My Thoughts:

4-stars

It’s very liquidy as most micellar waters. Very good if you have dry patches because it has hydrating properties. Smells very pleasant.

The quality of my skin after use: 3,5/5

3-5-stars

Well, I can’t use it every day, too many oils for my skin..but for taking off my makeup 2/3 times a week it’s perfect.Like it’s my favorite lazy day skin care product.

Overall: 4/5 stars

4-stars

I like it. I really do!The price was a little too high for my liking, but the quality is top notch so it’s worth it. Will I repurchase it? Maybe, I still want to try some Micerall waters from other brands. If you are interested you can find it here.

Today Let’s talk about my first product from Makeup Revolution.Just last year we started to see this brand in our stores.The stands were really sleek and eye-catching , so of course, I got something as one of my Christmas gift (plus it was affordable ).

 My Thoughts;

Shades: 5/5 stars

The Formula: 3,5/5 stars

My Hair Journey !

I always loved to experiment with my hair .I had it long and then very short .Tried lots of washable hair colors, and finally 3 years ago I dyed my hair with a permanent hair dye and never looked back. Today I decided to look back at my hair Journey from my childhood to 2016….Enjoy!

childhood
Childhood Photos with my brother and mom.

I was born with blond hair and blue eyes(shocking right?). Through the years it became a little dark, almost reddish light brown. Almost all my childhood my hair was short. Why you ask?My mom told me I had very weird hair texture , and it didn’t look good long .So that’s why short hair.

 

 

2010 mati
2010

So 2010..the “emo” years. I cut my hair shoulder-length and used a shampoo that gave a darker shade to my hair.

2011 mati
2011

My hair is longer and I have no eyebrows..because why do you need one?!Right?

So the first photo is from 2012 Summer, my hair is lighter and longer …

The second one is from winter the same year,Hair is darker(I really need to find that cool shampoo) and I’m with Dana from Carpet of thoughts

Ah… 2013..Still, eyebrows are not a thing in my life.How weird does it sound, those pictures are a month in between? If I remember correctly.The second picture was my first time trying a washable black hair dye.

I started 2014 with my still long brown hair, but finished it with purple (first time ever)permanently dyed hair.

 

2015 mati

The 2015.I rocked some red(more ginger red) hair.I loved it , but after seeing almost every other girl with the same hairstyle, decided I need something new.

I did go back to purple in 2016.The first picture shows my hair after it faded.The second one is after my dear friend Ali (love you ) did my hair .I wanted to try ombre and I did enjoy how my hair turn out .The last picture is from a charity event.My hair is dark brown(but in pictures it always looks black).

 

My favorite permanent hair dye is PALETTE DELUXE .I just love the color range and it stays on for a long time, doesn’t damage my hair as much.

Looking back at all the hairstyle and colors I had ,I can’t wait experiment some more .Hope you enjoyed reading it(and looking at Baby Anna ).

Tell me in Comments.What is your biggest hair mistake?

That’s it from me

Till next time!

June Empties!

So let’s go thru my beauty trash!I did a little cleaning of my beauty corner and bathroom and those are the products I have used up.

Disclaimer: Why am I not using my own photos?Because if I use a product every day I'm not gentle with it, so when the time comes to throw it out I'm basically throwing pieces of the product.For the sake of understanding what the product did look before I got my hands on, I'm using photos of the official ad's

scrub

NSPA Exotically Creamy Coconut Scrub

The manufacturer promises: Use it daily to leave skin smooth and with a delicate fragrance. Created in the UK by spa experts, it is paraben-free and has not been tested on animals. Packed with natural vitamins, real fruit goodness, and passion fruit seeds, it will lift away dull skin and invigorate your senses. The tropical aroma of creamy coconut will liven your senses. This natural shower scrub is 7.6 fl oz in size.

My Thoughts: I’m so sad this scrub ended, it was so good.My skin after it felt so smooth and clean.Definitely, will repurchase!

Collection-2000-Pressed-Powder-17g-Ivory-18-236993

Collection Pressed Powder 17g Ivory 18

The manufacturer promises:Mattifies skin & controls shine for up to 10 hours.Contains ‘skin correct’ complex to minimize breakouts.Soft, blendable texture evens out skin tone.Light to medium coverage.

My Thoughts: This is one of my holy grail products!It’s soooooo goood !My skin looks and feels great after using this powder.The only downside is you can’t really get it anywhere else but England and it’s annoying as hell.So always when I hit the pan, I have a little panic attack inside,because I never know when can I get it again (God bless friends who have relatives in England and can bring me twice a year this powder!)

skarb dlja nog

Zelenaya Apteka Scrub for feet

My Thoughts: This one is Ukrainian all natural brand, so I was excited to try this scrub.I can say it wasn’t as good as I expected.The ”beads” in it where too big and not as much to really do something, but for the price (Just 2 euros) it can be a good one for the winter.

essence all about matt! fixing compact powder-1All about matt! fixing compact powder

The manufacturer promises: if you prefer pressed powder, this fine, compact powder is for you! it can be applied above foundation to mattify your skin and set your make-up. for a matt, natural and smooth complexion. it’s perfect when you’re out and about with your girls!

My Thoughts: When I can’t get my hands on the collection powder then I go to my local drugstore and by this one.I really like it, it does the job, I don’t get oily and my makeup stays on all day.What else can you ask for?
