The Sunday Post - My little love affair with Chanel

Hi Everyone

It's like one in the morning and I am far behind on my stu-dying, so instead of stressing out I decided to do the one thing that relaxes me... blogging..  a little rumble Sunday post.

I wanted to share with you my little love affair with Chanel makeup. I would probably say I was more of a high street/drugstore kind of gal but I do love high-end brands, I have a good selection of high-end make up and last year my addiction started for real, and the brand that I want everything from is Chanel.

I was gifted a Chanel nail polish in Satin Blue and a Chanel lip gloss in 427, I fell in love!

I had to convince myself to get a Chanel lipstick, (only because I have way too many lipsticks) but it took me about 5 minutes and I bought my first one. 

My first Chanel lipstick was the Rouge Allure in Pirate. This is the most perfect red lipstick ever. Pirate is just perfect. No other word to describe this lipstick.
I got it when my sister was in London with me :)
A day before I move back to Iceland, me and Ethan went to Oxford street and had a massive shopping day! and that day I got the Rouge Coco Shine in Saga, it is the perfect every day pink lipstick, I decided that if I could only have one lipstick for the rest of my life this would be it. (and the red one as well, who only has one lipstick)

I love buying new makeup and when I buy more expensive beauty products I like to do it on a special occation. 

The best part about both these lipsticks is that I got both of thm for free! I used my Boots points. :)

I know this is only the start to my little affair with Chanel, there is just something about this brand that really makes me happy!

What is your favorite high-end brand?

Thanks for stopping by :)

I just have to share the prettiest nail polish ever!

Mani-Monday - China Glaze & Topshop dots!

Hi Everyone,

In exactly two weeks I will take my first final exam at Uni! So over the next few weeks there will be a bit quiet here... well I should be studying now but I rather blog.. anyone with the same problem? 

But I had to post my Mani-Monday since there has been few weeks since my nails showed up on my blog :)

Today I am wearing China Glaze in Merry Berry from last years Christmas Collection and Topshop in Heart of Gold. 

I just thought they were a bit festive and I love the China Glaze Merry Berry, it is so shiny and last for ages on my nails.

I used some new dotting tools I got off ebay, I posted a picture of them the other day on my instagram.

I am wearing the Topshop Heart of Gold for my dots there as well!

Thanks for reading this tiny little post :)

FOTD - Cold November Morning ft. Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Smog

Hi Everyone, today was super cold, I am right now at the library and I am just so cold, the days are getting shorter and now it is almost 5 pm and it's already getting dark outside.

I did go to work this morning, only for like two and a half hour and then straight to school but I managed to take couple of photos of my makeup today, so here is my FOTD :)

I know, I look way too serious, don't ask me why haha

Foundation: Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum - This is my second bottle of this foundation, I had a back up of this one and I have been using the Bourjois healthy mix foundation and keeping the Serum foundation un-open, but few days ago I felt like my skin was dry and getting very dull, so I reached for the Helathy Mix Serum. This foundation really makes my skin look great. I will compare both of the Bourjois foundation soon since  I love both of them so much!

Primer - Benefit 'that gal' brightening primer - since my skin was so dull and tired I grabed this mini size that I have, I think this product is okay, it does the job but I'm not sure if I would buy the full size. 

Concealer - Bobbi Brown Corrector in Porcelein Peach, this corrector saves my face most mornings since I have really dark circles,

And to finish off my base I used Soap and Glory, One Heck of a Blot powder :)

Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Smog - I took a old Urban Decay Palette with me today, called Show Pony. Mainly because it has Toasted in it, (the same Toasted that is in the Naked original palette). So when I was about to do my makeup I had like a 'hey this palette has Smog in it' moment. Smog is also in the Original Naked palette and it is a beautiful bronze-brown eyeshadow

For my eyeliner I used Jordana Fabu Liner and my mascara is Maybelline the Falsies Waterproof in extra black.

I have Revlon Kissable Lip Balm Stain in Honey on my lips and for my blush I used  FashionistA blush in Butterscotch, I love this neutral blush, it is so pretty

So that was my quick FOTD on this super cold November morning :)

Cherry Culture Haul

Hi Everyone :)

I was just browsing online and I saw that Cherry Culture has offer on almost every NYX products and then a 25% off NYX products as well at the moment, it ends tomorrow but there are always some sort of offers. The code is NYX2513
Check out Cherry Culture here

Last time when they had NYX on an offer I made an order and I was so happy with the price and how fast the parcel arrived. Here is my late 'little' haul

NYX Eyeshadow Trio in Copper/Rust/Bronze -
I am actually re-purchasing this eyeshadow trio. Few years ago I 'borrowed' this eyeshadow trio from my mum and forgot to give it back haha, it was well loved and so broken after few years and I had to throw it away, there was only one eyeshadow left in the trio anyway. When I saw it on the website I knew I would love it again. 

