20 roses, ramble

So I been missing in action again. I had turned 20, this Wednesday. Not a teen anymore, to be honest I still feel young, but a lot more lazy than I used to be.  2nd of May is my deadline at Uni, so I will be very busy this week, hopefully everything will go well and from then I am back to the blogging world! Promise. xx

yves rocher sexy pulp mascara

Don't all of us girls like to have a good mascara, this is a must for me! I just love having lengthen full eyelashes. I have no clue what going on, but my eyelashes on the right eye are playing around with me, it's so difficult to make them look good, I guess that may be because I like to sleep on my right side.

A while a go I had a chance to try out sample version of the Yves Rocher Sexy Pulp Mascara and I had fallen in love, but the price tag kept me away and now I am a happy owner of it again! I must say this is such a amazing mascara, I normally tend to go for plastic brush mascaras and I was slightly worried that I won't like this one because of the large brush. Surprise, it works so well with my eyelashes! The brush keeps each lash nicely separated, doesn't stick them together, so you won't end up with "spidery" eyelashes (overall I do like the spidery lashes look). The brush have a nice curve in the middle. What I like the most about this mascara that the formula isn't too wet, if you know what I mean, some mascaras are really wet and that just makes them difficult to use, so I tend to open them and leave them for a while, so the formula would became slightly more drier. Sexy Plup Mascara has a lightweight formula, so it doesn't feel heavy on the lashes and it keeps the curl in my lashes for longer. The mascara does add volume, as well as length, but I would say it's perfect mascara for long eyelashes owners (lucky). On the photo I am wearing two coats, the best way to add volume it's to wait and let each coat dry, then re-apply. It doesn't smudge. Overall it's a great mascara and I will definitely go back to it when I run out. Have any of you had a chance to try it out?

little mac haul

MAC STUDIO FIX FOUNDATION in NC15, MAC EYESHADOW (T-B) BEAUTY MARKED, STAR VIOLET, CRANBERRY, MAC PRO PALETTE

Oops I did it again! I decided to go and browse around the MAC counter, that was a very bad and harmful decision for my debit card.  For the past few days I got myself into using darker eyeshadow, I feel like they bring out the blue tone in my eyes. I normally stick to my brown shades, but this time I wanted something different. I recently done a post on my MAC quad palette, you can read more about it here. Finally got my hands on the MAC large palette, can't wait to build it up with beautiful colours.

Beauty Marked eyeshadow looks so beautiful, I have fallen in love with the glitter. It's very dark, would be amazing for smokey eye, I finally need to learn how to do it. Star Violet is a pinky-brown plum, looks beautiful all over the lid, with a darker shade in the crease. Cranberry is a very popular shade, it's a reddish plum with pink shimmer, such a beautiful unique colour! If you have any colour recommendation, please feel free to let me know.  I just can't wait to experiment with it. I have very mix opinion on the MAC foundations, but as I am a foundationholic, I wanted to try out the MAC Studio Fix Foundation, I don't have any opinion on it yet. Have any of you had a chance to try it out? What do you think about it? I must say that MAC has a pretty alright prices for foundation, as for a high end brand, and the colour range is amazing.

march favorites

KIEHL'S SUPERBLY SMOOTHING ARGAN CONDITIONER, DOVE FIRMING MOISTURISING LOTION, BOURJOIS PERFECTING FOUNDATION, NARS CONCEALER, CLARINS HYDRAQUENCH CREAM, REAL TECHNIQUES MIRACLE SPONGE 

I seriously have no idea where is this year going, it's April already. I am turning 20 this month, can't believe that I won't be a teen anymore. My first year of uni is almost over and spring break have started, so hopefully I will have more time for the blog. This month I been trying out lots of new beauty products and I went back to one of my favorite Dove Firming Moisturising Lotion, I just love the lotion for the smell, which last on the body for the entire day! It's moisturise my skin really well, the firming will work when you combine it with exercise.

Haircare, as well as skincare is my new obsession! My hair finally got back to the length it was before, but not long ago I have re-ombred it, so I pretty much damaged the ends again. The Kiehl's Superbly Smoothing Argan Conditioner is my life saver, the conditioner keeps my hair moisturised and it also helps me to tame the frizz. Recently I went through a stage, that I just didn't like any foundation on me, there was something wrong with every foundation I own. So I decided to try out a different technique to apply the foundation, the Real Techniques Miracle Sponge is just amazing! It's a miracle worker! I always wet it before applying foundation, now I am really curious about the actually Beauty Blender. Bourjois Perfecting Foundation is very creamy and has a light formula. The colour match is amazing, match my pale skin perfectly and last on the skin for good 8hours. The Nars Concealer is so creamy! I went out to try out Nars foundation and the lady have applied this on me and I loved it, so I just couldn't not buy it. The concealer cover all imperfections so well. As my skin been playing around with me, I decided to try out the Clarins HydraQuench Cream to keep my skin moisturied. As I am typing I notice that pretty much everything in this post is about moisturising, oh well. The cream works really well with my skin, it absorbs into the skin really well, as well as it's a great make-up base.
