My favorites for Winter time

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

The most wonderful time of the year… and of course it’s December, when everybody starts caring more about other people, shares love and kindness. Even though it’s only because of Christmas spirit, I still love it.

Want to share with you my favorites for this time of the year. Luminous face, dark red lips, bright eyes and soft hands- it’s all what I love for winter.

Let’s start with the face.

For my foundation, I’m using Maybelline Fit Me Luminous + Smooth foundation in colour 220. Very pigmented for medium to full coverage. I love how natural it looks on my face and it’s not a matte finish.  Definitely face has more luminosity and is perfect for day and night. To brighten up I’m using True Match Concealer from Loreal in colour 4.N Beige. Very easy to apply, brightens up my under eyes area and also covers all the imperfections. More about it you can read Here as I wrote a full review about it. To finish up and settle the foundation and concealer, I add a little bit of Loreal True Match Minerals Skin-Improving Foundation in colour 4.D/4.W Golden Natural. You can use it alone if you want to have a super natural look for every day, or use it as a powder to set up your makeup as I do. It keeps the shine on your face and so you won’t get a matte finish (what I love !), but fix the foundation very well. Same as for concealer, you can read more about it Here and also check the matte finish powder.

For my eyes

My all time favorite Diorshow Maximizer 3D Triple Volume-Plumping Lash Primer, it’s my 4th or 5th already and I guess I will never exchange it to something else. It not only makes the lashes ready for applying mascara, but gives a lot of volume and curl. But due to the Pure White TM Complex after 8 weeks of using it, your natural lashes has more volume and curl itself. I feel like doesn’t matter what mascara I apply after this primer it simply looks fascinating! So following for mascara, currently my favorite is False Lashes Concentrate Curling Top Coat Mascara from KIKO. You can use it alone as a mascara, or you can use it as a top coat on any other mascara. (so many times was said mascara! :D) It has a curled brush, which makes application even more easier. So every time I use these 2 heroes, my lashes looks long, curled, with lots of volume but still natural.

And my two favorite shades for the lips this month is

Super Stay Matte Ink from Maybelline. You can read more about it Here

A classic red in a shade 20 Pioneer and a darker one, more like a bordo in a shade 50 Voyager. These two colours are simply perfect for winter time.

TIP: after applying it, don’t touch your lips until is fully dry, otherwise you will have empty spots on your lips with no colour left. So give a few minutes to dry it out fully.

I use them almost every single day to work or going out and now couldn’t imagine myself  not having them in my bag.

Last but not lest in my new favorite hand cream

My mum bought it for me the minute it was released as I am crazy about passion fruits and of course it’s in a pink colour and it’s from IKONA. I’m quite sure that you can get it only in Lithuania, but if you have a chance, definitely get it. The same as my lipsticks, this one is not leaving my bag! It makes my hands so smooth and moisturized that I can’t stop using it. It has olive and almond oil, goji berry extract and glycerin.  Actually would be a perfect Christmas present!

And that’s it, all my favorites for this time. Hope you enjoyed reading it and will find it helpful for your next trip for makeup shopping!

With Love,

News from Maybelline and L’oreal

Processed with VSCO with hb1 presetProcessed with VSCO with hb1 presetProcessed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Hello guys! And I’m finally back again here!

Sitting in my lounge, having a cup of tea with an apple pie, which I baked just a minute ago. Couldn’t be more cozier for a cold November evening. And that’s why I wanted to share my ideas and opinion about these new products which went viral all other the social media.

Let’s start with Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink. I got 8 beautiful new colours and was super excited to try it out. My favorites are 15 Lover, 20 Pioner,10 Dreamer and 50 Voyager.  It was a love from the first sigh. Very good consistency and comfortable applicator.And most importantly it doesn’t dry out your lips as over matte lipsticks!
The colour stays for HOURS! If you apply it in the morning before you leave home, you will still have the colour on your lips by the time you will go for your lunch break! Couldn’t it be more fascinating?! With the darker colour, yes, it’s a bit tricky to remove it, but use your mascara remover and you will be fine. Don’t use creamy make up removers for dark shades unless you want to spend some more time in front of the mirror! 😀
To conclude, very good product, definitely would recommend it and the colour range is amazing for autumn/winter!

