Peony Cosmetics Shadow Trio 73,5% Natural Palette | Review
Peony Cosmetics is one of the beauty brands supporting the ‘green’ philosophy of the makeup production. The research of the brands and products prior the review can sometimes affect our judgement of the product. At least that what happened with this shadow trio palette. Before we proceed, we have to clear out few things. As the time goes by, we learn more about the importance of the chemical ingredients our skin has to deal with every day. Naturally, it is an ongoing process and we are far from being specialists in that subject. We do honestly appreciate all the niche brands that formulate their products with care for the environment and our skin wellbeing just as the Peony Cosmetics does. But this is something we learned after we actually used this Shadow Trio Palette. The first impression of this tiny eyeshadow palette wasn’t very positive. The Matchbox Size The mini size of the packaging can be considered a pro or a con. But it is very petite eyeshadow palette. It is shorter than the actual lipstick tube. You might need some extra sharp object to open this plastic container, or you might loose a nail or two. On the other hand, it is a very travel-friendly option. However, it is not the cheapest one. At the official web page of the Peony Cosmetics, this palette retails for $18. The 3 grammes of product you get makes this eyeshadow quite up in price in comparison with other eyeshadow palettes, even the animal-cruelty free ones. We got this palette in the Styletone Beauty Box. So we had to pick our jaws off the floor when we were putting this review together. It might be that the price point can be explained by the use fo the natural and organic ingredients instead of synthetic ones. Ingredients: talc**, mica**, Ethylhexyl Palmitate**, zinc stearate, silica**, kaolin**, phenoxyethanol. [+/- (may contain /Peut contenir) mica**, titanium dioxide (CI 77891)**, iron oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499)**, blue 1 lake (CI 42090)]. *Organic (BIO) **Natural. As the name of palette suggests, it is in 73,5% make out of natural ingredients. The After Dark Trio The colours were selected with the evening makeup look in mind. Those three shadows are just enough to do a complete makeup look. There is lovely highlight shade, dark chocolate brown to smoke out the look and the iridescent golden shadow for extra oompf. Each of the shadows picks up differently from the pan and apply differently on the eyelid. The absolute star is the cool brown shade with the coppery gold particles. It can be easily build up but do not expect opaque coverage on your eyelid. This shade blends like a dream with the other colours. The highlight shade feels the driest and has a lot of kick back. The golden shadow is not as impressive on the eyelid if you do not wet the brush. For the look below we used a bit of facial mist just to force it to cling to the shadow brush. Application with a finger doesn’t really work either. Peony Cosmetics Shadow Trio Look You definitely can make this Trio work. But it this easy eye makeup can be done with the Milani’s Bare Necessities palette which is more versatile, and the brown shades are warmer making a more cohesive combo with the golden glitter. And Milani is also animal cruelty-free brand but with a more traditional take on ingredients. With that being said, it is a bit difficult for us to add this palette to the must haves basket. In the end, you have to decide whether it is a product you would like to invest in. So although this palette didn’t rock our boat completely we do suggest you have a look at their assortment.
