Review: Kevyn Aucoin The Liquid Airbrush Foundation


Hi beauties! Sometime ago I ordered online a Kevyn Aucoin The Liquid Airbrush Foundation and I got it in shade LQ05 (20 ml, 38 EUR). 


The packaging of this foundation is gorgeous. I love the simple, yet stylish packaging and what I like even more is that it comes with a pump.


The shade I got is perfect match for me, which surprised me, because I ordered it online and I almost never find my match when it comes to foundations. Also the fact that there is only 4 shades available on Beautybay.com

The foundation blends into the skin easily and its meant for normal to oily skin type. The coverage it gives is medium. I noticed when I have break outs or blemishes it doesn't cover them all up, so I need to go in with a concealer, which is fine by me.

I have also noticed when I apply it with my beauty blender I get a lighter application, but with the brush it gives more coverage.

The time I have used it, it never got cakey on me, which is a huge plus for me. It feels light wight on skin and I love the semi-satin finish it has. 

It stays on me better then some of the other foundations I own. I did notice it wore off around my mouth area, but surprisingly around forehead and around my nose it stayed put. I also noticed I didn't get as oily, which really surprised me. 

Here is a video, where you can see how it applied with a beauty blender. Now I'm thinking I should have done the other side of my face with brush. I'll try to do it next time :) 



Overall I think its fantastic foundation. I would like to get 30 ml in the bottle, but what can you do. I'm not 100% sure if I would buy it again when its over, I guess time will tell. Its not because I don't think its good, more like I want to try other foundations :P


If you are interested in this gorgeous foundation, you can find it here.



Have you tried anything from Kevyn Aucoin?

Review: Avon Ultra Color Indulgence Lipsticks


Hi beauties! By now you guys know I like Avon lipstick and when they come out with something new I kind of need to get my hands on them :D So I picked up 3 of their Ultra Color Indulgence lipsticks in shade Daffodil Petal, Hibiscus and Red Tulip (3 g). These are not that new anymore though, but still new to me.


These beauties come in a sleek black lipstick tube with a silver ring around it. I like this packaging more then the traditional lipstick packaging they have. I feel like it takes up less space.

The middle name should be Daffodil Petal

All 3 colors are gorgeous and bright. The color pay off is amazing! The formula of these is creamy and one might think it  means these are not going to stay on long, but they do. Not as long as some of my long lasting lipstick, but after eating the color was almost all there. It did wear off a bit in the middle of the lips. 

It feels very comfortable to wear on lips, because of the formulation. It with hydrating gel and is free of heavy waxes. 

The finish of these is more to the glossy side. Its not really glossy, but there is sheen to them. I personally like the finish for this time of the year.


I think these are fantastic lipsticks and with Avon you can always get them with a good price. I think I got one with 3.99 EUR when I was in Estonia. 


Have you tried these Avon lipsticks?

Review: Flormar Color Palette Eye Shadow


Hi beauties! Hope you all are having great week! I have been ill these couple of days, so that's why I haven't posted anything. I actually wanted to get this post up on Monday, but was unable to do so :( Anyway today I have for you a gorgeous palette from Flormar and its their Color Palette Eye Shadow. I have it in shade 06 Pink Desserts (9 g). I have tried their quads in the past and they have had amazing quality, so I had high hopes for this 5 shadow palette as well and I can already say I'm not disappointed ;)


The shadows come in a black plastic compact, which is partially clear, so you'll be able to see the eye shadows. Also it came with a brush, which I have manage to lose. The packaging is compact and thin, which makes it perfect for traveling, but you might want to take some matte shades with you ;)


All shadows in this palette are shimmery and pigmented. Its easy to blend these out and they also work well with other shadows from different brands. 

I like the selection I get in this palette. I can create day time look and turn it easily into evening look. I can't get over how buttery these shadows feel and the staying on power is amazing. I didn't have any creasing in the evening and the shadows didn't look dull in the end of the day either. 

Here is a GRWM using this Flormar palette and the Bourjois trio (review). I hope you guys like this eye look :)



I think its a great palette for someone who likes color. I would have liked to have some matte shades in ti. I can't really complain, because the shadows are amazing and Flormar products are always so affordable.


Have you tried any of their eye shadows?

Review: Bourjois Nude Smokey


Hi beauties! I'm obsessed with my nude shadows, so it was no brainier for me to pick up Bourjois Nude Smokey eye shadow trio in shade 20 Sable Show (2.3 g, 12.14 EUR).


The 3 shadows come in a clear compact. I like that I can see the shadows I have and its small enough for me to take it with me when traveling. 

