My thoughts :

PACKAGING

The mascara came in a beautiful sealed box with all the ingrediant list and information. The actual mascara tube is made from very sturdy plastic.I really like that the parts Lashprimer and Mascara are labeled.

On the box you can find a QR code and scratch number to make sure your product is original . Such a great idea and truly ,mine was original!And of course the “best before” is a good thing too.

QUALITY AND HOW IT APPLIES

The first you put on Primer. I do around 3/4 coats of it on my lashes. It has little fibers in it ,and they do get into your eyes. It’s not the most pleasant experience,but it’s nothing critical.

After it, we get to the mascara. The want looks pretty average, but the way it’s curved…that’s something new. It’s slightly angled, so you can really get into the corners of your eyes.

What can I say about the application…it’s easy but time-consuming. It’s not bam and ready. You truly need like 5 min just for the mascara(and even more if you are using the primer), and in the mornings sometimes it’s not an option. Another not the greatest thing…it’s messy. But, it’s truly waterproof…like you can go swimming with it and it’s still in your eyes! And it tear-proof(I tested it a few times…don”t ask)

PROS  
  • long-lasting
  • Waterproof
  • Affordable
  • Great gift idea
  • Travel friendly
CONS
  • It’s messy

Overall I really like it and liked it!It’s such a great mascara for summer.

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

 

1.Hand cream “Barkhatnyye ruchki”

I got this one as a little surprise from my dear friend Alina(she always gets me little gifts, how did I deserve such an amazing friend I will never know). I have already used this cream for 2 weeks now and can say it’s pretty decent. Doesn’t make my skin feel all greasy, and that’s a BIG plus. Overall would recommend

About the product :Hand cream with Shee butter and Hyaluron and vitamin B5.The high-quality cream “Barkhatnie Ruchki” won the recognition and love of millions of women! It provides complete effective care for the skin, improves skin condition, takes care, and makes the skin of your hands soft as velvet!

2. Maybelline Fit Me matt + porelles foundation for Normal to Oily skin(110 Porcelain)

I have tried this one before,and if I remember correctly I liked it. Right now, by swatching it I can say it’s not as full coverage as I like. It’s more a natural/medium coverage foundation so I don’t know how I feel about it. The color was a pretty okay color match, would love it to be a little bit lighter but we can’t have it all(yes yes I know, I’m white as a Ghost).

About the product : Fit Me® Matte + Poreless Foundation face makeup. This lightweight foundation mattifies and refines pores and leaves a natural, seamless finish.

3.The RIVAL loves me Primer Matt & Poreless

It has cute packaging,it’s vegan and super affordable(around 3 euros). So of course I got it!Haven’t tried it yet but by swatching it on my skin I can say I really like the texture. It’s not silicony or sticky.

About the product : The RIVAL loves me Primer Matt & Poreless has a matt effect, has a pore-refining effect, and prepares the skin optimally for the subsequent make-up. Skin compatibility dermatologically confirmed. Use: Apply to the face every morning after cleansing and massage in gently. Now the skin is ready for the makeup!

4. essence eyebrow designer(02 brown)

It’s like…my 5th pencil already!I WOULD DIE FOR THIS PENCIL!!!!It’s amazing,truly. One of my holy grail products I love and will always buy. It stays on the whole day,is not waxy and it’s easily to draw with . And of course it’s affordable,and that’s always a plus.

About the product :who says you can’t have it all? tame, define & shape your brows with an eyebrow pencil and brush all in one! a smooth pencil to define, outline, and fill in brows. blend seamlessly and comb with attached brush.

5.Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder

Another one of my all time favorite products! Yes,it can look ashy ..but my skin is like…white so It’s perfect for me.

About the product: If you prefer pressed powder, this fine, compact powder is for you! It can be applied above foundation to mattify your skin and set your make-up. For a matt, natural and smooth complexion. It’s perfect when you’re out and about with your girls!

6.essence smoothie gloss(01 crazy mango)

I got it as a gift for purchase,and I’m obsessed! It’s not sticky ,has a nice light scent(and it’s yummy,I tried it…You are welcome!)

About the product : as trendy as fruit smoothies: the lipglosses in the five fragrances mango, peach, strawberry, raspberry and blackberry – all with medium coverage. the cute lipglosses give you the feeling that you have the aromatic fruits right on your lips! each gloss has the colour of the fruit on its packaging

My Thoughts :

IMG_20200801_150238

Packaging

It’s really bulky, so usually, I just put it in a smaller container for everyday use.

Quality and Scent

This is our 3 bottle of this shampoo, my mom loves it so we always have it in our house. It has a very nice caramel scent ,it’s not overbearing on your hair but you can definitely smell it across the room when someone is having a shower. How I already said my mom loves it , it makes her hair shiny and easy to brush… I, on the other hand, it always makes my hair frizzy. Like REALLY frizzy. Yes it feels healthy and my scalp feels nice…but my hair looks crazy ,don’t know how or why, but that’s how it is for me.

