Malinka makeup products Review

Hi loves, today I wanted to talk about some beauty products of a small (for now) Italian makeup & beauty brand: Malinka. They also have a skin, body and hair line and not just makeup. I was in the mall here in Bulgaria & I saw this small makeup store and I then discovered it was actually Italian! I immediately wanted to try something out. If I’m not mistaking all of their products are also hypoallergenic. You already know I’m not into long reviews, so let me just get to the point :)

Ciao care, oggi voglio parlarvi dei prodotti di una marca italiana: Malinka. Oltre i trucchi hanno anche la linea viso, corpo e capelli. La cosa divertente è che li ho scoperti qua in Bulgaria, ho trovato un negozietto nel centro commerciale ed ho voluto subito provare qualcosa. Se non sbaglio tutti loro prodotti sono anche ipoallergenici. Ormai lo sapete già che non mi piacciono le recensioni lunghe perciò andiamo subito al dunque :)

Compact Powder Silk Effect/Cipria Compatta Effetto Seta

The first thing I tried was this powder in shade 02. As you can see from the photo below I’m gonna finish it soon. It has been a good powder, it holds my makeup in place, doesn’t look cakey and feels light on my skin.

Questa cipria è la prima cosa che ho comprato da loro, nella tonalità 02. Come potete vedere dalla foto qui sotto, la sto quasi finendo. Posso dirvi che fa il suo lavoro e fissa bene la base, non fa l’effetto “cakey” ed è leggera sul viso.

Eyes Pencil/Matitone occhi

This one my hubs picked up for me, I told him the shade to get according to the website. It is totally different from what you see on the website. On the website it looks creamy non shimmery shade, but in reality it’s an icy shimmer. So I wouldn’t recommend buying from the website for now cause the colors look completely different in real. The pencil itself is very soft and easy to blend.

Questa matitona l’ha preso mio marito dal negozio dopo che gli ho detto quale numero prendere guardando il sito. Sul sito sembra un bianco crema non shimmer, ma in realtà è un bianco ghiacciato shimmer. Quindi non consiglierei ordinare dal sito per il momento. La matita in sé è molto morbida e facile da sfumare.

Compact Eyeshadow Duo/Ombretto Compatto Duo

This is my favorite from all of the four things. I’m a sucker for pinkish shimmery shades when it comes to eyeshadows so this is right down my alley. The colors have a good pigmentation, a little powdery but nothing too bad. And they blend very nicely.

Questo è il mio preferito tra questi prodotti. Amo tutti ombretti shimmer sulla tonalità di rosa, quindi questo fa proprio il mio caso. I colori hanno una buona pigmentazione, sono leggermente polverosi ma non tanto. E si sfumano con molta facilità.

Lip Pencil/Matita Labbra

What I like about this shade is that it looks nice on every skin tone, warm and cold, pale and bronze :) The pencil is very soft and glides on easily, it’s slightly sheer and more natural looking. I would say it works best paired with a lipstick.

Quello che mi piace di questa tonalità è che sta bene con tutti sottotoni e tonalità della pelle, freddo e caldo, chiara e abbronzata :) La matita è molto morbida e si applica con facilità, è leggermente trasparente e l’effetto rimane abbastanza naturale. Direi che rende al meglio abbinata con un rossetto.

Here’s a look I did using these products. I used the white eye pencil in the inner corners and blended it under my brow bone. I think I don’t need to specify where I used the eyeshadows and lipliner :P And you can also see the powder leaves a nice matte finish.

Ecco un trucco creato con questi prodotti. Il matitone bianco l’ho usato negli angoli interni dell’occhio e l’ho sfumato sotto l’arcata delle sopracciglia. Penso che non serve precisare dove ho usato gli ombretti e la matita labbra :P Potete anche vedere che la cipria lascia un bel effetto matt.

And this concludes my review, I hope you liked it. Have you tried anything from Malinka? Would you like to in the future?

