Spring Wishlist ~ Tjaša

Hello lovelies :)
I am a dreamer by heart. After all, dreams and wishes are free, aren't they? :) 
After browsing trough the wast world of make up on the internet I decided to make this wishlist, of products that I was most excited about. Only 10 products are here and believe me, it was hard to pick my favourites.


NAIL POLISHES:


a crewed interest - coral, peach, any shade of orange, you name it I love it. I just recently decided there is a huge shortage of orange nail polishes in my collection and so this baby deserved the spot on my wishlist. 

pink about it - As with oranges, there is a huge hole in the pink department when it comes to my nail polish collection. I am not very keen on bright pink, nor on pink in general, but this colour immediately got me, because it just screams spring.

REVIEW: Everyday Minerals tinted lip butter (Caring Honey)

Hello lovelies :)
Today I have for you another review of an Everyday Minerals product :) I really did not know what to expect from this product before I got it, as I read some mixed reviews. Some like it, others do not. I myself like it quite a lot.

REVIEW: Everyday Minerals eyeliner (weeping willow)

Hello lovelies :)
As promised in the previous post, here is a review of the new everyday minerals eyeliner I got recently. 
I hope you will all enjoy reading this review :)


Weeping willow is a nice dark blue colour, whitch I think is perfect if you do not want to use a black eyeliner on a daily basis, but you still want something quite dark.This eyeliner comes in a standard everyday minerals packaging with a nice white lid. It is all plastic and it looks quite sturdy, so it might survive an acctidental drop or two. It contains 1,7g/0.06 oz of product, whitch I think is more than enough to last you quite some time. Eyeliners come in a few different colours:

Blue Velvet, Brown eyed girl, Brown shugar, Cinnamon Street, Green Leaves of summer, Nights on Broadway, Purple Rain, walking after midnight and Come Hither are available on the everyday minerals store: here.



Ingredinets of these products might vary, depending on the colour.

Ingredients (Weeping Willow):
Mica (CI 77019), Lauroyl Lysine. May Contain: Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Ultramarines (CI 770077).




And here is how they advise you to use these products:

 For a more natural line or a smudgy smoky eye, use a dry brush and dip into powder, tapping off excess before application. Using short, small strokes as close to the lash line as possible, work your way from the outer corner to the inner corner of the eye. For a more defined line with a "liquid" look, add a few drops of water to your lid and mix with powders until smooth, then follow directions above.


I am not a fan of mixing water directly into the powder, so I used it with a wet angeled brush instead. It is basicaly the same principle, but I feel it is a bit less messy than mixing water directly into the product. 
I used it wet and dry and there is definetly a difference. 
When I used the eyeliner dry I still got a bit of fallout, aldough I tapped off all the excess. I feel that is a given when working with pigments and is it not a big drawback, it just means it is better to do foundation after the eye make up, and I do that anyway. 
When I was using the product with a damp brush I did not get any fall out and the line was a bit stronger.
 Eather way I did not use much product to create the line, since the product is very pigmented. It also lasted on my lids for a whole day without smudging, transffering on the lid or fading. I used it without eye primer both times, I just lightly powdered my lids before applying it.


Swatch on my bare skin, no primer used


I must say I am really pleased with the product, I see myself using it on the daily basis. It is perfect for anybody that likes eyeliners, but has sensitive eyes. I am using eyeshadows to line for quite some time now, since every liquid or gel liner I tried irritated me to no end. It can be used to create many different lines, from smokey to harsh, it is very pigmented, long lasting and it does not transfer on the lid.

Hope you all enjoyed this post.
Have a nice day ;)

REVIEW: Beauty UK Posh Polish - no. 12 Intergalactic

Hello lovelies :)
Last week was quite hectic. Thank god I already have some posts written in advance. This is one of them :) April always means exam time for me and this year is no different so I do not know what my posting scedule will be in the next month. I will try to post as much as I can :) enough about me, let's get to the review :)



This polish comes in a nice package and contains 9 ml of product, whitch is more than enough. I have this polish for quite some time and I use it quite a lot and the polish still looks like it is unused. It contains nice, different shaped glitter in multiple colours ( blue, red, pink, yellow and green) in a transparent base.





It has a nice slim brush for an easy application. The formula of the polish is quite thick witch is good and bad at the same time. It is good because there are so many glitters in it witch means that you need only one coat of the nail polish for the glitters to really show. On the other side the polish chunks around the lid so it is hard to open it sometimes. In that regard the lid needs cleaning from time to time.



This polish has a really amazing staying power. It stays on no matter  what (except if you bite it of your nails) and can be a real pain to remove. I tried to remove it with several nail polish removers (aceton free or not) and it does take quite some time to take off. Because of this I would recommend this polish to people that do not change their nail polish on a daily basis.



On the picture I used only one layer of the posh polish (over essence colour & go - miss universe).

That will be all for today, I hope you liked this post.
Do you own any posh polishes? What do you think about them?

Have a lovely day ;)

REVIEW: MUA Glitter Ball Eyeshadow Palette


Hello lovelies :)
I love MUA eyeshadow palettes, my drawer is full of them. I still miss some dough, so I decided to  buy one more. They sadly have more glittery eyeshadow palettes than matte. I really liked all the colours in this palette when I saw it so I decided to get it aniway, aldough it contains only sparkly eyeshadows.
I hope you will enjoy this review. Do you have any MUA eyeshadow palettes or any MUA favourite products? :)




This is what is written on the back of the palette:
A spectacular collection of eyeshadows that will add sparkle to your eyes for ultimate impact.

This palette contains 12 eyeshadows, total 9,6g of product. These shades have no names, whitch is a shame, because i really like it when a company comes out with clever names for their make up products. 



All the swatches are made in one swipe on my skin (I did not use primer for swatches).




There are some really nice shades in this palette such as the first 4 eyeshadows in the first row. The black and forest green are extremley pigmented . These shades blend nicely and have minimum falldown. Most of the falldown consists of glitters. The lighter green shade is a bit less pigmented and a bit more hard to apply, but it is not nonworkable. The white glittery shade is more chunky than previous shades. I think it has bigger glitter than the others and it has more fallout.


The gold and dark brown from the bottom row have both the same consistency as the white shade from the first row (you can see some chunks in the swatch of the gold shade), as they both contain same glitter, but they are also both insanely pigmented and easy to apply. I was a bit disappointed about the pink and purple shade, because they overblend really easily when I wanted to use them together (the third eye look I created).

Here are a few looks I created using this only this palette. I especially like the first and second look. The only thing I miss when using this palette is a matte highlit shade and maybe a matte crease shade but other than that I really like it so far. I never really liked glitter shades but this palette sparked my interest. I will definetly use it again in the future :)






I hope you all ennjoyed this post :)
Thank you for reading :)
Have a nice day ;)
