Hi Gorgeous! 
I recently received this new product which I am very excited to share with you – the Shadow Switch. Shadow Switch is a Dry Brush Cleanser. It is an amazing makeup innovation and takes applying eyeshadow to a whole new level. I don’t know how you manage to change eyeshadow colours when applying makeup, but I usually just use the back of my hand to cleanse the brush, which leaves me with a half clean brush and eyeshadow hand – so thats not very effective. 

How does it work?
Eyeshadow Switch has a black sponge which extracts all traces of make-up powder from the brush, allowing you to switch between different colours and shades. It also eliminates the possibility of product transfer between your powders using the same brush. 

How to use it?
Press and rotate your brush over the Shadow Switch in a circular motion until all traces of colour powder have gone. Test at the back of your hand too see whether all colour has been removed. 

Impressions
I really liked this product! It comes in a convenient metal tin which fits into your makeup bag and can be taken with you wherever you go. The Shadow Switch removed all traces of colour from the brush, making the makeup process much more efficient and quicker. It is also the fastest and most hygienic way of cleaning your brushes. Available on Amazon (here) for only £5.99.

Ania’s advice:
1. Get the Shadow Switch 
2. Experiment with colours
3. Stay glamorous!

Hello Autumn!
Once again I  have a set of empties for you, I know that some of them are repeating from the previous empties but when I was moving I got mixed up so the ones I previously reviewed will not be mentioned here! Have a look at Empties #6! Enjoy! 

Tom Ford Black Orchid 
This perfume can be described in 5 words: warm, spicy, dark, seductive, sweet. It is based on Sandalwood, Amber, Chocolate Vanilla; has spicy fruity notes as well as Orchid as heart notes, and  is topped with Jasmine, Gardenia and Tuber. This perfume is ideal for a person who likes heavy, spicy scents, it is very distinctive so you will either love it or hate it. I love it and use it day and night, however a lot of people prefer to use it in the evenings. Available from Selfridges, £54/30ml. 
Korres Jasmine Body Butter 
This is a very hydrating body butter from Korres. I bought it in duty free on my way back from Prasonisi where I went kitesurfing. As you can probably imagine after 1 week in the sun, wind and on the beach, my skin was extremely dry. This body butter is very hydrating and after just a few applications my skin was nourished and quickly recovered. The secret is in the ingredients, filled with Shea butter, avocado, almond and sunflower, the body butter has softening and reconstructing properties + it smells gorgeous! Available from Feelunique, £12.50.
Roques Oneil Therapie Aura Spray 
If you are looking for a face mist or setting spray, you could try the Restore Aura Spray from Roques Oneil. I go through face mists quite quickly and actually this is the second bottle I used up. You can carry it with you in your handbag, have it in your beauty cabinet or use it when travelling. It is a perfect product to take on the plane and it is exactly 100 ml. The product smells of different herbs  and flowers such as Rose, Spearmint, Rosemary, White Sage and Lemon. Available from Roques Oneil, £28.
Bioderma Micellar Water 
Great for removing makeup, dirty and as part of an evening routine. Every girl should have micellar water in her beauty closet. Enough said. Available from Feelunique, £10.50. 

Toni and Guy Dry Shampoo 
This is my favourite dry shampoo, so you probably saw it in my previous empties. Dry shampoo is perfect for those days when you don’t have the time to wash your hair or simply don’t feel like it. I like the one from Toni and Guy as it doesn’t make the hair feel stiff after using like other products. It is long lasting, and gives you another day of clean hair. A must-have! Available from Boots, £7.49.

The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Miracle Solid Oil For Body and Hair
A solid Argan oil is all you need if you often suffer from dry skin. It is a solid oil which comes in a 50g metal tin. The oil needs to be warmed up in hands prior to applying. It is very hydrating and can be used on dry knees, elbows or any dry patches. You can also use it as hydrating treatment prior to washing your hair. Great for the autumn and winter months! Available from The Body Shop, £8.

