LookFantastic Beauty Box - February 2018

Hello everyone!

My LookFantastic beauty box has been with me for a while now but I just didn't find time to photograph the products inside, so this post is a bit late ;)

This month's theme is The Beauty Rendezvous.

As well as the last month's box - I'm not a fan of the "new" design of the boxes. Just plain colours don't really attract me as much as previous designs.

As usual there's an issue of Elle magazine with it. The box costs 20€ with free shipping internationally.

Let's start :)

1. Filorga Meso - Mask

This mask is a real super star product and here's why: it will give your complexion radiance and luminosity; whilst also diminishing the appearance of wrinkles and helping to prevent them. It will also relieve your face of any signs of fatigue and even out your skin tone. All of this magic in a cream texture with extra easy application. What's not to like?

2. Elemis Pro - Collagen Marine Cream

A bestseller within the skincare world, this cream is as famous as Chanel Numero 5. This cream is perfect for all skin types and is designed to increase hydration and help improve the appearance of dull skin and fine lines. Super hydrating yet not sticky, the lightweight formula makes it perfect applied as a primer. The powerful anti-ageing ingredients of the award-winning Pro-Collagen Marine Cream have been shown to reduce the depth of wrinkles, improve skin firmness and hydration in as little as 14 days.

3. BellaPierre Shimmer Roll in Champagne

The perfect product to complete your rendezvous look! This easy - application shimmer roll will leave you with an instant glow whenever you need to add some glam to your look! We selected a color that could work on all skin types - whether it is applied as an eyeshadow or as a highlighter.

4. Trifle Cosmetics Sublime Lip Scrub in Sugar Pear

A crunchy sugar scrub that will make your lips as soft as butter. It is formulated with Cacao Butter, Sweet Almond Oil and Pecan Seed oil so that it hydrates and nourishes your lips while taking away all dead skin cells. To make this product even more heavenly, it is infused with toffee mixture and pear extract - your lips will thank you for this little treat!

5. Caudalie Vinosource SOS Thirst Quenching Serum

Calling all those with dry and sensitive skin! This is the latest addition to the Caudalie Vinosource family and it is a little gem. With this extra cold weather, your skin can get dehydrated very quickly, so it is important for you to add some moisture to your routine. This serum diffuses water to restore moisture balance and leave your skin soft and supple. The extra grape water and hyaluronic acid added in the formula will give your complexion a radiant and dewy look.

6, Dr. Pawpaw Original Multipurpose Clear Balm

If you are not already familiar with this multipurpose balm, then let us introduce you to the Dr. PawPaw family! These little tubes might look small but they are oh-so powerful! They can be used wherever your skin needs hydration, literally. On your lips, on your face if you have a few dry patches, elbows, feet, cuticles, as a nappy cream, for sun burn, skin irritations - you get the picture! In this month's Beauty Box, you will find the original dr. Pawpaw multipurpose soothing balm, containing three fabulous, all-natural ingredients: fermented Pawpaw fruit (Papaya), Aloe Vera and Olive oil, making this balm a natural beauty must-have!

As well as the last box, this one didn't blew me away either. I do like the products, but I'm not as excited about them. I tried the Bellapierre shimmer already and it's actually really pretty in your inner corner of the eye. I'm also very excited about the Elemis cream.

Hope you enjoyed!

REVIEW: Malie Ultra Hydrating Essence Mask Coenzyme Q10

Hello everyone!

Today's post is another review of sheet mask. I tried the Malie ultra hydrating essence mask with Coenzyme Q10.

I bought it from Ebay. Love the packaging and you get a lot of serum in it - 25g to be exact. It gives the perfect adhesion to your face. Q10 is suppose to keeps your skin moisturized.

It had a weird scent that didn't particularly remind me of something but it wasn't too strong so it didn't bother me and it wasn't noticable when I had the mask on.

It left my skin brighter, had a slight whitening effect and it left my skin more plumped. It's overall a really nice mask and I loved the fact that it was so moist.

It felt very nourishing and moisturizing. Unfortunately it broke me out. The next day I had a big pimple on my cheek and I didn't use any other new products. I think this was to blame :( So sad since I really loved the effect it gave.

I do have another Malie mask in my collection of sheet masks so I will give that one a go as well. 

Hope you enjoyed! :) Happy weekend guys <3

REVIEW: Trend It Up Dazzling Dust Eyeliner 040

Hey loves <3

Recently I've been really using eyeliners a lot and loving the looks with them. Last time I was in Drogerie Markt I decided to buy the eyeliner from Trend it Up's limited edition called Dazzling dust.

