Review: Ontic Minerals Mineral Eyeshadow | Mamma Cholly, Best Friends Forever

Hi loves! I have been obsessing over Ontic Minerals eyeshadows so much and have worked at least one of the shadows in my every eye look. I have two shade E24 Mamma Cholly and E38 Best Friends Forever (9.95).

The shadows comes in a little jars and have shifter on it, which doesn't let the product come out. These are surprisingly fuss free to use. 

These are both so pigmented and shimmery. These work well together with other powder eyeshadows and on me these lasted so long without fading or loosing the color (I always wear eyeshadow primer under any eye look I do). 

  • E24 Mamma Cholly - is a red brown eye shadow with hint of orange peachiness to it. Its not too shimmery shadow, but there is gold glitter in it. I love using it in the crease.
  • E38 Best Friends Forever - is a cream shade shadow with golden sheen to it. I love using it in the inner corner of the eye. Its so pretty shade!

These have been amazing shadows and down below you can see an eye look I did using both of the shades. I use the darker one E24 in the crease and the E38 to highlight the inner corner of the eye.

I'm so obsessed with these shadows and I can't wait to pick up more from them. If you missed the previous review I did on their highlighter, I'll link it here. Its also amazing ;)

You can check out their full eye shadow selection here and if you are in Estonia, you can also place an order there.

Review: Starskin VIP The Gold Revitalizing Luxury Bio Cellulose Second Skin Face Mask

Hi loves! How are you all doing? Last week I posted a little beauty haul, if you haven't seen it I'll link it here. Today I have a Starskin The Gold Revitalizing Luxury Bio Cellulose Second Skin Face Mask (30ml,  £12.50) review. Its a sheet mask, which promises to revitalize and refresh the skin. Its made in Korea.

The mask is one time use only and contains 30 ml serum, so the mask is richly covered with the serum. It contains Ginkogo, Evening Primrose and Kuzu Root, which helps to smooth and hydrate the skin. Avocado Oil also provides moisture and deeply nourishes the skin. Its suitable for all skin types, but beauties with dry skin will specially like it, because it contains Fermented Coconut Juice, which instantly hydrates dry skin.  

Before using the mask I cleansed my skin and used a toner. After that I applied it on the skin. The mask comes between two sheets, because it is very thin. It makes applying the mask so much easier. I kept it on 20 minutes, but you can keep it 15 minutes as well.

After that I removed the mask and pat in the extra serum left on my skin. I continued with my skincare routine and applied my day cream. I did notice my skin was sticky after removing the mask and after applying the day cream. It took some time for the sticky feeling to go away.  

The mask is perfect for everyone who wants some nourishment to their skin. Its so hydrating and my skin felt so nourished, smooth and plumped after using it. It feels like my skin was starving before I used this mask. It makes my skin feel so nice like I drink 2 liters of water everyday. 

On the picture below you can see before and after pictures. You can really see how well it brightened my skin tone :)

I'm so happy I picked it up! I just can't believe how long I took me to put it on the test. Its a perfect pamper item and something I definetly repurchase, because winter is coming ;)

If you are interested its available on Beauty bay and they do deliver all over the world. I'll link it here.

Beauty Haul: Ontic Minerals, Joik, balance me

Hi loves! This week I have for you little haul, which contains bit of makeup and body care items :) When I visited Estonia, I did ended up getting some mineral makeup from brand called Ontic Minerals. I loved the highlighter from them so much (review), that I wanted to try more. So first I picked up their Mineral Blush in shade P04 Girls Powder (3 g). The shade of it looks so pretty and is perfect for pale skin tone, like mine (the swatches of everything is down below).

Then I did got two of their Mineral Eyeshadows and I picked up shades E24 Mamma Cholly and E38 Best Friends Forever (2 g). Mineral eyeshadow can be sometimes messy to use, but there is something about it. I feel mineral makeup always offers more interesting shades, when it comes to eyeshadow. The first shade I picked up is E24 and its warm red orange shade, which will be perfect for this time of the year. The other eyeshadow, E38  is almost white, but more to the cream side and has beautiful golden sheen to it.

