Summer Must Have: Shimmer Body Oils. 2019 Edition

I am a huge fan of shimmer body oils for summer and have been for a while.  Why? Simply because they make your skin look polished. And don’t worry, you will not end up looking like a greasy disco ball,  shimmer oil for your body is like highlighter for your face. It just makes everything look dewy and glowing, in a good way. Not to mention that it’s not only a visual effect, as the  ingredients in your oil will moisturise, soften and smooth the skin.

While I still remain a huge fan of Omorovicza, you don’t have to spend €70 on it, while it is worth it, in my opinion. So here are three body shimmer oils which caught my attention this summer.

One is brand new, one was around for some time, and the third one just got some new LE shades. Let’s take a look.

SOL DE JANEIRO Glowmotions, £35/ $35 (75ml ) from Cult Beauty and Sephora.

I really loved the Bum Bum cream so would expect these to be incredible, as well.  There are

June 2016 Beauty Favourites

It’s time for  June’s favourites, and somehow this time it is all about Clarins. I have bought quite a few products from the brand and have been sent some samples, and most products were incredible. After all it is one of my favourite brands for a reason. There are also two beauty tools, self tanning drops and bath salts.

Here we go.

Let’s start with makeup, as there are only two products that really stood out to me. Technically three, but two are the same product just different shades. Clarins Blush & Bronzing Compact  (review and swatches) my love for this bronzer is still going strong. Now that I have a tan it looks amazing on, warms up the complexion and adds some definition.

As for the Clarins Waterproof Eyeshadow Shimmering Cream Colour (review and swatches) they are phenomenal, as I’ve already said. Extremely long-lasting and incredibly beautiful on the eyes. Just make sure you don’t apply too much, as they can look a bit dry. I’ve been wearing  03 Silver Taupe at the end of May and beginning of June when I still had a very pale complexion but now  04 Copper Brown is my favourite. It looks perfect now, am I a bronze goddess already?
