Trind Quick Dry

If you use nail polish often, fast drying top coat is a must have :D Well, in my opinion anyway. I have used a few bottles of Mavadry from Mavala but this time I wanted to test other brand. Big mistage, I must say :/

I really like Trind's packaging and I like many of Trind's products, so I bought Trind Quick Dry. I have now tried Trind and Mavadry at the same time and unfortunaly I don't like Trind Quick Dry much. It's ok but my nail polish won't dry as quickly and sometimes the brush kind of sticks to nail polish-> nail polish looks bad. I also like Mavala's wider brush more, it's easier to apply.



Olen vuoden verran käyttänyt kynsilakan pikakuivattajaa enkä ymmärrä miten olen selvinnyt ilman sitä aiemmin :D Olen käyttänyt pari pulloa Mavalan Mavadrytä (se isompi pullo pahvipakkauksessa, ei minipullo) ja tuote on ollut erinomainen. Nyt piti kuitenkin ostaa uusi ja ajattelin testata vaihteeksi jotain muuta. Trindin Quick Dry-pikakuivattajaan päädyin kivan …

Sad news from Aromaleigh

Very sad news from Aromaleigh... The shop will be closed. It's very sad, I really love the products, Kristen and I found many great friends from AL forum too. But I also understand Kristen, as an entrepreneur and as a mom. I hope she will feel better and have a great time with her son! I still can't imagine mineral makeup without Aromaleigh :´(

Surullisia uutisia Aromaleighiltä... Firma lopettaa :´( Yllä linkki Aromaleigh newsiin, jossa asiasta enemmän.

Inglot Nail Enamel Remover

I bought this mini Nail Enemel Remover from Inglot. The product is nice & effective and this mini size (25ml/ 3€) is just great for travelling. The bottle is orange, so even I don't accidentally use this as eye makeup remover :D I like this one but my favorite is still Depend green.

Ostin tämän pikkuisen kynsilakan poistoaineen Inglotilta. Tuote on kiva ja tehokas ja tämä minikoko on ihan täydellinen matkailuun. Usein pikkupullot ovat turhan isoja, tämä 25ml (3€) on aivan riittävä. Plussaa siitä, että pullo on oranssi! Eipä mene sekaisin muiden tuotteiden (kuten silmämeikin putsarin) kanssa :D On tosiaan hyvä mutta suosikkina pysyy silti Dependin vihreä.

Scholl foot care products

I wanted to test this stick for cracked heels. I won't take any pictures of my feet, that wouldn't be too pretty. LOL. Last summer I used the cream version of this product and it was effective, just a bit too messy to use. This is much easier but doesn't feel that moisturizing either... My skin looks sometimes white when this is absorbed (=dried).

Results after 1 week: my skin looks better but I've now used also foot cream daily... I'm not very impressed but I'll continue using this.

Results after 2 weeks: My heels are definitely less cracked that before! But the results are nothing like in the picture in the packaging (see the picture below).

Results after 3 weeks: I don't need a pedicure in a salon :D My feet look so good! I have already recommended this product to my friends. So if you are motivated enough to use this regularly at least 3 weeks, I'd say buy it :D

Halusin testata Schollin "kantapääpuikon", viime kesänä testasin vastaavan voitee…

Essence Purple 26 Break Through

I LOVE purple! Almost all of my clothes are black but now I've bought quite a lot of clothes in purple. I was wearing one purple dress today and wanted matching nails. I knew I had a nail polish like this but it took me a while to find it. Yep, too many nail polishes ;D I was almost ready to buy OPI Pamplona Purple but then I found this: Essence Break Through. Aww, pretty...

Lila on tullut suosikkivärikseni pikkuhiljaa ja vaatteita on tullut hankittua tässäkin sävyssä ihan kivasti :) Mustaa toki pääasiassa mutta kesällä ehkä värit ovat kivammat, pastelit taas eivät ole "minun juttuni" vaikka toki väritykseeni sopivat nekin. Tänäänkin päällä oli Sisleyn ihana lila mekko ja halusin aamukiireessä siihen sopivat kynnet. Tiesin, että joltain merkiltä tällainenkin lakka valikoimistani löytyy, mutta mitään mielikuvaa miltä firmalta ja missä sellainen ehkä voisi olla :D Jep, liikaa lakkoja, mutta toisaalta ei aamupaniikissa yleensäkään löydä mitään! Olin jo valmis ostamaan OPI P…

Kierti Bamboo cleansing cloths & eco cleansers for home

** Meow Lost Rainforest is now available! You can find my swatches from here. **


I noticed Kierti dishcloths made of bamboo terry and wanted to test these, mainly bacause these looked so pretty :D But I was in fact very impressed, I like these more than microfiber ones! These are as effective, at least in my opinion, and microfiber can feel unpleasant in dry skin. This feels just good. Kierti's bamboo fabric is made and dyed in Finland and the products are also made here. Kierti ships internationally too but the site is only in Finnish.

Huomasin Kiertin tiskirättejä Ruohonjuuressa, materiaalina bambufrotee, ja ostin testiin oikeastaan nätin ulkonäkönsä takia :D Mutta olikin lopulta erittäin yllättynyt, nämähän ovat (ainakin omasta mielestäni) ihan yhtä tehokkaat kuin mikrokuituisetkin! Mikrokuitu voi myös tuntua kurjalta kuivalla iholla, tämä taas ei "tarraa" samalla tavalla ihoon kiinni. Kiertin bambu-kangas valmistetaan ja värjätään Suomessa, tuotteet myös ommellaan tä…

Inglot Sleeks cream lip paint 90 (pink)

I LOVE Inglot Sleeks lipglosses and especially Sleeks creams, ones without a shimmer. I have quite a few of these lip glosses already... I'm very glad they don't have many colors I'd like to buy anymore :D Color 90 is creamy (mauve-y) pink, very pretty.