Perfect Summer Base Recipe From Catrice Cosmetics
Catrice Cosmetics has one of my favourite drugstore lip products. I had few of their eyeshadow palettes, but they have been a pass for me. After I had heard amazing things about their base products, I decided to give them a go. I was intrigued by they high coverage and waterproof promises behind them. With the temperatures spiking again, having a makeup with excellent longevity is a must for me. In the spirit of the summer makeup preparations, I got myself the Lancome 24 Hour Makeup Foundation. I was speechless when it started to wear off after 3 hours. It was supposed to be ‘the next best thing’. Last week I visited the Catrice Cosmetics counter, and now I can tell you that I do prefer the HD Liquid Coverage Foundation over it. HD Liquid Coverage Foundation Catrice Cosmetics HD Liquid Coverage Foundation in 030 Sand Beige Before I start to coat this foundation with sugar let me first mention few drawbacks. The biggest con of the HD Liquid Coverage Foundation is the pipette applicator. For a thicker formula like this one, it can be a bit messy to get the product out of the glass bottle. The formula is very creamy. My regular all face-dotting technique works better for more liquidy foundations. I find it is better to apply it in sections. It does blend well with fingers, brushes and beauty sponges. One layer provides medium coverage. It can be easily built up even more, but it doesn’t have a capacity to cover my beauty spots completely. The colour of my darkest moles still peeks through. I have oily skin, so what might be a mattifying property to you for me might goes unnoticed. I do not know if it is my skin type or just the formulation that leaves the foundation feeling bit tacky. So it is my personal preference to set it with powder afterwards. What I love the most about this foundation is the even and natural looking skin without the mask effect. It does wear longer on me than the mentioned before 24 Hour Makeup from Lancome, and all this for a fraction of the price! Catrice HD 030 Sand Beige Liquid Coverage Foundation 30 ml – € 6,99 Liquid Camouflage High Coverage Concealer Catrice Cosmetics Liquid Camouflage High Coverage Concealer in Porcelain and Light Beige The concealers are slightly more scented than the foundation. It is not an overpowering smell, but it is definitely noticeable. The formula is creamy and easy to blend. The doe foot applicator grabs perfect amount of product. One layer provides medium coverage. The under eye area is crease free for long hours. I tested it on my hand under the water stream and let me tell you, once this concealer sets you do have to use makeup remover to get if off properly. The 010 Porcellain shade works great on the blueish area around my eyes. Afterwards, I like to add the 020 Light Beige to mask the pinkish undertones left after colour correcting. The Porcellain shade is not as light as I thought it would be. Also, the undertone might not be suit many people overall. Swatches in daylight I usually have issues with the concealers. They tend to leave my skin dry and they exaggerate the texture and fine lines. The liquid Camouflage does none of it! I can add it to the list of my favourite drugstore concealers! Liquid Camouflage 010 Porcellain High Coverage Concealer 5ml – € 3,59 Liquid Camouflage 020 Light Beige High Coverage Concealer 5 ml – € 3,59 Prime and Fine Mattifying Powder Catrice Cosmetics Prime and Fine Mattifying Powder in 010 Translucent The perfect summer makeup base is not complete without a mattifying powder. This plastic packaging contains a mirror so you can always touch up on the go. I am very impressed how finely milled The Prime and Fine is. This translucent powder leaves the skin looking flawless. It is my to go powder on the no-makeup-days. I might be imaging things, but I do think it minimises the appearance of my pores even without the serums underneath. It can also be successfully used for setting the under eye concealer. It doesn’t dry out the skin at all. Prime And Fine 010 Translucent Mattifying Waterproof Powder 9 g – € 4,99 Catrice Cosmetics base look The three products, foundation, concealer and powder, are a high street recipe for a flawless looking skin. I like that the Foundation covers acne scarring on my cheeks with just one layer. I can have that effect with one of my favourites – Milani 2-in-1 Foundation, but the HD Liquid Coverage doesn’t transfer that much on a very hot day, and it is even more affordable. If you haven’t tried the Catrice Cosmetics makeup base products yet, you shouldn’t hesitate. They are great value for a price!
The Physicians Formula Murumuru Butter Light Bronzer – Thumbs up!
