What is your favorite kind of wine? Everyone around me was always obsessed with white dry wine, but I have never shared the same feelings to this drink. As a sweet-tooth, I enjoy the sugary strength of dark, viscid red wine, usually used in the Divine Liturgy. I`m also a big fan of dark, burgundy lipstick and can wear it throughout the whole year, not minding the season behind the window. 'Chocolate Merlot'* is one of those lip colors, which I love the same way as the old-fashioned altar wine.

You may have heard about 'Chocolate Merlot' lipstick from my City Color Huge Makeup Haul. It comes in a classic liquid lipstick packaging with a soft sponge-tipped applicator. As a part of 'Creamy Lips' series it has a velvety texture and caring formula, that keeps your lips natural moisture well-preserved. My 'Chocolate Merlot' is a well-pigmented dark burgundy shade with a neutral undertone and semi matte finish. This haunting shade is perfect for those gloomy days, when you feel obsolete, but still want to look alluring.

The opacity of the lipstick is more sheer, than expected. I was hoping for a full coverage in one single layer, but it takes few swipes and a little bit of effort to build up a desirable bold and opaque lip look.  The lipstick applies easily on the lips, doesn't accentuate dry patches or fine lines. It doesn't feel heavy on the lips and, luckily, doesn't bleed out, however I still recommend you to use a lip pencil before applying the color on your lips. If you aren't a big lover of refined lip look, lightly dab the color onto your lips and you will get beautifully stained lip effect.

Well, I have never tried an actual chocolate merlot, but if its taste is just as delicious as the color, I'm definitely going to love this wine. It is safe to say that 'Chocolate Merlot' is an incredible long-lasting lip color. It feels comfortable and lightweight on the lips, has a divine scent of liquid chocolate and a sleek silky finish. I admit, that it is hard to achieve a perfect lip outline, but not everyone wears lipstick in this way. At the moment, Creamy Lips lipstick is available in 11 gorgeous shades: from summer approved tickled pink to everyday friendly nude lavender.

Lots of love,

City Color Classic Face Primer | Review & Demo

Hello lovelies, how are you feeling today? I hope you all remember my City Color Makeup Haul blog post, because today I've prepared a detailed review on City Color Classic Face Primerwith swatches and my personal experience. And, of course, I dedicate this post to everyone, who struggle with large pores, blackheads, fine lines and acne scars. 

City Color Classic Face Primer comes in a hot pink squeezable tube and for the price, you are going to receive 0.9 oz / 27 ml of product. A little of this wonderful primer goes a long way, so the tube will last you a long time. I really like, that Classic Primer is paraben-free, so you can use it as often as you like, without any risks for your gentle skin.

Comparing enlarged face pores with orange skin is rather romantic, but I think that my pores are more similar to craters on moon's surface, therefore, I like to use primer in my day-to-day makeup routine. One of the most important criteria for makeup primer is a breathable formula, that won't feel oily and heavy on the skin.

Classic Face Primer is water-based and that is why it feels so lightweight on the skin. The smooth texture reminds me of soft, creamy butter, that fills-in every single pore on the face. The nude-tone primer easily blends into the skin, slightly moisturizing and preparing it's surface for foundation. Once you apply Classic Primer on, the skin feels very smooth and you can definitely tell a huge difference in the appearance of pores and fine lines.

Overall, I really like Classic Primer by City Color Cosmetics. It isn't heavy or slippery, like other makeup primers and has a matte, but natural finish on the skin. I love how my skin looks and feels with this primer, and how long my foundation lasts on the skin. I have to admit, that you can even wear this primer on it's own, without foundation, especially if you are having a good skin day!

And what is your favorite makeup primer at the moment?

Lots of love,
Liz

While shopping for the perfect bikini can be stressful because finding the combination of “fits me well, won’t cost an arm and a leg, and wouldn’t give my father a heart-attack” is tough to find, beauty products are different. There’s nothing more relaxing than grabbing a cute new shade of lipstick or a delectably nourishing body lotion, and when we think of retail therapy, skincare and makeup is what stands out as truly relaxing.

The spring is officially here, so it is time to glow ans sparkle. Today I'm going to review a liquid highlighter by O.Two.O brand. I have never heard of this brand before, but the gorgeous packaging and beautiful swatches caught my eyes, so I decided to try it out. O.Two.O Liquid Highlighter* was nicely sent to me by ToSave beauty and fashion supplier for review purposes and without further ado let's take a look at this product.

O.Two.O Liquid Highlighter comes in a very common, but so comfy and convenient glass bottle with a dropper. You can 'drop' a desirable amount of the liquid highlighter on the back part of your hand and apply it on the face with a brush. This packages are one of the most hygienic, because you don't have a direct contact with the product and don't add any unwanted bacteria inside.

And now it is time to take a closer look at the formula, texture and durability of O.Two.O Liquid Highlighter. I have a shade #1 Halo - it is a very beautiful shimmering highlighter with a huge amount of glitter and what is very important - it is holographic. You can really see those rainbows,  especially with muted lightning. The glow isn't blinding, but pretty subtle and soft.

The product is basic on a mix of different oils (jojoba, sunflower oil), so once applied on the skin it feels runny, but absorbs very quickly, leaving your skin with a dewy glow. How to use O.Two.O Liquid Highlighter? Apply it on the highest points of your face and body - cheekbones, nose bridge, cupid's bow and collar bones.

Overall, I'm very impressed with the performance of O.Two.O Liquid Highlighter. This product has a very yummy scents, soft formula and it is truly holographic, just as claimed! On my opinion the shimmer particles look especially beautiful on the body and I will continue to use it mostly as a body highlighter. And I almost forgot to mention that it is cruelty free, which is a really nice surprise.

What is your favorite liquid highlighter at the moment?
Lots of love,
