I can’t believe we are already at this number, it’s just insane ..THANK YOU !!! And now back to the review…I found this little palette in my local drugstore when I was looking for a new highlighter, and decided to get this one..let’s get started the review!

MY THOUGHTS:

The Formula: 3/5

stars 3 5

IMG_20180713_185221_066

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)

Hello, my darlings! How are you doing? Hope this week is going great for you. It’s still quite hot here, and the only thing I can eat is ice cream. Can you believe it’s the end of June and the start of July already? I had such a great June, so many great memories were made. So let’s start with the favorites!

Beauty Favorites!

ISANA Clean + Care 3in1 wet wipes for every skin type

4305615482378_E_1_2

It’s cheap, takes off waterproof makeup and smells really nice! It’s a great product for the price, the only thing I don’t like is how my skin feels after using those because of all the oils in them. So if you have normal/dry skin you will love it .

RdeL Young strobing palette

4305615528519_E_1_4

I LOVE THIS!!! The middle color is the perfect highlight for me, I got it recently and already love it so much. I think will make a review on this one soon.

Essence All Eyes On Me Waterproof Mascara

dKce8_essence-es74205-all-eyes-on-me-waterproof-mascara

It’s summer, so I need waterproof mascara because I don’t want to cry black sweat tears.I picked this one up. I enjoy essence makeup, I think they have really great quality for the price . And this mascara was a winner too, my eyelashes don’t clump up and look pretty natural, but still have that “fake” eyelash look.

FAVORITE SONG

FAVORITE TV SHOW

Whats-Wrong-with-Secretary-Kim5

“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?

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.

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)

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

 

s-l640

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!

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.
