March & April Favourites.

Hello everyone,
I decided to combine two month again and do a favourites post. I think it may stay like this, that I will just combine every two months together.
Before I get to the favourites I just want to say that I'm really trying to post every week and do have some interesting ideas for the future and I hope you will enjoy them. If you want me to write about something or do anything let me know, I would love to do something you are interested in.
Now let's start the favourites..

 Rimmel Apocalips Lip Laquer in 501 Stellar - I absolutely love these lip sticks/lip glosses, it's my third one and I will still keep buying them. They are great quality and the price is very good.  I also mentioned the rest of them in this post.

The Color Boost Bourjois in 03 Orange Punch - Again it's my third lipstick from this range of Bourjois Color Boost. It's a great lipstick and I already wrote about a different one in my October Favourites.

Le Petit Marseiliais Orange Blossom Shower Gel - I discovered this product by watching Tanya's Burr vlog from Florida and she had the Lemon one or something like that in a green package. I decided to buy this one as I loved the smell, but I promised myself that I'm going to buy other ones too as they are just amazing. This one smells like orange and flowers. It's so pretty for the spring time. It makes your skin very smooth and soft, also it's very moisturizing. 

Rings - I know it's not a beauty but I just love these. I got obsessed with rings recently and I just wear them all the time. I got these from H&M and the minti colour just got me. 

L'oreal True Match Foundation in N1 Ivory - Recently I saw so many people using this foundation and all of my foundations that are medium/full coverage are almost gone plus I'm not so happy with them anymore, so I decided to give it a go.  It's a great foundation for all skin types and if you have acne it can cover it pretty well. You can build this foundation very easily as the formula is very runny and light and it blends so nicely and fast. There are many colours of this foundation, as it splits into three groups of skin colour : Natural, Cool and Warm. I'm sure you will find the right colour for you.  I have been using this foundation from the moment I bought it. It last quite long and you can alway just use powder. 

Rimmel Day 2 Night Mascara in 001 Black - This product was in my favourites already so you can go there and have a read for more details, but recently I just got into using it more again becuase I switched from the Maybelline Falsies. 
Maybelline Colorsensation Shine Gloss  in 420 Glorious Grapefruit - I wanted to buy a lip gloss so much so I decided to go for this one. I'm very happy with it as it's not sticky, the colour is so pretty and it looks amazing with a lipstick with a similar shade. This shade is so pretty like a nice peachy/orange lip gloss great for spring and summer. Also it smells like grapefruit so that's another plus. 

Inglot Lipstick in 858 - I absolutely love this lipstick. it was my first Inglot lipstick and I I have been using it so much this month. It's very long lasting, it smells like berries and the price is very low. On the photo below it kind of looks like a red, but trust me it's more like a orange/pink shade. For that price it's a very good quality and the packaging is also very nice and it feels more luxurious. 

Essie Nail Polish in Need A Vacation ( pink ) & Resort Fling ( peachy/orange ) -  As you may know I love Essie nail polishes, they are my favourite. The pink one was in my favourites before and it's a lovely baby pink shade. The peachy/orange nail polish is for the new Resort Collection. It's a small size one, but the colour is very spring like and I have been using it few times these past two months. 

From Left:
Rimmel Apocalips in 501 Stellar
Color Boost Bourjois  in 03 Orange Punch
Inglot in 858
Maybelline Lip Gloss in 420 Glorious Grapefruit

Essie Nail Polish in Cocktails & Coconuts ( cream/gold ) and Under The Twilight ( plumy ) - Again Essie nail polishes, they are amazing and these two are from the Resort Collection too and they are both amazing colors and of course the quality is always great.

NYX HD Photogenic Concealer in CW02 Fair/Clair -  I may have found my favourite concealer! Well I know I said good things about the Rimmel Match Perfection one, and yes it's still a great concealer and I think I have three tubes of that one already, but that one is more light while this one is great for blemishes and for under eyes.  They have very light colours which is amazing, as I'm very pale so I will be definitely repurchasing it when I finish it. 

Statement gold necklace from Stradivarius - It's my first statement necklace and when I bought it I just knew I'll be using this almost everyday. I was totally right. Since I bought this I'm obsessed with these kind of accessories and I'm on the hunt for a new one. 

Now let's move to the non beauty favourites:

Go Do - Jonsi
Best Day Of My Life - American Authors 
Don't Want To Be Your Girl - W.E.T
Pumpin' Blood - NONONO
Bloom (Close To You ) ( Alex Brandt Remix ) - The Paper Kites 

The Hunt

The Huger Games: Catching Fire
A Long Way Down ( LOVE THAT FILM )

Detox Water/Water ( I'll do a post about this! )
Virgin Mojito

Zoeva Sun Power Palatte Review

Hello everyone,
Sorry I didn't post for so long, but school work is just crazy recently and I have no idea how I'll keep everything up, also I wanted to post something Easter related, but I forgot to take photos for the post which was very smart of me to do. Anyway I was just looking at some of my makeup and I decided to do a review on my favourite piece at the moment - the Zoeva palette with 10 bronzers and blushes. I got it from my lovely friend and I'm so thankful for it, as I got obsessed with it very quickly.
I have this thing that before I buy any beauty product I have to read reviews and really think about the product, while looking for this Zoeva palette, I didn't find many reviews on it that's why I decided to do one myself.

