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,

All about the silky hands and hair!

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Do you know the feeling when you are really happy about the product you are using? This time I want to say that I am so happy (never was so excited about the drug store products!) that want to buy for all my friends and family members to see how good it is and I will repurchase every single of it for many more times for sure.

Let’s start with the hand soap. Firstly, let me say that I have never thought that there will be a day when I will write in my blog about the hand soap! Haha, sounds hilarious. First time I tried this hand soap at my boyfriends parents house. I was so surprised about the silky feeling, cherry scent- which stays on a hands for a few hours and most importantly that it is a Lithuanian product made by Margarita! It is so creamy and moisturizing. The cherry extract protects your hands from every day environmental damage and milk proteins moisture the skin and stimulates cell regeneration.

If you have a chance- try it! You won’t be unsatisfied ❤

Continuing the topic about the silky hands, simply a MUST HAVE is a hand cream. Especially when a weather is pretty cold, you have to moisturise them more often than usually, to keep them nice and protected.  I was a big Dove fan before, but not super crazy about their products. Until I found this hand cream. After I bought the first tube, on my next day I went back to the store and purchased 2 more! 🙂 It’s even better that a body oil from goodness series, can you imagine?! All my colleagues at work already tried it, I mean I persisted them to try it, because is freaking amazing! It leave your skin luminous and silky. You just want to touch the hands more and more. Skin feels like you just had a few hours of SPA, but the reality is that you use it every day and everywhere you go. You simply cannot stop of applying more and more…

Last, but not least is 3 Miracle Oil from Aussie. It is a lightweight oil treatment for dry and damaged hair. I tried so many different hair treatments, serums and oils. This one became one of my top hair oils ( let’s not forget Biosilk). It consists of Australian macadamia nut oil, australian jojoba seed oil and avocado oil. All the key ingredients to have the flawless hair are together in one bottle. You need just 1-3 pumps on your palms, massage it and apply directly to your hair. It can be used on a dry or wet hair. Leaves a soft scent which lasts for all day. Especially I love applying it on the splits, so you can see the difference immediately.

Will repurchase every single of them for many more times for sure! Let me know if you have tried it and what are your opinions!

Yours,
Enrika
