SS19 Mini Trend: Lip and Cheek 2-in-1 Products

I have noticed that a few really cool brands launched lip and cheek products, so here is a preview. And while I have only tried one product from Milk so far, I am a big fan of Trish and RBR, as regular readers will know.

Summer Must Have: Shimmer Body Oils. 2019 Edition

I am a huge fan of shimmer body oils for summer and have been for a while.  Why? Simply because they make your skin look polished. And don’t worry, you will not end up looking like a greasy disco ball,  shimmer oil for your body is like highlighter for your face. It just makes everything look dewy and glowing, in a good way. Not to mention that it’s not only a visual effect, as the  ingredients in your oil will moisturise, soften and smooth the skin.

While I still remain a huge fan of Omorovicza, you don’t have to spend €70 on it, while it is worth it, in my opinion. So here are three body shimmer oils which caught my attention this summer.

One is brand new, one was around for some time, and the third one just got some new LE shades. Let’s take a look.

SOL DE JANEIRO Glowmotions, £35/ $35 (75ml ) from Cult Beauty and Sephora.

I really loved the Bum Bum cream so would expect these to be incredible, as well.  There are

SS19 Bright Eye Shadow Palettes: Lorac, Jouer, Anastasia

Bright eye shadows are a real  trend this summer, I have already featured L’Oreal and Viseart but there are many, many more. I’ve decided to mention 3 palettes which I personally like the most. And I like the look of them. I have not tried these particular palettes but I do have other palettes from these three brands, and love them. So here is hoping these are great, too.

ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS Alyssa Edwards Eyeshadow Palette £46 Cult Beauty $45 Sephora

I am including this because I am obsessed with Norvina palette which I have. While I did not know who Alyssa Edwards was (RuPaul’s Drag  Race contestant) I love the combination of bold and neutral shades.

Want It: A England British Subcultures Nail Varnish Collection

A England is one of a kind brand, not only their nail polishes are ridiculously gorgeous but the stories behind them are fascinating.  It was a pleasure to interview the founder Adina (read it here) a while ago, and I am always looking forward to the new releases.

And this time the brand outdone itself, in my opinion, the new British Subcultures collection makes my heart beat faster. I found it mind blowing how Adina managed to  visualise a certain subculture with a colour, this is pure art, I am telling you.

Above you can see Goth shade, and here is what is posted on the brand’s Facebook about it: “GOTH  one of my best-loved among the British Subcultures. The goth subculture began in England during the early 1980s. This mostly aesthetic subculture includes dark attire (often black) and is marked by an antiquated style that is

SS19 Eye Shadows: Dior, Viseart, Givenchy, theBalm, L’Oreal

I did write about the bronzers and some new lip products that caught my attention this month, so let’s take a look at the eye shadows.  By the way, I often post previews over at  Makeup4all Facebook page, so you may want to give it a like.
