Lookfantastic Beauty Box November: "Ready, set, glam"

Apparently life is just a sequence of beauty boxes. And it's time for november edition. I know I'm super late, but I was looking forward to this box and I love using some of the products from November's Box so I thought I'd share my impressions with you.

Currently loving

It's been a while since I posted a blogpost about the products I'm using and loving on a daily basis.
I've already talked about the YSL Touche Eclat Le Teint Foundation a few week ago and it's still my go-to foundation, no matter the occasion. It offer light to medium coverage, blends with ease and makes my skin look flawless.
This foundations works especially well with Zoeva's 102 Silk Finish face brush. I bought it In October and it has become my favourite brush to apply foundation with. I would say it's a bit small in size for a foundation brush, so it takes a bit longer to cover up the whole face and blend everything well, but I'm not bothered by that. I knew exactly what I was getting (I was deciding between 102 Silk finish and 104 Buffer).

Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat Foundation & other new products I'm loving

Surprise, surprise: I went online shopping a month ago. In search of a high-end foundation I did a small research on which brand, which shade, which foundation to select and of course where to buy it. If it's one thing I'm good at it's definitely figuring out where to get a product for lowest price possible. I can proudly anounce I have a PhD about this topic (for my fellow slovenian readers: mogoče sem pa samo gorenjka). 

After loads of sleepless nights and nightmares about which foundation to choose I decided for YSL Touche Éclat Le Teint foundation and I'm not even gonna lie, 50% of my decision was based on the packaging. The other 50% were: light to medium coverage, longwearing, easy to apply, matching shade. Easy peasy! 

I bought the YSL Touche Éclat foundation on Notino.at an austrian online shop (which is also available in Slovenia under the name Salma.si by Notino and many other countries for that matter). I got some other products there as well. One of them was a repurchase and other two were something I really wanted to try out.

Lookfantastic Beauty Box: the Indulge Me Edition

This month has come to an end and I'm finally having time to write a post about October's Lookfantastic Beauty Box.This month's edition includes loads of brand that are entirely new to me - which is great.

NYX Liquid Suede Metallic Matte Swatches + Review (Full range)

"Matte is dead, long live metallic matte!" 

As you probably noticed the "matte trend" is subject of a strange transformation. We're not seing that much of completely matte-matte lips anymore, but a palette of matte variations (semi-matte, metallic matte etc.). In my opinion metallic mattes aren't as wearable as the simple mattes on everydasy basis, but they're a perfect addition to your lipstick or liquid lipstick collection if you'd like to spice things up an be "oh so trendy".

By the way all following photos are exactly as they came out of my camera, no contrast was altered. What you see is what you get. Some of the shades are brighter and slightly intenser in "real-life". 

3 tips for beautiful skin with Lookfantastic x thisworks Beauty Box

I've always had good skin. Every now and then life blessed me with a pimple or two and those were the most devastating times of my life (I'm not even exaggerating). I took beautiful and healthy looking skin for granted. Ever since I got off contraceptive pill my skin hasn't been the same. I've had good and bad days. And some really bad days this month when stress, cool weather and everything else came together.

I wanted to share with you 3 tips for beautiful and healthy looking skin which are helping me restore my skin to its original state (i.e. flawless complexion :D). 

Lookfantastic Beauty Box - The Birthday Edition

  Discovering beauty boxes...

I've always prefered travel-sized makeup and skincare products, because I like trying out new things and almost never stick to a single product for a longer period of time. I still remember how excited I was when I discovered beauty boxes. My first ever Beauty Box was Douglas Box of Beauty and I still enjoy the box and its content.
Beauty Boxes to me are especially appealing because they offer luxury sizes of more expensive and high end products sometimes. I can test these out before I actually commit to buying fullsize. On the long run I save loads of money that way, because some products just don't preform as well as they claim, so trying things thoroughly out before buying them is great. I won't generalize and say all beauty boxes are great and offer a good quality-price ratio, but the ones I buy, definitely are (I'm referring to the only ones I like currently - Douglas Box of Beauty and Lookfantastic Beauty Box).
