I have already mentioned so many new lipstick launches here, here and here, but today let’s take a look at even more new and awesome releases. We all know that one can never have too many lipsticks. An although I personally can’t even fit all my lipsticks into my drawers, I want all of these. Ahem.
And even if you do not need anything, theses days the brands create such beautiful images, videos and the stories behind each product that you feel like you have to indulge. Very clever strategy.
“Covetable comfort meets confident color in a high-pigment formula that glides like a gloss, cloaks like a lipstick—and feels like nothing else. Semi-matte color glides on a stays supple without drying or feeling sticky. Developed with Oil Infusion Complex, an innovative concentration of precious oils, fused to create a smooth-glide effect. Fully coats lips on contact with smooth, saturated, semi-matte style.”
All shades are named after the ’70s counterculture phenomena. There are 13 shades, shown is No 54.

I haven’t posted about my new beauty and makeup purchases in a while, although I did feature them on Instargam, so here is a round-up.
Let’s start with beauty, I’ve actually got three products from Kiehl’s.
Original Musk Bath and Shower Liquid Body Cleanser which I’ve got after reading all the raves from Sandra, and for some reason I was expecting a more intense scent but I still like it.
I’ve also decided to finally try the hyped up concentrates – Midnight Recovery Concentrate and Morning Reviving Concentrate. I will definitely write detailed reviews later on, but so far I can say that on my very dry skin I can’t use them on their own, as I often do with serums/oils, I have to use a cream on top.
Finally, beauty wise, although I did not buy this product myself, and it was a gift from a friend, I’ve decided to mention it, as it is such a cool one – Tromborg Aromatherapy Body Oil Lavender Rose Tree (which I have already included in my favourites). From the motto ‘Scandinavian mood’ to luxurious packaging, nice formula and divine scent – it is as good as it gets.
As for makeup, it was all about Chanel, YSL, Smith & Cult andRead More
While Chanel is all about the pink and silver shades, Guerlain‘s main colours for Christmas are rich navy and gold, which is a beautiful combination. This collection is inspired by India, and the rich colours from the Indian culture. Let’s take a look at the products.
Guerlain Souffle d’Or de Shalimar ($98) Perfumed Iridescent Powder for Hair & Body. Fine shimmery gold powder for body and hair, subtly perfumed with Shalimar Souffle de Parfum notes (Vanilla, Bergamot and Orange Blossom).
Terracotta Terra India Shimmering Bronzing Powder ($55)
Météorites Perles De Légende ($65) Light-Revealing Pearls Of Powder, 3 shades inspired by Indian pigments: pink to refresh, gold to illuminate, and a touch of blue to softly correct the complexion. A blue and gold design reflecting the colours of Indian jewel cases.
L’Or Felt Eyeliner, Sparkling Gold ($34), goldRead More
Hello, October! It’s time for September favourites, and last month I’ve discovered some absolutely amazing products which I am excited to tell you about.
My favourite base combo in September (and not only in September): Clarins Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base in 01 Rose (review and swatches) and Clarins HydraQuench Tinted Moisturizer (review and swatches), decanted. I have written very detailed reviews about both products so you are welcome to take a look. But if I had to sum up – I’d say that both items work incredibly well to add that glow/sheen back in the skin. You look just fine when in reality you are ridiculously exhausted and can only dream about getting some sleep. I recommend for dry skin especially.
I really love my Inglot Sculpting HD Powder in 504 (review and swatches), as you can see from the photo above. It creates that perfect and natural shade. Works even on the pale complexions and doesn’t look muddy, the formula is soft and smooth, and blends easily.
If I had to choose only one favourite product this month – that’d have to beRead More
