Favorite Makeup Products in 2018

Just with my previous post about Favorite Skincare in 2018, it was really difficult to make a choice and narrow down my favorite makeup products to just a few. 

In 2018, makeup, for me was more about lips and glow and less about eyeshadow and this is the reason why you will get to see more luminous blushes and bronzers than eyeshadows and of course a more lipstick. I have been a lipstick lover in 2018 !


My most favorite and my most loved makeup products and definitely most used are listed below : 

 MAC Face & Body  Foundation because it looks really natural on skin and if you want more coverage you can build it up.

Favorite Skincare in 2018



I discovered such amazing and revolutionary skincare in 2018! Oils, creams, cleansers and serums with fabulous formulas that truly changed my life and helped me achieve flawless skin without making a massive hole in my bank account.

Favorite skincare in 2018 :

The Body Shop Oils Of Life Intensely Revitalizing Cleansing Oil- in- Gel - super gentle and perfect for dry skin, vegan and cruelty free formula.

Korres Olympus Tea 3-in-1 Cleansing Emultion - I love the fluid and gentle formula, it smells absolutely delicious like all the Korres products, also vegan.

Red Earth Radiance Boosting Toner with Australian Honey and Organic Pomegranate, this is more like an essence as texture, smells very natural and fresh, offers amazing relief for dry and sensitive skin.

Sukin Super Greens Skincare - food for your skin, vegan and cruelty free

Sukin Super Greens line is derived from botanicals and antioxidants which hydrate and leave the skin radiant and glowing. This Super Greens line is a blend of Kale, Spirulina, Parsley and Chlorella combined with nourishing Acai, Goji to leave a clean, brightened and revitalized complexion.


My first product from the Super Green line was the detoxifying clay mask and after, I just had to buy and try more products from this line, serum and Chia seed oil -all so good !


Sukin Detoxifying Clay Mask is a white clay based masque with Kale, Goji berry and Bentonite and is enriched with vitamins and antioxidants to detox, brighten the complexion and minimize the appearance of fine lines. This mask also has Avocado, Baobab and Rosehip Oil to promote an even skin tone through intensive hydration properties. Skin is replenished, contributing towards maintaining youthful, glowing skin. Suitable for normal skin, especially dull.
 I had to hunt a lot for this product because it was always out of stock, I finally got it and is one of my favorite clay masks. It's really detoxifying but without being too harsh on skin and without striping it of its natural oils. Compared to other masks you need layer this one on damp skin and not on dry skin, it works even better if you are using an essence before. I get amazing results when I combine this mask with an essence from The Body Shop: my skin is left so soft and feels clean and pure without being dry and annoyed. It works really good to prevent unwanted blemishes and hormonal spots because of the antioxidants and vitamins.

The Ordinary Skincare Products I Used Up Until The Last Drop - Review

I haven't been able to write any #beautyempties posts this year, but I still wanted to share some products I have been using up until the last drop and loving/liking them a lot. 

I had in mind for a while to make a post about Deciem and some of my favorite products from The Ordinary skin care line and I have to say that I am really happy I finally managed to talk a bit about these products because they do deserve a lot of attention and interest.




The Ordinary 100 % Organic Cold Pressed Maroccan Argan Oil - this was my very first bottle and I already ordered more because for me this is absolutely the best Argan Oil I have ever used. I use it mostly on my hair but also for my skin. I really hope that Deciem will introduce a bigger bottle for this oil because for someone with dry skin/hair 30 ml is really not enough and I use like a bottle of this per month, no exaggeration!!!! I mix it with my shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, I use some to make my salt body scrub, I style my hair with it and also use it as a pre-washing mask. Absolutely amazing and definitely my most favorite The Oridnary product!

The Body Shop New Matte Clay Powders


History is about to change, as from today there are more than 8 mil signatures for the CRUELTY FREE International Petition and I have no words to describe how happy I feel , thank you everyone for signing !

I just got some new goodies from The Body Shop, they been kind enough to support me and send me some of their new makeup products. Recently I have rediscovered  how amazing is The Body Shop skincare and how much is this company involved in preserving our wild life and running all kinds of petitions and campaigns to ban forever the cruel testing on animals in cosmetic industry. 



This past week I have been testing their new Matte Clay Powders and I think I am ready to share my opinion about how these powders perform, look and feel on skin. 

100 % Vegan Make-up Setting Spray from The Body Shop

Say Hello to a new product from The Body Shop, their first 100 % vegan Make-up Setting Spray



Fade and smudge resistant, this Makeup Setting Spray mist from The Body Shop is enriched with Community Trade Aloe Vera, one of the most amazing plants.
Like I mentioned before this is a vegan beauty product and cruelty free, one of the many reasons why I support and promote The Body Shop !

Drugstore Makeup - hit the pan and review

I wasn't sure if I want to blog about my little makeup project pan but I saw that a lot of people love to join this kind of beauty projects on Instagram, so I changed my mind and I decided to share my thoughts about some products here as well.



First row from left to right :

CATRICE  Sun Glow Matt Bronzing Powder. I am really loving this bronzer! It has a beautiful soft texture and blends like a dream, I would definitely buy this again if they still make it.

Festival Makeup Look With Glitter And Pearls

 So guys this was my first attempt to do a festival makeup look and it was more fun than I imagined. I was really thinking that I might be too old to wear certain amounts of glitter on my face but actually it made me feel really pretty and magical. In other words: when in doubt add glitter !


I went for a relatively simple fairy look, very easy to do and I will list below all the products used, in case you  feel inspired and want to recreate this makeup look.

 I started with a light preparation of my skin and because I went nowhere I skipped SPF but if you go to a festival or to a pool party dont forget to stay protected because skin cancer is a real thing and on top of that is also really nasty!



Pixi Liquid Fairy Lights - review, photos and color swatches

Right in time for the festival season Pixi by Petra released this beautiful glow makeup collection that has 5 stunning and super sparkly liquid eyeshadows and 2 splendid glow powders.


The Liquid Fairy Lights eyeshadows  are indeed ultra sparkly and full of 3D shimmering glitter. I was like wow, this is magical ! As you can see they look very similar to a lip gloss, in the beginning when just got them I really thought they are lip glosses, silly me!

The Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Glow Face Mask and Purifying Facial Soap


It has been more than a month since I started using products from THE BODY SHOP Himalayan Charcoal line and I am ready to talk about these 2 products and how they worked for my skin, but first I would like to mention that these 2 products were offered to me by Hivency and The Body Shop and this review, like any of my other reviews, is based on my personal experience and all opinions are my own.

 I already mentioned few things about these 2 products on my Instagram when I started using them -that was about a month ago and I thought would be really great if I would come back with a more detailed review here.


 The Body Shop formulated a series of vegan facial masks, inspired by traditional beauty remedies all over the world. The Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Mask is one of them and was made for skin that needs to release impurities and toxins to help reveal a healthy and youthful glow.
