Shiseido Spring 2011 Makeup Collection

If you follow me on twitter you probably remember that I had a dream that I met Dick Page for an exclusive Shiseido spring 2011 makeup collection preview (and, yes, all the items from the collection were gifted to me in a beautiful gift box).  Now that would be awesome if he would ever pick me for such an event but now I can only dream.

By the way, I had a lot of  dreams about Creative Directors of makeup brands, Famous Make-Up Artists and even beauty bloggers. But it’s better not to get into the details 😉

So I was very curious to see if the collection I saw in my dream would be any similar to the real Shiseido collection. Unfortunately, not really. In my dream there were a lot of pastel shades and light textures with pearls. Ok, at least the “pearl thing” is close… There will be the new Shimmering Rouge Lipsticks.

My Favourite Lip Glosses

Oh, great! Today I wanted to tell you about the Benefit gloss that I’ve been loving a lot lately. And just when I’ve wanted to take photos of it I’ve realized that I can’t find it! Perfect. I’ve been looking for it everywhere and still nothing.

If you follow me on twitter you probably know that about a month ago I’ve lost a brand new brown Benefit BadGal mascara which I bought for summer.

Great, now 2 Benefit products are gone. I am extremely upset.  The gloss  by the way is called I’m with the band and is a pretty peachy colour which smells amazing.  Plus it  feels great on the lips.

So now, instead of telling you about my Benefit gloss, I will just show you how I keep the glosses that I use most of the time.

I like to keep glosses that I like  separately from other glosses and lip products so that I can always reach for the one that I want to use today.

So here are the glosses that I like and some of them I reviewed for you already. Besides the glosses you can also see 2 mini lip liners by Chanel and Shiseido.

Glosses that I’ve already reviewed are:

Favourite Makeup Products of June

So, it’s time for favourite makeup products of June! Although, I often want to post a lot of things, I try to choose less than 10 products.

Here we go:

1. Hoola by Benefit

It is described as a natural bronzing powder. I’ve been using this product all the time for the last month. It’s a matte bronzer which  works great for contouring even on light skin if you blend it properly of course. It is probably my favourite boxed powder by Benefit.

2. BECCA Creme Eye Colour in Quartz

It is  described as silvery nude-pink. This is a perfect shade to use as a base and will look great on everyone. When I don’t have time to apply makeup – I just use this shade all over the lid, add some liner and mascara and eye makeup is done! Although  I love this product, I have to say that it creases in the end of the day.

3. Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Flipside

I adore this shade, perfect for summer, looks great on (almost) everyone! I love to pair it with bronzer, highlighter, mascara and lip gloss = simple summer look! Try it yourself ;). You can read the detailed review and see swatches of it here.

4. Stila Lip Glaze in Pinkle Twinkle


I made a review about Stila glosses quite a long time ago and
