GOLDEN ROSE SOFT&MATTE LIPSTICK REVIEW


I had my eye on these lipsticks ever since they were announced and it's no surprise that they ended up in my collection. The promise of a creamy non-drying matte won me over and that's why I got 3 colours to try out.

I wanna mention the packaging first - it's the same as the liquid mattes, but these ones have a rose gold cap, which I definitely prefer. The applicator is also the same elongated and flat doe foot (is that a good way to describe it) and the application of the products is easy.
~
Бях хвърлила око на тези червила още откакто бяха представени и не е изненадващо, че се озоваха в колекцията ми. Обещанието за кремообразен неизсушаващ матов завършек ме спечели и затова си взех 3 цвята.

Искам първо да обърна внимание на опаковката - същата е като на течните матови на марката, но тези имат розово златна капачка, което определено предпочитам. И апликаторът е същият, а нанасянето на продукта е лесно.


I got the colours 102 - a classic nude, 109 - a bright strawberry and 115 - a burgundy red, so I could have a good variety. I like the way they feel on the lips, because they aren't drying at first, however there are a few thing I don't like. The formula takes quite a while to set and even then they transfer. They aren't as long lasting as a liquid matte, but after a few hour's wear they do get really dry on the lips.
~
Взех си цветове 102 - класическо неутрално, 109 - ярко ягодово и 115 - тъмно червено, за да имам добро разнообразие. Харесва ми как се усещат на устните, защото не са много изсушаващи, но има някои неща, които не ми допадат. Формулата отнема доста време да изсъхне и дори след това се отпечатва. Не са толкова издържливи, колкото матовите, но след няколко часа носене стават доста сухи на устните.


I can compare them to the Kylie Cosmetics velvet formula, which are quite a lot pricier. Despite the downsides, which I mentioned, I think that the Golden Rose Soft&Matte lipsticks are something I'll keep reaching for and I'm planning to stock up on more colours (hope they bring out more nudes).

Have you tried them yet?
~
Мога да ги сравня с velvet формулата на Kylie Cosmetics, които са доста по-скъпи. Въпреки недостатъците, които споменах, мисля, че червилата на Golden Rose Soft&Matte са нещо, което ще продължавам да използвам и дори планирам да си взема още цветове (надявам се да пуснат на пазара повече неутрални).

Вие пробвахте ли ги вече?

THE END OF AN ERA








Top: SheIn // Jeans: Lidl // Denim Jacket: SheIn // Boots: H&M

After 4 long years I can finally say that I'm (almost) done with uni! The only thing left between me and that diploma is the state exam in July. But I'm so proud of myself for getting my shit together, studying for days and getting straight A's.

Now I have no idea what's in store for the future, but that can also be a good thing, because when do things ever go to plan anyway?

Dress: SheIn // Boots: H&M // Bag: Bershka

Can you believe it's been another year? I was overwhelmed when I turned 20 and now it seems like year after year my youth is slipping away. On a more positive note, I'm still and will always be a child at heart and will always stop to play with stray animals, rewatch Harry Potter on bad and good days and stay in bed and eat sweets as a coping mechanism.

I know I won't always have this body and as the years go by I will probably change a lot, so now's the time to take advantage and wear skin tight dresses and show it off. This one just screams me - from the colour to the length and fit, so it was an obvious choice!

I'M NOT THIS COOL IN REAL LIFE












Dress: SheIn // Boots: Asos // Bag: Bershka

Seriously though! I'm at a point in my life where I don't really care how I look day to day and only make an effort with my makeup and outfit when I shoot a post. I've just felt really disconnected from everything and everyone recently and my looks have been the last thing I wanna focus on.

Exams are almost over now, so I'll slowly be getting back to my old (vain) self.
~
Ама наистина! В такъв етап от живота си съм, в който не ми пука много как изглеждам в ежедневието и полагам усилия само когато снимам пост. Просто се чувствам много отдалечена от всичко и всички напоследък и външния ми вид е последното, върху което искам да се концентрирам.

Изпитите почти свършиха, така че бавно ще се връщам към старото си (повърхностно) аз.

THE BEST FULL COVERAGE DRUGSTORE CONCEALER?


