Today I want to share about one of my favourite makeup products ever – Rouge Bunny Rouge SERENE LIGHT Skin Perfector.
And Skin Perfector is the best word to describe it.
This is the only “foundation” I’ve used on my wedding day. This could be the end of the review, really, as this alone shows how much I love it.
This is a “light-reflective, sheer and very subtly tinted primer”, as the brand describe it, and it is exactly what it is. I find that it gives the skin that polishes and lit-from-within look. As I’ve mentioned, it is very lightly tinted so don’t expect it to
I love writing Christmas gift guides but especially the luxury ones, because when else other than Christmas (and your Birthday, perhaps), you can get away with asking for something high-end? Or, maybe, getting a real treat for your loved ones or even for yourself?
So here are my top picks when it comes to luxury beauty products. And I’ve included only the things which I’ve tried myself and loved, or the things that I think deserve attention.
And, yes, I am aware that it is only October but I know a lot of people who like to plan in advance.
1. Liberty London Advert, £215 from the 16th of October.
This is the ultimate beauty gift, in my opinion. My husband very kindly got it for me last Christmas, and it was one of the best gifts ever. It is worth £600 so £215 is a bargain, if I dare say so.
Alternative: I have posted a lot of other Advent Beauty Calendars on my Facebook page.
2. Goutal Perfumes, £110/£132 for 100 ml from Liberty, Escentual, Harrods.
There is something so special about the Goutal Paris perfumes (the brand was called Annick Goutal previously). The scents are exquisite and sophisticated, the bottles are gorgeous and elegant. If money was not an option I would love to have a whole wardrobe of their beautiful fragrances. But, as for now, I am really enjoying Rose Pompon. Also worth mentioning that the brand recently released alcohol free scents.
3. Foreo Gadgets, £119 for a small one or £169 for a big version from Cult Beauty and Nordstrom.
Brilliant Swedish brand which offers a big variety of facial cleansing and massaging devices, toothbrushes and more. Not only the design is Scandi-chic, the gadgets last forever (here, here, here are mine) but they also are very effective.
4. Omorovicza Skincare Sets Replenish & Restore Collection shown, £95 from Cult Beauty
It’s not a secret that am a big fan of Omorovicza, and, obviously, had to include their sets in the guide. My skin loves it, and that justifies the price tag for me. The set I’ve chosen includes: Miracle Facial Oil (30ml) Rejuvenating Night Cream (15ml), and Omoressence (50ml) .
Alternatives: 111skin, Anne Semonin. Both brands with a hefty price tags which I’ve tried some products from, and loved.
5. Luxury Hair Care: Leonor Greyl, Long Hair Volume Set, €120 from
I love me a luxury hair care products, and Leonor Greyl is as good, as it gets. Everything I’ve tried from the brand was exceptional quality:
I’ve posted about the 2-in-1 cheek and lip products, and about Rouge Bunny Rouge sending me all the shades of their new gorgeous Blush Wands FLOWERS & PORTRAITS (which were already featured in my summer favourites) on my Insta a while ago. So here is finally a review with swatches.
I am a big fan of the brand anyway but this launch was something else, I literally love everything about it. First of all, the RBR play it classy and name their products after the great artists ( I am the biggest fan of Vrubel and Klimt btw), which, as a person who has a degree in culture and arts, I really appreciate.
Also, they stay true to themselves and release that chic decadent packaging with a big attention to the detail. The fact that the outer packaging was red this time made me very happy indeed. In my opinion, when it comes to luxury beauty, every little detail counts, and RBR are well aware of it.
This is a
I used to do monthly favourites but since very often I would repeat a lot of the products, it made sense to do one for each season (here is Spring). While it is mostly about beauty, I do include a few lifestyle items, as well.
In the summer I have been loving my rose fragrances, as always. My biggest obsession was Goutal Eau de Parfum Rose Pompon (as seen on my Insta) from Harrods and Bergdorf. It has the notes of Bulgarian rose essence, taïf rose, peony, blackcurrent, rasberry, pink pepper, woody cedar, patchouli and white musk. And it is just my dream scent, I never want to be without it, ever.
I personally think that very few people can actually write about perfume beautifully, and I am certainly not one of them. So for now I will just insert the brand’s description of the two perfumes I’ve been loving lately. However, I will try my best in the future.
“As you stroll down Rue des Rosiers in Paris, you can feel the vibrant, sparkling atmosphere along the cobblestone street, punctuated with the laughter from café terraces and snippets of shopkeepers’ conversations. In the spring, the climbing rose bushes flower in clusters. The wind stirs their pompom blossoms and swirls their refreshing scent with the sweet, tangy smell of pastries.” See… What is not to love?
Le Labo Rose 31 whih was my Wedding perfume
“The disturbing ambiguity of the Centifolia rose, quickly picked up by a chorus of warm, spicy and woodsy notes such as cumin, olbanum, cedar and a touch of amber…In the background, the declared sensuality of Gaïac wood and cistus highlighted by a distinctly physical animal note, give this perfume a disconcerting sense of mystery”.
R+Co Dallas Thickening Shampoo (review here)
I raved about this shampoo only recently so feel free to read all about it by clicking the link above. Unfortunately (or luckily, I suppose), it has now been replaced by a biotin version which, hopefully, is only better.

AW19 Eye Shadow Palettes: Victoria Beckham, Charlotte Tilbury, Pat McGrath, Urban Decay and Anastasia
Let’s take a look at the new eye shadows launches, shall we?
First of all, the most exciting news – Victoria Beckham launched her Beauty line. So far, there are only eye makeup products but VB will bring out lips and face ones gradually.
Shown above are the Smoky Eye Bricks (£48 each) which are described as Satin Matte Eyeshadows. There are four shades to chose from: Signature, Tuxedo, Royal and Tweed. And, while I was contemplating which one to get, Signature or Tweed, they were sold out. Don’t worry though, as they will be back in stock September 23rd. However, I did manage to get a Satin Kajal Liner in Bordeaux (£20) and Lid Lustre in Mink (£28).
Charlotte is a genius when it comes to advertising and marketing. She knows how to make people want her products. She just launched her third Christmas palette, and made it available only for a day in September. But it is coming back, along with other products, in October.
If you are not familiar with her Christmas palettes, they are divided into four looks, and this time they are: Happy Glow (gold and caramel), Love Glow (pinks), Dream Glow (greens) and Seduce Glow ( festive shimmers and black).
Here is a photo of her previous two palettes, so that it gives you a better idea.