Lancome Hypnose 
This is the most expensive mascara I owned, I usually just buy drugstore mascaras as they are very effective and much cheaper. The mascara from Lancome is worth the price however as it made my lashes extremely long and thick. With the high end makeup also comes the beautiful packaging  as you can see above. If you are looking for a more luxurious mascara, I would recommend trying this one! (Available from Boots, £23.50)
Collection Long Lasting Concealer Shade Fair
As always the Collection Concealer is present in my empties. If there is one products that I use like its water, then its definitely this concealer. I never leave my house without touching-up my imperfections and this concealer does it so well. It provides great coverage, and can be used for lighter or heavier makeup. The price makes this products 10/10! Available in Boots, £4.19. 
Ania’s advice:
1. Try a new perfume! 
2. Find your perfect halloween costumer
3. Light up the candles

It is September Favourites time once again! I had a lot of haircare favourites this month as Autumn is usually the month during which I experiment with my hair. This is because I need to change my summer wardrobe to the autumn/winter one which includes knitwear, scarves and coats so straight down summer hair is often not an option as it can end up looking very messy and knotted. 

Schwarzkopf got2b Oil-licious Tame and Shine Styling Oil
This is probably my favourite product from the September Favourites. I use hair oil everyday to tame the frizz, but a lot of people find that very surprising as they think it will weigh the hair down and make it look greasy. That is certainly not true, as long as you apply it the right way which is from mid-length down, applying it by only touching your hair lightly. My hair is very long so I use 2 pumps of the product but 1 pump is suitable for shorter hair. 
The oil can be used as daily treatment to nourish the hair, on damp hair before styling/blow drying or as a mask pre-washing. It is a multi-purpose product and is very handy at all times. Also the oil smells divine and the sweet smell of Argan stays on the hair, which is another benefit. This has become my daily essential, replacing my other hair oils. Available in Boots, £4.19.

Schwarzkopf got2b Playful Styling Primer 
This is the first time I tried a styling primer for the hair. It helps to manage the hair, making it soft and  easier to style. This primer can be used both on dry and wet hair to create a variety of styles. I liked using it when creating pony tails and buns and when curling my hair. It makes styling process a lot easier, helping to control the hair whilst styling and makes the hairstyles last longer. Available in Boots, £4.19
Schwarzkopf got2b Powder’ful Volumising Styling Powder 
It if you are looking for an immediate volume you will love this product. First of all it is very convenient as you can carry it with your wherever you go. The product itself is a white powder which you shake on your palms and rub them together and then distribute on the hair focusing on the roots. It will instantly boost the hair volume, and lift the hair so it looks great on all hair lengths and since mine is long and heavy this product was very effective for pony tails, buns and tied-up hair. Available in Boots, £4.19
Vatika DermoViva Honey Face Wash 
This is a new product from Vatika, it has the ideal combination of ingredients for glowing skin – almonds, aloe vera, and honey. It is Paraben and SLS free and consists of natural ingredients. The face wash has more of a gel consistency which is very convenient to apply. 
The product has a delicate honey smell, and it leaves the skin hydrated and glowing. I preferred using it under the shower as a first step of my cleansing routine. I massaged it into the face and neck and then washed it off after use, following with a micellar water. It left my skin cleansed and hydrated. Available on Amazon, £3.99.
Bourjois Volume Clubbing Mascara 
This mascara is a life changing product. Firstly it actually fulfils all of it’s promises, it adds volume to your lashes. Secondly, it doesn’t crumble so you will not have the dark dots under your eyes, and thirdly it is long lasting. It is perfect for everyday use, as well as clubbing if you add multiple layers. Check my latest Instagram pictures to see how it looks on the eyes! Available from Boots, £7.99.
Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion (Original)
As you know I am a fan of Urban Decay Eyeshadows, but I like when they last the whole day and evening so I decided to try out their eyeshadow primer. If you often use eyeshadows, this is a product you definitely should try. You apply it on your eyelids, prior to applying the shadow. It maintains your eyeshadow in perfect condition throughout the day so you will not need to reapply. Great product! Available from Urban Decay, £16. 
Ania’s advice:
1. Focus on haircare
2. Take out your cosy cardigans
3. Get Pumpkin Spice Latte

 Hello Beauty!

