Hi angels, how do you feel today? Remember my Essence Gel Nail Polish Haul where I showed you my top pics from the new Essence collection? Today I wanted to tell you more about my favourite shade from the entire haul - a lovely pastel mint shade `40 Play With My Mint`. It is a perfect spring colour, but I love this nail polish so much and can`t stop wearing on a daily basis, even thought it is a summer time.

The Essence gel nail polish has a special quick dry formula, it is thick and creamy like any other gel nail polish, but you don`t need to own a special lamp to `bake` it. It dries out very quick to a gorgeous glossy finish. I love to apply an extra top coat to make my manicure even more glossy and to last a little bit longer. `Play With My Mint` is opaque from the very first application, but I prefer to have an extra coat just to make the colour more intense. The application of this nail polish is very smooth and comfortable, it isn`t streaky at all. Thanks to it`s wide brush it is possible to cover almost the entire nail plate at once. 

On my nails Essence Gel Nail Polish stays for 2 days without chipping and I was rather disappointed with this fact. Especially because Essence claims that this polishes are long lasting. I think that a special base coat and a top coat that retails on their website will make improve the durability of the “gel nail polish”, but it still kind sad. I don`t like the fact I need to own something more for a perfect manicure. But I`m still loving the entire Gel Nail Polish collection by Essence because the colours are simply adorable. And the pricing is amazing, these nail polishes retail for $2 each.

What is your favourite nail polish at the moment?

Lots of love,
Liz

liz breygel fashion blogger fall autumn 2016 haul wishlist

Autumn is my favourite time of a year, it is the most beautiful and romantic season and a perfect period for a new beginnings in your life. And by the way, autumn is a nice excuse to shake up the wardrobe and treat yourself with a brand new garments. Inspired by the fragrance of the fallen leaves I`ve decided to create a little autumn wishlist with a help of an online fashion store Zaful for all of my lovely angels. But there are so many beautiful items, so I ended up by creating two different outfits, which I`m craving to wear this autumn.

Fashion and beauty industry is always tearing me apart between two moods and I would describe them this way - proper little lady, who becomes a women and rebel grunge teenage, who doesn`t want to embrace the adulthood. So the first autumn outfit is something very cozy and casual, something you can wear on a daily basis to school or work. My favourite part of this casual look is a super cute cross body bag, it gives me some Indiana Jones vibes. And the second outfit will help you to release your inner goth out, seriously! Zaful has a wonderful boots collection, so it was very hard to choose which of the boots I liked the most. At the end I`ve decided to add both of them to my wishlist, arent` they precious? I want to become a pair of sexy knee high boots in my next life.

That`s all for today, I had so much fun creating these wishlists for you, please let me know if you liked them. Are you going to refresh your wardrobe this autumn? Don`t be shy to experiment with the outfits, take the risks and discover how far you can go for the fashion sake. Online fashion shop Zaful kicks off with a huge discount on their clothes, accessories and shoes, so hurry on to get the best autumn 2016 outfits for your experimental wardrobe.

Lace Me Up

And what about some classic Hollywood vibe? I`m in love with lace, it always brings and extra elegance and allure without an unnecessary vulgarity to the exterior. You can keep the balance between this two fashion concepts by choosing a delicate dress made of the most lightweight lace.

Can you believe that summer is almost at the end? The back to school time is only few weeks away, so we better be prepared. Stressful? No way, it is the most exciting part of the whole school journey. Back to school makeup and stationery shopping together with a wardrobe update is so much fun, actually it feels more like a therapy than an exhausting routine. August is a perfect time to  start a new life. So as you have guessed already, today I wanted to show you how to create a very beautiful , yet very quick and simple everyday makeup look for school, and don`t worry nothing boring or tedious, I promise it`ll be fun! Ready? Let`s start.

liz breygel makeup bridal soft simple everyday makeup look tutorial blogger pictures

1. First of all we need to make sure our makeup will last all day long - I never liked to carry all my makeup products to school in my bag. Prepare the skin by applying a makeup and eye shadow primer, give them some time to set down on the skin.

