NOTD // Sinfulcolors Professional Pink Forever

I must admit the nail polish by Sinfulcolors are pretty good indeed
I'm so pleased to know that i can easily get them from my local COIN
they are less than 4 euro
and they come in so many different shades, today I've chosen a more spring inspired colour
Pink Forever
two coats and you are good to go
no need of a top coat
it is glossy by itself
I love it!
what do you think?

Thursday, 7 February 2013 January 2013 (Valentine)

This is my first Glossybox of 2013
this was meant to be a Valentine's glossybox
and I can see how 

red glossy box
red feathers
and the usual cards in red heart shape

this Glossybox gave me the opportunity to try for the first time a glossybox lipstick
called Glossy pink
and I fell in love with it


without any doubt this is the product I liked the most on my box
I also liked the Figs & Rouge Balm
100% Organic

Along with the Cielo Alto hair spray no gas

a positive start for 2013

look forward for the next coming

Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner 24h

Finally after nearly a year watching and hearing lots of good things about this product I was able to get one for myself to try out.

I must say even though in the last year or so (since my Blacktrack by MAC) ran out
I've been trying so many different alternative to it

Catrice gel liner
Sonia Kashuk
Sleek gel liner
Avon gel liner

and so on

Still though none of them really made me happy and turned me off by the idea of getting myeself a new Blacktrack

Most of the issues of these one above that I tried where either to smudge during the day.. having to cope with panda eyes (hence liner down my cheekbones)
or getting so dry that was hard to make a line without using the stroke technique

I think I have found the alternative to MAC

this gel liner by MAYBELLINE

is pretty much the same as quality to Blacktrack

doesn't smudge and also is ultra black
stays on all day (it claims 24h but I haven't tried it till then)

I really love it

No more Blacktrack for me

this is one does the same job for less money..

have you ever tried it?

let me know

Messing around with Make up....

here is the mess I can make while I'm filming
today I wanted to try and change my usual location
normally I film in the bedroom
but today I felt to try the bathroom...

to be honest didnt really work

but still I wanted to make this video!

well the video isnt ready yet but this is the mess I made

can you spot any make up brands?

let me know

Essence Profi-Nail File 4 in 1

something very essential than never is too much to own is nail files

they get used very quickly and that's why I like to get a big supplied of them

Essence is well known for being very low cost in term of make up brands out there
an as it happens nail files are actually very good

why spend a lot when you can get same quality for less than 2 €?

this one is perfect is called
the Profi-Nail File 4 in 1
and as the name suggest it has 4 parts that can be used for getting a perfect result on your nails

this works very well for me

I will repurchase it

have you ever tried this?

let me know

NOTD // SinfulColors Professional Espresso

Pretty and different
I didn't own anything like it before getting myself this nail polish by Sinfulcolors Professional


the only down side is that it needs the 3rd coats to have a good finish
the seconds coat is like... sheer.. see through nails
but the 3rd.. you got this result

I really love this shades, but I'm pretty sure that the camera didn't catch the real shimmer particles and the real effect.. pity!

if you can get this colour

get it

ESSENCE Stay Natural Concealer

Another concealer by Essence
Just recently got it

compared to the stay all day concealer this one I like a bitter less 

it is pretty good for only 1.99 €.

This is claims to naturally conceal the imperfections
and reduces the dark circles (hence the peachy toned to it)

also it says to contain vitamin a
(which I wouldn't even notice to be honest)

the only thing I can say is that is handy with the brush inbuilt in it
for a quick on the go application

also it is creamy and seem to blend nicely without too much creasing during the day

I rather thought a yellow toned concealer than a peachy one..
but still no to bad at all

Braun Silk-├ępil 7 Epilator

if you watched my video about this product you can understand why in 2013 I still want to have an Epilator

(I dont want to have cancer in order to erase my hairs)
I know this sentence sounds crazy but if you watch the video you will understand...

This one in particular is fantastic!!
I love the 5 heads that you can use in different situations.

I love the small face head which is perfect to get around the mouth areas without really pulling or getting too much skin in the epilator

For this one I paid 139,00 euro

and I'm very happy so far 

you can use it wet or dry
also without having the terrible disturbing cable plugged in while you are epilating

totally an happy face for me!

what do you use for removing your hairs?

let me know

Essence Smokey eyes Brush

Another brush from the very cheap line of Essence
this one I love more compared the Shadow brush I've shown on my preview post

this one is between a Blending and a pencil brush
I love it so much
under the lower lash line is perfect and also on the crease line.. 
It goes perfectly in the crease cause it isn't a very wide brush

it is pretty narrow and allows you to get more precise in the small areas 

definitely need to get so more of these

have you ever tried it?

only 1,99 €
