June Favourites, updates and wishlist


COLOURPOP Shadow Combination

Bare Necessities & Stone Cold Fox 

These are so excellent, specifically Stone Cold Fox. I have 2 9-pan combinations from Colourpop, which are both truly excellent, however I believe these are even much better, especially the shimmery tones. Basically all eye shadows I have actually attempted up until now on the eyes have outstanding coloring, they are so smooth and mix with such ease. There’s a lot of taupe tones in different depths, so I can develop a good fundamental natural appearance and the shimmers can quickly be gotten with a brush (unlike in So Taupe) and do not require much layering on the eyelids. Eyeshadows last well on me and I get no creasing, however I typically utilize a setting spray, because I’m presently evaluating 3, so that is most likely assisting a lot. I believe I have whatever I require with these 2 combinations and I’m extremely delighted with the quality.  

TOO Dealt With Born By Doing This Structure 


I have not purchased a high-end structure in a while, however this captured my eye when I was seeing Youtube videos for pale tones of structures suggestions. I got the shade Swan, which isn’t the lightest one, however the lighter Cloud looked so off-white on examples, I presumed it would be too light. Swan is in fact a little bit darker than my complexion, so not perfect, however it mixes in ok. I have not had it long and I have actually just used it with my summer season skin care (which is glowy), however the name fits this structure. It’s got an excellent quantity of protection, about medium, so I just require a little bit of concealer under my eyes and on an old imperfection mark, however in spite of the greater protection, it appears like skin and extremely natural. It uses perfectly through the day too without flaking or making my lines extremely apparent. It fits my dry skin.


I hardly ever discussed this, though I simply published an evaluation about it, however I have actually had it because november and it’s the concealer I utilize on a lot of days. It’s got an excellent quantity of protection for me, it’s not matte so it looks more natural and it lasts well, however its primary plus is the quantity of great active ingredients, so it’s makeup with skin care. It has niacinamide, vitamin C, caffeine, resveratrol, hyaluronic acid, peptides, salicylic acid and a number of extracts. Shade Flax is a little bit dark and yellow, however like the TF structure it mixes in ok. 

My veteran favourite. This formula really seems like utilizing an eraser when there’s very little on the sponge. Though I use Clinique on a lot of days, I put the shade Brightener on the top to raise the location under my eye, because it has a pink tone to it. Otherwise I utilize shade 00 Ivory which fits me completely. 


Another old preferred and I have a backup for this due to the fact that I like it a lot. It’s such an incredible highlighter, a neutral champagne shade with an extreme radiance, however extremely great shimmer. Texture is something in between a powder and a cream, so I use it with fingers and mix the edges with a sponge if required. 

This is from the most recent Revlon’s line, which is created mainly for oily skin and I got all 3 items. I believed this line definitely will not be for me, however I discovered myself grabbing this powder on a lot of days. Typically I use Doctor’s Solution Rose All the time, which I still love, however I utilize skin care that leaves a strong radiance and an SPF over it, and this is more mattifying. It’s extremely carefully crushed, smooth and not extremely apparent on the skin. I discover this makes my skin and makeup look smoother and simply much better, plus it never ever adheres to a specific location, leaving an odd textured spot like it occurred to me at Maybelline Fit Me loose powder just recently. My skin is dry, so me stating this keeps me matte throughout the day is not the very best recommendation for the powder, however I saw evaluations remain in basic excellent. 


Advantage Wanderful World Blushes Powder Blusher 

Shellie (mini) and Willa

These are brand-new and Advantage rather uncommonly for them launched an entire collection, rather of simply one blush at a time like they utilized to do. I own a definitely ancient Coralista, which utilized to be my preferred and a lot of utilized blush, however I do not truly understand where it is at the minute. I selected a complete size Willa and a mini Shellie, which I view as a replacement for Coralista. These are remarkably pigmented. I just require to touch them with my fluffy blush brush and it suffices for my (given, extremely pale) skin. A mini will last me permanently (unfortunately they do not have a mini Willa, so I got the complete size). Willa is a warm-ish pink, more of a I-just-came-from-the cold shade for me, while Shellie is an appropriate coral that illuminates the face. Formula is smooth and mixes ok, though these are extremely pigmented and I require to use an extremely percentage, so it’s not like mixing a less pigmented blush that I can use slowly. I’m extremely thinking about getting a shade or more more of these. 

This is such a best naked shade for when I wish to specify my lips and have it appear like I have absolutely nothing on. I have actually applauded this formula prior to and it is among my outright favourites. It is among the most long-term and feather-light lipsticks, plus it’s matte, which is my favored surface. 

