Friday, August 30, 2013
Hi there, beautiful ladies! Summer gone away so fast. For me it is the last summer in my county, because  I`m going to move away very soon. I so want to enjoy last hot days of this summer. Big changes are coming :) Any way, I decided to make a first post about my monthly favourites.

1.  Astor Skin Match Fusion Make-Up
    30 ml /8,95 €

I will start with my top favourite product of this month. Since I live in a place, where summer months are very hot and sunny, skin needs a good protection from the ultraviolet rays, without melting. This Aston Skin Mach foundation really fuses with skin, it feels and looks very natural, as they promise on the package. It has SPF 20, exactly what our skin needs in summer time. I`m using 101 Rose Beige tone.

2. Ebelin Professional makeup & concealer brush
    3.95 €

This was my frst Ebelin experiance. I also owned few wisps of bust by Ebelin. The brush is very firm, but soft at the same time. It is very easy to wash it. Even though it`s white, it doesen`t absorb colour of foundation, so you don`t need to rub it hard to wash foundation away.

3. Guhl Tiefen Aufbau & Schutz Kur mit Monoi-Öl
    125ml / 5,99 €

I know, this name sonds strange, but it is just a hair repair oil from gardenias flowers. It is such a good moisturaizer for my dry hair. This oil is not washable - just put in on dry and clean hair to nourish them.  I love the smell and creamy structure. I will buy Guhl again defenitely. 

4. Dove Deep Care Complex Handcreme
    75 ml / about 2,5 €

I`m a big fan of caring cosmetics by Dove. I like shampoos and body lotions. This Dove deep care hand cream was a big opening for me this month. Eeen though it contains a deep care complex, so it moisturaze the skin very well and kind heavy for summer time. I use just a small among of the creame to make both hands soft. It doesn`t leave any grease or oiliness on my skin.

5. Fit Me Pressed Powder by Maybelline New York
    9g / about 6 


This powder lasts eternity! The structure is very soft and silky. It has little sparkles, so the skin looks glowing. I`m using 220 natural beige shade, but they have many colours to choose from. The price is also very good. The big advantage of this powder is SPF 15, which makes it my favourite.

Those were my monthly favourites of August, hope this post was interesting for you. It would be nice to know, if you have some favourites from this  month. Let me know in comments down below! Spend your last summer days with pleasure and benefit. See you very soon, ladies.

Garnier Pure Cleanser 3 in 1 + Facial Massage Brush by Ebelin

Ebelin Massage facial brush review garnier pure cleanse 3 in 1 review pictures
Brush by Ebelin
garnier skin naturals pure cleanser face wash ebelin face brush skin care routine


Good morning, dears! Today I will do a review on another Garnier cleanser. I`ve tried Pure Active Oil Control by Garnier before and even did a review on this cleanser. As I was very satisfied with the result, I decided to test Pure cleanser also. One more thing, which attracted me in this cleanser are ingridients. I think natural clay, salicylic acid and zinc are really good to control skin oil, heal the irritations and make the skin fresh and clean.

Pure 3 in 1 comes in standart cleanser tube with comfortable firm cover and pretty design. The texture of a products reminds me of  a tooth paste with blue exfoliating grains. I think texture would be kind hard for people with sensative skin, but I liked how it worked with my skin. Since you can use Skin Naturals Cleanser as mask, it dries ot on the skin very fast and absorbs extra oil from the skin, making your skin matte. I don`t have problems with acne or extra oil on my skin, but I think this cleanser s very good to prevent such problems and simply to make your skin clean and fresh.

The only defect I found in Pure 3 in 1 cleanser is it`s smell. I hate smell of cucumber, and this defenitely smells like cucumber for me. It is not bad at all, just not my favourite.

I`m using this cleanser just as a scrub with my facial massage brush by Ebelin. I like that this brush comes with a transparent firm cover, which protects bristles from the dirt. Brush is not soft, but it cleans my face from blackheads and makes it very soft.

Girls, please tell me your opinion about Skin Naturals Pure Cleanser, if you tried. Did you like it? I heard it dries the skin, but I don`t feel any dryness. Are you? Thanks for being with me. See you later <3


Balea Young Mattierendes Make up & Balea Aktivierende Augenpflege

Hi, dear ladies. Today I`m going to do a very quick review of my Balea skin care products. I was so happy when I knew that  all products by Balea are vegan. Hope this post will be interesting for you.


Balea Young Mattierendes Make up
40 ml 

The first product, that I got is a creamy foundation from Balea Young seria. It comes in two shades - 01 - natural and  02 - beige. I really didn`t like to use this foundation cream. I don`t see those magical effects, which are described on Balea site. They say that Balea Young seria is antibacterial and prevents irritation. Also it gives matte finish look, but this products even didn`t absorbs in my skin. I bought beige colour, but it looks like orange on my skin. Texture looks very watery and leaves sticky feeling on my skin. But, it is just my opinion.

review


 Balea Aktivierende Augenpflege - under eye cream
15 ml 

And the second product  is under eye cream Balea Aktivierende Augenpflege, which I really like. It is not a cream, more like a gel with very light formula. Especially this gel will be useful for people, who have dark circles around your eyes, or this zone is very dry. It was ophthalmologically tested, so will be suitable for people, who wears circle lenses. I`m using it twice per day - in the morning and before to sleep and already forgot about dryness. The biggest advantage of Balea Young cream is SP filter, because we all know how important is to protect our gentle skin from severe sun.

