Recent Beauty Buys Urban Decay Naked Basics Elizabeth Arden Lip Set Topshop Flush Blush For the past few weeks, while on blog break, i managed to accumulate a few new beauty bits that i have been craving for a long time. First on the list was the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette, the perfect size and colors to take while traveling or for daily commuting. Although i still want the Naked 3, it was more sensible to get the shades that i know i will be using every single day. Neutrals will never get out of fashion.

A Topshop cream blush was on the list for months. I got the color Flush – which is a bright fluorescent pink (looks awfully red in the picture, but definitely a pink) that gives the most flattering, forgive my pun, flush to the cheeks. I seem to reach for cream bases more in the winter time, as my skin gets drier and it doesn’t melt the product away.

The Elizabeth Arden 8H Lip Set was a bargain got in Clerys with a 50% off discount (was €40, i got it for €20). My lips were acting the maggot with all the wind and central heating, resulting in painful dryness so this set was a god sent. Set up as a lip wardrobe – there is an intensive night balm (the pot), a pre-lipstick conditioner (the lipstick balm) and a lip SPF 20 for summer days or skying holidays. Think there is still some stock left in Clerys if you need it, highly recommend.

Marc Jacobs Daisy is something that i will always have to have in my perfume collection, i will never get tired of this wonderful scent. My favorite perfume ever, a huge statement coming from the owner of a 75+ bottles of perfume collection. Scent is my crack.

As i started a slimming/health kick alongside every other woman on the planet, the Clarins Body Shapping Cream seemed like the natural choice in firming up my wobbly bits. I use it every night after shower and deep tissue massage with my Scholl machine, following the massage moves recommended by the Clarins experts – starting from the ankles and finishing up with my arms. It is gently cooling, feels luxurious and the skin looks great and pampered. Obviously a cream wont dissolve fat deposits, but it definitely makes a difference in the skin appearance. I do believe in cellulite creams!

  9. January 14, 2014 / 5:37 pm tot vazut produse de la Topshop la Pixiwoo..dar din pacate aici nu am cum sa pun mana pe ele (probabil sunt pe asos sau site-uri asemanatoare, dar nu se compara cu acel rush pe care il ai cand le vezi in fata ochilor si simti texturile :D).

    Great choices. I particularly love Naked Basics. I feel that is a palette you need whether or not you’ve got any of the other three, as they contain too few mattes.

    Oh, Daisy is one of my favourites, especially in summer! Love the blush & have always been a great fan of the 8 hour cream!
