“I got new STUFF” haul

hotHello, my darlings! How are you? Finally, here in Latvia, we got a real winter (with snow, ice and -20 C*).That means shopping for warm clothes and skin care stuff(because my skin is acting up in this weather).And today I want to talk about the skincare/makeup I got recently. Almost all of them I have tried those few days,so Let’s start!

 

Makeup

Processed with VSCO with  preset

Maybelline Dream Matte bb with salicylic acid

in the colour 03 light

It was my first time seeing it in a new design. I like it more than the original one FOR SURE. The colour match is okay for me, not perfect, but at the same time, not the worst( I think it’s the same exact colour as the light/medium was).Overall I’m happy with this product.

essence Camouflage full coverage concealer

When I was browsing our local drugstore essence stand I found this pretty cool concealer that I have never seen before. The price was great (a little under 3 euro) so I got it in the colour 10 nude (sadly the 05 was sold out).It has a pinkish undertone, covers undereye circles and small imperfections pretty well. Stays on all day. The colour match is much better than most “light” drugstore concealers(on my skin). I really like it.

 

SkinCare

Beauty Formulas charcoal clay mask

I haven’t tried anything from this brand, so this is my first product from them.This mask smells really good. I like the consistency and I feel like it does help with the oiliness and imperfections of my skin. It was cheap(under 2 euros with my discount card).Really happy and glad that I got it!

Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Mask

This is my 3rd time repurchase it , so you can tell that I like it a lot. It’s a great mask for oily skin, would definitely recommend.

 

Body/Haircare

Green Pharmacy Shower Gel with strawberries and mint

You know the smell of wild strawberries that you can find just in the forest?Well, this smells exactly like that and I love it!

 Syoss Full Hair 5 Extra Strong Hold Fullness & Volume Hair Mousse 250ml

With my new haircut, a hair mousse is a must! Right now I have love/hate relationship with this one, but I just started using it so maybe in the future I will change my mind.

 

Tell me in the comments, What is the last makeup/skincare thing you got?Did you like it?

Gliss Kur Fiber Therapy review

 

giphy (4)Hello, world!Today I want to talk about amazing “set” that I got for Chrismas from one of my dear friends.I have used all of those products religiously for a month and here are my honest thoughts on them.If you don’t know ,I do dye my hair a dark brown colour every month  (so..you can guess my hair is a little damaged ) .Let’s start!

Processed with VSCO with  preset

Gliss Kur Fiber Therapy Shampoo 

About the product: Gliss Kur Fiber Therapy Shampoo provides visibly improved hair quality. The formula with omegaplex reconstructs damaged compounds in the hair fibers to strengthen the inner hair structure. The hair fiber is protected against future damage by heat-styling or colouring for a long time.

My Thoughts: This is almost empty so you can tell that I liked it. It did make my hair feel clean and healthy, but..it’s not the best one I ever used.Overall a nice shampoo for damaged hair

3-5-stars

3,8/5 stars

Gliss Kur Fiber Therapy Conditioner

About the product:Gliss Kur Fiber Therapy provides perfect combability and spoiled overstrained hair. It reconstructs microbonds in the hair fibers thanks to the innovative formula with Omegplex. This protects the hair fibers from damage caused by heat styling or coloring for a long time.

My Thoughts: I loved this conditioner.It really helps my hair to feel ”alive”,look shiny and..no slip ends!(shocking ,I know!)With this one a little goes a long way.

4-stars

4/5 stars

Schwarzkopf Gliss Fiber Therapy Repair-Leave in-Oil Spray with OMEGAPLEX

About the product: The repair revolution with OMEGAPLEX The formula with groundbreaking OMEGAPLEX reconstructs damaged compounds in the hair fiber to strengthen the inner hair structure. Nourishing oil for shine and suppleness Restoration of the hair micro bonds in the hair fibers Application Shake well before use! Spray directly onto your dry, or towel dry hair. Do not rinse!

My Thoughts: My favourite product in this “set”.I just love how my hair feels and looks after I use this.I did use it right after I dyed my hair and my hair felt alive and smelled nice (and that’s a big thing because my hair dye smells awful).Overall a great leave-in product if you have overprocessed hair.

5/5 stars

 

Overall Impressions 

Processed with VSCO with  preset

I liked it!All the products smell like caramel (Yummy), are very hydrating and really do what they claim to do.Hair feels smooth and healthy.But I felt like using just those products left my hair get oily faster(but that’s kind of expected from those kinds of products for very damaged hair).Overall would recommend you to give it a try if you bleach ,dye or use a lot of heath on your hair.

January Favourites!

