Naughty and Pink!

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.

This review is on the Essence colour and go nail polish in 107 Naughty and Pink!
They hold more product now, (8ml vs 5ml) and the packaging is more appealing.  They have reformulated the formula so now it claims to have a gel-like finish without the need for a top coat.



They have kept the old shades,  and launched new ones too.


I personally LOVE the new packaging! It's far more appealing  and it's still quite tiny if you like to carry nail polishes in your bag.



The fact that it has more product doesn't really affect me  because I hardly ever manage to use the whole nail polish before it dries up. 

As for the formula.  It's basically the same.  I must admit it dries a bit faster than it used to.  and seems to be glossier.


As for colour payoff,  it varies from one nail polish to …

Essence lash and brow gel mascara | review w/ swatches!

Image
HELLO GUYS!
If there is one thing I love to review it's reviewing products I love and gladly repurchase.. keep back ups of, and freak out if I'm running out.
Today's review is about the Essence lash and brow gel mascara.
I love to set my brows with clear mascara, I've been doing it for years and it helps keeps brows in place. I don't have unruly brows, really – but I love how they stay put all day with clear mascara. I don't like to apply clear mascara on my lashes, I like to apply pitch black mascara on my lashes.



Some additional info:
PACKAGING: Very sleek, words do not fade over time and I haven't had any issues with the sifter or the packaging overall. One thing you have to keep in mind, is that this product will look yucky over time when paired with other products. And it's normal, the clear product will become slightly tinted because it mixes with your eyebrow products.



WAND Quite small, but I love the size.


OTHER: I use…

Catrice 2 in 1 Evolution to Revolution 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.


This is a new mascara from Catrice it will become available in a few weeks now,  and I'm going to tell you how it performs in this review,  as an exclusive look for you all.




PACKAGING
Sleek and nice,
It has two different parts where you can scroll the wand out. It's the same brush, different sifter.
I have had no problems whatsoever when it comes to the packaging..






WAND
Same wand, different sifter.  The actual wand is quite natural. 


SHADE OF BLACK
A normal shade of black






LENGTHENING
Wand 1 - YES Wand 2 - A little


VOLUMISING
Wand 1 - No
Wand 2 - A little, but weighs lashes down.




OVERALL PERFORMANCE
I much prefer to use wand 1 (surprisingly).  So far, I found that wand 2 simply weighs down the lashes and provides so…

LIPSTICK DIARIES #16 | Palladio Creme Cocoa !

Image
HELLO GUYS! I've started another series.  It's like a FOTD ordeal but with a twist. As you might know I'm a lipstick fanatic. I'm quite the collector,  and out of all my makeup products,  my lipstick collection is by far my favourite.  So I decided to start this LIPSTICK DIARIES,  in which I will be featuring a FOTD every single day featuring a different lipstick every time. This series of posts will stop when I run out of lipsticks.  For lipsticks that I cannot work on their own,  I will be pairing them with other products,  but I will try my best to display the lipsticks on their own.  In this look I used Palladio's herbal lip slix in Creme Cocoa.  The texture seems like a sheer lipstick with a strong gloss.  Very moisturising,  a beautiful colour (I read it's a dupe to MAC's Freckletone lipstick). I paired this lipstick with a beautiful layered smokey eye. I hope you like it !

In this look I used Catrice ultimate colour lipstick in Princess Peach  This is one of my favourite lipsticks,  and I believe it's a must have if you have a warm skintone and like peaches / oranges combos. 

I paired the look with some winged eyeliner and neutral colours,  I hope you like it !

I paired the look with a smokey eye,  and I quite like it actually.
I hope you like it guys!

I paired this with a smokey eye and the lipstick adds a pop of colour.  I think you'd love this lipstick if you ha…
