EOTD: Seashore with MUS products

Hello, beauties! 
Here is just a very quick post showing you one way of using Make up store summer collection microshadows.
You can see new collections here and some product swatches here.
So what did I exactly use:
1. Start out with priming your eyelid, that gives eyeshadows something to stick to and so they will appear more vibrant and last longer on your lids. I used Make Up Stores tinted eyeprimer. I have owned that forever now, and it is still going strong- you will need tiniest amount.
2. Then I applied the lightest shadow in the inner corner of my eye and on browbone. I used Microshadow in Sun breeze(permanent color).
3. Then I picked up gorgeous warm oranga Microshadow called Starfish and applied it all over the lid with a flat shader brush.
4. Next take Microshadow in Algae and apply it with a fluffy brush into your crease and outer corner.
5. Then I took the same orange color and used it to blend out the green just above my crease. I just felt the need to warm that area up a little bit.
6. Next step is eyepencil in Water spring. As you can see I applied it on my lower lashline and waterline, but in the waterline this pencil didn´t stay very well. After 2-3 hours it was gone.
7. Eyeliner is Milani Eye Tech (and I do apologize for uneven lines, I did this look just for this post and didn't have time to start all over again) I got this from Valentine´s day swap package, thank you again Priscilla!
8. Mascara is Maybelline Falsies. 
9. Eyebrows NYX eyeshadow + ELF wet gloss lash & brow clear mascara

Review and Swatches: Make Up Store Spring&Summer collection products

Hello, Beauties!
As promised yesterday, here are some products from Make Up Store Spring & Summer collection.
Nagu eile lubasin, näete täna Make Up Store'i kevad ja suvekollektsiooni tooteid. Mul pole neist kõiki, kuid need mis sain on kõik siin postis näidatud. 
Here is everything that I got/ Siin on kõik tooted, mis ma pressikotist sain. 
Lets start with Microshadows (11.2€ each)
This time I got 3 eyeshadows and to my surprise I can actually create a look with them. Usually the products are chosen totally randomly.
Starfish & Algae are from Summer collection and should be available from March.
Cultural is already in stores. 
They seem very bold and pigmented on the swatches, but on the eyelid they aren't that intimitading - so totally wearable in my opinion. 
Theses swatches are done on MUS tinted eyeprimer and photo is taken in daylight. 

Alustaksin siis uutest Microshadow lauvärvidest, sain neid 3:
Algae on külm hallikasroheline toon.
Starfish on kirgas oranž
Cultural on kollakas heleroheline (ingl keeles chartruse vist?)
Kõik need toonid tunduvad esmapilgul hirmutavad, kuid vaadake kindlasti ka lõpus pilte silmameigist kus neid kasutasin- laul jäävad nad siiski veidi tagasihoidlikumad. 
Kõik swatchid tegin päevavalguses ja välguta, kasutasin nende all MUS tinted silmameigialuskreemi.
Kellel huvi, siis Cultural on juba poodides olemas, Starfish & Algae peaksid tulema märtsis. Maksavad nad 11.2 eurot tükk, aga koguseliselt teeb MACile 2x kindlasti ära- microshadow'd on suured!
 

This photo is taken in daylight with flash. / Kõik lauvärvid koos, pilt tehtud päevavalguses ja välguga.
I love these eyepencils, they are really creamy and soft, also they have great pigmentation. I tried to use water spring on my waterline for the look you can see below, but it didn't stay on there very long. But for lower lashline to spice up simple eyelook, they are perfect. 
Ice blue is from Ethnic collection and it is already available. 
Water spring is from coral collection and should be available soon.

Ütlen ausalt, see on mul esimene kord MUS silmapliiatseid kodus katsetada ja olen positiivselt üllatunud. Pliiatsid on mõnusalt pehmed ja superpigmendiga, kahjuks limaskestal nad ei püsi, kuid sobiksid ideaalselt alumisele ripsmejoonele, et ka kõige igavam silmameik särtsakaks muuta. 
Mõlemad on metalliktoonid, üks on imekena jäine sinine ja teine sinaka varjundiga tumeroheline. Kindlasti proovige ära ja öelge, mis te arvate. Ice blue on juba poodides saadaval, water spring peaks tulema märtsis. Maksavad nad 9.6€ tükk.
I also got 3 lip products: lipgloss, lipstick and lip wand. 
Sain ka 3 huultele mõeldud toodet: huuleläike, huulepulga ja huuleläike potikeses.
I didn't but here a photo og lipgloss, but I can assure you, that it is nicely pigmented  cute pink lipgloss. Only downside is that you will have to use a lipbrush to add it to your lips. I am not professional MUA and for personal use this is kind of inconvenient.

