AW18 Best Makeup Launches: Givenchy, Hourglass, Dior and Urban Decay

There are lots of new makeup launches for Autumn, and I have selected the hottest, in my opinion, for you to choose from. I’ve also made sure to pick something for face, lips and eyes.

Givenchy Le Rouge Liquide, £28 from Harrods, $37 from Sephora.

 Givenchy lipsticks are the hottest ones out there, if you ask me. And while I definitely do not need any new ones, I’d get this one in a heart beat. Leather case and a liquid lipstick which look easy to apply. Oh, yes!  The formula is promised to be soft and creamy, and the finish – matte. The shade featured is 410 Rouge Suedin.

DIOR Rouge Dior Ink Lip Liner, £24 from Harrods, Nordstrom.

It is basically a lipstick which comes in a form of a felt pen which allows a very precise application.  Dior claim “long-wearing formula delivers intense colour with a sumptuous matte finish for up to 12 hours”. The colour shown is

Beauty Inspiration: Dior Cruise 2012 Collection

I was away for a week and was extremely busy so I didn’t really have time to serf the Web for any beauty related things. But here is what caught my attention when I came back.

It is simply stunning! Everything about it! Jac is gorgeous, so are the makeup and clothes.

You can also see the nail polishes from the Spring 2012 makeup collection which is gorgeous by the way! The lilac one on this photo.

And the pastel lime green on the next one.

I really love the style of this photo session, makes me want to dress all girly and feminine and

Beauty and Makeup Products I Took With Me On A Holiday

I love seeing  what people take with them on a holiday so here is a post about what I had with me.

But first of all, here is a ‘holiday postcard’ 🙂 I am wearing Illamasqua’s Nomad. Not sure about my friend as she forgot the name of the polish.

I did not want to take tones of products with me as I often do so I have chosen the them very carefully.

Sun Protection:

  • La Roche Posay  Anthelios XL which I used a face sun screen
  • La Roche Posay Posthelios Hydrating After-Sun Melt-In Gel. This is a genius product and I will definitely write a detailed review about it later.
  • I also had a Garnier Ambre Solair body sunscreen which I forgot to include, as well as a deodorant and face cream.

Body Products (all are travel sized):

  • Clarins Smoothing Body Scrub. This is a very gentle finely milled scrub. Will write about it later.
  • Apivita Bergamot and  Green Tea Shower Gel. The scent is nice and refreshing and it leaves the skin clean and ready for a moisturizer.
  • Cowshed Grumpy Cow Uplifting Body Lotion. The scent is definitely uplifting and invigorating. This lotion is moisturizing but not sticky. I definitely want to try other Cowshed lotions now.

Hair Products:

I took Apivita Proploine Shampoo and Nourishing and Repairing Mask for Dry-Dehydrated Hair with me. Shampoo is in the Mane ‘N Tail bottle as I did not want to take a whole 250 ml bottle. Both products worked brilliant on my hair after the sun and sea. You can read my review here.

Extra Products:

  • I had only only perfume with me and it was Jo Malone’s Blackberry and Bay cologne. Read about it here.
  • I also had Elemis’ Pro-Collagen  Advanced Eye Treatment which I also plan to write about later.

As for the makeup,
