Hurray! I’m back after 2 months of summer holidays and I’m feeling myself totally refreshed and rejuvenated and so, now, I’m back to regular blog routine. As you all know, with so many new beauty supplies that are available on the market, here comes my take on those amazing little beauties.
NYX Highlight and Contour Palette:
First of all, salute to Kardashian sisters, who has introduced contouring concept to the whole world as popular than ever before and ever since then, it has become as a famous face sculpting technique to the amazing beauty community and one such kind that is outstandingly pocket-friendly with superior quality is NYX highlight and contouring palette and I would highly recommend this product to any contouring newbie as the creamy texture of the palette works immensely well and less is more when it comes to this palette and the pro-style finish is the highlighting feature among all and so, please check it out as it comes with an incredible price of £18 only.
Eyeko Black Magic Lash Curler:
One ultimate tool that any girl needs before mascara application is a good standard eye curler and this Eyeko black magic lash curler is my latest great find and the soft touch with extreme precise finish are the best qualities about this product and it gives a quintessential lift and curl, which is essential to achieve an amazing mascara finish and also, with just £12, it is definitely a great bargain to look for. Moreover, having tried their products before like black magic mascara and skinny liquid eyeliner, I can’t praise enough of their astonishing quality finish.
MAC Satin Red:
I love MAC lipsticks as the creamy texture and ever-loving smooth application is always a pleasure to apply on the lips and when it comes to this lipstick, the satin finish and red hue looks sumptuously beautiful.
I love tangle teezer and it works great on both wet and dry hair and it tames your hair exponentially well and so, it is always a win-win for me.
I wish all of you to have a wonderful weekend and see you again on my next post and please remember to drop your amazing comments and as always, I would love to read them.
Here comes another part of much-awaited haul series and if you haven’t checked out my previous episode of haul, then click here: Beauty Haul – Mallorca where I’ve covered most of the beauty items that I’ve bought from Sephora whereas this post includes products from makeup to skin care and from nail care to perfume and last-but-not-least, some fashion items too and, on the other side, it have made a small dent in my purse but never mind as some of the items are investment beauty staples and so, I could say it as beauty justified. Hence, let’s get, set, ready for the preview of collective haul.
Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream Kiss Perfume:
You know I’m a great fan of perfumes and most of all, I’m totally obsessed with Marc Jacob Perfumes and the other perfume that I’ve tried from their range was Daisy by Marc Jacobs and I loved it a lot and in which it gave me a huge inspiration to buy this perfume.
Benefit They’re Real! Push Up Liner:
Here, I have a confession to make that I’m seriously addicted to airport duty-free shopping and I’m guessing that I’m not the only with this same mindset (Haha!). Now, let’s get into the product and to be honest, I’ve been eyeing on this product for a while as it has been hyped among the blogging community a lot. I’ve tried it today and viola! What an amazing invention as it gives a splendid gel eyeliner look with one single stroke and every penny is well justified.
Clarins Hand And Nail Treatment Cream:
This was a bargain purchase as it was priced at €12.99 and I know it is one of their besting products from Clarins and so, I can’t be wrong with it as the brand name itself narrates everything. Well, what a coincidence as I was totally running out of hand cream and there comes another excuse to buy this product.
OPI Nail & Fly:
Another great find from airport duty-free shopping is OPI Nail & Fly, which is a collective gift set that includes OPI Bubble Bath, Rapid Dry Top Coat and Avoplex Replenishing Nail & Cuticle Oil.

Today, I’m going to talk about a product that is totally essential for an everyday makeup look and I’m pretty sure you have guessed it right and yes, of course, it is foundation. Plus, as we are residing in winter cold months, we can’t rely on just tinted moisturisers or BB cream alone just like in summer and for winter months, an ideal base needs to give a perfect coverage and a good foundation alone can give a quintessential answer to this query and my latest find on this category is MAC Studio Face And Body Foundation and so, let me get straight into its exquisite features which standout as a monopoly from its peer competitors and so, stay tuned!

Formulation is the key to any foundation and Mac has literally nailed it with their amazing light weight formula which is very comfortable to use and the fluid consistency is ideal to work along with either beauty blender or foundation brush and furthermore, what makes this product to be even more special is, it comes along with added emollients which brings out a perfect moisturisation while you wear. Moreover, it gives a low to medium coverage which brings in its versatility as an everyday use and so, if you are looking for a natural and sheer finish look, then this is the perfect choice for you. Also, it is available in 13 shades which gives you a good selection of fair, medium to dark skin. Besides, the formula also promises a long-lasting staying power and ideal to use on all kinds of skin types and what else could you ask for, isn’t it? So, all-in-all, it gives a perfect, complete, non-cake-y foundation and satin finish look.

Lastly, it trades around just £15.50, which is a well worthy buy.
