Beauty ‘n Fashion: My current favourite beauty items (part II)

So far for my current beauty favourites… but this is a never stopping movement! I keep on buying different beauty products so one day these favourites might be replaced by something else… who knows?!

Please let me know your beauty favourites… perhaps I might be persuaded to buy one of them 😉

Love, Kathleen

    1. It really is a top product for such a price!!! I always add a drop of oil. My skin is a bit older (!) and I have found that using the foundation as it is, is a bit too dry for my skin… but nothing a drop of facial oil won’t fix 🙂 Thanks for reading and enjoy your evening! Love, Kathleen

    1. I’m glad I found a couple of budget-friendly fragrances to use during the week 🙂 Concerning make-up I have bought an Urban Decay palette and love it! Will buy UD stuff again, I’m sure. And my skincare normally is L’Oréal, but now I am using Rainpharma, a Belgian eco-friendly product. There was a promotion with a magazine so I bought two magazines and got two boxes for Rainpharma products. Testing them out as we speak… you’ll probably hear from them in a couple of weeks/months time on my blog. Love, Kathleen
