NYX Lip Lingerie 

This autumn I got the obsession, that I have to buy a brown lipstick. I want it, I need it! I’ve never tried one before, only reds, so why not buy three to try out more shades at once?

I ordered these from Pretty.fi with my own money. In the package was one golden eyeshadow too, but more of that later. 

My skin is pale, tone is in the colder side, so I went with shades that looked cool. Does this make any sence? On the picture there are, from left to right, Corset, Honeymoon and Beauty Mark. 

I did these swatches quick after receiving the ordee, without any liner or priming, so don’t shoot me! Pics are taken in natural light with my OnePlus3. 

First one up was Corset. Shade is grayish, cool, beigelike color. I could wear this in everyday use, it’s pale but still edgy enough, rather this than any pale pink for me. 

Second one is Honeymoon. This shade is just as right in between as I thought, darker than Corset but lighter than BM. Maybe not for everyday, but I really like this shade too. I need to get used to wear other than classic red, but i think I can rock this out. 

Last but certainly not the least is the Beauty Mark. It has a bit more warmth in it, but stays on the cool side. Dark, burgundy brown, which suits my pale skin perfectly. For evenings out and parties. I think it seems a bit light on my pic,  and the true shade is off, it is a bit darker in person. 

All and all, I can see myself wearing these daily, for me there are no restrictions how to look while working or just going to store. Paler shade is easier to go with, but darker one can save an otherwise tired or boring look.

Quality seems great, just what I would expect from NYX. Lip lingerie dries matte, a bit sticky, but doesn’t make a mess and stays put. Stickiness I notice when I rub my lips together, but not when I touch them with my finger. I don’t recommend these, if you have very dry lips, these show every rip and bump.

And these stick on like a flu, easiest way to remove Lip lingerie from your lips is oil or moisturizer, I noticed this while swatching. Micellar water did nothing! So I hope that it means a long lasting wear. 

4/5, scent is okay, lipstick-like but disappears soon after applying, feels a bit dry but still comfortable, wear seems long lasting and colors are awesome. You’ll be seeing a lot of these in the future!

Madara Cosmetics #2

Hey guys! 

I told you earlier that I ordered more Madara products, and they arrived in on Monday, yay! Decided to put the Micellar water through the ultimate test right away. 

Still loving the design. 

Will it remove my makeup? (add dramatic music here) 

So, I  have my full face on: Base, cover stick, foundation, powder, contour/highlighter and blush. Eyeshadow, liner, mascara, browpen and -color. I think that’s all!

Makeup has been on for eight hours and I was at work, so it’s a bit worn off.


Sorry for the funny angle, my bathroom disagrees with the lighting. Okay, so, Micellar water, attack! Here is the first pad, with half of my face. And what’s left of it:

Boo! Don’t freak out, it’s still me.

So not bad, it removed a ton of slap from my face and doesn’t irritate too much.  Couldn’t notice any scent while using the water, and forgot to sniff it from the bottle. 

Here are all the pads I used:

One for each side and one for finishing. I like what I see! 

Micellar water I used before, took me from 4 to 8 pads to get my face all clean! Eyeliner fought back hard, but this guy went in kicking down doors and beat everything up!

All clean and fresh-but-not-so-fresh-tired-af-from-work-face! Redness mainly is from wiping and rubbing my face with cotton pads, my skin calmed down in minutes. 

4/5, I still prefer a proper facial wash, but this will be my savior while traveling or just being too effin tired. Like, for 3-5 times a week. 

I also tried out the moisturizer, went in straight after the Micellar. 

It’s very thick when pumping it from the bottle, but also very sufficient. This little pea in the pic, is just enough to cover my whole  face. 

Scent is lime or lemon(grass?)-like, fresh and not too strong. Citrus anyway. Moisturizer itself is surprisingly light, absorbs quick and easy, leaves my skin soft but not oily. I know that I need a serum with it, ot a thicker moisturizer for the winter time, but for now this is enough.

