Hello ladies,

I just realized I haven’t been posting about my monthly favourites for a while now, so I want to share with you my March favourites. These bad boys I have been using a lot during the month of March.

I would like to start with Glorious Mud facial mask by Beauty Formulas. I love BF products – they are good for my skin, they don’t break me out and they are very affordable. And this mask is not an exception  – it leaves my skin soft, deeply cleaned, poreless and matte. It’s perfect if you have oily or acne-prone skin. Mine is oily, so I use this stuff once or twice a week and my skin loves it.

Another favourite of mine is Nivea lip balm in ‘Milk & Honey’. I told you guys that my skin is oily. But there is one dry patch on my face – my lips. If your lips also tend to get chapped a lot, definitely try this balm – it’s VERY moisturising, smells lovely and costs approximately $2!

Before moving towards my makeup favourites, I would like to mention a fabulous product that is just in between. Yeap, I am talking about Garnier roll-on concealer for the under eye area. It’s the best concealer for covering up dark circles, also it moisturises the tender skin so well. I am definitely going to repurchase that as soon as I run out of it. It’s like a good concealer and an eye cream in one bottle!

Also, I would like to mention  Volume Millions Lashes Excess Mascara by L’oreal. I’ve been using it a lot in March. I am very pleased with the quality and the brush. You can do any look with it – it can make your lashes look very natural, or if you put more coats, you get a more dramatic took, which I love. Like any other L’oreal Mascara, this one is very good.

And finally, my Maybelline Color Tattoos cream eyeshadows. I got these in summer and I used them a lot. But recently I started using them again as an eyeshadow base. These babies really make my Naked2 palette pop. If I do an everyday look, I would use the golden Color Tattoo eyshadow (sorry, don’t remember the name), but if I am doing a smokey eye, I would sweep the bronzy color all over my lid and then apply something like ‘Busted’ or ‘Snakebite’ from Naked2.

So yeah, these are my March favourites.

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,

Hugs&kissed

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 🙂

First of all, let me just say that this nail polish from Sally Hansen is wicked!!! I’ve been into glittery nail polishes for a while now, but this one is so unique to me.

Image

Speaking about my purchases, this bag is something I’ve wanted for a while. I have a decent collection of Paul’s Boutique handbags, but this Molly bag is GORGEOUS. It’s exclusive to Asos, so that’s where I got it from. It’s perfect size, made of great quality faux leather and has gold detailing, which I love. But what you notice straight off after laying your eyes on the bag is this crazy charm.

Image

It looks fabulous without the charm too. I don’t understand why some people say, this London-based brand is tacky. It’s quite edgy and bold, but I am sure there are people, who can pull it off.

Image

Okay this Master Smoky shadow-pencil from Maybelline is great! It’s cheap but the quality is amazing. I have very sensitive eyes and eyelids, but this one works perfectly for me. I think with my skin and hair color, brown eye pencils look better on me, than black ones, so I got this in color ‘Smoky Chocolate’.

Image

So this product can be used as a pencial and as an eyeshadow. Just draw a thick line and smudge it out to create an eyeshadow effect.

U guys probably know, how much I adore Watson’s and their exclusive products. Vivienne Sabo is a makeup brand that u can only purchase at ur local Watson’s, as far as I know. VS is such an amazing brand, that offers stunning products for VERY afforfable prices. I love their lipsticks, blushes, eyeshadows, etc. So the last Sunday when I went to Watson’s I got two eyeliners from Vivienne Sabo in ‘Chocolat’ (I love brown, remember)) and ‘Carbon’ (every girl needs a black eyeliner). And guess what? I got a gorgeous Vivienne Sabo powder as a gift. It’s silky and smells good. It actually reminds me a lot of my Dolce&Gabbana powder, but hey it’s so much more affordable!!!! 🙂

Image

Image

Luckily, I was allowed to pick the color, so I got the darkest one, which is pretty light anyway. I mean the bad thing about Vivienne Sabo is that they have really light, even pinky colors in terms of their foundations, concealers and powders. I have no idea how this fact can be explained, maybe it’s becuse the brand is French and French women have mostly fair skin…

Image

The packaging is sleek and pretty.

Here come my new booties from one of my favourite UK brands River Island. I got them for half the price and I am pretty happy with them. I love how soft the leather is, the studs and buckles.

Image

See? Told you there were cuties=)

Speaking about the sad part, i have no idea, where is my previous River Island order. It’s been almost 20 days, since I placed it. I’ve been contacting RI customer care team, but no one is replying, which is upsetting. I hope my jeans have not been lost 😦

Image

Image

Do you understand why I am so sad now?)

And look who I’ve seen wearing  graffity print RI jeggings:

Yeap, it’s British singer Cher Lloyd.

So yeah, I am very upset that my parcel isn’t coming. And when I’m upset I get…

Nutella is the best therapist, everyone knows that)

Let’s just hope I get my jeans soon! fingers crossed:)
