Rouge Bunny Rouge Long-lasting Duo Cream Eye Shadow in Birdwing Beauteous Review and Swatches. Rave

I have shared the photo of two new eye shadow releases from Rouge Bunny Rouge eye shadows on my Instagram about a month ago, and even included that gorgeous cream duo in my monthly favourites.

I have actually already reviewed the other duo eye shadows available here, if you are  interested. But what about this new option?

 Birdwing Beauteous is a duo with a metallic sparkling finish and the shades are described as: champagne gold and silvery blue-black. RBR suggest blending two shades together to end to obtain a rich silver shade.

And, let me tell, you, it is so incredibly gorgeous. Both shades have that fine silver glittery particles that create the multi-dimensional look on the eye lids. I have got so many compliments and questions thanks to these eye shadows. Unfortunately, my photography skills were not enough to capture the effect on the photo. So you have to trust me that it looks way more interesting and beautiful in real life.

As for the formula,

New Beauty Purchases

Here are the four new products I have bought recently…

new-beauty-purchases-ren-soap-and-glory-ahava

REN Rose O12 Moisture Defence Oil (it was on my list) REN is available from:  Cult BeautyFeel Unique  and Sephora

I have used up yet another Optimum Skin Serum Oil which is my Holy Grail product by REN and decided to get a different one this time. And so far I really enjoy using it. Speaking of REN, I’ve used up quite a few products from them recently, so maybe I should write some kind of a round-up?

AHAVA Deadsea Water Mineral Hand Cream with Mandarin and Cedarwood. AHAVA is available from Nordstrom

I am a hand cream fanatic, and there are actually six (including these and these) on my desk right now. I imagine the number would be higher if I could fit all of them, ahem.  But I did want a small one for my handbag. I usually get L’Occitane but decided to try something else this time.  AHAVA is a brilliant brand, so I am looking forward to carrying this cream with me, especially now that it is Winter.

Soap & Glory The Scrub Of Your Life (From Boots and Ulta)

I have a thing for Soap & Glory products, they

Christmas Gift Guide for Men

Please excuse the lack of updates, it has been crazy busy work and other projects wise, so I had no chance of updating the website, although I really wanted to.

But today I want to give some male grooming products gifts ideas a shout out. I have actually written a guide, based on my friends’ recommendations a while ago but here are two other products that are worth mentioning. One luxury, and one  – a budget option. And you already saw these if you follow me on Instagram.

The luxury option is  Charles Farris Grand Cascade Signature Reed Diffuser ( £32 from their website or from Amazon UK).
It is described as a “deep, smoky aroma of cedar, aged leather and birch, offset by fresh moss and amber. Inspired by the aged leather and woodsmoke scents of our heritage industries”, and  it is exactly that.  This would make an excellent gift for a classy and sophisticated man who appreciates luxury products.

The budget option is

November 2016 Beauty Favourites

First of all, how is it December already? I mean how is it the last month of 2016?! Are you excited for 2017? I know I am!

When I have gathered the beauty favourites to take a photo, I have realised that most of them are the same products I’ve featured in October so here are only the ones which I haven’t.

Before we start, I would like to mention some other things  I really loved in November which are beauty related, too.

Book – Branded Beauty by Mark Tungate (from Amazon and Amazon UK). I think everyone who is interested in beauty and brands should read it, the book is packed with interesting facts and quotes.  I personally really enjoyed the history of so many companies and the explanation about the marketing tips and tricks.

Mr. Selfridge TV Series.  (Amazon and Amazon UK). I’ve had this on my to-watch list for a long time already but gave it a go only last weekend, and it is great. I love how it shows the pre -WWI history of the legendary Selfridges.  Imagine that it was unthinkable to sell beauty products over the counter back in the days for obvious reasons, it is very well shown in Season 1 Episode 3.

Sparkles. I have to admit, I just have to have anything sparkling these days to brighten up the grey and dark November days, which feel like forever nights actually.

I also simply  have to include

Rouge Bunny Rouge Eye Shadow Palette Raw Garden in Caliche Review and Swatches and 20% OFF

If you  follow me on Instagram, you already saw the new seasonal products from Rouge Bunny Rouge. There is actually also a new shade of Brightening Eye Duo, too (which I forgot to include on the photo but I will be reviewing it).  I have already mentioned Rouge Bunny Rouge Serene Light Skin Perfector in my October favourites, as it is my newest obsession make-up wise, so now it is time for the eye shadows.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Eye Shadow Palette Raw Garden in Caliche. This is the second colour variation in the Raw Garden collection, and here is a review of the first palette called Antigo.

Although I am always very careful with my makeup, I’ve managed to drop my palette on the floor. At least it looks artsy, or does it?

And while Antigo is a  collection of nude shades, Caliche is all about the muted purples and lilacs, here are the official descriptions:
