The last several weeks were insane for me… But I have so many things that I want to write about: both news and reviews but can hardly find time to do it.
So I’ve decided to share some of the new products that I am going to write about soon. I have been using most of them for a while now and pretty much everything is amazing.
Some of the new makeup: theBALM Shady Lady eye shadows, Trish McEvoy bronzer, eye shadows from the Fall collection and the new fan brush. Clarins lip glosses which I already reviewed and MAC Vex eye shadow.
Kerastase Chroma Riche Luminous Softening Essence (it’s brilliant) , Aromatherapy Associates Perfect Partners Bath and Shower Oils (love!), Stenders Rose bath bubble ball and Rose bath milk (wanted to try this brand for a while and it did not disappoint), L’Occitane
I love writing Monthly Beauty Favourites posts, they make me analyse what products I used the most, and loved the best. I am also always happy when you find a good product through my recommendations 😉
Not gonna lie, October was a rough month for me, a lot of stress and lack of sleep. Most of the time I don’t bother with a good base that much, but this month I was constantly “rocking” dark circles, horrible skin-tone and even some breakouts. I just looked very tired in general.
So to imitate the “I-am-doing-great-thanks” skin I was using my favourite Pearl Shimmering Skin Perfector by BECCA all over the face as a base to give me some glow. Since I have very dry skin, it did not look greasy or shiny on me, in fact, I loved the effect.
Then I followed with Clarins’ Tinted Moisturizer, which is one of my favourite products for face, ever. Read the review to find out why it is that special.
If you read this post, you probably know that I have been ignoring the blushers lately. So, of course I had to include
This post was supposed to be a Valentine’s Day beauty gift guide but since I did not have time to prepare one in time, it will be about the eye products launches that caught my attention.
“Creamy, pigment-rich, shimmering eye shadow pen glides smoothly onto lid or lash line for endless shading and eye defining options with maximum staying power.”
The shades are: Smokey Quartz (shown), Topaz, Crystal Grey and Rose Quartz

I am excited to see Smith and Cult bringing out other makeup items besides their gorgeous nail polishes.

Last week(s) was very stressful and intense for me, I’ve barely had time for anything (lack of sleep, eating on the go, putting makeup on in a taxi) but I still had to look good. This is why I had to stick to the products that work the best for me, and didn’t have time for any experiments. So here is a selection that I love, that work, and that never let me down.
Makeup wise – my “foundation” of choice was Clarins HydraQuench Tinted Moisturizer which did not enhance any dry patches, and made my skin look glowing. It also helped to even out the skin tone, as I don’t have any major skin problems – this was enough. Bobbi Brown’s Natural Brow Shaper & Hair Touch Up in Slate is also a real gem, it tints the brows and holds them in place. I am addicted to this product , will write a detailed review soon.
Lip colour is the only thing that I’ve been changing, but most of the times that was all about the new Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm Perfectors; 03 My Pink created a
I really love the look of Trish McEcoy’s Resort collection! The model is just stunning and the products look beautiful.
So what do we have here?
Eye Base Essentials Nude ($25), Brush 66 Cream Blender ($32), Luminous Eye Shadow Rose Gold ($25), Eye Definer / Eye Liner Mahogany ($16), Intense Gel Eye Liner Arabian Nights ($24), Lash Curling Mascara ($30), Golden Glow Face Color ($35), Brush 65 Angled Contour ($45), Flawless Lip Color in Perfect Coral or Coral Shimmer, ($28.50).
I really love the look of both eye shadows and the Face Color which includes Bronzer Golden and Blush Glow.
Trish McEvoy is hard-to-find brand but I would recommend you trying Trish’s products if you can get them:
Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus and select Bloomingdale’s and BlueMercury locations. Henri Bendel’s and Bergdorf Goodman in New York City, Harvey Nichols in London, Leeds, Edinburgh and Birmingham, England and Selfridges in London and Manchester.
I don’t have the prices in GBP, unfortunately.
