My Top Five Base Products

I have re-organized a lot of my makeup/skincare/body care/ hair care products this month. Yes, I am still trying to think of the best storage for my nail polishes.

It was a great thing to do since I a) re-discovered a lot of products b) gave away cosmetics that I don’t use any more to my aunt c) it’s just nice to have everything neat and tidy.

Makeup4all Foundations Primers Highlighters ConcealersI actually like keeping some of my most-used products in the Jo Malone packaging, the classic cream and black boxes fit  enough of products and look nice in my flat.  Above you can see  my personal most used primers-bases-concealers.

Showing you my top “base” products seemed like a nice idea, so here we go:

Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer in Ivory (review and face swatches)

I did not like it that much at first, but now I absolutely adore it. It gives a good coverage for a tinted moisturizer, and is a great product for the days when (you &) your skin is tired and lacks a glow, as it

Last month I’ve shared my top 5 picks from Illamasqua and this month I want to share the products from Rouge Bunny Rouge that I personally love the most. As you can imagine, it was very hard but here is what I’ve chosen. Tinted Moisturiser Sketches on Water This one was easy, it is probably my favourite base ever! And there are so many reasons for that: the texture is very light and it looks like a second skin. It gives a light coverage and doesn’t enhance any dry parches on my face even during the winter. You can read more details about it here. Original Skin Blush For Love of Roses in Florita Yes, I have included a powder blush and not cream or liquid, it’s probably a shocker for regular readers. This is probably my favourite powder blusher out of all that I have and I reach for it a lot. The colour is perfection, the texture and finish are beautiful, the blush blends nicely into the skin and stays on pretty well. See my full review. Kiss Elixir If I had to pick my

January 2013 Beauty Favourites

I used to write about my monthly favourites back in 2009, I think, but somehow stopped doing that. So I thought why not giving it another go in 2013?

So here is the list of my January 2013 Favourites and this time I’ve chosen only makeup, not to make a huge list. But next time I will probably add some of my beauty favourites, too. What do you think?

So here we go…

Lips

If I could choose only one favourite product of January – that would be Clarins Gloss Prodige in 09 Water Lily which is now my favourite lip gloss!  It is  hydrating, smoothing and looks  beautiful on the lips. And it smells delicious, too.

Face

Another product from Clarins would be their Beauty Flash Balm which is a must have for me in winter months, it makes my face look polished and brings back the glow. I also like how the foundation applies afterwards.

Speaking of foundation –  my top pick would be Rouge Bunny Rouge Tinted Moisturizer Sketches on Water. If you have dry skin, I would totally recommend, it blends into the skin and

Weekend Face Of The Day. Vol 1

I’ve stayed most of the Saturday at home as I had guests so wanted to keep it very simple. Here are the products I wore.

Face

Rouge Bunny Rouge’s Tinted Moisturiser Sketches on Water is my latest obsession. It is perfect for winter, it doesn’t enhance any dryness and looks great even on the weather beaten, dehydrated skin! Gives a very natural coverage and people won’t be able to tell that it’s not just your skin.  The coverage is enough for me but you may want to use concealer locally. I use shade Adansonia but you can see my swatches of all shades here.

The brand’s Blush Wand in Rubens is a relatively new product for me but so far I am loving it.

Eyes

Summer is here so it’s time for a light coverage  foundation or, even better, tinted moisturizer. This is why I think it’s a perfect time to tell you about the Rouge Bunny Rouge’s Tinted Moisturiser Sketches on Water (£46).

It comes in three shades and I had a sample of each shade which was enough to properly try the product and swatch the shades for you.

The shades that available are:

  • ADANSONIA, Transparent wash of pale milky beige
  • SEQUOIA, Transparent wash of pinkish beige
  •  QUERCUS, Transparent wash of warm tawny mid-beige

Here is how they look like. I should have taken a photo earlier as there is hardly anything left and the product is a bit dried out (I’ve had it for months) but you can still see how each shade looks like which  is the most important thing here.

As you can imagine, this TM would
