I am on the hunt for a perfect Tinted Moisturizer for Spring and though I’d share what options I am considering. I’ve narrowed the list to 3 brands: Dior, BECCA and Hourglass. Now my only problem is that I can’t check out BECCA or Hourglass myself but since I love everything from the brands that I already have I am ready to risk.
So here are the options I am considering with the official information.
Dior Hydra Life Pro-Youth Skin Tint SPF 20 Tube 50ml, £28.50
“A lightweight, tinted moisturizer containing SPF 20 to help prevent sun damage. At the heart of the Dior Gardens blossoms the secret of new, intense hydration that helps to actively preserve youthfulness by diffusing moisture. Hydra Life combines three pure plant extracts derived from these gardens—Jisten, Centella, and Black Rose—to offer the skin all the benefits of the Cellular Bio-Exaltation. The tinted coverage offers light-diffusing pigments that create a natural and visibly enhanced complexion while the formula acts like a true defense barrier against environmental stress thanks to SPF UVA and UVB filters.”
BECCA Luminous Skin Colour, 50ml, £35
“A combination tinted moisturiser and sheer foundation, Luminous Skin Colour visibly improves the complexion, yet looks incredibly natural on the skin whileRead More
Just after I first heard of the new Dior Addict lipstick I knew that it would be mine! As I already said – I love absolutely everything about it, from the promo video and images to the design and the formula.
looks like a simple silver
There are so many shades that everyone can get a right one. If you want something very subtle – go for 253 Basic which looks similar to Guerlain 71 Rose Desir from spring which was hard to get in some countries as far as I know (I’ve swatched them both on my lips, one side was Dior on the other – Guerlain, it was the closest dupe we could find, by we I mean me and sales assistant). It may be also similar to Chanel’s Boy but I haven’t compared them.
Speaking of Rouge Coco Shine, I didn’t get one yet because I was so overwhelmed with Dior that I couldn’t pick the shade, but I will be back for it later. Although I think I will just get the Boy as I want something very natural and sheer for an every day use, as I don’t wear opaque nude lipsticks.
But back to the Dior Addict Lipstick. I’ve beenRead More

I was wearing Shellac for 20 days and I removed it only because my nails were growing, everything else looked perfect. And yesterday I’ve applied a new nail polish – Essence What Do U Think (#22) which is perfect for spring in my opinion.
I really like this pastel coral but it is kind of strange to see that my nails have a different colour after such a long time of being red.
The application is a bit streaky but looks nice with 2 coats as you can see from the photo above.
