I like how innovative is the design of some makeup brands these days. For example just take a look at this Trish McEvoy’s Medium Refillable Double Decker Compact and Jouer’s cosmetics packaging which you can customize the way you want.
I really like the sets that Trish McEvoy has put together for the holiday season.
The makeup set is a great value for money, there is a candle set (and who doesn’t love candles?) and don’t get me started on those fragrance sets with N°9 Blackberry & Vanilla Musk and Sexy 9 Blackberry & Vanilla Musk scents.
I have both and I absolutely adore them. You can read my impression here. I think they are perfect for Autumn/Winter.

I admire people who can write about perfumes in both interesting and informative way. Those (few) people can describe the notes in an absolutely magical way, you can almost imagine the scent and you really want to try it.
Unfortunately, I am not even close… But I just have to share about the scent that I’ve been loving a lot lately!
I was indifferent when it came to perfumes for the most of my life and got interested only recently so I don’t have that many bottles of perfumes but from those that I have my favourites are Paco Rabanne Black XS which is a mainstream and Jo Malone Vanilla & Anise and Red Rose which are not that rare, too.
Recently I’ve discovered a perfume that totally won my heart and I’ve been wearing it non-stop!
It is by Trish McEvoy and is called Sexy 9 Blackberry & Vanilla Musk.
It is described as:
What Trish herself says about this collection on her website: “My palm-sized Portable Beauty™ Simplicity Collection features an ultra-versatile face palette and mistake-proof brushes to meet all your touch-up needs on-the-go.”

It is always exciting to share about the favourite beauty products of the whole year, and I have been doing so for a while, here is a look back to 2018.
When I was thinking about the favourite beauty products of 2019, I had to look back at:
And, although I had an idea of of the products I wanted to include this made it even easier. Now, most of the products I have written in details about, so I will link to those posts.
1 Darphin Intral Environmental Lightweight Shield SPF 50, ( Space NK, John Lewis ) probably the best city spf I’ve ever used. Lightweight and slightly tinted, it is not greasy or oily at all, gives you that healthy glow and protects the skin. Darphin is one of my favourite beauty brands in general, and this product is not an exception.
2. Annick Goutal Rose Pompon Perfume,from Harrods and Bergdorf. It has the notes of Bulgarian rose essence, taïf rose, peony, blackcurrent, rasberry, pink pepper, woody cedar, patchouli and white musk. And it is just my dream scent, I never want to be without it, ever.
You must be shocked, right? Rose candles and I… Linked above you can see a few that I’ve enjoyed the most this year. Need MORE!
4. Trish McEvoy Instant Eye Lift Concealer (review and swatches).
Brilliant product: not heavy, doesn’t sit in the fine lines, makes you look fresh and not so tired. Isn’t it what we all want?
5. The Balm Balm Desert, £17.50 here
Not only it has been featured in 2018 but also in 2017, it is my hands down, favourite cheek product, I just use a big fluffy brush to give my face some definition and to warm it up. Balm Desert is in the middle.
6. Rouge Bunny Rouge Blush
