I always like to see what other people take with them when they are travelling. I was away for about a week and this is what makeup I had with me. I did not plan to wear any makeup most of the time so this is why there are very few products.
I am not going to write a lot about the products as I already reviewed most of them.
1. Max Factor Second Skin Foundation. It is my favourite right now and I’ve almost used it up as you can see. Review.
2. Revlon ColorStay Under Eye Concealer. Review
3. BECCA Beach Tints in Watermelon and Grapefruit, I love these a lot. Review
4. Mini High Beam by Benefit.
5. MAC 217 and 239 eye brushes.
6. N07 Smokey Eye brush. This is one of my favourite, will write about it later.
7.Lancome Le Crayon Khol in Brun Noir, my must have. Review.
8.Rouge Bunny Rouge EyesRead More
After being really impressed with the Neutrogena’s Norwegian Formula Concentrated hand cream (just got the second one) I’ve decided to get some other products from the range. So I’ve got myself the Deep Moisture Comfort Balm and the Cracked Heel Foot Cream.
And these are nice, I like the smell and the texture but unfortunately, the body balm is not enough for my very dry skin. I guess I should try using the hand cream all over the body as I love the concentrated formula.
As for the foot cream, although my feet are not cracked, they are kind of rough and this cream makes them softer just after I’ve used it. But I can’t say if the effect is long lasting since I gave it away to my grandma who is 70+ and who has a lot of problems with her feet. She told me that her feet are in a bit better condition after using this cream but since she used it only for 3 times I think it’s too early to talk about the healing but I will ask her about the results later.
So in general, these products are not bad especially for the price but the hand cream is definitely my favourite. I still want to try more Neutrogena products in the future so maybe you can share you favourites with me?Read More

These days there are two groups of people: those who are excited about the Royal Wedding and those who can’t stand all the buzz surrounding it. I am in the first group, as you can guess, because what is there not to like about it? After all, Royal Wedding is not something that happens everyday.
But while most people want to see Kate’s dress, I personally can’t wait to see her makeup and I would REALLY like to know what products were used and who did it. Because, yes, it’s a great honour to do the makeup for such an occasion, and I personally can’t think of anything more special than this!
And just imagine what a great promotion it will be for the brands which primer/foundation/concealer/powder will be used! And I already can see a lot of young (and young at heart 😉 ) girls getting the “Kate’s Big Day” lipstick/lip gloss.
Anyway, what products do you think will be used on Kate? Do you know the name of the make-up artist? Will it influence you in any way?
I have to say that it will influence me! Why? Because I am sure that the products that will be chosen = the best quality on the market. After all it is for the wedding. The. Royal. Wedding.
By the way, in general I like Kate’s makeup but I think sometimes the eye liner looks a bit too harsh but that is only my opinion of course.Read More
I am back home at last and I have to say that it was the most amazing trip ever. I was so happy to see my friends and family! I hope you had a lovely Easter, too.
A lot of readers have been asking me about the Hourglass Cosmetics Vol.6 Eye palette so here is the preview of this beauty! It will be available in August exclusive to Barney’s as a part of the Fall collection but I am not sure about the price yet.
It looks like a prefect basic eye palette. By the way, if you want to see this palette, as well as the new Script eye liner, in action make sure that you watch the video where the amazing Artistic Director of Hourglass and a celebrity Make-up Artist Gina Brooke shows how to create a beautiful bronzed summer look.
