It’s the end of the month, so it means it’s time for April beauty favourites! I really love all the products from the previous “favourite posts” and here is the new selection.
L’Occitane Repairing Shampoo and Conditioner for Dry & Damaged Hair
I’ve been absolutely in love with this duo from L’Occitane, although my hair is not dry or damaged. It’s an absolute pleasure to use, as it cleanses well, leaves the hair looking nice and smells amazing.
There is not that much left, so I have already ordered some Philip B hair care products, but I will definitely re-purchase these at some point in the future. Read more about them here.
Rimmel Lycra PRO Nail Polish in Blue Vogue
I have been wearing this nail polish for more than a week this month, it is absolutely gorgeous, see the swatch, and also long-lasting.
Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush in 09 Soft Murano
This blush is a great proof that high quality products are not necessarily expensive. Miracle Touch was my most used blusher this month. I have two shades and adore them both. I should probablyRead More
The list of my favourite makeup products of 2012 was too long already for me to include nail products, too.So here is a separate one.
I’ve decided to be very strict with myself and choose only two nail polishes, one for SS and the other for AW as, otherwise, I would just go on, and on…
OPI Every Month Is Oktoberfest
This is a gorgeous colours, when I saw the promo photo, I knew I had to get it. But when I saw the first swatches on-line, I’ve ordered it as soon as it was available. OPI have a lot of beautiful complex dark nail polishes and Every Month Is Oktoberfest is one of them. I wear mine a lot, in fact, I have it on as I type. See it on my nails here.
Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Nomad
And this was my favourite SS nail polish, such a perfect jade colour. There are a lot of variations of jade from different brands, but I think this is my favourite. Plus I am a big fan of Illamasqua’s nail varnishes. By the way, I had it on my toes during my summer holiday. And here is manicure with this shade.
As for other products, I have to mentionRead More
I actually love seeing what products other people finished and what products they re-purchased (even more). So I thought I’d show you some of the products that I have finished.
Although I love trying new products very much, some I re-purchase, as I find them to be amazing. Unfortunately, I have already thrown away most of the packages but here is what is left.
Vichy Dercos Shampooing Treatment Oil Control
I actually really liked this for summer as it cleaned my hair nicely without stripping it. I would re-purchase but I have already ordered a Cowshed shampoo which I’ve wanted to try for a long time already.
Philip Kingsley Body Building Shampoo
Unfortunately, this shampoo did not work for me because my hair got greasy after about 1.5 days which was not good at all. I would try other shampoo from the range but would not get this one again. I am actually taking PK vitamins for hair for the second month already (the course is four months) and I think I can see some improvements already. But will update on that in September.
Two Elemis products
Elemis tranquil Touch Body Polish (review here)
I had to cut the packaging to get every single drop of this product. I have actually purchased the second tube already. Next time I plan to get their mint scrub as it’s the only scrub from the brand I haven’t tried yet. Their Exotic Lime and Ginger Salt Glow is brilliant, too.
Elemis Treat Your Feet Foot Cream (review here)
This has to be the best foot cream I have ever tried! It is very effective and the scent is to die for. Whenever I use it and someone is around, I always get asked about it. And, yes, I have ordered one more tube last week. I highlyRead More
As you know, I have a rule, when top Make-Up Artists rave – I listen and get the product they are singing praises to. This is why I have no idea what took me so long to buy shu uemura eye lash curlers.
My only excuse can be the fact that I had some cheap ones which did not really perform the way I’d love them too so I thought there was no need to buy expensive ones, too.
But, oh boy, I am so glad that I finally got the shu’s curlers! They are absolutely brilliant. I have to say that I’ve been using them for less than a week so far but I can already see that it will be a long-time relationships!
So how they perform?
Now I can see whyRead More
This was supposed to be a guest post for one blog which was never published so I though I’d share it here. I had to pick 5 must-have products that I can’t live without. I’ve written this post in June but I still agree with everything that I wrote even if it was month ago. Only my under-eye concealer preferences are changing from time to time.
1. Lancome Hypnose mascara
Unfortunately my natural lashes are thin and quite short so I can’t live without a good mascara. Hypnose by Lancome works miracles for me. Sometimes I even get asked if I am wearing false lashes!
2. Chanel Glossimer in Mica
Glossimers are my favourite glosses of all times. I absolutely love the formulation of this lip gloss which is pretty thick and some may even find it sticky. I have a lot of different shades but Mica, a light pink with shimmer, is my must have.
3. Lancome Le Crayon Khol in Brun Noir
