“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.

 

Processed with VSCO with  preset

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

 

Processed with VSCO with  preset

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!

 

Processed with VSCO with  preset

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

Processed with VSCO with  preset

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!

Processed with VSCO with  preset

 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?

That’s it from me

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

get-smart-2

Get Smart

Bumbling Maxwell Smart, Agent 86 for CONTROL, battles the evil forces of KAOS with the help of his competent partner Agent 99.

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.

KISS ME New Statement Earrings

Guys!Seriously, why I didn’t buy it sooner?! I love it so much!!!!Finally, my phone feels more secure in my hand,.And it was just 0.80 euro cents !!!Totally recommend.

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)

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.

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.

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).

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?

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!

 

 

IMG_20171117_131430
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

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.

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.
