliable. Just add a drop to your mixing palette and add to your liner and you’ve a perfect consistency to get gorgeous lines again. 

The brush pictured is the 30T it’s an angled brush I’ve yet to try but I’m planning on using this for the inner corners of the eye to get a nice clean finish to my lines, I’ll let you know how I get on. 

Do you like Inglot? Have any favourite products you couldn’t do make up without?

Estée Lauder Double Wear Light Review 

You’ve all heard of it and some of you probably use it but I’ve only just tried out the popular Double wear light. The traditional No.1 best selling Estée Lauder foundation Double Wear is nearly iconic at this stage but quite heavy so the lighter version is perfect for warmer weather and for people who like a lighter finish foundation. I got samples of the foundation and have been trying them out on myself and some clients. 

The first impression I had was that it is a medium coverage finish and if a client has blemishes or skin discolouration you still need concealer. 

Also if can be quite cakey on dry skin and also not so good for more mature skins as it emphasised lines and wrinkles. 

I did find it good with people who have normal/oily skin but would definitely set with powder and a setting spray. 

I estimate about a 4-6 hr lasting time, after this time a touch up would be required around nose,mouth or oily areas. 

No allergies were flared up whilst wearing the Estée Lauder Double Wear Light. 

Application was smooth and creamy and easy to blend. 

Colours I tried were 2,3 and 4. 

4 being suitable for my fake tan days! 

What Estée Lauder claims 

Double Wear Light Stay-in-Place Makeup: Sheer-to-medium coverage. Natural finish. SPF10 protection. Up to 15-hours wear. Long-wear makeup is now lightweight makeup. Fresh, natural, comfortable. Goes on sheer, leaves skin free to breathe all day. Controls oil, resists smudging and won’t “melt” off through heat and humidity. For a look that stays vibrant and fresh whether it’s a workday, a workout or a weekend. It’s makeup that keeps up. Oil-free. Photo-friendly. Fragrance-free. Non-acnegenic. Dermatologist-tested.

Overall my conclusion: 

I see where the hype generates from and it is a good addition to any make up kit especially for Estée Lauder fans who will not use anything else, it gives a medium coverage without looking too harsh for day time and it’s colour range is good. Not a strong perfumed product. And wears well especially when set with powder or finishing sprays. Blends better without primer being used and matches up well with fake tan users. 

Estée Lauder is available at selected stockists and in Mullingar Pharmacy

Lottie London Soap Star Solid Brush Cleaner Review 

Clean make up brushes are an absolute must with me and so I was delighted to receive this brush cleaner to try. 

So today I washed a few brushes I used on Saturday. I’m used to the Blank Canvas solid soap brush cleaner and even though this cleaner is smaller it packs a powerful punch. 

Almost instantly the foundation was lifting from my brushes and the process was quick. 

There isn’t a noticeable scent from the brush cleaner which is brilliant as I’m weary of perfumed products especially on eye brushes. 

The only downfall for me is that it’s only recommended for synthetic brushes. 

Lottie London is available in pharmacies and online here : Mullingar Pharmacy