Next one is Master Blush Color and Highlighting Palette. I would say very Autumn’ish palette, due to the colour range. The highlighters are absolutely fantastic! Very pigmented and not applies very easily, and the blushers I tap just a little bit on my cheeks,  to add some tone and make the hole make up more natural. If you are not a big fan of blushes, then I’m not sore if it’s smart to buy the whole palette, just because of the highlighters, but I would definitely recommend at least to try it in a store and see if you like. At least me, I would recommend it for sure!

Next beauties are from L’oreal. My favorites are True Match Minerals FoundationTwo are skin improving foundations and the 3rd is mattifying powder. If you like very very natural looking make-up then these 2 mineral foundations are up to your street. I’m not a big fan of matt skin, so I will give the mattifying powder to my mum, but it definitely does a great job!

I’m a big fan of concealers, so to try the newest L’oreal True Match The One was more than exciting. It is quite pigmented, but doesn’t make your skin look too “Cakey” whish is cool. I use in 2 tones, one lighter and one darker. With the darker shade I cover all the spots and with the lighter tone I highlight and brighten.

Last but not least is Paradise Extatic Mascara. First what I wanna say is WOW! It gives definitely a lot of volume and length (my own lashes are long and curly enough, so I don’t use lash curler). If you have very thin and straight lashes, I don’t know if you will like it, but for the thicker lash owners, would really suggest to try it! Some of the bloggers said that they didn’t liked it, but I would say don’t use too much product! For me it was much better than Dior Pump’n’Volume or Better Than Sex mascara, so obviously it’s completely different from person to person. But I personally liked it a lot.
Might sound strange, but I love all of these products. It’s a great quality, friendly prices and super comfortable packaging and design (especially mineral powders!)

Thank you for reading and talk to you soon!

Cyprus. Our first summer vacation together and lots of cats. Part I

Sunbathing at the moment, drinking Prosecco and writing this blog post at 30 Celsius. One week just passed liked crazy and I wish that we would stay longer here.

Like every year, we been thinking where to celebrate my birthday and decided to go to Cyprus where my boyfriends father has a villa. As we never been before here and also in 7 years of our relationship we never had holidays next to the sea where is the summer, we decided that it’s the perfect time to get some tan, eat delicious food and enjoy each other here at my anniversary birthday.

Every day was at least 28C degrees, which is perfect to swim in a Mediterranean sea, eat fresh Greek salads and sea food and simply lay, drink champagne and enjoy each other. After such a busy month in my life, I really needed  to turn off my emails, wats’up and other apps, just to relax.

I don’t remember when I had time to read a book and finish it in 4 days! Just lay down, hear the sea weaves breaking into the sand and read a good romantic book that I bought at the airport.  It’s so nice and warm here. All the people are smiling, enjoying every single minute of the holiday and sun. Incredible food EVERYWHERE and soooooo many cats!! OMG, that is the most incredible thing I have seen in my life. That everywhere you go (even now at the beach) you see the cats.  Can’t believe that in a few days I will have to stop wearing summer clothes, drinking champagne (oh yes, I have been doing it every day!) and will be back to daily routine and work… Super sad, but that’s why I will leave for myself to write the second blog post when I’m back already so can throwback myself back there. And now enjoy the pictures! ❤

And I’m finishing this blog post, by sitting in my kitchen already, drinking mint tea wrapped in a cozy sweater, then outside is raining like crazy and is already super dark.. But as I said before, let’s leave the second part of it for later, so I can remember everything again and imagine that I’m laying under the palm tree with fresh figs in my hands.. Miss all the cats from the so so so much, will upload the picture in my next post.

