Revlon Nail Enamel - Gray Suede - review and swatches

I am not sure how nail polish get's it name, but there is nothing gray about this one. Revlon Enamel in Gray Suede (705) is a lovely, pearly pink with a calm undertone. 

See the swatch for reference:

Personally I love lighter shades on my nails, because they suit almost anything I want to wear and they tend to last longer on my nails too. 

Beautiful shade to own and wear any time of the year. Nail polish is very liquidy, so takes few strokes to figure out how much you need to leave on the brush. Result is good, without streaks with a gentle shine. 

Colour lasted sadly only for two days on my nails, but most of nail polishes last only that long on my busy tips. I would give 5 stars for colour and 3 stars for lasting strength, so that makes it 4 stars out of 5 for Revlon Nail Enamel Gray Suede. Not a perfection, but will enjoy it for many months to come.

What is your favourite Revlon shade? Does it last long?

Empty bottles: Vitamasques and Decleor

I saved two empties for you to review: hydro face mask from Vitamasques and Decleor hydrating oil serum.

1. Vitamasques Hydro Face Mask Rose of Jericho. I never bothered to keep an empty pack of a single mask for review, just because I felt that I have nothing special to share. Until now. Vitamasques Hydro Face Mask Rose of Jericho stands out and I just couldn't bin the empty pack without sharing it with you. What impressed me the most is the quality of face pack material; it has the best feel and just the perfect cut.

According to the brand The Hydro Face Mask has been designed to provide hydration and moisture retention in the skin. The mask contains Artificial Moisturising Factor along with extracts from the Rose of Jericho, which enhances the skin's ability to retain moisture.

If I would rate Vitamasques Hydro Face Mask Rose of Jericho, I would give it 4 stars out of 5. My only reservation goes to the amount of time you need to spend with the mask on. Suggestion is to leave the mask on for approximately 30 minutes, it is a little bit too long for my busy lifestyle. But I really enjoyed this mask, so it might come again to my bathroom cabinet. 

2. Decleor Aromeessence Neroli Hydrating Oil Serum. I had my eyes on Decleor beauty products for some time and this little sample only increased my curiosity. Oil serum has a delicate orange blossom scent and a very soft, silky texture. Despite being an oil, it absorbs perfectly without a shine after few minutes.

According to the brand, this oil serum is ideal for all skin types, particularly those with dehydrated, slightly unbalanced or dull, lifeless skin. Decleor Aromeessence Neroli Hydrating Oil Serum is free from preservatives, mineral oils and colourants. Active ingredients are Neroli Essential Oil, Parsley and Sage.

This oil serum calmed my "cleansing mess up" irritation and aided in fast skin recovery. I would give Decleor Aromeessence Neroli Hydrating Oil Serum 5 stars out of 5 for its formula and results. Beautiful skin oil to add into my beauty wishlist.

Have you tried any from above? What are your impressions?

My under the tree treats - 2016/2017

Festive period is behind us and I though to share what my boys treated with this year. 

My number one favourite is Decleor Paris Box of Secrets Calm Headspace: Harmonie Clam soothing light cream 50ml, Aromessence Rose D'Orient 5ml and Aroma Confort Moisturising Body Milk 100ml. What a delight to explore some of Decleor, promise to review when empty.

I usually don't by celebrity perfume, but do love Sarah Jessica Parker. I used to wear Covet Pure Bloom, sadly it isn't available in store in UK any more, so my second choice goes to Lovely. I got this huge gift set to enjoy in 2017: Lovely Eau De Parfum 100ml, EDP Rollerball 10ml, SJP Compact Mirrror and SJP Clutch Bag.

I found another of my favourite scents under my tree this year - DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossom. It came with a scented body lotion 100ml. Beautifully floral and fresh, will keep it for spring/summer time.

The last, but not least - Heathcote & Ivory Blush Rose Hand Lotion 2x 300ml to keep my hands I guess soft and beautiful in the new year.

Big thank you to my two loved boys. Feel a little be spoiled in these pink treats!

What was your favourite beauty treat under the tree this year?
Best wishes for 2017...
