July 2017 Beauty Favourites

It feels like I am starting every monthly favourites with this. But how is it August already, the 8th month of the year? Where did 2017 go?

All that aside, here is a list of the things I have been loving in July, and please keep in mind that I am still loving/using all the products from the previous months, but I just want to mention the ones I haven’t mentioned before.

Makeup

theBalm  Balm Desert  (buy from  ASOSFeel Unique and Sephora.).

I have only discovered this product in July but I think this will be a new long-time favourite. There is no need to say that the formula is amazing, it always is when it comes to this brand. But what is so special about it then? It is the  shade which is perfect. Bronzer/Blush is a great description, as it is not your typical bronzer, it has a reddish undertone to it. When I first saw Balm Desert, it made me think of Dallas by Benefit but they are not the same at all.  Anyway, this products is great for adding colour to your face, and for gently sculpting it, too.

From top to bottom: Dallas by Benefit, theBalm Balm Desert , theBalm Betty-Lou Manizer.

June 2017 Beauty Favourites

June was a very busy month for me, so I did not discover/rediscover that many beauty products, however, I truly love the ones I am mentioning, they are real gems.

Makeup

Omorovicza Complexion Perfector BB SPF 20 (review and swatches). (Buy it from Cult Beauty, Net a Porter, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom)

This is one of the best base products I have ever used. I am convinced it is some kind of Magyar mágia (Hungarian magic), as it makes the face look flawless, radiant and even younger. As I have mentioned in my original review, my friend was very skeptical about my big love for this, but after trying mine, she ordered one the next day. I personally think that you can’t really go wrong with Omorovicza products in general.  They are very expensive but are worth it.

Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Lashes Mascara and  Colour Chameleon in  Amber Haze. (Buy CT from Cult Beauty, Net A Porter, Nordstrom and Bergdorf Goodman)

I should really write detailed reviews about the Charlotte Tilbury products. Both of these  were a present from a friend, and I am happy she thought of me. Legendary Lashes mascara creates absolutely incredible lashes: full, voluminous and long. Not that many mascaras will give you this effect. However, it smudges like crazy, and unless I use it with a waterproof top coat – I will end up with mascara on my upper lids. But I am kind of ready to forgive this for the effect I get.  Colour Chameleons were

May 2017 Beauty Favourites

Can you actually believe that is it June already, 06th month? We are almost half through 2017. How did it happen? But so far, 2017 was absolutely incredible so I am really looking forward to the rest of the year.

And here are the (beauty) products I have been loving in May:

EOS hand cream and lip balm (reviewed here)

I have finally discovered the joy that is EOS, the lip balm and hand cream, and they are dreamy. Non-greasy texture, incredible scents and both products leave your skin soft and smooth, body lotion from the brand is now on my “to buy” list.

Eucerin Hyaluron-Filler Eye Cream (you can buy Eucerin from Feel Unique,  Amazon)

I have been really tired lately, and my under-eye area really shows it, so after reading some very good reviews about this eye cream, I have decided to try it myself. The product is promised to target wrinkles, and is formulated with “a combination of high and low molecular Hyaluronic Acid”, it also contains SPF 15 which is great for protecting the delicate area. I use Hyaluron-Filler  every morning and evening, without a fail, and I have to say that my under-eye area is looking and “feeling” better (smoother and more moisturized, and, hopefully, I am not the only one who can tell that).

Montale Roses Musk and Roses Musk Intense Perfumes

It is not a secret that I am a huge fan of

April 2017 Beauty Favourites

Here are the beauty products I have been loving this month. There are not that many but all of them, I really enjoyed. And, yes, I still love all of the items I’ve mentioned in the previous months.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Glassy Gloss Sweet Excess  (review and swatches)

I have been obsessed with these glosses lately, they feel really moisturizing  on the lips, and give that gorgeous shimmering effect,  RAHAT LOKUM (Ppale milky pink with medium-heavy mother of pearl effect micro-shimmer) and  RASPBERRY MERINGUE (pale pink with very soft mother of pearl micro-shimmer – this shade doesn’t yield a strong colour, but it makes lips naturally pretty) are always in my handbag. This is pretty much everything I’ve used  on my lips in April.

theBalm Meet Matt(e) Trimony  (shown here)

This was a present from my friend, as she was clearing her collection and decided to pass it on. And I did not expect to like this one as much, as I do because most shades did not look like something I would wear. While I do not wear all of the shades, I really love the ones I do, they are

February 2017 Beauty Favourites

Two months of 2017 are down, wow, how did it happen? But this means that it is time for monthly favourites.

To be honest, I loved/used pretty much the same products as in January, and there are very few additions.

Also, this month most of the the products I have been loving are very cheap affordable. Let’s take a look.

I have started using my lip liners more often – especially  the  ArtDeco Soft Lip Liner Waterproof in 80  (review and swatches) and Rimmel Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Lipner in East End Snob  (review and swatches).  I actually want to get the Rimmel one in  red now, too.   I don’t really overdraw my lips like there is no tomorrow, I mainly use them to create the shape I want, and make the lipstick look more defined. But if you want to create fuller lips – this video from Lisa Eldridge is pretty awesome.

The other cheap and cheerful product I loved is  the Makeup Revolution Natural Nudes Eyeshadow Redemption Palette Iconic 3  (you can get it from Amazon UK or Amazon) which, according to all the reviews is a dupe for Urban Decay’s Naked 3. I have so many Urban Decay palettes which I have been buying over the years, but for some reason I barely ever use them, however I have been reaching for this Revolution one all the time. There are several shades I really love, and the quality is very decent, in my opinion. This palette was a present from a friend.

It’s not a secret that my favourite affordable skincare brand is
