I am actually surprised that I have so many favourites this month, as beauty wasn’t exactly my priority in January. But I truly loved all the products I am going to mention.
Surprisingly, it was all about the brown tones for me this month. I always wear red or berry, but felt like a wanted a change and be rebellious with the nudes. This probably doesn’t even make sense to some of you, I know.
Rouge Bunny Rouge Sheer Lipstick- Succulence Of Dew in Perfume Of His Gaze - it is described as “sheer tanned nude-beige”, and I totally agree. Never thought that I’d be wearing something like this. But never say never. Plus, it’s only makeup, it is supposed to be fun.
I am sure that you are already bored to death with me talking about this Trish McEvoy’s bronzer, but this is literally the only product I have been using on my cheeks lately (this and NYX Taupe). And Hourglass No. 2 Foundation/Blush brush is my favourite tool for bronzer/blush/healthy glow & colour on my cheeks.
Finally, there is a mascara that I have been using so much that all the words on it on it completely rubbed off - Max Factor Mastepiece Transform High Impact Volumising Mascara. It gives amazing volume, ultra-black colour and instant wow-effect.

My friend shared this quote recently, and I loved it so much, that I thought I’d share with you, too.
It is about red. Red, is truly the most beautiful and mesmerizing colour. My love for it is endless…
“The symbolism of red is made up of life, death, femininity, virility, violence, happiness, evil, saintliness, holiness, luxury, destitution, euphoria, and laughter. The murky red of brothels. The sumptuous red of theatres with their rich velvet curtains. The colour of the devil’s robes and the cardinal’s vestments. The red of idealists and madmen. The red of Fellini, Kurosawa, Picasso, and Caravaggio.
It is impossible not to fall in love with the new Cle de Peau Enchanted Beauty Makeup Collection for Spring 2015. It was inspired by fairy dust and moonbeam, and Amanda Seyfried is a perfect “face” for it. How feminine and beautiful does she look, almost ethereal…
There are new lipsticks, eye shadows and highlighters.
The products are:Read More
