This is just a post in which I’d love to share the things that I’ve been loving and not this month. I hope you will enjoy it
Pasta and spaghetti with wine.
Both in restaurants and at home. I’ve made the one you can see on the photo.
Films with Romola Garai.
She is my inspiration of November, post on this coming soon.
FCUK ‘Whatever” T-shirt.
Whatever is like one of my favourite words. I love this t-shirt a lot.
Jonathan Ward Candle in Dance in Summer Rain.
Do you remember my post about the candles? So many people told me to get the Jonathan Ward London candle, so I did. It’s an amazing candle that makes your room full of divine scent and you don’t have to burn it for hours. The price is £20 and they ship Worlwide.
Rafaello and M&M’s
I am not a big fan of sweets but I do loveRead More
This week I was wearing Essence nail polish called Fabuless which is a black with silver shimmer. It is opaque with 2 shades and stays on pretty well. I also like that it’s a mini polish because you pay even less and can get more shades.
Essence has a huge selection of colours so you can find a shade that you like. I’ve also got some other polishes for myself so stay tuned for swatches.Read More
Last year my amazing friends from the US helped me with my Sephora order and I hope to get some help this year.
This will be a beauty present from myself for myself for Christmas. Last year I was carried away a bit so this year I’ve limited the sum I can spend to $300 (ok, $350 top)!
So this is what I want to get. Five of these are LE value sets so I really hope that I will be able to get them.
So after browsing Sephora for hours(!!!) I’ve chosen 4 sets by Laura Mercier, 1 by Benefit and 1 by Urban Decay.
Here they are:
Laura’s Secrets Volume 1 – Flawless Lips ($140 Value), $59
- 4 x 0.05 oz Lip Stains in Mocha, Shy Pink, Sugar Violet, and Mulberry
- 0.159 oz Lip Glacй in Pink Diamond
- 0.12 oz Lip Balm SPF 15
- 0.039 oz Lip Pencil in Chestnut
- Double-Ended Lip Colour Brush
Bonne Mine – Healthy Glow For Face & Cheeks Crème Colour Palette ($110 Value), $48
This ultra-sheer, blendable palette wakes up the skin and gives it an immediate, healthy glow. Customize your look with bronzer, cheek color, and glow for a natural “no makeup” radiance. Inside, there are tabs that fan out to display Laura’s secrets on how to best use the formulas to create standout results.
- 0.36 oz Bronzer Veil
- 2 x 0.14 oz Cheek Veil
- 2 x 0.14 oz Glow Veil
Eye Book ($174 Value), $45
- 9 x Eye Colours in
I’ve wanted to try the Bourjois Duochrome Eyeliner in Tilleul Dore ever since I’ve written about their makeup collection for last Spring.
I loved the idea of duochrome and couldn’t wait to try it myself. I’ve bought mine several months ago and after wearing it for several times I can share my opinion at last.
This is how the design looks like and it is also duochrome as you can see.
This pencil glides on easily and it’s easy to blend it, the colour is amazing and it is really duochrome as you can see from the swatch below. This pencil changes the shade in different light and angle. I really like this colour and I’ve been looking for such for quite a long time.

Lights is a relatively new product and its the latest edition of Ellis Faas makeup products for the eyes. In my opinion these are the best eye shadows for the holiday.
The package is gorgeous and unique and the colours are to die for, see for yourself!
This is what is written about the product:
“Like practically all ELLIS FAAS products, these are liquid, but they dry upon application, and then the Lights give the illusion of having a small metallic sheet on the eyelid. Because the particles in the product are so fine, it will appear from a distance that the shiny texture is oily or wet – even though it is perfectly dry with a smooth finish, so you won’t feel any stickiness on the eyelids, and they will not build up in eyelid creases. They are available in five shades: warm silver, greenish gold, bronze, lilac and holographic Bordeaux.”
The promo swatches from the website:
The price is €32/£25/$42
Unfortunately I’ve never tried the Lights myself but I would really love to. You can read the review of Ellis Faas range including Lights at London MakeUp Girl. She also has some links to other brilliant reviews of the brand.
And how amazing those shades are, don’t you agree? Which one would you choose?Read More
