Wish wish wishlist :)

Posted by A small Cat at 17:51 17 comments









Hello beauty lovers!!!

I cannot believe that June is here already? Seriously, this year is flying by!!
After seeing so many gorgeous beauty products on some of my favourite blogs I've decided to do a wish list of all the products I'm now lusting over :)

After reading an amazing review on Millie's blog Pearls and Poodles ( She is gorgeous I love her Blog!! ) I fell in love with Clarins Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balm in 08 crystal berry .It looks like liquid frozen in time, and everything about it outward appearance says summer to me, I need it!!!

Laura Mercier's tinted moisturizer is wonderful for that flawless, effortless look. Its not the cheapest, but I'll be happy spending money on quality especially since most of beauty blogger rave about it!

I recently noticed that there in no more room in my makeup bag for my small but yet fast growing makeup collection !!! This Muji drawer storage  it's not only extremely cute, but it will also help me keep my makeup organised and tidy at the same time :)

Being the blush addict that I am, I fell in love with Dollface innocent pink flush and I am now on a mission to get it!!  :)  I've heard so many positive words about Tarte Cosmetics, it would be a ''sin'' not to own at least one gorgeous blush :)

I have recently fallen in love with some pieces from Zara especially those Ankle strap sandals. I love how feminine they are and make feet look so elegant. A MUST HAVE for this summer!!

I do not own any purple ''ish'' blushes, I just haven't found the right one yet, they either were to dark or just not the colour I was looking for, until I saw this colour Gentle by MAC.  It’s a plum-tinged pink with fine gold shimmer, such an amazing colour!!

Clarionic has been on my list since I ever heard about it, everybody who owns it ,loves it!!! I would love to treat my skin well by cleansing in completely.:)

MAC 224 it's a must have from MAC brushes! It blends anything in an INSTANT! It also works as a good crease brush! Mac brushes are amazing!! They're all so soft! This one would make a fine addition to my collection :)

And last but not least is another MAC product, Paint pot in Painterly,it is a favourite of so many - cream based multi purpose cosmetic item , fantastic  as an eye shadow base-primer :)


What have you been lusting over recently?Which items would you pick from my wish list?

Benefit POREfessional primer review

Posted by A small Cat at 12:28 17 comments








...POREfessional is the UK's best-selling primer Quickly minimise the appearance of pores & fine lines for smoother-than-smooth skin !

Despite having this product for a week , I am already in love with it!!
It does what it says - minimize pores - amazing!!!

Actually I think The Porefessional gives just the right amount of "porefection", the look of my skin is much improved when I wear this product, it really gets a near flawless look :)
I love the balm-like texture and how it looks tinted but goes on translucent.
I use it on my nose a little on my cheeks and forehead. I lightly pat it onto my skin. Don’t try to blend it out because it will disappear into nothing and lose its “pore covering” effect.  It feels really smooth and glides on easily when you apply it to skin. It is lightly scented but doesn't irritate at all.
As to covering pores,The Porefessional does diminish the look of them a good amount!!
I have combination skin, with a tendency to be a bit dry so I don't have large pores, but the ones I do have are still there upon close inspection, and this primer not only minimize my pores but it also mattify all the shine ! :)
Best of all you don't even need to use much of it, the product is so effective that only the tiniest amount is needed. By hiding my pores without clogging them, this product gives me the perfect base to go on with applying the rest of my face.  I've noticed that this primer does make my foundation last a little longer and you can barely see my pores!!

Yay for POREfection!!! :)

Benefit, you never let me down :) Thank you !

Sleek '' ROSE GOLD ''

Posted by A small Cat at 16:20 17 comments





For some women, doing their makeup takes up the better part of their morning routine, while for others, it’s an afterthought that requires a simple glossing of the lips and a couple swipes of mascara.  If I could only use one makeup product before leaving the house every day, without a doubt it would be a blush !!!

Blushes are my weakness, I can never get enough of them !!

Sleek blush in Rose Gold is probably the most well known of Sleek blushes as it has been compared to the famous NARS Orgasm as a dupe by many bloggers. I own it for over a year now, and have to say is very unique and MUST have for sure!! :)

Rose Gold is a peachy-pink with a coral undertone that also has a very strong golden sheen running through it.
It is crazily pigmented, the powder feels creamy, satin smooth and finely milled, which means it is a dream to apply and blend as it goes effortlessly on the skin.

