New from Kiko Cosmetics

Tuesday, 29 September 2015
I'm loving Kiko at the moment. After the gorgeous rose gold tones collection and the amazing Power pro nail lacquers, they have now launched a new range of lipsticks and lip liners, and they look pretty good!

GLOSSY DREAM SHEER LIPSTICK link
The texture of these lipsticks is creamy and the finish is sheer and glossy but buildable in pigmentation. They're hydrating and comfortable to wear. The shade #202 is a lovely peachy pink nude, a natural colour that compliments many different makeup looks. It contains slightly large shimmer particles which is quite disappointing; isn't really noticeable on the lips but they're so difficult to remove. I'm not a fan of the packaging although I love the rose gold details of the lipstick.  

CREAMY COLOUR COMFORT LIP LINER link
I'm impressed with these new lip liners. The colour range is amazing and the formula is also great. They are completely matte, super creamy and so easy to apply. These are also waterproof and super long lasting. The colour I got is the number #302 which is a vivid warm pink, super pigmented and opaque. 

Will you be picking up something from this new line?



Top five of the month

Sunday, 27 September 2015


This month I've been loving...


KIKO PRO NAIL LACQUER, 04 ROSE SAND. I loooove these new Kiko nail polishes and in particular this colour. Rose Sand is a beautiful warm peachy nude. The consistency of this is amazing and one coat provides full coverage. It has a shiny, glossy effect and is super long lasting. link
MAYBELLINE LASH SENSATIONAL MASCARA. This mascara is a must have from the drugstore. It goes on easily and it has an immediate impact on the look of the lashes. The curved brush really helps to cover each individual lash. The result is natural and the lashes look fuller and volumised. link
L'OREAL MISS MANGA is another mascara that surprised me this month. It make my lashes long, defined and last forever. The wand is quite flexible but I didn't find difficult to apply. It's also great for the bottom lashes. It does not smudge and is very waterproof. link
KIKO INTENSELY LAVISH LIPSTICK in Lusty Peony. This is part of the Kiko Rebel Romantic collection. First of all, the packaging is gorgeous, it's rose gold and looks so luxurious. The lipstick is a mauve pink colour, is super creamy and pigmented and last for a long time. link
KIKO SMART LIP PENCIL 712 ROSE MAUVEIt's a very natural pink with brown undertones. (you can see on the lips here) It glides on perfectly giving a my-lips-but-better-colour kind of shade and very Kylie Jenner like. It's very creamy, pigmented and can be used on the entire lip. Oh and it's only 2 euro! link

My Top Five Nude/Neutral Nail Polishes

Friday, 25 September 2015

I love love neutral nails. Some might thing they're boring. I think neutrals are chic and elegant. These are some of my favourites nude/neutrals nail polishes. 

RIMMEL SALON PRO, OH MR.DARCYIt's a dusky, taupe with a slightly lilac undertone. It's a lovely neutral shade that goes with everything. It looks chic and instantly gives a sophisticated look. I really like the wide rounded brush of this nail polish, makes the application quick and easy. It also dries quickly giving a gel finish effect.
ESSIE, ETERNAL OPTIMIST.  It is a beautiful dusty pink, a great shade for a everyday wear and flattering on many different skin tones. It's one of my all time favourite nail polishes. 
L'OREAL COLOR RICHE MACARON NOISETTE. This is a beige nude colour with a slightly peachy undertone. It has silver shimmer through it, but is very subtle and you barely can't see on the nails. It's quite sheer but with only two coats looks absolutely beautiful.
KIKO PRO NAIL LACQUER, 04 ROSE SAND. I'm obsessed with this colour and with the formula of these new Kiko nail polishes.  This is a beautiful warm peachy nude.  The consistency of this is amazing and one coat provides full coverage. It has a shiny, glossy effect and is super long lasting. 
L'OREAL COLOR RICHE PEACH NEGLIGE. This is part of the L'Oreal "Les Blancs" collection and is a white-based light peach shade. The colour is super opaque and long lasting. The polish has a nice thick consistency and provide a good coverage, even only with one coat.

Beauty Repurchases

Thursday, 24 September 2015
Maybelline Fit Me concealer link
L'Oreal Lumi Magique Highlighting Pen link

As much as I love trying new products there are a few I know I can rely on to get the job done. These two makeup items are some of my all-time favourites make up products. Two products that I end up loving so much and I forever repurchase. 

MAYBELLINE FIT ME CONCEALER. I mentioned this a million times before and you must be sick of me talking about it but seriously it is the BEST concealer ever! It has a pretty good coverage and works perfectly for dark circles and blemishes. The consistency is very creamy, it blends well and left my under eyes super soft and moisturised. This effortlessly covers dark circles, lifts and brightens the eye area. You must try it, it's also very affordable!

