To celebrate my three year anniversary with WordPress I bring you an update.
Summer is finally here, although the weather hasn’t really been that great here in Sweden. I’m actually counting down the days until summer vacation and I’m finally back in Sarajevo!
In Sweden, where I live, we don’t have the makeup brand Essence! So, whenever I travel in Europe I make sure to pick up a few things to try!
While I was away just a few weeks ago I stopped by the Essence stand with my list of things people have recommended online or to me personally but I only found a few things. Most of it was sold out.
These last few days I’ve been on a cleaning spree, going through all my beauty stuff. While doing so I discovered that I’m a nude, natural, gold, earth tone eye shadows junkie. I knew a natural eye shadow is a favorite of mine but I certainly didn’t know I had that many.
Here are some of my faves, the ones I actually use every now and then, all the others are in a box with all my other palettes and single eye shadows that I rarely use.
What are some of your favorite nude/natural singles or palettes?
As you can see I haven’t gotten the go-to nude palette with bloggers, The Naked ones from Urban Decay. That is because I think as long as you have a good eye shadow primer pretty much any and every eye shadow will work…
Let me know what you think!? Am I missing out by not getting it?
Most of you know by now that Primark has it’s own range of beauty products. And while I was in London I picked up a few pieces to try. Especially because I had read that they were good.
Among other things I got this 8 HOUR DEEP HYDRATING CREAM with argan oil. And let me tell you, it’s really good. Or should I say, was really good because I’ve run out of it. In the winter time I get dry patches, especially my cheeks and putting this cream on before going to bed every night has really helped. I usually use a Nivea face cream that I love but this Primark one, considering the price, was pretty good too.
I know people always say if the price is high the quality is better and I just want to point out that that isn’t always the case.
Do you have any budget tips? What is something I need to try?
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’ve finally tried NYX makeup and I love it. A few days ago my order arrived and since then I’ve been using the products. I must admit that I’m pleasantly surprised.
I’m super excited right now as I’ve just ordered my first order of NYX makeup.
