Sheer lipstick is my favourite lip colour texture. It combines the two things I love most – shiny colour and comfortable feel on the lips. My second favourite lip colour texture is lipgloss, it has all the shine I want, but doesn’t really have as much of this soothing quality to it that I also want to be there. I’ll post my best sheer lipstick rating soon. For now I’d like to talk about – […]

What made me think about writing this post is brown mascara by Chanel in their fall collection 2015 – 80 Ecorces. I’m going to add photos and swatches of it to my post called Chanel Les Automnales collection fall 2015 swatched tomorrow. For now I’d like to talk about the following: is it even worth getting a brown mascara for hazel eyes? As much as I’m always for buying more makeup :-), even I have […]

Burberry nail polish and makeup is a middle of the road thing for me in luxury market. It’s not the best out there, but it’s solid enough in terms of quality, where I can turn to it time after time and be quite satisfied with the result I get. Also, I think Burberry has done a really good job in terms of translating their brand DNA into their makeup range. Their permanent nail polish range […]

Corrector or concealer is a truly essential makeup item. Why? Well, for starters, only girls in photos and in cartoons have flawless skin. I mean, we are human, and as perfect as we are in our own way, there’s almost always something I, for one, would like to hide from the eyes of everyone around me. Why concealer and not base? I’ll tell you why. First, it’s fast. My skin is in a good enough […]

I love cream eyeshadow in pots. And I love cream eyeshadow in sticks. Especially when I need to quickly make up and get going, these two textures are the best. Bobbi Brown cream shadow stick formula is really good. It’s soft and easy to apply. Don’t you just hate it, when you’re applying an eyeshadow in a stick form or any form, and it’s so hard and harsh, that it hurts your lid? I hate […]

Sarah Smile is one of celebrity collaborations by Deborah Lippmann. This shade is created together with – as you might have guessed already – Sarah Jessica Parker. Well, what can be more glamorous that a nail shade created with ‘Sex and the City’ star?   Do you like nudes? Well-groomed nail look without much colour and your nails looking painted? Then this shade will appeal to you. It’s labeled as pale pink on Deborah Lippmann […]

Nude makeup and manicure became a classic. It’s ever so popular. It’s comfortable, elegant, it brings out the best in us, as opposed to trying to force a certain image on our personality and looks. And as any truly classic thing, it stays popular and fashionable and has a lot of fans all over the world.   Well, what do I personally like and appreciate about nudes? The fact that nude shades don’t make us […]

A mini collection by YSL – Rock Resille – includes only two products but these products are so spectacular they are worth mentioning and taking a closer look at.   First and foremost, their design. Oh. So French. Makes me want to wear stockings with this kind of pattern, a little black dress with a kind of flared skirt. Perfect. Seriously, I am going to wear those after seeing this collection. Speaking about it. Remember […]

Rouge d’Armani Sheers Lipstick – 6 new summer 2015 shades

I love sheer lipstick. It’s my favourite lip texture. I like the shine of lipgloss and the comfort of a soft lipstick combined all in one. There are several sheer lipstick formulas I love. And Rouge d’Armani Sheers is definitely one of them. Armani in general does a great job in terms of makeup quality and lipstick quality in particular. The only exclusion to this rule is Rouge Ecstasy, unfortunately.   Anyway, there’s still some […]
