Max Factor Colour Elixir Giant Pen Stick Passionate Red Review

A while back, I wrote about Max Factor Colour Elixir Giant Pen Sticks and now I've bought one of them, so I can give you my first impressions.

My new beauty is number 35 and named Passionate Red. I chose this one because it's the most pigmented of the bunch and the dark red colour suits the pink undertones of my skin very well.

Here's a swatch of the product (under artificial lightning).

And here's how it looks like on my lips (again, the photo wasn't taken in the best of conditions). The product colours my lips quite nicely and has a tiny gold-like shimmer to it, which makes it especially attractive. The product isn't very moisturising, but it doesn't dry your lips either and you can apply it over lip balm.

I'd give this product 4 of 5 points and will probably buy the hazel one as well. However, I have to give it a go on my lips before buying it. I'm not sure how hazel would fit my lips.

All in all, I recommend buying this one. In Slovenia, you can get it in DM's at 7.25€ which is even less than I estimated based on British prices.

Figs & Rouge Cherry Blossom Hand Cream Review

I was very happy when I saw this product in Slovene stores a month or so ago. So I decided to buy all three hand creams available and I couldn't resist a lip balm as well. Cherry Blossom is the first hand cream of this brand I started using.

The packaging is really cute and I think it's one of the reasons I decided to buy this. The other is great blog reviews of the product. I also liked the tube, which looks like it's made of metal, but actually it's made from some plastic material, so you don't have any trouble when the tube's almost empty. Cherry Blossom has a slight scent, but you have to be really close to be able to smell it, so I was a bit disappointed, because I expected a stronger scent. I also expected the cream to be of somewhat thicker consistency. That's why I actually didn't like it at first. When you apply it, it sinks into the skin rally quickly which was a bit strange at first, because I'm used to heavy creams that leave a film on your hands and need time to sink in. On the other hand, I have doubts on how moisturising this product really is. The nourishing feeling you get disappears quickly, so I vote against repurchasing this. I'd give it 2.5 points form 5.

Moonchild Giveaway

Yaaaaaaaaaay! I've won a giveaway! It was done by Moonchild (be sure to check out her blog) and I was chosen from 214 entries. I was so happy when Moonchild contacted me, since I've never won a giveaway before and I rarely win anything, anyway.

So today, I received my prize by mail. Of course, I had to open it immediately and see if I like the smell and I must say I do. I like perfumes that are warm and deep and Oriflame Amber Elixir Night is just that. Fragrantica states that at the beginning of 2013 Oriflame surprised us with a new fragrance, successor to Oriflame Amber Elixir from 2009. Top notes of Amber Elixir Night offer a blend of bergamot, wild rose and incense providing a dose of mystery and seduction and lead to powdery accords of iris attracting attention in the center of the composition supported by hot, sensual union of amber and Siamese benzoin. The base deepens the composition with woody accords of sandalwood, along with patchouli and intoxicating bourbon vanilla.

I think this'll be great to wear for the cold spring nights outside. So once again... Thank you, Moonchild! I'll definitely be using this a great deal.

I miss spring

It's been quite a while since I last posted something. This is due to my laziness. I miss spring and I urgently need some sun. I think I'll only be happy again when I'm sitting at some cafĂ©, on the porch, drinking cocoa and basking in the sun.
