Metal Glam Review

Hello girls, so some time ago I won from Essenee the ome of the products from the TE Metal Glam, and I recieved these :

I won't lay, I was the most exited, when I saw the golden topper ! We don't have this TE in Bulgaria, and I've seen swatches on blogs and loved it ! IT's like amazing ! I'm wearing it right now actually, almoust for a week, whit some white polish as a base - looks amazng! (will post photos of it and some other polishes soon). Before that I was with one of the other polishes - 04 Gold digger - also amazing, just like I'vemelted some gold on my nails - loved it !
01 Steel-ing the scene  04 Gold digger   and   the topper - 01 Steel-ing the scene

When I first saw the stik on eyeliner, I was like "when will I wear this actualy?" Well I did and it was awesome! I have tryied stick on eyeliner from Essence before and loved it, so my problem was that they are in gold and silver... I used the silver ones and everybody complimented me on them ! Have in mind, I alsi used lash glue, when I was going out whit them, for the picture - it has only it's own glue and I have no mascara on, so you can see how it stays on the eye.(and it's a bit closed)
Another product I was exited about was the higllighter, I used one by Catrice, but it\s almoust over and I had my eyes on the one from JB's TE, so i was pretty stocked, when I saw it : ) The shimmer isn\t too much, witch is a problem with some highlighters, easy to apply with a brush and nice coverige
01 gold digger
Now we move on to the lipsgloss, witch gives you a beautiful frosty look onyour lips. The colour looks strangly-purple, but when you put it on it stays like a cool cold pink. The applicator brush has a curv, so it's super easy and comfy to put on yoour lipgloss!
01 petal to the metal
And last, but not least - the eyeshadow in 03 glamour girls - it's a silver sparkaling eyeshadow, witch is nice, but I already have simmilar one again from essence's regular range - 04 starlight (or something like that) I have made a review of it, so I'm not gonna repat myself : )

Beauty Beats TE Blush review

Hey girls,about a week or so ago I both ten blush from Essence's TE "Beauty Beats" (did you know, that apart for sponsoring Justin Bieber's tour and I'm sorry if I have misspelled his name, but were also responsible for this years MTV EMA awards ? how awesome is that ? ). I don't usually use blush apart from stage make-up from my dancer days,because I have naturally rosy cheeks, but it is getting colder and outside  my cheeks are starting to loose this natural blush, so I had to get some help. I own two other blushes - from alvede (dm brand) and essence (rebel TE), but not a compressed one, so when I saw we have this TE in the store I just had to have it !
It is darker, than it the picture : ) It has really nice pigmentation, it's easy to blend and looks natural, because it's matted aka has no shimmer,witch believe it or not is hard to find in our days lol :D

p.s. I have a review of the Metallics TE from Essence and a giveaway : )

October's favorites : )

Hey girls, it's November already, so it's time for last months favorites : )
and my Tally Weijl bag on the BG :D

So let's start whit the thing that I can't live without anymore - that's Bioten's CC cream
Something like the BB creams and I've been using it every single day ever since i bouth it and I really can't live without it ! What it says:
"bioten SKIN MOISTURE CC cream is an advanced moisturizer, delivering multiple benefits for a perfect looking skin, in 1 formula. Based on a combination of advanced natural ingredients and mineral pigments, bioten CC cream covers imperfections, enhances the natural tone of the skin and provides your skin optimum moisture and protection.

With only one movement, bioten CC cream:
  1. 1. Unifies the skin tone and keeps a radiant complexion throughout the day, thanks to mineral pigments and advanced natural actives
  2. 2. Covers imperfections such as blemishes, spots, fatigue signs and fine lines
  3. 3. Illuminates the skin, highlighting its natural tone
  4. 4. Provides immediate moisture which lasts up to 24 hours, thanks to HYDRO NUTRIENT 24H and 100% natural Quince extract deriving from eco-friendly and gentle extravtion methods
  5. 5. Penetrates rapidly the skin due to its light formulation, while providing optimum coverage
  6. 6. Protects the skin from UV radiation and premature ageing with SPF20"    
I agree! You can't even feel you have something on your face, it looks so natural, that the other day a professional make-up artist told me my skin so even and perfect naturaly and when I sid I have something one it, that makes it like that he couldn't believe me. It's for 20+ until 35 years.

