Green Tea Polyphenols Hand Moisturiser | review w/ swatches !

Image
HELLO GUYS! So around a month and a half ago  Born Pretty Store contacted me to test some product on their website. They decided to send me a hand moisturiser.  And given that it's winter and my hand are dry like crazy this is a perfect time to review it.
I even have a coupon code for you all, so scroll down for that!









ABOUT THE PRODUCT  The product is thick and creamy, lovely texture.  Not greasy and absorbs rather easily.  It hydrates and moisturises,  and the scent is quite a nice fresh one but it's not strong or disturbing.  I like that it comes in a squeezy tube as it's more hygienic this way. 
BOTTOM LINE This is a nice hand moisturiser,  great is you suffer from super dry hands like myself.

You can get this from HERE. They have a ton of other nail, beauty and cosmetic stuff!
USE COUPON CODE: XDYW10 FOR 10% OFF!


I hope you like it and let me know what you think guys! - Dyna xxx

NYX matte lipstick in MLS09 Natural | review w/ swatches!

Image
HELLO GUYS! I had originally fell in love with the NYX matte lipstick, and I still am,  but then I decided to buy a couple more shades. 
I actually featured these in a video which you can check out below. 

Today I will be focusing on Natural



PACKAGING Sleek black packaging, with a see-through part.  Risky packaging, if I might say,  because packaging similar to this is quite hard to master.  It often looks cheap and unappealing.  But this one doesn't.


TEXTURE A silky-smoothe texture, that glides onto your lips like a dream.


PIGMENTATION VERY pigmented.  It might even stain your lips after some time.



SCENT No detectable scent.


FINISH Matte.  totally matte.  But not drying or anything.




LASTING POWER  Needs reapplying after several hours (around 5) but lasts a very long time. 
SHADE A nude pink mauve shade



BOTTOM LINE Even though I like the shade and formula, I don't find myself reaching for this,  it's definitely a nice colour for asian skintones, though.  It reminds me of NYX roun…

Essence colour & go nail polish in #107 Naughty and Pink! | 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.




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 another.  This one, 107 Naughty and Pink! only needed two coats for maximum col…
