Makeup4all Turns 9!

I am very happy to share that today Makeup4all turns 9, it is as if I wrote this feature about it turning 5 yesterday. I honestly can’t believe it. So much has changed since that time.  Considering that it is also Valentine’s Day, I though I would share some features that are appropriate for the occasion. And for me VDay means red and roses, not like any other day is different.

Everything You Need To Know About Red Lipstick (here). I have written so many articles about red lipsticks over the years, and that is just a round up. And if you are wondering about my current favoruite red – that is this one.

And let’s not forget about the red Nail Polishes (here). Especially about

Autumn 2019 Lifestyle Favourites

It’s that time again when I share my seasonal favourites. Here is a look at my Summer picks, in case you’ve missed it. And here is what I’ve been loving this Autumn.

Beauty

  1. Victoria Beckham Beauty eye makeup as seen here. I’ve been looking forward to the launch of the VB Beauty line, and picked up the eye products the day they launched, and was not disappointed. I have a very detailed review (linked above) so won’t repeat myself. While I did not pick up anything else, I am excited to see what else Victoria is going to launch. There is definitely a foundation coming our way.

2. Darphin Intral Environmental Lightweight Shield SPF 50, ( Space NK, John Lewis ) probably the best city spf I’ve ever used. Lightweight and slightly tinted, it is not greasy or oily at all, gives you that healthy glow and protects the skin. Darphin is one of my favourite beauty brands in general, and this product is not an exception.

If we told you that there was a surprise inside this treasure, it wouldn’t be a surprise any more, now would it? Magic is a 14-sided bomb that turns your bathwater a deep sapphire blue. Seen from the top, it’s a hexagon, or ‘hex’ bomb, with a blend of marjoram and rose in the shell to dissolve anxieties. Then, as the water changes color, basil and peppermint oils swirl into your tub to bring you growth, vitality and energy. When the sprig of parsley inside floats free, prosperity looms.

Bathe in its brew of essential oils as often as you can before it disappears at the end of the year, making resolutions as you bathe.

LUSH Rub Rub Rub and Glögg Review and Photos

I haven’t been to LUSH in some time so I’ve decided to go and get something as a part of my Birthday treat. I’ve picked up one Christmas set with a big discount (obviously) and Rub Rub Rub.

I haven’t tried  the Northern Lights soap yet but I’ve used other products several times already and want to share my opinion.

Rub Rub Rub

I personally really loved this scrub as it is such a multi-purpose product. You can use it as a scrub on a dry body, mixed with water as a scrubbing shower gel for a more gentle effect or as… shampoo!

Although it does say that you can use it on your hair I don’t think I would ever do it unless a recommendation from a friend. And, wow, I was actually really impressed with the results.

Actually when I’ve asked a lady at LUSH for her favourite product – she pointed at Rub Rub Rub. And it is lovely. Leaves the body soft and clean when used as a scrub and leaves the hair shiny and light when used as a shampoo.

The only minus is that it won’t last you for a very long time. I am through half of the bottle in less than a month. I will definitely re-purchase this product at some point.

Do you have a  Lush scrub recommendations?

Glögg

This is actually a seasonal shower gel but