20180126_141842

Hello, my darlings!It’s the end of January, the first month of 2018.Where does the time go?! January was a really chill month for me, lots of quality time with my brother watching Get smart (it was still celebration season in our household)so you can imagine how much food I had eaten, and I’m already failing my new year’s resolutions…Who’s with me on this?(But I do try to get better).But we are not here to talk about me failing, but about my January favourites…Let’s start with that!

Beauty Favourites!

HTB1uA4mOpXXXXcpaXXXq6xXFXXXh

Focallure Blush
This month I just loved this blush. It’s so pigmented and has such a lovely finish on the skin, will definitely buy more colours.

Gliss Kur Fiber Therapy

This was a Christmas gift from my lovely friend Alina, and I totally love this. I have used this “set” for a month straight…and my hair is very thankful. It feels smooth and healthy, give it a try if you have very overprocessed hair and need to make it more alive.

FAVORITE TV SHOW

FAVORITE BOOK

The Alien Prince: Kovos (Clans of the Ennoi #2)

38091911

As the heat between them grows, so does the threat of war. 
Prince Kovos of the Ennoi knows a loveless, but politically advantageous marriage will end the decades of bloodshed his people have endured. Kovos’s plans for peace go awry when a human woman interrupts his betrothal ceremony – by declaring she’s already his Bonded mate! At the sight of her enticing beauty, logic leaves Kovos. He can’t focus on petty diplomacy or his boring duties when all he wants to do is claim what is his. 
Years ago, Kovos saved nine-year-old Jenna Harlock from human trafficking mercenaries. By re-entering his life, she jeopardizes his fragile peace accord. Despite her fear of aliens, Jenna’s childhood crush blooms into something she ran from her whole life: love. But she can’t give her heart to Kovos. His enemies have her sister. If Jenna doesn’t assassinate the prince, her sister dies. 
Jenna has to trust her alien prince if they are to have any hope of unraveling the sinister plot threatening everything Kovos has built. If they fail, they will lose more than just their happiness – they’ll lose their lives

Aliexpress Haul part 2!

gH1ad80Hello, my darlings! I hope you all are having a great week so far. This week we are having SO MUCH snow, even right now we are having a strong snowstorm. Today I’m back with another part of the Aliexpress haul. How I said earlier, I did go a little crazy on the  11.11 sales(I still have stuff that is on the way)…..No regret!Let’s start with the Haul.

 

2018-01-24-11-41-15-1.jpg

BIOAQUA 8pcs Collagen Lip Mask

Those I got for my mom as a gift. She really liked the eye patches from Aliexpress, so I wanted to give her something new (but similar to that) to try. The lip masks came pretty fast( in 2 weeks), on the other side of the packaging there is a list of ingredients(all in English).They do give the effect they are claiming to give (plumper, hydrating lips).Overall for the price they are great.

BAISPO 400Ml Self Stirring Mug

HTB1MakwOFXXXXb1apXXq6xXFXXXN

I got this pretty cool mug for my brother, who is too lazy to stir the sugar in the tea.So I thought this one would be a great joke and a handy thing for him.And I was right, he loved it.The Idea is you just push the yellow button and its stars stirring for you. It works on 2 AAA batteries. The mug came with a lid, in an original box(all in English), all is working and still looking great (It’s now used constantly for a month straight)

FAVORITE TV SHOW

Versailles

6f5ac65f431c51b47c8f63854afd0c91

Versailles, 1667. Haunted by the trauma of the Fronde, as the nobles of his court begin to rebel against the monarchy, 28-year-old King Louis XIV of France and Navarre (George Blagden), in a Machiavellian political move, decides to make the nobility submit by imposing a definitive move of the court from Paris to Versailles, his father’s former hunting lodge. Trapped by their king’s “invitation”, the nobles of Paris gradually come to see the castle as a gilded prison, and soon even the most humble courtiers of the king begin to show their viciousness as the alcoves of secrets, politics, and war are maneuvered through, revealing Versailles in all its glory and brutality.

and

The White Queen

81arBJFvDKL._RI_

A portrayal of one of the most dramatic and turbulent times in English history. A story of love and lust, seduction and deception, betrayal and murder, it is uniquely told through the perspective of three different, yet equally relentless women – Elizabeth Woodville, Margaret Beaufort and Anne Neville. In their quest for power, they will scheme, manipulate and seduce their way onto the English throne. The year is 1464, before the Tudor dynasty ruled the country, and war has been ravaging throughout England over who is the rightful King. It is a bitter dispute between two sides of the same family, The House of York and The House of Lancaster. The House of York’s young and handsome Edward IV is crowned King of England with the help of the master manipulator, Lord Warwick “The Kingmaker.” But when Edward falls in love with a beautiful Lancastrian commoner, Elizabeth Woodville, Warwick’s plan to control the throne comes crashing down.
