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

Douglas hair protein repair intensive mask

This one was a gift from another dear friend. I have tried this hair mask in the past, and I can say it’s perfect for very damaged hair. It’s very Nourishing, so if you have oily hair it’s not for you.

Tea-Time-Lemon-Hand-Cream_530x

Tea Time Lemon Hand Cream

Another gift from a friend(see? I have amazing friends). I’m so happy that Korean makeup and skincare is showing up in our drugstores, so trying something new is exciting! I really like this hand cream, it doesn’t leave an oily feeling after applying, the only thing I don’t like its smell… I have lots of cleaning supplies with a lemon scent, and guys…it’s the same as this cream. The exact same scent, and that’s a shame. Overall it’s good,just the scent is awful(for me).

I got it in the 04 twister sister shade.  The packaging is pretty simple, the plastic looks great. Nothing broke, that’s a good sign.I’m happy so far.

 Quality is great, the actual product has a light fruit scent. The color is vibrant, and you can build it up easily. It’s not kissing prof sadly, but it is long lasting.

 

Overall

I like it.

The Seduction of Lord Stone (Dashing Widows)

It’s now Free on the Kindle, so definitely check it out.

Caroline, Lady Beaumont, arrives in London seeking excitement after ten dreary years of marriage and an even drearier year of mourning. That means conquering society, dancing like there’s no tomorrow, and taking a lover to provide passion without promises. Promises, in this dashing widow’s dictionary, equal prison. So what is an adventurous lady to do when she loses her heart to a notorious rake who, for the first time in his life, wants forever?

Devilish Silas Nash, Viscount Stone is in love at last with a beautiful, headstrong widow bent on playing the field. Worse, she’s enlisted his help to set her up with his disreputable best friend. No red-blooded man takes such a challenge lying down, and Silas schemes to seduce his darling into his arms, warm, willing and besotted. But will his passionate plots come undone against a woman determined to act the mistress, but never the wife?

First Impression: essence #insta perfect liquid makeup

Recently my Instagram is just full of new essence products(all the bloggers I follow are just obsessed with it) and one of those products was the #insta perfect liquid foundation. I got really curious, because I am loving the essence concealers right now and why not to try a new foundation? So I got and bought it . Here are my honest thoughts !

About the product : 

0476546-1The make-up in a practical drop-packaging ensures a matte and flawless complexion. The liquid texture is waterproof and the coverage is buildable drop-by-drop. Nine different shades can be mixed and matched to create the perfect colour for all skin types and are sure to make all

  • Waterproof make-up
  • Nine different shades to combine
  • Buildable for stronger coverage

 

My thoughts :

The Formula and Shade: 4,5/5

 

The shade is perfect for me( I have the shade 10 #cool porcelain ). I’m so happy to have found a foundation that matches my skin perfectly! The coverage is light to medium, but it’s very buildable so you could go to high coverage. I did try 2 different powders (on two different days logically) and I found that it does best with essence powder.

The packaging: 4/5 stars

Processed with VSCO with  preset

The first thing you see how tiny the bottle is, but it’s 30 ml/1.01 fl.oz(the packaging says) the same as an average foundation bottle. I like how easy to take it with you anywhere you go, but I don’t think it will last for long.

Overall: 4/5 stars

1280px-4_stars.svg

Pros :

  • Lightweight
  • Perfect Colour match (for me)
  • Good Price
  • Compact packaging
  • Buildable coverage

Cons:

  • Works best with other essence products
  • Not wide color range

 I like it! It’s a pretty good foundation for the price. I hope essence will expend the color range soon .

Tell me in the comments, Have you tried this foundation ?

“I got new STUFF” haul

hotHello, my darlings! How are you? Finally, here in Latvia, we got a real winter (with snow, ice and -20 C*).That means shopping for warm clothes and skin care stuff(because my skin is acting up in this weather).And today I want to talk about the skincare/makeup I got recently. Almost all of them I have tried those few days,so Let’s start!

