Aliexpress Haul “everything under 5 euros”

Hello, My Darlings! How are you all doing? Finally, my orders from Aliexpress are coming in, most of those are Holiday gifts for my friends and family. If you don’t know AliExpress is a popular online store for buying products at much cheaper prices than Amazon and other similar services. Everything is under 5 euros, so very affordable!

Let’s dive into the goodies!

VPB S32 earphones

The best cheap earphones I have ever got! This is my second order from this particular store, so I have already tested those earphones and I can say…those are heavy-duty(I’m not gentle with my earphones, so I change them regularly), and the sound is pretty good. In this order, I got one pair for myself as a backup and one for my brother as a stocking stuffer. The shipping was super fast too, A little over a week to Latvia.

Men’s Autumn Summer Socks 

Another stocking stuffer for my brother. I know it wasn’t intentional, but the little color stripe looks like a Latvian flag. That’s the main reason why I got this pair, and the price was amazing(around 0.80 euro). Quality is pretty good, definitely stretchy cotton. Would recommend!

Cotton Christmas Socks

Aren’t those cute?! Super affordable and super cute. To be honest, I got the cheaper Santa socks, but they send me those …I’m not mad about it. Shipping was fast, the quality is okay. I paid 0.56 euro.

925 Sterling Silver Leaves Long Tassels Earrings

This is a gift for my mom. She loves silver jewelry, and those looked like something she will enjoy. It was an 11.11 deal and I paid around 1.33 euro I think. The quality is amazing and it came with a pouch and a cloth to polish earrings. Very happy with the purchase. The shipping was a little over two weeks to Latvia from China.

My review of the Lemon palette by Beauty Glaze

Beauty Glazed Official Aliexpress store

Packaging

It’s nice, sturdy, sleek and really pretty! It has a magnetic closure and that’s amazing. It’s cardboard box,very generic in that sense

eyeshadow for blog

Texture and Quality

The matt shades are decent, but the shimmery ones are the bomb! This palette has the same problem the “Lemon” one has, the shimmery shades don’t work well with synthetic brushes, use your fingers for the best color payoff. I don’t use an eyeshadow primer, and those shadows stay on for 10 h straight,but…the downside the blue shades do stain.

Swatches

There are 3 matt shades and 6 shimmery ones! Here are swatches without a primer and put on with a finger.

My thoughts

Quality

5/5 stars

1483933

I’m impressed! The Jade Roller is all made from “jade”(the roller part and the handle),I don’t know if that’s real Jade but feels really sturdy. It’s a pretty heavy product and that’s amazing. The “spiky” part is much more gentle on the skin than I anticipated and the “smooth” part is really nice on the skin. I like the “gold” details

jade roller

Does it work?

For me personally?No! But for my Mom?! She loved it!I tried it for a week ,every morning and I will be honest…it was painful. It felt like I was massaging my bones not skin. My Mom on the other hand loves it! She said it felt very relaxing and helped with under-eye bags. So it’s not for everyone.

Would I recommend?

It’s pretty cheap ,so why not ? Yes,it’s not for everyone ,but it’s still an interesting product to try.

You can find this Jade Roller here

I got some new Stuff- Avon “Skin and Body care” Haul

Hello, My Darlings! And Hey if you are new here, it’s so nice to see you! Today I want to talk about some goodies I got from Avon. I didn’t really plan to get anything this month, but me being sick for 2 weeks and the catalog just sitting on the table…well I made an order(yes, I have no self-control when it comes to pretty cosmetic bottles). So I paid for all of those goodies around 20 euros, cheaper than our drugstores (We Love Saving Money) . Let’s dive into the Haul!

ede0755338e6a4e41de86c09614db4f9_decorative-underline-clipart-clipartfest-drawing-art-_370-370

avon for blog

Naturals skincare Hydrating “Aloe & Cotton” face cream and Naturals skincare Hydrating “Aloe & Cotton” face mask

Why I got it – I got those both for my mom. She has dry skin and this sounded like something she would enjoy. The face cream and mask has a very nice light aloe scent(you know, THAT scent). Isn’t greasy.

 

avon for blog 7

Naturals hair care Full Volume Shampoo (raspberry & hibiscus)

Why I got it – This is a HUGE bottle(and I love it)! The price was decent (3,88 euro for 700 ml bottle) so I decided to get it. I already tried it, and I can say I like it. It does give you volume, but not over the top one. Now I want to try more of those shampoos.

avon for blog 2

Simply delicate Calming fragrance-free Feminine wash 

Why I got it – I needed one, and this was at a very good discount(originally around 3 euros, I got it for 1.40 euro). I liked it,does the job . Overall a good product!

avon for blog 1

Senses Infusions Collection zen Mandarin & Jasmin shower gel and

Senses 2-in-1 for men Energising amber & cedarwood hair and body wash 

Why I got it –  This was a set deal (2 for 2.99 euro). You can never have too many shower gels in my opinion. Both of them has an amazing scent, and the quality of the actual product is great(I really love Avon’s shower gel formula)

 

avon for blog 5

Naturals Body care black Cherry & Nutmeg shower gel

Why I got it -Another Shower gel! I got this as a gift for buying over 19 euros on Avon’s online store. Can say I will definitely get another one after using this one up.

