Hi everyone, how are you doing today? Today I have prepared an fabulous review for everyone, who loves enlarging circle lens. I still can't understand, how such a small detail as an iris color and pattern can bring such a massive change to your personal appearance and even your personality. I feel like a whole new person, when I try out new circle lenses, especially if it is such a dramatic enlarging lens as the Princess Pinky Eclipse Grey Circle Lens* by world's biggest and the most famous circle lens supplier Pinky Paradise. I had an incredible experience with this store in the past, and 'Crystal B' lens by EOS, are still one of my favorite pair, you can check out my review on these lens hereSo, let me start my review straight away, because I can't wait to share my thought with you guys!

Basic Circle Lens Info:

Diameter: 14.5mm
Water Content: 38%
Base Curve: 8.6mm
Life Span: Yearly Disposable Contacts
Availability: https://www.pinkyparadise.com/
What inside: One pair of lenses and one cutie animal/macaron lens case

I want to start by expressing a special thanks to Pinky Paradise for few extra gifts, that go with every purchase. First of all, you are going to receive a very cute plastic case, to store your circle lens.I also received a tiny Hello Kitty sheet mask for face, which reminded me of a candy so much, that I almost put it in my mouth! But, fortunately, I saw a small how to instruction on a back of 'candy wrapper', this prevented my further embarrassment. A sweet tooth inside of me was really upset after finding out, that Hello Kitty wasn't edible, but a beauty junkie was very happy and even a little bit surprised. And, as a person, who loves stationery, I want to say a huge thanks for a couple of stick-on tattoos and stickers, that are very helpful in keeping track of dates.

Pattern & Enlargement

I have a naturally dark brown eyes with a black ring of color around the brown iris. Some think it is a pretty boring eye color, but, what is even worse, it is pretty hard to find a colored circle lens, which will blend with my natural eye color. Despite of my skepticism, Princess Pinky Eclipse Grey lens beautifully blend with my eye color, so I can definitely recommend them for everyone with dark brown eyes. The bluish-gray color mutes my natural dark iris, adding few frisky black freckles to the natural pattern of my eyes. The huge black ring around the lens makes my eyes look like a full moon, very beautiful design! The enlarging effect is truly impressive, these lens have 14.5 mm diameter and it is more than enough, to make my eyes appear huge and anime like.

Comfort

Eclipse Grey Circle Lens are more comfortable, that I thought they will be. Of course, as most enlarging circle lens, they tend to get dry during the day, but there is nothing a few eye drops can't solve, especially when it comes to eye dryness. I also experience a very mild discomfort, while removing and applying Eclipse Grey circle lens, but it is just because of the large diameter. Almost forgot to mention, that Princess Pinky lens are very thin and lightweight, you won't feel them in your eyes.

Overall

I think, this is my favorite pair of circle lens so far. Eclipse Grey have an incredible beautiful design. they enlarge my eyes and feel very comfortable. After a day of wearing, you might feel a little discomfort, but, overall, they are easy to apply and beginner-friendly. Some people may not like they dark circle around the iris of the lens, but I think it emphasizes the eyes, making the look more dramatic. Thank you so much for reading my review, I hope it was somehow useful to some of you, guys. I will talk to you very soon, until next time 

Lots of love,

Becca Sunchaser Palette | Review & Swatches

Do you love to have bronzed skin, but your hard-earned summer tan disappeared? Don't worry about that, because a well-chosen cheek palette will help you to return your beloved sun-kissed skin. Today I'm going to talk about Becca Sunchaser Palette: a beautiful trio of beach-inspired blush, highlighter and bronzer that will help you to recreate a healthy glow. This palette were nicely sent to me by Glam Express - one of my favorite platform for beauty enthusiasts. I have become a Spotlight Member of September and Glam Express community gave me this palette as a gift. So without further ado, let's proceed to the review.

The Sunchaser Palette features three gorgeous colors for your cheeks: 'Ipanema Sunset' -  a medium brown bronzer, 'Apricot Blossom' - peachy pink mineral blush and 'Opal' shimmering metallic pressed highlighter. The middle shade Apricot Blossom is marvelously decorated with Becca logo. I want to mention that all these three colors remind me very much of famous Naked Flushed contouring palette by Urban Decay. Even the weight of each shade from the palette is approximately the same. The fill weight of Naked Flushed Palette is 0,49 oz ( 14g) and the fill weight of Sunchaser Palette is 0,42 oz (12g).

