Favourite Beauty Products of 2018

Since I already posted about my favourite makeup products of 2018, it is time for beauty!

Face

I am in my (early) 30s, and I have very dry skin which requires a lot of attention so I take my skincare seriously.  I am aware that all of the products I am going to mention are high end but every single one works incredible for my skin, and  none was a press sample, which proves that I do have a very high opinion about them and am ready to invest.

Artdeco Long Lasting Liquid  Eyeliner in Black 01

Ever since Rouge Bunny Rouge changed the nib of my favourite eye liner, I am on a hunt for a prefect replacement, as it was the one I used pretty much every day. This time I’ve got the ArtDeco one, and it looked almost identical on-line, but unfortunately it is not in real life. However, it is a good one and I hope I will enjoy using it.

Orly Nail Defence Strengthening Protein Treatment

After a very bad experience at a nail salon (this is what happens when you cheat on your manicurist who works far from both your home and work) – I really need to restore my nails,  and this

AW Nail Polish Collections: Essie and Orly

I already showed you the nail polish collection that really caught my attention – OPI’s Nordic, inspired by Scandinavia, and here are two more collections – Essie and Orly.

Orly:

Wow, just wow,  this collection is gorgeous. I’d wear all the shades, except Brush It On, which is beautiful, just not my style. But Highlight, Smoked Out, Darkest Shadow, Edgy and Blend look really cool.
