This month it was all about beautiful  skin for me. The mix of Elemis Pro-Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm (review) and Clarins HydraQuench Tinted Moisturizer  (review and swatches) was my dream combo. It made the skin smooth, radiant and youthful. And I mean it. I guess the fact that recently several (!) people  thought that I am 19-20 speaks for itself. Plus you could definitely see the “real skin” underneath, no cakey thick masks which are even worse than bad skin tone itself, in my opinion.

Since I wanted to keep things on the light-to-medium side –YSL Touche Eclat  (review and swatches) was my best friend, as well.  For me it is a perfect light reflecting product for under the eye area, you get great, long-lasting results, also Touche Eclat doesn’t enhance the under eye lines.

August was definitely the month of

June 2014 Beauty Favourites

It’s time for monthly favourites! And this month I’ve been loving all the products that I’ve featured in May’s favourites, and several more.

Which ones?

June Beauty Favourites makeup4all rouge bunny rouge REN Maybelline 111skinMakeup

Two products from Maybelline: Master Smoky Shadow Pencil in Smoky Chocolate (review and swatches) and  Colorama Nail Polish in 16 Place Vendome.

The eye pencil is the a beautiful dark brown fuss-free crayon, which you apply, smudge with a sponge it comes with, and enjoy a long-lasting eye makeup. As for nail polish, I’ve been wearing it for two weeks this month, and already featured here.  It is a beautiful bright and glossy fuchsia, I promise to post swatches soon.

You can purchase Maybelline from Boots and Ulta.

I also have two picks from Rouge Bunny Rouge: Raven Glaze Lacquer Liner (review and swatches)  and

This month I was away for two weeks (one week at one place, and then another one – different one), but I always had Elemis Skin Brush (review) with me, and I’ve used it religiously.  I personally use it on the dry body, brushing towards the heart.  The results are amazing, but you can read all the dets in my review linked above. I have two Elemis brushes, because I just had to! And I would definitely recommend you picking one up.

shu uemura Eyelash Curlers (review). I use these curlers every single day without a fail. Without them, my makeup is just incomplete, and my lashes don’t look that nice. A must-have for everyone.

I did take a picture of only ten products on purpose, so that I don’t go on and on in this post. But I just have to mention this Rouge Bunny Rouge brush, it’s my staple now.

ArtDeco Cream Rouge For Cheeks and Lips in 17 Creamy Mauve  (review & swatches)

You know me, and my love for cream blushers. This one is my latest discovery. I love the natural and dewy effect it gives. Plus it works amazingly both for cheeks and lips.

Chanel Le Volume de Chanel Mascara in 10 Noir (review)

One of the best mascaras I have ever used.  Ultra black. Dramatic. Volume. Length. Holds curl. You have to try it!

Skin and Body Care

REN Rosa Centifolia No1 Purity Cleansing Balm (review)

Yes, I am including it in my monthly favourites yet again, as I love it that much. Mild but effective cleanser, which doesn’t strip the skin but leaves is smooth and soft.
