Glee - the end

After six seasons and so many characters, stories and songs Glee has come to an end. Back in 2009 when the show first came along it was one of my favorites. I loveee first season and I watched it few times. Glee was fresh, fun, funny, colorful and different, to me it was delightful to watch it. Mix of interesting characters, funny dialogues and above all great musical numbers. To start it was so unusual to have TV show that is actually a musical, it was great formula and from the beginning of the show until now there were so many good cover songs that fit perfectly into the story. Glee become very popular, very quickly. They won several awards and they made music and singing in TV shows popular. After Glee came so many other shows had their Glee moment ( How I Met Your Mother, The Vampire Diaries, Hart Of Dixie just to name a few).

I believe that most of us know that Glee is show about show choir where group of not so popular kids is trying to make it. There were so many great singers trough the show but in opinion one stands out, Rachel Berry played by Lea Michele. That girl has a beautiful voice and it is true star of the show. Beside Rachel there were many amazing singers from regular cast and guest stars. 

After great season 1 the usual thing happened. They lost their spark. Season 2 was good but they never went to that unique spark they had in season 1. Main problem probably was that they had too many characters and too many stories so we got little bit of everything and it was easy to get lost in the plot and things got boring. They did however had great cross from high school to what happens after. Last season of the show was good. You can see that they were wrapping things up and I like how they got full circle in the end and it was nice to see everybody getting their happy ending.  In the end my favorite things about Glee are the songs, Lea Michelle, Diana Agron and tribute that they gave to Finn Hudson and Cory Monteith.
I will end this post with the song that is classic Glee...I always thought that Don't Stop Believing will be the last song we hear in the show but it was close enough so I don't mind.

Did you watched Glee? How did you like it

Empty #19

L'Oreal Elvital Color Glanz conditioner - once again in my empties :)

I Love...Mango & Papaya shower cream - big 500 ml bottle is gone :) Really nice product, nice smell but I doubt I will repurchase it. Too many great shower gels, creams and soaps to come back to it.

Balea Mango Mumbo shower gel - another mango scented shower gel in this post. This is classic Balea, nice smell and pretty package. This was limited edition and I'm looking forward to new LE from Balea.

Balea strawberry shower gel and liquid soap - It is interesting that I have two products from the same line and one smells gorgeous - the shower gel and I don't like the other one - the soap. I have no idea but something is different and soap is not my thing while I love sweet, candy smell of shower gel.

L'Oreal Elvital Color Glanz shampoo - here again :)

Avon Anew BB cream - To find out more about it click here. Really nice product, I'm not sure if I would buy it again, I probably would.

H&M White nail polish - Perfect white for nail art but it doesn't have perfect coverage to wear it alone. However, I used it for nail art and it was great.

Essence Ahoy nail polish - I had this one for years and it was part of so many manicures, it was also great alone.

Revlon Color Stay 150 Buff - my favorite liquid foundation! Pure perfection!

Givenchy Organza - my favorite fragrance ever, I'm so sad that is gone and I hope I will own another bottle soon. Most beautiful perfume ever!!

New in - February and March 2015

I will start this New in post with my last buy. Everything you see on photo above I bought while I was in Germany. Considering that I was there only four days and that I didn't do proper shopping this is great catch. Here I have: Treacle Moon Lovely Mint Story, Ebelin nail polish remover, Catrice Velvet Finish, Catrice Nude Illusion, Bale Cabana Dream body lotion, Balea Tropical Sunshine body lotion, Balea cream, Essence So This Is Love blush ( click ), p2 Lovely Trust and Love Happens lipsticks, Essence I Heart Extreme mascara and Essence I Heart Stage eyeshadow base.
Please notice that there are no nail polish!! It really seems that my lack of space and storage for nail polish is taking a toll on me so I didn't even bought p2 nail polish which I always do. Mostly I bought products that I already know, there was no time for looking and exploring...I didn't even get to go in Lush and The Body Shop. 

Beside products I bought in Germany I didn't bought a lot. Only a Schwarzkopf Got2Be hairspray and two Balea creams in cutest tins ever. These creams are for your face or your body, I will probably use them on my face. Main reason why I bought them is the beautiful packing, if you look again on first photo you can see another Balea cream. I found that one in Germany and if Balea comes out with more of these I believe that I will buy every single one of them. After I use them for a while you can expect a blog post. 

Last photo is actually my first buy in February. Here is my new perfume Beckham Intimately. Very nice scent, I already had Beckham Intimately Yours and still can't decide which one I prefer. I will post more about it very soon! 
For the end of this post I have two nail polishes: Essence Icy Fairy and Essence Lady Mermaid. I absolutely love both of them and I already posted my swatches so if you want to know more click here and here.
Did you tried any of these products?

Makeup Revolution Redemtion Palette Essential Mattes

As soon as it came to the market Makeup Revolution Essential Mattes palette became very popular. It is not a surprise because at the time it was so hard to find affordable matte eyeshadow palettes. Now  the situation is little bit better because Makeup Revolution alone has few more matte palettes as well as Catrice and some other brands. I own one and I'm very happy with it and I don't feel the need to get more. Essential Mattes palette contains 12 matte eyeshadows, they are neutral and perfect for any kind of use. Day or night.. you can use only this palette or combine them with shimmery eyeshadows. The choice is yours but it is great to have only matte shades in one place.

The package is good, the usual Makeup Revolution. Nothing special but all the eyeshadows are easy to reach and well protected. The colors in the palette are neutral so you have beige, brown and purple shades.There are four light shades, three of them are almost the same thing but the beauty of this palette for me is in other eight shades, they are the ones I use most of the time. With primer these eyeshadows last whole day. 
The palette contains total 14 g of product.

Here are my swatches, no primer:

Pretty good right? This is definitely a good buy, especially if you looking for good matte eyeshadows. I have bunch of neutral palettes and this could easily be in my top 3.

Did you tried Makeup Revolution Essential Mattes? Do you like matte eyeshadows?

Swatch: Essence So This Is Love blush

Right after I saw Essence Cinderella trend edition I knew the blush will be mine. Just look how cute it is :) When I saw Cinderella display it was full and the blush was the only thing I took home with me. It seems that I finally realized that I have too much of everything so I don't have to buy more unnecessary makeup every single time. That being said it sounds like So This Is Love blush is something I really needed, is not but I will tell you again, look how cute it is! Inside and out!

The color of the blush is coral. The coverage is not strong, you can build it up but this is the blush for everyday makeup or when you want natural of subtle makeup. If you like to have focus on your cheeks maybe you should skip this one. The finish is matte and it applies and blends easily. The package contains 8 g of product.

The swatch:

Overall if I wasn't big sucker for packing I would probably skip this product but I will use it at least now when is shiny and new until I go back to something else or find something new.
Did you find something you like in Cinderella TE?

Essence Icy Fairy

Usually I try to avoid effect top coats but I couldn't resist Essence Icy Fairy. The reason why I avoid them is because I'm too lazy to apply base color and then remove the glitter after all. Too much work if you ask me, at least lately. When I saw Icy Fairy swatches around web it was something I knew I would love to have and that I wouldn't mind to do the "work". 

Essence Icy Fairy is glitter topper with different size silver and blue glitter. Now, my photos can't really tell how pretty it is in person because it looks really gorgeous in combination with black. When you apply it over black it gives your nails galaxy nail art effect and your nails looks special in a minute. It is easy to apply, it dries quickly and it contains 10 ml of product. Definitely one of my favorite glitters lately.

Did you tried Essence Icy Fairy? What is your favorite glitter?
