It’s time for the monthly favourites! And I think, next time I will be doing 2013 favourites, so I better start planning it soon. Also, I can’t wait for the holidays, as I have a lot of plans.
Chanel Le Volume de Chanel Mascara in 10 Noir (review)
I still think that it is one of the best mascaras in the World! It makes even my not-so-impressive lashes look fantastic, adds tonnes of volume and is ultra black. I have a mini size but I am so getting a regular one soon!
BECCA Luminous Skin Colour Ultra-Sheer Foundation
I better write a review about this wonderful product soon. As the name suggests, it gives a very sheer coverage and is undetectable on the skin. With a little bit of concealer where you need it – you can get a perfect complexion which looks very natural.
Clarins Instant Concealer (review)
As I’ve already said, it instantly brightens up the way you look, feels light and is pretty long-lasting.
Ellis Faas Hot Lips L406 Rose Violet (review)
My latest love in terms of lip products. I have been wearing it non-stop, as it applies smoothly, has aRead More
Clarins Extra-Comfort Foundation (£35 for 30 ml) comes in a glass jar which is very chic and luxurious to look at, but not very practical (especially when you are in a hurry) in so many ways. But that is the only thing that’s not my favourite in this foundation, everything else I adore.
“Anti-Ageing, Replenishes, Illuminates.” This is how the brand describes the product, and I would agree.
I have dry skin, and I love everything [yes, I do realize that I've already said that] about this foundation, it is so good! I don’t even know where to start…
The Illuminating claims? It delivers! I was sick at home for a week and this foundation instantly (yes, the name speaks for itself) transformed my skin from dull into a glowing and polished version (of course, with the help of the right skincare). Seriously, I wasRead More
I have a new rule when it comes to beauty products, one out – one in (ok, maybe more than one in)! Meaning that I am allowed to buy new beauty products only after I finish some from those that I already have. This is why I get a bit excited when I see a new empty bottle in my bathroom.
I actually have some new items on the way to me, as I type. Can’t wait to try my them all!
I know that it’s not the end of Autumn yet, and there are still three weeks, but I have big doubts that I will finish anything else by the end of the month.
And by the way, here are Summer Empties. I’ve decided to do such features every season.
I really love bath oils, so, since I’ve used up two of my favourites Lavera Organic Wild Rose Bath Oil and Cowshed Lazy Cow Soothing Bath & Body Oil to the very last drop – I’ve already ordered some new ones, which are on their way to me.
Since I have very dry skin, I have to use body moisturizers, sometimes more than once a day, so I go through them quite quickly and this month I have finished the following products:
The Body Shop Pink Grapefruit Body Butter. I think these butters don’t need any introduction and explanation, they are fantastic. This particular one was a present from the boyfriend which made even more special.
Aromatherapy Assosiates Enrich Body Serum. I never used a body serum before, and was excited to try such kind of product, as it makes sense to use serums/oils on the body before a cream just, as you would on the face. It works! Plus, asRead More
I am personally a “Touche Eclat girl” when it comes to under eye products, although it is a highlighter, not a concealer, I find that it works for me! But sometimes, that is not enough. If only I had more hours of sleep.
I have very dry skin, so can’t imagine putting heavy, full coverage concealers/correctors under the eyes, as those would make me look 10 years older.
That’s why I was curious to try Clarins’ Insant Concealer.
I have shade No2, which is described as 02 pinky-beige, and which is a perfect match for my skin tone.
I love the design of this concealer, you don’t have to put your fingers in it, or use the attached brush, like with most concealer-type products, so it’s a good one to have in a kit, too.
The formula isRead More
Another day, another Face Of The Day.
I am wearing Clarins Extra-Comfort Foundation and Instant Concealer which I will definitely review in the future. But so far I really like both. This is a great foundation for dry skin, it gives a dewy finish and feels comfortable and non-drying. As for concealer, it doesn’t feel heavy or cakey but, at the same time, gives a nice coverage.Read More