E questo conclude la mia recensione, spero vi è piaciuto. Avete provato qualcosa della Malinka? Vorreste provare qualcosa in futuro?

My go-to makeup products | 2017 Spring-Summer

Hi :) I hope everyone had a lovely weekend! Since I am currently so into simple & natural looking makeup I thought I’d show you the products I use for most of my everyday looks.

Ciao :) Spero avete passato un bel weekend! Visto che al momento preferisco trucchi semplici e naturali, ho pensato di farvi vedere i prodotti che uso per maggioranza di trucchi da giorno.

bioten cc cream light

I have a review on this, I was actually thinking about revisiting the review since I’ve been using it for a longer time. Anyway, it’s lovely: it has a light to medium coverage, leaves a glowy dewy finish and it has spf. It’s really easy to apply and looks very natural.

Di questo ho anche la recensione, stavo pensando di rivistarla visto che ora la uso da più tempo. Ha la coperenza leggera media, ha il finish luminoso ed ha la spf, è anche facile da applicare  e sembra molto naturale.

catrice camouflage cream 010 Ivory

It’s very covering and not quite lightweigh, but this mama needs to cover the tiredness! While the rest of my face can get away with light coverage, my under eye area does not.

È molto coprente, non proprio leggero, ma questa mamma deve coprire tutta quella stanchezza! Mentre il resto del mio viso se la cava con la coprenza leggera, l’area sotto gli occhi no.

Golden Rose Silky Touch compact oper 04

I love this powder! I fell in love with it on first use. It’s so silky, keeps everything in place and not too “powdery”.

Adoro questa cipria! Mi sono innamorata al primo uso. È davvero  setoso, tiene il la base al suo posto e non è troppo polverosa.

essence make me brow eyebrow gel mascara

I reviewed this already and since then I’ve started to like it even more. It saves me a lot of time, I just pop this on my brows real quick and I’m ready to go.

L’ho recensito ultimamente e da allora mi piace ancora di più. Risparmia un bel po’ di tempo, te lo passi sulle sopracciglia veloce ed è fatto.

Aura Absolute Matte Long Lasting Lip Cream 624 Last Goodbye & 613 Good Vibes

Looooove these! Such a great quality for a small price! Great lasting power, don’t dry out my lips too much and these two colors are great for everyday wear. I’ll put some links of the looks with them ↓

1 – 2 – 3 – 4 – 5

Metto qua sopra qualche link di trucchi dove ho usato questi rossetti liquidi ↑ Li adoroooo! Ottima qualità per prezzo piccolo! Non seccano troppo le labbra e i colori sono perfetti per trucchi di tutti giorni.

esssence I ♥ extreme crazy volume mascara

I have a review on this mascara, although I should really replace the photos (at the time I couldn’t use my camera & took crappy photos with my old phone). Anyway, I personally like this mascara, it gives me great volume and length. It does start to crumble at the end of the day, but I never stay out that long so it doesn’t matter to me.

Ho la recensione anche su questo prodotto, anche se dovrei davvero rifare le foto (a quel tempo non potevo usare la mia fotocamera e ho fatto le foto di merda con il mio vecchio telefono). Comunque, a me personalmente piace molto questo mascara, mi dà tanto volume e lunghezza. Alla fine della giornata comincia a sbriciolare un po’, ma io non sto mai fuori così tanto, quindi non mi dà fastidio.

Makeup Revolution blush Sugar

This shade is perfect for natural looks, actually it’s perfect for every look. I wear this blush 90% of the time. It has a great lasting power & pigmentation as well.

Questa tonalità è perfetta per i look nturali (a dire il vero è perfetta per qualsiasi look). Indosso questo blush 90% delle volte, ha un’ottima durata e pigmentazione.

