AUGUST FAVOURITE: Inglot Rich Care Lipstick in 03

Hi everyone! How was your weekend? My weekend wasn't too interesting... job hunting and all that jazz. Anyways, today I'm coming to you with this month's favourite - Inglot Rich Care Lipstick. I got this lipbalm for my birthday from one of my best friends. I was quite curious about this product as I never had a high end lip balm. Lip balms are one of the things that I would rarely spend too much money on as it's used on a regular basis.

REVIEW: Hawaiian Tropic Lip Gloss in Island Berry

Hello everyone! How was your week? My weekend was quite boring but you know... boring isn't always bad. I haven't done a review in ages because I didn't feel like any product was worth a review until recently. In my July GlossyBox I received the Hawaiian Tropic Lip Gloss in the shade Island Berry.

I only started to use this lip gloss recently because I wasn't super drawn to it. At first, I thought that it's just a nice lip gloss with a delicious smell but it's nothing special. Oh was I wrong!

NEW PURCHASE: Simple Hydrating Light Moisturiser

Hello my loves! How are you all doing today? It has not been my weekend... but everything worked out in the end. Oh you guys, it's the last week of my internship. And I still haven't found a part-time job. Hopefully, I'll get one soon! Today, I'm coming to you with my most recent purchase. This is not a first impressions post, because it's a skin care item but I actually bought it yesterday and wanted to share it with you. I'm speaking of the Simple Hydrating Light Moisturiser.

FIRST IMPRESSIONS: Benefit "Do the Hoola" Kit

Hello ladies! How are you all doing? I got a nasty cold yesterday and had to stay home but I'm feeling a little better now and actually made it to work today. Apparently, there is some kind of virus floating around and we got it. Yup, both myself and my boyfriend Marcin, but we managed and we're feeling okay-ish. Anyhow, today I'm coming to you with yet another first impressions post. You have to bear with me, as there will be a lot of these. I'm buying a lot more stuff that I haven't used before and I would like to share this experience with you and hopefully help you in some way.

EMPTIES: August 2016

Hello ladies! How's it going? I only have two weeks left of my internship and I'm heartbroken. I have to go back to college for another year, look for a part time job and be broke again. But you know what, it will get better because, after that year, I will be a fully qualified college graduate with good experience and I will finally be able to work full time. Anyways, today's post is about my August Empties. I used more skincare products rather than makeup but that's normal with me. Let's get started. I have to put a disclaimer here, I just got a camera and I'm still working with the lighting and the flash. Some pictures are overexposed, unfortunately, but I will try and make it work for the next post so please forgive me for that.

Hair Care & Body Care

I used up my Cien Repair & Care Conditioner. I mentioned this product a lot on my blog but this line is one of the best hair care lines available. It always will be a HIT for me.

UNBOXING: GlossyBox August 2016

Hello everyone! How was your week? I'm back to work after almost a week off. It's good to be back. Not for long, though... I'm finishing my internship in two weeks and I'm back to college. I really don't want to go back but it has to be done. Anyways, today I'm coming to you with my August GlossyBox Unboxing. This month is a collector's edition and to be honest, I'm not a fan of these. I think that the special edition boxes are not of the best value and I just prefer the regular boxes.

1. RAE FEATHER Mini Monogram Pouchette - €22.60

So the first thing in my box is a designer makeup bag. I personally am not into makeup bags because I don't travel that much, but that's just me. It is a pretty bag and I will be using it when I travel but it just doesn't happen that often.

DUPES: Benefit 'Gimme Brow' vs Essence' Make Me Brow'

Hello you guys! How is your day? I'm relaxing at home after a trip to Dublin and watching some Instagram stories. Today, I'm coming to you with a dupes post. Yes, I found a pretty good dupe recently and I wanted to share it with you. By the way, I'm thinking of recording some makeup Youtube videos soon. What do you guys think? Is it a good idea? Let me know in the comments! For now, let's get on with the DUPES!

Brows are all the craze right now. Hairy, full, feathery or natural - we all have our own style. I, personally, have two haha. Number one is for every day wear and this is the one I'm going to show you today.

HOW I: Powder Contouring & Highlighting

Hi guys. How was your week? It was definitely a very tiring week... waking up at unbearable hours can get the best of a human. Anyways, I have a full week off work ahead of me so I can't wait to get my energy back! Today, I'm coming to you with a new series on the blog: the "HOW I" series. In this post, I would like to show you how I powder contour and highlight. Without further delay, let's get started!

After I apply my base and concealer and set it with a translucent powder, I go ahead and start my contouring.

BEAUTY HAUL: Cien Beauty

Hello everyone! How was your bank holiday weekend? I relaxed and caught up on sleep finally ;) Today, I'm coming to you with yet another haul. This time however, it's more of a skin care haul and all products are from the Cien Beauty line from Lidl. We all love a deal, right... and I think Lidl's Cien Beauty line is full of hidden gems. Let's get started!

Hair Care:

As you will find out from my August Empties, I have used up my Cien Repair & Care Conditioner. I think that it's one of the best conditioners out there on the market, but I decided to branch out a little.
Since Lidl came out with a new beauty range, it was the perfect timing.
