Mini haul: Mac, Essence, Yankee Candle, Avon

Hello everyone! 

I kinda miss writing here, so I thought I could show you a mini haul of things I bought/tried lately and let you know what I think! :)

First thing is a moisturizer from the solutions line by Avon. As you may or may not know, I have quite dry skin, especially on top of my nose and the centre of my forehead (in winter I have those awful patches that I absolutely hate!) so I am always up to trying new moisturizers and lately I've bumped into this one! Hydra Beyond.. and the name sounded like just what I wanted.
It's not properly a cream but it's a gel creme, it feels very light and soft and "watery". When you apply it, it really feels like your skin is drinking water or something and the great thing is that it dries up in a bit leaving your skin so soft, so fresh and so hydrated! I'm usually the laziest when it comes to apply serums or creams cause I usually don't like that "oily" sensation when you apply them BUT this one actually makes me want to use it more often, and this is a great thing for me.
It's was like £7 on offer and I'm so happy about it! 

Second one is a thing I had for months in my make up drawer but I've been loving recently. They're shimmer pearls or highlighter but they are so so lovely cause the finish is pearlescent and not glittery.

I've been using the Nars powder highlighter and the one from the balm but they all have glitter in it, some are pure glitter which is great for a night out but a bit too much for a everyday make up. These, instead, are wonderful and they just give the perfect touch of light you need for highlighting without ending up looking like Edward Cullen on a sunny day. lolz.
Also, Essence products are so cheap and some of them are really amazing. 

Random thing is this candle. Well, if you read my blog, then you know I have an addiction to those candles. 
And Yankee Candle just came out with new fragrances and this one is O-M-G. 
I can't even describe how it smells like, but it's so gentle, so fresh and I don't know, I just adore it!

Tadaaan, as you may have seen from the title, I also went to MAC and of course bought a lipstick!
I just needed a nude/everyday shade/I wana put it on everyday all the time with every make up shade and I ended up choosing this, which is Peach Blossom. I just love it. It's a cremesheen, lovely pinky/peachy/nude shade that suits my skin tone and goes well with almost every make up and lasts few hours; It's not longlasting as a retro matte one but you won't have problem reapplying it cause it smells amazing and feels so soft on lips that you will find yourself use it again and again almost as it was a lipbalm. LOVE. 

This is totally random, but if you follow me on instagram (come and say hi if you want! queen_of_nonsense) you will know I was quite excited when I got these in my mail. I ordered these from ebay on the end of December and I was about to consider them lost in the awful world of postal parcels but they actually arrived and I'm so happy. Of course they're for my dog and even if she hates them, I will try a way to let her use them at least when it rains outside or it's freezing out; they're so cute and they're lined so they also are warm. If someone of you is interested in buying them, leave a comment here or send me a message and I will link you the actual seller. 
They're so chap and the quality is really good! So yeah, my dog has boots now! haha

Sorry if this is a random post but I really wanted to sit here and write!
Hope you're having a nice day!
 (I'm a bit ill but at least I can sit here writing and watching tv series! hehe) 
Let me know in the comments if you have ever tried one of these things or if you have an addiction to YC too so I can feel less weird and I will see you on the next post!

Too Faced: Is this mascara really Better Than Sex?

Hello Everyone! 

So I finally decided to buy this mascara as I've been thinking about buying it for months but I wanted to finish all my mascaras first.
The price is 23.5 eur/ 23 $/ 19£ for 8ml of product and a package that I think you will LOOVE as I do (I think I'm gonna keep it forever). 

This is what it claims to be:

  • Film-forming Polymer for smudge-proof, all day wear
  • Acacia Senegal Tree Extract to nourish, thicken and lock curl in place
  • Unique Peptides for the deepest, intense black possible
  • 1,944% more volume*
  • 100% saw longer lashes**
  • 100% saw dramatic volume**
  • 93% saw base-to-tip curl**
  • 8 out of 10 say it’s the best mascara they’ve ever used**
  • 3.4 out of 10 say great lashes are better than sex**
  • 3.1 out of 10 agree that this mascara is so good, it’s better than sex**
  • Vegan Friendly

I've been using it and loved it since the first application! In just one coat you can really see the difference. It gives so much volume and lenght is great too. The colour is an amazing carbon black and your lashes really feels multidimentional after more than one coat! It's amazing and I think it worths all the money from the packaging to the formula and the mascara itself. 
Only con? It's not waterproof, even if it stays on all day long without falling down. So I think if they will make it waterproof for those people who tends to have watery eyes, it would be probably one of the most amazing mascaras in the make up world.
Highly highly recommend. Not sure about the name buuut I think it is now better than other mascaras I've tried; cause to have this effect on my lashes I would have used at least two mascaras. 
Pratical, amazing and beautiful.

Have you ever tried it or any of Too Faced mascaras? How did they work on you? What are your fav mascaras? Please tell me in the comments so I can check them out!

Hope you will have a nice Saturday and I will see you on the next post.
