January 2015 Beauty Favourites

I am actually surprised that  I have so many  favourites this month, as beauty wasn’t exactly my priority in January. But I truly loved all the products I am going to mention.

Makeup

Surprisingly, it was all about the brown tones for me this month. I always wear red or berry, but felt like a wanted a change and be rebellious with the nudes. This probably doesn’t even make sense to some of you, I know.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Sheer Lipstick- Succulence Of Dew in Perfume Of His Gaze – it is described as “sheer tanned nude-beige”, and I totally agree. Never thought that I’d be wearing something like this. But never say never. Plus, it’s only makeup, it is supposed to be fun.

I am sure that you are already bored to death  with me talking about this Trish McEvoy’s bronzer, but this is literally the only product I have been using on my cheeks lately (this and NYX Taupe). And  Hourglass No. 2 Foundation/Blush brush is my favourite tool  for bronzer/blush/healthy glow & colour on my cheeks.

Speaking of Hourglass, their Visionaire Eye Shadows Duo in Gypsy was another favourite. Along with Inglot’s  Eye Shadows AMC Shine 37 – I can never get enough of these two!

Finally, there is a mascara  that I have been using so much that all the words on it on it completely rubbed off – Max Factor Mastepiece Transform High Impact Volumising Mascara. It gives amazing volume, ultra-black colour and instant wow-effect.

12 Favourite Beauty Products of March

So many of you asked me to do a “favourite beauty products of the month” posts that now I just have to do it lol. I already reviewed some products so I will just give the link in this case. As for the other products – I plan to review some of them later but feel free to ask questions and leave comments. Ok, here we go! 🙂

1.Dream Cream by Lush

I wrote a review this week so you can read it here

2. BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl

I got this products for £ 32.00 at zuneta. This is a lot for a highlighter you may say. But you get 50 ml and it will last you forever plus this product is SO good. I will be sure to write a detailed review. Why did I get it you may ask? Lisa Eldridge said that this is one of her favourite products ever and I was looking for a new highlighter so I had to buy it 😉 You can watch  Lisa’s video about liquid highlighters  here

3.Toleriane Dermo-Cleanser, Gentle non-foaming cleanser by La Roche-Posay

You can read about it more at the official website. This cleanser works great for my very dry and sensitive skin. When I bought it I got samples of almost all products of the brand and I really loved some of them. And what do you think about this brand?

4.BI-FACIL – Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover by Lancome

This is one of the best makeup removers that I’ve ever tried and I know that a lot of ladies love it, too.

5. OMBRES 5 LUMIÈRES 5 Colour Harmony for Eyes in #7 Bronze Gold by Yves Saint Laurent

I love everything about these shadows : design, texture, colours. The only thing that I don’t like is the price. Promise to write a review and make swatches about this palette.

6.Liquid Metal in Phenomena (silver) by Illamasqua

This product creases but it’s too beautiful so I am really in love with it. Also if you use it over the shadows everything is ok. Review and swatches here

8.Vinyl Gloss by Rimmel in Punk Princess 197 (clear with golden sparkles)

You can read more about this gloss and see the swatches here. I really like Rimmel glosses and have a few of them. But this shade was in my purse almost all the time this month.

7. Bourjois Limited Edition 2009 Vintage Blush in Amber D’or

I HAD to buy something from “Rendez-vous à Paris” by Bourjois. I am so proud that I bought only one blush although I had a big temptation to buy everything. Yes, I am addicted to pretty things.  These are the same products that you can get from the brand but with an amazing design.

8.Vinyl Gloss by Rimmel in Punk Princess 197 (clear with golden sparkles)

Nails Of The Day: L’Oreal Resist & Shine Titanium Nail Polish in 734 Black Red

Today I want to show you one more nail polish which is among my favourites and it is L’Oreal Resist & Shine Titanium Nail Polish in 734 Black Red.

I’ve actually had it for over a year now and wore it numerous times but somehow always forgot to take the photo.

So here it is finally! And I am so in love with the blackened red, it is a perfect combination if you ask me… It looks absolutely stunning on the nails.

The nail polish applies evenly and is opaque with two coats but the thing that I hate about it is the brush. It is long and thin (and I like it to be short and thick) so I manage to create some mess, especially near the cuticles. But if that’s the kind of brush you like, it shouldn’t be a problem for you.

Although on me it doesn’t last for seven days, as promised, I love and use this nail polish a lot.

Elseve Nutri-Gloss Light Conditioning Shine Spray. Review

Last Tuesday I was invited to a wedding. This is how my mani and lips looked like. But what about my hair? I just wanted it to be straight and shiny. My hair is staright and shiny  but I wanted it to look better than usual. So I thought that it’s time to get some shine spray.

I’ ve tried several “shiny” products for hair but what was the result?  My hair became greasy and oily very soon and I had to wash it on the next day. But I still wanted to try something out so I went shopping and found this !I really like Nutri-Gloss Light Shampoo (read review here) so I wanted to give a try to this spray. Plus it is not expensive.

loreal shine spray

This is what is written about this spray. Information is from L’Oreal’s website.

Is your mid to long hair fine, or does it tend to get greasy? Does it need a light weight spritz to give it shine, and leave it instantly detangled?

The L’Oréal laboratories have developed Elseve Nutri-Gloss Light Conditioning Shine Spray. A leave-in shine enhancing conditioner you can use everyday, in a spray that’s light and quick to use. Weightless Detangling, Mirror Shine – Cashmere Touch.

Your hair is instantly detangled and manageable: combing is easy! Perfectly nourished, the fibre captures and reflects light. Your hair feels soft and light, with mirror like shine.

So light, can be used as a conditioning boost: On damp hair after washing with shampoo & conditioner, or instead of regular conditioner depending on hair condition. On dry hair, with a light spray to tame hair between washes or on the go! No need to rinse. Can be used every day for daily gloss.


So did I like the effect and is it really true?
