Happy Easter beauty bunnies !! :) 

I can't believe it's this time of the month already?? Is it just me or this past 4 months has gone by extra fast ? Well the closer to summer the better :)  
My most anticipated every month Glossybox has just arrived this afternoon,and i am very pleased with its contents.The April  theme is '' Sweet Treats'' and its aim to spoil us with some gorgeous treats to help us transition into summer.

MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Liner #13 Mat Black

Posted by Lps burrito cat at 15:39 0 comments


''Aqua Liner is a high precision waterproof liquid eyeliner. Rich in pigments and polymers, its formula guarantees intense color and an outstanding waterproof result.'' 

In my opinion,liquid foam-tip liners are the absolute easiest way to get that inky-black look.I'm so happy to see that the market has begun to be saturated with this kind of liner- instead of working with a gel ones and getting a brush dirty,with  a felt tip liner like this one is practically like writing with a pen, and allows you to easily get the shape of liner you want.For beginners liquid liners might take a bit of practice, but trust me,this pen shape tip makes it all very simple.
 I was really impressed with how black it turned out to be, I only need to draw a line once to get a full intense color. It holds up all day, no cracking, smearing, easy to use (glides effortlessly).
 The sponge/foam tip applicator  is firm enough for precise lines and soft/flexible enough for wider lines.Overall I love everything about this liquid liner and I strongly recommend it :) 

Through tears and rain, this is one of my best friends and keeps my eyes looking wonderful.

Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover For Lids, Lashes & Lips

Posted by Lps burrito cat at 16:51 4 comments

 "Totally tugless, two-way makeup remover speeds the departure of hard-to-remove eye and lip makeups. Dissolves and "lifts away" long-wearing makeup, even waterproof mascara. Non-irritating, non-stinging. Ophthalmologist Tested. Appropriate for contact lens wearers."

In my experience, the product delivered exactly what was claimed above. Easily removes waterproof makeup, no rubbing, no tugging, just a smooth pat and swipe of the cotton pad and my eye makeup goes away completely and it's fragrance-free. There is no greasy feeling to it,as some two phase removers can do, and my eye area feels rejuvenated afterwards - not like I had been wearing makeup all day.
Quick, effective and effortless! Everything i need in a makeup remover.Amazing !!! I only wish I had found it sooner :)

''Winner of the SHE Magazine Beauty Awards 2011 for Best Eye Makeup Remover''

A MUST-HAVE! I strongly recommend it.

MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Pressed Powder

Posted by Lps burrito cat at 21:11 0 comments
 
 

''HD High Definition Pressed Powder is a talc-free, silky, lightweight finishing powder that offers the same benefits of HD Microfinish Loose Powder, but in a purse friendly pressed compact.  One universal shade is designed to work for every skin tone from light to deep, with sheer flawlessness and perfection. Although the setting powder appears white in the compact, it is completely translucent on the skin and ideal for creating a chalk-free, HD compatible finish.''

My other half has this opportunity to visit Sephora not so long ago,and despite his lack of makeup knowledge,he managed to pick this just recently released pressed version of well known Make Up For Ever HD powder for me as a gift,and i must say,I have the best husband EVER!!

This HD Pressed Powder is probably one of Make Up For Ever's best products!
It blends so beautifully and silky and it truly is "invisible" and the silica does a smashing job at imparting a smooth, soft-focus look. It does a great job at keeping oil at bay, and one of the best things about it is that you can apply it over ALL of your makeup (blush, eyeshadow, whatever) because it is transparent. A little goes a loooong way so it will probably last a very very long time :)This stuff  puts the best finish on my face and lasts entire day,literally!!!  MUFE HD Pressed Powder - a pure magic -  has become an essential in my make up bag !! 
I strongly recommend it to everybody.

ONCE YOU GO HD...... YOU NEVER WANT TO GO BACK!!

Beauty BLOSSOM

The March GLOSSYBOX is Spring-ish themed -  "Beauty BLOSSOM'',and I couldn't be more excited about that because it makes me feel like we can finally put winter behind us,shed the thights and black wardrobe and welcome spring!!! Yay :)
To help shake off winter, in this month box there is something to help us feel better and look better.

Here are the products that I've received.
Mitchell and Peach Body Cream 40 ml '' With English honey,organic cocoa,vitamin B5 ans shea butter,this body cream is perfect to leave you feeling as though you've taken a walk in the English countryside'' The body cream is deliciously rich, yet sinks into skin effortlessly. Plus, that lavender rich scent makes it smell heavenly :)
SLEEK Make Up Pout Polish Full size  '' This tinted balm is full of nourishment,and with SPF15,almond oil,shea butter & vitamin E,it will leave your pout looking perfect '' I got mine in colour - Bare Minimum and i have to say this stuff is amazing!!!!My favourite product from this box :)
Bellapierre Cosmetics Ltd Shimmer Powders full size ''This 100% pure Mica shimmering eye shadow will provide you with a long lastong vibrant colour without smearing,creasing or fading''
Mine is in colour Bubble Gum and its just WOW!!!! Can be used not only as the eyeshadow but as highlighter aswell  :) Love it!!! 
Juicy Couture Malibu Collection  (2 samples ) '' This fragrence blends the spirit of carefree Cali with Glam LA and we love it '' .They both a bit different but still fresh and fruity , a great change to break up the winter lull. If you like Juicy Couture fragrances, you'll like them :)
Dove Hair Therapy Intensive Rapair 60 seconds Treatment Shot one size ''Now you dont have to choose between beauty and hair care with this intensove treatment! It's the perfect pick  me -up for hair care in a hurry and you can even take it on holiday to revive damaged hair from the sun''
I have always been a huge fan of Dove hair products,and couldn't be more happier when i saw this one in my box ,as i recently gone one shade lighter, my hair need some series TLC now.
In general I am pleased with this month Glossybox but I am not over the moon.
I'm longing for spring as much as the next Glossybox and I'm looking forward to some fresh, fun Easter products!

What did you think of your March GLOSSYBOX?

Signorina Eleganza Salvatore Ferragamo EDP

Posted by Lps burrito cat at 19:22 1 comments

''Signorina Eleganza, a luxurious fragrance that celebrates feminine grace and seduction''

The new Spring-Summer 2014 collection Signorina Eleganza is a luxurious fragrance that celebrates feminine grace and seduction. The fresh head notes of grapefruit and pear are a vivacious and stimulating introduction. Almond powder and golden osmanthus petals create a delicate yet intense heart, adding a touch of indulgent luxury. The base notes of patchouli and white leather create a dry-down effect that leaves a luscious, lingering scent on the skin.
I instantly got drawn by its amazingly cute bottle,and its unique - gorgeous smell that seems to last all day and has a haunting scent, which is different from any that I've ever experienced before.
The name ‘Signorina Eleganza’ comes from Italian language which means Miss Elegance and this is exactly how i feel like when i wear them :)
 I definitely like this perfume, in all aspects: the packaging, the scent, the lasting power, and the feeling of it on myself.  This could easily become a signature scent for me.

This is Italian classic at its best.
