January beauty favorites

January 2017 Beauty favorites
Even though February is slowly coming to an end, I just realized that I have not published my January beauty favorites. Last month, eight products caught my attention and as per usual, read more about each and every one of them below.

LV
Kaut arī Februāris iet jau uz otro pusi, tikai tagad atcerējos, ka neesmu publicējusi savus janvāra skaistumkopšanas favorītus! Pagājušajā mēnesī tie bija astoņi. Par katru no tiem kā jau ierasts, lasi zemāk.
Urban Decay Full Spectrum eye shadow palette review

From time to time I love experimenting with colours and creating colourful and bold makeup looks. In this matter, the eye shadow palette for sure is amazing and offers a wide range of beautiful, bright eye shadows. You can find both matte and shimmer eye shadows in it. I, personally, use this palette together with a neutral shade eye shadow palette as the beige, taupe and light brown shades work perfectly as transition colours. I certainly recommend this palette if you are searching for something bold and colourful and if you’d like to add some colour to your daily life. You can see my makeup looks using this palette here and here.

Ik pa laikam man patīk eksperimentēt ar krāsām un izveidot krāsainus, spilgtus grimus. Šādā ziņā šī palete noteikti ir izcila, jo piedāvā skaitu, spilgtu toņu daudzveidību. Paletē ir gan matētie, gan spīdīgie toņi. Es personīgi šo paleti lietoju kopā ar neitrālāku krāsu paleti, jo bēšie, brūnganie toņi ir labi piemēroti acu ēnu pludināšanai. Noteikti iesaku šo paleti, ja meklē kaut ko spilgtu un krāsainu, un vēl savai ikdienai piešķirt košumu! Mani grima tēli izmantojot šo paleti redzami šeit un šeit
H&M Radiant Face palette review

I have already told you about the H&M face palette and you might have spotted in some of my makeup looks. I would rate H&M Beauty as good, because I have found some stellar products (for example, lipsticks, individual eye shadows, nail polishes etc.), yet I’ve been disappointed by some products as well (foundation, translucent powder, concealer). This face palette for sure falls into the good category as I genuinely like it! I find that the blushes are the best – they have amazing pigmentation and it’s super easy to blend them on the cheeks. I am in love with the third shade and it’s the shade I’ve been using the most. I think that the highlighters are decent and I’ve found a good use of all three of them. I use the first one to highlight my brow bone, the middle one for inner corner highlighting, whereas, the third one I use on the my cheekbones. I am surprised to not see more reviews on this palette as for the friendly price it has, it’s very good!

Par šo paleti jau esmu jums stāstījusi un esiet to redzējuši arī dažos manos grima tēlos. H&M kosmētiku kopumā novērtēju kā labu, jo esmu atradusi patiešām labas lietas, piemēram, lūpu krāsas, acu ēnas un nagu lakas, bet ir lietas, kurās esmu arī vīlusies (tonālais krēms, birstošais pūderis, konsīleris utt.). Šī sejas palete noteikti “iekrīt” labajā kategorijā, jo man patiešām ļoti patīk! Vislabākie ir vaigu sārtumi – tiem ir izcila pigmentācija un tie lieliski pludinās. Vismīļākais ir trešais tonis, to arī lietoju visbiežāk. Izgaismotāji, manuprāt, ir labi un ikdienā lietoju visus trīs – pirmo, lai izgaismotu uzacu kaulu, vidējo iekšējos acs kaktiņos, savukārt, trešo uz vaigu kauliem. Brīnos par to, ka neesmu daudz dzirdējusi par šo paleti, jo, manuprāt, priekš savas draudzīgās cenas, tā ir ļoti laba!
RCMA No Colour Powder review

I had to wait for about two months to get my hands on this powder, but I have to say that the waiting part was certainly very worth it. At the end of last year Beauty Bay stocked RCMA products, including the famous No Colour Powder which is a favorite of thousands of Youtube bloggers. I didn’t react fast enough and it was sold out in couple of days, so I was constantly checking Beauty Bay to see when they’ll restock it. Luckily, I did have the chance to buy two of them (right before they became unavailable for my country). After two weeks after making the order I had not received it yet, therefore, I contacted their customer service. They told me that I had to wait 20 business days till I can apply for a refund. So, I waited those 20 business days and contacted them again. I must say that I am very satisfied with their customer service as I received my refund smoothly and without any problems. I just had to fill out a form and that’s it. 
To my surprise three weeks later I received my package! When I was applying for the refund Beauty Bay told me that the issue was with the postal office and that they had sent the package and it was held eithet by customes or at post office. So, my question is: what the hell the post office has been doing with my package for two months?
Anyways, the powder is as amazing as I had heard in the raving reviews. It’s peeerfect for setting your under eyes.

