This blog is mostly about makeup, so you might not know, but for the longest time I've been a huuuge fan of Vivienne Westwood and her designs! <33 So much attitude and style <3 I just wanted to share my favourite things fr autumn/winter that are appearing on her website now! LOVES IT!

This is Vivienne Westwood Anglomania Cloud Scarf in Pink/Mustard, Vivienne Westwood Anglomania Butterfly Coat Grey/Red and cute Melissa/Vivienne pumps! I am loving the scarf and the coat!

I also looove the print on this Vivienne Westwood Anglomania Twister Cloud Cardigan. And I love it in grey too!

And this is just so summery and fresh:

blue: nail polishes and cloudless skies

Ahh, I am back from work trip! It was a lot of fun, but also long 4 days! You know how even not sleeping in your own bed makes you tired..? Even if a trip was fun, it was also work at the same time! :) I absolutely loved Wroclaw though, such a beautiful city! I need to visit it again and go sighseeing more :) It is in south-west Poland.

interesting sculptures! they are on the other side of the road too! 

The weather was wonderful too. 

I came back home to a pleasant surprise - my eBay nail polish order arrived while I was away! I got 2 OPI nail polishes, 2 China Glaze polishes and one top coat Seche Vite - I heard it is good, so I wanted to try! :D

The colors I got are:

- OPI, Princesses Rule! a sheer sparkly pink
- China Glaze, Temptation Carnation, peachy beige with pearl shine to it
- OPI, Russian Navy, deep navy blue with pink/purple tiny glitter, which is not too visible on nails, but I loooove this color!
- China Glaze, For Audrey, which is a gorgeous pastel mint color <333 it is a dupe for CHANEL`s Nouvelle Vague
BTW, I saw summer CHANEL nail polishes today and they totally have a color like OPI Russian Navy in the collection, double score! 8D Later had sushi with mom and sister. BTW, I need to catch up on mode gyaru posts on Universal Doll! <33 And all the blogs! :D 

Pretty colors! :D

first MAC eyeshadow in my collection! and sea side~

Hey guys! Long time no blog! ^^*
I found this amazing store in one underground passage in Warsaw, where they sell so many cute shoes and they are cheap! 8D Those were 75pln, which is around 23usd! :D They were also liked by guys xD I will get some flats from there too. Secret shoe store :)

Cosme news, last time  I went shopping I also bought Duraline from INGLOT and used it once to create a dramatic blue eyeliner look, and once to make a more subtle day time look, lighter blue under bottom lashes. :) It lasted all day and looked cute - w with something like Duraline, I can have tons of colored eyeliners in one product (well, two, including th 88 shadow palette or other eyeshadow).
My previous haul, eBay lashes, Duraline from INGLOT and my first ever MAC eyeshadow, PHLOOF! and a palette, because it turns out it is cheaper to get the eyeshadows without the plastic and the palette. :o Unfortunately, the 3 empty spaces invite you to buy more more more MAC shadows, which is bad bad bad...! xD But I was passing by a MAC store today and literally covered half my face and eyes with a hand and did a 180 turn and made myself not even go inside, because I know I would buy SOMETHING, even if I don`t need anything specific now. ;)

BTW, if you don`t want to buy a MAC eyeshadow in the plastic box, they come in flat paper packaging like this. ↑↑↑ It is already magnetic so it just jumps into the palette and stays there. Probably it would also fit into onther palletes as well. ^^*

The eyeshadow, PHLOOF!, is what the Makeup Artist showed to me when I asked for a highlighter - it has a bit of shimmer to it and is really natural and works so well! I love the quality of this eyeshadow. The color too.  In the pan it looks like frosted beige kind of color, I asked if this wasn`t too dark?, but the colro is just perfect. :) 
The ingriedients.

