Hello my angels! Do you believe that the October is over already and there is only one month of golden autumn left for us? I need to say that I`m very happy that the October is finally over, so I can finally share with you this little list of my favorite products. I haven`t done this kind of posts for such a long time and I missed them so much! So let`s start right now ;)

Cute Fruit Hand Care Cream

Recently I did a full review with lots of pictures on my blog, so you can check it out here. But I knew that I need to include Peach Hand Cream in my October Favorites list, because it is simply amazing. I love everything about this cream - it`s cute packaging, it`s natural scent and a think moisturizing consistency. Definitely a must have for this winter season! During the cold seasons my skin gets very dry, but this little peach makes a huge difference.

Almond Oil For Hair & Body

I purchased almond oil right after I colored my hair. I can`t say that my hair was very damaged, but my ends got a bit dry. Any kind of oil is beneficial for hair, as long as you don`t have allergy. But Prunus Amygdalus  (sweet almond oil) is hypoallergenic, so it can be safely used even on baby`s skin. Almond oil is naturally endowed with this highly potent antioxidant vitamin. Regular application of the oil can protect your skin and hair from stress and UV radiation damage, keeping it soft and supple. Almond oil is optimal for treating hair loss and damaged hair. 

Victoria`s Secret Pure Seduction Body Wash

The next product in my list is the Victoria’s Secret Pure Seduction Red Plum & Freesia  Body Wash. I can`t express how much I love it`s floral fragrance! It is so strong and fresh at the same time. Sure this body wash is a little bit expensive for it`s size, but we all need to pumper our skin time to time. After the usage skin becomes very soft and fresh, it doesn`t leave greasy feelings and washes away easily. 

Holika Holika Sweet Cotton Pore Cover BB Cream

If you also have a problem with large pores and black heads, you`ll understand why I love this product so much. Holika Holika Sweet Cotton Pore Cover BB Cream makes my large pores disappear right after the application. Fast and painless :) Must have for everyone who wants a porcelain skin and struggles with post acne scars, fine lines or huge pores. Read my full review and check out before and after pictures here

The Skin Food `My Short Cake` Liquid Eyeliner

I`m a huge eyeliner lover! I wear it on daily basis, nights out and, as you know, frequently use it in my step by step makeup tutorials. The best of all I prefer liquid eyeliners, like this `My Short Cake` Eyeliner by The Skin Food. It has the most fine brush and the darkest pigmentation. And what more do we need from a good product? It has a matte finish and doesn`t smudge easily, even if you`ll be rubbing it off with your finger. Just give it  a try girls, `My Short Cake` eyeliner will never disappoint you,

That`s all for my October favorites! Have you trued any of these products? I hope you all had a great October, and I wish your November, the last autumn month, to be even better. Hugs and kisses <3

Lots of love,
Liz

Make Your Pores VANISH

Large pores are my biggest skin concern, they are not cute at all and nobody wants their skin to have those prominent `craters`. I always been trying to reach that baby doll skin and to make my pores look smaller. Fortunately, there are many skin care treatments and magic makeup products nowadays, that makes our life easier. And today I want to share with you some of my favourite beauty finds, that help to camouflage appearance of those pores. But before camouflaging, we need to start from a special skin care routine, that will help to minimize large pores. I love to start from Celebrity Skin Clarifying Skin Polish, because it gentle exfoliates and hydrates my skin, keeping my pores tidy and my skin soft. After cleaning my face, I like to use Xiang Nai Xin Whitening Peel - off Mask, which treats large pores, post acne scars and reduces appearance of freckles or hyper pigmentation. I like to use it once a week and it`s more than enough to keep m skin fresh and clean. 

After we cleaned our face it`s time to prepare our skin for the makeup. I love to start from The POREfassional primer by Benefit or 3 Concept Eyes Pore Silky Balm. These two products are my best friends, they are similar and both work in the same way - they smooth large pores, cover the redness and create a perfect canvas for the foundation. You can even use them both at a time, just start from the Pore Silky Balm, as it is more transparent, than the POREfassional :3 If you search for a good product to blur out your skin - definitely look on these gems.

There are lots of different ways and makeup techniques, that helps us to hide large pores and scars, but all of these products are just a temporary solution. If you want to shrink the pores, you need to start from a basic things that keep us healthy and beautiful, like a balanced diet and a beauty sleep. But I hope my post will help you in this hard fight for a healthy smooth skin. Wish you all a nice day!



