Do you believe in love with the first sight? Second?

Well, how many of us have bought something, that didn’t like that moment, and when we used them again, we fell in love with it?
I m one of them. I had forgotten some items in my stash lately, so I gave them a second chance…
…. and I don’t regret it !
 Zara teracotta multibronzing powder.I remember buying it very cheap (like 5€).I used it a couple of times back then, and then forgot it. I retried it a couple of days ago, and while is multibronzing (means as highlighters, eyeshadows, blushes, etc), I love the colors as eyeshadows. One of my very faves this month.
 Korres Shimmering eyeshadow dark grey. It was part of an 6eyeshadows offer. Though it was too dark. Now love it for smokey 🙂
Seventeen precision liner. Kay. I have to admit that a year ago, I even rarely used eyeliner/eye pencil. I was so clumsy in that. I bought it some months ago, but found it very hard to use. Now that I am a bit better in applying eyeliner, I tried it again. Its a glossy, dark black and have a very good staying power.

L’oreal Lumi Magique. Won it in a giveaway. Never paid attention but after trying it a couple of times I realize that is actually ts good for under-eye highlighter.
 ♥
Elf concealer/Highlighter duo . I didn’t like the highlighter part, and I thought it was too long to fit my make-up clutch.I saw katmar1978 ‘s  video where she said it broke in two pieces (as it was something negative)  but it was a great solution to me.So I broke it and kept the concealer one which I liked from the start 🙂 Win-win!
 ♥
Lancome Tonique water. (no pic for this) I have bought quite a few traveler sets and general sets from Duty Free shops, and sometimes, I don’t use all the products from the pack. I had tried that lotion when I bought it but that period of time, my skin was way too dry, so It just made it even more dry !!!
I still don’t use it all the time,but when I have some pimples, I prefer this over any other lotion and it really helps.
The body shop lip liner in mauve berry. I have bought it to match a TBS lipstick.
 I didn’t like the lipstick (gave it away,eventually) and I had forgotten this lip liner, because when I bought it, I didn’t have lots of lipsticks anyway. While looking through my pencils, I saw this. Tried it again, (matched with some of my lipsticks,too) and use it again.

You should all go through your make up stash again. Especially if you have lots and lots of stuff like I do. You’ll might find a hidden gem you have forgotten, too 🙂
Have you given a second chance to any of your products? Which?
Hope you liked this post.
Love.

My lipstick collection!

 Γειά σας Beauties!

Αποφάσισα να κάνω μια παρουσίαση απο τα κραγιόν μου (μπορεί να κάνω και άλλες, με άλλη σειρά προϊόντων, δεν ξέρω). Νταξει, όχι οτι σας νοιάζει, αλλα για πακετάκι με την παρουσίαση
Δεν ξέρω αν είναι λίγα ή πολλά, αλλα αυτά έχω προς το παρόν.
Η αλήθεια είναι οτι μέχρι πριν απο 3 χρόνια, πρέπει να είχα το πολύ 2-3 κραγιόν και αυτά ήταν MLBB / nude αποχρώσεις. 
Είμαι λίγο επιφυλακτική με τα χρώματα. Οχι οτι τώρα είμαι πολύ τολμηρή όπως θα δείτε..

Θα ξεκινήσω με τα Nyx, μιας και τα αγόρασα μαζεμένα απο το e-bay, απο τις πωλήτριες που ανέφερα σε ένα πρόσφατο ποστ μου.

Στην πάνω σειρά έχουμε (Α->Δ) Iconic, B52, Minimalism, Mars, Hermes
Στην κάτω : Perfect, Decadent, Tea Rose, Milan, Frappucino
Αριστερά είναι το Sake (lip tint) , δεξιά το bling (black label ) και αυτό που μοιάζει με lip gloss είναι το San Paulo (soft Matte lip cream)

Τα υπόλοιπα κραγιόν μου είναι τα παρακάτω: 
Προσπάθησα (γιατί δεν το χω) να τα κάνω όλα μαζί ένα collective swatch στο χέρι μου. Εβαλα και νουμεράκια στο καθένα!

– Πατήστε πάνω στην φώτο για να την δείτε σε  κανονικό μέγεθος –

My perfume collection

Hello there!

Ι have been absent again, I don’t make excuses but I have the most perfect and sweet reason not to be on the blog.

Here is it, my best friend gave birth to her second daughter -> my future godchild 🙂

Anyway…Do you love perfumes? I do, so I have some in my collections (I have more actually, but I have left them in my hometown, where the rest of my family lives).

And… I m gonna show it to you 🙂

(No, its not a try to get a panoramic photo)

Pure Poison by Dior and Noa by Cacharel

Sensation by Jil Sander and  Glow by Jlo

Hot by Givenchy and touch of Pink by lacoste

Coco madmoiselle by Chanel and He/il by Armani

One by Ck and One summer by CK

Rush 2 by Gucci and Extreme by Bulgari

Montana Blu by Claude Montana and 212 (the green one) by Carolina Herrera

Brit By Burberry ( I didn’t took a photo, I forgot it ) and Burberry

Summer edition of Isey Miyake and Hypnose Senses by Lancome

And last, a Joop one which I don’t remember and a perfume from the Greek brand of Seventeen. Its not a high-end one, it actually costs only 11€ , but the magnificent is that has the exactly same smell with Gucci rush (1, the red ) and maybe even better.

So…

Do you have any of them above? What is your favorite perfume?

If you want to ask anything about the above, feel free to . Yes, I know 2 of them are unisex and one is for males.

Lots of love