The August Libbie Club box is probably one of my favorites so far, containing Placenta Ampoule Cream from the Korean Brand Mizon, a selfie lover must-have Nanoblur High Definition Skin and a stunning nude lipstick from a new brand called Nizz Cosmetics.

K-Beauty Mizon Placenta Ampule Cream

I absolutely love Korean skincare so this was another exciting product for me. Mizon was founded by a selection of Cosmetic Chemists from a leading Asian Cosmetic Manufacturer Amorepacyfic.

The main ingredient is plant placenta which is known for its nourishing properties and promoting skin cell regeneration. The concentration of placenta is 1500mg which is very high compared to other brands. Moreover the cream contains my favourite ingredient which is hyaluronic acid, which aims to retain moisture in the skin cells. The hyaluronic acid helps to hydrate the skin which helps to slow down the ageing process. Filled with plant based ingredients like sagebrush, rose extract and yarrow, the cream promises to sooth sensitive skin.

The cream sinks in quickly, leaving your skin smooth without leaving a greasy film so you can apply it before make-up. It has a delicate smell of calming lavender which I absolutely love.

20% off Mizon Placenta Ampoule Cream, Save £5.20

Indeed Labs Nanoblur 
This super innovative product will give your skin an airbrushed effect. It changes the way light reflects off the skin and once applied the micro-prisms reflect light in a multitude of directions having similar effect as airbrushed photo.
It can be used under makeup or patted on top of the foundation. It can be mixed with moisturiser for a more hydrating effect 
It is a very cool product and smooths down the skin, reducing any imperfections. It gives the skin a matt finish and makes it picture perfect! A selfie addict must have! 

 

Nizz Cosmetics Cashmere Nude Lipstick  
Living in the windy London, early on I realised that lipgloss is not the best choice here and so I quickly switched to lipsticks. As you all know I am a fan of organic cosmetics so when this arrived in the Libbie box I was eager to try it. Nizz Cosmetics are made from natural ingredients and are vegetarian, paraben-free, and hypo-allergenic. All the ingredients come from fair trade,

The lipstick is creamy and long lasting, so you don’t need to reapply frequently. It contains the nourishing Shea Butter, protective Peach Kernel Oil and Sweet Almond Oil rich in vitamins A, B1, B2, B6 and E.

The colour is stunning, and can be worn during the day and evening as well. I really like the gorgeous packaging and the fact that it has an additional end where you can use your finger/brush to apply less product. 

Ania’s advice:
1. Try Korean Skincare
2. Wear only lipstick, and no other makeup
3. Take a lot of selfies

Hi Stunning!
It is monthly favourites time! With July being very warm and sunny I wanted to let my skin breathe a bit which is why I focused on skincare. There is nothing more stunning than beautiful, healthy and glowing complexion, which is exactly what I was aiming for this month. I think it worked :), check my Instagram (Aniaaa Pawlak) for proof.

Elemental Herbology Cell Food 
This is a product that I would recommend to anyone who wants a hydrated and nourished skin. It contains 14 active ingredients, and 6 antioxidants which help to boost radiance and vitality. It is filled with vitamins, proteins and antioxidants which hydrate and revive your skin. The ingredients are 100% natural which is another plus, especially since I am trying to use more and more natural products.

I recommend using it once a day in the evening before your moisturiser, and twice a day if your skin needs a moisture boost. The serum is hydrating, and locks in the moisture, reducing the visibility of pores and results in glowing skin. Available from my Libbie Club, £45 for Cell Food Radiance and Vitality Serum + FREE Vital Cleanse and FREE Vital Glow.

