May 2014: My Current Top 5 Luxury Makeup Products

Since so many of you enjoyed the post about my “Current top 5 affordable makeup products” I wrote back in Mach, I’ve decided to write the same feature, but about luxury products.

And, I am pretty sure, regular readers won’t be surprised at all.

Especially to see Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in 04 Petal Shimmer (review and swatches) and Lancome Le Crayon Khol in Brun Noir (review and swatches) on the list. Are you bored of these yet?  I just can’t help myself, I do love both products a lot and refuse to be without them.

Lanocome’s  perfect dark brown eye pencil is the one that I use on myself at least several times per week, and I have at least one shade of the Clarins’ lip glosses in my bag, or even in my coat pocket.

I also need to have nice-looking brows, that’s were Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Soft Brunette (review and swatches) helps a lot. It is super quick and easy to use, and  you get a fuller, but not

Favourite Beauty Products of 2013: Makeup. Part 2

I already did a post about my favourite bases and cheek products of 2013, so here is the second part which is all about the eyes, lips and nails.  To compare my list t0 2012 favourites click here.

So here we go…

Eyes

Favourite Beauty Products of 2013 Makeup for eyes makeup4allI will start with the eye brows, and my favorite and most-used product, hands down, was Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Soft Brunette (review). It is a must have for me now, easy to use, long-lasting and great shade.

As for the liners – it was super easy to choose: Rouge Bunny Rouge Raven Glaze Lacquer Liner (review), black and glossy liner is in my personal top favourites ever. When I am in the mood for the cat eye, this is the product I always use. Plus it’s so easy to control.

For an every day use, and I’m sure this is no surprise to you, I always use Lancome’s Le Crayon Khol in Brun Noir (review). I have so many eye pencils, but 99% of the time I use this one. It’s a perfect blackened brown which is very soft and easy to blend, dreamy.

When it comes to mascaras, I have two favourites, as well. One in a classic black shade, which is  Chanel Le Volume de Chanel Mascara in 10 Noir (review), easily one of the best mascaras I have ever tried, ultra black and mega volumizing. I have a small sample but am buying a full size.

I also want to mention a colourful mascara – Rouge Bunny Rouge Dramatic Lash Mascara Megaplumes in Oxblood Panache (review). It is an innovative shade which looks beautiful on the lashes, what you is is what you get.

And, of course, I have to mention Anastasia’s Genius Top Coat (review) which changed my beauty life.

There are so many  great eye shadows that I could

Lips Of The Day: BM Beauty Mineral Lip Gloss in Nude

I have promised a lip swatch of one of my favourite lip products  – BM Beauty Mineral Lip Gloss in Nude. So here it is…

BM beauty?! Yes, it is not the brand that you hear about very often.  I was sent some of their products a long time ago, and I felt absolutely in love with the brush and lip gloss (you can read a feature here).

I already wrote about the gloss, so won’t repeat myself, but it really is unlike anything else  that I have.  Maybe it’s because I don’t really have  any experience with mineral indie lip products?!

Inside My Makeup Bag: Lip Products

I have a habit of accumulating lip products in my bag… Although it got batter with time, I still have around three – five by the end of the week.

So, I’ve decided to look inside the makeup bag that I carry with me (and it’s only Wednesday) and see what  lip products are there, and here are the results.

This is a very good lip balm, and, I think, I have with me pretty much all the time. It is moisturising without being greasy, exactly what I like in a balm.

May 2013 Beauty Favourites

Can you believe that it’s almost Summer? It’s the last week of May, so it’s time for a monthly favourites feature.

And I want to start with beauty products:

May Beauty Favourites SachaJuan, 111Skin,  Clarins, Philip B

Hair

1. SachaJuan Ocean Mist

I have bought the Ocean Mist from my wish list this month and am absolutely in love with it! It gives just the right amount of texture and volume without making the hair too crispy. Now I just need to get the Shine Serum, too.

 2. Philip B Peppermint & Avocado Clarifying Shampoo

This product was also on my wish list and I am very happy with this purchase, as well. It smells absolutely divine, I am a huge fan of mint products for hair. I find that is leaves my scalp clean and “fresh” and  the hair super shiny.  I have got this in a kit and I’ve been loving all the products so far.

Face

3. 111Skin Y Theorem Nac Y2 Facelift Repair Serum

This serum, which costs £190 was sent to me for the feature, and I was curious to see if it was worth the price. Unfortunately, for my wallet, it is absolutely fantastic. Definitely one of the best products I have ever used on my face!  I’d say that the skin looks super soft, smooth and plump afterwards.  I will definitely write about it in details in the future.

4. Clarins Gentle Exfoliator Brightening Toner

This is a gentle, yet effective exfoliating toner which helps to achieve a brighter and fresher complexion. I use mine two-three times per week. Review coming later.