NYX Round lipstick in Spell Bound - This is a dupe for MAC Chatterbox, I will see if I can borrow chatterbox from my sister to do a blog post about these. 

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Instanbul - I really wanted to try this and I like it so far. You can see it in action here.

NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Beige - Omgosh, this is my favorite lip gloss!

Jordana Fabu Liner - I saw loads of people talk about this eyeliner on YouTube and since it was so affordable I bought two, just in case if I would love it that much, I would need a back up. 

Milani Color Statement Lipsticks in Sangria and Flamingo Pose - I saw these lipsticks for only $5.49 such a good price, Few months ago I read about these lipsticks on Beauty Broadcast and Emily had posted review off all of them, I looked at her swatches and found the two that I had to have. I really want Primrose as well, there are so many pretty colors.

NYX blushers in Peach and Dusty Rose - These are one of my favorites blushers and I have to do a post soon with the NYX blushers that I have, Dusty Rose is a perfect winter blush! 

NYX eyeshadows in Taupe Pearl, Eggplant and Green Tea - NYX eye shadows are such a great quality and these singles are amazing, Love love the eggplant one, I have a FOTD using it here.

I am very tempting to make an order right this second, but I am already waiting on clothing orders from and

Is online shopping a addiction? nooo not when you are stressed out of your mind and need a bit of retail therapy haha

FOTD - Shades of Fall ft. No7 Truffle eyeshadow

Hi Everyone!

I took these photos few weeks ago and I keep on forgetting to post them so before it's too late to post them here is my Shades of Fall :)

I think it is easy to 'update' your makeup bag for a new season, even though right now in Iceland it is not even fall anymore, it's just cold haha.

For fall I think a neutral blush is really pretty and I love this MUA blush in Cupcake, so affordable.
For lips I like darker lips this season and Revlon Kissable Balm Stain in Crush is perfect.
A beautiful eyeshadow all over the lid is a great way to look like you put some effort in your make up and I am loving No7 Eyeshadow in Truffle. 
I have also grabbed my Rimmel Kohl eyeliner for a smudge to define my eyes a bit more.

 No7 Stay Perfect Foundation
Bobbi Brown Corrector in Porcelain Peach
Rimmel Wake me up Concealer
FashionistA Pressed Powder

I used Soap and Glory Neutral Palette, the light brown and dark brown shades in the crease , just to make it easier to blend out the other color. Then the creamy white shadow on my brow bone.
For a inner corner highlight I used a tiny bit of the lightest shade in the Walking on Eggshells palette from Wet n' Wild.
Then I used the No7 eyeshadow called Truffle all over the lid.

No7 Eyeshadow in Truffle 

This is a brown shimmery color with a hint of gold/bronze warm tones. It suits my green eyes perfectly and I think it makes them stand out. It is a great eyeshadow and blends nicely.

The price is £7 but with all No7 products, you should wait until you can get a voucher and that would be £3 off so I would totally recommend buying this eyeshadow for £4. I think it is a bargain when you use the vouchers.

Then I used my Rimmel Scandaleyes khol eyeliner on the waterline and I also tight lined my upper lashes and just to give my eyes definition I just pressed tiny bit of liner into my lashes.

For a mascara I used my Dior Diorshow Waterproof mascara and it is almost finished so I must hurry and do a post about it because it is brilliant.

For my cheeks I used the contour color from the Sleek Face Form palette, it is a matte and perfect for contouring.
For my blush I used the MUA Cupcake blush. It is a brilliant matte dusty soft peach, but very neutral color, a perfect Autumn blush.

My Lipstick is Revlon Kissable Balm stain in Crush is a great long-wearing shade, it is a deep berry shade and compliments the eyeshadow perfectly.
I really like all the Revlon Kissable balm stain and in America they have brought out a glossy and matte version and I hope that one day I can get my hands on those. 
Have you tried them yet?

So that was my Face of the 'day' even though it is couple of weeks old, I still hope you enjoyed it :)
