REVIEW: Catrice Crushed Crystals - 02 PLUMdogMillionare

Hello Lovelies :)
Today I have for you I quick review of a new Catrice polish.  This colour was the only one that I wanted to get from their crushed crystal, others just were not my cup of tea. (fun fact, I forgot these are the "sand effect" polishes... and I really hate any kind of texture on my nails... oh the first world problems :P)



PLUMdogMillionare is a pourple based polish with pink, blue and purple glitters that are all the same size (small and round).


It has a standard Catrice brush. I personally do not really like it, but it is not the most crappy brush eather. The polish applies  quite nicely, and can be worn alone, or topped over any other polish. I wore it over some black and light purple polish and it looked better than on its own (in my oppinion). 
Even after two coats there can appear some "bald spots" on the nails (a part of the nail looks patchy), so I would advice using three coats.


On these pictures I used only two coats, and there were some lighter patches on the middle finger, but it does not look like that in the picture.


This polish did not chip on me for about two to three days, but I did get worn down nail tips on some of my nails. Because of the type of the polish, you can expect it being hard to remove, and let me tell you, it is really not pleasant. Foil technique is the best choice for removing this pretty fella, because you can damage your nails if you try to do it any other way.

Did you get any polishes from the Crushes Crystals line, or any new Catrice products in general?
I hope you enjoyed this post ;)
Have a nice day ;)

Hello lovelies 

Today I have for you a 16 € makeup challenge (or as it is known, a 20$ makeup challenge). 20$ is roughly around 16 € (give or take a few cents) and let me tell you, it was quite hard to get enough products for so little money. Now let's see what I used, and how I used it.

BODY CARE
 ~Balea Dusch Peeling in Buttermilk & Lemon: Oh my God i can't even explain how good this smells. It's just like a lemon sponge cake with lots of whiped cream yuummmm. I got this one in summer and it was a limited edition unfortunatly, but they still sell shaving gel in same scent :) It's a nice scrub and it's not too harsh on a skin.
Repurchase: Yes!

Repurchase: No.

~Uniq One Coconut: Its the same as original one, but this one is only avalible in summer and it smells like coconut which is one of my favourite scents.
Repurchase: Already did!

Repurchase: Over and over again.

REVIEW: Catrice All Matt Plus Shine Control


Hello lovelies :)
Today I have for you another review. This time I am reviewing a foundation that was recommended to me by Ajda. Hope you will enjoy the post :)




This foundation is supposed to be good for oily skin, since it claims that it is mattifying, longlasting and oil free. I must say it is quite mattifying, aldough I can still see a hint of shine when I apply the foundation, it still gives me a nice natural glow (this might be because my skin is naturally very very oily). It is really longlasting and has a nice medium to full covaridge, depending on how much you put on your face. It is buildable, however it can look cakey if you apply it too much. It also does not feel heavy on my skin, probably because it does not contain oil. 

It comes in a nice glass packaging with a black lid and a pump. (as you can see in the pictures, it can get messy quite quickly... I would like to say it is not my fault that the pump is all messy, but it probably is...)





It is quite thick so it might not be ideal for summer, but it is nice to wear in the winter. I got mine in shade 030 Warm Beige and it is quite dark, so I might buy a lighter shade for winter months, aldough i can still make this shade work.

I think this foundation is worth trying. It is quite cheap (under 7e) and some say it is almost the same as Revlon Colorstay (I do not own Revlon Colorstay so I do not know if this is true or not). The only downside I see is a limited shade selection.

Did you try this foundation? What do you think?
Have a nice day ;)
