There are quite a few new lip products for Spring 2014. And there is nothing like a new lipstick (or a gloss), right? Especially with the VDay just around the corner. For some reason I am excited about it this year, whhaaaat?!
Here are just some of them:
YSL Gloss Volupte 2014, £21
Available in 24 shades, the one shown is 19 Rose Orferve
These are promised to be glossy and hydrating, with the innovative applicator which helps with a flawless application.
Sisley Phyto Lip Twist, £29
Available in 6 shades, the one shown is Baby.
Described as a tinted balm with the colour of a lipstick and shine of a gloss, it leaves the lips supple and smooth thanks to the plant-based active ingredients.
Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick, £24
Available in 20 shades, the one shown is Tumultuous.
Brand new lipsticks from Estee Lauder offer high-intensity colour-in one stroke. We should beRead More
Pink is the colour for Spring 2014, a lot of beauty brands have at least one rose-tinted product in their seasonal release. And it’s not a surprise, what other shade can perk up your complexion and make it look fresh and youthful?
Even the promo photos of the leading luxury beauty brands [YSL, Givenchy, Lancome, Burberry, Dior, Guerlain] give us an inspiration on how to wear pink, which is always feminine and classy. And with all the variations of this prettiness, colour and texture wise, every girl, no matter what age and skin tone, can find a suitable product.
Here are some of the products you can choose from:
Clarins Multi-Blush Cream Blush in 02 Candy, Lancome Blush Highlighter, Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush inRead More
So here we go…
I will start with the eye brows, and my favorite and most-used product, hands down, was Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Soft Brunette (review). It is a must have for me now, easy to use, long-lasting and great shade.
As for the liners – it was super easy to choose: Rouge Bunny Rouge Raven Glaze Lacquer Liner (review), black and glossy liner is in my personal top favourites ever. When I am in the mood for the cat eye, this is the product I always use. Plus it’s so easy to control.
For an every day use, and I’m sure this is no surprise to you, I always use Lancome’s Le Crayon Khol in Brun Noir (review). I have so many eye pencils, but 99% of the time I use this one. It’s a perfect blackened brown which is very soft and easy to blend, dreamy.
When it comes to mascaras, I have two favourites, as well. One in a classic black shade, which is Chanel Le Volume de Chanel Mascara in 10 Noir (review), easily one of the best mascaras I have ever tried, ultra black and mega volumizing. I have a small sample but am buying a full size.
I also want to mention a colourful mascara - Rouge Bunny Rouge Dramatic Lash Mascara Megaplumes in Oxblood Panache (review). It is an innovative shade which looks beautiful on the lashes, what you is is what you get.
And, of course, I have to mention Anastasia’s Genius Top Coat (review) which changed my beauty life.
There are so many great eye shadows that I couldRead More
Finally I am writing about my 2013 favouries. You can read about my 2012 makeup favourites here.
But there are quite a few products that I want to mention, so I’ve decided to divide it into several posts, not to make it too long.
So the first part is about makeup products for the face. And I did not want to include a product in each category, but wanted to mention the products that stood out to me.
The last thing that I have to mention - I have dry sensitive skin, and the age group is 25-30.
Clarins BB Skin Perfecting Cream SPF 25 (review)
This was the BB cream of the year for me. The base that I wore almost all the summer, it was a great match for my tanned skin. It feels light on the skin and gives a medium coverage, plus smells really nice.
Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer (review)
At first I wasn’t a huge fan of this product, but now I use it whenever my skin needs some glow and luminosity, and there is no need for the highlighter. It gives a very good coverage for a TM, I personally don’t even need a concealer.
BECCA Luminous Skin Colour Ultra-Sheer Foundation SPF 25+ (review)
This is a discovery of the year. This foundation gives a very light coverage and has an almost fluid texture, so suitable for the days when your skin looks nice but you want to even out the complexion.

If I could keep only one “base” – this would be it. It’s myRead More
