Current Favorites

Hello my sweethearts hope you are all doing great:)I have been pretty busy lately but I have a few posts prepared for you:)
Today I want to share with you a few current favorites I am using almost every single day.

First one is Eveline's Glicerini  hand and nail cream-mask with goats milk,vitamin E and karite butter. Its winter time and my hands get so dry so fast and this has been a life saver:) You only need a tiny bit because it is super concentrated and the skin on your hands will feel moisturised and soft right away.I use it to soften my cuticles as well as they tend to get very very dry.It absorbs quickly and it will not leave your hands sticky.It has a light scent.Very afordable too.(

I am a huge body scrub fan and lately I am loving this Fruttini Body Lotion and Scrub set in Cherry Vanilla.It smells great,the lotion is pretty moisturising,absorbs fast and the scrub does well the job of removing the dry,dead skin but it is pretty gentle.

Rimmel Stay Matte transparent pressed powder - do I even have to say anything about this product? Even I don't have oily skin and dont get a shiny face effect trough the day I like to mattify my foundation.I use it very lightly.Great product for a great price.

Favorite blush of the moment - Catrice Defining blush in ''Think Pink''. This was my first ever Catrice make up product,and I can sa I am pretty impressed with the quality.It has a decent pigmentation and lasting power.And I love the color :)

This is how it looks on my skin swatched.

And last but not least,the eye palette I have been using non stop since I got it for Christmas

Sleek ''Oh so Special'' palette,I use it every single day.Amazing quality,great price,you can do a totaly day to day super natural look or a dark,sexy sokey eye

And now one non beauty item,my favorite candle

Glade ''Sweet Home'' candle,it smells Amazing!To mme it has a perfume kind of scent,it can burn for a really long time,even if you are not burning the candle if you place it on a coffee table you will be able to smell its awesome warm scent :) Perfect for cozy winter nights at home:)

So those are some of my current favorites,I would love to know what are yours:)

Love and kisses:***

Go Pink or go home!

Hello ladies,hope you are having a great day:) My day started with rain,gray,gloomy weather(its raining so much these past few days its crazy,and I don't like it at all) ... but it instantly got a lot brighter when I saw this baby at the store:)A super bright,vibrant pink polish that was  screaming ''buy me,buy me'' :D So I did,and I couldn't wait to get home and paint my nails:)

This is 'Andreia' - Pocket line in number 108.(I belive this is a portuguese brand) Two coats and a top coat.

It has a purple undertone and it is sooo much more vibrant then on the pics,but there was no sun today and I couldn't wait for a sunny day to try this beauty:))

I love this shade of pink <3 A few other polish bottles came home with me too,so you will see those soon too:)

That is all for today,hope you like it:)

Great finds: ''Bellaoggi'' waterproof mascara and eye pencil

Hello my lovelies,happy Monday :) Today I want to share with you a new brand I descovered while I was visiting my family in Montenegro in November. It is an Italian brand called ''Bellaoggi''  and it is available at the drugstores.I have to admit,I have never heard about it before,but they had some proucts  on sale so I wanted to try it out. I bought a waterproof mascara called 'Volume alto' and eye pencil 'Linea occhi' in number 10 (dark brown).

Let's start with the mascara.First I really like the 'water drops' texture effect on the packaging,it shows they put some thought to it. You get a standard 0,33 fl oz or 10 ml of product.

This is the brush,standard size and bristles,it is not too big,and it is very easy to work with. It coats the lashes nice,doesn't clump and the most important (to me at least) doest make your lashes stiff and ''crispy'',wich is a big dealbraker for me when it comes to mascara.Since it is waterproof it holds the curl great. Doesn't flake or smudge.The formula is in between,it is not a wet but not too dry. I use it every single day an I would buy it again.
** I bought it on sale for around 2 euros

The eye pencil I chose randomly,I needed a brown one so I grabed the first one I saw,but after using it for almost 3 months I can say I really like it. It is very pigmented and soft,it glides on very smooth,no presure needed.

Now this is not a waterproof eye pencil so don't expect it to last the whole day,but it does have a deacent lasting power.I use it for a quick day to day make up,and I love to smudge it with a brush so it gets more subtile-smoked look.I would buy it again,but would also love to try other colors.
** The eye pencil was around 1,50.

