Hey guys!Hope you all are having a great day. Another door is opened on our advent calendar …that means we are closer and closer to Christmas!!!Can you feel the holidays coming ?!Ah, I can’t wait.Today I want to talk about my favorite things this November. November was a cold and a little depressing month for me, but at the same time, it was a pretty patriotic and hopefull time (we celebrated Latvian’s independence day in November ).Okay, Let’s start with the fun stuff!

Favorite beauty products

Acnacid 2 in 1 face cream

My face is going crazy(breakouts, dry patches, redness) this past month and this face cream helped with some of the problems.It’s not drying, but doesn’t make my face oily, I really recommend if you have an oily face, but are experiencing dry patches time to time.It’s a great face cream for the price.

 

rdel-young-power-hardener-koromerosito-300-300

RL de Young power hardener

Guys, you can’t imagine how many bad reviews I have read about this nail polish. It’s mind-blowing for me because I like it even more than my favorite essence XXL nail thickener.

Dzintars-Kredo lux Lipstick in the color T76

I love it..I simply love this lipstick!It’s just perfect, creamy and the color is just amazing and looks good on me!

Favorite Tv show

Created by Bryan Fuller and Alex Kurtzman for CBS All Access, the story of “Star Trek: Discovery” begins roughly a decade before Captain Kirk’s five-year mission — as portrayed in the original “Star Trek” from the 1960s — and a century before the events of “Star Trek: Enterprise.” The series follows the crew of the USS Discovery as they encounter new worlds and civilizations, delving into familiar themes and expanding upon an incident that has been talked about within the franchise’s universe, but never fully explored

Surprise Package: A Bad Boy Christmas Romance

by Kira Blakely

She needs a fiancé for Christmas, so I’ll pretend.
Hard not to when a gorgeous virgin walks into your strip club.
She’s thinks this is an escort service, and that I’m for hire.
Man is she in the wrong place.

Blair is everything I’m not.
Loving. Gentle. Family girl.
I’m rude, arrogant, and do what the fu@k I want.
Right now, I want her.
So, I’ll play the good fiancé.
Tell the family all the right things.
Kiss her in all the right ways.
And when we’re alone?
I’ll claim that sweet innocence.
Make her soul mine and her body tremble.
I don’t want it to end.
And I damn sure didn’t expect to feel this way.
After this, she’ll have more than just memories.
I have a special gift in mind.

All Kira Blakely novels include alphas who know what they want and know how to treat a lady. This is a full length standalone steamy Christmas romance novel. No cheating, no cliffhanger, and a guaranteed happily ever after.

Full Face of Focallure Makeup!

2014 - 1Hello, my lovelies!Hope you all are having a great day. Last week was Latvia’s independence day(I did eat like tons of cake and watch Latvian movies…I regret nothing!).Today I’m back with something really fun…Full face of Focallure makeup (I got a whole kit for birthday) from Aliexpress

How you know I did a first impression post, like a month ago(You can read about it Focallure makeup- First Impressions!here ).Well, let’s start with the fun stuff!

Disclaimer: I'm not a professional makeup artist

Let’s start with my bare face

The first picture is me with a bare face(just moisturizer). The second picture I got my BB cream by Maybelline on(The only non Focallure item I used in this look) ,Ultra-fine light powder in the color No.2 and Sculpting Eyebrow Powder in the color 03(the middle shade of this kit, put it on with the little brush it came)

For the contour(I put it just under my cheekbones) and eye makeup, I used the Natural Color Eyeshadow in the color 03.For the highlight on my cheek, inner corner of the eye and under my brow I used Highlighter Stick in the color 2.Gold.The blush I used was Blusher by Focallure in the color 05.The mascara is Volume Curling Mascara.And the lipstick Velvet Lipstick(Fire Red).

My finished look 

It does look very dramatic…but in daylight it’s not that intense.

IMG_20171119_153148_599

I really like how it did turn out. I did wear it all day (but switched the lipstick to a more everyday color from Dzintars)and it did stay on.Nothing “moved” or “disappeared”, I didn’t get shine in the t-zone(That’s a big thing for me).I’m very pleased with this kit and the quality of the makeup.

Tell me in the comments, What product of this kit you want to see a full review on?

That’s it from me

Skincare mini haul

giphy (1)Hello beautiful people!I hope you all had a great week.Who else is getting into Christmas mood(or is that just me)? Last week for me was …”fun” one, My old tablet died and I wasn’t able to save any photos or notes from there..that’s why my blog was a little quieter then I would like. But there is no bad without good(old Slavic saying) and my mom(bless her soul) got me a new phone as an early Christmas gift.That’s why I’m back today with a mini skincare haul from my local drugstore that carries brands from Eastern Europe and the “Dzintars” Latvian cosmetic store. Hope you enjoy!

Can we just all appreciate the quality of the picture..so much better!

 

So …What I got!

Dr. Sante Cucumber Balance Control.

