NOTD and a quick review!


Hey guys, how are you all?
I'm totally fine, reading for my upcoming exams in a couple of months (Well, I know in Christmas I won't be reading that much), watching movies and talking about Gossip Girl all the time (Okay, I'm obsessed-Laughing is not allowed!!!).
So, I wanted something to bright up the cloudy and rainy weather and I found it! Erre Due Exclusive nail polish. I think it's really good, not too soft, not too bright. I know its colour is more approriate for summer, but when I'm at home, I enjoy painting my nails in every possible colour! Anyway, so I tried this on and I was amazed. I applied it so easily, it gives the colour after 2 coats (You can have it after one coat too, but I wanted it too be more bright), it dries fast.. It's really a perfect nail polish! You can find it many colours! I think they are about 6€ or $8, and they totally worth the money!
Also, on some nails I created some black-inspired from leopard pattern- prints and I think they are cute! I used a black nail polish that is used for nail painting!
And seeing the bright pink next to my gray jacket, it confirms my thought that gray and pink are so HOT!

Oh, and in case you don't know Erre Due, it's a greek band that has to do with make up! All of their products are great quality, and in their stores you can find from eyeshadows and eyeliners to nail polishes. You can check Erre Due *here! If you want to buy something and you can't find it in your country, you can contact me and find a way together! I have nothing to do with the company, I am just willing to help you!

So, are you today?
How did you spend Thanksgiving? It's a pity in my country we don't celebrate Thankgiving!
What are your plans for the weekend?
Take care sweeties,

Celebrities hair through years, Pt.1 : Rihanna


Rihanna is one of the ladies that really take risks when it comes to hair. She is not afraid to change her long brown hair into a black or raid bob haircut. All these years, she has had all kinds of haistyles on her head. Long wavy, long with bangs, short with bangs, strict bob, red bob, blonde bob and now red long straight hair.
I loved her hair in her videoclip of Unfaithful (long wavy/straight,long with bangs), and then I loved her hair in Please don't stop the music (black short assymetric haircut).
What do you think?
Which look do you love the most?

I am a queen in my bath!

Hellooooo world!
How are you all? I'm so sorry for my current absence but I am really busy these days!
Anyway, a couple of weeks ago I told you about my bottle collection and my lovely friend from *Blushing loves* asked me to do a review on my Kings&Queens shower gels, by Korres!
Hm, to be honest I don't really know how to review a shower gel but I will do my best! As I told you, I have the
Emperor Akbar Mango Showergel
and the
Chinese Princess with Jasmine showergel
I've tried recently both of these products and I can say I am really satisfied!
First of all they come in this transparent, round, shaped bottle with the black cap that won't allow any of the content come out. When you open the bottle, you can immediately smell the great scents of these gels, jasmine, mango and so on. The formula is really light and it seems to be good for my dry/normal skin. In the bath you get a lot of suds (which is my main factor to judge a shower gel-I love suds!) while enjoying the exotic scents of the gel, which are not very heavy. I think you can deal with them even if you can't stand strong scents, like me. The result is clean, smooth and refreshed skin and a really good mood!
You can find all the products on their website*here*, such as shower gels, body butters, scrubs, and many more!
What I love about the names of these products is that every name is inspiring as it comes with a little story behind it! For example, as the site mentions about the Jasmine shower gel, there was a princess that had a garden full of jasmine just to make her lover stays with her. (Jasmine is known for awaking sensual thoughts and making love go strong). As for my Mango shower gel, it says that there was an Emperor back to the 16th century that planted over 100,000 mango trees. He still has the record for this action!
Korres products are always made by natural products and are very friendly to the environment. The package is recyclable and none the ingredients cause any allergies.
You can find these products on their website or at any Korres store for 5€ or $7.

So, have you ever tried these gels? 
Was this review helpful to you? 
What are your plans for this weekend?
Have fun and laugh!

Estee Lauder concealer review

A few months ago, a magazine had this product as well as a mascara which I have already reviewed). It's from Estee Lauder and it's called Double Wear Stay-in-place concealer with SPF 10. It has won the TotalBeauty.com Reader's Choice Beauty Award,Category Nominated: Concealer.
As far as I can talk about this concealer, it's amazing. The sample I use for about three or more months, is still in great quality and I have plenty of it left (19 OZ, 4.7 ml ).

It is great for covering the dark circles around the eyes, red spots or pimples by using just a little of this.
The package is a tube with a flick for easy use! Very good choice and it helps you to apply the quality you want at the exact place you want.

