The Look: Maybelline Color Tattoo & Lancôme Shine Lover

Wow, I've had such a manic week! I went to bed at 9.30PM yesterday and slept until 7.30AM - that says about enough.. Along with the crazy week also came some crazy mornings, trying to get the most sleep I could I had to work with a shorter time frame to get ready for the day. I used to head out the door for work without anything on my eye lids on these moments; just a quick coat of mascara seemed like enough to tackle the day. The past years though I've realised how much of a difference some colour on my eyes makes. I instantly look much more awake - especially when I blend out the colour until right above the crease - so it's a step I never miss anymore. With the right products, it only adds about a minute to your routine. And it's a minute well spent! I've been totally crazy about Maybelline's Colour Tattoo cream eyeshadows as they are super pigmented, blend easily and are just about the easiest cream shadow formula I've tried. A true budget must-have!

Maybelline Color Tattoo Bad To The Bronze/On And On Bronze & Chocolate Suede
On my eyelids here I'm rocking the beautiful Bad To The Bronze (called On & On Bronze in Europe) and Chocolate Suede (one of the Leather colours). I bought both in the US at Ulta for just $6.99, which is a true bargain for cream eyeshadows that perform this well. They stay put the whole day, don't lose their vibrance and come of really easily when using just a micellar water. Chocolate Suede is a little too dark for daily looks in my liking, although combined with Bad To The Bronze it still just about works for a smokier office look.

Lancôme Shine Lover in Twisted BeigeOn my lips I'm wearing Lancôme Shine Lover in the shade 212 Twisted Beige, a lip shade that works perfectly with the Maybelline shades. The Shine Lover formula is super creamy - the perfect formula for when you don't have the time to scrub, moisturise and line your lips before getting to the actual lipstick application. Twisted Beige is a pink/beige shade that is quite opaque and as the product name say it - beautifully shiny! The perfect quick accomplice during the morning rush.
