May beauty situations

Hi lovelies,

We do have a rainy May, so spending a lot of time indoor and doing a lot of works in the hotel and also from home as the conference season is on.

So I was diagnized with seborrhea at the end of March, I always have dandruff in Winter, but never thought that much, so I got some cream and medicals and went to allergy test, which shown my intolarance od diary products. So I am not drinking or eating them for 6 weeks and I tend to say my skin also looks much better and having lack of seborrhea which is such great. So I try to find the best sampoo possible as the medical sampoos are just occasional use only. The Body Shop Banana shampoo is one of my favourite, but it has too much parfume in it. Nature Box contains a bit less of fagrance, but I am not sure is they are CF, so just has purchased an Inecto Argan Shampoo, which is vegan and cruelty free and has lack of parfum. So just hope that it is going to work.

Now I have to admit that even I am try to be cruelty free I am not vegan and do not want to be vegan even if we have days without meat, sometimes I love to eat meat, specially fishes and also I can not suggest restaurant without having an overview of their cuisine.

My recent empties:

Bobbi Brown Brow pencil and lipstick in Sandwash Pink are not CF, so will not repurchase them, I already have a dupe of the lipstick in a Charlotte Tilbury one. Tarte lifted mascara is a nice brown mascara, it is getting a way too dry and used it up duuring the last 6-7 months, I do not know whether I will repurchase it or not, because it gives a really nice look but nothing extra for the price.  The Ordinary serum foundation is changed into a very bad shape: oil seperated from the other parts, color changed, so I can not use it any more – it is openned for 9 months…

I have took back 6 products to MAC and choose a lipstick in Faux for one of my greatest friend’s birthday.

9741026-1-faux

Reflecting on recent purchases:

My top of top is the Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk lipstick I just love it, it is the perfect lipstick: nice color, easy to wear, matte but not dry and the rosegold package is not stunning. While the Pupa I’m Pupa matte lipstick also such a great shade, but it is a bit more on the drier side, but do not forget it is half priced to CT one. I have discovered two really great Trend it up products: Expert lip primer & care is a great due to MAC prep+ prime lip for the price of a tenth and also their lip oil is such a miracle.

It cosmetics cc also a great product, however I have ordered light- medium based on the sephora.com foundation finder, it is a bit dark for me, so might be during the summer I can make a use of, but it is look great on the skin. The Body Shop Lightening touch concealer is a great dupe for YSL Touch Eclat, while E.l.f. gel liner is nice to replace Mac blacktrack liner.

I am unable to use the Lano Allover cream as my husband just adore and taking it everywhere;). I did not have the opportunity to try out the other lanolips products as I am still thinking to keeping both or giving one to my sister. Also The Ordinary Sunscreen is useless in this bad weather so…

E.l.f. Daily hydration moisturizer and Beauty Shield spray are nice products, but have not decided if them empty will I repurchase them or not.  I am not going to repurchase the Trend it up Eyeshadow Cream, it is nice on the top of other eyeshadows but not long wearing and not waterproof at all.

So I hope you enjoyed reading.

Xoxo,

 

Better me(?!): Minimalism

Hi lovelies,

2019 is a kind of big changing for myself: I try to send and use less, be more sustainable. Since we have moved in we rarely do but things to our flat, as I do not want to make it overcrowded. I think I have not done our home tour  yet, but it is a soon to be however I feel it is not ready yet.

So I am trying to minimizing my closet, take away all that I am not in love with, but first I want to share some recent purchases.

Faux leather skirt– Promod: I always had a faux leather skirt, but as it was smashed I have taken it to the trash in November, so now I have replaced it with an A-line one. It is a mini length and suede patches on the sides.

IMG_5557

Basic black T-shirt– H&M: I was needed a v-neck 100% cotton basic black T-shirt as I am really hated my previous Zara one, just I am going to giveaway now. I bought a size bigger than me, just to be more casual.

Leopard shirt- H&M: this is trendy piece, but I do not wanted to spend a lot on it, as it is diffenetely not an investment and also finally I have found one, which is not polyester!

