October 2017 Beauty Favourites

I don’t have that many favourites this month but I really love each and every one a lot.

Givechy Phenomen’ Eyes Mascara in Deep Black (from  Neiman MarcusBarneysHarrods, Sephora, Escentual and Nordstrom)

I am huge fan of Givenchy Noir Couture Mascara, and I really like this one, too. This ball-shaped mascara has been around for a while but I have tried it only this year and only because I’ve bought it by accident (did not return it because the lady at Givenchy told me it is her favourite). And I am happy I’ve kept it, as it is great. It takes time to get used to this shape but once you do – you can get incredible results: think, long and black lashes. I also like the fact that this mascara stays on without smudging all day. The only thing I’d  say is that this is not a I-am-in-a-rush product, it does take some time to build up the effect but it is worth it, in my opinion.

I am sorry that I am writing about my September favourites only now but it is better later than never, right?

I love writing these, as it it always great to see what you’ve been loving, beauty wise.


Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Soft Brunette (review and swatches)

I have rediscovered this little gem. The colour is spot on for me, and I like the shape of it which allows a very quick but still a precise application.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Blushing Bride (review  and faceswatches)

Love Autumn makeup, all the berry and wine shades, and this was the blush of the month, not only I’ve used it  on my friend’s wedding day but I have been also using it on myself pretty much every day. It gives that beautiful flush with a hint of subtle golden shimmer.
