Peel off LipTint from Aliexpress

Lip Tints are one of the hottest trends in the world for the past year and of course,  I wanted to try it!But where to get it for an affordable price? ALIEXPRESS! So I found this one, a peel off kind.Got the Romantic Bear lip tint in color Sexy Red

The manufacturer promises:
– 12 Hours Lasting + Moisturizing + Waterproof
– Colorful, glossy, charming lip gloss.
– The lip membrane in accordance with the lip spread evenly, then wait 5-10 minutes to dry.
– Turns your lip color in beautiful color within 5-10 minutes

My Thoughts:

Shade:3/5 stars

stars 3 5

It’s very pigmented when you first put it on….but after all the peeling the color is very settled.

 

Long Lasting:2/5 stars 

2 out of 5 stars

Such a shame but on my lips, it stays just max 2 h.Very disappointing.

Formula:2,5/5 stars

2.5-out-of-5-stars-rating

Imagine when you go to the dentist  and he gives you a mild anesthesia for the procedure, well it’s the exact feeling you will have on your lips after using this product.And it’s messy ..really messy

My Final Thoughts:2.5-out-of-5-stars-rating

Very Disappointing.Will I purchase it again?No…But you know what maybe I was just unlucky with my experience with this product, becouse my friend has it(just in different color ) and she loves it.So if you want to try it give it a go, it’s very affordable so why not.

Clinique High Impact Mascara review

I decided to splurge a little and treat myself buying an expensive mascara on my trip to Stockholm.After a long “window shopping ” at the cruise ship duty-free store, I got this one.I loved the packaging and Clinique is one of my favorite “high end” brand.I have been tasting it for fee months and here are my thoughts, but first…

The manufacturer promises:

  • Benefits: Volumized
  • Kicks up the volume and length of each and every lash.
  • Pure, deep colour only adds to the impact.
  • Lashes get instant volume and length.
  • Ophthalmologist tested.

 

My Thoughts:
Shade:5/5 stars 
5star
shade maskara
Very rich black color.

The Wand: 4/5 stars 

4-stars

mascara 1

Really generic, but still good.Helps you to comb your lashes from the base of lashes till the end.Gives natural lashes look.

The Formula: 3,5/5

3-5-stars

Very liquidy, if you start to blink right after applying the mascara it will smudge…a lot.And it doesn’t really give you the volume it claims to give.But it’s long lasting, that’s always a plus.

My Final Thoughts:

4-stars

If you need something that will give you the “I don’t have makeup on” look and you can splurge on mascara then this one is for you.Will I repurchase it?Not really…it’s too expensive and I like having more volume on my lashes. I have some other drugstore ones I liked more(for myself )then this one.Is it a bad mascara?No, it, I did enjoy it and still am, it’s just too expensive.

So tell me in comments,

What’s your favorite mascara?

Bioderma: Sebium Hydra Moisturising Compensating Care cream Review

My skin is oily and acne prone, the whole package in other words.Out of despair, because my old face cream made things worse, I got to Pharmacy and said to the lady there “Give me something that will help all of this!” pointing at my face.And She gave me this one.I’m using it for almost 3 months (and it’s still pretty full ) and can say it did make my face better.

So let’s start with the review (You can find more about it here)

The manufacturer promises: 

  • All skin, including oily skin, needs to be moisturised, since it can temporarily be dried and/or irritated (specific treatments, external stress, etc.). Sébium Hydra is specifically formulated to biologically offset these short-term imbalances.
  • The moisturising (glycerine) and restructuring (ceramides) agents in Sébium Hydra combat desquamation and sensations of tightness.
  • Powerful soothing agents (enoxolone, allantoin) reduce redness and soothe the skin.
  • The D.A.F. (Dermatological Advanced Formulation) patented natural complex increases the skin’s tolerance threshold.
  • Sébium Hydra also contains the Fluidactiv exclusive patented complex which biologically regulates sebum quality, keeping pores from becoming clogged and limiting the formation of blemishes.

My Thoughts:

Consistency: 3/5 stars

stars 3 5

It’s very creamy and rich.Really I wouldn’t expect that from this kind of cream, but surprisingly if you put just a little bit on your face, it’s just the right amount of moisture for your oily skin after the harsh cleanser. So you ask, why then not 5 stars if it’s so good?!Well, it’s easy to go overboard with this cream and make your skin more oily then it already is.

