Mascara I Am Loving At The Moment

Sephora does so many good makeup products and this lash plumper ultra black mascara is one of them. The brush is very big and adds lots of volume. It’s also lengthening and does not make my lashes look clumpy. This mascara is probably my second fav after Vivienne Sabo Cabaret one.
Definitely try out this one by Sephora if you are looking for a good quality mascara.

I have been quite obsessed with Sephora makeup lately and this bronzer is not an exception. First of all, it looks very lux and expensive and it has a big mirror. Second, it’s HUGE!!! It reminds me of Tom Ford bronzer, but it’s way cheaper. And finally, it’s a beautiful product, that looks very natural on your skin and doesn’t make it look orange. It adds some color to your face without being too much. Not great for contouring your cheekbones because it’s quite light, but I love using it for my temples and forehead.

If you have been reading my blog for a while, you probably know that my all time favourite lip gloss is Sephora Ultra Shine Lip Gloss.

I have been raving about it for more than a year.

I first picked it up quite randomly. I was looking for a clear gloss, but instead I picked up their ’42 Precious Pink Jewels’. It is a very sheer light pink shade with gorgeous and very subtle shimmer to it. When I use this stuff on top of my lipstick, the brush always picks up a little bit of the lipstick. So eventually this lip gloss changes the color and becomes less sheer and even prettier.

But today I would like to talk about another shade from the Sephora lip gloss line. The new one I got recently is ’06 Shimmery Fresh Peach’. The Sephora website describes it as ‘shimmering golden peach’ and I don’t have anything to add.

Frankly speaking, I wasn’t too excited when I saw it in the bottle as it looked quite scarry and way too gold. But when I first tried it, I saw how sheer and pretty it looked. This shade looks beautiful both on top of a lip stick and on its own, however I do prefer it with a lippie underneath.

Moving towards the quality, it is hands down the best lip gloss I have ever tried in my entire life. Personally for me it works way better than YSL, Dior, MAC, etc. It is VERY light-weight on my lips, non-sticky and long-lasting. Smells absolutely lovely, has great brush and is super hydrating.

So, basically, for $14 you get a massive tube of an amazing lip gloss! I think it’s a great price for such a high-quality lip gloss!

You can find them at your local Sephora or online:

Sephora Ultra Shine Lip Gloss $14

Sephora Lip Gloss Gift Set $20 ($100 Value)

I know, I have mentioned this palette already in my Summer favourites post, but I thought since I like it so much, I should tell you guys more about it.

Image

Mine is in shade ‘taupemodel 06’, it has 4 shimmery colours and the dark brown is matte. I like that it’s really small and so versatile – you can create so many looks with it, from nudes to dark smokeys. Plus the matte eyeshadow can be used as brow tint if you have darker brows. You can also apply it instead of your eyeliner. A very good ‘basic’ palette. You can buy it in Sephora for $24.

Image

The eyeshadows are great quality and I know this palette will last me good couple of years, so I definitely think it’s worth the money.

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 πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ™‚

Hey guys,

It is the time of the year, when you can just stop for a minute and appreciate the value of friends and family, realize how blessed you are to have these amazing people in your life. When you get a gift, it’s not just something material. By giving something this person shows that he/she cares about you. Isn’t that the most wonderful thing in the world, to know that someone loves you and cares for you?)

That is why I’ve been SUPER excited about the gifts this year. When most of your friends are far away from you, it’s important to know they still remember about you, and show them your love too.

As you can see I got some makeup, which I think is always a great present.

IMG_2922

First of all, this makeup kit. It’s from the amazing Italian makeup brand Pupa. I’ve owned a couple of items by Pupa, and they’ve always been very good quality.

IMG_2927

This particular kit in bronze color (they also have it in black, as far as I know) contains a cute little makeup bag, eyeshadow quad and an eye pencil.

IMG_2936IMG_2931

I am particularly excited about this pencil. It’s shimmery and looks gorgeous on your lower lash line.

The eyeshadow quad is okay. I mean the colors are nice , I just wish Pupa eyeshadows were as pigmented and creamy as my Naked2 palette.

IMG_2941IMG_2946IMG_2938

I also got this lovely bronzing powder/highlighter. It’s from Giordani Gold.

I love the packaging too – it has a little snake on it.

I think, it’s too shimmery to use as a bronzer, but it’s a nice highlighter. It reminds me a lot of Mac’s mineralize skinfinish in ‘soft and gentle’.

IMG_2951

This is how it looks on my skin.

The last thing I got makeup-wise, is this base coat nailpolish:

IMG_2977

It’s called P2Β  Ridgefiller, it’s a German brand. It says ‘Ridgefiller with silk powder for a smooth nail surface’. My friend Katy, who lives in Munich sent it to me, she says it works great for her, so I’m sure I’m gonna love it. I received the package today, so I haven’t used it yet.

IMG_2971

She also got me this ADORABLEΒ  cup πŸ™‚ OMG I am so obsessed with it. Thank you, Katy, I love you so much!

My cousin Medeya sent me a lovely sweater from Mango. I love Mango, it’s basically one of my favourite brands. And this sweater is soft, warm, loose and very very cozy – exactly what you need for chilly winter days. And it’s very versatile too – you can pair it with all sort of boots, jeans, accessories, jewellery, etc. So thank you Medeya, I love you and I love the gifts you give me πŸ™‚

And finally, I wanted to reming you guys about the giveaway!!!

I got something new for it:

I loved this Sephora highlighter/eyeshadow so much, that is why I also got it for the lucky winner πŸ˜‰

Hey guys,

Today’s post is 100% dedicated to my obsession with lipsticks πŸ™‚

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!