R to L: Eye shadow shades E38, E24, Mineral Veil, Mineral Blush

The last item I got from them is their Mineral Veil and its in shade R2 Translucent (6 g). Its a setting powder and it does have some sheen to it, so It would be perfect for setting my under eye area. On the swatch I build it up a lot, so you guys would be able to see how it looks. 

I also got Joik Citrus Bath Truffles (310 g), which where in my wishlist, I'll link it here, if you haven't seen it yet. I was thinking these would smell more citrus, but the scent of it is not strong at all, which in away is better I guess. I bet the scent of it comes out more, once I use it in my bath water. 

The last item in this haul is something I picked up in TK Maxx and its balance me Super Moisturising Body Wash (200 ml). I was sold on the moisturizing part, because this time of the year my skin is getting dryer and hot shower is not helping either, so using more hydrating body wash seems the way to go and 99% ingredients in it are natural.  

This is it for this haul :) Have you guys tried any of these products before? If you have, let me know in the comments how you liked these. Also there is a giveaway going on my other blog, which you can check out here

Review: Seraphine Botanicals Rose Cheeks

Hi loves! In August Style Tone box I got Seraphine Botanicals Rose Cheeks (10 ml, $20.00), which can be used on the cheeks and also on the lips. If you don't follow my other blog and haven't seen that post, you can check out the unboxing post of Style Tone box here.

The tint comes in a squeeze tube and is easy to get out as much as I need. With this a little bit does go along way, so I don't need to squeeze out too much product.

It contains 95% ingredients natural origins and is formulated with watermelon seed oil and ylang-ylang oil. It provides natural flush to the cheeks, which stayed on me all day. I absolutely love the gel texture of it and its not tested on animals. The formula is also vegan and GMO free.

It feels so light weight and its easy to blend out. I like I don't need much and I like the shade of it. Its leaves my cheeks with healthy flush, which I would get being outside on cold winter day. 

I also tried it out on lips, but it didn't last that long on my lips. It did felt hydrating on lips, which surprised me, as tints hardly ever feel hydrating. It also gives really nice rosy color to the lips.

It does contain fragrance and has a lovely rosy scent to it. I only smell it when I put my nose really close to the tube. Other then that I don't smell it. It hasn't caused me to brake out or irritated my skin.

I'm so happy I ended up getting this tint in the Style Tone box and its so fuss free to use and it stays on my cheeks all day.

If you are interested in this gem, you can check it out here.

Which is your favorite tint?

Review: Olivolio Botanics Donkey Milk Extra moisturizing Body Butter

Hi loves! The colder weather is here and I'm all about body butters. I have dry skin (except my face) and I need all the hydration I can get. I have been loving Olivolio Botanics Donkey Milk Extra moisturizing Body Butter (250 ml, 14.90 EUR) and I got it when I was in Greece. You can read that post here.

The body butter comes in a chubby jar and the formula of it is very thick. I always want to see everything in packaging, which allows me to pump the product out, but in this case it wouldn't be possible. This body butter is way too thick for the pump. 

Its rich with vitamins A, B, C, D and E, its a great anti-aging treatment. This body butter hydrates, regenerates and renews the skin. Its not tested on animals and is free of mineral oils, parabens and is made in Grease.

Like I mentioned before the formula is very thick and it takes sometime to skin into the skin. It doesn't take too long time though. I like how light it feels, like its wiped. It instantly hydrates my skin and leaves my skin soft and smooth. There is no sticky feel to it once it sinks into the skin. I feel like it makes my skin also feel thither and I feel like my skin doesn't get so fast dry as it does with other body butters I have used in the past.

I have really fell in love with this product. I love the wiped formula and how well it hydrates my skin. It has been absolute pleasure to use. I was worried, if I can find it here, but i did manage to find the page where they ship all over the world. You can find it here.
