Here is a quick overview of some more affordable beauty brands, such as ArtDeco, Kiko and Pupa, and their Christmas releases.

As we continue our Christmas gift guides, today I’d like to feature palettes that caught my attention: for lips, eyes and face.
Looking for a new neutral eye palette? ArtDeco brought out three Most Wanted eye shadows palettes. And I personally would really love to try them. There is something very nostalgic about ArtDeco eye shadows, I used to love them back in the days and I still think they are fantastic, especially for the price. Both shimmering and matte finishes are brilliant.
You can choose from:
- Brown: warm bronze shades, sensual copper nuances and soft beige in light and darker shades match every eye color and emphasize everbody’s individual style
- Nude: discreet mat and softly shimmering shades in brown, grey and rosé allow for a variety of combinations
- Smokey: smokey grey, intense black and strong rosé combined with pearly-shimmery highlight colors are suitable for day make-up as well as for a big night out.
Each contains 12 shades in different formulas. German quality and wallet friendly, whatRead More

As I have already mentioned on Twitter, it is easier to say what brand is not bringing out eye brow products for AW. You can browse the “Launches” section to see for yourself. And here are a few that I haven’t mentioned before…
As you can see from the photo above, now you don’t need a Pro eye brow brand to get a specific product, these days a lot of beauty brands have a huge selection: from stencils and powders to pencils and gels.
Smashbox Brow Gloss Stick
It gives eye brows a natural sheen, there is a spoolie on the other end.
Clinique Just Browsing Brush-On Styling Mousse, $16.50 from here.Read More
I was away with my friends for the weekend, and it was exactly what I needed, we had such an amazing time, walked around, tried new food and just laughed a lot.
I thought I’d share what lip products I had with me. I could actually have less but since I wanted to make an effort for once and have a choice I took quite a few. And here they are together with everything else I had with me, so that you’d see the proportions.
Plus, I’ve decided to share about the lip products, as regular readers will recognize all the other products as I talk about them non-stop anyway. But if you have any questions about any of the products – please leave me a comment.
Also, since I usually talk about luxury lip products, I thought it’d be nice to include some budget-friendly options this time.
Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector. (review and swatches) – the best “nude”
I am totally in love with this line. I have already used up 01 Rose and now am half way through Rosewood. These are absolutely brilliant, just like the glossy version. I also have two more shades which are equally great!
Rouge Bunny Rouge Lip Potion Devilish Nectar – just for fun.
This is actually a lip gloss with Chilli which makes your lips fuller. It also contains golden shimmer so the lips do look pretty. I did not get a chance to use it this time but it was nice to have options. I willRead More