Where to buy - Big supermarkets, drogeries, beauty shops
Cost: arount 6 lev/6 euro

Another saver, this time for my lips, is this little baby - the reapir lip balm from nivea. My lips were quit chopped from the cold wind, there was even blood and this balm "cuered"them. it has a white center and a little more colourful outtercoat. It has a really nice frutty? smell (I'm really bad at tetermaning smells ) and a minty effect, it's just marvelous !
Where to buy: Basacly everywere
Cost: arount 5lev/2.50-5 euro

A really nice handcream. Mixa is part of the L'Oreal range and it has wonderful skin care things, espechaly for dry and sensitive skin. I bouth the hand cream, witch has 30% oat milk and is pharaben free ! It's not oily at all and you feel like you have a second skin/gloves on your hands. I dosen't leave anything on my screen(on my phone, the touchsreen) even if I use t right after I've applied the cream !
Where to buy: Most big supermarkets, Beatyshops
Cost: arount 6 lev/3 euro-6 euro

I simply love Herbal Essences and I'm really sad that they don't sell them in Bulgaria anymore ; ( Lucky for me I aksed my father to get me some from Italy, when he was there last mounth on a working trip. I got the split ends ones, because my hair tends to have split ends and I do have an ombre hair, so it's normal for my ends to be more damaged. The smell is amazing, the effect as well,I mean I don't think that there is someone who hasn;t tried them and dosen't remember the old comercial whit the airplane : )
Where to buy: I f you are lucky in every store
Cost: I think it was around 2.50 euro last time that I saw
I use luqid crystals for my hair and he ones from Seri are my fave ones ! I love the effect and the smell, my only problem whit them is that when I apply them, my hands are super oily and I have to wash them after. You can apply crystals on wet or dry hair, apply them more to your ends, not your roots, because they will get greasy. I personaly put 2 pumps, halfway down my hair (ends towrds the middle of my hair)
Where to buy: Big supermarets. Beaty shops
Cost: 6.19 lev

And the mascara - I have  review already -

Have you tried any of these ?

Essence Octoberfest TE review

Hello girls, so recenly I was one of the 12 lucky winners from one of Essence's raffle and today my prize arrived, I got thelip balm, paper lashes, eyeshadow box, naul stickers, twi nai polishes and the purple braclet, all in a cute transparent-orange bag - similar to the blue one from some years ago : )
Let's start with the two polishes - I got the geerna nd the purple one
The purple is dark and only needs one coat to look good, the green one on the other hands is in lght green and has a shimering effect, it also needs 3 coats.
Small, transperent lip balm in a jar. It has a really nice light smell, easy to apply with you finger, althou a bit unhygenic. When I come hope with the pacage I actually went out again to the local big supermarket, so I hava to cross over a bridge, over a river and today is really windy and walking on the bridge only adds more wind, so it was perfect ti try it out. It felt really nice and my lips didn't feel dry at all. All and all this little baby is going in my bag : )
 By now you should know I love lashes and anything to do whit them, so whenI saw this I was pretty stoned. They aremade of something like paper, it's not your normal paper - it's almoust like plastic. I love the fact, that the glue (it has been the same whit all of the fake lash products fro Essence I havetried in the past about 2 years) is in this bright neon blue, so it is really easy to see when the glue has become sticky - when you can't see the glue anymore.
with the glue

I really ike the I 'll most probably incoporate it in to my haloween make-up : )
01 I MOG IT!

2 eyeshadow, mini lipgloss and a turitorial

Small and easy to carry around "gift box" with two eyshadow a pink and purple one, wtch are perfect for a smokey-eyed look and a mini ligloss in a wonderful liht pink colour, witch is perfect for the winter. The eyeshadows arent really pigmenated, so if you are looking for bold olour - this is not for you.

I can't find the pic with the purple braclet, but it looks really cute :)

All and all  I like this TE, for me it's winter-y, so the timing is also great.

