I am sure that most of you are familiar with the original, and cult, Carmex balms. And today I want to show you the Carmex Moisture Plus SPF 15 Hydrating Lip Balm. It comes in three variations: clear, sheer pink and sheer coral.
I have the one in Sheer Pink.
Although the packaging is nothing exciting the main things is the product inside, right?
You can definitely feel a tingling sensation once you apply the product which I personally quite like, especially in the summer. This balm is hydrating and nourishing, indeed. In fact, I have asked some of my friends to try it, as well, to give me their opinion, and they all agreed.
As for the colour, it
I’ve wanted to try Inglot’s Body Sparkles for quite a long time but I couldn’t figure out which shade to get but finally I made up my mind and got the #54.
I couldn’t make up my mind because they all are so SO gorgeous. Most of them have a very subtle iridescent shimmer but some contain fine glitter. In the jars they make look very similar (although they are not on the website) but they give you a different frosty shade. I was kind of torn apart but finally got the one with warm toned, golden peach shimmer.
So here is how it looks like in the jar
As these are body sparkles you can use them all over your body and I personally like using it on my eyes. It looks gorgeous used over a primer with a liner and mascara. But you can also use it over the cream eye shadows for a pretty shimmery effect of press over the powder eye shadows for the dimensional look.
And this is how it looks like inside.
Lets take a look at the swatches
We all love personalised approach when it comes to everything including beauty, don’t we? This is why it is awesome to see brands having that approach. I am personally a fan of Concoction hair care brand, and now it is awesome to see Clarins and their Boosters.
What are these?
Clarins Boosters are basically high-concentrated formulas which are created for a certain concern. You simply add several drops to the cream of your choice. There are three options to choose from:
- Tones are re-energises the skin
- Minimises signs of fatigue

- Reduces feelings of discomfort
- Optimises skin strength
- Minimises the appearance of redness
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!
You can also use it for
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
