Topshop Beauty '5 Years of Beauty' Lips in 'Ohh La La'

This year Topshop Beauty is celebrating 5 years since they've launched a range of beauty products and they've come up with a limited edition of some of their best selling items with creamy white and rose gold packaging. As soon as I saw the packaging I thought it was really cute so I decided it was time to try a couple more items from the brand. They released five shades of lipsticks and I went with the summery coral shade 'Ohh La La'.

Maybelline Master Drama Chromatic Khol Liner in 'Turquoise Vibe'

I mainly stick to neutral colors when it comes to eye make-up, but every once in a while I like to introduce a bit of color. And when is it a better time than in summer to do that? I was looking between different options and colors and settled on the Maybelline Master Drama Chromatic eyeliner in 'Turquoise Vibe'.

Kat Von D Shade & Light Contour Palette

Despite the apparent withdrawal of contouring in favour of strobing, I'm still fascinated by it's concept of altering facial features with shading. It's nothing new in the make up world, but only in the past couple of years the majority of companies started coming out with palettes intended for contouring and highlighting. Among many brands and different formulas I decided to try the Shade + Light palette from Kat Von D.

Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray

Come summer, my biggest mission is keeping my make up in place and my skin matte in this heat (aka mission impossible). I was deciding between this Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray and the De-Slick Oil Control Spray version last summer, and the lady at Sephora was like, 'Well besides keeping your skin matte, you probably also want it to stay in it's place', so I settled for this one, convinced it was the best of both worlds.

Yes To Grapefruit Brightening Facial Wipes

I've steered away from using facial wipes for removing make up, but I still keep one or two packs in my stash, just in case, if I want to quickly remove and reapply make up, or I just want to remove everything when I get home, but don't feel like cleansing my skin properly yet. I've used several products from Yes to before so I was really looking forward to trying these Grapefruit Cleansing wipes, since they promise to cleanse, exfoliate and brighten with fruity acids at the same time.

Essie Sand Tropez Nail Polish

Essie Sand Tropez Nail Polish is an understated nude. It's a great shade to wear year round, but looks especially nice in the summer on slightly tanned skin. The shade is sandy beige with a cream finish and looks more warm beige-y or cool greyish, depending on the light (see below). The color is sophisticate and classy, perfect for everyday or for something that requires a more polished look.

NARS Satin Lip Pencil in 'Rikugien'

Over the past year NARS has slowly become one of my favourite brands. I haven't reviewed that many of their products yet, despite having quite a few in my stash, but trust me when I say that they know what they're doing when it comes to make up. One of the last items I got my hands on is the Satin Lip Pencil in the shade Rikugien, named after a park in Tokyo.

Sun Dance Mattifying Sun Fluid SPF 30 (Mattierendes Sonnenfluid)

Not too long ago I read Mateja's review for the Sun Dance Tinted Sun Fluid but when I went to look for it in the shop they were all sold out, so I decided to pick up the Mattifying one instead. Throughout the year I tend to use foundations with added SPF, but in the summer I feel like they don't protect the skin well enough, especially because I use chemical exfoliants several times a week. What sold me was the mattifying claim and SPF 30.

Benefit The POREfessional Face Primer

I've always been intrigued with the idea of primers promising to minimise the appearance of pores, smoothening the complexion and preventing excessive shine of the skin. Benefit's The POREfessional Face Primer is quite well known to be a favourite amongst many so I was excited to try it out.

Topshop 'Golden Aura' Smokey Eye Palette

Although I've only tried a couple of items from the Topshop Beauty range I feel like the whole line is still pretty underrated. The price point is affordable and the quality is better than some of the products you'd normally find at the drugstore. And since we're all familiar with my neutral-taupe-bronzy eyeshadow hunt (obsession) these were the hues I went for, when I decided to pick up one of their Eyeshadow Palettes - in Golden Aura.

L'Occitane Immortelle Oil Make-Up Remover

I've spoken about my love for cleansing oils before because they are very effective at removing make up and impurities and can also double as some 'alone time' pampering as you're massaging it into the skin in the evening. L'Occitane fairly recently came out with two similar oil based cleansers/make-up removers and this one is aimed towards more mature skin. Let's face it, I'm not getting younger, so when I used up my Shea Butter Cleansing Oil I decided to try out the Immortelle Oil Make-Up Remover.
