HOTD there such a thing as Hair Of The Day? Well, if not, I just created it.

Originally I have straight hair, but whenever I have time, I love to put in my 'house wife' curlers (this is what my husband and my sis call over night so I can create some flowy, curly looks or an updo the next day.
If you would like to know how I did this look, let me know, and I will do a tutorial:) eye makeup yet...sorry, its still

Makeup Haul: NYX, Maybelline, Malu Wilz

Malu Wilz Soft Color Gloss #46:
A very nice soft pink shade that is great by itself for a natural look, or over any matte or frosty lipstick. It has a sticky consistency if you are not into sticky lipglosses, you probably won't like this one.

Color Perfection Luxe Gloss #760:
I would compare it to OCC lip tars. Color: cherry red. One word that descibes it: Intense!!!

Maybelline Wet Shine Diamonds Liquid #45 Jewels 'n Berries:
A great super super shiny gloss, that looks at first red, but on the lips it just shimmers in the lite, like you really have diamonds on your lips:) Great gloss. I reccomend it to those of you out there who love to glow.

Swatches are in the same order as the glosses.

NYX Ultra Pearl Mania in LP11 Baby Pink Pearl and LP12 Purple Purle:
They are highly pigmented as you can see on the swatches. I just used them on bare skin with no foundation under it.

Swatches are in the same order as the pearl pigments.

NYX Eye/Eyebrow Pencil #927 Acid Green:
Very intense and long lasting true acid green color. says eye/eyebrow pencil...I don't think I will use it too much on my brows, but you never know with me;)

Jay Anne

Shoe Addiction: Sandals

I saw these babies at a little botique, and instantly thought "it would be a sin leaving it there" :)

I love the details. It is versatile, since it has black, brown, dark red, blue and eggshell colors as well, and it's very comfy. They are kind of a mix between bohemian and gladiator sandals.
It looks great with skirts, dresses, skinny jeans and wide top...What do you guys think?

Shoe Addiction: Yay or Ney? :)

Take Care,

Pretty in Pink: Rimmel: Sweet Heart Nail Polish

I know it might sound 'too Barbie' ... but pink makes me happy:)
I was told once, that my birth stone is the rose quartz, and when I saw this polish, it instanlty reminded me of the rose quartz pendant I have.

The Rimmel 296 Sweet Heart polish is a nice baby pink with tiny glitters in it.

I am wearing two coats and no top coat.

Mini Haul: Accessories

While I am spending some time in EU finishing my aesthetician school, I figured I gotta check out some stores here:)

I found a few cute bracelets and rings and one pair of earrings at a C&A store.
They were all between $4-10.

Please excuse the bandage on my hand.. I got tendonitis in my right wrist ... and unfortunately I am right handed :(
This is why I haven't posted any new makeup looks lately...I hope it is gonna heal soon, since my board exam is coming up in a week!
Not to mention that I can't wait to play around with MAKEUP!!!

The bracelts came in a set..a coral/wood and a pinkish one.

Soo, what do you lovlies think?
I am in love with the little rose ring:)

Take Care,
Jay Anne

Review: Bourjois Vitamin Enriched Toner

A great drugstore toner/makeup removal product from France.
I have been using this product for the last few months (as you can tell, by the amount missing), and am very satisfied with it. I usually use it once a day in the evening to cleanse my skin or wash of excess makeup.
First, I was a bit sceptical because of the is a quite strong fruity smell...and I don't like anything with 'perfume' in it.
Retails for around $10.95 (Amazon price) for a 8.4 fl.oz bottle.

It cleans skin gently and leaves it smooth and soft.
Does not dry out my normally dry skin.
Like I mentioned, I don't like it when a cream, toner...any kindda product smells to intense.
It says it is for all skin types...well, I usually prefer when they make separate stuff for dry or oily skin.

What it promises:

It refreshes, cleans and completes make-up removal for a glowing complexion, and the citrus fragrance brings you an invigorated feeling.

Tested under dermatological control, it is gentle because it contains no alcohol and is suitable for all skin types.

Bourjois' tip

When used with fresh cleansing milk, vitamin toner revitalizes the skin.
It is also perfect for women who don't wear make-up but simply want to freshen up in the morning or the evening.

Bourjois' cleansing range: There are five products in the lineup: Fresh Cleansing Milk, Vitamin Enriched Toner, Express Eye Makeup Remover, Foaming Cleansing Cream and Express Cleansing Wipes.

I hope you enjoyed the review.

Take Care,

Jay Anne
