Estonian Beauty Haul 2017 #2

Hi loves! Happy midsummer night to you all! Its a big holiday here in Estonia and also one of my favorites :) Who doesn't love long days, specially after dark winter. Its perfect to have Estonian beauty haul and most items I picked up are from Estonian brands. 

I first picked up some Hoia goodies and I got their Lavender, Rosemary & Grapefruit Bodywhip (200ml). This sounds lovely and my girlfriend loves their bodywhips and I love lotions with lavender in it. Other Item from them is Coffee & Peppermint Bodyscrub (200ml). It sounded like a must have for me, because it has two things together I love coffee and peppermint.

I picked up Signe Seebid Orange Body Scrub (200g) from Kaubamaja. I could not resist the yummy scent of it and also I love the glass packaging.

I also got something from Joik and its their Shower Oil Raspberry Bon Bon (200ml). It has been in my wishlist for sometime and I have never tried something like this.

The next item is from Natura Siberica Extra-Firming Facial Mask (75ml, its one of the non Estonian brands). I used up my other mask, so I wanted to try something new and I haven't tried their skincare before.

Time to move on to makeup items and continuing with non Estonian brand. I got two pigments from Bellapierre and I got shade Resonance (pink) and the shade of the other one is rubbed off, so I don't know the name of it, but it is a gorgeous green, which can't wait to try.

If you have read this blog for sometime, you know I love Ontic Minerals shadows and I wanted to try their foundation and bronzer.I got the Flawless Mineral Foundation in shade Stories From the Ivory Coat. I hope it will match me, I should have gone with out any makeup on, to get matched before buy it. I like it has also SPF15 and so does the bronzer. Its their Mineral Bronzer and I got the shade Sunblessed.

This is it for my little beauty haul :) I hope you guys like this post and if you have any great natural brands to recommend to me, let me know in the comments below.

Review: Seraphine Botanicals Orange + Cream Lip Polish

Hi loves! Its so important to keep the lips hydrated and smooth, specially when you like to wear liquid lipsticks like me. I have been testing out Seraphine Botanicals Orange + Cream Lip Polish (10g, $18) and its 99.5% natural.

The lip scrub comes in a little jar and I need to scoop out the product. The scrub itself has a light orange scent to it, which I love. The formula is with out mineral oil, parabens and phthalates. Its not tested on animals and is hypoallergenic. Its also vegan and GMO free.

Its with avocado and apricot oils, which help repair chapped lips. The golden sugar in it helps to remove dead skin cells and makes lips smoother. It also contains mango butter, which provides hydration through out the day.

I like to wet my lips before I apply it and then massage my lips with it till the sugar melts away. On their page they do say to leave it on for 2 minutes and I understand why, because it can work the magic and make lips softer. But I wash it off and my lips are more nourished then before. I like it can be scrub and a lip mask at the same time. Its recommended to use 1-2 times a week. I usually use this type of items whenever I feel the need. 

Down below you can see before and after pictures. Sorry about the bad quality, I don't have the best lighting in the bathroom. You can still see, that scrub made my lips seem fuller and smoother.

I'm really happy with this little treasure! So happy I got it in my Style Tone box (latest unboxing). It has been pleasure to use :) If you are interested in it, you can check it out here.

Do you use lip scrub regularly?

Review: Ontic MInerals Mineral Veil | R2 Translucent

Hi loves! Today I have for you review on Ontic MInerals Mineral Veil and its in shade R2 Translucent (8g, 26.95EUR). There is two other powders from this range, the one I have has shimmer to it. I haven't used this rice powder to set my makeup, but its perfect to brush away my bake ;)

It comes in a jar and has a shifter, which doesn't let all the powder come out. In the jar the powder looks white and has a slight silver sheen to it. There is no scent to it and there is so many ways to use this powder. I like to brush away my bake with it and it works as the Hourglass Abient Light powder. I also have used this Ontic Minerals powder as my highlighter on cheeks bones, on the cupid's bow. It can be used as a highlighter wherever you want. It doesn't look over powering, but it can be more intense, if you wet the brush with setting spray. I sometimes do it when I want more intense highlight.

On the swatch it might seem too much, but I did build it up. You can see here how it looks when I brush off my bake with this powder. It brightens up everything so well and it has been my favorite powder for highlighting and just brightening up any makeup look. I want to try next their matte powder to set my foundation and see how it will work for me :)

Review: Bellapierre Cosmetics Kiss Proof Lip Créme | Hot Head

Hi loves! Last week was so busy that I didn't find the time to post, so this week you guys will get 2 post and first one is on Bellapierre Cosmetics Kiss Proof Lip Créme in shade Hothead (3.8g, $20). All together there is 15 shades available. 

If you don't know the brand they do mineral makeup and have received Natural & Organic Award Europe 2017. Also their products are cruelty free. 

This liquid lipstick comes in a clear tube and has a flat doe foot applicator. It helps to get precise application, which is a must have with a bright liquid lipstick. The formula of it is creamy and so pigmented, which you can see down below for yourself. The liquid lipstick has a sweet candy scent to it, which I adore.

The application is so easy with this liquid lipstick. It applies evenly and I need only one coat and it lasts on me all day with out fading. It stays on lips all day, but it does feel sticking when I put my lips together. When swatched on hand it doesn't feel sticking at all, which is weird.

About the claim its kiss proof, I have to say its 99% true. I do get slight transfer, but on swatch I can rub it and it doesn't go anywhere. Because the formula of it is so long lasting, it does feel drying on lips. I can feel the dryness end of the day, but its perfect for times when I do need my lipstick to last a long time. I wouldn't wear it daily, but special occasions its brilliant ;) Down below you can see how it looks on lips. Its so pretty shade and I'm so happy I got this shade in my beauty subscription box :D

Of you are interested checking it out it and other shades, you can do so here.

Which is your favorite liquid lipstick formula?