In the compact you have a little applicator, which I have tossed already and 3 beautiful shadows. There is one matte and the other two are shimmer.

All 3 shadows feel very buttery and creamy to the touch. They match well together and Its so easy to work with these. Its dream to blend these and I wish all the eye shadows I own would blend like these do :D



My favorite shade out of the 3 is the gold one. Its just so gorgeous and I like to wear it all over the lid, when I use this trio on its own, but it looks good in the inner corner as well. I plan to do a look where I'll be using this golden shade.

As I expected these shadows stayed put all day with out creasing. Also this trio didn't irritate my eyes. One of their mascaras I used in the bast did irritate my eyes, so I'm always afraid to try their eye products. 


I think its a gorgeous trio with very wearable shadows, which feel amazing and preform even better. I'm happy I got it and it has been my go to eye shadow trio.



Have you tried this trio from Bourjois?

Review: Clarins Fix' Make-up


Hi beauties! I finished up my previous makeup setting spray and was looking a new one. I didn't want to get the same, so I ended up getting one from Clarins and its their Fix' Make-up Refreshing Mist Long lasting Hold (30 ml, 25.88 EUR).


It comes in a glass bottle and feels very luxurious. You can smell the rose scent right away when you take the cap off. Its not a scent I usually go for, but here it smells like real roses and I absolutely love it :)


How to Use:

Shake well before use. Close the eyes and spray on face using circular movements at a distance of 30 cm.



I did feel it kept my makeup on longer then usual, but it didn't keep me matte all day long. I do have a oily skin, so that might be the reason or I'm asking too much from my makeup fixing spray :P

The mist itself is fine and feels so nice on skin. When I spray it on skin it feels so refreshing and I love the rose scent. I like to spray it through out the day to refresh my skin and it takes away all my oiliness. It doesn't make me matte, but I'm not a oil face :)

Also the formula is dermatologist and ophthalmologist tested.


Its a pricey number and I'm not sure, if I would buy it again, because I have used up already more then half the bottle. I might pick it up again as a award, when I don't buy any makeup :D overall I think its a fab face mist, if you are looking something to pamper yourself. 


If you are interested in this lovely spray, you can find it here.


Have you tried this mist from Clarins before?

Review: Star Crush Minerals Eye Shadow Vol. 5


Hi beauties! I have reviewed Star Crush Minerals eye shadows on my blog many times and I feel the need to share some new shades with you guys :) I have 14 new eye shadows to add to my growing collection and they are all amazing :D

Here is the link to the first review I did on their shadows. All the info where to get these eye shadows you'll find down below.


Here are all the shadows and I have only good things to say about these shadows. These are super pigmented and blend out easily. Lasting power is amazing. These look in the evening as good as they did in the morning. I'm super happy with these. 

The only down side working with these is that they are loose eye shadows and it can be messy. That's why it took me so long to get to these. Now I'm kicking myself for waiting so long, because there are so many new shades and I have found my all time favorite eye shadow shade. It has never happened to me before. 

On the picture 106 should be 108, but the name is correct (sorry)

  • 222 Aphrodite - is a matte beige shade, which is a great crease color. 
  • 200 Luscious - is also a matte shadow, but its lighter then Aphrodite.
  • 114 The Great Pumpkin - is a orange shade, with green shimmer in it. Beautiful!
  • 108 Jade Sunrise - is my all time favorite shadow! Love it! It looks beautiful all over the lid <3 It looks like light peachy pink, but it has light green sheen to it. I might need to order more of it :D
  • 227 Amber Glow - is a matte rusty orange shade, which I like to use in the crease to give it some color.


  • 20 Orbit - is described on their page as matte dark purple shade, but I could say its almost black.
  • 260 Dark Flow - is a black shadow, with shimmer to it.
  • 142 Red Blackberry - is a darker purple shade, with gold and red shimmer in it.
  • 259 Falling Star - is a pinkish red shade with lot of glitter in it. So gorgeous!
  • 254 Zombie Star - is a gorgeous metallic purple. The picture is not doing it justice. I might need to do a makeup look with it, so you guys can see how beautiful it really is.


  • 258 Sapphire Space Bubbles - is a bright blue shadow, with a lot of shimmer to it.
  • 35 Neptune Star - is green shadow, with the most beautiful shimmer to it.
  • 48 Maroon Matte - like the name says its maroon matte shadow, which I adore :)
  • 261 Cosmic Field - is a lighter green shadow, with shimmer in it. Another gorgeous shade. 


These are all the shadows I'll be adding to my collection. I hope you enjoyed this post and if you want to see any of these shadows in action let me know in the comments below :)
