Since I started joining Youtube last year, I have been purchasing and experimenting more now with make-up, skin care, food and clothing than ever before. Because of my curiosity I have been trying out a few products that I wouldn’t normally buy it’s either expensive or it’s not a worth of try. But! hey!! I’m not a compulsive buyer ha! I know my limitations whenever I buy something I usually search first all the reviews, pro’s and cons online before I purchasing it. I really make sure that I really need it before I buy it! Anyhow high way! Lets go back into the business!!
My First Kicks purchase of the year!
Recently, I noticed that my lips gets dry so fast using my matte H&M lipstick 💋 even if I applied lip balm on it still makes my lips dry! I love my matte lipstick (but the issue of drying is irritating) so I said to myself that I need to buy lip primer for me to enjoy my matte lipstick!! (searching for best lip primer in town Mac prep+lip primer to the rescue)
The box full of happiness hehe 😍
For the past few weeks , I often find myself browsing on kicks.se because I’m planning to buy lip primer from Mac and I ended up buying also one Mac Velvet teddy lipstick too hahaha! I didn’t go overboard but I managed to treat myself a little (guys I love lipstick so much so bear with me😉 ) I’m so happy that I bought it too!
To those of you who don’t know what Kicks is – It is popular beauty store here in Sweden where they offer popular drugstore brands as well as lot of high-end make-up brands. They sell expensive perfume too and skin care products! Name it and they have it LoL.
This is what I purchased Mac prep+lip primer & velvet teddy matte lipstick
However, the Mac prep+lip primer is a little bit expensive too and it cost 180 sek around (1115 Php), just be careful when twisting it because it’s so delicate that you can easily ruin it (based on my experience). The texture kind of feels like you are putting on a thick lip balm on your lips but its not greasy at all. Overall it smooths out my lips and the smell is not so strong which I really really like!
August 📝 is our last month of SUMMER here in Sweden. Yep it is real! Swedish fall start from September to October so it only means that dark season rather COLD season will come pretty soon ❄ . In this time of the year also we are really prone to have a dry skin from head to toe especially on our lips 💋 which I really don’t like at all. Luckily, we can take care of our lips now with some homemade lip scrub 😉 so why buy expensive lip scrub if you can make it at home right? just explore your kitchen.
While it is easy to notice dry skin on our body like our legs and arms and even our scalp, we often forget that our lips are skin too. Our lips need to exfoliate, treated and moisturize too because when cold and dry weather is ON, our lips are completely dry and easily become chapped and rough.
Your homemade lip scrub can be flavored to your own specifications or whatever fruits you have at home. Since I have Kiwi at home I decided to use it as a flavor of my lip scrub 😉. Also, I search online that Kiwi is a great natural exfoliant.
Lets Start Making KIWI Lip Scrub:
You only need three ingredients to make your own homemade lip scrub
🌻 Sugar (normal sugar)
🌻 Coconut oil (Kung Markatta Kokosolja Virgin)
🌻 Kiwi (you can use half of it or it depends if you only want to make small amount of lip scrub)
Just mix them all together until well combined (mashed your kiwi, coconut oil and sugar)
Omg! four days to go and it’s my BIG day!! 🙂 I’m a bit nervous and stress. Decorating and finding a nice idea that I can added up on my big day is really a mind-boggling!. I keep on searching and searching over the net on how can I make my own wedding giveaways and I just wanted to share to you guys what I did 😊.
I called it DIY (Do It Yourself) simple and not so expensive wedding favors, take note!! it’s personalized favors that I did all by myself hahaha…The cookie I use here is homemade. I baked it and yeah I’m proud of it and it turned out good and tasty 🙂
Anyway, doing this kind of project allow us to create our own personalized favors and touches that can be applied in any way we can imagine specially for our special day, for shower, a party or whenever. All you need are some basic items and a LITTLE CREATIVITY.
How sad is it when you accidentally leaves your favorite lipstick 💄 inside the car and discover that it was melted due to the extreme heat. Did you also experience that? Me too!! twice 😂 So what else I can do is to buy a new one 😊
Luckily! I was able to drop by to a local H&M store here in my place to look around and then I saw that they had a little cosmetic stand so I went over to look for new nice shade of lipstick which I badly need one! After a couple of minutes swatching all the shades they have I managed to find a colour that I couldn’t resist taking home and for only 99.9 SEK Swedish krona I was able to get this H&M Matte lip colour in the shade of Lennox Lounge.