Aura highlighter 20 Moonlight glorious cheeks

Very pigmented & longlasting and obviously very pretty. It’s very icy so I’m gonna have to switch it for something warmer for the summer, but I’ve been absolutely loving it. Bonus: it smells so sweet and lovely :)

Molto pigmentato e buona durata e ovviamente molto bello. È un colore champagna ghiacciato, dovrò ormai cambiarlo per una tonaità più calda per l’estate, ma finora l’ho assolutamente adorato. Bonus: ha un buon profumo dolce :)

That is it for this post, I hope you enjyed it. Let me know which products are u’re go-to products for a simple makeup. And have you tried or want to try any of the mentioned products? See ya soon :*

Questo è tutto per il post di oggi, spero vi è piaciuto. Fatemi sapere quali sono vostri prodotti più usati per un trucco semplice. E se avete provato o volete provare qualche prodotto menzionato in questo post? A presto :*

Tag: Lipstick Crazy |Malata Di Rossetti

Thanks Noemi for tagging me to do this tag about lipsticks :)

Ringrazio Noemi per avermi taggata per fare questo tag su rossetti :)

What’s your favorite lip treatment?

None. I don’t do treatments like lip scrubs or masks (I barely do them for the rest of my body), I just pass the toothbrush on my lips and that’s it.

Qual è il tuo trattamento labbra preferito?

Nessuno. Non faccio trattamenti tipo scrub e maschere alle labbra (li faccio a malpena anche per il resto del corpo), passo solo lo spazzolino sulle labbra e basta.

Which red strikes you the most?

I don’t like classic red lipsticks, at least not on me. So I’d say a nice berry red, like KIKO Jelly Core Lipstick 05 Rasperry Kiss (that I used here)

IMG_0478

Qual è il rosso che colpisce di più?

I rossetti rossi classici non mi piacciono, almeno non su di me. Quindi direi un bel rosso bacca, tipo KIKO Jelly Core Lipstick 05 Rasperry Kiss (che ho usato qui).

Which one is the best high end product? And low cost?

I don’t have any high end products. But the low cost has to be essence lipliners, I only have three colors: 12 wish me a rose (used here), 05 soft berry (used here) and 06 satin muave (used here)

IMG_0481

Qual è il miglior prodotto di lusso? E quello low cost?

Non ho e non compro di prodotti di lusso. Quelli low cost devono essere le matite labbra di essence, ne ho solo tre colori: 12 wish me a rose (usato qui), 05 soft berry (usato qui) e 06 satin muave (usato qui)

Which lipstick was the most disappointing?

There isn’t a lipstick, that scarred me, but I expected a full color from Makeup Revolution Atomic lipstick Make Me Tonight not a sheer one. The thing is I really wanted a nice dark lipstick, so that’s why I was disappointed (used here). Mine looks a little yucky, cause it got really soft with warm weather, I tried to apply it and it broke.

IMG_0486

Qual è il rossetto che ti ha deluso di più?

Non c’è un rossetto, che mi abbia lasciato un segno, ma dal  Atomic lipstick Make Me Tonight di Makeup Revolution mi aspettavo un colore pieno e non trasparente. Visto che volevo tanto un bel rossetto scuro sono rimasta delusa (usato qui). Il mio è così brutto perché con il caldo è diventato molto morbido e quando l’ho applicato si è spezzato.

Lipliners yes or no?

Yessssss! At first I wasn’t too fond of lipliners, but now I prefer them to lipsticks.

Matita labbra si o no?

Siiiiiiiii! All’inizio non ne ero entusiasta, ma ora preferisco le matite anche ai rossetti.

Which one is your favorite lip gloss?

At the moment my favorite gloss is the essence xxxl nude lipgloss 06 soft almond (used here), but all the xxxl glosses (both shine and nude) by essence are great!

IMG_0483

Qual è il tuo gloss preferito? 

Il mio gloss preferito del momento è essence xxxl nude lipgloss 06 soft almond (usato qui), ma tutti i gloss xxxl (shine e nude) della essence sono ottimi!

An extra?

I love Makeup Revolutions Lip Lavas. They are so creamy and smooth on the lips ♥ For now I only have Tremor (used here) and Forgiven (used here) at the moment.

