Top Five of the Month

This month I've been loving...

H&M HIGH IMPACT EYE COLOUR eyeshadow link 
I chose the colour Baci di dama which is a warm gold colour, super beautiful, very pigmented and last pretty well on the lids. I'm very surprised with this eyeshadow, I would like to get some other shades.g

H&M PURE VELVET CREAM BLUSHER link 
I instantly feel in love with the shade Dusty rose, a soft mauve pink that gives a natural flush to the cheeks. It's a lovely colour for this season.  The product is creamy, non sticky and blends beautifully into the skin. 

LAURA MERCIER CREME LIP COLOUR LIPSTICK IN SPICED ROSE link
I'm literally obsessed with this lipstick. It's the perfect natural lip colour. It's a soft mid-tone rose that goes on beautifully on the lips. It's super creamy and moisturising and stays on a reasonable amount of time. 



MAC LIP LINER IN DERVISH link 
I've been wearing this a lot alone all over my lips, and also underneath other lipsticks.  This is a natural mauvey/pink colour with a hint of shimmer, but the shimmer doesn't transfer much. It's the lighter version of Soar and the perfect natural lip colour. Although the pencil is pigmented it can be quite drying and hard to apply.

RIMMEL MATCH PERFECTION 2IN1 CONCEALER link
How did I not try this before? This stuff is amazing! I love the soft brush application. It's creamy and thick enough to cover the dark circles. It does a brilliant job concealing and brightening the under eye area.

Autumn Lippies

My favourite lippies this Autumn

KORRES LIP BUTTER IN WILD ROSE. Perfect lip balm to soothe lips and add a hint of colour. It moisturises well the lips and the colour is very natural. Wild rose is a sheer burgundy colour. 

LAURA MERCIER SPICED ROSE. I'm obsessed with this lipstick. It's a soft mid-tone rose, for me the perfect natural lip colour. It goes on beautifully and stays on a reasonable amount of time.

NARS SATIN LIP PENCIL IN RIKUGIEN. This is a rose pink, muted rose colour with a frosted finish. It's a lovely shade for everday use, everyday my-lips-but-better colour. The texture is extremely soft and it glides on like butter. It's creamy and moisturizing and it feels nice and comfortable on the lips. 

KIKO INTENSELY LAVISH LIPSTICK IN LUSTY PEONY.  Beautiful lipstick from the Kiko's Rebel Romantic collection. It's a gorgeous mauve pink deep nude colour. The lipstick is pigmented and creamy, it glides onto the lips nicely and its really comfortable to wear. 

REVLON LIP BUTTER IN RASPBERRY PIEThis is a gorgeous medium raspberry colour. It's creamy and hydrating yet offers a really decent amount of coverage.

MAC LIP LINER IN DERVISHI've been wearing this alone all over my lips, and also underneath other lipsticks. It's a natural mauvey/pink colour with a hint of shimmer, but the shimmer doesn't transfer much. It's the lighter version of Soar and the perfect natural lip colour.

MAYBELLINE COLOR ELIXIR CARAMEL INFUSEDThis is a natural creamy pink shade with brown undertones. I really love the formula of this; it's super creamy, smooth and glossy. It feels great on the lips, it's moisturising and not sticky at all.

Autumn everyday makeup

Tuesday, 27 October 2015

Autumn everyday makeup. These are my current favourites products.


HIGH IMPACT EYE COLOUR eyeshadow in the shade Baci di dama 
It's the only eyeshadow I've been using. It's a warm gold colour that looks gorgeous by itself on the lids. It's super pigmented and lasts pretty well. 

PURE VELVET CREAM BLUSHER in the shade Dusty rose 
I love this creamy blush from the new H&M beauty range.  It's a soft mauve pink that gives a natural flush to the cheeks.  The product is creamy, non sticky and blends beautifully into the skin. 

MAYBELLINE LASH SENSATIONAL
This one of the best mascaras I have seen in a long time. It goes on easily and it has an immediate impact on the look of the lashes. The curved brush really helps to cover each individual lash. The result is natural and the lashes look fuller and volumised. 

LAURA MERCIER SPICED ROSE 
I'm obsessed with this lipstick. The colour is so perfect. It's a soft mid-tone rose and the perfect natural lip colour. It goes on beautifully and stays on a reasonable amount of time. 

For my base I use on of my all-time favourite foundations, the Chanel Vitalumiere which has a light formula but still gives a good amount of coverage and my go-to concealer, Maybelline Fit Me.

New from Kiko Cosmetics

Friday, 23 October 2015

KIKO EYEBROW SCULPT link

Kiko has launched a brand new eyebrow pencil! I used to love the original brow eyepencils from Kiko but this new one looks much much better. 

The pencil is double ended with a spooly at one end and the twist up pencil at the other. It reminds me to the Arch Brow pencil by Hourglass, the packaging is quite similar and both have that triangular-wedge shape which makes the application easy and precise. 