 

 

Absorbed into the skin: 4/5 stars

4-stars

Really well.Doesn’t leaves a sticky feeling if you put a little amount.

in skin cream

The quality of my skin after use: 3,5/5 stars

3-5-stars

It did get better but not perfect .If you use this cream with anything other than Bioderma sebium gel moussant  your face WILL get really oily (I tried with 2 other faces washes, it doesn’t work)

Overall:3,5/5 stars

stars 3 5

Will I repurchase this cream?Yes, I did like it and it’s perfect under foundation.Yes, it’s a little pricey but I think it’s worth it!

Tell me in comments Do you have a favorite face cream and why it’s your favorite?

Vegan Diet for Beginners By Sam Kuma


I’m vegetarian from birth (thanks, mom, and dad)and recently I found out I’m lactose intolerant( “Lucky me”).So I’m getting more and more interested in Vegan lifestyle, and getting a cookbook is the best way(in mine opinion)to just try if this lifestyle is for you. And when I got the opportunity to get my hands on this one I was really excited.

Vegan: Vegan Diet for Beginners: 76 Recipes and 8 Weeks of Diet Plans

Book Description: What can a Vegan diet do for you? Lose weight, lower cholesterol, save the environment; you name it. 
This is a complete beginners’ guide that you will struggle to find on the market. A total of 8 weeks of diet plans focused only on vegan recipes. 
Are you curious about veganism or the vegan lifestyle? Do you want to start taking care of your body and perhaps the planet as well? Do you want to lead a healthier life? Did you simply want to give the vegan diet a try? But you don’t know where to start. You don’t know the kind of foods that you can eat. Then this book would be the perfect choice for you. This book will provide you with a diet plan that is perfect for beginners. 
There are many health benefits of following a vegan diet and its time to reap these benefits. You will lose weight and you will be able to keep it off, you will be eating better and healthier foods, and not just this, but you will also be making a difference in society! You will be doing all this while getting healthier! Isn’t that quite rewarding?

My Thoughts: I loved this cookbook.The recipes were interesting, creative and easy to understand(even if you are new to cooking in general).And some of the recipes were Dairy(big plus for me ), gluten-free, raw.So if you are new to Veganism/vegetarianism this book is perfect for you.Some of my favorite from this cookbook  “Lettuce Wraps”(very easy to make ) “Raw Kale Salad”(my mom’s favorite) and “Creamy Tomato Soup”( because I’m obsessed with tomato soup at this moment ). A little downside, I couldn’t find some ingredients for the recipes in my country and I would love to have pictures of the dishes in the book for reference(I have an ebook, maybe in physical they have them), But overall I think it’s a great cookbook.

My rating:4/5 stars4-stars

Max Factor Lasting Performance Foundation review

My skin lately was starting to get really bad(I have acne prone skin ), after finishing my Catrice All Matt Plus Foundation, I decided to get something different .A little more expensive and from a brand I knew was good. So I got Max Factor Lasting Performance Foundation in the shade 101 Ivory Beige .It was the lightest shade that you could get in the store, I didn’t have the time or patience to look for something other, So I just got this one.Let’s start with what does it claims to do.

The manufacturer promises: A touch-proof formula for a natural skin look that lasts, and lasts, and lasts.

  • A natural skin look that lasts all day
  • The long wear formula contains touch-proof technology (put it to the test now)
  • Great design, same great formula
  • Always looks natural. Never looks greasy and never feels heavy

 

My Thoughts:

Shade: 2,5/5 stars2.5-out-of-5-stars-rating

I have really pale skin(like ghost white ) and this foundation is more for “normal” people skin, If I have it on (and down to my neck ) you can’t tell that color is wrong, I just look “normal “.It’s slightly lighter in the photos than in reality.

 

Long Lasting:4/5 stars

4-stars

It stays on ALL DAY .Just put it on in the morning, powder on top and you are good for the day.

Formula:3,5/5 stars

3-5-stars

It’s good if you have oily skin.Doesn’t break me out.Doesn’t make my face extra oily, BUT it does sometimes go on streaky.

My Final Thoughts:

stars-3-good

If you need something Long Lasting this one is for you .I do enjoy it.Will I repurchase it? No(You can see the color difference in the picture).But it’s overall a good product .

If you have tried this one what did you think of it?Let me know in comments

Based on the 2000 song “Stan” by American rapper Eminem,[1] the term has frequently been used to describe artist devotees whose fanaticism matches the severity of the obsessive character in the song