Stripped shirt– H&M: for a long time I wanted to have a blue-white striped shirt and also loved the shirts with a tie at the stomach, so it is a 2in1, I thought it is a pretty basic piece.

Now I am going to take 4 clothes to an exchange event: cut-out red dress, a blue dress (wore years ago), a black skirt (hate its shape) and a brown body (hate the material) – all of these are in perfect conditions, but not using them at all. A  skirt and a dress was so used so  just took to the trash.


Stila- Color Balm Lipstick

unthought it is not belongs to minimalism, but to my cruelty free journey… I have exchanged my MAC blush into this Stila Color Balm lipstick shade elle. Usually I do not like to change my products which I want to sell, but now I have done it as this balm was looked sheer on the reviews online so I was in the deal, but no…. just look at my swatch.  Afterwards I have checked the freshness by its batch code: 2013… It is a kind of fail…

IMG_5561


And finally I want to do a minimal makeup challenge in February. I have already selected the 15 products which I am going to use in the entire month, okay it is also great to use up my products before opening a new one or buy a new one. Yes not all of them are cruelty free, but these are a way too expensive, so I wanted use them up:

  1. MAC- Strobe cream: Hydratant lumineux
  2. MAC- Prep+ Prime Lip
  3. MAC- Prep+Prime Fix+
  4. Trend It Up- Insta Ready Foundation
  5. Tarte- Shape Tape Concealer
  6. Clinique- Superpowder
  7. Bobbi Brown- Bronzing Powder
  8. Bobbi Brown- Pink Glow Highlighter
  9. Bobbi Brown- Pot Rouge in Pale Pink
  10. Bobbi Brown- Perfectly Defined Long-Wear Brow Pencil in Blonde
  11. NYX- Epic Ink Liner in Black
  12. Too Faced- Better Than Sex Mascara
  13. MAC- Paint Pot in Painterly
  14. Bobbi Brown- Lip Color in Sandwash Pink
  15. Estee Lauder- Pure Color Love in Rose Xcess

+1 MAC- lipstick in Ruby Woo

I try to do a full face of make up of these products, if some of them will be empty during the month just going to replace them with a CF version. Will be updated at the end.

P.S.: I will try to avoid shopping:)

Xoxo,

 

 

Getting cruelty free- makeup issue part 1

Hi lovelies,

Let’s continue crueltyfreeserie the with the most interesting part, my makeup bag! I have tried to find so alternatives of the products that I really like, but so make of them are not cruelty free, so I had to make some research. Firstly I am going to start with my drug store section, all these are cheaper and easier to restore. With my high end ones, I try to sell or give away or just replace with cruelty free ones, when they are out.

My current cruelty free products.

These all are not!

Eyeliners: I am having 4 to restore:

  • Yves Rocher: 12- Bleu Agave and 09- Blue Paradis- they are so creamy and not so long lasting, even thought they are pencils I used them a lot like a liner. Yves Rocher sells there product in China, so replacement goes to Stila- Intense Sapphire (Bleu Paradis), which is out from China since 2016.
  • Artdeco Kajal Liner 02- simple black liner, honestly it was not a big love as it is not so soft and neither well pigmented…
  • L’Oréal: liner, I love this go to liner now I have bought a new one from NYX

Lipsticks:

  • Rimmel- Kate 03: it is a pinkish browy nude shade, this color is nice, but it is not so long lasting and I am just simply hate how it smells, that is why I do not use it a lot. People consider it as a MAC: Velvet Teddy dupe
  • Rimmel- The only 1: Peachy Beachy: the perfect peach color but not way too creamy and after a half hour it is disappears or on my teeth…
  • Maybelline- Shine Pink Shock: okay I am not a lipgloss fan, this is having a nice shine and not sticky, so might need to replace it later.

Nails:

In Generally I tend to say I am not a big nailpolish fan, I was so suprised how much I have, but mostly they are so old… so I have take all my Maybelline, L’Oréal, Bourjois, Oriflame, Yves Rocher and Sally Hansen products to the trash without any heartbreaking moment. Kiko, BeYu, Pupa, Catrice and Crystal Nails left in my collection If they not dried out…

+ Mascara: I have ordered my favourite Too Faced one to replace my L’Oreal Lash Paradise;)

+ Bobbi Brown: Stick Foundation will be finished soon and not going to repurchase it.

