September 2017 Beauty Favourites

I am sorry that I am writing about my September favourites only now but it is better later than never, right?

I love writing these, as it it always great to see what you’ve been loving, beauty wise.

Makeup

Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Soft Brunette (review and swatches)

I have rediscovered this little gem. The colour is spot on for me, and I like the shape of it which allows a very quick but still a precise application.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Blushing Bride (review  and faceswatches)

Love Autumn makeup, all the berry and wine shades, and this was the blush of the month, not only I’ve used it  on my friend’s wedding day but I have been also using it on myself pretty much every day. It gives that beautiful flush with a hint of subtle golden shimmer.

A lot of love for tarte lately, this

June 2017 Beauty Favourites

June was a very busy month for me, so I did not discover/rediscover that many beauty products, however, I truly love the ones I am mentioning, they are real gems.

Makeup

Omorovicza Complexion Perfector BB SPF 20 (review and swatches). (Buy it from Cult Beauty, Net a Porter, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom)

This is one of the best base products I have ever used. I am convinced it is some kind of Magyar mágia (Hungarian magic), as it makes the face look flawless, radiant and even younger. As I have mentioned in my original review, my friend was very skeptical about my big love for this, but after trying mine, she ordered one the next day. I personally think that you can’t really go wrong with Omorovicza products in general.  They are very expensive but are worth it.

Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Lashes Mascara and  Colour Chameleon in  Amber Haze. (Buy CT from Cult Beauty, Net A Porter, Nordstrom and Bergdorf Goodman)

I should really write detailed reviews about the Charlotte Tilbury products. Both of these  were a present from a friend, and I am happy she thought of me. Legendary Lashes mascara creates absolutely incredible lashes: full, voluminous and long. Not that many mascaras will give you this effect. However, it smudges like crazy, and unless I use it with a waterproof top coat – I will end up with mascara on my upper lids. But I am kind of ready to forgive this for the effect I get.  Colour Chameleons were

New Beauty Purchases

It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted about the new purchases (not all of them have arrived yet), so here we go.  Most of them were actually for hair. And if you follow me on Instagram, you have already seen these photos.

Hair Care

I have been dealing with sensitive scalp issues, and also my hair started looking greasy really fast, and that is something I really hate. I’ve also visited my hairdresser recently, so have been trying to figure out the best products for my new cut.

Eucerin Dermo Capillaire Shampoo (from Feel Unique) and Euphytos Peeling Scrub  (Amazon UK) should help with the scalp issues and with a product build up. While I’ve bought the Eucerin shampoo after reading a lot of great reviews (and I do love it), I’ve never heard of Euphytos brand before but decided to try it.

SachaJuan Shine Serum (from Cult Beauty and Sephora) (review) I’ve wanted to

SachaJuan Shine Serum Review

Usually when it comes to reviewing a product I know whether or not I love it; but it took me almost a year to figure out this one. I have bought it last summer and am writing a review only now. Why?

Maybe, because of my expectations. I was ready for a miracle-in-a-bottle, I guess.

SachaJuan Shine Serum ReviewAlthough it wasn’t as outstanding, as I though it would be, I do like it a lot!

The serum adds shine and smooths the hair, especially the ends, without making them greasy.  I  also don’t have any complaints about this product, at all.  It has a nice design, convenient pump, and is Swedish (which is always a bonus, if you ask me) It is just that
