HEY DOLLS!
I didn't realise I hadn't yet posted this review.  So I'm going to keep this quite nice and short for you.

HEY DOLLS!
I tend to post stuff on here a few weeks late, I got these items a few weeks ago and I haven't posted about these because I kind of forgot about this, and also I have been busy posting other reviews I have been meaning to post and FOTDs and all that.


My First Crappy OOTD video..

HELLO GUYS!

Ok, so this is my first OOTD. I wasn't even going to post this, but it's a start and I'd love to know what you think. Be honest and be nice, though :D

FOTN | the nuder the better!

HELLO GUYS!!

I have a FOTD today!.. well more of a FOTN because I wore this at nighttime.

I've been wearing winged liner and nude lips quite a lot recently,
I think it looks great and  it photographs brilliantly---

I have a slightly different post today.  Something that infuriates me, really. 
This particular man, an former MP who is often thought of highly in Malta has uttered these stupid statements below:

Ok just for fun  (because some people actually take these posts very seriously - it's meant to be fun, chill people!) Now these are things that have happened to me, YES.  I happen to be quite the loser/jerk-magnet.  And every now and then I meet someone  who's genuine,  But. there still are some things that would put any girl off 

Essence multi action false lashes mascara | review w/ swatches !

Image
HELLO GUYS!!


So, as you guys probably already know,
I am veerrry picky with my mascaras.


I'm a pain to please.


I have not yet found my HG mascara.
and I've been trying out quite a few mascaras ever since my mind flipped to Make Up Freak Mode.


I believe this mascara is getting discontinued  and I'm kind of disappointed about this,  because it's quite a good mascara it's a shame.  But I'll let you know all about it below :)





Two-toned lipstick?

Catrice nail lacquer in 875 It's all I can blue | review w/ swatches !

Image
HELLO GUYS!!
I have a nail swatch and review today :D If you've been following my blog for a while,  you'd know I've been really into Catrice cosmetics ever since their launch in February. I had already tried 2 of their nail polishes and I liked them.. As far as Catrice's nail polishes go,  they do not have the same consistency.  I think it's the same with all brands.

Essence colour & go nail polish in #110 Modern Romance [review w/ swatches !]

Image
HELLO GUYS! 
At the Bloggers' Event I was invited to  organised by PharmaMT (importers of Catrice and Essence) we were introduced to the NEW and improved packaging of Essence nail polishes.


Why I haven't been posting all that much..

If you have noticed a decline in my blogging and youtube activity,  it's because I have to tell you dolls something.  Due to personal reasons,  I will have  to restrain from the constant activity  on my blog, youtube channel and facebook posting.  Sometimes I sign up for too much and I end up feeling  like I have this endless to-do list which I can never keep up with.  Blogging has become almost like another job to me;  I love doing it - but it was never my intention to turn a hobby into something that I have to do.  So as from now on, I won't be blogging on a daily basis, only when I have time to do it. It's something I love doing, and there's no way I'm going to turn it into something I'd stress about. 
Sorry if I'm disappointing you,  but we all need a break from time to time, 
Lots of love, Dyna xx

7 Day Make-up Challenge | Day 7 [finally!]: DOLLHOUSE PINK

Image
HELLO GUYS!! I started a 7 day makeup challenge where I posted  different makeup looks,  now initially this was meant to be a 7 day challenge.. but I felt sick so I skipped like two days at the end. I have already done this thing before.. in fact you can CLICK HERE to check out what I came up with before.  I love doing this challenge because it allows me to get creative in the morning,  and see what I come up with. Sometimes it doesn't work, but sometimes I discover a new look I fall in love with too! Anyway here's DAY 7!! I went for some killer lashes, a ton of mascara and winged liner. Almost doll like eyes and pink lips :D
Love it!!

Essence volume boost big lashes waterproof mascara - blue tube [review with photos!]

Image
HELLO GUYS!!


So, as you guys probably already know,
I am veerrry picky with my mascaras.


I'm a pain to please.


I have not yet found my HG mascara.
and I've been trying out quite a few mascaras ever since my mind flipped to Make Up Freak Mode.


This is quite a rather new mascara
and I was very eager to try these out because they claim to give big lashes.
I'm talking about the Essence volume boost big lashes mascara,
in the blue tube.





Rihanna got a new tattoo | My thoughts !

Image
HELLO GUYS!
So Rihanna  recently got a new tattoo,  apparently as a memory of her grandma.  

But the first thing that comes to mind  (I know, I'm such a bad individual, you see)  is that in 30 years that Egyptian lady virtually in the middle of her breasts will be wingless. 
Other than that,  I love it! It's a piece of art.

7 Day Make-up Challenge | Day 6: Choco-holic!

Image
HELLO GUYS!! I have just started a 7 day makeup challenge where I will post every single day for 7 days each day with a different look. I have already done this thing before.. in fact you can CLICK HERE to check out what I came up with before.  This time round, I will try to come up with different looks than last time,  so that I won't repeat things on and on.  I love doing this challenge because it allows me to get creative in the morning,  and see what I come up with. Sometimes it doesn't work, but sometimes I discover a new look I fall in love with too!

For Day 6: I decided to opt for winged liner and nude lips!

Catrice nail lacquer LE Coolibri Collection CO4 Exotica | review w/ swatches !

HELLO GUYS!!
I have a nail swatch and review today :D If you've been following my blog for a while,  you'd know I've been really into Catrice cosmetics ever since their launch in February. I had already tried 2 of their nail polishes and I liked them.. As far as Catrice's nail polishes go,  they do not have the same consistency.  I think it's the same with all brands. 
But Catrice is different.  If a nail polish has a 2X sticker on it,  it meand that it is sheer.  So thankfully,  there is a good indication when it comes to pigmentation. 
Still - one nail polish varies from the next.  LE Coolibri Collection CO4 Exotica is nicely pigmented. I layered on two swipes, and I got the maximum payoff that way. The formula was not that quick drying, though.

I have just started a 7 day makeup challenge where I will post every single day for 7 days each day with a different look.
I have already done this think before.. in fact you can CLICK HERE to check out what I came up with before. 
This time round, I will try to come up with different looks than last time,  so that I won't repeat things on and on. 
I love doing this challenge because it allows me to get creative in the morning,  and see what I come up with. Sometimes it doesn't work, but sometimes I discover a new look I fall in love with too!
Anyway here's DAY 1!!
It's LINER DAY: focusing on a sharp winged liner, and the highlight of the look-  A pop of awesome teal colour on the outer 2/3 of the lower eyelid.  Nude lips balances out the colour on the eyes, and it makes the look almost timeless and vintage!
Love it!!

HELLO GUYS,
