This was supposed to be a guest post for one blog which was never published so I though I’d share it here. I had to pick 5 must-have products that I can’t live without. I’ve written this post in June but I still agree with everything that I wrote even if it was month ago. Only my under-eye concealer preferences are changing from time to time.
1. Lancome Hypnose mascara
Unfortunately my natural lashes are thin and quite short so I can’t live without a good mascara. Hypnose by Lancome works miracles for me. Sometimes I even get asked if I am wearing false lashes!
2. Chanel Glossimer in Mica
Glossimers are my favourite glosses of all times. I absolutely love the formulation of this lip gloss which is pretty thick and some may even find it sticky. I have a lot of different shades but Mica, a light pink with shimmer, is my must have.
3. Lancome Le Crayon Khol in Brun Noir
You probably already know that I am a huge fan of Benefit cream eye shadows! But what about the powder eye shadows?
I have 2 shades which were a part of one Benefit set which I got for myself last Christmas.
The shades that I have are: Leggy (pink nude satin) and Dandy Brandy (copper spice) which both are beautiful colours and can be worn every day.
These shadows are great: they areRead More
I just LOVE Benefit sets! They are amazing if you want to try the products of the brand but don’t want to spend a fortune. This is how I got familiar with Benefit myself: I just bought several sets (they usually have a lot of Christmas) and then bought the products that I loved the most in the original size.
So here is one more adorable set which is called Primpcess Set and which you can get for £25 at the Benefit UK website.
This kit contains:
- boi-ing 02 concealer,
- creaseless cream shadow/liner: r.s.v.p.,
- 3 powder shadows: for contouring, for accenting, for lining,
- BADgal mini mascara,
- eye bright instant eye brightener,
- brushes galore & a lesson.
I think that’s a great price for so many products and it is definitely worth getting it if you are new to the brand or want to have your fave products in one palette. There will be some more great sets but, unfortunately, I couldn’t get the updates.Read More
It’s not a secret that my favourite mascara of all times is Hypnose by Lancome but I like trying new mascaras from time to time.
While a lot of people say that it’s a waste of money to buy a high-end mascara I have to disagree because I personally see a HUGE difference in a high-end and drugstore mascara. Yes, I do love Max Factor mascaras and some others are not so bad but they can’t replace the high-end mascaras for me. But I am talking about my own lashes. On some other people I can’t really tell the difference.
And I am obviously not trying to say that all the high-end mascaras are brilliant but most of those that I’ve tried are really good and in my opinion are worth the money. Maybe if you have long and thick lashes you can get a £5 mascara and be happy with it but I am not so lucky, so I can’t.
So today I want to tell you about one of those good high-end mascaras. And it is Film Noir mascara by Hourglass Cosmetics.
I have to start with saying that I love the design so much. It is simple and elegant, just what you would expect from a mascara which retails for £20/$28.
And what is about the mascara itself?

Recently so many people have been raving about the Aromatherapy Associates so I just had to put this set on my wish list. It’s an amazing way to try a lot of products from the brand.
Aromatherapy Associates Ultimate Bath and Shower Oil Collection, 7.5 ml each oil, £49.50/€ 58.59
- Deep Relax: Vetivert, Camomile & Sandalwood,
- Light Relax: Ylang Ylang, Lavender & Petitgrain,