Here is how mascara and the liner look together,for a simple day to day look

You can check out ''Bellaoggi'' brand here and see if it is available in your country.They have a lot of interesting products,the prices are reasonable and I regret I didn't buy more,since they are not available here in Portugal. I really want to try their eyeshadows,they seem to have some pretty interesting colors and palettes.

**Non sponsored,I bought the products myself

Have you ever tried this brand?

That is all for today,hope you liked it :)

Take me to Bali :)

Hello my lovelies,hope you are all well and having a great weekend:) Today I have a quick post just to show you a nail polish I bought a while ago but just forgot about it:))

CLICHE ''Bali'' is a pretty pastel peach,very subtile,almost nude.I have no idea why it took me so long to use it!

I changed the shape of my nails :) I was bored,so I 'spiked' my nails a bit:)

I think you will see some nail art and nail polish combos with ''Bali'' soon because I really like this color,the formula is good,just like all the polishes from this brand have.

That is all for today,hope you like it:)

Hair care Favorites

Hi my loves,hope you are all doing great:) Today I wanted to share with you my favorite hair products that help me maintain my hair long and healthy:)
First I want to say a few things about my hair.My hair's natural hair color is medium to light brown,it is a bit wavy and pretty dry,was always dry even before I started coloring it a long time ago.For the past year and a half I bleached it and colored it till I got the almost platinum blonde shade I wanted.I don't wash my hair every day because that would dry it out even more and honestly,it would be a pain to style it :) I don't wear hair extensions,never have.

So here are my hair care favorites I have been using for a while now and that work well with my hair.

This is 'KEUNE' Platinum Blonde cool blonde shades shampoo,or a purple shampoo.It helps keep the yellow,brassy tones away and maintain the pretty platinum blonde.

I am using this shampoo for a few months now,and I really like it.I feel it is very gentle to the hair,wich is important if your is bleached and colored,and I noticed a big difference from when I first started using it.I use it every time I wash my hair,leave it in for 2-3 minutes and rince it off. I use it after my normal shampoo for colored hair,which I swich every time and don't have a favorite.

It is very afordable,think I payed around 6 euros for it and that is a big plus:)

Schwarzkopf GLISS 'Ultimate Repair Conditioner' (for very damaged,dry hair) - First of all this conditioner smells great,just like most of the Schwarzkopf GLISS products. I use it after my purple shampoo,on all the lenght of the hair,just avoiding the scalp,leave it for a minute or so and rince well.It makes my hair  feel soft and I think it helps with detangle it. You can find this at any drugstore.

One more product from the Shwarzkopf GLISS line.My favorite hair mask,or deep conditioner if you want. This one is Shea Cashmere intensive nourishing treatment for dry,drained hair. I also use this every single time when I wash my hair,it says it is a 1 minute mask but I usualy leave it on for about 5 minutes or so because bleached hair needs all the moisture and nourishing it can get.Smells amazing,the hair feels super soft,it helps with combing it out and keeps it tangle free.Also can be found at any drugstore.

After my hair is washed and I let it towel dry a bit,I use Avon's Moroccan Argan oil Leave-in treatement.I am in LOVE with this from the very first time I used it a few months ago when it came out in their catalogue.

It says it is meant for all hair types but I feel like it works best with dry hair,since it is an oil.It has a nice lil pump so you can control how much product you want.I use between 2 and 3 pumps,and spread it evenly just avoiding the scalp.Hair is left soft,even dry split ends can look much healthier (even the only real cure for those you trim them).It helps a lot with blowdrying,as I feel I don't need to put that much effort in it.
If you are looking to try a good argan oil but don't want to spend a ton of money on higher end ones,I really recommend you try this one.It is a product that does what it says,and you can always find it on some kind of a sale since Avon always have sales and promotions.

TRESemme heat protectant with UV filter,very important step of the hair routine reagardless of your hair type.I use it every time I blowdry or curl my hair with a curling iron.I spray it on before blowdrying on a still damp hair.Less frizz,less effort to style my hair and I think it really helps with keeping it as healthy as it can be.Now I don't use curling or straightnening iron very often,just every once in a while,but I blowdry my hair straight with a big rund brush a hair dryer.
Hope this was helpful:)

These are my hair care favorites,how about you?What are yours?

Love and kisses:***
