Summer is here and I hope those of you who love summer enjoy it. I am not really a fan of summer because most of all I hate the heat!
Here are some products* that I’ve tried and that I think work great for summer.
Be sure that your makeup is waterproof so you don’t end up looking like this 😉
Add a sun-kissed glow to your face with Too Faced bronzers.
My favourite cream blush, true coral shade by Illamasqua, works perfect in summer heat.
Want to create bright vibrant eye makeup for summer? Everything is possible with Inglot shadows.
Be sure to use cream eye shadows that don’t smudge or crease, something like Benefit’s crealseless cream eye shadows.
If you are going to the pool and to the beach and like to use makeup – use only waterproof products, something like
I wanted to try Butter London for a long time already. This is what is written about the product:
“Butter London brings us non-toxic nail treatments and lacquers in an array of delicious shades. The hero product is the 3 Free line, which waves goodbye to typical (but nasty) ingredients such as formaldehyde, toluene and DBP. We love their on-trend shades and entertaining names!”
I read some reviews including these at London Makeup Girl. So now I was sure that I want to try it. But what shade? It was very hard to decide because they all looked amazing to me plus the names are great. At first I wanted to get Artful Dodger but I just decided to wait for Chanel’s Nouvelle Vague .
So Yummy Mummy looked liked a perfect shade to me. I’ve spotted some other shades that were calling my name but I when I try something for the first time I get only one product.
What were my thoughts now when I got it? First of all it’s the best nail polish design that I ever saw. I also love the name “butter London”. And in my opinion these are also important factors because now you can choose from so many brands that you should like as many factors about the product as possible.
What about the nail polish itself? I really liked the brush which is kind of small and thin. For some of you this is not the best thing to hear. But I love brushes like this because it helps you to apply the product neat and tidy. Often I do my manicure myself so this is very important for me. You get an opaque cover after you use it only once and it is one of the most important factors. But if you want to get the more intense colour – go for 2 layers.
How long it stays on nails? In my case the products started to chip on 3rd day (without top coat) but it still looked ok. But on the 4th day I had to remove it. Also I have to mention that butter London doesn’t stink like some polishes.
In general I am
