CND Solar Oil Nail and Cuticle Care Review

I have featured this CND oil in monthly favourites, and it is about time I write more details about it.

This is my favourite cuticles and nails product ever, I have bought the smallest bottle (3.7 ml), and I’ve had it for about a year already, and it is only half empty.

Solar oil is infused with with jojoba oil and vitamin E, and it

theBalm Meet Matt(e) Trimony Matte Eyeshadow Palette Review and Swatches

In my April beauty favourites I promised to swatch theBalm’s Meet Matt(e) Trimony Matte Eyeshadow Palette. I actually really like theBalm eye shadows (nude Tude and Shady Lady Palette Vol.2 , and this one was not an exception.

My friend was actually clearing out her collection, and passed this onto me.  While not all shades look good on my complexion, some of them I adore, and use a lot. My personal favourites are: Matt Rossi (cool toned taupe) and Matt Kumar (warm-toned reddish brown).

As it is always with theBalm eye shadows they are very smooth and soft, their mattes are some of the best on the market, they are not at all chalky or dusty, you can see how pigmented they are, too, on the swatches below. Gorgeous, right?

One more thing which I really like is a huge mirror which is brilliant for

The Scottish Fine Soaps Company Tangled Rose Body Butter Review

This winter I have finished so many body lotions/creams/ butters, and I did want to do the empties feature but all those bottles got on my nerves, and I threw them away. However, I will share about one of my favourites – The Scottish Fine Soaps Company Tangled Rose Body Butter.

I actually bought it because of the name, regular readers will know that I am obsessed with rose scented beauty products, and even tea and coffee with rose!   I also really liked all the products from the Scottish Fine Soaps Company that I have tried in the past so had high hopes for this body butter.

And it is nice. The scent is really lovely, it is described as “roses, amber, cedarwood and a hint of

Affordable Eye Shadow Palettes: Maybelline, Max Factor, L’Oreal and Revolution

I am sorry for the lack of updates but I have been very busy with work and one project I am currently involved in. But since I have decided to sort out my makeup, I’ve wanted to post about some of the affordable eye shadow palettes that I am passing onto my friends (three of them, one I am keeping for myself).

I am also giving away like 30 lipsticks which makes me kind of proud. I should really  give away a lot more, but I could never bring myself to parting with my precious. Think Gollum from The Lord Of The Rings, ahem.

But here are the palettes.

And they are Max Factor, Maybelline, L’Oreal and Makeup Revolution.

Max Factor Masterpiece Nude Palette Contouring Eye Shadows in 03 Rose Nudes (from Amazon UK and Amazon)

This is the one that I am keeping for myself. But, in my defense, I am giving away some other palettes not shown on the photo. While the photo is not the best quality you can still see how incredibly pigmented these eye shadows are. They are really smooth and

Clarins Mascara Supra Volume Review and Photos

It’s about time I review the newest Clarins mascara which was launched as a part of their Autumn collection and was  already included in my monthly favourites several times in  September and October.

And it is actually pretty awesome! It gives the most dramatic results out of all Clarins mascara (at least out of those that I have tried). You can get pretty impressive volume, without being clumpy, and length, and it is ultra-black, too.

I think Supra Volume will work great for girls who
