I absolutely love this lipstick in this shade. When I first reviewed it, you all said in the comments that you didn’t like it and that it's not matte. Well, it is matte! In the sense that it dries without looking wet and shiny. It’a not long lasting and it does transfer, but it’s just like any other regular lipstick. This shade is soooo beautiful and I love it.

Review | MAYBELLINE Fit Me Concealer

As usual I’m late for the party... I know you’ve probably heard a lot already about this product already, but hey, I like to give my input too.

This is the Maybelline Fit me Concealer — A liquid concealer with a wand applicator that is known for being a dupe for NARS Creamy Concealer. I've heard so many people raving about this, that I just had to get it and try it out for my own.

 -- Please be nice and supportive and click on at least one of the pictures! I'd do the same for you. Thank you! --

The consistently it’s nice — not too tick nor too shear. It is super easy to blend  -- a few gentle dabs with my finger works the product in quite well without making any of my fine lines visible or more accentuated. You know I like minimal packaging and this on hits the spot: is pretty simple and it just comes with a small furry applicator wand, that to honest is not much to help in working the concealer into the skin but rather just as a tool to help get the product out and onto your face.

As for coverage, well, it's not as good as I was expecting. I'd say that this is light to medium coverage. And for me, that works perfectly because that's all I need, but if you like more coverage, maybe this is not for you. The huge problem for m, is with the color. When buying drugstore foundation or concealers, I can’t try the product before buying. Most of the times they don't have testers out, and I never know what shade to get. I hate this because then I get home and the shade doesn't really work for me and I can’t because I've opened it... So yeah, I got shade 20, but I think it’s just a little bit to dark for me — I mean, it’s fine but it doesn’t give me enough brightness. Honesty, I've been using it mostly as an eye shadow primer. The wand applicator makes it easy to apply onto my eyelids and makes everything even and smooth.
What do you think?

Review | L'OREAL STYLISTA #sleek & #beachwaves

I have crazy hair, and I need to control this mess every day because I need to look super cute and presentable for work. Let's just say I have to put quite a lot of heat on my hair on a daily basis. I blow dry my hair and straighten it with a flat iron, at least once a week. And if the weather is crazy -- to humid for example -- I need to touch up the ends or the around my hair. So yeah, you can imagine how excited I was when I got these in the mail! 

These two cute bottles are a part L'ORÉAL's new line -- Stylista. Basically it's a series of hair styling products, each one designed to help you achiave a specific look.

I got the two products that are more relevant for what I do with my hair -- The Sleek Serum and The Beach Wave Mist.
My hair is naturally wavy and I don't have problems with volume. But as I've said, I do straight it very often. And I do like a very sleek with super straight ends kind of look. And oh yeah, The Sleek Serum really helps you achieve that! You're supposed to apply the product onto damp hair and blow dry it with the help of a brush. And then use a flat iron to make your hair flat and sleek and beautiful. This serum offers heat protection up to 230ºC and it helps avoiding frizzy hair. Applying it is really easy. I use it mostly onto my ends -- mainly because I'm always crazy scared that'll get oily roots. It feels nice, smells really good, and a couple of pumps are good enough to cover most of my hair. And this product really makes a difference. It's hard to explain, but I feel like it gives weight to my hair. And this extra weight helps pull down the hair, leaving you with a really perfect straight and sleek hair. It's really awesome. I love this effect! However, the effect does go away really fast. It definitely doesn't last all day, and if the weather is too humid, it just vanishes. I often straight my hair at night, right before going to bed, and of course this doesn't survive a full night of sleep. 

As for the Beach Wave Mist, I use it when I'm bored of having flat hair. It is also really easy to use -- just shake well and spray it at the ends of fully dry hair. Than, style it until you get the desired effect. And I've done it two ways: first I tried just using my hands, applying the product just to very ends of my hair and scrunching it up to get some waves. This totally gives me beach messy hair. But I like my beach waves to be more controlled, so I've tried using my curling iron to get some well defined waves. And yeah, it work pretty well. The waves hold on really well, and it looks natural and flowy

I honestly really like these! And as for the price -- they are tho a bit expensive. Each little bottle cost 5,99€ but I feel like they actually last a long time. I've used my sleek serum quite a lot and I still have half bottle.

Stuck In My Head | Most Girls

This song is so special. It represents any kind of woman you wanna be. It basically is saying that you can wake up any day of the week and be whoever you want, whatever you want, you can feel any sort of way and not feel ashamed and that's something I love about the message of this song.

Most girls are smart and strong and beautiful
Most girls, work hard, go far, we are unstoppable
Most girls, our fight to make every day
No two are the same

For the first time in my damn life I've finished a whole bottle of perfume. Yep. I used up every single drop of my Chanel Chance. I wanted to try a new one but I have this crazy thing with smells, so it's hard for me to make a decision and it took me a while to find another perfume that I like on me. Eventually I got this one -- Coco Mademoiselle. It’s also Chanel, of course— because I always love anything Chanel. And it’s waaay more expensive than my old perfume. WAY more. But I got it anyway. It has a more mature smell, I’d say. It’s a little bit sweeter, a bit more intense. It has some sort of oriental and exotic feeling about it. More sensual. I like it. I really like it.

REVIEW | FLORMAR Terracotta Blush-On

Ok. First things first -- Flormar, is awesome OK? Since that day that I walked in there to buy an eyeliner and walked out with a bag full of stuff, I went back there twice. And both times I got a bunch of gorgeous stuff, that I’m like absolutely loving.  
One of those things, was this beautify marbled blush. Just look at it — how gorgeous is it?! The beautiful hot pink, with this warm golden veins! Stunning!

This is the Terracotta Blush-On in shade 44 Pink Bronze. And what more can I say? It’s really pigmented but you can buff it out really easily. I really like it because it kind of gives me that “I’m blushed because I just spent all the afternoon at the beach” kind of look. And it depends of where in the pan you pick of your product -- I often just swirl my brush around to get a bit of everything, but you can defiantly pick up product closer to the golden veins to get a more bronzy blush. It is very shimmery and highlighting too, so it also adds a nice glow to the cheeks. 

This has been my go-to blush ever since I got it. The one and only thing I have to point out it the packaging. I mean, this blush is so stunning but than it comes in a cheap black plastic container thingy... Meh.
