I am definitely not a fan of the crazy over-contouring but I love a natural looking product for some definition, and have been using NYX Taupe for years until I came across Monika’s review of Inglot HD 504 sculpting powder. I had to get it.
And it is as good, as it gets. A cool toned natural looking powder that blends into the skin and gives you a “natural” shadow. Not only the shade is great but also the formula – it is not at all powdery but smooth and easy to use, it melds into the skin and last pretty well.
If you have a fair-to-light complexion and don’t want to spend a fortune on a contouring product (this one is £10/$15)- tryRead More
It was my Birthday this weekend so I’ve decided to share with you what I wore and what makeup I’ve used. I don’t see Birthdays as a big deal (after a certain age, ha!) but it is always cool to dress up and spend time with friends and family.
Of course, I went for red with a touch of black, outfit wise. And here is the makeup I’ve used:
Vichy BB Cream, I need to buy a full size of it soon, it is an amazing light base which gives some luminosity. Rouge Bunny Rouge Naked Disguise Glide Concealer which is brilliant for the under eye area. Inglot HD Sculpting Powder in 504 is my favourite for that natural looking shadow and theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer for some glow.
Lips and Nails
Surprisingly I’ve used a very affordable trio: NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Transylvania which I am obsessed withRead More
It’s time for February favourites, and considering that I was sick for 10+ days in the shortest month of the year, there isn’t that much to show. But here are the products that really stood out to me.
Soap & Glory Whipped Clean Shower Butter (review)
Moisturising shower product that smells of almonds, pistachios and vanilla. Oh, yes! It is an instant cheer-me-up and works great for shaving, too.
Kerastase Mousse Bouffante Luxurious Volumising Mousse
I’ve been on a hunt for a new product for voluminous hair for some time now, and this is the one I’ve picked up, as mentioned here. I was a bit worried, as I haven’t used a mousse in more than 10 years but this one really delivers. Mousse Bouffante creates beautiful big hair without being sticky or making the hair look or feel greasy.
Uriage Gyn-Phy Intimate Hygiene Protective Cleansing Gel
Probably the best product for intimate hygiene I’ve ever used, it is gentle but effective, smells really nice and is a great way to start and finish the day with. We talk so much about facial cleansers and shower gels but not enough about the intimate washes. And this is a great one, go get it.
Maybelline Master Smoky Shadow Pencil in Smoky Chocolate (Review and Swatches)
I have re-discovered myRead More
Ok, I am finally doing it! Writing 2015 yearly favourites that is. The thing is when I started writing this post I’ve gathered so many products that I’d be going on, and on about them all. This is why here are 15 I loved the most. 15 since it was 2015, yes, I know…
If I had to choose only 1 product that would probably be Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in 25 Alluring Rose (review and swatches)
Long-time readers know how much I love my blushers. And this year it was all about this one, I’ve barely used anything else. Creme Puff Blush gives that luminous glow that instantly brightens up the complexion. The formula is incredibly soft and smooth and blends into the skin beautifully. I have several shades but Alluring Rose is the love of my [beauty] love.
The other favourite is still my Trish McEvoy Golden Bronzer (review). As you can see from the photo above, it is very well loved. It warms up the complexion without looking orange or muddy. I like the hint of radiance it gives, too.
BECCA’s Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl (review) is still the best glow-and-radiance-in-a-bottle product out there. I usually mix it with foundation to make my skin look “healthy”. This formula and shade = perfection.
If I had to pick only one “foundation” of the year – that’d be Clarins HydraQuench Tinted Moisturizer (review and swatches), hands down. It is dry skin’s best friend. Clarins know how toRead More
I haven’t been buying that many beauty products recently ( I feel like I am saying that all the time), but here is what I’ve got in the last several weeks.
I am a huge Kerastase fan, and always love trying new products from them so this time I’ve decided to buy a shampoo which should stimulate the growth of hair. I’ve heard some positive things about it, so can’t wait to see if it is true actually.
Batiste Original Dry Shampoo, mini size
I have a big can of Toni & Guy dry shampoo but wanted something small that I could take in a handbag with me. And you just can’t go wrong with Batiste.
