I have never tried a matte nail polish before, sure I heard about the boiling water and how it`s steam can make any nail polish in your collection matte, but I always was lazy to try out this method. So when I saw an Avon Magic Effects Matte Nail Enamel in my favourite `Black` shade I decided to purchase it, even thought it is not very spring  or summer `appropriate` colour.  I was almost 100 % sure, that I`m going to add this matte enamel in my monthly favourites post, but unfortunately this product have disappointing me, so let me tell you about it`s pros and cons. 

Avon Magic Effects Matte Nail Enamel  comes in a gorgeous classy packaging - sleek glass bottle with a super comfortable flat and wide brush, for an easy application of the product. It was a big surprise to me when nail enamel started to dry out on my nails super fast. The pigmentation of the product is incredible, it is a very beautiful deep black colour. To get full opacity I only needed a one thin coat of the enamel - very impressive! And it looks gorgeous on the hands, a little bit grungy and classy at the same time.

And now the sad part of my review:(  Avon Magic Effects Matte Nail Enamel started to chip and peel off on the next day and I was deeply disappointing by this fact. Certainly, I do not hope that my manicure will last a month without an update, but I think we deserve at least few days of fresh looking nails. To make this nail polish look neat and last long, the nail plate should be perfectly prepared - filed, polished, degreased and primed with a good base. But not everyone have so much time and patience to perform all these steps.

Overall,  this Magic Effects Matte Nail Enamel by Avon was a disappointment, not a complete fail, because the colour is incredible, but I`m not going to repurchase it again and I, unfortunately, I can`t recommend this product to you. I wanted to like it and I think I will give it a second chance with some matte overcoat and a good base, but for now this is no. I hope my review was useful for some of you, I`ll talk to you later :*

Lots of love,
Liza

Essence is one of my favourite budget friendly brands ever, they have an amazing and diverse choice of high quality makeup products and lots of positive reviews around beauty blogger community. Recently I got three beautiful lip glosses by this brand and today I`m going to share with my thoughts and swatches on these beauties. All three lip glosses are from different beauty lines and they  have different finish on the skin, so I decided that you will like to see how they work on the lips. 

The first lip gloss I want to talk about is the Essence XXXL Shine Lipgloss in `04 Rising Star` and I was lucky enough to be an owner of this cutie a while ago. The consistency of this lip gloss is a bit runny, it has a very sweet scent of vanilla. I would describe the shade as a transparent baby pink with shiny duochrome shimmer.

I thought that the Nude Lipgloss in `05 Just Nude!` shade will be my favourite one, because of its light texture and pretty transparent colour, but it has some difficulties with the application. Pigment goes right into the cracks of my lips and the colour doesn`t look even. The formula of this lip gloss is very moisturizing and a bit runny, maybe that`s why it doesn`t work very well, but the shade is really really pretty. It has absolutely the same scent as a previous lip gloss`Rising Star`.

And the third and my favourite lip gloss called Velvet Matt Lipgloss in `06 Soft Nude`. It is this super beautiful chocolate - terracotta colour that steals my heart away! This kind of colour is appropriate both for night out or a day time, it goes great with a dramatic smokey eye or a soft everyday look. `Soft Nude` has a pretty velvety finish, it is matte, but luckily does not dry my lips, feels very pleasant and silky on the skin. And the best part - the fragrance. It literally smells like a chocolate truffle, I always want to eat it when I start to apply the lip gloss on. By the way, this shade is a dupe for Dior Addict Fluid Stick in `Mirage`, so if you are searching a perfect substitution check out `Soft Nude`.

Overall, I would definitely recommend you all the three little gems, they moisturize the lips very well and have a bright fragrance together with the awesome formula. Almost forgot to mention that Essence lip glosses are sweet, so your partner will appreciate them as well ;)

Have you ever tried lip glosses by Essence?

