Hello my looooves <3

I hope you have all had a lovely easter day yesterday! On Sunday I went to my dads house and I got to search my chocolate in the garden! (I got way too excited about this for my age haha) Then we went to have a meal in an Italian Restaurant where I decided to go for a pizza, I haven't eaten Pizza in months! I feel like everyone around the Internet is obsessed with Pizza but I'm more like a Burger person I think :)

Anyway, today we had my mums family over and got some chocolate again and ate some cake & instead of being social I am typing this blogpost haha :) Tomorrow in a week I am going to have my final maths exam & you guys have no idea how nervous I am. I am beyond terrible in maths and I don't have the slightest clue how I am meant to pass, but yeah. 

On the picture above I am wearing my current favourite lip products which I got in the Glossybox (I still have to publish the post about it). It is a very pale pink but over my UD Streak Lipstick it looks really nice, I think. It is called Eternal Shine Lip Glaze* from a brand called JCats in the shade 130. I wouldn't usually buy a colour like this so I actually was quite glad that I got it and use something out of my comfort zone :)

I hope you've all had a lovely easter weekend and got lots of chocolate :) xx

The blondie becomes a brownie

9 Comments | Please leave me a comment :)

These days consist mainly of studying maths, but today I finally wanted to apply the hair colour that I have bought the other day. I chose a medium brown one from Schwarzkopf, it was a bit risky as it looked quite dark & I have been really upset about too dark hair in the past, but I still wanted to give it a go again. At first I was shocked by how dark it look in a wet state but it looks a lot better when it's dry (obviously haha). I actually really like the outcome and I prefer it a lot to my previous blondish colour, I think it is a good contrast to my rather pale skin. 

As it is currently very rainy in Austria I got the chance to wear my new Primark Rain Parka, which I love! It comes as a pocket but then you kind of unfold it unto a jacket, such a clever idea! But I will film a Haul in the next few weeks so I can show you more of that then :)

Have a lovely evening and enjoy the weather if it's nice where you are! :) xx

Vienna Calling

5 Comments | Please leave me a comment :)

 I am a very mature 19 year old.  

Sorry, I couldn't think of a better title, actually this isn't even appropriate as I already am in Vienna, but oh well. So yesterday Ivana (who you might already know) came to visit me again & we went to take pictures, had a cookie and a drink at Starbucks & went to some shops (obviously haha). 

I would love to make a Haul on YouTube including all of the things I have recently bought, because there are a lot of things, but I have my written exams in 2 weeks so I don't know how to fit filming in my studying schedule, but if anyone actually wants to see a Haul, I might be able to do that after I have written my Maths exam.

I hope you are all going to have lovely easter holidays as I won't haha (I will be studying integral, geometry and imaginary numbers yay) <3

Dior Glow Maximizer Light Boosting Primer

2 Comments | Please leave me a comment :)

A while back I spotted this gorgeous Dior Glow Maximizer Light Boosting Primer on Hello-October and instantly fell in love with what it looked like. My skin is always very dull and sometimes I feel like it looks a bit dirty because of the uncountable amount of blackheads I have, and especially in the Spring/Summer season, dull skin is a no for me. When I read how much this Dior Primer costs, I had to accept the fact that I won't be able to purchase this anytime soon, because with a price tag of 41€ it is definitely on the expensive side. On thursday however, Woman's shopping day (Woman is a magazine in Austria) came around and the shop that stocks Dior products offered a 20% discount on all of their products, and as I still had a voucher worth a few Euros I went to purchase a primer and got an overall discount of 15 €. 

The primer comes in a tube but has a pump which I found kind of odd, but really practical as well (It took me a while to figure out that I don't have to squeeze the tube but press down the pump). The product comes out in a kind of rosey, but really glowy shade and it worked wonders on my skin. I wore it with my Nars Sheer Glow Foundation (Review) and I think If I had a foundation that I loved more, my skin would look even better, but this Primer changed the look of it a lot. 

I adore the finish of this Primer, in my opinion it gives the perfect glow. I am pretty sure that this would work as a highlighter too, but right now I will only use this as a Primer as I have a highlighter that I am quite happy with.

Have a lovely sunday :) x

Nars Sheer Glow: a rather disappointing foundation :(

5 Comments | Please leave me a comment :)

So about three weeks ago I decided to order the Nars Sheer Glow Foundation in the shade Siberia, because I researched a little on the internet and found out that this is a very neutral looking, light shade, which was exactly what I was looking for.  It was a kind of risky purchase as we do not have Nars in Austria so I had to order it online, but I knew that I was the lightest shade as even MAC Matchmaster 1.0 and Pro Longwear NC15 are too dark for me. 

