Christmas 2017: Reddish Eye Shadows Palettes

Reddish eye makeup is really in! Remember the absolutely gorgeous red makeup collection from Chanel? And Heat Naked Urban Decay palette?

Now, there are so many palettes to choose from, and here are just a few:

Dior Ruby 5-Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette,  857 in Ruby, $63 from  Naiman Marcus

Five shades which will be a perfect choice for those who are not a big fan of bulky palettes, and you get everything you need to create a look.

theBalm Nude Beach Eyeshadow Palette, $36 from Amazon and Feel Unique

theBalm eye shadows are some of the best, so I am sure this palette is incredible.

HUDA BEAUTY Desert Dusk Eyeshadow Palette, $65 from Sephora

August 2017 Beauty Favourites

Here we are again, talking about the monthly favourites!

Beauty

Dove Nourishing Secrets Relaxing Ritual Shower Gel (Dove is available from Amazon and Amazon UK)

This shower product  with lavender and rosemary extract is pretty similar to L’Occitane Aromachologie Relaxing Shower Gel but just for a fraction of the price. It smells incredible, and does not feel drying on the skin. Being a huge lavender fan, I had to have it. Especially I loved using it during my holidays this month, very relaxing.

Nivea Intimo Wash Lotion Fresh

Had to get this mini while I was away on a holiday, as well, as I forgot mine, and it just reminded me how important a right gel for the intimate hygiene is. This Nivea one is gentle yet effective.

Jo Malone Colognes (You can buy Jo Malone from Selfridges,  Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom.)

I am really into my Jo Malone colognes these days, especially the mini ones, they smell so incredible. I love mixing and matching them, too. I need new scents from the brand now.

July 2017 Beauty Favourites

It feels like I am starting every monthly favourites with this. But how is it August already, the 8th month of the year? Where did 2017 go?

All that aside, here is a list of the things I have been loving in July, and please keep in mind that I am still loving/using all the products from the previous months, but I just want to mention the ones I haven’t mentioned before.

Makeup

theBalm  Balm Desert  (buy from  ASOSFeel Unique and Sephora.).

I have only discovered this product in July but I think this will be a new long-time favourite. There is no need to say that the formula is amazing, it always is when it comes to this brand. But what is so special about it then? It is the  shade which is perfect. Bronzer/Blush is a great description, as it is not your typical bronzer, it has a reddish undertone to it. When I first saw Balm Desert, it made me think of Dallas by Benefit but they are not the same at all.  Anyway, this products is great for adding colour to your face, and for gently sculpting it, too.

From top to bottom: Dallas by Benefit, theBalm Balm Desert , theBalm Betty-Lou Manizer.

theBalm Meet Matt(e) Trimony Matte Eyeshadow Palette Review and Swatches

In my April beauty favourites I promised to swatch theBalm’s Meet Matt(e) Trimony Matte Eyeshadow Palette. I actually really like theBalm eye shadows (nude Tude and Shady Lady Palette Vol.2 , and this one was not an exception.

My friend was actually clearing out her collection, and passed this onto me.  While not all shades look good on my complexion, some of them I adore, and use a lot. My personal favourites are: Matt Rossi (cool toned taupe) and Matt Kumar (warm-toned reddish brown).

As it is always with theBalm eye shadows they are very smooth and soft, their mattes are some of the best on the market, they are not at all chalky or dusty, you can see how pigmented they are, too, on the swatches below. Gorgeous, right?

One more thing which I really like is a huge mirror which is brilliant for

SS17 Eye Shadows: Trish McEvoy, Bobbi Brown, theBalm, Rouge Bunny Rouge, Dior

As usual, I have selected the coolest new makeup launches, this time it is all about the eyes: eye gloss from Bobbi Brown, new version of Dior quints, nude everyday palette from Trish McEvoy and new variations of Rouge Bunny Rouge and theBalm already cult palettes.

Bobbi Brown Eye Gloss, £19.50 from Harvey Nichols and $28 from Barneys

Gorgeous palette of everyday nude eye shadows and definers, they come in matte and glittery shades.