My pores reaction to the bronzers and highlighters containing Mica is quite rapid. Juts few seconds after application my pores expand and the bad skin appearance more than once, forced me to redo my makeup. It is the main reason why I stick to the matte products most of the time. The Murumuru Butter Light Bronzer from Physicians Formula is one of the products that almost all beauty gurus speak very highly of. In the end, I went against my fear of spending, yet another, €20 on a product that can end up in my donation box. A few weeks later I am obsessed with it! Makeup With a Skin Care Benefits In my review of the Shimmer Strips, I mentioned the ideology in the formulation of this brand’s makeup products. This hypoallergenic bronzer was infused with three types of butter. The Murumuru butter is well known for its moisturising properties. The Cupuacu and Tucuma butter are another skin benefiting ingredients on the list. The formula is oil free and promises not to clog our pores. The formula is oil free and promises not to clog our pores. The colourful packaging is very well made. It contains a high-quality mirror making the product touch-ups friendly. You can use for it attached sponge if you like. Do not be afraid of the glow! The Murumuru Butter Light Bronzer does provide a subtle glow to the skin. It does not make a face overly sheen and keeps the face oils under control. Personally, I haven’t noticed more sebum production in the bronzed areas vs. the only powdered ones. What tends to happen when I use shimmery blushes or bronzers. Physicians Formula Murumuru Butter Light Bronzer – Swatch in natural daylight It is suitable to use on the bare skin, but I like to use it on top of my mattifying foundations. Otherwise, the bronzer’s glow can make me look too dewy after few hours. But if you have normal skin go ahead and use it on its own. This is the recipe for the Gisele’s Brazilian glowing skin! My friend gave it a try when she was visiting, and it did look stunning even though she has slightly darker skin tone than me. Physicians Formula Murumuru Butter Light Bronzer Look I like the look and wear time of the Photo Focus™ Foundation from Wet n Wild. But I got myself light shade, so I apply this bronzer all over my face on top of the powder, to adjust the colour. I layered up the colour in the strategic places like cheeks, nose for the picture above. The bronzer gives the appearance of very healthy skin. You can achieve the ultimate glow effect by adding even more product. This bronzer has a silky texture, and it is easy to blend, even if you grab too much product at once. Durability is fantastic; it wears lovely even with very high temperatures outside. It is unique consistency. I understand why so many people love it. I also like how it look as an eyeshadow. It makes fabulous transition shade! Overall, the Murumuru Butter Light Bronzer is oily skin approved! I got my Murumuru Butter Light Bronzer at Boozyshop (makeup retailer in Benelux, Europe).
Lookfantastick Beauty Box June 2017 | Review
Lookfantastick Beauty Box for the month of June offers a lovely mix of products. Among worldwide available beauty boxes, LF is still the one that holds strong in my opinion. The included brands and sizing of the products that actually allows me to evaluate whether I would like to buy a full-size product is the biggest advantage over the others. The Wanderlust Edition What’s in the LF beauty box for June 2017? The Wanderlust edition is filled with goodies we can find useful during our upcoming summer travels. I have been testing the products for the last week. Among the skin and hair care and two makeup items, I have found at least two that I can recommend. Obviously, I always enjoy reading the ELLE UK magazine included in each box. First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads 60 Pads – €28,80 First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads Saturated with glycolic and lactic acid facial pads from the First Aid Beauty were a beauty life saver. I run out of my Paula’s Choice Glycolic Acid and my skin texture started to deteriorate. (Currently, I am expecting another delivery from The Ordinary with their toning solution) The pads were immediately implemented in my nighttime routine. The LF Beauty Box generous packaging with 28 pads will last for a full month treatment. If you ‘ve never used AHA before this might be a great option for you to start with. The concentrations of acids are suitable for the daily usage. So there is no uncomfortable tingling sensation. The AHAs are irreplaceable for bringing out the natural glow of the skin and evening out the skin discoloration. It is a necessary step for me to deal with the dark spots left after acne. Monu Rosewood Reviving Mist 180 ml – €24,45 MONU Rosewood Reviving Mist I use it as an additional skin care step, after the AHA and before the night cream.The MONU Rosewood Mist leaves a subtle glow on the skin so I skip it in the morning. But if you have dry skin you are going to love this mist, especially if you are heading to the beach. I spray it all over my face, neck and decolletage so this 40 ml packaging should last me for another two weeks, give or take. Kerastase Resistance Bain Force Architecte 250ml – €22,95 