Rimmel Alarm lipstick

We will have a theme party this weekend and I'll be sailor girl :D Sailor girl needs bright RED lips, right? I have one bright red lippolish (BE Buxom) but it just feels so terrible, I decided to invest and bougt Alarm from Rimmel ;) This was about 7 € here and in fact the quality feels very good. It's pigmented, feels moisturizing, not too pricey but maybe the taste/smell is not the best... But I think the only scents I like are vanilla or toffee :D

edit: After using this in a party, I must say that this is SO GOOD lipstick! It lasted very well and wasn't drying. I think I have to take closer look at the more natural colors now too.

Menemme vappuna teemajuhliin ja pukeudun merimiestytöksi :D Tarvitsen toki punaisen huulipunan, eikös? Yksi punainen minulla onkin (BE:n Buxom) mutta se tuntuu ihan hirveältä huulilla, joten päätin investoida Rimmelin Alarm-sävyn ;) Hinta oli vajaat 7€, mikäli oikein muistan, ja laatu tuntuu varsin mainiolta! Pigmenttiä löytyy, tuntuu kosteutta…

Sydän rinnassa, mustavalkoinen ;)

The topic comes from that (not good :D) song about the ice hockey team I told you yesterday. As I promised here is my second look with white, black & gold. The (nearly) black Aromaleigh pigment I used today was so much easier to blend than that MAC yesterday :-O.

Postauksen nimi tulee toki tästä (ei erityisen hyvästä ;D) laulusta:



Kyseessä siis toinen musta-valko-kulta meikki, ensimmäinen on täällä, lopetan Tepsi-teeman tähän :DIhan käsittämättömän paljon helpompi oli häivyttää tätä Aromaleighin lähes mustaa pigmenttiä kuin eilistä MACiä :-O

Trind Caring Color

I haven't been interested of Trind Caring Colors before but now I saw two very nice colors, a turquoise and a chartreuse. I just got this turquoise CC132 first but I really like this SO much, I think I have to get that other color too :D In fact I wanted OPI Shrek nail polishes but I just heard that Transdesign doesn't offer international flat rate shipping anymore so I won't get OPIs for a while. Prices in Finland are just too high :(

This was so easy to apply and it was nearly opaque after one coat, I used 2 for the photo and the cap was very nice & easy to use! So I wasn't very suprised when I found this article:
Trind Caring Color tested “best polish” in Finland.
One of the most popular Finnish women magazines “Me Naiset” (We, women) recently published its independent nail polish test. Out of a considerable number of leading nail polish brands, Trind was chosen “best polish” and received a rating of 4,5 out of 5 stars. According to the test panel, the main qualif…

Chanel Rouge Allure Laque 77 "Santal"

I got Chanel Rouge Allure lip laquer from my mom and I really like this lovely lip color :) This looks like lipgloss but it's definitely more like lipstick. Feels buttery and soft (reminds me of Fyrinnae's lip lustres but Chanel is thicker), scent is not strong and the color is opaque, so you don't need much. For me this no 77 "Santal" is not nude but very easy to wear and natural peachy color with golden shimmer. The aplicator feels very nice and the tube (6ml) is of course very stylish.

The price is high... Worth it? It really is VERY nice but I still think it's too pricey. I just like to buy stuff that is more affordable :D You can read another review of this product from Lipstick Rules, we seem to have similar taste when it comes to lippies. LOL

Sain tuliaisina myös Chanel Rouge Allure-"huulilakan" ja onhan tämä ihana :) Pakkaus näyttää huulikiillolta mutta on selvästi enemmän huulipuna kuitenkin. Tuntuu pehmoiselta ja voimaiselta (Fyrinnaen Lip L…

Stardust EOTDs

Here are some EOTDs & FOTDs with Stardust pigments. I've really liked the quality and colors are lovely too. The rest of my swatches are coming, just had to post these first or I'll forget what I used ;)

Muutamia meikkejä kera Stardustin. Laatu on tosiaan erinomainen ja värit ihanat. Loput swatchit ovat kyllä tulossa, pakko vain postata nämä ensin etten ihan unohda mitä tuotteita käytin :)

Seaglass-Total Package:
Seaglass is matte and when I started to apply it, I was almost sure I was going to hate this look. But in fact it's one of my favorites :D I don't like mattes that much but those work better with shimmery eyeshadows.

Seaglass on matta ja laittaessani sitä luomelle olin melko varma, että inhoa koko meikkiä. Mutta ei sentään, on itseasiassa yksi suosikeistani! En yleensä matta-sävyistä pidä mutta kimaltavampien seurana ovat ihan jees.









face:
-Lily Lolo Blondie foundation +Dreamworld Minerals Inanna base color (to darken the foundation)
-Aromaleigh Coquille Nectarine…

Icon We Care eyeshadow trio

My mom doesn't wear makeup but finally she wanted to get some products for her too :) I'll give enough brushes and mineral foundation for her (we have excatly the same coloring) but I think mineral powders (blushes, eyeshadows & bronzer) are just too difficult for her, maybe later when she is really uses this stuff. LOL. So I bought some Icon We Care products for her.

Äitini ei meikkiä käytä mutta nyt vihdoinkin innostui asiasta ja päätin hankkia hänelle hieman uusia meikkejä. Siveltimet ja mineraalimeikkipohja löytyykin valikoimistani (ollaan tismalleen saman värisiä) mutta muut mineraalituotteet ovat ehkä hänelle liian hankalat näin alkuun ainakin... Parempi aloittaa niin helpoilla tuotteilla, ettei käyttö lopu heti kättelyssä ;) Ostin siis muutamia Icon We Care tuotteita hänellekin.

Magnetic eyes trio "perfect brown":




What a pigmentation :D LOL. I really do not like it at all but in fact I think this will perfect for my mom. She wanted a very natural eyeshadow.

YSL Parisienne

Oh, I got a perfume from my mom. She is so sweet. *heart* I really like Parisienne by Yves Saint Laurent, the bottle is gorgeous too. This smells like roses but with attitude :D

Sain laivatuliaisina äidiltäni YSL:n Parisienne-tuoksun ja on tämä ihana! Pullokin on niin kaunis... Tuoksussa on ruusua mutta asenteen kera, ei mikään hempeä tuoksu :D Alla vielä tuoksun mainos, joka on mielestäni IHAN hirveä.

"This fragrance YSL appeared on the market in 2009, romantically named Parisienne, which implicates its Paris fragrance antecedents, as well as its edited bottle design. Besides the official notes of Damascus rose, violet, peony, cranberry, patchouli, vetiver, musk and sandalwood, it also contains urban and bold aromas of vinyl and lacquer, reminding us of the special scent of a cosmetic bag, make – up and high-heels on the hot city asphalt." from Fragrantica
