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.

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!

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!

March Favorites 2017!

 

Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

March passed so fast that it is crazy!! And it is my first monthly favorites I am doing on a blog. So  grab a cup of coffee or tea and I hope you will enjoy reading my March favorites!  If you will have any tips for me, leave them in a comment section bellow.

Don’t want to make this post too long, so let’s better start with the first item which is my all time favorite Face Primer Plus (illuminating base) from Estee Lauder.

I love it not only because it makes my skin smooth and perfectly prepares my skin for foundation application, but my skin becomes radiant and healthy looking. You can also wear it alone, because it will hide all the pores and impurities if you have it on your skin. Your skin will glow very naturally even under a thin layer of foundation.

Next this month favorite is Diorskin Forever foundation. It gives your skin a light matte finish, but also with a healthy glow. If you will use it daily, it will reduce the pores from your skin, which is perfect if you are having a breaking skin. What I love mostly about this foundation, that it is so easy to find the right shade as it has 28 in total. It last for almost all day and your skin does not feel tight. It will give you a second skin feeling for sure. For me to reach the perfect finish was using a damp beauty blender and not the brush.

Talking about the brows, I have 2 favorite products for them. One is a tinted brow brush from Nyx and this Brow Luminizer from Eylure. It has 2 endings, one of them is matt-nude shade and another end is a highlighter. Not too thick, not too light, perfect for everyday use to enhance the light of your eyebrows. Also it makes all the make up to look more set up and cleaner.

 

  Continuing with the face, I cannot not to mention this amazing and budget friendly Strobing Make Up Shimmers Kit from Wibo. I got it as a present from my mum after New Years, and as you can see from two highlighter shades I was using it a lot. If you apply it in a morning it will last for all day long and will give you an amazing highlight, which you can also use under eyebrows or as a shadow palette if you like a shimmery eyeshadows. It blends very easily, comes with a compact brush and a wide mirror.

Last, but not least is creamy Rouge Allure Gloss from Chanel, in colour 137 Super Nude. It’s an intense colour lipstick but on the lips looks like a lip gloss. What I love mostly, that it is a long lasting gloss, it stays on your lips for soo long, without drying your lips, as it has a hydrating formula as well. Even if you have a meal or drinks while wearing this lip gloss, you will still see the contour line around your lips.  Shade perfectly fits for every day use and even for the evening if you add a lip liner.

So that was my March favorites, hope you will like it and talk to you soon!

This super nice pink color is so cool to have for summer! Very light and soft lipstick, which is enriched with shea, mango butter and vitamin E, will always hydrate your lips and will keep them smooth! 

Especially in the summer, when the sun is pretty strong or you like to swim in the sea, you have to take care of your lips. And when you can make in a stylish way, what do you need more? ❤️

What I like the most is the packing and it wears for a long time!

Healthy cosmetics from Marmozel

  

This adorable beauty actually decorates my dressing table! It is a hand made natural products-cosmetics from Lithuania called Marmozel. So Parisian…

All the materials are organic and certified. Produces from unrefined vegetable oils, aromatic herbal water, herbal powders, extracts, waxes, clays and essential oils!

Let’s start my journey with Marmozel ❤️

 

 

Moisturizing nourishing face cream. It is a bit oily, due to the ingredients of avocado, sunflower seed, sweet almond and apricot kernel oils. But then you put just a small amount onto wet skin it absorbs very well, at least for me. I could see that my skin became lighten and allways nourished. Love it!

But for the people with oily skin I don’t think it would suit very well. 

  

 

The next one is Floral Facial toner. Very nice! I always have it now in my purse ❤️ Refresh your skin instantly by leaving luxorious sent of roses and jasmin. It is recommended to be used before applying some cream or oil, but I even spray it during my work hours then I feel that the skin gets dry. Or even if you don’t wear any make-up but you spend the whole day outside it’s nice to refresh your face and take out all the pollution. This spray tonic actually moisturize and purifies the skin and of course this amazing smell stays for a long time on a face ❤️

 

 Natural deodorant with Alum powder. Very easy and comfortable to use! Leaves some herbs and roses smell and most importantly does not clog pores and does not disrupt the body’s elimination functions. I really liked it, because it really works! And even you can carry it in your purse and no one will recognize that it is deodorant. 

 

 

Lip balm with camomile and pitch. Softens so well my lips that I want to apply more and more! 😄 My lips looks nourished and protected against coldness ordryness all the time ❤️  Has a specific smell but you cannot taste it! 

All in all, I felt in Love with Marmozel ❤️ Highly recommend to try it. They have products for hair, men and even home!

Thank you Marmozel! ❤️

With Love,
