People always ask me what affordable beauty products I would recommend. My current obsessions are Kate Moss Rimmel lipsticks and L’Oreal Color Infaillible Eye Shadows.
Actually I plan to get a new shade of both each month. I could buy them all at once but that’s not fun.
I have already shown you my 006 All Night Blue and 026 Golden Mahogany shades so today I want to show you my latest addition which I’ve got only last week. And while most people won’t want blue or reddish brown, this shade should get a lot of love.
And I am talking about the shade 024 Bronze Divine (I think it has different name in some countries). It is such a beautiful golden khaki. It is perfection! Just take a look at how gorgeous it looks like:
You’ve probably heard a lot about Barry M’s Dusky Mauve which is a Chanel Paradoxal dupe. I’ve been wearing it last week so thought I’d share the photos with you.
I really like the Barry M nail paints and I think the quality is amazing for the price (£2.99)! I do plan to get a lot of these in the future. To tell the truth, if I want to save some money on a beauty related product – it is usually a nail polish. I don’t have that many expensive nail polishes, because I’d rather get a high end lipstick or mascara and save some money on a nail polish.
I like the quality of Dusky Mauve: it is opaque with the 2 coats, for me it stays on for 3 days and the shade is pretty.
Let’s be honest, a lot of cheap nail polishes are completely horrible but I do find Barry M nail pants great! And they are only £2.99, so you can try so many shades without spending a fortune.
And what affordable nail polishes do you like? If you want to save some money on a beauty product what do you choose?
Since I have already posted about a vampy lipstick for the #LipstickWeek, it is now time for a red. Guerlain KissKiss Shaping Cream Lip Colour in Rouge Kiss 325. And I have to mention that I have a cute mini version.
Not everyone is a fan of matte and full on lipsticks, and if you are not and miss the good ol’ comfortable and creamy lipsticks – you should really consider this one. KissKiss has a soft and comfortable formula (say hello to mango butter and hyaluronic acid spheres) which glides on the lips and leaves that satin, almost-glossy finish. You can

I already made a post about Integra Inglot eyeshadows. Today I want to make a post about mono eyeshadows by Inglot and swatch my favourite shade. Inglot shadows are amazing! They stay on for long time even without primer. It’s very easy to work with them, easy to blend and the colour does not fade . There are so many different shades and you can find a perfect one just for yourself. Here is the swatch of my favourite shade
If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably already seen a preview of this new beauty book (it was released in October by Jacqui Small) – Gary Cockerill Simply Glamorous.
I wanted to put up this feature before Christmas, as it may be a book to consider as a present for a girl who loves her glamorous looks. And this book is all about glamour, a lot of false lashes, smoky eyes and red lips.
Of course, such book could only be pink, the perfect choice to fit the content.
So what is inside?
Gary starts with telling his story ( he is a celebrity make-up artist and has been working in the industry for 15+ years), and his view on makeup, which was interesting to read. I personally liked that he is self-taught and doesn’t believe in “makeup rules”.
Next we get some basic tips on skincare and just some general suggestions which a lot of girls will find useful. The make-up artist then covers all the basics from matching your foundation, applying concealer and powder to the new trend which is contouring. Everything is covered, and it is a great guide even for the beginners.
There are the same chapters about eyes and lips, too. They explain everything pretty well: from textures to the application techniques. How to groom your eye brows, how to apply eye liner, different lip products textures, all of it basically. All the
