Elf HD blush in 'Encore'

 This little thing is soooo pigmented!! It was the single color i could choose from the ones available on the romanian elf site and i didn't fail. I think it looks natural and in the end you control the amount!

 I apply it lightly with my fingertips, dotting & blending. That little amount that shows below is enough for one cheek.

 Here i applied more for the purpose of this review.
 This shade is called Encore and it is a hot mauve-pink. I was aiming for a natural looking blush that didn't look like powder on top of the foundation and i noticed that over colorstay foundation is not working well. Here i had on Astor lift me up foundation in 103 - rose beige. 
It doesn't give glow or shine. In my opinion it's easy to apply, but it depends very much on the base. Overall i like it and i will order Superstar next.

Hope it's been helpful ;)

Joico treatment shampoo and conditioner for daily use

For my birthday, my husband surprised me - totally - with this Joico treatment kit for normal hair and problem scalp (daily use). I didn't know anything about the brand, until after i got to work and told about it to my work colleague.

I noticed a change after the first use. My hair was more thick and textured! I was stunned. I have damaged hair and i feel that the keratin really helped it. I use it for 2 weeks now and i love the smell of each product, it takes you into a virtual professional salon in your own bathroom, at home.

Great choice, hubby!
Thank you ;)

Farmec Natural

Tot pe rand, am ajuns sa folosesc 3 produse din gama noua de la Farmec.
Primul a fost demachiantul cu galbenele pe care il gasesc foarte tonic pentru ingredientele pe care le are. Face treaba buna si pretul este foarte rezonabil.
Cand am mers la cumparaturi prin Kaufland am dat peste crema pentru conturul ochilor cu argan si pot sa spun ca sunt mai mult decat incantata de ea. A fost 9.9 lei si hidrateaza fara sa imi irite ochii, eu pun crema, nu ma joc si totusi nu imi lacrimeaza ca si de la alte creme. O voi folosi pana la disparitie! :))
Ultima a fost crema hidratanta pentru fata cu argan pentru care m-am dus special la un magazin Farmec, dupa ce ma interesasem pe net ca ar fi cam 10 lei la 50 ml. Vanzatoarea scoate ditai cutia de 150 ml si imi cere 14 lei!!! Am ramas masca si ma pufnea rasul in cursul zilei, cand ma gandeam. 14 lei pentru o crema (e varianta pentru fata si corp) atat de fina, fara parabeni, cu miros placut si intr-o cantitate atat de mare, e mai mult decat o minune pentru bugetul oricui. Mie imi face tenul atat de moale, fin si hidratat cum numai Olay mai reusea - primele 10 minute. :)
Ma bucur sa sustin o companie romaneasca, chiar merita.

AURA lipstick (DM store)

I recently discovered a new makeup collection in the DM stores and the first item i picked up was this lipstick. Satin Extreme in Peach Passion 912.
The texture is almost matte, creamy. The lipstick has a smell, but it doesn't bother me, because it is subtle. It stays on a decent amount of time and after a whole day of wearing it the lips aren't dry.
The price is more than decent and i absolutely love it. The range has many shades and i will look for other ones, next time.

Bourjois Waterproof Clubbing eyeliner

I got this from a friend for my birthday and i absolutely love it. It's really-really black and it does what it says. I use it on my upper lid, between my lashes and i draw a line above the lashes and wing it at the outer corners. From the moment i put it on it stays like that until i take it off. Water has no effect on it, so it's great for summer.
The coal is pretty thick but i sharpen it every 3-4 days because i like fine lines. So, for me it's a great substitute for liquid eyeliners, but i get a softer eye definition, which is perfect!

Balea hair oil

I have really damaged hair, especially the ends, they're the worst. I've been dying my hair dark brown, red, blonde and then, back to middle brown, all this in a year, so...yeah, you can imagine!

I bought Balea oil repair for hair a couple of weeks ago and i only used it twice, because i don't like the smell of it and the fact that it leaves my hair oily and somehow tangled?! I know it's supposed to make my hair oily, but how can someone go out like that? I would've used it more often if it hadn't that scent, which isn't bad, like chemical smells or weird, but that specific aroma i don't enjoy. It's sweet and very similar to almond body butter, i think.
