St Ives Elements Moisturising Olive Scrub review & photos

St Ives Elements Moisturising Olive Scrub

It smoothes the skin and adds natural energy :)

 St Ives Olive scrub, contains natural particles that exfoliate dead skin cells while moisturizing and regenerating the skin. Olive oil helps to nourish the skin, leaving it soft and smooth.

  I LOVE skin range products from St Ives, and as I can remember I use
apricot scrub,which was one of my favourites scrubs, but  recently i wanted to try something new.When I saw this New St Ives Moisturising Olive Scrub ,I could not resist not to try it!
Unlike the apricot scrub, this one was much better. Less harsh (not harsh) and a good scrub overall.
In contrast to other products, St Ives Olive Scrub has a different consistency - sticky, thick and creamy, and it stays like this when applied.
The beads were great at exfoliating, lovely olive scent and very soothing. Left my skin feeling refreshed and revitalised.
It does not have too many particles but enough to gently peel off dead skin. It is very delicate.

It is ideal for those days when we feel that our skin does not necessarily need a strong scrub, but still  feels like it needs  gently peel off and cool down.

St Ives Elements Olive leaves skin feeling fresh and olive oil penetrates deeply, leaving it moisturized  and simply great :)
The product is very efficient :)
Available in every drugstore :)

I would definitely recommend it  :)

Posted by A small Cat at 17:43 8 comments


Innovative, great formula - a new MAC Mineralize Moisture SPF 15 Foundation

MAC Mineralize Moisture SPF 15 Foundation NC20

At the end of February, MAC has removed its old foundation Mineralize Foundation Satinfinish to make way for a new and exciting Mineralize Moisture SPF 15 Foundation.

He made a lot of noise around himself ,especially when Vogue Beauty mention that this product was seen behind the scenes in every city at pretty much every fashion show!
In the spring / summer 2013 '' it's all about'' MAC Mineralize Moisture :) :)

This foundation is available in 18 shades, divided into standard'' code'' NC for warmer tones and NW for cold tones.

No need to separately purchase the pump, as it is already attached to the bottle.
Fluid itself is incredibly moisturizing, this is what I LOVE about it :) 
Formula of this foundation is very light, easily blends into the skin, leaving a soft creamy finish while not clogging pores :) Perfect for dry skin, beautifully spreads and blend with the skin due to the key ingredients - Shea butter, emollients and extracts nutrients. Coverage is light to medium, you can also build new layers, with very natural look :)
MAC Mineralize Moisture contains SPF 15 protection filter what I think is a great addition
Overall I am impressed! :)
Foundation stays on face all day, did not cause any spots r blemishesI would rather say that it has even improved the condition of my skin  :)

Suitable for gentle and very natural finish, I recommend applications with a  stippling brush,to achive flawless , super-radiant and healthy  look:)!

If you are looking for a moisturizing, long-lasting and ideal for every day foundation - YOU HAVE TO TRY THIS ONE :)


Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette review and photos

Posted by A small Cat at 14:04 4 comments

Hi :)

I am a happy owner of a new shadow palette Urban Decay Naked Basics and i would love to share with you my feelings :)!
This is not a "mini" version of the previous two palettes as you might think at all! Although it is much, much smaller, it is truly unique and matte :)  :)


If you have two previous UD Naked and Naked 2 palette then you know that they are filled with shimmering shades - brilliant for creating dramatic, glowing eye .
UD Naked Basics comes with  five completely matte shadows and a one very pale gloss-perfect for all-natural, lightly accentuated under brow area.

Three shades (Foxy, Walk of Shame (WOS) and Naked) are very neutral, which really help lighten the eyelid and reverse the discoloration. "Faint" (second darkest) is great for use on the outer corner of the eye or to create depth in the crease or cover the entire eyelid for a nice everyday look.
The darkest shade is "Crave" is almost black. It can be combined with "Faint", or just use it to create a smokey eye, or just to create lines around the eyes instead of eyeliner,to give softer look - the color is very highly pigmented so you just tap it lightly with a brush to get a strong color.
Actually, I found all the Urban Decay shadows very strongly pigmented, long lasting and extremely easy to use - are so great for me when it comes to eye makeup!

