High end makeup favorites/Luksus kosmētikas favorīti

22 Apr
Hello gorgeous! Some time ago I wrote about my budget friendly makeup favorites. Today I am going to share my “high end” makeup favorites which I think are worth to invest to.

Sveikas, daiļās! Nesen rakstīju par budžetam draudzīgiem kosmētikas favorītiem, bet šodien pastāstīšu par, tā sauktiem, “dārgā gala” favorītiem. Šeit ir apkopota kosmētika, kura, manuprāt, ir vērta savas cenas 🙂
  • YSL Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain in #12 Corail Fauve. Ideāls lūpu spīdums. Labi pigmentēts un nav lipīgs.
  • Dior Diorific lipstick (Grand Bal collection) in #040 Marilyn. Klasiska lūpukrāsa skaistā tonī. ļoti komfortabla uz lūpām.
  • YSL Rouge Volupte in #11 Rose Culte. Šo iegādājos pēc sajūsmas par YSL Rouge Volupte Shine. Un arī smu sajūsmā 🙂
  • YSL Rouge Volupte Shine in #4 Rougle in Danger. Par šo lūpukrāsu esmu sajūsmā 🙂 Labi pigmentēta, izcili mitrina un satriešo izskatās. Arī dramatiskais sarkanais tonis ir ideāls priekš manis.
  • Chanel Poudre Universelle Libre in #25 Peche Clair. Labs pūderis ikdienai. Nemanāms viegls klājums. Nav nedz trģiski matēts, nedz arī spīdīgs. Izskatās ļoti dabiski.
  • Benefit Confessions of a Concealaholic kit. Ļoti patīk Erase Paste (tumšiem lokiem zem acīm) un Boi-ing konsīleri.
  • Benefit Boi-ing concealer in #01. Ideāls konsīleris pumpām un apsārtumiem.
  • Too Faced Shadow Insurance. Super acu ēnu bāze. Ēnas turās visu dienu un nesakrājas krociņās.
  • Benefit Moon Beam highlighter. Izskatās vienkārši satriecoši. Piešķir ļoti veselīgu āda izskatu.
  • Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow in Skinny Jeans. Turās visu dienu. Viegli iztušējas. Skaists tonis.
  • MUFE Camouflage Cream Palette. Lieliski konsīleri, ideāla noturība, turklāt, vairāku toņu palete ļauj sajaukt krāsas, lai dabūtu savu ideālo toni 🙂
  • MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack. Labs laineris. Nav ne pārāk šķidrs, ne arī pārāk ciets. Labi klājas un labi turās.
  • BareMinerals Flawless Definition Volumizing mascara in Black. Mana visu laiku mīļākā tuša. Piešķir labu apjomu, nebirst un neizsmērējas. Arī nomazgājas pilnībā (man riebjas būt rīta pandai).
  • Chanel long lasting eyeliner in Beryl. Turās visu dienu. Skaists tonis.
  • Payot stick couvrant purifiant. Kaut kas pa visu starp konsīleri un pretpumpu līdzekli, bet ļoti iderabrīgs cīņā ar pumpām. Lielisks līdzeklis cīņā ar pumpām.
  • TheBodyShop eyeshadow in #04. Skaists tonis. Laba noturība. Ļoti viegli iztušējamas ēnas.
  • Urban Decay deluxe eyeshadow in Ruthless. Arī ļoti skaists tonis un laba noturība.Un arī viegli iztušējamas ēnas.
  • Dior 5 Couleurs – 5-Colour Eyeshadow in #970 Stylish Move. Skaisti toņi, laba noturība.
  • Chanel Blush Duo Tweed Effect in #30 Tweed Rose. Ļoti skaists vaigu sārtums no rudens 2012 kolekcijas. Atrodas ideālā bilancē starp matētu/spīdīgu. Piešķir ļoti veselīgu toni vaigu ar izgaismojuma efektu.