Esiteks siis huuleläige potikeses. Tegemist on kena sooja roosa tooniga, mis annab huultele veidi värvi ja kena läike. Ma ei pannud küll siia hetkel pilti, kus see toode oleks mu huultel, aga ta jäi täiesti nähtav (ja mul on üsna punased huuled). Miinuseks tooksingi selle, et ta on potikeses- lihtsalt isiklikus kasutamises on see veidi ebamugav. Näpuga pealekandmine on minu meelest liiga ebatäpne ja kõigil ei ole ju kodus lademetes huulepintsleid. Kindlasti on selline tootevariant hea aga meigikunstnikele- väga mugav ja hügieeniline on seda toodet kasutada, kui on palju kliente.
Seda huuleläiget võite otsima minna märtsis, maksab ta tõenäoliselt ka 11-12€ (ma ausalt täpselt ei tea). 

This bright coral pink lipstick is called attitude. It is in sheer "formula" that means, that it isn't supposed to be super pigmented. This is quite creamy, not too drying and not very long lasting - I tried it already and it stayed on my lips for 3-4 hours (without eating). I am into more peachy shades recently so this lipstick will be perfect for summer!

See erk korallroosa huulepulk kuulub MUS suvekollektsiooni. Vaatamata ülierksale toonile tuubis jääb ta huultel kena ja tagasihoidlik. Kuna mulle üha enam meeldivad virsikukarva soojemad roosad, siis on see minu arvates suveks ideaalne! Huultel tundub ta mõnusalt kreemjas, ei kuivata huuli. Peal püsis mul u 3-4h. Saadaval alates märtsist ja maksab 12.5€. 

Last but not least, I got Lip wand (that's just how lipglosses are called in MUS) in Amaryllis. This seems to be yet again really pretty coral red shade in the tube. It isn't watery at all, more on the sticky side, but not overly sticky- the stickiness just helps to keep it on your lips longer. 

Viimase tootena näitan teile MUS huuleläiget toonis Amaryllis. See on Ethnic kollektsiooni kuuluv toode, seega võite seda soovi korral juba praegu osta. Maksab ta 12.2€. 
Pigem paksema tektuuriga ja veidike kleepuv huuleläige, millel on kena pigment ja mõnus veidi puuviljane lõhn. Nagu näete, siis pole tegemist päris kreemja läikega, vaid see sisaldab ka veidi glitterit. 
So what do you think of these collections? Is there anything that caught you eye and want to purchase?

Thank you for reading!

Mis te arvate MUS kevad-suvistest kollektsioonidest, kas midagi jäi ka silma ja soovite kindlasti ka endale soetada?

The MBB Monday Poll



I decided to the the MBB poll today, I don't know yet if I am going to do it every Monday or not, let me know in the comments if you are interested in my ramblings. I feel like I should add more me into my blog... I don't really hate mondays, today I even waited for it, because I had a 4 day weekend. 
You can read Karen's(the MBB blog writer) asnwers here.
1. Mood:
Tired, but happy, just got home from Zumba workout. 

2. It’s Girl Scout Cookie season! Do you have a favorite?

We don't have that kind of girl scouts in Estonia, well at least it is not so widely spread. I am kind of sad that I am missing out on delicious homemade cookies. But it is defenitely better for my figure... 

3. One thing you absolutely must finish today?

Unpack my gym bag... I never leave my things in it over night, that's just gross.

4. What’s one lesson you wish you’d learned earlier in life?

Keeping my mouth shut in certain places, but like the say- wisdom comes from experience.

5. Would you want to see five years into your future?

It would be defenitely interesting, but I prefer not to know, spoilers make things less interesting, you know!

6. Is there anything you wish you spent less time doing?

Yes! Being on my computer, watching youtube videos - it is hard not to do it, I am subscribed to so many people and I just MUST see all new videos. 

7. What’s one of your makeup mottos?

Lately, "Less is more!" - yes I like full face makeup, but recently I just want to do everything quicker. That means I also use less products on my skin.

8. Three makeup brushes you couldn’t live without:

I don't own a ton of expensive brushes, so I just list some brushes here that I use every single time I do my makeup.
Sigma F80 for my foundation
ELF Blush Brush- perfect size! 
ELF Eyeshadow C brush

9. Someday I’m going to…

have my own house, enough room for friends and family to stay over. I live in a small 1-roomed appartment right now, that's why I won't do any roomtours or makeup storage videos - I don't have enough room for appropriate furniture to store everything. 

