I am happy to see that Illamasqua‘s new collection looks like one of their first releases with original shades of makeup and stunning promo images created by Alex Box.
The collection is called Earth, and I love the tribal vibes of the photos.
The products are:
Nomadic palette, £34
Four matte and metallic eye shadows: Loam (a deep earth green), Terra (an earth clay red), Solitude (a poetic grey) and Gravity (a glazy grey).
Glamore Lipstick (£20) in Kin, sophisticated burnished, satin finish

Can you believe that tomorrow is September already? Where did the time go? Yeah, I do realize that I say this almost every month. Actually, August was probably the best month for me this year so far so I am kind of sad that it’s over…
So, what beauty products I’ve been loving this month?
I have to start with shimmering body oils. I am sorry for going on, and on about them. But I am such a die hard fan that I am convinced that every girl needs one in her life. It is a
life game changer! A good oil moisturises the skin and you get that polished and glossy look the models rock in the magazines. I love Omorovicza and Clarins, but there are cheaper options out there, too.
One more products that I won’t shut up about is the Aromathepary Assosiates Deep Relax Bath and Shower Oil (review). In fact, some of my friends associate this scent with me at this point. This is the best product for relaxing. If you don’t believe in aromatherapy – wait until you try this one. I know that it is not the cheapest one but it will last for ages.
I also have to mention Nivea Extended Moisture, Body Lotion, Dry to Very Dry Skin, as it is a brilliant body moisturizer. Unfortunately, I don’t have a bottle any more so couldn’t include it in the photo. But I do promise to write a review soon.

For me personally it’s always a big deal when Jo Malone release their new autumnal scent. I am actually absolutely in love with Blackberry and Bay and I’ve bought my Mum Peony and Blush Suede which she loves.
I don’t yet have a bottle of Sea Salt and Sage from last year’s collection still but it’s only a matter of time..
This year it is about Mimosa & Cardamom, and is described as: “Mists of honeyed, golden mimosa float above the spiciness of freshly crushed cardamom. Creamy tonka and smooth sandalwood woven under powdery heliotrope and Damask rose picked at dawn. Warm, ethereal, mesmerising.”
The products are:Read More
I really loved the video of Lisa Eldridge creating the look on Caroline de Maigret who collaborated with Lancome to bring out a AW 2015 makeup collection which is all about the Parisian chic.
Speaking of Parisian chic, I’ve had a book How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are: Love, Style, and Bad Habits written by Carloine and her girlfriends for some time now, and I should definitely read it at some point soon.
I am sure that I am not the only one who wants to play with the collection after watching this video… So what are the products?

I haven’t been buying that many beauty products recently ( I feel like I am saying that all the time), but here is what I’ve got in the last several weeks.
I am a huge Kerastase fan, and always love trying new products from them so this time I’ve decided to buy a shampoo which should stimulate the growth of hair. I’ve heard some positive things about it, so can’t wait to see if it is true actually.
Batiste Original Dry Shampoo, mini size
I have a big can of Toni & Guy dry shampoo but wanted something small that I could take in a handbag with me. And you just can’t go wrong with Batiste.
