Daniel Sandler Kabeauti Brush Review

This big brush from Daniel Sandler is my new secret weapon in achieving flawless finish with my base products.

You know how sometimes when you first apply foundation it can actually accentuate enlarged pores rather than disguise them, well this fabbie brush totally sorts out that problem!

 Now I can pretty much slap on whatever foundation, BB cream or tinted moisturiser I fancy, then buff it in with this brush to get the most blended beautiful finish.

The first pic is with foundation applied with my fingers:

And this photo I have quickly gone over the foundation in a circular buffing motion with the Daniel Sandler Kabeauti Brush.

It is a subtle difference in the photo, but much more noticeable in the flesh.

 

If you like to set your base with powder then this brush is fantastic for this too, as its combination of both natural and synthetic fibre pick up the right amount product to make sure you don’t over powderIt’s fab for bronzer for this reason too.

I love it!! It costs £26 and you can check it out here.

I’m told that Karl Lagerfeld and Mr. Uemura were friends for over 20 years, before  Mr. Uemura’s death in 2008, and both greatly valued each other’s work. Apparently Karl has been using shu uemura pressed eye shadows to sketch with for many years!

He said: “I love sketching in the morning. When I go to sleep, I always put my pens and papers next to my bed. I use shu uemura eye shadow [to] sketch, since shu uemura has fantastic colors. I design with shu uemura make-up because other manufacturers do not offer such beautiful colors.”

So it seems entirely natural to create this collection in homage to shu uemura. The collection’s colours and packaging have been designed entirely by Karl Lagerfeld and it launches in November 2012 worldwide. Exciting!!

BB Creme: Dior Hyrdalife

I was so excited to try the new BB creme from Dior. I love the idea of BB creams (Blemish Balm, skin-perfecting all-in-one makeup) and I am already a massive Dior makeup fan, so I was expecting to be impressed. It also contains SPF 30 which I believe is essential, so it ticks that box straight away.

And yes! I love it. It provides excellent coverage and really evens out my skin tone, whilst still allowing my skin to show. The above photo is just the Dior Hydralife BB Creme and no other base products. I didn’t feel the need for any additional concealers or highlighters.

The finish is gorgeously glowy and lasts very well, even in the heat. These factors, along with its broad spectrum sun protection, make it my perfect choice for a summer’s day.

 It also contains the Dior Hydralife moisturising and age-defying serum, as well as the new Botanical Mallow water, which stimulates cell renewal and enhances radiance.

Apart from the fact that it makes my skin look gorge, it really is a hard working product!

It comes in one shade which does look a little orange as I first apply it on my skin, but once I warm it up and work it in, it adapts well to my skin tone and adds subtle warmth.

I used the warm green shade from my Dior 5 Couleurs Garden Edition Eye Palette – Garden Pastels 441. I love it. I have used it smokily (is that a word?!) here but you can really zing it up!

And on my lips, one of my fave Dior Lip Glosses of all time, Lip Polish Smoothing Lacquer in 003. I love it so much that it’s nearly empty and I haven’t finished a lip product in a long time!
