My lip balm addiction


My lipbalm addictionHello, my name is Joana and I’m a lip balm addict.
This is not my average blog post, but since I live surrounded by my beloved (and essential) lip balms, I though it would be nice to share it with my readers. This is my current collection — I guess we can call it like that — of five different lip treatments, each one used in different occasions and for different purposes. Continue reading


Naked 3 – the rose addiction

Rose gold yes, this trend is still strong with me.
My newest addiction to my rose gold collection is the Naked 3 – the latest in the Naked department. When it came out I knew it was the right palette for me, but took me a while to finally make up my mind and go get it. I usually stick with the basics when it comes to eyeshadow (guess what? Naked Basics is my favorite thing in the world!) so buying 12 eyeshadows at once was kind of overwhelming for me.

I’m learning what looks I can pull of with it, and so far I have 5 favorite shadows:
#2 Dust – with little pieces of glittery gold
#3 Burnout – the perfect light rose gold shade
#5 Buzz – shimmery pink
#7 Nooner – matte, almost taupe rose
#9 Factory – deep & shimmery, with a purple/brownish tone

The palette also comes with 4 primer samples, and although each one can be use several times, I’m saving those for the long nights out.

Are you still into rose gold as much as I am? Leave me a comment with your opinion about this post, and whether if you would like to see more about makeup products or even a tutorial?..
