A lot of readers told me that they love reading personal posts, so here is one, for a change. This time it’s 10 random beauty facts about me, but next time I can write random facts about myself. I love reading those about people that I follow, so maybe that is something you’d like to read about me, too.
So, here we go
1. Recently I have been loving only red(ish) nail polishes, I even wrote a feature about it. Whenever I put on something else, it feels “wrong”. In fact, I am giving away some of my varnishes to one girl I know who is very into nail art.
2. Although I have tonnes of eye pencils and liners, 90% of the time I will use Lancome’s Le Crayon Khol in Brun Noir. For me – it is perfection.
3. I am
almost useless when it comes to hair styling. A good friend of mine is a hair stylist, and she showed me different ways to style my hair, and gave me so many tips. It looks so easy when she does it, but when I try – the results are not even close.
4. Most of the time I just wash my hair with a shampoo and use several drops of oil through the ends. Yes, I don’t like conditioners, and rarely use hair masks. When I am in the mood, I can use SachaJuan’s Ocen Mist, but then my (male) friends tell me that I need to brush it. Is it a myth that men like “I just got out of bed hair”? HmmmRead More
I plan on writing a post about my favourite beauty products of 2013 in New Year, but thought that I would still write about my December 2013 favourites, since there are several very nice products I’d like to share about.
Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Soft Brunette (review)
This has been a favourite every single month ever since I’ve got it. It is perfect, I only wish the shade was a bit cooler, but that is fine.
Rouge Bunny Rouge Raven Glaze Lacquer Liner (review)
It seems like I have been using this eye liner almost every day. It is super easy to use and leaves a beautiful glossy black line.
I like this blush combo so much that I even dedicated a post to it! You can get a natural sheer wash of colour with ArtDeco, and add dimension and intensity with tatre. Plus such layering means long-staying power.
Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Lip Gloss in Oyster (review)
I’ve decided to re-discover some old favourites, and this is one of them. I love shimmery cool toned glosses from time to time, and this gloss from Bobbi Brown is uber gougers on the lips, especially paired withRead More
I really love Clarins lip products and this one is not an exception. This lipstick, in the hottest shade of AW, goes on smoothly and feels nice on the lips. The formula is lovely, it is non-drying at all.
Royal Plum has a satin finish and a beautiful coverage, it looks great even with one layer, just make sure you apply it evenly. By theRead More
Here is a preview of yet another Fall 2013 makeup release and this time it’s Smashbox. The collection is called Fade To Black which sounds pretty cool, if you ask me.
And there six products to choose from:
Be Legendary – Fade to Black Lipstick in Cognac and Black Cherry
Fade to Black Waterproof Eyeshadow Liner Black Gold and Blackest Black
Fade to Black – Fade Out Photo Op Eyeshadow Palette: SoftRead More
I had to get the new Kate Moss matte lipsticks for Rimmel which are new for Autumn. I really love the original Kate Moss lipsticks so had high hopes for these.
I have got the berry 107 shade (surprise-surprise). And, oh my goodness, it is awesome!
First of all, the design is great, you can never go wrong with red and black, in my opinion.
They go on smoothly, the colour applies evenly and opaque with only one coat. Although this is a matte lipstick, it does not look very flat and chalky on the lips and does not dry them out. The staying power is decent, as well.
Here is how it looks like on the skin.
It is a beautiful berry colour which is not very dark and will be perfect for those who want to embrace such shade butRead More