Mineral Face Mask

Mineral Face Mask is produced by the Ukrainian cosmetic company Elfa for its Dr. Sante Cucumber Balance Control series. The product is formulated with white clay (kaolin). It helps to improve complexion and reduce pore size, making your skin noticeably smoother. The mask regulates sebum secretion and has a matte effect on oily and combination skin.

My thoughts: I have an eye cream from this line, so I did buy this just because I like the cream so much. I like the texture, can’t really say about the effect of using it, you need time for that to show.Overall I like it, and the price is very nice.

Cream All-in-1 Acnacid Reduces Inflammation for Acne 50ml Elfa Pharm

Cream All-in-1
For problematic skin
Shown during the acne and post-acne
It controls the sebaceous glands

My thoughts: It’s not my first time getting this, It’s an okay face cream from acne prone skin.It’s not the best I ever used, but it’s pretty decent for the price.

Dzintars-Kredo lux Lipstick in the color T76

A wide range of trendy mat and mother-of-pearl shades allows choosing the desired color and stressing your individuality in accordance with your style, taste, and mood. Formula based on natural substances with vitamins and moisturizing ingredients that gives your lips a feeling of comfort. Lipstick Kredo Lux gives lips a moist shine and has a pleasant fruity aroma.

My thoughts: I just am in love with the color(it’s a little darker than my natural lip color) and how it feels on my lips, so creamy.The perfect lipstick for cold weather, your lips will stay hydrated and it does stay on lips for some time.The price is great and the lipstick is good, will buy some more.

My little haul with all the things I got

Hello, everyone!I hope you are having a great weekend.I’m glad to say I’m back for good!This week was very busy(lot’s of running around), so I decided to treat myself to some new stuff from my local DrugStore.I did find some awesome things so, Let’s start with all the goodies I got! 

 

rdel-young-power-hardener-koromerosito-300-300

RL de Young power hardener

Interesting fact- I have very thin nails, so having a clear nail polish with ”hardener” properties is always a good idea.Usually, I get the essence XXL nail thickener, but this time I decided to try something new.Will see how it goes.

Essence-The-Gel-Nail-Polish

The Gel nail polish

I love this range of nail polish by Essence.All the colors are so vibrant and long-lasting(I always get the nude ones).Definitely give it a go, if you haven’t already!

Gliss Kur mask Ultimate Repair intense exposure 

If you don’t know I regularly dye my hair.I love to use this particular hair mask after the dyeing process, it makes my hair feel alive again.How you can guess, this is repurchases for me. Highly recommend if you need a fast deep conditioning.

be trendy lose eyeshadow in the color gold peach

I have already one eyeshadow from this line and I always wanted to try some lighter shades, so seeing this particular shade in the clearance basked was like Winning the lottery moment(Okay…maybe be not so dramatic, but you get the point!).Still, haven’t tried it.But from the packaging, Think I will like it.

Essence Studio Nails Banana File

I was really needing a new nail file, and the first one I saw was this, so I just got it. Really good Nail File for the price, nothing special, does the job.I’m satisfied for now.

d7ef3dc3719fa7e663ed34a99a0b737dadd328a3_hq

Favorite Book!

First Grave on the Right (Charley Davidson #1)

8788554

This whole grim reaper thing should have come with a manual.
Or a diagram of some kind.
A flow chart would have been nice.

Charley Davidson is a part-time private investigator and full-time grim reaper. Meaning, she sees dead people. Really. And it’s her job to convince them to “go into the light.” But when these very dead people have died under less than ideal circumstances (like murder), sometimes they want Charley to bring the bad guys to justice. Complicating matters are the intensely hot dreams she’s been having about an entity who has been following her all her life…and it turns out he might not be dead after all. In fact, he might be something else entirely. But what does he want with Charley? And why can’t she seem to resist him? And what does she have to lose by giving in?

With scorching-hot tension and high-octane humor, First Grave on the Right is your signpost to paranormal suspense of the highest order.

FontCandy (75)
Sorry about the crappy swatch picture

I still haven’t opened powder and eyeshadows, so I can’t say anything bad or good about them. About products that I have tried, I can say positive things, for now, my favorite of all is the mascara, it gives your lashes very natural look and is not clumpy. I think will do a look with all of the products in the future.

Overall

Favorite beauty products 

matt matt lipgloss

matt matt matt lipgloss in The color 03

This lipgloss is my favorite thing this month!I just love it so much.The texture is so nice on the lips and it (finally) doesn’t dry my lips out(as some of the liquid lipsticks I have tried in the past) and it’s long lasting and cheap!

Dead-Sea-Purifying-Clay-Mask-440350

Superdrug Dead Sea Purifying Clay Mask

I got this mask as a gift from my mom.I love this kind of masks, they leave you refreshed and your skin feeling clean.This one particular smell like citron.Recommend you to try some of the masks in this range!

CN6626

Creme de coconut and keratin Conditioner

One of my friends got me this in England, and after the first try, this is my go-to conditioner. It smells so good and my hair feels so healthy and smooth after using this, and I can say that’s a big deal because my hair is dyed more times then I can count.
