New Beauty Purchases

It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted about the new purchases (not all of them have arrived yet), so here we go.  Most of them were actually for hair. And if you follow me on Instagram, you have already seen these photos.

Hair Care

I have been dealing with sensitive scalp issues, and also my hair started looking greasy really fast, and that is something I really hate. I’ve also visited my hairdresser recently, so have been trying to figure out the best products for my new cut.

Eucerin Dermo Capillaire Shampoo (from Feel Unique) and Euphytos Peeling Scrub  (Amazon UK) should help with the scalp issues and with a product build up. While I’ve bought the Eucerin shampoo after reading a lot of great reviews (and I do love it), I’ve never heard of Euphytos brand before but decided to try it.

April 2017 Beauty Favourites

Here are the beauty products I have been loving this month. There are not that many but all of them, I really enjoyed. And, yes, I still love all of the items I’ve mentioned in the previous months.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Glassy Gloss Sweet Excess  (review and swatches)

I have been obsessed with these glosses lately, they feel really moisturizing  on the lips, and give that gorgeous shimmering effect,  RAHAT LOKUM (Ppale milky pink with medium-heavy mother of pearl effect micro-shimmer) and  RASPBERRY MERINGUE (pale pink with very soft mother of pearl micro-shimmer – this shade doesn’t yield a strong colour, but it makes lips naturally pretty) are always in my handbag. This is pretty much everything I’ve used  on my lips in April.

theBalm Meet Matt(e) Trimony  (shown here)

This was a present from my friend, as she was clearing her collection and decided to pass it on. And I did not expect to like this one as much, as I do because most shades did not look like something I would wear. While I do not wear all of the shades, I really love the ones I do, they are

Used Up Makeup Products

While I did try to write about the beauty products I’ve used up, at some point I’ve got annoyed, as having a huge bag of empty bottles at home was not cool. But I’ve started posting  what new products I get to replace some of those I’ve used up over at my Instagram

However, I do want to share my makeup empties. And, considering how many products I actually have, finishing even one  is kind of a big deal. And I have five! I did not include any mascaras though, as I do use up several every year.

Dior Addict Lipstick in 561 Baby Rose (review and swatches)

I loved this lipstick so much and I would re-purchase it, however, Dior re-launched this line, so I will have to look for a similar version. Barely there sheer pinks are my version of a nude lip, so I do end up using quite a lot of lip products like this.

Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector in 01 Rose (review and swatches)

Another sheer pink, and another Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector empty. I have finished quite a lot of these during the years, both glosses and

NARS and Charlotte Gainsbourg Makeup Collection for Summer 2017

Some collaborations are just meant to be, they are a perfect match. And NARS  x Charlotte Gainsbourg is one of them, in my opinion. Charlotte fits the concept of the brand perfectly, and this collection looks great. Let’s take a look.