MILANI Color Fetish Matte Lip Makeup – The Plants Collection

320 Petal

I’m not entirely offered on the shade (example is someplace in this story in the meantime), because I mainly use either nudes or reds, however the quality of the formula should have an appreciation. For one it’s incredibly smooth and completely nontransparent in very first swipe, however I most value the remaining power, as it can make it through about 8h+ without fading much. 

Another of my preferred naked tones. This one is darker than Oriflame’s and it’s a not precisely a no-makeup appearance shade for me, however it’s a charming neutral that’s neither too pink nor too peachy. Formula is matte, however velvety sensation and I enjoy the format of it due to the fact that I can be accurate and it sort of works as a lip liner too. 


DEBORAH MILANO 24 Ore Waterproof Eye Pencil

5 Golden Green

I have actually understood that my makeup collection remains in basic rather old and in 2015 I hardly purchased anything brand-new, however my eye liners are especially old. I own a definitely ancient Urban Decay 24/7 eye liner in Stash, which I utilized to utilize every day, however it has actually ended up being clothes dryer and have not utilized it in a while. They ceased it because, so I set upon discover a replacement for my preferred green-gold shade. Fortunately I didn’t need to go far, as I discovered it in my regional DM. Deborah’s shade is comparable, however lighter. Formula is velvety, colour pay-off excellent and it lasts well. It wasn’t inexpensive for pharmacy, however it’s excellent quality.  


OLAPLEX No.9 Bond Protector Nourishing Hair Serum

The current Olaplex item, this one is a leave-in, which is not a cream with silicones like no.6, however a gel-ish liquid and I liked it quickly. I own all Olaplex items, however I’m still missing out on a spray leave-in amongst their offering, though this is close adequate or perhaps much better. It’s the primary step I use after rinsing the mask or conditioner and prior to my “army of normal leave-ins” (Joico K-Pak Liquid Reconstructor, Moroccanoil All-in-one leave-in conditioner and Palmer’s Hair Oil) and I discover my hair dries smoother. Formula is light and a percentage can be used to a big location, so I do not need to utilize more than a pump or more. I have not had it long, however up until now I’m a fan.   



KISS Strip Lash Adhesive

I required a much better glue than what’s consisted of in packages with Essences phony lashes (to be reasonable the bar is low) and I selected this due to the fact that it’s offered in DM & Müller and has excellent evaluations. It’s excellent and I’m grateful I selected it up. It holds throughout the day, the corners of the lashes stick immediately (that’s where Essence comes a cropper) and it isn’t in any method frustrating to utilize (it has a brush as the applicator, so you do not squander item). I utilized to have a Catrice and/or an Essence glue, which I have no concept if they are still offered, however this is a lot better. 

Likewise Essence half lashes are incredibly adorable. 


LA ROCHE-POSAY Anthelios UVMune 400 Undetectable Fluid SPF50+ Sun Cream

I like my Garnier Fluid, Nivea anti-pigment sun block and Shiseido Urban Environment Age Defense SPF 30, however LRP has a brand-new cutting-edge filter Mexoryl400 in this sun block and because I tend to invest rather a great deal of time in the sun, it believed this might be an excellent financial investment to make. It’s a replacement for their Shaka Fluid, which remained in the exact same product packaging. I have actually been utilizing it every day because I got it, however I make certain I use a structure over it due to the fact that the 2nd day attempting it, I simply rapidly used this en route and headed out. When I returned 2 hours later on and saw myself in the mirror – my skin was yellow. The cream has a faint yellow tint and I think my skin is so pale that it reveals. Otherwise it resembles Garnier’s Fluid, so extremely liquid and light, however less sophisticated and has a shine that lasts on the skin – I make it even worse with a vitamin C serum (I’m presently utilizing the less glossy SVR Ampoule Anti-Ox rather of Afrodita’s due to the fact that of that) and Balea’s niacinamide day cream. 

In some way I wound up with 3 brand-new setting sprays, the very first 2 are widely known and enjoyed, the last is brand-new on the marketplace. I bought Urban Decay’s All Nighter, which I had years earlier in the initial product packaging and a day after I positioned the order, I was sent out the Revlon and Milani variation. They are extremely comparable, all do what they are expected to, so make makeup last throughout the day, all have the exact same mist, which is not the finest I have actually attempted (that honour comes from ArtDeco), however has no big beads and all are extremely light on the skin.  

