May favorites

So I know that I’m a little bit  late for this post, but I thought better late than never! This is my first favorites post, and if I’m being honest I won’t do them often because I really don’t have that much new things every month.(too expensive for me!)

1. Deo from Färg och Förändring. This deodorant is so good! It has really good ingredients and it works as well. The smell is very girly and fruity and I wear this when I’m going to work, to school or when I go shopping and it stays one. I don’t think it will work when you workout but you’re supposed to sweat when you exercise! Not smell like a flower. I will definitly buy this one again. There are other scents and you can buy it here

2. Naked Lips lipbalm. I wrote about this lip balm here and I still like it. You can read about what I wrote there. 

3. Vapour Organic Beauty Aura Multi-Use-Blush in Tender. This is a sheer formula and normally I don’t use blush but I this one changed my mind. I love the baby pink color, it gives a nice healthy glow to the cheeks and it’s the first baby pink color that I can wear on my lips that doesn’t make me look ill. I also tried to apply it on my eyes but it didn’t show up the way I wanted. This is a sample and I’ve used it many times already (and I got much left.) The only thing I don’t like about this one is the price.

4. Pai Skincare Camomille and Rosehip Calming Day Cream. So I don’t use it as a day cream but as a night cream. It makes my skin glowy and look a lot smoother. It has the same effects as Argan oil but this calms my skin more and takes away the redness better. It was a sample and I used it for two weeks almost every night! So a little goes a long way. This product is for those who have sensitive skin.

5. Organic Rosewater. I wrote about this product in my mini-haul and you can read it here. This is my new holy grail. I use this everyday, in my hair and on my face and it works amazing. I prep my face with it before moisturizer and I set my makeup with it. I also like to spray it in my hair and it both gives volume and moisture. If you haven’t tried rosewater, try it! You won’t regret it,

Two Lily Lolo products

I purchased two things from Lily Lolo a week ago, a bronzer in the colour Wakiki and an eye pencil in black. I’ve used them both a couple of times and I thought I would do a review on them. Lily Lolo is a British company who makes natural makeup and their products are free from parabens, synthetic parfumes and dyes. The bronzer was £13.49 and the eye pencil £6.99 so they are not expensive at all, if you compare it to other companies. You can read more about them here and look at their products.

So first about the bronzer: I bought the lightest shade, Wakiki. They also have two darker colours. The bronzer is shimmery and has a yellow undertone. You can use it to contour, you just put it where the sun naturally hits your face (your nose, forehead and cheeckbones) Personally, I would have ordered a darker shade, because it was too light for me to use in the summer, but it will probably work in the winter when I’m more pale. Still, it went on smoothly and I could easily blend it. It looked good and I highly recommend it to people who have a light skin tone! As you can see on the picture below it almost blends in with my skin tone and I like the bronzer to be a little bit darker.  Now I’m thinking about buying the darker colour, because beside the colour I liked the bronzer.

My second purchase was an eye pencil in black. Since I don’t own an all natural eye pencil I really wanted this one to work. It goes on very smoothly, almost too smoothly. It can transfer on your lower waterline if you put it on your upper waterline and it easily smudges. If your going for a smoky eye kind of effect than this eye pencil will probably work for you cause it’s easy to blend. When I use it I really have to be careful so it won’t smudge or go anywhere. The colour is really black so that is a big plus, but I’m kind of sad that I have to be so careful. It’s hard to use and you should not buy this if you are new to makeup. I will still use it, but I will not buy it again.

All in all, I got a good impression of Lily Lolo and I will buy more of their products! 🙂 I’ve been looking at their blushes and lip glosses. Have anyone tried any of their products? If so, what do you think?  

Wanted; BB cream

There are few products that I’m looking for but have not yet found. It’s hard to know what to buy when shopping online. Especially when searching for natural products. One of those things are BB-Cream.

I’m looking for a natural BB-cream that is not too expensive and contains good ingredients. It shouldn’t be too oily because I want to wear it in the summer. It should also have SPF 15 or higher and a good coverage but not as much as a foundation.

