Review: Tanya Burr Lip Gloss ♡

Hi lovelies! :)

It's not a secret that I love Tanya Burr and her amazing YouTube channel and if you haven't watched any for her videos yet, than I don't know what you're doing with your life :). She is my biggest inspiration and if I wasn't to scared I would be making Youtube videos like her as well (maybe on day, who knows ^.^).

She recently launched her makeup line (lip glosses and nail polish) and ofcourse I had to buy some of the products. Unfortunately Feelunique doesn't ship nail polish to Slovenia, so for now, there are only Tanya Burr lip glosses in my collection.

From the bottom: Picnic In The Park, Aurora, Vampire Kiss

These glosses are great! Creamy, not to sticky, well pigmented and they stay on for a very long time.

Picnic In The Park

Picnic In The Park is a nice everyday pink color, that's not to bright and I think it's just the right pink shade for someone who is usually wearing more neutral colors (that would be me :)).


Aurora

I can't function without a "your lips, but better" kind of color and Aurora is just that. It has some tiny shimmer, so if you're not a fan of shimmery lip glosses, than this one might not be for you, but I promise, you can't fell it on your lips, which is great! :)


Vampire Kiss

And for the days when I want to rock a bold lip color - Vampire Kiss. This one is a deep red (hence the name), but the thing I like the most is that it's buildable. So you can go for a subtle red (put a little bit of the gloss on, than blot with a tissue for a stained look) or go all out with an intense color.

Unfortunately my swatches aren't the best, but I promise you, these colors and lip glosses in general are amazing! And like a cherry on the top of a cake, they are affordable - 6,99 £ on Feelunique

Let me know what do you think of these colors in the comments and make sure you follow me on Bloglovin or any other social media. :) 

Love, T. ♡

Disappointing Products No. 1

Hi you lovely people! :)

I realised that all my posts until now were about things that I like and it seems like I love everything that I buy and that is not the case, so in today's post I'm going to tell you about some products that I've recently tried and didn't really like.



First Aid Beauty Detox Eye Roller


As long as I can remember I've had horrible dark circles, so when I discovered First Aid Beauty Detox Eye Roller, I was in heaven. But boy was I wrong. This product contains caffeine and claims to improve your under eye area (less baggy looking skin) and also making your dark circles less visible. I didn't notice any improvement, in fact, this irritated my eyes a lot, so I stopped using it. For the price of 24 $ for 8,5 ml I have to say I am very disappointed with it.


L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes Excess Mascara


When it comes to mascaras, I don't really care for lengthening ones that much, but I do love me some volumized eyelashes :). Afcourse, I was very excited when I saw this mascara in drugstores and my friend recommended it to me, so I went and grabbed one as well. This mascara is good at separating eyelashes, but I don't find it volumizing at all. It has a plastic wand and I think this is the reason why I don't like it. Plastic wands never work well for me, as I don't have a lot of eyelashes and they are short as well, so I end up looking like I literally have 10 eyelashes. I do think this one is an ok doubling mascara if you use it after a volumizing one, just to separate your lashes a bit.


L'Oreal Miss Manga Mascara


Unfortunatelly, L'Oreal is just not doing well in my books, which is a bummer, because I love the packaging of this mascara, but that's about it. I find this one too watery, my eyelashes stick together and when I try to separate them I only make a bigger mess. Everytime I give this one another try, I always end up disappointed, so I guess it's time for me to stop using it.

All in all, I regret buying all of these products, but they might work amazingly for you, so let me know if you tried any of those and what do you think of them.

Oh, and one last thing...I will try my best and write to times per week (Wednesdays and Sundays), but make sure you follow me on Bloglovin, so you never miss my new posts.

Love, T.

DIY: Lip Scrub ♡

Hi you lovely people! :)

Recently I noticed my lips were in bad shape, kind of dry and flaky. So I immediately went to the kitchen and made a lip scrub. And here is how I did it. :)



You will need a teaspoon of brown sugar, half a teaspoon of honey and a third of a teaspoon of coconut oil, which you can replace with any other moisturizing oil. All you have to do now, is mix everything in a small cup.


You get a thick, brown, sticky thing you put on your lips and scrub away :).


I usually put what's left in the refrigerator and use over the next few days.

This scrub is so quick and easy to make, so if you have dry lips and your lip balm is not helping anymore, try making a scrub and nurish your lips a little bit :).

That's all from me today - just a quick post, which you'll hopefully find interesting and helpful. Let me know if you try it out or have any other tips for dry lips.

Have a nice day.

Love, T.

Spring Lip Picks ♡

Hi you lovely people!

We are going to talk about lipsticks today :). To be more precise, I'm going to show you my favourite lip products that I love using in spring.


For the last two months or so, these three lip products are pretty much the only ones that I've been wearing.

Left - right: Chanel (Boy); Maybelline (Cherry Me); Rimmel (Aurora)

Let's start with the most precious one in my collection - this gorgeous Chanel Rouge Coco Shine lipstick in color 54 Boy. I can't say enough nice things about it. It is the creamiest lipstick that I've ever tried and the color that I have is so nice for everyday use, since it is a your lips but better kind of color. If you are thinking about buying a high end lipstick, give this one a try. I guarantee you won't be disappointed :). You can get it in Müller for around 30 €, or order it online here.

