Ready or not but it’s time for Summer collections. Time flies! It seems like it was New Year’s Eve only yesterday, and it is (almost) the end of March already.
My other personal favourites are:
Sugar Pop Eye Shadows ($36)
Eye shadow palette with macaroons on the cover, and sugary sweet shades inside would make any girl happy.
The Little Black Book Of Bronzers ( $49)
The brand’s bronzers are amazing, and the idea of a book is just perfect. This is all you’ll ever need in terms of bronzing.
Chocolate Soleil: Antioxidant-rich, cocoa powder-infused matte bronzer that works on all skin tones, perfect for everyday contouring and creating an all-over deep tan.
Milk Chocolate Soleil: A lighter version of Chocolate Soleil that creates a more subtle, all-over warmth, perfect for those with lighter skin tones.
NEW Dark Chocolate Soleil: A darker version of Chocolate Soleil that’s perfect for more sculpted contouring, creating a more dramatic, deep matte bronzed look.
Snow Bunny: Four luminous shades blend together for just the right amount of sun-kissed, natural radiance.
Pink Leopard: Trio of skin-brightening and bronzing pigments that combine for a glorious all-over glow.
Beach Bunny: Custom-blend bronzer combines four sun kissed shades for a skin perfecting, summertime tan any time of year.
Endless Summer: Stay all day universal bronzer creates a

I was surprised when I realized that I never did a feature about Rouge Bunny Rouge When Birds Are Singing Long-Lasting Matt Eye Shadow in Blackpepper Jay, which is among my favourite eye shadows. I even mentioned it back in my August favourites.
I don’t have time or desire to use 4-5 eye shadow shades for my eye makeup on a daily basis, so I appreciate the shades that I can wear on their own and still look nice.
Blackpepper Jay is one of those shades. It is a beautiful cool toned blackened brown, which is described by the brand as semi-opaque.
I have already raved about RBR eye shadows numerous times, but this is the first matte one that I am writing about. But guess what? It is theRead More
Today I’ve decided to keep my makeup minimal, as I will spend most of my time (and money, le segh) choosing the items for my home makeover.
I’ve started with the brand’s Aqua Primer, it has a lovely light texture that smooths the face and doesn’t clog the pores. Then I have applied Benefit’s Erase Paste under the eyes which is brilliant for counteracting the blue tones. I have finished off with Rouge Bunny Rouge’s Flawless face Powder Precious Velvet in Piano Forte. It has a medium coverage and feels light on the skin. I don’t usually use powders but am experimenting with some at the moment.
To give myself some glow, I have dabbed Benefit’s High Beam on the cheek bones, under the brow bone, above the upper lip and on the bridge of the nose. FromRead More
It’s time for August Favourites and this month I have a lot of new and exciting products to share with you.
REN Rosa Centifolia No1 Purity Cleansing Balm
I wanted to get this cleanser, you know how much I love my cleansing balms, for some time already and finally bought it in August. And it is absolutely amazing, I love everything about it ! Will write a detailed review soon, I promise.
REN Omega 3 Night Repair Serum
Another REN product which I have already included in a favourites before and wrote about earlier. It literally saved my face after an almost three day car journey (not sure if I will ever repeat that again, but there are a lot of benefits in travelling by car). It does wonders to my skin, I tell you. I wake up with a glowing complexion, without any dryness or irritation. I am definitely re-purchasing it in the future, as I refuse to be without this product! Holy Grail, for sure.
Avene Very High Protection Emulsion 50+
I really dislike most facial sunscreens as I find mots of them greasy, plus they tend to break me out (and, yes, I do cleanse properly). But this time I’ve decided to tryRead More
