As a base I used two coats of Sally Hansen Diamond Strength in 460 Save the Date which beautiful burgundy color. As a top coat I used my new glitter top coat from CATRICE - 45 Kitsch Me If You Can. It has big pinky gold glitter and then small multicolor shimmer.
Today I would like to do a little overview of mascaras that I bought recently. The first one is AVON Infinitize mascara and the second one was part of Ladybox November - CATRICE Better Than False Lashes. Both are black and have brush the size of my eye.:-)
I am BB cream girl.;-) Well, I usually do wear BB cream. I prefer original Asian BB cream especially from Lioelie. Easy to use it, wear it, has high SPF, brightening and hydrating properties. If I should wear foundation it would be for a bit more special occasion - date, concert, etc. It would be THIS one - Clarins Everlasting foundation (Teint Haute Tenue).
Once again I was shopping at DM drogerie where I found "new" Limited Edition from Catrice cosmetics. It is limited Arts collection - 3 pallets and 3 nail polishes. In Slovakia you can get just two pallets - pink and green one. Pink represents Baroque and green Jugendstil. The last one, orange which represents Art Deco, is not available in our country. The price in DM drogerie was less than 8 euro for each pallete which is not bad at all. ;-)
I recently bought two of tree nail polishes which are part of CATRICE Arts Collection - limited edition. Pink, orange gold and green; all are massive shimmery and very nice. You can see the shimmer right on the nails. The nail polish bottles are unique and on each is different pattern. The price in DM drogerie where you can buy Catrice, was around 2,70 euro which is the same price as for regular nail polishes.;-)
I have never own mousse blush. When I saw this in DM drogerie near checker for less than two euro I had to have it! I know this is not a new thing because I saw this kind of mousse blushes around summer. But it was in sale and when I look at it it was very nice. The second reason was that during winter my skin get a bit less oily and this would be better than powder blush. More natural.:-)
This is first time that I am writing this kind of blog. So please bare with me.:-) I usually like to change my make up a lot. That is not because I am so talented and have a huge imagination. I just each week buy something new and therefore I like to try it, test it and see how it works.
Máme druhú adventnú nedeľu! Ja stále nemôžem uveriť, že už je po Mikulášovi a do Vianoc je to už len "pár" dní. Mikuláš prebehol v chorobe a tak isto aj celý víkend.:-( Takže čajíkujem, užívam si svoje super teplé ružovučké "kroksy" s kožušinkou, ktoré mi doniesol Mikuláš. Waw, musím sa mu veľmi poďakovať! Sú teplučké, perfektné pre zimné mesiace a kožušinka sa dá odstrániť takže aj v lete ich určite využijem.;-)
I like to do my nails.:-) I know that I talked about it before, but when I see girl/ woman with nicely done nail the girl/ woman looks so much put together that if her nails are bare or even worst gnaw out (nails or skin around nail). This red manicure is super easy, festive and quickly done.:-)
My first and ever purchase from KIKO Make- up Milano.:-) I hear about KIKO from French YouTube girls. I bought this in KIKO shop in Rome, Italy. The shop was packed with girls (because of the sales) and it was really hard to see, touch or try anything. I asked one younger shop assistant if this mascara is for length or volume and she recommended it to me for both. She said "Oh, actually I am wearing it right now." She had amazing long lashes and therefore I bought the mascara.:-)
At first I would like to point out that I have never
used cleansing or make - up removing wipes. I am almost 30!?! Could you believe
it?:-) Ok, I used wipes for hands. I realized that everyone around me is using
some kind of cleansing, removing, calming etc. wipes. They are convenient to use.
