Review: Natura Siberica Northern Soap


Hi beauties! I haven't done as much skincare reviews as makeup product reviews and its time to change it and share my thoughts on some great products that I have been trying out lately :)

Today I wanna share with you my thoughts on Natura Siberica Northen Soap - Detox For Deep Facial Cleansing (120 ml, 19.50). I picked it up when I was in Estonia and the reason why I bought it was how good it smelled :)




What they say:

This soap is produced based on charcoal – a highly-effective absorbent, which easily absorbs impurities from skin pores - and our “Northern mixture” – oils and extracts of wild herbs and berries, picked in the North of Russia and Siberia. Northern soap has wonderful purifying, antioxidant, moisturizing and soothing properties, thanks to oblepikha oil and nanai limonnik, contained in its formula.


My thoughts:

The packaging of this product is simple black jar and it comes with a sponge. The product itself looks black as well. When I used it the first time it felt bit odd, because my face was black :) But the smell of it is amazing!

I love that their products are made with wild herbs and flowers. I have been using it a month now and I really like it. I feel like my skin is much softer and cleaner after I use it. I find it doesn't dry out my skin, which is always a good thing. Another good thing about this product is that its organic. I feel like my skin looks much nicer after I have started using it. 

How to use:

You wet the sponge it come with and you take with it the soap from the jar and apply it to dry skin. Avoid the lip and eye area. Massage gently and then rinse it off with warm water. After that wash the sponge. You can use it once or twice a week.


Overall i'm loving this product and wanna try out more of their skincare product. If you are interested in their products or wanna know more about the brand you can check out their webpage from here.

#NOTD: Color & Pearls


Hi Beauties! I haven't used Ciate Caviar Mini Bar yet even though I have had it over a year. Some reason I always picked something else to wear on my nails till now. I decided I wanna wear something fun and colorful and this set offers me that :)


I used from this set their nail polish in shade Pom Pom 084 and I added to one nail pearls and glitter pieces, which came in the same set and this mix is called Caviar Pearls - Prom Queen. After that is done I added some top coat and the mani is done :) I used Sally Hansen Double Duty.



Hope you liked this short nail post and see you in my next one :)

Review: Too Faced Lip Injection Color Bomb!


Hi Beauties! I love Too Faced products, but I haven't tried their lip products as much as their other products. Today I'm sharing my thoughts on their Lip Injection Color Bombs and I have them in shade Candy Burst and Bigger Berry (3 g).

L to R: Candy Burst, Bigger Berry

L to R: Candy Burst, Bigger Berry

These beauties claim to plump up your lips up to 20% and I can say my lips were much bigger after I used it. Usually I can't say with other lip plumping products if they are bigger or not, but with Too Faced Color Bombs I saw the difference. The Color Bombs are pigmented and with creamy formula. They are scented and they make your lips tingle a lot. The scent reminds me sweet and sour candy.

  • Bigger Berry - is the most gorgeous dark red color. I can't wait when fall gets here, so I can wear it :)
  • Candy Burst - is in light pink shade. I love the delicate pink shade it has and I find its perfect shade for summer.


Here are before and after pictures :)

Before

After

I feel like my lips don't stay plump with it very long. After an hour I need to reapply to make them plump again, but the color stays on way longer. 

The price of Too Faced Lip Injection Color Bomb! is 22.70 EUR and it comes in 6 different shades. You can check them out here.

Overall I'm loving these Color Bombs <3 I like how full they make my lips and they don't feel dry after I have worn them all day. They are bit pricey, but I find they are worth every penny.


Have you tried any Too Faced Lip Injection Color Bomb!? Do you like them?

Review: Avon Ultra Glazewear Absolute lip gloss


Hi beauties! By now you all know that I like Avon lip products. I like their glosses and lipstick and some of them are my favorites. Today I'm sharing my thoughts on Avon Ultra Glazewear Absolute lip gloss (6 ml) and I have it in shade Pure Poppy. All together there is 8 different shades and the full price in Estonia is 6.10 EUR.


The packaging of this Avon lip gloss is simple and sleek. It doesn't take a lot of space in your makeup bag. I like that I can see the color of the product. I don't have to look through all my glosses to find the perfect shade I want. The applicator of this lip gloss is standard one.

 


I have to say that I like the color payoff this gloss has. I didn't expect it to be that pigmented. I like that I can wear it on its own :) The gloss itself has a sweet scent to it, which I like. Its not super strong, but there definitely is a scent. 

Avon Ultra Glazewear Absolute lip gloss feels very comfortable on lips, makes my lips softer and I don't feel like I need a lip balm after I have had it on all day. So far I have been very impressed with Avon Ultra Glazewear Absolute lip gloss and would like to get more shade of it in the future.



Have you tried Avon Ultra Glazewear Absolute lip gloss already? What do you think?

#OOTD + trip to Amsterdam


Hi Beauties! Yesterday I took a trip to Amsterdam with my hubby. I have lived in Netherlands for 4 months now and I still haven't made it to Amsterdam. Shame on me! We went only for a day and I was thinking it would be great to share what I saw and also do a OOTD post :) Lets start with what I was wearing.


I was wearing a jumpsuit, which was very comfortable to wear and also it let through air. i bought it from limango Turkey.


My bag is from New Look and I bought it last year. I love the lace it has on one side. it makes it so summery and I just love lace on my clothes, handbags and accessories.


