Regular readers will know that I am a huge fan of Clarins lip products and baby pink is my “nude”. This is why I’ve decided to share my top 3 Clarins pink lip products that are my personal must haves.
I did a detailed review of each so I won’t say a lot this time but will just mention that all three are phenomenal, they all are like a mix of lip treatment and a beautiful colour glosses. Smell amazing and feel nice when applied. It only depends on the applicator and the effect that you want on your lips:

Regular readers know that I am not a big powder user ( I have a lot of different powders in my kit; but this is the only one that I use on myself). But even I, with my very dry skin, like some powder on a hot and humid day. To a)make my makeup last longer b)mattify my T-zone a bit.
This is why today I want to tell you about my personal favourite powder which is Rouge Bunny Rouge Flawless Face Powder Precious Velvet.
I’ve had it for 2 years now, so I am not sure why it took me so long to write about it…
Why do I like it?
- It doesn’t enhance the dry patches on the skin that I may have and doesn’t dry out my skin.
- I don’t feel this powder on my face, it is very lightweight.
- The brand says that it melds with the skin, and I totally agree. It is not visible at all. You just get a perfected and flawless finish.
- I like the effect Precious Velvet gives, it mattifyes but doesn’t make your face look flat and life-less, you skin shows through.
- For me personally, the effect lasts all day, but if you very have oily skin, you may need a special matte powders. I haven’t tried it on anyone with such skintype so can’t make any comments. But on girls with normal skin it worked amazing, as well.
- As for the main ingredients, Rouge Bunny Rouge list the following: “Papaya Fruit Extract as a natural “face lift” and skin softener, plus Hyssop Extract with soothing properties. Rice Powder imparts a perfectly natural, non-shiny finish. “
I love a good body scrub! I always have at least three different options on my bathroom shelve. And today I’d like to show you the one that I’ve been really loving this hot summer season. It is Weleda’s Birch Body Scrub.
Why do I like this scrub so much? Mostly because of the scent, the brand says it is birch leaf extract and essential oils (rosemary?). And I’d say that it has an uplifting and invigorating aroma, fresh and clean scent – very unisex. I don’t know what it is, but it is one of my favourites; the kind of fragrance that makes you want toRead More
It took me some time to realize that eye brows are very important. I did over-pluck mine, like a lot of people back in the 90′s, but luckily they grew back! Plus I never really did anything with them…
This Tuesday I went out with only one makeup product on my face – eye brow pencil (I’ve also curled my lashes), and I was happy with the way I looked. In fact, when I was visiting my family this is the look I’d rock most of the days. They say eyebrows frame the face; and the is spot on! I personally think good brows make a huge difference.
This is why I though I’d share some of the products that I love using on my myself, and on others.
Shavata Double Ended Eyebrow Pencil (review and swatches)
I have to start with a product that is probably my personal favourite! I always sharpen it really well so that it creates a precise line which never looks drawn in; but I never drag it on and do small strokes to feel in any gaps and make to brows more defined. This shade really suits my cool-toned brows, the texture is soft and it stays on for the whole day. It is a total winner, and I highly recommend.

As you already know, there are tonnes of new foundations coming out our way for AW season, so I thought I’d share about my personal new love, base-wise. Buxom Show Some Skin Weightless Foundation.
I’ve got a sample with a Sephora purchase several months ago, and totally forgot about it, until recently when I threw in some samples to try while I was visiting my family.
Before I start, I have to mention that now I have a tan (plus fake tan on top to make my skin even more “sun kissed”), and I really love experimenting with my makeup, as I can now wear different shades and colours, which usually don’t suit my skin tone.
The shade that I have is the fifth (out of ten) in the line which is Meet Me Latte ( described as “neutral beige for medium skin tones”) which is still a bit dark for me but I can make it work.
Now, the foundation is absolutely amazing! As the name suggests, it is weightless, I don’t feel it on the face, at all. It is like a hydrating tinted moisturizer. I also like that it lasts all day on me, doesn’t melt or look greasy, and I have tested it in very hot climate. But please keep in mind that I have very dry skin.
My second favourite thing is the fact that you get some serious glow! It is not shiny or glittery, but just aRead More