It is a big time saver, you do not need any water, great for travelling, and
you can use it everywhere and anytime. So why I have never used wipes? I just
do not know.:-)
I am not the only girl that has days where hair just does not like me. There are flyaway
everywhere, hair with no volume, flat hair, oily roots...Well, sometime I just
make a pony tail and pretend that my hair are good as they are. I know it is a
shame. I heard a lot of good things about DOVE dry shampoo which can be used
also as texturizing product. I found in DM drogerie similar one from Balea for
about 2 euro. It was good price and Balea products are quite good. This Balea
dry shampoo (trocken shampoo) is excellent for me.:-)
I hope that if you read some of my blogposts you can tell that I am kind of nail polish junkie.:-) I do like to try new nail polishes, glitters, stickers, nail art ornament and new techniques to do my nails. I usually do my nails twice a week. It is quite often, but part od the reason is that usually after 3 to 4 days one of my nail get chipped. I have never tried anything from Illamasqua. I was really surprise when I received nail polish (varnish) from Illamasqua in Ladybox October. You can buy Illamasqua nail polish 15 ml for £14.50 from official Illamasqua web site.
Are you the same person as me that you never have enough of balm and mascaras? As always I do have several (I mean 6 or 7) open balms and mascaras. Some of the balms are in my purse others at work or home. I use balm constantly either for lips, cuticles, dry upper parts of my hands, heels, elbows, scratches or bruises. Almost on any part of my body. Even on my nose if I am sick.:-)
Once again I bought bit too much when I was shopping in DM - drogerie. This time I was looking for some nice glitter nail polishes, glitters, stickers or anything that would make my pre - Christmas manicure so much nicer and festive. I found these amazing Nail Art Special Effect Toppers from Essence!:-) The price for each was less than 2 euro and therefore I had to buy them all!
This was my first oil that I used on my hair. All over the beauty blogs and on YT are girls that swear by Aragn Oil and its benefit for everything - hair, body, face... I looked thru eBay and found Argan Oil from Vitamins. Price for 100 ml was around 10 euro.
During my stay in Rome, Italy I did not want to put loads of make - up and spend 30 minutes of doing so. I wanted to be presentable and neat. This look will take you 10 minutes and you can leave your house for adventures of the day.:-)
I am big fan of using any kind of face masks. This Tea Tree Calming Mask Sheet from Skin 79 was part of Ladybox October. I used sheet mask before and I was very pleased with it. It was sheet mask from Balea.
I really like to use all kind of different oils on my body, hair, face, hands, feet. This from Caudalie - Divine Oil (Huile Divine) is a special one. It is dry oil specially designed from four different oils - grape oil, extra-virgin argan oil, extra-virgin hibiscus oil and sesame oil. The price range for this Divine Oil is a bit higher, for 100 ml you will pay around 35 euro ($ 49).
I tested this Avon calming effect - redness corrector for a few weeks but still I cannot decide if it is good or not. The size is 15 ml and I bought it for about 2,5 euro. I tried to apply it with finger or brush, with or without face primer. Because I do have red cheeks and if it is hot in the room or outside my cheeks just get so red and hot that they are more visible that I would like to. Whou, such long and complicated sentence.:-) Basically, hot = red cheeks = not nice look.:-)
This would be very short blog post about Lioelie Triple the Solution BB cream SPF 30 whitening wrinkle care. I bought this from prettyandcute.com for about 20 euro after I saw several YouTube beauty gurus talking about how great it is. All was true.:-)
I do not have a one stable day cream - moisturizer and I like to try and change it a lot.:-) I bought Clarins Daily Energizer Cream - Crème Eclat du Jour on eBay in four sample sizes and was not more than 10 euro. Which if you want to try something new and do not want to buy a full size product, is good way of testing new things.:-)
Today I would like to share my opinions on Avon Magix Face perfector (perfecteur de teint) with SPF 20. I do have combination oily skin and I need to use primer for better application of foundation and also I need to prolong the wear of it.
