NEW somethin' somethin'

Well, another small haul here! But with Korean beauty it is not like spending a lot of money, right? That is the best part! 

So many things and so little money :) That's how we like it girls, don't we? I have never tried any Korean beauty product before. But as we all can see, everyone is raving about it and of course, I have to try it out..

Sorry for not so great photos..

Nighttime companions

Bedside table essentials. Products you love to use to pamper yourself with every night.

This post is not about my evening routine. Hope it doesn’t confuse you. But in case you would like to know my evening routine, check it here

Bedside table essentials. That's the point of this post. After doing your evening routine you jump into your bed, but there is still something you have to do before falling asleep.

Little Haul & First Impression

You know that feeling when you receive newsletter with special offer or perfect sale? You have to buy something, right? It is a law of nature, you can not resist. And that's happened to me a lot lately.. 

Revlon Colorburst Matte Balms are not available in my country. But I wanted to try them out so badly! It is not fair. And that’s where it started. I needed to buy them so much, so I checked all shades online very carefully. Then ordered them on UK Ebay (here) and in three weeks they were here! My babies! 

They are amazing, those colours, matte finish, opaque result, oh yeah! That’s what you want, believe me. I have shades Unapologetic, Showy and Elusive. I am glad that colours are not a disappointment for me. Hate when it happens. They last on me for about 4-5 hours. I have very dry skin, often chapped, so I have to use a lip balm before I apply these matte balms. After first layer I set it with powder and then apply another layer. I do it so they last longer. They cost £6.80 per each, plus shipping about £4.45.

What's your summer scent?

Light, floral, citrus, fresh, heavy scent? Which one do you prefer during summer?

A fragrance during summer is very important. With that hot weather I tend to use lighter and fresh smelling perfumes. In general, I do not like heavy fragrance on me, I get headache very easily. But there are few favourites I can stand on myself. In summer there is a lot of days I don’t wear perfume at all. I just use my deodorant with nice light smell and that’s it. Currently using Vichy 48h Anti-Perspirant Treatment Roll on (here). But at night out you must smell great and delicious, right? :)

I have got just three perfumes I use regularly. I have two more in my collection, but they are not my faves anymore - too heavy for me.

My picks for summer: Nail polishes + swatches

It is that time of the year when you stop using dark heavy colours and pull some fresh colourful ones out of your box. I have got acrylics nails with french manicure, but I paint them myself. I can't have the same nail polish for more than a week. Too boring. 
Here are my faves for this summer :)

Social Media Thing

There is a thing.. It is really a lot of work to manage every social media I use. It is really hard to engage the attention of people, to attract them by my posts and pictures and engross their attention. Make them believe I am the one they want to follow and THE hardest thing is to make them subscribe. 
Subscription is really a goal.

Here are my social media ways to follow me and I would really appreciate any support :)

First impression: New Concealers

I have a problem with using up my concealers. It seems like never-ending story for me. And it is the same with foundations. I just want to try so many new products, but I feel bad looking at six opened foundations that are not used up yet. 

Back to concealers.. Currently I am using MAC Select cover-up concealer. I use it together with my last drops of Bourjois Healthy Mix concealer (review here). I firstly use Bourjois one, than apply my foundation and for brightening my eye area I use MAC concealer. But I am almost done with both of them (yaaay!). So when my friend went to UK, I asked her to buy me MAC Pro Longwear concealer in NW20 (here). I’ve read that it is good for undereye area and doesn’t set in fine lines. I cheated. Of course, I have used it already! It really works good at covering my dark circles, brightening that area, but I can’t stand the smell. I will definitely use it, nothing is gonna stop me after spending those money on it.

New in: Diorskin Nude Tan Transat Edition

There is a story behind this one. I would have never bought such an expensive products, but.. I treated myself because two weeks ago I passed my finals and finished my degree at university. And I felt like I deserved it! 

This shimmer powder is part of Dior’s limited edition called Transat Edition (similar blush here). It comes with a small kabuki brush which I haven’t tried yet. I have worn this powder or highlighter twice and it lasted pretty long time. So far so good. Nice golden shimmer for your cheeks in summer. The packaging is super shiny and you can see every fingerprint on it. But it comes with a nice little sleeve so you can store your precious powder in it and it stays shiny all the time! I hope. I’ll keep you updated how it works for me, but I need to wear it more.

Current Favourite Lip Combo

I never play with lipsticks and lipglosses to find good-looking combos. And it rarely happens that I find one that is great enough to remember it. BUT, it happened, finally! Do not ask me how. But it is great :)

Yes and No of Product Ingredients

Today I picked a little serious topic to write about. I am in no way an expert of this topic, I’ve just read a few articles (which I am gonna list here) and tried to understand what ingredients I should avoid in my beauty products. I know this is not everything we should be aware of, so if you know more about it, please let us all know in comments below. I appreciate any new information about undesired ingredients because I want to try and avoid them in the future. 

Here is what I've found out yet:

They are used to prevent bacteria, mold and yeast growth in products. But they increase risk of breast cancer. You can find them mostly in makeup products in general, body washes, deodorants, shampoos and facial cleansers.
