Hello Loves!

First of all, I will try to make this blog post short, because I have a feeling that it might become way too long! 🙂 Today want to share with you my main make up which  I use during the summer. Some of the products are brand new for me but already beloved ones in my makeup bag ❤

If some of you doesn’t know, in my previous blog post I talked about my Morning Routine, and wrote that my skin never felt so good as it is at the moment, that’s why you won’t find any foundation in my make up bag any more, at least for now.

 To add some colour and brightness I use Loreal Glam Nude CC cream. It gives nice shade and covers any redness if I get during the day.  Very nice and light product, which you can also use as a primer for your foundation. But as it has some colour pigments I wear it alone.  On top of that, I add just a little bit of Insta Flawless skin tint from Rimmel. It’s brand new product in my make up bag, which I absolutely adore. Don’t know how well it primes (as you can also use it as a primer), but it gives a super natural and healthy glow for your skin and also perfects the skin colour. I have in a shade LIGHT MEDIUM 006. 

To brighten up a little bit my under eye are I use either Nude Magique BB Concealer from Loreal or Wake Me UP Anti-Fatigue Concealer from Rimmel. Loreal concealer it’s much lighter and it has a nice metallic bubble applicator, which calms your skim immediate and from Rimmel it has much more coverage and gives more luminous to your skin. Perfect concealer if you have dark circles, as it has some Vitamin C.

As for the bronzer, I’m currently using  Summer of Love from I ❤ Makeup, it reminds a lot to one of the heart bronzers from Too Faced, and can guarantee that the results are almost the same. So it’s a great dupe if you want to save up some money:) It has shimmer and some highlighter as well. Talking about highlighters, I still can’t stop using my all time favorite Wibo Strobing Make Up Shimmers Kit. I wrote about it on my March favorites, so you can read more about it here. And one more highlighter which I use time to time is from Loreal- Face Illuminating Powder in colour Wild Glow. Also a very light product. Gives a nice golden glow to your skin and you can build it up for a stronger effect.

Talking about my eyebrows, I use 3 products. Very cheap but such a good quality that I can’t stop re-purchasing it. I start with the Eyebrow Gel (colour 01 brown) from Essence. You can shape and create a nice form of your eyebrows and also add some light colour to it. After I shape my brows, I use Eyebrow Stylist Set  (colour 01 natural brunette style) from Essence as well. It nicely fills up any empty spots and adds a stronger colour to it. And finally to sett everything I use Tinted Brow Mascara from NYX. So I know, that my eyebrows will stay in place trough the whole day.

Old time favorite mascara primer, which I re-purchased already 3 times is Diorshow Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum. No words needed for that- The Best and nothing will change it. For mascara currently I’m using The Classic Volume Express from Maybelline. I bought it in Moscow, and really liked it, so still using and enjoying my long and curved lashes. Good mascara, definitely worth to try!

Last but not least, are my favorite products for the lips. Ultra- Nourishing Lip Balm from Nuxe makes yors lips mega soft, it also has a bit of a strong scent of honey and some citrus, which can be a bit annoying for some of you. But a very good quality lip product, I also apply it every night before I go to sleep, so I know that my lips will be nourished during the night, and I will still feel that softness in a morning.  Another lip product I love is Lip Perfector from  YSL, you can wear it alone and have some nice natural glow on your lips, or wear it under your make up. It moisturizes, hydrates and makes the lip contour more visible. You can also use it instead of the lip liner for the day. And as a lip gloss I use Smooth Kiss, Glossy Lip Butter from VIctoria’s Secret. Smells like citrus vanilla and gives you a very nice and long lasting shine for your lips.

And I guess, that was it. All my favorite products from my make up bag, I use almost every day, if not all together at once at least some of it partly. Have you tried any of it? What are your ideas? Share your favorites on your instagram and tag me as @worldbyenrika would love to see what you like.

Thank you for reading and talk to you soon!

Let’s talk about benefits from Benefit?

