This is one of the most beatiful collections for this holiday if not the most beautiful! I absolutely love the design and the look of all the products. Now this is what I call a perfect makeup collection, you don’t really need anything but you want everything! The makeup of the model is probably my favourite for this holiday and I can already see myself wearing gold, black and red. Really, what can be better for New Year?

I was happy that a lot of readers liked the idea of vintage and onld ads so today I want to share some of my favourite makeup ads. But they are not vintage, this time but most of them were made within the last 10 years! So here are mine and I would really love to see yours!
I have a lot of ads that I like from the old magazines (I threw the magazines away just kept some photos that inspire me!)
This Guerlain KissKiss ad with Doutzen Kroes was in all the magazines only several years ago and I remember how much I used to love it and how much I used to want this KissKiss lipstick and the gloss(there was one similar for the gloss). Probably my fave Guerlain promo, so much better than Vodianova.
Of course I had to include this one with Monica for Dior. It’s quite simple but I absolutely love it!
One more ad with red lipstick which I really liked and which was also polular several years ago is this one with Liv Tyler. Can’t say that it’s my fave now, but I remember how much I used to like it!
I know that a lot of you may find this one scary but I like it a lot for some reason. This is Ines Sastre for Lancome. Collection ofRead More
Remember my post about candles?! So, I’ve already made an order and now am waiting for my Jonathan Ward London candles to arrive! Meanwhile lets take a look at the new Tom Ford candles.

As we are talking about lipsticks today I will show you the one I’ve been loving a lot lately! And it’s a matte lipstick by Revlon. I have to say that these days I am all about matte makeup. Besides lip products, I love matte eye shadows and slightly 60’s inspired look.
So here is what they say about the lipstick “Revlon Matte Lipstick gives suede-like application and maximum colour with on trend shades, that glide effortlessly across lips depositing rich, beautiful, matte colour.”
This is how the lipstick looks like and it has this interesting design where you can see the colour without opening it, very handy if you have a lot of similar lipsticks.
The shade I’ve got is called Pink Pout and I got it for £7.29 at Boots. And this is how it looks like swatched on the skin