 You know sugar has been used and is still beeing use as a main ingridiant for all kinds of scrubs, the lips are no exeption ! It leaves your lips soft and readyu for lipsmacking action ; )
And don't get me started on the smell, it smells really fruity and candy-ish, I mean I wanted to eat it all... it was hard to resist. I'm thinking of going to the store to get atleast one more, I LOVE it : )

Bioten face scrub review

I missed another Friday, I know.... I'm gonna make it up to you somehow, promise ^^
So I've already talked about Biotena and theyr body lotion, witch I still use daily, one of theyr new products is the scrub cream
It's smells like vanilla to me : )
Whit it I have no such problems like whit the foam cream from Nivea - it gets rid of the small imperfections, smells amazing, makes my skin softer and my tan gets more even !
It has a cream like structure and small vanilla (I think) parts, like small dots.
I have luck, so my skin isn't sensitive, so I use it twice a day - in the morning and before going to bet, but if you have normal skin - use it one a day and if you have sensitive skin I would recommend not using scrubs, try the gel one Bioten has fro sensitive skin, it smell amazing and the results are also great : )
Cost:  5.19lv
Where to find: Most drugstores and big hypermarkets

Adidas shower gels updated review

So as some of you may remember I made review of one theyr shoвer gels in late 2011 -
Since then, they changed theyr style and have some new products ! So I would say it's time for an update ^^
Now, I have 4 shower gels in my draw - 3 of them are from Adidas and one is from Nivea (for shaving)I have the one I wrote about (but in it's new package) and it's almost over : (
pic from the Adidas site
They actually have really nice fragrance descriptions on the site, and agree on a 100% whit them
"A wrapping floral fruity fragrance where passion fruit and grapefruit notes are married to floral white notes on a delicate dry down of comfortable vanilla and milky accord."
Can you imagine how that feels on your skin ?

I also have this one, witch is currently half-way finished
pic from the Adidas site
"An original cocktail of exotic fruits twisted with a transparent watery accord and refreshing icy mint facet on a creamy peach and musky base."
This is perfect for the summer or after a work-out and even if you want ti get a fresh start in the morning, it really gives you this nice, minty-cool exotic feeling that is just amazing !

My newest one is this
pic from the Adidas site
"Adidas SHAPE shower cream offers a pleasant fragrance and helps improve the texture of women’s skin. Thanks to aromachology (active cosmetic properties together with a lightly-scented fragrance), Adidas Shape offers a new, double-action technology.
Uuse it daily as a first step to help firm your skin!
 All formulas contain an innovative hydrating formula that gently cleanses while helping to maintain the skin’s natural balance.
a fresh top note leads to a stimulating fruit cocktail accented by spicy nuances of pepper. The floral heart of rose and jasmine brings a touch of femininity while the gentle dry down brings comfort & softness."
This is part of the new line they have (and the only one we have from it right now here in Bulgaria).
I actually got it because I liked the smell and I love all of theyr shower gels, not for the shaping effect. I haven't used it that much, but it again leaves your skin feeling flawless and soft and just amazing ! As far as the "body shape" effects - I don't think I'll be the best person for that, because I've been doing dancing and sports all my life, and I'm in my early 20es, so my body shape around the places where it should help and my skin are in good shape already.

I've also had this one, witch was a gift
pic from the Adidas site
"A bright and joyful blend of lemon and tangerine notes, enhanced with fresh white floral heart notes and enveloping sandalwood and vanilla dry down."
I'm always happy, positive and outgoing, I'm also a suckers for fruity smells, so one would thing this is perfect for me, but nope. The shower gel itself is great, but I don't like the smell that much, which is strange, because just by reading what's inside... wow, but..... It's strange I know, but if you like the smell - the shower gel is great !

