They're all going to be smaller than the one I have now,  because it's a bit too much for a banner I guess.  So size-wise they're all equal :D

HAUL!! Sleek Limited Edition Avoir La Peche Collection Blush and Pout Polish !!

Image
Hello girls!!!
This is the last "haul" post for today. It was a very productive day for me today.  I don't think I ever posted 5 posts in a day.  It really is quite exhausting.  But I HAVE to somehow cut down the number of posts I have to do.. 
I have been trying soooo many products  and I have so many reviews I have to do.  As some of you may know,  I'm doing my exams which doesn't make it any easier for me one bit. 
Just imagine.  Between July the 1st and July the 3rd I'm going to finish four exams. And I have 8 exams in total and 6 assignments.  Out of the assignments I finished just 1.  So yeah it is very hard for me to keep up with my blog and my studies.  This night I literally did not sleep.  I didn't even go to bed.  Because I have to focus and do something.  And my production mode is during night time. 


Anyway, on to the haul... sooo. SLEEK have launched their collection: AVOIR LA PECHE a while ago.  I'm a fan of peaches, corals, oranges and those kind of summer…

ELF HAUL!!!! - Hello. I'm Dyna. And I'm an ELFaholic. :]

Image
Hello ladies =D 
I have received an ELF package.. like a week and a half ago.  I know, I know, I shold have posted this before  *slaps herself on the wrist*. 
But I have sooo many posts to post.  Reviews to review. and most of all.  Studying that has to be done :(
Soooo... what did I get from ELF cosmetics UK this time??

I got:  ELF's regular line matte finisher nail polish ELF's regular line nail polish in mango madness ELF's regular line nail polish in smokey brown ELF's regular line liquid eyeliner in black ELF's regular line therapeutic conditioning lip balm in blackberry crème ELF's studio line cream eyeliner in coffee


and this is my initial reaction to them:
ELF's regular line matte finisher nail polish I used this on ELF's mango madness, but I don't think it's the right shade to use with. I don't know. I'm not loving the matte nail polish look. But then again it just might grow on me. Any tips? Do you think it would work better on nudes or pastel…

The awesomest "birthday" package from NYX!!! A $112 value!!!

Image
Hello girls!!! - just to change a little bit you know,  I'm assuming you're all girls. 
But if not. Hello guys. xD Actually I sound sexist now. 
Hello people!!! haha yup that ought to do it. 
Ok so nevermind. 
If you have read my post over HERE you'd know that I was contacted by NYX and as a thank you for all of my reviews and stuff that I have posted,  they decided to send me some stuff.  Apart from the stuff they decided to send over, they also allowed me to choose a couple of items of my choice!!
Aren't I spoiled or what?? They did not ask for reviews or anything..  they literally wanted to give them to me as a "thank you".  Awhhh. xD I'm actually seriously honored that a company like NYX acknowledges my blog.  I mean, technically speaking,  I don't own the most famous blog out there.. I don't have the largest number of followers. So in companies' eyes.. they can find a whole lot better PR for their product.  It's THEIR loss hunny.  THEIR loss.  haha. Just kid…

HAUL!! Wet n Wild's brulee eyeshadow and Mega Volume Mascara !!

Image
Hello guys!!
As you might have read if you "like" my facebook fan page,  I have a total of four posts for today all are going to be "haul" posts.  I simply cannot postpone my posts any further, regardless of the exam period. 

Anywhooooooo.. If you have a second I'd really appreciate you answering my question on my facebook fan page about what you would like to see on my blog, and if you hit the "like" button I'll promise to spam you with beauty codes, scoop about my blog and links to stuff I believe you'd be interested in :). 
Haha. 



Anywhoo. I have been eyeing Wet n Wild stuff ever since I starting watching youtube videos, seeing blogs etc etc. I think it's such a hugely successful company with awesome products, it should be international. 
Anyway. I have heard on multiple blog posts and even on youtube,  that the wet n wild color icon single eyeshadow in brulee is a dupe to MAC's eyeshadow in brule.  Soo this was an "I-had-to-have-it&quo…

Sigma in the mail baby !!! Sigma Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki Brush F80 !!

Image
Hey guys,  I litterally have not gone to bed last night ..
I was up studying. I bet you thought I was out partying for a second!!
Right? Right?!
No? .. Oh, well .. didn't work this time.
I'll get you next time.
Please bear with me while I knock type some sense into me haha.



Anyway..



Today's post is going to be about a brush I received from Sigma Beauty as part of the Affiliate Program :) 
I have been eyeing Sigma for quite a while and the affiliate program, and like a month ago I decided to just do it.  As I said in my previous post, I would never sabotage the trust that I have earned for some free product or money [I don't accept compensation for a review anyway]. 