Lots of love,
Liza

This was my first meeting ever with Ciaté brand - a London based brand, that sells nail polishes and nail care products. But I need to say, that I always heard just a good reviews about it, so I was very excited to try this Ciaté Nail Tonic by myself, and to make my very own opinion.

All of us, at some moment of our live, have a `bad nail days`, especially if you do your house -holding work by yourself or love to use crazy colored nail polishes all the time. Ciaté 'Nail Tonic' Hydrator was developed for weak and bendable nails, that are dry and easily breakable. This product contains Rose Muscat Oil, Calcium and VItamin E, that will help to repair already damaged nails and give them a second life. Nail Hydrator is very easy to use - apply a generous coat of this Nail Tonic, before to apply your favourite lacquer. This will help to strengthen your nail plate and protect it from cracking, peeling or dryness. You can also use Nail Hydrator  on it`s own. It has a slightly pink shade, look like a natural nail colour, but with a touch of a gloss.

Overall, I need to say that Ciaté 'Nail Tonic' Hydrator is working for me, my nails got a lot healthier, than they used to be. I can absolutely recommend it for everyone, who is searching for a nice and easy in use nail treatment. Thanks for reading my post, have a nice day <3 


Lots of love,

Recently I was given an awesome chance to try out Vitamin C Serum for Face* by Maple Holistics. This is an anti - aging serum and it was developed to reduce wrinkles, fine lines, discolorations and other skin problems, which occur with age. I was very excited see this serum in action, especially after I saw the list of the it`s ingredients, just check it out girls : water, Vitamin C, vegetable glycerin, Hyaluronic acid, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf, Vitamin E Acetate and many others natural acids and extracts. Sound like a magic `Eternal Youth Potion` in a little glass bottle!

The bottle of  Maple Holistics Serum has a comfortable dropper tip, so you can measure the quantity of the product you need at a time without any problem and add some more later, if needed. I recommend to store the serum in a cool dark place, so the harmful UV lights will not reach and spoil your `potion`. 

The star ingredient of the Maple Holistics Serum is Vitamin C ( or L-ascorbic acid), it can treat multiple skin care concerns, helps to boost natural collagen production and provides potent antioxidant protection, it serves as a shield saving our skin from damaging free radicals. Other important ingredient of this product is Hyaluronic acid - well -known and very important component of our skin`s cells. Today, Hyaluronic acid is considered equally important, or maybe even more important, than Collagen. It keeps our skin young looking and  removes waste matter from cells. By the way, this serum contains properties to provide light protection from the sun, so you can use it as a part of your morning routine.

Vitamin C Serum for Face has a very light scent of glycerin and a little bit oily, but very light consistency, like if big amount of water was mixed with sunflower or olive oil. After you apply it on the skin it absorbs very quickly, and skin begins to feel a little bit tacky, like if you would put a sweet water and let it dry. I apply it right before I go to sleep, to avoid the feeling :)

I will be honest with you, I loved to use Maple Holistics Serum, unfortunately to see some drastic results I need to give it more time. But I already see that my skin looks smoother and fresher. Vitamin C Serum for Face retails at $11.77 and you can order it on official Maple Holistics website. Thank you to read my review, I really hope it was helpful for you <3

And what is your favourite Skin Serum?

Lots of love,
Liza

Autumn will pass quietly and quickly. Look out of the window girls, the winter is knocking and it`s ready to come in! We all need to be prepared: get our cozy sweaters from the closet, prepare our favourite movies and TV shows and don`t forget to purchase new skin care products, because our skin needs a special treatment during the cold winter time. But no worries angels, I have a nice product to suggest for all of you, who wants to keep their hands` skin nourished this winter. Cute Fruit Hand Care Cream* , which looks like a tasty fresh peach will save our dry hands.

Cute Fruit Hand Cream comes four different shapes and scents - apple, lemon, pear and peach. I chose a Peach Cream, simply because peach is on of my favorite fruits. And I need to say that I`m so glad about my decision, this product has a fragrance of a natural peach yogurt! So yummy :3 But the packaging is not only cute, it has a special plastic seal inside, that prevents leaking, so you can safely take your cutie with you to work, study or journey.

The color of the cream has a pale rosy shade to it, unfortunately my camera couldn't`t catch how pretty it is. Peach Cream has quite a thick texture, but not greasy at all, that`s why this product is to nice for a colder weathers. Thick texture helps to keep even the most dry skin nourished and moisturized for longer time. In the description box of Cute Fruit cream I found out that this product also has a whitening effect, so you can use it on your elbows to fight the pigmentation and dryness at the same time. 

