Summer Inspirations



REVIEW: Avon True Colour Illuminating Pearls

Hey everyone :)

I had an eye on the Avon's true colour illuminating pearls for a while and finally when they were on offer decided to buy them :) 

The pearls  come in a black plastic tub and though the packaging looks huge, it's not heavy. The cap is screw type and fits well.

You get 22g of product for (usually on offer) 6-7€.

I love the effect it gives since it gives you a subtle shimmery look with a touch of colour. Perfect for summer!

If you have a light skin tone you can use it as a blush by crushing the dark colored pearls. I have been using this almost every day to highlight my nose bridge, my cheek bones and my chin as well as using it instead of a blush.

It's not chalky at all and it's very smooth to apply. I love that it has no fragrance since so many beauty products nowadays do. The quantity is huge for the amount I paid I don’t think I will need to buy this again for this life time :D 

It really works as everyday blush and highlighter and gives a nice sheen to  my face without looking glittery. Would totally recommend it for summer!

Have you tried this product already, let me know :)


REVIEW: Wella System Professonal Reconstructive Elixir Luxe Oil

Hey loves :3

This time I'll review another product I received in my LookFantastic box. It's a Wella System Professional Luxe Oil. I haven't really used oil in my hair just because my hair gets greasy very quickly, but I decided to give this one a go.

Wella’s System Professional Luxeoil collection consists of keratin protect shampoo, keratin restore mask, ‘keratin boost essence spray’, light oil keratin protection spray and the ‘oil’/serum itself which Wella call ‘reconstructive elixir’. Each product promise to transform your hair’s texture while protecting, smoothing and softening without weighing down your locks. The hydrating oils in the mix are Argan as well as jojoba and almond. There’s also a good dash of hair strengthening keratin.

To use it, I simply pump one or two squirts into my palms, rub them together and then run them down the lengths of my hair while it’s wet. Once it’s dry, my hair definitely looks shinier and has a smooth, silky feel.

I went through the ingredients and a first few are almost all fragrances which explains the strong scent that this product has. I do like it though.

I like it a lot since it does make my hair feel really smooth, soft and silky. I do however warn you about the strong scent it has, you may like it or you may not.

I would recommend you to get a sample of it to try it at first if you consider it buying.

Today is another collaboration with StyleWe and JustFashionNow. I've written for StyleWe a couple times before, but If you haven't read the posts - It's an online fashion shopping platform featuring independent fashion designers.

REVIEW: Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation

Hey loves :)

Lately I have found myself on a major foundation kick. I’ve been trying new releases left and right. Today's review is about the Maybelline Fit me Matte + Poreless foundation. I bought it because it was on sale recently and I really wanted to see how it would perform on my skin since I do have enormous pores.

Here are the ingredients if anyone's interested:

It comes in a squeezy tube which means it's lighter and less fragile than glass bottles. Additionally, the tube comes sealed as well. So it is easy to check in stores whether someone has already opened it. A tube contains 30 ml of product which is standard for a foundation.

This product is formulated for normal to oily skin. It should blur imperfections, minimize pores and match flawlessly with your skin. The texture of this is surprisingly liquid for a matte foundation aimed at normal to oily skin. Coverage is good, I’d say medium and buildable to more, if you feel you need more. One thing I noticed immediately is how easy it was to blend this foundation. Despite the claims that this is a matte foundation, it doesn’t look cakey and keeps a certain amount of luminosity.

This is how it looks on me:

Wear time on this was great. It lasted all day and definitely survives a work day. It didn’t crease on itself which I think is mostly due to the fact that it is such a lightweight formula. You only need a little bit to cover your entire face and while it doesn’t cover everything, I loved how natural this foundation looked. 

I would absolutely recommend this foundation :) Do you have it, what do you think?

Happy Monday <3

Again, I really like the design of this box as well as a previous one, so cute. This one is also quite bigger than all the other ones I got before, you'll see why soon ;) The theme for this month is "Get the glow".

Let's jump into it ;)

Whichever colour you receive, your eyes will thank you for. The softly pigmented shadow gives a gorgeous shimmer for a bright and luminous finish.

This fine mist hydrates and nourishes the skin, whilst also imparting a hint of colour for a sun-kissed finish.

This natural exfoliant is formulated with 100% organic and roasted coffee, as well as coconut oil to gently smooth your skin. Oh, and it smells divine!

These are all the products that were inside my box, I'm totally loving it again! I already tried the Luxe oil and it made my hair super soft, plus the Mellow eyeshadow is very pretty - can also be used as a highlighter! For 20€ including free shipping these boxes have not failed me so far :)

Hope you enjoyed, happy Saturday <3
