Apparently, it’s a National Lipstick Day on the 29th July. Please check out the feature I’ve written for Mode about my 7 lipstick picks.

I rarely post beauty empties, as I don’t like gathering empty bottles and I do finish a lot of them, but it is different with makeup, I barely ever finish anything, so having three empties is a big deal. Plus I really love all of them, so it was worth mentioning…
Daniel Sandler Invisible Radiance Foundation and Concealer (review)
This is the second foundation I have ever finished in my life. The first one was Max Factor’s Second Skin which was the best affordable foundation on the market, in my opinion (it is sadly discontinued). Invisible Radiance Foundation and Concealer is a great choice if you want a medium, natural looking coverage and a beautiful glowing finish.

If you a regular reader, you know my obsession with shimmering body oils. I personally think that it’s a must have for summer.
Today I want to share about a really lovely one – Clarins After Sun Shimmer Oil.
Although, this is a nourishing oil, it feels light on the skin, absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave the greasy residue. It adds that beautiful glow thanks to the micro-pearls and evens out the skin-tone slightly.
Unfortunately, I did not have a chance to use it after the sun (hopefully, yet) but it works great for my pale greenish/blueish legs anyway. It also adds extra healthy glow after the fake tan.

I was away with my friends for the weekend, and it was exactly what I needed, we had such an amazing time, walked around, tried new food and just laughed a lot.
I thought I’d share what lip products I had with me. I could actually have less but since I wanted to make an effort for once and have a choice I took quite a few. And here they are together with everything else I had with me, so that you’d see the proportions.
Plus, I’ve decided to share about the lip products, as regular readers will recognize all the other products as I talk about them non-stop anyway. But if you have any questions about any of the products – please leave me a comment.
Also, since I usually talk about luxury lip products, I thought it’d be nice to include some budget-friendly options this time.
Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector. (review and swatches) – the best “nude”
I am totally in love with this line. I have already used up 01 Rose and now am half way through Rosewood. These are absolutely brilliant, just like the glossy version. I also have two more shades which are equally great!
Rouge Bunny Rouge Lip Potion Devilish Nectar – just for fun.
This is actually a lip gloss with Chilli which makes your lips fuller. It also contains golden shimmer so the lips do look pretty. I did not get a chance to use it this time but it was nice to have options. I willRead More
