Makeup :: L'Oréal L’Or Electric collection

I love L'Oréal Color Infaillible eyeshadows, I said that so many times but it's true. Everytime I'm in a drugstore I check if there are any new colours. Usually the range consists of only eight shades or so but sometimes there are nice surprises. Last two months I my collection expanded a bit, today I'm going to show you two of the shades I bought. 

Both come with a L’Or Electric limited edition, consisting of three Color Infaillible eyeshadows (037 Metallic Lilac, 039 Magnetic Coral, 040 Cosmic Black),  three  lipsticks (402 Electric Fuchsia, 406 Neonic Orange, 407 Metallic Coral) and three beautiful nail polishes (807 Majestic Green, 810 Mythic Carpet, 811 Magic Croisette). I bought only two shadows - 039 Magnetic Coral and 040 Cosmic Black, because I found 037 Metallic Lilac to cool and silvery for me.

Both shadows I bought have shiny finish. It says "iridescent" on the pot but they differ from each other. Magnetic Coral is softer and more metallic, whereas Cosmic Black is more like a matte with a shimmer but still intense and easy to use.

As for colours, in my opinion the names are quite misguiding. For me Magnetic Coral is too orange to be called "coral", even though it has some pink sheen to it. Cosmic Black is more like a dark khaki-sh black with golden shimmer. Both shadows are beautiful. Magnetic Coral is too warm for me to be worn on its own but look great with turquoise, sea green, purple. Great for a colourful summery look. Cosmic Black is great for an evening smoky eye or worn as an eyeliner.

Makeup :: Sleek Makeup Blush in Santorini

I fell in love with Sleek blushes. I love the pigmentation, shades and quality in general. The first one I got was Pixie Pink which I thought is a bright pink. But when I got Santorini from Meditearrranean Collection Pixie Pink doesn't seem to be that bright anymore. Santorini is a hot pink, very intense and bold. It gives me a fresh and girly look, even though I'm very pale and these kind of shades are said to be good for darker skintones. 

It's a coour you have to be very careful with. It blends easily but remeber that it's easier to add some more blusher than take it off your face. I wouldn't recommend using a blush brush, it's better to grab something that won't absorb that much of a product. I use my Inglot 27 TG duo fibre brush or sephora fan brush.

I wish Blush By 3 were available in Poland. Do you like Sleek blushes? Which shade is your favourite?

Nails :: H&M Wanna Pepperoni

It's very hot in Poland right now. All of the sudden spring changed into hot summer. One of the ways to deal with high temperatures, though not typical for Polish people at all, is spicy food. I adore everything that's spicy! Today I had a delicious sour & hot fish with olives, capparis and jalapeño. There's a spicy colour on my nails as well: Wanna Pepperoni by H&M.

It's a surprisingly good nail polish. It's very opaque, one coat is enough, goes on smoothly, with no streaks. I 'll defeinitely check other shades.
