My recent #beauty buys .. and something beautiful, too. It's my dream necklace from Glitter - stunning isn't she? ♥ Will show you more pics next time, so this post wont be never ending one. Today I'm focusing on the cosmetics department of my latest finds instead.
Oh well well, I'm seeing a colour theme here! Pink is one of those colours that come and go in my life.
At some point it was way too girly for me to wear, or even to have any stuff in pink tone! Mind of a teenager works in mysterious ways ..Or speaking of today, mind of a minimally obsessive-compulsive adult with daily changing and evolving style. That's me, constant process. :) On the other hand, I used to love lime green seven or eight years ago, and even wished for plates and mugs in that shade, but now I can't really stand it at all! What's up with that. I suppose I've got sections in my life like Picasso with his blue period and such.
I do have a little artistic bone in my body, after all.
Make up brush set - 2€
Adorable ones ! Might have to buy more...
Klippoteket dry shampoo (LOVE it!) - 4€
Make up from Seppälä, all -50%
Can you believe I've never tried fake nails, ever. My mum had a set once when I was 10 or something, and I think I borrowed (stole :D) it from her but never got to wear those before the glue dried. But there's a first try for everything I guess, seventeen years later. It says that these are pre-glued nails, so I suppose it helps a bit. I can't afford gel nails at this point (and the thought of maintaining them sounds too demanding), so my own teeny tiny nails and something like these acrylic, temporary ones will have to do for now. And who could resist cute set of pink roses like these? They were only 1€, yay!
I still remember like it was yesterday when this brand arrived in our local department store.
It was perfect for my early-teen wallet and everything also looked really nice and fresh compared to adults make up. I'm not sure when they stopped selling it, I suppose while I switched to "all grown up" -brands, but clothing store Seppälä still had it widely represented in their cosmetics section. That's where I spotted these beauties actually, and these are the two items I absolutely fell in love at the store! Apparently they have pulled out the whole brand from the store now..? I wish they would have gotten even more Wet 'n Wild -products in sale, but these were about the only items available. Few years ago I ordered couple of their products from Nelly, but I gave the loose mineral powder to a friend of mine and the other was a bronzing powder with a lot of sparkles (which I've only recently fallen for, the bigger the better - the sparklier the more I love) and I think it will be perfect product for me this summer!
I might have found the perfect pink tone for me. It has a little bit of coldness / blue in it and in my opinion it looks very nice next to my pale skin and green eyes. This lipstick is also very moisturising and it's really convenient one to ably - it's so creamy soft mmyum. But that's also the downside of this - it doesn't last on your lips. After applying the lipcolour I started cleaning my jewelry corner and around the time I was done (couple hours) the lipcolour had gone. Well at least it disappeared completely and didn't leave a weird ring on my lips, haha!
Now I must comment that my skin has improved a lot in short amount of time. I don't have any make up on other than the lipstick. I believe the improvement in my skintone has something (read: a LOT) to do with face cream I got from Anna Ruth's Simple Salves for testing. Did you read my post about her products yet? If not, take a look straight away.
Light fools a bit, this is a bit darker tone than the upper photo shows.
I'm not sure how I feel about this palette yet.. The gold tone is just delightful and perfect for me, that's what I'm sure about, but what will I do with those others. That dark brown is so overpowering, even though it has lovely gold shimmerr, that I wont be able to use it on my eyelids - not other than as a eyeliner. And the pink is just a really cute one, not sure how it will look on me personally. If I try these out I'll post new images then. But so far, based on this #swatch I have mixed emotions whether this was a miss-step or not.. Obviously all the colours and products in the World can't suit everyone ;)
