Hello, October! It’s time for September favourites, and last month I’ve discovered some absolutely amazing products which I am excited to tell you about.
My favourite base combo in September (and not only in September): Clarins Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base in 01 Rose (review and swatches) and Clarins HydraQuench Tinted Moisturizer (review and swatches), decanted. I have written very detailed reviews about both products so you are welcome to take a look. But if I had to sum up – I’d say that both items work incredibly well to add that glow/sheen back in the skin. You look just fine when in reality you are ridiculously exhausted and can only dream about getting some sleep. I recommend for dry skin especially.
I really love my Inglot Sculpting HD Powder in 504 (review and swatches), as you can see from the photo above. It creates that perfect and natural shade. Works even on the pale complexions and doesn’t look muddy, the formula is soft and smooth, and blends easily.
If I had to choose only one favourite product this month – that’d have to beRead More
I am loving the official description of the new Libre Chanel Makeup collection:
“Sheer meets intense. Matte and glossy collide. The artificial clashes with the real in a bold new makeup collection inspired by the material urban world. Striking contrasts of colours, textures, intensities and light capture a contemporary edge and thrilling moment in time.”
This collection with all the pink and silver details will definitely stand out among all the gold and red glittery offerings which are usually released for Christmas. There is also a new foundation! So far you can only buy the products from Chanel’s website but later on from Nordstorm, Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Selfridges, Harrods.
Let’s take a look at the products:
Architectonic Eye Palette, $80
Inspired by urban architecture, the shades are mirror-like silver, concrete grey and gunmetal blue shadows in matte to shimmery textures.
Calligraphic de Chanel, $35 in 65 Hyperblack
Long-lasting, waterproof gel liner with a vinyl finish.
Crayon Sourcils ($29) in 30 Brun Naturel
Rouge Allure ($37) in 247 Ultraberry andRead More
I am always on the hunt for a new good shampoo which does work and does what is promised, and today I want to share about the best one I have used in a long time. And it is Revlon Professional Hydra Capture Shine Up Shampoo which I’ve bought after reading some very positive reviews about it.
I personally find that it lives up to the “Shine Up” name, as it does add that glossiness and sheen to the hair whichRead More
Matte liquid lipsticks are here to stay! More and more brands are releasing their versions with formulas becoming less drying and the shades becoming more sophisticated.
And here are two latest launches from such brands as Chanel and Burberry.
Speaking of Burberry, I think their new strategy is simply genius! As you know, it is a Fashion Weeks month, and besides the clothes (obviously) a lot of us are obsessing over the beauty looks at the Runway: hair, makeup and nails. We often get a sneak preview of the products which will be available for the purchase only in months. But not anymore when it comes to Burberry! All the products Wendy Rowe and her team used on the girls are already available, both new shades and new products.
Such as Burberry Liquid Lip Velvet in Fawn Rose available from Burberry’s website for $34
“Developed with a new, innovative formula, which combines rich pigment, smooth application and a whipped, creamy texture to create a bold, velvet finish that lasts for up to eight hours. Light-as-air LiquidRead More
I love me a good body oil, and I have to have at least one in my rotation! And here is the one I have been enjoying in August and September. Meet ArtDecoYlang Ylang and Patchouli Precious Dry Body Oil which is from the Senses Asian Spa range.
I am sorry for the state of the bottle, I forgot to take the photos when I’ve just bought the product but at least you can definitely tell that I love it.
So why do I love it? It has a subtle oriental scent to it, and I am not gonna lie, this is one of the most important things when it comes to body care for me. It has to smell nice. But at the same time, it is subtleRead More
