I love writing Monthly Beauty Favourites posts, they make me analyse what products I used the most, and loved the best. I am also always happy when you find a good product through my recommendations 😉
Not gonna lie, October was a rough month for me, a lot of stress and lack of sleep. Most of the time I don’t bother with a good base that much, but this month I was constantly “rocking” dark circles, horrible skin-tone and even some breakouts. I just looked very tired in general.
So to imitate the “I-am-doing-great-thanks” skin I was using my favourite Pearl Shimmering Skin Perfector by BECCA all over the face as a base to give me some glow. Since I have very dry skin, it did not look greasy or shiny on me, in fact, I loved the effect.
Then I followed with Clarins’ Tinted Moisturizer, which is one of my favourite products for face, ever. Read the review to find out why it is that special.
If you read this post, you probably know that I have been ignoring the blushers lately. So, of course I had to includeRead More
Being a huge HydraQuench Clarins range fan, I was extremely excited about the Tinted Moistirizer from the line which came out recently.
It’s been the only “base” product that I’ve been wearing for the last two weeks. I also included it in my May beauty favourites.
It is a light and non-greasy or oily texture, which is exactly what I need in summer. It doesn’t feel heavy and I don’t get that horrible feeling, as if my skin can’t breathe and I need to take off my makeup as soon, as possible.
Being Clarins, the formula includes skin beneficial ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid, whichRead More
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.
I 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 itRead More
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 myRead More
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…
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.
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 andRead More
