I am a huge fan of vibrant fuchsia lips and nails, and wear that combo a lot! In fact, I even posted a photo on my Instagram lately.
So I thought that today I’d show you some of my favourite affordable options, if you don’t want to spend a fortune on beauty products.
For lips I’d recommend Revlon’s Lip Butter in Sorbet (review and swatches) and Rimmel’s Vinyl Gloss in Pin Up (review and swatches). Both are juicy and vibrant, sheer but bright glossy lip shades which are perfection for summer.
But if you want something more opaque or matte and more long-lasting, you may want to check these options from Bourjois and L’Oreal.
This weekend I was actually
You have probably heard a lot of about the Maybelline Color Tattoo eye shadows from the American beauty lovers.
The good news that from April these will be available in the UK (and EU I believe, too). These will retail for £4.99/€7.99
The shades that will be available in the UK and Ireland: Turquoise Forever, Endless Purple, Eternal Gold, On and On Bronze, Eternal Silver, Immortal Charcoal, Permanent Taupe.
These eye shadows with gel texture should stay on the lids for 24 hours. Can’t wait to try them!
Recently one girl I know asked me about budget friendly bronzer/blusher/highlighter palettes, and after searching for those for her, I thought I’d share with you, too, as these look absolutely amazing.

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.

If you are interested in contouring but don’t want to spend a fortune on a product – Maybelline Master Sculpt Contouring Palette is a great option to consider and here is why.

The texture is creamy and soft, you get a
