It’s time for September favourites! And some of the products you see over, and over again, but I just can’t help it, as I love them very much.

You know how much I love my blushes. But if I could keep only one – that’d probably be BECCA’s Cream Blush in Amaryllis. That says it all, and the photo shows how much I love it.

When I need a very long lasting blush which I can also use on the lips (and  it’s a must have for bridal makeup) – BECCA got it covered, too. Their  Beach Tints are spot on! I have been loving in Grapefruit shade a lot.

I am not a powder person at all, but I have been experimenting with Rouge Bunny Rouge’s Flawless face Powder Precious Velvet in Piano Forte  a lot lately and love the results, it’s a weightless product which gives a beautiful and natural polished finish.

July 2013 Beauty Favourites

It’s time for  July favourites and this month it was very easy to pick the products, as I truly love all of them and have been reaching for them a lot!

So here we go:

Body

I don’t know how many times I’ve mentioned Xen-Tan Deep Bronze Luxe Once A Week Self Tan (review) and Omorovicza Gold Shimmer Oil (review)  but I have to do it just once again as they are both fantastic products! Both are not exactly cheap  but the best summer investment I’ve made.  The self tanner gives my pale skin some colour so that I don’t look like a corpse and the oil moisturizes my dry skin and gives a beautiful glow.

I am not the one to go for shimmer usually but for summer I love it. Plus the oil smells amazing and a little goes a very long way.

When I finish my Xen Tan self tanner I plan to get  an even darker version (I also have a Light one, by the way)  – Xen-Tan Dark Lotion Absolute Luxe Weekly Self-Tan, that is.

June 2013 Beauty Favourites

It’s about time for my June favourites, right? But I guess it is better late than never, so here we go.

First of all I want to show you two products that I couldn’t find when I was taking a  group photo. Since I am completely re-doing my place, it’s a total mess and it can be hard to find things…

YSL and Amazemitt June Beauty Favourites 2013 makeup4all

Face

Amazemitt

I was away half of June and this lill’ mitt was a great product to have with me. Although it is suggested that you use it without any cleanser to take the makeup off (and it does work that way), this time I’ve used it with a cleanser to make sure that everything was properly removed from my face.

Bronzer

I don’t wear bronzers, unless I have some tan on. And since now I do, mostly thanks to self tanners, I’ve been wearing this YSL’s Terre Saharienne bronzer a lot in June. It warms up the complexion and has the right amount of shimmer, which is not over the top, but spot on.

Eyes

Eye Shadows

I have been absolutely in love with Daniel Sandler’s Eye Shadow Quad in Scandal at Midnight, I’ve used it both on myself and on the beautiful model on the shoot I worked on recently.  And, as I’ve already mentioned Desire is perfect for

April 2013 Beauty Favourites

It’s the end of the month, so it means it’s time  for April beauty favourites! I really love all the products from the previous “favourite posts” and here is the new selection.

Hair

L’Occitane Repairing Shampoo and Conditioner for Dry & Damaged Hair

I’ve been absolutely in love with this duo from L’Occitane, although my hair is not dry or damaged. It’s an absolute pleasure to use, as it  cleanses well, leaves the hair looking nice and smells amazing.

There is not that much left, so I have already ordered some Philip B hair care products, but I will definitely re-purchase these at some point in the future. Read more about them here. 

 Makeup

Rimmel Lycra PRO Nail Polish in Blue Vogue

I have been wearing this nail polish for more than a week this month, it is absolutely gorgeous, see the swatch, and also long-lasting.

Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush in 09 Soft Murano

This blush is a great proof that high quality products are not necessarily expensive. Miracle Touch was my most used blusher this month. I have two shades and adore them both. I should probably

Favourite Beauty Products of 2012: Nails

The list of my favourite makeup products  of 2012  was too long already for me to include nail products, too.So here is a separate one.

I’ve decided to be very strict with myself and choose only two nail polishes, one for SS and the other for AW as, otherwise, I would just go on, and on…

OPI Every Month Is Oktoberfest

This is a gorgeous colours, when I saw the promo photo, I knew I had to get it. But when I saw the first swatches on-line, I’ve ordered it as soon as it was available.  OPI have a lot of beautiful complex dark nail polishes and Every Month Is Oktoberfest  is one of them. I wear mine a lot, in fact, I have it on as I type. See it on my nails here.

 Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Nomad

And this was my favourite SS nail polish, such a perfect jade colour. There are a lot of  variations of jade from different brands, but I think this is my favourite.  Plus I am a big fan of Illamasqua’s nail varnishes. By the way, I had it on my toes during my summer holiday. And here is manicure with this shade.

As for other products, I have to mention
