StyleWe Summer Wishlist*

11 comments
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

REVIEW: Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation

16 comments
Hey loves :)

Lately I have found myself on a major foundation kick. I’ve been trying new releases left and right. Today's review is about the Maybelline Fit me Matte + Poreless foundation. I bought it because it was on sale recently and I really wanted to see how it would perform on my skin since I do have enormous pores.


Here are the ingredients if anyone's interested:



It comes in a squeezy tube which means it's lighter and less fragile than glass bottles. Additionally, the tube comes sealed as well. So it is easy to check in stores whether someone has already opened it. A tube contains 30 ml of product which is standard for a foundation.


This product is formulated for normal to oily skin. It should blur imperfections, minimize pores and match flawlessly with your skin. The texture of this is surprisingly liquid for a matte foundation aimed at normal to oily skin. Coverage is good, I’d say medium and buildable to more, if you feel you need more. One thing I noticed immediately is how easy it was to blend this foundation. Despite the claims that this is a matte foundation, it doesn’t look cakey and keeps a certain amount of luminosity.

This is how it looks on me:


Wear time on this was great. It lasted all day and definitely survives a work day. It didn’t crease on itself which I think is mostly due to the fact that it is such a lightweight formula. You only need a little bit to cover your entire face and while it doesn’t cover everything, I loved how natural this foundation looked. 

I would absolutely recommend this foundation :) Do you have it, what do you think?

Happy Monday <3

LookFantastic Beauty Box - May

24 comments
Hey guys :)

My LookFantastic beauty box for the month of May has arrived a few days ago. You can see what I got in the month of April here -> CLICK.


Again, I really like the design of this box as well as a previous one, so cute. This one is also quite bigger than all the other ones I got before, you'll see why soon ;) The theme for this month is "Get the glow".




Let's jump into it ;)


1. Mellow Baked Eyeshadow - Peach



Whichever colour you receive, your eyes will thank you for. The softly pigmented shadow gives a gorgeous shimmer for a bright and luminous finish.


2. Real Chemistry Luminous 3-Minute Peel



The Real Chemistry Peel gets your skin glowing thanks to it's unique blend of proteins that remove dead skin cells and leave you with a renewed complexion.


3. H20 Gradual Tan Mist

 
This fine mist hydrates and nourishes the skin, whilst also imparting a hint of colour for a sun-kissed finish.


4. System Professional Luxe Oil



The System Professional Luxe Oil is a potent elixir, enriched with a blend of oils to nourish and condition the hair.


5. Glov Hydro Demaquillage



The Glov Hydro Demaquillage is made from hypoallergenic fibers to gently remove makeup and impurities, and leave your skin healthy and glowing.


6. Scrub Love Coconut Cranberry Body Scrub


This natural exfoliant is formulated with 100% organic and roasted coffee, as well as coconut oil to gently smooth your skin. Oh, and it smells divine!


These are all the products that were inside my box, I'm totally loving it again! I already tried the Luxe oil and it made my hair super soft, plus the Mellow eyeshadow is very pretty - can also be used as a highlighter! For 20€ including free shipping these boxes have not failed me so far :)

Hope you enjoyed, happy Saturday <3

Empties #30

13 comments
Hey loves :)

Another month, another empties post :) Let's start!


Redken Heatcure Hair Treatment - I received this hair treatment in one of my LookFantastic beauty boxes. I recently decided to give it a try since it did seem quite an interesting product. I peeled the back panel and it started self heating - which I have never experienced before :D It left my hair feeling really soft and nice, but nothing special, I think I would have to use it more to see actual long lasting results. An interesting concept nonetheless and I'm glad I had the opportunity to try it.

Purchase: Probably no, because it's too expensive.



Fitoval Dermatological Shampoo (Dandruff) - the only shampoo that actually helps me with my dandruff problems. Unfortunately it's quite expensive as well - 200 ml for about 8€.

Repurchase: I will in the future.


Nivea Care & Cocoa shower gel -  the first Nivea shower gel that I really didn't like in terms of the scent. A nice shower gel otherwise, very moisturizing.

Repurchase: Not this scent.


Himalaya Herbals Aloe & Cucumber Refreshing Moisturizer - even though my boyfriend and I both used this moisturizer we had a hard time using it up. We really didn't like the scent of cucumbers unfortunately.

Repurchase: No.


Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation - 120 Vanilla - really liked this foundation. It was perfect for everyday wear. Also posted a review of it already here -> CLICK. This is probably the most natural, skin-like foundation that I've tried.

Repurchase: Maybe, currently I have way too many foundations.


Avon Perceive EDP - I wasn't really a fan of this fragrance so I'm glad it's empty. It's an oriental fragrance with white pepper and yellow freesia being top notes.

Repurchase: No.


Catrice Glam & Doll Volume Mascara - one of the rare mascaras that I really, really liked. It separated my lashes nicely and gave them a nice length. I'd totally recommend this one!

Repurchase: I have a backup already ;)


And that's all for this month guys :) Hope you enjoyed and have a lovely day <3
