Today I want to tell you about a special product that I have included in my November favourites, and have been loving for months already. It is BECCA’s Luminous Skin Colour Ultra-Sheer Foundation SPF 25+.
The name is very spot- on! You get a very light coverage, dewy foundation. Imagine if you would mix your serum or moisturizer with a bit of your regular foundation, now you get the idea.
I personally prefer a light coverage on my face, and more coverage where I need it, instead of full-on (often heavy, and sometimes even mask-like foundation) all over. And with this product you get exactly that – it is light-as-air.
Although it can cover only minor imperfections, it is actually fantastic! You get a polished, healthy looking and more even complexion! Just add some under-eye highlighter/concealer and dots of concealer where you need to hide any imperfections on your face, and you will get a very natural-looking result!
It looks just like your skin, butRead More
I don’t like pink in anything but makeup. And I LOVE pink in makeup, especially cool-toned pinks. I also love roses, so the fact that the Spring 2014 Givenchy collection is called Over Rose, and is all about pink makes me uber happy.
In fact, this is definitely among my favourite Spring collections.
I love how Nicolas Degennes, Make-Up and Colour Artistic Director Givenchy, is describing it:
“Removed from a certain naiveté with which it is often associated, pink is a subtle colour that delivers multiple messages. Gourmand, it is as enchanting as a river of strawberry cordial. Pink candyfloss from childhood. Romantic, it is draped in poetry and tenderness. Sensual and excessive, it blossoms in extreme femininity.”
Sounds really beautiful, and looks gorgeous [the collection], too.
Must Have Prismissime Euphoric Pink, £44.50
Nine pretty pink shades for lips and cheeks: Passionate, Loving ,Youthful, Romantic, Tender, Childlike, Aphrodisiac, Sentimental, Dreamer. This looks like the product of this Spring.

I have already mentioned Rituals Shanti Chakra Caring Body Oil Spray in my November favourites, and today want to share about it in more details.
I wanted to get myself a new body oil for AW season, and this one caught my attention. I have actually never tried anything from Rituals, which is a beauty brand from the Netherlands, so was excited to give it a go.
The oil itself is non-greasy or sticky. I apply it on a slightly dampened skin after the shower or bath, and it takes several seconds to soak in (I have very dry skin), and leaves my skin nourished, smooth and soft. I really wish they had more body oils with different scents, as I wouldRead More

And, as you can guess, most of them are all about the pink colour. Just like the YSL’s Flower Crush with Cara Delevigne on the promo image with glowing rosy cheeks and lilac eyes. With the pink background, on top of

It’s the time when people are buying (Christmas) presents for each other, and I want to suggest a budget-friendly option – Kneipp Herbal Bath Collection 6 x 20m ( £8.95).
I recently bought myself this kit, and was very happy, as it gave me the opportunity to try different options, and decide for myself which ones I now want in a full size.
Plus, in my opinion, it is better to have six different mini scents than one big one. And those mini bottles with different colours look pretty cool and cute!
