New Beauty Purchases

I haven’t posted about my new beauty and makeup purchases in a while, although I did feature them on Instargam, so here is a round-up.

Let’s start with beauty, I’ve actually got three products from Kiehl’s.

Original Musk Bath and Shower Liquid Body Cleanser which I’ve got after reading all the raves from Sandra, and for some reason I was expecting a more intense scent but I still like it.

I’ve also decided to finally try the hyped up concentrates – Midnight Recovery Concentrate and Morning Reviving Concentrate. I will definitely write detailed reviews later on, but so far I can say that on my very dry skin I can’t use them on their own, as I often do with serums/oils, I have to use a cream on top.

Finally, beauty wise, although I did not buy this product myself, and it was a gift from a friend, I’ve decided to mention it, as it is such a  cool one – Tromborg Aromatherapy Body Oil Lavender Rose Tree (which I have already included in my favourites). From the motto ‘Scandinavian mood’ to luxurious packaging, nice formula and divine scent – it is as good as it gets.

As for makeup, it was all about Chanel, YSL, Smith & Cult and

I have to say that I am still loving all of my favourites from April but here are some more products that I would like to add.  Four makeup items and three beauty.

I did not expect this first product to make it to my favourites, as I have been neglecting all my bronzers for some time now, and I have tonnes. But I really like this new Clarins bronzer from their summer collection. It is called Bronzing & Blush Compact (full review coming up soon), as it adds warmth and that subtle sun-kissed effect to the face; you can use each shade separately or mix them all together. The other day when I was wearing it one of my  best male friends told me that whatever I have on my cheeks – it looks amazing, and makes me look beautiful, and it was this bronzer. Yes, some of my poor male friends know things like that.

Speaking of glow, I have started piling on using my Mary Lou Manizer from theBalm again. It gives the most gorgeous sheen to the face, and makes me look decent even when I barely sleep due to all the deadlines. Get it! Seriously, if you love a good highlighter, you need this in your life.

Beauty Inspiration: Futuristic and Dystopian

I have to admit that I am slightly obsessed with dystopian novels, and  love all those futuristic and manus x machina themes. And, yes, I do have a board on Pinterest.

It may have something to do with the fact that I did culture studies back at uni and read lots of philosophical theories on the subject.  Whatever it is, I have been always fascinated with the futuristic beauty.

Here is actually a photo I’ve posted on Instagram recently.

Max Factor Voluptuous False Lash Effect Mascara Review

Regular readers know that I am a mascara snob.

Although most people think that mascara is the product on which you can save, I usually invest in mine, with only one exception. And that is Max Factor mascaras.

I have reviewed all their mascara launches which came out in the last several years, you can read them if you click on Max Factor category.  I think they  all are absolutely brilliant, and I always recommend them not only to my readers but also to my friends. And I know that some of my girlfriends are now fans, too.

Max Factor Voluptuous False Lash Effect Mascara Review

And today I want to talk about the latest release which is  Voluptuous False Lash Effect Mascara, it was already mentioned here.

Unlike most MF mascaras, it comes in the colourful teal and gold packaging, so a lot of people may like that.

As for the mascara itself, the fist thing that you notice is the brush which is huge (see the comparison photos below), and looks different from anything else I’ve used. According to the brand, helix shape enables a 360° application. And that is the
