Lancome: Lash Idole - review

* AD - Gifted for review 

As much as I try to avoid thinking about the pandemic, the impact of the situation on every aspect of our lives is undeniable. Even makeup trends are affected. For obvious reason, we are switching from full-face makeup to natural no-makeup makeup looks and thanks to face masks the main focus is the eyes. That’s probably why the makeup industry is currently living through the golden age of mascaras. You know well that I mostly prefer drugstore mascaras and my go-to brand is L’oreal, however, I am no stranger to high-end products either. 

St.Tropez: Bronzing Water Mist - Review

 AD - Gifted for review

I was never too much into fake tan or tanning beds. I find self-tanning foams and shower gels too much of a hassle and since I am claustrophobic, tanning beds are a huge no-no. The only fake tan I really enjoyed is the spray-on-tan done in a saloon - there is a minimum effort from my side and it looks nice and even. I also liked a product called Luxe oil from St.Tropez but then it got discontinued. 

Neutrogena: Bright Boost Collection

* AD - Gifted for review. 

For any reason, Neutrogena seems to always slip my mind although I am usually impressed with any products of theirs I try. Last time, It was the Curcuma cleansing foam (which is one of my ultimate favourites now), so I decided to try the brand new Bright Boost collection. The collection is supposed to boost the brightness and even the skin tone. This is due to highly concentrated Neoglucosamine which is a amino sugar compound that boosts skin surface cells turnover by up to ten times. On top of it all, it is apparently a building block for a hyaluronic acid. Moreover, these products are full of antioxidants for skin (vitamin C and vitamin E). This collection is suitable for all skin types. 

Bobbi Brown: Luxe Glow

AD - gifted for review 

I always wanted to try some makeup from Bobbi Brown. Her makeup is a classic and I feel like such a huge makeup lover as myself, I should have at least one of her products in my collection. Thanks to Notino, I was able to get a Luxe Glow gift set. It contains a Highlighting Powder Duo Pink Glow/Sunset Glow, precise blending brush and Luxe Lip Color in a shade Neutral Rose. All these products come in a gorgeous luxurious looking black makeup bag.  


Over the past few months or even years, I have become an eyeshadow palette collector (it sounds better than makeup hoarder lol). I am sure if covid did not happen, my collection would be smaller but hey.. retail therapy does work. Today, I would like to show you my favourite pieces from my collection.

Anastasia Beverly Hills x Amrezy

Although this is not the best quality palette on this list, it is my favourite due to its colours. I think they are very playful allowing me to experiment a little as well as create nice everyday looks. Palette offers countless combinations and it is composed of matte shadows, shimmer shadows, one holographic shadow and two glitters so there is really something for every occasion. The only downside is that some of the matte shades can be too powdery.

Schwarzkopf: Blond Me - Review

* AD - Gifted for review. 

I don't know how about you but I have been counting every day till the hairdressers are opened. For Scotland, that day is on the 5th of April and it feels like waiting for Christmas. 
Until then, I had to take care of my hair on my own. I would never cut my hair and I successfully resisted the urge to buy hair colour and just dye it myself so I mainly focused on maintaining the current colour as bright and alive as possible.