Exuviance Age Less Everyday 
Dry skin has always been my problem so I need to apply a moisturiser twice a day. The Exuviance Age Less Everyday is a daily cream which has PHA + Biotonic complex which stimulates the cell turnover, preserving skin’s natural collagen. The cream is targeted at dry and sensitive skin and not only nourishes but also slows down the ageing process. 
The cream is filled with Lilac and Grape Seed Extracts, and Vitamin E to provide the skin with the most essential ingredients. I used this as a day cream for two weeks and I was very satisfied with the results. Although I am 22, so I do not have any visible signs of ageing, my skin was hydrated and glowing, and the cream was perfect as a makeup base. Available from Only Nature, £33.50.
 Exuviance Hydrating Eye Complex 
Finding a good eye cream is very challenging so when I find one I usually stick to it. Lately, I have been using the Hydrating Eye Complex from Exuviance. The cream is ideal for all skin types, and has soothing, hydrating and anti-ageing properties. It contains Polyhdroxy Acids – Gluconalactone and Lactobionic acid as well as Vitamins A, C and E which have nourishing benefits.
I used this cream during my evening routine and I noticed that the skin around my eyes was brighter and healthier. Also my dark circles have faded noticeably. I recommend patting it softly when applying to stimulate circulation, slowing down the ageing process. It comes in a convenient tube which helps to dispense the cream and is very hygienic. Available from Only Nature £27.50.

Organique Ghassoul Clay Powder Mask 
This is a mask from a brand from Poland but it is also available in the UK which is great news! The Ghassoul is a form of mud which has grease-removing and cleansing properties. It comes in a powder so you need to mix it with water before applying on face and neck. I recommend keeping it for 8-10 minutes before washing it off with water. The results are amazing, my skin was smooth, pores were tightened and my skin looked flawless. Available from Organique£12.50/200ml. 

James Read Gradual Tan Mist 
Since I got this in the May Libbie Box I am obsessed. I usually use it once/twice a week to maintain a healthy tan on my face. It makes self-tan so much easier and it is very convenient. All you need to do is cleanse your skin, spray evenly on face and neck, and wait for 2 minutes to settle, then apply makeup. 

It is infused with DHA, the active bronzing ingredient in self tanners. Against many expectations, it contains great ingredients like acne-fighting zinc, coconut oil, and hydrating rose water, leaving your skin hydrated, tanned and glowing. 
Cle de Peau Beaute Essential Correcting Refiner
Last, but definitely not least is the Beauty Essential Correcting Refiner from Cle de Peau. This product is quite expensive compared to other alternatives. It contains Surface Refining Complex, oil-absorbing powder, illuminating Complex, chamomile extract and super hyaluronic acid.

It noticeably removes appearance of pores, evening out the skin tone. The hyaluronic acid has anti-ageing properties as well and replenishes the skin’s moisture. I liked how the toner felt on my skin, closing the pores, preparing it for the moisturizer. It also reduces the appearance of T zone. Love love love. Available from Cle de Peau Beaute£76/170ml.

Ania’s advice:
1. Focus on Skincare 
2. Reduce your make-up
3. Stay hydrated

The July Libbie Club Box is all about preparing your body for the bikini season and keeping your skin smooth and hydrated during your vacation. During my holiday I reduce the amount of beauty products I use, simply because I want to spend my time doing other things. The products I always use are exfoliator, body lotion, sunscreen, face cream and minimal makeup during evenings. This month’s box is literally what I will be taking with me for my holidays in Greece! All of these products are available on my Libbie Club Page here!



