While I was shopping for my friends & family, I just had to get some products for myself, too, right? And here is a little preview of the things that I’ve bought.
First of all some products from Cult Beauty.
There was a GWP from Costes, so I just had to get their shower gel: one for me, one for a friend, as a special treat, to get a mini soap and a a mini bath soak.
I have also picked up a set from REN for sensitive skin, speaking of REN, the brand brought out amazing gift sets this year.
And a new cleanser, this time from Oskia, and so far I am really loving it.
And IRead More

It was quite a long time since I did my Current Top 5 Affordable Makeup Products, back in March to be precise. So, I think, it’s time for an updated version.
L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Extraordinaire in 100 Mezzo Pink (review and lip swatches)
I am sure that it’s not a surprise that I’ve included this lip product, it is now my handbag staple, gorgeous baby pink everyday colour, beautiful moisturizing and long-lasting formula. Nice applicator and delicious scent. I highly recommend.
Ok, I know this is cheating because I have two shades but I love them both equally. Dark red 08 and dusky rose 80, they glide-on like a dream, despite the matte long -lasting formula. Can be used on their own all over the lips, or to cheat a fuller lip, with lipstick or gloss on top.

This month I don’t have that many favourites but I absolutely adore all the products that I’ve included…
I want to start with a product that I wear pretty much daily - Clarins Be Long Mascara (review), this is one of the best mascaras I have ever used. You can get a subtle look, with defined long lashes, but you can also build it up for an intense look, is really works! Not to mention that the formula makes the lashes grow longer with time. I have already recommended Be Long to some of my friends, you would recommend it to you, too.
The other two makeup products are for lips. One is for a subtle effect, and the other one is a bolder option.

I’ve wanted to try L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Extraordinaire for some time but just couldn’t decide which shade one to get. That was until I saw 100 Mezzo Pink.
You know me, and my love for light milky pink shimmering lip products, they are my version of nude.
You can already tell that I am absolutely in love with the shade. But what about this product in general? I think it is absolutely amazing, everything about it! Well, to be honest, I am not a huge fan of the packaging but it is not that important.
I like the sponge applicator which is very convenient, and makes it very easy to use the lipstick.
As for the formula, intense shades are like liquid lipsticks, you get a full-on colour with a liquid texture and comfort of a gloss. My shade is like aRead More