 

Makeup

Processed with VSCO with  preset

Maybelline Dream Matte bb with salicylic acid

in the colour 03 light

It was my first time seeing it in a new design. I like it more than the original one FOR SURE. The colour match is okay for me, not perfect, but at the same time, not the worst( I think it’s the same exact colour as the light/medium was).Overall I’m happy with this product.

 

Processed with VSCO with  preset

essence Camouflage full coverage concealer

When I was browsing our local drugstore essence stand I found this pretty cool concealer that I have never seen before. The price was great (a little under 3 euro) so I got it in the colour 10 nude (sadly the 05 was sold out).It has a pinkish undertone, covers undereye circles and small imperfections pretty well. Stays on all day. The colour match is much better than most “light” drugstore concealers(on my skin). I really like it.

 

SkinCare

Beauty Formulas charcoal clay mask

I haven’t tried anything from this brand, so this is my first product from them.This mask smells really good. I like the consistency and I feel like it does help with the oiliness and imperfections of my skin. It was cheap(under 2 euros with my discount card).Really happy and glad that I got it!

 

Processed with VSCO with  preset

Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Mask

This is my 3rd time repurchase it , so you can tell that I like it a lot. It’s a great mask for oily skin, would definitely recommend.

 

Body/Haircare

Processed with VSCO with  preset

Green Pharmacy Shower Gel with strawberries and mint

You know the smell of wild strawberries that you can find just in the forest?Well, this smells exactly like that and I love it!

Processed with VSCO with  preset

 Syoss Full Hair 5 Extra Strong Hold Fullness & Volume Hair Mousse 250ml

With my new haircut, a hair mousse is a must! Right now I have love/hate relationship with this one, but I just started using it so maybe in the future I will change my mind.

RL de Young power hardener

Interesting fact- I have very thin nails, so having a clear nail polish with ”hardener” properties is always a good idea.Usually, I get the essence XXL nail thickener, but this time I decided to try something new.Will see how it goes.

Essence-The-Gel-Nail-Polish

The Gel nail polish

I love this range of nail polish by Essence.All the colors are so vibrant and long-lasting(I always get the nude ones).Definitely give it a go, if you haven’t already!

Gliss Kur mask Ultimate Repair intense exposure 

If you don’t know I regularly dye my hair.I love to use this particular hair mask after the dyeing process, it makes my hair feel alive again.How you can guess, this is repurchases for me. Highly recommend if you need a fast deep conditioning.

I have already one eyeshadow from this line and I always wanted to try some lighter shades, so seeing this particular shade in the clearance basked was like Winning the lottery moment(Okay…maybe be not so dramatic, but you get the point!).Still, haven’t tried it.But from the packaging, Think I will like it.

Creme de coconut and keratin Conditioner

One of my friends got me this in England, and after the first try, this is my go-to conditioner. It smells so good and my hair feels so healthy and smooth after using this, and I can say that’s a big deal because my hair is dyed more times then I can count.

This one is a repurchase for me. I really like the formula and how my face feels after using this and it’s cheap, that’s a major plus if you are a student like me!

Essence The Lash Curler Mascara review

The manufacturer promises:crazy curl! the lash curler is a new mascara innovation and has a manually rotating brush. unique on the market, the brush can be twisted manually as needed – sometimes more and sometimes less – while you apply your mascara to create extraordinary curl and volume. since the curl mascara is twisted by hand, it doesn’t require batteries. an absolute eye-catcher that’s fun, too! opthalmologically tested.

My Thoughts:

Shade:4/5 stars

4-stars

The Wand:5/5 stars

I love it!The tip is so good or my lashes in inner corners!

The Formula: 4/5

Okay, so it will not give you the crazy fake lash effect, but more natural look.I like it , it’s not clumpy, goes on pretty smoothly.But with all that ”curler thing” it can get messy if you are in hurry.

Overall:4/5 stars

I like it!It’s fun to use.And I like the packaging.Will I repurchase it?Maybe.
