Review: Evelyn Iona Natural & Organic Lip Gloss | Lise

Hi loves! I have been loving Evelyn Iona Natural & Organic Lip Gloss in shade Lise ($21). I got it in a Style Tone box and I love the ingredients in it are natural and organic. Every item you buy from the brand $1 will be donated to YWCA Canada. Here is the link to their main page, if you wanna check it out. Also all their products are cruelty free.

The gloss comes in a clear tube and has a very standard applicator. It glides on easily and it has a sweet vanilla scent to it, which I love. I love all the ingredients in it are eatable, so I can just eat it up if I want :) It contains ingredients like bark extract, which tightens and plumps the lips and I have to say my lips do look lusher whenever I have worn this gloss. Also contains oregano, which acts as antioxidant, vitamin E is natural moisturizer. Coconut oil helps with signs of aging and shea butter helps the skin with healing and improves the look.

The shades I got in the Style Tone box is Lise and its beautiful! Its a pinky nude shade with golden flakes in it. It looks gorgeous all over the lips and pair it with a bronze eye look, even more. Its perfect shade for summer and I just like to wear it on its own. Its quit pigmented for a gloss and I like the formula of it is not sticky. It glides on lips easily and makes my lips look bigger and lusher. I'm so impressed with it and I know its going to be most worn gloss this summer :)

The staying power is typical for a gloss. It does stay on through out drinks, but does lose some of the shine. It comes completely off after having food. I don't mind the reapplying, because its so effortless.

I'm so impressed with the gloss! Unfortunately their products are not available in Europe. They do deliver to USA, Canada and Australia (link). This gloss is available on Style Tone webshop, if you are interested I'll link it here

Have you heard of this gloss before?

Review: Organic Shop Organic Coffee & Sugar Body Scrub

Hi loves! Like promised this week I'll post one extra post, which is today's and I have review on Organic Shop Organic Coffee & Sugar Body Scrub (250ml, 6,35 EUR).

The scrub comes in a plastic jar and I need to scoop out the product. The formula contains 99.54% ingredients from natural origins and is free off SLS, parabens and silicones. The scrub feels thick and does a great job scrubbing all the dead skin cells off. It also contains organic coffee oil and natural sugar.

Its recommended to use 2 to 3 times a week. I use it on shower and massage it with circular motion on my skin. It leaves it soft and hydrated. Only thing I don't like so much is the scent. Its a coffee scent but some reason I don't like it. It just doesn't smell like freshly made coffee, which is the best smell in the world.

I love how it makes my skin feel and it is affordable, but I don't think I'll be repurchasing it, because of the scent. It's just my personal feelings. If you are still interested in this scrub and wanna check it out, I'll link it here.

Have you tried the brand before?

Review: Ontic Minerals Mineral Eyeshadow | Champagne Sparkles, I Insist!

Hi loves! Sorry for missing last week's post, but I'll post next week 2 posts. This week I have review on Ontic Minerals Mineral Eyeshadows in shade Champagne Sparkles, I Insist! (9.95 EUR). Their shadows are 100% natural and these two shades where sent to me with their glitters, which you can check out here

The formula of the shadows is silky to the touch and these are waterproof. These can be used dry or wet and the formula contains jojoba oil, which conditions and hydrates the delicate skin. There is no scent to these and its easy to remove with makeup remover.

Down below you can see swatches of both shades and these are so pigmented. I did swatch these dry, but I do like to apply these with wet brush. Its easy to work with these and they also work well with other powder shadows. I have two more shadows from them, which I bought myself and you can check the review on these out here.

  • E07 I insist! - is a pale green with golden glitter in it. It looks beautiful all over the lid. I like to use it whenever I do smokey eye in deeper greens.
  • E36 Champagne Sparkles - is shimmery champagne shade, which looks beautiful all over the lid and I also have used it in the inner corner of the eye.

I love these new shades and I'm happy to have them in my collection. I definetly wanna add more shades to my collection, which I'll do when I go to Estonia in May. You can check out their full eyeshadow range here.

Do you like mineral makeup?

Review: Naobay Renewal Argan Oil

Hi loves! Today's post is on wonderful beauty oil from Naobay and its their Renewal Argan Oil (30ml, 29.95 EUR). I picked it up in Estonia (store called I.L.U), but its also available on Amazon (Germany, link).

This beauty oil comes in a glass bottle and has a dropper, which makes application easier. 

Argan oil contains 80% essential fatty acids. 45% of oleic acids and 35% of linoleic acids with high amount of vitamin E. The oil helps to fight against wrinkles, providing skin elasticity and also providing hydration to the skin. All the ingredients in this beauty oil are from natural origins.

I use this oil every evening as a last step in my skincare routine. It can also be mixed into night/day cream. If you have dry skin, it also good to add few drops of facial oil in your foundation. This would not work for me as I do have oily skin. I like to use oils in the evenings. After I have applied my night cream, I apply 3 drops of it to my face and massage it in. I also use it on my neck. 

It sinks into the skin fast, but it does make my skin feel oily in the beginning. The oil has a natural scent to it and the formula of it feels light weight. In the morning my skin is not at all oily. It leaves it so soft, smooth and so much brighter. Before I stayed away from oils, but they really do make a huge difference in my skin. It nourishes the skin throughly when I sleep and helps to keep it soft and bright the next day.

I'm so happy I picked this oil up! It has been wonderful to my skin and I'm happy to have it in my face oil collection. 

Which is your favorite facial oil?

Review: Aïcha Argan Skin Therapy Eye Serum

Hi loves! I missed last week's post, so you get it today :) I have been testing out for months now Aïcha Argan Skin Therapy Eye Serum (15ml, 27.95 EUR, link)

The eye serum is a blend of 100% organic oils and its easy to apply under eye area, because it does come with roller ball applicator. The formula is rich with nutrients, antioxidants and has free radical properties. There is no scent to it and it sinks into the skin instantly. 

I have been using it months now and its the only thing, which has helped me with the dryness under my eye area and also above the crease, I had some dry patches there. I use it morning and evening, after applying my eye cream (because it is a oil). It took care of the dry patches and I don't have the dryness there any more. Also my concealer applies better and my under eye area doesn't look dry and the fine lines under my eye are gone.

I love how the roller ball cools and massage the under eye area and helps to apply right amount of product and I also feel it sinks into the skin better with it.

I have been loving this gem and I also love the brand. I did post few months ago where I shared my favorite items from the brand, if you are interested I'll leave it here. The link where to buy the Aïcha Argan Skin Therapy Eye Serum is on top of the post.

Have you tried anything from the brand?
