Anastasia Beverly Hills Haul

Hi everyone!

I have mentioned that is very hard to buy a lot of makeup brands in Hungary, so we  have to order online preferably from other European countries… and I am not a real online buyer, but I think I should start after these regularly (here is my first  Asos haul).

So this haul and first impression is going to be from Cultbeauty  (not PR haul!), they always have brand of the month, which is Anastasia Beverly Hills in March, 2018. They do have a free delivery on all orders over 40 GBP, but unfortunately the current promotional code is not valid form Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette-which was my main order. As you can see below I have also ordered a Dipbrow Promade, which is the cult products of ABH. So the promotion was the liquid lipstick set and I tend to choose 2 more SAMPLE- which are from Omorovicza (a Hungarian High end skin care brand- hell expensive like La Mer-, even their salon at Andrássy Road-on the way of my bike route I have never tried their products.)

Everything arrived in safety, let’s get started with Samples: 2 of them I will not try now, might be on a holiday: it is a reviving eye cream and a deep cleansing mask from Omorovicza. My gift was Anastasia Liquid Lipstick set:

  • Dazed: light cherry or burnt red color
  • Bittersweet: dark brown color – I think I will giveaway
  • Hudson: brawny nude  – might giveaway

I believe it is not their original size, but still decent size for a gift. They are quickly get super dry, so I believe it is so long wearing.

Dipbrow Pomade -Soft Brown: it was really hard to find the right color, as I have never used a brow gel yet, only pencils, but as I see it is the very same color as BB- Blonde

no it is darker or I have to learn how to use….

Modern Renaissance: might have read a lot of reviews on it, but I am really obsessed. 14 shades in combination of natural and berry shades only 6 of them is shimmery. Pans are a bit smaller than used to be 0,7g only, but as it is written 6M only, which is strange for a powder… all of them are cruelty free and comes with a double ended brush. They have quite high pigmentation, easy to apply, very smooth but a bit powdery.

Here you can see my swatches with MAC Paint Pot in Painterly underneat.

High end beauty products I wish to try

Hi everyone!

This post will be again a wish list like I did previously: My Sephora wishlist Spring wardrobe wishes but it will be expensive products, which I have never ever tried. Might you will see that I mentioning more products or same brands If you have already try these, comment below what you think I should invest in. Sometimes I will mention 2 or 3 icons, even I try to minimize:) I also wanted to find the sizes and US prices… and photos from google!

FACE

Primer:

  • Marc Jacobs- Under(cover) Perfecting Coconut Face Primer: “It hydrates, smooths, and preps the face for makeup application.” all what I would need and the packing is so classy and stylish. It is ideal for normal and dry skin so might be my combination skin would not love this, but it is contains coconut exact…hmm
    • $44/30ml=1oz at Sephora.com

Foundation:

  • Chanel: Vitalumiere Aqua: “Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Sunscreen Makeup SPF 15″I love light coverage like BB or CC creams, this is a water based foundation, which you have to shake before usage, although it is called sunscreen makeup with spf 15 it is not much protection in it, but can be ideal for a fresh Spring or Winter makeup. Why they put perfume and probpylparaben in it?
    • $50/30ml=1 oz at chanel.com

  • Giorgio Armani- Luminous Silk Foundation: I have heard too many good things about this, even it contains parabens… I have tried once at their make-up counter and OMG all day long, light to medium coverage, all I want from a foundation.
    • $64/30ml=1oz at sephora.com

Concealer:

  • Yves Saint Laurent: Touche Éclat- “The original face highlighter and #1 essential for your makeup bag.” I only had dupes of this from NYX or Pupa or L’Oréal, it is so expensive but as I have tried my mom’s one (she always repurchase it) it is one of the best high end concealer (which is actually a highlighter)and under eye brightener…

Contour:

  • Cream:Charlotte Tilbury – Hollywood Contour Duo:I do not have a contour cream at home, but I like the idea of this products and really good reviews on the sites… easy to apply and a hint of simmer, which is ideal for my pale skin tone.
    • $67/2×12 ml=0,14 oz at charlottetilbury.com

  • Powder: I rather use a bonzer-highlighter combo

Blush:

  • Chanel- Joues Contraste: “Unique powder blusher imparts a flattering radiance to cheeks. Remarkably silky texture for easy application and subtle shading. Accentuate cheekbones for a youthful look. Softer tones around the eyes soften expression and rejuvenate.” Do not know the shade yet, because so much are so beautiful: In love- nice baby pink, Élégance- mauve pink ect.