Kerastase shampoo and Balance Me Balancing Face Moisturiser There were various options of the Kerastase shampoo (80ml bottle) in the box. I received Resistance Bain Force Architect – the strengthening shampoo for damaged hair. I noticed that my hair feel slightly thicker afterwards but the €10 I spent on the Dr Organic shampoos is already a bit of a splurge for me. Balance Me Balancing Face Moisturiser 50 ml – €29,45 I do not have good experiences with the Balance Me skin care. It is great that their products are free from parabens, DEA, mineral oils and sulphates among others. Still, they never managed to knock me out of my socks. The Balancing Face Moisturiser is supposed to eliminate shine and prevent spots. With my recent Figs and Rouge discoveries, this moisturiser is rather average. It does leave skin mattified for few hours though. Skin feels soft but when I smile I can feel it beeing tight if you now what I mean. So it might be a better solution for you beauty lovers with very oily complexions. I do not want to waste this 20 ml packaging so probably I will pass it over to a friend. BellaPierre Cosmetics Shimmer Powder Eyeshadow 2,35 g – €15,95 BellaPiere Shimmer Highlighter in Exite The Shimmer Highlighter is the name mentioned in the LF beauty book included in this box. But it is an actual Shimmer Powder Eyeshadow. This formula works great both on eyelids as it does on the cheek bones so no damage was done 🙂 I was surprised by its wear time on the eyelids. If you want to avoid eye irritation use a glitter glue I was surprised by its wear time on the eyelids. If you want to avoid eye irritation use a glitter glue or an adhesive with it. I used very affordable Awsome Liquid Eye Primer from Makeup Revolution with it. Shade Exite I received is very finely milled so it might be that a decent setting spray will be just enough for you to keep it in place. Hailey Baldwin for Modelco Super Lips Lipgloss in Biz – €20 Hailey Baldwin for Modelco Super Lips Lipgloss in Biz The last makeup item in the box is a mini sized Super Lips Lipgloss from Modelco. it is one of the products created with cooperation with Hailey Baldwin. The product is a bestseller at modelcomsetics.com. Shade Biz is almost transparent on my lips. I like that it moisturises the lips and leaves them soft after the gloss wears off. The formula is slightly sticky. Against the claims, I do not find it to be long-lasting. But it is nice lipgloss. What I see myself buying afterwards would be the Facial Radiance Pads and the Mist. I think they are great addition to the skin care regime. In total 4 out 6 products in the Wanderlust box deserves thumbs up from me. The Lookfantastick Beauty Box subscription starts at €15.50 per month. Including free worldwide delivery.
The Secret Key Multi Cell Night Repair Ampoule Review | Korean Beauty
The Multi Cell Night Repair Ampoule caught my attention with its obvious bottle design. I was intrigued enough to Google this serums reviews when I was shopping during sales at YesStyle.com. There is a wide range of Korean beauty products available over there. Especially from the brands, that not so widely distributed here in Europe. I was surprised about how affordable the Asian beauty stash was over there. I did have to wait for my package for a few weeks but in the end, it was all worth it! Dupe for Advanced Night Repair Serum from Estee Lauder? Secret Key Multi Cell Night Repair Ampoule Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II is a high-end skin care item. It costs almost €100 for 50 ml in comparison with €14.50 for the same amount of this Secret Key’s serum. I don’t think that anybody should expect the same skin treatment and anty-aging benefits out of the two. However, I do believe that consistent skin care, even if it is a just gentle wash and moisturising with Nivea cream every day, makes a visible difference along the years. It is just something that I have noticed with my parents and my aunts. Wouldn’t you agree? Using fancy serum once a year doesn’t appeal to me. Sure it would be great to afford the best possible products out there, but for most of us, it is not a case. Multi Cell Night Repair Ampoule Ingredients This serum contains several active ingredients. Unfortunately, the majority of the text on the box is written in Korean. But I was able to find the complete list online. Ingredients: Water, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Arbutin, Niacinamide, Alkohol, Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Methylparaben, Dimethicone, Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Carbomer, Triethanolamine, Xanthan Gum, Tomato, Camellia Sinensis, Vitis vinifera, Adenosine, Disodium EDTA, Fragrance. I am still learning to identify ingredients that my skin responds badly too. There are few here that are known for exaggeration of the acne, like Dimethicone and Triethanolamine. Luckily for me after using this serum every night for few weeks and sometimes even in the morning I haven’t noticed anything disturbing. In contrary, my skin seems to love this serum and I think it won’t’ disappoint you either. The Multi Cell Night Repair Ampoule also contains plant stem cells. They are at the end of the list but still, should be in