As you can see from the picture, the formula is light and non heavy, and I hope you can see the difference after applying it on my eye.


It can stays on your skin for the whole day without becoming a mess.
The original product costs $20 but it's worth it, trust me You can find it here *here*! There is also a great offer on their site with their whole Double Wear collection just for $25.

Have you ever tried it?
Was this review useful?

One of my favourite lipsticks is Sweet Kiss lipstick by Bourjois. I bought this
Anyway, I bought Rose corset shade for 14€ ($20) and in a way, it was worth it. First of all, the package is really good. Purple, with silver details, and it comes in a very useful way that it does not allow the lipstick to be damaged. I loved it!
lipstick one year ago, and as usual I lost it! Grr!
The products promises "High intensity colour in just one flick!". And it's true. I bought the pink(?) colour, as you can see on the picture, and I was really satisfied. The colour comes out in one flick indeed! And it stays one for many hours! What I didn't like about this product was that soon, I could feel some granules on it, that were transfered on my lips. And these granules destroyed the colour and the appearance of my lips.
Have you ever tried bourjois lipsticks?
Are you satisfied?
What can I do the next time about the granules?

The pictures are from www.bourjois.com because as I told you, I've lost the lipstick :(

Tips I learned while being late!

When you are in EXTREME hurry and you have no time to wash your hair, you can just use a headband which is stylish and hides you hair, or use a dry shampoo (If you don't own any, baby powder will do its work too for oily hair. Just place the powder like you do with the dry shampoo on your head and then comb it out). As for your make up, just add white eyeshadow under your eyebrow and on the inner corner of your eye, mascara, some lip gloss on the lips, and out of the door! Don't forget your keys!!

Estee Lauder mascara review

Ohhh hello lovelies, how are y'all? I'm sorry I didn't post the last two days but I am so so so exhausted! Apart from the lack of sleep, some health problems and running to university for their mistakes,on Saturday I worked about 5-6 hours, but on Sunday (drums please) almost 20 hours. I only had a break for one hour, which wasn't really a break. But today I received my payment and it was worth it. I think!
Anyway, today I'm here with a review of the mascara I am using right now. It's by*Estee Lauder* and it's called Sumptuous Bold Volume Lifting Macara. I got a sample of this mascara from a magazine and my review is based on this.
Let's start with the package. It comes in the classic, round-shaped tube and my sample has enough quantity in it (1 OZ, 2.8ml ). The tube is blue as you can see but on the site it's all gold, however it's the same product. Check it *here*
The brush is thin and not very thick and it has small "hair" between. It's great for applying mascara all over your eye lashes at once, even on your smaller and thinner lashes. The formula is very good and it can easily be removed, even with a wet tissue. It doesn't smudge and it lasts for many many hours (I was wearing it on Sunday and it was fine!)
The product promises daringly full, sensuously curved, all-out seductive lashes and my opinion on this: absolutely true. It gives my lashes length, volume and they seem more curved. And I don't know if it's all me or my high expectations, but I see my lashes stronger and longer after using this product for a few months.
It is kind of expensive-you can buy it online: €19.50 or $27. Greek girls pay attention as I saw on google that here it is sold for €23.50. It's not a huge difference, but it's an already overpriced product. 
All and all, I highly recommend this mascara to you, and if you have used it, I would love to know what you think! (Pictures below)
What's your favourite mascara?
How was your weekend and Monday?
Have fun!


  
The pictures are not about the same eye, but above is what my lashes look without mascara (boo) and below they are after one coat of mascara. I ensure you the result is the same on both of my eyes :P

UPDATE: After a comment from my friend  *Blushing Loves, I have to say I'm sorry for some blurry photos. They are taken from my mobile phone, because I lost the charger of my digital camera. I will try to replace them soon!

My 'five minutes' look!

Today I'm gonna show you my favourite make up look that I usually have on when I go for a coffee or at the cinema! First of all I use this brush:
 
and after applying my concealer (review coming soon!) I start putting on the eyeshadows. I use the Glamorous brown palette.
First of all, I use the lighter shade (1) all over my eyelid and I add more under they eyebrow and in the middle of my lid.
Then I apply the the light brown shade (3) on my lid too, and above the brown area I add some more of the (1) shadow to highlight again the brows and my eye.


For the end, I just add some pencil eyeliner on the top of my eyes, on the outer corner, and some of it on the bottom lashes. I finish the look with mascara (review coming soon!).


Do you like it?
What is your favourite '5 minutes' look?
What are your plans for the weekend?
Till Monday,
Lots of kisses and hugs