Of course those which are still good will goes to a local girls home as a charity.

Xoxo,

My 10 makeup wishlist

Hi lovelies,

Everyone has a makeup wish list, so where is my 10 die for is this season, what’s yours? I might listing those which are already existing, but these are hard to get (and usually expensive too). This is an update on my  My Sephora wishlist and High end beauty products I wish to try ,of course they are all crueltyfree

  1. Anastasia Beverly Hills– Norvina : I  have the Modern Renaissance palette, which is so highly pigmented and easy to use but her other palettes was not an extra for me, till this beauty hit the world. Soul is so unique shade will be shimmery ones are like dreams…norvina
  2. Tarte– Shape Tape Contour Concealer: I just really wants to try this cult, full coverage concealer, which would be the perfect replacement of my MAC Prolongwear Concealer. It is pricy and I am afraid of choosing the wrong color. If you know the NW20 color dupe write me in comment.tarte
  3. Glossier– Cloud Paint: Puff and Beam are my dream shades, Puff might be the dupe of Bobbi Brown Paint Pot in Pale Pink, which is my go to winter blush… why they do not sell them in Europe???Glossier-Cloud-Paints-Review_1024x1024
  4. Fenty Beauty– Gloss Bomb Universal: I am not a fan of glosses, but this one looks so amazing, next time at Sephore must purchase.fenty
  5. Marc Jacobs – O!Mega Bronzer Perfect Tan: so big, so luxuries, like all girls big dream and its INCI looks cool.                                              marcjacobs
  6. Hourglass– Ambient Lighting Powder: Since Guerlain is not cruelty free, its Meteorites dupe is this one…       hourglass
  7. Becca– Primeror highlight: I am not writing the which one I would love as I have not read yet, which would be the perfect for me… but read so many good about them.becca
  8. Charlotte Tilbury– Airbrush Finishing Powder: it is looks so luxurious and hopefully would work on me…zb_p
  9. Charlotte Tilbury– Matte Revolution Pillowtalk would be a nice dupe of Bobbi Brown Sandwashed Pink Lipcolor, my favourite nude to be change into cruelty free.til030_charlottetilbury_matterevolution_pillowtalk_1560x1960-sanvg
  10. Urban Decay– Eyeshadow Primer Portion: how would not try this internet heroe for the perfect eyeshadow…                                                          ud2

I have quit a few others from Huda or Stila, just there are the ones, which I really would to invest in and would be really happy to get them as a gift.

What is your dream list:

Empties and clearing out

Hi everyone!

So Glamour days are just on the corner, as I do not want to over purchase I love to have a look what I have in my wardrobe, makeup kit or in beauty. And of course throw away the empties, old makeups and creams, sell or give away to a charity (clothes).

Shopping on sales

Glamour days is a shopping weekend in Hungary, organized by Glamour magazine, where you can buy a lots of stuffs with discounting coupon, of course there is a lot of shopping malls do have some coupons of 20%, but at drugstore you usually have 50% sales on items with the magazines, and there are some products , which I only buy on these days in every half-year. I think this time I should figure out a budget to avoid impulse shopping.

Here is my clear out:

MAKE-UP I HATE

  • Maybelline: Master Strobing Liquid– honestly I do not like this product, even I used only a tiny bit, I am going to sell it
  • Bobbi Brown: Instant Full Cover Concealer- this is an expensive product,which I have used only 3-4 times, but I can not stand it under my eyes, too thick and the color which the artist gave me (SAND) really does not match. Try to sell

Make-up empties:

  • Bobbi Brown: BB Cream (Fair) loved it so much now I will replace my other fav BB: Clinique age defense BB in shade 2
  • Clarins: Eclat minute (07) I have already repurchased
  • Laura Mercier Foundation Primer-Oil Free: really love that primer, that works perfectly with Estee Lauder Double Wear, but I do not know where to repurchase it-so what shall I buy instead?
  • MAC: Prep-Prime Translucent Powder:really nice white powder, but nearly empty might will purchase an other brand’s translucent powder.

