Top 5 Maybelline Products

I'm back with another list of my favorite products, but this time i'm going to talk about maybelline. I love this brand so much, this is definatelly one of my favorites, the range of products is pretty good and quality is nice too + it's a drugstore brand, which means good price. What's not to like? Alright, let's get started! :)

1) I feel like everyone who loves makeup, knows about these lipbalms. Because they are so good! Yes, staying power is not so great, but it's a lipbalm, it's not suppost to stay on lips all day. There's not much to say. Love it.

2) My absolute favorite is this mascara. I've tried a lot, you can trust me on this. Almost all my favorite mascaras are from maybelline, but, to my opinion, this one is the best so far. It makes my eyelashes super long and beautiful, it also give a nice volume. Definitely my number 1!

3) This is one of my latest purchases, and it's already in my favorites. Very pigmented and the colors are gorgeous!

4) Concealer + Highlighter in one tube? Yes, please! This isn't my favorite concealer out of all i've tried, but the second one for sure. Just because i have huge dark circles under my eyes on study days, so i need a little bit more coverage that this gives, but still an amazing one, especially if to use this with my next favorite.

As you can see, i use it a lot:)
5) Another popular maybeline product. I have two favorite colors, although i like the pink one more. Great pigmintation and staying power, but i use it with my base anyway

V-Day Date, Makeup, and Outfit Ideas

Today i would like to share with you my Valentine's Day date ideas. I'm also going to show you what i would wear on dates like these and my make up. I worked really really hard on this post, so i do hope you will enjoy it!

1) Invite your Valentine to your house. If you feel like being home and not going outside, just invite your soulmate to your house. Cook a nice dinner together, it would make you even closer, for sure. While your food is cooking, you can have a pillow fight to your special song or just dance to it. Then eat the dinner in handmade tent. Turn all the lights off, apart from a flashlight. After all this you can just watch a bunch of your favorite movies or just talk.

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins (You Can Make Them Vegan!)

Since it's a weekend, i decided to write a recipe post, so you would have time to make these muffins if you want to. These cupcakes are versatile. You can easily make them vegan, no eggs or milk used! And this isn't 100% healthy, but it's definitely a healthier version of normal chocolate chip cupcakes

Cupcakes, Muffins, Chocolate, Food
Today we're making these!
  • Flour - 3/4 or 1 full cup
  • Sugar (i used brown, but you can also use stevia) - 1/2 cups or 2tb spoons - depends on how sweet you want your cupcakes to be
  • Cocoa powder - 3 tbs
  • Salt - 1/4 tea spoon
  • Baking powder - 1/2 ts
  • Water (you can use milk, but i just wanted to reduce calorie, still tasted amazing) - 1/2 cup
  • Oil of your choice - 75 ml (which is about 15 ts)
  • Vanilla extract - 1 ts
  • Chocolate chips - 1/2 cup
  • One ripe banana
