Here are the most interesting lip launchers, in my opinion. All three are unique, and truly stand out. With a new beauty launch every day, it’s hard to bring out something amazing, but these lip releases are anything but boring. No wonder, two incredibly talented make-up artists Gucci Westman and Lisa Eldridge, and Victoria Beckham could not get it wrong.
Westman Atelier Lip Suede, $95. Out in December.
I really love the look of Gucci Westman’s makeup line. In fact, she is one of my favourite make-up artists to follow on social media. Her new release which she shared about this week on her Insta is just so chic and gorgeous. How can you possibly not want that beautiful red compact with four shades of lipstick? This is exactly what we love luxury beauty for.

Like it or not, but most Autumn 2018 makeup collections are already available, even thought you may not have had your summer holiday yet.
And here are the new launches that stood out to me, and I have chosen something for the lips, eyes and face.
First of all, there is a new make-up artist’s makeup line on the block. This time Gucci Westman finally revealed her long awaited collection. Apparently, the procuts not only work as makeup but also should improve the skin.
I love the chic and modern look of the packaging, and would love to try the liquid blushes myself. So far the line is available from Barney’s ,and I would not mind trying the Baby Cheeks Blush Stick, $50.

Sounds great, right?

I love writing Christmas gift guides but especially the luxury ones, because when else other than Christmas (and your Birthday, perhaps), you can get away with asking for something high-end? Or, maybe, getting a real treat for your loved ones or even for yourself?
So here are my top picks when it comes to luxury beauty products. And I’ve included only the things which I’ve tried myself and loved, or the things that I think deserve attention.
And, yes, I am aware that it is only October but I know a lot of people who like to plan in advance.
1. Liberty London Advert, £215 from the 16th of October.
This is the ultimate beauty gift, in my opinion. My husband very kindly got it for me last Christmas, and it was one of the best gifts ever. It is worth £600 so £215 is a bargain, if I dare say so.
Alternative: I have posted a lot of other Advent Beauty Calendars on my Facebook page.
2. Goutal Perfumes, £110/£132 for 100 ml from Liberty, Escentual, Harrods.
There is something so special about the Goutal Paris perfumes (the brand was called Annick Goutal previously). The scents are exquisite and sophisticated, the bottles are gorgeous and elegant. If money was not an option I would love to have a whole wardrobe of their beautiful fragrances. But, as for now, I am really enjoying Rose Pompon. Also worth mentioning that the brand recently released alcohol free scents.
3. Foreo Gadgets, £119 for a small one or £169 for a big version from Cult Beauty and Nordstrom.
Brilliant Swedish brand which offers a big variety of facial cleansing and massaging devices, toothbrushes and more. Not only the design is Scandi-chic, the gadgets last forever (here, here, here are mine) but they also are very effective.
4. Omorovicza Skincare Sets Replenish & Restore Collection shown, £95 from Cult Beauty
It’s not a secret that am a big fan of Omorovicza, and, obviously, had to include their sets in the guide. My skin loves it, and that justifies the price tag for me. The set I’ve chosen includes: Miracle Facial Oil (30ml) Rejuvenating Night Cream (15ml), and Omoressence (50ml) .
Alternatives: 111skin, Anne Semonin. Both brands with a hefty price tags which I’ve tried some products from, and loved.
5. Luxury Hair Care: Leonor Greyl, Long Hair Volume Set, €120 from
I love me a luxury hair care products, and Leonor Greyl is as good, as it gets. Everything I’ve tried from the brand was exceptional quality:
Here are a few new launches that caught my attention recently. They are from Hourglass, Chanel and theBalm, three brands I really love.
When I was placing an order on a new eye brow pencil (here), I was wishing for a slim version of the Hourglass eye brow pencil, and guess what? They just launched Arch Brow Micro-Sculpting Pencils ($28) in 9 shades. The tip is 1.4mm which makes it ultra precise.
There are also 4 new shades of the Scattered Light Glitter Eyeshadow, $29 (here): Rapture (cranberry), Vivid (olive), Burnish ( deep bronze) and Ray ( deep champagne). And I really love the look of Rapture.
Finally, the brand
I was away for a week and I have to say that I had minimum makeup products with me and one of them was this beautiful palette by Revlon.
It is super tiny, I can easily hold it in my hand, so it’s a great size to travel with. It contains two cream eye shadows, highlighter and a blush plus a gorgeous red lipstick which looks amazing on the lips.
My favourites are the red lipstick which gives a beautiful and pretty long lasting coverage and the white shade that it supposed to be a highlighter for the face. But it contains lots of gold glitter so I use it as an eye highlighter.
The eye shadows do crease but I still love the beautiful effect they give. In general this is one of the cutest makeup products that I own.
This is why I was