sufficient concentrations to do some good for your skin. Grapes provide vitamins A, B and D to enhance skin resilience against the environmental pollution. Tomatoes contribute to the brighter and clearer skin. Catechin and tannin from the green tea will soothe your tired skin and absorb moisture. Visible results You can expect the immediate moisture boost to your skin right after first application. If you have subtle pigmentation issues this serum should be also of help. I noticed that my skin was getting brighter just after few days. I observe gradual evening of the skin tone. If you have acne scarring like me it might the product to try out. If yo have more stubborn and deep pigmentation issues you can try more concentrated Niacinamide product. Actually, I was considering buying its solution from The Ordinary but I decided to wait for my current serums to be over. Also, The Ordinary product can be good if you have active acne. But I have never tried I before so I can only rely on the references from other users. If you do not mind waiting for the delivery from the YesStyle.com this serum might be very effective and affordable addition to your skin care regime. You can use our affiliate link if you want to: Secret Key – Multi Cell Night Repair Ampoule 50 ml – € 14.95.
How to Reclaim Your Beauty with the Power of Nature | Organic Beauty
The world we are living in is growing unhealthier. As a result, we are being bombarded by a myriad of products labelled green and organic. Often these items are no more than catchy propaganda that tries to cash in on the concerns of the day. Be it food, cosmetics or makeup; it is necessary for your health and well-being to consider more natural and environmentally-friendly products. These offer a range of splendid benefits which will easily win you over, once you understand that you can live comfortably and without sacrifices using the power of nature. We have compiled for you a quick beginner’s guide to living healthily and naturally. Organic Skin Care Everyone likes to take good care of their skin and body in general, which is why we use a number of products each day. Face and hand creams, body lotions, moisturisers, tonics, sunscreen, perfumes, the list is endless. Another thing we normally do is failing to check the ingredient list, which is a big mistake. Many of these products contain ingredients that research is starting to link to cancer and Alzheimer’s disease, which is horrible even to consider. This is why going natural is a powerful trend. Natural cosmetics aren’t new on the market, but they are becoming increasingly popular and important, widening their range of toiletries. So, you cannot complain anymore about how it is difficult to find quality, all-natural products for all body parts, as these are becoming more versatile and more sophisticated each year. We know that jumping on the organic bandwagon isn’t an easy decision since there is still the dilemma of “real organic” – “not real organic”, which is why we recommend this green beauty blog, where you can learn in great detail about eco-beauty. Organic Makeup Makeup is a big part of our lives. By deciding to avoid chemical-based products and opt for green beauty instead, you will be doing yourself and the planet a world of good. Don’t stray too far into the unknown though, since “organic” can be a deceptive term, so instead, choose mineral makeup from established brands like Nude by Nature. These products go light on your skin, are non-toxic and highly effective. The extensive range of makeup products is formulated with all-natural ingredients and no preservatives and remains top-notch in the beauty world. Moreover, they are rich in nutrients and herbal extracts which nourish and illuminate your skin. Forget about artificial fragrances that can have a range of unwanted effects. Embrace the nature-loving scents derived from the natural ingredients. These products have gone such a long way, and now it’s high time you tested some of their amazing benefits. DIY Products Chances are you’ve already tried some DIY facial mask or hair concoction. The main benefits of DIY are that you use ingredients you already have at home and that you know exactly what’s in them. Not to mention that it’s quick and inexpensive. Here we give you two ideas to try out in your kitchen ASAP. Firstly, all you need for this exfoliating scrub is three tablespoons of coffee grounds, a tablespoon natural oil of your choice (olive, coconut, or almond) and a tablespoon of brown sugar. Mix the dry ingredients, then add oil, and finally apply onto your face in gentle circular motions. This coffee scrub is gold. It will eliminate impurities and dead skin cells, making your face fresh and radiant. Another thing you should try is the banana facial mask. You just need a ripe banana that you can mash up into a smooth paste, then apply it to your face and neck. It has excellent moisturising properties. And you can prepare it in just a couple of minutes. We hope you will try some of these ideas and understand that nature can be your greatest ally in reclaiming your beauty. Real organic goes a long way and offers unparalleled benefits for your body. Pamper yourself with natural, nutrient-rich, and eco-friendly products.

