My first Dior nail polish!

This is my first time bloging from my iPhone, can’t wait to see if it looks ok! I’m at my parents house right now, and my mom just gave me this nail polish. She had gotten it for herself, but didn’t like the colour on her, so she gave it to me. I like the colour alot, and I don’t have anything like it in my collection. It’s the Dior Vernis in shade 219 Beige Safari. The color is a pinky beige, nude color, and very work apropriate. It’s nice to apply, and has a wide brush, much like the new Essie brushes, but even better! It`s the best brush I`ve ever used, actually. Me like! – M-

So, I picked up a few new things =) Part 2.

Here are a few more things I got on my trip abroad =)

First and most amazingly it`s the Bourjois Magic Nail polish remover. This is an AMAZING product! I had heard so many wonderful things about this one, but I don`t think we have it in Norway. At least I haven`t seen it anywhere… So I had to pick up a couple when I found it in Palma. And I put it to the test with a red nail polish. I usually look like I have been eating strawberries after removing red polish, with pink fingertips. I had a lot of faith in this pink pot, but I was really surprised when my fingers came out looking perfect after just a couple of seconds in this thing! Wow! I soooo recommend this! It will save me…well…minutes and minutes! =)

Next up is my La Roche-Posay Toleriane Soothing protecting skincare. I got this to use it after long days in the sun. I have quite a few moisturizers, but none of them are just soothing. They all do something in the lines of resurfacing or treating blemishes. I`m super happy with this one, as it really just soothes and calms the skin. I think this is one I`ll always have in my skincare regime, as I feel it`s really good for my skin. I`m beginning to really love this brand! I continue to be pleasantly surprised by it =)

Then there`s the Korres Yoghurt moisturizing mask for normal to combination skin. I had actually only heard about this mask once, but when I saw it at the airport on my way home I thought I`d get it, as it wasn`t that expensive. (It`s only 16 ml/ 0,54 fl.oz though…) I tried it the same night, after a good and much needed scrub. It`s only supposed to be left on for 15 minutes, but I actually just kept it on. (After 15 minutes there wash`t really anything to rinse away anyway.) Maybe I put on too thin of a layer, I don`t know. My skin loved this mask! It felt so good, and very natural. A little goes a long way as well, and it`s quite liquidi, so I thin this little tube will last a while. I look forward to trying more of their products in the future!

The Biotherm lip balm is actually the one thing I didn`t like out of the things I bought. I tastes so bad! It kinda tastes like body lotion or something. I don`t care if it does great things, you just can`t make a lip balm taste bad. End of story. Blah.

The lipstick in the picture is Lancome Rouge in Love, shade 146B. It`s a bright coral, great for summer. This is actually my first high-end lipstick, and I`m really happy with it. I don`t have all that many lipsticks, and the ones I have are either really “wearable” pinks or bright reds. I really wanted something a bit different for summer, and one that didn`t have any glitters or shimmer at all. This one was perfect! (Although, it of course is not the most flattering of colors when it comes to your teeth. The do look a bit yellow…) Still, very happy with this one!

I always buy a new perfume when I travel, and this time it was the Jimmy Choo eau de toilette. I actually kind of regret not getting the eau de parfum, but oh well… I love it. It`s nice. (Said in a Borat manner.)

Yesterday I mentioned some shoes that I got. Here they are! I got them at Zara, and I love them! I haven`t worn them yet, that`s why I even let them up on my bathroom sink area. Aren`t they just glorious?! 

So, I think that`s kinda it for this time. Hope you liked looking at my new stuff =) I`d really like it if you left a comment, saying if you liked these two posts or not. Still kinda new to this blogging, and it takes me forever to write a post, so it would be nice to hear what you think =)

Matte about you!

I have always preferred a super shiny finish to my nail polish, but I have now seen the light, and LOVE a matte finish! I have bought the Essie Matte about you mattifying top coat, and think it`s FANTASTIC! I like that it looks so different from all my other polishes, and that it brings new life to all of them.

Today I used it over my green H&M Polish me Happy. The color is a bit dark, but there`s still kind of a winter thing going on here in Norway, so I think it`s ok. (The poor lighting and camera makes it look even darker than it really is…) Can`t wait to bring out the pinks, though. We are all hoping spring is right around the corner. It should be… We are ready! Come on!

 Oh, and I am super impressed with the H&M nail polishes. I think they are great, and I have a lot of their colors. They stay on for like a week without chipping (with a topcoat), and they are cheep! They also have a great selection of colors. Me likes!

I`m looking at some of the Essie polishes at Beauty Bay now, and can`t decide what polishes to buy! They are almost half the price compared to here in Norway, so it`s a great deal. Plus they have free world-wide shipping! And if I only order two at a time I don`t have to worry about customs and such… But there are sooo many to choose from! Any tips? I`m thinking pinks and corals. Mmmm, pinks and corals…
