Review: Avon Planet Spa Perfectly Purifying Gommage Face Mask


Hi beauties! I'm a huge fan of face masks and today I'm sharing with you  Avon Planet Spa Perfectly Purifying Gommage face mask (50 ml). Its with dead sea minerals.


The mask comes in a 50 ml squeeze tube, which is very comfortable to use and also the packaging is travel friendly.


The product itself doesn't look so good, but it makes your skin so smooth and its suitable for sensitive skin (even though in the ingredients you can see it has parfum in it).

How to use:
Apply thin layer of the product on the face. Let it dry 1-2 minutes. Then rub the mask of with your hands. After that wash your face with water. It can be used 2-3 times a week.

After first use I could feel how much smoother my skin was and also it was much softer. I like to use it in the mornings, because it takes only 1-2 minutes. Its fuss free and it doesn't feel uncomfortable on skin, when you wait it to dry.

It has been my go to mask when I feel my skin is not as smooth as I would like it to be.

Ingredients: Aqua, Butylene Glycol, Caprylic\Capric Triglyceride, Sucrose Cocoate, Algin, PPG-20 Methyl Glucose Ether, Methylparaben, Sorbitan Sesquioleate, Cholesterol, Disodium Edta, Alcohol Denat, Calcium Silicate, Silica, Sodium HydroxideParfum, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Sea Salt.

(Green - Low Hazard, Yellow -Moderate Hazard, Red - High Hazard. All the info on hazard levels is taken from EWG's Skin Deep Cosmetic Database)


Overall I think its a great face mask. The ingredients list good be better, but I can't really complain, because it is so affordable. It hasn't irritated my skin or cause me to have brake outs, so I'm happy with this mask.


Don't forget to check out the giveaway ;)

Review: NYC City Proof 24H Eye Primer


Hi beauties! I love eye shadow primers and usually when it comes to primers I go for the high end ones. Last week I picked up NYC  Proof 24H Eye Primer (2 g, 3.99 EUR).


I love the fact that it comes in a chubby twist up pencil form. Its so easy to apply it. I apply it straight to the lid and them blend it out with my finger. Its super easy to use! I like that I don't have to squeeze out the product from a tube. I get on the lids as much product as needed and I don't waste any produc.

Once its applied you can feel its sticky, which in my head means that the shadow stays put, because of the stick base. Since I got it I have used it every day and I have to say I love it. It keeps my eye shadow on as well as some of the other high end eye shadow primers I have used in the past.

My eye shadow hasn't creased when using this and it hasn't irritated my eyes. I'm more then impressed with this gem and can't wait to try more from the brand. 


Have you tried this eye shadow primer from NYC?

Review: Rimmel Apocalips Lip Velvet


Hi loves! At last I got my hands on Rimmerl Apocalips Lip Velvet liquid lipsticks :) I have them in shade Atomic Rose, Burning Lava and Orange-Ology (5 ml). 


The packaging of these are the same as the original Apocalips. The only change is that these have a matte packaging, because these beauties are matte liquid lipsticks ;)


All 3 shades I picked up are extremely pigmented and creamy. They glide on lips easily and they dry down fast. I find they are drying on lips, so before I apply these I'll scrub my lips, so there wouldn't be any chipping going on and also use a good lip balm to make my lips soft and hydrated. 

As much as I like the color of these, I have to say I'm bit disappointed with the staying on power. They don't last through a lunch\dinner and they barely made through my tea test :( 

  • Atomic Rose - is a nude pink shade, which is good everyday color. I like to pair it up with a smokey eye.
  • Burning Lava - is a stunning red. On the swatch it looks bit deeper then it really is. Its a perfect bold lip color.
  • Orange-Ology - is perfect shade if you are into orange lips. its bright and bold color and I love it.
If you didn't like the scent of the original Apocalips lacquers then you don't need to worry, because these don't have any scent to them.


Overall I like these gorgeous shades. They are affordable and the color pay off is amazing. I only wish they would stay on bit better.


Have you tried these beauties from Rimmel before?

Review: Artdeco High Performance Eyeshadow Stylo


Hi beauties! I haven't tried many products from Artdeco, but when I saw their High Performance Eyeshadow Stylo, I knew I need it in my life and I picked up shade 28 (1.4 g). I got my hands on it when I was in Estonia, but their products are also available here in Netherlands.


Its an eye shadow, which come in twist up pencil form. The packaging is bit chubby and the cap of the shadow stick is the same shade as the eye shadow color. 


At first glance it doesn't seem much, but it has the most amazing golden glitter in it, which looks gorgeous. Specially when the light hits it.

The formula of it is really creamy and buttery. Also its waterproof formula and I like to use it in the inner corner of the eye.  It stays put all day and even If I do rub my eyes, I don't have to worry if anything happened with my shadow. I also like that after applying it in the inner corner or all over the lid its not sticky. 

There is not scent to the eye shadow and it didn't irritate my sensitive eyes. 

In general I find Artdeco products bit on the pricey side, but the quality of their products is amazing. I would like to pick up more of their eye shadow sticks. Its easy to use and takes no time to apply it all over the lid for wash of color.

Review: theBalm Balmsai palette


Hi beauties! I'm a huge fan of theBalm eye shadows and when I first saw their Balmsai palette (14.4 g) on Belleza Kisses blog, I knew I need it in my life :) I picked it up when I was in Estonia.


