I’ve got this Yves Rocher nail polish as a present from the lovely Magi from Magimania. It’s a mini size which is 3 ml, which is absolutely cute.
I think it’s a fantastic idea to produce mini nail polishes (or is it a sample?) because this way you can get a lot of nail polishes from the brand you like without being broke. And did I mention that it is totally cute?
I’ve never finished a bottle of a nail polish but this one looks like the one that I can actually finish plus it it is very travel friendly.
Ok, you’ve got that I really like this idea. But what about this nail polish in particular? Wanna see how it looks like on the nails?Read More

Liquid Eye Liner in Gold
Lip Glace in
- Ruby Glaze (stunning red)
It is amazing to get unexpected beauty (and not only) presents, right? I was surprised to get the Smashbox palette from their holiday collection with this Dior palette and one more set from MAC’s Tarten Tale as a present for Christmas.
The first thing that I really like about this palette is the golden design, it looks great for holidays. Now this is not the most luxurious design but it looks nice anyway.
This is how the palette looks like inside. You get 12 eye shadows, 4 eye liners, Photo Finish Lid Primer, Mini Lash DNA Mascara and Smashbox’s step-by-step “Get-the-Look” cards.
I am sorry that several shades are used. I should have taken the photo before but I didn’t have a camera with me and I really wanted to try this palette.
I really love those “Get-the-look” cards, they are so useful to those who are not very experienced when it comes to makeup. They are also great when you have a lack of ideas and need to put on your makeup as fast as possible or want to try something new. There are 10 looks with a very easy to follow instructions. I’ve tried to create 2 looks so far (but want to try them all) and I was quite happy with the results.
And here are the swatches of the eye shadows and liners. And I really like the idea thatRead More
In the New Year I plan to pay more attention to some Asian brands because it seems that I always miss so many great products. So why not starting with shu uemura? It’s a shame that I have so very few products from the brand but I would love to change that!
Take a look at their stunning Spring 2011 collection called Morphorium. I L-O-V-E the combination of the colours the model is wearing on her eyes, isn’t is gorgeous?
Kakuyasu Uchiide, shu uemura’s Creative Director was inspired by the Blue Morpho butterflies and tropical forest when he was creating this collection.
