Ok, I am finally doing it! Writing 2015 yearly favourites that is. The thing is when I started writing this post I’ve gathered so many products that I’d be going on, and on about them all. This is why here are 15 I loved the most. 15 since it was 2015, yes, I know…
If I had to choose only 1 product that would probably be Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in 25 Alluring Rose (review and swatches)
Long-time readers know how much I love my blushers. And this year it was all about this one, I’ve barely used anything else. Creme Puff Blush gives that luminous glow that instantly brightens up the complexion. The formula is incredibly soft and smooth and blends into the skin beautifully. I have several shades but Alluring Rose is the love of my [beauty] love.
The other favourite is still my Trish McEvoy Golden Bronzer (review). As you can see from the photo above, it is very well loved. It warms up the complexion without looking orange or muddy. I like the hint of radiance it gives, too.
BECCA’s Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl (review) is still the best glow-and-radiance-in-a-bottle product out there. I usually mix it with foundation to make my skin look “healthy”. This formula and shade = perfection.
If I had to pick only one “foundation” of the year – that’d be Clarins HydraQuench Tinted Moisturizer (review and swatches), hands down. It is dry skin’s best friend. Clarins know how to
I think brands like Inglot and Kiko are taking the beauty world by storm. I mean what is not to like: huge selection of products, brilliant quality and affordable prices. Count me in! And while I’ve tried numerous products from Inglot over the years, somehow I just got my first Kiko product this summer only. But it is love...
I’ve decided to pick up their Long-Lasting Wet & Dry Use Eyeshadow to begin with, as it sounded and looked like something I’d enjoy using. There are 32 shades in general so it was a hard decision but I’ve managed to choose 202 Golden Mauve.
First of all, it looks absolutely gorgeous in the pan, you get a wavy pattern, and a handy lill’ mirror.
As for the shadows – the texture is great, it is buttery soft and very smooth, you can apply and blend it even with your finger.
When applied dry, the golden shimmer shows through more, especially when you gently pat it on – you get a
Finally, the craziest months work-wise are behind, and I will have more time for important things in life, like beauty (ha!), catching up on the series that I am watching, reading books, and my friends.
Here are the products I have been loving in July. And, although, I have mentioned some of them so many times, there are also some new additions.
Just like last month, I have been using Rouge Bunny Rouge Flawless Face Powder Precious Velvet (review) non-stop. It is a gorgeous light powder which sets the makeup, perfects the skin and looks really natural on.
Shadows wise, I am sure this won’t be a surprise at all to see Solstice Halcyon (review and swatches) yet again because I simply adore that eye shadow, and also Kiko’s Water Eye shadow in 202 which is a gorgeous brownish purple with golden shimmer, this beauty deserves a feature, so stay tuned.
For some reason, lately I haven’t been that much into red and berry lips, so it was about rosewood Clarins which I promise to post about soon, as it is a perfect nude, if you ask me, and L’Oreal Glam Shine in Dazzle 201 Sparkle Shower (review and lip swatches) which gives that oh-so-pretty sparkle in the sun and feels amazing on the lips.
Skincare and Body Care
Can you believe that it is MAY already? Where did 2015 go? Maybe that is because I am crazy busy these days that I don’t notice anything around me, who knows…
But back to April Beauty Favourites. I did not have that many makeup favourites, and did not want to mention the same products over, and over again – so here are 3 hero products that I have been using every single day when I did my makeup ( I was sick for a week in April which was horrible), and some new beauty loves…

The three makeup heroes I’ve mentioned are: Rouge Bunny Rouge Raven Glaze Lacquer Liner (review and swatches), Max Factor Glamour Extensions 3-in-1 Volumising Mascara (review), Bobbi Brown Natural Brow Shaper & Hair Touch Up in Slate (review). I haven’t been experimenting with eye makeup that much this month, and these are the products that just work. Eye brow gel to tint my eye brows and keep them in place, ultra black liner for that feline flick and mascara for thick and long lashes.
There are also three products that I’ve mentioned in my Spring Beauty Guide: Balance Me Radiance Rose Face Oil and Aromatherapy Associates Hydrating Rose Radiance Skin Serum for that
I’ve mentioned Bobbi Brown’s Natural Brow Shaper & Hair Touch Up in Slate here, and promised a review, so here it is.
I have been wearing this product in my eye brows for the last three weeks, and totally loving it. Why?
It fills in the gaps, tints the eye brows, gives them more texture, and holds them in place.
Slate is a great cool toned ashy grey, it is probably the best colour match for my eye brows I have ever tried.
The eye brows look natural (I don’t get that wax effect, some products can give), just fuller and more groomed. In fact, I’ve got some compliments [for my eye brows] recently, which
