Oils are a necessity for me, beauty-wise, especially in AW period. My skin is very dry, and during the cold months it is flaky and sore. And I do love my daily hot shower which dries out the skin even more. But I just can’t help it. The relaxing and anti-stress effect [of a hot shower] is very important for me.
This is why I’ve decided to get some shower oils. I have started with Yves Rocher Oriental Shower Oil .
And it is really lovely indeed. It has a subtle oriental scent, as the name suggests. The way it looks and smells – it reminds me of honey. My favourite way of using it is to apply to the skin directly. It turns into milk when contacted with water, and leaves the skin smelling divine, and feeling softer and more moisturized than after a regular gel. I stillRead More

I have two products from Bobbi Brown’s Illuminating Nudes Spring collection to show you. Sheer Lip Gloss in Almost Peach and Sparkle Eye Shadow in Golden Peach.
Sparkle Eye Shadow in Golden Peach
I really like Bobbi’s eye shadows in sparkle formula, and I use my Black Chocolate one pretty often. I think this is just the best eye shadow type to use for a night out, it looks absolutely gorgeous in the artificial light, the sparkles are truly beautiful. In the day time, it may not be appropriate for an office work if you layer it all over the lid but would be great for adding just a bit of dimension in the center of the lid. Also, it looks a lot more subtle in the day light.
And the formula is smooth and not gritty at all, I think they’ve nailed it. If there is a shade that you like – I wouldRead More
I love how brands are bringing out natural-looking and light base products. There is nothing worse than cakey mask on the face. New Dior’s Diorskin Air range looks like a great one to avoid it.
