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.

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 🙂

NYX soft matte lip cream review and swatches

19 Aug

Hi gorgeous!
This is my first entry and today i gonna review NYX soft matte lip creams 🙂
What NYX says about this product: Neither lipstick nor lip gloss—this is matte lip cream. A new kind of pout paint that goes on silky smooth and sets to a matte finish. Soft Matte Lip Cream is surprisingly durable and, unlike some matte lipstick formulas, also moisturizing. Available in 11 lip colors.

I bought these from beautyjoint.com these are $4.50 each and hold 6.5g of product. It is a very interesting product. Goes on really smothly and leaves my lips mousturised. It is very hard to choose colors from NYX website swatches, because they are totally different! I`ve got (from left to right) 05 Antwerp, 08 San Paulo and 01 Amsterdam.
Here are the swatches unblended:

and blended:

I preffer lip brush to apply these lip creams as using lip brush they stay longer on the lips and also look better (to my mind). I don`t like how red color (Amsterdam) fades, as it come into little folds and look creepy 🙂 As these lipsticks are matte tehay beacome very wearable for everyone. If you want to try wearing red lipstick better start with matte one as it will nt look such dramatic as glossy ones.
