New Beauty Purchases

I haven’t posted a “New Purchases” feature in ages because I haven’t really been buying beauty products lately, but here is  finally a round-up of my newest picks (which I have already posted at my Instagram).

Clarins Gentle Foaming cleanser for dry or sensitive skin

I have posted about Clarins cleansers and toners, and about to publish the second part. This is actually the only Clarins cleanser  (suitable for my skin type) that I haven’t tried yet, so it was about time. So far, I enjoy using it so expect a feature.

Clarins Day Screen Multi-Protection SPF 50

This is a must have product in my daily skincare routine, in fact, I have

October 2017 Beauty Favourites

I don’t have that many favourites this month but I really love each and every one a lot.

Givechy Phenomen’ Eyes Mascara in Deep Black (from  Neiman MarcusBarneysHarrods, Sephora, Escentual and Nordstrom)

I am huge fan of Givenchy Noir Couture Mascara, and I really like this one, too. This ball-shaped mascara has been around for a while but I have tried it only this year and only because I’ve bought it by accident (did not return it because the lady at Givenchy told me it is her favourite). And I am happy I’ve kept it, as it is great. It takes time to get used to this shape but once you do – you can get incredible results: think, long and black lashes. I also like the fact that this mascara stays on without smudging all day. The only thing I’d  say is that this is not a I-am-in-a-rush product, it does take some time to build up the effect but it is worth it, in my opinion.

September 2017 Beauty Favourites

I am sorry that I am writing about my September favourites only now but it is better later than never, right?

I love writing these, as it it always great to see what you’ve been loving, beauty wise.

Makeup

Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Soft Brunette (review and swatches)

I have rediscovered this little gem. The colour is spot on for me, and I like the shape of it which allows a very quick but still a precise application.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Blushing Bride (review  and faceswatches)

Love Autumn makeup, all the berry and wine shades, and this was the blush of the month, not only I’ve used it  on my friend’s wedding day but I have been also using it on myself pretty much every day. It gives that beautiful flush with a hint of subtle golden shimmer.

Tarte tartelette Amazonian clay matte palette, ($46 from Sephora)

A lot of love for tarte lately, this

Hand Cream Love: J.R. Watkins and Brooks & Waters

I am the biggest hand cream fan ever,  I have mentioned so many hand creams on the website already, and posted quite a few over at my Instagram, too.

So today I want to show you my two newest loves, both were gifts from my friends which is very sweet of them. One was brought to me from Canada, and the other one from the USA.

J.R. Watkins Shea Butter Hand Cream ( get  it from Amazon and Amazon UK)

I used this one mostly during the winter, as it is very nourishing and quite thick formula-wise (check out all the butters and oils in the ingredients list).   I honestly think this is one of the

Kerastase Mousse Bouffante Review

I am a huge fan of Kerastase, and love me a good  product for hair which creates volume.  And since I already have a lot of different hair sprays, I have decided to pick up  a mousse – Kerastase Mousse Bouffante.

I used to use hair mousse like 15 years ago, when I was still at school, and I remember loving the effect. And, of course, Kerastase mousse delivers, it helps to create this incredible illusion that you have a lot of volume in your hair, without making it look or feel greasy, it doesn’t weight the hair down, too. It is also
