WEEK HEROES #9

Well hello guys!

Firstly I wanna state right away – I hate rainy weather. Now where I live it’s constantly raining and you now that heavily, but that tinny tiny crapy one, the one that it so annoying and freezing. oh…even now I feel angry :)

Done with weather issue – moving to more pleasant topic – beauty.

My first love is Caudalie Beauty Elixir. The most hyped up skincare products out there in the beauty community I suppose. It’s a toner / miss packed with essential oils. I use it in the morning as a toner and during the day when I feel the skin tightens. You know that feeling, like someone’s pulling you skin in a different direction. Yes, I know – I’m a weird person with strange feelings. As I said because of the crapy weather my skin feels less hydrated and need a boost – this is the bit to go for!

Makeup wise – Maybelline Diamond Glow quad in Coral Drama. Love from 1st sight. I love all the colors, the texture, the versatility – everything about it. Stay tuned for in-depth review with swatch tomorrow morning. For now you can just trust me – it’s a good one!

Ultimate care staff – jojoba oil. I’ve already spoken about it in my Monday post and yes, I feel like it should do it once again. It’s just an amazing oil, good for hair, face, body, nails. All-rounder. Travel-friendly. Money-saver. Just read the Monday post, I listed all concerns it can cope with.

Tangle Teezer. This is perfect brush – it make the brushing process miracle – knots detangler, scalp massager, hand sizer, color admiration. You can use on both wet and dry hair. I love spreading hair serums / oils / treatments with this, it makes it evenly and no greasy hands. Dah!

Another exciting announcement made my week. Have you heard? Do you know the one I’m talking about? MAC Disney Maleficent Collection (spring 2014). I haven’t seen any of the products yet, nothing, but I knew then and there – the packing should be amazing, I have to have something just for the sake of the packaging. We all are fond of cool packaging / embellishments / signs. Please, tell me I’m not the only one!

Do you have any recommendation for me to try out? What have you been loving lately?

WEEK HEROES #8

Have you noticed that week passing by? I didn’t.

I always get so excited to write those posts, cause it makes me really think about that products that stood out for me this week. I don’t wanna grab random 3-5 products from my stash I call them my favorites, I really want to mention meaningful bobs and bits. That the whole point, right? And I never schedule this posts, like I can do with some during-the-week ones.

So let’s get down to business?

Benefit ‘Coralista’. Why I even stopped using that blush on a daily basis? GORGEOUS peachy pink blush with subtle shimmer – what is more there to ask? Nothing, exactly! If I was made to name my top 5 blushes, this one will definitely make the cut.

Butter London ‘Royal Blue’. If you follow me on twitter you probably know the moment I painted my nails with this baby. (If you don’t follow me on twitter, well… you definitely should!). Back to the nail polish. It’s just the most beautiful dark blue. Now everyone is going crazy over Essie’s After school Boy Blazer, well this Buttel London one is my boy. Absolutely stunning. I’m sure this will pop up a lot on my nails … and toes.

Speaking of nails. Sally Hansen Instant Cuticle Remover. I’m not very picky with the removers and I don’t  use those much, but this week was a SPA session at my apartment – did my nail and toes and both times used this staff. It’s good, like really good. Softens the cuticle, makes it easy to push back. I’m satisfied!

I found my old iPod Nano. Yes, I used to be a pink lover. It has so many good and forgotten songs. I been listening to it non stop! Here some songs that just rock – ‘Why can’t I’ by Liz Phair, ‘Now That We Found Love’ by Heavy D & The Boyz and ‘I don’t know’ by Erika. Remember those? If not now, yes, right now, give them a guuud listen!

Rimmel ‘Wake Me Up’ Foundation. Love it. Wore it. I have the full review on that one here – check for more details and love.

Now I’m off to paint my nails and toes. Have a good Sunday, guys.

EYES=SOUL

Time to talk about make-up. I’m truly 100% eye-shadow junkie. So eye make-up girl. If I was to choose between lip product and eye product – definitely eyes!

Speaking about experiments with the shades, of course I’m more a neutral follower, but sometimes I can go “crazy” (not much of course and not on a night out).

TIP:

If you want to go out of your comfort zone (yes, we are still talking about the eye-shadows), just go ahead and choose your “crazy” color and make it work the way you want it. On the crease, on the lash line, under the eye, inner corner – whatever you feel. The tip is not to experiment when you have plans during the day. Perhaps you have a day off and you are planning to spend it watching your favorite TV show or doing laundry and cleaning the house – *blink*  this is THE moment.

I’m not saying I have a tone of eye-shadow, probably not (or not YET) but I’m cannot stop myself from exploring the ocean,

I have several CHANEL ones (my lowest reached ones btw), 2Inglot pallets, around 10 MAC depots, of course individual ones, and yes, I placed an order on Urban Decay Naked one, it took me soo long denying I need it, and justifying the splurge, but I finally didn’t it and cannot wait when it arrives!

Experiment. Don’t be afraid of colors.