L'OREAL LUMI MAGIQUE PEN. Other product that has been featured multiple times on the blog. It has a light coverage but it works perfectly as an instant under eye brightener. The formula is really nice, smooth and easy to blend. It's great for under eye, and also for highlighting areas of the face like cheekbones and brow bone for an instant face lift. This brighten up like no other!

Mac haul

Tuesday, 22 September 2015




I recently went on a little shopping trip and decided to pop into Mac and pick up a couple of new things I really wanted to try. Take a look!

The first thing I wanted to buy was a matte nude lipstick. After trying numerous shades I went for the colour Kinda Sexy, a colour which I never though I would buy. When I put this on I was amazed with how perfectly this shade was. I tried other popular shades from Mac such as Velvet Teddy, Please me and the famous Mehr, which didn't suit me at all. Kinda Sexy is a very natural pinky nude with a slightly peachy undertone. It's a very natural shade and wearable nude shade. 


I also picked up one lip liner in the shade Dervish. It's a very natural rosy pink colour and it has a hint of shimmer. This is a lighter version of Soar lip liner which I actually find too dark for me. Dervish is the perfect match for my lips, a great MLBB everyday colour.

Last but not least, I got this gorgeous blush called Rosy Outlook. I've been looking for a blush colour like this for months. Rosy outlook is a pale warm pink with a matte finish. It's the perfect shade for everyday, very natural and wearable. 

Have you tried any of these?




Mascaras on rotation

Sunday, 20 September 2015

 Here's a quick rundown of my current open mascara collection. I have this 4 mascaras on rotation at the moment and that I really like.

Benefit's mascaras


I'm so happy Sephora does travel sizes which is great to try out the product. The mini Benefit mascaras are great to test the product without spending a fortune.



I'm not a big fan of the Roller Lash mascara. It does a good job, lengthens, defines and curls the lashes but it didn't impressed me so much. On the other hand, They're real is seriously amazing. It's waterpoof, voluminizing, it curls and lengthens my lashes nicely and stays on all the day. This has quickly become one of my favourite mascaras ever. 


The Drugstore


I was so curious about the L'Oreal Miss Manga mascara and now that I tried it I have to say that I like it so far. It make my lashes long, defined and last forever. The wand is quite flexible but I didn't find difficult to apply. It's also great for the bottom lashes. It does not smudge and is very waterproof. 



One of the best mascaras I have seen in a long time is the Maybelline Lash Sensational. It goes on easily and it has an immediate impact on the look of the lashes. The curved brush really helps to cover each individual lash. The result is natural and the lashes look fuller and volumised. 



Have you tried any of these mascaras? Tell me thoughts.

Current Makeup Bag Favourites

Tuesday, 8 September 2015

I'm currently loving these 3 products from the drugstore:

KIKO POWER PRO NAIL LACQUER in Rose Sand. I really love these new nail polishes from Kiko and specially this shade called Rose sand which is a beautiful warm peachy nude. I also love the brush. It's large and thick, it glides over the nail easily which makes the application very easy. The polish dries really quickly and the finish is super glossy. 

KIKO INTENSELY LAVISH LIPSTICK in Lusty Peony. This is part of the Kiko Rebel Romantic collection. First of all, the packaging is gorgeous, it's rose gold and looks so luxurious. The lipstick is a mauve pink colour, is super creamy and pigmented and last for a long time.

The Kiko lip pencil you need to add to your wishlist

Friday, 4 September 2015

Smart Lip Pencil #712 Rose Mauve

This two-euro lip pencil is amazing! It's a very natural pink with brown undertones. It glides on perfectly giving a my-lips-but-better-colour kind of shade and very Kylie Jenner like. It's very creamy, pigmented and can be used on the entire lip. It last pretty well on its own. 

Great and super inexpensive lip liner that has potential to become a staple in my makeup bag.

Make sure to check out this little gem!



Five empties I would repurchase

Wednesday, 2 September 2015

GARNIER CLEANSING WATER. I really liked this one! The perfect dupe for the Bioderma Sensibio Micellar water! It does not leave the skin stripped or irritate the eye area and it is good for sensitive skin. 

NIVEA 3-IN-1 SENSITIVE MICELLAR WATER. Another amazing micellar water from the drugstore. The Nivea water removes makeup efficiently even waterproof mascaras and leaves my skin nice and soft.

DOVE SUMMER GLOW NOURISHING LOTIONIt's super easy to apply and it creates a really natural sun kissed look. It smells nice and makes the skin feel moisturized.  It is great for fair skin girls and also for self-tanner beginners.

LUSH BIG SHAMPOO. This is a staple in my shower. It's a sea salt and clarifying shampoo used for a deep cleansing to remove any buildup. I use this one time per week and my hair comes out super shiny, clean and with a lot of volume.

MAYBELLINE FIT ME CONCEALER. This is definitely my go-to concealer. It has a pretty good coverage and works perfectly for  dark circles and blemishes. The consistency is very creamy, it blends well and left my under eyes super soft and moisturised.
