Instead of going for my favourite simple burgundy nails, I decided to make tips of my ring fingers super glittery and festive.

For anyone who doesn’t know yet, I am a massive caramel macchiato addict. I only drink venti btw. The caramel on top looks delicious!

Hi dolls,

You know how obsessed I am with nailpolish and nail art, and so it has been such a challenge for me to pick just 3 nailpolishes that I really really do love.

Okay, let’s jump right into it. My #1 favourite is Complete Salon Manicure by Sally Hansen in color ‘Pat on the black 660’. I own different nailpolishes by Sally Hansen, but I feel like Xtreme wear and Diamond Strength don’t dry too fast and start chipping too soon.

Image

The color is gorgeous. Apply one coat and you get a beautiful creamy purple/burgundy, apply two, and it’s almost black. It’s opaque, not sheer at all, dries VERY fast. The brush is amazing too, and it stays on for good 5-7 days.

My #2 is 60 Seconds by Rimmel in ‘320 Rapid Ruby’. It’s formula and flat brush is very similar to the Sally Hansen’s one, but it starts to chip in 4-6 days after application. But because the price is so good I don’t mind reapplying 😉

Image

As you can see, no matter it’s spring, I stick to my darks, burgundy and red))))

But this color is sooooo beautiful in person, it’s darker, almost burgundy.

The third place goes to P2 Silk Ridgefiller. I love this stuff. I got it as a gift from a friend, who lives in Germany. It doesn’t have any color, but it leaves my nails looking so naturally beautiful and polished. The finish is almost matte.

Image

It dries fast, and I love how it feels on my nails. Also, I know that some people use it as a base coat, but for me it doesn’t work like that. It literally takes 100 years to dry after I apply a second coat of nailpolish.

And now, the Nailpolish Disappointment. It’s weird because overall, I like Maybelline makeup and nailpolishes, but this one was just horrible quality!!!

Image

I was looking for a simple white nailpolish for a couple of weeks now – white nails are huuuuge for spring. I was so excited to try it out, because it looked perfect in the bottle. However, it turned out to be hideous! The color is soooooooooooo sheer, you have to apply at least 3-4 coats for it to look alright. It also dries incredibly slowly. So yeah, very upset with it. If you guys know where I can get a good opaque white nailpolish, please tell me 🙂

Hope you enjoyed,

Hi guys,

Yep, I got some new stuff from Asos. Everyone knows how obsessed I am with Asos) I’ve been shopping there for almost five years by know. They have lovely highstreet brands there and also they have free international delivery with no minimum spend! 🙂

For a couple of years now, I’ve been into UK highstreet barnds. I find that British people not only have sexy accent, but amazing and unique sense of style as well))

That’s is why shopping is not quite fun for me without checking out such stores as Topshop, Asos (they only have online version) and River Island.

At Asos they offer many Uk brands, that sometimes are very good deals.However, I find that purchasing US brands from Asos is not reasonable – prices are too high most of the time.

Anyways, I almost forgot why I started this post (as usually))))hehe

This time I purchased three items.

Image

These dogtooth print jeans from River Island I got on sale. The photo is from asos.com if you are wondering.

I find that no other jeans fit me so well as River Island and Mango jeans do. So whenever I want to purchase jeans online I get them from RI (my size is 6) or Mango (I wear 32). They always fit me perfectly.

These lovely pants have gorgeous dogtooth print and they are so soft! Very good quality!

Next thing I got, is this sweater from Oh My Love:

Image

The sweater was also on sale and they only had one item in stock, so i grabbed it the minute I saw it. I loved the color, shoulder detailing and the fabric – it was said it is 100% cotton! I mean it’s such a trouble to find knitwear without polyester these days 😦

Moving to the part, when I got it, I was really excited first. Then I realised it was NOT at all cotton! But it definitely wasn’t fault of Asos team. The tag of this jumper said 100% cotton, but I can tell it was a big lie. I have a couple of cotton sweaters from Mango and they all feel so much different. Plus, when I tried this burgundy sweater on, my hair started acting crazy -it became really frizzy!!!

Another disappointment about this sweater – it was sweaty… Sorry for this kinda details, I know how gross it may sound. It was obvious, someone purchased it, wore it a couple of times, then put the tag back on and returned it to Asos (what kinda person would do that?!?!). That’s why they had only one sweater in stock. My first thought was to send it back. But then I thought, the jumper was really nice for the price, no matter the fabric. So I washed it. Properly. Several times in a row))

After all I am happy I kept it, but this is definitely the last time I am buying something from Oh My Love brand. It’s not nice to lie about the fabric!

And finally the last piece I got from Asos:

Image

May I just say that Asos jewelery is soooooooo unbearably cute 🙂

This lovely little skull stretchy bracelet was originally only $14. And I love the packaging too.

Image

This is how I style it. I am so obsessed with gold, that’s probably because I am Muslim and Muslim girls love everything gold and sparkly))))haha

I love this oversized watch from Paul’s Boutique and I wear it most of the time. I lam obsessed with the combo of this watch with this spikey and skull bracelets, both from Asos.

