Sorry for making this a little later in the month, I’ve just been building this site and needed the time to write down my thoughts regarding these products. My apologies for not having my own images of these products nor any swatches, I really just wanted to have this posted already and not wait any longer, otherwise we’d already be in July and I still hadn’t written down the favorites. I promise I will do it next time..
But here they are, let me know what you think and if I have missed some products in the comments.
Maybelline Color Vivids: Fuschia Flash and Shocking Coral
I got these early in the month. I honestly cannot tell which one is my favorite since I love both of them! The only minus I have is that they are quite dry, or maybe my lips aren’t used to it being that they dry out rather easily in the first place. I usually either add a little bit of lipgloss or even just plain lipbalm.
I normally only wear lipgloss but with these I’ve finally joined the bandwagon of getting back to the good ol’ lipstick. I will be extending my lipstick collection these coming months. I already have some awesome lipsticks lined up for purchase, and I plan to do reviews of them. So stay tuned!
Urban Decay Naked 2 palette
This palette has been coming back over and over again, so I had to get it as well! I normally just get whatever I find I like, in fact I try to go out of the norm. However, this time I wanted to get this. The very first time I got to put it on, I was so impressed how easily the pigment stays on my eyes, how smooth the product is. I really love this and now I couldn’t live without it! I absolutely love the brush it comes with, so smooth and easy to work with. The only minus point it has, is that it’s inconvenient to put it in your purse due to its size. Should I get Naked Basics?
Maybelline Instant Age Rewinder Eye Concealer in light
This was another raved product amongst the Youtube vloggers I follow. This is a good basic drugstore concealer. It doesn’t smell weird, it’s alright to put under your eyes and blend in with your powder. It’s just one of those necessary basics you should have in your collection. Just be careful you don’t apply too much of it.
Lush Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter
I’ve had this for a very long time now, and I’m almost running out of it. I absolutely love Lush products, they are always so yummy smelling and very nice products to have. I cannot use some of their products as my skin is too sensitive but this hand cream is a must-have. If you don’t know Lush, you really should find the closest store near to you and try it out!
Lee Stafford – Moroccan oil
I got this for my endings as they are always so dry. This is an okay product, however I wouldn’t repurchase it because I don’t feel it really adds all that much to my hair. My hair seems to be just as dry. Applying feels a little weird, and it doesn’t smell too good. I would have expected a lot more from this brand to be honest as I really love the heat protector!
Hello, and welcome to
this my new blog about beauty. I will be sharing some of my thoughts about the products I use, fill you in with the latest discoveries.. and who knows what else. I thank you for stopping by, and hope that you will join me on this journey.
I have always been interested about beauty, well makeup to be specific. I started putting makeup on when I was around 12, I think. Mind you, my eyes looked more like ones of a raccoon. I looked hideous, and was wondering how “adults” get it right. I went to school looking like that once, I felt I am tough on the inside but I looked ridiculous. After that, I practiced and practiced and practiced in the privacy of my own room, carefully locked it in case my parents decided to see what I was up to. I took it off immediately after, or just hid in my room until I did. My hair hasn’t seen its original color for ten years, well only once as a dare. I have the loveliest Finnish genes, that my hair doesn’t really have a color.
As a teenager, I used to have a big collection of makeup and nailpolish. My mom even got me a travel set of Clinique makeup remover, at that time I didn’t really care for it.. I would take that moment back in a jiffy! When I moved out from home, I didn’t have as big collection anymore. My skin started acting up and as a student, didn’t really have a lot of money. I’ve only been holding on for some drugstore basics. Until recently, when I found Youtube beauty community, and started realizing how much I’ve been missing out! I am currently upgrading my products from drugstore to high end. I welcome you to join me to this journey, and hope you’ll stay with me even through the bumpy ride.