With this blush you don’t need a highlighter as its sheen gives the pop you get it from highlighter.
Rose Gold is very affordable and it comes in a great amount of product. It will last FOREVER !!!

I am personally in love with it ,and will definitely be buying more colours :)

Hello lovelies!!

 It's this time of the year when people start booking holidays and talking of summer escapes, and I thought it's right time to feature some swimwear :)
Since my mind is already on summertime and time spent at the beach, I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect swimsuit.
I know that trend conscious women want to show their unique style wherever they go and even more so when going on holiday, so I put together an assortment of swimwear, inspired by NEXT to bring some fabulous style while sunbathing and swimming at home, or abroad. :)

A little LUSH Haul with review

Posted by A small Cat at 22:10 13 comments



Hello there lovelies!

Today I'm going to be doing a haul/review on all the stuff I got at Lush  (YAY!)
Lush has always been the centre of attention when it comes to Bath and Body in the UK.
I love lush. We all love lush. Right?

So here is what I got:

 ...if she’s gotta think, Think Pink!


My favourite bath bomb - Think Pink. I never go in to Lush shopping and not buy it!
Cute candy flowers and the scent of tonka and vanilla with a hint of neroli. What can I say? It smells delicious !!The unique touch with Think Pink is the red heart confetti which is released from the bomb whilst it's fizzing around the bath tub.
I love to lie in the bath and let it wrap me in a big pink hug :)


...Let the sun set around you as you let go of the day and drift off to a world of dreams...

Twilight it's the perfect way to end a long day :)
With lavender and tonka oils at the heart, there are also notes of caramel and malt to enhance a sense of comfort and reassurance.
This bath ballistic is AMAZING! Not only does it smell divine, it makes your bath sparkle! It first burst into pinks with little flashes of orange and ends with blue and a touch of glitter. I felt like a great goddess, bathing in the stars :)




He loves me, he loves me not, he loves me…

Tisty Tosty is a ''love potion''  made with the scent of precious rose and orris root.  The flower of love, rose perfume is said to ease tension and give people happy, positive  feelings.
 It is beautiful and romantic. 
The ballistic doesn't colour the water like many of Lush's other bath bombs,but it has 7 mini rose buds that float in the water around. It feels quite luxurious :)



Berry yourself under a blanket of soft fruit foam...

Last but not least is my all time favourite  -The Comforter :)
Just as the name implies, this soap comforts you like a warm, familiar cotton blanket.
This bubble bar smells unbelievable - nice and sweet of parma violets  but once crumbled into hot running water it gives off a gorgeous  kind of a sugary blackcurrant aroma.The bar is huge and can be broken into pieces and reused for lots of baths. I love how it turn my bath water bright pink and create lots of lovely bubbles. I am in love with it !!



Have you tried anything from LUSH? What are your favorites?

Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils Yves Saint Laurent review & Pictures

Posted by A small Cat at 17:53 8 comments


Yves Saint Laurent Volume Effet Faux Cils Luxurious Mascara

Volume Effe Faux Cils YSL   £23.50 /  $30.00  7,5ml

Expressive eye make-up ' false eyelash ' in one stroke of a brush...
I like a distinct and visible eye make-up, and until today I was looking for the perfect mascara and I can tell you that my search I finally over :)

YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils Luxurious gives depth beautifully exposes the eyes.It has a creamy consistency so it sticks to every eyelash. It gives ''soft '' effect, i.e. lashes are not dried not hard but moist and slightly shiny.

This mascara also doesn't budge on me. Once it's dried that's it there all day, and it doesn't flake on me either.

I wouldn't say that this mascara thickens lashes to well, but what it does,it's  amazingly increases - draw eyelashes right up to the eyebrows. It is able to conjure up an impressive array of flirtatious;)


Smells amazing, kind of sweet,i guess, the first mascara with such a pleasant smell I have ever tried, for sure :):)

Very easy to wash off with two-phase make up remover, or just simple cleansing milk. It has a fairly large brush, but it didn't  cause me any problem during the application.


