NOTD: Catrice - ARTful red (Viennart LE)

Catrice-viennart-artful-red

     Today I'm wearing this beauty on my nails. 

Catrice-viennart-artful-red



It is a darker red shimmer polish, and it is absolutely stunning! I lovelovelove it <3 It took two coats and easypeasy application! I've read a bunch of stuff online about Catrice brushes, but I have to say, I've had absolutely no problem with this one, it's even and it's easy to use. If you can still get this polish, I recommend it very much!

And did you see how cute the bottle is?? I love it, it became one of my favourited polishes immediately.

There were also other polishes in this collection, but this was the only one that caught my eye. There were white, silver/purple looking one and a dusty rose, which also migh be interesting for me.

As for the other stuff from this collection, the lipstick were interesting and maybe the blush, the eyeshadows(purple, brown and bronze) didn't steal my look ;)
I might show you the lipsticks in another post =)







Did you get anything from this limited edition? Did I miss something worth geting? Let me know ;)

Swatches & Review: Essence Wave Goddess blush tint Loose your heart on the board

essence-wave-goddess-blush-tint-loose-your-heart-on-the-board

I bought Essnece blush tint from Wave goddess limited edition a while ago. When I was looking at them in the store each and everyone of them has had a bad brush =/ I don't know if that is the way it's supposed to be or all of them are crooked. But I decided to take it anyway, hoping to manage the brush.

I'm not really a fan of orange colour, I wanted this to be more of the colour of promo photos. That's why I didn't buy it when this LE came out.

But what's funny is, that when I tried it, the colour was almost exactly like in the promo photos - pink, not orange.

I've had some problems when applying this, because I am used to applying blush with a blush brush.
essence-wave-goddess-blush-tint-loose-your-heart-on-the-board

With this one, you've had to apply it with a brush that comes with the brush and then blend the colour with you fingers . I'd say this is for more pale girls, since the colours is really nice and subtle.
I can see myself actually wearing this IF I'll get used to this kind of applying =)

What do you think? Do you like this? Do you have any blush tints? How do you normally apply your brush?

Review: Essence Love letters eyeshadow palette and Me&my ice cream lip balm

essence-love-letters-eyeshadow-pallete

Happy new year! My biggest wish of 2014 came true and I am writing this from my new home!! I am super happy about it, and even though last month was really exhausting, we made it. We cleaned the entire house and even refurnished some of the rooms. It is far from over, but it is already a home <3 AND we managed to have holidays as we wanted(with entire family and friends there). But my nails are a mess from all that cleaning =/
How did you spend your holidays?




I wanted to show you today my first buy of 2015 - both products are from old Essence limited
essence-me-and-my-ice-cream-lip-balm
editions, Love letters was last years "valentines" limited edition, it was available in January and February, and Me&my ice cream is from July 2013.
It's a funny story WHY I bought either of those. I have been looking for that palette from the beginning of October and there were none. But the sales lady told me she was going to Essence event later in October and if she'll see it she'll take it for me. I actually forgot about it, and I haven't seen her until a few days ago. I couldn't believe when she said she remembered about it and put the palette aside for me FROM OCTOBER! I was really surprised, and I have to say she really put a smile on my face for the rest of the day.
And I took the lip balm because my lips suck lately. Totally dry and painful, and since I was in a bit of a hurry I took the only lip balm they had that I haven't tried it yet.(Well, now I see I haven't missed much). - If you have any sugestions on which lip balm to try next,
PLEASE let me know. None of the ones I'm using right now is helping, so I'll be forever gratefull for good suggestions.

Now, let's see the pictures ;)

Essence Love letters eyeshadow palette is named 01 Ever thine, eve mine, ever ours. It comes in a plastic design and has 6 eyeshadow. Also one sponge applicator is included.

The eyeshadows are all shimmery and not all that opaque. Since I don't wear very bold make up, this is exactly what I wanted from this palette. The colors:

Shimmer orange pastel

Champagne shimmer











essence-love-letters-eyeshadow-pallete
Rose pastel shimmer











essence-love-letters-eyeshadow-pallete
Pale blue/grey shimmer

Brown/gold shimmer

Dark grey shimmer

Essence Me&my ice cream lip balm isn't my favourite. Well, actually I don't think I'll ever wear it again. The look of this is lovely pastel pink/green swirl, and the drawing on the packaging is cute, but, well, it smells kind of bad. It kind of smells like plasteline(think play doh), and unfortunatelly I cannot stand it. Luckily I payed only 1€ for this, so it's not such big of a loss ;)

I'm looking forward to all the products I will buy in 2015 ;)
