Guerlain Makeup Collection for Christmas 2016

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.

September 2016 Beauty Favourites

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 be

Chanel Libre Makeup Collection for Christmas 2016

I am loving the official description of the new Libre  Chanel Makeup collection:

“Sheer meets intense. Matte and glossy collide. The artificial clashes with the real in a bold new makeup collection inspired by the material urban world. Striking contrasts of colours, textures, intensities and light capture a contemporary edge and thrilling moment in time.”

This collection with all the pink and silver details will definitely stand out among all the gold and red glittery offerings which are usually released for Christmas. There is also a new foundation! So far you can only buy the products from Chanel’s website but later on from NordstormBergdorf GoodmanNeiman Marcus, Selfridges, Harrods.

Revlon Professional Hydra Capture Shine Up Shampoo Review

I am always on the hunt for a new good shampoo which does work and does what is promised, and today I want to share about the best one I have used in a  long time.  And it is Revlon Professional Hydra Capture Shine Up Shampoo which I’ve bought after reading some very positive reviews about it.

Revlon Professional Hydra Capture Shine Up Shampoo ReviewI personally find that it lives up to the “Shine Up” name, as it does add that glossiness and sheen to the hair which

Matte Liquid Lipsticks: Chanel and Burberry

Matte liquid lipsticks are here to stay! More and more brands are releasing their versions with formulas becoming less drying and the shades becoming more sophisticated.

And here are two latest launches from such brands as Chanel and Burberry.

Speaking of Burberry, I think their new strategy is simply genius! As you know, it is a Fashion Weeks month, and besides the clothes (obviously) a lot of us are obsessing over the beauty looks at the Runway: hair, makeup and nails.  We often get a sneak preview of the products which will be available for the purchase only in months. But not anymore when it comes to Burberry! All the products Wendy Rowe and her team used on the girls are already available, both new shades and new products.

Such as Burberry Liquid Lip Velvet  in Fawn Rose available from Burberry’s website for $34

“Developed with a new, innovative formula, which combines rich pigment, smooth application and a whipped, creamy texture to create a bold, velvet finish that lasts for up to eight hours. Light-as-air  Liquid