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

My dear, Readers,

Last time I wrote it was last year! Can you believe that? Lately my life is a big rush. Don’t have time to do anything what I really want and like, which is a shame. But from today on, I will try my best to write my reviews, ideas, lookbooks and everything what I feel it can inspire you, more often ❤

So grab a cup of tea/coffee and start reading. Enjoy!

All the beauty bloggers/vloggers have been crazy about Benefit cosmetics lately and especially their brow products. Believe me or not, from all this media around me, I went to the closest Sephora and got myself a few bits and bops.

Let’s start with the Goof Proof  Brow Pencil. I really enjoyed for the first 2 weeks. It made easy to fill up the brows, shape a little bit in the direction I wanted and broom them, to keep it in place. But after those 2 weeks, the pencil got dry. I needed to draw for a minute on my hand to get the same texture as it was in a beginning. And as it is super slim, it was breaking all the time (I wasn’t pressing it hard!).

So my verdict would be: amazing in a beginning and a really bad product afterwards. You can get a much better quality product for much cheaper. Wouldn’t buy again.

Next one is It’s potent! Dark circle eye cream. It should fade your dark circles and smooth the skin. Does it fades the dark circles? NO. Does it moisturizes the under eye area? YES. Would I buy it again? Most likely not. 

As good advertising this cream has, but it doesn’t fade even a little bit the dark circles. Yes, it moisturizes a lot the under eye skin, and it feels smooth, concealer slides perfectly afterwords, but it doesn’t do the main job at least for my skin.

Let me know your thoughts and ideas, would be lovely to discuss it together.

Talk to you soon!

Merry Christmas! Gingerbread cookies and a magical mood at home

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Merry Christmas my dear readers! ♥

My mood couldn’t be more festive, when I know that it’s only 3 days are left till Christmas! As I was sick for the last couple of days, I couldn’t stand my bed anymore and decided to bake gingerbread cookies. First time in my life!
It turned out simply fantastic and want to share the recipe with you. Maybe it will be a nice gift for somebody or your Christmas tree decorations.
Nonetheless, it is so nice to feel cozy at home with lights turned on, Christmas music playing and feeling cinnamon in the air.

You will need:

400g flour
100g butter
100g brown sugar
4 tbs. of honey
1 egg
1 t.s. baking powder
2 t.s. ground ginger
1 t.s. cinamon

      The process 

Blend the sugar, butter and a melted honey. Add one egg and mix it well.  Pour the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, grounded ginger and mix it one more time. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Place the chilled dough on a floured surface and roll a 0.5 cm ‘pancake’ and with a frames you have, squeeze it on a dough to make the biscuits.
Preheat the oven at 180C and bake for around 12 minutes. It is better to keep an eye, and maybe it will be enough to bake only for 10min.

Don’t forget to decorate it 🙂

To my all readers who are shoeholics! ❤

You will understand me, why I am writing this post. Simply I just want to show you, how beautiful these shoes are in reality! I bought them almost a week ago and every day I think that I made such a good investment and a purchase that it’s crazy. When people tell you ‘Nice Sneaks!’ in a store, work, gym or just in a metro, I fell like I nailed it! 😀

It also comes in a dusty bag with a silky ribbons, which makes the whole experience even nicer. What I can say about the shoes, that If you will find them somewhere to buy, get a half size bigger for more comfort. I love that the out sole is not flat and it’s like a small platform. It gives more confident and adds more chick look to your style. I have this thing for all the shoes which are flat but on a short platform.

Lately, Puma has improved a looot in their new launches and I fell like for the future I will get one more pair with the silky laces in a white lacquer style. I will upload a picture on my instagram later on, so don’t forget to check it out @worldbyenrika.

What do you think in general about the FENTY line? Any favorites? Let me know in the comments bellow 🙂

Gift ideas from Biok Laboratory

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

The time of the year when everybody gets crazy about presents. You spend hours in a shopping centres (unless you already know what your are looking for) , browsing net or magazines. Sometimes you spend ridiculous amount of time only for thinking and in the end you go to the drug store and end up of buying the candle or anything else what that person definitely doesn’t need.

