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)

It’s been a while since I did a post about brushes… So, I think, it’s time a for a little update. I’ve decided to show you my most used face brushes whether it’s on myself or when I am doing someone’s makeup.
There are 6 that I absolutely have to have.
Let’s take a look:
Rouge Bunny Rouge Face Contour Brush 012 (Review)
This is my newest brush, and my favourite for contouring. I have quite a few which I’ve collected over the years but they all are forgotten now, since I have this one. It has a perfect shape that goes right under the cheekbones. The bristles are firm but soft, which makes it a perfect contouring brush.
- Can be purchased from Beauty Bay and Beauty Habit.
Japonesque 924 Travel Blush Brush (review)
Japonesque rule the brush world, they are among the best. And their 924 Blush Brush is my favourite face brush that I own from them. It feels incredibly nice and soft on the skin and blends the product nicely. This is my blush brush of choice but I often use it for powder, too, as I am not a big fan of big powder brushes.
Daniel Sandler Blusher Brush (mentioned here)
Here is a quick update about some brand new luxury makeup products that caught my attention.

I am loving this latest Lancome and Jason Wu collaboration for Autumn 2014. I love Lancome anyway, and with such gorgeous design, it would be rude not to get anything.
The design was inspired by the midnight floral pattern in Jason’s fre-fall fashion collection. And I personally love the floral print on the black fabric or cases.
So what is a part of the collaboration?
