To finish our Lipstick Week I’ve decided to feature my current top 3 lipsticks and share the top 3 that are on my wish list.
I’ve made myself choose lipsticks in different colour families, so here are: plum, red and pink. I don’t like orange, nude or any other shades that much.
Since I have already reviewed each lipstick, I have just included the links. I also have to mention that Clarins was recently reformulated, and the new version is even better!

I really love the look of the Chanel’s makeup collection for Autumn 2016, and it made me smile that several readers told me how they’ve thought of me when they saw it. I do love me some red, that’s for sure.
Here are actually several videos about the collection where Lucia Pica talks us through her inspiration.
I think Kristen Stewart fits this collection perfectly.

Chanel Dans La Lumiere de L’ete Makeup Collection for Summer 2016 is all about sandy browns, coppers for the eyes and face, and pinks with oranges for the lips and nails. Let’s take a look.
Les Beiges Healthy Glow Multi-Colour, $65
Duo 01 and Duo 02 are lightweight powders with two shades that create that instant glow and perk up the complexion. There is also a Pinceau (Blush) Brush which retails for $55.
The LE Les 4 Ombres ($65) has that desert inspired pattern. You get three bronze and earthy toned shades and one khaki.
Here is actually a promo image of the collection to give you an idea of how you could use the products.

Sometimes it feels really weird that I love makeup. My Mum couldn’t care less about it, and I did not really read glossy magazines or watch beauty shows on TV growing up. (I did do it all but it was when I already knew that I love all things beauty).
My Mum did have quite a few lipsticks and a mascara but she was not obsessed with all those things and wore makeup only for special occasions. She did like perfume though, as long as I remember.
So I’ve decided to ask her what makeup products she truly loves. And since I’ve mentioned perfume – her most used one these days.
Before I start I have to mention that she does use foundation and mascara occasionally but she doesn’t really have a favourite and would just use whichever [I give her]. However, the products shown above she loves and uses on a regular basis.
As you can already guess, Mum’s favourite makeup product is a lipstick. She has a fair complexion with dark eyes and very dark hair so bright reds and berries look amazing on her.
