Review: Milani Bella Eyes Gel Powder Eyeshadows


Hi loves! When I was in the US I picked up few Milani products and today I'm sharing with you guys their single Bella Gel Powder eyeshadows (1.4 g). I have them in shade Bella Sand, Bella Champagne, Bella Emerald and Bella Gold.

L to R: Bella Sand, Bella Gold, Bella Emerald, Bella Champagne

These shingle shadows from Milani come in little golden compacts, which are bit bulky. The lid of the little compact is clear, so you can see the color of your shadow.

Top to bottom: Bella Champagne, Bella Emerald, Bella Gold, Bella Sand

The shadows are pigmented and silky to the touch. I did use them with the eye shadow primer under the shadows and without the primer. The shadows lasted longer with the primer and didn't crease. 

All 4 shadows are shimmery and it was easy to work with them. They blend out beautifully, so you don't need to spend a long time for blending. They didn't irritate my eyes when I was wearing them and also there is no scent to them. Beauties who don't like scented products can enjoy these too :)

  • Bella Champagne - Like the name says its champagne color shade, with shimmer to it. Its lovely everyday shadow :)
  • Bella Gold - looks like melted gold in the pan. its shimmery and pigmented and goes well with Bella Emerald.
  • Bella Emerald - looks deep green in the pan. It has a shimmer to it and I like to wear it all over the lid.
  • Bella Sand - is light beige shadow, with shimmer to it. Its also good everyday shadow.


I don't have anything bad to say about these shadows. I find they are affordable and the quality is good! I wish they would be available in Europe too! 


Have you tried these single shadows from Milani?

Review: Avon Naturals Body Care Indulging Chocolate Body Scrub


Hi loves! Hope you all are having fab weekend so far! Today's review is to all chocolate lovers ;) Avon Naturals body care Indulging Chocolate Body Scrub (200 ml) smells like chocolate and not in a fake way <3


It comes in a traditional squeeze tube, which is easy to use when showering. 


Its thick paste and its a fine scrub. I usually like scrubs which have big particles in it, but its nice to use for a change. As I said before it smells wonderful <3 I love the chocolate scent it has, but it doesn't linger on skin after I have used it and its fine by me. I don't know how I feel about smelling like chocolate bar :) 

It leaves my skin soft and it doesn't feel drying, for me its a huge plus. My skin is already dry (except my face) and I don't need it to get dryer then it is. I use it 2 times a week and it does a great job exfoliating my skin. Its enough to make my skin feeling soft and smooth :) 


Overall I like this scrub and do recommend it, if you are looking a fine scrub with a good price. 


Have you tried Avon scrubs before?

Review: Flormar Eye Shadow Quartet - Pink Flamingo


Hi loves! I picked up Flormar quad in 402 Pink Flamingo (12 g, 6.95 EUR) when I was in Amsterdam. I have reviewed one of their quads before and you can find the review here.


The packaging of this quad is quite compact and in it you find a mirror, which is rather small and little applicator that I have lost already. In my opinion the packaging is travel friendly. I also like that the lid is clear, so I can see what shades are in it. 


All shadows in the quad are shimmery. The pigmentation is great and the texture of the shadows is buttery. I like the color selection in the quad, but I would have liked one of the shadows to be matte. I like to use matte shades in the crease.  These blend out beautifully and I didn't get any fall out with them, which is always a good thing. 

There is absolutely no scent to the quad and I didn't experience any irritation when I was wearing them. They also lasted all day on me (I did use a eye shadow primer), without creasing.

Here is an eye look I created using this quad. I also took some of the matte shadows from theBalm Meet Matt(e) nude palette. 



Overall I like this quad from Flormar. The shadows are pigmented and buttery. I think its great value for the money and the shadows have amazing quality :) 


Have you tried any Flormar products before?

