Rimmel Wake me Up Concealer Review

Hello beauties!

Μα πειτε μου! Ποσο υπέροχες μερες ειναι αυτές οι τελευταιες του Οκτωβρίου;

Ανυπομονω για το τριημερο που ειναι στο κατωφλι μας, για βόλτες, ήλιο, καφέδες, φίλους και γιατι οχι, και ενα τελευταίο μπανιο στη θάλασσα!
Που θα πατε; Τι θα κανετε;

Εγω σημερα θα σας πω για ενα προιόν που θα φωτίσει το τριημερο σας!

Rimmel Wake me Up Concealer



Τα προιόντα Rimmel τα ξερουμε όλες. Δυστυχως δεν κυκλοφορούν στην Ελλαδα αλλα πλεον εχουμε μάθει να κανουμε τις αγορές μας online.



Ετσι λοιπόν μαζι με τα Wet & Wild Mega Last Matte Lipisticks από το Beauty Joint παρήγγειλα αυτο το υπέροχο concealer που ειχα ακουσει τόσα πολλά.

Θα ξεκινήσω λέγοντας οτι δεν έχω μαυρους κύκλους και δε χρειάζομαι κάλυψη και γι’αυτό τα περισσότερα concealers στη συλλογή μου φέρνουν πιο πολύ σε highlighter.

Παρόλα αυτά, παντα φοράω κάτι κάτω απο τα μάτια μου για φωτεινότητα.

Έτσι περίμενα να ειναι και αυτο και δεν έπεσα εξω.

Είναι ενυδατικό,  φωτεινό,  με ελαφριά κάλυψη, δε «μπαίνει» στις ρυτίδες και κρατάει αρκετα καλά.

Έχει ωραιο κλασσικό sponge applicator που το κανει εύκολο να απλώσετε κατευθείαν το προιόν κάτω από τα μάτια σας.

Η σύνθεσή του είναι ελαφριά, απλώνεται πολύ καλά και με τα δάχτυλα αλλά και με ενα μικρό stipple brush που χρησιμοποιώ εγω.



Το χρησιμοποιω εδω και 3 εβδομάδες και εχει γίνει αγαπημενο μου, πρωί και βράδυ!

Μόλις το βάζω, νιώθω αμέσως ανανεωμένη, ξύπνια, οπως λεει και το ονομά του και φρέσκια!

Η απόχρωση, αν και δε φαίνεται καλά στη φωτογραφία ειναι η Very Fair/Light και η τιμή του μεσω ιντερνετ ηταν περιπου στα 6 ευρω. 
Πολύ καλή αναλογικά με τη πολύ καλή ποιότητά του.

Πως σας φαίνεται; Το εχετε δοκιμάσει;

Ποιό ειναι το αγαπημένο σας concealer;

as always,

stay healthy & beautiful

Lavera Cosmetics Review

Hey summer beauties!

How many of you have started to look around for natural cosmetics that are actually good for your skin?

Skincare that actually feeds your skin?  I say yes.

It is not only the latest trend but also has become an actual skin need due to environmental changes.

Well, I am one of you and the moment I got the chance to try out some Lavera Greece products.... I was thrilled.

Lavera is a well known cosmetics brand for me but not quite often reached in Greece.

Thomas Haase started the company in 1987 due to his need of alternative, soft and natural for his problematic skin. And he did it.

He created a brand of natural cosmetics with:

-          100% certified natural plant ingredients & organic plant extracts and oils.
-          100% natural fragrances
-          100% paraben, synthetic preservatives free.
-          100% silicon, paraffin & mineral oil free.
-          Dermatologically tested
-          Not animal tested

That sounds good, doesn’t it?

Let me show you some of the brand’s products.



Clockwise:

-Exfoliant Wash with organic wild rose extract*
It is a gentle exfoliant wash that diminishes the appearance of wrinkles and offers your skin an intensive yet soft deep cleansing. Contains organic grape, peach, apricot that sends away the dead cells and gives a glowing complexion

-Liquid EyeLiner in brown*

It is a rather “runny” eyeliner, ideal for sensitive eyes or those with eye contacts.
Ideal for everyday use or hiding the band of your eyelashes due to its tiny thin brush.
Ophthalmological & nickel tested

-Concealer Stick Abdeck Stift*

It is a concealer in a stick. Its coverage is ok, not full and if applied with a small brush in the area needed gives a flawless result. Set it with powder to stay all day!

