New In: H&M Beauty and Makeup

Is it better late than never?

H&M beauty launched quite some time ago but I’ve realized that I never even mentioned it. I haven’t tried anything yet but I do love the look of the range. And there is everything: makeup, beauty tools, hair, body products and makeup bags. They even have  travelling units.

Here are actually some of the looks from the campaign, and they all are beautiful and classy: red lips and a cat eye, deep berry lips, smoky eyes and nude lips with pretty peach blush.

I had a quick browse, and here are some of the products that caught my attention:

SachaJuan Shine Serum Review

Usually when it comes to reviewing a product I know whether or not I love it; but it took me almost a year to figure out this one. I have bought it last summer and am writing a review only now. Why?

Maybe, because of my expectations. I was ready for a miracle-in-a-bottle, I guess.

SachaJuan Shine Serum ReviewAlthough it wasn’t as outstanding, as I though it would be, I do like it a lot!

The serum adds shine and smooths the hair, especially the ends, without making them greasy.  I  also don’t have any complaints about this product, at all.  It has a nice design, convenient pump, and is Swedish (which is always a bonus, if you ask me) It is just that

Estelle & Thild Rose Otto Advanced Age Prevent Facial Oil and Rose Otto Advanced Age Prevent Serum Review

And I am talking about Estelle & Thild Rose Otto Advanced Age Prevent Facial Oil and Rose Otto Advanced Age Prevent Serum.

Esthelle & Thild is a luxury organic Swedish brand (and I do love anything Swedish, of course) which was founded in 2007 by Pernilla Rönnberg, which she created with her daughters in mind, Estelle and Mathilde, hence the name. And how gorgeous does the lady herself look?

I personally am not necessarily a die-hard fan of organic products, but these I do love.


I have two products from the mature/dry Rose Otto range, and they both are fantastic!


Want It: FACE Stockholm Makeup

I think that you all already know that I am a huge fan of anything Scandinavian! Makeup and beauty as well, of course.

This is why I can’t believe that I haven’t tried the FACE Stockholm yet.

FACE Stockholm was founded in 198o’s by Gun Nowak. She decided to created a beauty brand as she wanted to have  a big variety of colours and couldn’t find them on the market. Here is what she says: “I didn’t set out to do makeup but I was into crazy makeup and I couldn’t find the colors anywhere! I saw the opportunity. I wanted every color!”

You can read more about the brand  and see their products here.

I was browsing the website for some time and was impressed by the variety of colours they offer, 135 shades of
