I wanted to try Bourjois 1 Seconde Nail Polishes for some time, as I’ve heard so many great things about the range. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a shade that I would really want. But… when I’m in doubt – I go for red. This is how I got 11 Style in Rouge.
The formula is really amazing, it is opaque with one coat, glides on smoothly and definitely dries quicker than most nail polishes. Plus I like the wide brush which allows you to save time on the application, too. Plus it’s easy to control (the brush) and you don’t get the nail polish all over the place.
As for the shade - 11 Style in Rouge is a gorgeous bright warm red. Perfect shade to brighten up dull weather & mood. Although I like cool toned or classic reds, this one isRead More
I love blush! This may be the most exciting makeup product for me, my
beauty life was forever changed when I discovered it and I never looked back.
It seems like I always have blushers on my wish list, so here are top four that I plan to get at some point in the near future. I could also add Illamasqua’s Velvet Blusher in Peaked and theBalm’s Long-Wearing Powder Staining Blush, too.
So, let’s take a look at my wish list, shall we?
I can’t believe that I still haven’t got a Bourjois blusher. I think I’d go for the shade No3 (other shades). That’s a great thing that high street brands are now releasing cream blushers, too. I hope these are as good, as my favourites from Max Factor.

My Mum doesn’t wear makeup. Only lipstick sometimes. But recently she decided to change her hair style, got some new clothes and asked me if I could select some makeup for her.
Wow! I definitely approve
She has light skin, dark hair and eyes, so here are the basics that I have chosen. She doesn’t need that many products simply because she won’t even use them – so, knowing her taste and requirements, here is what I’ve chosen:
I am not yet 100% sure about the foundation that will suit her the best. So far she liked this Bourjois one (shown on the photo). But if you have suggestions for a lady around 50 with dry skin, feel free to share. And thanks to everyone on Twitter for their recommendations!
Blush is a must have in a makeup bag of any girl, in my opinion, as it instantly changes the appearance. This Max Factor blush is one of my personal favourites and I know that it will look great on her, too. Will have to pick up another one soon, as I am giving away my personal one.

I am sorry, that there has been a lack of updates, I have been very sick and stayed in bed for a week. Since there was no work or blog for me for several days, I am kind of excited to be back.
It is summer and the weather is hot (in most places), so I personally don’t like wearing tonnes of makeup, not that I ever do that, and for me summer associates with a bright lipstick. And since I know, that I am not alone, I would like to share the newest releases.
There is a new release from Laura Mercier – Rouge Nouveau Weightless Lip Color.
These are a wax-free lipsticks which are promised to be long-lasting and nourishing.
There are 15 shades divided unto three groups:
- Matte: Muse (brick red), Myth(plum
No matter how many (cream) blushers I have, a new one never fails to excite me. That is unlike some other makeup products, sometimes enough is enough.
So here are the newest offerings from Boujois, Estee Lauder and Chanel.
Let’s take a look!
