Too Faced Natural Matte Eyeshadow Palette – Review

Hello Loves and happy Monday!

Today I would like to talk about my newest beauty purchase I made.

Few years ago I got my hands on Urban Decay Naked 2 palette which I was super faithful to for years. That time I wasn’t much into makeup as I’m now. I used to have just a few, very classic, popular and “safe” products and didn’t really experiment with new releases.

Gradually I’ve started to purchase more makeup products out of curiosity or simply to find the one (from every category of course :P). But since I had my Naked 2 I felt like I didn’t need any other. I usually like muted tones for my eye look. When I go crazy I usually turn to black or dark brown.

Few weeks ago when I stopped wearing glasses (laser eye surgery) I started to experiment with my eye looks more. I felt the need of all matte palette. I went to Sephora and somehow I ended up straight in front Too Faced stand. And I saw it! This Natural Matte palette was everything! But I didn’t take it right away. I made this decision sink in more and just sleep on it. I was debating in my head if I should take Naked Ultimate Basics since I love Urban Decay eyeshadow formula.

Last week I decided to pick up my baby. Without doubt I decided on Too Faced. Eyeshadows seamed so velvety and the packaging is goals. I also wanted to try something new! So here it (for a better colors’ reference please click here)!

I have to say guys that I’m not disappointed at all! Shades blend beautifully! Each one matches each one and I just love that! They feel so effortless, but classy. You can’t really go wrong with choosing any shades and mix them together.

I highly recommend to anyone who’s just starting with makeup (inside there’s a booklet with 3 looks you can create) or just needs a good all matte shadow palette as I did! Good job Too Faced! I’m definitely coming back for more soon! 😉

August Favorites!

Hello Loves! Hope you’re having great Monday!

It’s almost the end of the month and Summer and I just can’t believe it! It’s makes me so sad! Summer is my favorite season and it always happens so fast! But the good news is with the end of this month also comes new post of my month’s favorites to share with you! Let’s take advantage of those last warm days and now go straight to the post!

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

The first fave item are those Topshop mom jeans I wore the hell out off since I got them! I was looking for a good mom fit a long time, but nothing I tried was a good fit. They were cut off in a wrong places, flattened my butt, looked weird in front or simply they were too buggy for my petite silhouette. These Topshop ones were on a big sale so I decided to risk it and order them online still being little skeptic how they will fit. But guys! They do and they are such a great fit! Love them so much! (with heels they look killer!)

Second favorite is my old fave Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara. Probably most of you, who are a little bit into makeup, heard about this mascara! So what more can I say? It’s the best one yet I’ve tried, very affordable and easily buildable without the unnatural effect (I’m not a fan of spider lushes). My always very safe go to product.

Third fave is my new Hoola Matte Bronzer by Benefit Cosmetics. I recently purchased it in Sephora. Finally! In a previous month’s favorites I’m gushing over Bronze Goddess by Esteé Lauder with never trying Hoola. Well, I did try it and it’s amazing! I have to say it’s not surprising to me anymore that so many people love this product! It’s so pigmented and flattering most of the skintones! It’s just gorgeous! I’m in love! ❤FullSizeRender

And last but not least is my fave fragrance atm! I’m just obsessed! If you want to find out why, just click HERE for a separate post I made about this baby!

July Favorites!

Hello Loves and happy Monday!

This month I loved the most those 4 items I’m gonna share with you! Three of them are makeup products perfect for the hot summer weather and for getting that bronzed no makeup look!

Let’s start with the bronzer!

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

This Estee Lauder Bronzer is the only bronzer I ever had purchased and used. But let me tell you. Oh boi! It’s a winner! It’s so natural and since now I’m more tanned than usual (read: tanned at all) it gives me that amazing summer bronzy glow and warmth. I love to use it everyday. You can get it in 4 different shades, I went for medium. Nowadays my morning routine consists only of Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream, some Sephora concealer for my purple undereyes, this bronzer and Benefit Ka-Brow! to give my brows more definition and I’m good to go! So minimal, but I feel great! I never felt so good while using so little makeup! This gorgeous bronzer really makes you feel like a bronze Goddess! And come on, the packaging is just goals! ❤

(I love this one a lot, but still need to try the classic of the classics Benefit Hoola! Have you tried it yourself?)

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

Second fave that I already mentioned is Ka-Brow! by Benefit. I was looking for something that could define my brows a little bit more than brow mascara I use everyday from NYX. This product gives me everything I always was looking for. I don’t like brow pencils anymore because I get through them way to fast. With this, I feel like it’s gonna last me a decent amount of time and it has a super-duper cute tiny brush to go with it. What more a girl can wish for from a brow product?

