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’

Hi guys!

It’s crazy and I can’t believe April is over!!! The good thing is that I’ve tried a lot of stuff during the month of April and I would like to share with you, ladies.

Let’s start with my beauty favourites:

The big bottle from L’oreal is my favourite hair treatment. ‘Extraordinary Oil’ makes my hair super heathy, shiny and smells lovely. Also it doesn’t make my hair look greasy at all. I apply 2 pumps of this stuff on my hair everyday, trying to put more on the ends. Amazing product. You can find it at feelunique.com and it’s around $20 as far as I remember.It’s quite expensive, but it’ll last me at least 4 months, so I think it’s a pretty good deal.

Next – hydrating eye cream from Garnier. I use this product before going to bed every night, and then in the morning after I wash my face I apply Garnier’s roll-on eye gel. Overall, I like Garnier as it works great for my skin. This particular cream has a nice light-weight and delicate formula which is perfect for young skin.

The 2 nailpolishes on the photo I’ve been wearing a lot lately. In fact, if I’m not wearing my black matte nails, you would probably see me with OPI’s ‘My private jet’. And I love the name too:)

I find that OPI and Rimmel nailpolishes are always such good quality, they dry fast and the most important – they have opaque formulation. Speaking about this matte topcoat, it’s great! Looks amazing on black nailpolish. Just overall a nice product for a very good prise.

I know I’ve been talking a lot about my ‘Peaches’ blush by MAC, but I really think it’s a beautiful color and I’ve been using it a lot during April. Also I like the combo of this blush with Rimmel’s Apocalips lip stain in color ‘Luna’. And OMG I love this lip product! Very moisturising, stays on well, nice color pay-off and it smells like… cucumbers))) Anyways, it smells like cucumbers to me – a very fresh light scent not typical-sweet-lippy scent, you know.

That’s all for my beauty and makeup favourites.

For my fashion favourites, I thought it would be interesting to write about a celebrity inspiration instead of just clothes. I mean, there is a bunch of celebs out there who have stunning sense of style and fashion, right?

Okay, this month I’ve been absolutely loving this guy’s wordrobe)). And I am amazed by evolution of his style.

I am talking about a 23-year old rockstar from Germany Bill Kaulitz.

This guy used to always be edgy and unique in terms of fashion and self-expression.

That’s how he looked 5 years ago and this is how he looks now. Bill definitely grew up a lot. He used to look ‘gothic boy’ kinda cute and now he looks like a full-blooded hot rockstar.

I love his hair too – very edgy but still cute.

I know Bill’s fashion transformations are a bit over the top for some people, but I think his style is brilliant – a perfect combination of rockstar and a gentleman.

Going to my favourite movie of April, it is most definitely this one:

If you haven’t watched ‘The Devil’s Double’,  watch it – you’ll 100% love it!!! It’s smart but also very entertaining.

For the music I’ve been listening most in April, I’ve picked these songs:

‘Talk’  by Coldplay

‘Pumped Up Kicks’ by Foster the People

and my favourite ‘Jesus for the Jugular’ by the Veils. It’s an OST from ‘the Devil’s Double’ btw, and if you watched the movie you’ll definitely remember what scene it is from 🙂 lol

That’s it it for my monthly favourites.

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.
