Beauty Advice

This month was the easiest to pick favorites, because I knew exactly what I used the most and which products really impressed me. I have some fun new products that I discovered as well as some of my fall staples.

Bipa Look By Bipa Matte Camouflage Concealer - 010 Light

I have been neglecting my Catrice Liquid Camouflage High Coverage Concealer and you know I absolutely love that one. But ever since I got this one from Bipa, I've just been grabbing it on daily basis. Why? Because it has even better coverage than Catrice. It dries down matte and is very long lasting. It reminds me of Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer. It doesn't grab in my lines, but is not as hydrating as Catrice, so my fine lines can look drier. But the coverage is what I love so much and the fact that the shade 010 Light is actually really light.

Catrice LE Kaviar Gauche Highlighter - C01 Eclat D'Or

Everyone is gushing over Catrice's Limited Edition Kaviar Gauche and for a good reason. It's the most luxurious looking collection with nude leather look and gold details. I too love the whole collection and am tempted to buy the brush collection, but I know I have too many brushes as it is. Not that I don't have too many highlighter also, but what can I say, it's an addition. I'm attracted to all things sparkly. This is by far one of the best Catrice highlighters. It looks pink and I do feel that it has a slight pink undertone to it (especially compared to my other highlighters), but it mostly just gives you a true champagne glow. The shimmer is so fine (like with Becca Pressed highlighters) and it looks almost like an oil on your face. It's not as obvious as some other highlighters, but you can definitely build it up to look intense.

Essence LE Made To Sparkle Highlighting & Transforming Prismatic Palette - 01 Don't Let Anyone Ever Dull Your Sparkle

When I want a yellow gold highlight, I reach for the gold shade in this palette. It's again so finely milled and gives you such a nice sheen. A bit more intense and yellow gold, but nonetheless super pretty.

Colourpop Super Shock Shadow - Kathleenlights

I absolutely adore gold shades and this one is almost leaning towards copper gold. It's the one shade that I've been putting on the lid this month whenever I wanted something more sparkly on top of all matte look. It pairs well with most neutrals and it gives you a lovely warm golden sheen. I love their creamy formula which is super pigmented and very easy to apply with your fingers.

Beauty People Flash Fix Pearl Pigment Pact - 1.Ssum Light

This is by far one of my favorite purchases this year. I've been eyeing it on Ebay, but then Jolse launched this brand and it was 30% off, so I got it. It's basically small irregular sized glitter that is very tightly pressed into this small black pot. It applies best with your fingers and because it's dry, it grabs best on top of cream products. Otherwise it may fall down. It's a copper gold shade and it looks so good on top of any eyeshadow. If you love glittery sparkly eye looks, you would adore this. I am in my "Christmas mood" ever since I got it and always find a way to apply it on top of other shades.

Bourjois Rouge Velvet The Lipstick - 12 Brunette

It has the most interesting texture that applies on the lips like a dream. You think that this can't possibly be matte of how creamy it goes on, but it instantly dries down to a complete matte look similar to matte liquid lipsticks. It's also very long lasting and surprisingly comfortable to wear. This shade is one of my favorites, as it's a brownish red that is perfect muted darker red for fall. I'll have a full review on my blog soon.

L.O.V. LIPaffair Color & Care Lipstick Matte - 950 Guilty Conscience

I already have a review of this, so I'm not going to go into details. It's a more thicker formula that applies lovely, is very pigmented and stays put very well. I just adore this brownish mauve shade as it looks so good with many different makeup looks. It's also comfortable to wear and the magnetic closing makes it feel super luxurious.

Kiko 3D Hydra Lipgloss - 18 Golden Sparkle

When I'm feeling something moisturizing and sparkly, I go for this lip gloss on top of lipsticks. It doesn't feel sticky, gives you nice amount of golden shine and makes my lips feel comfortable. I really like this shade, but the shimmer is so dense that I apply it just on the center of the lips most of the time.

Avon Mark Gel Shine Nail Enamel - Head In Clouds

For some reason I don't really like grey shade, but this nail polish color grew on me. It's the perfect light nude for fall as it goes with any outfit and for some reason makes my nails look pretty. I love pastel shades in general and I've been wearing it a lot. It's also my favorite Avon nail polish formula, because it's nicely pigmented and stays on my nails well.

The Library Of Fragrance - Baby Powder

I got sample of this fragrance from Mateja and I immediately like it. It's such a comforting, sleepy, powdery baby scent. I adore it. It may be a bit too harsh for some, but I absolutely love these warm powdery scents. Mateja has a mini review here and I agree with her that it also has a bit of that almond feel to it.

Avon Mesmerize Black

As soon as the weather gets cold, I grab this perfume. It's one of my favorites because it's a warm oriental fragrance. It's sweet in a way, because of the mandarin, but then it becomes very powerful and strong, because of the oriental base of sandalwood. It's a perfect mix of sweet, sophisticated and oriental strong.

Pimkie Notebook

They sell this notebook in a set of two. One is black with floral notes and this one is sparkly gold mess that I've been loving. It's completely smooth to the touch, so no falling down glitter, and it has silver writing in the front that says NOTES, but you almost can't see it. I've been using it as a glittery prop for my blog photos and I adore it. Obviously, since it's gold and sparkly.

Tuš - mug

I also wanted to share this adorable mug that I bought in Tuš. It immediately caught my eye. I have a thing for pastel pink in my decor this year and this one just seemed like a minimalist's dream. I also broke one of my mugs that has that same shape, so I needed a new one. Btw, I love using it for eating cereal or my morning cottage cheese mix.

Stradivarius - Coat

If you're as small as me (I like to think I'm 157 cm, but apparently I'm even smaller) and big boobed, you'll know how hard it is to find anything that isn't too big, too long and that can fit in your boobs. I've been dreaming of camel structured coat for about two years. I should also mention that I'm allergic to wool and most of these coats all have some percentage of wool in it. So when I found one without it, with a fairly good fit, I was ecstatic. I got it fitted - shortened sleeves as well as shortened the length of it. It's a bit of an oversize look, but I love it so much. Surprisingly, it's also very warm.
