This month “Beauty Favourites” will be a little bit different, it will be more about the [makeup] products that I have been using on my face.
May was a very busy month for me, and I was always in a rush, so often I had to do my makeup on the go, so I had a makeup bag with the products always ready. The products have been more or less the same throughout the month, so let’s take a look:
Ella Bache Tomato Vitamin Radiance Cream (as seen on my Instagram)
I’ve bought it after someone highly recommended it to me, and so far I really love it, it really adds glow and radiance to your complexion, even if you had less than 5 hours of sleep.
Peter Thomas Roth CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Complexion Corrector (review)
This is an excellent product which combines great coverage and SPF factor but still feels light on the skin. One of my favourites for summer, the mini size is also great for carrying around.

I am loving the lipsticks that come in a form of a lip pencil, as they are easy to apply and you don’t need any extra liners or brushes for that. The other day I’ve picked up Maybelline’s ColorDrama Intense Velvet Lip Pencil.
They had so many beautiful colours but 310 Berry Much is the one that stood out for me, this is a very “me” shade. I was actually shopping with a friend who bought the nude one.
I think this is a fantastic product for the price. The pigmentation is excellent, the colour pay-off is amazing, the colour is gorgeous.
As for the finish, it is just spot-on! It is not a flat matte but, at the same time, not a sheer glossy shade. I’d describe it asRead More
I was trying all that bronzer/golden eye shadow/nude lips look for a while but I came back to what I love and to what works for me – red and berry.
After a week of being sick at home, I’ve decided to go and get some new makeup products, as a little pick-me-up treat and since I haven’t got anything new in forever (and I mean colour & cosmetics, not beauty products in general). And I’ve decided to get some drugstore products I’ve been meaning to pick up for some time now.
First of all, Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick (you can get it on-line for £8.99 from Feel Unique).
Yes, just when their Aqua Laque is the new big thing – I’ve finally got the original version. And I really, really love it. It feels weightless on the lips and gives a gorgeous matte wash of colour. I’ve chosen the shade 01 personne ne rouge which is a beautiful red. Stay tuned for a detailed review and lip swatches.

Another product I’ve been meaning to get for a while but never did since I have so many berry and plum lipsticks in myRead More
Kevin Aucoin’s Bloody Gorgeous set is…. Well, let’s face it, it’s bloody gorgeous! Those vampy lips and nails are to die for. In fact, all six products are. They are said to be the brand’s most iconic ones. And this is definitely a timeless and elegant beauty.
And we are talking about:Read More
Rouge Bunny Rouge re-launched all their lipsticks and I have already showed a preview here but it’s time to take a closer look.
I was sent all five shades from the Sheer Lipsticks Succulence of Dew range, and here they are.
It is interesting how I was recently reading about a “lipstick wardrobe” that every girl should have, and I think that RBR nailed it with their shade selection. Here we go…
MUSINGS – “Wet effect, medium transparency, natural pinky rose”
This is a such a pretty and fresh every day colour. It is a perfect balance of nude, peach and pink – would go with just any makeup look.
PERFUME OF HIS GAZE – “Wet effect, medium transparency, cool toned rose taupe”
Surprisingly this was my most worn shade. It will be aRead More
