It’s the last day of January, so it means that it’s
my dearest brother’s Birthday, time for monthly favourites.
First of all, this month it’s been all about the face oils, different ones, some of them are pictured below. As I’ve shared recently I’ve been walking a lot, thinking more about the food I eat and about my skincare, and I can definitely see the positive changes in the way I feel, and in the way my skin looks.
You can read my post about the oils shown above here. In fact, as I am writing this, I plan on purchasing some new oils. I’ve heard so many great things about Tarte’s Maracuja Oil and Josie Maran’s oil, so have to give them a go! Or maybe I should just get this set? It looks SO good!
I have been also loving all my body and hair oils and plan to get some new ones, too. Making the list, so your recommendations are welcomed.
As for other beauty products, I’ve been loving:
Maybelline Color Tattoo 24HR in Metallic Pomegranate (review)
It is such a gorgeous brownish purple with golden shimmer, my new love in terms of eye shadows.
Clarins Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base in Rose
Review coming soon. If you want a subtle glow and radiance to your skin, this is the product for you. There are quite a few ways you can use it, and I personally love using it all over the face under the light base, so that it canRead More
Maybelline Color Tattoo 24HR in Metallic Pomegranate was an impulse purchase. I jut saw it, and had to get it. I actually already have some Maybelline cream eye shadows but don’t use them enough.
But this one I have been using every single day ever since I’ve got it, the colour is just gorgeous! It actually reminds be a bit of one of my all time favourite shade, but this one is definitely has more purple to it.Read More
Some of you may remember the feature about the products that I’ve chosen for my Mum, and here are the products that she picked up herself.
The other day my Mum called me to tell that she had some important work events and she needed some makeup products (she doesn’t use makeup on a daily basis). I told her that she could pick anything she wanted from my “collection”.
The thing is that I wasn’t home when she was at my place, and she had to choose everything herself. It was very overwhelming for her so she called me about three or four times, but here are the products that she got.
Hourglass Film Noir mascara, she loved theRead More
I have quite a few Maybelline Colorama nail polishes, so I was curious to try the re-launched range. Compared to the old design (and my horrible photos) this new look is so much better, it is chic and looks like it could be a part of a luxury line.
The brush is also easier to use now, it’s not a wide-and-thin one but I can’t complain.
But since I have a lot of red nail polishes already (my favourite has to be Revlon Red, the best red, in my opinion), I gave this one to my aunt along with red lipstick. My uncle better appreciate, ha!Read More
I have finally picked up several shades of Maybelline’s Color Tattoo 24HR eye shadows some time ago so I am ready to share my opinion.
I was expecting a lot from this product as everyone raves about the quality, and I was not disappointed.
I have got three shades to begin with: Eternal Gold, Permanent Taupe, and And On Bronze.
They come in a glass jar and, in my opinion, the packaging looks great for the price, not worse than more expensive alternatives. As for the shades, the availability depends on the country. The shades that I have picked are all beautiful:
- Eternal Gold is a very shimmery gold, I’d say that the shimmer in this one is a bit too big for my taste.
- On And On Bronze is a shade that a lot of people should like as it is very wearable metallic bronze. It should look amazing in summer.
- Permanent Taupe, it is the most interesting shade in my opinion. It’s a
