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.
This is my ultimate
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:
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
Here are some beauty and makeup products I’ve picked up in February. This is an overview of the things that I buy, and a place where you can share about your newest purchases. And, of course, stay tuned for reviews of the products in the future.
Artdeco Long Lasting Liquid Eyeliner in Black 01
Ever since Rouge Bunny Rouge changed the nib of my favourite eye liner, I am on a hunt for a prefect replacement, as it was the one I used pretty much every day. This time I’ve got the ArtDeco one, and it looked almost identical on-line, but unfortunately it is not in real life. However, it is a good one and I hope I will enjoy using it.
Orly Nail Defence Strengthening Protein Treatment
After a very bad experience at a nail salon (this is what happens when you cheat on your manicurist who works far from both your home and work) – I really need to restore my nails, and this
Here is a quick overview of some more affordable beauty brands, such as ArtDeco, Kiko and Pupa, and their Christmas releases.
ArtDeco Artcic Beauty is all kinds of cool with Arctic Beauty Dust, Shimmer Cream, Sparkling Lash Drops and all those frosty nail polishes, lip and nail products. According to the brand this collection is all about the “glittering icebergs, iridescent polar lights, delicate ice crystals and sparkling snow fields”, and it is beautiful.
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, what