Next one is Maybelline Baby Lips in Cherry Me. This one is a tinted lip balm that moisturizes you lips and gives some color at the same time. I find myself reaching for it a lot as it's so quick and easy to use. It will cost you less then 3 € in any drugstore or you can buy it here

The last one that I'm going to talk about today is Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer in Aurora. Whenever I feel like wearing a bold lip color I use this lip gloss that goes on like a lipstick, but also has some shine. It stayes on for ages which is always a plus for me. You can get it for 7,79 € from Feelunique here

from the top: Chanel (Boy), Maybelline (Cherry Me), Rimmel (Aurora)
What do you think about this products and what's your favourite lipstick? I would love to know, so tell me in comments below and we can have a little chat :).

Have a nice Sunday!

Love, T.

Review: Makeup Revolution London ♡

Hi you lovely people! :)

A few weeks ago, I came across a new brand for me - Makeup Revolution London and decided to try it out.


I got my package yesterday and I had the chance to already use all of the products so I'm going to write a first imppresions / review tipe of a post.

Iconic 3 Palette

This palette is suppose to be a dupe for Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette and after seeing swatches of it, I totally agree. I love the colors in it, which are nice and easily blendable. The pigmentation is not the best, but for 5,95 € I'm not complaining at all :). 


Focus & Fix Eye Primer (Original)
I decided that I need an Eye Primer as well and I can assure you this was a great idea. I got the Original version of it and I've really been loving it so far. It helps my eyeshadows to stay in place for whole day and it also makes them appear a lot more vibrant. For 3,95 €, you can't really go wrong with it. :)


Left: Cream Blush (Peach Cream); Right: Vivid Baked Bronzer (Ready To Go)

The last two products that I bought are a cream blush and a bronzer. I never used a cream blush before and I have to say that I love this one! Creamy, smooth, looks amazing on the skin and it's so cheap - 1,95 €. I'm defenatelly buying more colors soon. ♡
And the last but not the least...Bronzer in Ready To Go. I like its consistency, easy application and how glowy it looks on my skin. It is just the right color for me right now, but I think I will have to buy a darker one for summer. You can guess it now, this one is a bargain as well - 5,95 € :).


I'm leaving you with a photo of my everyday makeup look using all of the products mantioned in this post. I am defenately buying a lot more from this brand as they make good products for even better prices :). 
Slovenian readers can get Makeup Revolution from Licila.si or directly from their site here (international shipping).

Have a lovely day my loves!

Love, T.

Put to the test: Essie First Base

Hi you lovely people! :)

Even though I'm pretty much obsessed with nail polish, I was always to lazy to use a base coat. Because of that my nail polish would usually chip on first day, but since I like changing colors on my nails a lot, I didn't really mind. That was until I saw a lot of beauty YouTubers talk about base coats and all of a sudden I needed one in my life (I'm weird, I know =D). I think I tried 4 different ones and didn't particularly like any of them, until I tried one by Essie. After a long intro, here is a picture of it :).


It is advertised as a rubber adhesive bond polish to the nail surface, which protects color wear and creates a smooth canvas for color application and I agree with all of that.

Essie - Style Hunter
This is how my nails looked on day 3. Yep, no chips yet! :)


And this are my nails on fifth day. You can see (hopefully the picture is not too bad) some chips on my middle and ring finger, but that was about it :). Oh, I also have to tell you that I was washing dishes every day, so this base coat is damn good!

All in all, I have to say I'm really impressed with it. I'm never skipping base coat ever again and hopefully this one is going to perform that well all the time.

Slovenian readers can get it in Dm for 10,99 €, but it is also avalible on Feelunique for 8,95 £.

Have you tried this one yet? Let me know which base coat you like in the comments below :). You can also follow me on Bloglovin

Have a nice day!

Love, T.

April Favourites 2014 ♡

Hi you lovely people! :)

Long time no read, I know...but I am back now with a post about things I've been loving in April.



I only recently started using eye creams, so I haven't tried a lot of them yet, but right now I really like Alverde's Augencreme Augentrost. It's a very nourishing thick white cream with euphrasia that moisturizes my eye area right away. I find it very soothing and it helps me a lot with itchiness around the eyes. But be careful to really let in sink in your skin before using any makeup (especially mascara), as it will smudge under your eyes. You can get it in Dm for 4,19 €.



Staying with the eye theme, it's Essence's Super Fine Eyeliner Pen. It has been a saviour for me, as I always struggle with winged eyeliner. The pen has an extremely pointy end that helps you get right in to the inner corner of your eye and you can make a super fine line with it. You also can't get anny better for the price of 2,69 € (also in Dm).



I guess Essence has been making really good makeup lately, because next favourite of mine is also theirs. Yes, I'm talking about I Love Extreme Mascara :). I think the name says it all! It's a lovely volumising mascara that makes my lashes look amazing and even though I was sceptical at first, I love it. I also like the price of it - 3,19 € (in Dm, ofcourse ^.^).




This month I've also been loving wearing bold colors on my lips and most of the time it was Rimmel's Apocalips Lip Lacquer in Aurora. Aurora is an intense deep pinky red color that goes on like a lipstick, but also has some shine and stayes on for ages. Love it! ♡
You can get it on Feelunique for 7,79 €.



And the last one is probably no surprise to anyone...Essie's - Fiji. You can read my review of it here, but I just have to put another picture of this gorgeous nail polish for your eyes to see :).


Just decided to include a random favourite as well and it's a song Somebody to you from a band called The Vamps. I really like their music and I've been listening to it all the time.

That's it for today :). If you want me to do a more detailed review of any of the products mentioned in this blog post just let me know in the comments and make sure you follow me on Bloglovin.
