It is hard to find a nail polish junkie, who doesn't like holographic nail polishes. This holosexual obsessions started to grow stronger together with the popularity of Simply Nailogical Youtube channel. I was never a fan of holographic nail polishes, but when I saw this beautiful spicy nail polish called 'Papakōlea Breeze'*at Born Pretty Store, I fell in love and decided to give it a try.

I want to start off with a little explanation, because I didn't know what Papakōlea means. Papakōlea is a very famous and unique green sand beach located on island of Hawaii. The sand there looks like a fine mixture between little emerald crumbs and spicy black pepper. So, Papakōlea Breeze is a gentle afternoon wind from a green sand beach. Sounds wonderful, isn't it? 

Holo Series come in a regular Born Pretty nail polish bottle with a medium-sized brush-applicator. Application of the nail polish wasn't the best, it goes on smoothly on the nail plate, but once you try to build-up the color, bush moves the first coat. I recommend you to apply a thin layer of Papakōlea Breeze and let it completely dry, before the second application. Fortunately, it dries very quickly! For an extra opaque coverage I like to apply two thin coats of holo nail polish and finish my manicure with a layer of top coat. 

To my surprise, after I covered Papakōlea Breeze with a transparent top coat, all holographic rainbows disappeared. Usually, transparent top coat is used to reveal the shiny power of rainbows, but not in this case. I honestly don't know where was the problem: in my favorite top coat Big Universo Brilho Cristal (review) or in this incredibly beautiful holographic nail polish. If you know the answer, please let me know in the comments, because I really want to understand where was the issue. But the saddest part is the durability of this nail polish. It started to chip on the second day of wearing, I wonder how long it lasts without a top coat.

Overall, I was a little bit disappointing with the formula of Holo Series nail polish by Born Pretty. The color and that beautiful rainbow shine are undoubtedly magnificent. But the overall application and durability of this nail polish isn't the best. Born Pretty has better nail polish collections, like the Pumpkin Series (review), which are very durable and last on my nails more than a week. I think, Born Pretty needs to develop a special top coat and retail it together with Holo Series nail polishes, to make them last longer and shine brighter.

Miss Rose Photo Finish Foundation Primer | Review & Before After Pictures

| on
Tuesday, May 22, 2018

Everyone wants to have a smooth, soft and perfect-looking skin. No matter how good is your foundation, the secret to a flawless makeup lies in a primer. As I have mentioned on my blog, blackheads and enlarged pores are my biggest skin problems, that's why finding a good makeup primer was always an important quest to me. So, without further ado, today we are going to talk about Miss Rose Photo Finish Foundation Primer*, which was kindly sent to me by Beauty Big Bang and find out how it works.

Miss Rose foundation primer comes in a very simple and well-knows plastic tube packaging and you are going to receive 30 ml/1,01 oz of product. The packaging of this primer is very similar to the packaging of the original Smashbox photo finish primer. You will also find an an incomplete list of ingredients and 'how to' instructions on the packaging, both in English language.

The primer is silicone-based and has a very silky, gel like consistency. It is absolutely colorless and odorless, so it won't camouflage imperfections. The silky formula glides onto skin 'blurring' enlarged pores, fine lines and even small scars. Due to silicone, it feels very silky and lightweight on the skin. Primer takes less than a minute to absorb into the skin, leaving the surface of the skin soft and matte.

My skin tends to get dry and irritated, when the weather outside is cold or windy. That's why I was worrying, that Miss Rose primer will emphasize dry and an 'patchy' appearance of my skin. Fortunately, my skin feels very comfortable and moisturized throughout the whole day. Thanks to this primer, the whole makeup lasts longer and looks much better.

Overall, I think Miss Rose primer is an incredible product, it has a nice blurring effect with a mattifying finish. This primer perfectly hides my large pores and helps the foundation to last all day long. Though, I'm not quite sure, how it would work on oily skin. Miss Rose primer has few ingredients, which might cause acne prone to increase breakouts. Because of its high covering abilities, these ingredient lock oils inside of the skin and this may cause breakouts. Thank you so much for the visit, I hope this review was somehow helpful to you. Don't forget to use a special discount code LIZE10 to receive a 10 % your purchase, while shopping at Beauty Big Bang. I'll talk to you very soon!

Hair extensions are amazing! You can add volume and length to your natural hair, using only few clip-on extensions. Want to experiment with different hair styles and color, but don't want to damage your natural hair? Feel free to do all kind of hair experiments with human hair extensions. But, just like any natural hair, hair extensions demand a special care. Here a few tips, that will help you to take a proper care of your extensions and ensure their good appearance.