The sweater I am wearing on this photo is from Topshop, the acid wash jeans are from Lee.

Image

This is the photo I posted on Instagram the day I got my parcel. Overall, I am satisfied with the items I got. If you are wondering about the price, the order was around $100, but because they had 20% off discount code that day, I only payed $80 for this package, which I think is a very good deal.

What do you guys think about online shopping? What are your favourite online stores?

Hey guys,

Today’s post is 100% dedicated to my obsession with lipsticks 🙂

I would like to start by saying, that I do prefer moisturizing lippies, over dry ones. Also it’s great when a lip product smells good. I like pretty vibrant colors, and I am definitely not a fan of lipsticks that have chunky glitters.

I did swatches for you guys:

Image

From left to right:

  • Vivienne Sabo Charme de Vous 107 (available at Watson’s)
  • Vivienne Sabo Charme de Vous 113
  • Rimmel Kate lipstick in 03
  • Vivienne Sabo Rouge Vintage 411
  • Sephora Rouge Shine 02
  • Vivienne Sabo Charme de Vous 112
  • Barry M 100
  • Vivienne Sabo Charme de Vous 101

All of these lippies are amazing quality and nice colors, but if I had to chose one, I would pick Vivienne Sabo Charme de Vous lipstick in 112. It’s soooo flattering!!! I remember buying it for the first time, I was with my cousin and my bff. We all look very different – different skintones, hair colors, eye colors, face shapes, etc, but we got this lippy in the same color, and it looked stunning on each of us. So yeah, if I had to use one lip product for the rest of my life, I would pick this shade without any hesitation.

Hope you guys enjoyed this post,

Hugs&kisses

And Merry Christmas to everyone!

Hi guys,

Sorry for not posting for a whole week. I can’t say I’ve been super busy or something, it’s just the cold weather is affecting me too much – I haven’t even bought any makeup! 😦

Anyways, I’m back and I would like to tell you about my obsession with everything burgundy. I must admit, just a couple of months ago I thought it was ugly and boring, but everything changed when I got burgundy lipstick from Vivienne Sabo, then I got a lovely nailpolish, which I think is a perfect dark red color.

Image

I am not a fan of bright red, so burgundy is what I call ‘perfect red’. The nailpolish is in color ‘320 Rapid Ruby’ and the lippy is in color 107. And sorry for the mess on the background 🙂

I am a tiny bit conscious of going out wearing this dark lipstick, coz I am not used to it. For the last couple of years I’ve been mostly wearing nude, pink or peachy lip products. But I’ve decided to give it a shot, and I am definitely going to wear it during the photoshoot, I am having in January.

Image

It’s quite a pain in the butt to apply it precisely though. Especially for those, who are not used to bright/dark lipsticks. So I do recommend to use a lip liner. Trust me, it makes the application as easy as it can be.

I told you guys, I haven’t been makeup shopping for a week now, but I recently got this cute mug from Starbucks, which I am absolutely obsessed with.

Image

Loving my hot green tee 🙂

Oh, and you guys can see my Sephora clear makeup bag, Sephora lipstick, Vivienne Sabo lip gloss, Urban Decay De Slick setting spray and my favourite Neutrogena lip balm.

I also got something special for my GIVEAWAY, which I’m going to tell you in my next post.

Damn I still can’t believe I am 23 already)lol The time is flying too fast! But we all know, that there are two awesome things about having a Birthday – spending time with people you love, and GIFTS=))))) And because everyone is aware of my makeup obsession, I got so many makeup gifts, plus I bought alot too.

So here are things I got recently:

Image

I got a couple of items from Sephora, some of them were pretty good deals btw

Image

I seriously love this makeup bag. I got the largest one and it’s really spacious. It fits alot of makeup  and it doesn’t look too bulky. Love it.

Image

I got this eyeshadow for $3!!!)

Image

Okay this highlighter/eyeshadow is AMAZING!!!!! Not only the packaging is great (the surface of this stuff has gorgeous snake print), but it’s also increadible quality! And you can use it as 4 different eyeshadows or a highlighter. And I got it for$7:)

Image

I also got these lipsticks. As you can see I am really into nude lip right now)

Image

I also got these lipsticks from Vivienne Sabo. Love how moisturising they are. And the colors are super vibrant too.

Image

My lips have been a bit chapped lately, so I got this lovely lip treatment from Neutrogena. VERY moisturising and not sticky at all.

Image

This Pupa kit is great! The eye makeup remover is very gentle, even for my extremely sensitive eyes and the mascara was unxpectedly good. I mean I had a mascara from Pupa a couple of years ago and I wasn’t impressed with the quality, but this one is my new favourite!

Image

And the last, but definitely not the least is Lee Stafford. Works great for my hair. So I got these two bottles on my birthday. Totally recommend. A bit pricey but 100% worth it!