Anywho.. I got the opportunity to try out the Sigma F80 brush which is, I believe, one of the most raved about brushes from Sigma. 
It is one of the trio Sigmax brush set and youtubers like Holly Annaree [whose opinion I trust a 100%] have raved about it. 
So I was super excited when I found out I'm gonna get…

Beauty Spotlight & Beauty Fail of the week!! WEEK #2

Image
Hey guys, I adore favourite posts and all that.  I also love it when blogs "trash" products that really deserve to be trashed. 
I'm going to do this kind of post once every week.  I'm not going to promise a"day of the week"  Because I'm not THAT organised. 
And besides. I don't want to this post by force.  Because I find that some blogs tend to do that.. 
I just personally find it something "programmed" rather than real.  As with my favourites of the month,  I may delay the post and twist it the way I want to..  in the sense that.. I will not "schedule" anything.  I'll just surprise you. 
Yup. I'm a creepy blogger. 
SOOOOO..
I'm going to start with the BAD.  and let's call this a "BEAUTY FAIL"!
 LUSH flying fox temple balm UGH.. I rarely ever throw a product out..  and I did try to use it like 2-3 times at home. But I just can't stand the smell.  It's H.O.R.R.I.B.L.E.  EWW.  Sorry, I have no good things to …

Hello guys xD

ELF regular lipstick in seductive vs mineral lipstick in party pink swatch comparisons!!

Image
Hello guys,  Today I don't have that much time to write a lengthy review ... so I got a post with swatch comparisons for  ELF regular lipstick in seductive,  ELF regular lipstick in seductive in combo with ELF mineral lipstick in natural nymph  and  ELF mineral lipstick in party pink.

 I used to love using ELF regular lipstick in seductive in combo with ELF mineral lipstick in natural nymph, it sort of makes it more rosy looking and I have received compliments over this :)) My ELF seductive lipstick broke, I didn't bother fixing it so I don't really wear this combo anymore :)
If you're looking for a pin up reddish rosy pink shade, ELF regular lipstick in seductive might be the shade for you. I personally don't like the red tint, so I hardly ever wore it.
ELF regular lipstick can be applied sheer and it acts as a kind of stain this way :)))
ELF mineral lipstick in party pink is my favourite out of these four lip shades / combo :)) It's a corally tinted pink. This is …

FOTD: a clean polished look :)) + random ramble #

Hello guys :D :D  As you probably know - or probably not - I have my exams in less than a week.  8 exams, that is, and 6 bloody assignments.

Nevermind.  So yesterday I had my brithday.  It was a really cute birthday. Loved it from beginning to end.  I did my driving theory test.  And guess what? Got full marks *flips her hair* hahaha. Soo happy... :D  That was my "best" birthday present to be honest. 
But hold up.  I got more... !! Remember I told you NYX cosmetics had contacted me to send me some stuff ??  It arrived yesterday!!!!!  WOOOOAHHH!!!
But I'll do a full blog post on that..  so you can check out the products for yourself :))) I'll also do reviews and stu…

TOP 5 ELF face products!!

Image
Hello guys.. xD I have so many things on my mind..  I literally can't wait till my exams are over..  and probably I'm going to spend the eve and night of my birthday  awake sorting out school stuff.  Oh the joys and the stupidness of school -.- Nevermind..  I swore I'll make a blog post today. So I'm going to xD
I thought I'd share my TOP 5 ELF face products from the mineral / studio / essential or regular line :D

ELF tinted moisturiser spf 15 I adoooore this little bundle of joys. They are sample size so you don't have to worry about wasting a ton of product if you happen to buy the wrong shade. They are moisturising, gives me a very sheer coverage and boosts my complexion.



ELF mineral booster in tinted I love this for setting my face make up.. it is a very flash friendly product and is very smooth and gentle. It is mineral - and that's always a plus xD

ELF healthy glow bronzing powder in luminance I adoreeee this highlighting powder. I have had this for quite a while.…

Dear – Not so secret – Diary.. #3

Image
Hello guys,  it's 3.27am on my clock ..  and I'm still very much awake.  xD Anyways.. there are five things currently on my mind xD
1. I literally stayed up all night last night.. Assignmenting.. sorting out school stuff and all that. 
2. I probably had 10- 15 cups of coffee in my system and I'm probably going to sleep on the bus. Haha.
3. I have my birthday soon. This Wednesday actually. And not too keen about it. The nearer the birthday, the nearer the exams. Grr. I'm a little stressed out actually.. and as you can see this is a bit negative post. Please bare in mind I have not had my beauty sleep and I look like Fester from Adam's Family. HAHAHA.
4. I just HAVE to get my bloody theory driving test over with. I started studying at one point but keep postponing the bloody exam. And I need the bloody car. I HATE buses and all that.
5. Next Saturday we have a Referendum in Malta in favour or against divorce.. and I am FED UP of hearing about it. Malta is “essentially” Cath…
