I rarely talk about makeup on my blog. Sometimes I try to throw in a few beauty related posts here and there but the majority of my posts, as you may have noticed, are about baking. Let’s say that when I talk about recipes and baking I’m in my confort zone. I love baking. I’ve been baking my whole life or at least since I can remember and writing about it makes me feel calm and relaxed. However, in the last couple of years, I’ve started to enjoy makeup and beauty products a lot more than before. I love watching makeup gurus on youtube and trying to recreate on myself their amazing makeups. So, one of my resolutions for the new year is definetly try to talk about beauty and makeup a lot more on the blog. I’m trying to get out of my comfy and cozy corner and explore the room around me. If I feel confortable enough to talk about products that I love, why wouldn’t I do it? I truly believe that sometimes we stop ourselves from doing something we love just because we are afraid of what other people would think. And that’s bad! I think that if someone doesn’t like my blog, they just won’t click on the links I share. How bad can that be? Is that an enough reson to stop me from doing what I love? Absolutely not.
So here I am. Writing about a few new beauty products that I have been testing for the last couple of weeks and that I have been really enjoying. That’s why I thought that you guys would like to know about them. The first product that I’m going to talk about (and my favourite also) is the Kiko Intensely Lavish Lipstick form the Rebel Romantic Collection. I have the shade 02 and I think it is absolutely gorgeous. It is a dark pink almost plummy shade that goes perfectly with any kind of eyeshadow. I like using it with golds and rich browns on my eyes becuase it makes them really stand out. It’s formulation is very thick and pigmented which is very impressive for their price. It lasts a very long time and it goes on creamy and smooth.
Another lipstick that I’ve been enjoying recently is the L’Oréal Collection Exclusive by Naomi Watts. I have the shade Color Riche Naomi’s Delicate Rose. It is a nude/pinky shade. I think that to fully enkoy this lipstick your lips have to be very mosturized because the formula is a bit drying. But I really like the shade.
Now it’s time for a nail polish. I have the exact same shade of the lipstick exept that it is a nail polish. I Love this colour for winter because I usually like to match very dark lips with natural looking nails and this one is perfect. It lasts quite a lot and it goes on perfectly with just one coat.
Going back to lips, I bought the Essence Lipliner in the colour Satine Mauve. I love this lip pencil. When I use it, my lipsticks last a lot longer. I also use it byitself with no other listick ontop. I just put some transparent lip balm on and I’m good to go.
Onto eyes, I’ve been testing out the Maybelline Lash Sensational and I’m in love with it. It really makes my eyes stand out and the best thing is that it lasts a very long time and it doesn’t smudge all over your face at the end of the night! Best Mascara for less than 15 €.
Last but not least I’ve got a new fragrance. It is Flora by Gucci. I love this fragrance. It is fresh, sweet but not too sweet and young. At least that’s how I feel about it. I highly recommend it. I think that it would be such a lovely gift for a friend or a sister. Trust me on this one. They are going to love it!
Let me know if you have some new favorite products!