Overall, I want to recommend Cute Fruit Hand Care Cream for all of you ladies, it is a winter time must have, on my opinion. Especially for such a nice price, it retails at $3.52 and you can buy this cream online. Don`t forget to use a special discount code LIZH10 to receive a 10 % discount. Stay warm ladies, I`ll talk to you soon <3

We all need a good rest and beauty rest to look fresh and healthy, especially after long 8 hours of hard work. Living a big polluted city also doesn`t help our tender facial skin to look better. But, unfortunately, modern women don`t have that much time to stop and take care just about their beauty - visit spa, professional cosmetologist or simply have a beauty sleep! But I found a very simple solution, that will change your life forever and I`m so excited to share my review with you!

VIICODE Oxygen Eye Mask* - is a new gel mask, rich with oxygen and deep sea biological extracts, that will help even the most tired eyes. The mask is safe for all skin types and can be used for people with sensitive skin or allergies. It is alcohol free and has natural ingredients, like ecological Plant Oxygen Extracts (EOPEs), which helps to repair damaged eye skin and it also contains a healthy dose of Vitamin E. 

All you need to do is to follow your usual night time skin care routine - clean your face, apply some moisturizer, avoiding under eye area and for the last step apply two VIICODE Oxygen eye pads under your eyes. Yes, you heard correct - the magic mask will be working, while you will be resting. The VIICODE eye mask was developed to de-puff and hydrate the lower eye zone. For better effect, put the mask in the fridge for a few minutes, you will get a pleasant cool feeling and the ingredients will start to work faster. Sounds like the spa procedure at home ;) I left the mask for the whole night and even in the morning it was still a bit moist and fresh.

Overall, I can say that I absolutely loved VIICODE Oxygen Eye Mask. After the first usage the skin under my eyes looked so much brighter and healthier. I haven`t experienced allergy, dryness or any other unpleasant sensations, while using this mask, it was very comfortable to sleep. To receive the maximum results it is recommended to use these eye pads at least few times per week. You can buy VIICODE Oxygen Eye Mask online on Amazon.


Lots of love,

red and black makeup tutorial red eyebrown harley quinn arlequin makeup tutorial blogger pictures joker makeup liz breygel

Hi angels, have you decide what costume and makeup you will wear this year on Halloween? I propose you to try out and recreate Harley Quinn makeup look. She is a girlfriend of a famous Joker and a best friend of  Poison Ivy, who appear on Batman Animated Series. In August this year was released a movie `Suicide Squad`, where Haley Quinn reapered again, in her new sexy outfit and a little bit different makeup. But I love the classic black and red makeup look more, so here is my interpretation:

red and black makeup tutorial red eyebrown harley quinn arlequin makeup tutorial blogger pictures joker makeup liz breygel

1. The first step is to fill in the eyebrows with bright red pencil, you can use a lip pencil for this. Don`t forget to clean out the edges of your eyebrow with a concealer,

2. Let`s start to apply red eye shadow on the inner half of eye lid.

3. The next step - apply black matte eye shadow on the outer corner of the eye lid, creating a dramatic     black wing.

4.  Reapply same black and red matte eye shadow in the opposite turn on the lower lash line.

5. Line your eyes with black liquid eyeliner, draw a little triangle on the center of the lower lash line.

6. Finish the Harley Quinn makeup look with a pair of false lashes. I also added little dots, but this step is absolutely optional.

That`s all girls, it was very fun and easy to create this makeup. You can use any colours you want, that will fit your cosplay costume or outfit. Thank you so much for reading my post, have an awesome Halloween party!

Recently I had an awesome opportunity to try out 15 Colors Matt Eye Shadow Palette* by Born Pretty Store, so today I want to share with you my opinion about this product.

