Kiko Sales Haul-Lips

Kiko-Lips-Makeup

Part 1 is here! Let me introduce you with all the lovely bits I found on Kiko sale. As there were quite a lot of makeup products, I decided to separate this haul in 2 parts. I didn’t even realise I ordered so many lip products and actually that was a brave decision, as I was not able to see the items in real life, but I am very happy how this all has turned out, so enjoy!

I will try to put links below all the pictures, so if you like to feel free to check an item you are interested out and I promise Kiko doesn’t sponsors me at all, it is just my infinite love to this brand and I want to introduce all the world with their amazing products.

P.S. I already made an unboxing video, but I just love to take picture of makeup products. I know there is such profession as food stylist, can I be a makeup stylist? I have finally found my passion, hah.

Kiko-Temptress-Lip-Set

Temptress Lip Set

“Temptress Lipstick covers the lips with a thin coat of rich, bright colour. The light, creamy texture easily glides on the lips. Applying the lipstick is a sensory experience, a caress for your lips. The lipstick’s original square end adds elegance and refinement.”

This set is from Kiko “Cosmic Starlets” collection and, first, I must say that I absolutely love the packaging of this set. The colour is a bit different than I imagined and I think it would suit better to people with warmer undertones than to ones with cooler. Sadly, right now I can’t really pull this colour off as I am super pale and pink, but I am looking forward summer when my skin, hopefully, will be a bit darker and I will be able to wear this amazing colour. I prefer the lipstick over the lip pencil as I am a bigger fan to pencils you are able to sharpen, but overall I really like this set, though, sadly, there were no other colours left on stock as I would prefer to buy red or pink.

Intensely Lavish Lipstick

“Creamy lipstick with an intense and bright colour. The formula contains orchid extract, corn oil and gotu kola. When smoothed on, the texture transforms into a liquid that coats the lips in an intense and ultra-shiny colour.”

OMG, let me tell you how amazing this lipstick is. No doubt, this is my favourite product from all I have ordered. The colour is a bit metallic, which I actually didn’t wait for and it glides on  very smooth. It lasts on lips for a good amount of time and as this lipstick costs less than 4 euros, I think you won’t find anything similar to this in other shops. My top product on this haul, for sure.

Vivid Colour Lipstick Pencil

“Colourful, bold lipstick pencil. The creamy, ultra-light texture and bright, long-lasting finish create sensual lips. The practical pencil shape is ideal for quick touch-ups throughout the day.”

I haven’t yet had an opportunity to use these lipstick pencils properly, but I have done swatches on my hand and as far as for the first impressions, I agree they would work great for a quick touch-up throughout the day. These pencils are very creamy, therefor I don’t really think they would be long-lasting on lips. I am a bit upset I ordered the orange one because my skin is very pink and it is much harder to wear orangey, coral or different these kind of colours, but I am very excited to try the second lip pencil out.

Kiko-Smart-Lip-PencilKiko-Smart-Lip-Pencils

Smart Lip Pencil

“Creamy and blendable wooden lip pencil. The intense, high-coverage line adheres perfectly to the lips from the first application with a no-transfer, smudge-proof hold.”

Previously, I have tried Kiko precision lip pencils, but as I don’t see them anymore on their website, I decided to try smart lip pencils out. I have found that it is very easy to draw a line on your lips with these pencils, as well as the colour stays for a long time and and is very smooth. I have liked these pencils a lot so far, though I still prefer my Kiko precision lip pencils as they are a bit creamier. If you have ever imagined, what has happened with the orange pencil, I already dropped it face down on the floor, and as Murphy always knows it better, by no chance I would have dropped it down not on the top part.

Important things to remember during winter

4 Easy Winter Beauty And Skincare Tips

Important things to remember during winterIt was freez-z-zing right here in my hometown just before a few weeks, right now the “situation” is better but still your skin requires different protection during the cold months, and that is why I made you a list of things, I try to take in consideration to be able to go though the cold winter months. :)

1. Always wear a hat and keep all your hair in it

This might sound a bit strange or might confuse you a bit but this tip is very useful for girls with long hair. During the cold weather hair tend to break more and in oder to prevent this, be sure to always wear a hat during the cold weather and keep all of your hair in it. I know that sometimes hats can be a bit annoying and they might ruin your hairstyle within 5 minutes, but these days there are so many beautiful types of hats, that anyone can easily find the model which suits them the best.

1. Have a lip balm on your lips everywhere and anywhere

Oh boy, what a wonders these little things can do. Take your neutrogena, eos or pawpaw and your lips won’t make you feel uncomfortable about them being dry or patch ever again. Especially I am loving pawpaw thing (which might not even be a lipbalm), because of how versatile this product is. I don’t use it only on my lips but also as an eyebrow gel. Sometimes I might not be very good at remembering to apply this wonder product on everyday basis, but in the evenings I can’t go to sleep without a bit of pawpaw on my lips.

