Fig leaves - a scent which is currently receiving a lot of love in my bathroom! To me, it represents a warm summer Sunday, flies are buzzing around, a glass of chilled white wine next to me, soft beads rolling down the stem... You get the idea. Another scent which evokes this image in my mind is vine leaves, but this is a topic for another post.

This shower gel by @kloranebg is a beautiful reminder that summer will come again. It's also a great natural addition to your shower routune with its refreshing soap-free foam. Tried it?

I'm probably the biggest fan of Gliss hair sprays and yet I couldn't bring myself to love their Beauty Milks. Although their formula is supposed to be light, I feel like my hair is a bit weighed down after using them. Another serious issue is the fact that I simply can't get my hair to dry - neither with a blow dryer, nor naturally, which is a very bad situation for somone with a sinusitus during the colder months... It could be just that my hair is not damaged or stressed at all - I don't dye it and the blow dryer is used very sparingly. 
On a positive note, the Gliss Beauty Milk sprays leave my hair very very soft and silky to the touch. From the two I'd most probably pick the pink one, as it helps with detangling my hair, too. They also smell very good!

What do you think - tried them?

Maybelline is one of those brands I've never been really interested in. But from time to time they release products that instantly grab my attention. Just like these two... I was probably a bit more hyped about the Master Chrome Highlighter than I should've been. It's just that there were so many videos and blog posts raving about it, I thought it would be something like higher end highlighters but in a drugstore format. Unfortunately, it's not. It's not the high-shine wet look highlighter I expected it to be. Even if you build it up really hard, you end up with a rather subtle glow. Don't get me wrong, it's perfect for everyday use if you're not into shiny stuff, but for me it's just not enough. Not to mention the fact that I expected a different shade - this was supposed to be a Rose Gold, but it's more like dusty pink on my cheeks.

As for the Super Stay Matte Ink lip stain... I have some really mixed feelings about it. I love the mousse formula and how it coats lips in a single swipe, I love the shade, the longevity (gosh, this stays put until you remove it) and the way it wears through the day. But I hate, and I mean I HATE, the sticky feeling after you apply it! It's very very sticky, you literally need to keep your lips apart for a few munutes until it dries down, and it's still sticky... I apply a dab of lip balm to reduce this feeling, but it can compromise the longevity. So, if you're willing to give it a go, be prepared for a really sticky situation... I'd love to hear your thoughts on these products in the comments - love 'em or hate' em?

Galenic Secret D'Excellence is probably the best smelling skincare product I've ever tried. I still open the little bottle from time to time to get a whiff, even though the contents is long gone. It's a potent clean scent which gives me that "first night in new sheets" kind of feeling... Apart from the brilliant scent, it's a beautifully softening formula you can use as a serum under your favourute day and night care. I can't say I've seen noticeable results from using it as this bottle lasted a little over 10 days, though.

Have you tried it?

Let's go to space! Holo highlighters are my all-time favourite obsession 🚀

Have I mentioned that one of my dreams is to see the Earth from space? And then travel to a a parallel universe where I can be on a different planet every day... Anyways, I'm leaving for a week-long vacation in Italy today. It's something!

Do you have any sci-fi dreams? What are they?

One red - two types of finish. Matte and satin, both extremely comfortable to wear. The matte is also very long-lasting. The only thing I don't like is the packaging of the matte lipstick, as the plastic feels pretty cheap. Apart from that, these lipsticks by Yves Rocher are really nice and I love them!

This summer has been hot on new hair care releases. Nivea's micellar shampoo could have gone under the radar, but thankfully I got attracted by the big bottle and grabbed it. I went through two bottles of the purifying option, and now I'm about to try the fortifying option... Let's see if it's as good as its brother!

I suddenly started liking fixing sprays - and now that I've tried Urban Decay's All Nighter, I can compare results. This spray by Catrice for example does a great job at 'fusing' my makeup together for a more polished look. It also refreshes and extends wear just a bit (while All Nighter is really good at setting makeup to last much longer). Bonus point: if you mist your face right before applying mascara, it enhances your eyelash look!

What do you think about fixing sprays?
