Ah yes, August is over and it is time for my favourite month, September! Wooooooo ;P But before september, a new in post is in order, don't ya think? Se here is how good (or bad) I have been with spending my money this month :P
This time a shorter post, I have not done a NOTD post in quite some time :) My nails are short again! They were quite long but started breaking, so it was time for me to go on the shorter side. I like them short dough, they are more practical and hopefully will not break as much. I have on my nails Denim Moore by Catrice, it is one of the colours that is leaving store shelves at the end of this month. It is a beautifull blue with tiny tiny tiny sparkles :)
What do you think? Do you like longer nails or shorter? Why? :)
Long time no see, who would have thought summer can be so hectic... so much stuff to do, so little time. I actually planed to do some posts in advance but I just did not have time to do it... And when I had a few spare minutes I was too lazy :P oh well, here I am today. I got for you a review of a mineral foundation I was eyeing for quite some time and I finally decided to get it, more acuratelly I got it by accident, because my order was mixed up, but people at licila.si were kind enough to let me keep it :) Here is what I think about it :)
Everyday minerals base comes in a nice plastic packaging with a white lid. Packaging is nice and sturdy and the bottom is transparent, so you can see how much product is left. On the bottom is a sticker with the name of the colour and ingredients. You get 4,8g / 0.17 oz of product which will last you for quite some time.
This mineral base is in a loose powder form, but it is not as messy as I expected. I just put a bit of product in the lid, swirl my brush in it ( I use RT expert face brush) and applied it to the face. It feels like you have nothing on your skin while providing sheer covaridge. It is buildable to medium covaridge but it must be done in thin layers, othervise it can look powdery. It has a matt finish, but it looks natural. Because it has more of a sheer covaridge it might not be ideal for people batteling acne and severe redness, but it does a great job at evening out your skin tone. I usually use it first and than use concealer over some spots or on the areas where I think I need more covaridge. It does require a bit more work than liquid foundation, to apply it, but I think the finish is well worth it.
Foundation lasts nicely all day, It did become a bit oily troughout the day, but it did not budge or slide off my face. It also did not cause any break outs. Also if you apply too much product it is easily fixed, just spray a bit of setting spray all over your face and that takes care of the powdery look, leaving you with a nice natural dewy finish.
I personally think this foundation is really nice for people with oily or normal skin and to wear in summer because it is so light. It comes in many shades and finishes which is a big plus.
All in all if you are looking for a mineral powder foundation go with this one, you can not miss :) and if you are not sure if you would like it or not, or which colour is the best for you, you can find testers. You can find this product on licila.si or on Everyday Minerals online store.
What is your favourite foundation to use during the hot summer months?
I recently posted my top 10 summer nail polishes post and now I finally have some time to show you my whole nail polish collection (so far). I will show my collection in three diferent posts, divided by brands and try to write something about every nail polish :)
I got this palette at the same time as my Petal Pusher palette by Wet'n'Wild but I forgot to talk about it before. Does it ever happen to you that you use one product constantly but forget to review it aldough you plan to :P that happens to me all the time :D Well the review is finally here :)
This palette comes in a slim plastic packaging with a transparent lid so you can see all the colours that are in there. Packaging is thin, but feels a bit cheap and weak, aldough it did survive some traveling. there are three eyeshadows in this palette and it comes with a spondge tip applicator and a little sintetic brush. I do not like to use those but they might come in handy if you need to retuch your make up on the go :)
At the back of the palette are some instructions on how to use different colours (aldough you can use them however you want) and a list of ingredients, both in english and french.
Now to the actuall shadows. I am a green and purple addict, so you can only imagine how much I love this colour scheme :) Colours go together really nicely. I miss a real brow bone shade (not a fan of light green shimmery brow bone), but overall I like the colours. Browbone and eyelid colours are nicely pigmented and both shimmery, crease colour (purple) requires a bit more work to be opaque, but it is not crappy by any means. All colours blend nicely, without any patchyness, there is a bit of fallout with the eyelid shade, but nothing mayor. None of the shades creased on me, they did fade out a bit after around 6 hours, but were still nicely visible at the end of the day.
All and all I really like this palette, and if these colours do not appeal to you there are many more combinations to choose from on Destination Pretty :). For the price, colour payof and overall quality of these shadows I do not think you can go wrong :)
Do you own any of Colour Icon Trios by Wet'n'Wild? Which one is your favourite?
I was going trough my nailpolish collection recently, because I am planning to do a nail polish collection post and I realized there are some polishes I just love to wear in summer time :) Aldough I am wearing a lot of gellack recently (it just makes it easyer for me, because I do not have time to do my nails every other day), those are still my go to polishes for the summer.
How long has it been since I posted some make up looks here?
Too long, I say! :) Well here is one I did recently, just the eyes, because I was testing out a new skin product and it broke me out badly :/ Hopefully I will be able to post more make up looks like this, since I am wearing make up almost every day, but because I do my make up at around 5:30 am there is never good enough lighting to picture it. Ok, I stalled it long enough :) here is the look.
Hello lovelies :)
I hope your summer is as good as it can get, mine is kinda hectic at the moment. I am working everyday and I need to study for a few exams that will probably be around the end of the month... Well between all that and my gaming habit I almost never see the sun so I an quite pale this summer (pale for my standards at least :P). I thought a bronzer might help me with this "problem" so I bought this bad boy some time ago :) and here is what I think about it :)
Makeup Revolution Medium Matte bronzor comes in a round plastic packaging that is quite sturdy. it has a transparent lid with a gold imprint on it. At the back of the packaging there is also a mirror that is a bit covered with a sticker where it states all the ingredients. You get 6,8g of product. When you open the packaging there is also a round flat spondge at the back of it, I took it out, since I do not like using spondges for applying bronzor, but it is nice for touch ups on the go :)
The shade is a medium brown with a bit of an orange undertone, it is not at all as orange as it shows on the pictures, but sadly my phone camera likes to pick up any orange colour and make it more orange that it actually is :/ It is a nice colour for anybody with a warmer skin tone and I think it will work for fair an medium skin tones. It is not insanely pigmented, which is actually good, but it can be build up without any patchyness. It lasts on my super oily skin for around 4 hours and than it starts to fade a bit, but there was still a bit colour visible at the end of the day.
All in all I really like this product, especially the packaging, which is really convenient if you want to do any touch ups on the go :) Slovenian readers can get this bronzor on licila.si, along with some other shades, International readers can get it in Makeup Revolution store :)
Do you use bronzer? If you do, which one is your favourite?
I hope you enjoyed this post :)
Have a nice day ;)
