review-_stuffLong time – no writing, I was missing this, so inspiration struck me to get back at it.  I accumulated some new makeup stuff, new for me, long time on the market and in other peoples drawers, as I have gathered on the internet. I will do a mini personal review for each one of them, I don’t find it necessary to give a full post for every individual piece, which means that I like them, and I use them, some I would repurchase and I will mention those, but others not.

Make-up break-up

crema

My skin is not great, I have my share of hormonal acne and blackheads from time to time, but sometimes I receive compliments on how my skin looks, in terms of glow and texture. I credit this solely to the fact that I never sleep in my makeup and to my cleansing routine. I thought I would break it down for you here.

Brilliant Bobbi Brown Blush

blush

If someone would ask me what my dessert island product is, for sure I would answer, in a heart beat, blush. I buy every cheap blush I see and like, then end up never using it because I don’t like the texture or colour or packaging or longevity on the skin. Because blush is my dessert island/one product for the rest of my life thing, I never gave up on it, but also, very reluctant on buying an expensive one because that was my last hope in finding the perfect texture/colour/aesthetic/staying power in a blush and I didn’t want to be disappointed, until one day, not too long ago…

H&M – lines and shadows. A review

IMG_5244 copy

The newly introduced H&M beauty line is very welcomed in the sea of budget beauty buys. It has everything you need for make-up, hair and body, full package.

My angler eyes fished only two products that I wanted to try, without too much risk involved. I chose an eyeliner pencil and an eyeshadow.

I will go right ahead and say it: they are amazing, by far the best ones I have ever tried, though keep in mind I didn’t try so many, nonetheless best eyeliner pencil and eyeshadow in the whole wide world! Now that I got it off my net I can go ahead and dive into the reviews. Continue reading

The 5 steps natural dewy face

Thermal_Water_Spritz
I’ve always been a dewy face gal and always will be. I embraced the oil when I had oily skin. Now that I have normal skin I do everything I can to make it super fresh and dewy.
I see girls wearing powder and they look beautiful with it and I romanticise with the idea of using it, but I notice every time I give powder a shot, my face looks flat and unattractive. The same goes for liquid foundations with a matte finish and no need to mention powder foundations, no thank you.

One step perfect: Clarins toner review

clarins_bottle
As an acid toner virgin (shocking!) I didn’t know what was the best product for me from all the sea of possibilities the market has to offer. Although none of the affordable brands don’t seem to make acid toners (at least not where I live), the luxury products market is full of them. Thus, I decided for the most popular and supposedly the gentlest of them all, as the name would suggest: Clarins – Gentle Exfoliator Brightening Toner.

Garments & Co.

Whether you are on a budget or you just love the basics and like to sail the norm core boat or you stay way away on the other side of the river all in for some on trend pieces, there are just those items that always make the cut into everybody’s wardrobe. I have to say I am one of those people who likes things to be easy breezy, simple to combine, so, in my wardrobe you can see that everything goes together, throw it on, don’t think about it kind of thing.

The one where I let the cat out of the bag

Bag Illustration

I really think that a good bag (and a good pair of shoes) can make a whole outfit. Think of it like this, you are just another sheep in the herd with a bag that every second person owns, but find your perfect bag that suits your body shape and personality, this way, you can create your own unique style. Also you can instantly tell what kind Continue reading

The hunt: Foundation – BareSkin from bareMinerals

BareSkin Illustration

I bought a new foundation, I was running out of my last one.

I am more of a ‘one foundation at a time’ gal, I don’t like to use products that are past their expire date and that would totally be the case if I had more foundations in rotation.
