TOP 2 Body Shop Products

As you know all my life  I’ve been very lucky  with my skin, no teenage acne, only a few spots here and there from eating too much junk, not drinking enough water …the usual. So using the right beauty products just help feel more pampered.

THE BODY SHOP SHEA EAU DE TOILETTE

To me, the smell of this perfume is the smell of summer. The Eau De Toilette actually lasts a long time on my skin and its such an affordable option. I can feel it on me all day long having used it in the morning.

THE BODY SHOP SHEA LIP BUTTER

Guys, I cannot say enough how good this product smells like. It’s totally heavenly! Too bad it didn’t taste anything like that. Well, obviously butter moisturizes more than the usual lip balm.

Lady’s  summer essentials 

Hey beauties! Hope you are all having a great summer so far! This is a quick review of NYX Sweet Cheeks Blush Palette.

Last week I found this amazing present waiting for me and the fact is I really needed a blush palette.

 I have always wanted makeup from NYX and this one comes with eight blushes! Yes eight- pink, peachy, coral, nude tones. There are 3 blushes with shimmer and the other 5 are matte. The powders are very pigmented and creamy and the colors are simple and basic. It’s a great palette to have, especially if you are just starting to use makeup.

Thank you Gogo Vogi for this amazing gift💋

Cosmetics are a girls best friend!

No diamonds! I think all of us prefer a big vanity case filled with makeup, concealer, lipsticks and mascaras! So, today I will be reviewing The Falsies Push-up drama mascara by Maybelline New York and a Matte Lipstick by Seventeen( #47) .

Mascara
The packaging is very aesthetic and this is what has made the product so hyped. The application is amazing, my lashes look natural but darker and super voluminous. I love the wand  cause it elongates and separates lashes so good like you are wearing natural looking fake lashes.
Tips: If you don’t have naturally curl lashes,then I do recommend using an eyelash curler before using the mascara.

Lipstick
Love at First Apply! Haha Matte Lasting Lipstick number 47 is my favorite lipstick so far. This pink-light violet lip shade is SO HOT and wearable. The lipstick is smooth,matte, parabens free and has SPF 15.Whatever you’ll be wearing, this lipstick is going to make you look damn hot! I dare you!

 I’ve been using for 2 weeks now the Nivea Micellar Cleaner. It’s a great cleaner to remove make up and dirt from your face. It is budget friendly and my skin looks refreshed after the apply.
Tips: Press slightly to your eyelids for a few seconds before you rub, to avoid early wrinkles around your eyes.

 After my skin is cleaned, I use Diadermine Tonic Facial Hydration.  This product works amazing for me. My skin looks refreshed, renewed and actually  glowing . This toner is a essential  to moisturize your skin especially if you spend a lot of time outdoors and in the sun.

Last but not least, I apply Johnson’s Hydrating 24hr Day Crème with SPF 15, that leaves your skin beautifully soft. What I love most about this crème is the smell-it’s smells like summer!

My Skin-care Routine

Recently, I realized how much my lifestyle affects the way my skin looks. The key for a healthy skin is a combination of prevention and maintenance : propert diet, drink plenty of water, sleep well, remember to take off your make up every night. From personal experience, fruits,vegetables and water (plenty of water!) are essential to your diet. Also, exclude dairy from my diet actually works for me and my skin looks a lot better!

Next step for a stunning skin is to use the right beauty products on regural basis! I mean it girls, every day, no exceptions! So, I wanted to talk to you about a product I recently included in my daily skin routine.

The product I’m currently using is L’Oreal Triple Active Day cream. What I like about this one is that it has a wonderful moisturising effect without feeling heavy or greasy. Also, It’s not too thick and easy to apply and blend into your skin. Normally, I apply it  to a freshly cleansed face  (great fresh smell) as a base before applying my foundation.

5 NYX PRODUCTS FOR YOUR MAKE-UP LOOK

20170327_144302.jpg

You probably know that lip colour happens to be a huge obsession of mine. So I will start off with a brown nude Matte Lipstick from NYX (#29). It’s creamy, long-lasting and I love the way It can take your make up from day to a glam night look. If you love matte lips then you will love this one.

As a woman I spend hours experimenting with different colours, products and looks. I take this opportunity to talk about my favourite product lately. I’m using a NYX Eye Shadow Base : Skin Tone. This is a creamy, skin tone product designed to provide a base for your eyeshadow and make it last a very long time. It is also available in two other shades : White & Pearl. It’s easy to apply and perfectly blend with natural shadows.

Next product is a NYX roll on Shimmer #01 GREEN. This is a product designed to provide fun looks, especially night out looks and roll easily onto eyes, face & body. The best part of this product is that it has a roll on applicator that makes the application easier. These NYX roll on Shimmers pop a lot more with matchy eyeshadow colours.

Over the years I realised that nothing transforms a face quite like eyebrows do. I have fairly thin eyebrows, which wasn’t a problem until the fuller brows came in style. So, eyebrow powder is my must have makeup essential nowadays. Lately, I am using the NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder Dark Brown, witch is available in six different shades. The product includes wax, slanted brush and a round wand to shape & style eyebrows. I don’t really use the brushes cause they are not really handy and the wax make the eyebrows look too shiny. Also, the wax quantity should have been more, cause it’ll finish out before the powders.

The NYX Control Freak Eyebrow Gel is the most important part in my eyebrow routine. What I love about this product is once my brows are set with it, they don’t move. When you pull it out of tube, It’s really cleaning a lot of that gel off the brush. It dries quickly and provides you the right amount of product each time.

MY FAVOURITE PALETTE THIS FALL

I thought It would be a good idea to give you my best overall opinion about my latest purchase. I’ve been using for the past three weeks the NYX ULTIMATE SHADOW PALETTE-COOL NEUTRALS. 

It’s a very good affordable option, within 16 cool toned shades- 11 matte shades. They glide on the eye nicely, last all day and the blend It’s beautiful. There are four to choose : WARM NEUTRALS-COOL NEUTRALS – SMOKEY & HIGHLIGHT – BRIGHTS – so everyone will be happy!
