I have a new rule when it comes to beauty products, one out – one in (ok, maybe more than one in)! Meaning that I am allowed to buy new beauty products only after I finish some from those that I already have. This is why I get a bit excited when I see a new empty bottle in my bathroom.
I actually have some new items on the way to me, as I type. Can’t wait to try my them all!
I know that it’s not the end of Autumn yet, and there are still three weeks, but I have big doubts that I will finish anything else by the end of the month.
And by the way, here are Summer Empties. I’ve decided to do such features every season.
I really love bath oils, so, since I’ve used up two of my favourites Lavera Organic Wild Rose Bath Oil and Cowshed Lazy Cow Soothing Bath & Body Oil to the very last drop – I’ve already ordered some new ones, which are on their way to me.
Since I have very dry skin, I have to use body moisturizers, sometimes more than once a day, so I go through them quite quickly and this month I have finished the following products:
The Body Shop Pink Grapefruit Body Butter. I think these butters don’t need any introduction and explanation, they are fantastic. This particular one was a present from the boyfriend which made even more special.
Aromatherapy Assosiates Enrich Body Serum. I never used a body serum before, and was excited to try such kind of product, as it makes sense to use serums/oils on the body before a cream just, as you would on the face. It works! Plus, asRead More

I am personally a “Touche Eclat girl” when it comes to under eye products, although it is a highlighter, not a concealer, I find that it works for me! But sometimes, that is not enough. If only I had more hours of sleep.
I have very dry skin, so can’t imagine putting heavy, full coverage concealers/correctors under the eyes, as those would make me look 10 years older.
That’s why I was curious to try Clarins’ Insant Concealer.
I have shade No2, which is described as 02 pinky-beige, and which is a perfect match for my skin tone.
I love the design of this concealer, you don’t have to put your fingers in it, or use the attached brush, like with most concealer-type products, so it’s a good one to have in a kit, too.
The formula isRead More
Here is a preview of the new Illamasqua collection for Christmas 2013, I love the promo images and the style, makes me think of the 20′s for some reason.

Looks like Face Of the Day is now a more, or less regular feature. Maybe at some point, I will get brave enough to include photos of myself, too. Who knows?! But, as for now, here are the products that I’ve used and my opinion about them.
This look was all about my good ol’ blush love – Chanel Orchid Rose. I used to wear it every single day years ago, so I’ve decided to show it some love today.
I’ve started with Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer in Ivory to get a medium coverage and glowing effect, that way I didn’t even need a highlighter. It’s a great “foundation” for dull Autumn days. I’ve added some YSL’s Touche Eclat under the eyes, to brighten up the area and make me look less tired.
As, I’ve already mentioned, I’ve used Chanel Joues Contraste in Orchid Rose blush, which is a pretty warm-toned shade. To add even more warmth to the face – I’ve used YSL’s Terre Saharienne Bronzing Powder in N° 5 Cinnamon Sand.
I wanted this look to be all aboutRead More
