Review: Ontic Minerals Ontic Pro Soft Shimmer Duo

Hi loves! I'm so excited to share this new highlighter with you! I know last week's post was also on highlighters, but lately I have been obsessed with highlighters. I have fallen in love with Ontic Minerals OnticPro Soft Shimmer Duo (8g, 26.95 EUR). 

These come in a beautiful cardboard packaging. Inside there is nice size mirror and a huge highlighter pan, which contains 2 shades: light champagne shade and light peach. The compact closes magnetically and is sleek, which make it in my book travel friendly.

The formula of the highlighting powders is so buttery. I love the formula so much and wish their eyeshadows would feel as buttery and the pressed powders.

These are nicely pigmented and blend out well. I love how it melts into other powders I use and looks seamless. It gives a gorgeous glow to to my cheek bones, which looks natural, like its me not the highlighting powder. This is the kind a look I like  for my everyday makeup. It also can be build up for a blinding glow, which I have been doing time to time. There is no such thing as too much highlighter, right?!

On the left you can see the swatches of both highlighting powders and how it looks mixed together. I personally like to mix both shades together. I love the shade I get and it fits my skin tone perfectly.

This highlighting powder recently won the IG Iluteemat 2018, under category Best Natural Cosmetics. And I can see why, its wonderful powder and everyone should have it in their makeup bag.

They have 2 other duos in this range for cheeks and the other one looked perfect for contouring. These are the next items I want to add to my natural beauty collection. If you wanna check this powder out for yourself, you can find it here.

Review: Le'Maagi Highlighting Powders

Hi loves! In my latest wish list post (link) I talked about Le'Maagi Highlighting Powders and how much I wanna try all the shades out and now I have them :) The shades are Champagne Club, Beach Gil and City of Angles (2.3g, 16.99 EUR).

These come in little compacts and inside there is the powder and a mirror. I like there is no wasted space and the outside packaging looks simple and stylish, only the brand name on the lid. I would have liked the shade name been printed back, not written by hand.

The powders feel buttery to the touch and can be used with or without a brush. Its easy to blend them out with fingertips. I personally like to use a brush.

These shade are gorgeous and I have made it them all work for me. These don't contain any nasty ingredients like talc, synthetical colorants or fragrances and preservatives. 

These can be build up to blinding highlight, so I recommend using light hand when you try them out the first time. These are insanely pigmented and easy to blend out. 

On the left you can see the swatches of all 3 shades. I like the most Champagne Club as it looks most flattering on my skin color. I like to use the other 2 when I go for more bronze look. On cheek bones they all look beautiful mixed together with other powders, but the deeper shades don't look best on the bridge of the nose. I could pull it off when I would have more tan going on. City of Angels would look beautiful on medium skin tone. 

The staying powder of these is amazing! This gives me a glow that lasts all day and even my oily skin can't eat it up ;)

Ingredients: Mica(CI77019), Titanium dioxide(CI77891), Kaolinite(kaolin clay), Copernicia Cerifera(Carnauba wax), Simmondsia Chinensis seed oil(Jojoba oil), Iron oxide(CI77491,CI77492), Tin oxide(CI77861) 

I do love these and I like they don't contain any nasty ingredients. I can use it and be sure it doesn't make me brake out or cause allergic reaction. If you are base in Estonia you can get these beauties from Pillerkaar (link) and the rest of the world can buy these on the brands Facebook page (link).

Have you tried these before?

Review: Bellápierre Mineral Lipstick | Burlesque, Couture

Hi loves! Today I share with you Bellápierre Mineral Lipsticks in shade Burlesque and Couture (3.5g, $20.00).

The lipstick comes in a black tube. I like the shape of their tubes, because I can put them upside down and they stay. The reason I do it is that I would be able to see the shade, which is marked bottom of the lipstick tube.

Their lipsticks are formulated with natural waxes, pigments, iron oxides and antioxidants like vitamin C and E. These are 100% natural lipsticks, which are pigmented and the formula is cream.

These glide on easily and feel comfortable on lips. As you can see on the picture (left), the darker shade likes to grab on to everything. Its not easy shade to wear in winter, because my lips are not as smooth and this color just grabs on to every thing. I definetly need to scrub my lips before applying it and do lip mask. I have to pull all my beauty tricks out to makes this shade look beautiful on my lips.

  • Couture - is a deep berry red with lilac sheen to it. Its unique shade and thats why I want to make it work.
  • Burlesque - is dark pinky red shade. Perfect to brighten up any makeup look.

These do last better on my lips then other creamy lipsticks. Its not going to be as long lasting as liquid lipstick or matte lipstick. Its also not as drying. Its comfortable formula and it doesn't makeup my lips chapped.

Overall I'm happy with these new lipsticks in my collection. I love how they look and feel on lips, and I don't mind I have to work bit harder with one of the shades. If you wanna check these out for yourself I'll link them here. There is all together 14 shades to pick from.

Which is your favorite lipstick formula?

Review: Ingli Pai Rosewater

Hi loves! By now you guys know how obsessed I'm with rosewater and I wanna try them all :) I have been testing out Ingli Pai Rosewater (100ml, 6.10 EUR). 

If this is a new brand to you. Ingli Pai is Estonian beauty brand, which makes 100% natural beauty products. I have reviewed one of their toners one the blog before (link).

The Rosewater comes in a glass bottle and has sprayer, which gives out even mist. Its with out any alcohol and its 100% natural. The ingredients list contains only 3 items: Aqua, Rose Damascena, Anthemis Nobilis. This claims not to irritate or dry out the skin.

I picked it up when I was in Estonia last time and have used it 2 week now. I use it morning and evening. Before applying it I do shake it. Its my first step in the skincare routine. I used before Joik rose water (review), but I finished it and wanted to try something new. So I went with this one. 

I just like to spray it all over my face and it refreshens the skin and hydrates it. My skin feels so nice after it and ready for the nest step in my skincare routine.

It can be used to cleanse the skin as well. In that case I would spray it on a cotton pad and swipe it over my face to get off all the dirt and oiliness.  

I think in the future I would buy this over the Joik one, because the price is better and I get more product.

I would recommend it everyone. Its a gentle toner and I love how it makes my skin look. I don't think you can get it in west of Europe. I found it here and they do deliver to Baltic and also to Finland. 

Do you like to use rosewater as your toner?
