I think the title says it all. I thought about separating it in three posts, but in the end decided against. So let’s start.
Here’s a quick swatch of Essie’s Tart Deco. It is a gorgeous bright peachy orange crème. In the bottle it looks more orange, but on the nail it dries to a nice bright salmon-y peachy colour. It looks surprisingly flattering against my skintone.
clay masks, along with moisturizing masks are a must have in my routine. Having combination skin with enlarged pores often results in clogged pores, so my skin benefits from using clay masks. After finishing Sisley Tropical Resins Mask I had no idea what to buy instead. It was approximately at the same time when Freeman launched in drugstores, so after hearing a lot of rave reviews, especially for this mask, I bought three masks. Today I’m going to review Clay Mask with Avocado & Oatmeal.
Grey isn’t a typical summer colour (although with the weather we are having I find it rather appropriate) but I wanted to write a review of Les Gris as it seems that they will be discontinued. However, grey eyeshadow lovers need not to worry as a new grey quad will be a part of Guerlain’s fall collection.
Here comes a bit of brightness on the nails. It’s been a while since my last nail polish post so I wanted to show you a gorgeous Deborah Lippmann in Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.
When I first saw the bottle shot of Essie’s Belugaria, I was really intrigued. It looked like a nice big glitter in a black base nail polish – elegant with an edge. Imagine my disappointment when I saw what a chunky mess it is.
Eight months forward, I decided to try some Ciate nail polishes. I was always intrigued by the cute bottle with a black bow on it, but I couldn’t find any retailer willing to ship the nail polish to me. Then I went to fragrancedirect as I was not willing to pay full price for a nail polish which I might hate. The shades were limited (usually discontinued or limited colours) and the name Jewellery Box really stood out. I didn’t bother googling the swatches, so I was pleasantly surprised once it arrived.
I guess there’ll be a part three, too. I’m still waiting for some products – it’s been over a month and I think it is mostly due to vacations that my post is delayed. Well, these are the cons of on-line shopping.
It seems that my skincare obsession continues, judging by the amount of mini skincare sets I’ve ordered. Even though I have found HG in practically every category, I still have to test more. Fortunately, some brands were kind enough to launch mini/discovery sets which give you enough to properly test a big range of products without breaking the bank. After all, it is easier to throw out a mini than a full size.