OVERALL

A good family type of shampoo for an affordable price.

jake-weirick-Q_RBVFFXR_g-unsplash

 Pros  
  • Great scent
  • Lots of product in the bottle
  • Great for the whole family
  • Affordable
Cons
  • Not travel friendly
  • Makes my hair frizzy

Nivea Colour Protect mild Shampoo- Review

About the Product:

Nivea Colour Protection Mild Shampoo (250 ml), Gentle Nourishing Shampoo with color care complex hair shampoo for healthy, colored hair

  • Colour protection – The mild Nivea Colour Protection Shampoo nourishes colored hair particularly intensively and protects the hair color for longer color shine.
  • Colour care complex – with every use, the nourishing Nivea shampoo with its color care complex makes dyed hair noticeably supple.
  • pH balance: thanks to its pH-optimised formula, the shampoo is particularly mild on hair and scalp and harmonizes with your natural pH value.
  • Gentle cleansing: the shampoo gently cleanses the scalp. At the same time, it strengthens the hair structure and intensively nourishes for naturally beautiful hair

My Thoughts 

IMG_20200801_150517

PACKAGING

Nothing fancy about it, just a simple shampoo bottle. It’s really easy to use, so no complaints there! 

TEXTURE AND QUALITY

Mmmkay, the name says it all, it’s a very mild shampoo. Yes, your hair color will not fade, and yes you will clean your hair…but it’s not a great shampoo if you have very oily skin and need a little bit more to clean your scalp. I think it’s more for people with sensitive scalp and colored hair. Overall a decent shampoo for the money.

OVERALL

jake-weirick-Q_RBVFFXR_g-unsplash

Pros  

  •  Hair color doesn’t fade
  • Makes your hair feel nice and silky
  • Affordable(at least in Latvia)
  • Has a very light scent, not overbearing

Cons

  • Not a lot of product in the packaging

My Thoughts 

IMG_20200801_150707

I love products from this range, the Scrub/Mask, and the face wash is phenomenal so I was so excited when my friend Alina gave this one as an early Name day gift. I have tried this just two times now, so of course, my thoughts can change with time and use, but right now I have very mixed feelingsI tried to put on my pimples(like you are supposed to)  and guys…it made everything worse, my face HATED it, but putting one/two drops in my moisturizer before applying, my face liked it more. So will see how my face like it, after a month will do a deep review of this oil.

ABOUT THE PRODUCT

  • Tonal and inspiration from the catwalk, gorgeous high saturated color eye makeup change color
  • Exquisite opaque,paste, smooth easy away,easily highlight stereo eye level,at the beginning of lasting shine like makeup

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.

  • Great quality

  • No scent

Cons

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.

L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Purity Face Mask – review

If you are new here Hello My name is Anna and I have Oily and Acne-prone skin, so all my opinions are based on my skin and it’s needs.

About the product :

loreal for blogFor the first time, the L’Oréal Paris laboratories have selected three pure clays and combined them with eucalyptus extract, known for its purifying properties. The creamy texture works deep into the pores, leaving skin purified and matte-looking, without drying it out.

Benefits

A powerful blend of 3 pure clays

Montmorillonite – Rich in minerals, a clay recognized for helping to eliminate imperfections.
Ghassoul – A pure clay highly concentrated in minerals renowned to help clarify the complexion.

Ingredients: Aqua / Water, Kaolin, Montmorillonite, Silica, Lecithin,
 Polysorbate 20, Butylene Glycol, Propylene Glycol,
 Oryza Sativa Starch / Rice Starch, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Extract, 
Glycerin, Moroccan Lava Clay, Caprylyl Glycol, Citric Acid, Xanthan Gum,

Chlorphenesin, CI 61570 / Green 5, CI 77492 / Iron Oxides, Linalool,
 Geraniol, Coumarin, Citronellol, Parfum / Fragrance

 

MY THOUGHTS

To be totally honest I didn’t buy it myself but got it from one of my friends who got it but didn’t like it after the first use(and in Latvia, you can’t exchange cosmetic products or get money back). So because she knows I have an oily skin type and like clay masks, she gave it to me. I have already tried some masks from this range(you can read about it here).

loreal for blog 1-horz

So about the actual mask. It’s very drying like overly drying and tightening, I actually love those kinds of masks because of my oily skin…but even for me at this time of the year when my skin is a little bit dryer this was too much. If you have dry patches or have a dry skin type this is definitely not for you. This mask did help with acne, my face got more cleaner and it was longer matt, but it’s more like once a week face mask not every other day one! But the main thing I didn’t like is, there isn’t a lot of product in it. Like the packaging is pretty heavy, the product in it…there isn’t much of it inside. And it does dry out pretty quickly after opening the jar, so keep that in mind if you get it.

OVERALL

I would recommend for anyone who has oily skin and acne-prone skin.

4 stars

20200309_132420_268Pros

Cons
