Salon International Exhibition











As a hair and media makeup student I was offered to go to an exhibition called Salon International. It's an event where all the hairdressers (okay, not all, but most of the famous hairdressers such as Patric Cameron) gather to show people what's fashionable and popular at the moment. Also there is lots of hair products like high quality shampoos, conditioniers, nurising oils and so on. What is more, there were lots of hairdresser's professional scissors, hair extentions and other hairdresser's equipment. There you could even see your hair through a really powerful microscope and see how damaged your hair is! There was a big big queue so I didn't have a chance to see the condition of my hair. I'm not really interested in those hair thingies, but luckily I found a venue where all the makeup stuff were and then I felt blessed like never before... Haha. As you can tell all the things there very expensive and I didn't bring much money with me to buy everything I wanted, so I just had a look and a lot of things I'm going to buy on the internet website the companies have. It was really amazing and pleasant trip where I saw amazing shows and catwalks and had a look at those incredible catwalk models with perfect body and a flawless skin and everything... Things like this exhibition inspires me to try new things and don't be afraid of experimenting. 
Oh and I forgot to mention one thing... The people! Purple, pink, blue, green hair people with short black dresses and platform boots were the one more thing I admire the most. I just like the way they express themselves, the way they dress and style their hair. It's just something amazing! I'm thinking of dying my hair in the near future because I've got bored of my plain, blonde, natural hair and I want maybe something lylac or purple in my hair like dying the ends of my hair. Do you think it would look good? I think to dye with temporary tint which I can easily wash off in a few hair washes. I want to tint my hair, but I'm a bit afraid of the end result and if the color suits me.
So that's a recent update of my life and what's was going on lately. What are you guys up to?

Herbal Essences Shampoo and Conditionier


Lately I have been reading many reviews about this shampoo and conditionier so I thought why not give a try and find out if it's really as good as many bloggers have described. Accidentally, one day I was in a pound shop when I saw it and I had a little doubt if it's really good. I don't buy things like this in pound shop so I wasn't 100% sure about buying it. But you wouldn't ever know if you don't give it a try so I bought it and I was so so so happy that I decided to buy it! After shampooing my hair became so soft and the smell of tea tree ant mint remained until the next wash. I even had a few compliments that my hair smells really nice and a few questions what shampoo I'm using. Haha. Have you ever tried this shampoo and I would like to know if you are buying things from pound shop and what's your view about them. Let me know in the comments!

April Favourites ♥



It's been a while since I done a blog post. I don't know why, but I just haven't got an inspiration for writing. But today I thought of you guys and decided to write something. Then I realised that I have some stuff to share with you.
Recently I have spent a lot of money on not necesssary things, but I started to love some of them so much! They're Real mascara is my #1 in getting long lashes. As my lashes aren't long naturally I really care about their length and what mascara I use. Not every of my bought mascaras was good and some just made my lashes look short and very thick. That doesn't look so good on me I can say. I'm really picky in choosing mascara, but this benefit mascara is my all time favourite!
Next thing I really really love is Maybelline BB cream. It's my favourite BB cream so far and it has 2% Calicylic Acid which is so great in fight with pimples! Also it has SPF 15 so my skin is always protected in the sun especially now when sun is much more dangerous than it was in the winter. This cream covers my skin perfectly and covers all of the blackheads and redness so my skin looks more healthy and flawless.
As I bought one more thing from Essence I realised that I love this company so so much. One more thing that I got from Essence is a caring cream for face. It smells really nice and after I put it on my skin I feel fresh and revitalized. I usually use it before I put my foundation.
One more thing I love is Oriflame Lipgloss. This color is so nice and many of my friends says that this color really suits me.
So there are a few things that I've been loving so far. Let me know what is your this month favourite things in the comments.

Classic Red Lipstick




Not long ago I received a package from the post office. I ordered a red lipstick from site called aliexpress.com. This site is really similar to ebay, but I think it's not as popular as ebay is. So I received my lipstick and I want to share my thought on my lovely purchase. It's a gorgeous red lipstick from brand called Manshiu, I'm not sure if you have heard about it before because I haven't either. I payed about 2.5$ for it and I think that this price is too low because the quality of the lipstick is just amazing! It's a bit stiff and it's hard to apply on the lips, but I don't mind because after the few strokes my lips are covered in this beautiful red color perfectly! You can see in the photo me wearing this lipstick, but it looks much lightier that it is in a reality. The packaging says that it's moisturizing, but I'm not really sure for it so I'm wearing a lip balm underneath it, so it looks a bit shiny, but the lipstick is matte. All in all I like this lipstick a lot!

If you want me to do some kind of post just let me know in the comments! I will try my best to make all of you happy because I love you a lot!

