Victoria Beckham Beauty Review and Swatches

I am gonna be honest, it has been a while  since I’ve bought makeup just because I wanted to, and not because I ran out of a certain product and needed a replacement.  I see information about the  new launches every single day, and I have more than enough already, so it’s  rare that I get that I-can’t-be-without-this-product kind of feeling.  But I was really excited about the Victoria Beckham Beauty line. 

I have more details about the range here.

As I’ve already shared over at my Insta, I’ve picked up 2 out of 3 items because the third item (eye shadows palette) was out of stock in the shade I wanted, and I’ve placed my order the day the line came out.

So what about the products?

As you would expect,

Makeu4all Recommends: Rouge Bunny Rouge Blush Wand FLOWERS & PORTRAITS

I’ve posted about the 2-in-1 cheek and lip products, and about Rouge Bunny Rouge sending me all the shades of their new gorgeous Blush Wands FLOWERS & PORTRAITS (which were already featured in my summer favourites) on my Insta a while ago. So here is finally a review with swatches.

I am a big fan of the brand anyway but this launch was something else, I literally love everything about it. First of all, the RBR play it classy and name their products after the great artists ( I am the biggest fan of Vrubel and Klimt btw), which, as a person who has a degree in culture and arts, I really appreciate.

Also, they stay true to themselves and release that chic decadent packaging with a big attention to the detail. The fact that the outer packaging was red this time made me  very happy indeed.  In my opinion, when it comes to luxury beauty, every little detail counts, and RBR are well aware of it.

Five Benefits of Laser Hair Removal  

I’ve shared many times already that  investing in laser hair removal was one of the best decisions, beauty-wise, I have ever made.  I would even say that it was life changing for me. It is a personal choice whether or not you want your hair removed but if you do want that – I personally was very impressed by laser, and I did try many other methods.

You can’t expose the treated skin to the sunlight for some time, hence now, when it’s Autumn – it’s the best time to book your first appointment. It will take a few months to get it all sorted so you should be done by your next summer holiday. This is why I bring you a collaboration with a beauty writer on the benefits of laser hair removal.

From hairy armpits to fuzzy legs and everywhere in-between, fighting the battle against body hair has become a modern obsession. When it comes to hair removal, there are plenty of methods to choose from but some are more effective than others.

One of the most popular methods is laser hair removal. It may sound hi-tech and maybe even a little scary but laser hair removal offers a quick and easy way to banish that unwanted hair which is causing you grief.

Read on to find out just what makes laser hair removal such a popular choice and how it could work for you.

1. Reduces Hair Regrowth

One of the main advantages of laser hair removal is that it drastically reduces hair regrowth. By destroying the hair follicles with laser beams, your hair regrowth is drastically halted and most users experience a significant reduction in the number of unwanted hairs wherever they have treatment.

If you’re sick of shaving, threading or waxing, laser hair removal offers more effective and longer-lasting results. Many users even have permanent results with no hair regrowth once their treatment course has finished.

Summer 2019 Beauty and Lifestyle Favourites

I used to do monthly favourites but since very often I would repeat a lot of  the products, it made sense to do one for each season (here is  Spring). While it is mostly about beauty, I do include a few lifestyle items, as well.

Beauty

In the summer I have been loving my rose fragrances, as always.  My biggest obsession was Goutal Eau de Parfum Rose Pompon (as seen on my Insta) from Harrods and Bergdorf. It has the notes of Bulgarian rose essence, taïf rose, peony, blackcurrent, rasberry, pink pepper, woody cedar, patchouli and white musk. And it is just my dream scent, I never want to be without it, ever.

I personally think that very few people can actually write about perfume beautifully, and I am certainly not one of them. So for now I will just insert the brand’s description of the two perfumes I’ve been loving lately. However, I will try my best  in the future.

“As you stroll down Rue des Rosiers in Paris, you can feel the vibrant, sparkling atmosphere along the cobblestone street, punctuated with the laughter from café terraces and snippets of shopkeepers’ conversations. In the spring, the climbing rose bushes flower in clusters. The wind stirs their pompom blossoms and swirls their refreshing scent with the sweet, tangy smell of pastries.” See… What is not to love?

Le Labo Rose 31 whih was my Wedding perfume

“The disturbing ambiguity of the Centifolia rose, quickly picked up by a chorus of warm, spicy and woodsy notes such as cumin, olbanum, cedar and a touch of amber…In the background, the declared sensuality of Gaïac wood and cistus highlighted by a distinctly physical animal note, give this perfume a disconcerting sense of mystery”.

 R+Co Dallas Thickening Shampoo (review here)

I raved about this shampoo only recently so feel free to read all about it by clicking the link above. Unfortunately (or luckily, I suppose), it has now been replaced by a biotin version which, hopefully, is only  better.

I want one even more now that I am watching The Durrells and enjoying their life on Corfu which is why it was a perfect time for this collaboration on how to plan a health focused holiday, because, let’s face it, we all could do with one.

3 Options For a Health-Focused Holiday

Holidays are traditionally times when individuals focus on destressing, detoxing, and
recharging for another year at work, giving them ample time to relax and reap the rewards of their hard work throughout the year. However, the new fashion for health-focused holidays puts these benefits at the forefront of their ideology, leaving holiday-goers feeling fitter, healthier, and mentally and emotionally strong.

Sports

Fitness and sports have long been fashionable options for those interested in keeping fit on holiday, with many different organised tours and independent travel options available to
those who want to combine their holiday with staying healthy. Playing sports and performing fitness activities enables people to prevent fatal illnesses such as heart disease and stroke, improves your muscle and bone strength and the working or your organs, and can even help your brain functions.
