I am sorry about the lack of updates, life and work got in the way, once again. It’s the end of the year, so things are a bit mental. It should be a lot better in January though..
But I saw this tag on Gio’s Beautiful With Brains blog, and I thought that’d be a good one for a little update.
1. Which product do you still keep buying more of despite having plenty in your collection?
Red nail polish and pink baby pink lip glosses – those are my must haves, and I am always looking for a better option.
2. What is the one product that you can not live without?
I assume that we are talking about makeup, not beauty in general – so that’d be this brown eye pencil.
3. Favorite Makeup Brand?
It’s a very hard question. Maybe BECCA?
4. How big is your makeup collection?
I’d like to think that my personal makeup collection is not that big. But since I also do makeup in my free time, as a hobby and as an extra income – I do own more than I
Since I’ve posted about the highlighters recently, I have realized that I haven’t mentioned the new shade of one of my favourite Rouge Bunny Rouge products, their Eyes Wide Open Brightening Liner Duo yet, and it was launched several months ago.
I wrote a very detailed review of the original shade here, so this post will be more about comparing the two shades.
In a nutshell, this is a brilliant brightening and highlighting multi-tasking pencil with a creamy and smooth texture, it can be used both on the eyes, and face, I also tried mixing it with lip products.
The new shade is called GLACIER FLOWER and the
If you are a fan of the original Carmex or their Moisture Plus, you’d be happy to find out that the brand brought out two new shades recently.
They already had a pink and peach shade (along with a clear one) which I have reviewed previously so you can read all the details, see swatches and ingredients.
I actually have both new shades and want to show them to you. They are called berry and plum, and I could not be happier with these shades, as you can imagine.
The one that is called berry is a sheer red and the plum on is a sheer Bordeaux. You can get an almost-there shade but can layer it up to get a more visible results.
I think it’s a great idea for those who are afraid of full on red or dark shades, plus it
I love Elemis oils, I’ve already used up my Frangipani one completely, so was curious about the Cellutox Active Body Oil, a sample of which I received about a year ago.
I’ve started working out on a regular basis this summer so started using this oil, too.
The brand describes it as an “energising citrus body oil (so it smells really nice) that contains a powerful synergy of detoxifying Sea-buckthorn, Sea Fennel, Lemon and Juniper.” It is supposed to help combat the build-up of toxins caused by a poor diet, stress and a sedentary lifestyle and also help to combat cellulite and condition skin.
So how do I use it?
I warm several drops of oil in my hands and massage into thighs, buttocks and abdomen. I have just noticed that the brand suggests using it on the tops of arms, so will start doing that, too, as my arms = the area I have been working on very hard for months now. I apply
Do you know why I am always waiting for the new collections? I hope to see the item that I want/need/MUST get for myself! I remember when I first saw YSL Fall 2010 makeup collection I instantly fell in love with the # 7 Bronze Gold Ombrés 5 Lumieres palette.
I was extremely happy when I got it. I should have written the review long time ago because it’s already time to talk about YSL 2010 fall collection. But it’s better late than never.
So what do I love so much about these shadows
Or should I say adore? 😉
- It’s a pure high-end item, everything about it is so elegant and luxury.
- I got these palette because of the colours, they are amazing!
Brown – beautiful golden brown shade
Yellow – shiny yellow
Highlighter – the most amazing shadows, shimmery golden shade ( I need a dupe)
Khaki – shimmery khaki shade
Eyeliner – matte brown shade, I use it for the bows sometime and also to line the eyes.
- I think these are quite unique shades for a high-end brands because there are not that many yellow shadows among luxury companies. I can think about shu uemura and Shiseido righ now.
- This palette is perfect for