I am not hyped up by the face sprays. I see face tonic, beauty waters and so everywhere. I bought Caudalie one and that I like a lot because of the smell and that it contains essential oils. I do like deep cleansing mask from Liz Earle that I reviewed. You can check the review here and therefore was curious about another product from Liz Earle.:-)
Well, I even do not know how it happened that Elizabeth Arden become one of my favorite cosmetic companies that I love almost everything that I try. This day cream from Elizabeth Arden - Prevage anti - aging moisture cream broad spectra sunscreen SPF 30 is one of my most loved creams that I use on daily basis.:-)
I know that is far too much from beauty, but I went for a small trip to Rome - Italy and want to share some pictures and thoughts. I did buy two things from Kiko Cosmetics which I will show you later on my blog.:-)
I heard about YSL Lipsticks so much good. When I saw them on Facebook page katkaparfumery.sk for 15 euro!!! Yes, you read correctly, I had to buy them.:-) I did choose one YSL Rouge Volupté Shine No. 8 and one Rouge Volupté No. 29. Both are pink. They are even better than my expectations.:-) LOVE them both.:-)
I color my hair on a regular basis each two months. I do not change my hair color extremely. I like to have my dark brown color a bit lighter. I wanted to try new permanent color Olia from Garnier till moment I saw commercial!:-) The price is less than 5 euro which is very nice! I bought this color in DM drogerie.
For today face I used MUA (Makeup Academy) eye shadow trio in Innocence which I received in September Ladybox. Trio is really nicely pigmented baked shadow, contains from light beige, gold-brow and dark brown color, can be applied with brush or ring, bit too much shimmer for my liking. Good for travelling, the case is hard plastic.
V Septembrovom Ladyboxe bola novinka - micelárna voda od Dermacol Perfect Cleanser 2in1 odličovacia a čistiaca voda. Som veľkým fanúšikom micelárky od Biodermy, ale vždy chcem vyskúšať nové veci ak môžem.:-)
V Októbrovej EVE boli, ako každoročne, kupóny na zľavy do nákupného centra Aupark. Väčšinou takéto akcie obídem, lebo nakúpim viac ako by som mala. Tento rok som sa rozhodla, že sa pôjdem zúčastniť, ale s presne stanoveným limitom na minutie.:-)
Dnes kratší blog post o líčení očí. Podklad/primer na očné tiene od ELF, béžový perleťový tieň nanesený bruškom prsta na celom viečku paletka CATRICE. Palety očných tieňov od CATRICE mám veľmi rada, sú dobre pigmenované, vhodné na rôzne typy líčenia, ľahko sa nanášajú, rozotierajú, nanášam aj prstami aj štetcom, cenna okolo 4,50 euro. Modrý základ pre linku ceruzkou CATRICE - veľmi silno pigmentovaná, dobre sa nanáša, neťahá viečko. Na vnútornú polovicu oka som štetčekom na linky naniesla bledo modrý odtieň - paleta CATRICE a na vonkajšiu stranu viečka som naniesla tmavo modrý odtieň. Vnútorný kútik oka som zvýraznila bielym trblietkavým tieňom.:-) Maskara od Rimmel Lash Accelerator - dobre predĺži, ale žiadny zázrak. Na obočie som použila ceruzku od Rimmel.
Pri mojom poslednom nálete na katalóg AVON, myslím, že to bola 14-ka som objavila podklad pod očné tiene - eye shadow primer (base fixante pour ombre a paupieres). Cena bola super, okolo 1,30 euro a primer má 3,5 g. Super nie?:-) To aj ELF je pri tejto cene drahší.
Nikdy som nebola veľkým fanúšikom používania ceruzky, púdru, fixky, gelu, čohokoľvek čo by sa dalo použiť na obočie. Pravdaže sledujem zahraničné blogerky a starostlivosť o obočie, resp. o jeho zjednotenie, tvar, zvýraznenie alebo dokonca samotné zviditeľnenie, nie všetci sme obdarení krásnym hustým tmavým obočím ako Audrey Hepburn, je veľkou časťou príspevkoch na blogoch alebo na YouTube. Hovorí sa, že oči sú bránou do duše a obočie je predbráním?:-) Krabička Ladybox júl/červenec obsahovala paletku na obočie Brow Addict Famous. Povedala som si, že je to znamenie a mala by som konečne niečo s mojím obočím mohla vymyslieť aj ja.:-)
