It seems like it’s now a tradition to show you what beauty and makeup products I take with me when I am away, just like in this post. So, since I am currently visiting my family, here is a quick update on what products I took with me.
To tell the truth, I barely wear any makeup these days but I did take quite a few products (and a lot of brushes) since people always ask me for a makeover.
I am very happy with the skincare that I’ve packed with me, including a lot of mini bottles which I am currently testing. I only wish I took more than three nail polishes, as my 5-years-old-cousin loves to borrow them
Speaking of my cousin, she insisted on inspecting my “treasures” as she described my makeup bag… When she saw the red lipstick I had, she told me that she had to put it on me, since it’d make me look gorgeous. What can I say? She does know beauty.
Since we are talking about new lip launches today, I thought I’d share about my current top 5 lipsticks in different colour families, from berry to pink; and from red to coral.
I have stupidly forgot to include my favourite current red in the photo (but you can see it here), which is Daniel Sandler’s Red Carpet Red (get it here for £13.25). The shade lives up to the name, whenever I wear it I get a lot of compliments, even from people that don’t like red lips in general. Yes, really. I think this is the best Daniel’s lip product, and I do have quite a few.
What about other four?
Dior Addict 561 Baby Rose Lipstick (review and lip swatches)
I don’t really do nude, so this is my perfect everyday shade, a sheer baby pink with a beautiful delicate shimmer. Don’t worry, it’s nothing like those pearly shades from the past. I’ve been wearing it a lot lately, looks like I will have to re-purchase it soon.
Where to buy: from Selfridges for £24.
Givenchy Le Rouge Lipstick 302 Hibiscus Exclusif (review and lip swatches)

When you have a lot of makeup products – you sometimes forget that you have a certain item in your collection. This is why I love to look through the things that I have from time to time.
Recently I have re-discovered (& love d using) the following products:
BECCA Eye Tint in Pewter (review and swatches)
I don’t know why I’ve stopped using this, it is just SO good! You can apply a very thin and sheer layer, or build up the intensity to a dark and deep shade. The staying power is amazing, on my lids it lasts for the whole day, without primer, without fading or creasing. I need other shades.
Inglot Lipstick in 401 (review)
Out of all the orange and coral lipsticks (and glosses) that I have – this one suits me the best. I don’t like such shades on me that much, but Inglot’s 401 lipstick is simply gorgeous, the colour isRead More
It’s time for the monthly favourites! And I think, next time I will be doing 2013 favourites, so I better start planning it soon. Also, I can’t wait for the holidays, as I have a lot of plans.
Chanel Le Volume de Chanel Mascara in 10 Noir (review)
I still think that it is one of the best mascaras in the World! It makes even my not-so-impressive lashes look fantastic, adds tonnes of volume and is ultra black. I have a mini size but I am so getting a regular one soon!
BECCA Luminous Skin Colour Ultra-Sheer Foundation
I better write a review about this wonderful product soon. As the name suggests, it gives a very sheer coverage and is undetectable on the skin. With a little bit of concealer where you need it – you can get a perfect complexion which looks very natural.
Clarins Instant Concealer (review)
As I’ve already said, it instantly brightens up the way you look, feels light and is pretty long-lasting.
Ellis Faas Hot Lips L406 Rose Violet (review)
My latest love in terms of lip products. I have been wearing it non-stop, as it applies smoothly, has aRead More
Another day, another Face Of The Day.
I am wearing Clarins Extra-Comfort Foundation and Instant Concealer which I will definitely review in the future. But so far I really like both. This is a great foundation for dry skin, it gives a dewy finish and feels comfortable and non-drying. As for concealer, it doesn’t feel heavy or cakey but, at the same time, gives a nice coverage.Read More
