Face Of The Day: Hot Pink Lips and Neutral Eyes

So this my  Face of the Day!

I was wearing hot pink lips and cheeks so I kept the eyes neutral. I’ve used matte brown eye shadows with grey eye liner instead of black to make it softer.

Please don’t make any comments about my brows, I plan to change the shape a bit so I don’t really pluck them right now.

Korres Eyebrow Pencil Review and Swatches

When I was a teenager for me makeup was black  or dark brown eyeliner mostly, lol.  Luckily, as time passed, I’ve realized that I was wrong. Now I know that it’s very important to have a perfect skin tone and groomed brows.

I was blonde until I turned 5 or even 6 ( my Dad has the lightest  blonde hair tone, and yes, a  lot of women  are jealous that they have to pay a fortune to get something that man has from nature) but then my hair turned darker.

I’ve experemented with my hair a lot when I was a teenager (what about you?) but one thing was always the same… My brows.

Although my hair got darker my brows are still light. So brow pencil is an essential for me!

And here is the brow pencil that I currently love: Korres Eyebrow Pencil in Medium Shade.

I got mine for £ 8.00 at zuneta.com And it is described as: 

Korres Wild Rose Concealer Review

Last week something really bad happened! I ran out of my  Korres Wild Rose Concealer. I realized how much I liked this product only after I used the last drop of it . So I am sorry, there will be no swatches, only review.

Here is how the packaging looks like:

And this is how they describe it:

“Korres Wild Rose Concealer contains ultra-fine pigments that reflect light in multiple directions for a luminous effect. Wild Rose extract increases skin radiance and moisture while also offering antioxidant benefits and diminishing fine lines, wrinkles, and hyper-pigmentation. This brand favorite is clinically proven to brighten, firm, and hydrate skin while functioning as an eyeshadow base and preventing creasing.”

The US price is $20 but here we get it for £ 18.00  (I got mine from zuneta.com) and I have it in WRC2 (fair). And this is how it looks like in real life.

So why do I like about it so much?

It works great for the under eye area and the area around the nose. And this is where I’ve been using it. I personally don’t like it for concealing spots and blemishes; for that I use Make Up For Ever concealer.

But after I’ve used it under my eyes, my whole face looked different! It really brightens up your look and helps when you didn’t have enough of sleep (I am sure we all have that from time to time).

Although it doesn’t

12 Favourite Beauty Products of March

So many of you asked me to do a “favourite beauty products of the month” posts that now I just have to do it lol. I already reviewed some products so I will just give the link in this case. As for the other products – I plan to review some of them later but feel free to ask questions and leave comments. Ok, here we go! 🙂

1.Dream Cream by Lush

I wrote a review this week so you can read it here

2. BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl

I got this products for £ 32.00 at zuneta. This is a lot for a highlighter you may say. But you get 50 ml and it will last you forever plus this product is SO good. I will be sure to write a detailed review. Why did I get it you may ask? Lisa Eldridge said that this is one of her favourite products ever and I was looking for a new highlighter so I had to buy it 😉 You can watch  Lisa’s video about liquid highlighters  here

3.Toleriane Dermo-Cleanser, Gentle non-foaming cleanser by La Roche-Posay

You can read about it more at the official website. This cleanser works great for my very dry and sensitive skin. When I bought it I got samples of almost all products of the brand and I really loved some of them. And what do you think about this brand?

4.BI-FACIL – Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover by Lancome

This is one of the best makeup removers that I’ve ever tried and I know that a lot of ladies love it, too.

5. OMBRES 5 LUMIÈRES 5 Colour Harmony for Eyes in #7 Bronze Gold by Yves Saint Laurent

I love everything about these shadows : design, texture, colours. The only thing that I don’t like is the price. Promise to write a review and make swatches about this palette.

6.Liquid Metal in Phenomena (silver) by Illamasqua

This product creases but it’s too beautiful so I am really in love with it. Also if you use it over the shadows everything is ok. Review and swatches here

8.Vinyl Gloss by Rimmel in Punk Princess 197 (clear with golden sparkles)

You can read more about this gloss and see the swatches here. I really like Rimmel glosses and have a few of them. But this shade was in my purse almost all the time this month.

7. Bourjois Limited Edition 2009 Vintage Blush in Amber D’or

I HAD to buy something from “Rendez-vous à Paris” by Bourjois. I am so proud that I bought only one blush although I had a big temptation to buy everything. Yes, I am addicted to pretty things.  These are the same products that you can get from the brand but with an amazing design.

8.Vinyl Gloss by Rimmel in Punk Princess 197 (clear with golden sparkles)

How Groomed Do You Want Your Man to Be?

Today I have an interesting topic to blog about. How groomed do you want your man to be? What “beauty rituals” your man has on a daily basis?! Are you happy with the way it is? And if you are not how do you change the way it is? I wish I could go into more details but the person who I am talking about “reads” (looks through my blog, lol).

But I would really love to hear all your thoughts about your man/ brother/ father/male friends.  How polished to you think men should be?

And this is what I got for my man this month. It was pretty hard to tell him that he really needs it. But I did it!
