Monthly Favorites: April & May 2012


Again my favorite foundation for the last two months was Revlon Colorstay, I adore this foundation! I've  been also using alot the Nars Angelica/Laguna duo for blush and bronzer and Albatross highlighter.

Swatches of Nars Laguna, Angelica and Albatross

The last two months I've been using my Mac neutrals palette a lot and my favorite shadows were Blanc Type, Soft Brown, Espresso, Satin Taupe and Carbon. From my eyeliners my favorite ones were Mac Feline and Make Up For Ever Αqua Eyes 0L. My favorite mascara was Mac Zoom Fast Black Lash, this is a very underestimated mascara, it's not bad actually I like it a lot, it makes my lashes fuller and blacker.

My favorite face brush was Sigma F25 Tapered Face Brush. I use this brush mostly for the application of bronzer, it's also good for powder application and contouring. Favorite eye brush was Mac 266 small angle brush. I use this brush with every type of eyeliner: gel, cream, khol even with eyeshadows. 

I love Mac lipsticks! For the last two months my favorites were Costa Chic and Viva Glam Lady Gaga. The first one is a beautiful bright coral, awesome for summer months and the Gaga one is a bright light pink. It's similar to Saint Germain but more wearable.

These nail polishes are both neon! The first one is China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy a bright, bright coral. Awesome! and the second one is the famous Nails Inc. Baker Street, a bright cobalt blue.

I'm into beauty oils lately. Hair oils, face oils, body oils etc. But this one is something else! As you can see above, I've finished a bottle of Mac's Cleanse off oil and bought a new one, right away. It lasted me  a whole year! Really! It's unbelievable for me 'cause I wear make up very often. It's very good at removing make up and even waterproof  products such as mascaras. Man! where have you been all my life?

The last two months I've been using mostly these two mini perfumes. Naomi Campbell Cat Deluxe At Night and Beyonce Heat Rush. They are both fruity-sweet scents suitable for spring and summer. The Beyonce one was given to me as a gift from my bestie Lea, kisses to her!

I bought this St. Tropez Self Tan Mousse two months ago and I've been using it very often. It is quick drying (that means no more waiting half hour before getting dressed :-)) and gives a natural golden tan to your skin.

Last but not least are two hair products that I enjoy using every time I take bath and they are TIGI S factor Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner. They make my hair soft and smooth and they smell delicious.


  1. Costa Chic is gorgeous, another lovely coral that needs to join my collection!
    I wish I could fake tan, but I am crap at it! I end up streaky no matter what I do, so I am resigned to being pastey.

    1. Faking tan is tricky at first, but with a little practice you become an expert. Oh I forgot to mention, that I use a tanning mitt, I think using a mitt makes a difference too. xxx

  2. Is that a DIY palette you have there for your eye shadow or did you buy it or did you get it like that? Thanks for sharing. :)

    2. No, I didn't get it like that, I got the palette and then got the eyeshadows, 1-2 at a time and filled it. Btw some of the e/s are pressed pigments and some are depotted MAC eyeshadows so I could call it DIY palette :) x