Budget friendly makeup favorites – Budžetam draudzīgas kosmētikas favorīti

7 Apr
Hello gorgeous! I wanted to make a kind of “What is in my purse” post, but there are too many items 🙂  So I decided to pick some items which are in my everyday makeup purse. I divided them into luxury makeup and budget friendly 🙂 So today about budget friendly makeup 🙂 See my favorites listed below the picture 🙂
Sveikas, daiļās! Gribēju uztaisīt rakstiņu “Kas ir manā kosmētikas maciņā”, bet sapratu, ka kosmētikas maks man ir liels un, patiesībā, tie ir veseli 3 + vēl pāris groziņi + vēl daudz kas mētājās pa māju tāpat. Tāpēc izdomāju uzrakstīt par to, kas ir manā “ikdienas” kosmētikas maciņā (šis maciņš man stāv mājās un apkārt to visu sev līdzi nestaipu 🙂 . Lietiņas izdomāju sadalīt “budžetam draudzīgās” un “luksus” klasēs. Šodien stāstu par budžetam draudzīgām lietiņām:
  • Sleek Blush By 3 – Lace. Ļoti pigmentēti un skaisti sārtumi 🙂
  • Revlon lip butter – #70 Cherry Tarte. Mitrinoša lūpu krāsa/balzāms, kas piešķir lūpām sārtu toni 🙂
  • Catrice Liquid lip tint – Are You Red-y? Lietoju kā vaigu sātrumu. Turās visu dienu 🙂
  • Bourjois Healthy Mix – 52 Vanilla. Jau vairākas par šo rakstīju. Ļoti patīk. Viegla tekstūra, nemanāms uz ādas, kopjošās īpašības. Dievīgi smaržo.
  • Catrice eyeshadow – #350 Starlight Expresso. Must have tonis. Der gan acīm, gan sejas skulpturēšanai.
  • Catrice eyeshadow – #340 Oops…Nude Did It Again! Arī must have tonis 🙂
  • Elf Maximum coverage concealer – Sand. Labs konsīleris. Tonis “sand” man ir nedaudz pa tumšu, bet labi maskē apsātrumus un tumšos lokus.
  • Sleek I-divine palette – Au Naturel. Laba palete ikdienas acu grimam un uzacīm 🙂 Kvalitāte nav izcila, bet, es teiktu, ļoti laba priekš savas cenas. Toņi ideāli ikdienai.
  • Maybelline Color Tattoo – #30 Pomegranate Punk. Ideāls “streločku” veidošanai.
  • Maybelline Color Tattoo – #35 Tough as Taupe. Skat. iepriekšējo punktu 🙂
  • NYX Cream blush – #5 Glow. Labi klājas. Turās visu dienu. Foršas krāsas. Forša cena. Katru reizi ņemot rokā – pasmaidu. Kapēc? Skaties zemāk 🙂
  • BeYu Hydro Star Volume Lipstick – #426 Golden Rosewood. Tas ir mans “nude” tonis. Varu lietot bez spoguļa 🙂 Šo lūpukrāsu nēsāju līdzi vienmēr. Tā ir komfortabla uz lūpām, bet nekādas dižas kopjošās īpašības viņai nepiemīt.  
Mana nepiedienīgā jautrība par NYX sārtumu 🙂 Atverot iepakojumu, paveras uzraksts, ko bieži var manīt uz žogiem un ēkām:

Vai esat mēģinājušas kaut ko maniem budžetam draudzīgiem favorītiem? Kā patika? Kas ir tavos “budžeta” favorītos? Var būt par kādu no favorītiem gribi “dziļāku” aprakstu?
P.S. neaizmirsti piedalīties manā gieveaway.

My concealers. 5 Camouflage Cream Palette review

19 Apr

Hello gorgeous! I am very sorry, but I`ve been very busy for couple weeks 😦
Today  I am going to show you one of my favorite concealers 🙂 (OK not one but 5 🙂 I think I will make kind of cycle “My concealers”. First going to be Make up for ever 5 Camouflage cream palette.

From manufacturer:
Thanks to their dense texture, the Camouflage Cream Palettes allow any type of correction. Highly concentrated in pigments, they are perfect for covering dark spots and other skin blemishes and unifying the complexion, even when wearing light make up. The natural shades are especially effective to hide dark circles or puffy eyes, pigment stains and scars. The corrective shades conceal hyper-pigmented areas. The 5 Camouflage Cream Palettes have been designed to suit all skin types.
I own palette  #1 for European skin.

As you can see palette holds 5 shades (5 x 2g = 10g of product). 4 skin tones and green. And I think this makes the palette to stand out among the other concealers. If you can not find the right shade for you – here is a solution!
The texture is quite heavy but all the concealers blend easily when applied with warm fingers. If you prefer using brush I would suggest first to put a little amount on the back of your hand ant then apply it to the face (using brush). This concealers have amazing coverage! It is better to build up the coverage (instead of putting a thick layer at once). You can achieve a really flawless look with these. These concealers are not good for under eye area as they are quite thick and will come into fine lines. But the palette is perfect for the face. Using it you can cover blemishes, redness, and even blue veins. I think this is a good make up product to invest to. You will get 5 shades you can mix to get the right color even if you skin shade changes (like winter to summer I mean 🙂 Also concealers have good staying power.
Now to the colors:

No 11 Porcelain – the lightest shade in the palette. it is very light (even for my very light skin tone) and has neutral undertone
No 13 Light Beige – second light shade. It has a bit more pink undertone. And as you can see this color suits me better than the others 🙂 

No 14 Yellow Beige – I would say this shade is similar to the previous one in lightness/darkness, but this one has visible yellow undertone which is amazing for covering redness.

