Some of you may remember the feature about the products that I’ve chosen for my Mum, and here are the products that she picked up herself.
The other day my Mum called me to tell that she had some important work events and she needed some makeup products (she doesn’t use makeup on a daily basis). I told her that she could pick anything she wanted from my “collection”.
The thing is that I wasn’t home when she was at my place, and she had to choose everything herself. It was very overwhelming for her so she called me about three or four times, but here are the products that she got.
Hourglass Film Noir mascara, she loved the
You probably already all know that I have a thing for blushes, mostly luxury blushes. But there are some affordable blushes that are amazing.
I have a shade #7 which is a Peach Satin.
This blush has a lovely light texture which is a pleasure to use and which blends nicely into the skin. The shade that I have gives a natural peachy colour to the cheeks. This is a great choice for those who are afraid to get too much colour.
Maybelline Color Tattoo 24HR in Metallic Pomegranate was an impulse purchase. I jut saw it, and had to get it. I actually already have some Maybelline cream eye shadows but don’t use them enough.
But this one I have been using every single day ever since I’ve got it, the colour is just gorgeous! It actually reminds be a bit of one of my all time favourite shade, but this one is definitely has more purple to it.
It’s time for February favourites, and considering that I was sick for 10+ days in the shortest month of the year, there isn’t that much to show. But here are the products that really stood out to me.
Soap & Glory Whipped Clean Shower Butter (review)
Moisturising shower product that smells of almonds, pistachios and vanilla. Oh, yes! It is an instant cheer-me-up and works great for shaving, too.
Kerastase Mousse Bouffante Luxurious Volumising Mousse
I’ve been on a hunt for a new product for voluminous hair for some time now, and this is the one I’ve picked up, as mentioned here. I was a bit worried, as I haven’t used a mousse in more than 10 years but this one really delivers. Mousse Bouffante creates beautiful big hair without being sticky or making the hair look or feel greasy.
Uriage Gyn-Phy Intimate Hygiene Protective Cleansing Gel
Probably the best product for intimate hygiene I’ve ever used, it is gentle but effective, smells really nice and is a great way to start and finish the day with. We talk so much about facial cleansers and shower gels but not enough about the intimate washes. And this is a great one, go get it.
Maybelline Master Smoky Shadow Pencil in Smoky Chocolate (Review and Swatches)
I have re-discovered my
So many of you asked me to do month favourites posts so I started doing them last mont with March Favourites. Today I will tell you about my April Favourites.
1. Inglot Eye Shadows
2. MAC lipstick in Blankety
It reminds me of YSL Rouge Volupte #2 and I am talking about the shade, not quality. You can read my review and see the lip swatches here.
3. Too Faced Pink Leopard Highlighting Bronzer and Sun Bunny Bronzer
Although I have them in the palette which was a LE for holiday I can’t say that I use those shadows a lot but I really love the bronzers and you can read my review and see the swatches here.
4. Urban Decay 24/7 Liners in Zero (black) and Bourbon (brown with golden glitter).
I love mini eye liners and I try to buy mini versions when they are available because even mini versions last forever and I can get more shades with the same sum of money. I have several shades of 24/7 liners both mini version and original size and this month I was using these 2 shades a lot. The liners are really great: soft, pigmented and they last for a long time. Plus you can get a lot of differnet colours. I will write a detailed review in the future.
5. Benefit’s Creaseless Cream Shadow/Liners in Busy Signal