10. Weekly goals:

Study for otorhinolaryngology exam(ear-nose-throat diseases) 
Post at least 2 more posts (If I manage, tomorrow you'll see Make Up Store Spring-Summer collection swatches ;) )
Finally post a package to my blogiversary giveaway winner - not toatally my fault, because the first person didn't answer me so I had to wait a few days to choose another winner. 


Hope you liked this poll! :)
Thank you for reading!

Review: ColorOn Professional Eye Envy in Grace

Hey!
Today I am finally reviewing ColorOn eye applicators that I got in January from my glambox. Tone that I got is from Rhapsody in gray kit and it is called grace. Grace combines gray and lilac together beautifully- well at least on the promo picture.
Yes, this is what I am talking about: "ColorOn- professional makeup in 60 seconds"
Price: $18-$30 a box, available at sephora and on their website: http://www.coloronpro.com/
Price depends on how many pairs are in the box: 5-20. You can use one applicator several times. 
Color Selection: is very wide, you can get dark smokey eyes, subtle day makeup or crazy graphic zebra prints. 
What is it: Creamy eyeshadow on soft paper like material. 
How to use it:
1.
Prepare your eyelid - clean eyelid is best canvas for this product
2. Apply
3. Smooth the applicator down- more pressure equals more color on the lid. 
4. Blend - use your fingers for it
5. Set- use the setting powder that comes in the kit, just pat the powder on. 
You should  have beautiful eye makeup that stays all day. We'll see now how it all worked in reality.

This is the kit I have. In Estonia ColorOn is sold by glambox.ee and mine comes in a Rhapsody of Gray kit, I got just one sample and it is called Grace. One kit costs 29.90€ and comes with 5 applicators, a powder and a brush. 
Application was easier that I thought, but the color just don´t look the same as on the promo photo. In real life it looks more one toned gray than nice gradient of gray and lilac. I wish that the color had more dimension to it, like deeper crease and brow highlight. 
When you have just one color, then it is easy to tell that one applicator will suit every eyeshape, because you don´t have to worry about different shading. 
Also I wish that the applicator was tiny bit bigger, I don´t have extra huge eyelids, but the color did not come up to my brows. I have read from other blogs that for some people the applicator is too big. 
Pictures are taken in artifical light, maybe that is why the colors don´t appear so vibrant.On the lids grace appears just as light gray.
I used one applicator for both eyes, because they really don´t have any shape difference, both are ovals, colors are in the same place. 
Pros: Very quick and easy application (well not really 60 seconds, more like a few minutes)
Cons: 
  • They are too pricey, at least in Estonia. 
  • Application could be quicker- blending still takes time, because as you can see from the picture at first the paper grid shows on the shadow. 
  • Also it is very easy to overblend, I didn't smudge it with my fingers too much, but still I think I lost a lot of color. 
  • Creased on me after 3-4 hours 
  • I can't talk about fading, because I did not wear them all they long
  • One applicator size does not suit everyone

In conclusion: As much as I may like the idea of really quick eyeshadow application I still prefer the more traditional way- using eyeshadows and brushes. That offers me more control over the results and more different looks. Even if you are total beginner you manage to put one shadow all over your lid in relatively small amount of time. So no, I wouldn't repurchase this product.
ColorOn has been around since 1992, I think maybe then it might have been really innovative beauty product, but now we have so much variety to choose from that it doesn't seem so special. 
It is not totally bad, so I will give it 3 out of 5.

In Estonian:
Täna tutvustan teile ColorOn lauvärvi aplikaatorit. Sain selle toote oma jaanuarikuu glamboxist ja kuna küsiti ka ülevaadet, siis lubasin selle teha. 

