Skincare products I've used up lately, will I repurchase them?

So it's time for me to show you all the skincare products I've finished up lately and tell you if they were good enough for me to repurchase them. I have to be honest and say that 'empties' posts aren't my favourite to write, I always feel so un-motivated to do it but at the same time, in the typical beauty blogger style, I collect all the empty jars, tubes, bottles just to my husband's dismay, haha!
If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen me showing you lots of empty packaging some time ago and saying that I can't be bothered to write about them. Well, they ended up in the bin where they belong but since then I have accumulated another ridiculous amount of empties, so this time I've decided to share them with you on the blog as I know many of you actually like seeing those posts :)
I will keep it short and sweet and refer you to any proper reviews of some of these products I've done in the past.

Perfect pairings, how to make any lipstick last longer and look prettier

Pairing a lip liner with a lipstick is nothing new but it seems like with all the lip kits coming to the market lately everyone seems to be using them more, including me. I've only ever used to reach for lip liner when wearing very bold lipstick to help it stay in place and although I've been buying some lip liners along the way I rarely used them. Until recently. One day I was just playing with makeup, as you do if you're beauty junkie, and have discovered a beautiful lip combo by pairing one of my favourite lip liners with a lipstick that I don't actually like on its own on me. And that encouraged me to experiment more with all the lipsticks that I've hardly been wearing because I'm just not a fan of them and start pairing them with different lip liners to create pretty combos.

LVL lash treatment with Nouveau Lashes - my experience and 'before and after' photos

If I could only keep one makeup item it had to be mascara, simply because my natural lashes are almost invisible and I look like an alien without it, lol! If I need to run some errands in the morning and don't want to bother with any makeup I still probably would apply a coat of mascara to my lashes just to feel more human-like :)
So when Nouveau Lashes sent me an invitation for a complimentary LVL Lash Treatment* as a Mother's Day treat (thank you!!) I couldn't wait to have it done.

Trialling out Korean skincare

Korean skincare has become increasingly popular during the last few years in the western world. We want to try their advanced formulas and incorporate 10-step skincare routines. Judging by beautiful skin of Asian women they must be doing something right :)
I have dabbled in Korean skincare before but had not tried too many products so when I was offered to choose a few from Korean online shop BB Cosmetic I got really excited and spent a long time browsing though 1000s of product but finally decided to pick something from the brand Benton which was on my 'to try' list.

1 palette - 3 eye looks, Too Faced Sweet Peach palette

Today I'm bringing you another 1 palette - 3 eye looks post (check my previous post with Zoeva Caramel Melange palette), this time I want to share three looks I created using the hyped up Too Faced Sweet Peach palette (review). When I got the palette last year I was a bit underwhelmed by it, maybe because of the crazy hype it was going around it but the longer I have it the more I like it. It's got a nice range of warm toned shades, perfect for Spring/Summer and if it had a good quality black eyeshadow it could be my perfect palette. There are tons of possibilities to create different eye looks with this palette but I picked to share only three which I created in the last few weeks. I tried to use shades that are probably less reached for in this palette and give you some inspiration to experiment with different colours.

Three fabulous overnight face masks

 I have well established morning and evening skincare routine and while I enjoy getting my skin ready in the morning for makeup and all the daily challenges that come with the radiation, pollution and dehydration, the night time is the perfect opportunity for a proper pamper. We don't need to worry about how shiny our skin looks or if the makeup will slide off in a matter of minutes, when we sleep our skin will benefit from all the goodness in the forms of overnight treatments which will help to restore and replenish it making it look plump, nourished and glowing in the morning.

My beauty tips on looking youthful for longer

Aging is an avoidable process in life, one we haven't mastered to stop yet :) And while I think getting old is a privilege not everyone is granted I sure want to look my best and youthful for as long as possible.
There are many factors that will determine how quickly our skin will show signs of aging, from our genetics, lifestyle, diet, skin type or illnesses we to go through in our life.
And even though some things we can't control we're still able to establish a good skincare routine that will help our skin look youthful for longer.

A few new products from Makeup Revolution

I haven't talked about any Makeup Revolution products on my blog for a long time so when I was kindly sent some new releases I thought I will share my thoughts on them with you.
Makeup Revolution, alongside their sister brands all gathered under TamBeauty umbrella, is well known for their very affordable yet, usually, good quality products and a hell of a lot of 'dupes' (check the Sweet Peach palette comparison post).
I've been a fan of the brand since they launched their first products almost 3 years ago and have bought and reviewed many of them. After a while though I couldn't keep up with their constant new launches and got a bit bored with the whole 'dupes' situation.
However I still think they have some awesome products in their range and you can't argue with their prices.
