Regular readers know that I am the biggest fan of Givenchy Le Rouge lipstick, this is why I am super excited about the launch of Rouge A Porter version.
It seems like these will have a glossy balmy texture, and will come in a lot of different shades.
Yes, please!Read More
I can get inspiration for the posts pretty much from everything, and often it is music.
The other day I have been listening to this song (The Echo Friendly “Panic” here) with the following lyrics: “Put on my blush and lipstick and try to look optimistic”.I was having a rough time, so it made me think…
Makeup can be seen [and often is] as something shallow, and vain, but it is not necessarily so. If it makes you feel better, and lifts up your spirits, why not using it?
Of course, it won’t change the situation, but it can be a great distraction, and even “help”, during the worst times.
I think it is easy to get all apathetic when it’s hard to see the reasons to keep going. But, when you make an effort and put on makeup, do your hair and nails, and spritz your favourite perfume – it makes a difference. Trust me, I know what I am talking about. After all, how can looking bad when you feel bad can help?
And… what are my “optimistic” shades of blush and lipstick. DefinitelyRead More

Here is, as promised, the second part of my Favourite Beauty Products of 2014 features.
This time it’s all about the eyes & lips. Enjoy, and don’t forget to share yours.
Eye Shadows Platte – theBalm Shady Lady Vol 2 (review)
I have re-discovered this beauty in summer, and this was the palette I travelled with most of the times, amazing formulas, great colour selection, thin packaging and great mirror – what else do you need? theBalm eye shadows are among the best.
Mascara – Clarins Be Long (review)
I’ve managed to get lush looking lashes with Be Long, it separates perfectly, is never clumpy, and gives a nice , rather dramatic effect, if you use several coats. The brush, for me, is mess-free. I have recommended it to several friends, and they loved it, too.
Cream Eye Shadow – Max Factor Excess Shimmer Eye Shadows (review)
Definitely one of the coolest eye shadows I’ve discovered in ages. Mousse-like texture that allows you to get a sheer hint of shimmer, or layer it on for a more intense look. It is stunning both ways!
Eye Shadows – Rouge Bunny Rouge Eye Shadow in Solstice Halcyon (review)