Kõigepealt info Glambox.ee lehelt antud toote kohta: maksab see 29.90€,  komplektis on 5 aplikaatorit. 
ColorOn Pro uue põlvkonna lauvärvid:
  • Efektsete toonidega mineraalne ja allergeenivaba lauvärv 
  • Professionaalne tulemus VAID 60 sekundiga 
  • Sobib igale silma kujule ja suurusele 
  • Kauapüsiv ning veekindel 
  • 1 aplikaator on korduvkasutatav (5-10 korda) 
Kasutamine:
  • PAIGALDA - Pane silm kinni ja aseta laule, vajutades õrnalt aplikaatorile. 
  • SILU - Silu kergelt aplikaatorit alustades silmanurgast kuni lau lõpu kulmupiirkonnani. Mida tugevam vajutus seda sügavam ning erksam on värvitoon. 
  • EEMALDA - Eemalda õrnalt aplikaator ning soovi korral jäta see korduvkasutamiseks. 
  • HAJUTA - Kasuta näpuotsi mineraalpuudri hajutamiseks. 
  • VIIMISTLE - Fikseeri GetSet™ puudri ning pintsli abil saavutatud tulemus.
Mida ma antud tootest arvan:
Paigaldamine oli tõesti kiire ja lihtne, kuid siiski võttis rohkem kui lubatud 60 sekundit. Hajutamine pole keeruline, aga võtab ikkagi aega ja väga lihtne on liiga palju hajutada st et lõpptulemuseks on ainult õrn lauvärvitoon. Kuigi on lubatud püsimist kogu päeva, siis minu laugudel hakkasid lauvärvid kortsukestesse kogunema juba 3-4 tunniga. Tegemist on kreemjate lauvärvidega, mis mind alguses väga üllatas - ootasin ju nö tavalisi puudervärve. Aplikaator on ovaalne ja kõigile silmadele peaks sobima sama suurus- tegelikkuses on inimesi, kellel on suuremad või väiksemad laud, nii et päris kõigile ta samamoodi peale ei jää. Nagu näete ülevaltpoolt pildilt, siis minu lau jaoks on nad isegi veidi väiksesed, kuigi enda arvates pole mul laupinda üli palju. Mis mulle veel ei meeldi, on see, et aplikaatori peal tundub, nagu saaksid laule kena halli-lilla üleminekuga meigi, kuid tegelikult lõpptulemus on pigem ühtalselt helehall. Võimalik, et siin saab süüdistada jälle üleliigset hajutamist. Kui juba nii palju asju lõpptulemust mõjutavad, kas siis tõesti saab lihtsast paigaldusest rääkida? 

Kuigi idee on hea ja omal ajal oli tegemist kindlasti innovaatilise tootega(coloron on olemas juba 1992a alates), siis mina jään ikkagi traditsioonilise lauvärvi ja pintslite juurde. Tavapärane silmameik annab palju rohkem kontrolli ja lubab ka suuremat fantaasialendu. 
Kas ma neid soovitan- ma kardan, et mitte, sest ühetoonilise silmameigi tegemisega saab ju ka kõige algajam inimene hakkama. Lauvärvid maksavad tunduvalt vähem kui coloron toode ning neist jätkub kauemaks. 
Nagu ma alati öelnud olen, siis olen oma arvustustes aus, muidu poleks ju neist kellelegi kasu. :)

Kõike head,
Liis

Glambox: February 2012

Hello, beauties!
For short conclusion in English- glambox is Estonian version of glossy box or other monthly subsription box full of beauty samples and travel size products. This service costs 7.9€ a month which is roughly 10$.  Following text will be in Estonian, because you can´t get this exact box in other countries. 
FYI: this was sent me for review purposes.


Täna näitan teile, mis oli minu veebruari glamboxis. Käisin sellel järel küll juba 20.veebruaril, aga mul on tõesti koguaeg nii kiire, et ei leia aega lihtsalt blogipostituse kirjutamiseks. Kool, valikained, trennid ja miljon asja millest peaks kirjutama siia. Hetkel ootab konkreetselt 4-5-6 postitust järjekorras, pildid on tehtud ja nüüd on vaja nad veidi esinduslikumaks töödelda (värve ei muuda, ausõna). Tahaks, et päevas oleks rohkem tunde, et jõuaks siia tihedamini postitada ning näiteks vahelduseks lugeda. Hetkel on mul väike DIY projekt käsil, hakkasin endale salli kuduma, andke teada kui lõpptulemust näha tahate. Lõnga on vist nii palju, et õnnestub esimest korda elus ka müts ja kindad samast lõngast teha(nende kudumises ma nii osav vist ei ole).

Nii, aga räägin siis nüüd veidi glamboxist. Tõenäoliselt olete te juba kellegi arvustust sellel kuul lugenud, aga lisan ka enda arvamuse interneti avarustesse. Sain tavalise glamboxi, mitte valentinipäeva eri!
Karp oli sama armas nagu alati, erkroosa lipsuga. Tavalisest karbist eristas veebruari karpi heleroosa paber ja sädelevad südemed. 

 Esiteks on tuldud vastu tellijate soovile ning on lisatud karbikesse meigitooteid. Sellel kuul olid esindatud Bourjois minitooted: lauvärv(nr51), huuleläige(Rose a l´eau) ja küünelakk(tooni nime pole, aga nr 13 on värv). Bourjois tooteid hetkel ma glamboxi poest ei ledinud, aga huuleläike hinnaks on märgitud 3.3€, küünelakil 2.95€ ning lauvärvil 3.3€. 
Lauvärv(1.5g) tundub olevat keskmise kvaliteediga, pigment on veidi ebaühtlane ning tegemist ei ole ülipeene tekstuuriga "võise" lauvärviga. Toon 51 on kena metalne pruun. 