IMG_0484

Un extra? 

Adoro i Lip Lava di Makeup Revolution. Sono così cremosi e facili d’applicare ♥ Al momento ho solo Tremor (usato qui) e Forgiven (usato qui)

↓ Swatches ↓

KIKO Jelly Core Lipstick 05 Rasperry Kiss, essence lipliner 06 satin muave, essence lipliner 12 wish me a rose, essence lipliner 05 soft berry, essence xxxl nude lipgloss 06 soft almond, essence xxxl shine lipgloss 29 cute pink, essence xxxl shine lipgloss 07 Big NIght Out, essence xxxl shine lipgloss 03 Timeless Beauty, Makeup Revolution Atomic lipstick Make Me Tonight, Makeup Revolution Lip Lava Tremor, Makeup Revolution Lip Lava Forgiven

Makeup Revolution – Amzing Lipsticks

Hello little birdies, how are you doing? I recently got some stuff from Makeup Revolution, I made a quick haul too, but I ‘ve only reviewed one palette since. I got 10 lippies in total and four of them were Amazing Lipsticks, which I want to talk about today.  They only cost £1 and the quality you get is pretty good!

Ciao topoline, come state? Recentemente ho fatto un ordine da Makeup Revolution, ho fatto anche un piccolo post di miei acquisti, ma finora ho recensito solo una paletteHo preso 10 prodotti per labbra in tutto, di qui quattro sono gli Amazing Lipsticks di cui parlerò oggi. Costano solo £1 e la qualità è buona! 

First here are the swatches on my hand so you can see the “real” color, cause colors can look different on different people.. Also they have a lovely sweet scent to them.

Per prima cosa gli swatch sul braccio, così vedete il “vero” colore perchè ovviamente su ogniuno i colori sono diversi. Ed hanno anche un profumo dolce e delicato.

lips swatch

The One is a beautiful light nude shade, it’s creamy and pigmented.

The One è un bellissimo nude, è cremoso e pigmetato.

lips the one
The One

Twist is a nice bright coral red. I wanted a more orange color, I should’ve got Vice, but it’s still a pretty pretty red. It’s pigmented and creamy, but a little harder when you apply it. Not so hard that you would have to work hard to get it on, but just so you now that you need to put more pressure while applying.

Twist è un rosso corallo acceso. Volevo una tonalità più arancione, avrei dovuto prendere Vice, ma è comunque un bel rosso. È pigemntato e cremoso, ma un po’ più duro degli altri. Non è che devi sudare mettendolo, ma devi applicare un po’ più pressione con questo rossetto. 

lips twist
Twist

Reckless is probably my favorite of them (please excuse my crappy applying, I am seriously ashamed of myself, but too lazy to re do it). It’s such a beautiful deep red, it makes me think of the 20’s and 30’s glam. Very very creamy, but your lips need to be smooth and not chapped for a perfect result.

Reckless è probabilmente mio preferito tra questi (scusate l’applicazione di ehmmm cacca, mi vergogno ma sono troppo pigra per rifarlo). È un bellissimo rosso scuro, mi fa pensare al glam di anni 20 e 30. Molto molto cremoso e bisogna avere le labbra impeccabili per un risultato uniforme, niente labbra screpolate.

lips reckless
Reckless

Fusion is the one I’m most disappointed in, it’s creamy, easy to apply and a nice color but I expected it to be a lot darker. If you at the swatch on their website you see that it’s a deep red wine color. I really wanted that color so that’s why I was very disappointed. But if you are looking for a shade like this one below, then go ahead.

Fusion è quello, che mi ha deluso più di altri, solo perchè me lo aspettavo molto più scuro. Lo swatch sul sito sembra un rosso vino scuro, volevo tanto quel colore perciò sono delusa. Ma per il resto è un buon rossetto come gli altri – cremoso e un bel colore.

lips fusion
Fusion

 I only tested Reckless to see how long it stays on. It stayed on nicely for 4 hours and then I had lunch. I had pizza so I kept wiping away my lipstick between bites, so I think if I had eaten something simple like pasta it would’ve stayed on. . When I was swatching these I had hard time getting them off my lips and had to use a makeup remover. So I would say they have a pretty good lasting power as well.

