Hello, October! It’s time for September favourites, and last month I’ve discovered some absolutely amazing products which I am excited to tell you about.
My favourite base combo in September (and not only in September): Clarins Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base in 01 Rose (review and swatches) and Clarins HydraQuench Tinted Moisturizer (review and swatches), decanted. I have written very detailed reviews about both products so you are welcome to take a look. But if I had to sum up – I’d say that both items work incredibly well to add that glow/sheen back in the skin. You look just fine when in reality you are ridiculously exhausted and can only dream about getting some sleep. I recommend for dry skin especially.
I really love my Inglot Sculpting HD Powder in 504 (review and swatches), as you can see from the photo above. It creates that perfect and natural shade. Works even on the pale complexions and doesn’t look muddy, the formula is soft and smooth, and blends easily.
If I had to choose only one favourite product this month – that’d have to beRead More

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.
Clarins Blush & Bronzing Compact (review and swatches) it isRead More
