I honestly can’t believe that it is September next week, it seems like it was June only yesterday. But this was an absolutely amazing month, and here are the beauty products that really stood out to me.
Clarins Joli Rouge Lipstick in 738 Royal Plum (review and swatches)
Clarins revamped their Joli Rouge line (as seen here), and now it looks even more chic, and the formula feels even more comfortable. Royal Plum is the shade to die for, it is a must have for Autumn! I have to confess that oxblood was the colour of the month for me. Max Factor Glossfinity Nail polish in 185 Ruby Fruit was the shade I wore on my toes all monthRead More
August is the month when I always go on a holiday, and now I am back and
not ready to get back to life. This year I was very proud of myself for not over-packing or taking any extra products.
Here is the makeup I had with me for two weeks, and I could actually take even less lip products, everything else I have used religiously. If I had to pick 3 products I’ve used/loved the most that would be:
YSL Faux Cils Mascara – it is absolutely incredible, the best mascara ever.
Revlon Colorstay Liquid Eye Pen – most of the days I love my cat eye, and this happen to be the liner I am using now, I really love the shape of the nib which is incredibly easy to use.

I am sorry that there were no updates for several days, work and life in general just got too busy, but I am back with yet another selection of the new products for lips, eyes and face that caught my attention. This time it is all about Illamasqua, Marc Jacobs and YSL.
