Review: Le'Maagi Highlighting Powders

Hi loves! In my latest wish list post (link) I talked about Le'Maagi Highlighting Powders and how much I wanna try all the shades out and now I have them :) The shades are Champagne Club, Beach Gil and City of Angles (2.3g, 16.99 EUR).

These come in little compacts and inside there is the powder and a mirror. I like there is no wasted space and the outside packaging looks simple and stylish, only the brand name on the lid. I would have liked the shade name been printed back, not written by hand.

The powders feel buttery to the touch and can be used with or without a brush. Its easy to blend them out with fingertips. I personally like to use a brush.

These shade are gorgeous and I have made it them all work for me. These don't contain any nasty ingredients like talc, synthetical colorants or fragrances and preservatives. 

These can be build up to blinding highlight, so I recommend using light hand when you try them out the first time. These are insanely pigmented and easy to blend out. 

On the left you can see the swatches of all 3 shades. I like the most Champagne Club as it looks most flattering on my skin color. I like to use the other 2 when I go for more bronze look. On cheek bones they all look beautiful mixed together with other powders, but the deeper shades don't look best on the bridge of the nose. I could pull it off when I would have more tan going on. City of Angels would look beautiful on medium skin tone. 

The staying powder of these is amazing! This gives me a glow that lasts all day and even my oily skin can't eat it up ;)

Ingredients: Mica(CI77019), Titanium dioxide(CI77891), Kaolinite(kaolin clay), Copernicia Cerifera(Carnauba wax), Simmondsia Chinensis seed oil(Jojoba oil), Iron oxide(CI77491,CI77492), Tin oxide(CI77861) 

I do love these and I like they don't contain any nasty ingredients. I can use it and be sure it doesn't make me brake out or cause allergic reaction. If you are base in Estonia you can get these beauties from Pillerkaar (link) and the rest of the world can buy these on the brands Facebook page (link).

Have you tried these before?

Review: Bellápierre Mineral Lipstick | Burlesque, Couture

Hi loves! Today I share with you Bellápierre Mineral Lipsticks in shade Burlesque and Couture (3.5g, $20.00).

The lipstick comes in a black tube. I like the shape of their tubes, because I can put them upside down and they stay. The reason I do it is that I would be able to see the shade, which is marked bottom of the lipstick tube.

Their lipsticks are formulated with natural waxes, pigments, iron oxides and antioxidants like vitamin C and E. These are 100% natural lipsticks, which are pigmented and the formula is cream.

These glide on easily and feel comfortable on lips. As you can see on the picture (left), the darker shade likes to grab on to everything. Its not easy shade to wear in winter, because my lips are not as smooth and this color just grabs on to every thing. I definetly need to scrub my lips before applying it and do lip mask. I have to pull all my beauty tricks out to makes this shade look beautiful on my lips.

  • Couture - is a deep berry red with lilac sheen to it. Its unique shade and thats why I want to make it work.
  • Burlesque - is dark pinky red shade. Perfect to brighten up any makeup look.

These do last better on my lips then other creamy lipsticks. Its not going to be as long lasting as liquid lipstick or matte lipstick. Its also not as drying. Its comfortable formula and it doesn't makeup my lips chapped.

Overall I'm happy with these new lipsticks in my collection. I love how they look and feel on lips, and I don't mind I have to work bit harder with one of the shades. If you wanna check these out for yourself I'll link them here. There is all together 14 shades to pick from.

Which is your favorite lipstick formula?

Review: Ingli Pai Rosewater

Hi loves! By now you guys know how obsessed I'm with rosewater and I wanna try them all :) I have been testing out Ingli Pai Rosewater (100ml, 6.10 EUR). 

If this is a new brand to you. Ingli Pai is Estonian beauty brand, which makes 100% natural beauty products. I have reviewed one of their toners one the blog before (link).

The Rosewater comes in a glass bottle and has sprayer, which gives out even mist. Its with out any alcohol and its 100% natural. The ingredients list contains only 3 items: Aqua, Rose Damascena, Anthemis Nobilis. This claims not to irritate or dry out the skin.

I picked it up when I was in Estonia last time and have used it 2 week now. I use it morning and evening. Before applying it I do shake it. Its my first step in the skincare routine. I used before Joik rose water (review), but I finished it and wanted to try something new. So I went with this one. 

I just like to spray it all over my face and it refreshens the skin and hydrates it. My skin feels so nice after it and ready for the nest step in my skincare routine.