I am going on 3 day long kind of delegation, first time on such a long delegation with most of my coworkers... D: I think it will be fun, but it will be work, in new enviroment, omg, wish me luck! I bought a new OL friendly skirt to give myself more good energy. xD (Right, I did it because I had free time on my hands xD I need a boyfriend to stop me from compulsive shopping xDD)

In the mean time, here are some photos from when I went to the Polish sea side, earlier this month! :D

we took this ride xDD super fun and a tiny bit scary xD
going to the sea side was sooooo relaxing <3333

I stole this TAGged post from Alex, there will be a lot of text, so here is an old purikura for distraction. xD I looked completely different then, had loooong blonde hair. The girl with her hair back is my yougner sister. And some random dudes, those pics were taken when the 4 of us went out clubbing in Seoul xDD Anyway

TAG: 40 Questions


♥ How many times do you wash your face daily?

Twice a day, morning and evening, but every morning I usually wash my face twice (with the same or different facewash) and in the evening first I take off my makeup with cleansing oil, then wash my face and if I feel like it I will wash my face one more time. xDD

♥ What skin type do you have? (dry,oily,combo)

Dry, but it’s dry because I am on accutane type acne treatment – before I had mixed skin type, and after I finish the treatment I expect to have normal skin.

♥ What is your current facial wash?

HADALABO Gokujun Hyaluronic Acid Face Wash Foam, MISSHA cleansing oil, La Roche-Posay Effaclar face wash, KANEBO Blanchir Superior face soap, some AA brand face wash, etc. The list goes on… ;)

♥ Do you exfoliate?

Since my skin went dry I rarely use scrub…. Almost never. Before I used to like LUSH’s Dark Angels and Herbalism (mixed together, that’s perfect for mixed skin types!)

♥ What brand do you use?
Look above

♥ What moisturizer do you use?
Embryolisse, Missha Choboyan relaxing cream, Vitacreme b12, etc, etc. Recently I want to repurchase CHANEL’s Hydramax+ cream, because I loved it~ The smell is so nice (*_*)

♥ Do you have freckles?

I think I have a couple super pale on top of my nose, but since I always use makeup with high SPF and sun block they are practically invisible now. If I went tanning they would appear I think. :)

♥ Do you use eye cream?
Yes, Estee Lauder in the small brown jar. I used Clinique eye creams before and they are good as light around the eye moisturizers.

♥ Do you or did you have acne prone skin?
Unfortunately I did! Since I was 15 I always had some acne, sometimes more, sometimes less, and I went through all kinds of treatments, even hormones and antibiotics, and after coming back from Japan had a super bad acne attack and my dermathologist advised me to go on a drug similar to Accutane. Now my skin looks perfect, except the fact that it’s dry, but I hope the results last!

♥ Did you ever have to use Pro-activ?
No. I think it might me too drying for people who don’t have super oily skin. D:


♥ What foundation do you use?

Hahah, damn, writing this entry on lunch break at work, I don’t remember all the things I have at home. xD I use a couple, I love bb creams, and I use Missha Oriental Herbs BB cream and am recently testing some MAC foundations. Used to use REVLON fluid foundation for many years and I still think it’s good – but I am always looking for an even better one! ;)

♥ How about concealer?
Currently I use Makeup for Ever’s HD Invisible Cover Concealer. Before I used MAC’s select moisturecover (MUFE is superior) and Missha concealer (good but heavy coverage)

♥ Do you know your undertone color?
I think I am yellow.

♥ What do you think of fake eyelashes?
Hahah, don’t even get me started, LOVE THEM!!! 8D

♥ Did you know that you are supposed to change your mascara every 3 months?
I know.

♥ What brand of mascara do you use?
Currently, Helena Rubinstein Lash Queen Feline Extravaganza mascara. I also like L’oreal Telescopic black mascara.

♥ Sephora or MAC?
MAC I think, although I am not a die hard MAC fan.