When the foundation arrived, I was amazed by how well the shade suits my skin, it really is the perfect shade and didn't produce a line above my throat. The consistency however was not what I expected at all. The foundation claims to even out your skin tone and promises to leave your skin hydrated and glowy. When I first applied it, I felt like it was really wet looking and it just didn't feel like skin, it felt like I had a layer of liquid on my face which is not a good feeling at all. Also, I feel like this foundation doesn't last long at all! I tried it with and without my Porefessional Primer but in both cases it just disappeared off my face and even when I lightly touched my face, I was left with an oily film of foundation on my finger & had an obvious finger print on my face, not pretty. What I also noticed is that when I applied it with my flat brush (I tried it with my RT buffing brush before) you could really see the strokes which I found really annoying. As I mentioned above, it claims to hydrate the skin, but in my case (and I don't have particularly dry skin) it just clung to all the little dry patches and accentuated them so they were really obvious.

All in all, I don not have anything positive to say about this foundation, apart from the shade. I really wanted to love this product after the uncountable amount of good reviews that I've read and the 40€ that I had to spend, but it simply disappointed me.

So as I am now stuck with foundations that are too dark for me & one that's consistency I don't like I have a question for you all; does anyone know of a foundation or a BB cream that is suitable for very pale skin? I feel like every hunt for a good skin match has been unsuccessful so far & I am already so scared of splurging on foundations, as I have already wasted so much money on them. I would really appreciate your help! 

The other two products that I have recently picked up are a highlighter stick from P2 (I have been looking for a product like that for AGES!) and a lipliner from P2. I love the highlighter, it's a little bit shimmery but I don't really mind that in the warmer season and it's really easy to apply! I haven't really used the lipliner yet, as I still need to work out how to use a lipliner properly (It's my first one haha)

Okay, If you've come to the end of this post I congratulate you! Have a lovely evening :) xx

Some 'cheer me up' purchases :)

2 Comments | Please leave me a comment :)

Yesterday I thought I'd buy me some new make up items to cheer me up from the Maths exam that I have probably failed. I have seen several posts from German bloggers that got sent some Essence products (Essence is a brand that you could probably compare to MUA price wise, they just have a much larger variety of products I think) and I found the new collection so pretty that I had to have a look at it in the shop. The collection is so big that they have actually added another stand in my local drugstore. 

From Essence I picked up a little palette with some quite shimmery, neutral spring colours. Essence was probably the first brand I have ever used in my entire life and I have not worn their make up in a couple of years, so I am quite excited to try these eyeshadows. As you can see by the swatches, the colours are all really pigmented! I also picked up a pastel green/blueish nail polish which I was a little disappointed with because it basically looks like a clear varnish when you put it on which is such a shame because the colour looks stunning in the bottle! The last thing I picked up from this brand where some deo wipes (is that odd? haha) which probably come in really handy on plane journeys (I am not flying anywhere soon though :( )

Better late than never I jumped on the bandwagon and bought me a tangle teezer! I have been considering buying one of them since I have been in England for a year (which is two years ago now, craaaazy!) but I never really wanted to spend that amount of money on it, but it's payday today, so....

The last thing I picked up was the L'oréal Super Liner Perfect Slim which I have seen on Suzies blog & eyeliner video and she made the application look so easy, so I picked it hope, because I am rubbish at doing a decent looking eyeliner. Hopefully this helps me a little! 

Also I want to apologise that I hardly ever blog anymore, but school is literally so stressful right now, I have the first part of my final exams in a months time (feel free to wish me luck) and I have to write essay and study loads :( 

Anyway, have a lovely Friday (or whatever day it is you are reading that) <3

Primark bits and bobs

13 Comments | Please leave me a comment :)

When I was in Primark yesterday I was mainly looking for some summer sandals and found some lovely pairs, but on my feet they didn't look quite as nice as I wanted them to, so I had a look around the rest of the shop and found some lovely little things that I wanted to share with you!

When I had a look around the new PS love beauty range section I spotted this lovely pair of spotted tweezers. I have been looking for a new pair but usual tweezers don't really appeal to me, so I just had to pick this cute pair for about 3€ up. Other than that I also found a little kit that contains tweezers, a pair of nail scissors, a nail clip and a file. This kit for 2.50 will be a lovely new addition to my handbag :)

Next, I went into the pyjama section. I usually buy my pyjamas from Primark as I think they have the lovliest designs for very reasonable prices. And I know this is very cliché-y but I hate it when my pyjamas have a wide end so the go up my leg when I'm sleeping hence I was very happy when I found some with a cuffed leg. 

In the accessory department I spotted a lovely little flower hairband which I think will look very cute in a bun & a floral crown which I will probably not even wear, but it looked lovely so it went in my basket straight away :)

Last but not least I found these really cute socks which are made of a really odd material but their patterns are just so cool! I picked up one with a picture of London (duh) and one with donuts which was just the cutest thing ever!

Have you been to Primark lately? Did up pick up something nice? :) x
