It’s monthly favourites time!
This month it was all about beautiful skin for me. The mix of Elemis Pro-Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm (review) and Clarins HydraQuench Tinted Moisturizer (review and swatches) was my dream combo. It made the skin smooth, radiant and youthful. And I mean it. I guess the fact that recently several (!) people thought that I am 19-20 speaks for itself. Plus you could definitely see the “real skin” underneath, no cakey thick masks which are even worse than bad skin tone itself, in my opinion.
Since I wanted to keep things on the light-to-medium side -YSL Touche Eclat (review and swatches) was my best friend, as well. For me it is a perfect light reflecting product for under the eye area, you get great, long-lasting results, also Touche Eclat doesn’t enhance the under eye lines.
August was definitely the month ofRead More
Remember I did a post about foundations?
Since a lot of you asked for more details, here is the official information about some of them:
Tom Ford Traceless Perfecting Foundation SPF 15, $80
“The Traceless Perfection Foundation is a natural-finish, longwearing, humidity-resistant foundation that hydrates and evens your skin tone, creating a flawless, supple, poreless canvas with medium-to-full coverage. Its formula includes the nourishing Tom Ford Infusing Complex to help smooth and renew skin while helping diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.”
Cle de Peau Radiant Fluid Foundation SPF 24, $125
“Radiant Fluid Foundation is a liquid foundation with added SPF 24 sun protection that gives your skin a dewy, lustrous finish and creates a glowing veil of beauty, revealing vibrant luminosity that transcends the natural look of skin. It contains the Illuminating Complex, which is a powerful moisture-stabilizing force that promotes exquisite radiance. The foundation also resists dullness, wear and changes in color throughout the day to help you retain a beautiful, smooth finish.”

Summer is like the best season to pick up 5 colours coral/orange shades, right? So here we go…
YSL 4 Audacious Orange (review and swatches)
It is my personal favourite true orange. It is like a sunshine in a jar, instantly brightens the face and I love the fact that you it doesn’t have reddish/pinkish undertones, it is a true orange. The texture is cream-to-powder and blends nicely into the skin. Plus this also wins for the most luxurious packaging.
Jouer Petal (review and swatches)
I have to admit that I did not like this cheeks and lips tint that much at first, but now I do. Although it is described as soft rose pink on the official website, I still decided to include it in this selection. Maybe because it’s like a soft peachy pink to me. The texture is sheer and not heavy.
Available from Cult Beauty.

If you are curious about all the upcoming AW 2014 makeup collections, here is a first post with the preview. And this time it’s YSL and Chanel.
Wow, look at the YSL’s makeup collection for Autumn. It is called Leather Fetish…
I am loving the promo image with Cara. Those fuchsia matte lips rock. The Fetish palette, which is black leather and gold logo, also looks amazing on the promo, plus you can never have to many basic shades like browns and greys.
The products on the photo are: Fetish Palette, La Laque Couture Leather 53 Taupe Graine and 52 Bleu Galuchat, Rouge Pur Couture 208 Fuchsia Fetish and Gloss Volupte 106.
