Hello my loves!

I’ve been soooooo busy lately with work and I also got sick. So no when I am home being sick and working, I thought I could do another ‘top 3’ post. I love these posts coz it is always such a challenge to choose between a bunch of products, the ones that you really really like. Not only in terms of color, but also quality, consistency, pigmentation, staying powers, etc. But most importantly, these do not break me out.

This time it was actually pretty easy to choose.  Obviously, I haven’t tried all the blushes out there, but from what I tried (a pretty decent amount), these are the best.

First, the double blush. I’ve used it soooo much, even the name has wiped off 🙂 It’s from Vivienne Sabo. You guys know, it’s one of my favourite brands. Also this blush in shade 12 I’ve included to the giveaway I hosted a couple of months ago. Both colors can be used separately, but I prefer blending them. The texture is very creamy and makes my skin so soft.  This blush has matte finish to it. I feel like this product is worth so much more than $5. It is even better than 95% of high-end blushes! You get 2x 3,5g of excellent product for around $5.

Second, MAC blush. I’ve been raving about a perfect peachy/coral shade for a couple of months now and MAC’s sheertone blush in ‘Peaches’ is amazing. This blush is slightly more dry than the first one, but it’s very good too. It has decent staying powers, matte finish and no smell. Like pretty much any other MAC product, I love it. You get 6g of product for around $20.

And finally the third blush is from Rimmel. I love these little blushes, the only bad side – I wish the color range was more vast, coz they only have 4-5 shades and that’s it. Speaking about the quality, it’s lovely, the color is a perfect pink, stays on well, very pigmented, buildable. The shade is ‘020 Pink Rose’. This blush has a beautiful subtle shimmer to it. You get 3g of product for around $5.

Hi guys!

Just wanted to show you guys these two lovely items by MAC, that actually were a gift from my friend Alina. I luuuuuuuve them!!!!

I am really excited whenever I get something from MAC, because where I live now we don’t have any MAC store 😦 And yes, unfortunatelly such places do exist 😦 So every time I travel or my friends go somewhere, my target is MAC))) Obviously, there is a lot of fuss going on around this makeup brand, but come on guys their quality is AMAZING!!! Honestly, I have never been disappointed with a MAC product.

Image

Lovely, right?))) Okay, let’s start with the blush. I’ve been looking for a perfect coral/peachy color for a while now, and from the moment I saw this blush in color ‘Peaches’, I knew wanted it. Again, the quality is great, lovely texture, the blush is very buildable. But I think this shade looks better on deeper skintones, so I am looking forward to being tan again))

Image

The lipsticks is very nice too. Love the packaging and that it’s very moisturising, also it tastes good, not too sweet. It looks much more beigy/brown than on the photo. The lippy is in color ‘Creme cup’, if you are wondering. I think it’s a perfect pink/nude color, that will suit anyone, no matter your skin tone or hair color.

Hi everyone,

These last couple of days have been pretty crazy, and on top of that I feel really sick 😦

So yeah, in between sipping my disgusting lemony/honey drink (ewww) I’ve decided to tell you guys about my fun experience with an amazing online makeup store feelunique.com. It offers a big range of makeup, both drugstore and high-end. But the best part is that it has free international shipping with no minimum spend.  With my first order I didn’t want to go too crazy, so I purchased items I really needed (well pretty much:)

Image

I was running out of my favourite Rimmel Stay Matte foundation, so I repurchased that, and I also got this oil control primer for oily skin. The foundation I am really satisfied with, and it’s very affordable too. It’s not very buildable though, and the shades are a little bit too light, I think. But it definitely keeps me matte! Speaking about the primer, I haven’t tried it yet, but I promise I’ll do a review of this stuff, as soon as I get better and use it at least 5 times.

Overall, I am very happy with feelunique, the shipping was fast, the items came very well-packed. And yeah, I am definitely going to do my makeup shopping there again.

And for those who are wondering, I am constantly adding new stuff to the giveaway.

Image

Right now it includes my favourite blush, 2 lipsticks (Rimmel’s Kate in 03 and Vivienne Sabo Charme de Vous in 112), mascara, eye shadow and a gorgeous bronzer. The rules are simple – you have to follow, comment and like my blog and follow my Instagram page.

Hey guys! It’s really cold outside and I am wearing my favourite sweater and sipping hot chocolate 🙂 Today I’d like to write about my brushes. These are the makeup tools, I use on a daily basis. I don’t think that Malva brushes are well-known, but I absolutely love the quality and price too. They are very soft!