♥ Do you have a MAC Pro-card?
Haha, no…

♥ What makeup tools do you use in make up application?
Brushes, fingers, applicators that come with eyeshadows, etc

♥ Do you use make-up base/primer for the eyes?
I always just apply foundation on my eyes so I don’t need primer, sometimes I use cream eyeshadow as base :3

♥ For the face?
Yes, currently Laura Mercier Hydrating Foundation Primer. :D Before I used Embryolisse cream (in Japan for some reason it is advertised as a primer lol). Want to try RMK primer.

♥ What is your favorite eyeshadow (color or shade)?
Favorite color would be cream/beige – very basinc eyeshadows for a natural look, ナチューラル盛り!

♥ Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner?
Both and also gel eyeliner, depending on what look I want to achieve :D

♥ How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil?
Hmmmm…. Never? 8D

♥ What do you think of pigment eyeshadows?
I want to try more of them before getting an opinion, but they require more effort, IMO.

♥ Do you use mineral makeup?
Hmmm… I tried Revlon mineral powder, and currently use MAC’s mineralize skinfinish powders, but I wonder, are they arelly 100% minerals? I’m not sure. ;)

♥ What is your favorite lipstick?
Only one?! D: MAC Myth! Perfect nude lipstick! :D

♥ How about lipgloss?
Anything sparkling and super shiny, that also works over a lipstick, I like dazzleglasses, but they are expensive for the small amount. :P

♥ What is your favorite blush to use?
I think MAC Ripe Peach and Azalea Blossom, just because they look great on skin and they are such a pleasure to look at in the container~ Beautiful gradation!

♥ Do you buy your makeup on ebay?
Oh sure, some Korean brands are most accessible from eBay and I get lashes from there, nail polishes not available in Poland, etc. Yup, I like online shopping a lot and I quite often use eBay.

♥ Do you like drugstore makeup?
Hmmm, mostly Japanese drug store brands, but generally, yes! If it works good andis cheap, what’s not to like? :)

♥ Do you go to CCO's? (cosmetic company outlets)
We don’t have them in Poland unfortunately D;

♥ Did you ever consider taking make-up classes?
I would really love to! I don’t want to try to be a pro makeup artist, but I want to learn more and experiment more! :D

♥ Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?
I try not to be :D

♥ Name a makeup crime that you hate?
Dark foundation on face/white skin and the opposite. Hardly no eye makeup, but bottom eyeliner and drawn on brown in the style of “crazy old ladies on the train” D:

♥ Do you like colorful shades of makeup (lipstick,eyeshadow) or neutral ones?
Both! I really started liking super vivid pink lipsticks this year :D

♥ Which celebrity always has great make up?
Japanese celebs :3 MK&A Olsen, Rihanna!

♥ If you could leave the house using just ONE make up item, what would you use?
bb cream <333 if I could sneak it in some mascara too ;)

♥ Could you ever leave the house without any makeup on?
Sure I could, but first of all I LIKE MAKEUP!! So I like to wear it, lol. But I feel a bit insecure with no makeup on.

♥ Do you think you look good even without any makeup on?
Yes, acceptable, natural. I look very young without makeup though and some redness in my face shows, so I look like I’m blushing all the time. xD

♥ In your opinion, what is the BEST makeup line?
I don’t know… too many to choose from and all brands have great and bad things.

♥ What do you think of Makeup??
I really really like it 8DD My friends laughed AT me for tal king too much about skincare and makeup so I decided to start this blog where I can blab about makeup as much as I want and noone can tell a thing. xD And also I can exchange comments with wonderful girls in the blogosphere and learn! 8D I love makeup! :D

work outfit and new fake lashes! and some other stuff! I got Duraline!

I think I never posted an outfit here and I`m not sure I want to or should, but here`s an outfit from today actually!  :0 I took this in the bathroom, sorry ;) On bottom I wore office friendly black shorts from ZARA and black opaque stirrups - I am not a fan of ass almost showing and leggings only, especially on ON days. D: Nice ZARA shorts are safe and look good too! The long top and the jacket are from VERO MODA, the necklace is Lip Service, the glasses are knock off huge ass Ray Bans.

