My new Nyx Lip products

Hello everyone

I know …. I know…I said I would post more posts this year and I’m so late … the truth is that I couldn´t organize my self, the inspiration to write also ran away and the fact that having to think and write  in English makes the process even longer.
In the last post I said I never write down any goals or any plans for the year.. and I never had a planner..( ok ok.. I had when I was 13/14 years). But now I think I need to write down my things… to get me on track… to organize my ideas, to visualize and work for it!
So I made a planner for me… and hopefully I can stick with it!
But even so, here I am with a post about some lipsticks, lipglosses, liquid lipsticks of the brand Nyx that I have adored. They are affordable, comfortable on the lips and easy to apply.( at least for me)
Last weekend I went through Boots and  I find  so difficult to come home  without anything .
I bought a butter lipstick, some butter glosses and a lippencil.

What I can say?!?! I loved it!!!!!

I already had some Nyx liquid lipsticks  (the 3 on the left) and I love them, they are easy to apply, they glide very well, they have good pigmentation, they look matte and they last on the lips. They smell so good (almost vanilla ice cream).

This time I wanted to test the butter ones ( the 4 on the right) !!!
I bought 4 butter glosses and one butter lipstick ( left corner) and this last one It´s so far my favourite!!  I will buy more one or two to keep them in my bag, in the car… that´s how much I love this. The colour that I choose was nº 17 – Root Beer Float

I like colours for day to day, don´t call too much attention,  so I like nudes, pastel colours.
I love the formula, it´s really like butter on your lips when you apply, but in a good way… (not greasy at all), so comfortable, so moisturizing,  turns out matte but no drying.. looks amazing!!!
They are  affordable , easy to find and for sure  I’ll test more colors !!!
Can´t wait to get my hands on more.
The choices this time fell  in the colors of day to day, nudes and light colors.
The butter gloss are ver comfortable too, affordable as well and with lots of colours to choose from.

Too Faced Merry Macarons- Swatch

Hello all…

When I was looking for Christmas gift sets in the make-up area  I found the new collection of the Too Faced and I was so excited … the colours of the palettes were beautiful.

I started looking for this particular palette, because had the colours that I liked, since they were more neutral and I could use more often.

It was so difficult to have access to this palette … I only could find it in Debenhams and was out of stock … for 3 weeks I went to the website everyday to see if was in stock already.

One of the days and without any hope I went to the website and there was in low Stock…. I did not even think twice … I bought it !!!! Ohh happy day 🙂

When I got the order and opened the package … ohhhhh my !!! They were beautiful colours and had a mini  Better Then Sex mascara that I was eager to experiment and  know why  all the buzz over the internet.

20161210_155106

 

For now, I have not tested, just made a swatch to show you how beautiful they are and my  first opinion is that they are soft, not chalky and I am willing to test in my eye balls.

 

Since I’m not an expert in makeup, I hope they are easy to apply and blend well because I´m   always  in a hurry. ( mom thing I belive)

I hope you like the swatch and share with me your opinions.
Thank you for stopping by..

Essie – Gel Couture review

1481391456120

 

Hello everybody,

Today I´m sharing with all of you my experience with this ´new ´Essie gel polish without the UV lamp.

I didn´t have high expectations, since the polishes with me last very little. 2 days and they are already the chipping since I do everything without gloves and I forgot many times that I have my  nails painted.The truth is that I’m not going to wear gloves every time I do something.

So I bought a color – Take me to thread – and  the top coat.

23dee74b919d3ee8b90ea9ca7ac32b2bbc4bf989b15dc119d8pimgpsh_fullsize_distr

To start the application is was very easy. The brush is wide enough to cover the nail with a few strokes. The pigmentation is wonderful and has a fantastic shine.

I passed two layers and then the top coat. I do not have much patience to wait for the polish to dry  so I apply well before starting to watch a movie  to distract myself and so I’m not tempted to go do things that ruin the polish.

For 7 days, I’ve been doing what I do everyday ….things like washing dishes, changing diapers, cleaning the house, doing arts and crafts with kids, using glues, glitters, paints, etc.
With the passing of the days I was truly impressed because the polish  was wonderful, without chipping and with the brightness and shine  intact …
I think that for the first time I did not retouch the polish for a week and even after these 7 days, there are very few flaws.

I really want to test other colors because sometimes the colours have different formulas and affect the behavior of the polish, but so far I’m very satisfied!

Did you already tested these?
Do you suggest other polishes that last long?

Kiko Cosmetics Haul

Hello everyone,

Today I want to share with you some of Kiko Cosmetics products thay I bought  in Portugal, during my holidays!!

I am relatively new in these wanderings of makeup. About 1 year and a half I started to be   more interested in other products,  other colors that made me get out of my comfort zone and use more items.
I rarely wore makeup, but when I needed to go out to a party,  formal dinner, I only used eye shadow, mascara and lipbalm. Thats it… no blush, no foudation or BB cream… Nothing!!! ( weirdo)
The truth is … I was not into lose some time getting ready and walk trow the door. Super lazy …. :(


This interest came  when I started to watch some youtubers to talk and explain so well as tecniques and ´how to´and look nice and a little bit more elegant.
I was watching countless videos, blogs and reviews and I started to test some of the simple techniques with simple products.

I liked … Loved… a lot!!!!.  It is true that I have more time now. More ´me time´.

So I started to buy products that I think it will work for me and testing.It´s a addicted ´world´.

Therefore and after seeing some bloggers to speak of Kiko Cosmetics, and I was in Portugal, with some  Kiko stores around I was very happy to go inside and see all the buzz.
 I bought a very affordable little things. <3

Nail polish (No 1) It has a beautiful colour, very summery, and lasted me 4 days without chip, even with the normal work of the house and I  work with children, I am constantly washing hands, colouring with paints, playing with legos and other toys.

Face Masks to pamper your skin

 

On my recent trip to Portugal, I couldn´t avoid  one visit to Sephora.
Looking for products that I cant find here in Ireland but well known around the internet.
I was looking for facial masks and found the famous (or perhaps not) Tony Moly. I was pretty excited because I wanted to test some of them.
I´m relative new to this ´beauty world´ ( cof cof , I´m in my late 30´s ) but I was excited about face masks and fingers crossed they do what they claim. 😀
So, I end up buying this ones but so far only tried the Tomato one!! Let me tell you… I was super amazed with the results.
Its a one sheet masks soaked in a ´gel´and  I applied on my face and I end up reading a book for 20 minutes. After that I took the mask off and massaged all my face with the leftover gel in the packaging. I felt immediately some difference… more glow and definitely more smooth. The day after… I even notice more differences… my skin was amazing!! So, thumbs up for the Tomato Mask sheet!!
So amazing to feel your skin glowing …
I will try the others ones and I will give my opinion too.