The texture is not really creamy; is more like a wax-powder hybrid but it looks really natural and it stays really well.  It's really easy to draw on, you only need a light touch, perfect for filling any gaps and adding shape. The brush is also great, good shape and quite stiff. 

There is a good range of  colours available. There are six shades in total: light blonde, blondes & redheads, Brunettes, Auburn, Deep brunettes and blackhaired. 

Price: 6.90 euro/pound

If I had to pick 3 lipsticks

Monday, 19 October 2015

I love lipsticks and I have so many in my kit. But there are always a few favourites that you couldn't live without. If I had to pick three lipsticks from my collection these three would be the ones:

LIP BALM - DIOR LIP GLOW I wear lip balm most of the time and this one is my all time favourite. It's moisturizing and it also contains SPF10. I love the colour it gives to my lips, a beautiful and natural pink colour. This is one of those lip balms that adjusts to your unique ph to create a customized pink shade and enhance you natural lip colour.

NATURAL LIP - NARS DOLCE VITA.This is the most perfect nude colour. It's a sheer dusty rose but provides nice pigmentation. It's hydrating and long lasting. I love this lipstick so much!

BOLD LIP - MAC GIRL ABOUT TOWN. I'm not a big fan of red lipsticks, I find they don't suit me. I much prefer the fuchsias and magentas. This is such a gorgeous shade and it brightens the whole complexion. It's a bright fuchsia pink with blue undertones and a satiny finish. This is creamy, opaque and long lasting. 


If you had to choose 3 lipsticks to be your lip wardrobe, what would they be?

Obsessed with... Mac Dervish

Friday, 9 October 2015

Mac Lip Liner in Dervish

I feel like people are so into Mac lip liners now. The colour Soar is super popular at the moment. Everyone seems to love it. But I don't find it flattering on me, I find it too bold on my fair skin. 

So the other day in Mac I decided to pick up the shade Dervish instead. This is a natural mauvey/pink colour with a hint of shimmer, but the shimmer doesn't transfer much. It's the lighter version of Soar and the perfect natural lip colour.

I've been wearing it alone all over my lips, and also underneath other lipsticks. Although the pencil is pigmented it can be quite drying and hard to apply. So make sure you add some lip balm to the lips.

I'm obsessed with it! It's a gorgeous colour perfect for fair complexions. If you are looking for a neutral mauvey pink lip liner I would definitely recommend this. It's a great alternative for those who think the shade Soar is too dark. 

Make sure to check this out!




Favourite Mac brown eyeshadows

Wednesday, 7 October 2015
mac soba, mac bronze, neutral mac eyeshadows, mac eyeshadows brown eyes

I love neutral eyeshadows. I specially love warm browns. These are my favourite browns from Mac. Two staples in my collection and that I wear all the time.

They're both universal and wearable colours that would work with all skin tones. Two must haves for neutral lovers and two great choices for Mac newbies that want to get their first eyeshadow.

SOBA is such a unique colour. It doesn't look like anything special in the pan but it's actually so pretty on . I love it so much that I'm considering wearing this on my wedding day. It's the perfect natural shade, a kind of my lids but better colour. It's a warm golden brown with tiny gold shimmer particles. It's got something special in it that makes brown eyes pop! It's not the most pigmented Mac eyeshadow but it works well. It goes on beautifully.

BRONZE is a true bronze colour. A super beautiful bronzy shade. The pigmentation is excellent, so buttery soft. It's a great colour to wear all over the li. It can be worn alone or for a more smokey eye look. It blends perfectly and lasts all day. It's also flattering on all different eye colours.  This is a must have for brown eyeshadow lovers!


Have you tried any of these? What's your favourite Mac eyeshadow?

New H&M Beauty Haul

Monday, 5 October 2015
hm beauty haul, hm beauty review,




H&M has recently come out with a new range of beauty and makeup products. The collection includes tons of different beauty products from makeup to hair care and everything looks amazing. 

The packaging is absolute beautiful! It's minimalist, sleek and super chic. I love the white and gold details. The material is hard plastic, it feels quite cheap though. It's very lightweight, compact so is perfect for traveling.

This is what I picked up:

HIGH IMPACT EYE COLOUR eyeshadow link 
I chose the colour Baci di dama (in italian means lady's kisses ;)) which is a warm gold colour, super beautiful, very pigmented and last pretty well on the lids. I'm very surprised with this eyeshadow, I would like to get some other shades.

PURE VELVET CREAM BLUSHER link 
How gorgeous is the hexagon packaging?! I instantly feel in love with the shade Dusty rose, a soft mauve pink that gives a natural flush to the cheeks. It's a lovely colour for this season.  The product is creamy, non sticky and blends beautifully into the skin. 


Have you tried anything from the new H&M beauty line yet?
