MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Liner #13 Mat Black

Posted by A small 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 A small 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 A small 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 :)

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 :)

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.

Signorina Eleganza Salvatore Ferragamo EDP

Posted by A small 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.

Manuka Doctor ApiClear Blemish Cream

Posted by A small Cat at 17:38 4 comments

 '' The non-greasy ApiClear Blemish Cream provides a targeted application for problem skin harnessing the power of active natural ingredients Manuka Honey and Propolis.''

I never had spots as a teenager, however from the past couple of months, I seem to have become prone to unsightly breakouts especially on my chin. So far I've tried acne creams with 10% benzoyl peroxide that completely burned my skin,and left it dry. I needed something that will actually work,and after many researches I came across Manuka Doctor products that are divided into three primary lines: ApiNourish, ApiClear, and ApiRevive. Each product is created to serve a specific skin problem. ApiClear range contains activated key ingredients Purified Bee Venom, Manuka Honey and Propolis that is clinically proven to help reduce blemishes. And there I found Blemish Cream that I was eager to try and it actually happen to be my skin Saviour of the month!
-''The carefully selected blend of ingredients aids renewal of damaged skin cells, nurtures cell regeneration, helps to eliminate blemishes and can help to fade and reduce acne and scarring.'' - their claims are so accurate, which is truly fantastic!
Spots gone within a couple of days and the scaring on my chin  have almost disappeared. I will most definitely carry on using it :)
If you're looking for something that does help to clear your blemishes and doesn't dry out your skin then this could well be the cream for you.

  
Has anyone used this? Did it work for you?

GARNIER Micellar Cleansing Water

Posted by A small Cat at 21:50 2 comments
 

''A super efficient and gentle way to cleanse, remove makeup, soothe the feel of skin and hydrate in just one step – it’s not magic, it’s Garnier Micellar!'' 

 
Garnier launched their first micellar water in November last year, but being a busy bee recently I've only just bought it !
I'm not one to stay loyal to a certain type of cleansing water, I like to try out new things especially when it comes to skin care  ( the ever so known Bioderma is next on my list ;) so when I finally got my hand on New Garnier all-in-one cleanser I couldn't be happier .
I use micellar water on a daily basics as a last step of cleansing my face routine and I can say that Garnier Micellar is a total gem!
It's super gentle, but cleanses very thoroughly. Depending on how much you've got on, you might need to cleanse twice, but the formula is so gentle that it will not dry out or irritate skin. It's also working well with my other skincare products to keep my face healthy and happy
I think this is pretty fantastic!
I loved Vichy Purete Thermale, but balked at the price considering how quickly I got through a bottle. This is pretty comparable, it removes makeup just as beautifully. I am very impressed with this product, and as it's currently on offer in many stores as a new launch :)
 
 A new drugstore fave/rave for me!
 
If you looking for a new cleansing water that is not  hugely expensive but works really well I 100% recommend this one :)

Garnier Moisture Match Ultra Hydrating Rich Cream

Posted by A small Cat at 21:42 3 comments
                                             Goodby dry...

'' Thanks to a perfect blend of nourishing and ultra-light oils, Goodbye Dry comforts your skin while delivering intense moisture replenishment in a flash. Non-greasy and quick to absorb, enriched with Camelia oil, Omega 3 & 6 and Shea butter, known for their intensive nourishing properties. Skin feels soothed and nourished all day.''

I’m always on the look out for different moisturizers and every time I spot a new ''budget friendly'' one, I can’t resist myself from picking it up. The weather changed and gone a bit colder now here in UK  and as we all know skin changes from season to season too and so should our skin care routine.
What does my skin need most in winter ?  Moisturize, moisturize, and  moisturize some more!!
 And here comes Garnier to the rescue creating 5 different moisturisers for 5 different skin types,brilliant!!
Although their range has been for sale for a quite while now i have never tried it before ( don't know why ?? ) ,until a PROMOTION caught my eye  ;)   ( currently on sale at Superdrug for  £2.98
I pick up the Garnier Moisture Match Goodby dry Ultra hydrating Rich Cream as i felt my face needed some serious hydration,and i couldn't pick better :)
Even though I don’t suffer from very dry skin,this cream left my face feeling fresh and hydrated,exactly what i needed. It absorbed beautifully,leaving my skin bouncy and soft.
This luxurious pink coloured cream soothes and comforts skin. It does have a slightly thicker than usual texture but it’s not heavy on the skin. It also delivers a much needed hydration boost which dry and tired looking skin requires.

 Moisturizing your skin is the fastest remedy to hydrate your skin and promptly mending the dehydrated look and feel of dry skin,but most important , You need to hydrate not only skin from outside, but from inside too !!!
In order to have sustained hydrated healthy skin Drink lots of water!!! :)
Do you normally change your skin-care routine with the change of seasons?

 Have you tried any of the Garnier Moisture Match Range ?

