Clinique Long Last Soft Matte Lipstick in Matte Mandarin


Clinique Long Last Soft Matte Lipstick in Matte Mandarin. It looks redder on the picture!

Matte Mandarin is a shade that I wanted really, really badly. It is a beautiful and very intense shade of orange that looks absolutely lovely with tanned skin. Similar shades: all the orange shades I own are either redder or pinker!

The packaging is quite quirky I would say. It does not feel posh or sophisticated (read: like Chanel) although it looks like a high end one but with £18 price tag for each lipstick maybe the packaging should feel a little bit more special? I remember when Clinique lipsticks used to be more affordable but with such a high price tag they are now starting to compete with brands where the packaging really matters... What do you think?

Review: Kelly Osbourne: MAC Cosmetics Lipstick in Dodgy Girl & Kelly Yum Yum vs Candy Yum Yum

 Kelly Osbourne: MAC Cosmetics Lipstick in Dodgy Girl & Kelly Yum Yum

Dodgy Girl is a lovely, lovely lavender purple that I could not wait to wear. Similar shades: Mac Sheen Supreme in Asian Flower is shiner. Revlon Balm Stain in Darling is less opaque and shiner. Inglot Lip Pencil in 31 is pinker. 

Kelly Yum Yum is a redder version of Candy Yum Yum. They are both very bright but to be honest they are two different colours. Bare in mind that Kelly Yum Yum looks so red on the pictures (pink shades do not photograph well) Similar shades: easily dupable.

If you only buy one thing this month...

... make it The Body Shop Honey Bronze Shimmering Dry Oil! :)

The Body Shop Honey Bronze Shimmering Oil in 02 Golden Honey

This is absolutely amazing product, which works especially well with tanned skin but do not worry if you still pale like me - it looks lovely on pale skin as well! It lasts for ages as well - if you put it on in the morning it will stay on until you wash it off. I can't describe in words how pretty it actually looks on the skin. Basically I feel and look like million dollars but in a very subtle way (not going OTT with glitter). And... the SMELL! It just smells like a lush holiday to me. Definitely something to keep hold of :) Totally recommend. A. xo

Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Complex, Unapologetic, Audacious and Shameless

Hello lovelies, the spring is finally here! I think this is my favourite part of the whole year where I just feel so energised - to me, this is when I make my *new year* resolutions and try to make them happen :) *fingers crossed*
I know these are all over the internet at the moment and they look so good that I decided I wanna try one myself as well. Or four :)

Paul & Joe Face Powder S in 001 Secret Garden: Review

Paul & Joe Face Powder S in 001 Secret Garden
Paul & Joe Face Powder S in 001 Secret Garden is a translucent powder with a silky matte finish. There is four different shades of balls: white, blue, yellow and pink. The white and blue ones are just just plain translucent but pink and yellow have got a very fine pieces of shimmer in them. LOVE. The balls are quite hard which is just perfect for applying ideal amount of powder, which is very smooth and applies very easily. And I like the fact that there is not too much shimmer in it, just silky smooth translucent powder that make your face look flawless in seconds. It is probably best suited for fair complexions due to the balls being very pale.

And... the packaging just looks and feel gorgeous! The puff is incredibly soft and all I wanna do it rub it against my face it feels so nice ha! I just love the whole design and I would probably buy it just for the pretty packaging! Oh!... And the smell is sooo addictive - I know some of you ladies do not like it but for me - it is just heaven. Seriously. (...)