It can be used to cleanse the skin as well. In that case I would spray it on a cotton pad and swipe it over my face to get off all the dirt and oiliness.  

I think in the future I would buy this over the Joik one, because the price is better and I get more product.

I would recommend it everyone. Its a gentle toner and I love how it makes my skin look. I don't think you can get it in west of Europe. I found it here and they do deliver to Baltic and also to Finland. 

Do you like to use rosewater as your toner?

Review: Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm

Hi loves! This winter my lips where saved by Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm (10 EUR, 15ml). 79.5% of the ingredients are natural origins and it doesn't contain any parabens.

The lip balm comes in a glass jar and the formula of it is like butter, very thick. The Reve de Miel skincare range was created 20 years ago and the special ingredient in it is honey, which is perfect for dry skin.

I have to say its the most nourishing lip balm I have ever used. It makes my lips from the first use soft and prevents me getting chapped lips. I can feel how hydrating it is and the feeling stays all day. I need to apply it only twice a day, morning and evening. That guarantees my lips are always smooth and hydrated, even though I wear liquid lipsticks daily. Another thing I love about this product is the delicate citrus scent it has, its so yummy and refreshing. It makes me wanna taste it!

Before I tried this I loved my Sensai lip treatment, but I have found I prefer the Nuxe lip balm. It does a better job keeping my lips soft and hydrated and on Sephora its 10 euros. The Sensai lip treatment is almost 100 euros.

I think I'm the last person to try this, but if you are like me and haven't tried it, its worth checking out. Its one of the most amazing things I have discovered this year.

I'll leave a link to the lip balm here. I didn't find it on Sephora France, so I left link to Cult Beauty.

Review: Hoia Lemongrass Bodyscrub

Hi loves! I have been obsessing over a body scrub and I know its not the most glamorous thing in the world, but this one is brilliant. I have been using non stop Hoia Lemongrass Bodyscrub (75ml). The full size is 200ml and is 12.90 euros. 

If Hoia is not familiar brand to you, its Estonian beauty brand and they make handmade, 100% natural and cruelty free beauty products. 

The scrub comes in a little tub, which is plastic. The first thing I noticed when opening it up is the lovely lemongrass scent. Its one of my favorite scents in body care products. I love how refreshing it is. 

The formula of the scrub is thicker and I feel with this type of scrubs all the dead skin cells come off. It contains shea butter and cocoa oil, which provide the hydration to the skin.

I like to use it all over the body. It does a great job getting all the dead skin cells off my skin and leaves it smooth and hydrated. I don't need to use a body lotion after using this scrub. That's why I love it so much. It makes it smooth and at the same time it nourishes the skin. Another plus of this scrub is that it makes your bathroom smell like lemongrass (and its strong) and its another reason I love it. I'm all about aromatic therapy and this scrub gives me the spa experience. 

I'm all about these kind of sugar scrubs and I get the results I want with these. The only thing with natural beauty products is that you need to use it up fast, because the shelf life of it is only 6 months. I usually get one at the time and use it up and then pick up another one. If you are interested you can check it out here. I highly recommend it if you are looking for a new body scrub.

What type of body scrubs do you like?

Review: Nature Republic Aqua Super AquaMax Cream

Hi loves! I have been testing out Kbeauty brand Nature Republic. Its my fist time trying their products and I have been testing out their Aqua Super Aqua Max Cream (80ml, 8.64 EUR). Before jumping into this review I wanna let you know I have oily skin type and my skin is not sensitive.

It comes in a super cute packaging! I love the  green jar ( which is glass) its in and the cap of it makes it the cutest thing ever. The cap looks like the the cream inside (water gel). The formula of the cream is like a gel, which sinks into the skin effortlessly. It feels very refreshing and cooling on skin. It protects the skin from external environment by forming a moisture film over the skin. Hyaluronic acid helps to keep the skin moisture levels up longer.

I use it as a last step in my skincare routine. Its my morning moisturizer. You can see my morning skincare routine here, if you are interested. It sinks into the skin instantly and keeps me hydrated all day. The only thing that bothers me about this cream is the fragrance in it. Its so heavily fragranced! I would prefer something bit less or it to be totally fragrance free. I wouldn't recommend this cream for people who have sensitive skin type. 

You can find the full ingredient list and the product itself here

Overall I'm happy with this cream. It keeps me hydrated all day and doesn't feel heavy. I also love the refreshing feeling it gives my skin. I also wakes me up in the morning :) 

Do you like this type of creams?
