Korres Wild Rose + Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial – Sephora Birthday Haul

1

Loves, this “Sephora bd haul” series I’d like to dedicate to all the stuff I recently got in Sephora as a gift for myself. As my birthday is quickly approaching I wanted to treat myself and let myself a little loose in the make up and skincare wonderland. In each post I’ll review one of the products I got.

I usually try to look for any discounts when I’m going to buy something more luxurious (read: not drugstore makeup and skincare products). Luckily in the prefect time I got an email that this week I can get 20% off everything with my black Sephora card. Well, you could only imagine how happy and excited I was!


 

Korres Wild Rose + Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial

6

For a long time I was searching for a perfect moisturizer. Mostly I was using the ones that my dermatologist suggested for my skin. Usually it was something from La Roche Posay brand since I had some brake outs on my skin. Then it started to get better but also I felt like it got drier and drier. Nothing, even Physiogel wasn’t enough to nourish and moisturize my skin. Then I tried CLINIQUE Moisture Surge Intense For Very Dry To Dry Combination Skin because I really loved the sample I once got. First I felt it was helping but after some time my skin didn’t feel much different.

Then I went for my BD Sephora splurge and one of the lovely ladies working there shared her favourite moisturizer with me. I’ve heard a lot good things about Korres brand and always wanted to try it and when I finally try this mask on my hand I loved it! The subtle scent of rose and the creamy but very light formula got me from the start! The most amazing part of it is that it’s a night mask, but you just apply it as a normal moisturizer (so not too thick, it will still do its magic, believe me!) and sleep in it. Just after the first night I felt a huge difference with my skin! It felt super moisturized, fresh, soft and it was glowing! I could even see that few of my hyper pigmentations were gone! What also pursued me to buy this mask was the fact it’s mostly made from natural ingredients!

I really love it a lot and I’m so happy with it (as with my Dior Lip scrub!) Cannot recommend it enough!

Dior Lip Sugar Scrub – Sephora Birthday Haul 

Loves, this “Sephora bd haul” series I’d like to dedicate to all the stuff I recently got in Sephora as a gift for myself. As my birthday is quickly approaching I wanted to treat myself and let myself a little loose in the make up and skincare wonderland. In each post I’ll review one of the products I got.

I always used to look up the products that I’d like to try or do a little research before purchasing anything from a make up range. This time though I had only one product on mind that I knew I couldn’t leave the store without:

DIOR Lip Sugar Scrub, Sweet Exfoliating Balm

4

This lip scrub has been on my mind since the first time I saw it on Dior’s Instagram feed. The thought it would leave the lips with gorgeous pink shade after gently exfoliating it with its sweet sugary formula sounded more than perfect for me. Then I saw Sammi (my favourite youtuber/blogger whom I adore) saying she loves it and I knew I need it. NOW!

When I tried it I was in love! First I felt it was a little bit hard on my lips but as soon as the texture on top of the balm slightly dissolved it felt amazing. It really left my lips feeling super moisturised, nourished and beautifully pink! If you still not sure if to try it just look at the packaging! It feels so, so luxurious and it’s Dior!

I am really glad I got it because since the first use it instantly became my favourite lip balm/scrub!

I know it’s definitely on the pricey side of the lip balm range ($33 in Sephora), but if you feel like treating yourself and you were looking for a good product like this you won’t regret it!

Everyday beauty essentials

 

In this blog post I’d like to share with you all my beauty essentials I use daily. Having my little routine and using the same products each day helps me stay organised and definitely saves some time when I rush from the shower having 30 minutes to do my make up, hair and choose the right clothes.

Depending on my mood, sometimes I change the lip product, don’t use anything at all or just a simple lip balm. The look itself is very simple, looks fresh and natural.

It took me some time to build and complete my daily weekday make up routine. I was experimenting and switching the products pretty often. One day I noticed that I started to look for and grab the same products each day. And that how I discovered my natural makeup routine.

Everyday those 8 essentials help me feel fresh and glowing all day long and achieve that effortless and natural look in just few minutes.

BENEFIT POREfessional Face Primer 

I love this primer because it leaves my skin very smooth and silky and oil free for a long time! I can also see a big difference in appearance of my pores – they look way smaller. Definitely makes foundation stay longer too. I used to not use primers at all, but when i tried it and saw how big difference it makes I never looked back!

AA LUMI foundation (001 Ivory)

This foundation costs almost nothing and it lasts quite a long time! It gives my skin nice glow and looks very natural. You can also build it up, but it is light coverage.

NYX HD concealer

Sometimes I use it and sometimes not. Depending how tired I look. I use it under eyes and in places I want to brighten my complexion. I noticed that it dries pretty quickly and sometimes at the end of the day leaves those lines of built up product in under eye area. Although I find it as a very good coverage concealer that lasts decent amount of time.

VICHY Dermablend powder

Really good loose powder. It comes with a little sponge, but I prefer to use my brush. It sets my make up very well and it makes my skin matt without looking cakey.

TOO FACED Better Than Sex Mascara

I have waterproof version and believe me I cried so many times wearing it and nothing happened (not that I cry a lot)! It gives lashes gorgeous volume and length. I like to brush through my lashes after I put this mascara on for less dramatic look.

NYX Control Freak Eyebrow Gel

Perfect transparent eyebrow gel. Keeps brows in a desirable shape all day long! Nothing to add, just a great product!

NARS Blush in “Orgasm”

I was thinking for a long time about if to purchase this blush. I’ve heard a lot about it and all opinions were very positive. When I finally got it I just told myself : “It was so worth it!” Nars’s Orgasm is a natural, coral – pink shade with a little bit of golden shimmer. I think it is perfect for every skin tone. It is very pigmented and leaves the skin with very healthy, warm glow. I didn’t think that I would love it so much!

CLARINS Lipliner Pencil (02 nude beige)

I really like this lipliner the most for its colour and that it’s long-lasting! Sometimes I feel it can dry lips a little, but a simple lip balm usually does the trick.

CHANEL Coco Chanel Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum

And finally! Creme de la creme! Without using this perfume I never leave the house! It’s such a statement piece for me. Something about this scent it gives me a kick of confidence and makes me feel like myself in 100%. It’s a touch of luxury everyday. I found them, fell in love and I can’t imagine using any other sent!

With the combination of everyday dainty jewellery (including two rings and a necklace I never take off) this scent just put the look together and makes me ready for my day!
