I’ve wanted to try Inglot’s Body Sparkles for quite a long time but I couldn’t figure out which shade to get but finally I made up my mind and got the #54.
I couldn’t make up my mind because they all are so SO gorgeous. Most of them have a very subtle iridescent shimmer but some contain fine glitter. In the jars they make look very similar (although they are not on the website) but they give you a different frosty shade. I was kind of torn apart but finally got the one with warm toned, golden peach shimmer.
So here is how it looks like in the jar
As these are body sparkles you can use them all over your body and I personally like using it on my eyes. It looks gorgeous used over a primer with a liner and mascara. But you can also use it over the cream eye shadows for a pretty shimmery effect of press over the powder eye shadows for the dimensional look.
And this is how it looks like inside.
Lets take a look at the swatches
I am sure that most of you are familiar with the original, and cult, Carmex balms. And today I want to show you the Carmex Moisture Plus SPF 15 Hydrating Lip Balm. It comes in three variations: clear, sheer pink and sheer coral.
I have the one in Sheer Pink.
Although the packaging is nothing exciting the main things is the product inside, right?
You can definitely feel a tingling sensation once you apply the product which I personally quite like, especially in the summer. This balm is hydrating and nourishing, indeed. In fact, I have asked some of my friends to try it, as well, to give me their opinion, and they all agreed.
As for the colour, it
the Balm Shady Lady Palette Vol. 2 (£38/ $39.50) is one of my favourites!
It comes in a Zebra palette with a nice mirror and nine eye shadows, some of them can be also used as the liners.

Close up of the shades with a flash
Here are the swatches of all the shades and my opinion:
As we are talking about lipsticks today I will show you the one I’ve been loving a lot lately! And it’s a matte lipstick by Revlon. I have to say that these days I am all about matte makeup. Besides lip products, I love matte eye shadows and slightly 60’s inspired look.
So here is what they say about the lipstick “Revlon Matte Lipstick gives suede-like application and maximum colour with on trend shades, that glide effortlessly across lips depositing rich, beautiful, matte colour.”
This is how the lipstick looks like and it has this interesting design where you can see the colour without opening it, very handy if you have a lot of similar lipsticks.
The shade I’ve got is called Pink Pout and I got it for £7.29 at Boots. And this is how it looks like swatched on the skin
My impression and lip swatches
Today I want to show you the cult beauty product that is Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel Bronze Universel Bronzing Makeup Base. Actually I can’t believe that I never did that before.
Here is how it looks like, it is a classic Chanel design and you get a lot of product for your money (£32/$48) actually.
So what is it?
Chanel describes it as light cream-gel bronzer with a velvety finish. You can basically wear it underneath the foundation, as the name suggests, to make your skin look healthier and, as it is popular to say, ‘sun-kissed’. Because the texture is so blendable and light it won’t look as if you’ve caked on tones of makeup. Plus it does not feel greasy or oily at all!