4,5/5, love the scent and everything, but it could be a bit more efficient.

These I can recommend for all skin types, they are gentle but efficient, light but moisturizing and very reasonably priced. 

I’ve found myself a new skincare serie and I’m loving it!

Madara Cosmetics

Hey guys! Long time in silence again, I had to put my blog on ice for summer. We got a new puppy, I had the busiest time in work and when that was dealt with, we moved our apartment. Moving was at the beginning of August, and I still have my polishes all in boxes, because I have no shelf to put them in. I KNOW, horrible isn’t it?

But, now it’s autumn and everything is getting back on track. Recently I got a hint from a friend about this organic cosmetics serie called Madara Cosmetics and their upcoming sale.  

Madara is said to be ecological, safe and effient, mainly vegan and cruelty-free. They do have the ECOCERT certificate, and that proves that they only use natural ingredients. Efficiency is dermatologically tested and the very heart of Madara products is flowers and herbs from the Baltic meadows and forests. You can find more information on their FAQ-page.

I couldn’t wait for the sale, so I used my “Subscribe to our newsletter and get 15% discount for your first order”-code and got a cleanser and a toner. I ordered from their Finnish webstore, so delivery came in after two days. 

Bottles are pretty, design is clean and very classic, almost healthy looking.

Cleansing milk says :”Creamy and soothing milk with Northern Oat and Linden Flower cleanses gently and effectively. Removes makeup. Helps maintain the skins moisture barrier. Skin feels soft, supple and comfortably clean, never dry.–”

Comforting Toner: “Discover softer and smoother skin with this comforting essence. Instantly soothens and calms sensitive, dry and tight skin. Deeply tones and hydrates. Regulates the pH balance, prevents skin irritation. –”

My skin is dry, very sensitive and gets easily red. Moisturizer can’t be too thick, so I have to play around with serums and stuff. On summer I can give myself some slack, but when weather gets colder and drier on autumn and winter, I need to fix my armory. Or my bathroom cupboard, but you know.

SO, first up was the cleanser. Scent is kinda flowery. Not nearly as earthy and moldy as in organic products I’ve tried before. Not the best fragrance, but also not too strong and bothering. Consistency is very creamy and on thicker side. Small amount is enough, the cleaner spreads easily. I always use my Oriflame facial brush when cleaning, so with that the cleaner didn’t foam. I tried both ways, to rinse and to wipe it off with the toner and both worked fine to me, removed my makeup and left my skin feel clean but not dry, which is quite surprising. Usually gentle organic cleansers don’t wash off my makeup too well and the stronger ones dry up my face like Sahara desert. 

So it’s a 4,5/5 to cleanser, only negative is the scent. 

Toner is just a clear water-like liquid, as toners usually are. Scent is granny-like, some flowers in it, but again, nothing too strong. Just a small amount to a cotton pad is enough, whether you use it to wipe off the cleanser or finish after rinsing.

Left my skin feeling so elastic, clean and healthy, I almost skipped my moisturizer! But not a bit oily or irritated. Very refreshing! 

4,5/5 points to this one too, again it’s the scent. 

Here’s my face after, not nearly as much redness as after some cleansers and no eyeliner or mascara leftovers, yay! I need to plug my brows, geez! 

All and all, I love these products! They are way cheaper that what I’ve been using until now,  and I was sure that nothing else will work. I did put in a new order and my Deep moisture cream and Micellar water are on their way. Let you know more when they reach me. 

I recommend these to everybody, but first of all if you want ecological and vegan products and second, if your skin is sensitive and you’ve lost all hope with inexpensive products. Just check out the ingredients list if you’re an allergic and pick what suits you. I also like that they have categorized their page with skintypes, so you don’t have to go through everything in the store to find out what might suit your skin. Try it out, if it suits you and if not, pass it for a friend. 

These are going to be my go to products now on. 

Oh, and let me know how this post looks, I tried the WP app and wrote this with my phone, and pictures are phone taken too! Can I continue or do I go back to my laptop?
