BYS Animal Instincts Eyeshadow - Greens Photos, Review & Swatches

I know BYS mostly by their nail polish line, but did you know they make other cosmetic products too? Well, they do. Today I'm going to show you their eyeshadow palette.


BYS Animal Instincts Eyeshadow - Greens photos (I dropped palette and one eyeshadow got broken, sadly) and swatches:








And a very quick look using this palette:



Eventhough the palette is named Greens, these eyeshadows look more turquoise to me, because of the two darker shades. All eyeshadows in this palette are very soft, but a bit crumbly. They are more pigmented as I expected them to be, easy to blend too and fun to play with - I layered them for the upper look. Shades in this palette are cool toned, so they will probably look more falttering on someone with cooler complexion than mine.


What do you think about this palette? Do you use shades like thes?


To paleto in ostala BYS ličila lahko najdeš v spletni trgovini Moja Drogerija.

BM Beauty Eyeshadow Swatches Part 2

I have already shown you some swatches of BM Beauty mineral eyeshadows back in October here.


Couple of days ago Nina at Specia.si sent me two more samples of BM Beauty eyeshadows - Emerald Showers and Aquatic Galaxy (I love the names!). Here are the swatches:


Emerald Showers: "Sparkly green."
Aquatic Galaxy: "Vivid aqua blue."


Both are very fine and creamy, nicely pigmented and easy to work with. I think my love for mineral makeup is back! Yay! Lately I've been using mostly "the conventional makeup", if I can say so. But now that I've played with minerals again, I think I need some more ;D


BM Beauty ličila so na voljo na LilyLolo.si.

2CELLOS

2CELLOS is a Croatian-Slovenian cello duo consisting of Stjepan Hauser and Luka Šulić. Why am I talking about two cellist, you ask?

Well, I went to see 2CELLOS concert yesterday and it was amazing! They were amazing! And they are pretty darn good looking too ;D


This is the video that made them famous:




But when they started performing AC/DC the entire hall was up dancing!






And something more romantic:




I think I have the slightest crush...

NOTD: Cult Nails Quench & Barielle Elle's Spell

I had to cut my nails down to nubbins, since I broke two of them the other day. That's why I wasn't really in the mood to paint them. But yesterday I played with Cult Nails Quench and Barielle Shades Elle's Spell and here is the result:




What do you think?

NOTD: Cult Nails Living Water

Hi there! How are you? I wasn't really in the mood for blogging the last couple of days, since it snowed here every day and I had to shuffle the snow to even get out of the house.


But today I have for you my today's manicure! I'm wearing Cult Nails Living Water. It's a blackened teal base with blue, green and sliver micro glitter particles in it. I used two coats, had no application issues at all. This one does dry a bit flat though, so I have added a layer of top coat.


Cult Nails Living Water:




How do you like it?

NOTD: China Glaze Velvet Bow & Ring In The Red

Ugh, it's so cold here in Slovenia these days! This morning we had around -18°C (that's -0,4°F). I want to go to some place where is nicely warm...


Today's NOTD:



China Glaze Velvet Bow & Ring In The Red for my accent finger. Velvet Bow is nice and vampy red with creme finish and Ring In The Red is a slightly red tinted base packed with red glitter in two sizes - tiny round glitter and a bit bigger round glitter particles.


Bonus photo:


Snow, snow, snow!


Thanks for dropping by!

NOTD: Cult Nails Devious Nature

Biba is wearing hot pink! Yup, that's right. Take a look!


Cult Nails Devious Nature:




Devious Nature is hot fuchsia pink shade with creme finish. It applies like butter - easy and smooth. I used 2 coats to reach full opacity. And this one is super shiny even without top coat.