This palette really contain "basics'' shadows as the name implies.
I think ,and  I'll be honest, you will not find anywhere such a basic collection of shadows in one palette, than the Urban Decay Naked Basics. It is perfect for creating everyday neutral look and it's absolutely great in addition to any other palette that you already have :
Size is tiny and perfect for travel :) Inside is a large mirror and the packaging is very elegant .
All shadows are creamy, smooth to touch, highly pigmented and easy to apply.

Frankly it one of the best palettes i have ever owned :):)! :)

Here is an example look of the daily makeup, that i  created using UD NAKED Basics palette :)


Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer

Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer

There are many concealer formulas to choose from at the drugstore. Sometimes it's overwhelming knowing which one is going to work for your skin. I usually go for liquid-type products, they tend to make the lightest shades. I decided to give Maybelline's new Dream Lumi Touch a try since it claims to highlight, conceal, and brighten all in one.  Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch has a gel based formula,that is moisturizing, pigmented and  blends out easily. This comes in a twist pen, so you can just twist the bottom and proceed to brush the product on. To me, the twist-pen makes this so easy to apply, the brush is neither too hard nor too soft. You can easily travel with this and apply it on the go.
Brightens and conceals at the same time providing a natural look. This concealer is meant to be used on areas where you want to get rid of some darkness like the under-eye area, sides of the nose, etc., and to even out minor imperfections
I use it where I need to highlight my face, like I use it under the eye in a V shape. On the bridge of the nose & continuous flared
out some strokes on the forehead, on the side of the mouth.
Available in about six shades, my perfect colour is Ivory :)

Dream Lumi Touch perfectly moisturizes the skin and does not dry up and the biggest
advantage is that it doesn't settles into fine lines and is pretty durable :)

Overall, this concealer is good ,but it may not actually do the job for individuals with really dark under eye issues. I would definitely repurchase :)
I love the effect that it gives. It looks very healthy & the highlighted area look naturally bright!

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Soft & Gentle review and photos

Posted by A small Cat at 13:39 0 comments

'' The luxurious, soft as velvet, metallic skin brightening glow'' ...

About this product has already been written a thousand times or more ... I know,i know ... But I have to share with you my feelings.

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft & Gentle  is without a doubt'' must have'' product for any make-up bag!
After just one use you'll know why I think so :) :)
I can not imagine my daily make up and collection of cosmetics without it!! :)

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish - Soft and Gentle is a highlighting compact powder.
MAC describes it as a 'gold-plated bronze peach', I agree with that ,but myself i'll describe it as a warm shade of champagne :)
Soft & Gentle has a beautiful pearl - metallic particles, ideal to create a healthy glow and look at skin. I am in love with the way it looks on my face :) :)

The texture is very smooth and creamy.
The tiny glitter melt into the skin, provide amazing illumination! The color is so natural that it probably can't even affect the color of the makeup, I love it for that!
Lifetime usage - literally!!!! Very little needed to create desired look :)
It does not transfer,stays where it was applied, and held all day long!
In my opinion, Soft & Gentle is ideal for photo shoots because the pictures look almost perfectly, highlighting the beautiful peaks of the cheek bones.

Is it worth the investment? A BIG YES!
This is certainly the most beautiful highlighter I've ever used !
A light touch is enough to achieve the perfect glow! :)
I am truly and completely addicted <3
Cosmetic worth of sin and money :)

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural review & photos

 MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium Plus

MAC Mineralize Natural SkinFinish as the name suggests is a mineral face powder, slowly roasted to ensure the best possible finish.

I am generally a fan of both powder finish foundations and dewy ones, this one looks very natural on the face and reflective almost invisible shimmer helps get close to the skin look :)
Provides excellent medium coverage.

I love this powder because it takes away the shine without being too matte, which is  GREAT!! :)

It has very smooth, light texture, it's not greasy and does not become oily after a few hours of'' wear''.
I love the feeling of this powder on my skin as it is velvety soft, nourishing and never cakey!!

Adapts to the skin and blends perfectly! Every time I use it almost feels like I do not have any makeup at all !

Did not cause any blemishes, spots or allergic reactions.

Mac Mineralize Skinfinish Natural gives a smooth, satin finish and beautiful skin healthy natural glow. 
I absolutely love it!! Powder definitely worth the money :) RECOMMEND :-) :-)
