I haven’t booked my summer holiday yet but Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman already have some products from the YSL’s makeup collection available already. And, like it or not, soon we will see all of the releases in stock. Hello, Autumn?
But it has always been like this in the beauty world, so there is nothing to complain about. And, to be honest, Autumn collections are my favourite: rich browns for the eyes and luscious berries & plums for the lips!
This collection is called Scandal which is a tribute to the YSL’s most-known collection, it celebrates audacity and edgy femininity.
Some of the products are:
Scandal Collection Couture Palette Collector ($60)
Sheathed in dark green leather and laser cut with a satin YSL Cassandra includes rich shades of olive green, shimmering burgundy, golden bronze, and
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

These are promised to be glossy and hydrating, with the innovative applicator which helps with a flawless application.
Sisley Phyto Lip Twist, £29

Brand new lipsticks from Estee Lauder offer high-intensity colour-in one stroke. We should be
Here is the list of top three super
expensive luxurious beauty gifts for this holiday season. I don’t think I could ever buy any of those, so this is purely for “entertainment”, at least for me.
Shu Uemura Karl Lagerfeld for Shu Uemura Ruby Eyelashes , £900
Yes, they have real rubies on them…
There is also a Tom Ford Vanity Case, £1,000.00. Looks properly luxurious but not sure that
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 of
I really love reading (or watching) about people’s top favourite beauty products, as this is a great way to discover new gems. I have posted 15 favourite makeup products of 2015 so now it is time to post about my most loved makeup products in 2016.
Unfortunately, four products (Dior lipstick , Illamasqua nail varnish, Clarins bronzer and eye shadows) that I absolutely adored and used non-stop this year are no longer available so I will have to mention only those items that you can still get.
Rouge Bunny Rouge Serene Light Skin Perfector
This was pretty much the only base product I have been using ever since I received it several months ago. I still haven’t written a proper feature as I really wanted to give it a good test before that. The product definitely stands up to the “Skin Perfector” name, as it makes the complexion glow without looking too shiny or oily. I also rarely use anything on top since it is a bit tinted. Not that I have a perfect skin but this is enough for me, I only use concealer where needed.
Clarins HydraQuench Tinted Moisturizer (review and swatches)
This product does not need an introduction. I’ve completely used it up, hence I had to use a different Clarins product for the reference purpose. It is like a dry skin’s best friend, this tinted moisturizer never makes your skin look flaky and never accentuates the dry patches. Instead, the skin looks somehow “healthy” and radiant. Love!
Rouge Bunny Rouge Glide Concealer NAKED DISGUISE (review and swatches)
Regular readers will probably know that I barely ever use concealer because I don’t really mind a bit of dark-ish circles, as horrible as it sounds. But I personally hate the perfectly concealed under-eye area on myself. I also almost never get spots, so no need for the concealer in any other places. However, I do really like this product, as it makes the under eye area look better but without making you look like a mannequin.
Inglot Sculpting HD Powder in 504 (review)
As you can see from the photo above, this product is very well loved. Perfect shade for light cool-toned complexions, and the formula is incredibly soft and easy to blend, too.
Daniel Sandler Rose Glow and Golden Glow Watercolour Blushes (review and swatches).
I have spoken about my love for the Daniel Sandler blushers numerous times but, I think, this year he really killed it. The two newest shades are to die for, and although I haven’t been wearing blush that much in 2016, I’ve been reaching for these most of the times I have. Watercolours give you the “blushing from within” kind of effect, a must try. If you are a bit scared of the liquid, which you shouldn’t be, Daniel also has cream blushes now.
