Tag: best in beauty
Hello, October! It’s time for September favourites, and last month I’ve discovered some absolutely amazing products which I am excited to tell you about.
My favourite base combo in September (and not only in September): Clarins Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base in 01 Rose (review and swatches) and Clarins HydraQuench Tinted Moisturizer (review and swatches), decanted. I have written very detailed reviews about both products so you are welcome to take a look. But if I had to sum up – I’d say that both items work incredibly well to add that glow/sheen back in the skin. You look just fine when in reality you are ridiculously exhausted and can only dream about getting some sleep. I recommend for dry skin especially.
I really love my Inglot Sculpting HD Powder in 504 (review and swatches), as you can see from the photo above. It creates that perfect and natural shade. Works even on the pale complexions and doesn’t look muddy, the formula is soft and smooth, and blends easily.
If I had to choose only one favourite product this month – that’d have to be
I honestly can’t believe that it is September next week, it seems like it was June only yesterday. But this was an absolutely amazing month, and here are the beauty products that really stood out to me.
Clarins Joli Rouge Lipstick in 738 Royal Plum (review and swatches)
Clarins revamped their Joli Rouge line (as seen here), and now it looks even more chic, and the formula feels even more comfortable. Royal Plum is the shade to die for, it is a must have for Autumn! I have to confess that oxblood was the colour of the month for me. Max Factor Glossfinity Nail polish in 185 Ruby Fruit was the shade I wore on my toes all month
I have to say that I am loving exactly the same beauty and makeup products that I have been loving in June, I should only add a few extras. If you can still get those Clarins eye shadows and bronzer – do it! I use both almost every single day, and don’t want anything else. In fact, two of my girlfriends bought them after they’ve tried mine and got obsessed, as well.
The love for coffee body scrub, Color Wow hair Shellac and the bronzing drops is still going strong, too.
But here are the products that I would like to add to the list of favourites.
L’Oreal Glam Shine in Dazzle 201 Sparkle Shower (review and lip swatches)
It seems like this was the only lip product I have been loving this month besides the lip balm. I’ve bought this gloss last July and almost used it up. It smells delicious, feels nice on the lips and looks ridiculously pretty with that multi-dimensional glitter effect. Can’t get enough of it. And it is cheap, too.
Rouge Bunny Rouge Long-lasting Brow Liner ALCHEMY in Antimony 088
Rouge Bunny Rouge finally launched their eye brow collection which consists of four products: two eye brow pencils and two eye brow gels. I will write a detailed review with swatches soon but today I want to tell you about the Antimony eye brow pencil which is slim and allows incredible precision. The shade is not warm which is perfect and the formula is soft but not smudgy. It was worth the wait!
Garnier SkinActive Oil-Infused Micellar Cleansing Water
I’ve used up several bottles of the original Garnier micellar water and finally bought this one in July, and I am loving it. It cleanses the skin really well, without leaving an oily residue. I also find
As cliché as it sounds, can you believe that it is 2016 already? Did you set any professional and personal goals for the new year? Are you excited for the new beginnings?
I like looking back analysing my accomplishments and making plans/ dreaming about the future. So, I was curious to see what were some of the most viewed posts of 2015 and share with you, in cased you’ve missed them.
Here we go:
Here is, as promised, the second part of my Favourite Beauty Products of 2014 features.
This time it’s all about the eyes & lips. Enjoy, and don’t forget to share yours.
Eye Shadows Platte – theBalm Shady Lady Vol 2 (review)
I have re-discovered this beauty in summer, and this was the palette I travelled with most of the times, amazing formulas, great colour selection, thin packaging and great mirror – what else do you need? theBalm eye shadows are among the best.
Mascara – Clarins Be Long (review)
I’ve managed to get lush looking lashes with Be Long, it separates perfectly, is never clumpy, and gives a nice , rather dramatic effect, if you use several coats. The brush, for me, is mess-free. I have recommended it to several friends, and they loved it, too.
Cream Eye Shadow – Max Factor Excess Shimmer Eye Shadows (review)
Definitely one of the coolest eye shadows I’ve discovered in ages. Mousse-like texture that allows you to get a sheer hint of shimmer, or layer it on for a more intense look. It is stunning both ways!
Eye Shadows – Rouge Bunny Rouge Eye Shadow in Solstice Halcyon (review)