 

avon for blog 6

French Lilac BubbleBath

Why I got it – This smells like unicorns, rainbows and my childhood. We had 2 big french lilac bushes around my house when I was growing up and the smell always made excited for spring. I will definitely buy some more.

 

avon for blog 4

Cherish Roll-on deodorant

Why I got it – My deodorant was running out, and I needed a new one. I decided to get this one because I have never tried Avon’s perfumed deodorants and the price was good(around 2 euros). And I can say…the scent is phenomenal! It’s so fresh, but very feminine at the same time. LOve LOve love it!

 

avon for blog 3

Nourishing with cocoa butter Hand cream for dry to extra dry skin

Why I got it – This I got as a gift for my best friends(Alina and Agness). We have this tradition , we get each other little gifts for the international women’s day and those looked so cute. So I got them those hand creams. I really hope they will love.

“Pink Dream”

This look was inspired by the Pink dress, I saw it and understood it’s the perfect dress for Valentine’s day. It can be casual or dressed up, whatever the occasion this dress can work. I made this look to be very romantic, but comfortable. I love those earrings, so simple but at the same time classy. Great look for a casual date or a late brunch.

“Green with Envy”

Isn’t this dress so cute?! I love the color of it and while making this #ootd, I remembered the perfume “Gabriella” by Chanel. It’s such a strong but at the same time feminine scent. That’s why I tried making this look more feminine but at the same time “strong” and confident.

ede0755338e6a4e41de86c09614db4f9_decorative-underline-clipart-clipartfest-drawing-art-_370-370

Packaging

4 stars

I really liked the packaging! The box was sealed in a plastic wrapping, I really appreciate stuff like that. The bottle has an interesting form and the black “brush” on it makes it extra fancy. This would make a great gift.

 

Quality and Scent

4 stars

The quality of the bottle and the actual perfume is much better than I anticipated. The perfume has a pretty good staying power on the skin (3h-4h), stays on the clothes a little bit longer than on the skin. The scent of the perfume ..the best way to describe it is “Spicy but sweet oriental scent”. Some said it’s similar to the Chanel no.5 just cheaper, but I would disagree. I hate Chanel no.5 with a passion and this perfume is nothing like it, it’s much sweeter than the Chanel one.

ede0755338e6a4e41de86c09614db4f9_decorative-underline-clipart-clipartfest-drawing-art-_370-370

Overall

Pros  

  • Affordable price( I got it for 16 euros- 2 bottles of far away and far away rebel perfume)
  • Long-Lasting
  • Cute bottle
  • Makes a great gift
  • It’s a “vintage” scent

Cons

  • You can only get it just from an Avon distributor
  • The scent is not universal,so many people will not like it

New Year Outfit Ideas(Aliexpress Inspired)

Photo by Lauren Fleischmann on Unsplash

Hello, My Darlings nad Hey If You are new here!It’s so nice to see you on my blog. Can you imagine next month is 2020?! This year was a rollercoaster of emotions, the first time my job made me have panic attacks, I had lots of personal growth and my heart was broken more than once . In simple words, 2019 was not what I imagined, but I’m thankful that those things happened because now I can clearly see where I want to be in the future. I really hope 2020 will bring many blessings! But now let’s talk about fashion. For me, the New Year celebrations are more relaxed than most of my friends, so my #OOTD’s are not as “fancy”.I hope you will find the Inspiration for the “ideal” outfit for the New Year!

essence Colour Boost”mad about matte” Liquid Lipstick -review

s-l300About the Product :

The liquid lipstick dries into a powdery-matte finish and covers the lips in high-coverage colours like nude, red, pink or purple. The texture feels lovely and light on the lips and is kiss-proof!

  • Liquid lipstick
  • Powdery-matte finish
  • Feels light on the lips

 

There are 10 colors in this matt range.

MY THOUGHTS 

Packaging

5/5 stars

5 stars

It’s pretty simple packaging. I expected it to be like the “classical lipgloss” tube but in reality, it has a brush, an interesting brush in my opinion. Easy to use, travel-friendly!

Texture and Quality

4/5 stars

4 stars

liquid lipstick

I have the colors 04 mad matters and 09 magnetic gloom, both of those are such a beautiful and rich liquid lipsticks. It does dry on the lips really quickly, so you need to work fast with it. You need just one coat to get the full pigment, but the problem is you can’t reapply without taking the first coat off, that’s the only downside. These lipsticks have a very strong vanilla scent.

OVERALL
4/5 stars

4 stars

I’m very excited and happy I got those. They are affordable but still good quality. I would recommend you to try those!

 Pros  

  • Long-lasting
  • Cute packaging
  • Affordable
  • Easy to apply

Cons

  • Stains lips
  • Hard to reapply
  •  Drying

Dream catcher 

Don’t know why but Dream Catchers just “screams” Fall to me, they look amazing in any decor, and this black one is perfect for the spooky season. To be honest, I have a love/hate relationship with Dream Catchers, I love the idea of dream catchers and the aesthetics of them but hate that I always have nightmares when it’s in my bedroom. That’s why I put it in the living room.

Leaf Fairy Lights 

I’m so getting this for myself! I love how cute it looks and how affordable it is ( would look amazing in pictures, let’s be honest ). Just put it up and instantly your room looks cozy and ready for fall.
