Halloween look

We had our halloween party again this year and I was a witch, as usual ;D I bought some new makeup stuff yesterday for this look. Well, better late than never. LOL It's not very traditional to celebrate Halloween in Finland this way  but kids of course love it :) When I was a kid, we never celebrated Halloween.

Kaveri järjesti eilen Halloween-juhlat, johon osallistuimme koko perheen voimin. Minä oli tietenkin taas noita, joka vuosi sama juttu. *heh* Nyt päätin ostaa hieman lisää Halloween-meikkejäkin, tosi ajoissa olinkin asialla ja eilen kiiressä juoksin kaupasta toiseen ;) 

I needed darker lipliner, I was planning of buying black lipliner from Inglot but it was sold out... I took this cool red intead and it worked well! I just applied black lipstick (MAC Black Knight) & black lipgloss (Inglot Sleeks no 99) over it.

Ajattelin  ostaa Inglotin mustan  huultenrajauksen mutta se oli loppuunmyyty  ja omat kaapit pullollaan vain nudesävyjä. Päädyin sitten tähän viileään punaiseen, j…

EOTD with bareMinerals Sugar Plum

I got bareMinerals Sugar Plum eye shadow from Jennifer when we met in Hong Kong. Thank you  :) This is fact my first BE eyeshadow and at least the color couldn't have been more perfect. This shade of plum is just so "me" and I love to use this color with light green. If you think this combo is too colorful, plum looks great with beige and baby pink too. The color is not that unique but still very pretty. Description says this should be "metallic" but I think it's not... It has some shimmer so it's not matte, but still not shimmery either. In fact I liked this one, it's very pigmented. It looks chunky in the jar, like my MAC pigments.

Inci: Manganese Violet (CI 77742), Mica (CI 77019), Iron Oxides (CI 77499, CI 77492, CI 77491), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891)

Sain bareMineralsin Sugar Plum-luomivärin Jenniferiltä, kun tapasimme Hong Kongissa :) Tämä on itseasiassa ensimmäinen BE-luomivärini ja väri ei olisi voinut olla täydellisempi minulle. Tämä luumuns…

Perfume memories: LouLou by Cacharel

I used LouLou by Cacharel in 80's and I've wanted to repurchase it for several years now. This scent is not available in Finland anymore, but when I saw it in Parfumie Douglas in Germany, I just had to get it! I still love this scent so much, but unfortunately the bottle is quite far from stylish ;)

Tuli sitten hankittua ehta kasarituoksu Saksasta ;) Cacharelin LouLou oli suosikkini 80-luvun lopulla, Suomesta tätä ei taida enää saada. Olen aivan hulluna tähän tuoksuun, jota en osaa edes kuvailla mitenkään... Alla kuitenkin tuoksun tarkemmat kuvaukset englanniksi. Pullo on valitettavasti vähemmän elegantti. Muistatko sinä tämä tuoksun?

"One of the top selling perfumes of the 1980es, one of those bold, powerful, distinguishing and timeless fragrances. Loulou is a controversial perfume that people either like, or dislike, the one that provoke different emotions and indifference for sure is not one of them."

"The perfume is built around the beautiful and sensual sc…

Bye bye Allure of the Seas!

We are of course very pround here in my town about the shipyards. The newest ship, Royal Caribbean  Allure of the Seas, will leave Turku today. It was supposed to leave early this morning but it's too rainy & windy at the moment. Yesterday Turku was very international city, a lot of foreigners with Allure of the Seas Start Up Crew jackets :D It was nice. I hope someday I'll visit one of these lovely boats in Caribbean. The ship will go to Florida, it should be there 11/11.

We are also so happy that a new order was just made, for local Viking Line, so the ship will be smaller ;) It's very common to travel between Finland, Sweden & Estonia by boat. If you ever visit here, you might want to try that too!

Whipped shea & some random pictures

I had whipped shea with olive from Vihreä Kosmetiikka (=Green Cosmetics) last winter but I tried some cheaper ones meanwhile... Unfortunately the ones I tried were not as soft as this one so this time I bought it again. Last time I had olive & shea but this time I wanted to try rose & shea :) I use this on my kids cheeks and even my hands. This is so soft and melts on skin, I love it! I've heard that it's easy to make whiped shea but I'm just too lazy. LOL

Minulla oli käytössäni tätä Vihreän Kosmetiikan vaahdotettua sheaa viime talvena mutta tässä välissä testailin halvempia versioita... Eivät valitettavasti olleet kuitenkaan yhtä hyvin kuin tämä ja nyt hankin taas talvea vasten uuden. Viime kerralla käytössä oli oliivi-versio mutta nyt haluasin testata ruusua :) Käyttelen tätä kuivalla iholla, esim. lasten pakkasen kuivattamila poskilla (sekin aika taitaa taas pian olla edessä :P). Vaahdotettu shea toki kuluu tavallista nopeammin mutta toisaalta käyttömukavuus on i…

[review] The All Natural Face

I bought these The All Natural Face pigments last winter but somehow I never started to use them so I guess it's about the time now ;) I also made you a little TANF-TKB comparison bacause one of my friends thought these could be quite similar. In fact after looking at the baggies, I thought these might be, but I'm not at all worried about that anymore! And if the company makes lipsticks, cream concealers etc, why wouldn't they make the eyshadows which are probably the easiest to make :D The names of the pigments are not that unique but I really like them: It's easy to pick Green ice storm, Purple ice storm etc in the morning!

Ostin nämä The All Natural Face-pigmentit jo viime talvena mutta en jostain syytä alkanut pigmenttejä silloin käyttää, ehkäpä on siis jo korkea aikakin ;) Tein myös pienen TANF-TKB-vertailun, yksi kaverini vain sanoi näiden kovasti muistuttavan TKB:n sävyjä. Itse asiassa katsottuani näytepussukoita, pelkäsin jo pahinta... Mutta onneksi olivat erila…
