2017 April UK fashion magazine with free beauty gifts plus 2 discount codes

Good afternoon world,

 I would like to show you what the April 2017 UK Marie Claire magazine included

Last year as I was traveling Ireland I saw that many fashion magazines like Elle, Glamour, RED, Cosmopolitan etc do include some good free beauty gifts in some of their issues.

Here in Bulgaria ours do that very sporadically and that is why I decided to check if I can find where I can purchase them online. One way was ebay (need to find reliable seller) and the other more reliable I found was this site: newsstand.co.uk (they do worldwide delivery). I used them already twice and they have very good choice of magazines there.

This months Marie Claire includes the Elemis Cream in pretty big tester tube 15 ml (worth 28 pounds) the original one is 30 ml. 

You will get inside the magazine some perfume swatches and some discount codes. I will list the codes here, as I cannot use them and perhaps someone from my readers can enjoy them:

And one for the White Company:

To end the post  here is a preview of what the next issue will include, if you are interested:

So do you have such gifts in your country? Do you enjoy buying the magazines? Would like to know how it is in different countries

Have a great day

2017 My first cultbeauty haul

Hello world,

celebrating Valentines day, today I purchased some items from cult beauty and decided to share with you my first purchase

wp-1487081765212.jpg

I wanted to try some Charlotte Tilbury items so that is why I bought this pallete in “Vintage Vamp” and the Matt Revolution Lipstick in Amazing Grace . The pallete is OK, but I think I expected a little bit too much, will see if in time my opinion will change. I am not really impressed by the lipstick too, as it is a little bit drying on my lips, color is a everyday one.

The only item I was impressed by was the Triple Action Cleanser by ALPHA-H. It removed my Foundation very easy and my skin feels great after it.

Wit the purchase I got a Beauty Blender Soap as a tester and Becca‘s Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal so now I know what was the talks about 

Here is the link for cultbeauty

My opinion on: dupe vs real items

Hi world,

as I was inspired by Sam from the Youtube Channel Samloves I decided to write a post about my opinion on the dupe vs real .

As a woman I like to have nice items and during the last months I think I started to like more high end stuff.

The last couple of months I decided to invest in some skin care, perfumes and high end makeup . As example I love my Guerlain Parure Gold foundation and my Hera BB Cushion they just stay perfect on my skin and I personally think that the Guerlain one did make my skin looking better, but what about fashion Items?

I do not have a car. I work 8 hours  and then travel with city transportation back home. I do not want to think that I might damage my bag if I put it somewhere or scratch it or someone stеаls it. I want to have a nice looking item, but I do not want to invest a big bunch of money for an item, that will stay in my closet. I would better invest them in a up to date laptop or a camera or a designer perfume, that is why I love that there are dupes for some of the designer items (fashion ones), where you can save money and feel like a fashionista. 

Here on the photos in this post you can see some of mine

What do you think about that topic? Would like to hear your opinion 

Have a great day

2016 Beauty Favorites

Hi world,

we are already the first week in 2017, but I wanted to share with you my beauty favorites for 2017, so here I go:

For lip Products:

I did mentioned those lip products in a review previously so I would not repeat myself.

For Face products – Foundations

The Max Factor CC I love since couple of years. Recently I started mixing it with my Guerlain Foundation as the second is a little bit yellowish for my skin tone. Both combined are great. 

For Face products – Highlighters

Face Products – Makeup Remover:

I love those Simple Wipes, I am really impressed by them, they work wonders and those not dry too soon after opening. The Face Cleanser from First Aid Beauty is also a good one to try and I love my skin after using that.

My last favorites are couple Items that I could not combine in some other group, so that is why they are here

The Lancome Hypnose Mascara is a Tester, but as I loved it I bought a full size in this Christmas Season. Gucci Bamboo is one of my 2016 perfume findings and I love it. The Real Techniques sponge is the best beauty tool that I found yet for applying foundations

That is all for 2016, I am hoping to find new Items in 2017!

2016 Guerlain Parure Gold Foundation Review

Hello world,

in the last couple of months I tested my high end foundation Guerlain Parure Gold and now I can share my review with you

wp-1480686311892.jpg

I love it. As simple as that I do not regret buying it for the high price as it is worth each and every penny of the price.

My skin looks flawless with it. The micro gold particles gives me dewy and satin finish. The smell is nice and luxury, you will not be overtaken by it. I really think that somehow it does works wonders for my small lines around my eyes, they are not exaggerated. I am not feeling it on my skin. Probably the tone I purchased is not exactly my match, but it combines with my other less expensive paler shades like a dream. If without it after couple of hours the foundation on my face looks powdery, mixed with it it does not. I would definitely recommend that to anyone with combination to dry skin 

I have the 01 Beige Pale and it is a little bit yellowish for my fair skin tone, probably would need 00 Beige Ivory or 11 Rose Pale

2016 kosmetik4less haul

Hello world,

recently I found this site with cosmetic items I had difficulties getting in my local shops, so I decided to buy some things out of there and share with you my opinion.

I am speaking about kosmetik4less.de

They have brands like Barry M, BH Cosmetics, Beauty Blender, Essence , Catrice etc… You can check them by yourself and here are the items I bough

Face Products:

I did manage to bye some of this summer/fall 2016 collection of the Essence Gel Nail Varnishes, which I was missing in my collection:

wp-1479674132392.jpg

I looked for a long time for this Catrice “Supreme Fusion Lip Color and Care”, but we did not get them in our local shops, so I decided to buy 2 and some cool one with Bamboo Lipstick Case 

wp-1479674521894.jpg

And as last I took also 2 different Catrice Nail varnishes

wp-1479674148347.jpg

Short Review: I did my nails with the gray Catrice Color in “Nuit Fleurie” and it is gorgeous I will probably post  pictures on my Instagram with the creation I made. It suits my fair skin tone and it is office appropriate.

I also did try the Catrice lipstick in “everyBARE and Nowhere” and it felt good on the lips. It had gold-brown- nude tone, very smooth and moisturizing.

2016 Bath and Bodyworks IKEA Dupe Candle

Hi world,
This is the best news I would like to share with you today… I found a dupe for one of my favorite BBW candles

Let me introduce to you this big new IKEA candle from this years winter range “Vinter 2016”.

This candle costs a friction of the price of the Bath and Bodyworks one, as the smallest one from them (which is 36g) will cost you 4.50$ and this only 3.99$ and its way bigger.
The notes are: A forest and pine scent with hints of fresh herbs .
Key features are:

Burning time: 40 hr (40 hr)
Height: 3 ½ ” (9 cm)
Diameter: 3 ¾ ” (10 cm)
Weight: 1 lb 7 oz (0.64 kg)

I burned both and the smell for me is the same so the price is the point for decision which one to take home with me… The fragrance will fill your room and you will fill cozy and nice

I will definitely stock on it and would like to suggest to you to do the same if you like fresh winter scents and if you have an Ikea store near you 🙂
