Stila smudge pots:A review:D i haven't written anything in a while because i've just started school two weeks ago and i've been in a continuous rush since then and i literally could not find time to write.i'm so sorry i have abandoned my eight followers :)) i promise i'll be better in the future.

well then on with the review :)

I have recently purchased three of stila 's smudge pots ( black ,bronze,gray).Where I live i can only get Stila at Sephora and the prices there are twice as big as on the site and i can't purchase online as i do not have a card :.So i saw they were having a sort of discount so i rushed in there and got myself these three.They all came in a package together so i paid the price for three little ones ( cause they are quite little ,like half the size of the original jar )wich would equivalate the price of a full sized smudge pot.

I have never had liners in this form ( gel liner) so i didn't know if i was gonna like it so i thought i would try these from stila cause benefit creaseless blah blah blah was way too expensive and i can't get my hands on mac :('

I'm so glad i decided to buy them cause'i completely adore them :X

Although I did use them as liners in the first couple of days i now find myself reaching out for them as a base for smokey eyes ;) they're great i tell you.

What more can I say ,love,absolutely love !
They keep my eyeshadow in place ,no creasing and it makes the colours i put on top pop more.

All in all i'm very happy with my purchase :D

Hope you're having a great week,

p.s. here's a picture of a look i did the other day with the bronze and the black.

p.s.2 :))my next smudge pot is going to be pomegranate.Soooo pretty :X

Today's look : Line those eyes!

I thought i'd do a very neutral look today.So i put on my foundation blush blah blah and my eye makeup which consisted of a very light cream coloured highlighter and a sparkly brown eyeshadow in the crease.I should've stopped there.But i didn't :D ...i thought a little liner couldn't hurt ( bad idea ) so i ended up with a big black line on my eyes ....which i absolutely adoooore:)).oh and i also added a bright orangey-pinky lipgloss just to completely erase the idea of a neutral look :)

Here are the pictures:

Products used :

Face :

Revlon Colorstay ( 150 Buff).Stila pressed powder.Manhattan Blush in Fresh Peach.


Cream coloured highlighter.Brown in the crease.Maybelline line definer liquid liner.


Oriflame's Pop Glam Plump & Gloss in Vibrant pink

Ok....after that i kind of got a little bit creative and this came out:D

I am not even going to try to tell you what products i used mostly because i have no idea of what i did there .i just started extending the liner and this just popped on my face 5 minutes later.although i sort of like it.what do you think ?:D i would be more than happy to know what your thoughts are on this.

Have a great week guys !



P.S. I'm starting school tomorrow.....i'm a 10th grader ( i think it's called a sophomore in America ) and i'm totally not happy about that.Don't get me wrong... i looooove school( well at least the fun part of it ...) but i still think i'll miss all the lazy mornings in bed ....just me ....doing nothing ( doesn't that sound great ?) well i hope i'll get adjusted rather quickly and everything's gonna be just fine.By the way ...are any of you still in highschool or am i the only kiddie around here ?:(

My new obsession!

Which is actually......not makeup related at all :( sorry but I just wanted to share this with the world.

And what I'm talking about is..........Placebo 's album Battle For the Sun .

And yes I know this is nothing new , but I went to their concert here in Bucharest on the 21 of June and I promised myself I would buy the album so that I would have all of the songs neatly organised on a CD......yeah... so promises to myself never end well and I forgot.

So today I was just looking for a gift for one of my friends and I stumbled upon it there and I knew I had to have it.I gotta tell you has been on repeat for about 3 hours ( yep ...that's how much of a weirdo i am :D ) I especially love Kitty Litter and Speak in Tongues.

So this was my random rant about music and just for your little makeup lover hearts here's a teeny tiny haul:D ( just photos no reviews just yet....i still need a little bit of time to decide if I like'em )

1.Manhattan Cosmetics( which ironically are a German beauty brand:D) Brilliant Fusion Compact powder& rouge

2.Seventeen Natural Sheer in 333

3.Manhattan Cosmetics X-treme last &shine in 7

4.Urban Decay in Goddess (very glittery and i'm not sure i like that :(....we'll see)

Ok...that was all for today guys.Have a nice week !

When in a review:D

So...inspiration came pretty quickly :) i was just on my laptop trying to decide what my real first post should be about and then it hit me ..what am I most obsessed with?The answer :foundation !

So I just grabbed my Revlon Colorstay and I was about to start writing when I realised that I don't really have anything new to add to the reviews circulating on the web.
People don't want me telling them something they already know.

On to the actual review cause'if I don't stop rambling now I shall never end:

The spotlight tonight is on BOURJOIS'10 hour sleep effect foundation(in rose72).

My initial thought was ''oh there's got to be a proper review on it on youtube.''you see youtube is for me what santa is for little kids : you just tell him what you want and he gets it for you:)) anyway i searched and there was i decided to do one of my own.

Here it goes !

First impression :yuuuuuck:( why on earth did I ever buy this?My reason ? I was used to a matte finish from my foundations so i first hated this product that actually turned out to be pretty good .

Finish:It has a gorgeous dewy finish and it just makes your skin glow in all the right places like the top of your cheekbone , on your brow bone etc.But when you put powder over it all the magic is gone so what I would reccommend is to powder only your T-zone if you want to keep the sheen:)

Coverage : i would say it's more of a light to medium but it's definitely buildable.

Staying-power:unfortunately not so good .this is really the only downside to this :( it literally lasts about 3-4 hours on the skin and after that you can't really tell you had foundation scoring low points for this one.

I also wanna' say that this is the easiest foundation to blend ever and i think that's what makes the coverage so buildable.

All in all I think this is a great foundation.definitely would repurchase . i would give it a 9 out of 10 just because of the staying-power but you know what they say:you can't have it all now can you!

Hope you didn't find this post excruciatingly long and really hope this helped someone out there:)



First blog entry:D yeey I now officially have a (makeup )blog!( happy as can be about that:)I have been wanting a blog for about 2 weeks now and i haven't gotten around to doing it because of my busy schedule( yeah right :)) neah ....the truth is i've been reaaaaaly lazy.

The only real problem is that I haven't got the slightest idea of what to do with it.

Well hopefully inspiration will come soon and all you makeup addicts out there will be able to know my humble opinion about stuff and see what i have recently been up to:D


P.S. I have always wanted to do the whole xoxo and the initial thing;;) i just think it's sooo Gossip Girl-ish :D meaning it's also very fun and stupid in a certain way.But hey ...i'm still going to do it :)
