RMS Beauty Wild With Desire Mini Lipstick Set w/ swatches

februar 17, 2019

I got this beautiful lipstick set a few days ago and since it's limited edition I wanted to show it to you as soon as possible. I've tried one RMS Beauty Wild With Desire Lipstick before, in the shade Red* which is this gorgeous red lipstick (see how it looks on me here). I don't wear lipsticks very often so when I saw RMS Beauty came out with their Wild With Desire Mini Lipstick Set*, I knew I had to have it. These lipsticks are highly pigmented (like super pigmented), they are long lasting and can stain the lips. They dry to satin, matte finish and initially they feel very comfortable on my lips. I do like to moisturize my lips with a lip balm before applying them because they can feel a bit drying after a few hours.

Jezebel - a blackberry red. Get it here.

Unmistakable - a subtle beige nude.

Temptation - a classic pinky-mauve (my current fave, I'm wearing it here). Get it here.

Masquerade - a cool flirty pink (swatches don't do it justice, it's really bright and pink in real life, not coral).

Nightfall - an intense tawny cranberry.

 I wanted to do swatches on my lips as well but the camera and lighting just didn't cooperate with me today. I may show them to you over on my insta stories in a few days.

I got the RMS Beauty Wild With Desire Mini Lipstick Set at LoveLula, where unfortunately is no longer in stock but is available over at RMS Beauty's website. You can shop these lipsticks here.

Happy Sunday!

With love,

Jana xx

Over at @earthwisebeauty

februar 14, 2019

First of all, happy Valentine's Day! I don't know if you celebrate or not and I know we should all celebrate love every day but it is still nice that the greatest thing of all has its own day, isn't it? No matter what you're doing, I hope you're having a lovely day. This week I haven't been that productive on my blog as I was last week but I was present over at Earthwise Beauty's Instagram acconut, where I was doing a little 3-day takeover. You can follow EWB here, where you can see the three posts I published, but those of you who don't have an account I will share a few snippets here as well.Earthwise Beauty Sungod Face Mask. Organic, natural, masking selfie, no makeup
In my first post (see it here) I shared a little bit about myself, a very random fact about me - I love listening podcasts about serial killers, cults and stuff like that. Not very lovely but oh so interesting! And no I don't really care for horror movies and yes, sometimes I do get a nightmare or two because of them podcasts. I also declared my current top three favourites from Earthwise Beauty and one of them is the mask I'm applying on the photo, the beautiful Sungod Face Mask* (review). It's nurturing, it strengthens the skin, reduces hyperpigmentation and evens out skin tone. You can get Sungod Face Mask here (and as always you can use my affiliate code Loveliness for 15% off your order - one time use only).
Earthwise Beauty Evening Skincare Routine Cistus and Moonlight Face Mist, Resiliency Face Serum, Black Locust Firming Concentrate, Yasuni Face Balm, Thelma Lip Treatment Earthwise Beauty Black Locust Firming Concentrate Powerful Plant Extract for Mature Skin. Non clogging, non-comedogenic, lightweight
Earthwise Beauty Yasuni Face Balm Featherlight Balm for Sensitive Skin. No essential oils
The second post (see it here) was all about my current evening skincare routine with Earthwise Beauty products. On my freshly cleansed skin I first apply Cistus & Moonlight Face Mist* (review), which contains Cistus Hydrosol distilled in Portugal and then infused under full moon at EWB's headquarters. Following up with Resiliency Face Serum* (review) which is a lightweight, firming, anti-acne aloe vera based serum and the brand new Black Locust Firming Concentrate* (review). This oil serum is so lovely. It was created for mature skin and yes it's rich and moisturizing but then it also works amazing on my combination skin because it's lightweight and non-comedogenic. I sometimes then also apply a little bit of the amazing Yasuni Face Balm* (review) which doesn't contain any essential oils, is vegan, non-comedogenic and super lightweight. Last step is the healing and repairing Thelma Lip Treatment*.
PNW Essences PAcific Northwest Essences Voice of Courage Aura Mist
In the third post (see it here) I talked about my experience with Pacific Northwest Essences and their stunning Voice of Courage Face Mist*. I mentioned it in my previous post (see here) so I won't go into details but know that it works. It's bloody brilliant! You can find it here (and you can also use my affiliate code Loveliness for 15% off your order - one time use only).

If you're one of those who liked or commented on my IG posts I have to say a huge thank you to you! You are so kind to me and I love you all so much. Thank you for reading.

Happy Thursday!