Bronzer:

  • Guerlain- Terracotta The Bonzing Poweder: the original matt formula in so many shades. “This bronzing powder naturally reproduces varying shades of the sun, offering women an instant natural glow, at any time of year, in one quick, easy motion. Its formula, enriched with moisturising active ingredients, does not dry out the skin. It ensures long-lasting comfort.” Might will buy it as my Bobbi Brown will be empty….

Powder:

  • Guerlain- Météorites: this powder is just simply stunning and really nice to have it next to a matt powder for glowing days. Can not decide between the compact,voyage or the pearls. “Today, the Météorites hold the secret to Stardust technology – a light-creating polymer, which transforms light invisible to the naked eye into a pure and endless glow on the skin. A subtle blend of matte, rosy and radiant blue-toned white pearls, combined with corrective coloured pearls – yellow to counter redness, pink for freshness and mauve to catch the light – they light up the face in an illuminating and corrective halo to give endless radiance.”

EYES

Brows:

  • Anastasia Beverly Hills- Dipbrow Pomade: it is a so big cult now, of course I want to try it like crazy. “Smooth application, waterpoof, smudge-proof, can be used as brow definer and as eye liner.”
    • Ł19/4g at cultbeauty.co.uk

Liner:

  • Kat von D- Tattoo Liner: Liners in my everyday make up to go, maybe cat eye is my signature of look, so far I want to try the most hyped back liner (Topper) at market now. I nearly purchased it last month in Bangkok at Sephora but there were out of stock of  black color…
    • $20/0,55ml=0,19 oz at sephora.com

Eyeshadows: that is the category which I would say too many good ones to choose and it is really hard to buy a real high-end palette in Hungary, that is why I only have: Mac eyeshadows in 4 or L’Oréal: La Palette Nude- which I wish to replace with a real good nude palette like Tarte or Urban Decay. Too Faced Chocolate palette is pretty but I think I would not like the smell of it and ABH- Modern Renessaince is just stanning. So what do you think ? Comment below your recommendation.

Mascara:

  • Dior-Diorshow: It is blonder and fuller the lashes and it has in brown and blue too with my favourite type of brush…

LIPS

Lipstick:

  • Yves Saint Laurent: Volupté Tint-In-Balm: its packaging is more that stunning. “A lipstick combining melting balm care with glowing sheer color”- tend to have a nude form them.

Have a beautiful day!

The bronzer issue with some haul

Hi everyone!

This post will be a mixture of my hauls and my makeup kit and it is going to be also a first impression.

Below you can see my recent purchases:

Spring wardrobe wishes was included my white mulberry silk top, which was a bit expensive, but really looking forward to wear it even it is a bit see-thought, but excellent with a nude bra. My other blush sneaker purchase was a bit more tricky, I went to Massimo Dutti to purchase the top and this shoe together, my shoe size is EUR 37.5 and usually half size is not available, they only had EUR 38 which was a way more big, so after a lot of calls by the shop assistant to other stores she helped me to order it online. I went home to check my confirmation and did not come, but I saw on their  site this shoe went to sale 14995 HUF (ca 50 EUR) while I have purchased it for 22995 HUF (ca. 80 EUR) I was so depressed… Slept badly and checked their website in the middle of the night and thankfully the sales only for size EUR 35 and all the other are out of stocks and I got the confirmation about the delivery for the next day. Size EUR 37 is just perfect:).

