It’s not a secret that I don’t really do nude lips. I don’t like nude lips on myself plus most of the shades don’t look flattering on me, I look really washed out.
I am sure I could find a perfect nude but I can’t say that I was searching for one. But today I am going to show you the nude that I absolutely love!
I am talking about BECCA’s Sheer Tint Lip Colour in Yasmina.
It is described as a sheer mauve nude and is priced at £22/€28/$24 (yeah, as usual everything is so expensive in the EU).
First of all I have to say that I really like the simple and elegant design of this lipstick which is a purse-friendly! It “twists and locks” so it doesn’t open in your bag. I should have read that before I got angry, I was blaming the hand cream that I’ve just applied in the fact that I couldn’t open the tube. lol I should have just twisted it instead of pulling…
The lipstick itself gives a very beautiful light coverage, and as the name suggests it reminds me of a tint. It gives enough of colour but doesn’t feel heavy. The texture is lovely and itRead More

I’ve noticed that a lot of beauty products are inspired by the Ballerina theme lately. Can this do anything with the Black Swan?
Here is for e.g the new Sephora nail polish collection which is called Urban Ballerina.
The shades are: 4 x 0.125 oz Nail Colors in (from left to right): Leotard-Optional, The Way Tutu His Heart, Who’s Spinning Tonight?, and Break a Leg-Warmer!
I LOVE that grey and purple! I would so get this set (if it was available here) especially for $18 only.
And here is one more Ballerina inspired collectionRead More
So I’ve got my No 7 Spring products. As I already said, this is one of my favourite Spring 2011 makeup collections, I loved everything in it. So I’ve got myself an eye shadows palette and 2 lipsticks.
Let’s start with an eye shadow palette (£12.50)
The design is very cute and pretty, I love it, perfect for spring!
I had to get this palette not only because it is so pretty but because I don’t really have such shades and it is nice to have a palette of beautiful pastels.
There are 4 shades:
- a nude beige which you can use as a base and to even out the skin tone on your lids
- a subtle coral
- beautiful pastel turquoise
- sea foam green, the brightest shade
All the shades are slightly shimmery and have a nice texture, they are not chalky as a lot of pastel eye shadows.
I’d say thatRead More