All pigments are finely grounded and feel smooth and silky on the skin. They beautifully blend and give a desirable sun-kissed effect. Some people were complaining about bronzer, claiming that it was too harsh and dark. I have a very light complexion and can't complain about 'Ipanema Sunset', I just wish the shade was a little bit colder. 'Apricot Blossom' is absolutely gorgeous color and to be honest I'm tempted to try it out on my eyes, together with 'Opal'. The surface of the skin so polished after you finish to contour your cheeks.

How to use the Becca Cosmetics Sunchaser Palette? After you are done with your regular foundation routing and set it with translucent powder you can start to contour your cheeks. I prefer to start with 'Ipanema Sunset' and apply it under the cheekbones, gently blending it with a medium angled brush. Then I apply blush directly above the contouring and highlight the cheekbones to give my face a natural dimension.

Overall, I loved the Sunchaser Palette by Becca, the colors are pigmented and versatile. The design of the palette is amazing, you can take this trio with you on vacation or use it on a daily basis. At the moment Becca Sunchaser Palette retails at $58.00, but speaking frankly I don't think the price is justified. Of course the product is great and I liked it very much, but you can find a very similar and cheaper dupe. Until the next time ♥

Lots of love,

Rainbow Unicorn Highlighter | Review & Swatches

During the hot summer days I prefer to highlight my cheekbones using powder highlighters. Dry illuminators, shimmers and highlighters are not greasy therefore they are the best option for everyone with an oily skin type, especially during the summer. I personally have a dry skin type, but even my skin starts to melt in the summer`s heat and I can`t imagine using an oil based highlighters for my cheekbones. Pastel rainbow highlighter is such a huge trend at the moment and as always I`m the last person on this planet to try it out myself. That`s why today I`m going to review a Rainbow Highlighter Powder* by a famous Born Pretty Store: an online makeup, fashion and jewelry retailer for beauty junkies.

First off let me talk about the packaging of this product. Rainbow Unicorn Highlighter comes in a thin cardboard box and immediately after I unwrapped the aluminium pan I threw away the packaging and placed the pan inside of a magnetic makeup case. The packaging looks absolutely useless to me, but I`m happy about the fact that it is recyclable and it does not take too much space. The surface of the Rainbow Unicorn Highlighter is very beautiful and reminds me of the tropical ocean`s water. Stunning and colorful! I like to apply this product on my cheekbones and the rainbow effect makes me feel like a mermaid :)

The formula of this Unicorn Highlighter is slightly disappointing. Of course all of the pastel shades are very pretty, they are pastel, so the highlighter does not loo weird on the skin. You can use all six shades at the same time or one by one, as you like. The brightest color of all is blue, but pinks and purple look nice as well. But the downside of the rainbow highlighter is its texture: it is too dry and chunky. It looks like the highlighter was baked for a better color pay off. The shimmering particles in the product are too big and rough, though the final result looks nice on the skin. You can use this highlighter in two different ways: dry use, for a soft and dewy finish and wet use for more intense color and more blinding effect. 

Overall, I wanted to say that it is a perfect highlighting eye shadow for everyone who is not afraid of trying something new and different. Thanks to a special baked formula this Rainbow Unicorn Highlighter will last forever and you can use it in many ways. Hurry up to buy this highlighter, while Born Pretty Store has a huge discount on this product, at the moment it retails for $3.99. And don`t forget to use a special code LIZH10 to receive 10 % discount on your purchase, click the banner below to check out the Born Pretty Store product range. Hugs and kisses :*

What is your favorite highlighter at the moment?

Essence is one of my favorite budget friendly makeup brands, I`m obsessed with their selection of inexpensive cosmetics, so when I run out of my Palma Christie Ultra BB Cream (review here), I`ve decided to try out  Essence Camouflage 2 in 1 Make-up & Concealer - a very special product that combines foundation and concealer in one cute tube. Essence claims to offer a long-lasting, high coverage effect, hide all skin imperfections and provides a flawless finish – without a mask-like effect. So let`s take a closer look at this magic potion!

Essence Camouflage Concealer has a very smooth texture, quick drying formula and matte finish. It is water based, so I can definitely recommend this product to everyone who has an acne prone and oily skin types. Because of it`s quick drying and opaque formula Essence 2 in 1 Make-up & Concealer tends to emphasize fine lines and dry skin patches, but you can easily solve this issue with a help of a nice moisturizing cream and/or makeup primer.

The coverage is terrific, it covers up all the freckles, redness and blemishes with one fine layer and a little of this foundation by Essence goes a long way! The formula is buildable, so if you need an extra coverage here and there you can always reapply a tiny drop of this product and concealer the problem. Camouflage 2 in 1 Make-up & Concealer is available three shades - `10 ivory beige`, `20 nude beige` and `30 honey beige`. Even though I have a pretty light skin I decided to give a try to a shade called`20 nude beige` - a yellow based light to medium shade.