Recent my beauty purchases:

  • repurchases: MAC-Ruby Woo(missing from photo),MAC- Brush Cleanser and Clarins- Eclat Minute (07)
  • newies: L’Oréal- Paradise Extatic and Physicians Formula- Butter Bronzer

Impressions: L’Oréal- Paradise Extatic has already reviewed by much of you. Even it is existing for a half-year here I have not been too fascinating to run for it, so my Bobbi Brown’s Smokey Eye Mascara was empty, so I bought this cheaper one, as a lot of people said it is like Too Faced: Better Than Sex Mascara which I love but I can not buy it in Hungary. Honestly I hate that in our drugstores most of the makeups are just on the shelf without any cover and that is why some people open and use the products, not the testers… This babe was in a paper too:) and I love it a lot, even thought I think Too Faced still much better, but it is a really good alternative to BB Smokey Eye for the half price. In generally I love L’Oréal mascaras, but this is even over the top of them. Price: 3999 HUF (ca. 13 EUR)

Before my Bronzers, here is my  My Brush kit , My parfume collection and My lipsticks

Physicians Formula- Butter Bronzer: I would purchase it since it was come to Hungary this year January, but it was always out of stock at DM. Yesterday, I was just to buy some handcream, Carmex and Toothbrush to my husband, when I saw PF’s display was fulfilled. The price tag: 5499 HUF(ca. 18 EUR) bit more expensive than the other drugstore makeup and there was 2 shades Light Bronzer and Bronzer- on the tester both looked nearly the same, so I have picked up Bronzer. Packing: in a way really nice: good colors and Hawaii feeling, mirror, but there is a useless sponge/applicator and the mirror is in the back , why not is the same place as the products? The pan is big enough, color is beautiful almost full matt, but I was expecting to have this more creamy, but after using it with my brush it is quiet powdery and the coconut smell is just too much for me…

Compare it to my two other bronzer:

  • Pupa Sun Bronzer and Shine: Pupa’s packaging is much better, even I do not like to have the highlighter and bronzer in the same pan, so I can only use it during the summer, when I prefer to shiny bronzer or separately to my eyes. PS’s color is not as yellow as Pupa’s, which is better. Pupa has a bit less smell. Price range is the same.
  • Bobbi Brown Bonzing Powder- Stonestreet: it is more expensive, nearly the double but it is highly bet the PF is pigmentation, color, packaging, formula and no smell:).

Xoxo,

My parfume collection

Hi everyone!

Warm welcome on my blog and keep reading if you are interested in my current favourite perfumes.

So I did owned a few perfumes in my life, so of them was so memorable, like Aquolina: Pink Sugar during my teenager parties and night outs or Moshino:Funny which I still love as for a really lightweight parfumes, everyday perfume.

Usually I have a few parfumes for different occasions, so I do not have a real statement parfume like a lot of people do, I always have favourites. I have a weird habit, that I keep a tiny bit at the end of the bottle till I do not repurchase them.

My current collection:

  • Lancome- Trésor- Midnight Rose: Probably this is my favourite, just finished the 3rd bottle of that sophisticated sweet fragrance. I love its sweetness, berry fruity smell with a touch of rose and woody undertone. According to Fragnatica it has raspberry rose absolute. It is similar to my other fav: Pacco Rabbane: Black XS
  • Carolina Herrera-212 VIP Rosé: It has a gorgeous and sporty rosegold bottle fruity and floral, but more floral them the Lancome one, and it is really gives the feeling of a dry fruity, sparkling rose or rose champagne. Fragnatica and my Valentine’s day choice
  • YSL- Black Opium Floral Shock: It is the new version of Black Opium, which was too intensive coffee smell for me, but this baby gets a bit more fresher floral and fruity top and middle notes, which makes for me more wearable and love the coffee as a base note of it. Fragnatica
  • Zadig et Voltaire- This is her!: probably the most unique perfume which I have ever smelt. I is my non-floral fragrance with woody,vanilla, powdery notes. This mystery reminds me of a chestnut tree.  Fragnatica
  • Chanel: Gabriella: honestly I have just purchased it used only 2-3 times, that this is the first ever Chanel perfume, which I like due to its citrus-floral-bit sweet combo, might be I like that it is more sweeter than other Chanel and it is gives the feeling of being an adult woman. Fragnatica

I hope you have enjoyed my list and looking forward of your comment below about your favourites.

My Brush kit

I do not have a lot of brush like a youtuber or vlogger, sometimes I feel I have to purchase some more, so here is my current collection. As you can read here that I am a lipstick kind of person so I have lack of eye brushes as well. My list is rather for a starting kit.