With all my love,

Jana xx

Loving at the Moment

februar 08, 2019

Happy Friday loves! I've been having such a productive week, I absolutely love it. I'm coming at you today with my third post of the week, this time it's all about my current faves. Without any further ado, here are the products I recently fell in love with.
Natural and Organic Favourites. Siam Seas, Aether Palette, Pacific Northwest Essences, Jane Scrivner, Tabitha James Kraan, Ere Perez
Siam Seas Kwam Rak Body Serum Boxwalla Beauty Box
Siam Seas Kwam Rak Body Serum* (review). Oh my goodness, this body serum is SO GOOD! This beautiful serum looks like a lotion and is instantly absorbed into the skin but then it feels like an oil in terms that it deeply moisturizes the skin and keeps it soft and hydrated all day long. It's so amazing. It is made in a base of Aloe Juice and Aloe Inner Fillet Gel, and contains raw, unrefined Mustard Seed Oil, three types of Ceramides, Pomegranate, Noni, Turmeric, Ashwagandha, Ginger, Green Tea, and more. I adore the scent as well. It has an intoxicating aroma of Jasmine Sambac and Frangipani, with a slightly earthy, spicy undertone of Nutmeg and Mustard Seed. Kwam Rak is very unique and special. I'm in love. This new creation by Siam Seas is available in the February Boxwalla Beauty Box, which you can get until Sunday, February 10th. You can get the box here.
Tabitha James Kraan Scented Organic Hair Oil Beauty Heroes
Tabitha James Kraan Scented Organic Hair Oil* (review). Sidekick of February Beauty Discovery but in my opinion it's a co-hero to Clean Shampoo & Conditioner (see my Instagram post about the box here). So many of us love using facial oils but did you ever think of applying oils to your scalp? We have sebaceous glands there too and applying a hair oil can calm oil production. Ever since I stopped dyeing my hair a few years ago, I've become very lazy when it comes to taking care of my hair with hair oils. But when I do use them I always make sure I apply them on my scalp as well. What I find really interesting with Tabitha's oil is that she recommends we only use on pump for the whole scalp. I always assumed I needed more. I love the whole routine Tabitha recommends - warm up the oil between your hands and massage your scalp. Who doesn't love a good head massage, it's bloody amazing! With Safflower, Rosehip, Argan and Sea Buckthorn, this oil is almost too precious for them hair. I love that it's moisturizing but not heavy or super greasy. And it also smells wonderful - slightly floral, slightly earthy. Gorgeous. You can get Tabitha James Kraan Scented Organic Hair Oil in February Beauty Discovery here.
Jane Scrivner Nourishing Cleanser Beauty Heroes
Jane Scrivner Nourishing Cleanser* (review). Gosh, this cleansing balm is so good, I can't even! Made with Jojoba Seed Oil, Beeswax and 9 essential oils, including Ylang Ylang and Sweet Orange of which the cleanser smells like, this beauty is super luxurious and effectively removes makeup. It's a very soft balm which immediately melts into this stunning oil that glides on your skin like nothing else and lifts up dirt and dissolves away all my makeup. Love. This product was in January Beauty Discovery by Beauty Heroes and I'm so very pleased about it cause god knows how long would otherwise take me to try the brand. I love Jane's OO Cream* too (so lush!) and I just started using the Bioluronic Buzz*, a serum with bio-fermented Hyaluronic Acid and this very intriguing ingredient Buzz Button. You can get Jane Scrivner Nourishing Cleanser here (Beauty Heroes members save 15%).
Aether Beauty Rose Quartz Crystal Gemstone Palette The Green Jungle Beauty Shop
Aether Beauty Rose Quartz Crystal Gemstone Palette* (review). Do I really need to say anything more?? I'm pretty sure all of you already know how much love I have for this eyeshadow palette. It's utterly stunning. You can get it here (affiliate code "Jana" saves you 10%).
Ere Perez Carrot Colour Pot Harmony and Happy, Rice Powder Bronzer in Tulum. Love Lula
Using bronzer and blush as an eyeshadow. I've loved using bronzer all over my face, including on my lids (particularly in the crease) but lately even more so I've been obsessed with first applying the bronzer and then blush as well. It just creates this beautiful look, it makes the face makeup complete and I just really love the whole look. It ties everything together. My go-to combo is Ere Perez Rice Powder Bronzer in Tulum* (review) and Ere Perez Carrot Colour Pot in either Harmony* and/or Happy* (review). Try it okay, you will love it.
Pacific Northwest Essences Voice of Courage Aura Mist
Pacific Northwest Essences Voice of Courage Aura Mist*. This is such a special, special product. This is an aura mist. A mist that you spray all around you or what I like to do is to mist it in the air and step right below it. This way I'm gently sprinkled with fine mist and can breathe it all in. This essence blend was created for the person seeking more courage. Courage can mean more than one thing: for some of us it means being able to handle a trying life situation; for some it means shedding a lifelong aspect of our personality of unwelcome, limiting shyness; for others it means wanting once and for all to speak our truth to the world, to our family members and to strangers. You guys, this is magic! Not sure if it's placebo or if it really works (but I think it really works because I also have their Sun Infusion Essence Blend* and it works so well too) but I love love love using this product. Like I said, I mist it in the air above me, close my eyes and breathe in its sweet, sweet scent. I mean sweet as in amazing. It smells of Cedar Essential Oil. The scent and the whole ritual makes me instantly calmer and more grounded, it makes me happy and like I can do anything. It's quite mental actually haha. Without going into details, let's just say that it's making me more courageous, brave and it's honestly so much easier to speak my mind and share things. When I was describing this product to some of my friends I said it helps with throat chakra and reading the description of this product it just cemented that. One of the ingredients are Violets, which are a classic choice in flower essence literature for social anxiety, timidity, and fearfulness, and blue viola acts on the throat chakra to help with verbal communication challenges—it can help us to speak clearly, eloquently, and without anger. Am yes! Definitely, definitely something you need in your life. You can get Pacific Northwest Essences Voice of Courage Aura Mist here.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