15 Colors Matt Eye Shadow Palette* comes in a glance, black case. There is a very good mirror inside, which is big enough to see the whole face at once ;) You will also receive one little sponge applicator inside of the case. There are 15 neutral eye shadow, all of them have matte finish and a smooth texture. Some of the light shades are a little bit chalky, so make sure that you are using a good eye shadow base. I wish the shades had names, but I`ll try to describe them to you as best as I can :

  First Row:
- Pure White (matte)
- Pastel Orange (matte)
- Light Brown (matte)
- Light Bronze (matte)
- Light Coffee with Milk, purple undertone (matte)

  Second Row:
- Medium Coffee with Milk, purple undertone (matte)

  Third Row:

Overall, I loved this palette, it has every shades you need for the everyday, festive and evening makeups. It is beginner friendly product, because it is very easy to work with the shades and the texture. All the colours are easy to blend, they are absolutely matte, without any shimmer to them. The only thing I wish were better - the pigmentation. You need a good eye shadow primer, to make the colours stand out brighter and last longer. But for the price, it is awesome choice. You can buy this palette online at Born Pretty Store for $9.99, Matte Eye Shadow palette is on a promotion now! Don`t forget to use a special code LIZH10, to receive a 10 % discount :3 Hope you liked my review girls, I`ll talk to you later <3

Hi my angels! I`m such a big fan of all natural skin care products, but my all time favourite is a clay mask. I just love the texture and calming effect natural clay has on my skin. And today I`m glad to introduce you to the Maple Holistics Natural Ancient Clay Mask*, which were made of three different clays, each with it`s own therapeutic benefits for any skin type. 

Ancient Clay Mask comes in simple plastic container, which has 8 oz. (about 226 gr.) of a product. You will also receive a couple of plastic spoons, to measure out the proportions of the clay and water. The list of ingredients is simple, but awesome: French green clay - great for dry skin, helps cell regeneration and removes impurities; Bentonite clay - perfect for oily skin, helps to exfoliate dead skin; Multani Mitti (Fuller’s Earth) - Fuller’s Earth forms as a result of pure decomposed volcanic ash, this clay helps to nourish the skin. Wet clay has a fresh scent of wild flowers, that grow in a field and a river water. I love this fragrance, it reminded me of my childhood :)

Before the application it is better to remove the makeup and clean your face. Mix 1 scoop of clay with 2 scoops of clean water, the consistency should be smooth and a little bit `soupy`. Apply the generous coat of the mask on the face and neck, avoiding sensitive areas. In 10 - 15 minutes, after the clay will dry out, you can rinse your skin with warm water.

Maple Holistics Ancient Clay Mask is awesome product, my skin felt to smooth and fresh after the first usage.

Cocoa Brown 1 Hour Tan Mousse / Review

The summer have passed, and the sun doesn`t shine so bright anymore. It is getting harder and harder to keep our sun-kissed summer glow and the skin is getting dull :( Tanning was always a big problem for me. When I was a teenager I spent all my summer holidays at granny`s house, which was situated on a countryside, right next to the lake. My skin always looked bronze after few hours on the beach. But when I got older my skin stopped to tan, now it burn on the sun. For all of you, who have the same problems as me, or for those who wants to make their summer glow to last longer I introduce you Cocoa Brown 1 Hour Tan Mousse* by Marissa Carter. 

As I mentioned on my blog before, I have a very pale skin, which sometimes on a pictures looks grey, so I was very happy to try out Cocoa Brown Tan Mousse, especially after so many positive reviews I heard about this brand. Cocoa Brown 1 Hour Tan Mousse is universal self tan, which perfectly suits any skin type and shade. The colour intensity depends on you, it varies between light and dark depending on how long you leave the tan on before showering. You can leave the mousse for 1 hour, to get light natural glow; 2 hours - for a medium caramel tan; 3 hours - for dark tan. If you want to get even more intense results, check out 1 Hour Tan Mousse Dark, it is new product by Cocoa Brown which was developed for ladies who love a really intense tan.

I wanted to have a natural - looking tan, so after all the preparations, I leaved mousse for about 1 hour and a half. To tell the truth, I was a bit scared that my skin will turn orange, or the applicator mitt will leave terrible strokes on my skin. But the application was easy and smooth, and after I rinsed my skin, it looked fresh and lightly sun - kissed. Another thing I appreciate very much in every cosmetics is a scent. Cocoa Brown Tan Mousse has a very nice, light scent, it doesn`t have any chemical or vinegar fragrances like other self tan products. It was a very pleasant discovery :) Your tan will last about a week, or longer - it depends how will you care about it.

Overall, I`m very pleased with the look of my skin now. Unfortunately, my camera can`t show the real shade of my skin before and after I used Cocoa Brown, in real life it looks even better and more natural. I absolutely recommend for all the girls, who love self tanning - bronzed glowing skin, without fake orange undertones is the result you will receive, thanks to Cocoa Brown :3


Lots of love,
Liza