-Natural Concealer in light*

Well, this concealer was a surprise for me. I haven’t seen anything alike. It is creamy yet feels mousse like. I know, strange!
It applies like heaven but the coverage is the one of a highlighter, not a concealer. As I don’t have dark circles, this has become my new favorite thing!

-Lip Balm SPF10*

It is a natural water resistant protection for lips with SPF10. Filled with organic oils & moisturizing factors prevent your lips from drying out.
The only thing I don’t like is the fact that it shows off a little white on your lips (see swatch below)

-Foot Cream with organic macadamia & healing clay*

Now that summer is here and the need to moisturize our feet tends to be bigger, we are searching for a fast absorbing foot cream to ease our lives.
This one is all the above. Infused with organic macadamia oil to nourish and protect your skin and healing clay that works against excessive sweating & minimizes odor.



 from top: liquid eyeliner in brown, natural concealer in light, concealer stick, lip balm


So, have you ever tried Lavera Cosmetics? What is your opinion?
If you use other natural cosmetics please tell me all about it!

as always,
stay healthy & beautiful

Maybelline SuperStay 24hr Review


Hello beauties!

I hope you are well and prepared because summer is getting closer and closer!

As most of us do, we tend to change our skin routine because of the weather changes and the temperature rise. We start from our cleanser, our moisturizer and our foundation.

I will start from the last. The foundation. 

Now that the weather is getting hotter and hotter we are searching for a light yet with good coverage, durability, staying power and SPF protection! You think it’s too much? No.
Most cosmetics brands are aware of our needs and the conditions change and they adapt. And evolve.

This is what happened with Maybelline. 
They created a modern foundation with many benefits.

Maybelline Superstay 24hr micro-flex stretch formula foundation with SPF 19
&
Maybelline Superstay 24hr Concealer



Let me start from the foundation.


It has one of the most velvety consistency I have ever felt in a foundation.
It applies very easily giving you the time to work it in your skin and once you are done blending it, within 2-3 minutes it transforms from liquidy to powdery, giving a really really nice finish. 
I have combination/oil skin and it does give me a matte finish that stays without touch ups for a 3-4 hours. 




But I really want to say something here. If you have combination/oily or even very oily skin, you should know that there is no magic potion/foundation/powder that will take away the shine for the entire day. Seriously. The only thing we can do is to always use a good primer, try different foundations for oily skin in order to see which one sits well on our skin, powder and take that powder with us in order to touch up when needed. Just saying, so you know. 

Back to the review. 

Its coverage is medium but you can build it up, although if built a lot can look a little cakey and make your pores more visible than before.

It comes in a 30ml glass bottle and has a pump which is a very good thing for our hygiene.
As declared by its name, it has very good durability and does not fade away or slide off your face.

It has an SPF 19 which is something really good if you are wearing this as your morning foundation. It's not enough, you have to use a regular sunscreen underneath but an SPF is always a plus! Unless you will be photographed!!

I gambled and ordered it online in the color 021 Nude. It is not the perfect shade but suits quite well on my NW25 skin but it is a little pink which I hate. I make sure I mix it with a hint of a lighter yellowy foundation and blend it all the way down to the neck.

As I was quite happy with the foundation I thought I would try the concealer as well.



I first tried it on my under eye area. That didn’t work very well.
Even though I don’t have visible dark circles and don’t need to cover something, I want to put something there!
But my skin there is rather thin and this product is a teeny tiny heavy for an undereye concealer, at least for me.
But as I noticed that it has a quite good coverage I tried it on my blemishes and minor flaws that need extra concealing. It was great. It covers up anything you have, although you have to put little by little because it will cake and blend really well around the edges with your brush.
I like it very much. Once it set with a powder, stays on really well and for at least 6-8 hours.
I am really happy that the last years drugstore brands come up with such quality cosmetics for a good price. We can try out new things without making our bank account to bleed!

Well that’s it from me!
Have you tried the Maybelline SuperStay 24hr?
What is your opinion if you have?

stay & beautiful

Mac & Sephora Eye Brighteners! Lighten Up Your Eyes!