In other words I'm really happy whit these shower gels, I still haven't found a downside for them, ather than the fact that at one point they are over and I have to buy a new one :D

Where to get: Any cosmetic store/hypermarket
Price: around 4-5 lev, и понеже виждам,че има много посещения от България напоследък - в момента са намалени на 3,00 (~2,90)лв във всички магазини на DM

Nivea Cleaning mousse Review

Sorry I missed a post or two, but I've been really busy whit some projects, now I'm gonna make-up for the lost posts, starting whit a review of the Nivea's cleaning mouse (foam)
whit my desktop background - my cat ^^

As you can see from the picture, mine is around 60% used, so I think that by now I have an opinion about it.
The product itself has pump, and actually when pump, it doesn't give you gel, but foam !
One pump
Two pumps
I usually use two pumps, the texture is really nice and feels amazing, when you apply it to your face. The smell is the typical Nivea cream sent, that we are all familiar whit and love.
The effect of the mouse ? - I don see or feel any difference, and I'm more than half done whit my bottle, using it it twice a day, I would thing it would be enough to detect a difference, I can only smell the Nivea sent. Small imperfections that usually go away, when I wash my face whit a product are still there. I don''t really like it and I', not planing to get a new one.
Where to buy : In every cosmetic/hypermarket store
Price: Around 7 Lev

And tomorrow is our national holiday here in Bulgaria, so I made a mani to go whit that
Our flag is white - for the freedom, green for the nature and red for the blood we had to spill
The timing to find out that my red and green polishes are over wasn't the best, but these still work
White - Catrice's number 470 Snow Motion - witch is this really beautiful white, this is my best white polish, it just looks amazing in real life!
Green (-ish) - Rimmel's number 045 Misty jade - really nice minty colour, witch sadly is like 3 nails done (I can only use it for small things now, because it has enough polish for about 3 nails left)
Red (redish-pinkish) - Essence's number 02 Princessorize - from the Crazy Times TE, witch has this glittering effect on it
Sadly Catrice changed theyr nail polish lines, so trey don't have this one anymore, but they are changing it as we speak, so you still may be able to get one, it will even be - 50%
Rimmel changed they nail polish line and don't have this one anymore, they have a similar one, but I liked the old one more
Essence's one was part of a TE, so you can't find it anymore

Catrice's Glamour Doll mascara + nail polish review

Hey girls, how has the weather been where you are ? Here in Bulgaria it rained yesterday for the whole day and today was so sunny and warm... I felt like it was spring already !
View from my balcony : )
I managed to get my hands on some money and went on a small shopping spree, I got high-waisted denim shorts (only 25lv, on sale from 50lv, woohooo), The Glamour Doll mascara from Catrice, witch I waned to try one polish, because theyr whole range of nail polishes are on a -50% sale, because they are updating them and the transparent matting powder from Essence,witch was again on a -50% sale, some food and my money was gone -.- I'm hoping to get a change to go again, before they replace everything, because they have some awesome stuff, that's going to be no more : (

Let's start whit the mascara, you may have noticed that I am a huge lash freak, so when i saw on the Internet page of Catrice ( this new "Glamour Doll" mascara, I just had to have it !
On the site it says
"Doll Eyes are dominating the international catwalks– this calls for our specially developed elastomer brush. Why? Simple: it captures a lot of the creamy mascara texture, spreads it well and covers each individual lash without weighing it down. The result: extra volume, length and density. That’s how to get huge doll eyes! Opthalmologically tested. "

Do I like it - yes, do I agree on a 100% whit the description above - no
The wand is great, kind-of like the definition one Maybelline use to have - it can bend.
My "problem" whit it, if I can even call it a problem, is that it doesn't give me volume, but my lashes are naturally very volume-y,so it doesn't matter : )
It gives you lashes a "false lash"effect, makes your lashes look thicker, like plastic,but in a good way, they are still flexible, but have this shine. (I should really save up for a new camera)

Where to buy: Places where they sell Catrice in your area
Cost: 8.19lv

And this is the polish
510 Bye, Bye Birdy!
Please, avoid the fact that I still haven't cleaned around my nails :D
Natural sunlight

As I've said before - it's really easy to apply, on the pic above it has only one coat on ! That's right, only one : )
Where to buy: From places that sell Catrice in your area
Cost: Now they are getting rid of them, so: 2.55lv

What kind of polishes do you prefer - shiny or matte ? I prefer matte, but it's really hard to find any matted polishes : ( Any ideas ?

