Spring Flowers : Bourjois, Maybelline,Essence, Shoes

Happy Easter to those celebrating it.

Weather has turn to the warm side in Moscow this weekend and it is time to dump away the winter jackets to something more light and airy. Let's hope the weather stays as it is through the next week.

This is going to be another haul post.
I stopped by Riv Gauche and they were having offer on their Borjois Shine Edition lipsticks. We know how pricey Bourjois' lipsticks can be for a drugstore brand. I wouldn't pay for it if it were on full price.

Taking advantage of the offer, I bought two of the shine edition lipstick. The one in the red tube is from Maybelline.

The first colour I got is in 22 Famous Fuchsia.

Famous Fuchsia is a straight up fuchsia.

Due to the high shine formulation, the colour isn't as bold as it is in the tube but it is shows great pigmentation.
It gives the lips a bright pink glow.

The other colour I got is 24 Rose xoxo

Rose xoxo is a rose pink with silver shimmers.

Everytime I go to the shop, I would keep going back to the Bourjois stand to swatch this colour. This colour is the colour that caught my eyes the most from the Bourjois Shine Edition Collection.
Previously when I went to the shop, there isn't any offer on this colour but since there's offer for this colour now, I took advantage of the offer and pick this colour.

The pigmentation isn't as great as Fiery Fuchsia but it gives the lips a nice rosy glow. The shimmers do transfer to the lips. So to those who doesn't like anyform of shimmers or glitters, I do not recommend this lipstick. To those looking for a high shine, moisturizing lipstick, this is the one to look for.

The texture can be compared to the Revlon Lip Butters.

Maybelline Moisture Extreme Lipstick in Pink Beige

I fell in love with this colour when I swatched it. It is such a beautiful nude.
Nude usually washes most people out but this nude is a MLBB nude. It has the correct amount of pinks and browns which doesn't wash people out but enhances. It is extremely gorgeous.
This will be more of a MLBB colour on fair tone girls but girls with medium tones, this would be an extremely flattering nude.

The formulation is great. It glides on the lips like butter. It is a luxurious balmy feel, it feels very high end on the lips which is unexpected for an affordable lipstick.
Most shades are either too metallic or shimmery which aren't of my liking but I have my eyes on the colour 'Windsor Rose'. I would go back to pick up that colour.

I stopped by the beauty shop near the Metro and they have Essence Metal Glam Eyeshadow which I have been wanting in stock and unswatched.
I got so happy and just picked this baby home.

Essence Metal Glam Eyeshadow in 03 Frosted Apple.

Frosted Apple is a shimmery and metallic baby pink with gold shimmers.

The eyeshadow glides very easily like butter and it is very pigmented., the colour payoff is of a pressed pigment.
I would say it is very great beauty budget buy. If you are looking for cheap eyeshadows with easy application and great colour payoff. This is the eyeshadow to go to.
I am definitely picking up more shades from the Metal Glam line when the 15% off offer kicks in.

It's spring, it's time for me to get some new shoes to kick spring.
After trying from many shops, I finally settled with a pair of boots and a pair of ballet flats from Bershka.

Brown suede boots.

They are very casual looking and really cute. The brown matches my skin tone very well and the design of the boots elongates my short limbs which make my whole body proportion look better.

The design is plain but the buckle at the side of the boots does add an accent of the boot.

Lace ballet flats

I love this flats so much! it is just too cute. I just knew that I had to get it when I saw it.
The lace details just adds on a girly look to everything worn.

A closer look in the lace.
It is so pretty, I am so in love.
