Recently I fell completely in love with the new Max Factor’s Shimmer Excess release, so I’ve decided to make a round-up of my favourite affordable cream eye shadows in general.
All of them are definitely worth the attention, and they prove that you don’t need to pay a fortune to get a high quality makeup these days.
I have published detailed reviews about each in the past, so if you want to know more – just click the links, included in this feature.
Max Factor Excess Shimmer Eye Shadows (review and swatches)
These have a very light texture, give a beautiful dimensional shimmer and stay on really well. Can be used on their own, or on top of any other product. Gorgeous effect, a must-have.
Maybelline Color Tattoo 24Hr (Permanent Taupe, Eternal Bronze, On and On Bronze; Metallic Pomegranate)
Color Tattoos did get a lot of hype when they were brought out. And rightly so! Opaque colours, blendable texture and long-lasting formula. MetallicRead More
Regular readers will probably know that a good hand cream is a must have for me. If I could have only one beauty product with me in my bag, that’d be it (and a lip balm, if I can have two).
I have very dry skin, especially on the hands, and I love to re-apply the cream whenever I need to do it
or feel like doing it.
This is why I’ve decided to share my personal top 5 hand creams. Unfortunately, most of them are not cheap but I, personally, am ready to pay for the quality.
Elemis Pro-Radiance Hand Cream (review)
It is probably my favourite hand cream ever, it instantly makes the skin feel moisturized and smooth, such a relief, especially in the cold(er) months. Plus I could totally tell that my nails were in much better condition when I was using it.
The price is £24 from Feel Unique
Aromatherapy Associates Renewing Rose Hand Cream (review)
Another favourite of mine, thisRead More
It feels like I have been using all those melting cleansers and cleansing balms for ages now. I don’t even remember when I did use something different, and really enjoyed it.
But today I want to tell you about such product, and it’s L’Occitane Brightening Cleansing Foam. I actually got it as a gift with purchase after buying quite a few products from L’Occitane.
And I can’t believe how much I like it. First of all it smells amazing ( is it immortelle floral water that smells so good?), has a very convenient pump which makes it easy to use the product, and has a nice design in general. All these factors make it a pleasure to use such cleanser.
The product feelsRead More
I have a new rule when it comes to beauty products, one out – one in (ok, maybe more than one in)! Meaning that I am allowed to buy new beauty products only after I finish some from those that I already have. This is why I get a bit excited when I see a new empty bottle in my bathroom.
I actually have some new items on the way to me, as I type. Can’t wait to try my them all!
I know that it’s not the end of Autumn yet, and there are still three weeks, but I have big doubts that I will finish anything else by the end of the month.
And by the way, here are Summer Empties. I’ve decided to do such features every season.
I really love bath oils, so, since I’ve used up two of my favourites Lavera Organic Wild Rose Bath Oil and Cowshed Lazy Cow Soothing Bath & Body Oil to the very last drop – I’ve already ordered some new ones, which are on their way to me.
Since I have very dry skin, I have to use body moisturizers, sometimes more than once a day, so I go through them quite quickly and this month I have finished the following products:
The Body Shop Pink Grapefruit Body Butter. I think these butters don’t need any introduction and explanation, they are fantastic. This particular one was a present from the boyfriend which made even more special.
Aromatherapy Assosiates Enrich Body Serum. I never used a body serum before, and was excited to try such kind of product, as it makes sense to use serums/oils on the body before a cream just, as you would on the face. It works! Plus, asRead More
It’s been forever since I did a post about the products in my shower, and I am always curious to see what products other people use, so thought I’d share about mine, too.
1. Clarins Tonic Bath & Shower Concentrate - review.
This is an instant pick-me-up product. I love using it in the mornings, or after a workout. I am a big fan of Clarins Tonic range in general, by the way.
2. LUSH Glogg Shower – review.
I really love this spicy and warm fragrance, very comforting, and is a perfect scent for a colder weather.
3. LUSH Happy Hippy Shower Gel -review
It is a nice citrus jelly shower product, with a subtle fragrance, so can be used both in the mornings andRead More
