REVIEW: Avon Calming Effects Mattifying Foundation

Hi cuties :) 

Today I have for you a review of a new mattifying foundation that Avon just launched in this campaign :) 

What Avon says: "Lightweight coverage for skin that stays matte for hours. Fresh looking, lightweight liquid formula with aloe vera & camomille mattifies T-zone. Instantly reduces excess oil, provides even, matte coverage and helps to hide imperfections"

The foundation comes in this glass bottle with a pump and I think it's very nice. You get 30 ml of product which is quite nice considering the price, which is 5,90€ in this catalogue. (the regular price is 11€, but it will probably be almost all the time on sale)

I bought it in the shade Nude, which is the lightest shade they have.

I'm usually not the lightest shade so you have to consider that this one is probably darker than regular "light" shades and would not suit all the light skin tones. The foundation comes in 5 different shades, and I think that there's not a big difference between them, except for the darkest one.

I would say the coverage is about medium, but you definitely can build it up.

It does mattifies my skin, but not for a long time, I would say about 4-5 hours. If I put a translucent mattifying powder over it, there's no need to touch up. All in all, I would say this was probably my most used foundation this month - I really like it ;)

- good price
- contains aloe vera & camomille
- mattifies skin for about 4-5 hours
- the pump! :)
- medium coverage (but buildable)

- not a big variety of shades
- shades are very similar

To conclude - I think that people with oily and even normal skin would quite like the foundation. 

Have you tried it? :) If so, let me know what you think about it in the comments bellow! :)

Liebster Award 2015

Hi cuties!

I was nominated for the Liebster Award by Katie Louise from caniborrowthattop.

Thank you so much for the nomination Katie!

So.. Let's start, shall we? :P

1. Favourite song to sing in the shower?
Omg, I very rarely sing in the shower, because I'm so bad at singing, and I know that other people (neighbours) can hear me... So I rarely do that :D But when I do, it's a random song I heard throughout the day.

  2. What/who is your spirit animal?
I actually did not know the answer to this question, so I googled it and found a quiz that you take to discover your spirit animal :D And my spirit animal is the Deer :)
When you have the deer as spirit animal, you are highly sensitive and have a strong intuition. - which is exactly like me.

  3.Favourite dessert?
Hands down, it's the icecream :D any sort of it, I just love it!

  4. What was your first concert?
I'm sorry but I just can't remember what was the first one... I've never been to any big concerts, just to local ones...

  5. Dream job?
My dream job would include English, like translating or something... also I'd love to work for a makeup company or something similar.

  6. Who would you choose to be in your Youtube family? (Mum, dad, brother and sister)
 I don't really understand this one :/ Oh if we'd be a youtube family, which members of the family would I include in the videos? :D All of them, mum&dad and brother&sister.

7. Favourite accessories?
Earrings, rings, scarfs.. i can't choose :P but I wear scarfes almost everyday, so that must be it :D

  8. If you could give your younger self a piece of advice, what piece of advice would you give them?
"Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted."

  9. Do you prefer body spray/mist or perfume? And what kind.
 I prefer perfumes, because they last longer. I actually don't have any very known perfumes, because I prefer not to spend a whole lot of money on them, so I have Avon's perfumes, some Essence ones and so on..

10. Favourite app?
Instagram. I spend a lot of time on it, actually a lot more than on Facebook :)

11. If you could only own one pair of shoes, what pair of shoes would they be?
I would probably have to decide between Adidas or Converse Allstar. They're both great quality shoes, comfortable and not that pricey at the same time :)

That's it, I hope you enjoyed! I nominate:
And here are my 11 questions :) 

1. Where do you see yourself in 20 years?
2. Why did you start blogging?
3. What would you do if you won the lottery?
4. What do you admire most about yourself?
5. What's your favourite makeup product?
6. What do you value most in life?
7. What's your favourite season of the year?
8. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would that be?
9. Share your favourite quote.
10. What brings you the most happiness?
11. Favourite food?

REVIEW: Essence XXXL Longlasting Lipgloss - 1 Baby doll's favourite


Today I'll talk about this Essence XXXL Longlasting Lipgloss in 1 Baby Doll's Favourite. Essence is discontinuing this one, so get it when you still can :)

I have two other Essence Lipglosses that I'm quite pleased with, and I will show them in the end of this post, so I decided to buy this.
I actually quite like the packaging. I don't think it looks cheap at all. The gloss has a slanted doe foot applicator that I really like. You get 4,5 ml of product.

This colour is a sheer milky pinky coral color. It's not super sheer, you definately get some pretty color on your lips.

It smells yummy, like vanilla, but the scent goes away almost as soon as the gloss hits your lips. It has no taste to it. Does a nice job at staying on. I would say it stays on for 3-4 hours before I need to touch up.

All in all I really think this is a great quality gloss, with nice shine and staying power. 

And the two other Lipglosses from Essence that I have are this two:

The fist one is a Essence XXXL Longlasting Lipgloss with MATT effect in  07 Silky Red, which I absolutly adore! And the second one is Essence XXXL Shine Lipgloss in 24 Just Georgeous. Both are great quality and I really recommend them to you :)

I hope you enjoyed this :)
Oh and one more exciting thing, thank you so much for all the support & when I reach 50 followers, I'll do a giveaway!! :)) xoxo

January Favorites

Back again, with my favorites of January :)) Enjoy!

Not that many products in this favorites, but anyway :P


 Essence Studio Nails Moisturizing Cuticle Cream contains vitamin E, panthanol & rich oils.  I use it everytime I do my nails and I have to say it does help my cuticles look less dry and more healthy. It smells nice & contains 15 ml of product. The only bad thing is if you do your nails quite often (like me) and use this everytime, you quickly run out of it.


This blush is georgeous! I love E.l.f. blushes so much. They are sooo pigmented. I'm sorry I can't tell you the shade of it, because it's not written on the packaging.. This blush also has a mirror inside, which I find pretty handy.


I love these two so much, probably they are the most loved lip products in my collection :P (which is not that small:D)

The first one is Catrice Made to Stay Lip Polish in 030 Strawberry's Secret. I've made first impression post on this one, so you can check it HERE.

And the second one is Rimmel London Apocalips Lip Lacquer in 101 Celestial. The texture of this is unlike anything I've tried before. It's non-sticky, creamy, but not very wet. It's very pigmented and is opaque in a single swipe. It's a long wearing product, but it doesn't make my lips too dry. It settles into a matte finish about an hour after the application and the colour stays on me for 5-6 hours. However, it's not transfer-proof. Celestial is a dusty pink - one of the more wearable shades from the range. The only thing I don't like about this is the smell. Smells really weird and it almost makes me sick when I'm applying it. But after the application, the smell is gone. I'm sure I'll buy some other shades too :)
