It’s time for June’s favourites, and somehow this time it is all about Clarins. I have bought quite a few products from the brand and have been sent some samples, and most products were incredible. After all it is one of my favourite brands for a reason. There are also two beauty tools, self tanning drops and bath salts.
Here we go.
Let’s start with makeup, as there are only two products that really stood out to me. Technically three, but two are the same product just different shades. Clarins Blush & Bronzing Compact (review and swatches) my love for this bronzer is still going strong. Now that I have a tan it looks amazing on, warms up the complexion and adds some definition.
As for the Clarins Waterproof Eyeshadow Shimmering Cream Colour (review and swatches) they are phenomenal, as I’ve already said. Extremely long-lasting and incredibly beautiful on the eyes. Just make sure you don’t apply too much, as they can look a bit dry. I’ve been wearing 03 Silver Taupe at the end of May and beginning of June when I still had a very pale complexion but now 04 Copper Brown is my favourite. It looks perfect now, am I a bronze goddess already?

I have to say that I am still loving all of my favourites from April but here are some more products that I would like to add. Four makeup items and three beauty.
I did not expect this first product to make it to my favourites, as I have been neglecting all my bronzers for some time now, and I have tonnes. But I really like this new Clarins bronzer from their summer collection. It is called Bronzing & Blush Compact (full review coming up soon), as it adds warmth and that subtle sun-kissed effect to the face; you can use each shade separately or mix them all together. The other day when I was wearing it one of my best male friends told me that whatever I have on my cheeks – it looks amazing, and makes me look beautiful, and it was this bronzer. Yes, some of my poor male friends know things like that.
Speaking of glow, I have started
piling on using my Mary Lou Manizer from theBalm again. It gives the most gorgeous sheen to the face, and makes me look decent even when I barely sleep due to all the deadlines. Get it! Seriously, if you love a good highlighter, you need this in your life.
I have been using Max Factor Voluptuous False Lash Effect Mascara allRead More
Regular readers will know my obsession with hand creams, here is actually a post about my top 5 from last year, and I should probably write an updated version at some point.

I am a huge believer in a hand cream, and I always have one in my handbag, always. It is a necessity in colder months to protect the skin, to moisturise and nourish it. Also, we all know – the way your hands look can give away your age. And I personally can’t stand dried out skin. Applying hand cream is a pure relaxing little luxury, especially whenRead More
Can you believe that tomorrow is September already? Where did the time go? Yeah, I do realize that I say this almost every month. Actually, August was probably the best month for me this year so far so I am kind of sad that it’s over…
So, what beauty products I’ve been loving this month?
I have to start with shimmering body oils. I am sorry for going on, and on about them. But I am such a die hard fan that I am convinced that every girl needs one in her life. It is a
life game changer! A good oil moisturises the skin and you get that polished and glossy look the models rock in the magazines. I love Omorovicza and Clarins, but there are cheaper options out there, too.
One more products that I won’t shut up about is the Aromathepary Assosiates Deep Relax Bath and Shower Oil (review). In fact, some of my friends associate this scent with me at this point. This is the best product for relaxing. If you don’t believe in aromatherapy – wait until you try this one. I know that it is not the cheapest one but it will last for ages.
I also have to mention Nivea Extended Moisture, Body Lotion, Dry to Very Dry Skin, as it is a brilliant body moisturizer. Unfortunately, I don’t have a bottle any more so couldn’t include it in the photo. But I do promise to write a review soon.
Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm (review). I’ve decided to go back to this simple cleanser in August, asRead More
My friend Paris B over at My Women Stuff recently posted a chatty feature about the updates from 2015. Can you believe that half of the year is gone?!
In general, I have been very impressed with this year so far, despite it being a very hard time. But at this point I can say that I have learned so much and achieved so many things that I’ve always wanted. I have a lot of goals and plans for the next six months of 2015, as well. Plus, I’ve realized how blessed I am to have such amazing friends and family that are always there for me.
But, back to makeup, Paris listed some questions, so I thought why not answering them here:
Your favourite foundation?
Recently it was all about Clarins HydraQuench Tinted Moisturizer (review) and Peter Thomas Roth CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Complexion Corrector (review) the first one is like skincare and foundation two-in-one, and the second one is like SPF and foundation. Both are perfect for summer, they feel light, non-heavy or greasy.
What sucky product have you used recently that we should all avoid?
Luckily, I haven’t used anything I disliked in quite some time.
Is there a skincare product you love love love?
I’d choose Ella Bache Vitamin Radiance Cream and Balance Me Radiance Rose Face Oil – theyRead More
