It’s been quite some time since I did the “empties” post last time. Since this weekend I was cleaning my bathroom, and found several empty bottles, I though I’d share with you. I usually throw those away immediately, but here are some that I’ve kept for the post
So, here we go…
A lot of Clarins, nothing new here. Clarins Extra-Comfort Toning Lotion for Dry and Sensitive Skin and Clarins Water Comfort One-Step Cleanser with Peach Essential Water are simply brilliant. Both products! One of the best toner, and a great morning cleanser when you don’t have time or don’t want to spend a lot of time massaging in your cleansing balm. I will definitely re-purchase both in the future.
The Double Serum doesn’t even need an introduction, it was probably the most talked about, multi-award winning, serum in the last two years. And rightly so, it is very good.
The best on-line shop to buy Clarins from is Escentuals.

It’s time for May beauty favourites! It was very hard to narrow things down but I’ve managed to, almost.
This month I was away for two weeks (one week at one place, and then another one – different one), but I always had Elemis Skin Brush (review) with me, and I’ve used it religiously. I personally use it on the dry body, brushing towards the heart. The results are amazing, but you can read all the dets in my review linked above. I have two Elemis brushes, because I just had to! And I would definitely recommend you picking one up.
I did take a picture of only ten products on purpose, so that I don’t go on and on in this post. But I just have to mention this Rouge Bunny Rouge brush, it’s my staple now.
Dior Addict 561 Baby Rose Lipstick (review and lip swatches)
If you follow me on Twitter, you know that I am currently away for the second week. Unfortunately, I am busy from dusk till dawn but I do appreciate the productive working time.
Here is a sneak preview of what I’ve packed makeup and beauty wise with me. I was very strict with myself, and limited it all to one (no7 Boots) travel makeup bag.
Here is what makeup I had with me. All products from my current top 5 luxury makeup favourites post, a lot of Rouge Bunny Rouge products, as I plan to write a feature for the brand soon, three blushes (I ended up using only tarte) and three lip shades, inducing my Tom Ford lipstick.
As for skincare, this isRead More
Can you believe that today is the first of May? Last month of Spring, time flies…
New month = new monthly favouries. And I really love all the products below.
Makeup wise, I had pretty much the same favourites, as in March: , RBR eye shadows in Solstice Halcyon, Marc Jacobs’ Lola nail polish, NYX’s Taupe, Peter Thomas Roth CC Cream and Clarins’ gloss.
This is why this time I want to tell you about some other products:
This month I just have to mention two brushes. First of all, I’ve been using a “classic” flat foundation brush. I usually apply bases with my fingers or kabuki Sigma brushes but I’ve decided to start using those original foundation brushes again. So, I’ve been loving this one from Lancome. I still remember how much I wanted to buy that set, my friend bought it for me in the States. And I like the results and the finish it creates.
My other brush hero is Rouge Bunny Rouge’s Face Contour Brush 012. This is a brilliant tool for contouring, more details coming soon.
