Summer Look I ~ Yellow & Green

Hi my luvlies,
Sorry for not posting here for a long while now but I was very busy studying for my finals. 
This make-up look was made during my finals but I hadn't any chance of posting it.
It's an amazing look for summer especially if you love some pop of colour :)
Here is my first look I came out with using mainly my coastal scents 88 matte colour pallette.

I'm sorry but I forgot which other products or which main colours I used from the pallette.
Hope you enjoyed keep on watching for more summer looks :)
And enjoy Summer

Body Shop Make-up Brushes

As I mentioned before Body Shop is one of my top fave shops. 
And I have a good reason why :)
These are my Body Shop Make-up Brushes, they have been with me for around 5 years now and they're still rockin' haha.
So these were my first babies that I bought when I was getting into make-up ( I know you all remember that time when you would have survived with an eyeliner/mascara/lipgloss/sponge tip applicator and so on..)
woow thinking about it, that was so long ago
 ( you're thinking of your collection right now aren't you haha gotcha )

So back to the brushes, here in Malta there is no mac store ( I'm mentioning mac because when I was always surfing utube all the make-up gurus I watched where mac fanatics) so when  I was getting bored of the sponge tips and the applicators that came with the make up I realised that it was time for a mission to find some good make-up brushes. 

The magic happened when once I went into Body Shop to buy myself a new lip balm.
And there in the middle of the shop was this stand with brushes aaa I can't explain my excitement....
I ended buying all of the above, a sponge and an eyecurler which I forgot to add in this picture :/
I am going to show you close photos of these brushes individually, but I'll be reviewing one or two of them in a separate blog ( which I can't absolutely live without and yes my make up brushes collection has increased I own the complete set of sigma brushes)

So here is the eyeshadow brush

 it's flat with a round top it works well with pigments and to press on eyeshadow

Here is the blending brush if I remember well since the writing on the handle has faded away
It's dense with a round top
and quite flat from the sides this makes it the best blending brush because it's so precise..  

The Blush brush
I don't actually use it as a blush brush, but it works wonders to contour/bronze your cheekbones
It is also flatted out which makes applying bronzer accurately and dense to blend out.

The Powder Brush
It's quite dense and so so soft. It works for applying powder and even for blending bronzer all over the face
(the bits hanging out are my fault since I stored it incorrectly)

This is the comparison between the Body Shop powder blush on the right side and the Sigma powder brush F30

Thanks for watching :)

Home Fragrance - Incense sticks

As I have said before I love anything that has to do with a good smell, it varies from perfume to food to candles and so forth. So this Easter I received a gift , it's a pack full of different incense sticks as you can see below

The pack contains six different scented packs , 
Jasmine -Floral incense sticks
Lavender- Floral incense sticks

Violet - Floral incense sticks
Red Rose- Floral incense sticks
Sandalwood - Exotic incense sticks
White Mask - Floral incense sticks

Each pack has this package inside

which contains 20 incense sticks

So a little info on incense sticks:
  • Light the top part until strikes of smokes begin to come out
  • Put it somewhere upright, I like to insert the bottom part in a candle and my mum sometimes puts them in pot porri.
  • They are safer then candles since there is no flame.
  • it will instantly fragrant your home
  • Scent-wise it's much more powerful than any home fragrance spray, candle or oil even if not lit. It will scent all your home and I am not exaggerating. 
  • I don't recommend lighting it in a closed room especially your bedroom because of it's powerful smell becomes too over powering and unbearable especially for those who like me suffer from asthma and allergies.
Overall remark if you want to scent your house quickly but do not want it to vanish these are the perfect thing for your home and although the stick will burn out after 30 minutes the fragrance will remain and become subtle after time.

I hope you enjoyed this blog, if you have any questions feel free to ask :)

Accessories Haul :)

Here is an accessories haul I've done recently from two different shops.
I love accessories but my problem is I forget to wear them, either because I forget what I have or I wouldn't be able to find them. I went to Claire's and they have these lovely earring holders which where absolutely beautiful but I'm still trying to figure out how I'm going to organise all of my jewelry in one place so I did not buy them, but if you have any ideas or a blog on your collection please let me know :)

Here is what I bought from Claire's

And from another shop Shana which is a spanish line, my lovely boyfriend bought me these:

owl necklace

another necklace

 bag with long chain tucked inside

 & this pretty scarf with orcid prints

Fyrinnae Haul Part 1

A few weeks ago I ordered some pigment eyeshadows and a primer from Fyrinnae. This was my first order from them and I didn't even know the existed until I saw a post by the sweet Morena from the Daily Swatch which is found here. I think they only took a week to arrive here which is quiet fast.
The thing I loved most about this website is that you get the chance to order samples which is only $2. In fact I ordered 12 samples and also a sample of their primer which is supposed to make the colours and glitters pop more. I don't have anything negative to say about this company and I'm looking forward to order from them again. I almost forgot to mention that they sent me a free sample =)

So here they are I went a little crazy on the colours although I'm quiet a neutral colour lover but with all the colours they offer I promising you it will be very difficult for you to decide.






I'm going to post soon the other part of the haul 
thanks for watching :)
