August 2017 Beauty Favourites

Here we are again, talking about the monthly favourites!

Beauty

Dove Nourishing Secrets Relaxing Ritual Shower Gel (Dove is available from Amazon and Amazon UK)

This shower product  with lavender and rosemary extract is pretty similar to L’Occitane Aromachologie Relaxing Shower Gel but just for a fraction of the price. It smells incredible, and does not feel drying on the skin. Being a huge lavender fan, I had to have it. Especially I loved using it during my holidays this month, very relaxing.

Nivea Intimo Wash Lotion Fresh

Had to get this mini while I was away on a holiday, as well, as I forgot mine, and it just reminded me how important a right gel for the intimate hygiene is. This Nivea one is gentle yet effective.

Jo Malone Colognes (You can buy Jo Malone from Selfridges,  Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom.)

I am really into my Jo Malone colognes these days, especially the mini ones, they smell so incredible. I love mixing and matching them, too. I need new scents from the brand now.

BECCA Makeup Collection for Summer 2015

Regular readers know that BECCA is one of my favourite beauty brands ever, their releases are always spot on! Here is a preview of the brands newest offerings.

Ombre Rouge Eye Palette, $40

Five matte eye shadows with warm and cool undertones, infused with green coffee oil, can be used wet or dry.

Ultimate Full Lash Perfecting Mascara, $25

“A mascara with double the brush for twice the lash volume.” The dual-bristle brush and the formula of the mascara give your lashes length and volume.

Luminous Body Perfecting Mousse, $34

Now, this is a genius product. According to BECCA, it is a skin perfector that “conceals imperfections and seamlessly evens skintone with subtle radiance and true bronze color.”

Illamasqua just launched their newest makeup collection with some great basic products, like eye and lip pencils, nude lipstick and blush; and a trendy contouring palette.

The products are:

Sculpting Palette (Contouring and Highlighting Palette), £44

It includes six  versatile powder shades. Here are the tips on the best way to use it: ” Using the Contour Brush, apply Cirrus to the highest points of the face to subtlety highlight features. With the same brush, gently create an under-shadow by applying Nimbus to the hollow of the cheek and down the sides of the nose. Follow by blending Heroine (light to medium skin-tones) or Create (medium to deep skin-tones) over the under-shadow created with Nimbus for a more realistic finish. Achieve a cooler tone to your contour by mixing in Nimbus; or create a warmer effect by mixing in Steal. Illuminate your highlighted areas by layering Rush down the bridge of the nose, and above the cheek bones, blending towards the hair line.”