Sorry for the face. Just simple makeup with no fake lashes and the lightest shade from VISEE Brillliance Eyes A-2 palette and MAC Phloof! (I bought my first MAC eyeshadow ever, omg!!) Myth lipstick and Sugarrimmed dazzlegloss on lips. Doesn`t show in this photo, but KATE blush called Cheek Color in PK-1 - really great for the dolly pink cheeks, like Tsubasa has. And that topped with MAC Porcelain Pink mineralize skinfinish which I looooove, it gives a perfect pink glow! <3 

Also, after seeing a post by Shmuberry about fake lashes from eBay (I swear there was another post, I just can`t find it) I ordered winged cat-eye type lashes and simple cross type lashes, but quite full and volumey. Of course they are the famous eBay lashes for about 2,5$ including shipping. xD Here are some photos and also comparison with MAC #7 lashes!
cat-eye type lashes

natural cross type lashes
natural cross type / cat-eye type / MAC #7 (sorry got to clean them)
length-wise the MAC lashes are the most curled and they are quite long, but because of the strong curl the length is about the same as the eBay lashes.
View from the side, to show lenght
The MAC lashes have the softest band and lashes, but honestly the eBay lashes are not bad either! And you get 10 pairs for 2,5$, which is hard to believe, and it also means you don`t regret cutting them up into all kind of custom lashes and experimenting. The cat-eye type would be perfect cut up and used as point lashes in the outer eye corner for a sultry look! 8D

I also bought the famous Duraline from INGLOT - a fluid that help you create waterproof products - mostly recommeneded for use with eyeshadows to make liquid & waterproof eyeshows or eyeliners! Here I use a blue eyeshadow from my 88 shadows palette from eBay with Duraline to make a cool blue eyeliner! Applied it with a brush :) Then I added some Urban Decay sparkling glitter eyeliner and cat-eye fake lashes! I think I will wear this for a party or sth, colored eyeliner are cool for summer, right? And now I can make any eyeliner color I want! 8D Duraline is only 19pln, so cheap! 8D Will make another post about it.
The wonderful, beautiful and talented (and young! she just graduated high school) polish beauty blogger Alex already made a post about Duraline from INGLOT, so check it out if you are interested! Here is the post. But also check out her blog, her makeups are amazing! I wish I had a tiny percent of this talent! <3

Also, sorry for the super long post, but here are makeup and beauty inspirations:
Super cute pink lips on Tsubasa, found at Universal Doll blog! <3

Awesome blue eyeline/eyeshadow on Maichi! :D Found at PinkSugarIchigo tumblr!

new hair

I got an image change! 
I changed my hair color, basically, lol. And the weird thing is noone even notices! :o My friends were like "Oh, did you cut your hair?", "No, I went from blonde to brown hair", "Oooooooh, now I see! Wow I didn`t notice!"
Hahah, oh well.
At least I can wear red lipstick now (I am wearing my mom`s Cream in my coffe from MAC)! I am also wearing MAC #7 fake lashes in those pictures is you are curious. (Missha oriental herbs bb cream with some mineralize skinfinish natural powder in medium)

Some real life stuff? Thursday was a day off here in Poland and I got friday off too, so I can enjoy a long weekend! <33 Unfortunately I caught a cold on wednesday, as a sudden rain storm got me all wet in a couple second - I didn`t even have time to take out my umbrella from my bag - it was raining so hard. D:
But, I am still so happy about my long weekend! I went to see SATC2 with a friend and korean restaurant, yum yum... the movie is hmm fun in the beginning, but it`s kind of like they forgot to make up a proper plot ;) Today I had to go to see a doctor and do some chores, and cleaned the house, made dinner for my sister and booked a train to Gdansk - I am going to spend Saturday and Sunday by the seaside in Poland!!! :DDD Overnight train by myself, omg. Wish me a happy weekend and I hope you have a great one too <333 I hope my cold goes away! I am taking my maxi dress to the sea side! <3
I leave you with one more shot of my mug ;p
