I absolutely love this color. I wear Essie's Fiji nail polish every summer! It's a pale milky pink, almost white, colour, that will also make you look tanner. I find the colour sleek, chic and every time I wear this I just can't stop staring at my nails all the time. This really looks lovely and beautiful on the nails!

However the formula is not as good. The application is streaky and it takes 3 coats to achieve an opaque look which is really annoying.

'Fiji' is a really popular shade from Essie and it's too beautiful to have such a poor formula.

Do you own/like this nail colour?

Have a lovely day!

Today I'm going to be talking about my top ten products under ten, euros in this case. It was really hard to pick only ten favourites but I think this final selection is great one and each one of these products deserves some special mention.  
In this post I'm going to show you only make up products but I'm also preparing a 'top10under10' of skincare, bodycare and haircare and should be up soon on the blog. Having said that, let's get started!

Kiko Glamorous Eye Pencil 
These eyepencils are creamy, high pigmented and easy to blend, plus the colour range is amazing!

Tanya Burr Lip Gloss
Tanya's lip glosses are amazing! the formula of these is fantastic! They're so creamy and not sticky at all. They also smell incredible. I really recommend this shade called 'Picnic in the Park', a really flattering coral pink colour.

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer
This has a pretty good coverage, the consistency is very creamy and it blends really well. It also works well as a natural highlighter. 

Rimmel ScandalEyes Khol Eye Pencil in Nude
This is the best nude eyeliner ever! The formula is so creamy, pigmented and long lasting. It's perfect to put in the waterline just to open up the eyes and make you more awake.

Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder
Looking for a good and affordable mattifyng powder? This one is for you! This set and mattify nicely without looking cakey. If you haven't try it yet, you definitely should.

Kiko Long Lasting Eyeshadow Stick
These are definitely long lasting, water resistant and don't crease easily. Once they have dried down, they don't smudge and will stay on all the day.The packaging is pretty and sleek and the range of colours is wide.  I particularly love the shade number 5 called Rosy Brown,  a gorgeous bronze colour with a pink undertone. These are a good dupe for the By Terry Ombre Blackstar eyeshadows!

L'Oreal Lumi Magique Touch of Light 

This is a must have! It has a light coverage but it works perfectly as an instant under eye brightener. The formula is really nice: smooth, easy to blend and gives a lovely and subtle highlighting.

Rimmel Blush in 'Santa Rose'
I was so impressed with this tiny blush when I got it that I featured it on my 2013 beauty favourites post. The colour is a beautiful and unique peachy pink shade which looks so healthy and fresh on. It leaves a nice rosy glow on the cheeks.The colour stays on all day and looks lovely on paler skin tones.

Catrice Eye Brow Pencil
The application of this is so smooth and you can shape your brows nicely. I love the spoolie on the end, perfect for brush the eyebrows. I'd like to mention here the Kiko Eyebrow Pencil which I talked about quite a lot on the blog and it's also a great eyebrow product. Both products are great!

Kiko Nail Lacquers
I couldn't let this post end without mentioning the Kiko nail polishes. What can I say?  it’s really difficult leave a Kiko store without buying one. They have so many colours to choose from and the price is super cheap.The formula of these is thick and the brush wide. The duration is pretty good as well; they last up to 4 days.

What's your top 10 under 10 €/£/$...?

Have a lovely day!

Packing beauty products for a holiday isn't so simple. I don't want to waste space packing full sizes and big bottles so I always tend to save the mini sizes and samples for when I'm traveling. This is what I'll be taking with me these holidays.

Lovea SPF 50 sun protection is the only big bottle I'm bringing with me. I really like this sunscreen,  it's packed with organic and nice ingredients including monoi and argan oils. The formula is not greasy at all and smells divine.
