I was wearing Shellac for 20 days and I removed it only because my nails were growing, everything else looked perfect. And yesterday I’ve applied a new nail polish – Essence What Do U Think (#22) which is perfect for spring in my opinion.
I really like this pastel coral but it is kind of strange to see that my nails have a different colour after such a long time of being red.
The application is a bit streaky but looks nice with 2 coats as you can see from the photo above.
Although I already wrote about this lipstick I though I’d give you a more detailed information. I absolutely love the promo image and video, the campaign, all the ideas and the lipstick itself (review coming soon).
Here is what is written about the lipstick:
“This trend-setting collection offers a variety of options for the woman who is not afraid to experiment. The ultra-hydrating formula creates a veil of luminous shine and vibrant color in a single sweep. The key ingredient, Mirror Jelly, brings shine, volume and hydration to the lips. This unique ingredient is made up of two components: polymers that provide a long-lasting, second-skin effect with exceptional hydrating and softening properties and silicone oil, which creates a light, smooth texture. In addition, a significantly lower level of wax, 25% less than a standard lipstick, creates a light-reflecting, voluminous effect.”
As you may know, all lipsticks are divided into 3 groups and although I can see myself in a Rock Style definitely, I love the shades from the Doll Style.
Subtly ethereal. Divine sensual. Pearls mixed with leather and soft metal. Nude tones and shades of pink look amazing with a hint of light on the lips.
The shades: #249 Diorissime(sheer soft coral), #253 Basic (pink nude), #260 Rose Deshabille(sheer shimmering pink), #322 Beige Perfection(nude), #333 Nude(nude beige), #343 Miss Dior(nude pink), #465 Singuliere(sheer bubblegum pink), #525 Vintage(brown), #535 Tailleur Bar(nude), #554 It Pink(sheer strawberry pink), #561 Baby Rose (baby pink), #564 Model(sheer warm pink), #583 Backstage(sheer plum), #612 Spotlight(sheer plum brown) .

I’ve heard a lot about SUQQU brushes and how incredible they are, so I though that I would love to get those for myself. Until I saw the prices. I can see myself getting the eye brushes, although they are pricey, I can justify spending around £50 on a brush but as for the face brushes…
SUQQU Cheek Brush is £85.00 “Award winning luxurious brush for natural finishing application of colour to your cheeks.” And SUQQU Face Brush is… £168.00 (!!!) “Award winning luxurious brush with an abundance of soft hair that delivers powder gently and evenly”
Yes, I still want to buy them and I am sure that they are amazing but unfortunately right now I can’t afford spending that much on a brush. I think I could get the Cheek Brush after all but the Face one?! Not now at least, which is a shame, as I would really love to own these.
This is exactly the kind of colours and products which are perfect for summer: bright lip glosses, cream eye shadows (I believe they are long lasting), beautiful bronzing powder and the eye shadow palette with blue and earthy tones. Plus add the most luxurious packaging and patterns and there you have it – Terra Inca collection. Each item looks like a must have, at least because it is too beautiful not to have it.
This is the kind of makeup that I like for myself – maybe you don’t necessary (is it possible?!) need it but you simply can’t resit.
Olivier Echaudemaison (read my interview with him here) was inspired by the Incas obviously so this is why we have so many earthy and blue tones and the patterns remind of the Incas culture.
- Terra Inca Sublime Radiant Powder
- Terre Indigo Four Shade Eye Shadows
- Terracotta Gloss 07 Salsa (bright pink), 08 Mambo (orange/coral), 09 Tango (red).
