Perfection Anyone Can Afford

I am starting to feel a bit worried about my evolving habit of buying too many foundations, but I can't do anything about it than just share my experience and impression on them really. So my new pick is Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation which has been reviewed so many times... but as well as previous Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation I've reviewed this one was never the one to catch my eye in a drugstore so that's why I'm so late trying it out.

To find something not too pricey and to be a good quality is quite a challenge so I've accepted that challenge and after pretty disappointing experience with Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation I've decided to pick up Bourjois one.
My first imperssion was 'Yas, finally!'. The minute I've put it on my face I fell in love with it because of the smooth application and not cakey coverage it gave me which I was seeking all this time when searching for a perfect foundation. 

The shade I'm using is 52 Vanilla and I'm loving how this shade matches my skin complexion complimenting it with a gorgeous glow. I think this foundation is called Healthy Mix for a reason (winky face) haha. It really makes my dull skin look more radiant and healthy. It also stays all day unlike the Rimmel one. I had just few oily patches on my nose, chin and forehead as my skin is very oily in those places and I can't tackle this problem with anything.

After wearing this foundation for a few days I can definitely recommend it for others who are seeking flawless everyday look. Cheers to Bourjois for that foundation which is now my favourite one I will be definitely rebuying over and over again!

Rimmel Wake Me Up

I might be a bit behind times, but after seeing loads of other posts about this Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation I finally decided that this is about time to try it and share my experience with you. After I accidentally smashed my previous foundation I was kinda in a mood to try something new so I thought why don't I try this beauty bloggers' beloved one.

To be honest with you, I really love all the Rimmel products, but I'm not very amazed by this foundation as it doesn't meet my expectations of giving a natural looking skin. Maybe it's just my skin or the foundation actually brings out the flaws rather than covering it. The most eye catching thing in it is the glitter in it's consistency. When you apply it, it gives you that fresh sheer look which really makes you look more awake. The consistence is not very thick so you can use it everyday if you don't want that full coverage, but personally I prefer more thicker foundation to cover all the blemishes on the face. Basically it is for the girls who are lucky to have flawless skin, but want to make it look more awake and fresh.

What are your opinions on this? Is there anyone who tried and had the same experience as me?

Perfume Addiction

I'm so blessed to have my hand on this perfume recently! Now the story behind this purchase. I was strolling casually down the shop when I saw a beautiful stand with this new perfume and after having a few sprayings I was falling in love with them more and more with every minute.

Now the most difficult part... Describing the smell! When you first spray it, it has a very sweet smell and you can feel mostly fruity notes, but in a very subtle way. The middle notes are all white floral such as Chinese Jasmine, Peony and in the base notes you can really feel the muskiness what is always a big advantage for me when I'm buying a perfume. 

And of course, the most important thing which can be bothering most of the people - the longevity. To be honest, I believe the saying that if you find the right perfume for you, you can't really smell yourself and this is my case. I can feel the smell for like first 20 minutes and then it feels like it has disappeared, but even after few hours I receive compliments from people around me about my perfume being really nice. So I can say that this perfume is long lasting and you can even feel the smell on your clothes the next day.

So if there any sweet and fruity perfume addicts like me, you should definitely try this and if you think that sweet scents are only for young people, this one can deny all your thoughts because the sweetness is in this perfume unfolds in a very feminine and delicate way.

Hope you will like the smell as much as I do!

Flora by Gucci Perfume

I'm really picky when it comes to perfume so I'm really glad that I had a chance to try this amazing Gucci Flora Gorgeous Gardenia perfume. Even after the first spray I instantly fell inlove with it and I couldn't be more happier that after a long time I've found my staple fragrance. I'm really bad at describing smells, but I can say that this perfume is really fresh and at the same time sweet. It has notes of white flowers and a slight hint of pears.
Speaking about the price, it's not the cheapest one, but I honestly think it's worth the price because it really lasts all day long so you don't need to top up every half an hour. In my opinion this perfume is for everyone because it's not irritative and is really soft. Just love it!

Hair Care Empties

I've been trying a lot of products since I've chopped my hair off and just want to keep them as healthy as possible.

