New Beauty Purchases

I haven’t posted about my new beauty and makeup purchases in a while, although I did feature them on Instargam, so here is a round-up.

Let’s start with beauty, I’ve actually got three products from Kiehl’s.

Original Musk Bath and Shower Liquid Body Cleanser which I’ve got after reading all the raves from Sandra, and for some reason I was expecting a more intense scent but I still like it.

I’ve also decided to finally try the hyped up concentrates – Midnight Recovery Concentrate and Morning Reviving Concentrate. I will definitely write detailed reviews later on, but so far I can say that on my very dry skin I can’t use them on their own, as I often do with serums/oils, I have to use a cream on top.

Finally, beauty wise, although I did not buy this product myself, and it was a gift from a friend, I’ve decided to mention it, as it is such a  cool one – Tromborg Aromatherapy Body Oil Lavender Rose Tree (which I have already included in my favourites). From the motto ‘Scandinavian mood’ to luxurious packaging, nice formula and divine scent – it is as good as it gets.

As for makeup, it was all about Chanel, YSL, Smith & Cult and

AW16 New Blushes: Paul & Joe, Dolce & Gabbana and Chantecaille

I have to admit that I haven’t been wearing blush during the summer at all, but now that it is Autumn, I kind of want some colour! this is why I have been browsing my collection looking for some old favourites, and also browsing the new launches looking for anything beautiful and  exciting to share with you.

Here are three beauties that caught my attention:

SS16 Makeup for Face, Lips and Eyes: YSL, Illamasqua and Marc Jacobs

I am sorry that there were no updates for several days, work and life in general just got too busy, but I am back with yet another selection of the new products for lips, eyes and face that caught my attention. This time it is all about Illamasqua,  Marc Jacobs and YSL.

YSL Couture Variation 10-Color Expert Eye Palette, $95 from  Bergdorf Goodman and £49 from Harvey Nichols.

They say you can never have to many nude eye shadows, and this one looks gorgeous. Inspired by  the fabric swatch sheets of Yves Saint Laurent’s creative studio, there are 10 neutral shades which come in different finished; housed in an elegant and sleek packaging.

It looks like Illamasqua are finally back to their roots with

Rouge Bunny Rouge Glide Concealer NAKED DISGUISE Review and Swatches. Rave

As weird, as it sounds I don’t really care about dark under eye circles or bags that much. Although I understand the corrector-concealer-powder concept for the under eye area, that is something you’d almost never see me doing.  In fact YSL’s Touche Elcat is the only product I have ever used up which I am using under the eyes.

All I care about is a light coverage and some light reflection.  This is obviously, my personal preference, and I do use a lot of products when I am doing someone else’s makeup.

This is why I am excited to share about one of my favourite Rouge Bunny Rouge products.  Glide Concealer NAKED DISGUISE which is described as “bare skin but better”. And that is exactly that!

Rouge Bunny Rouge Glide Concealer NAKED DISGUISE Review and SwatchesThis is my favourite under eye product, ever.  It feels really light on the skin and gives that very natural light-to-medium coverage, and you can still see the texture of the skin. It  is enough to make you look fresher and
