“How many money?” -2

Hi lovelies,

After the post yesterday, let’s continue counting with my beauty haJune vanity updateuls:

HAIR:

I do not have the most expensive purchases on a photo, but deffinetely the Olaplex and The Ordinary Argan Oil, used up 3 conditioners and ca. 4 sampoo with my hubby, so I can just estimate: 20 000 HUF (ca. 63 EUR)

That is why there is no point to count the body products…

FACE Care:

Again not all of them are on the pictures, but I do have a total: 42 224 HUF (ca. 130 EUR)

Make up:

maybe my most documented acts, so I can also mention who much I used up in a year and also, which I did not workedfor me:

Okay, the Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow and the NYX Palette was gifted only. Total: 69 572 HUF (ca. 220 EUR) out of 10 000 HUF (ca. 32 EUR) used up, while 5,7 EUR was not for me at all (waste).

I hope you had enjoyed. How much you have spent this year? How much money you have wasted?

Xoxo,

My blushes and highlighters

Hi lovelies,

I have already posted my Foundation and Bronzer kits, so here we go with my blushes and highlighter. All of these products will be powder based and cruelty free. I do not have a cream blush now, if I would I just take a lipstick, but my Skin is combination oily so I do not use so much of cream products, only at Winter time.

Tarte- Paaarty

This a beautiful palette nude from their Amazonian Clay 12- hour blush in a deluxe size, just ideal light matt color for everyday use.

NYX- Crimson

True red high-definition blush, so highly pigmented, I just bought it for a ’20s inspired make up, but rather use it as an eyeshadow, it said the expiry in 6M after opening, come on… might be declutter it. It should be matt, but there are some clanky big white shimmer in it… so trash.

Nars-Orgasm

I think I do not need to say why I love it, it is the perfect peachy blush with a hint of golden shimmer, I have bought it before Nars went to China, so I will use it up!orgasm

Natasha Denona- Blush & Glow

I love the minis and it is my newest purchase, the blush is called golden coral, similar to Nars Orgasm, but much less of golden shimmer in it. The highlighter is all over glow #01 light is a frosty highlighter with a tiniest gold- pink and white shimmer, such a universal one. This is my ideal travel palette.

The Balm- Mary Lou Manizer

My golden highlight, also a love in my heart and it is such a huge pan. It is quit a multi porpuse one…

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.

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…

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,

 

 

Glamour days haul

Hi lovelies,

I am going to share a small haul again. Coupon days were last weekend, here is my purchases.

Honestly I have tried to minimize my spending due to our flat, to be able to purchase some nice stuff there, which I do not want to share now.

img_5155-1

Wednesday we have been at the two most common drugstores here at Rossmann and DM. Okay the dishwasher tabs are not on the picture, but these were all we have bought, so all the necessary ones. Yes I know not all of them are cruelty free, as I do not know any period toiletries company cruelty free here and my husband items- he is not in care of this cause… Nature Box is a big grey for me, because I still have not find the answer in their site, only that they are vegan.

Yes, I have not purchased any makeup, just have received a cherry colored lipglass (I have given it away already to my brother’s girlfriend) and a foundation from Tred it up, which is a German brand at DM and they are cruelty free. I have used to see the color of this Insta Ready Oil Free Makeup yet, which seem to be all right. It should be a light cover, slightly matte (silk matte) finish and it would cost only 3,4 EUR.img_5156-1

At Nyx I have bought Epic Ink Liner as a replacement of my L’Oréal one, I hope it will work. HD Finishing Powder in Translucent is a big cult, so as my MAC and Essence white ones over, it is time to try it, and it is seemed so good in a whole day work. I have also purchased a true red blush to replace my MAC Frankly Scarlett: Crimson, honestly at the store the tester was looked matt for me, but open it up it is seems like there are some shimmers- all right I will mainly use as an eyeshadow…

At Douglas I have found a new perfume Rochas- Mademoiselle, which was a love at first smell. So fresh and light which I love- fruity, rose and a bit of citrus like my everyday ones.img_5157-1

I have not purchased any clothes, only underwear, which were just before Glamour as Intimissimi has a recycle campaign, I rather take back 10 items and get 20% off on my all blacks.

Xoxo,

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 🙂
