Essence My Skin Skincare

This is been a long time coming, I believe I've had them in my skincare drawer, for three to four years now! Crazy, crazy times - don't worry, I'm not actually crazy, so I have not been using them in a very long time. The truth is, I moved to some greener and more expensive pastures and never really finished this bad boys and cause I've got a hoarder complex, I never threw them away (for some unknown reason).

NOTD: Kiko 386 "Light Pastel Blue"

Aaaaand it's another nail polish from Kiko - I bet you didn't saw that one coming (I promise I'll change it up next week)!

So, excuse the chips, but I only remember to take the pictures, when things weren't as great (I'd say day number 3). Seriously don't know what's happening lately, but my nail polishes aren't looking as great as they did before. Might need to change my top coat or base coat again - figures.

Another pretty blue, I know! This one is more the colour of denim jeans, I'd say. As always Kiko bright nail polishes do not disappoint. Opaque in one coat (although I applied two, to be less streaky) - doesn't get much better than that.
Been all over the blues, for this Summer. I just think they look freankin' amazing on the nails! Have you got some blue on your nails too? Let me know (so I can buy more nail polish - cause apparently I don't have enough)!

You can find this little guy here for 1,90€ at the moment!

A Vinegar For Your Hair?

As far as my hair goes, I'm really proud of myself. I've never really cared that much about it, I just shampooed and conditioned, but that was about it. Slowly and painfully, I started adding more and more products to my hair routine, that I feel that really make a difference.

50 Shades of Grey - The Movie

So, this is something a little different today. After watching the trailer and kinda going cray cray on twitter about it, I've decided that I wanted to share it in here too.

I've read the books - and yes I love all three of them. I don't care if it's soft porn, if it's girl porn or whatever you wanna call it... I like the story behind it and I enjoyed the evolution of the characters. Yes, it was a ton of kinky sex, that an average person will never have, but man, oh man! I would loveeeee to get a Mr. Grey for myself (sorry babe! Still love you!).

I haven't bought the books, but after watching that damn trailer for 6 times already, I feel the need to reread the whole trilogy again - yes, I'm one of those people!

As far as the casting for the movie goes, I think I'm a little disappointed that Mr. Grey is not as broody, as mysterious and as sexy as I imagined - I may, or may not have the secret desire do see Ian Somerhalder play the part of Mr. Grey, but I guess that ship has sailed (sheds a tear).

But can we just talk about the remake of "Crazy in Love"?! Girl, you talk about a sexy song!

So, I will be anxiously awaiting for February to come, but for now, I'm gonna stick to the trailer (yes, I'm obsessed, I'm aware of that).

I'm gonna shut up now - just go and watch it!

It's a No: Kiko Photo-Age Sunscreen Cream SPF 30

I'm gonna start by saying, that I don't like to throw stuff away, but this just made me change my mind. I did give it a more than one fair try, but this is just a no, no for me.

NOTD - Kiko's Venus Pink

As much as I love Kiko nail polishes, some of their colours, just don't do it for me. It's that damn formula! It changes from the brighter and bolder to the pastel and nude ones. So annoying...

Well, I love the colour of Venus Pink (506, if you're buying it in a store). It's a barbie, bubblegum pink, that looks freankin' amazing on the nails. This one, as you can probably tell, made those weird bubbles underneath the nail polish, which is quite weird, because I let things dry completely, but oh well... 

You can find it here for 1,90€ at the moment!

Try these: Kiko Long Lasting Eyeshadows

Ok, so I guess I'm gonna start by saying, that I was never into cream eyeshadows. Being an oily girl, let just say that I stayed as far away as possible of everything cream, but things do change and I learn to accept my oily skin, as well as, enjoying some natural glow.

Sleek Pout Paint in Rosette

As soon I was I knew that all of the Sleek Pout Paints were 1€ in all Portugal Sephoras, I was all over that! 
I still managed to grab four of them, before they completely run out of stock.

NOTD - Blush by Kiko

I'm gonna start my apologising for the awful, awful state of my cuticles, but honestly I just couldn't be bothered lately. Besides I don't have any awesome cuticle oil at the moment and I really don't like to cut them or push them in, I just leave them be (I would like to think of my cuticles as free spirits). So if you have a cuticle oil that you're loving at the moment, please let me know! 

Moving on to the nails.
I was really on the hunt for that perfect nude nail polish, that would look good with my super pale skin, without making me look like a character from the Walking Dead. 
So, while I was browsing the Kiko store, I found this little cutie, the "507 - Blush".  It's this nude peachy colour, that looks amazing on anyone with a bit of a tan. It doesn't look half bad on me, but it's still not my perfect shade. 

As far as the formula goes, I didn't like it as much as I do my other Kiko nail polishes (385, I'm looking at you!). It's very patchy and it chips very easily. So, not too impressed with that.

You can find it here for 1,90€ at the moment.

So, by now you've all realised that I'm a bit obsessed with The Bodyshop.

Instablur by The Bodyshop

This has got to be one of the best primers I've tried so far.