REVIEW : Rimmel ''Wake me up'' concealer in Ivory

Posted by A small Cat at 14:37 6 comments


"Our first full coverage concealer that visibly reawakens and illuminates under the eyes. Completely conceals spots and other blemishes. Instant anti-fatigue effect with peptides and a Vitamin Moisturizing Complex." - Rimmel London

 This is the product that I always look at, at the drugstore, but for some reason I never end up picking it up. However, I run out of my Collection 2000 concealer ( and i could NOT live without one ) and found this Rimmel Wake Me Up to be on sale, so I figured now is the time to try it out :)
The concealer is true to it's shade in the bottle upon application and is very easy to apply.
The texture of this concealer is very silky, almost boarding on the line of slippery. In terms of coverage, it is not full coverage, more like a sheer to light , which is why I use it for BRIGHTENING, not actual concealing ( as i do tend to have quite dark circles ) however it is definitely buildable without being cakey.
I did notice that throughout the day this concealer tends to crease and settle into fine lines even when set with powder.

I wouldn’t recommend this concealer for under the eyes if you have really dark circles, but I would definitely recommend it for redness and pigmentation, however, I would not use this on spots and blemishes, as the product contains brightening and satiny illuminating finish that contains speckles of shimmer and it would make your spots stand out even more.

Have you ever tried the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer? Did you like it?

DIOR Garden Clutch 001 Milly Garden

Posted by A small Cat at 21:12 2 comments

“After women, flowers are the most heavenly creation.” — Christian Dior

''A pale pink case with a delicate weave decoration, and two silver-plated rosebud clasps: The Dior Garden Clutch is a precious accessory inspired by jewellery-making expertise.
The case opens to reveal the must-haves for fresh, radiant eyes and lips: three eyeshadow shades to light up and emphasise the eyes and two lip glosses, one to enhance the lips, the other to colour them''

Although this is a Spring 2012 Limited Edition Make up palette,i was fortunate enough to be given this gem as a gift :)YaY!! It is an absolute beauty not to mention this adorable mini clutch ,that i just fell in love with !
 This Dior Spring 2012 make up collection was purely inspired by the beautiful gardens in Granville, Normandy, in northwestern France. This small harbor town is home to the legendary couturier, Christian Dior, where he built a house on a edge of a cliff surrounded by a luscious garden full of roses.
001 Milly Garden features cool-toned  dark, shimmery indigo-denim shadow, a frosty ice-blue shadow, and a shimmery soft white with pink reflects. The glosses  are milky white-pink and pale warm pink.
It has great pigmentation and wearability.Dior makes the best eyeshadow as far as long lasting ones. These colors work both day and evening. Love the formula, love the colors, and I love the blend-ability!!
You can't go wrong with DIOR.

If you're a Dior fan this is definitely one to add to the list ( i found it to be still available to buy online )
What do you think of this luxurious clutch makeup palette??

URBAN DECAY NAKED 3 review & swatches

Posted by A small Cat at 13:51 0 comments

   The most anticipated eyeshadow palette of 2013


Hi Beauties !!! :) 


All the best in the new year!!!!!!!
I hope that will bring us a lot of joy and happiness!
I decided to start this new year with review of the most wanted 2013 eyeshadow palette  - NAKED 3 by Urban Decay  :) 
 I finally got my hands on it, and I have to say this is absolutely my favourite of the naked collections so far!!  
The colours compliment each other so well :)There are a few shades I will be using more than once :)
Nr. 3 is definitely more romantic than its predecessor.
Palette hides in its interior a whole new set of toned shades in pink tones - proof that women love the '' subtle elegance''.
The palette includes :
  3 mattes 
Strange - pale neutral pink matte(tiny bit of satin) 
Limit - light dusty rose 
Nooner - medium pinky-brown
 4 glittery/sparkly shades 
Dust - pale metallic pink shimmer w/iridescent micro-glitter 
Buzz - metallic rose shimmer w/silver micro-glitter  
Trick - light metallic pinky-copper shimmer w/tonal micro-sparkle  
Blackheart - smoky black matte w/rosy red micro-sparkle
 5 satin/shimmers 
Burnout - light pinky-peach satin 
Liar - medium metallic mauve shimmer
Factory - pinky-brown satin
Mugshot - metallic taupe shimmer w/slight pink shift
Darkside - deep taupe-mauve satin 

The shadows are  buttery, pigmented, and just beautiful!! I can see this palette working on most skin tones. It's not for someone that's looking to pull off dramatic eye looks, but rather for someone that wants softer neutrals. I've been waiting for UD to release something for a more subtle yet classy eye look and this fits the bill perfectly.
Alongside those gorgeous shadows we'll get a brand new, two-sided crease and shodow brush,plus 4 weeks of Urban Decay's Primer potion samples in a few different shades.

If you own any of the palettes I still think this is a great one to have.
 As usual Urban Decay did not disappoint me at all. I would definitely recommend this without any shadow of a doubt;)

Simply gorgeous...

What are your thoughts on this palette? Are you an UD Junkie like me and adding this palette to your collection?
