Guys sorry I haven’t posted for a while. Now I have something exciting to share with you. Considering recent events in Crimea, I try to cheer myself up a bit and get out of my comfort zone.

If you like foundations that have super sheer coverage and feel very lightweight, definitely try L’oreal’s Nude Magique. It looks very natural! Mine is in the shade 150 Nude Beige.

I also got a new eye cream, which is great, and two new concealers.
First, I needed a new undereye concealer. Since I heard so many positive reviews on Rimmel’s Wake me up concealer, I decided to get it. Mine is in the shade 020 True Ivory. It’s really moisturising and covers dark circles beautifully.
Second, I got my fav concealer for pimples and highlighting. True Match by L’oreal is seriously amazing stuff. However, I couldn’t find it in my shade 3 Creme, so I got 4 Beige and it came soooooooo pale, like almost white, so I am a little upset. But it really is a wonderful concealer.

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.

I have been quite obsessed with Sephora makeup lately and this bronzer is not an exception. First of all, it looks very lux and expensive and it has a big mirror. Second, it’s HUGE!!! It reminds me of Tom Ford bronzer, but it’s way cheaper. And finally, it’s a beautiful product, that looks very natural on your skin and doesn’t make it look orange. It adds some color to your face without being too much. Not great for contouring your cheekbones because it’s quite light, but I love using it for my temples and forehead.

Let me start by saying that this palette is such a luxurious makeup item. For $85 you get a beautiful palette that looks like a black wallet when it is closed. But when you open it, it reveals a big mirror, a miniature version of Diorshow mascara, six gorgeous eye shadows, two lip plumpers, two lipglosses, face powder and two little brushes. For this kind of price you obviously get luxe products, that are great quality.

This palette makes a perfect present. I personally received it as a Birthday gift from a friend.

The eye shadows in this makeup palette are shimmery. There is a beautiful pearly highlighting color, two brown shades on the left, and on the right you get perfect colors for Fall – pink, taupe color and a gorgeous bugundy.

The lip plumpers are lovely too. They are like lip balms and after you’ve applied them you get cold and tingly sensation on your lips.

The lipstick are very flattering colors – very natural, so they will most likely suit every skin shade.

Powder is great too, however for someone with oily skin like myself, nothing works better than Rimmel’ s Stay Matte powder.

And, finally, the mascara. This miniature Diorshow has a tiny wand, hence it’s perfect for your lower lashes. Also it’s great for trips if you don’t like to carry a full-sized mascara.

Overall, it’s a beautiful high-end product that will make any girl happy. It’s perfect for someone who already has a ton of makeup so this palette would be a luxurious addition to the collection.

I am not one of those bloggers who do a favourites post every month. I usually use the same stuff, so it would be quite boring to read for you guys. But during October I’ve been trying out some new products and some of them are pretty amazing.

Starting with this fab sunglusses I got in the end of August. I love these but I am not a huge sunglasses lover – they always hurt my nose and give me headaches. The reason I got these is because my Accessorize ones got broken, so I purchased these from Asos for only $10! I was shocked when I received them – they felt really well done and super amazing quality. They look very expensive and I get lotsa compliments about these sunnies. Also I think everyone needs a pair of cheap sunglasses so that you won’t be afraid of breaking them. That is the reason I use these most of the time and my Marc Jacobs ones are always at home

Next – my favourite perfume for Fall. I have never included a perfume into my favourites post as far as I remember, but since I’ve been using Midnight Fantasy by Britney Spears non-stop during October, I thought I’d mention it. I got it a while ago in Bangkok airport, mine is a 50 ml bottle that has one third of it left now. It’s a sweet but not too overwhelming scent. I know that most people use it in the evining but for me it’s a 24h perfume that is very feminine. I am not very good at describing perfumes, but if you like sweet and quite deep scents, definitely try it out.

Argan Oil Nutrition Infusing Mask by Argan Deluxe is something I have been raving about for a while. Great product for split and dry ends. I have done a separate review on this hair treatment so I am just going to say that it is my all-time favourite mask that makes my hair healthy, shiny and more voluminous.

Going to my makeup favourites, I’d like to mention a product that I’ve talked about in my previous posts – Rimmel’s Kate Matte Lipstick in 107. Perfect burgundy shade, that doesn’t smudge (for more details check out my previous posts).

And finally, my two last makeup products that I adore, both by L’oreal – True Match foundation and concealer.

True Match foundation by L’oreal ( I am in the shade R3-C3) is one of the best drugstore foundations 

I have ever used. It’s better than some high-end ones even. It’s not too cakey, blendable and feels light on my skin, but also gives me a decent amount of coverage. It really does kind of adapt to your skin, which I love. Great for normal to combination skin. 

My last favourite is  True Match concealer. I received it as a present from my aunt. Mine is in the shade ‘3 Cream’ and it’s a very neutral beige color with yellow undertones. When I started using it in August I was very tan and it worked perfect, and now when I am quite pale I still use it and it doesn’t look dark at all. So it adapts to your skin too, just as the foundation. It has quite thick and dry consistency, so I definitely recommend it for concealing blemishes and any kind of redness, but not under eye circles.  Overall, the best concealer I have ever tried, will definitely repurchase it.

I know, I have mentioned this palette already in my Summer favourites post, but I thought since I like it so much, I should tell you guys more about it.

Image

Mine is in shade ‘taupemodel 06’, it has 4 shimmery colours and the dark brown is matte. I like that it’s really small and so versatile – you can create so many looks with it, from nudes to dark smokeys. Plus the matte eyeshadow can be used as brow tint if you have darker brows. You can also apply it instead of your eyeliner. A very good ‘basic’ palette. You can buy it in Sephora for $24.

Image

The eyeshadows are great quality and I know this palette will last me good couple of years, so I definitely think it’s worth the money.