Review: Mally High-Shine Liquid Lipstick Pen



Hi beauties! I'm a huge fan of Mally Beauty and everything that I have tried so far I have been loving! Its a great brand  and I can't wait to discover more :) That said we can move on today's review and I'm going to share my thoughts on their High-Shine Liquid Lipstick Pen and I have it in shade Starburst (3.5 g, $20).


The packaging of it is very simple and practical. It comes in twist up pen form and you have a control how much product comes out. It comes with a nice size brush applicator, which makes applying it easy and comfortable.


What they say:
Mally's High-Shine Liquid Lipstick Pen is a high-performance, 4-in-1 product that includes your lip primer, lipstick, lip gloss, and lip liner all in one! It is a beautiful, smooth, and creamy formula that lasts. These lip pens give you the perfect amount of color combined with the sexy high shine of a gloss. You can wear it over Mally's Lipstick Singles to add shine or alone to give you a beautiful everyday glossy lip.


My  thoughts:

Lets start with the scent :) I love the sweet scent this lipstick pen has <3 Its so good! Some beauties might not like it, because its quite noticeable, but I like it. 

Its gorgeous liquid lipstick, which glides on beautifully and the pigmentation is amazing. I like the shimmer in it, which makes your lips appear bigger and fuller and is it not what we all want ;) It looks gorgeous on its own and on top of other lippis, but I prefer to wear it on its own. It doesn't feel drying on lips and the staying on power is amazing. It survived me drinking drinks, but not eating. I think its because I like to lick my lips :D

Review: Maybelline Baby Skin


Hi beauties! I was quite excited when I got Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser (20 ml) in a beauty swap. I have heard so many good reviews about it and had high expectations for it.


It comes in squeeze tube packaging, which doesn't take up a lot of room and is travel friendly.


Its clear primer and has silicon feel to it. i didn't notice that it did a good job blurring my pores. When I was wearing it I also noticed that I didn't get as oily as usual, but I still got oily. That's the only plus I can say about this product. I'm not a fan of the silicon feel and it seriously didn't do anything! Its rather short review, but I don't have anything else to say about it. I don't like it and wouldn't recommended it to anyone. 


Thanks for reading! :)

October Empties 2014


Hi beauties! I wanted to film a video, but I couldn't make myself do it some reason. Instead I'm writing a blog post :) 


Body:


  • Body Shop Blueberry Body Scrub-Gelee (200 ml) - I'm sad that its over :( It smelled so good and it looked like blueberry jam :) 
  • Bath & Body Works Mad About You Triple Moisture Body Cream (226 g) - Its over! It smelled so good! It wasn't my favorite body cream, bu I would buy it again, because of the scent. Too bad they don't sell Bath & Body Works products here :(
  • Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Buttercream (50 ml) - I got it in a beauty swap and have hold on to it a long time....I finally used it up. It made my skin so soft and smelled even better. I would like to get a new one, but they don't sell it here :(
  • Avon Planet Spa Body Cream (200 ml) - Its with Colombian coffee extract. It smells fresh and was a good moisturizer. I did like it and would buy it again if I have a chance :) This one I actually can get my hands on :D 
  • Avon Skin So Soft Silky Stay Shave Gel (150 ml) - Its my favorite shaving gel and I already have a new tube of this. I'll buy it again when I go to Estonia :)

Hair:



  • Phyto Phytojoba Intense Hydrating Brilliance Shampoo (50 ml) - It was a great shampoo and I didn't need to apply conditioner after I used it. I would consider buying a full size product of it.
  • Lee Stafford Dry Shampoo Dark (150 ml) - its my all times favorite dry shampoo. It makes my hair look like I just washed it and it doesn't make my scalp itchy. I will buy it again after I use up some of my other dry shampoos.

Skincare:


  • Julique Herbal Recovery Advanced Serum (2 ml) - I didn't really like this serum and the reason for it is that it didn't smell so good :(
  • Sisley Black Rose Cream Mask (4 ml) - I got 2 uses out of it and I did like it, but I'm not sure if I would buy the full size of this product.
  • Wild About Beauty Botanical Skin Prep Serum (3 ml) - I have to say I enjoyed this serum a lot. I could tell from the first time I tried it, that I like it. I would consider buying a full size product of this goodness :) 

  • Kruidvat Cleansing Wipes (25 wipes) - I use these only to wipe off swatches and it does a good job of it. I already have a new pack of these and will continue buying them.

