Tag: best lip liners
Two months of 2017 are down, wow, how did it happen? But this means that it is time for monthly favourites.
To be honest, I loved/used pretty much the same products as in January, and there are very few additions.
Also, this month most of the the products I have been loving are very
cheap affordable. Let’s take a look.
I have started using my lip liners more often – especially the ArtDeco Soft Lip Liner Waterproof in 80 (review and swatches) and Rimmel Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Lipner in East End Snob (review and swatches). I actually want to get the Rimmel one in red now, too. I don’t really overdraw my lips like there is no tomorrow, I mainly use them to create the shape I want, and make the lipstick look more defined. But if you want to create fuller lips – this video from Lisa Eldridge is pretty awesome.
The other cheap and cheerful product I loved is the Makeup Revolution Natural Nudes Eyeshadow Redemption Palette Iconic 3 (you can get it from Amazon UK or Amazon) which, according to all the reviews is a dupe for Urban Decay’s Naked 3. I have so many Urban Decay palettes which I have been buying over the years, but for some reason I barely ever use them, however I have been reaching for this Revolution one all the time. There are several shades I really love, and the quality is very decent, in my opinion. This palette was a present from a friend.
It’s not a secret that my favourite affordable skincare brand is
Rimmel Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Liners are a cult product among the beauty lovers, especially the East End Snob shade.
Let’s find out why…
First of all, the design is amazing, these pencils look way more expensive than they actually are, and it is great that each shade has a matching packaging. Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Liners don’t need sharpening, and help with a precise application, as they are not too thin but not too thick either.
As for the formula – it is all you need in a
The first month of 2016 is already behind us. How does it feel? Was it a good one? Are you ready for the rest of 2016? Do you stick to your resolutions? 😉
It was a pretty good month beauty-wise for me, and here are the products I’ve been loving:
Nivea Nourishing Body Lotion For Very Dry Skin and a shower cream from this line. My Dad (!) actually got these two for me for Christmas, and I am really touched that he actually got the right products for my skin type. I usually take them with me when I go swimming but use them on a daily basis, too. I love how soft and smooth my skin feels afterwards, and how nice it smells. Considering how quickly I go through body creams and lotions it is nice to have something budget-friendly, as well.
Jo Malone Red Roses Cologne
I honestly don’t understand how could I miss the fact that Jo Malone discontinued Vanilla & Anise (and WHY would they do it?) so I am left with a half bottle only. At least I can still get this scent. Red Roses is definitely not for everyone, some of my friends laugh that I smell like a rose jam whenever I use it, and it may be a bit weird to smell like this when you wear a lot of black, leather, and red… but hey, life is supposed to be fun. I also have a candle which I adore as much as the cologne.
CND Solar Oil
I was getting gel manicure for about 6 months non-stop but once I was too busy to go to my manicurist who is absolutely amazing but works far away from my home (and work, too), and had to rush to the nearest salon as my nails were looking disgusting at that point. I can’t believe how
I was away with my friends for the weekend, and it was exactly what I needed, we had such an amazing time, walked around, tried new food and just laughed a lot.
I thought I’d share what lip products I had with me. I could actually have less but since I wanted to make an effort for once and have a choice I took quite a few. And here they are together with everything else I had with me, so that you’d see the proportions.
Plus, I’ve decided to share about the lip products, as regular readers will recognize all the other products as I talk about them non-stop anyway. But if you have any questions about any of the products – please leave me a comment.
Also, since I usually talk about luxury lip products, I thought it’d be nice to include some budget-friendly options this time.
Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector. (review and swatches) – the best “nude”
I am totally in love with this line. I have already used up 01 Rose and now am half way through Rosewood. These are absolutely brilliant, just like the glossy version. I also have two more shades which are equally great!
Rouge Bunny Rouge Lip Potion Devilish Nectar – just for fun.
This is actually a lip gloss with Chilli which makes your lips fuller. It also contains golden shimmer so the lips do look pretty. I did not get a chance to use it this time but it was nice to have options. I will