Huuleläige on pisike(1.7ml) ja põnev on see, et seda saab telefoni külge panna, mida ma ilmselt ei tee. Kasutamise muudab mugavamaks pikendatud kork ning pealekandmiseks on tootel pisike pintsel. Minu huultele andis tõesti ainult läiget ja tõesti annab värskust kiheleva tunde näol. Kes ei tea, siis seda tunnet tekitavad kõik huuli näiliselt suurendavad tooted- verevool huultesse suureneb. 
Küünelakk on tõesti mõnusalt pisike(3ml), aga käekotis ma siiski lakke ei kanna nagu on soovitatud kaasasolevas tooteid tutvustavas kirjakeses. Tegemist on keskmise katvusega virsikuroosa küünelakiga, millel on frosty lõpptulemus, mis pole mu lemmik, kuna odavamad lakid kipuvad jääma küüntel triibulised. Pudelis tundub roosam kui küünel. 
Pildil on kasutatud 2 kihti lakki.





Lisaks meigitoodetele leidsin oma karbist TIGI Bed Head Color Combat šampooni ja palsami testri- kahjuks ma oma juukseid ei värvi st pole teinud seda juba 2,5 aastat, nii et need annan tõenäoliselt emale. Kindlasti küsin tema arvamust pärast, et seda teiega jagada. Testrid on 7ml, mõeldud brünettidele ja punapeadele ning tavahind on šampoonil 15.9€ ja palsamil 17.9€ . Lubavad hoida värvi kauem säravana ning juukseid niisutatuna. 



Ülihea toode tundub olevat ka Eminence Organic Skin Care Sweet Red Rose Whip Moisturizer u 5ml, mis on üsna kallis toode, 60ml maksab 72.40€(hetkel soodushind 57.95€). Lugedes tootekirjeldust võiks arvata, et seekord on küll näokreemiga täppi pandud. Mul on probleeme näo punetuse ja tundlikkusega ning alati võiks ju poorid väiksemad olla. 


Karbis oli ka Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Face Wash gel 15ml, neemipuu ekstraktiga näopesu geel, mis on seebivaba ja eemaldab õrnalt näolt mustuse ja ennetab punnikesi. Himalaya on oma haaret laiendanud ja nüüd saab nende tooteid osta kõigist suurematest poodidest. Selle toote leiate ka glamboxi poest ja hetkel maksab 150ml suurune tuub  4.19€. Konkreetse brändiga on mul kahjuks aga ebameeldiv kogemus, nende Mandli-kurgi kilemask ei sobinud mulle üldse (nimel klikates satute tootearvustusele).

Veel sisaldas mu karp 175grammist kotikest naturaalse vannisoolaga, mis on käsitsi valmistatud looduslik vannisool, hinnaks märgitud 4€. Kahjuks ei lõhna ta kuidagi. Kuna ma eriline vanniskäija ei ole, siis kasutan vast selle jalavannides ära, siis peaks sellest u 4 korraks jätkuma. 
Sõbrapäeva puhul oli karbis ka one kondoom, seda ma siin kirjeldama ei hakka. Karbis on ka traditsiooniline Geisha šokolaad, mis juba oma lõpu leidis. Šokolaad ei seisa mu kodus väga kaua puutumatuna. ;)
Mõningate toodete näited mu käel: 

Ülilahe uudis on see, et alates märtsist saab glambox.ee netipoest osta ka Revloni tooteid. Ma loodan väga, et tuuakse maale ka uuemaid tooteid s.h. Lip Buttereid. Mul nüüd üks on olemas, aga kahjuks on see valet tooni.  Kindlasti tellin kohe poe tühjaks("väike" liialdus), nii palju revloni tooteid on, mida tahaks proovida.
Kahjuks otsustas glamboxi meeskond teenuse hinda tõsta- karp maksab nüüd endise 7.95€ asemel 9.95€.  Põhjuseks toodi postiteenuse kallinemist ning soovi pakkuda meile paremaid tooteid. Tellisin endale oma raha eest juba märtsikuu karbi ära, veebruari omast oleks juba peaaegu ilma jäänud. Eks järgmine kuu näete, kas hinnatõus on ennast ka õigustanud. Siiamaani olen karpidega rahul olnud, sest lubatud 4-5 toote asemel on alati olnud asju rohkem. 
NB! Kui soovite märtsi glamboxi, siis peate selle tellima enne 10.

