Good morning everyone 🙂
I hope you are having a glamorous Monday 🙂 Today’s post is about the 3 things I am obsessed with right now. I got into a bit of a shopping spree, inspired by the Black Friday madness. I managed to upgrade my make up collection and add a gorgeous detail to our home. So on the picture above you can see my latest finds: Dip Brow Pomade and Lipglosses by Anastasia Beverly Hills, Bonbon by Victor & Rolfe and a gorgeous faux fur throw by H&M Home.
Starting with makeup, I want to share my fascination with Anastasia Beverly Hills Cosmetics. I kept seeing them featured on various beauty bloggers’ accounts, so I thought I would give them a go. As I have mentioned in My Everyday Make-up Routine post, I have become obsessed with eye brows. This is why I simply couldn’t resist the temptation when I saw the Dip Brow Pomade. It has really interesting texture, somewhere in the middle of powder and cream. I was a bit worried that my natural clumsiness with makeup will get in the way of achieving great results, but I was wrong. It is quite easy to work with, especially when you have the right brush (I got Anastasia’s number 12 brush). It is not too liquid and the coverage is just about right- nothing too artificial but just enough to enhance your facial features. I got the Dip Brow Pomade in Taupe, which suits perfectly my natural hair color, which is between dark blonde and light brown. The other beauty staple I got from the brand is their collection of best selling lip glosses. Actually, I think they are more like liquid lipsticks really: all in gorgeous shades and providing excellent coverage without being too sticky. The feel is also enhanced by the light odor that fortunately does not make me feel like I ate a pack of marshmallows. I have to say that Anastasia Beverly Hills is not quite straightforward to find in the UK. I made my orders from the two resellers I came across via social media- Cult Beauty and Rose’s Beauty Store. I was quite happy with the service from both: everything was delivered within the promised time and in excellent condition.
My next find is Bonbon by Viktor & Rolf. I have to say I am always on the look for the next great perfume. I mentioned I don’t like the sweet smell of lip gloss. Well, I can definitely say this is not valid for perfumes. All of my favorites have that deep sweet note that makes you think of candy canes and lollipops. This is why the fragrance by Viktor & Rolf really hit a spot. If you are a fan of sweet perfumes I would reccomend you give it a go.
Finally, probably my most favorite purchase: the gorgeous cream white faux fur throw by H&M Home. I have had my eye on it for ages, but I couldn’t really accept the retail price of £50. I was pleasantly surprised when I got an email with a discount code for 50% for an item of my choice. I went for it without any second thoughts. Right now it is a part of my living room, being thrown on my favorite chair. I love how cosy it makes me feel when I snuggle in it with my morning coffee.
These are my beauty/ interior design finds for this month. Is there anything you are feeling quite obessesed about right now? I would love to hear your feedback if you are using some of the aforementioned products! Let me know in the comments!
Have a glamorous week everyone!