Overall, I loved using Essence Camouflage Make-up & Concealer, this is a great budget product for people with oily and acne prone skin. It is truly a long lasting and highly pigmented foundation, which does a great job of hiding skin imperfections and dark circles. Even though it does not fill in my large pores, I will definitely continue to use it, but with a nice primer underneath this foundation. 

Lots of love,

I`m a huge fan of backpacks and rucksacks and love to wear them on everyday basis. Maybe some of you might think that adult backpacks look immature, but I`m found of the idea to place my belongings in one huge bag and having both of my hands free. Recently I had an awesome opportunity to pick a stylish  and practical backpack at Zaful. This year is very special for this store and it`s team and all the customers, because Zaful celebrates it`s 3rd anniversary! To celebrate this special event Zaful hosts a huge giveaway and I`m going to talk about it in the end of my post. And now let`s take a close look at this gorgeous backpack.

The Studded PU Leather Backpack* is made from a special PU material - a kind of polyurethane material that looks and feels like faux leather but with a beautiful shiny appearance. This backpack looks very similar to the famous Michael Kors collection of rhea studded leather backpacks, but it is a lot cheaper and cruelty free. Backpack features silver-embossed decorative studs and a huge amount of different pockets - two big departments for books, clothes and cosmetics, two interior pockets for tiny secret necessities and one secret pocket on the back of the backpack. You can use this secret department to hide your cash, credit cards and documents.

What I really love about this backpack is it`s medium size - it is not a mini backpack where you can`t even fit in your cell phone and not a huge school backpack. But at same time it looks petite, cute and practical. It is very lightweight, an empty backpack weights about 1kg, it has an adjustable (60 - 90 cm) strap length, so you can easily fit this backpack on.

Overall, I`m in love with this backpack, currently it is my favorite item in the wardrobe. The Studded PU Leather Backpack is a day wear versatile backpack and it perfectly goes with both sporty and grungy outfits, holding all my everyday essentials. It is very easy to match this gorgeous backpack with all my day to day outfits. You an easily wear it with sophisticated outfits - ruffled top, leather skirt and a pair of classic pumps, or for an edgy look wear this backpack with thigh-high patent boots, tight bodycon dress and leather jacket. Don`t forget to add few accessories to accomplish your outfit!

MAC `Beauty Marked` Eyeshadow | Review & Swatches

liz breygel mac cosmetics eyeshadow beauty makeup review
liz breygel mac cosmetics eyeshadow beauty makeup review
liz breygel mac cosmetics eyeshadow beauty makeup review

Good day everyone! As a loyal fan of a dramatic smoky eye and it`s variations I know the importance of a good eyeshadow. You can create the most beautiful smoky eye makeup using only one shade, if your eyeshadow is well - pigmented and perfectly blends on the skin. MAC single eyeshadow in shade `Beauty Marked` is a perfect companion of any dramatic look, so let`s find out how good is this product in action!

`Beauty Marked` by MAC is matte black eyeshadow with a fine red glitter. It is not very pigmented, so I prefer to use it over a good eyeshadow primer or black eye kohl. The texture is a little bit chunky and dry, but the finish is bold and sophisticated. On the official MAC Cosmetics website `Beauty Marked` single eyeshadow is described as a black - red color with pear sparkles and velvet finish. However, the color looks a little bit different than in the pan, it is less sparkly and the color is more on a purple side than red. 

Overall, I really loved `Beauty Marked` - the formulation of this eyeshadow is great, it is easy to blend and it is very long lasting. To tell the truth, I expected a bigger punch of a color, but with a decent eyeshadow primer the color pay off is quite good and I haven`t experienced any fall out. Each single eyeshadow by MAC carries 1.3 g / 0.04 oz of a product and retails at $16, you can check out the full information other MAC products on the official website here. Thank you so much for reading my review, I`ll talk to you very soon!

Lots of love,

Catrice Re-Touch Light-Reflecting Concealer | Review

Many people suffer from dark circles, hyper pigmentation, spots and the fastest way to get rid of this little flaws is to cover them up with a good concealer. No one denies the need of a healthy lifestyle, but sometimes even a balanced diet and a long sleep cannot hide those pesky dark circles. Today I want to talk about the  Re-Touch Light-Reflecting Concealer by a famous drugstore makeup brand Catrice. 


