April favourites!

 Hey loves!

Another "monthly favourites" post for you today-
the products mentioned below were also the main features of my holiday makeup bag, as well:


TBS Moisture foundation: this may not be the best-ever foundation I've tried so far, but it's heaps better from the previous used Oil-free version; review coming soon ;)

TBS Shimmer Cubes: when it comes to my travel makeup bag, I always include a neat&cute eyeshadow palette; apart from the top left honey gold colour, I made good use of the rest of the shades during Easter.

Seventeen nail polish in 219: as I haven't yet experimented with the season't hot pastel nail colours, this coral shade served me great to transition my manicure from dark wintery reds and browns to spring's brights.

Mac Hue lipstick: what I like the most about this lipstick is its buildable coverage- during daytime, I can wear it as a soft wash or I can layer it on evenings for a glossy nude mouth! An essential product when I'm travelling.

Korres Jasmine lip butter: I so love the soft nude effect it gives on the lips, but I still can't get over the plastic pot container! If you ever see a girl on the streets using a hand sanitiser before applying this lip balm, that's probably me...


I was also going to include this old plum blush from Biotherm- but no, the clumsy little me had to drop it on the floor and ruin it completely...
Took me two days to get over it!

What were your most used products during April?

  2. Πολύ όμρφα όλα!! Καλέ, το ρουζάκι φτιάχνεται! Με το γνωστό κόλπο με οινόπνευμα.

  3. @EllysMakeupbag, I know!!! Isn't that frustrating? I don't know why Korres has decided to sell to the Sephoras abroad exclusive products that we can't get in Greece- like the face primer, mineral foundation, liquid lipsticks/stains...

    @Natalie, το είχα ξεχάσει ότι φτιάχνεται, έχεις δίκιο! Αν και τώρα που το σκέφτομαι, μάζεψα τα κομμάτια από το πάτωμα- οπότε ίσως δεν είναι καλή ιδέα να μπω στον κόπο να το φτιάξω, με την ακμή που με γυροφέρνει...

  4. Αφού θα το πνίξεις στο οινόπνευμα θα απολυμανθεί πιστεύω! χιχι!
    http://www.chinaglaze.gr είναι η ελληνική σελίδα, εγώ τα πήρα από μια έκθεση, από το περίπτερο της εταιρίας. Πολλά φιλιά!!

  11. Το lip butter κι εγω πλεον το χρησιμοποιώ μονο στο σπιτι, δεν το παίρνω μαζι μου εξω! Τρελαινομαι για τη μυρωδιά του-αν και καμια σχεση με γιασεμί :)
    Tα shimmer cubes του body shop τα λιγουρεύομαι εδω και πολύ καιρό! Ειδικά το συγκεκριμενο σιγουρα θα μου αρεσει γιατι προτιμώ τις neutral-καφέ-taupe σκιες!
    Οντως πολύυυ εκνευριστικό οταν σπάει μια σκιά ή ενα ρουζ! Εν τω μεταξυ και που τα φτιαχνω με το οινόπνευμα, μετα απο λίγο μου ξανασπάνε γιατι τα πετάω χύμα μεσα στην τσαντα - τσαπατσουλα me!
    Φιλιά!

  12. @Natalie, ωωω τέλεια! Να βρω, κι εγώ, μια άκρη με τα China Glaze ;)

    @Demi, hi girl! You can search Youtube for videos on "how to repair a broken eyeshadow", easy- peasy! I did a post on that matter a while ago:

    @fashion written with a lipstick, yeah that's what I love about these eyeshadows! Although I wish TBS brought out some more colour options in their permanent makeup range :(

    @Eloise, ha ha it's making sense to me! I'd be all over Sleek makeup if it was available in our stores, too!

  13. @Beauty shades, yeah it's such a turn-off...

    @Sophie Isobel, oh I'm glad you like them too! The shimmer cubes are one of my favourite items from TBS ;)

    @Aγγελική, γεια σου! Ναι, τα Body Shop έχουν μερικά ωραία και μοναδικά πραγματάκια- ενώ κάποια άλλα ανήκουν δυστυχώς καταλήγουν στον κάλαθο των αχρήστων... Φιλιά!

    @dimitra, α ναι, καμία σχέση με μυρωδιά γιασεμί το lip butter! Τα Shimmer cubes είναι από τα αγαπημένα μου του Body Shop, ειδικά η taupe απόχρωση στον κύβο κάτω δεξιά! Και εξαιρετικό value-for-money: μπορεί να κάνουν 20 ευρώ (16 με την έκπτωση, χε χε) αλλά σου δίνουν 16 γρ. σκιάς!

  14. my condolences to you and your plum blush! seriously I think purples and plums are pretty overlooked by much of the beauty world, purples and plums make the greatest blush colors <3

  15. Ha ha, thanks doll!
    I feel exactly the same- now that barbie pinks and coral blushes are so hot, we tend to forget the old plum favourites :(

  16. Oraia pramatakia! :) Ti krima to rouzaki k fainetai toso omorfo :(

  17. Ναι μωρέ, στεναχωρήθηκα που έσπασε! Πήγε κατευθείαν στον κάλαθο...
