Nails Of The Day: CND Vinylux in Cityscape

It feels like I haven’t  posted  Nails Of The Day feature in ages. The reason?  I have been wearing shellac for months, but I did feature some shades on my Instagram.

But it feels good to  post a good ol’ classic, if you wish, post.  It actually brings a lot of memories. I remember how my male friends were reading these features  on Makeup4all out loud and found it absolutely hilarious that I would spend my time taking photos of my manicure an put it on-line. Oh well…

Nails Of The Day CND Vinylux in Cityscape

But back to the nail polish in question which is Vinylux by CND. It is supposed to last for the whole week, and it does have a very impressive staying power. I have actually featured a black shade some time ago.

As for Cityscape it is a

Lancome Hypnose Mascara Review. Rave

I like to try new products but there are some products that you always come back to! One of such products for me is Hypnose mascara by Lancome. In my opinion this is one of the best mascaras on the market!

Why You May Like It

  • This mascara gives the most amazing volume, it really changes the way your lashes look.
  • I personally really like the elegant design of the tube and the brush.
  • You can see great results even after the first coat but if you put one 2-3 coats the results are very impressive.
  • This mascara  will change the way even short and thin lashes look.
  • I’d say that it

Current Beauty Favourites

Last time I wrote about my favourites was in February so it is time a for an update.

I’ve collected some of the things I have been loving the most in the last several months, so since there are quite a few items I’ve divided this feature in two parts, and we’ll start with beauty.

Omorovicza Rose Lifting Serum and Illuminating Moisturiser from   Cult BeautyNet a Porter, Neiman MarcusNordstrom.

I am a huge fan of the brand, and their products really work for me. While they are quite expensive, I think it is worth the investment, as you only have one face, and you can definitely see the difference with Omorovicza. I have been using both products since March and the serum is practically gone, while there is still at least half of the bottle of the cream. I have dry and sensitive skin, and I am in my early 30s, and I can tell that the skin is smooth and glowing (there is an instant effect straight after the application), it also helped battling the tight, grey and flaky post-winter skin. On top of it, I personally love the scent, sensation and the design. And, yes, when you are paying this much every detail matters. I am now eyeing one of their cleansers. By the way, I have also been loving this cream skincare wise a lot in the last several months.

Speaking of cleansers,  I’ve almost used up Darphin Aromatic Cleansing Balm  (from Look Fantastic, Nordstrom, House Of Fraser) which is a cult product in the industry already. And let me tell you – rightly so. First of all, as the name suggests, it smells absolutely incredible, there is something soothing and relaxing about using it at the end of the day, it is like a well deserved “me time”. I also love the cleansing properties and how soft it makes my skin feel. While I never remove my eye makeup with this type of cleansers, I find that it does the job of removing face makeup really well, and it is a great product for a facial massage. In fact, in April we had some quality time with my girlfriends and we were all doing a 20 minute facial massage with this gem, and I can testify that they all were hooked as well.

terre d’Oc Milky Perfume Cloud in Plum Tree Blossom Review

If you have never heard of terre d’Oc, it’s a luxury organic skincare from France.  All the products are divided into five groups: Japan,  Bali, India, Burkina Faso and Morrocco.  Each range is based on the countries’ beauty rituals and most popular ‘beauty ingredient’ sourced in the region. I think it is a brilliant idea.

I was very lucky to get two products from the Japan range from the Tender Loving Skincare shop  to try out. I happen to absolutely love both. So today I will tell you about one of them which is Milky Perfume Cloud in Plum Tree Blossom.

It comes in a luxurious glass bottle with a beautiful design.  This product is definitely to spoil yourself!

I love using it on the body, mostly arms and chest as I’d rather use something else on my legs to save this magical product for a longer time.  It does feel hydrating and non-sticky at all, it doesn’t leave any white residue as well. I also love using it on my hair as it holds the scent longer than the body.

Plum Tree Blossom is a

Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Concentrated Hand Cream. Is It Worth The Hype?

There are so many fans of the Neutrogena’s  Norwegian Formula hand cream so when I was  looking for a new hand cream to try – I knew that it should be this one.

So last month I went to get this cream , but of course I couldn’t leave with only one cream, so I bought 3 eye pencils by Bourjous, but well, they were  so beautiful.

But back to the cream. I’ve got myself a concentrated one (50ml), the one which is scented because I like scented skincare. But unscented is a good option for a lot of people and for men as well.

The package is very compact and nice. And what about the cream itself?