Per la durata ho testato solo Reckless. È rimasto bello per 4 ore e poi ho pranzato. Ho mangiato pizza quindi continuavo a pulirmi la bocca e ho tolto tutto il rossetto, quindi penso che mangiando qualcosa tipo pasta, il rossetto avrebbe durato ancora… Gli altri non ho testato ma quando li swatchavo, dovevo usare lo struccante per toglierli dalle mie labbra. Perciò direi che sono a posto come durata :)

Have a great weekend!

Buon Weekend!

Makeup Revolution, Disappear To The Beyond palette

Hello darlings and happy new week! Today I want to talk about this little fella, that really surprised me! I didn’t have any expectations and I wasn’t planning to do a review about it, but as soon as I tried it I knew I had to share this little gem!

Ciao care e buona settimana nuova! Oggi voglio parlarvi di questa piccoletta, che mi ha sorpresa. Non avevo nessuna aspettativa e non pensavo di fare la recensione, ma appena l’ho provata sapevo di dover condividere questa piccola gemma.

beyond

Aren’t these shimmery colors just gorgeous!? And the texture is almost creamy! So easy to blend and build up!

Non sono bellissimi questi colori shimmer!? E la consistenza è quasi cremosa, molto facile da sfumare ed avere un colore bello pieno!

beyond3

Here are the darker colors of the palette, also well pigmented.

Anche i colori più scuri della palette hanno una bella pigmentazione.

beyond4

Here are the two whites, that look alike when you look at the palette, but as you swatch them you’ll see, that one has a golden shimmer and the other has a pink shimmer to it :)

Qui ci sono i due bianchi,  che possono sembrare uguali quando li guardi nella palette, ma swatchandoli si vede, che uno ha lo shimmer dorato e altro shimmer rosa :)

beyond5

 There is one lighter matte brown that I didn’t swatch, but it’s all good. That’s it, I just wanted to let you know about this little palette, it’s also very affordable plus it’s on sale at the moment (Last Chance To Buy), for how long more I can’t say.

C’è anche un marrone più chiaro che non ho swatchato, ma va bene così. Questo è tutto, volevo semplicemente farvi sapere di questa palettina, è molto economica ed è anche in offerta al momento (Last Chance To Buy), per quanto ancora non lo so dire.

1

I wanted to do a post with this look, but the colors don’t look half as good as they did in real :(  I used the two last colors from the left side.  It was so vibrant and pretty in real, stupid camera!

Volevo fare un post su questo look, ma i colori non sono belle neanche metà di come erano in realtà :( Ho usato i due ultimi colori dal lato sinistra. Era così bello ed intenso dal vivo, stupida fotocamera!

Take care loves,

Statemi bene care,

Mammu

My First Makeup Revolution Order

Hello darlings, few weeks ago I placed my first ever Makeup Revolution order. It arrived in about a week (I made the order on a Friday and got my package on a Monday). I will talk more in depth about these products in the future, but I just wanted to share quickly what I got ^.^ And again, I need to apologize for the photos. As I said my camera is slowly dying… :( But let’s jump into it :)

Pro Looks Palette – Stripped & Bare

So this beautiful palette was actually FREE with the order! How awesome huh? It’s so beautiful and romantic with soft shades. You can create so many daytime looks with it, but also use for stronger evening looks.

