New Favorite lipstick

28.06.2015



Let me introduce the only lipstick I currently swear by : Marc Jacobs Lip Gel lipstick in the shade "Boy Gorgeous". I usually don't buy high brand lipstick but I made an exception for this. Indeed, I was in my local sephora when I came across a lady who was wearing the most beautiful pink I had ever seen. Of course I immediately asked her what she was wearing on her lips. She simply showed me the Marc Jacobs corner. I tried it and just felt in love with the color. I LOVE it. It is so flatering on my skintone and looks so edgy :


Such a beautiful intense pink 


Not only the colour looks stunning plus the packaging is so elegant and casual with I love. It doesn't dry the lips at all and offers a beautiful matte look on your lips almost all day. I will repurchase this lipstick for sure and I would totally recommend it !

HOW I SAVED MY HAIR


Two years ago I felt for that ombre hair trend. I liked it at first, I felt so cool, it was the first time that I was dying my hair that light. I went from dark hair to blond : 


What I didn't know was that it was just a BIG mistake. It completely ruined my hair : I had horrible knots, brushing them  was a very hard time and my hair started breaking very easily. My hair was so dry and uneven as you can see :


But thanks god, some magic products exist to fix bad hair problem. Here are my routine products :


1. Head & Shoulders shampoo : That is the only shampoo that doesn't grease my hair, it just makes my hair soft and light.
2.John Freida Frizz Ease Miraculous Recovery mask : By far the BEST mask I have ever tried. In 5 minutes, you get insanely soft and shinny hair. It smells amazing, and works even after months and months of use. I only swear by this mask, I could not live without it.

Those two products definatly contribuated to recover my hair damage. But I also use once a week that magic stuff called COCONUT OIL. At first I though it was just a trend but it actually works amazingly. I apply the oil 3 to 1 hour before I wash my hair. After a few use I've noticed some dramatic changes on my hair : no more knots, but gorgeous soft shinny hair :) !


I totally recommend coconut oil to all of you, I promise you will get amazing results. Just look at my hair now, I just went from zero to hero haha :


What are your favourite hair rescue products ?

E.L.F MATTE LIP COLOR #RichRed REVIEW
 


I saw this lipstick on a Youtube makeup tutorial and I totally crushed on the color called  "Rich Red". 
Almost impossible to get it online as it was sold out everywhere. But thanks god after a month, I finally found it on Amazon and I got it yay... And I am very pleased with the product. It is similar to a chubby liptick but with a matte finish as claimed by the product's name :


But I won't say it is 100% matte, it is between matte and sheer which is perfect cause it doesn't make your lips dry. Your lips are moisturized with a light matte finish. The color is pretty pigmented, and shows on dark skins like mine which a good point. It is the perfect effortless casual red that you can wear on any occasion, that's what I like the most about this lipstick. You don't look like you tried so hard to look good with red lips as you can see :


But one thing I was disapointed with was the poor lasting power of this lipstick. After three little hours I noticed the color started fading. So you need to touch up like 3 times a day unfortunalty. That is the only bad side of this Matte Lip Color. Anyway, for the cheap price, it totally worth it. I really love the color and I will definatly purchase this again cause it just the perfect red to keep it simple.

THE BEST CONTOUR BRUSH EVER


I am not into crazy dramatic contouring, but love the bony cheeks looks, it gives more dimension to my face. 
I use a powder bronzing powder by Nars in the shade Casino. I used to used the Real Techniques Contour brush but I felt like I was wasting too much product and too much time contouring my cheeks as the brush was small and round. This why I decided to make a change and go for a flat Nars's inspired "Ita brush", of course way too expensive for my little budget. I went on Aliexpress.com (Ebay Style super cheap website) and found exactly was I was looking for : 


A large, long flat brush. The brush is even better than I have been expecting : the quality is just really good. The brush truely looks like a high brand brush, I love it and it's super soft. It really helps me contouring : In a second a obtain a perfectly contoured cheek and it wastes way less powder than with my RT brush, the difference is HUGE.


Girls you need this brush in your life ;) !!! If you want to get this brush, just let me know and I will give you the link.

Which brush do you use for contouring ladies ?

SOAP & GLORY 
BEAUTY SLEEP ACCELERATOR : NEVER AGAIN
 

 

I have been looking for so long for a night cream and I was really happy when I came across this Soap&Glory night cream called the "Beauty Sleep Accelerator" : a cream that was supposed to hydrate the skin all night long. The retro packaging totally attracted me like a magnet and I have heard tons of good things about this brand so I decided to purchase this product. 
Back home, I was super excited to try the cream. Once I opened it, I was hypnotized by the delicious peachy perfume of this cream with a smoothy texture.  


This cream looked absolutly perfect at first sight  and I really thought it would be my best friend lol. So I naively applied the cream all over my face before going sleeping. I felt my skin was perfectly hydrated.
BUT when I woke the following day, the hydratation was completly gone and I felt like my skin was kinda rough. I looked myself in the mirror and bad surprise : I had little spots all over my face ewwww...Of course it was caused by this cream. It took almost a week to get my face back to normal. I even went to see the doctor and he told me I was allergic to the perfume of the cream which was particulary smelly. 
Anyway, I was extremely disapointed by this cream : the lack of hydratation and the composition which was obviously not adapted to all skintones. I would NOT recommend this cream if you have a sensitive skin or allergies. 

Have you ever tried Beauty Sleep Accelerator ? Did you go through the same struggle as me ? Or did you enjoy it ?

 Saturday was my birthday, and of course, partying with my friends was an obligation as it's almost my last "young" year LOL. I decided to get my hole outfit from Missguided. I received my express order in almost 2 days and I was super pleased with it :


I opted for a white tube midi skirt and a black top. The quality was pretty good.