2. Hand cream and mittens

Winter and naked skin are the biggest enemies and while you can’t cover your face skin  not to look like a burglar during the cold winds, protecting the skin of your hand is much easier. Always remember to take gloves or mittens with you when going outside, as well as applying a hand cream during the day, I personally like the best to apply my hand cream on the evenings, as I feel my hands are able to absorb it the best during nighttime, but you can apply your hand cream whenever you feel the need to do that or remember about it and I swear your hands will thank you.

4. Moisturiser

I am sure all of you beautiful ladies right there apply your moisturiser no matter winter, summer, cold or hot, but during the cold months our skin requires different protection than in summer, so the moisturiser you use in winter should be thicker than the one you use in other seasons, but at the same time always remember to use moisturiser designed especially for your skin type.

Curling Iron Remington Ci5338 Pro Big Curl Review

Since I remember myself I have always been in love with hairstyles and hair in general. I don’t really consider myself a long hair girl, because as I am sure you all girls right there know, hair can never be too long, but curling my hair has always been a big problem. I am not entirely sure whether the problem has been with all my curling irons or with my disobedient hands and hair styling technique, curls in my hair disappear within an hour. Well, from now on, it will be different. Let me introduce you to Curling Iron “Remington Ci5338 Pro Big Curl”, the first thing in my life, which not entirely has solved the problem, but at least had helped me to finally curl some tufts of hair.

The thing I love the most about this curling iron is the perimeter it has. Finally I can wrap all the tuft of the hair around it and every part is curled evenly. The second thing I love is that temperature for this hair curler is variable, thus I don’t need to think all the time how the heat is damaging my hair.

Overall, I love this product, actually I am quite sure that every curling iron with wider curling part would do the curling job better than my previous irons, but as this exact iron was the first one I have tried with wider curling part, I love it and don’t think I will try to find something similar in the nearest future.

Remington, good job!

The Body Shop Banana Shampoo And Conditioner Review

 

Banana Shampoo Body Shop

Bananas on product bottle

Banana shampoo // Banana conditioner

Ring-ring-ring-ring-ring, banana phone? Nope, this time we have something better! Today I unfortunately have no banana phone with me, but something else very delicious (not really, though), good smelling and very sunny to share with you. The Body Shop banana shampoo and conditioner, in my opinion, are very popular products from this brand, however only this month I got my hands on these two sunny bottles and will share with you my thoughts about them.

—–

The Body Shop banana shampoo and conditioner are the very first hair products I have tried from this brand. In my opinion, bottles of the banana shampoo and conditioner look very beautiful and they might brighten your day, no matter you are young or old, man or woman. You might not agree with me, however don’t argue with me as I am saying this from my personal experience.

I had to wait some time to use my new “bananiis”, as I already had full bottles of other hair products to use before these lovelies, however when the queue for them finally came, I tried my best to take the most out of them.

First, let’s start with the banana shampoo. Not only the shampoo smells very tasty, but it also leaves my hair soft and shiny for days. It cleanses the scalp very good and makes my hair feel very soft.

Speaking about the conditioner, this is a must product to get the best experience when using the The Body Shop banana line products. I feel the conditioner is the one, which truly makes your hair super shiny and soft, as well as makes your hair smell amazing for days.

The scent of these products might not be for everyone, as some might find it too strong and overwhelming, nonetheless I have found that mashed bananas taste and smell exactly like the scent of these products, and if you are ok with it, I encourage you to try “bananiis” out. Banana power, banana!

3 Things You Should Know About Underwater Massage

 

wp-image-461961988jpg.jpg

Hey, today was all about new experiences, I had my first underwater massage session! I don’t know, how familiar you are with this thing, but to be honest, I didn’t know almost anything about them. My mom got a gift card for underwater massage session last Christmas, but as she wasn’t able to use it, I had this great opportunity today.

If any of you plan to try this kind of massage anytime soon or want to find out more about them, I think these are the 3 things you should definitely know about underwater massage.

  1. Underwater massage can help to fight against cellulite, improve your blood and lymph circulation and enhance the health of your skin – One time won’t be enough to see any of those body improvements, however doing this a dozen of time before bikini season, can totally help you to get the body you would be proud to show other on the beach.
  2. Underwater massage can hurt -Yup, it is a massage and massages are all about relaxation, but as in underwater massage the massage effect is achieved by very strong water jet, you might not find it as the most relaxing massage.
  3. Underwater massage can make you sleepy and tired – There should be a reason, why it is said that these sessions might help to fight against insomnia, because even though, I had my massage this afternoon I am feeling very tired all this evening, so I suggest to book your session on the second part of the day, as it might be hard to concentrate and have a ton of energy for further work/studies.

Final thoughts. I really enjoyed this beauty procedure today, even after a session, I can tell that my body is feeling better. I definitely encourage also you to try underwater massage out, if you have any interest and are curious, you won’t regret it, trust me!