Skin care empties:

  • The Body Shop: Vitamine E sorbet: really love that lightweight cream, I think I will repurchase it. This is my go to daily cream, make up is so well to apply on it
  • The Body Shop: Tea Tree Night Mask: Tati hates it,  do love it, the skin feels so smooth and clean after the night, I tend to use only a little bit of it for my blemishes
  • L’Oreal: Pure Clay: Glow Mask: it is not a bad clay mask, but I think I will look for something else, which is a bit more deep cleaner clay mask.
  • Yves Rocher: Serum Végétale (I think it was) Eye cream it is a big no…

Oldies:

  • Clinique: Stay matt powder: I loved that powder, but I use it for 3-4 years and it is nearly empty, so I think I have to replace it- might will be an other one just I have to make a search on it.
  • Essence: All about Matt!: is a really good fixing powder from the drugstore, lasts ca. 3-4 hours,so I do not really like that I have to powder my T zone again and again during the day. I understand the hype it is probably the best in value and price but I tend to send more for a better one. I do not like its packing….
  • Beyu: Brow Powder: honestly I really love that powder, so much products, but I have it for 4 or 5 years so too old to use, unfortunately I have not seen this brand anymore at Douglas (it was ca. 17-18 SD).
  • L’Oréal: Color Infaillible: Pressed pigments in Sahara shade, probably the best and long lasting pigment in golden shade, it has a lot of product and after a 8-9 years of use I stll have the third of it. L’Oréal why discontinue this?
  • Bobbi Brown: Pot Rouge: Pale Pink is my go to cream blush, it is nearly empty, I have purchased like 2 years ago, but the product itself is 7 years old according to this production code… I think I have to repurchase it.
  • Too Faced: Better Than Sex– Waterproof travel size just forgotten of the photo of empties… also a really cool mascara which I love- same goes to MAC powder.
  • L’Oréal: Color Riche– J.Lo’s Nude is empty I loved it, but I have MAC Angel now, which is really similar to that.

CLOTHES

I always  clear out my wardrobe at season changing, but this year March was a way too chilly so… I will not describe what I will thought away items by items.

  • Oldies, which I have not used for a year
  • Never used/Used once
  • Occasion dresses
  • Torn, starched or items which need to repair

SHOPPING

This year I want to be more planned, so I have just cut the coupons, figured out my budget to avoid impulse shopping, checked the brand websites according to my Spring wardrobe wishes  and I might will shopping more online.

Stay turned for my haul!

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:).

Valentine’s day

Hi everyone!

Me and my husband do not really celebrate Valentine’s day as 14th February is his birthday… so he hates that all the cakes are heart-shaped and red hearts everywhere. Valentine day celebration comes from US, still not the most common in Europe… so we only get flowers or bonbons.

So even it is his day, we often have a slightly hint of Valentine:

No men on the Earth would say no to a nice black lace lingerie. This year I am looking for a Triangle bra and some nice panties:

perfume: a perfume has to be sexy, mysterious and classy for the night. I love Lancome: Tresor Midnight Rose or Carolina Herrera 212 Rose- I think I will choose that this year.

Red lipstick: my hubby does not fan of makeup, but he really likes the red lips with nothing else (honestly: seems like nothing else) I will go for my classic MAC: Ruby Woo

Rosé: we do like wines, drinking a glass of quality wine is just our way to finish up a nice day. Dry, fruity (berries) rosé always a nice choice for Valentine’s here my choices from Hungary (if you visit our country you should taste our wines as well).

If you are in Budapest on the 14th February, here is my top Concierge recommendations for Restaurants with special menu:

  • Legenda Dinner Cruise: two and a half hour candle lit dinner with your loved on the World Heritage Site of Danube Banks.
  • Zona Bistro by the Chain Bridge with a spectacular view, amazing food (even selected by her side and his side) and my favourite Kristinus wines.
  • Callas Café and Restaurant: if you wish to have something more classical in the city centre by the Opera

Xoxo

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,

M

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 🙂