Lots of love,
Liza

As the summer approaches our gentle facial skin needs more hydration and toning, especially during the hot stuffy days. So let me introduce you the Yon - Ka Phyto - Aromatic Facial Lotion or refreshing facial mist as I like to call it. It is not just a regular fresh water in a bottle as you might think, but also a small spa therapy that you can carry in your bag and use any time you want, let me tell you a little bit more about the product. 

Yon - Ka Phyto - Aromatic Lotion comes in a solid glass bottle with a pump spray at the top. The spray gives the right amount of the product, covering the skin with a dewy thin haze. To cover the entire face I need just a few clicks. The formula is very lightweight and even though it doesn`t contain alcohol, which is amazing, it dries in no time leaving the skin smooth and toned! 

Yon - Ka claims that 95 % of the ingredients in this lotion are natural, they literary gathered all the essential herbs and flowers in one small bottle for our enjoyment - Lavender Oil, Geranium Oil, Rosemary Leaf Oil, Cypress Oil and Thyme Oil - it`s only a few of the essential ingredients in the Phyto - Aromatic Lotion. These oils help to calm down redness and irritations, accelerate healing process in the cells and simply nourish the skin. If you need some after shave, wax or exfoliation care Yon - Ka Phyto - Aromatic Facial Lotion will solve all the complications. And don`t worry if you have oily or acne prone skin - the product will work great on you as well.

The fragrance reminds me of a summer field full of lavender and chamomile flowers, it is kind strong at first, but the scent slowly fades away after the application. If you are a fan of natural scents of wild flowers and dry herbs you will definitely love this product. Every time I spray this fresh mist on my skin I feel like I`m laying on a grass, next to the calm lake and taking a sun bath.

I would highly recommend trying Yon - Ka Phyto - Aromatic Facial Lotion for everyone who needs some skin refreshment throughout the day. It will be good for any skin type, especially for dull, sensitive and dehydrated skin. I have a feeling that it will be my number one product this summer :) Don`t forget to give it a go and don`t forget to check out the whole skin care range by Yon - Ka on their official website, they have a whole bunch of interesting products and a new design. 

`More than just a toner, this healing mist is a true phyto-aromatic fountain of beauty, essential for re-balancing and preparing the skin for everyday beauty products. Alcohol-free, it refreshes, tones and sanitizes the skin, the energizing effects of its essential oils can be felt 
throughout the whole body`

Lots of love,
Liza

The weather in my city is changing dramatically at the moment and my facial skin became more naughty - it demands less intense moisturizing, but better protection from the sun lights and refreshment. I`ve been holding this cream on the shelve for quite some time, and the moment for this potion have come! I started to use Yon - Ka Vital Defense Age Prevention Cream just recently, but I already can feel and see few positive changes in my skin condition.

Vital Defense by Yon - Ka has truly  unique formula - it creates an invisible shield between the skin and harmful environmental factors that surround us every day, such as pollution, UV rays and drastic weather changes. Moringa peptides help to restore firmness of the skin and make it more supply and soft, high - performance plant extracts, such as Organic myrtle and Orange Peel Oil preserve its youthfulness and freshness. 

I love the pleasant soft scent of the Vital Defense cream, to me it smells like orange succades and sweet frosting, very delicious! The reason why it has such a nice smell lies in the essential oils of sweet orange, mandarin and magnolia - these ingredients also energize and revive skin cells from the inside. The cream has a very rich, but lightweight consistency and smooth silky texture. I like to use it in the morning as a primer, right after cleansing and before applying my makeup. The product absorbs very good and fast and looks great under the foundation and powder.

If you are looking for a nice lightweight, but hydrating facial cream Yon - Ka Vital Defense is undoubtedly worth your attention. It is advised to use this cream for young skin (25 - 35 years) to prevent aging and protect it from external aggression. Check out the official Yon - Ka website for more information and thank you for reading my post, I`ll talk to you soon again :*

Lots of love,
Liza