Hello everyone! 

How have you been doing?

Is the season transition makes you feel a bit sleepless and tired? 
And the worse…does it shows in your eyes? 

Well if this is the case, boy I have good news for you! 

Eye Brighteners! 

If anyone of you has not heard of them before, let me give you a heads up.
Eye brighteners are light textured colored cremes that go very smoothly under the eyes. 

Their main goal is not to cover your dark circles but to brighten and light reflect the under eye area, creating a more fresh and clean appearance.

I don’t have any dark circles so this is perfect for me. But it is also useful for the ones that have, by using a light layer of corrector (peachy), concealer (beige) and brightener (light pink) which you will success by applying a small amount of each to have a natural highlighted under eye area.

The ones I have and use are:

 MAC Prep + Prime Highlighter Pen in Bright Forecast & the
 Sephora Smoothing & Brightening Concealer in 03 light.










As you can see from the photos the one is really yellowy and the other is rather light pink.
The yellow tone is more suitable for darker skins and the light pink one is perfect for fair skins.

I use to mix them together and I end up having the perfect highlighting shade for my skin.
It is almost like second skin. 




I bought both of them on sale so I am not sure what their price is but I can tell you approximately that the MAC is about 20-22 euro and the Sephora is about 10-12 euro.
 
Their quality is equally good even though there is a big price gap! 

So, what do you think? Do you use eye brighteners?
If so, which one? I am open to suggestions!

Stay healthy & beautiful!

U see it? Conceal it!!

Hello my beauties!

How are you? I know it's been a long time but  I am back with a hot issue! 

Concealers!

They are as important as foundation. You have to find the one that suits your skin type and needs.
Every girl should have two concealers. One lighter than their skin for the undereye area and one similar to your skin tone to hide any blemishes or imperfections.

Below I am showing you my concealers which are not only two but what can I do? I am only a girl!






Let's talk about them one by one.
From up left:

1. Kryolan Erase Deckstift Neutralizer
 It is a rather heavy green concealer that is suitable to neutralise intense redness to the face & body. 
 Above this you use your regural concealer to give your skin healthy look.

2. Kryolan Erase Deckstift X1
 At first when I saw this concealer I thought I could never use it as it does not look like skin colour but it is a  yellow based creme crayon that is perfect for highlighting any areas you want. Avoid big quantity on the face. Kryolan are meant to be stage makeup therefore rather heavy.

3. Vichy Dermablend ultra corrective foundation cream-stick #light clair 13
 As you can tell by its name it is a foundation on stick. But as you all know, stick foundations are drier than the liquid ones, therefore heavier. But I always wanted to try the Vichy Dermablend and as I do not have that of a bad skin I preffered the stick foundation as a face concealer to cover up any blemishes.
I like it very much, it does't move a lot but needs good blending.

4. Clinique Even Better Concealer #natural
It is a rather new member to the Even Better family and it is here to stay. it is super creamy, yet stable. Blends really well on your skin and it is great for undereye concealer, if skin is not very dry, as well for covering imperfections.

5. Make Up For Ever Camouflage Cream # 17
It is another green camouflage creme which I prefer using on the face, instead of the Kryolan, as it is a little bit lighter and is buildable. I have occassionaly red spots in my face and this creme is perfect to neautralise everything.

6. Make Up For Ever Camouflage Cream # 20
This is an orangy colour camouflage creme which is used to neutralise the blueness of the dark circles under your eyes. As it is intense you use it carefully and build it. Above this you put your preffered undereye concealer to cover the orange and brighten the area.

7. Clinique Line Smoothing concealer # 03 moderately fair
This is an all time classic concealer. It is light weighted, moisturising and ideal for the undereye area. It is perfect for your everyday concealer but not very good for covering up any blemishes and imperfections as it does not has a very good staying power.

8. Clinique All About Eyes Concealer # 01 light neutral
This is maybe my favourite undereye concealer. It is neither light or heavy and a little goes a long way.
It is moisturising and has a very good staying power. I use it for my eyes only and not the face.

Well, that is all! 
I always want to try a new concealer so I will probably be back with more of them!

Which is your favourite concealer and how many do you have?

Stay healthy & beautiful