3

New-Trals vs Neutrals

 I was so exited for this palette, that for all week I went online every day to look pictures, makeup looks and videos about it! I even mentally prepared all the looks I wanted to do with this palette! Look at all the amazing colors this palette has! And it’s the perfect fall palette! I am head over heels for this palette and I can’t wait to start creating looks with it. I’ll  do a whole week of looks with only this palette, starting Monday ♥

Awesome Eyeshadow Palette Disappear To The Beyond

This one is pretty similar to the first palette in colors, I didn’t plan it that way, but since the other one was free… :) It’s a cute little palette to have with you in your purse, it doesn’t take much space and has all the colors you need for your daytime makeup.

Review: alverde Cream to Powder concealer

alverde1

Hello and Happy Monday lovlies! I’m finally here with this review, I’ve been wanting to do it for the longest time. I think it’s important to share about good cruelty-free and vegan products. When you first make a decision to stop using products tested on animals or go with fully vegan makeup, it can be very hard to find products. Fortunately more and more brands are giving up animal testing, and that is just great news. Of course to find all vegan makeup and beauty products is a little harder.  You just need to do your research, dig around and soon you will know what and where :) Alverde is a great brand to start with (if you can find it where you live). I’m not happy with all it’s products (read Review: Alverde False Lashes mascara), but I keep trying things out and let you know, what is worth buying and what is not :)

A product line based primarily on plant materials, is the best-selling, Certified Natural Cosmetics brand in Germany. Product ingredients are chosen to give skin naturally effective care. Alverde raw materials come mainly from organically grown sources. Products are free from mineral oil-based ingredients, synthetic fragrances, colors or preservatives. Most Alverde Natural Cosmetic products carry the Vegan label, guaranteeing that no animal ingredients are included and that no animal testing is carried out. They use development and manufacturing processes which protect the earth’s resources.

alverde3

Ingredients: Helianthus Annuus Hybrid Oil*, Silica, Magnesium Silicate, Euphorbia Cerifera Cera, Simmondsia Chinensis Seed Oil*, Coco-Caprylate, Rhus Verniciflua Peel Cera, Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil, Tricaprylin, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis Oil, Cera Alba, Lycium Barbarum Fruit Extract*, Tocopherol, Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil*, Hydrogenated Palm Glycerides Citrate, Parfum**, Limonene**, Linalool**, Citronellol**, Geraniol**, CI 77891, CI 77492, CI 77491 *ingredients from certified organic agriculture, **from natural essential oils

alverde2

So the color is natural beige, but it’s actually more of a pale pinkish tone. So if you are very pale and have a pinkish undertone – great, this concealer is right up your alley. As you can see I’m more yellow toned, but I make it work :) I read somewhere, that Cream to Powder means, that it’s supposed to become powdery after a while and someone was very disappointed, that it didn’t. Well, I had no idea, so I wasn’t disappointed and I’m happy with it, the way it is. The consistency is creamy, but a little sticky so it needs a little work to blend well, but nothing impossible.

alverde4

It’s not covering enough for dark under eyes like mine, but it smooths out and covers smaller imperfections and brightens up the under eye area. I took the pictures to show you the coverage, but when I do my makeup I put a more orange toned concealer first to cover up my dark under eyes and then I either put this on top right after of I put this after my concealer.  And it works great for me this way.

alverde5

Soooo, yeah I hope this was helpful. If you were looking for a crap-free concealer with not too much coverage, then I recommend this one for you :) Have you tried Cream to Powder concealer or other alverde makeup products? Do you have any cruelty-free (or vegan) concealer recommendations?

Take care,

Mammu

August’15 Favorites

fave1

Time for favorites! There are some things that you have already seen on my blog, but let’s be real, most people don’t have new things and new favorites every month! My first favorite is this cute peplum top you saw in my latest outfit post OOTD #26 – Aqua Peplum. I’m now officially in love with peplums, I’m very late on this trend, but that’s just how I roll :D I’m always late on trends, I tend to be very mistrusting of trends and when I’m finally ready to give it a try, everyone is already over it lol

fave2

Bottega Verde Age Sublime smoothing-antiage day face cream for luminous and radiant skin with PGG 5 and Red Maple, SPF 15. Bottega Verde is a green italian brand and I used to buy a lot of stuff from them, when living in Italy. I got this little sample with one of my orders. I didn’t like it at all before and now I really like it, I must of got old inbetween that now this age cream suits my skin :P It’s nice for summer since it has SPF. In the past it broke me out, but now I mainly only put it on the dry parts of my face (under my eyes, my nose) and it works great for me.

