Today my post is about the products, videos and makeup looks that caught my attention this week.
For the last several days I have been browsing US beauty websites like a mad woman to figure out what products I need/want to get as my friend kindly agreed to get me some.
I am not going to post my whole wish list or everything that caught my attention but here is the new Cle de Peau Vintage Holiday Palette which some of you may like. But as it is CdP the price is not cheap – $125.
It’s a makeup from Gucci by Pat McGrath. And of course, I am waiting for Dior show…
Believe it or not, but it actually took me hours and hours to complete this list, as I had to think carefully about what products I really want or what products I actually need.
This is not really a wish list, but more of a shopping list of the products that I plan to buy in the near future. Of course, I could add more, but I’ve decided to be very strict with myself so every item got on the list after a lot of consideration and is very covetable…
So here is the list!
1. Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Soft Brunette, £26
I have almost finished my Benefit eye pencil and I am definitely getting an Hourglass one next.
2. Matte Eye Shadows Palette
I can’t decide if I should get the Too Faced Matte Eye Shadow Collection (£24.57 from Beauty Bay) or theBalm Meet Matte ($42 from the brand’s website, but they are in the process of creating a European shop, as well). I actually really love the eye shadow quality from both brands: Too Faced Natural Eye Palette Review and Swatches, theBalm Nude Tude Eye Shadows Palette Review and Swatches and the Balm Shady Lady Palette Vol.2 Review and Swatches so that’s a hard one. I only wish Too Faced palette weren’t so bulky. Maybe I should get both?!
3. Cream Blusher
That is probably the last thing that I need, considering how many I have but I’ve decided that I can get one, as a treat for myself. After a lot of consideration, I’ve chosen Stila’s Stila Convertible Colour (I actually can’t believe that I still haven’t tried it!) I think I’ll get Rose or Lillium (£15.12 from Beauty Bay)
Now this is the category of the products that I need. There are a lot of skincare products that I want and the list is endless but these
As cliché as it sounds, can you believe that it is 2016 already? Did you set any professional and personal goals for the new year? Are you excited for the new beginnings?
I like looking back analysing my accomplishments and making plans/ dreaming about the future. So, I was curious to see what were some of the most viewed posts of 2015 and share with you, in cased you’ve missed them.
Here we go:
This week I went a bit crazy pinning food inspiration photos/recipes on my Pinterest Food board. I’ve also tried to spend more time cooking (and reading) during my free time because I find it to be relaxing and even calming.
Here is one of the salads that I made this week. Finally I did not forget to take a photo.
I usually share my makeup wish lists but, to tell the truth, I don’t need anything makeup related right now and there are not that many things that I actually want. This is why I’ve decided to share my beauty wish list.
It took me hours to complete this list as every product was carefully chosen. Maybe this will inspire you to make your own wish list or to add the products I have to your own.
Now this is a very expensive toner but I’ve heard a lot of people singing praises to it. After reading all the reviews and asking some people their opinion, I am ready to splurge.
The formula of the Mist is based on the Queen of Hungary water which is the first perfume on record. It contains apple pectin, Hungarian thermal water, orange blossom, rose and sage waters. The Mist should purify and tone, restore hydration and leave you feeling refreshed and energized.
I was supposed to spend half of the month in Hungary but one thing went wrong in the very last minute so this will be a perfect little treat for myself.
If this product really does what it says (and according to numerous reviews I’ve read – it does) I want it NOW!
The Fluide is described as a “deep emollient light refracting hair care for damaged, coloured, highlighted or sensitised hair. Kérastase Reflection Fluide Chroma Riche is a luminous softening essence that delivers mirror-like radiance to your hair.” It also has UV filters. And this is not all actually!
I also want a new Kerastase Shampoo, so that’s around £13.
3. Xen-Tan Deep Bronze Luxe Once A Week Self Tan (236Ml) and Xen-Tan Luxury Tanning Mitt, together £33
I’ve chosen this particular self-tanner based on numerous raves and great reviews. It is promised that the tan will last for seven days!
