I recently bought this nude eyeshadow palette from bangerhead.fi and wanted to show you what it looked like and some swatches of the eyeshadows. The eyeshadows are really buttery and pigmented, the mattes are so good. I really like the warm tone of this eyeshadow palette, the colors are also kind of unique, especially the yellow golden shade (Snobby). The dark brown/eggplant shadow with pink shimmer in it is just beautiful.

Min favorit skönhetsprodukt att använda den här veckan har varit Essence's Make Me Brow ögonbrynsgel. Den är helt fantastisk. Många människor har sagt att denna ögonbrynsgel är en dupe för Benefit's Gimme Brow och jag önskar att jag hade den så att jag kunde jämföra produkterna. Tyvärr är Benefit inte tillgänglig i Finland och därför har jag inte fått tag på den. Men jag tror verkligen att de är likadana.
Som ni ser på borsten så finns det små fibrer på den och dessa fibrer förlänger och ger volym till dina ögonbryn. Jag älskar att använda denna ögonbrynsgel när jag har bråttom på morgonen och vill att mina ögonbryn ska se bra ut.
My latest favorite makeup item has been Essence's Make Me Brow eyebrow gel. It's so good. Many people has said that it's a dupe for the Benefit Gimme Brow and I really wish I had that one to compare this one. Unfortunately, they don't sell Benefit products here in Finland, so I haven't got a chance to get it. I do think that they are very similar, at least from what I've seen and heard on the web.
As you can see on the tiny brush, there are fibers on it, and these fibrers extend the length of your brows and make them more voluminous. I love to use this eyebrow gel in the morning when I'm in a rush but still want my brows to look good.
L'Oreal True Match Foundation. This was my first foundation ever and it has a sentimental value, that's why I can't throw it away. But to be honest with you, I don't like it anymore. When I first got it I really liked it because I had nothing to compare it to, but now when I have this huge collection of foundations, I've realized that it's not for me. Bare in mind that this is the old formula so I'm not talking about the new one. (But I've heard that the new formula is amazing and so much better than the old one.) Why don't I like it? The consistency of the foundation is waayy to runny but the finish is powdery, heavy and really dry. You would think that the lightweight and runny consistency would give you a glowy, semi-matte, skin like finish, but that's not the case. It's just too heavy for me and it just sits like super dry powder on top of my skin. It clings on to my dry patches (which I have all over my face) and I simply hate it.
Essence Longlasting Lipliner "Girl Next Door" (right swatch) and Lipliner "In The Nude" (left swatch). Don't get me wrong, I ADORE their lipliners but the colors of these are why I regret buying them. I did get the longlasting one as a christmas gift but when swatched, the color looks so much more vibrant and darker! It doesn't really show up on the swatch but in real life, it swatches beautifully. Here comes the part that I hate about this color: it looks horrible on my lips. I don't even have pigmented lips but somehow the lipliner looks ashy and just light grey on my lips. I don't want a nude, light grey color on my lips. Even though it swatches darker and more pink on my hand, it looks like a super light grey on my lips. I don't know what the problem is but it does look good on lighter complexions.
The "In the nude" lipliner is from their regular line of wooden pencils. I love them but this color is also way too light for me. It swatches beautifully but it just doesn't show up on my lips. It's too light and ashy and makes my lips look like concealer lips. Same thing as the previous lipliner. Luckily, it's not grey.
L.A. Girl Pro Conceal "Orange Corrector". So many youtubers have raved about this corrector and I decided one day to order it online. I don't even know where to start. This formula is truly creamy but it's too thick. But at the same time, it's too thin once blended. It doesn't cover anything, nor does it correct my spots, dark circles or dark mouth area. It honestly doesn't do anything for me. The thing I dislike the most about this corrector is that it doesn't set. It's funny, because every time I swatch it on my arms or hands, it dries and sets very quickly. But it doesn't do that on my face. It mixes with my foundation on top of it and turns it into an orange mess.
Maybelline Lash Sensational Waterproof Mascara. I recently wrote a review about this mascara on my blog, and I still think it's a decent mascara. It's definitely not the best one out there but it's okay. After using it for a couple more weeks, I've realized that there's product buildup on the wand and it's so freaking thick. It's almost impossible for me to apply this mascara without a paper tissue to wipe off - not only the excess, but basically everything - from the wand. It just doesn't do it for me and I really regret that I didn't buy my favorite mascara instead.
So this was my "Products I Regret Buying"-post! Please don't take it too personally, not all products work for everyone and that's not going to change anytime soon. These were just some products that were not necessarily bad, but just not good enough and I really regret buying them because I don't use them. Do you have any products you regret buying?
Maybelline's Lash Sensational Mascara (vattentät) är en bra mascara. Min första reaktion när jag applicerade den på mina fransar var att fransar såg mycket längre ut och de var separerade. Jag skulle säga att denna mascara ger mera längd än volym. Borsten har två "sidor", den är aningen böjd och är av gummi. Ett problem med denna mascara som jag annars inte har med vattentäta mascaror, är att mina fransar inte är lika böjda efter ett par timmar. Jag vet inte om det bara är mina fransar som inte vill hållas upp, men jag har inte använt en annan ögonfransböjare och mina ögonfransar har alltid hållits uppe med andra vattentäta mascaror.
Maybelline's Lash Sensational mascara (in waterproof) is a good mascara. When I used it the first time, my first impression was that my eyelashes were longer and separated. I would say that this mascara gives more length than volume. The brush/wand has "two" sides, it's slightly curved and made of rubber. One problem I had with this mascara that I normally don't have with other waterproof mascaras is, that my lashes don't stay as curled after a couple of hours. I don't know if it's just my eyelashes but I haven't used another eyelash curler and my eyelashes have always stayed curled when using other waterproof mascaras.
Som ni ser på den förstorade bilden på borsten så finns det två sidor (eller delar). Den övre delen har mindre taggar och den ser inte lika böjd ut som den nedre delen. Den nedre delen har längre taggar och håller mera av själva produkten. Ett stort tips till den som vill få ut det mesta av mascaran: använd inte den mer böjda (nedre) delen! Här lagras mera mascara och det blir lätt klumpigt på fransarna. Om du vill få mera volym och längd, använd då den nedre delen men borsta igenom ögonfransarna med den övre delen för att separera fransarna.
As you can see in the zoomed in picture on the wand, there are two sides to the mascara wand (or should I call them parts?). The upper part has smaller and raised rubber things on it and doesn't look as bent as the lower part. The lower part has longer rubber things sticking out (I honestly don't know what to call them) and stores a lot of product. A tip for you who wants to get the most out of the mascara: do not use the more curved side (lower part) of the mascara wand! Your lashes will easily look clumpy if you use the lower part.
