I have been super lazy with my hair recently. I always find time to wash it and style it, but I forgot to properly treat my hair for at least 2 months now. As a result, my hair has become dry on the ends. Even my L’oreal Elvive oil, didn’t work. I have heard many good reviews on hair products with argan oil. I’ve been thinking between Macadamia and Moroccanoil hair masks, but they are way to expensive – $50 for a hair mask, I mean that’s too much. After I while I discovered Argan Oil Nutrition Infusing Mask by Argan De Luxe. The bottle says that this product is infused with Vitamin E, Omega 3 and Omega 9 fatty acids, that help repair the hair and restore softness.

This one was just $10, which is a great price for this product.

The first time I tried it, I applied it and left to sit in my hair for about 3 hours. After I rinsed it, I loved the result – my hair was super shiny, healthy and increadibly soft. Since I have pretty oily hair, I was concerned about this mask making my hair even more oily. But it didn’t! Instead, my hair looked clean and nice for 3 days after, and then I had to wash it again.

The second time I used this hair treatment, I washed my hair before going to bed, then applied this mask, did a bun on top of my had and went to sleep. In the morning I rinsed my hair, blowdried and styled it as usually. My hair felt and looked very healthy and shiny. It had lotsa volume as well.

My advice about a hair mask is to use it once a week and always apply it on the ends of your hair (from your ears and down), because if you put it in your roots, they’ll get super oily. And also leave it in your hair for as long as you can – you will notice the results, I promise!

Speaking about the consistency of this mask, it is very creamy and thick.

You don’t need a lot of this stuff – a little goes a long way! The smell is nice too – it has a very distinctive smell of an argan oil, nothing too fruity or sweet.

So yeah, I definitely recommend this hair mask to everyone. It will moisturise your hair and make it look so much healthier. This is proobably the first hair mask in my life that I will be repurchasing because I loved it so much.

Hello ladies,

I have realised how boring I’ve become – I only buy practical stuff that I need 😦

Have to do something about it. I just feel like in the winer time I have no desire to splurge.

Anyways, let’s get started with my recent beauty haul.

First item I got is this  hair mask. I have run out of my hair mask a couple of weeks ago, but decided to buy a new one only after I got a haircut on Monday. I have this little tradition, whenever I get a haircut, I always buy some new treatment for my hair after that. So since I have oils, conditioners, heat protection, bla bla bla other stuff from Lee Stafford (that I am obsessed with), I realised I didn’t have a hair mask, so I got this one. It was around $8, which is a great deal, because the bottle is huge.

Haven’t tried this yet, but I am pretty sure it’s good. I usually use hair mask only once a week, because if I do more, my hair tends to get even more oily. So what I do with hair masks, I wash my hair in the evening, apply the mask on my hair from ears and down to the ends, then I do a very high hair bun (without rinsing the mask), and go to bed. In the morning I rinse the mask, my hair looks very healthy and shiny after this little procedure.

I also got a new face mask. I run out of my Nivea one, so I wanted to try out something new. I found these in Watson’s and because they were very affordable, I decided to give them a shot.

I have tried all of them. They didn’t break me out, left my skin feeling fresh and matte. If you have combination to oily skin, definitely try them out.

And finally, I purchased this moisturiser, which is amazing and smells yummi

It really smells like chocolate and leaves my skin super soft. Also, I’ve noticed how great are all the Beauty Formulas products. You can never go wrong with them.

That’s it for my little beauty haul. Hope you guys enjoyed it.

P.S. HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY TO ALL OF YOU! 🙂

Hello everyone,

First of all I wanted to remind you guys that the giveaway is closing up on January 25th, so hurry if you want to enter. You still have a chance to win!!! The rules are easy – follow me on Instagram, follow, comment and like this blog.

So the winner is going to get some of my all-time favourite beauty products:

Image

The winner gets bronzer, blush, mascara, lipstick in peachy-pink color, brow gel – all from Vivienne Sabo, which is an amazing French makeup brand. Also eyeshadow and highlighter/eyeshadow from Sephora and Rimmel’s Kate lipstick in nude color.

On weekend I am going to announce the lucky winner. And the giveaway is international btw

Also I wanted to mention, that one of the reasons I haven’t posted for a while is because I’ve been pretty busy with my photoshoot. I was not only a model, but I also did my hair and makeup, which I am super excited about:)

So yesterday the photographer contacted me saying the first photo was ready!

Image

I was a bit nervous because it was my first real photoshoot, but it all turned out to be so much fun!!!

The makeup I used: Rimmel’s Stay Matte foundation, Maybelline Affinitone concealer, Rimmel Stay Matte Powder, for my brows I used color ‘Tease’ from Urban Decay’s Naked2 palette, Vivienne Sabo’s Coup De Genie Eyebrow pencil in 001 to create a perfect arch and Fixateur Eyebrow gel also from Vivienne Sabo.

For my eyes I used: ‘Bootycall’ from Naked2 palette on my brow bone and in the inner corner of my eyes, as well as a little bit of ‘Verve’. On my lids I put ‘YDK’ and ‘Snakebite’. I usually use more of ‘Half Baked’ and ‘Chopper’, but this time I wanted a more drammatic look, so I used darker shades. For my outer corner of the eye I used ‘Busted’, which is a gorgeous shimmery dark brown color. For my crease I used a beautiful burgundy-ish color (if you can say that, it’s a shimmery mixture of burgundy, purple and brown) from Vivienne Sabo’s eyeshadow quad in 66. Instead of an eyeliner I used ‘Blackout’ from Naked2.

On my lower lash line I applied Maybelline’s Master Smoky shadow-pencil in ‘Smoky Chocolate’ and a little bit of ‘Busted’ on top of that. For my waterline I used a cheap 1$ white pencil, you can basically use any one you like, mine is from Golden Rose. I don’t use white pencils too much, but because I didn’t manage to get a good sleep before the photoshoot, I had to apply it. As for the mascara, I used, ‘Diva’s Lashes’ from Pupa.

Next step – bronzer. I used ‘Voyage en Provance’ from Vivienne Sabo (the same one I got for the giveaway). It’s not too shimmery, not orange at all. It makes my skin really soft and smells amazing. Then goes blush, mine also from Vivienne Sabo ‘Teinte Delicate’ in 12 (the winner gets one too).

Also a highlighter for the inner corners of my eyes, cupid’s bow and cheek bones. I used ‘Mineralize Skinfinish’ in soft and gentle from Mac. And to set my makeup I used Urban Decay’s De Slick setting spray because my skin is oily. But if you have dry to normal skin, you probably can skip that part.

Okay, for my lips I used a cheap nude pink pencil from Flormar, my favourite lipstick ever ‘Charme de Vous’ in 112 from Vivienne Sabo (the lucky winner gets it too) and on top of that I used the best lipgloss ever ‘Precious Pink Jewels’ from Sephora. It makes my lipstick last for good 3-4 hours, is not sticky at all! Very lightweight on my lips, smells great and has a perfect applicator.

That’s it for my makeup 🙂 I know, it might sound complicated, but it isn’t. It took me around 35 minutes to do it.

For my hair I used my curling wand from Babyliss. I love it so much!

On my nails I got ‘Xtreme Wear’ nailpolish in ‘Black Out’ from Sally Hansen.

For my outfit (the part of it you can see on the photo), I am wearing a basic black tee from Zara, black leather jacket from Religion, my earrings are no-name, they are from a local store, my watch is from Paul’s Boutique (love it to death))) and my both bracelets are from Asos.

Hope u guys like it 🙂

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!
