Empties #1

I'm back again with a whole bunch of empty products that I wanna show you :) Enjoy!






Naomi Campbell: At night (Eau de toilette) sample – I was pleasantly suprised with this one. It's a very sweet scent with a lot of sandalwood and vanilla. However, it didn't last on me very long, maybe about 2 hours… I don't know if it is just because it's a sample or…

Purchase: Probably not. The price is pretty high for a perfume that doesn't last long.


Christina Aguilera: Red sin (Eau de parfum) sample – this one smells sweet, but nothing new or different. Also doesn't last at all.

Purchase: No, not worth my money.





Avon Glimmerstick Diamonds eye liner in Black Ice – The shade of the eye liner is Black Ice which is a glimmery version of black. The sparkle isn't quite what I hoped for, however it does give you a pretty effect. It also stays on really well and doesn't smudge.

Repurchase: I already did, but in a different shade, Spacey Silver.






Oriflame Tender Care Protecting Balm (Vanilla) – I love it!  I use it on lips and on elbows when my skin is dry.

Repurchase: Already did, but in Coconut.




Balea Dry Deospray – This is probably the 4th or 5th bottle I've used. I always repurchase it because it really works for me. However, I use it with Deo Roll-on. It also smells nice, doesn't contain alcohol and it's very cheap!

Repurchase: Already did.


Balea Deo Roll-on – I'm using it in combination with deospray, and so far it seems to work perfectly for me, so I keep repurchasing it :D




Ebelin Nail polish Remover – my favourite nail polish remover. Does the job great and the very important thing is that it is cheap, because I go through sooo many bottles :D

Repurchase: Definitely.


Afrodita Chamomila Nail polish Remover –didn't liked the smell of it.

Repurchase: Nop.




Avon Nail Experts Liquid Freeze Quick Dry Nail Spray – I thought I give this a try some time ago and it changed my life forever haha :D No, really, it changed my nail polish routine quite a lot :D After about 30 seconds my nails are completely dry and fine to touch. On the other hand it feels greasy. But I would recommend this to everyone!

Repurchase: Always!




Essence Studio Nails Pro white Hardener – This actually worked and it also made my nails look brighter.

Repurchase: Maybe


Essence Gel-Look Topcoat – Well this is not as glossy as advertised and it became thick soon after I purchase it.

Repurchase: No.

Essence Sealing Topcoat – Did a great job until it became too thick :/

Repurchase: Probably not.


Well, that's all for my first empties post :) 
XOXO,
Katja

Hi!
Today I'll show you what I bought from Avon in Campaign 11. 
I have limited myself to buying only two things so I had a hard time choosing :D





1. Nail Expert Hydrate & Grow– 6ml; 2.50€






I actually bought this one because I read so many great reviews.

This is a  Growth boosting treatment, with Pro Vitamin B5, Vitamin C, baobab and acacia extracts to hydrate. Avon claims this treatment gives you longer, stronger feeling nails in just 5 days.
It has an applicator like a normal lipgloss and you just massage the treatment into your nails and cuticles.

On the Avon site this product has an average customer rating of 4,9 out of 5.

I'm not using it long enough to say anything, but I'll definitely make a review in the future.




2. Glimmerstick Diamonds eye liner in Spacey Silver – 2.50€









This is an eye liner in Spacey Silver. That's a black colour with silver glitter in it. It looks so pretty!




I had one of those Glimmerstick Diamonds eye liners, but in a different shade and was very pleased with it.

They last long, don't smear and give just the right amount of glitter without going overboard. I would definitely recommend this if you don't want just a standard eye liner.





Well, that's all for this campaign :)
Take care,
Xoxo,Katja

Hello! Today I'll show you things that I bought past few days. They are mostly from Essence, and were all on sale :)

Let's start.








1. Essence kajal pencil n. 24 Pretty in fuchsia; 0,99€



Well this pencil is discontinued now, so I got it for only 0,99€. I bought it mostly because of the colour, it's so pretty and I never had a similar one.


Essence says it is long – lasting, however I haven't tried it yet, so I can't really say anything about that. 





2. Essence XXXL shine lipgloss  n. 24 Just georgeous; 5 ml - 0,99€



Also discontinued is this XXXL shine lipgloss. The colour of this is absolutly amazing and it is soooo pigmented. I actually  expected glitter in it, but it turned out that this one doesn't contain them and I was even happier than before:P



The applicator is thin and longer than usual so it makes application quick and easy. The scent is also nice, fruit and sweet at the same time, but nothing too unnatural. It's also very glossy and moisturizing. Overall, a very good product, I think I'll probably try some other colours too :)




3. Essence Colour & go nail polish n. 178 Hello spring!; 8 ml -  0,99€




This nail polish is also discontinued.  It's a lovely colour, very pretty.  I don't have a swatch yet, but I will post it soon, probably on NOTD post.




4. Balea Street Art Deo-Body spray; 150 ml - 0,79€




Well I needed a new deodorant and I saw this one on sale (you have probably now already figured out I love sales :D).
It also comes in an orange version. This one smells like berries, it's lovely, but it's gone after a few hours. Nothing special about this really, i will not repurchase.




5. Essence Metal Glam eyeshadow n. 03 Frosted apple; 2,7g – 0,99€



Also discontinued. Well, the colour of this eyeshadow is just… amazing. The glitter on the top is just an overspray, but there are some sparkles in the colour itself too. It's very nice and also very pigmented.




I have already one of these Metal Glam eyeshadows, and I'm very pleased with it. I have very oily lids and it stays on very long. However, I always apply primer.




6. Essence 3D eyeshadow n. 03 Irresistible first love; 2.8g – 0,99€

 



Discontinued.  I Haven't tried this 3D eyeshadows before and I'm honestly very impressed by the quality. This duo contains a pink and a grey/silver shade. Both are light in colour.




They are supposed to create a 3D effect when used wet. I don't see it, but ok :D However, there is a lot of fallout when applying.



7. Essence LE Beach cruisers Blush I Summer Break; 6,8g – 1,99€



This blush was a part of a limited edition Beach cruisers that was sold in June? I think so.. However, you can still get it in some stores. I got it in DM and it was on sale. It's a lovely peachy pink gradient. It has three shades, even more if you combine them together. All in all it's the perfect summer blush.




8. Bourjois Healthy mix concealer; 10 ml – 3,50€

I got this concealer second hand. It's highly pigmented, so you only need a small amount to work with. It blends and covers really well and has a long staying power. It tends to be a bit drying, so I would not recommend it for dry skin. However, my skin is oily and for me this is a perfect concealer.




I hope you enjoyed this, and let me know if you want me to do a review on anything :)
Xoxo,
Katja
