So it’s time for August favourites! This month I got a lot of new products and here are those that I loved the most.
1 and 2 – Illamasqua’s Precision Inks in Abyss (deepest black) and Alchemy (antique gold). It’s easy to use them, the colours are rich and pigmented and they stay on forever. You can read the detailed review and see the swatches here.
3.Guerlain KissKiss Gloss in Crystal Pearl 800, shimmering iridescent pink.
I’ve been using this gloss all the time and got a lot of compliments and so many people asked me about the colour. Pale sparkly pinks are my favourite lip glosses so no wonder that I like this one so much. The formula is quite thick and moisturizing. Keep in mind that it’s a scented gloss. Crystal Pearl is beyond gorgeous and it reminds me of my favourite gloss of all times – Mica by Chanel. Detailed review coming later.
4. Rouge Bunny Rouge Decadent Duos Joys and Desires in Rumba Cubana.
This is a nice product which is a liquid blush and a lip gloss. I love multi-purpose travel friendly products and this is one of them. The lip gloss is lovely but the blush is just amazing, I am totally in love. The formula is not heavy at all and it’s easy toRead More

I love Emily Blunt and I think that she always looks gorgeous! And she looked stunning at the 62nd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards in a beautiful lavender dress from Dior’s 2010 Resort Collection.
Besides beautiful dress and makeup she always has a great hair style and I got some tips oh now to create it yourself.
Emily’s hair was done by her long-time stylist, London-born Laini Reeves, co-owner of the hot new Essensuals London Salon on Melrose Avenue in L.A. http://www.essensualslondon.com/
Laini Reeves, who also styled the hair for Emily Blunt’s recent wedding, created a fresh yet sophisticated look inspired by the iconic finger waves of the 20s. She used lightweight, instantly-absorbed argan oil-infused Moroccanoil products to style Emily’s shoulder length layered hair into a beautiful waved design that fell slightly below the jawline on the sides, and with shorter, pincurled accents at the nape of the neck.
How to get the look:
“We wanted to create a look that was very different from any that Emily had worn before. Once I saw the gown, I knew that a modern look based on the waved looks of the 20’s was the perfect compliment for the design.
- I first shampooed Emily’s hair with Moroccanoil Moisture Repair Shampoo to leave it soft, shiny and well conditioned for the intricacies of styling.
- After mixing a cocktail of Moroccanoil Intense Curl Cream and the original Moroccanoil Treatment, I worked the blend from the middle to the ends of the hair to control ends and flyaways and provide natural-looking, soft hold.
- Next, I made a low side-part on the
Take a look at the new NARS Pure Matte lipsticks:
“BOLD. BRIGHT. PERFECTLY MATTE. This ultra-matte, super-rich lipstick provides high formula with the supple feel of a hydrating lip treatment. The formula includes ingredients that Mango Butter is added at levels known to provide additional comfort and moisture.”
There are 6 shades available:
- Volga, deep aubergine
- Bangkok, soft rose
- Tonkin, cinnamon plum
- Terre de Feu, black
It’s a always a pleasure to see a new collection by Chanel.
So here is the new SoHo collection. This collection is all about a ” a very special kind of New York woman. She is innocent, but she has a steely determination that fuels the city” . In this collection you can see both soft pink for lips and dark metallic shades for nails plus a SoHo palette and a Stupendous quad.
Here is Peter Philips himself talking about the collection. And I like how he describes it: “Stupendous, Steel, Strong, Stunning, Stunt, Star: strong names that reflect the candance, the musical rhythm, the heartbeat of SoHo”