Thank you for reading!
Yours,
Enrika ❤

Statement piece with animal print <3

Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

 

It’s raining and cold today, so seems like a perfect time to write finally a new blog post about my new favorite jacket!

Bought it almost a month ago, actually was convinced by my mom to get it and till now, I’m so happy that I listened to her!

Animal print, golden details and a very classy straight cut, fits to almost every single outfit! If I’m wearing sneakers and a hoodie underneath with a small back pack or a more classy look, both ways I’m loving it!!

And you won’t believe me,that it’s actually from H&M! Surprisingly it’s an amazing quality and I love the shape of it. All in all, would totally recommend for all of you to get one statement piece for this autumn and winter. Doesn’t matter if it’s a coat or a bag or a shoes, but it’s totally worth it to invest for a good quality piece. Something more different and exclusive always catches my eyes! 🙂

Summer sadness in Glypoteket

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

OMG! Can you believe that I wasn’t writing for almost 2 months?! Times simply flies too fast. So many things happened in my life, so it was one of the reasons why I was away for so long. Change my work and position, had some short summer holidays and things to do, that didn’t had time to write at all.

Even that is almost autumn, wanted to share with you some pictures from  NY Carlsberg Glypoteket. If you want to run away from the city madness and enjoy some calm environment full of art and palm trees, you definitely have to visit this museum while you are in Copenhagen. The museum has not only Danish, but also French and Mediterranean art and sculptures. Not only the exhibitions but also the interior of the museum is incredible beautiful. A mix of Scandinavian minimalism and a Palm trees inside makes you feel like you are on holidays.

I chose this topic for today to remember summer, because in 2 weeks I’m finally going on holidays to Cyprus! Can’t wait for that and definitely will post everything here ( and not in 2 months, promise!), but before going to Cyprus, I still have two more blog post coming up to share my new favorite coat I bought recently. It’s simply has to be posted on my blog, because it’s insane! At least for me, haha! 🙂

But as always, if you miss my blog post, you can always follow my Instagram account @worldbyenrika ,  to see first what is happening in my life ❤

Talk to you soon!

Body care from Organic Shop

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

Hello my dears! And I am back this time with 2 incredible and organic products for your body from Elevita store. Once again, I discovered Organic Shop store when I was in Moscow, and obviously couldn’t buy everything due to the lack of space in my luggage, so was so happy when I found e-shop in Lithuania, who are selling almost all of the brands from Organic Shop. So go and check out their e-shop here and enjoy and reading!

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

Let’s start with Organic Papaya & Sugar Body Scrub. Can’t mention as a first thing, that it smells INCREDIBLE! It’s like sweet citrus candies which you want to eat non-stop! 🙂 Super creamy consistency and tiny sugar pieces leaves your skin soft as a velvet. Secondly, it’s 99,54% natural, no SLS, parabens or silicones.
In general, the body scrub is made with organic papaya extract and natural sugar. Not only it exfoliates your skin unbelievably soft and gently but also your body feels fresh and light. Normally, I get red marks on my body after exfoliating with the scrubs, and with this one it turned just slightly pink. I have a super sensitive and allergic skin, so for sure I will get one more body scrub from Organic Shop. It’s a big packaging- 250 ml and a great price! Only 2,69EUR.  And also this baby, looks so great, will have to try it as well Instant Renewal Body Scrub .