When my hair is still wet I really like to spray them with Gliss Kur Ultimate Repair conditioner for easier brush. Of course, while the hair is damp I brush them with wide tooth comb, otherwise it can cause a considerable damage. This conditioner really does wonders not only it helps to detangle my hair, but also it makes my hair look healthier and so smooth and silky. And the smell is divine. I can't even tell you how much I love this product! Already repurchased another bottle to replace it.

From time to time, I also use Keratin Oil which is amazing in making your hair feel soft and really weightless as it says on the bottle. It  really does help to tame frizzy and unruly hair like mine and it smells wonderful. I'm glad that I gave it a try and now I can enjoy much better looking hair.

VO5 frizz free creme is something that I keep repurchasing over and over again because it's exellent either in making your hairstyle look very sleek and done up and protecting your hair when blowdrying or straightening it. Also a big fan of VO5 products' smell. In my opinion smell really matters in hair products. I might be a little bit weird, but thats the way it is. Haha!

Recommending to try these products and I think it's about time for me to go shopping and grab a few bottles of them again!

What do you use on your hair?

Favourite Picks for the Face

To begin with, I want to share my love for my new discovery - Catrice All Matt Plus. It's an amazing consistency and a light coverage foundation which is totally buildable if you want it to be a bit heavier. I love it because it easilly goes on my face making it look flawless and not cakey at all and also it cancels out the redness of my face. As you can tell from the label, it has mattifying properties which is amazing for my skin because it can get really oily throughout the day. It does stay all day looking perfect and I really really love it!

After applying my foundation I usually put on my Manhattan Wake Up concealer to cover my undereye circles and spots if I have any that day. Really love the consistency of it and the application is really easy as it comes with doe foot applicator so I just dab it wherever I have any imperfections on my skin and I'm good to go! As it is a little bit ligher than my foundation it sometimes works as a highlighter for me.

Rimmel Stay Matt powder is a great cmpliment for these two. When I finally have my foundation and concealer on the powder come in handy. It just finishes all look making it look even more matt ( you can't get enough of matt on your skin haha). I usually put it in my bag if I need to top up throughout the day.

The Nudes | Maybelline New York

I had this pallete for a few months now and, to be honest, I'm quite enjoying it so far. My mom's cousin (don't know who is she for me, like my aunt or something? Let me know haha) got me this palette as a gift when she came back to visit us in Lithuania. I tried it right away and with a lot of hopes for this to work really well I was slightly disappointed bacause of pigmentation. Thoses shades are really gorgeous, but they are so light and soft when applied. But beside this you can really make it work when doing your everyday makeup for subtle and soft look. There are just two shades (the darkest two on the right) which could add a little bit of color pop on your eyes and quite a few matt and shimmery colors which looks amazing combined together. So, all things considered, it's really lovely pallete to have your hands on. 

What is your everyday makeup picks for the eyes?

Face of the Day

Just wanted to show you my makeup for today. We are having girls' night in just watching movies and having some fun so I went for subtle and soft look with light pink on the whole eyelid and a tiny bit of light brown shade in the corners of my eyes. For lips I chose my Catrice lip laquer. I'm inlove with this shade. Such an amazing color for daytime.

What are your plans for the weekend? :)

Favourite Everyday Mascara

So, recently I went shopping and stopped in a drugstore. As you can say from my previuous blog posts, I'm a huge fan of drugstore products because most of them are so lovely and really great value for money. This time I decided to buy this beauty. Everyone was talking about this L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes mascara long long time ago and I know, I was living under the rock not trying it out. But, finally, I'm here spreading the love for this one. 
As I have really short, stubby eyelashes, this is bloody amazing! First of all, it doesn't leave you with those weird clumpy eyelashes looking more like a spider legs and second, the applicator does really make your eyelashes look longer and, definitelly, the eyes look much bigger and brighter. Just one drawback for me that the color of this mascara is brown. As always wasn't aware of buying the wrong color mascara. Silly me. But, actually, I find it really gorgeous when applied in day time when you don't need such a bold look.

What mascara do you use on your daily basis?
