September Favourites (2012)

nedelja, september 30, 2012

I'll start with skin and hair care first. About a week ago finally I received  my package that I ordered from eBay at the beginning of the month (from UK!) which contained Soap & Glory Flake Away body scrub. Boy that was a long wait, but it was worth it. The scrub smells amazing, very similar to Miss Dior Cherie and a bit like Coco Mademoseille. I'll post a more detailed review in an upcoming post.

I've just done a review of my Love Spell duo last week (here). It's one of my favourite scents and the body butter is really nice.

My favourite scent this month is Coco Mademoseille knock off/imitation fragrance from Refan. To me it smells like camomile tea with honey mixed with patchouli (if that makes sense). In short it's like a toned down version of Miss Dior Cherie (without the strong sweetness) .

Orofluido Sahara is my saviour when my hair gets really dry in between washes (so basically every day until I wash it again).

My skin got a bit bad since I ran out of Estee Lauder's Advance Night Repair serum, so I've been using Healthy Mix original foundation rather then serum because it has a bit more coverage.

I've been really into vampy nail polishes this month and in my stash I found an old TE nail polish by Essence called Rockabilly (50's Fever TE). It's a very dark cherry shade, in some lights it looks black. I just love wearing this shade on my nails, it's quite a difference after all the pastels I've been wearing all Summer. OPI Lincoln Park After Dark is similar but more purple.

After seeing this Pixiwoo video, this has become my favourite everyday look this month. A couple of years ago, I was obsessed with finding the perfect taupe shade for me (something like Mac's Copperplate) and I found it in a mineral brow powder by Everyday Minerals in the shade Silver Gray (edit: I completely forgot to write that I found a dupe for this shadow in our drugstores. It's a mat eyeshadow by Catrice and the shade is called 350 Starlight Espresso). For me that is the perfect combination of grey with a bit of brown and it's very pigmented. I use this shade all over the lid and then NYX black eyeshadow along my lash line(my everyday shade for just along the lash line for year now). I prefer using an eyeshadow to eyeliner because it looks more soft. I use Maybelline's Dream Touch blusher in Peach on the cheeks and a nude lipstick like Mac Myth, Natural Collection Rose Petal or E.l.f. mineral lipstick in Runway Pink
Some days I went with a lighter eye make up, I just lined my top lash line and a bit on the lower lash line (really close and smudged into the lash line, to give an illusion of an invisible liner) with Max Factor's Liquid Effect pencil in Brown Blaze and then wore either my favourite peachy pink shade Shiseido Glowing Matte lipstick in PK 224 or BeautyUK's lipstick in Passion (a gorgeous dark rose shade, also leaves a nice stain). Another shade I've been loving is Bourjois lip pencil in 20 Rouge Soyeux which is the perfect red.
