Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm Review (review)
It is such an ah-mazing cleanser, feels creamy and lush on the skin, smells really nice, and leaves the skin soft and smooth. It can be also used as a face mask. What else could you ask for?
Elemis Exotic Cream Moisturuzing Mask
This is one of my favourite face masks ever, so I am not sure why I still did not write a proper review about it, will do soon. As the name suggests, it moisturises and soothes the skin. Whenever I am stressed out, don’t get enough of sleep and work-work-work, this is the mask that helps my skin to look and feel decent.
You can buy Elemis from Feel Unique.
Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation Creme (review)
I wrote a detailed review about this cream last week actually, so you can take a look. But in a nutshell: it is a lightweight but hydrating cream that also helps with discolouration. It retails for $40 from Sephora and £47 from Feel Unique.

It’s time for monthly favourites! And this month I’ve been loving all the products that I’ve featured in May’s favourites, and several more.
Two products from Maybelline: Master Smoky Shadow Pencil in Smoky Chocolate (review and swatches) and Colorama Nail Polish in 16 Place Vendome.
The eye pencil is the a beautiful dark brown fuss-free crayon, which you apply, smudge with a sponge it comes with, and enjoy a long-lasting eye makeup. As for nail polish, I’ve been wearing it for two weeks this month, and already featured here. It is a beautiful bright and glossy fuchsia, I promise to post swatches soon.
I also have two picks from Rouge Bunny Rouge: Raven Glaze Lacquer Liner (review and swatches) and
Can you believe that today is the first of May? Last month of Spring, time flies…
New month = new monthly favouries. And I really love all the products below.
Makeup wise, I had pretty much the same favourites, as in March: , RBR eye shadows in Solstice Halcyon, Marc Jacobs’ Lola nail polish, NYX’s Taupe, Peter Thomas Roth CC Cream and Clarins’ gloss.
This is why this time I want to tell you about some other products:
This month I just have to mention two brushes. First of all, I’ve been using a “classic” flat foundation brush. I usually apply bases with my fingers or kabuki Sigma brushes but I’ve decided to start using those original foundation brushes again. So, I’ve been loving this one from Lancome. I still remember how much I wanted to buy that set, my friend bought it for me in the States. And I like the results and the finish it creates.
My other brush hero is Rouge Bunny Rouge’s Face Contour Brush 012. This is a brilliant tool for contouring, more details coming soon.
Elemis Pro-Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm (review)
It’s time for the monthly favourites! And I think, next time I will be doing 2013 favourites, so I better start planning it soon. Also, I can’t wait for the holidays, as I have a lot of plans.
Chanel Le Volume de Chanel Mascara in 10 Noir (review)
I still think that it is one of the best mascaras in the World! It makes even my not-so-impressive lashes look fantastic, adds tonnes of volume and is ultra black. I have a mini size but I am so getting a regular one soon!
BECCA Luminous Skin Colour Ultra-Sheer Foundation
I better write a review about this wonderful product soon. As the name suggests, it gives a very sheer coverage and is undetectable on the skin. With a little bit of concealer where you need it – you can get a perfect complexion which looks very natural.
Clarins Instant Concealer (review)
As I’ve already said, it instantly brightens up the way you look, feels light and is pretty long-lasting.
Ellis Faas Hot Lips L406 Rose Violet (review)
My latest love in terms of lip products. I have been wearing it non-stop, as it applies smoothly, has a
It’s about time for my June favourites, right? But I guess it is better late than never, so here we go.
First of all I want to show you two products that I couldn’t find when I was taking a group photo. Since I am completely re-doing my place, it’s a total mess and it can be hard to find things…
I was away half of June and this lill’ mitt was a great product to have with me. Although it is suggested that you use it without any cleanser to take the makeup off (and it does work that way), this time I’ve used it with a cleanser to make sure that everything was properly removed from my face.
I don’t wear bronzers, unless I have some tan on. And since now I do, mostly thanks to self tanners, I’ve been wearing this YSL’s Terre Saharienne bronzer a lot in June. It warms up the complexion and has the right amount of shimmer, which is not over the top, but spot on.
I have been absolutely in love with Daniel Sandler’s Eye Shadow Quad in Scandal at Midnight, I’ve used it both on myself and on the beautiful model on the shoot I worked on recently. And, as I’ve already mentioned Desire is perfect for