The mascara comes in the signature YSL mirrored gold packaging which, as with all YSL products, looks luxurious and chic.
Mascara gives a spectacular effect on the lower lashes - I LOVE it for that!!

There is a recommendation on the box from the manufacturer to once a week, wipe clean with a dry tissue. If this prolongs the life of the product, it is not a problem for me :)

So far, I'm delighted with effects :)

I recommend Effet Faux Cils to all fond of dramatic look :)





How to effectively conceal bags under eyes- beauty tip :)

Posted by A small Cat at 13:35 2 comments

Cover up bags under the eyes is a big skill. But no impossible!


Face with puffy eyes tend to age your appearance more than wrinkles or grey hair. Bags under the eyes can have a very different background, they may be a sign of exhaustion, bad night's sleep on a regular basis or even disease. To get rid of the annoying problem sometimes it's enough just to use the appropriate under the eyes cream, but it does not always work, and then what to do?

I know a simple way used by make-up artists, through which they manages to hide them.

Stylist contrary to generally clear principle  light colours to highlight and dark colours to hide - apply a light concealer to hide the bags under the eyes.

The sun light usually falls on our face from above, so the swelling under the eye creates a shadow. Lighting up a place - that is imposing light coloured concealer just below the '' bags'' were the shadow is, will bring it up ,thanks to what, the shadows visually retreat !!
I do not have bags under eyes so I can not demonstrate this method on myself, but I know for sure that it is very effective and '' magical' ' :)
I enclose for you this pic I found, and I will explain a little better how to do it :)


This is addition to your daily cosmetic routine. After skin is moisturized and cover with foundation, it  is best to use a brush with a pointed tip and apply concealer at least two shades lighter only in the place where bags created the shadow, and gently pat with fingertip in order to achieve a better finish.

This technique requires improvement, for sure, but once you manage to do it accurately it will not only helps you look younger, but also improve self - confidence :)
Because you know you look good once you feel better :)
Hope you find it useful :)

NARS Summer 2013 Pierre Hardy Collection

Posted by A small Cat at 10:53 8 comments

Shoes plus makeup. Is a better pairing even possible? 







Colour crazy beauty brand Nars has teamed up with super slick shoe and bag designer Pierre Hardy. The result? One of Spring/Summer's most exciting makeup collections ever!! :) 
This limed-edition is available for sale from May 1.
It features six nail polish pairs (inspired by Hardy’s Spring 2013 shoe collection) which come in little miniature shoe boxes with a dust bag, just like Hardy’s shoes, and two gorgeous blushes :)
If you love pretty pink, then Boys Don't Cry blush is definitely for you. This pink grapefruit shade is highly pigmented but blends beautifully into a soft coral-pink that is sweet and alluring.
But if orange is more your style, Rotonde blush is right up your alley. Don't be put off by this darker shade because the adorable tiger lily brightens up complexions immediately.
These special edition blushers are also twice the size of usual NARS palettes and have been overlaid with a gorgeous shimmer styled after Pierre Hardy's signature cubic design. How unique is that ? :)

I can't wait to get my hands on them :) Top of my list are the shimmering blushes. I love the subtle hints of gold :)

...Ok ,so where is my Credit Card?? ;) :)


What do you think of the NARS x Pierre Hardy collaboration?

"With makeup, you change the colour, you change the shadow, you change the darkness or the lightness of something – and suddenly a face is transformed."

Spring -Summer 2013 inspirations

Posted by A small Cat at 18:10 18 comments




New season, new set of outfits!

Hello my darlings!

 Finally we have got some sun here in UK ,so we can enjoy a bit of spring weather :)  Cherry blossoms are blooming everywhere, leaves are changing....so should our closets, right?
For sure we still have pieces from the past springs/summers which are still wearable this season with just a slight change of accessory. This is my plan, fingers crossed, to re-use and recycle some old stuff that I've used only once or twice.

Hopefully if my plan falls smoothly into place, I will just buy really very interesting key pieces which can transform my outfit into something new :)
Anyway, I've compiled a few spring/summer inspirations. Hope you will like them :)

Enjoy scrolling down!