Bean Body Coconut Coffee Scrub 

I am always talking about coffee scrubs as they have so many beauty benefits. The Bean Body Coconut Coffee Scrub is made with organic Robusta Coffee Beans, Organic Cold Pressed Coconut Oil, Himalayan Pink Rock Salt, Demerara Sugar, Organic Cacao and Vitamin E oil. The coffee beans, the pink salt, sugar and Cacao are great exfoliants which effectively remove dead skin cells. The scrub is quite tough, which is exactly what you need to get rid of the unwanted skin layer. The cold pressed coconut oil combined with Vitamin E are ideal for nourishing the skin after exfoliation, leaving it silky smooth. 
The smell of coffee, cacao and fresh coconut is divine, and perfect for difficult mornings, relaxing weekends or after long days at the beach. The scrub not only exfoliates dead skin cells, but helps to remove cellulite, stretch marks, eczema, psoriasis and varicose veins. I also use it on my face to get rid of any blackheads or breakouts. A holiday must-have product! Available here, £14.95! 


Cowshed Wild Cow Invigorating Body Lotion 

Cowshed is one of the coolest English brands which use natural ingredients. The lotion is filled with the hydrating Shea and Cocoa Butters which moisturise the skin. The Lemongrass, Ginger and Rosemary essential oils are awakening and refreshing. 
The body lotion is quite light, and absorbs into the skin fairly quickly, so it is perfect when you are in a rush and need to apply a lotion and go. Lovely for layering scents on top. Available here. £20.


New Cid Cosmetics i-smoulder Smokey Eye Pencil and Shadow

The eyeshadow pencil from New Cid Cosmetics is ideal for traveling as it is compact, doesn’t require a separate brush and includes an eyeliner as well. It is a great product for creating a smokey eye effect. The colour I received is silver, which looks stunning, especially when used in the evenings. It is very easy to use and stays on the eye for at least 2 hours. Great makeup gadget, available in Silver, Gold and Amber. Available with 10% off here, £16.65.

Ania’s advice:
1. Exfoliate at least once a week 
2. Use body lotion 2 times a day
3. Try using max 3 makeup products

Hello beauty 
I apologize for the lack of activity. If you follow me on Instagram, you will know I took a trip to Milan, a stunning city! This time I wanted to share with you my favourite products from June as I didn’t have time to do that before I left 🙂

NUXE Huile Prodigieuse Or 
This product is perfect for the endless summer days. The oil is not only hydrating but it is also shimmering so whenever you are exposed to sun or light your skin will be glowing. I love to apply it to my collar bones and arms especially when I am wearing a summer dress. The oil can also be used on the hair, but I prefer to use it on my body. It has a lovely, delicate smell which can be combined with perfume or worn alone. A summer must- have! Available from Lookfantastic, £19.

Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist 
Face mists come in handy especially during warm summer days. I recently got this Rosewater Balancing Mist from Jurlique and I have been using it throughout June in the mornings, evenings and often during the day to refresh, hydrate and restore my skin. The mist smells DIVINE, and if you are a fan of rose water this mist will definitely please your senses. The mist is filled with antioxidant properties, which have many skincare benefits. If you are looking for a product for your bedside table, this is perfect. Available from Lookfantastic, £24.


The Body Shop Wild Argan Miracle Solid Oil For Body and Hair 
This is a very cool product which I recently discovered. It is a solid argan oil, which has great benefits for skin and hair. In order to apply it, you need to warm it up in your hands so that it becomes more liquid. It smells beautifully and really hydrates the dry skin areas. I would recommend using it on elbows and knees or any dry skin patches. Available from The Body Shop, £8.

Vatika Black Seed Complete Care Shampoo
This shampoo has been recommended to me for everyday hair care. It is quite hydrating but does not weigh your hair down so can be used daily if necessary. Black seed is well known for its beneficial haircare properties such as promoting hair growth, preventing hair loss, thickening the hair and improving overall hair health. This shampoo worked well for me, and after using it I noticed that my hair became smoother and looked better. Available from Tesco, £2.99.

