If you have been reading my blog for a while, you probably know that my all time favourite lip gloss is Sephora Ultra Shine Lip Gloss.

I have been raving about it for more than a year.

I first picked it up quite randomly. I was looking for a clear gloss, but instead I picked up their ’42 Precious Pink Jewels’. It is a very sheer light pink shade with gorgeous and very subtle shimmer to it. When I use this stuff on top of my lipstick, the brush always picks up a little bit of the lipstick. So eventually this lip gloss changes the color and becomes less sheer and even prettier.

But today I would like to talk about another shade from the Sephora lip gloss line. The new one I got recently is ’06 Shimmery Fresh Peach’. The Sephora website describes it as ‘shimmering golden peach’ and I don’t have anything to add.

Frankly speaking, I wasn’t too excited when I saw it in the bottle as it looked quite scarry and way too gold. But when I first tried it, I saw how sheer and pretty it looked. This shade looks beautiful both on top of a lip stick and on its own, however I do prefer it with a lippie underneath.

Moving towards the quality, it is hands down the best lip gloss I have ever tried in my entire life. Personally for me it works way better than YSL, Dior, MAC, etc. It is VERY light-weight on my lips, non-sticky and long-lasting. Smells absolutely lovely, has great brush and is super hydrating.

So, basically, for $14 you get a massive tube of an amazing lip gloss! I think it’s a great price for such a high-quality lip gloss!

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 🙂

First – the best BB cream for oily/combination  skin – Garnier’s Miracle Skin Perfector.  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. 

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
