♥ November 2013 Ipsy Bag ♥

Heyy girls,

Two weeks ago I received my November Ipsy Bag. If you don't know, Ipsy is a subscription service where you pay 10$ per month to receive 5-6 deluxe sized beauty products. If you're curious about it you can check it out here. I have to say that I've been subscribe to Ipsy for a couple of months now and that I am very pleased with it. Here is an overview of my November Ipsy Bag...

The first thing that I got in this month Ipsy bag was this Starlook eyeliner in the color Topaz. It is a silver eyeliner, perfect for the upcoming Christmas time. As you know, I am not a big fan of Starlook's products but this eyeliner wasn't that bad. Of course, it doesn't compete with the Urban Deday's glide-on 24/7 eyeliners but it was smoother that the first eyeliner that I got in my September bag and the lip liner that I got in my October bag. The pigmentation is great though. I love how it is a full size product.
Next, I got this baked eyeshadow from BH Cosmetics in the color Aphrodite. The pigmentation is great, you can easily build up the intensity. The color is also very pretty for autumn and I have nothing bad to say about this product. You can learn more about those baked eyeshadows here.

Moving on the the next item, I got this nail polish from Nailtini in the color Champagne. I've been raving about the Nailtini's nail polishes since the beginning and this nail polish doesn't do exception. You can get a good color pay off with only one coat but I always put on two coats for a more vibrant look. What can I say more than I. LOVE. THEM. Yeah I know, I'm obsessed.

First Impression: Bioré Deep Cleasing Pore Strips

heyy girls,

as you might know, Target opened a store near me a couple of weeks ago and I went a little bit crazy. I forgot to do a haul but if you'll still be interested into seeing what I got at Target just tell me in the comments ;) So, when I was there I found those Biore Deep Cleansing Pore Strips and I've heard great but also bad things about them in the past. This is why I decided to buy them and tell you what is my true opinion about those supposedly "magic" strips. Just keep reading if you want to know the truth about the Biore Deep Cleansing Pore Strips...

First, I'll just tell you a little something about my skin type, just for you to see if your skin would react the same because as you know everyone skin is different. I have combination skin to normal, plus I have sensitive skin. Actually, my skin has been acting up lately and I think it is because of the change of weather. But basically, my skin gets a little oily (not much) on my forehead and on my chin sometimes towards the end of the day. It is also dry sometimes because I have sensitive skin so my skin gets dry easily. I mostly have blackheads on my nose area. It isn't my a big concern about my skin but I wouldn't mind if they could disappear ;)  
So I've tested out for you the Biore  Deep Cleansing Pore Strips for the first time last Monday. So this is a first impression, not a review at all because I don't think that trying a product once can really tell you if it is a good or a bad product. So let's move on to what I thought about this product.
First, I opened up the little wrap in which the little white strip comes in. I put some water on my nose area for my skin to be wet. I did take a shower before so my face was clean. 
Next, I read the instruction and did what they tell me to do; I took out the strip after I put water on my face, then I put the sticky side of the strip on my nose. I let it sit there for 10 minutes while I was preparing myself to go to bed. 
Now was time for the removing part. I literaly felt like I was ripping off my skin when I was pulling on the strip. It felt exactly like when you try to remove a plaster. It was an horrible feeling! 
After that much pain I thought to myself: "There are better be some black heads on that miserable strip!"...
Guess what!? There were no black heads. Zero. Nada. I was pissed off. Then, I went to bed and while I was writting this post, my nose was tangly and I felt a weird sticky residue. It felt like the sticky thing from the strip at the beginning was now stuck on my nose. 

I tried to remove it by rinsing my face with water. The tangly feeling stopped after a couple of minutes and I touched my nose again. It felt SO SOFT! 
So basically, it did nothing for my black heads but it did exfoliate my skin. For that reason, this product was a total fail to me. Of course, I'll try it again and if my opinion changes I'll do a blog post about it. Also, if you know a way to make it work or if you noticed that I used wrong, please leave me a comment :)

I hope you enjoyed reading this post,

I ♥ Fall Tag

Heyy girls,

as you all know fall is here and winter is definitely coming soon. I've decided to do the I ♥ Fall Tag since I wanted to share with you my love for Fall. I know that I'm late to do this Tag so yes there will be Halloween related questions but it doesn't matter because I'll answer them anyway. I hope you'll enjoy it. Next post will be a first impression or a review on a skincare product that I've recently purchased.

Favorite Fall lip product?
I love my Maybelline Baby Lips in the color Grape Vin. It gives a nice berry tint to your lips and is sheer enough that you don't need a mirror to apply it.

Favorite Fall Nail Polish?
A couple of weeks ago, I bought Chinchilly by Essie at the drugstore and I just think that it is THE perfect color for Fall. Seriously, I highly recommend you to take a look at it if you have a chance one day. It is a very pretty taupe color that goes with everything.
Favorite Starbucks Fall Drink?
Okay so I might be the last person on earth who haven't tried any Starbucks Fall drink, but I'm more of a cold beverage type of person. When I'm shopping I like to drink refreshing drinks like the Green Tea Lemonade.
Favorite Fall Candle?

I can't choose between them so I'll have to tell you what ARE my favorite Fall candles ;) I love Leaves, Autumn and Mahogany Teakwood (which smells like Abercrombie...)

Favorite Fall Scarf or accessory?
Recently, I've been loving my new scarf from Target that I bought when I went there for the first time. I love floral prints so for me it was perfect. I also can't forget to present you my Fall coat that I also bought at Target. **Sorry for the quality of the pictures**

♥ Review: L'Oreal Gentle Eye Makeup Remover ♥

Heyy girls,

It has been a long time since I've post something and I wanted to apologize. Also I would really appreciate if you could write me in the comments section what you want me to do next (ex: makeup collection, skincare routine, tag). 

So, today's topic is all about what I think of the L'Oreal Gentle Eye Makeup Remover. It says on the bottle that it is a new packaging so this is why you might not recognize it.

First, I love how compact it is. It doesn't take much space which is great when you're traveling. It doesn't have a distributor (like most eye makeup remover) but that's okay because the hole isn't too big.
