Corine de Farme Micelar Water



I'm gonna start by saying that I'm not really a fun of this.
I started using as a makeup remover, but (although it smells good) it doesn't remove all of my makeup (especially not waterproof) and it's quite drying on the skin, which is odd, because it says it's for dry skin. 

What I'm currently using it for, is as my tonic. Before applying my day cream, I put this in a cotton pad and clean my face with it., it's much better that way, for me at least. Since I have oily skin, this helps drying it a bit, before I have to apply my makeup.

And the pump... Oh that pump! It splashes everywhere! It's almost impossible to get the product out, without you splashing some on your shirt or floor.

One thing is sure. I will not buy this again. It's cheap (around 5/6€) and it has a lot of product, but it's not a micelar water for me, I much prefer the Garnier one.

Have you tried it, yet? Does it work on you?

Dove Purely Pampering Hand Cream


So lately, I've been taking better care of my hands. I was never one to moisturise my hands and nails everyday. It was such a faff! Then the hands would get all sticky for what seemed like forever and let me tell you something, I absolutely hate greasy things. I can't stand the feeling of it (I'm slowly getting better, recently I've even added a cleansing oil and a serum in oil to my beauty routine - crazy times, people!). So, I decided it was time to start taking better care of my hands, specially my cuticles (soooooo dry!).

I saw this little guy on sale and decided to give him a chance.
Oh my lord - it smells divine! This warm vanilla scent. I love it!
As far as greasy feelings goes, it has none. It's a very indulging hand cream. You rub it for a few seconds and it's gone. Your hands are left feeling soft and smelling amazing.
Mine is almost dying on me, so I already got another.
Definitely recommend this one, although I really one try the Pitaya one, from Boticário!

You can get it in any supermarket, often on some sort of offer. 
Hope you liked it and do give it a sniff, I'm sure you won't regret it!

Kiko new highlighter - Pearly Rock

Another Kiko product.
I'm getting so into Kiko makeup, lately. It's so affordable and all the products have amazing quality, that it's impossible to pass them up - if you're a crazy obsessed makeup freak.
This time I'm talking about their most recent highlighter. I've been really getting into highlighting and contouring and I love popping a bit of shimmery goodness on the high points of my face, so I decided to pick this bad boy up.

GRWM - Wearable Orange

Sooooo...
My second youtube video is life! 
Ah! So excited.
This time it's a quick "get ready with me" and I really hope you like. I decided to incorporate some orangy tones in my eyeshadow and in my lipstick, but nothing too scary, everything is really wearable in a day-to-day basis. It's a look I would wear to go shopping or maybe have a lunch with the family.
Tell me your thoughts on it!


Enjoy!

Mini Bodyshop Haul

And more shopping...
I swear I cannot resist a good deal.
I really wanted some bits and bobs, from the Bodyshop, but they were a bit on the expensive side, so I kinda put off buying them, but like faith, I went to my local Primark and they also have a Bodyshop store in the mall and I said to the BF - " Let me just smell the new body butter scent" - and then bamn! Huge deal going on. They were having 3 for 2 in the whole store and also had a + 10% discount in the LYB card. 
I just couldn't pass that up!

NOTD - Essence "That's What I Mint"


Love me some mint green nail polish. It's such a cool shade. So Spring appropriate. Absolutely love it!
I have a few Essence nail polish and I really like them. They have a pretty good quality for the price. A good thick brush - two swipes and you're done - and they dry in reasonable amount of time.
They last a good 3/4 days on my nails, using of course a top and base coat. 
It's pretty opaque with one coat, but I normally use two, to get rid of any possible streaks.
They do claim that they have a gel-shine effect, but honestly they are as shinny as my Kiko nail polishes, so nothing too fancy there.

The packaging it's pretty cute and they are always coming out with new colours, so go and take a look at some of them and tell me what you think!

You can find it here for 1,99€.

Too Faced Chocolate Bar

And here it is lady's and gentlemen. The one and only - Too Faced Chocolate Bar!
It's beautiful, it's smells amazing, and it looks like a chocolate bar. Seriously, what more can you want from a makeup palette?!
I've been so in love with this thing. For the past two weeks, it's all that I've used for my eye looks.
The shadows are gorgeous and they all blend amazingly well.
If you're a neutral lover, go get you some of this.
