theBalm Meet Matt(e) Trimony Matte Eyeshadow Palette Review and Swatches

In my April beauty favourites I promised to swatch theBalm’s Meet Matt(e) Trimony Matte Eyeshadow Palette. I actually really like theBalm eye shadows (nude Tude and Shady Lady Palette Vol.2 , and this one was not an exception.

My friend was actually clearing out her collection, and passed this onto me.  While not all shades look good on my complexion, some of them I adore, and use a lot. My personal favourites are: Matt Rossi (cool toned taupe) and Matt Kumar (warm-toned reddish brown).

As it is always with theBalm eye shadows they are very smooth and soft, their mattes are some of the best on the market, they are not at all chalky or dusty, you can see how pigmented they are, too, on the swatches below. Gorgeous, right?

One more thing which I really like is a huge mirror which is brilliant for

Tromborg Aroma Therapy Body Oil Lavender Rose Tree Review

I have posted about my gorgeous Tromborg Aroma Therapy Body Oil Lavender Rose Tree over at my Instagram a while ago, and it is about time I share about it. It was a very thoughtful present from someone very special,  as that person knows how much I love rose and lavender. It an incredible and thoughtful gift, that person told me that everything about that product screams my name, an I have to agree.

The oil comes in a luxurious heavy glass bottle which I really like. I just have to be very careful not to drop it on the floor. 

And the scent is just to die for, it is like my dream scent, roses with lavender, it definitely helps to relax and unwind in the evenings. While there are several ways you can use the oil, my personal favourite is

New Beauty Purchases

It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted about the new purchases (not all of them have arrived yet), so here we go.  Most of them were actually for hair. And if you follow me on Instagram, you have already seen these photos.

Hair Care

I have been dealing with sensitive scalp issues, and also my hair started looking greasy really fast, and that is something I really hate. I’ve also visited my hairdresser recently, so have been trying to figure out the best products for my new cut.

Eucerin Dermo Capillaire Shampoo (from Feel Unique) and Euphytos Peeling Scrub  (Amazon UK) should help with the scalp issues and with a product build up. While I’ve bought the Eucerin shampoo after reading a lot of great reviews (and I do love it), I’ve never heard of Euphytos brand before but decided to try it.
