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:
October is one of my favourite months and I am kind of sad that it is over already but it was a great one despite the fact that I was ill for over a week.
I’ve decided that before talking about my beauty favourites, I’d mention some other things I like/enjoy:
- I’ve finally went to my first swimming class after planning on going for months. Since I’ve got sick the next day I haven’t been back yet but I will be. Next week.
- Downton Abbey. That 1920’s style…And I refuse to accept that it’s the last season.
- Since I was ill for a week at home, I’ve got time to read and it was wonderful. I was mostly reading cultural and philosophical articles (yeah, I do love such topics) but here is my reading list.
- And finally – Pinterest. This has to be my favourite social media, I am always browsing/pinning/saving photos.
Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in Alluring Rose (review and swatches)
This is probably my favourite launch of the year. Seriously, I could not love these blushes more than I do, and I feel like I have been going on, and on about them. They have the creamiest and softest texture, blend beautifully and have that all-in-one effect. You don’t really need any highlighter or sculpting, just this. And
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!

This shade instantly caught my attention and made me think of my favourite eye shadows ever, Rouge Bunny Rouge Bejewelled Skylark so I had to pick it up.
Look how pretty it is in the sunshine!
It is exactly the kind of shade that I love with a beautiful delicate shimmer, it looks stunning. As for the quality, it is brilliant: the colour can be applied rather sheer or can be built up, it blends out beautifully, does not crease, fall out or smudge on me.
I have been wearing it non stop paired with this
