Beauty Autumn/winter by GB

Nails! My September was full of fun with my nails. I painted each one a different color. I did similar colors, and I made as rainbow-y as possible. I painted one had with one color, one with another. When I knew I’ll have to use my hands a lot, I pained them all the same. BUT because they are so long now, they have to be painted at all times. They need all the support they can get, and because it takes them ages to get to this point, they are discolored by now. Every nail different, one hand one color,the other another…

Right now, I have green on one and red on the other, with one (different) accent nail of the other color on each hand. And some are covered in sparkles, and some not. Before, I went weeks with just clear nail polish.

Bun maker – H& M for 4 euros. I LOVE it!! I love how the bun makes me feel like, and I wore it the other day to a performance, and while siting, I met  a friend, and I wasn’t recognised 😉 He never saw me with nice teeth and then glamorous hair, it felt good. I would like to add that a very good trick is to make  a few trial runs before you do it. Try to find a hair elastic that will secure the hair after you have the bun on – so when you start putting in pins, it stays in place. But it has to be just the right size, if it’s too lose, it won’t hold.

Hair elastic with a ring, you clasp the ring around the ponytail and make it look more glamorous 🙂

UBU Bronze bombshell – bronze and shimmer brush. AWESOME. And now they have a “wash me first” label on the packaging. It makes me feel like I know where to put bronzer on and not look completely stupid wearing it.

Revlon eyeshadow quad – Colorstay 16, steel impressions (beige, gray, green, sparkling black). The first two don’t really suit me, I tried to wear the grey/steely one but I guess I still have to find a shade that works with my coloring.

Sleek 2012 glory palette – my first online shopping!!!!! From my country, and it was a sale 🙂 I am so happy with the palette I chose, it’s my first ever Sleek palette, and it has both worlds – it has a neutrals row, and a colorful row. So it’s very usable! I haven’t tried all the shadows yet, but they are famous for they quality, so I have no fear.

Avon – color trend eyeshadow duo in sunburst  – now see, this colors suit me wonderful!the beige is so warm, I use it as a highlighter in my brow bone.

Alverde (natural cosmetic by DM) – Creme blush in 04, pink rose. ((video in german, she starts talking about ut at 5.46 – and she doesn’t like it; I am the opposite 🙂 ) Also, another thing I got because it was on sale. But I love it! I only use it on the apples of my chicks, and it’s easy to work with, I don’t look like a clown, and it’s blendable, so I only tap around some more and it looks dewy and pink. Good! The lady in the video says it sparkles – well, mine doesn’t. At all. And she says the brush doesn’t pick it up, but I never used it with a brush, only my finger. And yes, it is hard, but I find that it makes me control how much I pick up on my finger; it gets warmer with body heat and than transfers nicely.

Essence I love stage eyeshadow base – I got it because it’s dirt cheap and Anna talks about it all the time. I haven’t use it all that much, but I am happy with it thus far! I was surprised to see it’s colored, somehow I thought a base would be clear – but when i think of it, some people have very dark lids, and they use primers to also even out the colors, not just for staying power. It was like a light bulb moment 😉

Sleek Luminous pressed powder in LPP 01. Not so happy with this one. I need to look at  a couple of tutorials on you tube to see if I am doing something wrong, bu I tried the sponge and the kabuki brush, and am not luminous at all. It makes my skin feel dry, but after reading reviews, it looks like I am the only person in the world not seeing the sparkle and to say it’s drying.

I also have two new Avon lipsticks; the glazewear in peach silk – it smells wonderful it glides nicely, but it’s watery and I gave it to my  mom  – she treats it as a tinted balm. The other I can’t find right now so I don’t know the name; it looks purple, but it’s more pinkish in real life and  on the pictures. It’s also a bit too sparkly. But even though it’s not a long wear product, it does stay for awhile, and the color is strong.

I also got super duper ohlala fancy Cristian Dior hydra life moisturizer for my birthday, but I am waiting to use up my previous one (I would get 10 of this for one CD!) before I start using it…I am thinking to use it only at nice, because it’s so expensive, and the skin regenerates itself in the night and all that, so I guess its best to offer it the best…I hope it will suit me, it would be really funny if it wouldn’t !! Sad, not funny. But funny too.

Whew! I know I have more, because I am in the drugstore weekly, but this is the most important stuff (and all I can remember right now 🙂
