Finally, the craziest months work-wise are behind, and I will have more time for important things in life, like beauty (ha!), catching up on the series that I am watching, reading books, and my friends.
Here are the products I have been loving in July. And, although, I have mentioned some of them so many times, there are also some new additions.
Just like last month, I have been using Rouge Bunny Rouge Flawless Face Powder Precious Velvet (review) non-stop. It is a gorgeous light powder which sets the makeup, perfects the skin and looks really natural on.
Shadows wise, I am sure this won’t be a surprise at all to see Solstice Halcyon (review and swatches) yet again because I simply adore that eye shadow, and also Kiko’s Water Eye shadow in 202 which is a gorgeous brownish purple with golden shimmer, this beauty deserves a feature, so stay tuned.
For some reason, lately I haven’t been that much into red and berry lips, so it was about rosewood Clarins which I promise to post about soon, as it is a perfect nude, if you ask me, and L’Oreal Glam Shine in Dazzle 201 Sparkle Shower (review and lip swatches) which gives that oh-so-pretty sparkle in the sun and feels amazing on the lips.

I have been very good with my beauty purchases lately, meaning that I’ve been buying only the products that I really want/need (I do have a wish list, and will probably share soon).
Instead, I have been investing in different beauty procedures and accessories & apparel/shoes. This week I have picked only two products, and I am very happy with both.
I went to Lush to pick a big bottle of Rose Jam shower gel which I adore (will get it later this week though), but got this amazing soap. Not only itRead More
Remember my post about Lush’s shower gels in which I’ve promised myself to buy The Olive Brunch and Flying Fox?
I did get The Olive Brunch, and, in fact, already used it up. I somehow can’t find the photo I took, and since I already threw the bottle away, have to use the stock photo, so please excuse that.
Lush are so right about calling their shower gel “Mediterranean” (read sunshine & sun), that is exactly what it is! A blend of mandarins, bergamot oil, vine leaves and Fair Trade olive oil.
Not only it smells amazing, and rather natural, especially compared to other Lush scents (which I personally love but others often find too strong) but if feels great on the skin. It is non-drying andRead More
This weekend I’ve re-organized products in my bathroom and made a list of the things that I need to pick up, mostly new shower gels and body creams, as I use those up rather quickly. I have noticed that I have five Lush shower gels, so decided to make a lill’ round up.
Lush Rose Jam Shower Gel (review)
This is my favourite one. While some people may find it too sweet and sugary, I am a huge fan, it smells just like rose jam and feels lovely on the skin, not drying at all.
Lush Glogg Shower Gel (review)
The other seasonal, LE one, which I really love, it is spicy and warm, exactly what you need during the AW season.
Lush PrinceRead More
I have a thing for Lush shower gels, and I just had to get their new offering for VDay – Prince Charming (£4.65 for 100), which I have already mentioned here.
This scent is pretty awesome actually. Although my personal favourite is their Rose Jam, which a lot of people may find too sweet and overpowering, I love this one a lot, too.
Lush describe it as “sweet and floral, yet zingy and refreshing”, and I totally agree. It is a blend of marshmallow root, Fair Trade vanilla and fresh pomegranate juice, and it smells delicious! It is more subtle than it is in the bottle. In fact, my male friend tried it (I may forced him), and he actually had toRead More
