Here’s my new years nails. I chose to go with matte Pink.
The color is L’oréal Color Riche #213 with Essie Matte About You Top Coat
The rest of my look will e up later. I just hope the focus on my compact camera will cooperate with me.
Hi everybody. Sorry about bad update, but I’ve just wanted to relax now around christmas.
Today I was in town to look for clothes to New Years Eve, I came home with two pair of black pumps, one envelope bag, a strapless long dress and a new freebra since mine was both two sizes (!) too small and had lost the glue.
My new years ensemble is entirely in black, so I’m thinking of how to do my make up and my hair.
Right now the plan is doing champagne/golden nails, a golden shimmery smokey eye and red or nude lips. And maybe put my hair up in a french twist.
What do you think? Anyone have any other ideas?
Pictures will be up on my look. I’m really bad at remembering to take pictures before leaving my house, but if I don’t I’ll try taking at the party.
and the 24:th and last window contained.
Shea Body Butter – 200 ml
Not much of a surprise that it was a body butter, but I really like that it was the shea one
I’ve been planning on buying a more neutral body butter, but I’ve tried to choose between Shea, Olive, vitamin E and Aloe.
The only problem I have with the shea scent is that it reminds me of Sun Screen, which makes me long for sund when I smell it.
As for the texture and feeling on the skin it’s like their other butters, I like it but if you need something that absorbes fast, don’t buy a butter.
As for the pictures in this post, my step-dad wanted the camera for the holidays, so I’m using my compact camera.
And with this I’ll wish my readers a Merry Christmas, I’m going to go fix the christmas ham for lunch.
What’s your favorite christmas traditions, food, decorations and movie?
In the 23:d window there was
Olive Beautifying Oil – 100 ml
I can honestly say, ever since I saw the look of the calendar this year I’ve been waiting for an olive product, it just felt as it would have at least one. I was right.
The beautifying Oils are dry oils that are quickly absorbed and fit to use everywere, face, body and hair, and claims to moisturise, smoothen an illuminate the skin. I have never used one of these regularly but I have the sweet lemon one since before. The olive scent is mild and I like it. I will use this more often than the lemon one.
As for the uses of the oil, I can’t answer yet. I have used it in my hair but didn’t like it. I like the feeling of it on the skin. I’m thinking of doing a test were I use the oil on half my face and my regular moisturizer on the other half, and the same with my legs. To see if the skin get different. But I think I’ll wait a while with that.
In the 22:nd window I got
Almond Hand and Nail Butter – 100 ml
Also a product that I already own, and probably my most frequently used hand cream.
I love it. Its smooth on the skin and smells faint and not overpowering. It lingers a while on the skin so it shouldn’t be used if you’re in a hurry.
This is always a part of my manicure routine, both on the nails and the hands.
In the 21:th window we found.
Warmin Mineral Mask – 100 ml
I have this mask already, but mine’s almost emoty, so this is great.
I use a facial mask once a a and often reach for this one if I’m not in need of any special target area. This is for all skin types and when you rub it on your skin it really gets warm. It smells nice of eucalyptus and I always feel fresh and glowing after I’ve used this. The texture is a bit runnier than a clay but it still feels like one, and since it is a clac mask that is good.
If I have time in all the christmas things that is to be done I’ll do a christmas manicure tonight.
In window Number 20 there was
Camomile Gentle Eye Make-Up Remover – 250 ml
I got one of these last year to, and it’s a really nice remover. Sadly it doesn’t work on waterproof make-up, and I usually use waterproof mascara. They have a camomille remover for waterproof make-up to, it’s a cream and I’m hoping to try it sometime. Even though I’m not a fan of cream remover.
This is a watery liquid that’s easiest to use with a cotton pad/ball. I usually put some on a cotton pad, hold it against my eyelid for a few seconds and then gently pull it downwards to remove the make-up. It has a very mild scent that’s not disturbing at all.
I’m almost out of mine, so getting a new one is really good. Too bad it wasn’t the waterproof one.
And in the 19:th window there was
Rainforest Moisture Hair Butter for dry hair – 200 ml
As I guessed I got a hairbutter too.
I have this one since earlier too and I like it. I don’t reach for it since I have my Macadamia Hari Masque. But I usuallt keep this in my gym bag.
It smells sweet, kind of like honey and the texture is creamy and thick.
It leaves the hair soft and just like the schampoo and conditioner its free from Silicones, Parabens and Colourants.
Behind window number 18 there was.
Peppermint Cooling Foot Lotion – 250 ml
I already have a bottle of this foot lotion, and I use it at least once a week.
I try to moisturize my feet everyday before I go to bed. Bu usually I forget. I should put a foot cream visible on the nightstand.
I have four different foot creams, this one, the Peppermint Intense Foot Rescue and the Hemp Foot Protector, all from The Body Shop and then I have a Mineral Foot Cream from Shemen Amour.
I think the one I like the scent best on is the one from Shemen Amour, it smells sweet and almost fruity. while the one I like the least is the Hemp one, so I only use then one when I’m really dry.
Of the peppermint ones I use The Intense Foot Rescue more often than the Cooling Foot Lotion, simply because I think it smells better. But the cooling foot lotion is the one I massage in after a pedicure.
