My Personal Holiday Wish List

Since I am posting all those Holiday Gift Guides, it seemed like a cool idea to share my  own wish list. And this is not only beauty but pretty much everything that I want.  I would actually really want to know what is on top of your wish list this year, so do share.

Books

What I Saw: Reports from Berlin, 1920-1933 by Joseph Roth,  £6 from Amazon UK and $16.95 from Amazon. I read some of his reports about Vienna, and loved them. So the ones about Berlin are on my wish list, too.

Appetites: A Cookbook by Anthony Bourdain, £31.50 from Amazon UK and $22.50 from Amazon. I am a big fan of Mr. Bourdain, and says it all. Also, I love cooking.

Pretty Iconic: A Personal Look at the Beauty Products that Changed the World by Sali Hughes, £12.50 from Amazon UK and $14 from Amazon. I don’t really read that many beauty related websites/books these days, but I did read Sali’s first book, and would like this one, too.

Revlon Colorstay Liquid Eye Pen Review and Swatches

After Rouge Bunny Rouge changed the nib of my all-time favourite Raven Glaze Lacquer liner a quest for a new option began. And, although I like using really thin pen eye liners (or gel ones) on others, I am very particular about the ones I use on myself.

I have been loving ArtDeco Long Lasting Liquid Liner 01 a lot but it was time to get something new so I purchased Revlon Colorstay Liquid Eye Pen about two months ago.

Revlon Colorstay Liquid Eye Pen Review and SwatchesAnd it is a good liner, I have nothing bad to say about it. I did enjoy using it on a daily basis. It stayed on for the whole working day without smudging (my eye lids are not oily), the liner was very easy to apply and it did not drag the skin.

ArtDeco Long Lasting Liquid Liner 01 Black Review and Swatches. Rave

Since I use eye liner almost on a daily basis, I have very high demands for it. I have been using Rouge Bunny Rouge for years, until they’ve changed the nib.  After considering different options: reading reviews and swatching in stores – I’ve decided to try ArtDeco Long Lasting Liquid Liner. 

ArtDeco Long Lasting Liquid Liner 01 Black Review and SwatchesI like this German brand a lot, their products are always high quality and  are not expensive.

And this liner is absolutely brilliant! I have been using it since February non-stop, it was even in my monthly favourites, and want to share my impression.  Easy to use, this is the exact nib I was looking for, I personally don’t like those ultra thin ones. The colour is ultra black and intense. The formula is great, it glides on like a dream without dragging the skin.

Clarins Gloss Prodige in 09 Water Lily (review and lip swatches)

Back in the days I was singing praises to  Gloss Prodige, and recently I’ve re-discovered my love for it. It has a nice scent, brilliant moisturising formula and the most beautiful nudish pink shade. This is probably my favourite lip gloss that I own.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Eye Shadow Palette Raw Garden in Antigo (review and swatches)

I have been using this palette almost every day, and  recently wrote a detailed review about it, you get four eye shadows with a unique sateen matt light texture which feels weightless on but still has a nice pigmentation. The

Rouge Bunny Rouge Raven Glaze Lacquer Liner. New Nib

Regular readers know my big love  for Rouge Bunny Rouge’s Raven Glaze, a glossy ultra black eye liner. Yes, it is not matte or shiny, it is like a black gloss!

I was actually intrigued  when I found out that they re-vamped it because I couldn’t imagine how it could be even better. I actually have a sample of the new version, so here is what’s the deal.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Raven Glaze Lacquer Liner New TipIt is all about the nib! Now it is very thin  and precise, you can easily create even the most delicate line, fill the gaps between the lashes or create a sharp cat eye. And, of course, you can make the line thicker, if you wish.

But please keep in mind that
