Are You A Color Addict? Part 1: Idol

In the awesome swap package from Tiffani I got some L.A. Color Addict polishes and today I have for you the first one - Idol.


Idol is a dark blue shade with fine shimmer. It applies very well and it's very good pigmented too. I used only one thicker coat for full opacity.


Take a look at the photos:






I like it! And you? ;)

10 Facts We Now Know About Sunscreen

I really wanted to share this article with you for some time now... The Summer is almost here and we really should be thinking about how to protect our skin from the Sun.


I was contacted by Florine Chruch at US PharmD website and asked, if I would be prepared to share very interesting reading about sunscreen and facts about it.


"With summer on the horizon, we know it’s time to slather on the sunscreen and reapply, but how much do we really know about this magical lotion that’s said to protect against sunburn and prevent skin cancer? For all the mysteries that still remain about the sun and how it affects us, we can rest assured knowing that we have these 10 facts about sunscreen covered..."

You can read the rest of the article HERE.


Do you use sunscreen?

Chocolate Covered Hazelnuts? Yes, Please!

I can't resist them... I *love* chocolate covered hazelnuts!





Yum! :D

Magic?

Nope! It was dearest Tiffani who sent me the biggest swap package Under The Stars!


Just take a look! No words needed, I'm sure...














Amazing, right? I've never thought I would actually own any RBL polish and now I have got two!
And I even forgot to take pictures of some other goodies I also received in the package, sorry about that...



I really can't "THANK YOU" enough, Tiffani!

NOTD: Essence Where Is The Party?

This one is for lovely Phyrra. Essence Where Is The Party? from their Colour & Go line is strong purple/green duo-chrome. It's very close (dupe) to Zoya Ki, Catrice Iron Mermaiden and probably some other polish as well.


Here are some faces of this polish:








What do you think? Do you like duo-chromes?

Essence Eyeshadows Photos & Swatches

Some of you wanted to see swatches of the Essence eyeshadows I showed you in yesterday's post. Well, here they are :)


First some photos:






It's Up To You:




Go All Girlie:




Mystic Lemon (not very holographic I'm afraid):




Swatches (without any base):




I bought these to use them as highlighter and blush - I read it on one beauty blog that these can be used for such purposes. And Mystic Lemon is supposedly very very similar to NARS Albatross.

Random Ramblings, Vol. 003

Hi! I've been missing in action for some time now, I'm sorry about that. A lot has been going on lately...


********************


On Sunday was my 27th Birthday and boy, this year's number got me thinking... You know, about serious stuff... Crap!


********************


I was tagged by many fellow bloggers with different tags and awards in past few months. And I just wanted to say thank you! I always do posts about them, but it usually takes me some time to actually write them.

Here's a bonus picture - it's a Fig Tree in our yard. Do you see that little visitor?

The winners are:

(Prize 2)


Congrats, girls! :D I'll send you both an e-mail asap.


********************


I have a question about Blogger, if anyone could help me with this.

While I was going through your giveaway entries, I found some new blogs that I want to follow. But apparently I can follow "only" 300 blogs, at least Blogger said so. Is there a way to change this setting or that is the upper limit?


Thanks for stopping by and for your help! :)
