It’s pretty buttery and easy to blend,I like that. The downside for me is the smell,it has a faint perfumed one and I don’t like it at all.

Shades: 4/5

4-stars

IMG_20180713_185348_077

It has 3 shades, 1.a gold warm-toned shimmer one ,2.white one with a pink shimmer (my favorite )and the 3. Pale Blush color with gold shimmer. I really like all of them, but I use the most the middle shade (2) it gives me the perfect summer glow.

Overall: 4/5

4-stars

I love it!It’s so affordable (2.99 euro),the shades in the palette are pretty good . Love how my face glows using it , so I’m very happy with this product. (picture down below shows how it looks on my skin-aka on the tip of my nose and corner of my eyes)

Clinique Pep-Start hydroblur moisturizer review!

giphy (5)Hello, my darlings! How are you this week? Do you already have summer plans? I finally have, going to Sweden this week for vacation(so look out for a blog post of that). But today I want to talk about skincare, to be exact about Clinique Pep-start hydroblur moisturizer.Let’s start with the review!

About the product :

IMG_20180614_125308

Which skin type is it good for?
✔ Normal
✔ Oily
✔ Combination

What it is:
A lightweight, 24/7 hydrator that provides matte moisturization, instantly blurs imperfections, and preps for makeup.

Solutions for:
– Oiliness

If you want to know more…
This lightweight, oil-free moisturizer instantly blurs imperfections and provides all-day hydration, while immediately reducing surface shine and providing lasting oil control for up to eight hours. Great for use alone, under foundation, or for touch-ups throughout the day, skin looks naturally perfected with a matte finish. It’s the ideal way to give your skin the moisture it needs, and the forgiving retouch that blurs the look of pores and fine, dry lines.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
– Parabens

What else you need to know:
This product is allergy tested, non-acnegenic, and free of fragrance and oil.

My Thoughts:

Consistency: 4/5 stars

4-stars

It feels very slippery, but smooth when you put it on your face. It does feel like a silicon-based primer on the face. I’m not mad about it.

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

3-5-stars

It’s too oily for me…sadly. I’m used to every single “for all skin types expecialy oily skin” products never working for me ,but I still buy them…Why??? Becouse I still hope that maybe it will work(If you don’t know my skin is very oily and acne pron). I think it’s better for winter or fall when my skin is a little bit on the dry side.

Overall: 4/5 stars

4-stars

IMG_20180614_125340

Overall it’s not that bad if I use it twice a week like a primer in this hot summer,but I think it’s better for my skin in winter. So if you have very oily skin keep that in mind.

 

 

Tell me in the comments,Have you tried this product?What’s your favorite Clinique product?

That’s it from me

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).

IMG_20171119_151317

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

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

Tell me in the comments, What’s the last time someone surprised you?Was it in a good or bad way?

This set, It’s a great way to try some pricey product before buying it.After trying I can say I will totally buy the lipstick, but the BB cream is just not for me.

Makeup Revolution Redemption Palette Iconic 2 review !

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 ).

The manufacturer promises : A perfect mix of pearl, shimmer and matte shades. Totally collectible and a pure sellout

 

 My Thoughts;

Shades: 5/5 stars

5star

You have sparkles, shimmers, and mattes all in beautiful brown tones.Perfect for everyday use.

The Formula: 3,5/5 stars

Essence The Lash Curler Mascara review

The manufacturer promises:crazy curl! the lash curler is a new mascara innovation and has a manually rotating brush. unique on the market, the brush can be twisted manually as needed – sometimes more and sometimes less – while you apply your mascara to create extraordinary curl and volume. since the curl mascara is twisted by hand, it doesn’t require batteries. an absolute eye-catcher that’s fun, too! opthalmologically tested.

My Thoughts:

Shade:4/5 stars

4-stars

img_20170708_162225.jpg

Very pigmented black

The Wand:5/5 stars

I love it!The tip is so good or my lashes in inner corners!

The Formula: 4/5

Okay, so it will not give you the crazy fake lash effect, but more natural look.I like it , it’s not clumpy, goes on pretty smoothly.But with all that ”curler thing” it can get messy if you are in hurry.

img_20170708_161602.jpg

Overall:4/5 stars

4-stars

I like it!It’s fun to use.And I like the packaging.Will I repurchase it?Maybe.
