Tag: monthly favourites
I don’t have that many favourites this month but I really love each and every one a lot.
I am huge fan of Givenchy Noir Couture Mascara, and I really like this one, too. This ball-shaped mascara has been around for a while but I have tried it only this year and only because I’ve bought it by accident (did not return it because the lady at Givenchy told me it is her favourite). And I am happy I’ve kept it, as it is great. It takes time to get used to this shape but once you do – you can get incredible results: think, long and black lashes. I also like the fact that this mascara stays on without smudging all day. The only thing I’d say is that this is not a I-am-in-a-rush product, it does take some time to build up the effect but it is worth it, in my opinion.

First of all, how is it December already? I mean how is it the last month of 2016?! Are you excited for 2017? I know I am!
When I have gathered the beauty favourites to take a photo, I have realised that most of them are the same products I’ve featured in October so here are only the ones which I haven’t.
Before we start, I would like to mention some other things I really loved in November which are beauty related, too.
Photos from my Insta
Book – Branded Beauty by Mark Tungate (from Amazon and Amazon UK). I think everyone who is interested in beauty and brands should read it, the book is packed with interesting facts and quotes. I personally really enjoyed the history of so many companies and the explanation about the marketing tips and tricks.
Mr. Selfridge TV Series. (Amazon and Amazon UK). I’ve had this on my to-watch list for a long time already but gave it a go only last weekend, and it is great. I love how it shows the pre -WWI history of the legendary Selfridges. Imagine that it was unthinkable to sell beauty products over the counter back in the days for obvious reasons, it is very well shown in Season 1 Episode 3.
Sparkles. I have to admit, I just have to have anything sparkling these days to brighten up the grey and dark November days, which feel like forever nights actually.
I also simply have to include
I honestly can’t believe that it is September next week, it seems like it was June only yesterday. But this was an absolutely amazing month, and here are the beauty products that really stood out to me.
Clarins Joli Rouge Lipstick in 738 Royal Plum (review and swatches)
Clarins revamped their Joli Rouge line (as seen here), and now it looks even more chic, and the formula feels even more comfortable. Royal Plum is the shade to die for, it is a must have for Autumn! I have to confess that oxblood was the colour of the month for me. Max Factor Glossfinity Nail polish in 185 Ruby Fruit was the shade I wore on my toes all month
I have to say that I am loving exactly the same beauty and makeup products that I have been loving in June, I should only add a few extras. If you can still get those Clarins eye shadows and bronzer – do it! I use both almost every single day, and don’t want anything else. In fact, two of my girlfriends bought them after they’ve tried mine and got obsessed, as well.
The love for coffee body scrub, Color Wow hair Shellac and the bronzing drops is still going strong, too.
But here are the products that I would like to add to the list of favourites.
L’Oreal Glam Shine in Dazzle 201 Sparkle Shower (review and lip swatches)
It seems like this was the only lip product I have been loving this month besides the lip balm. I’ve bought this gloss last July and almost used it up. It smells delicious, feels nice on the lips and looks ridiculously pretty with that multi-dimensional glitter effect. Can’t get enough of it. And it is cheap, too.
Rouge Bunny Rouge Long-lasting Brow Liner ALCHEMY in Antimony 088
Rouge Bunny Rouge finally launched their eye brow collection which consists of four products: two eye brow pencils and two eye brow gels. I will write a detailed review with swatches soon but today I want to tell you about the Antimony eye brow pencil which is slim and allows incredible precision. The shade is not warm which is perfect and the formula is soft but not smudgy. It was worth the wait!
Garnier SkinActive Oil-Infused Micellar Cleansing Water
I’ve used up several bottles of the original Garnier micellar water and finally bought this one in July, and I am loving it. It cleanses the skin really well, without leaving an oily residue. I also find
Can you actually believe that it is May, the fifth month of the year?! Time flies, it feels as if it was 1st of January only yesterday. And this month I actually have quite a few products, including some amazing new discoveries.
Max Factor Glossfinity Nail Polish in 85 Cerise (review and swatches)
I have already finished a bottle of this, and am going through my second one, and I am wearing this, as I type, too. Such a gorgeous vibrant, juicy and glossy warm-toned red, it brightens up any look, and (almost) any mood. I am a fan.
For complexion I have been using these two products almost daily: Diorskin Nude Skin-Glowing Make-Up in Ivory (review and face swatches) Rouge Bunny Rouge Naked Disguise Concealer in Castalia.
Dior’s foundation is simply brilliant, it is a re-discovery for me. I like the coverage it gives and the finish, it is not matte but not too dewy either. The shade, Ivory is the lightest in the range, and looks great even on my
currently greenish pale and tired complexion. As for the concealer, I plan on writing a detailed feature about it soon. Surprisingly, I have already used half of the tube, and the love is going strong. It gives just the kind of coverage I like – the formula is not thick but it brightens up the under eye area.
Other products I have been using all the time are Inglot Sculpting HD Powder in 504 (review) which I talk about non-stop, as it is my favourite product for adding
