AW18 Best Makeup Launches: Givenchy, Hourglass, Dior and Urban Decay

There are lots of new makeup launches for Autumn, and I have selected the hottest, in my opinion, for you to choose from. I’ve also made sure to pick something for face, lips and eyes.

Givenchy Le Rouge Liquide, £28 from Harrods, $37 from Sephora.

 Givenchy lipsticks are the hottest ones out there, if you ask me. And while I definitely do not need any new ones, I’d get this one in a heart beat. Leather case and a liquid lipstick which look easy to apply. Oh, yes!  The formula is promised to be soft and creamy, and the finish – matte. The shade featured is 410 Rouge Suedin.

DIOR Rouge Dior Ink Lip Liner, £24 from Harrods, Nordstrom.

It is basically a lipstick which comes in a form of a felt pen which allows a very precise application.  Dior claim “long-wearing formula delivers intense colour with a sumptuous matte finish for up to 12 hours”. The colour shown is

Jessica Quick Dry 60 Second Drying Review

Recently I’ve posted about my new favourite red nail varnish and about my current favourite polish remover.

So today I would like to share about my other discovery which is “drying drops”. I have never tried them before but was curious to do so, so picked up a bottle of Jessica Quick Dry 60 Second Drying.

Pictured is also a repurchase of CND Solar Oil

And it is a really cool product.  It is basically a drying oil which you drop on your nails after applying a nail polish. It really speeds up the drying process which is absolutely incredible.

The product does not mess up the nail polish and is absolutely undetectable. So if you

Lipsticks in Red: Chanel, Dior, Guerlain and Lancome

I am the biggest fan of a red lipstick, and if there is anything better than a red [lipstick], that is one in a red packaging.  And it looks like it is a mini trend for the Autumn, and it is something  that has my 100% approval.

325 Rouge Kiss  Guerlain (I actually have this shade in a regular packaging), Copacabana Lancome and Ultra Trouble Dior; Chanel is from previous collection

Let’s take a look.

Chanel Rouge Allure

First of all, if you’ve missed the red edition Rouge Allure last Christmas, fear not, there will be new ones this Christmas. They are not out yet but should be any week now.  Chanel is available from NordstormSaks, Neiman Marcus, Selfridges and  Harrods.

GUERLAIN KissKiss Creamy Satin Finish Lipstick, $37 from Sephora

“Enriched with hyaluronic acid spheres, KissKiss creates a look of

Weleda Wildrose Deodorant Review

Natural deodorants have  been a huge thing lately. And not only in the beauty industry but among my girlfriends, too. And most of them could not be less interested in beauty trends.

While I am personally not about all organic “clean” products, I’ve decided to try the “natural deodorant”, as well. And while Malin & Goetz (Nordstrom, Net a Porter,  Space NK) seemed like the most popular and effective based on the recommendations I saw, I went for Weleda because… rose, obviously. I mean, gimme all the rose scented products.

On Weleda’s website we read that  with this deodorant “the  sweating process is allowed to continue its essential job, but the odour is inhibited” which sounds great but is it really that way?

One of my best girlfriends, who is like a spokesperson for Weleda and always raves about their products,  was not impressed with their deodorants (she uses baking soda or lemons now) but I’ve decide to try it anyways. Rose, remember?

So what are my impressions?

First of all,

Mavala Extra-Mild Nail Polish Remover Review. Rave

I love me a  gel nail polish, and I envy those girls who can wear gels non stop but after having had them for a few months without a break I had to stop for a while, as my nails were getting weak and just flaky.

But I also do love a good ol’ red nail polish so don’t mind  painting the nails myself occasionally.  But since then I had to start getting into base/top coats/cuticle oil/ you name it. And I also had to purchase a nail varnish remover.

It escapes me why on earth  I have never tried anything decent. I’ve always went for those cheap acetone based ones. But this time I’ve decided to try something milder, and