Love,

Jana xxx

Aether Beauty Rose Quartz Crystal Gemstone Palette w/ Swatches

februar 07, 2019

All you lovebugs that follow me on Instagram already know that I'm in LOVE with Aether Beauty Rose Quartz Crystal Gemstone Palette*. It's just so beyond stunning and I adore it terribly. It's full of absolutely gorgeous colours - it features 12 shades in matte, shimmer, duo-chrome and metallic finishes, it's vegan, cruelty free, made with 70% naturally derived ingredients (ok I wish that was 100%) and is also in sustainable packaging. This palette doesn't have a mirror and magnets inside and with removal of shadow pans and elastic, it is fully recyclable. The shades in this palette are so beautiful - they're soft, creamy, they are powdery in the pan but not on the lids, they are pigmented (even the matte ones) and easily blendable. The four glittery/duo-chrome shades in the middle can transfer glitter under the eyes but they're just so beautiful on top of other shades that I'm not even that mad about the fallout. If I know I'm gonna use them I just make sure to put on my foundation and concealer after I do my eyes or I hold a tissue under my eyes. On me pretty much all eyeshadows crease but if I properly prime my lids these stay put for hours. They last really well and all in all I'm very impressed with this palette and highly recommend it, especially if you love more rose & purple eyeshadows. I have never loved applying eyeshadows as much as I do now.

 For this pink look I first applied Sandstone all over my lids, more so to set my lids than for anything else. Then I applied Scorpio in my crease and outer V. With my finger I applied Rose Quartz in the middle of my lid and Stardust in the inner corners of my eyes. Aether Beauty Rose Quartz Crystal Gemstone Palette. Vegan, cruelty free, natural.

 For the purple look I applied Scorpio all over my lids, including the crease. I deepened my crease and outer V with Aphrodite and Grounding. I also used both shades on my lower lash line. On the center on my lids I first applied Astarte and then topped it off with Aura (both applied with fingers).

If you wish to read more or see how I did these two makeup looks, then check out my Instagram and my "makeup" highlights where I saved the two tutorials (see here). I think I will do another look, this time I'm thinking of doing something sans purple or pink, will see if it goes to plan.

Goddess. February Clean Beauty Box

februar 05, 2019

You know what I love? LILFOX products. And the fact that Clean Beauty Box is featuring them again in their February box. LILFOX was founded by Alexis Rose, a perfumer, aromatherapist and aromatherapy educator trained in organic cosmetic formulation. She created luxurious, sophisticated, vibrational products to which I'm really drawn to. 

In the February Clean Beauty Box* are two LILFOX products: Cleopatra Restorative Milk + Honey Beauty Mask (100 ml) and Aphrodite Rose Quartz Infused Rose Toning Mist (50 ml). You can get the box here.

LILFOX Cleopatra Restorative Milk + Honey Beauty Mask is a face mask I've tried before. It's gently detoxifying with White and Rose Clays, nourishing and softening with Coconut Milk, Honey, brightening and rich in Vitamin C thanks to Camu Camu and Baobab, and renewing and gently exfoliating because of Pineapple and Papaya. It also contains Rose Quartz Gem Powder, which is one of my fave crystals: it's all about love and self-love, it opens the heart chakra to enhance love in all situations. Perfect for this month of love. It's said that rose quartz powder is brightening on the skin and you know I love me some brightening ingredients. I love mixing this mask with a few drops of oil and raw organic honey. You can leave it on for 20 - 40 minutes, just make sure it doesn't dry up on the skin. Either mist your face with Aphrodite or water. To me this mask is not a one trick pony and after one use I don't notice dramatic results but it really makes my skin brighter and more even with regular, weekly use. Saying this my skin does always look refreshed, more radiant and soft after I rinse it off. It's beautiful. You can get LILFOX Cleopatra Restorative Milk + Honey Beauty Mask here.
LILFOX Aphrodite Rose Quartz infused Rose Toning Mist. February Clean Beauty Box
LILFOX Aphrodite Rose Quartz Infused Rose Toning Mist is a cooling and balancing floral water for all skin types. Rose is said to have the highest vibration of all the plant world making Aphrodite the perfect mist to elevate our sensual and creative energies for February. Rose water infused with Rose Quartz, oh this is perfect. I like to apply it under my serum and other products, and I especially love using it as a makeup setting spray or an afternoon refreshing mist. You can get LILFOX Aphrodite Rose Quartz Infused Rose Toning Mist here.

You can get February Clean Beauty Box with LILFOX here.

Much love to you all,

Jana xx