Inglotin Sleeks-kiillot ovat suosikkejani ja niistä erityisesti täysin hohteeton cream-koostumus. Olenkin hankkinut näitä kiitetttävän kokoelman verran, onneksi ei montaa haluamaani sävyä enää valikoimista löydykään ;) Väri 90 tuo mieleeni sorbetin, aivan ihana sävy.

Meow Lost Rainforest

One of Meow's best collections, Lost Rainforest, will be back soon. I'm not sure when and I'm on vacation now. I just wanted to do these swatches and I hope you find those helpful, when the collection is available again :) edit: The collection is now available, you can find it from here.

My favorite from this collection is Canna blush (iridescent pink), it is just GORGEOUS. I applied it very heavily for the swatch, it's very wearable and makes skin glow. I used it also in my FOTD below. There will be some new colors too, I have to test those...

Meowin ehkä ihanin kokoelma, Lost rainforest, tulee takaisin :D En ole varma ajasta ja nyt lomailenkin huonompien nettiyhteyksien päässä. Ajattelin kuitenkin julkaista nämä swatchit, jos vaikka auttaisivat sitten tilaamisessa :) edit: Nyt kokoelma on taas ostettavissa ja se löytyy täältä.

Jos luulet, että voisit pitää Canna-poskipunasta, osta se! On nimittäin aivan upea. Swatchissa se on toki todella paksulti levitettynä, oikein he…

Sephora glitter eye shadow "brush" 24

I didn't buy much from Sephora in Barcelona, just MUFE Sens' eyes eye makeup remover and this Glitter Stay, a "brush" made of silicone. This should help to apply glitter over eye makeup and it really grabs a hold of a glitter! I think I'll use glitters more often now, this is nice :D

Barcelonan Sephora oli suuri ja ihana mutta hyvin pienillä ostoksilla sieltä selvisin, taitaa olla tästä hankalasta ihosta hieman apuakin välillä, ainakin kukkarolle ;) Mukaan tarttui vain MUFE Sens' eyes-silmämeikinputsari (vanha suosikkini, oli noin 10€ halvempi kuin Suomessa) sekä tämä hauska Glitter Stay, silikonista valmistettu "sivellin". Tämän pitäisi helpottaa glitterin laittamisessa luomille ja kyllähän tämä kivasti nappasi glitteristä kiinni! Taidanpa käytää glittereitä nyt useammin, tämä on kiva :D

5 FAVORITES: Nude/natural lippies

It was so difficult to choose just 5 favorite lippies! These are all nude or at least quite natural colors, since I practically always wear natural colors :D I have posted about all of these products before.


natural lips

Rimmel "Nude Delight" lipstick:








This is the only lipstick in this list :) For me this is just perfect! I love the mild scent, it is moisturizing and the color is a perfect nude.

Icon We Care "Natural Nude" lip gloss:





Magic Strawberry, Perfect Purple & Natural Nude.

This is one of the best natural colors for my coloring. I also like the scent a lot.

Stardust "Strapless" Mineral lipcolor:






Strapless is surprising the only mineral lippie in my top 5 list. I have so many very nice mineral ones but this is my favorite :)

Inglot Sleeks VLC gloss 71:






71 is a gorgeous pink, opaque and pearly. It should be a "lip plumping" gloss but don't worry: here is not those irritanting ingredients and this feel VERY good.

Fyrinnae Deceptive Innocence…

KIKO Galactic nail laquer 278

I hate taking pictures of turquoise or purple nail polishes, it is just so difficult :P Anyway, I'm so glad I bought this beauty from Barcelona. I really understand why this KIKO nail polish is called "Galactic", it twinkles :D It has lovely pink microglitter on purple base. The color is the closest I could get, it is really more pink-ish purple. Very lovely.

Oi että inhoan ottaa kuvia turkooseista ja liloista lakoista, ihan mahdottomia saada värit oikeanlaisiksi :P No joka tapauksessa olen kovin iloinen, että ostin tämän kaunottaren Barcelonasta. Lakan laadunkin nimi on Galactic ja tämä tosiaan oikein tuikkii :D Lilalla pohjalla on hennon vaaleanpunaista mikroglitteriä. Kuva on paras minkä lakasta sain, oikeasti on kyllä punertavampi lila glitterinsä takia. Ihana.



Greetings from Cyprus :) It's very HOT here and I love it! I can use my laptop here but I might not have time to reply or read every post while I'm here. So if you have a questions etc, just send me emai…

Inglot black lips collection

** I'm now in vacation for 2+ weeks :D I have made many post so you will have a lot to read meanwhile but I'm not able to reply that quickly. I also probably won't have time to reply to everybody but I'll read every comment and reply, of course, if you have anything to ask! **



Inglot Black Lips: Lip pencil, lip gloss, lipstick (2 different formulas) & lip paint.

Maybe this is not the most interesting collection for me for the summer but I definitely need these for Halloween :D I took a few pictures in the Inglot store and I will buy at least that pencil later. In fact black lip gloss is surprisingly wearable over lipstick, I have a few already so I don't really need this one... But it is Sleeks cream (my favorite lip gloss formula) so I'm tempted. LOL.

Ei ehkä kaikkein kiinnostavin kokoelma näin kesällä mutta viimeistään Halloweenniksi täytyy tuo jumbokynä ainakin hankkia :D Otin muutaman kuvan Inglotin myymälässä Black Lips-kokoelmasta, kuvat eivät siis ihan …
