I received this super cute gift set as a birthday gift from a friend. I loved the packaging that looked and felt very expensive and well-made. As for the products, the first thing, I payed attention to, was the smell. It’s a nice clean floral smell, not too intense. I loved how these two products are 100% organic and good for your skin. Also, both bottles say ‘made in Italy’, which is a great thing because products that come from France and Italy are usually great quality.

I must say though, that the shower gel doesn’t seem to be different from any other shower gels I used before (Palmolive, Dove, Adidas, La Petit Marseillais, etc.). And if you pay more than $20 for a shower gel you want it to be special, right?

As for the lotion, I really liked it. It’s very moisturising and feels good on my skin.

Overall, such a kit makes a lovely gift for your friends and family.

Let me start by saying that this palette is such a luxurious makeup item. For $85 you get a beautiful palette that looks like a black wallet when it is closed. But when you open it, it reveals a big mirror, a miniature version of Diorshow mascara, six gorgeous eye shadows, two lip plumpers, two lipglosses, face powder and two little brushes. For this kind of price you obviously get luxe products, that are great quality.

This palette makes a perfect present. I personally received it as a Birthday gift from a friend.

The eye shadows in this makeup palette are shimmery. There is a beautiful pearly highlighting color, two brown shades on the left, and on the right you get perfect colors for Fall – pink, taupe color and a gorgeous bugundy.

The lip plumpers are lovely too. They are like lip balms and after you’ve applied them you get cold and tingly sensation on your lips.

The lipstick are very flattering colors – very natural, so they will most likely suit every skin shade.

Powder is great too, however for someone with oily skin like myself, nothing works better than Rimmel’ s Stay Matte powder.

And, finally, the mascara. This miniature Diorshow has a tiny wand, hence it’s perfect for your lower lashes. Also it’s great for trips if you don’t like to carry a full-sized mascara.

Overall, it’s a beautiful high-end product that will make any girl happy. It’s perfect for someone who already has a ton of makeup so this palette would be a luxurious addition to the collection.

First of all, let me just say that this nail polish from Sally Hansen is wicked!!! I’ve been into glittery nail polishes for a while now, but this one is so unique to me.

Speaking about my purchases, this bag is something I’ve wanted for a while. I have a decent collection of Paul’s Boutique handbags, but this Molly bag is GORGEOUS. It’s exclusive to Asos, so that’s where I got it from. It’s perfect size, made of great quality faux leather and has gold detailing, which I love. But what you notice straight off after laying your eyes on the bag is this crazy charm.

Image

It looks fabulous without the charm too. I don’t understand why some people say, this London-based brand is tacky. It’s quite edgy and bold, but I am sure there are people, who can pull it off.

Okay this Master Smoky shadow-pencil from Maybelline is great! It’s cheap but the quality is amazing. I have very sensitive eyes and eyelids, but this one works perfectly for me. I think with my skin and hair color, brown eye pencils look better on me, than black ones, so I got this in color ‘Smoky Chocolate’.

So this product can be used as a pencial and as an eyeshadow. Just draw a thick line and smudge it out to create an eyeshadow effect.

U guys probably know, how much I adore Watson’s and their exclusive products. Vivienne Sabo is a makeup brand that u can only purchase at ur local Watson’s, as far as I know. VS is such an amazing brand, that offers stunning products for VERY afforfable prices. I love their lipsticks, blushes, eyeshadows, etc. So the last Sunday when I went to Watson’s I got two eyeliners from Vivienne Sabo in ‘Chocolat’ (I love brown, remember)) and ‘Carbon’ (every girl needs a black eyeliner). And guess what? I got a gorgeous Vivienne Sabo powder as a gift. It’s silky and smells good. It actually reminds me a lot of my Dolce&Gabbana powder, but hey it’s so much more affordable!!!! 🙂

Luckily, I was allowed to pick the color, so I got the darkest one, which is pretty light anyway. I mean the bad thing about Vivienne Sabo is that they have really light, even pinky colors in terms of their foundations, concealers and powders. I have no idea how this fact can be explained, maybe it’s becuse the brand is French and French women have mostly fair skin…

The packaging is sleek and pretty.

Here come my new booties from one of my favourite UK brands River Island. I got them for half the price and I am pretty happy with them. I love how soft the leather is, the studs and buckles.

See? Told you there were cuties=)

Speaking about the sad part, i have no idea, where is my previous River Island order. It’s been almost 20 days, since I placed it. I’ve been contacting RI customer care team, but no one is replying, which is upsetting. I hope my jeans have not been lost 😦

Do you understand why I am so sad now?)

And look who I’ve seen wearing  graffity print RI jeggings:

Yeap, it’s British singer Cher Lloyd.

So yeah, I am very upset that my parcel isn’t coming. And when I’m upset I get…

Nutella is the best therapist, everyone knows that)

Let’s just hope I get my jeans soon! fingers crossed:)
