Top 5 Most Used – January 2013

Hi everyone!

January is almost over, I don’t know if I should be happy or sad. One thing is for sure: time does fly!

Make up helped a lot to brighten my beginning of the year anxiety. I did not buy anything but did a few swaps. Getting a fun package in the mail is always going to make my day.

As far as make up application I kept it to basic, as usual. Mornings are never good for me!

My top 5 most used products for January are:

  • Real Techniques stippling brush: so far I can say I was expecting something better, but I still have to play with this new toy.
  • Clinique Redness Solutions loose powder: my current foundation is more on the dewy side, so I need lots of powder. Why do I use a dewy foundation when I don’t have dry skin? Can’t say right now, but I promise to reveal later.
  • Milani baked blush in Luminoso: this blush is pure genius! I can’t believe I did not use Milani before. Milani please start trading in the UK too!
  • Bourjois Effect 3D lipgloss: if you have access to Bourjois go and check out their lipglosses. They are the best high street / drugstore lipgloss on the market.
  • Revlon Just Bitten Kissable lip balm in 01 Honey: this product has so many reviews it doesn’t need a description from me. I just need to say one thing – Revlon please rename it! The long name is too much for me!

How was your January? Did you get the January dreaded blues?


Top 5 Most Used – July 2012

Hi everyone!

I know I have been away from the blog for a long time.
At the moment I will not be able to post proper posts or reviews on the blog, but I will be adding my Youtube videos.
Let’s start with my most used items in July. They are all great products, hope you enjoy!


Top 5 Most Used – May 2012

This month I rotated my products a lot. I used so many foundations, eye shadows, primers and even mascaras that I thought it will be really difficult to pick the top 5 most used.
However, one look at my make up collection, and these 5 just jumped into my hand.

Here are this month’s picks:

Top 5 Most Used May 2012

Top 5 Most Used May 2012

  • Wet n Wild brow and eye liner pencil in 648 taupe : Ever since I got in the mail from Judi, I have used it every day!
  • Benefit Erase paste in 02 medium: reviews on this product are divided, but it really does work for my under eye area.
  • NARS Orgasm blush: this item doesn’t need any more words from me, I just use it almost every day.
  • Guerlain Terracotta 4 Seasons bronzer in 01 Blondes: this bronzer works great with my skin tone. Also, because it has the 4 shades I can custom mix it every day.
  • Guerlain Meteorites Cruel Gardenia: to go with my bronzer, I started using the illuminator too. It is a beautiful product, which I always look forward to put on. This is a limited edition item, so I do not have a link.

Top 5 most used – March 2012

March was a difficult busy month. Make up wise I didn’t buy much, also I didn’t have time to put on too much make up.
I hardly used any shadows, and mostly focused on my face.

Here are my most used products in March:

Top 5 March

Top 5 March

  • Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24H in shade 02 Lys Rose: since I bought this foundation it has become a favorite. It is very easy to apply, lightweight formula, medium coverage with a beautiful skin finish, and most importantly it lasts all day. With other foundations, half way through the day, my skin redness starts to show through. It does not happen with this foundation. But if you need more than medium coverage, this might not be a choice for you. I do apply a thin layer and top up where needed, but I don’t see it building it up to full coverage.
  • Clinique Airbrush Concealer in 01 Fair: this is just the perfect under eye concealer for me. It brightens the eyes and hides my tiny but still there fine lines.
  • Mac Fix+ : I said it last month, and I’ll say it again – I really, really don’t know why I started using this product so late. It makes my skin look beautiful.
  • NARS Orgasm: I didn’t use any other blush this month.
  • Lancome L’Absolu Nu in shade 102 Rouge nu: to bring some color back into my life, I used it almost every day in March.

What were your favorites in March?