Sunday, August 25, 2013
Hello, ladies. My sister lives in Germany, but on her last vacation she came to me and brought me some cosmetics and skin care products from there. Today I want to tell you about bad skin treatment toner and fluid by Alverde Naturkosmetik. Both products has a natural clay, so it is better to shake them well before the usage.

fluid toner review

Clear Gesichtsfluid Heilerde

The first product is fluid for problematic skin. It has a beige colour and very light creamy consistency, almost like gel. I`m using it before to put my foundation on, just apply on cotton pad and prime my face. It absorbs very face and protect the skin from dust and dirt, during the day.

IngredientsAqua, Alcohol, Glycerin, Brassica Campestris Oleifera Oil**, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Cetearyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate, Loess, Myristyl Alcohol, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil**, Zinc Pca, Cimicifuga Racemosa Root Extract, Vaccinium Myrtillus (Bilberry) Extract, Saccharum Officinarum (Sugar Cane) Extract, Citrus Medica Llmonum (Lemon) Extract, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Fruit Extract, Acer Saccharum (Sugar Maple) Extract, Hellanthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil**, Potassium Palmitoyl Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Xanthan Gum, Tocopherol, Citric Acid, Parfum (Natural Essential Oils), Citronellol*, Llnalool*, Cl 77891, Cl 77492, Cl 77499, Cl 77491.

30ml
3,75 €

Clear Geshictstonic Heilerde

The second product is like usual toner. Looks like water mixed with clay. You need to use it every day on problematic zones on face, decollete or your back. I like it very much, it cleans the skin and make it fresh. Hope in the future I will find this bad skin treatment line again.

Sally Hansen Hard as Nails /Review

Thursday, August 22, 2013
Hello, ladies! I wanted to try Sally Hansen nail polish for so much time already, and finally I`ve bought two bottles of Hard as Nails nail polish in black and violet colours. 
black out virtual violet

1. 370 Black Out
2. 400 Virtual Violet
about 4 $ for each

I fell in love with the colours of these nail polishes. They are very beautiful and extremly bright. The brush is thin, so it is easy to colour every corner of the nails. Consistency of the products is runny, so you need to be carefull to don`t create a mess.

Unfortunately, nail polish needs more time to dry out. It also needs two layers for a good pigmentation and glossy look. But I liked the finished look of my manicure, so I will buy Sally Hansen nail polishes again

By the way, I got a gift from the store after my little shopping:) Love to get free cute stuff!

Yves Rocher products/ Review

Monday, August 19, 2013
Hi, ladies! I`ve read a lot of good review and heard many nice opinios about Yves Rocher products. But, unfortunettly, everything I tried before I bever liked. So, today, I want to do a little review for few products, that I really liked and enjoyed to use. You can buy Yves Rocher cosmetics here.

Ив Роше продукция отзывы

Mattifying Toner Sebo Specific

5.0 fl.oz. Bottle / 150 ml
about 14 $ 

I`m using this toner as a make up remover. It could be used as an every day toner to refresh your skin in the morning or to clean it after long day. Consistency is watery,very light. It doesent dry the skin and perfectly remove make up and clean pores. The only thing I dont like about this products is the smell. It smells like a cucumber, not bad, just not my preferance. It will work good on combined or oily skin (has alcohol inside).

Ив Роше отзывы


Thé Vert Eau de Cologne (Green Tea)
125 ml
about 25 $

Second product is a fragrance The Vert, which is more like a refreshing body spray. It has a smell of green tea and citrus, it is so fresh and breezy. This fragrance is unisexual, so it will be good for men and women. Lemon aromas are perfect for summer time to use them during the day. I can`t say that smell stays long on the skin and clothes for a long time. But the fragrance is very light, so it will not bother you, but will smell very natural on the skin.
The Vert aroma is very close to famous  Green Tea Scent by  Elizabeth Arden, but the second one is more expensive and more strong.

Beauty in darkness: Gothic Makeup

| on
Friday, August 16, 2013
gothic,dark,smokey eyes

Hi, ladies! Today I want to show you how to create a beautiful and dramatic makeup look. The more sparkles and glitter you will add, more attractive your eyes will be.