Lai tiktu pie šī pūdera man bija nepieciešams gaidīt aptuveni divus mēnešus, bet ilgās gaidas noteikti attaisnojās. Gada nogalē Beauty Bay internetveikalā bija iespējams iegādāties RCMA zīmola produkciju, ieskaitot daudzu Youtube blogeru favorītu No Colour birstošo pūderi. Pirmajā reizē, kad pūderis parādījās uzreiz to nenopirku, ko noteikti nožēloju, jo tas vija izpirkts vien pāris dienu laikā. Otrajā reizē palaimējās un iegādājos divus iepakojumus šī pūdera, better safe than sorry. Kad aptuveni pēc divām nedēļām no pūdera nebija ne ziņas, ne miņas, aizrakstīju uz Beauty Bay. Diemžēl, man atbildēja, ka man vēl jāgaida līdz tam mirklim, kad kopš pasūtījuma veikšanas brīža būs pagājušas 20 darba dienas. Pēc 20 darba dienām atkal aizrakstīju un te ir jāuzteic Beauty Bay serviss, jo kompensācijas saņemšana bija viegla un salīdzinoši vienkārša. Apmēram trīs nedēļas pēc kompensācijas saņemšanas, saņēmu arī pašus produktus, kas man bija liels pārsteigums, jo biju par to pilnībā aizmirsusi. Kā es uzzināju no Beauty Bay tad šī divus mēnešus ilgā aizkavēšanās ir bijusi Latvijas Pasta pusē. Būtu interesanti uzzināt, ko viņi divus mēnešu darīja ar manu paciņu?
Katrā ziņā pūderis ir tieši tik lielisks cik esmu dzirdējusi atsauksmes par to! Ideāli piemērots, lai “noturētu” konsīleri savā vietā.
ColourPop Lippie Stix Lumiere review

I won’t go into much details about this lipstick as you already might know how much I like it and how qualitative it is! I’ll certainly wait for another free shipping deal at Colourpop and order more lippie stixs as my wish list is growing every week 😊

Par šo lūpu krāsu daudz nestāstīšu, jo ziniet jau to cik ļoti man tā patīk un cik kvalitatīva tā ir. Gaidīšu vēl kādu ColourPop bezmaksas pasta izdevumu piedāvājumu/akciju, lai iegādātos vēl citus toņus, jo manā wishlist saraksts ar katru nedēļu kļūst garāks 😊
H&M lip gloss review

Lately I’ve been more into glosses than matte lipsticks. Maybe it’s because I can’t wait for spring and summer to come. I think that glosses are perfect for the warm and sunny weather. Maybe you already spotted this gloss in this outfit post. I love the fact that this gloss has a light texture, it’s not sticky and the pink undertones make a perfect pout.

Pēdējā laikā aizvien mazāk sāku nēsāt matētās lūpu krāsas un lielāku uzmanību pievēršu lūpu spīdumiem. Iespējams, tāpēc, ka nevaru sagaidīt pavasari un vasaru, kurās lūpu spīdumi, manuprāt, piestāv vislabāk. Šo lūpu spīdumu, jau iespējams ievērojāt šajā tērpa ierakstā. Spīdumam ir ļoti viegla tekstūra un mani visvairāk priecē tas, ka tas nav lipīgs un tas, ka rozā pigments lūpām piešķir skaistu sārtu nokrāsu.
ColourPop Super Shock eye shadow review

Similar to the Lippie Stix, I won’t go into much detailing about this eye shadow either, because you can read more about it here. I’ve worn this eye shadow couple of times already as a standalone and I love how pigmented it is and how long it lasts without creasing. I definitely recommend it!

Līdzīgi kā Lippie Stix, arī par šo acu ēnu dziļās detaļās neizplūdīšu, jo garāku atsauksmi vari lasīt šeit. Šo acu ēnu esmu ļoti daudzas reizes nēsājusi vienu pašu un man ļoti patīk tas cik pigmentēta un noturīga tā ir. Noteikti iesaku!
NYX Liquid Suede lipstick review

NYX had some great deals on sale and as a result I bought a great Liquid Suede trio. I’ve completely fallen in love with the soft, velvety texture that applies so easily. And it lasts throughout the day without drying or cracking my lips.

Uz atlaidēm NYX veikalā iegādājos NYX Liquid Suede lūpu krāsu trio. Mani ir apbūrusi lūpu krāsu maigā, velvetīgā tekstūra, kas perfekti uzklājas uz lūpām un dienas laikā uz tām turas tik pat labi kā jebkura matētā lūpu krāsa. Bet visvairāk man patīk tas, ka tā nesausina lūpas un nesavelk tās smalkās krunciņās.
Maybelline Fit me foundation review

I had heard so many great reviews on this foundation as I am still searching for my perfect foundation, I was excited to try out this one. All in all, I can say that this is a good foundation, though, not perfect. It for sure is the best one yet I’ve found for winter, because it’s very well pigmented and hides all blemishes which are more visible on pale skin. But, even though, I’ve set my face with a powder - my T-zone, the skin around nose and chin gets oily pretty easily. But I must say that this is one of the best foundations I have yet found that can almost deal with my oily skin,

Par šo tonālo krēmu biju dzirdējusi ļoti daudz labu atsauksmju un tā kā pati vēl joprojām esmu sava ideālā tonālā krēma meklējumos, nolēmu pamēģināt arī šo. Kopumā, tonālajam krēmam dodu labu vērtējumu, jo kaut arī tas ir mans ziemas mīļākais tonālais krēms, tas tomēr nav līdz galam ideāls. Man vislabāk patīk tas, ka cik pigmentēts ir šis krēms, tādējādi, man ir iespēja noslēpt visas ādas nepilnības, kas īpaši labi ir redzamas ziemā. Bet, lai arī seju esmu nopūderējusi, dienas laikā tāpat mana āda paliek taukaina T-zonā, ap degunu un uz zoda. Bet šajā ziņā tik un tā, šis tonālais krēms ir viens no labākajiem, kuru esmu lietojusi. 

~With love~