URBAN DECAY All Nighter Setting Spray Travel Size

A precious setting spray that does precisely what it assures. The majority of my makeup lasts throughout the day with it with the exception of blush. It’s practically the like the other 2 and I sort of trust it most due to the fact that it’s high-end, however on one celebration I have actually observed some flakiness on my nose, so it can be drying due to the alcohol material. 

MILANI Keep It Last Plants Scented Setting Spray

This is a restricted edition variation of the popular Make it Last Spray Setting Spray with included flower scent, which advises me of the old The Body Store LE aroma Honeymania, so a sweet flower scent. The aroma is its highlight and if you desire something with fragrance, this is the one, though aroma vanishes quick. I checked it with Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless structure, which doesn’t have the best staying power (looks so good on my skin, though) and by the end of the day, it was worn off from where I needed it most (red spots from old blemishes), but otherwise it was ok on other parts. Eyeshadow looked good, as did the lipstick, but blush was worn off. It’s the one at which I haven’t noticed drying (yet? It also has alcohol 2nd, but also niacinamide 3rd on the list, so ingredients-wise, this is the nicest).  

This one is made for oily skin and it can be drying, as I’ve also noticed flakies on my nose on one occasion, but I kind of like it most. It promises a blurring effect and I do feel my skin looks best with this one. It’s nothing specific, but the makeup on a whole looks smoother. I wish they made a more hydrating version of this, but if you have oily skin, this may just be the best choice. 

Since I already mentioned the other two products, I may as well mention the Grip Matte primer. Formula is gel-lotion and a very silky feeling one under the fingers. It makes my skin feel so smooth to the touch, it’s nothing I’ve felt before, as it does not have that classic silicone feel to it. Foundation applies nicely over it, smoother than without a primer. It says it blurs pores, which is partly true, by that I mean since it’s clear, you need to apply a foundation over it to see the full effect, but it’s not like Benefit’s Porefessional Pearl. The problem with this line and my dry skin is that I can only use one product at a time in my routine. I used all three at once and my skin felt so dry and tight, however, my makeup was pretty perfect when I took it off. Skin looked smooth and completely matte, foundation didn’t slip into lines, my eye makeup looked like freshly applied, only the blush was gone, but I was rubbing my cheeks at one point because I was removing dust (I was also rubbing my eyes because something fell into my eye. Twice). I think this line is worth a try if you have oily skin.



NAJ OLEARI Absolute Stay Eyeshadow 04 Golden Brown & 05 Pearl Taupe – I’ve been testing these in Müller the last two times I was there. I’m looking for new cream eyeshadows to renew my stash and these proved to be by far the very best from what I could test in drugstores. Creamy, very pigmented and once they set, they don’t wipe off the skin – they are essentially dupes for Kiko’s. I’m mostly drawn to these two neutral shades, but several are nice. 
NAJ OLEARI Luminous Eye Pencil 02 Pearly Brown – an eyeliner that would replace my Urban Decay Bourbon. It’s a medium brown with gold flecks and a nice, smooth formula. 

BENEFIT Dandelion & PomPom Blush Powder – I already praised the formula above and these are the two shades I’m most interested in getting next. Dandelion is the only shade that survived from the old line up. 

KISS Falscara – Apparently this is quite popular and praised. You stick these under the lashes and they are supposed to look like lash extensions, since there is no band visible. They are insanely expensive in Müller, though, over 22 €, but you get the special glue and tweezers, while you can repurchase just the lashes later, though we don’t have that set here.

CATRICE Cheek Lover Oil-Infused Blush – I love the Oil-Infused highlighter and I’m considering getting the blush too. I’ve been put off by the coral shade, but lately I’ve been enjoying such colours. 

K18 Leave-in Molecular Repair Hair Mask – some fancy new insanely expensive hair peptide-based technology, which is hailed as the new Olaplex or even better. Obviously I’m interested. It’s not a mask, but you’re supposed to wash the hair with shampoo and then just apply this leave-in. Bottles are so stupidly small, but I can’t help myself be interested. 

SOL DE JANEIRO Brazilian Glossy Nourishing Anti-Frizz Hair Oil – SDJ made a hair silicone-oil with their traditional scent and that sounds so excellent. It’s not cheap, however these products tend to last a while. 

SOL DE JANEIRO Cheirosa Perfume Mists – I’m drawn to these based on reviews. I know how 62 smells, as I had a cream that to me smelled similar to The Body Shop Vanilla Pumpkin, but I’m not sure about the others. Reviews are excellent and I believe they might be comparable to my precious BBW mists.