Andke teada, mida te veebruari karbist arvate. Olete te ise ka juba glamboxi tellinud? Kuidas rahul jäite?

Kõike head,
Liis

Trend: Make Up Store Spring and Summer 2012

Hello, beauties!


Today I want to introduce you 2 makeup collections by Make Up Store. This time unfortunately I did not have time to go actually to the press event, but I still managed to write a blog post thanks to generosity of Estonian Make Up Store. So let's jump right into interesting stuff. :) Estonians are really lucky, because this awesome makeup brand has 3 separate stores and also ILU stores sell make up store products, whereas in UK or US there are really few stores. Use your advantage, ladies. :)

First up is spring collection which is called Ethnic. 
Inspired by everything ethnic, this collection may be described as eccentric, colorful and powerful. Main influence came from ancient Peru.
Here is a list what this collection consists of:
4 microshadows
2 lipglosses
1 lipstick
1 eye pencil
In my opinion you can't quite get a complete look with these products(for example, there is no blush), but you can always use other Make Up Store (or other brands) makeup to combine with these colors. 
I took the product photos and look photo - and made it all into one big picture to get better overview ;) 
  • Lipstick costs 12.5€ and is really bright warm toned, almost orangey red. This is matte lipstick, so it should last quite long on your lips. 
  • Lip gloss costs 12.20€ and altough they both seem really pigmented in the picture I have seen some swatches on the lips and they are quite sheer. But I love the smell and shiny look they give to lips!
  • Microshadows are 11.20€ each, my favorite is Folklore although I love all of them.
  • Eye pencil costs 9.6€ and is really sof and pigmented, I can't tell you anything abut the wearing time yet. 
  • Ethnic collection should be already available in Make Up Stores and in Estonia also in ILU stores. I saw all of these products in Tartu Lõunakeskus ILU store in last week. ;) Of course I had to tip my fingers in, but I did not take any photos. 
In my press bag I had Cultural microshadow, Amaryllis lip gloss and eye pencil in Ice Blue. So keep your eyes open for swatches. 

Here is ethnic look from Estonian Make up store press event:

Make Up Store Summer 2012 collection is called Coral 
Summer collection is inspired by water, sea shells, starfish and coral reefs. So yet again really colorful collection. You can use sea themed accesories, not just makeup - this collection also has one makeup bag that is covered by pearls(hah, I do belive that they are not realy, otherwise it would be very pricey bag).
This comes with:
3 microshadows
1 lipstick
1 blush
1 lip gloss pot
1 eyedust
3 eye pencils (yes you can use them on your lips too, but pink soda is actually called eye pencil in my press materials). 
I took the product photos and look photo - and made it all into one big picture to get better overview ;) 

  • Lipstick costs 12.5 euros and is really pigmented bright pink - name goes really well with the tone. ;)
  • Microshadows cost 11.2€ each. 
  • Eye(lip) pencils cost 9.6€ each
  • Lip gloss pot (sorry I don't know the price, but it shoud be around 10€).
  • Eyedust ( sorry I don't know the price, but maybe it is the same as microshadows) 
  • Coral collection should be available from March
In my press bag I had Lipstick in Attitude, Lip gloss pot in Sea, eye pencil in water spring, Microshadows in Algae and Starfish. So yet again, if you want to see the swatches, then find the follow button and you will be among the first ones to see the swatches. 

Here is coral look from Estonian Make Up Store press event:

Bonus:
Nailpolishes aren't actually part of either collection, but since I am a nail polish girl here are some new colors from makeup store. Kaja won my heart instantly and I am defenitely going to purchase it!
They should become available on different times between february and april. Nail polishes cost 10.95€ each

So that is it for today! What do you think of these collections? Is there any colors that you could "die for"? 
Thank you for reading!

