November beauty favourites

November beauty favourites
 
Hello!
During the last couple of months I bought lots of new makeup items, some were amazing, some just really average but there are a few that I'm reaching for nearly every day so they made to the top of beauty products for the month November.
Can I just digress and say where the hell this year has gone? We are welcoming the last month of the year, how crazy is that?
Anyway, let me tell you which beauty products really stood out for me this month.

Holiday festive makeup look #1 Bronze eyes, red lips

 
Hello!
We are approaching the most festive season of the year, full of Christmas parties, meetings and Christmas itself, of course! We all want to look glamorous and special for those occasions and we reflect that with our outfits but also with makeup. I absolutely love getting ready for those special events and creating different makeup looks that suit the occasion.
So with this in mind I've decided to share with you some festive makeup looks that might be inspiration for some of you or just simple enjoyment to see. I love seeing different makeup looks and tutorials are my favourite type of videos to watch.
Obviously, in my post I will only share with you some pictures and shortly describe how I achieved the look.
Just as a disclaimer I have to state that I'm not a makeup artist, nor I consider myself an expert in applying makeup but I love doing it and I want to share my passion with like-minded people :)
 
So today's look is my classic Christmas makeup with bronze eyes and red lips.

Milani Colour Statement Lipsticks - one of the best drugstore lipsticks I've tried

Milani Colour Statement Lipstick

Hello!
Milani is a brand I've heard a lot about from American bloggers/vloggers but haven't explored myself as their products are not readily available in UK. One day I was browsing through beauty department on Amazon website and I came across some of Milani products and decided to try something. As I'm becoming slightly obsessed with lipsticks lately I ordered three of their Colour Statement Lipsticks in shades:
17 Plumrose, 21 Sangria and 25 Naturally Chic.

Makeup Revolution 'Golden Sugar' blush palette - review

Makeup Revolution Golden Sugar blush palette

Hello!
Recently I bought some new products from Makeup Revolution as you could see in my haul post, one of them being the 'Golden Sugar' blush palette (RRP £6). The palette comes in a black box which makes it look already more expensive than it is. The packaging itself is a sleek black plastic case with very secure closure which I actually struggle to open every single time, no risks of accidental opening here or your children trying to play with your blushes :) Inside there is a large mirror which is always a bonus.
What attracted me to this palette was the selection of shades which look very Autumn/Winter appropriate. I ordered it online and the only swatches I saw were the ones on the website but for the price I was ready to take the risk.

Manicure Monday #22 Essie 'Mamba'

Essie mamba
 
Hello!
This week I'm showing you a nude manicure, something different from all the darker shades that I've been loving lately. Recently I picked up some Essie nail polishes from Fragrance Direct and while they are not from the latest collections there are still some gorgeous shades to choose from.
I used to be a nude nails kind a girl but now I like to explore different colours and actually nude nail polish rarely can be seen on my nails nowadays. But after finishing my manicure I just remembered why I used to love nude nails, they look elegant, classy and are suitable for any occasion.

Makeup Revolution little haul

Makeup Revolution haul

Hello!
Since the launch of their first products at the beginning of April I've been a fan of Makeup Revolution. Not all their products I've tried worked well for me but eye shadow palettes and blushes are definitely great and I really have to stop myself from buying all of them, especially with new exciting launches every couple of months. Recently Makeup Revolution added to their collection some interesting new products and as I actually needed some things I ordered a few bits and pieces.

3 Eye Makeup Looks using the Urban Decay Vice 3 palette


Hello!
Eye shadow palettes are my favourite makeup items and I've been thoroughly enjoying the new Urban Decay Vice 3 palette (review) for the last 2 weeks loving it even more than at the beginning. I've created different eye makeup looks from very neutral to dramatic, to fun colourful ones. There are lots of possibilities as the palette consists of great range of shades. I love experimenting with my eye makeup and even though I'm not a makeup artist nor an expert in applying my makeup I still like to share with you, guys, my creations.

Diorskin Star foundation - is it worth the hype?


Hello!
If you've seen my latest 'Haul post' you know that I treated myself to the latest Dior foundation Diorskin Star. After hearing and reading so many positive reviews and considering it's THE Dior I didn't hesitate and without even trying out a sample first I just handed out my money and became a happy owner of the new foundation in the shade 020 Light Beige :)

Look Fantastic beauty box - November edition


Hello!
Look Fantastic, an excellent online retailer for every beauty enthusiast, lunched their own beauty box three months ago and it's been a massive hit since. I ordered my first box in September and loved all the products. Then I skipped the October one as I didn't believe it would live up to the first box standards but I was wrong as the box was again fantastic so without hesitation I pre-ordered November edition and I'm super excited to share with you that it's again an excellent beauty box.
Look Fantastic beauty box usually contains 6 product samples which normally are more like travel sizes so you'll really get to try the products and find out if they're suitable for you. Every month Look Fantastic beauty box contains samples of products from premium brands, which is amazing way of trying some more luxurious products without the high price tag.

Urban Decay Vice 3 palette - review and swatches


Hello!
I know, I know, yet another mega eye shadow palette :) I just love, love , love eye shadow palettes, and with all the Holidays limited editions it's so hard not to buy at least couple of them. I had wanted to buy Urban Decay eye shadow palette for some time but, first, I couldn't justify paying the high price for them, then I couldn't decide which one to go for. All the Naked palettes look very beautiful but as I have already all the dupes I just didn't want to pay nearly £40 for shades that don't excite me anymore. And then I saw some sneak peaks of the new Vice 3 palette and I knew straight away that this is going to be my first Urban Decay palette. As much as I love neutral shades I also adore bright colours and experimenting with my makeup looks so Vice 3 palette seems like the perfect combo :) As soon as it was released in UK I ordered it and I love it!

Manicure Monday #20 Rimmel 'Black Cherry'


Hello!
For this week's 'Manicure Monday' post I'm bringing you this gorgeous deep aubergine colour from Rimmel I heart Lasting Finish in Black Cherry. The nail polish contains very fine red glitter particles which make it look more like actual cherry red in some lights, unfortunately my camera didn't pick it out. Anyway it's another autumnal shade and I'm obsessed with dark nails at the moment :)
