Favorites of April

Hi, my dear readers! Today I'll show you my favorites of April 2014. this is cosmetic products, clothing and music, what I love in april :-)

Cosmetics.


Garnier Skin Naturals BB Cream

I like this BB cream for everyday make-up, it's so light, but concealing is really minimal and I use concealers to my imperfections


L'Oreal Mat Magique

Good tonal foundation, heavy on fingers, but this foundation applies to my face really thin layer, I like it, but this cream not for all-day wearing


Max Factor Creme Puff

This is my favorite about two years. This is not tonal product, just compact powder with soft consistence


Max Factor Mastertouch concealer

Perfect silicone-based concealer, really good for all-day make up. I have very visible dark circles and this product really helps me!


Max Factor 2000 Calorie mascara

I love this mascara and I buy this product from my 15th. Really black with classic brush


Clinique Lash Power Mascara

My choise for lower lashes, because on my upper lashes this mascara looks insufficiently visible and black


Yves Rocher Couleur Nature eye-liners brown and pink

These ones is my favorite products of Yves Rocher and pink eye-liner is an amaze for me! My tired eyes look realy healthy with line on my waterline


Yves Rocher Eyeliner

I use black eyeliner and I can't say that is a good or bad product, fine, but not perfect


Rimmel Color Show-off lipstick

Oh, Rimmel doing my favorite lipsticks, I love it so much! Everyday I use matte lipstick 020 Shake-up pink, so long-lasting, even if I'm eating with this lipstick, it stays on my lips!


Natura Siberica Neutral Shampoo for sensitive head-skin

Good shampoo from Russia, without SLS, only with organic components. I had serious dandruff, when I used shampoos with SLS, and this shampoo doing really good work!


Vitex Emulsion Make-up Remover 

Really good product from Belarus for make-up removing, I apply this emulsion to my skin and doing circle moves, then I use cotton pads for removing emulsion and tonal foundation


Yves Rocher Pur Bleuet Cornflower

Cool thing for removing eye-make-up, but I have no idea about blue color in this product, many people talking about harm of blue pigments in cosmetics.


Clear Line Lotion-tonic for normal and combined skin

Perfect tonic for me! Composition of this tonic identical with tonics of Garnier and cost of Clear Line tonic lower about 70%

Clothing.



7/8 Blue jeans with floral ornament (this is not my legs, this is a model :-)


Orange black/white striped jumper


Mark Shagal 100 Cats scarf


Sport shoes with snake skin design (2 pairs of shoelases - acid green and white)

Music.

DIY: Easter egg decorating

Hello, everybody!
Today I'll show you, how to make simple and creative decor for easter egg.
I saw this method in russian morning show "Good morning" ("Доброе утро") and I really like it! 

We need:
- Paper napkin
- Boiled egg
- Egg-white
- Paper circle

I tape a piece of magazin cover and prepare egg and napkin.



And prepare egg-white.


Just apply egg-white to egg shell and put napkin on it. This method consists in a way like in decoupage technique, we glue paper with ornaments with egg-white, which as a glue in this way.


This decor will dry, and now we have easter egg with decor :-)
So simple and beautiful!

Good luck and Happy Easter Day!

Rating of tonal foundations and BB-creams. Week challenge

Hi, guys!
Today I'll show you my personal rating of tonal foundations and BB-creams.
My skin is combined, dry on cheeks and oily on T-zone.
Let's begin!
I tested 7 foundations and making my rating.

1. Eva Mosaic Skin Fitness

This foundation positioned for skin 35+. I really don't know, which components in tonal foundation make skin for looking younger and I'm don't belive in this, thinking this is marketing things.
This foundation so solid and lasting. 
This is Russian brand.

2. L'Oeal Mat Magique

This foundation almost perfect. Almost, because on dry zones of my skin Mat Magique looks too dry.
But my T-zone looks really nice. I use 03 tone, like in picture.

3. Garnier BB Cream

Contradictory BB Cream. This is not solution for oily zones, because foundation on it stay very visibly after 1 hour. But at all Garnier BB Cream really good.

4. Maybelline BB Cream

This is my choise for summer. This cream so liquid and light, perfect for young skin.
I'm bought second tube, but I'm was wrong with color, now my skin looks porcelain and a little bit of orange pigment looks really visible.

5. Clarins Extra Firming Foundation

"Good job!" This words I can say about this foundation. Even taking into account that I have one tone and this tone so dark for my skin, my skin looks absolutely perfect! 
One minus of this product is high cost. 42$ for me - very expencive.

6. Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse

Perfect for winter. Very solid, long-lasting and color riched foundation. One little minus - if you make mistake with color, it will be visible on your skin. I use this product every winter.

7. Ballet Tonal Foundation with Lecithin

I remember this cream from USSR times, all women used this foundation, because in USSR we didn't have another analogs and products. I'm bought this cream in supermarket for my test, cost of this product ~0,6$.
"Ballet" stay really good and long-lasting, for all skin types. I'm pleasantly surprised! But this foundation not for summer.

My rating:


I'm rate all products by 5-point scale, and you see, no one product haven't negative rating :-)


Have a nice day! Good luck!