5 Style Tips for Yoga Beginners
Have you just recently decided to take up yoga and you’re still learning the ropes? If yes, don’t worry. Although it may seem that there are quite a lot of things to think about when preparing for your yoga class, it’s not that hard. And, to help you with some of the issues and questions you may have, we have prepared five style tips which will help you, yoga beginners out there, look fabulous and feel comfortable during your training. Choose a comfortable top Yoga requires a lot of movements in all possible directions, so the main rule is that you wear a top which won’t be too tight and prevent you from moving freely. Furthermore, make sure that the neckline is not too low if you’re a woman since instead of concentrating on your exercises, you’ll constantly obsess over what can be seen when you bend. For these reasons, a classic tank top is our personal favourite since your arms will be free and you won’t have to worry whether or not everything is in its place. Women should wear a sports bra You may have never worn a sports bra before, but once you start with yoga, you won’t be able to live without it. Just imagine a Bikram or Hot Yoga class in your regular bra which holds you so tight that you start sweating with every slightest movement. Instead, a low-impact sports bra will make you feel much more comfortable, and you’ll stay cool throughout the lesson. Comfortable pants are the most important Once you have chosen a perfect top, pair it with amazing yoga pants or leggings. They are extremely comfortable, so you’ll be able to move freely and be focused on your poses. You can find these clothes in various well-known shops, and one of our favourite brands is certainly Sivana Spirit. So, search the internet and find what you like. However, you must keep other things in mind as well. And, although there is nothing as comfortable as leggings, in the case of a Bikram class or hot summer days, you may not want to cover your legs, so go for bicycle shorts instead. They are very practical since they are not too short or loose, so you won’t have to worry that someone will see your private parts. Accessorize When we say that you should accessorise, dear yoga beginners, we certainly don’t expect you to wear a statement necklace or layered bracelets, but something more yoga-friendly. For example, you can go for a nice headband or a hair tie which will match the colour of your outfit, but it will be practical at the same time since it will keep your hair out of your face allowing you to exercise freely. Another fantastic accessory piece can be a pair of yoga gloves. With them not only will you look like a yoga professional, but they will prevent your hands from slipping and save you the embarrassment of falling in front of everybody. Don’t forget a towel and a yoga mat Another important rule – don’t forget a towel since you can get quite sweaty during your lesson, and we’ll all agree that there is nothing worse than having sweat falling into your eyes while you’re exercising. Finally, investing in a stylish and high-quality yoga mat is of the utmost importance. For example, if you have tender knees, go for a thicker mat. It may cost a few bucks more, but it will save you a lot of troubles and make your lessons comfortable. Also, make sure that the mat you choose is not a slippery one since this is the worst nightmare ever of every yoga enthusiast. As you can see, only five steps are enough to get you ready for your first yoga lesson. All you need to consider is what makes you feel comfortable and go for it. It’s time for some yoga!

Sassy Feather-Trimmed Shoes are Everything Even though feather-trimmed mules have been considered a boudoir accessory in the very beginning, the truth is that they’re now one of the hottest trends in the fashion industry.
