These are the lip products that I discovered and enjoyed using in 2013. The reason I didn’t include my Sephora lip gloss or Vivienne Sabo Lipstick in 112 is because I first tried them in 2012.
Going back to my lip favourites of 2013, I’ve chosen 5 products – 2 lipsticks, 2 lip glosses and 1 lip stain.
The lipsticks are: Kate Matte by Rimmel in 107 (gorgeous and very pigmented burgundy) and Creme Cup by Mac (lovely neutral pink that looks good on so many people).
The lip glosses are: Glam Shine 6h by L’oreal in 102 Always Pink (identical to my natural lip color, looks good on it’s own and locks the lipstick for up to 4 hours) and YSL golden gloss in 20 (I didn’t like it at first, but it works great with my nude Rimmel lipsticks).
And finally, Apocalips by Rimmel in Nude Eclipse is the perfect nude. This lip stain stays on well and smells good. Lovely product!
Overall, I’ve tried so many great makeup products during 2013. Right now I am looking dorward to buying some lip glosses from Tanya Burr’s Lips & Nails collection. She is a great makeup artist and I am sure the products she is launching are going to be luxe quality.

Halloween was exciting and cool this year. Although I haven’t done any particular costume, I thought a burgundy lipstick would finish up my look.

The coat I am wearing on this picture is from Mango. It was out of stock in my size absolutely everywhere, but I was lucky to find it at House of Fraser and only one piece available! I got quite a few things lately, so fashion haul is coming up!

I curled my hair with my Babyliss curling wand.

As for the lipstick, I am wearing a blend of two.

I find that it is quite complicated to find a perfect shade of burgundy and red lipsticks. But these two bad boys work great for pretty much any skin tone and hair color. They are both in the shade 107( a universal burgundy number or something?!)), one is from Vivienne Sabo, one – from Rimmel. Although the shades are almost identical, these lippies are quite different. The Rimmel one is matte, hence it is drying but at the same time it’s long lasting and doesn’t smudge. The Vivienne Sabo lipstick is one of my alltime favourites, they are VERY moisturising, like a lip balm. But with a bright shade like this it’s not always good, because it does smudge. So what I do, I usually apply the Rimmel one, and then add a tiny bit of my Vivienne Sabo lippie in the centre of my lips to keep them hydrated.

I have been a fan of the original version of Rimmel Kate lipstick for more than a year now. It is not the most moistuisng lip product, but the pigmentation is great and I love how long lasting it is. Especially if you put a lip gloss on top, you don’t need to reapply it for a couple of hours. Plus, it is a drugstore product, so it is very affordable. I also think that Rimmel lipsticks are similar quality as Mac, but they are twice cheaper.
But going back to the Matte version of Kate lippie, they are pretty much the same quality as the original ones. I recently got colors 113 (beige) and 107 (rich burgundy). The burgundy is absolutely beautiful for Fall and I adore the pigmentation of this product. If you are looking for a perfect burgundy, definitely try this one because it looks amazing on different skin tones.

I wanted to do an August favourites first, but then I realized I used pretty much the same stuff during Summer. So these are the products I enjoyed using for a while now and that I plan to continue using.

These are my basics and products I can survive on πŸ™‚

First – the best BB cream for oily/combination Β skin – Garnier’s Miracle Skin Perfector. Β I got this in ‘Light’ and ‘Medium’ (they have only 2 shades), but now since I have tan I use the darker one. It’s great! Blends well, looks well and feels really light on my skin. It is also very buildable – sometimes I just put a tiny bit, but sometimes if I go out and want some more coverage, I use more of this BB cream and it definitely works well, better than most highend foundations I tried! So yeah, definitely thumbs up for another lovely Garnier product. And if you have sensitive, dry or normal skin, they have these BB creams for different skin types – just check your local drugstore.

Second – my Vivienne Sabo mascara, another basic product for me. It makes my lashes look thick and long, and has a more natural finish. If you want a dramatic look, just add more coats.

Third – my favourite Summer lip products, I’ve been using non-stop lately. Mac’s ‘Creme Cup’ and Rimmel’s nude in ’03’ look fabulous on tan skin. Plus these lipsticks are great quality. As for the lipgloss from Sephora – ’42 Precious Pink Jewels’, it’s gorgeous. I don’t know what else to say about it, because I have mentioned it in so many posts, but it’s really lovely. Great brush, delicious smell, lightweight non-sticky formula, vibrant colors and it definitely keeps my lipstick on so much longer. Best lipgloss ever!

And, finally, my last beauty favourite – my little eyeshadow palette from Sephora. I love the packaging, because it’s really small and fits in every makeup bag. The eyeshadows are great quality. Especially I love the highlighting shade, which looks gorgeous in iner corner of the eye.Β 

For my music favourites, I’ve discovered a new band, I have never heard of before. Architecture in Helsinki is an amazing indie pop band from Australia (yeap, I thought they were from Finland too at first :).

These are my favourite songs right now

And finally, my favourite Summer 2013 movie isΒ

Hi guys!

Just wanted to show you guys these two lovely items by MAC, that actually were a gift from my friend Alina. I luuuuuuuve them!!!!

I am really excited whenever I get something from MAC, because where I live now we don’t have any MAC store 😦 And yes, unfortunatelly such places do exist 😦 So every time I travel or my friends go somewhere, my target is MAC))) Obviously, there is a lot of fuss going on around this makeup brand, but come on guys their quality is AMAZING!!! Honestly, I have never been disappointed with a MAC product.

Image

Lovely, right?))) Okay, let’s start with the blush. I’ve been looking for a perfect coral/peachy color for a while now, and from the moment I saw this blush in color ‘Peaches’, I knew wanted it. Again, the quality is great, lovely texture, the blush is very buildable. But I think this shade looks better on deeper skintones, so I am looking forward to being tan again))

Image

The lipsticks is very nice too. Love the packaging and that it’s very moisturising, also it tastes good, not too sweet. It looks much more beigy/brown than on the photo. The lippy is in color ‘Creme cup’, if you are wondering. I think it’s a perfect pink/nude color, that will suit anyone, no matter your skin tone or hair color.