2. Fill in your eye brows using a natural looking eye brow pencil or an eye shadow, don`t need to apply a brow pomade for an everyday makeup, it is a little bit too heavy.

3. Now let`s do an eye makeup. I love using a pastel shades for an everyday look, they always look beautiful, not too harsh and not boring. Apply a mix between soft peach and blush pink eye shadow on the eyelid, you can even add a little bit of shimmer, but be gentle.

4. The next step is to put a soft matte brown on the crease, to make the eye look opened. Use a soft blending brush to blend it out and add a little bit more if necessary. And now my favourite part of the whole look - eyeliner. Draw a little wing using a waterproof eye liner, but don`t make it too dramatic.

5. Highlight the corners of your eyes and brow bone with a matte white eye shadow. Curl the lashes and apply a lengthening mascara on your eye lashes. On your wish apply falsies, but use a natural looking lashes or it will be too much.

6. Now you can continue with your face makeup, I prefer to use a lightweight bb cream as my foundation and a loose rice powder to set it on the place, but if you need a better coverage go for a full cover foundation, just make sure it feels light on the skin and lasts long. Be soft on your contouring and blush routine and instead play around with liquid and powder highlighters, this will make your skin glowing and fresh. For my lips I used a nude lipstick and lip gloss, but the lipstick shade is totally up to you, just try to keep the whole back to school makeup look soft and natural.

I wish you to have a wonderful school year, stay beautiful and inspired and thank you for reading my post, I hope some of you will find it interesting and useful. Please let me know in the comment section what is your go - to everyday makeup for school. I`ll talk to you very soon, bye bye :*

Moon Story Eyelash Glue | Review

Last week I`ve finished my tube of Duo Eyelash Adhesive Glue and I`ll be honest with you, I was not absolutely satisfied with this product. Today I`m going to to talk about my new Moon Story Eyelash Glue* that was kindly sent to me by online makeup and fashion store Nur Besten.

The Moon Story Eyelash Glue comes in a bottle with a tiny brush - applicator inside, reminds me a little bit of a nail polish or a lip gloss packaging. It is so much easier to apply an eyelash glue with such fine brush, it is possible to apply just a tiny drop of the glue right where you need it. Brush - applicator helps to save the glue, because of it`s precision.You will also receive a plastic espatula, that helps a lot with the glue application, you can gently press the eyelash closer to the eyelid, without ruining your makeup look.

The Moon Story Eyelash Glue is white, but it dries absolutely clear. It is very easy to remove with a micellar water or an oil based makeup remover. Moon Story does not leave a sticky residue on the false lashes or on the skin, unlike Duo Eyelash Adhesive Glue, though it leaves a little dry`flakes` on the my lashes.

The Moon Story Eyelash Glue  product is available online at Nur Besten store and you can purchase it right away. Don`t forget to use a special 10 % off code ILD10 to receive a ltittle discount. Thanks fot reading me, I`ll talk to you soon.

Hi everyone, I`m back with another review for all my lovely readers. Today on my blog I wanted to talk about Metallic Gel Eyeliner* that was kindly sent to me for a test drive by online makeup and fashion store Nur Besten. When I first saw it on the store I was immediately drawn by it`s amazing cool - toned metallic shine, so I was very excited to receive it and share my opinion with you.

The Metallic Gel Eyeliner comes in a regular plastic pot with a safety seal on the top. The product itself look like a regular gel eyeliner, but a little bit on a dry side. Once the eyeliner is set on the skin, it becomes waterproof and lasts forever, until you decide to remove it. To tell the truth  I found it hard to work with this Metallic Eyeliner, even though the colour is gorgeous. I would describe it as greyish - green seaweed shade with a metallic finish.This shade will look beautiful on everyone, no matter what eye colour you have, but it takes time to learn how to work with this product. 

