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.

Tag : Πόσο κοστίζει το (καθημερινό) σου μακιγιάζ;

Καλησπέρα! Να μαι και γω!

Τι κάνετε? 

Ηρθε η ώρα να κάνω και γω ένα tag post, μιας και νομίζω οτι είναι ενδιαφέρον να δούμε πόσο χαλάμε στο καθημερινό μας μακιγιάζ.
Θα βάλω τα προϊόντα που χρησιμοποιώ καθημερινά, και σχεδόν όλα βρίσκονται στο νεσεσεράκι που κουβαλάω μαζί μου.Σε κάποια δεν θυμάμαι ακριβώς τιμές, αλλα στο περίπου ( ~ ) και βάζω τις τιμές στις οποίες ΕΓΩ τα αγόρασα. Κάπου αλλού μπορεί να κοστίζουν λιγότερο ή περισσότερο.

Πάμε? 

(English version here



Garnier BB Cream (light) – 10 €
Revlon Colorstay 110 ~ 12 € 
(Κάνω ένα mix σε αυτά τα δύο για να πετύχω το χρώμα μου!)
Radiant illuminator  (ροζ) ~ 14 € για τους μαύρους κύκλους και λάμψη κάτω απο τα μάτια
Seventeen concealer (07) ~ 8 €

Eσας ποσο κοστίζει?

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

Seventeen nail polish No.504

Well… Some small notes before my swatch:

– I really-really DON’T paint my nails with dark colors when they are long. This is something I do NOT like…

But… This is the first time in my life that my nails are so strong and they don’t break.. I have them long for a long time now.. But….

Its winter, Christmas is coming, and I can’t really have them french manicured all the time, or pinky summer colors…

If you don’t like long nails with strong colors, yeah , we are on the same boat, so… just an exception for this time…

– The brand is called Seventeen. I always thought that it was an international brand, but only recently I realised that I haven’t seen them anywhere else except Greece. And its bad cause its a good brand, have a big variety of colors (especially in nail polishes) and have some of my favorite products (eg. the concealer stick)

So……

Seventeen nail polish no 504 :

I ll be honest here. I just wanted to buy a black nail polish and I was in hurry. The blacks were not in stock (didn’t notice) so I grabbed what it looked like black in my eyes ….

When I got home, I realised that its not black. Well it is, but also has shimmery red in it.!

So, I tried it ! I loved it in instance, and I think that is a very suitable color , especially for that period of time….

Its a black color, with red shimmery. What is amazing, is that in the sun, it gives the gold effect, that I love..!!!

With no direct light and semi-direct light