Invisibobble
I am sure you already heard about this hair accessory. These are hair ties that don’t pull your hair and keep them in place. Since my hair is thick and long, during summer I usually wear it up. I really like the pink invisibobble but they are also available in other colours. Available from Justbeauty, £3.44. 

NYX Illuminator Magnetique 
This is an amazing Illuminator! When applied on skin it looks like light bronzer/blush with gold sparkles. It is ideal for light summer makeup, and I use it everyday to add a bit of colour to my cheeks. It stays on the skin for the whole day and the product lasts for at least 2-3 months. Add some glow to your skin with NYX illuminator!  
Ania’s advice:
1. If you are blonde don’t use products for brown hair
2. Even if your friend says it is ok 
3. Do NOT do it! (experienced it)

Hello Beautiful,
This month’s Libbie Club is filled with goodies to keep your skin radiant during the summer. In the summer I usually try to keep my makeup to minimal using 2-3 products to let my skin breathe. The key to a beautiful skin is using good quality products, exfoliating once a week, hydration and using minimal makeup. The products from this month’s products are perfect for the upcoming (hopefully) hot days! Check the special offers for my readers on my Libbie Club Page



Ginvera Marvel White Marvel Gel 
This is the most popular blackhead treatment in Asia. As you know Asians are well-known for their skincare regime and beautiful skin. It is a very interesting product as it its a clear gel, which when massaged into the skin, exfoliates dead skin cells. It has no abrasive grains yet still has the effect of exfoliator, without irritating the skin. It can be used on both sensitive, and blemish prone skin as well. 
It promises to lighten dark spots and scars. It also helps to reduce oil seeds regulates sebum secretion to reduce breakouts. It brightens dull complexion, leaving your skin feeling silky smooth, and glowing. One of the most important reasons for exfoliation is that it gets rid of the dead skin cells, ensuring that the other skincare products are absorbed into the skin well. 
I can be used daily but I would suggest to use it 2-3 times a week. You only need a small, which you should apply on dry skin, focusing on the T-zone. Massage in circular motion, you will notice flakes which is dead skin, blackheads and dirt, later rinse off with water. My skin after is smooth and glowing and with every use my skin improved. I am a fan of Japanese and Korean skincare so I would recommend this product for anyone as it is suitable for all skin types.

Special offer! Get 10% the Ginvera Marvel White Marvel Gel here!




Little Ondine Nail Polish Shade Sweet Liquor
Since I tried the Little Ondine nail polish in december, I literally don’t want to use any other polishes. Little Ondine’s new innovative formula cumulates the following all-in-one benefits: easy peel off, natural ingredients, odour free, dry fast. Little Ondine is very different from other nail polishes as it requires no nail varnish remover and does not smell at all. I am one of those people who cannot maintain their manicure for more than 2 days, it always chips and my nails end up looking disgusting  which is why the nail polish from Little Ondine is a great solution for me as I can remove it whenever I need to. 
How to use:
– Clean and dry your nails before applying
– Apply 2-3 layers
– Clean edges before they dry
– Avoid touching ANYTHING for the first hour!

Special offer! Nail Polish (Sweet Liquor) and Base & Top Coat Duo – 10% OFF here!



Tarte Cosmetics Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara 
If I had the power to give out awards, this mascara would get one for the best product design – covered in faux-snake leather, this mascara looks stunning. Why 4 in 1? The mascara promises four benefits – lengthening, curling, volumising and conditioning. I have quite long lashes naturally, but this mascara really elongates them, nourishing them at the same time. I would say it is better for elongating than volumising, yet the effect is still marvellous. It is long lasting, and stays on the lashes throughout the day and does not flake! Another plus – it is vegan! A summer must- have!

Special offer! Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara – 10% OFF here!
Special offer! Opening Act Lash Primer and mini Mascara – 10% OFF here!

Ania’s advice:
1. Focus on skincare 
2. Use 2-3 make-up products
3. Book summer vacation!
