Spring/Summer is the perfect time to experiment with makeup, the prefect time to add a pop of colour to your look! And what better shade to try then aqua blue or turquoise, the shade that represents the sky and water?
You can wear aqua as you would wear a regular black or brown eye liner, or inside the lower waterline for an interesting accent.

Today I’d love to tell you about a Korres product that I’ve been loving for the last month and it’s their jasmine Body Butter. I’ve wanted it ever since I got a sample of it with my zuneta order. So I was very happy to get it finally. But I got mine in 50ml because I wanted it to be small so that I can always have it in my handbag.
I’ve been using this mostly for hands and sometimes body. I have to say that if you love jasmine this is a must-have for you! It is also mousturizing and nourishing enough for my dry hands.
Here is what Korres promises and I agree with all statements:
- Jasmine Body Butter is enriched with Shea Butter to soften, moisturize & restructure the skin.
- A proprietary blend of Sunflower, Almond & Avocado Oils restores skin’s elasticity & smoothness.
- Quince extract acts as a soothing agent to heal and nourish stressed skin.
And what is your favourite Korres body butter?
I remember some time ago I had an idea of counting how much was worth the makeup that I was wearing. And last week, after I saw such post on one of the blog that I like, I though about doing the same thing.
So here is the makeup that I wore on Friday.
Firts of all I’ve used a Mineral Primer by BECCA, £34 (my review here). Then I’ve mixed two foundations – Bourjois 10 Hour Sleep Effect in 71 Abricote Clair,£9.5 with Max Factor Xperience Foundation in 85 Deep Soapstone, £10
I’ve used Chanel Bronze Universel (£26 or £28 I can’t remember) to countorand to add some colour to my face, highlighted with BECCA’s Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl, £33 (review here) and added some BECCA’s Beach Tint in Grapefruit, £19 (review here).

While I was browsing different on-line stores from the US (sometimes my friends buy things for me) I’ve noticed several new products. So here they are.
Laura Mercier Full Blown Volume Lash Building Mascara, $ 24
Full Blown Volume Lash Building Mascara uses advanced hair-care technology to coat lashes with a ‘glazing’ gel formula that sculpts, holds and sets each lash for maximum impact. Super-thick, super-full, super-long, super-curled, super-dark.

I am really loving Korres body products and buy them regularly. So when I saw that this season the brand offers a Fig collection set – I had to get it. The value is £20.50 but it retails for £15 which makes it a good deal, in my opinion.
So you get:
- Korres Fig Showergel 250ml
- Korres Fig Body Butter 150ml
I haven’t tried Korres shower gels before for some reason, so it was a nice discovery for me. Fig Shower gel is mild but at the same time cleanses really well and does not dry out the skin. The scent is amazing, it stays on the skin for some time but is not overwhelming.
As for the body butter – I have been a fan for a long time already. This butter, which is