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

Obviously after bath and body scrubs, we have to use some body cream. This time I chose Organic Lotus & 5 Oils Body Cream.  Most likely first question will be what are these 5 oils, so it’s- organic jojoba oil, organic evening primrose oil, organic amaranth oil, organic sweet almond oil and Shea butter.  It smells also quite sweet, but not too much. Absorbs into skin very quickly, it’s not sticky and the skin becomes more luminous (i have compared my hands, one with the lotion another without) and could see the immediate result! It’s also 99% natural, with no parabens and silicones. Packaging the same as the body scrub is 250ml, which will be enough for at least 2 months, as the cream is thicker than normal, so you don’t need to apply a lot. The price is also amazing, only 2,45 EUR and you are getting organic and amazing quality product. I was surprised that you still can get cheap but incredible quality cosmetics in Europe, but here you go. I showed Elevita website to all my family and friends already and can’t wait to make my shopping bag full of products!

And that was it. Hope you liked it and will go to enjoy shopping with Elevita. This blog post was sponsored by them, but written in my truly honest opinion.
Thank you for reading!

First impressions from Essence. Is it only high-end make-up worth the hype?

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

And I can answer already NO. So many times in my life happened that expensive and luxurious product wasn’t as good as it was promoted. At least me, I like to mix my cosmetic bag with expensive and drug store products, because if you have an amazing product for 3 EUR, why you shouldn’t use it just because it’s not high-end, right?!

So today, want to talk about some products from Essence. I bought everything what you can see in a picture today, and have been using only 1 the same product before. Let’s start with face products and Kabuki brush.

Processed with VSCO with f2 presetProcessed with VSCO with f2 preset

Essence Camouflage 2in1 Powder& Make-up. High coverage, instant matt and long-lasting. Shade- 30 vanilla beige. Haven’t used it yet normally, just swapped a bit on my hand and on my cheek. What caught my attention when I took it in my hands, that it has a big mirror and looks very delicate. The powder itself is really lightweight and covers quite good. Will see how it will last on my face with a proper make-up during the day. So if you will be interested, let me know in a comments bellow if I should make a new blog post about the long-lasting.

Next one is Essence Satin Touch Blush. Shade 30 satin bronze. Also very delicate and simple packaging. The shade seems also to be perfect for contouring your nose and forehead. On a hand looks very natural and fresh as it has some kind of shimmer (but not too much!). Definitely will give some pretty glow for my cheeks.

Last but not least is a pastel blue Essence Kabuki Brush. I love the colour of it, so didn’t cared about the quality, but when I tried it looked as a decent make-up brush. The bristles are super soft and it should be perfect for bronzing up your face, decolte and neck. Can’t wait to give a normal try for it!

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

As I said, before I have tried only one product which I re-purchased again and it’s not first impressions any more. It’s Essence Prettifying Lip Oil with Jojoba Oil. It is very similar to Clarins lip oils and for me personally was the same result for my lips. It non sticky, gives a natural shine and moisturizes your lips. very nice product!

Currently I am obsessed with lip liners so really wanted to try these ones as well. I got in a Shades 07 cute pink (the darker one) and 12 wish me a rose. Love how they describe the shades! 🙂 So, the lip liners are very soft and easy to apply. Just need to sharpen up a little bit more. Seems like it will be long-lasting which is perfect for every day use when it’s not a dark colour.

And the last ones are two lipsticks in a super nice nude’ish but pink’ish colours. Will be so nice for the early autumn to go to work! First one is Essence Colour&Care Lipstick with Avocado ButterShade 03 Life’s my runway. (again the name!! <3) Suuuuuuper soft and velvety lipstick. Has a berry scent and you want to eat your lips! 🙂 As it has avocado butter as well, it should nourish a lot your lips as well and has a buttery shine.
Last lipstick is Essence Sheer&Shine. Shade 12 Candy love. Also very soft and a has kind of a ‘wet look’ finish, both of the lipsticks are non-sticky. More a pinky shade but it feels comfortable on a lips and will go perfectly with my floral dress!

And that was it. To conclude wanna say, that not only expensive and high-end make up is good. You can find great products also from drug store make-up. Especially if you are a student or you are on a budget, it’s great and cheap way to have the products you want and need, test some new ones and obviously save some money as well. Cause for all these products I wrote today, I spent less that 10EUR, because it was under 50% discount and I couldn’t be more happier even that I should really stop buying make-up. But it made me happy equally when I spent less than 10EUR or when I spend 100EUR.

