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.

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,

 

 

October mini haul

Hi lovelies,

This is a mini haul of the end of October, yes I already had Glamour days haul  and these were mainly ordered by that time, just the only arrived now.

Firstly, Tarte had their 18th Birthday and had some offer like free shipping without limitation on one day so I have ordered their Shape Tape Concealer in the shade Light Natural and I was so lucky winning their Birthday set, which was coming with my order (even thought they have written ca. 3 days later).

Birthday set came in a sequined cluth and the inside:

  • Tartelette Flirt palette: cardboard palette with 6 mini shades, perfect for travel :4 of those are matte and 2 shimmery, color touch is just the dupe of MAC Expensive pink
  • Lifted Mascara: Brown sporty line waterproof ( I just think so mascara),
  • Lip sculptor: intoxicating limited edition shade with lipstick and lip gloss on the other side,
  • Tartist: Totes lipliner- hot pink color liner.

The Body Shop: I have repurchased my favourite clay mask: Himalayan Charcoal (update soon regarding my skincare) and they have launched a Micellar water in their Camomile line, so badly want to try.

Bonami has written after a week of Glamour that they can not sent the velvet puff, which I have ordered and paid, so they will send me back my money… pff ever the worst costumer service communication which I have heard, no excuse or sorry they are advertising something that they can not send to the costumers and they do not write one day after your purchase (AKA I have lost the opportunity to order with 20% off from somewhere else) and they do not offer any compensation, when I have written back and what would be my compensation, they wrote back 2 000 HUF (cupon) -which is less than 10% of my order- ca. 8 USD- are you kidding? How you have ever considered that I will order from you anything else? They should come to a Hotel cross training of handling complaints. NEVER EVER AGAIN… On Saturday they have send an email, it is on it way, how comes? So the whole we can not fullfill your request was just a lie. Monday the Courier company started to deliver it, of course they called me when I was busy at work, tried to call them back 20 minutes later(and 5 times more) and just have tracked on their site that they took it back to the sender… WHY? How I can call them back if they do not pick up the phone at all? They should try 3 times to deliver before send it back, what did I do wrong OMG? So for 2 days now, I am just calling the customer service and try to get my baby back… so horrible.

  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.

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

marcjacobs

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

giorgio

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.
    • $45/0,17oz at chanel.com

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….

Highlighter:

  • Hourglass- Ambient Lighting Palette: 3 pans have every color you need for a pale skin, it is comes with a nice big mirror.
    • $62/3×3,3g=0,11oz at hourglasscosmetics.com

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

allure-rca-2017-kat-von-d-tattoo-liner-review

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…
    • $29,50/10ml=0,33 oz at sephora.com

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.

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.
