I was away for ten days visiting my family and friends and I did not use Internet or my phone 95% of the time. It was the best decision ever, as I could truly enjoy the holidays and now I am back to work/blog/life well rested and motivated.
I was catching up on some blogs I follow and loved reading “The Best of 2012″ features, I should definitely post it myself. But in the meanwhile, here are the makeup products I had with me, and some of them are my all time favourites actually.
Omorovicza Complexion Perfector BB SPF 20 which I took in a small pot helped my skin to look flawless, I’ve also had my trusted Touche Eclat by YSL with me, as well, as Jouer’s Age Repairing Concealer in 3 Cameo.
Sienna X’s Cream To Powder Bronzer & Illuminator is a product I haven’t featured before but I do like it a lot and will definitely post about it soon.
First of all, I had my Benefit’s eye brow pencil, as I am never without it. Anastasia’s Genius Top Coat and three of my all time favourite eye shadows: Rouge Bunny Rouge Long Lasting Eye Shadow in Bejewelled Skylark, Daniel Sandler Polychromatic Eyeshadow in Lava andRead More

I have quite a few red lipsticks and I do love a good red! Today I want to show you one of my favourites.
Lancome’s L’Absolu Rouge (£21) in 160 Rouge Hypnose is simply perfection! This has to be my favourite lipstick that I’ve tried recently (apart from Lush, will tell you about it later).
I really love the design, in fact, I think this may be my favourite luxury lipstick design. It is very elegant and classic, the magnet on the cap is a great detail, too.
The texture and the shade are fantastic! L’Absolu Rouge is soft and smooth, applies like a dream and gives a beautiful colour pay-off.
Rouge Hypnose is not a very bright in-your-face-red and at the same time it is not a sheer, barely-there balmy red. This makes it a perfect lipstick both for day time andRead More
Dior’s Christmas 2012 makeup collection Grand Bal is Tyen’s interpretation of Dior grand balls that were so popular in the past. This collection is all about gold and red.
And, although the star product of the collection is the Grand Bal palette, I personally really love the Diorific nail polishes and lipsticks, so chic and classy.
This collection includes:
Palette Grand Bal £60, two pearly eye shadows and two glosses.
Diorific Vernis (£20): 901 Diva, 751 Marilyn, 207 Diorling, and 011 Lady.
Diorific Lipstick (£25) in 020 Victoire, 024 Liz, 037 Diorling, 038 Diva, 039 Lady and 040 Marilyn.

Here a preview of Lancome’s Christmas 2012 makeup collection Happy Holidays which is all about the gold, red and sequins, very festive!
This collection was actually inspired by Paris, where, according to Lancome, “ illuminations resonate with enchanting shimmer”.
This collection includes:
Lancôme Ombre Hypnôse Mono (£18) in Fil d’Or, Fil d’Argent (on promo) and Fil d’Bronze.
These come in a beautiful sparkly compact and the eye shadows themselves are woven like a mesh fabric. It is promised they these give a beautiful metallic effect and should last up to 16 hours. They do look promising, I think the texture and formula should be great.
Lancôme Ombre Les Paillettes aux Yeux (£17.50) in À la Belle Étoile and Lumières de Paris.
Shimmering loose powder to apply directly to lids or on top of other products for a glowy effect.
Lancôme Le Crayon Khôl (£16) in Jazzy Taupe and France in a Glance
Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge (£21) inRead More
