If you like foundations that have super sheer coverage and feel very lightweight, definitely try L’oreal’s Nude Magique. It looks very natural! Mine is in the shade 150 Nude Beige.

I also got a new eye cream, which is great, and two new concealers.
First, I needed a new undereye concealer. Since I heard so many positive reviews on Rimmel’s Wake me up concealer, I decided to get it. Mine is in the shade 020 True Ivory. It’s really moisturising and covers dark circles beautifully.
Second, I got my fav concealer for pimples and highlighting. True Match by L’oreal is seriously amazing stuff. However, I couldn’t find it in my shade 3 Creme, so I got 4 Beige and it came soooooooo pale, like almost white, so I am a little upset. But it really is a wonderful concealer.

I was super excited to visit the Museum of Tsunami in Hikkaduwa. It is sistuated in a small house, damaged by tsunami in 2004. You can see how water changed things and also drastically changed lifes of people. The most touching are the pictures drawn by children. This is how they see and understand tsunami. If you go to Hikkaduwa, I definitely recommend visiting this museum as it helps you appreciate your life and people around you.

There is also a mass grave of train victims and a beautiful statue of Buddha, gift of Japanese government.

Since I had a couple of hours to spend in duty free zone in Dubai, I decided to buy a couple of new makeup items.
First, I needed a good undereye concealer. So I popped into Mac.

Select Moisturecover concealer is wonderful – it hides dark circles, moisturises skin and looks natural. Mine is in the shade NW25.

Next, I picked a new blush. It is Mac’s mineralize blush in Warm Soul, which is a beautiful peachy gold color with some subtle shimmer. It can also be used as eyeshadow.

And finally, I got a new brown eyeshadow from Benefit. Very pretty dark chocolate color with shimmer. The shade is called ‘kiss me, i’m tipsy’

I really enjoyed shopping in Dubai Duty Free. They have lovely Arabic souvenirs, cool stuff for home, candy, makeup and insane amount of perfume.
Whenever I go to a vacation, I always get a new perfume. I use it during my vacation, and then when I go back home to my routine, this smell just brings back all of those fun memories 🙂
So this time I was stunned by Cavalli perfume counter. They all smelled amazing and it was super difficult to pick one. I don’t remember the names, but I liked the new pink one, ‘exotic’ something, and the black one. Cavalli perfumes are very bold, sexy and quite sweet. So if you are a fan of fresh scents, you are probably going to like them.
I ended up buying a set of Just Cavalli perfume 75ml and body lotion. Nice value for around $90 and lovely smell. It’s floral and quite sweet, very sexy and daring, great for young women.

I haven’t posted anything for almost a month. The reason for that, as you can see by the name, was my lovely vacation in Sri Lanka. Weirdly, the Internet there is horrible, so I barely could check my email.
I first flew to Dubai, then to Colombo, and then travelled to Hikkaduwa. Indian Ocean was lovely – warm and nice waves for surfing, or if you don’t like waves, there’s a nice lagoon with very calm water.
I enjoyed seafood there a lot! If you go to Hikkaduwa, you gotta try garlic prawns at Joint in the South Wind restaurant, also they have yummi kalamari and seafood fried rice. Loved shark steak at Top Secret. And, obviously, fruit and juices in Sri Lanka are amazing!!!!!! Try red bananas and soursops. Sooooo good!!!!!!

I don’t have enough words to express my obsession with this cute little bag from Oasis. I recently did a post on this bag and two other, but it’s just amazing. And goes with so many outfits. It’s out of stock at House of Fraser (where I originally got it), but you can buy it at Asos or your local Oasis.
The boots are from River Island (check out my previous posts). Wore them the first time today and they are not only stylish but extremely comfy, too.