Kiko nail lacquer 336 Electric Blue I think it’s a great fun summer color. I mostly wore it on my toenails and I think it looked great. On my finger nails I only wore it once, simpy cause I don’t like to wear nail polish, but this color is stunning.

fave3

Kiko Pencil Lip Gloss 06 Pink Glitter I almost left this baby out, even though this is probably the most used lip product of the month. Usually I don’t like it too much on me, but I think it looks better when I’m tanned since it has golden glitter in it. Here’s look where I used it MOTD #38 – Kiko kajal 110 Turchese I know I don’t look tanned at all, but I swear it’s the photocamera that totally washes out any color from my face!

I found another yummy healthy drink yayyy Too bad healthy things cost a fortune :( It’s a white jasmine tea with niacin, biotin, vitamin b6 and b12 and no preservatives.

bh cosmetics Day & Night eyeshadow palette I was so happy to get back my palettes at the end of July, I’ve been using mostly this lovely palette and these four shades are my most used right now.

Haul: Lilly | Denzel

Hello Hello my sweet butterflies! I got a chance to do some shopping yayyy. I’m all about that simple life and nature and stuff, but I’m still a young woman and therefore I like to buy stuff :D Yes to spirituality, to minimalistic lifestyle, to stepping out of the ego, to going back to your roots, to embracing natural beauty, to saying no to consumerism. But the most important part is to not feel guilty, when you do like to enjoy what the 3D world has to offer. Guilt only brings bad energy to you and actually creates the energy that you are guilty of something. We are allowed to enjoy also the material side of the life, no need to feel guilty for that :)

haul3

bioten eye makeup remover I actually wanted to get a different makeup remover to try, cause I didn’t like it that much, but I couldn’t find anything and I was too lazy to go to another store

Velnea Anti Cellulite Ivy Gel I usually don’t buy these products, cause I never believe in them, but this one caught my eye and I though what the heck and went and got it

Bilka Shampoo against dry dandruff I’m almost out of my Velnea anti-dandruff shampoo so I wanted to try another one. The Velnea one definitely helped me with itchiness, but not so much with dandruff

ecotools Eye Enhancing Duo Set Finally some new brushes for me! I swear it is so hard to find eyeshadow brushes in regular drugstores here! How cute is this little set and it’s all made from bamboo and recycled materials. Blend – Define – Smudge – Shade

All the previous stuff was from a drugstore chain called Lilly and this stuff is now from a Chinese chain store Denzel. Yes yes I know how unsafe made in China is, but I’m stupid enough to still fall for it…..

 Can you believe, that I have never used sponges in my makeup!? I think I tried once and was like nope. That was probably cause I didn’t know how, but since then I have watched plenty of youtube tutorials, so everything should be fine…right?

As you can see I am preparing for the fall. I needed some new pants cause instead of getting thinner during the summer like normal people, my butt decided to start growing :( Actually I don’t even mind, I kinda like it that way to be honest ;)

 


 

In the evening I made a quick trip to dm, cause I forgot hairspray and concealer. I got Wella wellaflex long lasting flexible hold Instant Volume Boost Mousse and as I am reading the packaging I read mousse instead of hairspray *crying* I looked so many times to not to get mousse by accident! Whyyyyyyyyyy!? For concealer I decided to try alverde cream to  powder concealer 20 natural beige

 

If you’re interested in a product and want me to start trying out something right away for a review, please let me know in the comments <3 Are you starting to prepare for fall already? It’s still quite hot during the day, but the air has already changes here. You can smell the autumn and nights are getting cold! Take care butterflies and talk to you soon!