FACE:

MAC 190 – Classic flat foundation brush: I like to apply stick (cream)

img_2068

my)foundation and creme blush with it.

Real Techniques- Expect Face Brush- My go to foundation brush, it is so good to blend liquid foundation, having short whites like a duo fibre brush, but it is not that (I used to have a duo fibre brush just it was too big for my face).

img_2067

Bobbi Brown-Face Blender: from real hairs luxurious brush. Often use it just to touch up and blend everything together, but I love bronzer application with it, sometimes I do use it for blush or highlighter or powder.

Real Techniques- Blush Brush: Point, fluffy blush brush. I love its flawless finish. Synthetic also a bit duo fibre brush for powder blush.

img_2066img_2065

Bobbi Brown- Powder brush: real hair shaped brush, just love this pricy giant angel:)

img_2063 IL-Makiage- Powder: First face brush I have ever bought, not bad even bigger than BB’s one and sometimes hairs falling out of it, unfortunately bought it for a way much more than what it worst, these times we did not really have shops to buy brushes… Rarely I use if the BBs is just too dirty.img_2062 MAC-194 Dou Fibre Fan brush: I do not think it is still exists, but it is a really cool highlighter brush and sometimes I use it for blush or bronzer.img_2069 Real Techniques-Setting Brush: I am having serious circles under my eyes, so a good setting brush for powder to fix the concealer is really important….img_2070 EYES:

MAC-217: just the perfect blending brush, I should buy one more or a ZOEVA dupe… love it so so much.

img_2071 MAC- 266: Small Angeled brush for powder or gel liner or powder for eyebrows, a real multitasking brush.img_2072 Douglas- Eye brush: my oldest brush,bought it back highschool, real fur flat eye brush for powder eyeshadow.

Essence-Eyeshadow: the most cheapest brush I have, thicker than the previous one and synthetic, I only use it for paintpot.

Paris Berlin-10 and Ebelin-Liner: I tend to use gelliners, so these guys just for that reason.

LIP:

No name lip brush I think from DM or Rossmann but real fur, personally I do not really use it, but it is good if I want to use my lipsticks on someone else…small and handy.

Yes I should buy some new, comment below if you have suggestions!

with love,

My Sephora wishlist

Hi everyone!

People says that the best way to save your money from Sephora is to live in a country without Sephora. Well, it somehow it is true, but in the other hand I am always going to Sephora when I am abroad with my saved money (or asking some friends) and spend it. Like last time:

img_0865

To tell the truth, here in Hungary we do have a lot of other possibilities to buy skin care and makeup products at parfumeries like Marrionnaud, Mueller or Douglas, pharmarcy, drogerie or Brand stores like Mac, Bobbi Brown or Estee Lauder.

Skincare is not so interesting at Sephora for me as we have Glamglow, Clinique or Khiehl’s here, so I gonna focus on make up wishes.

My lipsticks

Hello everybody!

I am a big fan of lip focused make up, really like to leave my eyes natural and applying some mascara only and put some lip color on. Before you reading most of the products will be professional or high-end product, only a few of them liquid. I have collected from my bags together:)

Nudes:

Rimmel- Lasting Finish by Kate 03- Coral Nude: it is a matte, mauve pink with some brown, coral in it

L’Oréal- Color Riche J Lo’s Nude- sheer finish, so not long lasting, bit sparkling and really feminem nude

Bobbi Brown- Lip Color Sandwash Pink 22- that is my perfect nude, exactly my lip color, last 3-4 hours, pretty mauve pink nude

NYX- Lingerie Embellishment- was the perfect new nude color for me from 2017. It is not a real nude for me, but I love this solid  and extraordinary: purple/brown/pink nude

Pinks:

MAC- Angel: I was thinking whether is a nude or pink, but rather a baby pink on me. It is from Frost range, so slightly shimmery light pink.

Rimmel- The Only 1 Peachy- Beachy- Do not really use this color, because it is a very summer color and fits well on more sunkissed skin. It is having a really nice creme matte finish, color is a bright pink with peach.

Estée Lauder- Pure Color Coral Sun 69- it was my very first luxurious lipstick, still love that creamy peach/ coral pink, it is deeper than Peachy-Beachy so more wearable for me on summer time even at work.