Today's post is going to be about two products that I've been using for so long now and I can honestly say that they're the best coverage drugstore concealers I've tried.

Catrice has always been one of my favourite drugstore brands, because it's really affordable, but always brings out new and high quality products. My favourites have to be the Camouflage Cream and Liquid Camouflage concealers.

Liquid Camouflage

Liquid Camouflage is a waterproof high coverage liquid concealer and I use it under the eyes. It's easy to blend, sets comfortably and doesn't settle into the fine lines (I always set it with powder though). It really covers a lot, but the downside is that I've already used up most of it and I don't use it that often. Formula and coverage wise I can compare it to the MAC Pro Longwear.

I'm already thinking of repurchasing, so that tells you how good it is.

Camouflage Cream

I've had this one for so long and still haven't run out. I use it to cover blemishes and spots, because it's too heavy and not hydrating enough for under the eyes. It completely cancels out redness and imperfections and I can honestly say it's the best spot concealer I've used. I apply it with a small lip brush.

I've recently started using it as an eyeshadow primer too and it works amazing on the eyelids. Of course, as the liquid one, it needs to be set, so it doesn't budge or crease.


You can see on the swatch that the Camouflage Cream has a bit more coverage, but that's probably because of the consistency. The Liquid Camouflage feels a lot lighter and lets your skin breathe, while the Camouflage cream is heavy, but really covers everything.

I use both and they've become a staple in my collection, so if you haven't tried them yet, you have my thumbs up.

In less than a year SheIn has turned into one of my favourite online shops. It's taken over my wardrobe and so I've decided to share some spring dresses I really love. You'll probably see a trend - stripes, shirt dresses, ribbed textiles. Vertical stripes are really making a comeback and I'm so happy about that, because I've always loved them. I'm not big on print, but sometimes it's a fun way to switch up your style. So, if you want to see what I've picked, scroll down!

PROSECCO ON THE BEACH







Isn't this the dream? Drinking prosecco on the beach and listening to the waves crashing. Trastena make the best wine from bio raspberries (which makes me drunk in minutes) and this strawberry prosecco is no exception! It's so good and makes any occasion, or the lack of one, ten times more special.

What's your favourite drink?
~
Това не е ли мечтата? Да пиеш просеко на плажа и да слушаш как вълните се разбиват. Трастена правят най-доброто вино от био малини (което ме напива за минути) и това ягодово просеко не прави изключение! Толкова е хубаво и прави всеки повод, или липсата на такъв, десет пъти по-специален.

Коя е любимата ви напитка?

THESE PALM TREES ARE FAKE


Guess what, guess what! I'm not including any links to Chinese clothing websites today. It's just my unedited stream of thoughts and these photos, which were taken a few days ago by Yoli. Visiting this place has sort of become our tradition (we did it last year too), but it's always fun, because we see each other so rarely. A casual photoshoot is always a must, too even though these days it seems I don't really know the meaning of casual and go over the top with everything.
~
Познайте какво, познайте какво! Днес няма да включвам никакви линкове към китайски сайтове. Този пост ще е само необработеният ми поток от мисли и малко снимки, които Йоли направи преди няколко дни. Посещаването на Рапонги ни е станало традиция (и миналата година го направихме), но винаги е забавно, защото се виждаме толкова рядко. Небрежна фотосесия също е задължителна, въпреки че напоследък май не знам значението на "небрежен" и прекалявам с всичко. 











On a more serious note, I'm not sure if anyone even reads my blog anymore, because my engagement and visits have dropped (maybe because of the name change, maybe not). I don't know about you, but when I open a blog post I mainly wanna see photos and get outfit inspiration or when it comes to makeup see swatches and read a very very short review.

So, I'd like to know, if anyone does read my blog, are you the same or do you prefer longer posts?
~
Но от по-сериозна страна, не съм сигурна дали някой чете блога ми все още, защото обратната връзка и посещенията ми спаднаха (може би заради смяната на името, може би не). Не знам за вас, но когато отворя пост, предимно искам да видя снимки и вдъхновяващи аутфити или когато става въпрос за грим, да видя суочове и много много кратки ревюта. 

И така, бих искала да знам, ако някой все още чете блога ми, като мен ли сте или предпочитате дълги постове?