Let's start with the packaging and price. 
Well the packaging I think is very good. It's very simple with the white writing which makes it look more expensive or at least that's what I think. When it comes to price I don't think it's that much for a palette with 10 bronzers and blushes. It cost me around £15, which I think is very good for that quality and the amount. 
Now let's go to the main product, I was very exited when I opened the box, it all looked so pretty and clean. Anyway the colours are all shimmery or glittery, there is only one matt bronzer that is quite dark, but also not not too dark and I feel like everyone would look good in that dark brown

Let's start with bronzers, there are 4 bronzers ( 1,2,3 & 8 ). There is only one matt bronzer                         
(Number 3) which is not so good, but I do prefer shimmer ones so if you are looking for a matt bronzers you won't find them here. As a matt bronzer it is very dark (the picture doesn't show it just us), but on the skin is not that bad, even if you have very pale skin colour it will look nice. It's great for contouring and it's very easy to blend just like any other bronzers.  Number 1 & 8 are my most used ones, except the matt one that I use from time to time. They do have shimmer in them but it's no crazy and they look beautiful on the skin. They have gold in them, but I think they will look amazing on every skin colour. All of the bronzers are very creamy and easy to blend, but be careful not to use too much. I never used nr. 2 as I think it's a bit too glittery, it would be a nice colour to actually use as an eye shadow, but I'll give it a go one day. 

As you can see there is more blushes then bronzers in this palette, which for me is great as I'm a bit obsessed with blushes and if I could I would buy them all the time. All of these are shimmery,  not glittery they are just skimmery, but again they look really good on the skin and give you that nice glow. Number 4 & 7 are more on the red side, especially the 7. I don't think so I have used it, but it's a beautiful colour. When it comes to number 4 it's quite dark and burgundy, so sometimes I just use that on my cheeks and skip the bronzer if I'm very lazy. It's very nice and it can be very dark or you can apply it lightly.  5,6, 9 & 10 are pinky/peachy blushes that I absolutely love and I wear them everyday. They are skimmery like I said, but they won't be too glowy even if you have oily skin. 

After all I absolutely love this palette, the colours are beautiful and it's very useful just to have it like when you are going for holidays you have everything you need in there. The price and packaging is very good, and the quality of the product is amazing. 
There is only one problem with blushes especially, because they are so pigmented if you have a bit too much on the brush it can be hard to apply. Just like the sleek blushes they can leave you with too much product ( like a smudge, I don't know how to explain it good, but I hope you know what I mean ) in a particular area of you face/cheeks. 
TIP: If you want to buy this palette or you have it and you have problems with applying the blush nicely without any smudge, I found out that if you are using a blush brush ( I have the Real Techniques one ),or any with similar shape, use the flatter bit and go towards your hair line and don't apply a lot. It's better to build it up. Just do it very lightly with less product and it will look amazing.  Later if you are still not happy with the results take your powder or foundation brush and just blend it. I hope it makes sense what I'm saying. 

Also I just want to say again that I'll try to post regularly. I have some ideas for the future like a DIY or Lookbook and few more, but if there is anything you want me to wrote about please contact me. 
One more thing the Inspiring Wednesdays won't be ever week, but every two weeks. Hope that's okay with you.

Inspiring Wednesday #2

Hey everyone,
Sorry I didn't post on Sunday, but school is so crazy right now. I'll try to post something on the weekend.
Hope you like this weeks Inspiring Wednesday.

These days we don't really know who are 
our real friends. 
I know that most of us are suffering from having 
problems with fake friends. 
I hope this goes away after school when you can pick 
your true friends by yourself and just spend time with the 
true ones.
Anyway what I figured out and started to apply to my life
if there are toxic people in your life get rid of them!
I know it can he hard, but at least try to avoid them or spend the smallest amount of time possible. 
I'm sure most of us have that one or more best friends, 
I know when you are in school there is so much drama
but let's just hope it will disappear. 
Just remember don't force yourself to do something you are not okay with.
Stick with people that you love and feel comfortable with.

Inspiring Wednesday #1

Hello everyone,
So like I said in my last post I'll be posting a quick and short post every Wednesday with a quote, saying or something that I write to make you go through the rest of the week. I'm so sorry I didn't post it yesterday, but I started doing my Biology lab and it's just took me forever. Anyway I hope you will like them.

Yeah I know what you think it's easy and we do believe in our dreams.
But I know that some people don't 
they have these days and hours where they don't believe
they can get there or do what they want
YES you can do that!
Just believe in yourself
Show everyone that told you different that you can do that!
Don't be afraid to dream and make those dreams come true. 
If you believe you can do EVERYTHING 
you will get what you want! 
Don't get heaters or anyone get to you throughout that journey
of making you dreams come true!
I believe you can do that and you should too!
