I know, I know, it’s Halloween, so, my post is supposed to be super spooky. Well, it’s not going to be. Sorry 🙂 First of all, there’s enough Halloween around us, right? I mean, yes, we’re going to have fun, dress up, party… And if you’re looking for sinister makeup and manicure ideas, please, read my post called Halloween manicure and makeup for inspiration. I feel like going the opposite way with my post today. […]

Best sheer lipstick formula – shine and dazzle

Sheer lipstick is my favourite in lip colour world. Why do I love sheer lipstick so much? It gives me all I want. I want wet shine and I want comfortable feel. If I have that, I’m happy 🙂 Of course, I go for other textures – lip gloss, cream, matt, care, but I always find myself coming back to sheer lipstick and getting a warm welcome.   What’s so good about this formula? Well, […]

Holiday collections start showing up, and I already can tell the general direction they’re taking. I’m getting a feel for what’s going to be trendy this holiday season. There’s some good old stuff, that we’re used to seeing on Christmas, and then there are some new things too getting introduced.   Holiday season seems to be a great time for this combination of good old and good new. I like that.   On the old […]

What is it about red manicure that makes us come back to it again and again? Is it that red was one of the first nail and lip colours ever? And became an undoubted classic? Or that it’s womanly? And sexy? Elegant and sophisticated? I couldn’t tell you for sure what it is, but red nails are special.   At least, they are to me. Also, red manicure is so versatile. There are so many […]

Snow and miracles? Sounds mighty fine. I want both. Snow. And miracles. And Christmas. I know, I know, it’s too early. But holiday makeup collections are here already. So, I can anticipate and dream. The first holiday collection of the year I got my hands on is by Guerlain. Let’s see what they’ve got.   Meteorites Flocons Enchantes   You know what, as much as I love Meteorites, this year Guerlain has done so much […]

YSL has recently released this limited edition eye palette.   It’s full name is rather long 🙂   Couture Palette Clash & White edition 5-color-ready-to-wear   Clash & White is an interesting name. The palette is packed in a classic YSL golden shiny box.   O-oh, it’s a beauty. So elegant and chic. I don’t even like animalistic prints that much, but this is so well done. Superb.   This is great. White tigery. And […]

Halloween is stepping on our toes. And it got me thinking – on this dress up fun going out night, what manicure and makeup will look best? What shades, textures and looks are the hottest and special enough to go well with the whole spooky concept of this holiday?   We’ll start with the nails, then move onto makeup. Ready?   Well, probably the most obvious choice for Halloween night would be… Anybody? Of course. […]

Armani Ecstasy Lacquer 402 red-to-go swatched

I have to tell you, I was kind of apprehensive to try Ecstasy Lacquer, because while I generally like Armani makeup formulae a lot, their Rouge Ecstasy lipstick is almost the only makeup product by this brand, that I don’t like in the least. I don’t like its scent, I don’t like the way it feels on the lips, I don’t get the caring element which is stated to be part of the formula. The […]

Here we have two palettes by Sephora. Remember, last time around we got smoky eye look in the similar form and limited edition packaging?   Well, judging by the names of the palettes – Nude and Neutrals – these must be the opposite of smoky eyes.   I have to tell you up front, that I rarely get Sephora, because the quality is professional, that is not quite what I want it to be. It’s […]

Two nude shades by Deborah Lippmann. I don’t even like nudes that much. Why did I get these? For starters, I do wear nudes from time to time. Just for a change. And also I think both lip colour and nail colour by Deborah Lippmann is great quality. So, I want it all 🙂   As much as I’m not a fan of nude makeup and manicure, I do like this nail polish and lipstick […]