Quality Comes First

When choosing hair extension or wig, you should check whether it is made from natural human hair or synthetic. Human hair extensions come in variety of textures and colors, but most important is the quality and condition of these hairs. A good quality natural hair extensions should come in it's natural stateshould not be chemically processed or damaged. TedHair, a premier hair trading and manufacturer, has a huge range of high-quality virgin human hair and it comes in variety of textures, colors and lengths. You will find premium hair extensions and other products:

Wholesale wigs -  human hair wigs provide the most natural look and feel. Usually wigs are used either for prosthetic, cosmetic, or convenience reasons. Wigs are versatile, easy to style and color. A good quality human hair wig with a proper care will last a very long time, though it isn't a cheap pleasure.

Wholesale Closures - a closure is a special hair piece made of soft breathable material: lace or silk. Closure is usually used with a natural hair weave and allows you to attach the weave around the perimeter of your head. Weave helps to protect your own hair, solving the hair-loss problem and improving the look.

Wholesale brazilian hair - Brazilian virgin hair is one of the most popular and the best natural hair on the hair extension market. Brazilian virgin hair comes in a variety of different textures: straight, wavy and curly. This hair is naturally thick and durable, yet it feels very soft and silky on touch.


How to take care of your natural hair extensions?

If you want to treat your hair extensions, make sure to consult a hair specialist first. Professional will explain you the risk of hair damage and recommend you the best color treatments to use on your extensions. Love to heat styling your extensions? Ask your hair specialist what heat protecting product to use on hair extensions and what temperature is the best for them.

Wash your hair extensions once per month with a soft, paraben free shampoo. Gently massage hair and rinse it under the warm water. Moisturize hair extensions with conditioner and leave it in for 5 to 10 minutes. Don't leave conditioner for too long on your extensions or they will become greasy and heavy. Rinse your hair and dry with a soft towel. Place hair extensions in a well-ventilated area and let them dry.

Make sure, that your hair extensions or wig is dry, before combing it. Combing wet hair can be very damaging for hair. Use a wide-toothed comb and start combing hair from tips, slowly moving towards the roots.

Hi lovelies, how are you doing today? Have you read my City Color Cosmetics Haul blog post? I  mentioned, that I want to write a proper review for each makeup product from the haul. That's why today we are going to start our City Color Cosmetics review journey. And the fist product I want to talk about is going to be City Color Be Matte Lipstick in gorgeous shade called  'Claudia'. I believe City Color named this shade after the vampire child Claudia - a fictional character in Anne Rice's The Vampire Chronicles.

'Claudia' is very beautiful cinnamon chocolate shade of dark brown. This grungy color somehow reminds me of 90's, when matte brown lipstick was a major makeup trend. At first I was afraid, that this color will make my skin appear yellow or orange, because I already have some ginger freckles and pigmentation on my face. But, thankfully, this shade of brown looks very natural on the skin and brightens up my skin. On my opinion, this color will look flattering on every complexion!

Formula of City Color Matte Lipstick is rich with dark brown pigment, that doesn't 'bleed' of the lips and doesn't stain them. The color pay off is very deep and intense, it applies pretty easy on the lips, thought it is hard to blend. I love the incredibly beautiful finish, it is absolutely matte with a slightly velvety texture. Another thing I appreciate about the formula is a long-lasting and nonfading color, that can stay on my lips for a good five or six color. Have I mentioned about the amazing scent of Be Matte lipstick? It smells like a truffle chocolate: sweet, yummy and very delicate.

The biggest downside of most matte lipstick is their drying formula, that feels super heavy on the lips. Be Matte lipstick feels really comfortable and lightweight on the lips. I still recommend to prepare your lips before the application - exfoliate and moisturize them with a lip balm. But, if you don't suffer from chapped lips, you can skip lip balm. Dark lip look demands perfect lip contouring, so using a sharpened lip pencil of the same shade is required. For an extra neat lines, clean the edges of the lips with concealer or foundation.

I'm absolutely in love with this lipstick! It has everything we search in a good matte lipstick - excellent pigmentation, long-lasting formula and very affordable price. I totally recommend 'Claudia' to everyone, who loves rocking dark lip makeup and tired of red lipsticks. Chocolate brown lip color is a trendy alternative to classic red lips. 

Lots of love,
Liz