Ok, so let’s start with my face brushes

Image

Image

From left to right:

  • Powder brush is perfect for applying pressed powder, makes my makeup last so much longer. It’s a must-have for anyone with oily/combination skin
  • Stipple brush is used mainly to apply my mineralize skinfinish by MAC. Great for any highlighter/bronzer
  • Complexion brush is my favourite. It’s the softest brush I’ve ever owned. I use it to apply bronzer, but it’s really multifunctional – you can also use it to apply powder and blush
  • Angled Foundation brush is amazing. It makes my foundation look so natural and flawless
  • Blush brush is very soft, too. I haven’t tried many blush brushes, but this one is very good.

My eye makeup brushes

From left to right:

  • Salon 816 brush is used for highligting the inner corners of my eyes. But you can use basically any small brush
  • Small Smudge brush is perfect for applying eyeshadow to the lower lash line. You can also use it for highlighting
  • Angled Contour brush is my favourite eye brush. It’s so precise! I use it for outter ‘V’. It can also be used for crease, but I have other brushes for that purposes
  • Eyeshadow ‘C’ brush is great for padding eyeshadow on your lids. I got two of these brushes
  • Naked2 brush has turned out not as good as I expected. The palette is pretty pricey, and the brush just ‘screams’ synthetic. I mean I’m okay with the fact, that it’s synthetic, but I wish it was better quality. Anyway it works fine for smudging out your crease
  • Contour brush is an amazing crease brush. Love it
  • Small Angled brush can be used to apply eyeliner, but I use it to fill in my brows. I start by using my eyebrow pencil to bring more definition, and then to make my brows look more natural I apply color ‘Tease’ from Naked2 palette with this little brush
  • Salon 530 brush is used for my eyeliner
  • Julia 819 is the cheapest brush, but it’s very convinient if you want to fix the shape of your brows or lashes.

That’s pretty much it. I’ve been thinking of including brushes into the giveaway. What do you guys think? What brushes do you want me to buy for the giveaway?

Hugs

P.S. To enter the giveaway, you should follow my blog and my Instagram account, comment and like any of my posts.

I haven’t been posting for a while, but I’ve been really busy lately. Something important and exciting is happening for me in February:) Sorry I can’t tell yet, but I promise it’ll give me a chance to do more interesting posts and giveaways, which is always a good thing, right?)

Ok, look what I bought

Image

This blush is a perfection! Honestly, the colors are gorgeous, the texture is so nice and makes my skin so soft. And it doesn’t break me out, although many blushes did, so I think this Vivienne Sabo blush is also suitable for sensitive skin. As you might have already guessed, I got this for my giveaway. So make sure you enter! (you need to follow me on instagram, follow, comment and like my blog)

These are the products I got for the giveaway right now, but I am going to add new items!

My last week has been pretty stressfull with sending documents and stuff, so I needed to buy some nailpolish. You guys know, how much I am obsessed with black nail polish (for 10 years already), so I needed to get a new one. Unfortunately, they didn’t have my favourite Rimmel’s ‘black out’, so I got this stuff:

Image

I think black nail polish is very versatile and sexy. I love it. But this dark red color is one of my favourites now too. It’s the perfect red for me – not too bright.

Image

I also got a softening foot cream by Beauty Formulas and a nail polish remover from German drugstore brand Isana. Very satisfied with the quality and the price of these.

Image

The last product, I’d like to tell you about, is my lipgloss from Vivienne Sabo. I’ve been having it for 2 weeks now, I guess. I was really excited when I saw that VS had a new lipgloss line, so I grabbed this instantly. I am also buying one of these lipglosses for this giveaway.

Image

It’s the perfect nude color with some subtle shimmer in it, it has non-sticky formula and smells really good.

Image

The brush is amazing too. Overall I am very satisfied with this lip product. Hope the winner of my giveaway likes it too 😉

I can’t tell how excited I am for this giveaway. With Christmas and New Year coming, I think it’s the perfect time to share my favourite makeup products with you guys. So this giveaway will include makeup from my all-time favourite brands  – Sephora, Vivienne Sabo and Rimmel. I am also going to add more items to the package. The giveaway is international, all you have to do is write a comment, follow my blog and my Instagram page AdileBKK. I am going to announce the winner on January 25th.

So the lucky winner gets:

And the best bronzer ever!!!! This stuff is AMAZING! It’s not orange at all, it’s the perfect sandy-bronzy-shimery product, that makes my complexion glow, my skin gets realy soft with it, and oh that smell))

I am also going to a store, I’ve been told a lot for a while. So I am probably getting more stuff for my giveaway.
