How-to: Soap Brows

Soap brows aren't anything new. I believe it is a method that has been used in the past as well, but it's gotten a bit more popular in the past few years. Many makeup artist that I follow swear by this method and this kind of brows are almost signature for their aesthetic. I have been avoiding them for a long time, but since trying it out and making it adjust to my style, I have grown to really like it.

Review: Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colour - 600 Coral Sass

I believe these Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colours are one of the better ones in drugstore, if you like matte liquid lipstick. I am not a fan of such formulas, because my lips are too dry to handle wearing them. 

Review: NYX Slim Lip Pencil - Nude Beige, Mauve, Mahogany

I bought two of these NYX Lip Pencils in Bipa in Austria once and ever since, I loved the formula and wanted to get more. I got one more shade, but would love to try out even more in the future. It's that regular lip pencil formula, but the thing that got me the most is the shade selection. There is a ton of nudes to choose from. 

Winged eyeliner for slightly hooded eyes

I've gotten questions here and there about how I do my winged eyeliner, since I obviously have slightly hooded eyes. Obviously, on my makeup photos I lift my brows to make my eye shape look lifted, because otherwise you wouldn't see all the pretty colors I have on. In real life I can go from slightly hooded to almost completely hooded eye shape, depending on how tire or puffy my eyes are. So I thought I would share one of the ways to do winged liner, if you're like me and you still want to wear it. 

New In (28)

These are products that I got a while ago and I already had the chance to test almost all of them out. These new ins are usually quite long and that's because I forget to post them and then there's suddenly too many new products to talk about. But just skip to those that interest you. I have a short review of all of them. 

Review: theBalm Mary-Dew Manizer Liquid Mary-Lou Manizer

Mary-Dew Manizer was on my wishlist for a while. My lovely friend got it for me for my birthday. I've had it on my wishlist, since I've always loved the shade and sheen of Mary-Lou Manizer, which is pressed version and this one is the same, but in a liquid formula. Liquids always tend to look more natural, but I love that this one still packs a punch of shine, if you apply it heavier. 

February 2020 Favorites

I am so predictable in my makeup ways. Whenever I get something new, I have to test it out and if I like it, that's all I'll use for a while. Here are some of my favorites that I've been using a lot this month. 

Review: Catrice Brush Ink Tattoo Liner Waterproof - 010 Black Waterproof

I almost never get excited about drugstore eyeliners, because I in general dislike felt tip and regular liquid formulas. So when I saw Catrice was coming out with a brush tip, I knew I had to try it out. I am always trying to find European version of my beloved Clio Kill Black Liner, because it's a hassle to get it from Asia. I think this one might be a good enough replacement. 

MAC Studio Face And Body Foundation - C1

MAC is one of those staple makeup brands, because it has been on the market for a while and they were one of those brands that always had a wide range of shades. I often get a bit disappointed with their products, because my expectations are too high. Their Face and Body Foundation is one of those staples that a lot of makeup artists swear by and I too wanted to see, if it will impress me that much.

Review: Inglot AMC Eyeliner Gel Matte 77 Black and Duraline

Inglot is one of those brands that I didn't hear a lot about before I started to get more into makeup. Back in the day on YouTube everyone seemed to be using their gel eyeliner and since then I've always wanted to try out some of their products. I already reviewed some of their pigments and contour powder and now I'll talk more about two of their most popular products - AMC Eyeliner Gel and Duraline.

Flushed and Rosy

I'm posting it on Valentine's Day, because it's a very romantic flushed and rosy makeup look. I had this very flushed sheeny cheek in my mind and I created the rest of the look around it. There's just something romantic about this look to me and I feel like it would work for many skin tones and eye color.

Review: Benefit I'm Hotter Outdoors Set (Hoola, Roller Lash, Gimme Brow)

I came upon this cute tin set of three Benefit products called I'm Hotter Outdoors and it was actually on sale. It costed less then the Hoola bronzer itself, which was on my wishlist for so long. I way eyeing it and this was the perfect opportunity to finally get it. 

January 2020 Favorites

January may be one of the most depressed months, but it's one of my favorites, because it's my birthday month. And to me it always resembles sort of a new start, since it's the beginning of a new year. I have received quite a few new makeup products and some made it into my favorites and I've been using them a lot. 

New In (27)

It's been a really long time since my last New In post and I've accumulated quite a few new products. Especially over the holidays, when I treated myself with new products and I also got sent some packages from brands. I've already tried all of these out and loved most of them.

Review: Avon Mark Prism Lipstick - Orbital Lust

Avon Mark Prism is a new range of Avon's lipsticks. I've had the chance to try out shade Orbital Lust. It's one of those creamier formulas that contains small shimmer which should give it that prismatic sheen on your lips.

Review: Inglot AMC Pure Pigment Eye Shadow - Silver Dollar and Cosmic Glow

I had the chance to get some of Inglot's pigments straight from Poland, which meant the price was much more affordable than buying online. Their AMC Pure Pigment Eye Shadows are one of their most known products and everyone seems to rave about them. I was never a fan of pigments before, but anything shimmery always sounds interesting. 

2019 Favorites

One year has come around yet again and I've gathered all of the products that I've tried out in 2019 for the first time and that have seriously impressed me. I'm talking skin care, hair care as well as some makeup. It's all in here. If you'd like to see more products that I have been loving in 2019, not just the new ones, you can go to Directory and scroll to the bottom to my monthly favorites. 

Review: Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation - Y225 Marble

In the past year I have researched for new foundations, especially ones that makeup artist's love and recommend and Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Insivible Cover Foundation always comes highly rated and recommended. It was hard to get a hold of it and choose the shade only based off of internet swatches, but I did and it didn't necessary blew me away as I expected it to.
