These are my dream make-up brushes!

Someday these make-up brushes will be mine. I rather buy expensive brushes, because then you can be using them forever, really. I'm aware about that expensive brushes doesn't have to be better than cheap ones, but I'm rather investing in buying expensive brushes than cheap ones. If you wonder why there's no foundation brush included, it's because I already own an amazing one from Lancôme!:) These are the names of the brushes...

1: MAC 210 Eye Liner Brush. 2: MAC 150 Large Powder Brush. 3: MAC 116 Blush Brush. 4: MAC 239 Eye Shader Brush. 5: MAC 204 Lash Brush. 6: MAC 316 Lip Brush. 7: MAC 168 Large Angled Contour Brush. 8: MAC 195 Concealer Brush. 9: MAC 208 Angled Brow Brush. 10: MAC 217 Blending Brush.

New lipstick in ''Prairie'' from Makeupstore!

So this is what I bought for a while ago from Makeupstore (remember the last post that I wrote?). I'm very familiar with the products from Makeupstore, I can basically promise that anything from their supply is awesome. I've atleast 10 things from that store and non of them have made me disappointed. This is a sheer lipstick and the colour is called ''Prairie''. It's kind of a peachy colour and I really love it. It's not how it looks like in the pictures though. It's more orange IRL actually and the second picture is actually the most unfair of the two of them. However, I love this lipstick and it will look AMAZING in the summer! Just let me know if you would like to see how it looks on.

Chloé Signature Eau De Parfume

This is a perfume that I've wanted to have for MONTHS! It's called ''Chloé Signature Eau De Parfume'' and it's soooo freaking amazing (!). This is seriously the best fragrance that I've ever smelled. It really smells sucess, wealthyness and femininity. The top notes are classical roses and other smells like ambra, cedar and airy sweetness. This perfume I'm going to buy in the end of June (I know unfortunately mant months left!), when I'm going abroad, because then it won't be any extra taxes on this fragrance.

Looking for good blothing products like me?

I've been looking for make-up brands that sells blothing products for a very long time now(!). The make-up market is so freaking big now that it's hard to just choose one product when there are like 10 more identical products like it. However, I suppose I'm not the only person who's looking for a product that provides sheer(?), and that's why I'm doing this post!
1: Smashbox Anti Shine Compact- is a compact product that contains a mirror and touch-ups for the day.
2: Makeupstore Blothing Powder. This is a powder that I've actually heard very good things about. You're applying this invisible powder during the day when you feel like you're having shiny areas in your face.
3: Makeupstore T-zone, which is a liquid product that I assume is ideal for applying with your bare fingers where you want to make your face more unshiny, like your T-zone.
4: Dior Long Lasting Setting Powder, is an invisible powder that you're applying after your foundation to provide shiny areas in your face.
5: Mac Blot Film, contains blothing papers.
6: Clinique Stay-Matte Sheer Pressed Powder, is a powder that's actually not invisible. It's suitable for a more greasy skin, and this will give your skin a very matte-look that will last for many hours.
7: Makeupstore Oil Blothing Paper is the cheapest product of them all. This is like the Chanel's Oil Control Tissues but much more cheap. I've to admit that Chanel's tissues looks a lot more chic than Makeupstore's but I don't think that it's really any difference between the two products (except from the price).
8: Chanel Natural Finish Loose Powder- is more a finish powder that you're applying after your foundation to create a matte finish. But I guess it's a product that's very identical to the blothing products. This provides sheer and as I said it gives your skin a matte finish.
9: Smashbox Photo Set Finishing Powder SPF 15 is a loose powder that you're applying after your foundation so your make-up will last for many more hours. This is an invisible powder. The Photo Set Finishing Powder doesn't just give your make-up a longer stay-on it also gives it a more matte look. It's oil-absorbing, so your skin won't look shiny if you're using this. It's an all-in-one powder!
10: Chanel Oil Control Tissues. This is a product for the one who wants to have touch-ups during the day. The blothing papers creates the perfect mattness and removes all the shine from your face.

Lancôme Ultra Lavande: Spring 2011 Color Collection

I really really really like this new collection (I would rather call it the precense collection, just because the collection has been available for a quite long time now!) Ultra Lavande: Spring 2011 Color Collection from Lancôme. I've always been into lilac eyeshadows or pink/lilac lipsticks because it looks so fresh! I mean look at the second picture. Do you see how awake she looks in that lilac eyeshadow? Her eyes are glowing, she looks sooo fresh!

And the blush at the first picture- it's absolutely fantastic! I tried it at a store and I wish I could show you how it looks like on your skin. You should really go to your nearest store so you could see how amazing it is. If you unfortunately doesn't have to opportunity to live nearby a store that sells this product- then take a look at THIS blog! As I said, I find this collection as an amazing one!

Review of Make up store's ''Cover all Mix'' concealer

A few months ago I bought a concealer from Make up store, because my friend recommended it. Make up store, is my absolute favourite store of all time, as I've told you many times before:). So I thought why not?, because back at that time i actually hadn't had a good concealer. Anyway, my first impression of the concealer is that the packaging was looking great. I really like the modern look of it, and even though if all of Make up store's products basically has the same appearances. The product has a lid that you're twirling up in circularly movements. I found that very good, because it's basically important to open the lid by mistake.

However, back to the product's containments. The concealer contains three different colours and all of them are ideal for particularly spots in your face. The yellow one neutralizes read parts in your face, like shallow blood-vessels and blotches for example. The orange/pink one neatralizes blue tones in your face, like beneath your eyes, and the beige one is good for highlighting (like beneath your eyebrow) and it's also good for a base on your eyelids. I'm usually mixing the orange/pink and the beige ones together, because I prefer that colour than the orange one. But that's just my personal opinion.

(At piture 2, I've applied the concealer with a brush. Do you see the difference?)

For the first couple of month I applied this with my bare hands and I found the product- just fine. I wasn't as excited about the result the product gave me as my friend was. Why? Well, the product didn't really cover as much as I was hoping for. It felt like the concealer only fastened beside the pimples or the areas that I really needed to cover. It was like the concealer didn't wanted to get stucked where I really wanted it to, and it was soooo annoying, seriously.
So when I almost gave up, an idea popped up in my mind. What if i bought a concealer brush(?!), would that help or not? After some research, I decided to buy a concealer brush from Make up store. I bought a brush called ''Synthetic E/S brush- large (206)''. And I'm not exaggerating when I'm saying how much better that product became. All of a sudden, all of the areas that I wanted to get covered- got covered. I was so happy that this product finally was working out for me. This was seriously the best product- of all time!!

With a concealer brush it gives you the perfect coverage and it's just a lovely product. It doesn't feel like just a thick layer of something, it feels like a smooth product on your skin that really suits in. The only area where I find the product- not as good as the other areas, is beneath your eyes (the area where you're using the orange/pink colour). It actually feels like the product is just a liiiiittle too thick when you're using it there. Although, it's a great product as I've said and I really do recommend you all to buy it. I don't ever think I'll be able to find a concealer in that class. The only negative things about it is that you really need to have a concealer brush to have a good coverage (a concealer brush= extra money you need to spend) and also that the concealer doesn't work as good beneath your eyes.

I give this product:
