It is time for March beauty favourites, and this month I have discovered some new amazing products and re-discoverer some products I’ve been loving for years.
Jo Malone Vanilla & Anise Cologne
I have finally picked up a second bottle of this spicy and warm scent, which is among my all-time favourites. I like that it is relatively simple, but not boring. Vanilla & Anise is not extremely mainstream, and I don’t meet hundreds of people smelling the same. I better write a proper feature about it soon.
Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfectors (review and swatches)
I could be “the face” for these glosses What do you think, Clarins? First of all I adore these balms and I always have them around. But also I have converted so many people to them (it’s like a sect now). Yes, I even got e-mails from people telling me that they’ve discovered this gloss thanks to my numerous raves and now love it, too. And are you a fan already?
As for the new products…
Josie Maran 100% Pure Agran Oil (review)

I have re-organized a lot of my makeup/skincare/body care/ hair care products this month. Yes, I am still trying to think of the best storage for my nail polishes.
It was a great thing to do since I a) re-discovered a lot of products b) gave away cosmetics that I don’t use any more to my aunt c) it’s just nice to have everything neat and tidy.
I actually like keeping some of my most-used products in the Jo Malone packaging, the classic cream and black boxes fit enough of products and look nice in my flat. Above you can see my personal most used primers-bases-concealers.
Showing you my top “base” products seemed like a nice idea, so here we go:
Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer in Ivory (review and face swatches)
I did not like it that much at first, but now I absolutely adore it. It gives a good coverage for a tinted moisturizer, and is a great product for the days when (you &) your skin is tired and lacks a glow, as itRead More
Today I want to tell you about the eye shadow which was definitely the “eye shadow of the month”. I’ve used it almost every single week day, paired with dark brown eye liner and lots of mascara. This was my signature look in March…
And it is Solstice Halcyon by Rouge Bunny Rouge. One of my favourite eye shadows from the brand, and from my entire collection.

Regular readers know my big love for Rouge Bunny Rouge’s Raven Glaze, a glossy ultra black eye liner. Yes, it is not matte or shiny, it is like a black gloss!
I was actually intrigued when I found out that they re-vamped it because I couldn’t imagine how it could be even better. I actually have a sample of the new version, so here is what’s the deal.
It is all about the nib! Now it is very thin and precise, you can easily create even the most delicate line, fill the gaps between the lashes or create a sharp cat eye. And, of course, you can make the line thicker, if you wish.
But please keep in mind thatRead More

- Peter Thomas Roth CC Cream (which is great, by the way), nice coverage but doesn’t feel heavy on.
- Tom Ford Bruised Plum lipstick. It is gorgeous, will write about it in all the details soon.