Balmsai palette comes in a cute cardboard packaging and it closes magnetically. Even though I'm not a fan of cardboard packaging I feel thBalm's packaging always has a good quality. I also like that its slim and compact. 

Inside there is 18 shadows, a mirror and it comes with 2 shaping stencils.


The first stencil is to help to do the cat eye, which could be handy if you are just starting out.



The second one is a brow guide and shadow fall out guard. Again very handy to have.


It also has a guide how to use the stencils.


Now lets talk about the shadows :) The quality is amazing as usually! To the touch they are so buttery and silky. They blend out like a dream and I didn't experience any creasing. I did get a bit of fall out when I was using the darker eye shadows. I'm so impressed with all the shadows and there isn't even one, which I don't like. 


On the picture above you see 2 top rows and they are in section called In The Buff (Basics).

  • Wipe Out - at first seems like a matte cream color shade, but its not matte. It has a slight sheen to it, which looks gorgeous under the brow bone.
  • High Tide - is a white shimmery shadow, which looks perfect in the inner corner.
  • Hang 10 - is a nude shade, with a lovely sheen to it.
  • Dream Boat - is a more warm tone nude shade, with a sheen to it. Looks lovely all over the lid.
  • Sandbar - is one of my favorite shadows from the palette. It looks in the pan like another nude shade, which it is in a way, but it has a gorgeous pink sheen to it. Looks fab all over the lid.
  • Tubular - is a darker nude shade, with metallic finish.



The shadows in the next section which you can see on the picture above is called Mavericks (splash of color). 

  • Epic - is a dark bronze shade with a sheen to it.
  • Surf's Up - is a dark silver shade with shimmer to it. It looks gorgeous all over the lid, if you go for a smokey eye.
  • Big Kahuna - is a bright sea green shade with a golden sheen to it.
  • Kawabunga -is a dark shimmery olive green shadow, which I like to wear all over the lid. It looks so pretty!
  • Surfari - is a dark purple shade, with blue glitter in it.
  • Pipeline - is a dark metallic blue shade, with blue glitter in it.


First 3 shades on the picture above go under section Curve & Angle (Brow/Shadows) and all 3 can be used as eye shadow or you can fill in your brows. Next 3 shades go under Catch A Wave (Use Wet or Dry).
  • Score - is a matte brown shade, which I use to warm up my crease. 
  • Dig It - is a darker matte brown then Score and it has more cold tones to it.
  • Woodie - is a dark warm toned brown, with matte finish.
  • Stoked - in the pan it looks glittery purples shade. On the swatch it looks more black then purple and it has purple glitter in it.
  • Ripper - is the darkest brown shade in the palette and its matte.
  • Righteous - is a matte black.

Here is a look I did using only eye shadows from this palette. As you can see I  went for more nude day time look :)



There is nice selection of shimmery and matte shades. I like there is nudes and colorful shades. There is so many different looks you can create with it. Its a perfect palette to take with you when traveling. I'm so happy I picked it up. Its a great addition to my collection.

Which is your favorite palette at the moment?

Review: Makeup Revolution Ultra Blush Palette


Hi beauties! End of last year I was on Makeup Revolution kick and ordered a lot of their products to try out and one of the products was their Ultra Blush palette in shade Golden Sugar (£6.00).


The packaging of its black sleek compact, which has very good quality. They always impress me with their packaging! Inside you fined a big mirror and 8 beautiful shimmery beauties. There is 2 baked highlighters, baked bronzer, merged blushers, matte bronzer and shimmery bronzer. Overall this palette is very shimmery and not what I usually go for. 


Lets start with the top row. The first shade is a silvery highlighter, which for me is too shimmery. I like to use it to highlight my eye inner corners.  I'm not bold enough to wear it on my face.

The next one in line is a light pink shade, with lovely sheen to it. I use it as a highlighter. It looks gorgeous paired with matte blusher.

The third one is something I wear as a blush. Its bit darker then the previous one and it also has a gorgeous sheen to it. It leave a lovely glow to the cheeks.

The last one is a bronzer, at least I think so. Its a bronze shade, with golden shimmer to it. I'm not personally fan of it, because its too shimmery for me.


First shade from the bottom row is a nude color highlighter. This is more my cup of tea. It gives a gorgeous sheen and glow to the cheeks.

The next one is bit darker nude then the previous one with hint of pink in it. Its also super shimmery and I like to use it as my eye shadow.

Next one is a more of a shimmery bronzer. Its the most shimmery thing I have come cross in my life. Its mega pigmented and shimmery, again I'm not bold enough to wear it.

The last product is a matte bronzer. Its very pigmented and I find its bit orange on my skin tone. I haven't used it a ton.


I find the quality of the products is amazing. If shimmery highlighters, blushes and bronzers are your thing, you'll love it. I'm more of a matte blush kind of girl and I'm using this palette mostly to highlight my face :)

here is an eye look I did using this palette. I did add a bit of dark brown in the crease for an eye shadow palette. All other shades I used are from the blush palette.



The next picture will show the lovely glow you can get with this palette.



I have mixed feeling about this palette. In one hand I love it, but the bronzer are bit off for my skin tone. Like I said before the quality is amazing as usually and they do preform fantastically. 

If this palette is something you like, it available on their page (link).