When it comes to shoes I love wearing heals, but when you need to walk all day its not the best idea. So that's why I picked these flats and I bought them from Turkey, but its has been too long time since I purchase these that I don't remember where I got them. I love the flower detailing these flats have on the top and they were comfortable to wear all day.

Here is some pictures I took in Amsterdam. I'm not the best picture taker. I like to enjoy myself and that means I forget to take pictures :) I hope you guys like the ones I did manage to snap. 

I love the canals <3

Enjoying the park, which is next to the Van Gogh museum


Its full of little surprises if you pay attention 



Hope you guys liked this post and see you in my next post!

Review: Oriflame Giordani Gold Iconic Liquid Lipstick


Hi Beauties! I'm a huge fan of liquid lipsticks and when Oriflame cam out with their liquid lipsticks I knew I needed to pick up some of them and try them out. I ordered 2 Oriflame Giordani Gold Iconic Liquid Lipsticks and they are in shade Raspberry Blush and Nude Peach (4.5 ml).


The packaging is simple black with gold writing on it and with golden cap. I love the applicator on these lipsticks and the reason why I like them so much is that when you apply it I feel like the applicator fits perfectly on the lip. It makes it much better to apply the lipstick.

L to R: Raspberry Blush, Nude Peach

The formula of these lipsticks is quite liquid, which I personally don't like. I find that I don't get even application and I have to build the color up, which is another thing I don't like. When it starts to come off it doesn't come off evenly and I don't find that it stays on that long for a liquid lipstick. It also stains your lips, but I find its not even and I personally don't like it. Only thing I like about these lipsticks is the colors and the applicator. 

  • Nude Peach - is more orange then nude color. Its a lovely color and I would get a lot of use out of it this summer, but applying it is a nightmare :/


  • Raspberry Blush - is a gorgeous berry color and it applies better then Nude Peach. I see myself wear this one more just because it applies bit better.




Overall I'm unhappy with these lipsticks and if I would have known before that they don't apply well I would have skip them.

Review: theBalm Balm Voyage! palette


Hi Beauties! Earlier today I shared a makeup look where used theBalm Balm Voyage palette and here is the promised review :) 


The packaging is cute as usual. It has cardboard packaging and it come with a mirror, which is always useful to have in a palette. In this palette you get 16 eye shadows (18.8 g) and 3 lip and cheek tints (6.6 g). One thing that I absolutely love about the packaging is that the lip and cheek tints are separately from the eye shadows. I don't have to worry about getting eye shadow allover my cream products.


You get 3 different lip and cheek tints. They are super pigmented and stay on well. I have to say they stay on cheeks better then on lips, but I don't mind that. it very easy to blend them out and you don't need a lot of product. I dipped my brush in the First Officer just a bit and I ended up like a clown (I know this sentence sounds a bit odd).

L to R: Second Officer, First Officer and Captain

This palette has a plane theme. That's why the lip/cheek tints have that kind of names :)

  • Second  Officer - it looks red in the palette and it can look a bit scare, if I'm being completely honest. It blends out easily and gives natural flush to the cheeks.
  • First Officer - is peachy toned and is crazy pigmented. I love to wear this kind of tones on summer.
  • Captain - is darker pink tint and I find that its the easiest to work with, because its not so pigmented as First Officer. It look super cute on lips as well ;)

Here you can see all the shadows and they have names like A1, B1 and so on. Does it remind you like plane seats? :P All the shadows are silky to the touch and super pigmented. theBalm did an amazing job with this palette! <3 I love the theme of it, the shadows and the lip & cheek tints. I like that I find here matte and shimmery shades, there is nude shades and also fun ones and all this goodness comes in one sleek palette :P 

Lets talk about the shadows and the different finishes they have :)

  • A4 - is black eye shadow with silver shimmer in it. It would be great to do a smokey eye with it.
  • B4 - is darker bronze shadow with shimmer in it.
  • C4 - is more copper toned shadow with a lot of shimmer to it.
  • D4 - is dark green shadow with golden sheen to it.
L to R: A4, B4, C4, D4, A3, B3, C3, D3
  • A3 - is a gorgeous silver shadow. It has a metallic finish.
  • B3 - is a matte grayish brown shadow.
  • C3 - is a matte shadow as well, but it has more warmer brown then B3.
  • D3 - is light golden bronze shade. In the palette it looks more bronze then on the swatch its just golden.
L to R: A2, B2, C2, D2, A1, B1, C1, D1
  • A2 - is gorgeous purple shadow, with blue sheen to it and there is some glitter in it as well that sparkles.
  • B2 - is a light green shadow, with sheen to it.
  • C2 - is a fun teal color with some blue sparkles in it.
  • D2 - is a rose gold shadow with metallic finish. 
  • A1 - is another gorgeous bronz golden shade, but its a bit darker then the others.
  • B1 - is matte cream toned shadow.
  • C1 - is very light cream shadow, with shimmer to it.
  • D1 - is yellowish golden shadow, with shimmer to it.
Here is a makeup look I created using this palette. If you wanna know how I created this look I have a post on it and you can see it from here.



I'm loving this palette and all the nude shades and the fun colorful ones. I think with this palette you can create a lot of different looks for day and night time. Plus it has lip & cheek tints and sleek packaging, which makes it travel friendly. 

If you are interested you can buy it from here and its $42.50.
