Catrice Absolute Eye Colour Eyeshadow in 500 Hip Hop on the Tree Top [review w/ swatches!]

Image
HELLO GUYS!! I apologise for the overload of Catrice reviews lately..  but I've been trying a lot of their stuff  and I'm AMAZED by the quality of this brand..  they have some seriously great stuff..  The spotlight today is on the Absolute Eye Colour in 500 Hip Hop on the Tree Top



PACKAGING Sleek plastic packaging,  have not had any problems, and you can see the eyeshadows through it. Brilliant



TEXTURE Very creamy, can be slightly powdery,  texture in inconsistent throughout different shades. 


LASTING POWER They lasted all day without a base,  just a primer on me.



PIGMENTATION Seriously crazy pigmented


SHADES A matte deep dark forest green

APPLICATION I like to use this as a green smokey eye,  it compliments my brown eyes really nicely.


I used this in this look below:

BOTTOM LINE I seriously love this eyeshadow colour. I went crazy when I swatched the tester  and went crazier when I found it available.

I hope you liked this review guys,
till the n…

ELF £25 off haul! - and a terrible youtube thumbnail.

HEY DOLLS!

I have recently uploaded my ELF haul video - I got quite a few products and back ups from ELF I love ELF,  I have refrained from buying because I basically have everything I want, but since they issued the code and they had a few new products in stock  I figured I'd make my purchase :D

And here's what I got:



- Take care dolls  P.S. - I have 2 more posts coming today :)

PUPA nail polish in #729 | review w/ swatches !

Image
HEY GUYS! 
This is a long overdue post -  I will be reviewing a lovely Pupa Nail Polish.  Pupa Nail Polishes (at least from the ones I have seen) are very nicely pigmented and great quality. 





To be honest, I only used one swipe in the swatches.  This is the type of shade I'd wear on my toe nails because it's dark. 
In the photos with my awesome (NOT!) toenails the nail polish is over a week old! Yes!! 




Another great product from PUPA! 
Stay tuned for the next post dolls! - Dyna xxx


FTC Disclaimer: I didn't pay for the product. I got it for free from Pupa Milano Cosmetics Malta. I am not paid to do this post and I am not affiliated with any brand. Everything I said in this review is my personal opinion.

A product so yummy, you'd want to eat it up!

HEY DOLLS!
I don't often iclude bath stuff on my blog.  But what the heck, this product deserves a shout out.

So this is a review on the Camay Creme Delice berry bliss shower gel
So I first tried Camay shower gel (the "pink scented" one) when I got it for free with coke or something like that at our local supermarket.
So I was running out and I went to pick another up..  when something happened. 
I saw this light pink yummy looking one.  And even though I hate it when other people do it,  I slightly opened it and had a wiff. 






*BELLS RINGING*
My gosh - this stuff smells like Bubblegum!!
It's called Creme Delice  and I'm all into yummy scents,  if I could find a perfume that smells like bubblegum,  I'd wear it too!.. 
Anyway..  as a shower gel it doesn't do wonders..  it's lathers up quite nicely and does it job just right. But the smell..  ahh the smell!
I swear I want to eat it up. When I picked it up -  there was a 30% off code.  So that's nice,…

Break the rules! wear orange and bling teal !

HEY DOLLS!
Everyone kind of verges into wearing the same colours for fall ..  which are more warm colours .. and sometimes reflecting on the colour of leaves and all.  But fact is.  I'm not inspired by autumn colours  and I'm more inspired by spring / summer.  So why not wear colour at this time of year?
Here's what I came up with:









FACE Maybelline instant age rewind in light ELF pressed powder in caramel NYC bronzer in sunny NYX mosaic blush in highlight*
EYES TFSI Catrice made to stay longlasting eyeshadow in 080 Copper & Gabbana* Catrice absolute eye colour in 580 Carrots of the Caribbean* Catrice absolute eye colour in 080 Go! Charlie Brown Wet n Wild Color Icon single eyeshadow in brulee Essence mono eyeshadow in blockbuster Catrice precision eye pencil in Silver Stallone Catrice intensif eye eyeshadow in vanilla sky ride Catrice precision eye pencil in blackstreet boy Essence sun club 100% splash proof eyeliner pen in 01 ultra black* Essence longlasting eye pencil…

Heart to Heart: My insecurity

I love the sparkle you put in my eyes.

HEY DOLLS!
I'm not sure whether you've noticed my moaning on my facebook page -  you probably haven't - so I'll moan some more on here. 
So basically, there is some bug going round on blogger.. and it happened to fancy bothering 700 of my blog posts.  The blog posts are still there but the photos have misteriously disappeared. So I'm currently in the process of putting the blog posts back together. 
Anyway I didn't feel like doing that today so I will be uploading a FOTN today  ET VOILA!
 AND yes. The cheeky title is because I could see the fake glitter in one of the photos So I felt all cheesy and all.

HELLO GUYS! I thought this is something worth sharing.. and it's worth checking out!! This is a fundraising event in aid of Equal Partners Foundation, an NGO that works with children and youths with disabilities. There will be an artisan market showing off local talents and there will be performances by Claire Tonna and Bark Bark Disco, followed by DJ Nik Steele. There will also be a face painter and a juggler among other activities for the children present. There will be an entrance fee of 4 euro that will go to the foundation and children under 12 enter for free.

"Trends" I don't get.

HEY DOLLS!
I have more of a fun post today -   I'm going to talk about trends and habits I don't get.  You might disagree,  but this is my theory.



When I'm bored I wear electric blue lips.

Image
HEY DOLLS!
I was bored a few days ago and I felt like being creative..  it's very rare that this happens but I swear it's so fun.. 

Now I'll let you know on a little secret  -  I only put makeup on half my face.. not the other side. 
And I actually wasn't wearing all that much products. 

Catrice duo gel eyeliner brush [review with photos] !

Image
HI DOLLS!
I'm going to review the brand new [well not so brand new, now - but still] Catrice duo gel eyeliner brush..

I bought this brush on my first shopping spree at the Catrice stand.



So the brush overall is tiny.  It's great for travelling,  but I find that I don't reach for it often because it's close to invisible next to my other brushes.



Catrice nail lacquer LE Cruise Couture CO5 Nautica | 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.



What I wore - from head to toe | Wedding vows !

HEY DOLLS - 
I recently had a wedding (for the first time in ages) and of course - being the vain person that I am -  I took it as an excuse to get dressed up and wear stuff I hardly ever wear. 
So first of all I figured I'd show you the overall look: 
I wore: Silver clutch Evening Pink-Purple dress Silver Shoes

Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Palette VANITY [review, swatches and make up looks!!]

HELLO GUYS!!
As many of you know Wet n Wild is not a worldwide company..
 it's based in the US and barely anyone sells it online.  I did find it on ebay though so I got it off there. 
I'm a huge fan of Wet n Wild Mega Last Lip Colors, and single eyeshadows so I decided to try these out too. 
and here's what I think:
