Top Three Most Luxurious Beauty Gifts

Here is the list of top three super expensive  luxurious beauty gifts for this holiday season.  I don’t think I could ever buy any of those, so this is purely for “entertainment”, at least for me.

Shu Uemura Karl Lagerfeld for Shu Uemura Ruby Eyelashes , £900

Yes, they have real rubies on them…

There is also a Tom Ford Vanity Case, £1,000.00. Looks properly luxurious but not sure that

shu uemura and Takashi Murakami Christmas 2013 Makeup Collection

I am personally almost done with my Christmas presents, which is super early this year, as I am usually a last minute shopper, so am already looking forward the Spring 2014 makeup collections.

But if you are still looking for  some nice, beauty related presents, you may want to take a look at the shu uemura and Takashi Murakami makeup collection.

This collection is called 6 heart princess (6HP), which is Murakami’s upcoming artwork (TV series, based on it will be shown in 2014).  You can read more about it in the end of this post.

There are two palettes (£60) with everything you may need to create a look: Pink Metamorphosis and Black Enchantment.

Do You Use Eyelash Curlers?

So today the questions is : ” Do you use Eyelash Curlers”? Do you see any results? Why did you start using them? What brand do you use?

I know that the best eyelash curlers are by shu uemura ($19 in USA). Do you have those? Now I think about buying it for myself. I can see that almost all Make-up Artists use them and they say it’s a miracle what they do with the lashes.

The reason why I still don’t have them?! I have some  cheap eyelash curlers (got them for about 5 Euros) and they don’t do anything or at least I don’t see any results. So I am hesitating about getting shue’s.  Do you think that eyelash curler is an essential  item  or just a waste of money?

Wong Kar Wai for shu uemura Holiday 2011 Makeup Collection

I have to admit that I love collaborations between shu uemura and  different designers/directors  as the results are always stunning!  This time the brand teamed with Wong Kar Wai to create the holiday 2011 makeup collection. And it is really beautiful…

This collection includes:

Burning in Water and Drowning in Flame palattes

Bleu Splendor and Festive Rouge mini nail polish sets

Special Edition

January 2013 Beauty Favourites

I used to write about my monthly favourites back in 2009, I think, but somehow stopped doing that. So I thought why not giving it another go in 2013?

So here is the list of my January 2013 Favourites and this time I’ve chosen only makeup, not to make a huge list. But next time I will probably add some of my beauty favourites, too. What do you think?

So here we go…

Lips

If I could choose only one favourite product of January – that would be Clarins Gloss Prodige in 09 Water Lily which is now my favourite lip gloss!  It is  hydrating, smoothing and looks  beautiful on the lips. And it smells delicious, too.

Face

Another product from Clarins would be their Beauty Flash Balm which is a must have for me in winter months, it makes my face look polished and brings back the glow. I also like how the foundation applies afterwards.

Speaking of foundation –  my top pick would be Rouge Bunny Rouge Tinted Moisturizer Sketches on Water. If you have dry skin, I would totally recommend, it blends into the skin and