My Most Loved Pencils


One of the most important thing in your makeup look is the eyes and eyebrows. When your eyes look fresh and awake they look more attractive. Eyes and brows are the most important for me so I bought a few pencils. Essesnce pencils are for eyes. The white pencil in shade 04 White is really great tool for brightening up your inner corners of your eyes. By doing that you will look more awake and fresh-looking. The consistence is really nice and creamy. It glides really well and it's is long lasting. The other Essence pencil is in shade 08 Teddy. It's a gorgous shimmery bronze color. I use it as an eyeshadow by blending it into my crease so it creates a really nice shaped eye. I don't use it everyday because I try to pick more neautral colors for my everyday makeup look. As it is a slight shimmery color I use it more for a special ocassions make up. By the way I used it for my makeup for NYE. Again it really pretty color and I love it so so much. Next I'm going to talk about eyebrow's pencils. Eyebrow is the main detail in your face. Have you ever seen a pictures of people without eyebrows? They look a bit weird and funny. Haha. So if you don't want to look like those people you should try to define your eyebrows with Avon pencil. It's a really great brown pencil to define and brighten your brows to make them look a lot prettier. The pencil is really soft and fills in the gaps perfectly. I recommend to use it everyday because the color of this pencil is neautral and not really bright, even while the packaging says that it's a dark brown color. The last one I got is The Body Shop one. I like this pencil a lot because you can use it either for eyes or eyebrows. I don't really like how that navy color looks on me when I do my eye makeup with it so I use it only for my eyebrows. It's not so soft and it glides a lot more difficult than the Avon one so it doesn't creates a bright looking eyebrows which can look really weird and funny. Go easy with eyebrows because unnatural-looking eyebrows are not really attractive (it's just me, I don't like bright eyebrows). So The Body Shop pencil is in shade 06 French Navy. Probably now you are thinking " Is she really uses navy pencil for her eyebrows?" Yes, I'm am! Haha. And you know what? That color isn't that navy that it looks at first. My eyebrows are naturally black or more greyish color so this pencil suits my brows perfectly and creates a full brows look. I love this pencil and I can say that this pencil is the most loved of all theese pencils. You can see how those colors look on the skin down below and tell me which one is your favourite!

Catrice Lip Products



Not long ago I've found an amazing lip pencil from Catrice. It's a lovely matte pink color pencil which is long lasting and waterproof. I really like this baby pink color it looks so pretty and cute on lips. It doesn't make my lips feel dry because it has kind a creamy consistence and it glides really easily on my lips. I'm getting obssesed with Catrice products, they are so high quality and the price of the products is really low!



Another great product from Catrice is this lip laquer. I haven't tried any lip laquers before I bought this. As the red lipstick doesn't suits me I bought this really cute pink color. Its consistence is really great, this laquer covers my lips perfectly just in few strokes. It has a slight shine and you can find a few glitters in it when you apply it on your lips. It smell really good, the smell reminds me of cookies and it is also a bit sweet so it doesn't last long on my lips because I can't help myself not to lick it. (what a stupid girl. haha). What is more those products mach each other and create a really good-looking lips for everyday or for special occasions. So all in all it's a perfect lip laquer for those who can't own high end products. The quality is combarable with high end products I think. 


If you have ever tried any of these products let me know what do think about them in the comments!

Catrice Lash Growth Serum




I've found this in drugstore and I just couldn't help myself not to buy it. As my lashes are very weak and short I wanted to give it a try and buy this lash growth serum. The package says that this serum makes lashes 25% longer and that this serum had been tested by 20 women and 80%of them agreed that their lashes appeard much longer after using this serum for 30 days. I have used it for almost a week and I can see the results! It surprises me alot because I wasn't sure if it can make my lashes longer, but it do! I don't know maybe I'm that person that believes everything what commercials says, but it really works for me. It has a really handy applicator just like an eyeliner tip and it's really good to apply. It is used like a liquid eyeliner, you put it near your lashes like you put your eyeliner and you are done. I can do a blog post on it later by knowing how my lashes grow. Have you ever tried something like this? Let me know in the comments!

Manhattan Trio Effect Blush






When I was getting ready with makeup for NYE I realised that I didn't have any highliters or blushes left in my makeup bag so I went shopping and I've found this amazing Trio Effect Blush. It's an amazing kit where you can find two blushes and a highliter. It can be used solo or mixed for extra effects. The consistence of powder is really amazing and it makes my face look so bright and fresh-looking. I don't really like the coral blush because it looks weird on me, but when I mix all the blushes and a highliter it makes such a gorgeous color! I was wearing it on NYE and it stayed in place all evening so now I can trust it and use it without fear. All kit is named Pink Cupcake so I think you can find it in every drugstore and try it as well. I'm really happy with my purchase and I highly recommend it for you. Have you ever tried this set or any cosmetics of that brand? Tell me what do you think about it! I really like to read your comments and I read every single one of them!
