january favourites!

hey girls!
i just wanted to share some things with you that i have been wearing non stop this month!
I know i know...most of them are from mac! but i can't help it! they are amazing!

lets start with the non-Mac products!
I recently bought the sephora professonnel contour/blush/bronzer brush!
i have been using it for applying my powder and works perfectly!

you can find it here :

Next it is a face care product and it is the apivita exfoliating face cream with lavender and olive and it is by far the best exfoliator i have ever used. If you have not tried any of their products please DO. Everything is amazing for body moisturizer to lip balms! Their face masks are better than words can describe!

you can find them here :
i think they ship in all the EU.

Now MAC!!!!! 

My mac 129 brush which I use for blush. It is limited edition so the handle is transparent with silver glitter in but is like a classic 129.

then my new concealer which is studio sculpt concealer in NW20 (yes apparently i am a NW20) which conceals all my little imperfections and never sits in the lines!
next my first ever paint pot in indianwood! Yes this is my first and after understanding what everybody was talking about i know that i am going to get them all!!! Mac describes it as a metallic antique bronze colour and i think i would definately agree! To set things straight i wear it as an eyeshadow and not as a base with nothing on top, nothing underneath! And it stays there for 11 hours today! Yes it is true! I thought this would move, this would crease! NO no no! It is amazing!

last but not least my amazing blush 'harmony' which i am sure i will hit pan very soon! It is just a muted beige-brown which goes with everything and can be used as a contour!

I also went to buy mineralize skinfinish natural but apparently i am in the shade light plus and i was told that they don't get it in the store which is in Patras. I was very disappointed but i bought the careblend powder instead! I don't think this will be the same but i though I should give it a go and then tell you about it!

Sorry about the lack of swatches but i haven't sorted out the problem with my camera yet!
What are your first favourites of the year?? have you tried any of them? do you have any suggestions?
I am in a Mac addicted phase at the moment!

elf once more!

hey girls!
today i am going to do a post promised long ago..
since my camera is doing very well these days i thought i'd post this one with pictures taken a long time ago!

so lets start with the face products

so on the left is the studio blush in candid coral and on the right from up, their studio duo bronzer and blusher and their studio cool bronzer. i don't particularly enjoy the ones on the right because their are very dark for my skin tone, but i have used candid coral a few times!

now for the lips!

down : luscious liquid lipstick in maple sugar and strawberry
up: from left to right from the mineral line rosy raisin and rosy tan and from the essential line fantasy, seductive, posh
i have used up maple sugar and really loved the mineral lipsticks, sheer but beautiful and natural but haven't used the other ones. To be honest although these are gorgeous colours i don't like how they feel like on the lips.

last but not least something i am really excited about, brushes!!

from left to right studio kabuki face brush (aaaaamazing), blush, bronzing and blending brush, studio fan brush and c eyeshadow brush.

ok, so i think i have tried a lot of products from elf and i really liked many of them but the brushes are amazing! i would definately buy some more brushes and my next order will include all brushes i don't own yet. maybe some doubles. To be honest i definately prefer the studio ones, they are so soft and feel great using them but for 1.70 euros you can't go wrong with the essential line!

so girls, what are you favourite elf products?
i hope you enjoyed this post and i will be back soon with a haul for you :)

xxx cu soon

happy new year!!!

hello girls!!!!!!!!
how have you been???i hope everyone had great holidays!!! i am so sorry about the absence of posts lately but i have a huge problem with my camera! i hope that i will figure this out soon!
I have a haul coming for you soon but until then i would like to share with you some thought on my new year's resolutions!

Well i am not the type of girl that makes lists at the start of new year!
this year i thought why not???
So i made 2 lists! one is my wishlist for 2012 which i guess i will be updating all the time and the othe one is things i think important for anyone to keep going!

So,for me it is important to have a healthy diet and exercise often which is something that i have neglected these past few years! i want to have time for my friends and spend all my spare time with my boyfriend and family!

Lastly the MOST important thing is to be motivated and optimistic! Knowing
who you are and what you deserve is what will keep you healthy soul and body!

What are your new year's resolutions? How have you been spending your time these holidays?

happy new year everybody!