Estée Lauder- Pure Color Envy Matte Uninhibited 409- one of the newest so luxy bright pink color

Bobbi Brown- Liquid Art Stick Lily- other bright pink, just bit lighter than Uninhibited and as it is a liquid semi matte lipstick the finish is totally different. Also a summer color for me.

MAC-All Fired Up- retro matte formula, so very dry and super long lasting bright pink (blue undertone) with a bit of red, that was my bridal lipstick so lovely on the pictures.

Read the story here

Reds:

Bobbi Brown- Luxe Lip Color Sunse Orange 29- it is an orange with a bit of red, beautiful bright color with creamy matte finish and long lasting

MAC- Ruby Woo- I do not think I have to describe this cult red color: retro matte with blue undertone

Bobbi Brown- Luxe Lip Color Parisienne Red 28- same really wearable formula as the other luxe lip, yellow undetoned red.

Essence-Velvet Matt 18- cherry red lipstick, matte but not as long wearing as BB or MAC

Too Faced- Melted Matte Lady Balls- Bright red matte liquid lipstick, deeper than Ruby Woo or Parisienne Red

Deep:

MAC- Fashion Revival- Matte formula aubergine color. AW color

Estée Lauder-Pure Color Love Rose Xcess 120- purple brown color, but not as aubergine as FR above and not as full intensive… (even it is seems very much the same on the swatches)

MAC- Sin- Classic Deep Brown Matte lipstick like my mom had in the 90s

Of course I also have two lip glosses and big fav Clarins Lipprotector 🙂

My fav beauty product of 2017

At the end of the year, let me introduce my favourite new product. Litelly, they are new launch in Hungary or first time bought abroad.

Haircare:

Yves Rocher: Pureté

Eventhought my hair is not so oily, but it makes that so lightweight and calm Down my scalp. No parabens and silicone is a plus.

The Body Shop: Wild Argan Oil Miracle Solid Oil

Really love this compact packaging, this is enough for ages and even you can use it for body as well. It is just knocked L’Oreál elséve oil for me.

Facecare:

L’Oreál Paris:Pure Clay Glow Mask

Brightens and exfoliates well and Finally on the high street…

The Body Shop:Tea Tree Anti-Imperfection Night Mask

I do not use all the range of Tea Tree, only this as day time I rather moisturing my skin, but cleans my mixed Skin from the blemishes during the Night so well.

Skinfood: Egg White Pore Form

Just gentil remove the make up and clean the face with Korean beauty cult.

Makeup:

Laura Mercier: Foundation Primer (oily free)

Best and most outstanding primer I have even tried. Really lightweight and perfect under Estee Lauder Double wear. This was my first product from the Brand, but want to try some of the other as well.

Maybelline: Instant Age Rewind

I own the shade Light, I would not say this is my best concealer ever, but it is the best from drugstore and the packaging is ideal for travelling. Finally they lauched in October or September in Hungary.

The Balm: Mary-Lou Manizer

Also this year lauched here, this cult product. Beautiful light golden highlighter is just the Perfect luminizer.

Nars: Orgasm blush

Finally I got this beautiful and iconic simmery powder blush, normally I prefer matte but this is just … no words.

Estée Lauder: Pure Color Love- Rose Xcess(120)

So luxurious package with a really pretty autumn/Winter color. It is a Sheer Matte lipstick, so not dries down the lips. Orginally I was looking for 230 color, but then I changed my mind. Shape was a bit weird for the very first time, but easier to Apply.

Too Faced: Melted Matte- Lady Balls

Till we did not meet I hated liquid lipsticks, but this is much more better than all the other I have ever tried. Dries quickly and stay in place for a long time. Might need to buy some other colors as well. Lip primer is a need underneath.

Nyx: Lingerie- Embellishment

Deep nude (mauve purple) color, but I hate the rest of the colors of the range, might be this is something else in the ingredients…

Real Techniques: setting brush

Tiny powder brush, which is really cheap, eventhought it is synthetic it is works well with powder. So multifuncional bit dou fibre brush. What I use for: powder under the eyes, blending the edges or hightlighter.

Stay turned for my negative list 🙂
