Clarins Gloss Prodige in 09 Water Lily (review and lip swatches)

Back in the days I was singing praises to  Gloss Prodige, and recently I’ve re-discovered my love for it. It has a nice scent, brilliant moisturising formula and the most beautiful nudish pink shade. This is probably my favourite lip gloss that I own.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Eye Shadow Palette Raw Garden in Antigo (review and swatches)

I have been using this palette almost every day, and  recently wrote a detailed review about it, you get four eye shadows with a unique sateen matt light texture which feels weightless on but still has a nice pigmentation. The

July 2016 Beauy Favourites

I have to say that I am loving exactly the same beauty and makeup products that I have been loving in June, I should only add a few extras.  If you can still get those Clarins eye shadows and bronzer – do it! I use both almost every single day, and don’t want anything else. In fact, two of my girlfriends bought them after they’ve tried mine and got obsessed, as well.

The love for coffee body scrub, Color Wow hair Shellac and the bronzing drops is still going strong, too.

But here are the products that I would like to add to the list of favourites.

L’Oreal Glam Shine in Dazzle 201 Sparkle Shower (review and lip swatches)

It seems like this was the only lip product I have been loving this month besides the lip balm. I’ve bought this gloss last July and almost used it up. It smells delicious, feels nice on the lips and looks ridiculously pretty with that multi-dimensional glitter effect. Can’t get enough of it. And it is cheap, too.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Long-lasting Brow Liner ALCHEMY in Antimony 088

Rouge Bunny Rouge finally launched their eye brow collection which consists of four products: two eye brow pencils and two eye brow gels. I will write a detailed review with swatches soon but today I want to tell you about the Antimony eye brow pencil which is slim  and allows incredible precision. The shade is not warm which is perfect and the formula is soft but not smudgy. It was worth the wait!

Skincare

Garnier SkinActive Oil-Infused Micellar Cleansing Water

I’ve used up several bottles of the original Garnier micellar water and finally bought this one in July, and I am loving it. It cleanses the skin really well, without leaving an oily residue.  I also find

February 2017 Beauty Favourites

Two months of 2017 are down, wow, how did it happen? But this means that it is time for monthly favourites.

To be honest, I loved/used pretty much the same products as in January, and there are very few additions.

Also, this month most of the the products I have been loving are very cheap affordable. Let’s take a look.

I have started using my lip liners more often – especially  the  ArtDeco Soft Lip Liner Waterproof in 80  (review and swatches) and Rimmel Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Lipner in East End Snob  (review and swatches).  I actually want to get the Rimmel one in  red now, too.   I don’t really overdraw my lips like there is no tomorrow, I mainly use them to create the shape I want, and make the lipstick look more defined. But if you want to create fuller lips – this video from Lisa Eldridge is pretty awesome.

The other cheap and cheerful product I loved is  the Makeup Revolution Natural Nudes Eyeshadow Redemption Palette Iconic 3  (you can get it from Amazon UK or Amazon) which, according to all the reviews is a dupe for Urban Decay’s Naked 3. I have so many Urban Decay palettes which I have been buying over the years, but for some reason I barely ever use them, however I have been reaching for this Revolution one all the time. There are several shades I really love, and the quality is very decent, in my opinion. This palette was a present from a friend.

It’s not a secret that my favourite affordable skincare brand is

SS17 Blushes: Gucci, byTerry, ArtDeco and Benefit

Here is a preview of some really cool new blushers which were launched for SS17, and I have  chosen quite a good selection: middle-priced cushion blushes, luxury Gucci blush with a ladybug, and two kinds of palettes.

I am personally very interested in ArtDeco Cushion Blusher, €19.95 from Douglas, and will definitely be checking out the bronzy shade in person. These are promised to have a silky smooth texture and a soft shimmering effect. Without parabens, perfume and talc. The shades are: 2 – paradise parrot, 4 – tropican tucan  (not shown) and 6 – bamboo bronze.

Benefit Cosmetics Cheek Parade, $58 from Sephora

The brand is famous for their  cheek palettes, and this time the combo is: 0.17 oz/ 5 g GALifornia (sunny golden pink blush), 0.28 oz/ 8 g Hoola matte bronzer (matte natural bronzer),  0.28 oz/ 8 g Hoola lite matte bronzer (matte natural light bronzer),  0.17 oz/ 5 g Rockateur (rose gold blush),  0.25 oz/ 7 g Dandelion (brightening baby pink blush) and Mini Powder Brush.

Shower Oil: A Winter Must Have?

I have very dry skin so I have to give it extra love in winter.  Here are some tips from my dermatologist on how to take care of winter skin which really helped me.

Although it was a while ago, I am still using the Weleda soaps, after the calendula,  I had a rose one and am using the  lavender one now.

But what about the shower oils? We all know the cult favourite  L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil (review) and I also wrote about the Yves Rocher Oriental Shower Oil  (review) which I love.

However, there are so many new options on the market these days.  Here are just  two of them, which I’ve picked up a while ago.
