I’ve tried a few e.l.f products before but haven’t really gone back and got some more after that. The products I tried weren’t bad but obviously they weren’t great either. So when a friend, who likes makeup a lot, told me I had to try these three products I made the order right away. They just arrived a few days ago and I’ve only tried them twice but I must say, so far, I’m impressed! Especially by the mascara. I’ve been using the L’Oreal Miss Manga mascara for years and it will always be my go-to but this one does what it says it’s supposed to. Because I’m used to the brush of the L’Oreal mascara this one was a bit tricky to use for me but it did make my lashes a bit longer and definitely did curl them. I’ll keep it in my makeup bag as a backup.
Do you have any holy grail products that I should try?
Ladies, I’m here to rave about a product that I’ve fallen in love with.
Only a few days ago I received a Lumene CC Cream as a gift with purchase. Lumene is a brand I’m familiar with, I’ve used their foundation before. If I’m not mistaken it is a Finish brand. But, I had never tried a CC Cream before. I was gonna get the Vichy BB cream because I heard AsciaAKF rave about it on Snapchat and because I’m familiar with BB Creams. But since I tried the Lumene CC Cream I’m hooked. I don’t like a full coverage foundation nor do I really need it therefore I tend to like the light and water-based ones with a naked finish. I’m all about the natural no makeup, makeup look. That’s why a BB or CC cream suits me just fine. I only wear a full coverage foundation if I’m going to special function, like a wedding. All other times I’m fine with something much more light.
After trying this Lumene one, I don’t think I need any other BB or CC Cream because this one does it all for me. Although I would like to try the Vichy BB Cream just to see if it’s worth the hype. But, that’s gonna have to wait, I’ve just upgraded bits and pieces of my makeup, including foundation.
Let me know if you’ve tried the Vichy BB cream, I wanna know what you think!
A few days ago I wrote THIS post about the Balm and also asking for tips on a bronzer. Someone suggested I try the Bahama mama bronzer from the Balm.
Of course, I had to pick it up. Because just as I mentioned I dropped my Laguna bronzer from Nars and it broke.
I only got the bronzer yesterday so today is my first time using it and I like it. On the first try it’s not as good as Laguna but it’s still good. I feel that the Bahama mama is a bit darker.
I was also on the hunt for a good highlighter, mostly in a contour palette but since I’ve heard a lot about the Mary-Lou Manizer highlighter also from The Balm I got that as well.
Since I was only going to the office today I didn’t need any highlighter I didn’t use it but I will this weekend and I’ll let you know what I think!
A girl named Sanna, from Lyko.se, a swedish beauty online store, contacted me to send me makeup from a brand I’ve never heard of before. It’s called MIYO and it’s a swedish brand founded in 2012.
Like I mentioned I had never heard of the brand before so of course I had to google it. Didn’t find much on it at all. Only a Facebook page and that MIYO stands for; My Identity, Yourfully Original.
As it is Christmas Eve and we are going to a party tonight I will try all the products and will let you know what I think of it in a post in the new few days.
Merry Christmas everyone. I hope you’re all with your loved ones this holiday season.
I usually only post about products I actually like and would recommend for you. But, this time I have to warn you about a product I was really excited about. It’s a Max Factor Colour Elixir Lip Liner. I got it while I was away because I had forgotten my favorite lip liner, a Rimmel one that is now discontinued. I was actually looking for a similar one color-wise and this was the closest one to it, that’s why I got it. I was hoping it would be a good alternative to my Rimmel lip liner.
Oh boy was I disappointed. First, the tip broke the first time I was applying it and then, I couldn’t sharpen it. In the end I was able to do so but the liner itself keeps breaking. I think the reason for that it that it feels very dry. Also, the color was much more an orange tone than pink. It looks like it might be a nude pink color that matches the skin but I couldn’t really match it to my skin at all, even if i rubbed it a little.
So, this i a product that really isn’t worth getting. Spend your money on something else.
Has anyone of you tried it, what do you think?
I picked up this Bourjois compact powder about 10 days ago and I already feel like it’s gonna be a must have for me in the months to come. The description of it got me;
THE SILK EDITION POWDER BLURS IMPERFECTIONS & MATTIFIES THE SKIN FOR A FLAWLESS FINISH.
Sounds good, doesn’t it?
Well let me tell you that it actually does that for me. I do use it over my liquid foundation to se it and remove the moist feeling. I can truly recommend this for everyone looking for a compact that looks natural. If you want something that covers more this isn’t for you. I for example, who does get red patches every now and then couldn’t use it as the base on my face.
The packaging is super cool
Let me know if you’ve tried it and what you think…!
I also picked up this Bourjois nail polish while in Sarajevo! As many of you know I’m obsessed with burgundy for fall and this color, Cherry d’Amour, is perfect. One coat is ok but two coats gives it an extra burgundy pop. I’ve been wearing it for three days now, and it still hasn’t chipped.
Check it out!!!
While on a cruise to Finland with my sister and best friend I picked up a Dior eyeliner, the Diorshow Pro Liner in the color Pro Brown. I’m not very good at applying liner. I know some of you ladies might recognize yourself in that statement. So, as my friend and I were choosing a color we both went for the brown one as it looked a bit more natural. I use this line on both my upper lid and my lower lash line and it works good for me. It does smudge a little but I don’t mind because all it does is look more natural as there is no harsh line.
What is your favorite liner ladies?
One of my favorite makeup brands IsaDora launched a new foundation a few weeks ago. I picked it up within days and I’ve used it a lot since. I’ve seen some promotion for it where they promote it as a touch up product and it’s exactly what it is. I do have to touch it up throughout the day but I don’t mind it, because it’s really easy to do.

And ladies, if any of you have tried it let me know what you think, because I’ve heard very mixed reviews on it…
While in Sarajevo, I did a bit of shopping, of course. As many of you know my favorite mascara at the time is the L’Oreal Paris Miss Manga. Well, I found something even better, the Miss Manga Black Angel. It gives a lot more volume to my lashes than the original and also it’s jet black, exactly what I love.
Ladies, you have to try it!!!
