Sweethearts of April 2017

April favorites

I rarely publish posts with my favorites, but in April I found a few products that won my heart, so I would like to share my opinion on them with you. It will be a little cosmetically, but also less cosmetically, because our blog in 100% cosmetic is no longer. So what, ready for April favorites?

Cosmetic favorites

April was full of cosmetic pearls. As you know, I don't buy a lot of cosmetics (I didn't go for a promotion in Rossmann, for example). I like testing cosmetics, especially when something runs out or I find a really interesting product. In April, I came across 3 products that I particularly liked.

Inglot modeling eyebrow gel

My eyebrows are black so I don't need any products to highlight their color. Unfortunately, they have it that they don't stick to the bow. He came to my aid colorless modeling eyebrow gel Inglot, which is in the package like mascara.

The plus is that the product has a brush - thanks to it, we can easily and quickly emphasize eyebrows, and the effect will last for hours. The product is waterproof, so that even when it rains our eyebrows look perfect. 39 eyebrow gel costs PLN.

Lipstick with a flower from Hebe

I have to admit without beating that I bought lipstick because of its appearance. I got my attention every time I was in Hebe, but her high price (almost PLN 40) meant that I always left without her. When I saw that it was in the -50% promotion, I finally decided to test it.

A flower lipstick with a gel consistency is an interesting gadget - it changes color depending on the temperature and pH of the lips. And it really works - I notice it is more or less intense. However, this is not the effect we will achieve with lipstick, but rather delicate lipstick. In addition to the described effect - the product moisturizes the lips very well. It's a great choice every day.

Mascara Eveline 3 in 1

I'm at the stage of looking for good mascara. It is true that Max Factor False Lash is still a huge favorite of mine, but it annoys me that it dries very quickly and the effect is no longer as spectacular as at the beginning. That's why I started searching and found Eveline 3 mascara in 1 - curling, thickening and lengthening eyelashes. It is true that at the end of April I got the L'Oréal Paris mascara for testing, but I think I will return to Eveline mascara more than once.

This product actually curls, thickens and lengthens eyelashes. I thought it was a marketing gimmick, but no. I don't know how this mascara does it, but it's really good, and it costs about PLN 20.

Washing balls

Organic washing balls are my big hit. Not only that, I save on laundry detergents (I don't have to buy powders, liquids or water softeners anymore), my skin is not irritated and dry. One washing ball is enough to use 1500. The price of one ball is 6,99 PLN. on Allegro (they are of course more expensive, but I bought the cheapest one to test them) is very beneficial in relation to the amount of use one ball.
The balls are washed in an ecological way with the help of granules that they have inside. They are recommended for allergy sufferers, children as well as animals. If you are interested in washing balls, see their detailed review click.

Books

In April I read a few books, and some of them caught my eye. One of the books that I especially recommend is Be chic! Émilie Albertini. This book is actually a guide on fashion and Parisian style. Reading it, I found a lot of common elements between a Parisian wardrobe and a minimalist. This book made me realize the shortcomings in my wardrobe, especially in my shoes. I absolutely have to look through all the shoes and decide which ones will go on sale or give away, and which ones I will leave.

The third part about Madame Chic has joined my collection of books about Paris, i.e. School of Graceful Madame Chic Jennifer L. Scott. It's a great summary of the current parts, as well as gathering all the information at a glance. If you haven't read the previous parts, you can read this part and learn who Madame Chic is and how to become it. Although I liked this book, because I really like the style of writing Jennifer L. Scott, I will most likely return to the second part.

In May I have to read for sure 'Be Parisian wherever you are', as well as Parisian chic. Look Book de la Fressange Ines, Gachet Sophie. This second book is ready styles for specific occasions. It works as a dose of inspiration, and also on days when we still don't know what to wear.
