Lumene Mineral Bronzer Indian Summer/ Intiaanikesä

This bronzer from Lumene was on their summer collection, I think. I wanted to buy it, looked so cute,  but maybe I really didn't need it because I just thought it was too pricey :D Then it was sold out... But finally I found it from sale, now the price was very nice too ;D

This is in fact a very lovely bronzer: soft, easy to apply and the color is very good for me (Lumene colors usually are, it's a Finnish company). I guess other Lumene bronzers are as good as this one but this was just so cute. LOL

Tämä Lumenen aurinkopuuteri taisi kuulua viime kesän kesäkokoelmaansa. Tuote oli kivan näköinen ja halusin sen ostaa mutta en tainnut tarvita, kun pidin hintaa liian kovana :D Sitten se olikin loppuunmyyty, ja minua harmitti... Lopulta löysin tämän alesta ja hintakin oli varsin kiva. Olisin varmaan ostanut normaalihintaakin nyt.
Tämä onkin todella kiva tuote: pehmoinen laatu, levittyy nätisti, sopivasti hohdetta ja värit sopivat suomalaiseen nassuun (niin kuin Lumenella aika usein so…

Four Reasons: Silver Mist-hopeasuihke hiuksille

*only in finnish, but if you want to know something about this products, I'll reply :)*

Tämä Four Reasonsin Silver Mist on todella kehuttu tuote ja tulipa se tuossa muutama kuukausi sitten hankittua myös.  Kesti aika kauan ennen kuin uskalsin testatakaan, suihke on todellakin melkoisen lilaa ja jätetään hiuksiin. Pelkäsin, että värjää vaalennetun hiuksen pysyvämminkin (osa raidoistani on todella vaaleita) lilaksi mutta onneksi näin ei käynyt. Ihan kiva on keltaisuuden poistoon, minusta ihan toimiikin, mutta vähän tämä lätistyttää hiusta... Toimii ehkä paremmin, jos tarvitsee hiuksiin jätettävää hoitoainetta? Siksi en tätä kovin usein kuitenkaan halua käyttää.

Onko tämä tuttu tuote? Oletko pitänyt siitä? Kampaamoista ja mm. Sokokselta löytyy tätä, hinta taisi olla hiukan alle 10€.






Bobbi Brown Forest shimmer ink gel liner

I have had one Bobbi Brown gel liner (Granite Ink) a years ago but now I bought my second one from Germany :) Granite Ink didn't look that good on my skin tone (imatte, greyihsh color) but I liked Foresh Shimmer Ink a lot and I was curious of testing this again.

I LOVE MAC Fluidlines and this one from Bobbi Brown is as good. Not better or not worse, a bit different though. MAC is softer, this a bit harder and cremier. But that might just depend on the color! Both are nice, Bobbi Brown is just not sold in Finland so I prefer MAC :)

The color of Forest shimmer ink is perfect for me! I'd call it greyish olive with subtle shimmer. The shade is perfect: not too dark or too light. It's not bright but still not boring.

Minulla oli Bobbi Brownin geelirajaus (Granite Ink värissä) vuosia sitten mutta nyt Saksan reissulta mukaani tarttui toinen :) Granite ink ei ollut minulle väriltään paras... Jotenkin nuhjuisen matta, likaisen harmahtava (eri iholla toki voi toimia aivan eri tavalla…

MAC Paint Pot "Treasure Hunt"

Well, I got my first MAC Paint pot :D This REALLY is my first Paint Pot ever! But now I admit that I should have tried this earlier, as a primer this makes eyeshadow really last! But in my case that is not important (eyeshadows don't crease on my lids) but I love the shimmer in the metallic Paint Pots, it creates an interesting effect under eyeshadow! The matte ones are probably great as well but since I don't need "just a primer", I'll continue collecting the pearly/metallic ones :D

Paint Pots are really easy to apply: usually it takes some time to get used to a new product but this was so easy! I used synthetic flat brush and the color blended like a dream.

As a color Treasure hunt is (cool) light gold/yellow, works nicely under beige and light greens, for example. This shade is not too warm/rich gold but pale and cooler shade. Very nice! The color is limited edition and it was released in Posh paradise collection. I bought Bare Sturdy paint pot too, more about…