There were four different colours in this collection but this one really caught my eye because it was something special and I thought it's gonna suit my green eyes. 

I got it in shade 040, which is sheer grey with green/blue glitter in it, depending on the light. It dries quickly and stays in place all day.

The brush I find ok, nothing special and I wish it would be a little more thick, but anyway it makes the application easy.

It costs around 4€ and if you can still find it in stores (since it was limited edition) I would recommend it to you, if you like something different and unique.

Here's how it looks on me:

Hope you enjoyed, let me know if you like it!

Advice from makeup artist – how to clean you beauty items efficiently

Hey guys!

Today I have a bit different post for you, an advice from a makeup artist! How exciting :)

If your beauty tools are in a bad condition and you don’t clean them often, then you are in for an unpleasant surprise. Makeup gadgets, especially those which are used for the application of foundation or concealer or any other liquid or cream-based makeup tend to get dirty all the time because bacteria are very easily transferred in a liquid environment. This can be terrible for your skin and can lead to irritation and acne problems. 

This is why, as a person who has experience in this area, I recommend you to clean your tools every week or at least once every two weeks in the worst case. I promise you that this will definitely affect your makeup routine in a positive way. The truth is that there is no reason to avoid cleaning your makeup tools more regularly. If you take care of your beauty supplies, you will be able to use them longer and this way you will make a great investment out of them.

Clean your brushes

The best way to get rid of the dirt on your makeup brushes is to use warm water and baby shampoo. Now, tell me that this is not a non-harmful and easy way to clean your makeup tools. Start by wetting your brush under running lukewarm water. Be careful not to wet the place where the handle meets the head. If you wet it, you might wash off some of the glue that actually holds the bristles together. Once the brush is wet you can pour a drop of the shampoo in your palm and use a swirling motion to get the shampoo between the bristles of the brush. Once you think that the dirt and oils have come off the brush, rinse your makeup tool under a running lukewarm water again. Squeeze all of the moisture and if the water which comes off is still not clear repeat the step with the baby shampoo.

When you are sure that your brush is properly cleaned, use a clean cloth or a paper towel to dry the bristles of your brush and restore its shape. Lay your wet brushes on a cloth and let them air dry and they should be ready for use in the morning.

The trick for your makeup sponge

Did you know that a simple bar soap actually makes wonders for the tough stains on your makeup sponge? Just rub the sponge directly into the bar soap and all of the dirt will be stripped off and your sponge will be properly cleaned in an instant. Rinse it with a lukewarm water and squeeze out the moisture. Let the sponge air dry overnight and you will be ready to blend your makeup to perfection.

Don’t forget the tweezers and the pencil sharpener

These beauty tools are often neglected but they actually are full with germs and you should clean them regularly, too. Don’t forget to disinfect your tweezers and pencil sharpener to avoid the bacteria that might stick to them. Use a cotton ball dampened with a rubbing alcohol and rub your beauty tools. This way you can be sure that your beauty gadgets are properly disinfected and ready to be used again.

Spending a fortune on your makeup brushes and sponges is not enough. If you want to have the perfect application and healthy skin, you should take good care for your tools. This means that you should stick to the regular cleaning routine. I promise you that soon this will become like a habit. I guarantee you that both the condition of your skin and the look of your makeup will improve tremendously if you maintain the clean look of your makeup brushes and sponges. 

And we came to the end guys, I hope you enjoyed and learned something new and important ;)


BeautyBigBang Vibration Makeup Brush*

Hello everyone! :)

I had an opportunity again to work with BeautyBigBang.They stock all the sold out crazes but everything is crazy affordable. Their prices are in dollars but they ship internationally and regularly restock their sold out items. They sell a a variety of beauty products, everything from hair and makeup to nails. This time I chose one trendy item.

It's a vibration makeup brush. It's easy to use and works with batteries which are not included.

I find it very interesting and such a unique concept. I've seen reviews about this kind of brushes and always been intrigued.

You get a "holder" for the brush head and 4 different brush heads for different purposes for example applying foundation, blush, etc.

I mainly used it for applying foundation. I have to say it was tricky at first, but then when I figured it out, it was kind of nice. It does take some time to apply the foundation evenly, without streaks, but it's very easy to use. The brush heads are also very soft.

All in all it's an interesting product and if you're intrigued you should definitely try it. BeautyBigBang has it on sale currently for 12,97€.

The delivery takes up to 4 weeks, depending on where you live. They do offer Paypal as a payment method plus free shipping worldwide. 

I do have a 10% off code for you guys, it's KATJA10, if you want to get even more discount ;)

Hope you enjoyed!
