Regular readers know that I am a hand cream fanatic, and I have written so many features on the ones I like during these seven years. The latest post was on Aveeno and Neal’s Yard Remedies, along with cheaper alternatives from Nivea and Garnier. Here is also a selection of my top 5 hand creams (which probably should be revisited).
And here are my latest discoveries…
& Other Stories Couture Carnival Hand Lotion
I am so in love with this lotion that I have bought two bottles! The beautiful minimalistic Scandinavian design, the convenient pump, the light and non-greasy but, at the same time, moisturizing texture. And the smell. Oh, the smell of it!
I mean, you can’t go wrong with with something described as “rainbowRead More
Max Factor Glossfinity nail polish in 85 Cerise was an impulse purchase but I love it so much that I recently bought a second bottle, as I’ve used up the first one. And that says a lot, considering how many nail polishes I have, and red ones in particular.
It is a gorgeous glossy warm toned red which looks opaque even with one coat. It is like the coolest accessory for your nails, it brightens up everything. As dramatic as it sounds – Cerise makes me feel incredible, and I never want to be without it.
I have mentioned it so many times but somehow never posted a proper swatch, so here it is. (I am also wearing it here)
As I’ve already said, it looks great even with one coat, this formulaRead More
Since I use eye liner almost on a daily basis, I have very high demands for it. I have been using Rouge Bunny Rouge for years, until they’ve changed the nib. After considering different options: reading reviews and swatching in stores – I’ve decided to try ArtDeco Long Lasting Liquid Liner.
I like this German brand a lot, their products are always high quality and are not expensive.
And this liner is absolutely brilliant! I have been using it since February non-stop, it was even in my monthly favourites, and want to share my impression. Easy to use, this is the exact nib I was looking for, I personally don’t like those ultra thin ones. The colour is ultra black and intense. The formula is great, it glides on like a dream without dragging the skin.Read More
Writing beauty features gives the opportunity to try and share about a lot of things you wouldn’t otherwise, and it is great. For example, I was sent some hair extensions for a review. And it was a really cool experience considering I’ve never tried extensions before.
The ones I have are called Irresistible Me, which are a 100% remy human hair clip ins. I went for the Chocolate Brown (see all shades here) which is the closest to my natural hair colour. You can also choose the length and the weight. And I’ve chosen the 200 g x 20 inches option.
So here is the before and after, so you can see for yourself. Yes, I am wearing glasses at home. Regular readers will know how I hate posting photos of myself on the Internet.
Before reviewing the hair in particular, I have to mention that it comes in a really cool black box with some sweet girly writings on it. And it is all about those little things.
As for the extensions – you get:Read More
Regular readers know that I am a big fan of Daniel Sandler blushers, they are so unique with that one-of-a-kind liquid formula. I have written so many times about them, and here is a link to a very detailed review with the tips from Daniel himself. I also wrote about the cream formula, too.
I like that Daniel doesn’t bring out tonnes of products but when he does – they are awesome. This month he added two new shades of the liquid Watercolours and one cream version to his line, and they all are dreamy.
You can choose from Rose Glow ( a pastel pink-peach shimmer) and Golden Glow (warm bronze shimmer); the cream shade is Soft Bronze (a delicate pink-peach hybrid with a twist of a bronze). And they are honestly my favourite shades from Daniel so far, and I have quite a collection at this point.
All three shades give that healthy glowing effect whichRead More
