Hourglass Cosmetics Bronzed Summer Look With Vol.6 Eye Palette

I am back home at last and I have to say that it was the most amazing trip ever. I was so happy to see my friends and family! I hope you had a lovely  Easter, too.

A lot of readers have been asking me about the Hourglass Cosmetics Vol.6 Eye palette so here is the preview of this beauty! It will be available in August exclusive to Barney’s as a part of the Fall collection but I am not sure about the price yet.

It looks like a prefect basic eye palette. By the way, if you want to see this palette, as well as the new Script eye liner, in action  make sure that you watch the video where the amazing Artistic Director of Hourglass and a celebrity Make-up Artist Gina Brooke shows how to create  a beautiful bronzed summer look.

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter, dear readers! I hope you are having a wonderful day with your family today as I am. I am miles away with my grandmother as you read this and am most likely really happy!

For me Easter is not about chocolate eggs or rabbits but since I couldn’t find a picture that I would like, here you go…

Buxom, Armani,Too Faced and Deborah Lippmann Values Sets

This week I was browsing some US websites as I’ve ordered some things for myself  ( my friend kindly agreed to help) and I came across some interesting sets which I personally think are worth the attention.

So if you are from the US, you may find this interesting. I could have included so many sets but I’ve limited them to four only.

All the sets are relatively new and I would personally  get all of them for myself.

Buxom Fashion Show…& Tell™ , $29

A collection of seven ready-to-wear Big & Healthy Lip Polishes.

This set contains:

0.05 oz x 7 Mini Big & Healthy Lip Polish in

  • Sugar (rose glow),
  • Katie (princess pink),
  • Mia (fuchsia shimmer),
  • Alison (vibrant pink shimmer),
  • Sasha (champagne shimmer),
  • Linda (sheer plum wine),
  • Kesha (sheer pink rose)

My opinion: I think it’s an amazing value for 7 glosses and a great chance to get a lot of shades for less than $30.

Too Faced Beauty In A Box: Endless Summer ($120 Value),$45

A limited-edition kit featuring a handpicked collection of our favorites from Too Faced, plus a how-to guide.

This set contains:

  • 0.11 oz Shadow Insurance

  • 0.33 oz Sun Bunny Bronzer (satin suntan/ rich satin bronze)
  • 0.12 oz Glamour Gloss in Plush (candied coral)
  • 0.4 oz Lashgasm Mascara in Black
  • 1 oz Tanning Bed In A Tube

My opinion: I think it’s a wonderful set for summer, pretty much everything you need and an amazing value.

The first two sets are from Sephora and the next two are

Elemis Exotic Frangipani Monoi Bath & Shower Cream Review and Photos. Rave

Elemis Exotic range is definitely one of the best skin care lines I’ve ever tried. Every single product is absolutely amazing!

I already wrote about the body scrub, multi-purpose melt (my favourite) and mentioned the body lotion. So today I want to tell you about the shower and bath gel which is also divine!

This shower cream smells of  Tahitian Monoi Oil and  Frangipani flowers which I like so much and I really would like to find a fragrance with a similar scent (if you know one please let me know). Elemis have Exotic Eau de Parfum but is has a different scent. So far I just use the melt as perfumes so I can feel it for a longer time but of course it doesnt’ last as long as the perfume would.

It is said that