  • Avon Anew Clinical E-Defence Multi-Shield Lotion SPF 30 (30 ml) - Its my 3rd bottle that I have used up and I have reviewed it before on my blog. I do like it and continue to use it :) I already have a new bottle of it!
  • Avon Anew Anti-Wrinkle Serum (30 ml) - I bought it because I have some lines on my forehead and between my brows. I hoped it will take them away or something, but I didn't notice any difference. I wouldn't buy it again.
  • Mamonde First Energy Serum (10 ml) - I got it in Memebox and it lasted long time. I did like it and saw the difference it made in my skin. I would buy a full size product of it, if I could find it here.
  • Max Clinic Caviar Massage Oil Foam (110 g) - Another product that I got from Memebox. I didn't like it at first, but the more I use it the more I liked it. I don't think I would buy it on my own, because its pricey.
  • Garnier Pure Active Intensive Toner (200 ml) - its my all time favorite toner and it keeps my skin nice and clear. I already have a new bottle of it :)
  • Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Cream (15 ml) - My skin loved it! It felt very light on skin and it didn't brake me out. I would like to buy a full size after I use up some of my other creams.
  • Body Shop Vitamin E Night Cream (15 ml) - It was bit richer then their moisture cream, but I still liked it. It didn't feel too heavy on skin and absorbed fast into the skin.
  • Avon Planet Spa Bali Botanica Face Mask (75 ml) - I loved to use it in the mornings and after using it my skin felt so soft and fresh. Here is a full review on it. I would buy it again.

Makeup:


  • Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer - I did like this concealer, but it wasn't perfect match for me. I'm not sure if I would buy it again.
  • Manhattan Wake Up Concealer in shade 1(8 ml) - I bought it because I needed a concealer and it was the only one that fit me. I didn't like it at all and would not buy it again.
  • L'Oreal Lumi Magique in shade 1 - When I first used it I loved it, but after some time it didn't look so nice on me :( I don't care for it and wouldn't buy it again.
  • Estee Lauder Pure Color lip gloss in 25 Parline Paradise - its one of my favorite glosses <3 Its a perfect nude shade and gives a gorgeous shimmer to the lips, plus it smells so good! I would buy it again :)

These are all the products I used up in October :) I'm always happy when I use up some of my makeup products it seems so hard to use them up :) I would love to know what products did you use up in October. Let me know in the comments below!


Thanks for reading! :)

Review: BE Creative Make Up Duo Blush


Hi loves! Happy Monday :D Hope you all are having great Monday so far! Today I'm sharing with you guys a blush duo (link) from BE Creative Make Up (2 x 2.0 g, 8.86 EUR). 


The 2 beauties come in black cardboard packaging and it is bit bulky. I like that it closes with magnet, so if I do decide to take it with me, when traveling, its safely closed and wont open :) Inside you find 2 beautiful baked blushes and a little mirror.


Inside you have brown nude shade blush and the other one is pink. They both are pigmented and shimmery, which scared me at first, but when you apply it to your cheeks it looks gorgeous. It gives a lovely glow and I like that I don't need to apply highlighter when I use one of these baked blushes. I do get more use out of the pink one at the moment, but on summer I'll be wearing a lot of the brown one as well. 

Its easy to blend them out and you don't have to worry that you'll apply too much and look like clown and freak everyone out ;) 

When it comes to staying power then I did need to reapply it through out the day, but not too often, only once :)  and there is no scent to it.


I'm happy with this little palette of 2 beautiful blushes and I'm impressed with the brand so far. I have tried their eye shadow quads as well and they are fantastic :) 


Have you tried anything from Be Creative Make Up before?


Thanks for reading! :)
