Birthday Outfit and Makeup

It was my Birthday this weekend so I’ve decided to share with you what I wore and what makeup I’ve used. I don’t see Birthdays as a big deal (after a certain age, ha!) but it is always cool to dress up and spend time with friends and family.

Of course, I went for red with a touch of black, outfit wise. And here is the makeup I’ve used:

Face

Vichy BB Cream, I need to buy a full size of it soon, it is an amazing light  base which gives some luminosity.  Rouge Bunny Rouge  Naked Disguise Glide Concealer which is brilliant for the under eye area. Inglot HD Sculpting Powder in 504 is my favourite for that natural looking shadow and theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer for some glow.

Lips and Nails

Surprisingly I’ve used a very affordable trio: NYX  Soft Matte Lip Cream in Transylvania which I am obsessed with

A Week in Lipsticks

Recently I was talking a lot about lipsticks with some girls I work with, and this inspired me to wear a different shade each day for a month. I wear the same ones over, and over again but considering how many I have it was about time to change my habit.  So here are the ones I wore last week…

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Transylvania (lip swatch)

I am obsessed with it, as you may know, I have to stop myself from wearing it every single day. It is the most perfect vampy (Hey, Drac! yes, I absolutely had to do it) shade.  Whenever I wear it – I am always asked about it. The formula is not too drying and can be applied evenly.  This is the most affordable product from the selection and there are tonnes of other colours in the line.

Illamasqua Intense Lipgloss in Boost (review and lip  swatch)

Technically this is not a lipstick but, as the name suggests, it is pretty intense when layered so I’ve included it, too. It smells of sweets, feels moisturising on and is the most unique shade out of these all, a violet with a blue base, so beautiful.

It’s time for March beauty favourites, so here are the products that really stood out for me.

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.

Makeup

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
