Let's Talk About Glasses!

Hiii lovely ladies! I'm sorry for the lack of posting but college has been killing me! I've been feeling kinda of sick so I'm home today (: I wanted to do a quick post, not about cosmetics this time, but more about fashion which is something I LOVE too!

I wear glasses since I was 11 years old. I can't see a thing in front of me, so without them I'm basically blind. 
I always loved wearing glasses, I was never that kind of girl who never wore them because they were embarrassed about it, instead I was really proud of them because for me, I think I looked more fashionable (Yes, at 11 I thought like that) :p

My first glasses were those basic ones (mine were a metallic dark blue) and my mom choose them from me. I like them but I broke them in like two years ahaha So next time I choose the ones I wanted.
I was 13 years old when I bought my first Vogue glasses. Again, they were the basic ones but this time a metallic dark green. I wore those glasses until I was 19 years old and I had to switch them because I broke them and Vogue wasn't doing that style anymore. 

I was heart broken. I thought those glasses were going to be the ones I would wear forever... But they were out of style so I had to move on :p
When I went to the store to buy another glasses I told the sells lady I only wanted Vogue ones. They are my favorite brand of glasses and they last a lot of time!
I had ones in mind that I saw Giselle wearing them before on an Ad. I tried a bunch of them, but I didn't like anything! I mean, I wore basically the same glasses for 7 years EVERYDAY, it was not going to be easy...
But then I found the ones I really fell in love with. They were totally different from my old ones but they looked really fab ehehe

I loved the gold detailing, the simple black look... everything!
It's been two years now, and they are still here! They never broke or wear out and they weren't that expensive at all (: You have to keep in mind that I use them EVERYDAY! I use contacts too whenever I have to use sunglasses or it's raining outside, but the first thing I do when I get home is take off my contacts and wear my glasses!

For me, glasses are a cute fashion accessory if you choose the right ones for you! When picking glasses you have to try it on as much different style as you can and then pick out what looks best with your face shape, skin color and hair color.

I hate those kind of misconception that only geek girls or boys wear glasses. I was always a girly girl and I never mind wearing glasses, I think they look good on me and goes with everything!

So what do you think? Do you wear glasses? And if you do, do you wear them all the time? Let me know which style do you like best (:

I'll do a sunglasses post as well... Because I Loveeeee glasses :P

Another thing that I have to post about, tomorrow Brigitte Bradot will be 76 years old. As you all know she's my greatest inspiration in life.
She was a revolutionary women with gorgeous unique looks and bold style. She made me aware of how bad some animals are treated and made me a vegetarian and an activist towards animal rights (:

Happy Birthday BB <3

Favorite Lip Products: Lipsticks

Hi Ladies! One of my favorite make-up items are lip products! Lip glosses, lip balms and lipsticks are my favorite things to buy and try it on. I have a ridiculous collection of them, so I though I would collect my favorites and post about them. 
If I put everything in one post it would be too long, that's why I'm going to post about my favorite lip products in three parts: One for lipsticks, another for lip glosses and the last one for lip balms.

I'm going to start with Lipsticks. I love light pink lipsticks, I think they look best on me. A red lipstick can be too much to wear it everyday to college or work so a light lipstick would be perfect. I have five favorites right now so I'm going to go through each one with you.

Avon Beyond Color Lipstick- This lipstick doesn't have any color on it and it works as a plumping lip conditioner. It has a creamy texture but it doesn't go on the lips as smooth as other brands like MAC. I don't know if it plumps, I don't think so but it gives a nice shine to the lips. When you're feeling like go natural on the lips without using any lip balm you can go for this lipstick. It doesn't dry out your lips and lasts a pretty long time.

It is available at any Avon catalog (or the website) and on Amazon as well for 4.43$ only, so it's not at all expensive! 


Avon Beyond Color Lipstick in Party Pink- This is a light warm pink color which is very subtile for the lips. Again, wonderful for a more natural look or if you have bold eye make-up this color will complement them really well.  Even though is a light color, it's really easy to overdo it and you'll have strong nude pink lips, not good. I always find that with Avon lipsticks you have to be carefull while applying it. This lipstick has a matte finish.

M.A.C Angel Lipstick - If you are familiar with  MAC I think you know this color. I believe this soft pink shade of lipstick suits every skin tone, especially the cool tone skins. It has a frost finish so you can't overdo it like the Avon one, it's really smooth and looks gorgeous on the lips. It's long finish and not sticky at all, I love to wear it alone. This is the shade I'm going to use forever... I just know!

Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick in Wild Thing-  I never though I would use a bold lip color. I have fair skin so I always thought it would look awful on me. This shock pink lip color is gorgeous! It goes really smooth on the lips just link the MAC lipsticks, and it's not sticky. I have to put a light layer on my lips or I would look crazy!! But the sheer finish looked so good on me that this lipstick has become one of my favorites! This is a limited edition shade, so I don't think you'll find them on the stores, you can try ebay and Amazon at a really cheap price!

If you like pink shades of lipstick or if you're a lipstick junkie like me you should  try it! I found a seller at amazon who sells it for really cheap (:

Avon Color trend lipstick in Iced Champink-  I've used this color since I was a teen. I think this was the first lipstick I ever purchased, and I still love it!
It's not as pigmented as the other ones and it can be a little bit too much. But if you only put a layer of this on your lips, you'll end up with a pretty cool shade of pink!

I don't think Avon does this lipsticks anymore which is sad, but they have really cool dupes.

So this is my favorite lipsticks at the moment! I think in two months I'll have more because I'm always changing my mind! Next it would be lip glosses!!

Tell which are your favorite lipsticks! I always want to know good shades and lasting ones ((:

Review: Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse/ Dream Satin Liquid

Hi Ladies! I wanted to make this review for ages! This drugstore foundation as became one of my favorites make-up items ever! Better than all the high end foundations that I've tried so far!

It's the Maybelinne dream liquid mousse or Dream satin liquid (In the US and Europe the names are different but the formula is the same)!  I bought this randomly without doing any research on it because I needed a darker shade foundation for the summer and I picked this in the shade "Nude" which is 2 or 3 shades darker than my natural skin tone.

The consistency is not runny or thick it's in between, which I like. To apply it I have used my fingers, the Everyday Minerals flat top Kabuki and the Elf powder brush,  I liked all of them, especially the last one. 
It's very easy to blend even if it's not your natural skin tone and it does have an airbrush finish. It has a light to medium covegare that can be build up, but I don't recommend you to put a thick layer because this foundation does tranfer and it has a glowy finish. However if you put a light layer on your skin you'll have a beautiful glowy flawless skin. 

If you have normal to dry skin you'll love this foundation! I have combination oily skin and sometimes It gets a little oily in the end of the day but I blot my t-zone and it's good. If you have really oily skin then I don't think this would be the right choice for you, but it's so cheap that you can try it out yourself  (:

Review: Lush H'Suan Wen Hua Hair Treatment

Hi Ladies! It's been a while I know, but I'm back on track (:
I'm really excited about this product that's why I couldn't wait to make a review about it!

I've always loved Marylin as a hair treatment, I used pot after pot... But I wanted to try something new.
I few weeks a go a cut a lot of my hair, the ends were so damaged that I couldn't even look at my hair anymore! Because I have such fine and lifeless hair I wanted to give it a treat, so I gave this hair mask a go.

It has fresh ingredients like Eggs, Avocados, balsamic vinegar, cinnamon and bananas (this is just a few). I was afraid of the smell, because almost every single review said it has an awful scent, but I LOVED IT! For me, it smells like cinnamom cake! And the scent will last on your hair for ages...

The consistency is thick and creamy, which is good because when applying it it won't be runny and be all over the place.
I soak my hair up with this and left in on my hair for 40 minutes... I don't think you should leave it for a night like a lot of people do, because the results will be the same.. if it was supposed to leave it for 10 hours it would be on the instructions... That's my opinion.
So after the 40 minutes I rinsed it out, shampoo and condition my hair as always, I didn't apply anymore products because I really wanted to know the final result. I let my hair hair dry and after a couple of hours I was amazed!!!

My damaged, lifeless, fine hair was shiny, soft and the blonde was so much brighter!  I dind't expecte these results at all! I have fine and oily hair that is so much damaged with all the heat I use and color... And now It really changed!

For 7.60£ a pot, I recommend this to everyone with dry and damaged hair, it will save your life! Everyone noticed the change on my hair because it looked so much fuller and healthier... Give it a try I don't think you'll regret it.

I bought mine from the Lush uk site, if you want to know more about this wonderful hair mask clickon the image bellow, it has more reviews and information about the product!