Image

Here are a few bb-creams that I’ve been thinking of purchasing. Juice Beauty CC cream, 100% pure tinted moisturizer, Iroisie Soin Parfait Ultimate BB cream, Luxsit BB cream and REN satin perfection BB cream. I’ve read that these products doesn’t have so good coverage but the ingredients are good. The only thing stopping me from buying one of these are the prize.

Are there any products you are searching for but haven’t found? Comment down below and maybe we can help each other 🙂

Zuii Organic Certified Organic Flora Lipstick

So I decided to take some pictures while wearing the lipsticks I wrote about here. Just a little reminder, the pigment are not as strong because I used a lip pencil. Also, you can see that the three nudes Brown Sugar, Natural and Nude looks very similar.

I hope these pictures helped you. I am still not sure which color I should buy! I love all the colors! I can only buy one because they are pretty expensive (29.95 dollars) Which one do you think I should buy? 🙂

Finding the perfect nude

Hi there! Today I will write about the Zuii Organic’s Certified Organic Flora lipsticks, as I promised. There are many different shades to choose. I purchased seven samples, four of the shades are nude, and 3 are peach/pink. I’m searching for the perfect nude lipstick, and I think that I might have found it. 🙂 The texture is creamy, but I still like to put a lipbalm underneath. I have to exfoliate before I put the lipstick on, otherwise if I have some dry skin it can show up. I used a lip pencil, and the pigment was pretty good, and I’m sure if you put the lipstick on directly from the tube, the pigment will be stronger. These green lipsticks are certified organic and all the shades are really beautiful. The finish is matte and that’s what I’m looking for when it comes to nude shades. The ingridient are also very good, for instance sunflower oil, castor oil and jojoba oil! The lipsticks smell good, just like flowers.

So this is what the samples look like. The amount is different in all the samples, some of them had a lot of the product and some had really little.

Image

These are the peachy / pinky shades.

And these are the nudes.

So here are the swatches!

1. Brown Sugar is a lovely nude and the shade suits me well. It’s a pinky- nude shade but has a brown hint to it. I am very pale right now so it will suit you if you have pale skin like me, and it will also look good on faire to medium skin tones. It might be a little bit pale for darker skin tones. It has more of a cool undertone but it doesn’t make me look sick, and believe me, I have a problem when it comes to finding a nude that doesn’t make me look ill. I think this will look good for an everyday look or a night time look (like a smokey eye)

2. Natural. This one is very similar to the brown sugar, but it’s a little bit darker, more brown-ish and has a warmer undertone. I think this will look good in the summer when I’m tanned. It also looks good right now when I’m pale but it’s a liiiittle bit too dark for being a nude. Still, I would use it in an everyday look because it’s a beatiful shade.

3. Nude is more pink than the other nudes and the color is very pretty. It reminds me a little bit of the shade that Lana del Ray often uses.

 

4. Clay is a peachy nude shade with an orange tint. I think it will look good in summer, but it doesn’t suit me now when I’m pale. Of all the nude shades this one was my least favorite. I would probably call this one a peachy-orangey color over a nude, but that is my personal opinion. Some people might disagree.

5. Sheer peach is a beautiful pinky-peach shade. It’s looks a little bit darker in the sample but when I apply it it looks lighter and more girly.

6. Mandarin. This one is the perfect lipstick if you’re looking for a pop of color on your lips but don’t want it to be a red or a bright pink. It’s a bright peachy shade with a warm undertone. Even though it’s very bright it still looks somehow natural. I really liked this one and it will look great with tanned skin and a winged eyeliner! I want subtle lipsticks but somehow this one just makes me want to buy it immediatly. It has a slightly orange tint to it but it doesn’t look too ‘orangey’ if you know what I mean 🙂

7. Pink flesh. Last one! Because of the name (pink flesh) I was expecting a pink shade. This one is more of a peachy-nude pink shade! Hard to describe, but the best way is a mixture of dusty pink and peach, and then they have added some nude color into it.

Well, describing these colors was harder then I had expected! All the colors are very similar, sometimes it’s hard to tell the difference. It was my first time, I hope I did okay. 🙂 If you want, I could take some pictures while I’m wearing them, so it’s easier to see what the colors look like. Do you think I should do that?

Let me know what you think, and which color you think is the prettiest. I have to say my favorites are Brown Sugar, Nude and Mandarin.

What’s in my makeup bag?

