This month I was away visiting my family in the hot and sunny climate so I came back with a nice golden tan. The main reason why I love it? Now I can experiment with makeup colours that usually don’t look that nice with my light skin tone.
Say hello to golden eye shadows, bronzers, orange-y blushers and lipsticks. Speaking of bronzers, there will be a feature about cream bronzers next week, so stay tuned. And most importantly, navy blue inRead More
I don’t watch that many YouTube beauty videos, but there is one that I really liked, and that was Lip Products Addict Tag. I thought I’d do my own version in form of a post. So here we go…
My favourite lip treatment, sadly, has been discontinued, so the one that you can buy now has to be NUXE’s Reve de Miel. I am not very original here, but this thing is da bomb! It does everything you’d want a lip balm to do, nourishes and moisturizes the lips; it’s a perfect overnight balm.
Best Eye Catching Red
I do love a good red and have a lot in my rotation, but I’ve noticed that I get the most compliments whenever I wear Daniel Sandler’s Red Carpet Red. The name speaks for itself, no? It’s a gorgeous and flattering red, I highly recommend.
You can buy it from Feel Unique for £13.25.
Best Luxury and Best Drugstore Lipstick
My most-used luxury lipstick has to be Dior Addict, so I’ll include thisRead More
Spring/Summer is the perfect time to experiment with makeup, the prefect time to add a pop of colour to your look! And what better shade to try then aqua blue or turquoise, the shade that represents the sky and water?
You can wear aqua as you would wear a regular black or brown eye liner, or inside the lower waterline for an interesting accent.

Long-lasting shimmering turquoise. You can get a precise line with this pencil or make it as thick, as you wish.

I already reviewed Daniel Sandler’s Long Lasting Waterproof Eyeliners. I have five shades out of six: Black Velvet, Brown Velvet, Purple Velvet, Grey Velvet and Green Velvet (Blue Velvet is the one missing).
But recently those liners got a lill’ makeover; now, instead of black packaging, you get a matching colourful one, which I personally like a lot. Plus Daniel added a new shade – Aqua Velvet, which he kindly sent for me to try.
And… it is my favourite one! After the brown one. But you know me and the brown eye pencils, I can’t live without those.
But back to the Aqua shade. If I had to write a feature about my top 5 Daniel Sandler Cosmetics today, this would be in it, for sure. Yes, I like itRead More
I have re-organized a lot of my makeup/skincare/body care/ hair care products this month. Yes, I am still trying to think of the best storage for my nail polishes.
It was a great thing to do since I a) re-discovered a lot of products b) gave away cosmetics that I don’t use any more to my aunt c) it’s just nice to have everything neat and tidy.
I actually like keeping some of my most-used products in the Jo Malone packaging, the classic cream and black boxes fit enough of products and look nice in my flat. Above you can see my personal most used primers-bases-concealers.
Showing you my top “base” products seemed like a nice idea, so here we go:
Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer in Ivory (review and face swatches)
I did not like it that much at first, but now I absolutely adore it. It gives a good coverage for a tinted moisturizer, and is a great product for the days when (you &) your skin is tired and lacks a glow, as itRead More
