Favorites #1 Lipsticks and Eyeshadows

by 8.8.14

This is one or my first 'Favorites' post. Let me know in the comments if you like them and which type of products you want me to do a 'Favorites' on.

For this first post I wanted to do eyeshadows and lipsticks. These are the products that I almost always carry in my make up bag when I am on the road. I went all out and even made (funny looking) swatches for you. Still learning that, though. ;)

The eyeshadows are mainly neutrals, golds and light pinks. These are the colors I wear day time. 'Starting at nine o' clock'

  • MAC 'Tete a Teint' (matte 2) One of my first MAC eyeshadows. Use it in my socket.
  • Catrice 'Artfully Lustrous' (LE) My absolute favorite multipurpose eye shadow. Also got a back up.
  • MAC Mineralize Eyeshadow 'Making it Easy' (LE) Perfect eyeshadow trio for me.
  • Catrice 'Papaya Don't Preach' I also use this as a blush, works great plus it is a nice little travel companion. It doesn't take up too much space.
  • Catrice 'Fancy a Coppa Tea?'
  • MAC 'Bamboo' (matte) Perfect blending shade
  • Artdeco Glam Couture Eyeshadow '50' I apply this with my fingers for a perfect result.
  • Nars duo 'Alhambra' The only Nars duo I own and can recommend for all neutral lovers.

  • Kryolan Lipstain 'Rock' This is the red I've been wearing on stage since April. So many of you asked about this particular red that I've been rocking.
  • Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream 'Unscented' The best lip reviver out there.
  • MAC Lip Pencil 'Brick' A classic for all red lovers.
  • NYX Color Lip Balm 'Sukriya' Super affordable with a nice fruity scent.
  • Manhattan Colour Splash Liquid Lip Tint 'Red Tulip' This will stay on for a week!
  • NYX Lip Liner '824 Orange' (as good as MAC lip liners) Love all NYX lip liners. Orange had to be one in my list of course.
  • YSL Sheer Candy '10' Soon ready for a back up, 'cause this one is about to have its last lip moments.
  • Laura Mercier Lip Balm 'Apricote' Also almost a Beauty Bin item. Love this. My favorite peachy nude lip balm.
  • MAC Pro Longwear Lip Pencil 'Throw Me a Line' (LE) Perfect bright pin up matte look.
  • Manhattan Colour Splash Liquid Lip Tint 'My Manderine' My lips but a bit more peachy.
  • Catrice Pure Shine Colour Lip Balm '020 Rusty in Peace' Wearing this almost all week.
  • MAC Cremesheen 'Shanghai Spice'
  • Laura Gellar Waterproof Lipliner 'Buff' It is water and rub proof. Can't get it off! Great for the stage. It won't smear on my mic.

    Hello Simone!
    Thanks for this useful post. I will look for some lipsticks you've showed.
    As a snow-white skinned girl I would like to know which are your favourite powders, foundations and make-up bases.
    Have a good time :)

  4. Favorite nails !!

    Hi dear Simone,

    Well, something I would love to see is your skin care favorites, your favorites primers and foundations ;)

    But it would be nice if you do a favorite post about your hair care products.

    God bless you and your family,

  7. All the MAC's shadows are wonderful, you can do a lot with less quantity. The Elizabeth Arden treatment is AMAZING, all the 8 hours products are a great option for girls with dry or scratchy skin.
    I have not tried the lipsticks that Simone mention in this post :( in Mexico we don't found this brands, only MAC.
    But for all the girls: try the Clinique Chubby Lipsticks, the colors are nice and you feel in your lips a creamy sensation.
    Thanks again for this post <(^w^)>
    Greetings and kisses!
    DANIELA the scratchy girl.

    Hey Simone, I LOVE posts like these!
    I'm so happy that you shared with us the lipstick you use on the stage, it's so pretty. However, we don't have Kryolan in Brazil, I'd love to try this baby out. :/
    Anyways, for the next "favorites" I'd like to see your most used foundations, concealers etc because I also have fair skin (and red hair yay) and I know it's a pain in the ass to find the perfect shade to match.
    Wish you all the best,
    Xo Vitoria.

  10. I love golden colors, looks perfect on summer.

  11. Yes, you should definitely post more Favorites, it's interesting. And swatches are qood, really, but eyeshadows are almost like combination of two Sleek palettes - Oh so special and vintage romance, have you tried them?

  12. Hi Simone! I would love more favorites posts! Especially on body skincare, haircare and perfumes!

  13. Good post ! It could be a nice idea if you speak about your favorite blushes (I'm really crazy about this products). Have a nice day ;)

  14. Oh man, I really wish I could afford some MAC eyeshadows right now!

    I've been really curious about the fake eyelashes you wear, do you have any favorite pairs for every day and/or live shows? :)

  15. Oh I love this post! I love all the neutral shades!

  16. Hi Simone!
    Thanks for your useful post. I noticed some nude lipsticks, especially I like Catrice '020 Rusty in Peace' swatch.
    Please, can you make a post with your favorite foundations? I have such type of skin like yours but still haven't found my ideal foundation cause it's to hard to find rose beige tone. Do you prefer beige or rose beige tone of foundation?
    Have a good time =)

  17. Nars Alhambra looks really nice! I like those Kind of colors for myself too. Nars Isolde would look really good on your blue eyes too!

  18. I'm really curious about trying Catrice and Manhattan, the products you showed here seem so lovely!