In Estonian:
Make Up Store tuleb sellel kevad-suvel välja kahe väga kihvti kollektsiooniga, mida teile täna veidi tutvustada tahan.
Esimene kollektsioon, millel nimeks Ethnic on juba poodides täiesti saadaval. Inspiratsiooni on ammutatud Muinas-Peruust ning säravatest mustritest. Tegemist on jõulisi ja julgeid värve sisaldava kollektsiooniga. Ainult selle kollektsiooni toodetest aga look'i kokku ei saa, kuna puudub põsepuna. Hinnad ja tooted leiate ülevalt.
Teine kollektsioon, millel nimeks Coral ilmub Eestis lettidele märtsis. Inspiratsioon selleks kollektsiooniks tuli erinevatest vee tekstuuridest ja peegeldustest, meritähtedest ning korallriffist.
Minu arvates on mõlema kollektsiooni ühisjooneks sinakad-rohekad lauvärvid ning julged huuled (vaatamata promofotodele, millel huuled üsna nude tooni tunduvad). Sisaldavad ju mõlemad kollektsioonid üks jõulist punast ning teine särtsakat roosat huulepulka.
Lähiajal näitan teile ka tooteid, mis seekord enda pressikotikesest leidsin. Seekord siis: 3 microshadow't: Algae, Starfish, Cultural; 1 huuleläige Amaryllis, 1 huulepulk Attitude, 2 silmapliiatsit Ice Blue ja Water spring ning üks huuleläige potsikukeses, millel nimeks Sea.
Kui tahate esimeste seas neid tooteid uudistada, siis soovitan kasutada follow nuppu, mille leiate paremalt. :) 
Ja ei, keegi ei käse mul seda postitust kirjutada, lihtsalt väga põnev on ka mul endal seda teieni tuua. ;) Natuke vaheldust mu näolapile ja lihtsalt värvidele nahal. :D

Päikest teie päeva, kevad pole enam kaugel!

FOTD: ELF Beauty clutch test run

Hello!

Today I went to see an opera with my mother and this seemed to be appropriate time to play with my new ELF Beauty Clutch. I used eyeshadows and peachy blush from that palette. :)

Make up store tinted eyeprimer and NYX jumbo pencil in Milk as a base.
On my lips is just Rimmel lasting finish lipstick in Airy Fairy. 
5 p.m.

Yes, I know that the foundation is a little bit dark, but in artificial light it is not noticeable. It´s the lightest one I have: loreal true match c2 rose vanilla. In search of lighter foundation I purchased new maybelline fit me foundation in 120, but it is actually even more darker and yellower than loreal true match. 

 10.30 pm
Sorry for my messy hair  and tired eyes.


As you can see, the color has not moved anywhere and if faded then only a little. Even the blush stayed on my cheeks pretty well, still noticeable after 5 and half hours.
So I am pretty impressed! :)

Thank you for reading!

In Estonian: 
Käisin täna emaga ooperis, vaatasime Maria Stuardat- vahel peab ju kultuurne olema. ;) Igaljuhul tundus hea aeg, et katsetada ELFi beauty clutchi.
Esimesed 2 pilti on tehtud kohe pärast meigi tegemist ehk kell 5 päeval, viimased 2 on tehtud aga just nüüd, pool h tagasi ehk pea 6 tundi hiljem. Pole midagi muud öelda, kui et olen positiivselt üllatunud. Tõesti on normaalsed lauvärvid nagu ma arvasingi. Pealekandmine oli ka lihtne, hajutamine läks ludinal. Praimerina kasutasin makeup store´i lauvärvi aluskreemi ja nyx jumbo silmapliiatsit toonis milk.
Põskedel kasutasin ka samast paletist pärit virsikukarva põsepuna, millel oli kerge kuldne läige.

Tundub, et võib rahule jääda. :)

Review ELF Beauty clutch

Hey, beauties!
Today I am reviewing ELF Beauty clutch for you. I just got it today, so for now, it is just going to be swatches. If you live in Europe, you can get it from eyeslipsface.co.uk and it costs £ 7.5 (around 10€). Here is link to the product, if you are interested: ELF Beauty Clutch

What it contains:
32 eyeshadows; 2 blushes; 1 bornzer;1 face shimmer; 1 brow powder + wax and 6 lipglosses - this is supposed to be complete beauty clutch so almost everything you need for a full face of makeup.

Beauty clutch in all it´s beauty :)
For reference, my hand is small/medium size :) 
Before anybody asks, those red spots are port wine stains, which I have had since birth- just discoloration (malformation of blood vessels)- nothing contagious and no they are not burn scars. I always joke that I chose medicine, because then I can cover them up with rubber gloves. In real life nobody notices my freaky hand :P 

So first off: eyeshadows really close up and swatches. I did not use any primer! ;)


 

Both photos are taken with flash, that means that the colors are more vibrant in real life. ;)


And now: face, lip and brow part of this palette:




What I like about it:
1. Color selection of eyeshadows - I love that this clutch mainly contains neutral-pink eyeshadows, spiced with 4 green and 4 lilac-blue colors.
2. Pigmentation of eyeshadows is quite decent, better than ELF 32 pc mini pro palette (I have it in cool, review coming up soon).
3. Nice blushes: one is more peachy and the other one nice pink color.
4. Sturdy, easy to open plastic package - yes, it might be cheap looking, but it does the job ;)
5. Big mirror