Hope you enjoyed and talk to you soon!
Love,

Summer rain

Processed with VSCO with hb2 presetProcessed with VSCO with hb2 presetProcessed with VSCO with hb1 presetProcessed with VSCO with hb2 presetProcessed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Good morning everybody! This year it’s really difficult to get a proper summer weather, as most of the time is raining and for me it feels more like a spring or early autumn.
But I can’t complain too much, because I woke up quite early, made myself a cup of coffee and currently sitting in my terrace in front of the sun and writing this post. You can see more of my daily life on my instagram stories ( @worldbyenrika ).

But today I want to remember a very bright and colorful outfit, which wasn’t the most appropriate outfit for the rainy afternoon, but wanted to look pretty anyways! 🙂
I chose a shiny golden loafers from H&M,  the same as a cross bag. Denim jacket from D&G, skirt from COS and a white blouse from Twin Set.

My current mood and goal is to stop wearing sneackers so often and jeans, and start wearing more skirts, dresses, pretty blouses and some ind of heels. Need to get back to my normal shape and get back on track with buying more high heels and pretty things.

Have a lovely Friday and talk to you soon!
Love,

Dr. Konopka’s skin care 

Hello my dear readers! Hope you are enjoying this lovely afternoon! Today want to talk shortly about some skin care products from Dr. Konopka’s and it’s in a collaboration with a Lithuanian store Elevita. First time I tried this eye cream in Moscow and I felt in love with the product and design so was really happy to try out some other Dr. Konopka’s products. You can read more about it in  My morning routine post, so there is no need to talk about it more now.

Next product is Face Moisturizing Commage. It’s like a scrub, but a little bit softer. What I like a lot, that you need just a little bit of the product for your face and it removes all the dead skin super softly, without making any redness for your face. It consists of herbal essence 49, chamomile extract, water lily and it’s perfect not only for dry and sensitive skin, but also for a bit oily. If you apply the right face cream afterwords, you can feel the immediate result after 1 time use.

Following next I’m using at the moment Calming Face Cream. Very soft and creamy, so you don’t need a lot of product as well. I love the smell, which is delicate and not strong at all, keeping in mind that it’s all natural. The face cream consists of herbal essence 54 and organic yarrow extract. It’s perfect for oily and normal skin as well. I use it even as a night cream and every morning I can see that i don’t have any dark circles or puffiness on my face. I look fresh and ready to start a new day.

All of the products has a very friendly price, you can see it at Elevita web-shop. I’m already making a huge shopping list, because want to try their shampoos, tonic, hand creams and much more. And all of the products are Vegan as well as 98.9% are natural ingrediants!

Follow me on instagram @worldbyenrika to see more pictures from Elevita shop.

Thank you for reading!

Dress- H&M/ Loafers- H&M/ Bag- H&M/ Cardigan- Next

Hello to everybody! I’m so happy that lately have more time to write here and I think you realized that as well by having my new blog post almost every second day. Jeeej ❤ 

So at the moment I’m waiting for the boarding to start to Vilnius, Lithuania. It won’t be like a normal holidays, because I have to do queit a lot of medical check-ups, but crossing fingers that everything will be good. 

This time, want to share my favorite for the moment dress. It’s a satin pastel blue dress, super light and easy to wear. I paired it with a golden loafers and a bright yellowish golden cross-bag. 

As in Denmark is still quite chill outside, even that it’s a mid of JULY already (crazy!!) you want to cover up with something to keep that coziness. 

And I think that’s it. Hope you liked it and got some inspiration for your next outfitt. I’m already waiting (again) to take off!  Next post will be already from Lithuania. Follow me on instagram (worldbyenrika) to see what I’m doing there ❤ 

With Love,

Enrika
