Hello everyone! This post just got bigger and bigger, in only the last three days. I swear, in the end of June I was positive I will have only 4 products to show you, and then I went to the hairdresser and my iHerb package arrived. And there we have it, new stuff!
Group photo does not have my licila.si package on it, because I simply forgot to take a photo of it today, as I already took them right after I got the package, so I could start using the make up right away. No matter, here it is:
Licila.si surprised me with a gorgeous package in June. Makeup Revolution mini palette Lock & Load has some really stunning shades! I already used about half of them and I am in love! Plus the eyebrow set in the end is great, the darker shade suits me perfectly.
Makeup Revolution Baked Eyeshadow palette Bang Bang is another set of dark eyeshadows. including bluish and gunmetal shades. I haven't used it yet, but checked if it similar to MeMeMe blue set, and it is not.
Makeup Revolution nail polish Change My Life I already showed, so you already had the chance to read my review on it.
|Look at the colours in Lock & Load!! Looove it!|
Another new things in my make up department were these two beauties.
Real Techniques Blush Brush and Stippling Brush. Boy oh boy, am I late to the Real Techniques party! These two are amazing brushes, really. I got them on iHerb, I had enough rewards points to get them practically for free. And they are awesome, I am definitively buying more RT brushes!!
And now something for my face, as we are already talking about iHerb:
Derma E Evenly Radiant Brightening Toner with Vitamin C. It was on sale or something on iHerb and I read only the best things about this toner, so I gave it a go. It smells amazing!
Alaffia Authentic African Black Soap with Peppermint. Ok. Ok. I know it is a rookie mistake to buy anything for the skin with peppermint in it, but I needed a cleanser and I hoped the peppermint isn't too strong. It kinda is, but here's another thing: I really like the feeling the peppermint leaves on my face. Silly, as I know it is an irritant for the skin, yes. The peppermint is, however, quite noticeable, so I will definitively go with the regular black soap next time (and I hope it's going to be in stock then!). I love African Black Soap, previously I used the Akamuti one and I love how clean my face feels after using it.
Daiso Japan Charcoal Mask for removing blackheads. I decided to try this thing after reading the review on mejkap.si of it. It is a fun mask, as it is completely black and dries up to a totally solid mask on your face. ORC TIME! :D Anyway, the removal is easy and the first impression good. As Krvava Meri nicely puts it in the review - the old blackheads will need to go out by pressing them out, but for regular cleaning of your pores this mask is a good thing, after using it, most of my pores are clean and consequently look smaller.
Lately I am not particularly happy with my skin condition, each of my pores feels like it is the size of our Postojna cave, and I felt like my Korres cleanser did not clean my skin well in the end, that is why I went for the African Black Soap, as I know it is a good cleanser. And as for buying on iherb, I can only recommend it. The packages arrive fast, and even though I paid customs taxes for this package, I still paid less then half of what I would need to pay, would I buy these items (or substitutes of them) in Slovenia.
And something for my hair! I went to the hairdresser on Monday, after a year and a half. About 15 cm of my hair lenght went bye-bye, but I am so happy to have healthy hair again! I went to a new hair salon and I am in love with my new hair stylist! She is amazing, first time I actually saw someone really paying attention to cutting my ends, not just grabbing and cutting them off (like I could do by myself at home) and for the first time almost the entire conversation went about my hair care and what I am doing wrong or could do better. Without any pressure to actually buy anything from the salon as well, which is always a great plus. But I went there in want to try and buy some products and so I decided to try Paul Mitchell Instant Moisture Daily Shampoo, as my shampoos are probably my weakest link in the hair care (next to the anti-dandruff one, that I always pick with great care, I usually just pick one that looks nice in the bottle). And Paul Mitchell Moisture Protective Oil, since I am working on the sun a lot. I have already decided to buy Orofluido Sahara for that cause, but then got caught up in Paul Mitchell and decided on a whim. Still, Orofluido Sahara is next, I have a feeling I will be using these things rather quickly.
I already have two looks with Makeup Revolution Lock & Load prepared for you, so that's a review coming up rather soon, and if you want a separate review of any of the other products, just let me know!
