Lush Comforter Bubble Bar


I picked up this bubble bar myself, but it was part of my mom's Christmas present for me. My friend gave me The Comforter Shower gel, and i fell in love with the smell. And i mainly got this bar because of it's scent. It mostly smells like black currant, which is not something i usually like, but with a mixture of fruits the bar smells so good! I couldn't resist buying it.

This is actually first bubble bar i've tried from lush, before i only used bath bombs. And i expected the bar to be enough only for one bath, but i crumbled a little piece, less than third part, and it made the entire bath full of bubbles.



I'm so pleased with how little you need for one time! No need to say that my whole bathroom smelled amazing. It's also supposed to make water purple, but i used it with other bath bombs, so the colour wasn't purple. Lying in a bath with Comforter felt so calming, i was fully relaxed. This is exactly what one needs after a rough day. From now on this might be one of my favorite lush products!

Have you tried this bubble bar or any other lush products? Please give me some recommendations and reviews!

Sephora Beauty Blender


  I've wanted to try a beauty blender for ages! I just couldn't find it anywhere i live. I don't ever use brushes for my foundation or concealer, so i've always used my fingers for it. But i get really grossed out to put the rest of my makeup with some foundation remains on my hands. And every time i put foundation and concealer i had to get up and wash my hands. I know it's not that big of a deal, but it is really annoying if it's something you have to do every day, especially when in a rush. Back to the point, i've got a beauty blender from Sephora brand two months ago and i've been using it ever since.

  Do i even need to point out the convinience of that way of applying foundation and concealer? Life changing! I use this blender to apply pretty much everything that can possibly be applied with it.

With the round side i apply:
  • Face primer (i love Baby Skin by Maybelline)
  • Foundation
  • Spot concealer
  • Benetint from Benefit as blusher
And i use the pointy side for:
  • Undereye concealer
  • Eyeshadow primer
  • Highlighter
  My makeup routine has changed so much in terms of convinience, and the best part of using a beauty blender for me personally is that i don't have to wash my hands 30 times while doing my makeup. And also my foundation and concealer look so much better applied with the sponge, much more natural.
  Now, let's talk about this particular blender. As i mentioned, this is the first one i've ever tried, but i love it a lot. It's very soft and gentle with my skin, makes my foundation look flawless. Though, i've noticed that i use a bit more foundation comparing to how much i would if applied with my fingers. But that's okay, it's worth it. I also really like that weird line in the middle of the blender that separates the foundation and concelaer part. That would come in very handy if your concelarer is a lot lighter than your foundation. 
  The only thing i don't like is that the pointy side is a bit too small and it's not perfectly convinient to use in the corners of my eyes. But that's not a problem for me at all. 
Lots of love, 
Dasha

NYX Mineral Finishing Powder



  Today i want to talk about one of my newest purchases - NYX 'Set It & Don't Fret It" Matte Finishing Powder. As it is pointed out on the bottle, the powder is mineral, which i like. Ever since i got it, i've been using it every single day. I apply it with my kabuki brush from EcoTools that i got on Iherb two yers ago. Works great, by the way.

Why I Love The Powder
  • The milling is very fine. And the texture of the powder is silky
  • It isn't noticable on my face. I apply it in the morning and then i forget i even have it on. I don't feel it at all, and it doesn't make me look caky 
  • It mattifies my skin and makes it look perfect. With no exagguration - P.E.R.F.E.C.T.
  • It looks as if it was ivory color, but when i apply it, it gives me no colour at all - just finishes off my face makeup
  • Stays on all day. Obviously, it wears off throughout the day a little bit - as any powder would do - but it still looks good in the evening
  I honestly don't even have anything bad to say about the product, i'm in love. Truly. Madly. Deeply. (haha see what i did there?;) Highly recommend. It's actually the best drugstore powder i've tried!
  By the way, have you tried this particular one or any powder by NYX? Tell me what you think! And i would love to hear your recommendations about NYX products i should try next. I just discovered this brand, and i'm slowly falling in love with it!