With this NYX Setting Spray I can really see the difference with how my makeup stays on the whole day. I use it on days that I know I’ll be spending out or for a special events. Before I was using it everyday instead of powder, but I’ve learnt it can make my skin a little dry, so I just prefer to go with a translucent powder and touch up my makeup if necessary. The price is very good for the quality. Definitely gonna go for a second bottle when this one finishes.

Do you have your favorite setting spray? Please, tell me in the comments! I’d love to try something new!

Last favorite of this month are my new Steve Madden stilettos! I got them as a gift from my boyfriend and I love them so so much! I’m not used to such a high heel (12 cm/4.7 inches) and I couldn’t save my live by walking in them, but I’m trying! I put them on almost everyday and just practise while cleaning the house or cooking. I can already catch my balance so… haha! Those shoes are very comfortable considering their hight and shape but are definitely not shoes made for walking. Or at least a lot of walking. Who is super brave and strong (and my role model) and walks in these kind of shoes without problem?? I want to salute you!

1000 Followers Q&A

Hello loves!

Sorry for missing two Mondays, but I didn’t have enough of time before I left for my holidays to schedule blog posts. But I’m back! Happy, rested and tanned! Because of that I post exceptionally today.

I collected all your questions from the thank you post after hitting a huge milestone! 1000 followers (now actually already 1228)! Thank you so much! ❤

How often did you post when you started the blog and what kept you motivated? 

First I posted once per week. Different days. I tried to see which day suits me the best and is the most comfortable for me to post on. I chose to post on Mondays. Then I tried to post twice a week (Mondays and Thursdays), which with my academy and work schedule was super hard so I switched back to posting only on Mondays.

What kept me motivated I think was that I truly enjoy to do it, so it was simply a getaway from work/home stuff.

How did you get into blogging? And what are you aspirations for the future? (Blogging wise or personal)

I was looking for another getaway beside making art and music from everyday life. I was very, very hesitant to start my blog. Whom for I’ll be doing it? Will people like to read it? I finally decided to do it for myself and I didn’t want anyone to know about it. Till today nobody from my family and friends knows that I have a blog. I never imagined my blog will be taken so well by you loves. I can’t believe you really enjoy it! I’m very grateful.

Aspirations? Let’s see when it will all take me. I’m gonna keep doing what I love and write more post, trying to still improving in every aspect of blogging. Hopefully I’ll make myself do more fashion/outfits posts and maybe some makeup tutorials that will include more me in pictures. It’s just I’m too camera shy. I have a lot of insecurities and it’s really hard for me. But let’s say that that is my goal for now. 🙂

If you could go anywhere for a dream vacation, where would you go?

New York or Aruba!

Pizza or pasta?

Pasta!

What is your favourite scent?

I love Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum the most in the world! It’s 100% my scent. I use them everyday for a good 7 years! I could say it’s my signature scent now. Haha. But I have to admit recently I fell in love with a Bombshell Eau de Parfum from Victoria’s Secret. I just got a bottle and it smells like summer! Love it!

 If you were to get a tattoo, what would it be?

I already have a tattoo! I wrote a blog post about the whole story of me getting it. Although I want a second one already! Definitely it will be something about NYC. I was thinking just about tiny letters.

Who is your celebrity style inspiration?

I have a lot! I love Gigi Hadid and bloggers Samantha Maria and my girl Maffashion.

If you were a superhero, what would your name and power be?

Name? Idk! haha, but my power will definitely be teleporting!

Sephora Face Masks review

Hi Loves and happy Monday!

For today’s post I prepared a review of two Sephora Masks. One is a full face rose mask and second one is just a charcoal nose strip.

On Saturday I decided to pumper myself and use the full face rose mask ($6). It is supposed to brighten and moisturize your skin. I kept it on, as it said on the packaging, for 15 mins and have to say the whole process was really relaxing and felt very luxurious (I’m not used to do masks often as you can tell). After those 15 minutes I took it off and instantly felt refreshed. I massaged any leftovers of the mask into my skin. Honestly, I could feel that mask helped me with moisturizing my face more than I could see it. So visually I didn’t see much difference. Although my skin felt great! Did it brighten my complexion? I don’t think so. If so, then very slightly.

The nose strip I used on my boyfriend because he was asking me if I have this super famous black peel off mask, which I didn’t. I offered him this Sephora one and he was quite pleased with the result. Before using it don’t forget to read the instructions! I didn’t pay attention that nose, beside being clean, should also be damp. But after all, with a little help of wet towel, it got stuck to my love’s nose and worked as promised. Results were ok, without revelation. I think you could find something better for that price ($3).

Will I use this again? The nose strip – I don’t think that I’ll bother with it. The rose face mask – Maybe yes, before important event or just to pamper and spoil myself a little bit!

Did you use some of Sephora masks? Which ones? Did you like them or not? Share below! I’d love to hear about your masks experiences!

P.S. Keep your eyes peeled on the next post! It will be my June favourites!
