I have already mentioned the I am very pro-toner! And, although, skincare is something that I personally don’t mind investing in, I perfectly understand that not everyone wants/can.
This is why I have been on a mission to find good toners that won’t break the bank. I have already featured one of them from Yves Rocher.
And today I’d like to share about my other discovery – Lumene Soft Touch Hydrating Toner.
As the name suggests, this product is soft and hydrating, it is not a plain liquid, it is like a mix between toner and a lotion, in my opinion. It feels gentle on the skin, and I can tell that it definitely is not just “another” step in the routine. It does make aRead More
Recently I have posted about the top three affordable new makeup launches that caught my attention. And Max Factor actually kindly sent me their new eye shadows to try out.
They have already made an appearance on my Instagram, and now it’s time for a detailed review.
And, let me tell you, these eye shadows are absolutely brilliant! I was a bit worried that with the name Excess Shimmer it could be an overkill (not a fan of too much glitter), but it is not – spot on, in fact!
The brand describes the texture as “3D silicone gel”, and it does feel like a light mousse-y gel texture (the only similar product that I have, is my favourite cream eye shadow by New CID) which is foolproof.
You can even use the product with your finger and gently blend all over the lid. The formula is pretty unique, you can sheer it out, or add layers for a more intense effect.
As for the look, yes it is quite shimmery, but it looks pretty! It never is flat, but instead, gives dimension, and reflects the light beautifully.

Have you got colour in your cheeks? Yes, that is Arctic Monkeys “Do I Wanna Know?” (listen )
This song actually inspired me to write about my current favourite cheek products. But, and this will be a shock for regular readers, I have been neglecting blushes lately. Yes, really.
And here are the two products that I have been using religiously lately…
Trish’s bronzer is probably my favourite out of all that I own. It is not too dark, too orange/muddy/shimmery/you name it. It warms up the complexion, and adds just the right amount of glow thanks to the delicate shimmer. Golden Bronzer looks amazing even on my light skin tone. Moreover, it is very finely milled, so blends beautifully and looks natural. Brilliant product. Maybe this will be the first ever bronzer that I use up?Read More
I love red lipstick, I really do. I often wear red, and I have converted some of my close girlfriends to red, too. In fact most of them tried it for the first time because I made them. I literally put it on their lips, ha!
This is why I’ve decided to look back at some the post about red lips that I wrote in the past and share them with you!

This was one of my favourite posts to write! My readers’ husbands and boyfriends shared their true opinion about the red lip. Care to share what your Mr. thinks?

I am painting my nails at least twice per week. I find that nice manicure not only never fails to improve my mood but also somehow increases my productivity. How can you not be productive with red nail polish on?
But there is one product that I often neglected in the past – base coats. A good base coat should make your nail polish last longer, protect the nails from staining, make them smoother, which would make the nail polish application easier, and maybe even strengthen them.
However, I wasn’t pleased with any base coats I have tried in the past, they took forever to dry which made the whole process longer, andRead More