This time, I want to share some nice, small and cute present ideas from Biok Laboratorija.

First set is from Rasa, it’s a shampoo, conditioner-mask and a spray conditioner for dyed hair. It’s a new line for coloured hair, which makes them much more stronger, smoother, silkier and easier to control them.  It will contribute not only for the hair, but also for the scalp. The conditioner will give extra shine and the colour will stay longer on the hair.
If you don’t know what to give for your friend or mum, it would be a really nice, budget friendly present. Add some Christmas candies and wrap it nicely 🙂

Another is a gift for her and for him. Both from Lithuanian brand as well. Margarita offers a very nice packaging, which contains of the hand scrub, moisturizing hand cream and softening hand cream. All of them are with cranberries which means that it will smell like a real Christmas. You will have even a description of how to pamper your hands, which will make them smooth and silky, at the same time indulged of vitamins.

Last but not least is gift for him. Maybe it’s your grandfather/ father or your boyfriend? Or a best friend? I love the packaging that it has a small plane on a box. Means that you will get a travel size set of shaving cream, aftershave balm and aftershave cream. All of them are 75ml which is not bad at all. It will soothe the irritations and moisturize the skin after shaving.

All of these products you can shop at http://eparduotuve.biok.lt/lt/

All of these presents definetely would make somebody happy on a Christmas day. Budget friendly, from all the heart. Remember that in the end of the day on a Christmas it’s all about the love and care for your beloved ones. Maybe it’s a handmade poster or a cookies? Just be yourself and add some love in everything you do.

Thank you for reading!

When you find a perfect cashmere coat

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

Autumn is almost over and the chilly weather starts again. This year I got an amazing present from my mummy- long, navy cashmere coat. I was so happy when I saw it. Classy, sophisticated and every time I wear it, it gives me so much confidence that I can climb the mountains!

2 row golden buttons in front makes a classy statement. Fits with almost every kind of clothes and styles and of course it is perfect for any occasion.

This time I had it with more a casual outfit and a pair of heels. That’s what I love a lot about it, that it makes me feel cozy and warm. You kind of wrap yourself in a long jacket or coat and feel secure.

And the best feeling is when people stop you in a street and asks you where did you bought it or that it looks amazing! ❤

I can highly recommend to invest in a good quality pieces such as coats, bags or shoes cause first, it will last for a long time and all the time it will look as you bought it yesterday.

What is the best combo to have long and curled eyelashes?

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

I was waiting for so long until I will have time to spread the word about the perfect eyelashes combo/secret! Few months ago I bought Diorshow Maximizer Lash plumping serum at Sephora and was quite satisfied with the final result (at that time I used Lancome Hypnose mascara on top). In the end of October I had a birthday party where all my beloved friends came to congrats me and of course I got a different bits and bops as a presents. One of the was a set of Marc Jacobs beauty, which contained this absolutely amazing mascara, ultra glittery mascara pen (it’s like the eye liner just for your eye lashes) and the gel eye crayon.

And what do you think? I was sooooo surprised by the result that it’s crazy!  I tried the mascara alone, it was pretty good, but the Dior lash serum made such a magic on my eye lashes that I was staring at the mirror for like 20 minutes 🙂

 O!Mega Lash Volumizing mascara which is water-based formula makes your lashes look voluminous and the eyes pops, making such a big statement on your face. Nevertheless it has some good ingredients as well. Such as  ” It incorporates a special size-increasing blend of rice bran, bayberry, carob, and African acacia tree extracts for maximum lash-expanding impact. The essential oils deeply condition lashes, while vitamins B5 and C strengthen and hold them in place for even longer wear”. (sephora.com)

It looks luxurious in your makeup bag and does the perfect job.

If you tried the diorshow serum, you know hat I am talking about. It’s like a magic in your bag. You can also apply it as a serum and leave it overnight, so it would help to protect the lashes from falling off too often! 🙂

Hope you liked it and see you soon.

Yours,
Enrika
