Here is a preview  of three new lipstick launches from luxury brands.

Dolce & Gabbana Miss Sicily lipstick, $36 Dolce  & Gabbana Beauty is available from  from Harrods Saks and Nordstrom.

This lipstick was inspired by the  free-spirited attitude of the Sicilian lifestyle.  It delivers the colour of a lipstick, the shine of a gloss, and the care of a balm and offers a dewy finish. There are 16 shades to choose from. Shown above is 320 Onofria.

Dior Addict Long-Wear Lip Tattoo Tint, $30 from Saks and Selfridges

May 2017 Beauty Favourites

Can you actually believe that is it June already, 06th month? We are almost half through 2017. How did it happen? But so far, 2017 was absolutely incredible so I am really looking forward to the rest of the year.

And here are the (beauty) products I have been loving in May:

EOS hand cream and lip balm (reviewed here)

I have finally discovered the joy that is EOS, the lip balm and hand cream, and they are dreamy. Non-greasy texture, incredible scents and both products leave your skin soft and smooth, body lotion from the brand is now on my “to buy” list.

Eucerin Hyaluron-Filler Eye Cream (you can buy Eucerin from Feel Unique,  Amazon)

I have been really tired lately, and my under-eye area really shows it, so after reading some very good reviews about this eye cream, I have decided to try it myself. The product is promised to target wrinkles, and is formulated with “a combination of high and low molecular Hyaluronic Acid”, it also contains SPF 15 which is great for protecting the delicate area. I use Hyaluron-Filler  every morning and evening, without a fail, and I have to say that my under-eye area is looking and “feeling” better (smoother and more moisturized, and, hopefully, I am not the only one who can tell that).

Montale Roses Musk and Roses Musk Intense Perfumes

It is not a secret that I am a huge fan of

SS17 Mascaras: Dior, Lancome, YSL, Givenchy

Quite a few brands famous for mascaras launched  additions to their ranges, and we are talking about Lancome, YSL (The Shock) and Dior.  And I have reviewed at least one from each brand in the past…

I am also a huge fan of the Givenchy mascaras, so I am excited to see a new one from them, too.

But today let’s take a look at two mascaras I haven’t mentioned yet.

Dior Diorshow Pump‘N’Volume Mascara, $29.50 from Sephorafrom Selfridges and Bergdorf Goodman .

“A super-volumizing squeezable mascara with a fully loaded brush for instant, extreme lash volume.  By pumping the soft tube, you’ll coat the brush and soften the creamy, rich mascara formula inside for a perfect, fresh application, every time”.

Lancome The Monsieur Big Mascara,  $25 from Sephora,  Neiman Marcus,  Selfridges, HarrodsNordstrom.

“A high-volume mascara that delivers bold lash volume for up to 24 hours. Features a large brush and an ultra-creamy formula that glides onto lashes like silk and delivers up to 12 times the volume with up to 24 hours of wear”.

I am actually trying out quite a few mascaras now, so expect to see the reviews in the future.

CND Solar Oil Nail and Cuticle Care Review

I have featured this CND oil in monthly favourites, and it is about time I write more details about it.

This is my favourite cuticles and nails product ever, I have bought the smallest bottle (3.7 ml), and I’ve had it for about a year already, and it is only half empty.

Solar oil is infused with with jojoba oil and vitamin E, and it

Makeup Trend: Eye Gloss

I have always been a fan of glossy eye lids, and it is kinda cool to see that  it is a big trend now.  Here is a look I have created with the Rouge Bunny Rouge eye gloss back in 2012.  If you haven’t tried the glossy eye lid look, definitely do, it is so effortless, fun and sexy. Sounds like such a cliche thing which is said about every “trend”, but in this case it really is all of that.

You can always get the RBR or MAC eye glosses. Or try the new options. And now it is very easy to get the one you like, considering that even such brands as Bobbi Brown and YSL now have them.

Bobbi Brown just launched three  shades (£19.50 from Harvey Nichols and $28 from Barneys), and they will be a huge hit, for sure. You can choose from Beach Nude, Island Pink and Nude.  YSL offer just a clear option Yves Saint Laurent Eye Gloss Smudger ($30 from Nordstrom).

But if you want a colourful eye gloss, and from a more niche brand, I’ve got you covered, too. Here are three options for your consideration.
