February 2013 Beauty Favourites

It’s time for February favourites. Can’t believe that I am doing this on time!

In my January favourites  (still loving those products a lot) I’ve talked about makeup only, so I’ve promised to include some other beauty products this time, so I am keeping my promise.

Nails

LVX Sanguine Nail Lacquer

I am very impressed with this nail polish, it is amazing. I have written about it last week and actually forgot to mention that I was also very impressed with how quickly it dries,  even without a top coat.

Revlon Nail Polish in Revlon Red

I did not like Revlon nail polishes at first,  mostly because of the long and thin brushes. But practice makes perfect and now my application techniques improved a lot. Plus I really love this shade of red, wore it twice in February.

Makeup

YSL Eye Shadow Duo in 35 Caramel Tan/Burnt Brown

I thought that it was a LE, so I did not talk that much about this little gem, otherwise I would. I love it to pieces and use it a lot.  This is in my top 5 eye shadows that I own, for sure. Perfect reddish brown, matte and

Clarins Colours of Brazil Makeup Collection for Summer 2014

Clarins’ Makeup collection for Summer 2014 called Colours of Brazil is absolutely  gorgeous with all the gold and blue shades and beautiful  prints and  embellishments.

My personal favourite product has to be the Colours of Brazil Quartet & Eye Liner Palette (£32)

Truly stunning shades of eye shadows and that eye liner is to die for. Plus you get a special edition compact.

There is one more product for the eyes – TrulyWaterproof Mascara (£21) in black.

According to the brand, it is both lengthening and volumizing, the formula contains the combination of bitter orange tree wax and squalance from olive, which nourishes and conditions the lashes. It will be a part of the permanent line, unlike all the other products from the collection.

May 2016 Beauty Favourites

I have to say that I am still loving all of my favourites from April but here are some more products that I would like to add.  Four makeup items and three beauty.

I did not expect this first product to make it to my favourites, as I have been neglecting all my bronzers for some time now, and I have tonnes. But I really like this new Clarins bronzer from their summer collection. It is called Bronzing & Blush Compact (full review coming up soon), as it adds warmth and that subtle sun-kissed effect to the face; you can use each shade separately or mix them all together. The other day when I was wearing it one of my  best male friends told me that whatever I have on my cheeks – it looks amazing, and makes me look beautiful, and it was this bronzer. Yes, some of my poor male friends know things like that.

Speaking of glow, I have started piling on using my Mary Lou Manizer from theBalm again. It gives the most gorgeous sheen to the face, and makes me look decent even when I barely sleep due to all the deadlines. Get it! Seriously, if you love a good highlighter, you need this in your life.

I have been using Max Factor Voluptuous False Lash Effect Mascara all

Since so many of you enjoyed the post about my “Current top 5 affordable makeup products” I wrote back in Mach, I’ve decided to write the same feature, but about luxury products.

And, I am pretty sure, regular readers won’t be surprised at all.

Especially to see Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in 04 Petal Shimmer (review and swatches) and Lancome Le Crayon Khol in Brun Noir (review and swatches) on the list. Are you bored of these yet?  I just can’t help myself, I do love both products a lot and refuse to be without them.

Lanocome’s  perfect dark brown eye pencil is the one that I use on myself at least several times per week, and I have at least one shade of the Clarins’ lip glosses in my bag, or even in my coat pocket.

I also need to have nice-looking brows, that’s were Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Soft Brunette (review and swatches) helps a lot. It is super quick and easy to use, and  you get a fuller, but not

My Clarins Makeup Collection #ShowUsYourClarins

I love the brands that interact with their followers on Twitter. And Clarins is one of those brands. Every Wednesday they have a #ShowUsYourClarins thing going on. So I thought that I would take a part in it, too. But I’ve decided to do it in a form of a post. So here it is!

I think this can be a useful “guide” to Clarins makeup!
