Colourpop Haul

22 comments
Hey loves <3

Today I'll share with you my Colourpop haul :) I ordered some items from the official Colourpop site since they were offering free international shipping recently. I bought one of their ultra matte lips in shade Solow before and I really enjoyed it so I knew I'd end up buying more.


So this time I ended up buying one Super shock pressed pigment, one of their Ultra metallic lipsticks and three ultra matte lipsticks. I also got mini Ultra satin lip as a gift with purchase.



Super Shock Pressed Pigment - Fantasy


This colour really caught my eye when I was browsing through their shadows and pigments. It's a beautiful  violet with blue shimmers, so pretty. It's very pigmented and feels soft and buttery. Can look like a duo chrome depending on the lighting.



Ultra Metallic Lip - Kween


I've been slowly but surely getting into the trend of metallic lips. This one looked amazing online and it's even more beautiful in person.



Ultra Matte Lip - Lumiere 2, Bumble & Beeper


If you don't know, Lumiere 2 was designed by the Youtuber Kathleen Lights, but I'm sure many of you know that ;) All three shades I got because I did quite a research on swatches before hand :P


From down to bottom: metallic lip - Kween, ultra matte lip - Bumble, ultra matte lip - Beeper and ultra matte lip - Lumiere 2.


Mini Ultra Satin Lip - Dopey


This one was included as a gift with purchase.


It's a shade at the bottom, after Lumiere 2. You can see I had quite a similar colour selection apparently :D

I'm sure I'll get a lot of use out of these, I love the fact that they last quite some time (even survive drinking/eating) and they are kiss-proof.

Have you ordered anything from Colourpop before, let me know what do you recommend ;)

Kisses,
Katja

REVIEW: Avon True Colour Illuminating Pearls

13 comments
Hey everyone :)

I had an eye on the Avon's true colour illuminating pearls for a while and finally when they were on offer decided to buy them :) 


The pearls  come in a black plastic tub and though the packaging looks huge, it's not heavy. The cap is screw type and fits well.

You get 22g of product for (usually on offer) 6-7€.



I love the effect it gives since it gives you a subtle shimmery look with a touch of colour. Perfect for summer!


If you have a light skin tone you can use it as a blush by crushing the dark colored pearls. I have been using this almost every day to highlight my nose bridge, my cheek bones and my chin as well as using it instead of a blush.


It's not chalky at all and it's very smooth to apply. I love that it has no fragrance since so many beauty products nowadays do. The quantity is huge for the amount I paid I don’t think I will need to buy this again for this life time :D 


It really works as everyday blush and highlighter and gives a nice sheen to  my face without looking glittery. Would totally recommend it for summer!

Have you tried this product already, let me know :)

Kisses,
Katja

REVIEW: Wella System Professonal Reconstructive Elixir Luxe Oil

18 comments
Hey loves :3

This time I'll review another product I received in my LookFantastic box. It's a Wella System Professional Luxe Oil. I haven't really used oil in my hair just because my hair gets greasy very quickly, but I decided to give this one a go.


Wella’s System Professional Luxeoil collection consists of keratin protect shampoo, keratin restore mask, ‘keratin boost essence spray’, light oil keratin protection spray and the ‘oil’/serum itself which Wella call ‘reconstructive elixir’. Each product promise to transform your hair’s texture while protecting, smoothing and softening without weighing down your locks. The hydrating oils in the mix are Argan as well as jojoba and almond. There’s also a good dash of hair strengthening keratin.


To use it, I simply pump one or two squirts into my palms, rub them together and then run them down the lengths of my hair while it’s wet. Once it’s dry, my hair definitely looks shinier and has a smooth, silky feel.

I went through the ingredients and a first few are almost all fragrances which explains the strong scent that this product has. I do like it though.


I like it a lot since it does make my hair feel really smooth, soft and silky. I do however warn you about the strong scent it has, you may like it or you may not.

I would recommend you to get a sample of it to try it at first if you consider it buying.

Kisses,
Katja

StyleWe Summer Wishlist*

Hey everyone :)

Today is another collaboration with StyleWe and JustFashionNow. I've written for StyleWe a couple times before, but If you haven't read the posts - It's an online fashion shopping platform featuring independent fashion designers. They believe fashion should be diversified and personal and fashion designers should not cater only to rich and famous, which I totally agree with :) 
 
This time I browsed through StyleWe tote bags selection. Here are some of my favourites:

Simple zipper tote


Large Green plaid tote

Let me know which one's your favourite! :) 

Since Summer is approaching very fast (it's basically almost here already:D) I decided to also browse through red tunic tops.
 
One of my absolute favourites is this one: 
 
Ruffled Tank
 
Let me know which piece is your favourite!

Have a great new week <3
