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.

Dior Diorshow New Look Mascara – Lash Multiplying Effect Volume & Care

10 Apr

Hello gorgeous!
Today I am going to review mascara. I had chance to get sample of  Diorshow New Look Mascara with Lash Multiplying Effect. I’ve been trying it out for couple weeks now and I am ready to share my opinion with you  🙂

Tube of it looks like this. 1,5 ml in sample size – enough for me to try 🙂
First of all – smell. It smells nice, doesn’t have cheap plastic smell, more like ‘waxy’ smell.
Secondly – wand. When I first looked at it, it seemed very regular rubber or latex wand, but then I noticed that it has weird looking tip. Bistles on the tip are smaller and placed less frequently.
It supose to be very unique brush that works only for this mascara (haven’t tried it with other mascaras), nano tehnology with ‘lash catcher’.
About formula – says that mascara has new formula with regenerating serum that provides special treatment to your lashes that makes them thicker and visibly multiplied.
I don’t know anything about nano thenology, but I feel like this mascara doest what it says. It gives volume and feels very luxurious on lashes.

                      before                                                 and                                                   after

Everything would seem so perfect, but I must addmit that I realy didn’t like this mascara. I realy tried to work with it, but still nothing. Just because durind the day mascara transfers to my lid. And noone likes that look. I don’t have very oily lids, it never happened with other mascaras. Even if I apply powder, eyeshadow base and eyeshadow on top of it, somehow this mascara still happens to get on my lid. When I tried to wear it without eyeshadow (only mascara and liner) I saw black marks on my skin already in one hour.

I can wear it only if I need to run out just for couple minutes to buy something. But who would buy Dior and spend $28.50 on mascara to make groceries?

Dior Diorshow Extase Mascara review

28 Mar

Hello gorgeous! Today I was inspired by Baiba and decided to review one of my favorite mascaras and this is Diorshow Extase. First of all – it looks amazing! 😀 I love this mirror silver packaging with lots of Dior Dior Dior prints on it 🙂

By manufacturer: Instant Oversize Volume Mascara. A revolutionary formula with spectacular plumping volume that glides over the lashes to coat them one by one. Enriched with Metamorphosis Powder and spherical black pearl pigments, it is specially designed to amplify lash volume and deliver deep intensity to the eyes in a single stroke. Inspired by the layers featured in dresses with spectacular volume, the brush with its exclusive couture design combines two types of fibers to coat and comb the lashes for guaranteed volume.

My thoughts: not only the packaging but the formula is also gorgeous. It is not too thick, not too runny – perfect! This mascara applies very well do no make any clumps and definitely won`t turn you lashes into spider legs 😀 

Mascara wand:

Diorshow Extase is avaliable in three colors: Brown Extase, Plum Extase and Black Extase. I have my mascara in Black Extase. I think Plum Extase is going to be irresistible!
And my eye naked:

And wearing Diorshow Extase:

To my mind this mascara gives both volumizing and lengthening effects. As I already mentioned Diorshow Extase is one my favorites and worth every penny (the RRP in Latvia is about 26 Ls ~52 $).
What is your favorite mascara?

My first Dior! Diorshow extase look – catwalk eye makeup

26 Nov
Hello gorgeous! Some time ago I got my first Dior makeup but have no time to write about it. So it is Saturday and sun trying to get through the clouds and my eyes cached this shiny silver box inside the commode.
I bought this set from Douglas shop for 23.60 Ls (about 46$). The set contains Diorshow extase mascara and mini 5-colour eyeshadow.  As I understand the mini eyeshadow palette came as a gift. This is how the packaging looks:
And from the other side:
Actually I still have not tried this one, so I do not have any comments about the mascara, but the packaging looks very chic and expensive.
The eyeshadow palette is quite small:

Inside (artificial light):

And daylight:
The eyeshadows are just amazing! They are very good pigmented, blend easily and have very nice creamy texture. They have this signature Diorish shimmer, but they are not frosty (I hate frosty eyeshadows) at all. The name of this palette is Stylish Move N970. I adore all the shades. 
Swatches (artificial light):
And daylight:
These are good both for day and night. All the colors are very nice, but taupe (left upper corner) and deep purple are my favorites!  

I think this set can be a great gift to a friend 🙂
