Elf Eyebrow kit

Γειά σας κορτσόπουλα, τι μου κάνετε? 
Να μαι πάλι, αυτή τη φορά με Ελληνικό ποστ!
Αποφάσισα, μιας και ποστάρω τα ίδια πράγματα σε 2 blog, το ένα να είναι με τα Ελληνικά και το άλλο με τα Αγγλικά.

My English  readers can find this post here.
Στο τελευταίο μου Haul απο την Elf, πήρα ότι δεν ήταν σε στοκ τόσους μήνες, και γλυκοιταζα. (για την ακρίβεια περίμενα πως και πως). Μέσα σε αυτά, ήταν και αυτό το σετάκι για τα φρύδια.Εγώ πήρα το σκούρο, για ευννόητους λόγους.
Αποτελείται απο 2 σκιές, η μία είναι ψιλοκρεμώδης σαν κερί και η άλλη απλή σκιά, πιο ανοιχτή.
Είχα την απορία τι ακριβώς κάνει η ανοιχτή, και όταν την δοκίμασα, είδα οτι πάνω απο το κερί, δίνει ένα τρισδιάστατο αλλα και πιο φυσικό εφέ.

 

Προσπαθώ να μεγαλώσω τα φρυδάκια μου, να φαίνονται λίγο πιο φυσικά και φυσιολογικά, γιατί βγάλε-βγάλε τόσα χρόνια, λεπτυναν πολύ, είδικά προς τις άκρες, και δεν ταιριάζουν καθόλου με τα μεγάλα μπιρμπιλωτά μου μάτια.
Μιας που τα αφήνω και μεγαλώνουν, σαν αποτέλεσμα έχει αλλού να έχουν βγεί τρίχες, αλλού όχι, να έχουν κενά, και ήδη το εσωτερικό μέρος να είναι πολύ πιο χοντρό απο το εξωτερικό. 
Ρίξτε μια ματιά (με δεξί κλίκ μπορείτε να τις δείτε και σε μεγαλύτερο μέγεθος, αλλα θα τρομάξετε):

   

Βάζω λοιπόν το πραγματάκι στα κενά, και φτιάχνω το σχηματάκι, και ορίστε το αποτέλεσμα…

   

Τι? Δεν βλέπετε διαφορά? Για δείτε δίπλα δίπλα τι γίνεται? Μπορεί να το βλέπω μόνο εγώ, αλλα νομίζω οτι το σχήμα έχει βελτιωθεί αισθητά!

Το έχει δοκιμάσει καμία? ή κάποιο αντίστοιχο kit? Πως σας φαίνεται ? 
Αυτά… 
Θα ποστάρω πιο συχνά.. 
Σμουτς!

E.l.f Haul and Essence mini Haul

Hello beauties!

How are you?

Here I come with another haul. I -again- bought some Elf goodies online (3rd time since January) and some Essence from Hondos Center.

(I couldn’t stop myself. They re-stocked items after a looooong time!)

(These will be the last for a period of time, since I m currently looking for a job (so I can have an income to.. spend). That’s why I only invested in cheaper but good cosmetics like Elf. Not that I won’t buy them later,too … High price doesn’t not always equal quality, neither the opposite. I m very please with almost all their products.)

So, here is what I got.

Let’s look them one by one, and I will also do some swatches/reviews for some, if you have a request, I would be happy to listen!

This is Healthy Glow Bronzing Powder in Luminance. Its a wonderful highlighter to use right above your cheekbones

It has shimmer in it, though its not visible in the photo.

This is lengthening & defining mascara in black. Pretty decent mascara for only 1.5 pounds

 

The following is one of the most popular items from Elf, the eyelid primer in sheer. Finally, found it available!!! YAY

 

This is an ELF lipstick in shade charming (I also got a Voodoo backup)

 

Here is the all-over cover stick in Apricot Beige (fair)

 

Here is the blush and bronzer compact kit

Mineral Booster in Sheer

 

And here is the eye-brow kit in dark (that I already LOOOOOOVE )

 

I also bought 2 brushes. The Studio powder brush and the smudge brush. The powder brush was a bit pressed in the package, so the shape is kinda squeezed and not round.

 

This is what I got from Elf.

Oh, and the eyelash curler

A bit of Essence now…..

A nail polish from marble mania collection. Rassberry swirl

Stay-all-day cream shadow in a bronze color

And last, an eyebrow kit which I bought to use their stencils. Lol

Well, that’s it! What do you think about my haul ? Have you got any of these products? Do you want to buy any of them? What’s your favorite?

Lots of love beauties.

How I fell in love with a lipstick color, ELF – Voodoo

Hello beauties.

Its ELF time again.

I was about to make a review about some ELF products all together, but I hadn’t really tried this lipstick before. Once I did it, I had to post about it seperately.

There was not long ago that I said that I don’t usually try darker lipsticks, because I prefer ”safer” colors. Being pale in my skin, with dark hair, and big lips for my face, a too bright, or too red color for me is very risky.

I can’t really describe how much I loved this color. From the moment I tried it , I … just loved it !  It might just be me, and you might disagree with me, that’s why I ll swatch it and I expect your opinion as well.

