Wishlist #1

Wishlist #1

Wishlist #1 by olgaolis featuring fringe moccasins

I love doing wish lists, I think it helps me prioritise the things I really want and the thinks that, in time are shown to not worth the hype.

  • I have been wanting the naked 2 pallet for quite some time now but never got around to it. I was amazed with the colours of it when it first came out but in general I am someone that doesn't spend a lot of money over make-up, this pallet though is among my certain buys, someday...
  • Longchamp bag. I think this colour is no longer available but I think that it would look lovely in burgundy. This bag has also been a wanted item for some time and I think I'll start saving for one some time soon.
  • Next are those amazing moccasins by minnetonka that are soo cute. I have a passion for flats and I find that I get to use them much more than high heels. That doesn't mean I don't like heels by any means, but when it comes to clothing for me comfort is a big factor. 
  • I found about the David and Goliath brand through missglamorazzi a great youtuber and since I got in their website I have found my favourite sweatshirt. Except from the we will wok you shirt, they make many other really funny and smart shirts, howdies, pjs and accessories so check them out.
  • Next is a baublebar beautiful rose gold bracelet. I don't really like gold so I was amazed at how much I like rose gold and white gold.
  • Last comes the burgundy parka and I have been wanting a parka since last year but as many other things I never got around to finding one that would worth its money.

Thank you for reading, I really enjoyed doing this wish list post and I think I will be doing more. 

Let me know if you liked it!!!

I love Drugstore Make-up tag

Hello everyone!!!
I decided to do the I love Drugstore Make-up tag that is on you tube at the moment.
Being a university student 90% of my make-up are drugstore so this is a tag that is quite made for the make-up that I wear.

1. What is your favourite drugstore makeup brand?
Essence, no doubt, is the cheapest and in my opinion best drugstore in my country. 

2. What are your favourite face, cheek and lip products?

My favourite face product is the bb cream by maybelline, for the cheeks I really like the Cynthia Rowley for avon blush in peony pink and for the lips I really like the Hawaiian tropic Aloha Kiss Island Berry Lip Gloss .

3. Least favourite product?

Avon's long lasting lipstick, too drying.

4. What is the best makeup bargain?

I don't know if you can get it now any more but for me it is the pupa doll make-up pallet. You have great quality eyeshadows, lip glosses and blushes all in one.

5. What is your favourite underdog product? (Something you love that often gets overlooked?)

The I love stage eye shadow base by essence.

6. A drugstore product that is overpriced?

Here in Greece I think maybelline mascaras are way overpriced.

7. Show your best drugstore dupe(s)!!

I don't know really, the truth is I never try to find a dupe for a product I just try to get the best product for the best price.

8. Drugstore product that isn't worth the hype?

Beauty Line eyeshadows.

My extremely late september favorites

                                                        Better late than ever right?
                                                Here are my favourites for this month.

  • First (from left to right) comes the clinique dramatically different moisturising gel from clinique and I have been loving this so much that I got myself the big size.
  • Next comes the erre due exclusive nail polish. This nail polish was a gift by a magazine and the number doesn't show so I can't really help you there, but it is a very beautiful wine colour. If I had to guess I'd say the number is 33.
  • This month I have been really enjoying the intensive body lotion from avon care for extra dry skin and I really like using this in the areas I have shaved while I am bathing. Now I may have extremely oily skin and skull but the skin on my body is very dry and it gets much worse after I have shaved so hydrating cream is a must. However no matter what kind of hydrating cream I use, if it has perfume on it,  it makes my skin extremely itchy and painful. On the contrary nothing like this happens with this cream and the hydration is great.
  • Next to it is the 2 in 1 volume mascara by essence for which I've talked before here, but this is a great mascara and I love how you have the option to use either the brush with more or less product. You can really experiment and use it in different ways.
  • No matter how good the unscented lotions are for certain parts of my body, I could never say no to a yummy scented body lotion like the relaxing body milk with vanilla and honey by apivita which smells soooooooo good. Fresh and sweet at the same time and you only need the smallest amount to cover big areas. Loving this body lotion.
  • Beneath it, is an essence colour and go nail polish in a beautiful grey-purple-brown shade and the name is 34 walk of fame.
  • The next nail polish by essence is from the vampire's love collection in 04 the dawn is broken and it is a soft grey colour with tiny silver glitter in it, Loving it.
  • The lip gloss is from priorities and it is a favourite of mine that I have rediscovered lately and I love it, the shade is No23 Pink Bride and the perfect pinkish nude shade, the colour is also really pigmented and the applicator is also pretty good. The only downside is that it is sticky.
  • I have been looooooooooooooving this top coat. I have seriously never tried such good a top coat before. It preserved the colour on my nails for about week, it dries fast, leaves my nails glossy and is overall great. Definitely recommended. The name is essence quick dry top coat.
  • The conditioner I have been using lately by herbal essence is pretty good and helps with the straightening of my hair. I did not believe that it would do what it says but it has prove itself to me and I am amazed with how good this works along with some other products. But it also works great as a simple conditioner for my very dry ends.
  • I have also been using this sunsilk shampoo for dry hair and the reason I have been liking it especially is that although it was moisturising it didn't had a thick consistency so it hydrated my hair without weighting them down.
  • Next is my skincare routine by essence which I am just going to mention here without saying that it works miracles because I have been only using it for some weeks now so I can't be sure. But so far it is helping with my breakouts. I use the anti-spot wash cream gel, the antispot gel and the anti-spot facial toner.