What I don't like:
1. Hated the lip colors, really sticky and almost no color to them, I don´t think I´ll be using these much.
2. Bronzer is too orange(not just undertones, it is really really orange), so it is not suitable for pale girls, especially for contouring. Also this contains a little bit of shimmer.
3. Face shimmer has grey-blue sheen - not really a "glow" I am looking for, I prefer warmer highlighters.
4. Brow powder and wax are really akward addition to this palette- you can't really put universal color for brows in a palette like this. This powder is too warm toned and brow wax is too dark for me to use on myself.
5. Darker eyeshadows are poorly pigmented so you will defenitely need separate black eyeshadow, if you want to create a smokey look.

So the eyeshadows are pretty decent, but does the idea that you only need one thing for your makeup really work with this product, then the answer is NO!
 Would I recommend it? Yes and no.If you want cheap, yet decent eyeshadows, then go for it. But if you expect more, then I would skip this palette. 
Since I really liked the color selection of eyeshadows, I will give this palette 4 out of 5 points.

Thank you for reading!

Disclaimer: This palette was sent to me for review purposes by eyeslipsface.co.uk. I am always honest in my reviews, no matter how I got the product.


In Estonian:

ELFi Uk leht saatis mulle proovimiseks 2 paletti, täne näete neist esimest, mille nimeks ELF beauty clutch. Maksab ta £7.5, osta saate siit, kui on huvi:  ELF Beauty Clutch. 
Idee poolest on tegemist kõik ühes paletiga, kuid kahjuks on huulevärvid minu meelest täiesti mõttetud- värvi ei anna peaaegu üldse ja väga kleepuva tekstuuriga on nad ka. Päiksepuuder on liiga oranž ning selle highlighteriga saate küll endale väga kahtlase hallikas-sinise sära. Minu meelest külm valge toon pole säraandjana väga kaunis - eelistan kergelt sooja alatooniga highlightereid.

Tore kui leidub keegi, kellele need kulmutoonid sobivad - minu jaoks on puuder liiga sooja tooniga ning kulmukreem(peaks vist pm vaha osa mängima) on liiga tume. Nii et seda osa paletist ma ka kasutada ei saa.
Lauvärvidega olen küll rahul, kui kõige tumedamad toonid välja arvata. Minu meelest on ELF suuri edusamme teinud- viimati proovitud 32 psc everyday paletist. Review leiate siit: http://beautyfromliz.blogspot.com/2011/05/elf-32-pc-eyeshadow-palette-everyday.html

Väga meeldib mulle lauvärvide toonivalik- mõnusad neutraalsed pruunid, beežid, virsikukarva, roosad ja lillad toonid. Sekka on lisatud ka veidi rohelist-sinist, mis õnneks ei domineeri, vaid tasakaalustab üldist värvigammat hästi. 
Põsepunad on ka kasutatavad, hea on see, et paletist leiab ühe sooja ja teise veidi külmemat tooni põsepuna. Annab rohkem võimalusi looke kombineerida.
Tegelikult on ju selle raha eest toodet küllalt, nii et kui ikka üldse pole veel meigikollektsioonis lauvärve ja rahaga ka priisata pole, siis soovitan beauty clutchi poole kiigata. Kui otsite aga kõik ühes toodet, siis ärge seda ostke!

Valentine's day nail art ideas

Hey!
Today I felt like sharing a bunch of nail pictures with you. Since Valentine's day is coming up, here is some of my favorites.

1. Lets start with the easiest and most classical way. Just use a top coat with pink hearts and you are good to go. (found this picture on Fashion is my drug fanpage on facebook)
2. Why always hearts, roses deserve the attention too!!! (same source
You can use Konad or other stamping plate if your hand is not that steady to draw tiny roses on your nails. 
3. If you study medicine like I do, then you might find this design interesting. For everybody with non medical knowledge, this is normal ECG - your heartbeat. Update: source is really a nice nail blog: http://cindysnails.tumblr.com/

4. You can use pink and red shades for water marbling. Source I belive this isn't acutally water marbling, but  it looks really similar. 

And last two are my own nail art designs from last year: (yes I know these look kind of ugly, ofc I cleaned up later - I think I have improved quite a bit ;) )
1. You don't HAVE to use red and pink combo, some periwinkle blue will bring your nails alive.
 2. You can use sponging when you want to melt 2 colors together, I just added a heart in my ring finger and ready to go :)

Thank you for reading and sorry for not posting my own new designs- another exam is on Monday and at the moment I am at University Library studying medical genetics.