Elf says : Spicy Warm Red Creme

I don’t know how exactly to describe it, its like the color of cherries? Wine red? Don’t know, its just looking great 😉

 

 

 

Looks  just okay, isn’t it ? But look it on my lips…

 

 

And how it actually looks with my skintone, colors,etc

         

So, what do you think?

I am delussional or it looks as good as I think it does?

Lots of Love.

E.l.f Blushes = Tickled Pink and Candid Coral

Hello beauties.

Here I am. I decided to make a blush swatch, I am not sure if I made the right decision though.

My camera is not the best, and the shades I chose are very light (I am not very good in applying blush, so I don’t buy darker shades, I am afraid to be a clown, actually).

So I decided to swatch my new – beautiful blushes – of Elf.

Candid Coral, a corl with gold shimmer blush, also known as a good dupe of Nars Orgasm and Tickled Pink, a very very fresh and beautiful pink.

So here they are…

Left is Candid Coral, right is Tickled Pink (beautiful, aren’t they)

  .

I had a really hard time to swatch them in my arm, so this is the best I could do

Candid Coral is the one in the top, and tickled pink the one in the bottom

And now, show time…

I don’t think you have seen my fugly face yet, so here I am . Yes, I am wearing my PJs, yes, with no other make up one, yes, my brows are not fulle plucked (I m trying to make them ticker actually) and yes, with jungle hair. So please be polite.

(Left ones are Tickled Pink,left ones are tickled Pink, or easiest method, when you see my ear ring, then its tickled pink)

Bathroom photos

 

  

And here is with sun light, but in my room

Bottomline, I love them. Its what I need. I don’t like very strong colors, I can’t work with them. Also with my skin tone, any strong color will appear so fake, and I prefer natural blushing. And to be honest, the photos doesn’t show how pigmented they really are. Coz they are way more than what you see here

What do you think?

Lots of love beauties.

February Goodies / hauls and presents.

Hello beauties,

Back to base, and hopefully I ll post more often now.

I want to post what I got for presents for my birthday, my Elf Haul and a palette that was in a magazine.

 ♥

Elf goodies

There was an 30% off, and I didn’t miss the chance to order them. I was going to anyway, using my free shipping code (by Fenzy app) , but that was even better.

The awesome moment when you open the box to get your goodies

And put them all together in front of you

More specifically I ordered the following — white a bit of comments (no reviews or swatches yet)

Eye Widener in White – Its not white, its pearly white. I wanted it to be matte white, but no harm,  its okay

Kabuki Brush – Love it

Blush Brush – Its for a friend, didn’t test it , but I am sure it rocks :p

All Over Color Stick in Pink lemonade – Nice, lovely color and great application

Lipstick in Voodoo – Beautiful color, I love the smell of the lipstick

clarifying pressed powder in Rosy Beige – I am the most dissapointed by that. Darker than it looks. But won’t go wasted, maybe I d use as a contour.

Tinted Moisuriser SPF 20 in Porcelain – Fits my skin nice, like it . (haven’t test it all over my face though)

luscious liquid lipstick in Ruby Slipper – I though I m gonna hate it , coz it has glitter (that is not visible in the site photos), but turned out to look very nice .

And day to night beauty on the go palette. – Beautiful pallete. I prefer the natural colors more.

Tinted Moisturiser SPF 15 in Rosy beige – Not my color at all. Way more darker, and.. yellowish! I picked the rosy, to avoid yellow. :S This will go wasted. Can’t use it at all.

Shimmer Eyeliner Pencil in Precious Pink – Nice.

Studio Blush in Tickle Pink and Candid Coral – Love – love – love them ♥

 Presents.

20 something years ago, at 28th of February, a little girl was born…

This lil girl grow up, had many friends, and some of them that were in her hometown, got her some presents (all of them, shirts).

My lovely Katerina, got my this shirt. Its a lovely shade of green, sporty style, that will be great with sport trousers, or jeans and chucks.

My other lovely friend, and future sister in law (she is my brother’s amazing girlfriend) , Aphrodite , got me this cartoon shirt.

My love of cartoons is not a secret 🙂

Last but not least, my friends Artemis and Dimitra, got me another present, a pink shirt, with grey/pink animal prints as a stamp.

But I went and change the shirt. The shirt was amazing, the color was fantastic, but… I don’t wear extra small. Even though I d like to fit even in Small, I don’t.

My boobs were going to explode in there, and the belly was extra visible. Sorry girls for changing it, but there was no pink or other sizes in other colors of the same shirt available.

So I got this dress (its beige and BLUE in reality) and a pouch instead. I was so sad that couldn’t have the same they got me 😦

Magazine gift – Avon Pallete

My last new thing, was this palette from Avon (I think it was in Vogue gr)

And here is swatched in my arm. Its is supossed to be White – purple – grey and dark purple/greyish.

Needless to say that the dark purple is a fail, and looks like grey. The other are quite nice.

I will be back soon, swatching  – probably – the elf goodies 🙂

Lots of love babies