This gel eyeliner is multifuncional and it is perfect to serve as a base for a smokey eye makeup or just to wear on its own, just don`t forget to set the eyeliner with an eye shadow. I`m also tempted to try this eyeliner on my lips as a cream lipstick, I`ll post my result on my Instagram, so don`t forget to follow me to see how it turned out. The Metallic Gel Eyeline retails for €3.52, but don`t forget to use my 10 % off code ILD10 to receive a discount. Thank you for reading my post, I`ll talk to you again very soon. Hugs and kisses :*
Lots of love,

Nur Besten Makeup Brush Set / Review

Brushes are our first helpers when creating a flawless makeup look. It is very important to have at least few essential brushes to make the makeup application easier, faster and cleaner. Today I wanted to share a review on Nur Besten Makeup Brush Set* that I received in my mail last week. 

The Nur Besten Makeup Brush Set has 5 fluffy face makeup brushes and 5 eye shadow blending brushes. All brushes in the set are made of high quality synthetic hair, they are very soft and pleasant on the skin. The smell of the hairs was a little bit odd, but as I washed and disinfected them with an alcohol it disappeared. The handle of the brushes is matte black and made of wood, it is very comfortable in usage, even though I wish it was a little bit longer. All of the brushes are sythetic as I mentioned before, and it makes them multifuntional - you can use each brush with liquid, cream and powder textures.

2 Flat Face Brushes - soft and fluffy hair, perfect for powders. These brushes pick up the perfect amount of the powder and make the blending and buffing easier.
2 Angled Face Brushes - soft and fluffy hair, good for blush and contouring application. I also like to apply and blend highlighting powders with these two brushes.
1 Tapered Face Brush - A domed brush with pointed tip and round chiseled sides, unlike other brushes from the set it is made of firm and tight synthetic hair, so you can use it to apply liquid contouring and tontouring. 

2 Flat Blending Brushes - great brush for the application of loose eye shadow and pigments.
2 Angeled Blending Brushes - perfect for blending and applying eye shadow in small places, was made for blending the crease area.
1 Eyeshadow Blending Brush - this brush is very similar to a Tapered Face Brush, but it is smaller. I love using it for a cream eye shadow application.

The biggest downside of this Nur Besten Makeup Brush Set is the absence of the packaging. The brushes come wrapped in a plastic caps, but without a case, so unfortunately  you`ll need to buy it separately. But I`m still satisfied with the quality of the brushes. The Nur Besten Makeup Brush Set retails at €20.84 and you can buy them online at the Nur Besten website. Don`t forget to use a special 10 % off code ILD10 to receive a discount :*

Christina Aguilera Perfume / Review

Bring me back my 2007! The time passed so fast I can`t believe it`s been almost 10 years since Christina Aguilera performed to the world her very first fragrance. The one called Christina Aguilera perfume is described as a very feminine and seductive fragrance, components of which have a special meaning for the singer. The parent company of the perfume is Elizabeth Arden and since 2007 they partnered with so many famous singers and actors like Britney Spears, Elizabeth Taylor, Jennifer Aniston, Justin Bieber, Nicki Minaj and many others. Sounds very intriguing, let`s take a closer look on the this perfume.
Christina Aguilera Unforgettable packaged her `Christina Aguilera`  in a curvy black bottle, that reminds me woman’s body dimensions. This bottle shape is an allusion to the Marilyn Monroe body curves, and if you remember Marilyn was a style inspiration for Christina back in 2007. Curves of the bottle is partially covered in a black delicate lace, this design was inspired by the dress Marcel Rochas created for Mae West. Beauty and elegance!

For starters, you will feel a strong notes of sweet tangerine and a little bit of blackcurrant. Heart notes of the perfume contain jasmine, vanilla and peony, these notes are the most long lasting and noticeable. On my opinion, eponymous Christina Aguilera perfume was created for a mature women, but not for younger ladies. It is definitely a night out fragrance for a colder time of year, because of it`s potency and sweetness.

Even though it was launched in 2007 the fragrance is still available in different sizes with matching body care products – body lotion, bath gel and deodorant. But, to tell the truth, I don`t think I will ever repurchase this fragrance, it is simply not my cup of tea. But the fact that it is one of the most popular teen fragrances around the entire globe made me want to try it. If you love sweet and mighty fragrances this scent was created for you. 