I thought it would be fun to show you what I like to bring with me when I go out, I use these products when I want to touch up my makeup. These products are all natural. The pictures can be a little bit blurry, because it was so dark when I took them. I tried to make them lighter, I hope they are not too bad. 🙂

Tikei’s mineral foundation in the colour P2. If you’re searching for a good mineral foundation then this is it. The cover is great and the foundation comes in 40 (!) different shades, and you can by samples first to see which colour suits you best. I like to use it when my face is oily. Over all a good product! The kabuki brush comes in 3 different sizes and is also really good, it’s sooo soft!

Dr. Hauschka’s mascara in black. I have to admit, I was a little bit scared when I ordered this because I’ve read in reviews that it smudges and I already had problem with that with drugstore mascaras. I still ordered it and I’m happy I did! It does not smudge at all, at least not for me. Some people also think that it doesn’t give enough volume but I thought my lashes looked just the same as they would do with a drugstore mascara. I like it so much, I doubt I will ever buy any other mascara then Dr. Hauschka’s,  but who knows, I might get tired of it in the future.

Image

This is a lip balm that I use when my lips get dry, unfortunately it contains petrolatum and other chemicals, but I did not know that when I bought it. It makes me sad that they claim it’s good and natural product when it’s not. But I’ve learned to look in the ingridient list now. Some people who is into natural products still uses things like petrolatum, but I like to avoid it.

 Image

First of all – sorry for the blurry picture!! Now on to the product; This is a lip liner from Dr Hauschka in Warm Rose. (nr 03) I like to line and fill in my lips with the liner, because when it works as both a lip liner and a lip stick, why purchase the lip stick? 🙂 It has a good pigment and the colour is very beautiful, but it’s a slightly darker colour then I’m used to, so I prefer to use it in the fall and winter time and now when spring is here I like to choose more light colours.

I also have some eyeshadows in my makeup bag but I thought I’d do swatches instead.

Thanks for reading!

1. Morning glory by One Love Organics – This is a lightweight serum that’s plantbased. It is claimed that it brightens, enlives and de-puff your skin, while tighten and tone it. It will also smooth the appearence of fine lines. The ingridients are really great and I read in a review that it takes away acne scars and that’s exactly what I’m looking for! I’ve heard so much amazing stuff about One Love Organics so I really want to try it. The only problem is the price; it’s too expensive for me. But maybe one day I will purchase it!

2.  Rahua Voluminous Shampoo – I’ve tried many different natural shampoos without sulfates, silicones and parabens. Some of them still had some bad ingredients, like Sodium Coco-Sulfate. It’s not as bad as Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Sodium Laureth Sulfate and other sulfates, but some people like to avoid it. This one does not have Sodium Coco-Sulfate, and still lathers up pretty good. It claims, to make your hair voluminous and bouncy and at the same time strenghten your hair. It also claims that the shampoo fortifies weak, damaged strands while nourishing and regenerating the scalp and hair follicles. Sounds good to me! One of the few problems I have with natural shampoo is that I don’t get so much volume, so this one is very appealing to me. I’ve read so much great stuff about this one, so I think I might purchase it after I’ve used up my current shampoo!

3. “Un” Cover-Up  by rms beauty – Many of you might already have this one. I’ve been thinking about buying it for a long time, but I just haven’t done it yet. It can be used as an foundation or as a light concealer and it will melt into your skin while covering up imperfections and redness. If you have very dry skin you can apply a moisturizer first and if you have oily skin you can set it with powder. The concealer comes in 5 different shades and you can apply it with your fingers or with a foundation brush and the product is certified organic.

4. “Pure Rose” Drinkable Bulgarian Rose Water – You can eat it, drink it, spray it on your face as a toner or spray it to set your makeup and even spray it on your hair to moisturize it! You can put it in water, hot water, tea or smoothie and drink it or put it in your cereals, fruit salads and eat it! It says that it promotes healthy digestive system, helps your body to detoxify, balances your energy level, improves your mood, freshens your breath and creates a sense of well-being. It is also good for your skin and hair, and you can read all the benefits hereIt’s 100 % pure and natural and has no additives, no chemicals, and contains nutritious juices and pure rose oil from fresh organic Rosa Damascena petals. How awesome ain’t that!
