February Favourites when it is the end of March…It is better late than never, right?
I am still using/loving all the products which I have featured in my January favourites but there are a few other products which I have added to my routine.
Max Factor Glossfinity Nail Polish in 85 Cerise (review and swatch)
I am having a break from my gel manicures so I am re-discovering the joys of changing the nail colours every few days, and of course Cerise from Max Factor made an appearance. I am on my third bottle, and I am obsessed with this bright fiery red which looks opaque with only one coat.
Great formula which can be worn as an opaque true matte (ruby) red, or as a stain by gently tapping it in with the fingers. This may sound like such a cliche but I feel so glamourous and confident whenever I am wearing it, the lipstick for dates. The formula is also nice, I do not find it to be drying.
Let’s have a look at the new eye shadow palettes which are out for SS19. I did post about some of the lip products, so here are some of the new releases for the eyes.
12 shades: Day Eyes Prime (light white), Day Eyes Enhance (amber honey), Day Eyes Smoke (scarlet), Date Eyes Prime (gold), Date Eyes Enhance (antique), Date Eyes Smoke (gold bronze), Diva Eyes Prime (champagne), Diva Eyes Enhance (burnt gold), Diva Eyes Smoke (rich auburn), Disco Eyes Prime (green), Disco Eyes Enhance (blue), Disco Eyes Smoke (black).
I like the Bowie reference and the fact that you get some colourful shades in the mix.
12 eye shadows in: Taunt (matte cream), Sophia (matte rich cool brown), Whipped (matte warm brown), Undressed (matte taupe brown), Bali (matte deep natural taupe), Icon (shimmering rosy gold), Basic Instinct (shimmering icy rose), Coconut Grove (matte deep brown), Centerfold (shimmering grey beige), Calendar Girl (shimmering golden brown), Faster Pussycat (metallic copper), Unbuttoned (shimmering deep brown).
You can’t go wrong with the slick NARS packaging and the quality of their eye shadows.
UD new Naked palette looks gorgeous. No matter how many Naked palettes they bring out, they still manage to make them look hot! I have the original one, and the one with pink tones and, honestly, would not say no to this one. And it is the best present for
Do you prefer lovegasm or orgasm, that is the question. And, yes, we are talking makeup. Here are two new palettes which, I am sure, will be a huge hit this summer. The colours are gorgeous and sex sells, after all.
A compact with four products is everything you’d need to re-create that Tilbury’s trademark glow. Here are the promo images which show how the products suit all skin tones.
I enjoyed sharing about the things that I loved in Winter, and now it is July and I did not share about my Spring favourites yet.
I’ve actually been strict with myself and allowed only a few products [makeup, beauty, lifestyle] so these are truly creme de la creme, for me.
This is probably my favourite product of them all, and I promise to write about it in more details because, after all, why would you need an extra step in your skincare routine which is £65 on top of it all. But it truly transformed my skincare routine. Think of all those things beauty brands promise in their press releases. It is all that: healthy glow, hydrated skin which is soft and smooth. I think my skin loves the Hungarian thermal water and the urea. And did I mention the frosted luxurious bottle?
I’ve had a small bottle of this with one of my orders and did not expect to love it as much as I do. One of the best face oils I have ever used. Again, think of all those things we want our beauty products to do. Glowing complexion? Nourished and silky skin?
As I’ve already mentioned, the times when I would get all those limited edition eye shadow palettes and yet another *insert a name of the product* are long gone. Now I only get products when I finish something (I have empties save stories over at my Insta) or when I really want that item. So here is my current wish list. And I am also including the things which I have finished so that you see what is being replaced.
I use up red nail varnishes like it’s nobody’s business so my current classic red which is CND’s Red-Y To Roll (see it here) is almost gone. I really enjoyed using it but would love to try Essie’s Gel Couture one now. I’d love Lady in Red or Rock the Runway, would have to see them in person, I am very specific about my reds.
I am obsessed with a glow-giving makeup base, and