Lots of love,
Liza

My skin has always been on a dry side, so when it comes to foundations I always choose BB or CC cream over a traditional liquid foundation. The other reason why I chose a bb cream is because of it`s caring formula - a special blend between a skincare ingredients and a light pigment. Of course it will never provide such a full coverage as a regular foundation, but it never bothered me. Today on my blog I wanted to talk about the Macely Good Afternoon BB Cream* and share my thought on this little cutie.

I`m a lucky owner of shade # 2 it`s called `Berry Berry Tea`and the formula includes a natural raspberry acids and vitamin A, that help to make the skin look brighter and remove the signs of premature aging of the skin. As most of Asian skin care products Good Afternoon BB Cream has a whitening effect on the skin, but I think it takes some time to see the first changes. I`ll be honest with you, I would be glad to see my freckles disappear. PA++ is a new Korean and Japanese UVA rating system, it shows how much protection from a harmful rays you will get using the product. The more pluses you`ll see on the label, the higher is a level of UVA protection. Macely Good Afternoon BB Cream is labeled SPF 35 PA++, so it is a medium level of the protection, but it is much more than I usually see on a bb or cc creams.

The formula of  Macely `Berry Berry Tea` is nice, it has a nice silky texture and it is very easy to blend the cream. The skin feels so so and smooth after the application. Even though it is a lightweight product it has a quite good coverage - a medium to a full and I was pleasantly surprised with the fact. You can always apply a little bit more of a product to boost up the coverage on a problematic areas of the skin. And the fragrance is great, it is very soft and a little bit sweet, I love it! The Macely Good Afternoon BB Cream comes in four different shades so hopefully you’ll find the perfect color match for your skin.

In a nutshell, I adore this product and I think it is perfect for summer. I highly recommend this product to everyone who needs some extra nourishment and care, it feels very lightweight on the skin and brightens up the complexion. The biggest advantage of this product, except for it`s cute packaging of course, is a pretty high level of UVA protection and amazing coverage. Macely Good Afternoon BB retails at €4.69 and you can order it right away at Nur Besten online store. Don`t forget to use a special 10 % off code ILD10 to receive a discount :*

Do you like using BB Creams? Which one is your favourite?

Lots of love,

 Mering Loose Powder by Nanda #800
I`m such a huge fan of a translucent powders, I`ve tried my very first loose powder ( it was a Bourjois Flower Perfection Powder ) few years ago, but before I always was a loyal fan of a pressed pigmented powders. I`ll be honest with you, one of the main reason why I decided to purchase  Mering Loose Powder by Nanda is the packaging, isn`t it gorgeous? It was so hard not to become an owner of this tiny cutie :3 So let me tell you more about this product.

The powder container has just 3,5 g ( about 0.12 oz ) of the product, but don't fret , this tiny size makes the packaging travel friendly and makeup kit friendly as well. I always struggling to house my foundation and powder in the makeup kit. The sponge that comes in a packaging is very tiny and not very comfortable, but it is good enough to use on the go. I prefer to apply this powder with a soft kabuki brush or a wide powder puff, gently pressing the product into the skin.

Mering Loose Powder by Nanda is extremely finely milled, it feels very smooth on the skin, almost like a satin. Because of it`s lightweight formula this powder never looks cakey, it blends seamlessly into the pores and lines on the skin, making it`s surface even and polished. The Mering Loose Powder is a perfect to set the under eye concealer, it doesn`t crease and it locks the concealer on it`s place.

This powder is available in three shades : #800 - off white translucent powder, invisible on the skin, #802 - light beige , #803 - dark beige colour. And don`t ask me where is the shade #801, they apparently forgot to create it hehe :) I would recommend Loose Powder by Nanda for people with a dry skin type like myself, because of it`s lasting powder. It definitely mattifies the skin, but it isn't the best for oil control. 

And what is your favourite loose powder? Are you a pressed or a loose powder kind of girl?

Lots of love,
Liza