All you will need is just your favourite drugstore or any other products :
1. Black, white and grey eyeshadows with glitter + black liquid eyeliner
2. Black and white eyeliner
3. Brow gel or some alternative variants (more here) + brow pencil or shadows  
4. Black mascara and fake lashes

gothic,dark,smokey eyes, halloween

1. Prime your eyelids and start to fill your lids with black pencil - inner, outter corners and crease, leave the middle untoched. It will be a base for our shadows;
2. Set pencil with black eyeshadows and start to blend it out;
3. Put a white eyeliner in the middle of your lid;
4. Set the white pencil with white shadows and blend it with the blask one, highlight your brow bone;
5. Line your eyes with liquid eyeliner and wing the line out. Do the smae on the lower lid, creating a double liner. Fill the spaces between lines with the white pencil;
6. Curl your lashes, put on mascara and line your water line with black pencil. Set and fill in your brows. 

You`re done :)

If your eyeshadows spoiled your eyeliner, you can easily put a second layer over the spoiled one. And if, for example, your finished look is not dramatic enough, you can put more eye shadows and blend them out again, untill it will look perfect! Hope you liked this look. Stay with me for more tutorials and reviews.

Hi, ladies! Today I want to share with you my Oriflame experiance. I will do a little review of these products, hope someone will like.

So, I will start with  Nature Secrets Body Cream with Nourishing Wheat & Coconut. I liked it very much. It has a very heavy consistency, which is kind nice, because it moisturize skin very good. This body cream will be useful in cold time of year, plus - it has very gorgeous smell of coconut.
Second cream  is Pure Nature Organic Blueberry & Lavender Extract Calming Face Cream. I fell in love with it. It smells so delicious, like a blueberry yogurt :) It also has heavy consistency, so for oily skin not the best variant. But I enjoy using it.

Pure skin face wash - this facial wash gel is ok. I could not say that it is very good, because it`s not fighting against pimples or black heads, but washing face very nice. Doesen`t make my skin dry.

Body scrub Deep Woods "Columbia" - It smells like coffee and chocolate, it is very light aroma. It works very good, exfoliate old skin perfectly. This tasty smell stays for a long time on the skin after the shower.

Pure Nature Purifying Clay Mask - this mask calms irritations and redness on the skin. Skin feels very fresh and clean after usage. By the way, it is alcohol free.

Tender care protecting balm - it is impossible not to buy these cute little bottles. This product has simply divine smell. You just need to try. I owned vanila and coconut balm and I love it.

And the last product is an Ever Lasting Foundation , which I never expected to be so wonderful. It is like a caring facial cream. Foundation is kind heavy, but it doesen`t shine on my skin and absorbs well. Skin feels very silky and soft after usage. I reccomend for everyone to try it, I will even buy it again.

Little Beauty Haul: AVON

Wednesday, August 07, 2013
Hello, ladies! Usually I don`t buy products by Avon, but before my travel I decided to buy something interesting and not expensive. So here are my products by Avon, which I bought this summer. I will do a quick review for you. Hope you`ll find it interesting :)

color trend cosmetics review

I was very interested to try new eyeliner Always on Point, which always stays sharp, because it sharpens itself (you need just to twist the lid).  On my opinion, the idea is very cool. Eyeliner is very smooth and well pigmented and stays all day long.  

The next one is white pencil Color Trend, I`ve bought it before, but now it has a new design. It doesen`t irritate my eyes (I use it on water line) and also very well pigmented.

always on point color trend, color trend cosmetics review

Liquid eyeliner  Color Trend, also in new design with green chetah print. Good and cheap:) You can draw very thin and accurate lines.

Lip gloss "Read my lips" Color Trend - shade Angel. Shades in catalogue are totally different than in real. They are more nude and transparent. But the lip gloss is very good, smells so delicious. I liked so much.

I`ve bought Conditioning Eye Makeup Remover. It doesen`t have any smell at all and I really like it. This makeup remover is much better than most of other expensive variants.

So the last product is Planet Spa Turkish thermal baths. The smell is so tasty! And it stays on the skind for a long time. The process of using this mask is funny - after it will dry you will look like an old witch :) Unfortunatelly, this mask is not so amazing. After I used it my face became red and was itching. It got better in some minutes, but I think this mask is not for sensative and dry/normal skin.

Pupa Luminys Baked Face Powder / Review

Saturday, August 03, 2013

review swatch

I`ve read lots of bad review and commentaries about this face powder, and I think it really doesen`t deserve this. But, sure, I will tell you just my personal opinion.

Package of this powder has a futuristic style and reminds an UFO plate - has a beautiful streamlined shape. Box from this powder also looks very attractive, it`s shiny and has a beautiful red colour. Inside powder looks like a planet from space.

I have an extremly light skin tone and many products such as foundations and powders doesen`t match it. Pupa Luminys powder fits my skin perfectly. I`m using shade number 01 - ivory beige. Structure of the powder is very soft and light, you will not feel it on your skin. Powder will stay on your skin long and will make the skin matte for the whole day. It almost  doesen`t have a smell.

But everything has it`s  weak point. Sponge of Pupa powder is very bad. I wouldn't recommend to use it at all. It is better to use powder brush to apply it. This powder was my first product by Pupa, and now I want to try something more.

Advantages:
