Finally, the craziest months work-wise are behind, and I will have more time for important things in life, like beauty (ha!), catching up on the series that I am watching, reading books, and my friends.
Here are the products I have been loving in July. And, although, I have mentioned some of them so many times, there are also some new additions.
Just like last month, I have been using Rouge Bunny Rouge Flawless Face Powder Precious Velvet (review) non-stop. It is a gorgeous light powder which sets the makeup, perfects the skin and looks really natural on.
Shadows wise, I am sure this won’t be a surprise at all to see Solstice Halcyon (review and swatches) yet again because I simply adore that eye shadow, and also Kiko’s Water Eye shadow in 202 which is a gorgeous brownish purple with golden shimmer, this beauty deserves a feature, so stay tuned.
For some reason, lately I haven’t been that much into red and berry lips, so it was about rosewood Clarins which I promise to post about soon, as it is a perfect nude, if you ask me, and L’Oreal Glam Shine in Dazzle 201 Sparkle Shower (review and lip swatches) which gives that oh-so-pretty sparkle in the sun and feels amazing on the lips.

I can’t believe that it’s July already! June was a very difficult and busy month, and I am very happy that it’s finally over!
I did not really have time or desire, to be honest, to experiment with makeup, but I did wear different lipsticks all the time. Since the drawer with my personal lip products is overflowing – I’ve made an effort to use them more often.
Besides that, makeup-wise this month was all about the red nail polish. And my current favourite one is Max Factor Glossfinity Nail Polish in 85 Cerise (here). It is perfect long-lasting glossy orangey red. I promise to post the swatches soon, as I think everyone should pick up a bottle for summer.
Speaking of Max Factor, I am back to using their award-winning Masterpiece Transform High Impact Volumising Mascara (review). It is phenomenal, and I mean it – it gives show-stopping voluminous ultra-black lashes. Some of my girlfriends are now obsessed, too. And I will be buying a second tube soon.
I’m also back to using BECCA’s Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl (review). The lack ofRead More
This month “Beauty Favourites” will be a little bit different, it will be more about the [makeup] products that I have been using on my face.
May was a very busy month for me, and I was always in a rush, so often I had to do my makeup on the go, so I had a makeup bag with the products always ready. The products have been more or less the same throughout the month, so let’s take a look:
Ella Bache Tomato Vitamin Radiance Cream (as seen on my Instagram)
I’ve bought it after someone highly recommended it to me, and so far I really love it, it really adds glow and radiance to your complexion, even if you had less than 5 hours of sleep.
Peter Thomas Roth CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Complexion Corrector (review)
This is an excellent product which combines great coverage and SPF factor but still feels light on the skin. One of my favourites for summer, the mini size is also great for carrying around.
NYX Blush in Taupe (review)
The photo speaks for itself. I amRead More
If you follow me on Instagram, you have already seen this photo of Rouge Bunny Rouge products that I was sent some time ago. And I want to start the series of reviews with the matte eye shadows, as the brand’s eye shadows have a cult status already, and a lot of you often ask me about them.
I actually already have a shade in Blackpepper Jay, and here are:
- SWEET DUST SERIEMA, “semi-opaque cool dusty mauve taupe”
- BASHFUL FLAMINGO, “semi-opaque pale powder-pink, looking ultra natural and fresh on the eye”
Bashful Flamingo is a great under-the brow highlighter to make your eye brows more groomed and defined, it is also a great shade to be used all over the lid to even out the skin tone. It works as a perfect “base” for other shades.
Sweet Dust Seriema is aRead More
Can you believe that it is MAY already? Where did 2015 go? Maybe that is because I am crazy busy these days that I don’t notice anything around me, who knows…
But back to April Beauty Favourites. I did not have that many makeup favourites, and did not want to mention the same products over, and over again – so here are 3 hero products that I have been using every single day when I did my makeup ( I was sick for a week in April which was horrible), and some new beauty loves…
Photo is from my Instagram
The three makeup heroes I’ve mentioned are: Rouge Bunny Rouge Raven Glaze Lacquer Liner (review and swatches), Max Factor Glamour Extensions 3-in-1 Volumising Mascara (review), Bobbi Brown Natural Brow Shaper & Hair Touch Up in Slate (review). I haven’t been experimenting with eye makeup that much this month, and these are the products that just work. Eye brow gel to tint my eye brows and keep them in place, ultra black liner for that feline flick and mascara for thick and long lashes.
There are also three products that I’ve mentioned in my Spring Beauty Guide: Balance Me Radiance Rose Face Oil and Aromatherapy Associates Hydrating Rose Radiance Skin Serum for thatRead More
