September 2011 favourites

Time for a monthly favourites post!

In all honesty, I didn't wear that much makeup in September, as this transitional period is far from makeup-friendly: golden shimmer and bronzers look so "off", and then the weather is not that wintery yet to wear intense smokey eyes or red lipsticks with ease!
Hence these safe colours...

Elf Natural Radiance blusher in Shy: this product caused me a makeup enlightenment- baby pink blush+olive skin= perfect combo!
Nothing more to add, you can see my review here

Elf Mineral lipstick in Runway Pink: this was my most reached lipstick during September, always accompanied with Shy blusher! Cause you know when sometimes you wear a pink cheek with a pink lip but somehow their undertones don't match? Well, these two products were meant to be worn together!

TBS Shimmer Cubes #20: my new favourite eyeshadow palette! The Body Shop has introduced 4 new shimmer cubes to their permanent makeup line, weeeee!!! I've been using all 4 shades to create a soft smokey eye and I even got compliments from a male friend who's against the philosophy of makeup :P

H&M nail colour: I'm so cheap when it comes to nail polishes; and since I really don't care and go out in public with chipped nails, I don't see any reason to invest in a big bottle of Chanel nail colour- knowing that I would never use it up... This one by H&M is just perfect- 7 ml of burgundy red for that autumn feel, only for 0.95 euros :)

TBS elderflower gel: it's a cooling gel that only offers basic moisture to the under eye area; however it gets absorbed in no time leaving no traces behind to interfere with concealer! Yeah, I've been there- courtesy of a Korres eye cream :(

On another note:

During past month I fancied some light read to get my mind off the stressful everyday things, so I bought an Agatha Christie novel. What a terribly cunning woman she must have been! Her writing style is always to-the-point, with no elaborate (but superfluous) depictions of landscapes or buildings.
FIY, the plot in all Agatha Christie novels is standard and goes like this: a dead body is found by an unfamiliar person, in a completely irrelevant place with zero or very few witnesses... And when you've read half of the book and you've formed a faint idea of who's the murderer, there's another killing to mess things up. So predictable but still, it manages to get you hooked till the end...

Oh! and another thing: whenever did my little blog gained 200 followers?

I can't express how grateful I am for you, my lovely readers, in that you spare a little of your time to read my everyday ramblings-
so as a "thank you", I'm planning to do a couple of small giveaways!
:* :* :*

What were your most used products during September?



  1. I really love your monthly favorites!

    Συγχαρητήρια για τους 200+ Followers!!! Και οι σκιές φαίνονται πολύ ενδιαφέρουσες! Από διάρκεια πως πάνε;

  4. Μέχρι στιγμής τις έχω δοκιμάσει με στεγνό πινέλο και είχαν νορμάλ διάρκεια- δηλ. μετά από 3-4 ώρες ξεθωριάζουν λιγάκι. Αλλά να σου πω την αλήθεια δε με απασχολεί και πολύ, μου αρέσει το worn out look! xx

  5. lovely favourites love! i guess you're right about weather being a pain in the a**, i really have no idea of what the best kind of make up for this weather is, so i to choose to go minimal, and neutral :) xxx

    Όσο για παπούτσια, τα keds είναι ότι πρέπει, μόνο να μη βρέχει :P


  10. Love those posts doll!!And I have to get some more products from Elf!!And congrats on your followers!!You deserve it hun!!


  11. @fashion written with a lipstick, ah I feel exactly the same! Now it's sunny, now it's clouded, now it's pouring some drops- how can you decide what makeup to wear with that undecicive weather? lol xx

    @Λεναλδούπολη, αχ κοριτσάκι μου βάζεις δύσκολα! Για να σκεφτώ... Έχω διαβάσει καλά σχόλια για τα καινούρια Sheen Supreme της Mac και θέλω να τα δοκιμάσω. Και τα Chubby Sticks της Clinique. Όταν θέλω πάντως ενυδάτωση και λίγο χρώμα, χρησιμοποιώ tinted lip balms! Τόσο απλά! xx

    @Danielitsa, αλήθεια, θα κάνεις καμία παραγγελία στην Elf? Γράψε αν μπορείς κι ένα post, θα'θελα πολύ να τα δω! xx

  12. @dimitra, α να δοκιμάσεις τα Elf οπωσδήποτε! Κάνε subscribe στο newsletter τους και θα σου στέλνουν εκπτωτικούς κωδικούς- εγώ έκανα την 3η μου παραγγελία το περασμένο ΣΚ με 20% έκπτωση! Σ'ευχαριστώ για τα καλά σου λόγια sweetie! xx

    @Anastasia, κι εμένα μου αρέσει το wild rose lip butter του Κορρέ, αλλά στο στικ! Και θέλω να πάρω κι εγώ ένα ζευγάρι Keds, βαρέθηκα τα All Star βρε αδερφέ! xx

    @Blushingloves, aww thank you hun! Yeah some of the Elf products are totally worth it for the price!

  13. Congratulations!
    In september I rediscovered...satin taupe.Boring, but my eye makeup was superfast for work.Also dermablend by vichy and the golden bronzer from h&m.I'm still an elf virgin, but I'm tempted.filia

  14. Oh! You've tried the dermablend foundation? I've seen Lisa Eldridge using it in a couple of vids and that OBV shows how awesome this product must be! You should def give a chance at the Elf products, you'll have less chances of reveiving a faulty product with a little research beforehand. That's what I always do ;) xx

  15. Congrats hunni on hitting the 200 mark!!! Here's to many more 200's!!! ;)

    Btw. Love. Those. Shimmer. Cubes. Love. Love. Love.

    Πρεπει να παω μια βολτα απο TBS OΠΩΣ Κ ΔΗΠΟΤΕ!!!!!


  16. Thank you hun! Hugs xx

    Ναι ναι, επιτέλους καιρός ήταν να βγάλουν τα Body Shop κι άλλα shimmer cubes! Έχει και μια άλλη παλέτα με κάτι πράσινες-τιρκουάζ σκιές, πανέμορφη! Άσε που κράτησαν την τιμή στα 20 Ε- προ κρίσης θα την είχαν ανεβάσει στα σίγουρα...

  17. Μόλις ανακάλυψα το blog σου και είναι πραγματικά πολύ ωραίο, όσες αναρτήσεις σου διάβασα μέχρι στιγμής είναι καλογραμένες και χρήσιμες. Συγχαρητήρια! :)
    Θα χαρώ πολύ αν ρίξεις και εσύ μια ματιά στο δικό μου.