Catrice Re-Touch Light-Reflecting Concealer comes in a pen shape packaging with a build in synthetic brush and a twistable end - in order t get the concealer on the brush you need to rotate the tube. I find this packaging comfortable and what is even more important hygienic, you can always wash and disinfect the brush before usage. This concealer is available in three shades - 005 light nude, 010 ivory and 010 light beige, all of the shades have yelowish undertones to camouflage the blue and purple hues in the dark circles, but I think these shades are very light and unfortunately do not suit all the complexions.

But the most important is the formula of the Catrice Re-Touch Light-Reflecting Concealer, it is sticky rather than creamy, but after the concealer sets and absorbs into the skin it becomes smooth and silky. Catrice concealer provides a light to medium coverage and does not crease under the eyes. Catrice claims that formula has a special light reflecting pigments for radiant eyes and fresh appearance, but to be honest I haven`t noticed any `light reflection` and the finish looks pretty matte to me. It feels very lightweight on the skin and gives a very natural look. I like to use a litttle bit of a translucent powder over the concealer to make it last longer.

Overall, I liked using the  Light-Reflecting Concealer by Catrice. Those who need some serious coverage won`t like this concealer because of it`s light formula, but if you need to slightly freshen up your makeup look this product will work great. The drugstore price of the concealer makes it worth to try, especially if you are a fan of natural look and need to touch up the makeup throughout the day. And what is your favorite concealer at the moment?

Lots of love,

Faux Fur Waistcoat 2017 Spring Trend

liz breygel fashion beauty blogger outfit of the day ootd
liz breygel fashion beauty blogger outfit of the day ootd

Faux fur coats, vests and jackets have been winter/spring fashion trend as long as I can remember and I doubt this trend will disappear in the nearest fashion future. At first faux fur vest seems like a very hard item to pull off, but I`m convinced that every fashionista should be prepared for the upcoming spring fashion season and get one `furry` item in your closet. 

Frequently clothes, shoes and accessories look absolutely different in real life than they do in pictures from the fashion stores. Fortunately this Faux Fur Waistcoat* didn't fail to meet my expectations and looked even better than pictures on the Gamiss website. The fur looks and feels very soft and natural, the hairs are pretty long, but unlike he natural fur the faux fur doesn't need a special care. 

The best thing about fur vest is that it can easily transform any casual outfit! Whether you layer it over a knitted sweater and skinny jeans, or pair it with your favorite dress the result is certainly be stylish and elegant. Wondering what shoes to wear with your favorite fur vest? Don`t forget to check out my nu goth Platform Ankle Boots review, these boots will complete the outfit.

In a nutshell, I`m crazy over this waistcoat, it is the first time I have a courage to get something so bold and casual. And even though freezing winter days are gone, spring winds can also be cold and severe at times, especially at night. So if the temperature suddenly drops. Cozy `furry` vest is a great way to keep yourself warm but glamorous. The Faux Fur Waistcoat is available in 7 unique shades - from a classic black to cute nude pink color it was so hard for me to choose one! Be beautiful, stylish and stay kind to animals, because no animals must suffer for the benefit of our stylish outfit.

What’s your favorite way to wear faux fur?
Lots of love,

beauty blogger skin care maybelline review

Hi girls, today`s post I want to dedicate to all dry lips sufferers, because I know how hard is to maintain a smooth `baby like` lip skin. Most of the regular lip balms does not offer a long term and deep hydration, but from no one you can forget about dry and chopped lips. You know why, because I`ve found an awesome solution of this problem - Baby Lips Balm & Blush by Maybelline. It is not only super moisturizing product, but it is cute as well!

Maybelline Baby Lips balm has a very smooth non - sticky texture, it feels very lightweight on the lips and a rich moisturizing formula deeply hydrates the skin. But what I like the most about this lip balm is that you can use it as a cream blush on your cheeks. It gives a very sheer and natural hue to the skin and dewy finish, usually applied over the foundation and concealer - a perfect variant for everyday makeup look. The Baby Lips balm glides on easily and works the best for those, who have a dry and combined skin type. 

Overall, I`m totally obsessed with this lip balm, it has a nice soft scent and gives a fresh spring hint of color to the lips and cheeks. It is available in four gorgeous colors, each with it`s own sweet scent - Innocent Peach. Flirty Pink. Booming Ruby. Shimmering Bronze, you can check the shades and the description on the official Maybelline website here. The Baby Lips Balm & Blush by Maybelline retails at $4.99 for 4,5 gr (0.16 oz.) of the product and I think it is a great deal. If your lips are dry and thirsty I definitely recommend you to try out this cute lips balm, you will feel an instant relief and your lips will be silky smooth for hours. Need a special intense treatment for your dry lips? Check out my review on the amazing Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask, because your lips deserve to be pampered as well!
