January 2016 Beauty Favourites

The first month of 2016 is already behind us. How does it feel? Was it a good one? Are you ready for the rest of 2016? Do you stick to your resolutions? ūüėČ

It was a pretty good month beauty-wise for me, and here are the products I’ve been loving:

Beauty

Nivea Nourishing Body Lotion For Very Dry Skin and a shower cream from this line. My Dad (!) actually got these two for me for Christmas, and I am really touched that he actually got the right products for my skin type. I usually take them with me when I go swimming but use them on a daily basis, too.  I love how soft and smooth my skin feels afterwards, and how nice it smells. Considering how quickly I go through body creams and lotions it is nice to have something budget-friendly, as well.

Jo Malone Red Roses Cologne

I honestly don’t understand how could I miss the fact that Jo Malone discontinued Vanilla & Anise (and WHY would they do it?) so I am left with a half bottle only. ¬†At least I can still get this scent. Red Roses is definitely not for everyone, some of my friends laugh that I smell like a rose jam whenever I use it, and it may be a bit weird to smell like this when you wear a lot of black, leather, and red… but hey, life is supposed to be fun. I also have a candle which I adore as much as the cologne.

CND Solar Oil

I was getting gel manicure for about 6 months non-stop but once I was too busy to go to my manicurist who is absolutely amazing but works far away from my home (and work, too), and had to rush to the nearest salon as my nails were looking disgusting at that point. I can’t believe how

November 2015 Beauty Favorites

It is that time of the month when we are talking about favourites, again. Can you believe that it is the last month of the year now? Speaking of December, I will be extremely busy so probably there will be a lack of posts, although there are tonnes of products I want to share about with you, but I will try to keep you updated on Instagram.

And here is the list of products I have been loving in November.

November 2015 Beauty Favourites Makeup4all

Makeup

theBalm the Manizer Sisters palette

I’ve had this palette on my wish list ever since I’ve found out about it and finally got in November, and it is all kinds of dreamy, soft buttery textures that creates glow and luminosity, your “winter’s skin” best friend in a pan. I will write a detailed review this week, so stay tuned.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Kiss Elixir Lip Balm (review)

This lip balm is one of my favourites because it just works, nice formula, feels lovely on the lips, and it heals the cracked skin or prevents it from happening. This is my second tube. I squeeze out some on my finger, and also apply what is left on my cuticles.

 Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liners, one in East End Snob

Yes, I did get this lip liner to see why everyone loves it so much. I love Rimmel lip products anyway so this felt like a nice addition to my makeup bag. East End Snob works great for making your lips look fuller in a non-obnoxious way, there is not need to overdraw them like there is no tomorrow.

Clarins Eyebrow Pencil in  02 Light Brown

Considering that I have been using this eye brow product exclusively on my brows for the last several months I am surprised that I’ve never mentioned it. I like the texture which is not too soft so you get control over the application but at the same time it is not harsh; the bets formula. The spoolie on the other end is very helpful, too.

Skincare

Vichy Aqualia Thermal Rich  (for dry skin) and Elemental Herbology Vital Glow Overnight Resurfacing Creams.

October 2015 Beauty Favourites

October is one of my favourite months and I am kind of sad that it is over already but it was a great one despite the fact that I was ill for over a week.

I’ve decided that before talking about my beauty favourites, I’d mention some other things I like/enjoy:

  • I’ve finally went to my first swimming class after planning on going for months. Since I’ve got sick the next day I haven’t been back yet but I will be. Next week.
  • Downton Abbey. That 1920’s style…And I refuse to accept that it’s the last season.
  • Since I was ill for a week at home, I’ve got time to read and it was wonderful. I was mostly reading cultural and philosophical articles (yeah, I do love such topics) but here is my reading list.
  • And finally – Pinterest. This has to be my favourite social media, I am always browsing/pinning/saving photos.

Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in Alluring Rose (review and swatches)

This is probably my favourite launch of the year. Seriously, I could not love these blushes more than I do, and I feel like I have been going on, and on about them. They have the creamiest and softest texture, blend beautifully and have that all-in-one effect. ¬†You don’t really need any highlighter or sculpting, just this. And

September 2015 Beauty Favourites

It’s time for monthly favourites! And this time I’ve decided to mention only those products that I have been really loving. Somehow I have re-discovered¬†17 Sheer Moisture Foundation¬†which is now discontinued but which has been my base of choice lately, as it gives that beautiful light and glowing finish.

The other product  which is not shown is Garnier HandRepair Intensive Restoring Hand Cream because I have used it all up. And, just like the body cream, this one is brilliant.Works wonders on my very dry hands and feet, it improved the condition [of my skin] dramatically, moisturized and nourished.

Clarins Joli Rouge Lipstick in 738 Royal Plum (review and lip swatches)

I have an old version of the lipstick but I will have a few samples of the new Joli Rouge to review and compare them for you. This is an amazing product! The sheer formula can be built up,  or worn as a barely-there stain.  And this the most beautiful dark plum, looks gorgeous on the lips, have been wearing it non-stop.

The only other makeup product is the new Rouge Bunny Rouge Naked Disguise Glide Concealer.¬†And this, without a doubt, is now one of my favourite concealers ever. The texture is light ¬†but at the same time it transforms the under eye area by brightening and covering the dark circles. It doesn’t look or feel heavy and doesn’t set into the fine lines. I like the brand’s description “your skin but better”, and I agree.

Skincare

REN Evercalm Gentle Cleansing Milk

I can’t believe that I still