No 15 Golden Beige – It is hard to characterize 🙂 I can not say that this is just a dark color. It is ORANGE. really orange. Sometimes I use this as a bronzer or blusher 🙂

No 17 Green – is green 🙂 is blends very well and conceals redness very well 🙂 

And here are the swatches (bottom line) L-R No 11, No 13, No 14, No 15, No 17

The price is 22.00 Ls (~ 45 $). And think this palette is totally worth it 🙂 By the way you can buy all the colors individually for 12.70 Ls (7g).

Tag – If all my makeup disappeared

19 Feb

Hello gorgeous!
Today I decided to do something more fun. Basically this tag is about what I would do if all my makeup would disappear. 10 things I would repurchase first. I think this tag perfectly shows what are 10 things I reach out for on daily bases. Kind of my must haves 🙂
So let’s start!
The first one would be a foundation. My favorite one is Healthy Mix by Bourjois. It gives me confident the days when I feel that my skin is not in the best condition, it brings a nice radiance to my skin.
The packaging:

and blended:

The second thing I would repurchase would be my concealer. This thing perfectly helps to hide all my blemishes and dark circles, when I feel that I didn’t have enough sleep. Also the same brand – Healthy Mix by Bourjois, just one shade lighter than my foundation to make my under eye area brighter.

blended:
Next product would be my Too Faced Naked eye palette. I seriously don’t know how I could live without it. It’s everything I use it for everyday make up. Also sometimes I use these colors for night-out. I think you can see my favorite and most used colors form the picture. 🙂 The palette came with small brush (angled brush and applicator on the other side) which I am using  for filling in my eyebrows. I use Like A Virgin color for this purpose. So for me it’s like 3 in 1, because of the brush and eyeshadow I use for the brows.

The brush:
As I started to talk about eye shadows I must admit that I can’t live without eyeshadow base or primer. Without it I just feel that shadows are not the right color, they don’t stay on my lids at all. So base for me is a must. The one I would repurchase would be Eyeshadow base by NYX number 03 (skin tone). It smells little bit strange (like an old lady), but I feel that it does the job!
I tried to make a swatch, but it totally blends in with my skin tone, so it was impossible to see it on the picture.
This is not a make up product, but I believe it still counts as one, because I use it for applying make up. Nothing else but blending brush 217 by MAC. I feel like any kind of comment on this brush would be unnecessary. I think every girl should own this one!

Another product I found is a must for me, is my fluidline in Blitz&Glitz by MAC. I am seriously using this product 6 days out of 7. It glides on so smooth and I never had problem with taking it off, although it stays on for ever. 
Swach on my hand

Next two would be my all time favorite lip products. First one is lip stick by Russian company called Mia. Oh My God! This is the second one. I repurchased this in the same color. I just love it soooo much! The consistency, the scent and color it’s just perfect. It has glossy finish, but color itself is something in between pink and nude.
And the second one – Glam Shine Reflection lip gloss by L`oreal in color Sheer Grenadine. I use this when I feel that my face looks too boring and pale, this product gives just perfect hint of red on my lips. It instantly brightens up my face. I can’t tell that it’s not sticky at all, but it’s definitely not crazy sticky. Feels very moisturizing on my lips. Love it! 
 swatches on my skin:
The next product is 2 in 1. It is Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder by Elf. Beautiful blush and very pigmented bronzer. I believe you can see how much love it was just by amount I used it. The quality is just amazing and the price…. I believe I paid around 3£ for it. Seriously?  Must have all year around. Who doesn’t like healthy glow? 
swatches on my hand:

And the last one. It’s eye pencil by Bourjois in number 81 (Bleu Virtuose). Perfect to add a pop of color on the waterline or lower lash line. Specially if you have brown eyes like me. Amazing color, amazing quality and last up to 16 hours. ( Although I never tried wearing my make up so long)
Swatch. Don’t you love the color? 

I hope you enjoyed and had fun reading this one. Have a lovely week 🙂
P.S. just wanted to make a note, that this post is written by my sister (so you can see skin color difference 🙂
