Best of 2010

Some of the best products I found this year.

BEST "NEW" (=new to me) MINERAL MAKEUP COMPANY
Beauty from the Earth
-excellent quality
-so many colors that even I can't decide what to order ;)
-samples in jars (I don't care but most people do not like sample baggies)
& Shiro Cosmetics
-excellent quality, I especially loved iShadow collection 

BFTE Lucky me


Shiro iShadows
THE BEST PIGMENT:
Sugarpill Hysteric
How could I forget this! I always (I really mean ALWAYS) get compliments when wearing this color, it's amazing!





THE BEST LIPSTICK
Burberry Lip Cover in "Cameo"
-Pure luxury :D
-Cameo is a a perfect neutral color



Lumene Wild Rose NATURAL lipstick
-12 gorgeous colors, I want them all ;)
-good inci
-sheer but not shimmery colors


BEST CONCEALER:
NARS concealer in Honey
-easy to apply & soft
-perfect color for me




BEST LIPBALM:
Silk Naturals lipbalms
-great selection of scents
-natural inci
-lovely labels





BEST BODY CARE BRAND
Alverde
-Body butter & Foot butters are THE BEST! The scents are great and so are the incis. Me likey :D





BEST SHAMPOO
S.A.V.E. shampoo normal/oily

-The best ecological shampoo I've ever tested. I love the scent, this is not watery and makes hair feel so good.



BEST FACIAL MASK
Oliv by LaClaree
-I haven't used mask for years but this non-drying clay mask is great! I've used it at least once a week since I got it.




BEST EYESHADOW PALETTE
Urban Decay Naked
-Excellent quality and the colors are gorgeous: I didn't know it's possible to make a brown/neutral palette which is not boring :D So the colors are gorgeous but the quality is even better!





BEST CLEANSER FOR FACE
Mádara Deep purifying foam/ all skin types: No wonder this is a best seller!  This foam ewas enough even for my heavy eye makeup. Feels so fresh but it's still very effective. Just remember to use toner afterwards, your skin can dry out if you don't. The toner balances the ph level of the skin after cleansing.




THE BEST DEODORANT:
Mádara Herbal deodorant: I was told this is an effective doedorant, this contains alum which is not the same as aluminium. This really is very effective! I have used it for a month now, my underarms are now so soft and no smell problems either. My skin is very sensitive and I've had problems with deodorants, so I'm so glad I found this one :D




I have naturally tested many great products this year, these are just the ones I remembered now :D

  2. This was a good read! I'm jealous that you have the Naked Palette - at first I was totally underwhelmed, then it slowly grew on me, and by the time I wanted to buy one for my mum's christmas present (and then for myself, lol) it was completely sold out! :P Those lipbalms look interesting as well.

Toinen blogi ja uusi työ

Olen tosiaan ollut "hieman" hiljaisempi täällä viimeaikoina. En ole kuitenkaan blogiani kuoppaamssa (ajat muuttuvat) ja yritän kirjoitella edes silloin tällöin. Varsinkin ihania ekodödöjä pitäisi arvoida piakkoin!

Olen tosiaan vaihtanut alaa "kaikessa hiljaisuudessa": olen liikunnanohjaaja, personal trainer, FasciaMethod-ohjaaja ja teen päätyöni hierojana. Opiskelen myös koulutetuksi hierojaksi eli kiirettä piisaa :D Toisen blogini löydät täältä: voimistaja.wordpress.com, sekin laahaa nyt hieman jäljessä koulukiireiden takia. Sieltä löytyy (osittain, loput tulossa kun ehdin) liikunnan ammattitutkinnon suorittamisesta Eerikkilän urheiluopistosta ja firmani sivut siis ovat Voimistaja.fi

Aktiivisimmillani olen Instassa: voimistaja, tervetuloa seuraamaan!




UD Naked Heat, lämpimämpi arkimeikki

Naked Heat -paletti tuntui kuvien perusteella liian lämpimältä väreiltään minulle mutta ajattelin, että jos en itse välitä niin tytär ainakin...  Ja kun muut meikkibloggaajat saivat minut tästä kiinnostumaan, ei auttanut kuin täydentään Naked-kokoelmaani :D

Yllättävän paljon pidin kuitenkin paletista, itseasiassa paljon enemmän kuin Naked 2 -paletista, joka oli minulle liian viileä sävyltään, ihoni näyttää vähemmän hehkuvalta sen kanssa. Tämä Heat taas oli erittäin ok, enemmänkin ehkä vain omalla epämukavuusalueella :D Itse asiassa olin jo lahjoittamassa palettia tyttärelleni mutta hän kehui miekkini näyttävän todella kivalta. Taitaa siis olla pian pari Naku Heatia meillä :'D

Kuvaan tekemäni meikki oli lopulta tummemmasta päästä eli ehkä sellainen pieneen iltamenoonkin sopiva. Aika kiva silti, ei tuntunut liian punaiselta. Tätä lämpimämpiä sävyjä en koe paletista osaavani käyttää.











Bonuksena pikameikki tyttärelleni, tähän käytin selvästi lämpimämpiä sävyjä:






Ja tässä vielä muiden m…

New Aromaleigh products for face (primer, powders, foundations)

Vain englanniksi, omaa tekstiä on vähemmän ja menee muuten liian sekavaksi :)



illuminata luxe mineral finishing powder
Yay! "diamond" powder without silica! I can use some silica but better if not too much... So I prefer products without it. This made skin look very radiant. Me likey! I already bought a full size of this :D "Aromaleigh "Illuminata Luxe" Finishing Powder is a translucent, sheer loose mineral cosmetic powder, that contains reflective minerals to give your skin a subtle, more radiant appearance. Fine lines and wrinkles are less dominant, and a fine finish is revealed. It takes the Illuminata formula a step further with the addition of a revolutionary light-diffusing diamond copolymer, which is a spherical powder with an entrapped photoluminescent diamond core. This diamond copolymer ingredient, while not "mineral" or "natural" in nature, adds great benefit to this Finishing Powder's ability to impart a soft-focus effect and …