DM's hair complex review (das gesunde plus)

How was your week ? Here today got very windy -.-
I have some problems n my knee and all the vitamins and stuff go there (organism reflex) and I get pimples, my nails are weaker and my hair lost all it's heath, so I had to do something and I got this baby
It's from DM's own brand "Das gesunde plus" and it's a complex of vitamins for the hair (and nails). It has 60 capsuls and 1 capsul
includes - 1.4mg vitamin B1
              -  4.6mg    B2
              -  2.0mg    B6
              -  1.0mg    b12
and a few more, witch I can't read from the Bulgarian label and I have no idea what it means in German. You have to take one per day - I take mine around 10:00 in the evening and it has no taste.
I have only about 10 left and the situation is getting better and better (whit my hair and nails). In combo whit the things from my previous post my hair got it's healthy shine back, no more split ends (have in mind that I did cut my hair, but since than it's been OK ). So I must say that it only did good to me, if you have similar problems and have a DM store in your city - what are you waiting for ?

Where to buy - At all DM stores
Cost - around 6 lev /  6 euro or 3 euro, I'm not really sure if they change the prices :D

Syoss Oleo Intense (S + C) review

I know I said I'll see you girls next Friday, but .... you can't blame me : )
So for some time now we had the SYOSS hair products in my country, but my friends didn't like any of the products ,so I've never tried them... well that was until a month and a half ago, when I was looking for a new shampoo for my damaged hair (because of my knee, all the vitamins are going there and my hair was a mess, I had to cut over 20cm from it : ( and I get brake outs on my face and it's just awful... can't wait for it to be over) and I saw they were on a promo prise and though "what the heck, let's give it a try" - best decision I ever made !
They had pumps, beside the caps, so I just put the pumps on and threw away the caps :D
First of all can you imagine I've been using these since the middle of December, that I wash my hair two times a week and they are still this full ? I'm not joking, I just took this pic - yes, they are that good and economical.
When having the longer hair I needed 8 pumps, now I need 6 pumps of each - the pump is very economic by the way - and the shampoo itself makes a lot of foam. They smell really nice,I can't describe it .. may be citrus or something like that ? I'm bad at explaining smells, so you'll have to excuse me :D
They are thermo activated, that means they are perfect for the winter, because you can wash your hair in  the morning, dry it (they don't only protect your hair from the heat, they actually start worring when the hair is heated !) and go out ! I personally blow-dry my hair, because otherwise it gets everywhere and curls and stuff like that.
Where to get:  In most big stores, cosmetic stores, pharmacies ..
Cost: They were on a promotion, so they cost 5.39 lv. each, I think they are around 7.00lv, normally (you can already convert that in euro, right ?)

So don't believe everything that your friends say about different products, because people have different type of hair,skin and tastes : )

Catrice Allround Concearler review

Today I saw my blog and seeing it so ... empty, made me realize that I've totally forgot about it !
So I'm having a new schedule for uploading - every Friday ^ ^

We finally have a store in my city that sells Catrice (yeah) and of course, according  to Murphy's Laws I have to be broke at this time -.- Anyways I managed to buy a white eye pencil (I think I have a review of it somewhere around here) and the Allround Concealer

* picture taken from the Catrice homepage *
I tried taking swatches, but it didn't work out, because of the quality of my camera - for witch I am sorry. As it says on the back of the box
Beige - covers imperfections Pink - conceals black circles and Green - neutralises redness
In mine, the first one is the green one - I have some redness around my nostrils, in the outer corner of my eyes, and right now due to lack of vitims - pimples and to be honest I do see a difference
Than we have the pink one - under my eyes - definitely a difference there
I use the dark beige for the lower tip of my nose, because it point down (if you can understand me) to make it look normal and on both sides of the nose a lill' bit to make it thinner
The middle beige is my colour, so I use it to correct imperfections  and I use the lightest one under my brows and on the tip of my nose for contours : )
I must say that I once again wasn't disappointed and I'm happy whit it, although I've never actually had any concealer before, but still :D
Where to get - all stores that sell Essence, it's part of the regular range
Cost - 7.19 lv (as I've said before 7.19 euro or 3.60 euro, as I'm not sure if they turn the prices)

See ya next Friday, have a great full of smiles weekend : )
