Autumn Pickspetek, september 26, 2014
This year feels like one long autumn already, so there is not better time to dust of the berry lippies, chocolate eyeshadows and deep, sultry scents.
A proper matte burgundy shade that is just super glam and pretty. It lasts ages on the lips as well.
My ultimate autumn shade - a matte deep purple-burgundy colour. It looks great as a stain as well.
A glossy deep burgundy-purple colour, but a bit more desaturated/grey than 107. Again can be worn as a stain and is easy to apply precisely due to a great applicator.
Brown Smoky Eyes
A great warm chocolate shade with tiny gold shimmer that is superbly pigmented. It's hard to find, though not impossible, just look online. Riche Mono Eyeshadow in Die for Chocolate and Catrice Liquid Metal 090 Nougat It Right are similar.
MAC Mulch, Bronze and Satin Taupe
Mulch is similar to L'Oreal's Endless Chocolat, just a bit cooler, lighter and with poorer pigmentation. Bronze is a warm bronze shade and Satin Taupe is a cool taupe-brown shade with a hint of purple.
The perfect matte taupe eyeshadow. One of my favourite eyeshadows ever.
CATRICE Absolute Eye Colour Mono 570 Plum Up The Jam
Deep purple shade with gold shimmer. Looks more brown-purple on the eyes when blended out, but it can still make you look like you've been punched. This bad boy brings out the blue in my grey eyes like no other.
MAYBELLINE Color Tattoo in 35 On and On Bronze
A cream eyeshadow in a shimmery brown-bronze shade. Works great as a base.
URBAN DECAY 24/7 Glide On Liner in Bourbon
My favourite formula of eyeliners in a warm brown colour with gold shimmer. Amazing on blue-grey eyes.
KARDASHIAN BEAUTY Deeply Felt Eyeliner
Black eyeliner adds the final touches to the look. Deeply Felt is currently my favourite felt tip eyeliner because it's super easy to apply precisely and lasts all day.
To compliment the berry lips, a nice gentle flush of a natural blush on the cheeks. Mandy-rine is a natural apricot shade.
An amazing rosy-neutral shade that goes with everything. My favourite blush ever.
A very natural, warm, light beige-pink-peach shade with delicate shimmer, which gives a soft flush to the cheeks with a subtle glow. It's almost like a light mix of a blush, highlighter and bronzer in one, adding just the right amount of warmth to the cheeks.
An interesting red because I notice it changes colour depending on the light. Under artificial yellow lighting it looks deep wine-burgundy with more purple hues (leaning to vampy territory, but still not too dark), while under natural light it's a more medium cherry red.
A burgundy wine shade, so a deep red with a bit of purple hues in it.
The most classic, true deep red shade.
A taupe shade with gold shimmer. It smells like cinnamon on the nails.
The deep reds look the same and they are very, very similar in real life.
ESSIE Sole Mate
Deep cherry, purple- burgundy loveliness. A supposed dupe of Chanel's Rouge Noir. This will be my ultimate shade this autumn.
A warm plum with tiny red shimmer. It looks a lot more purple on me than on other people.
A frosty navy that is leaning a bit to purple and less vibrant due to a grey undertone.
Dark, inky navy blue with a cream finish. It was a part of the 2013 Fall Collection, but you can still get it in some places like Beauty Bay.
An amazing quality body butter that is deeply moisturising and features a nicely blended mix of soft honey note with a fresh wildflowers scent. Love it!
A super moisturising dry oil for skin in colder months with a nice sweet nutty-floral scent. I called this in my review the ultimate lazy girl's moisturiser as it's so easy to use.
Luxuriously feeling creamy shower gel that smells so good - not as described, but deep, sultry and clean.
A favourite in all seasons, it's lovely oriental vanilla-amber scent fits particularly well into colder months. The thicker formula is great for dry hair and helps fight the frizz caused by the increased humidity.
Not only does it smells fantastic like a sophisticated mix of coconut and caramel (the scent really lingers), it also nourishes the hair well and leaves it super shiny.
I adore this scent. It's so sweet and cozy, like a fluffy jumper - just perfect for this time of year. I smell mostly berries with warm vanilla and sugar notes.
This is such a sweet syrupy scent, yet so cozy and warm. Can Can is like a more grown up version of Fantasy that is still girly, but without notes of vanilla or chocolate. I love wearing this is the autumn, it just fits into this season so well.
The most grown-up scent I own and great for colder months. It's a sexy, creamy goodness with notes of orchid, mahogany, amber and musk.
L'OCCITANE Ambre eau de toillete
Much to my regret already discontinued. These two may be similar: L'Occitane Ambre Santal and Yves Rocher Voile d'Ambre.
A lovely deep, warm woody and amber fragrance with a Mediterranean twist. Great for mixing with vanilla or coconut scents.
REFAN imitations of La Vie est Belle (n.034) and Roberto Cavalli (n.024)
When it comes to fragrance, you don't always have to splurge. I'm a huge fan of Refan imitation fragrances and these two are some of my favourites.
N.024/Roberto Cavalli is a very heavy, rich, balmy and strong oriental-floral fragrance. This is a scent for those who want to be noticed.
N.034/La Vie est Belle smells like an expensive box of pralines with a fruity filling (black currant and pear), but not completely gourmand because of the floral notes (iris, orange blossom, jasmine) and patchouli.
PRETTY POLLY 200 Denier Fleecy Tights
I'm the one who's almost always cold as well as a girl who wears dresses and skirts 99% of the time (honestly, I can't remember the last time I wore trousers). To keep my skinny pins from freezing, fleecy tights are my best friend in cold weather. I've tried pairs from several brands and Pretty Polly's are by far the best. I swear, these things are better than trousers! Aside from being super soft and warm, they are also super comfy. I recommend them to everyone (I buy them on Asos).
Have a great day!
