New arm candy

Everything from Asos.com

I've wanted some arm candy for ages now, and I finally got some! I'm not really someone who regularly wears jewelry, so this is pretty weird for me, but I fell in love seeing all these photos of people's blinged out wrists and really wanted to join the club. Let me tell you, all of this is HEAVY! It weighs my wrist down a lot, but I just love the look I get.

I'll be doing separate posts on the watch and the Disney Couture bracelet, both of which I adore. Until then - au revoir! :)

FeelUnique Wishlist!

Behold my wishlist from FeelUnique! (It's actually quite a bit longer, but these are the items I think I'll be purchasing when I get my next pay check.)

Benefit Boi-ing Concealer - Because I currently use a very beaten-up concealer from Essence, which cost me a whooping 2€ and I haven't had a nice quality concealer in ever.

Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector - Because everyone raves about them and I fear I might go out of my mind if I don't check for myself what all the fuss is about.

YSL Volupte Sheer Candy Lipstick - Because I've been lusting after it ever since I saw it on Ana's blog. I want the shade Luscious Cherry, which is a gorgeous glossy red.

Caudalie Beauty Elixir - Because I NEED IT. My precioussss! It can be used as a toner, to refresh your skin or as a setting spray for your makeup, if you feel like it's a bit caked on and you want to get a bit of a glow.

John Masters Organics Citrus and Neroli Detangler - Because my hair has been behaving badly lately and it has been extra tangled, so I really need something to make it stay silky and smooth.

Konjac Sponge with Bamboo Charcoal - Because this is the coolest thing I've seen. Ever. I don't even know how to use it properly, BUT IT MUST BE MINE!!!!!1

John Masters Organics Sea Mist - Because I've always wanted to try a sea salt spray since I'm too lazy/clumsy to make it by myself, even though it's, apparently, really easy and everyone and their mother is doing it.

Stila Kajal Eyeliner  - Because I seriously need a new flesh (God, that sounds scary) coloured eyeliner for using on my waterline - it really opens up my eyes and brightens my whole face. I do have Benefit's Eye Bright, but the poor little thing is truly on its last leg - the cap is broken and it's due a good sharpen. Apparently I'll buy a new eyeliner before I get around to actually getting a pencil sharpener, sigh, so typical...

Korres Pommegranate Lip Butter - Because these look beautiful and I'm always looking for a good tinted lip balm.

For some reason I feel like speaking with a pirate accent, so I'll leave you with the following: Keep an eye out for me booty (haul, not... ahem) after the 15th, arrrrrrrr!

A dupe for Bioderma H20?

Who hasn't heard about the Bioderma H20 Micellar Cleansing Water? It's been popping up in favourites in blog posts and in Youtube videos all over, and I'm sure it's one of the most hyped up products ever. I myself haven't tried it yet, though I plan to, but I think I found a cheaper dupe for it nonetheless. :)

Introducing the Yves Rocher Micellar Cleansing Water. I've written about this before in a haul post, but now I've had the time to really try it out and see what it's like. And can I just say - this product is AMAZING. It can be used as a makeup remover or as a toner, I personally use it for removing my makeup in the evening, but it also feels really nice on my skin, just like a toner would.

Another thing I love about this product is the lovely scent - it's very very fresh and inoffensive, perfect for those who dislike stronger scents. I honestly think everyone would like this. This cleansing water won't irritate your skin, guaranteed. It's so gentle that it will calm even the most sensitive skin. It removes my makeup completely (BB cream, blusher, eyeshadow, mascara, eyeliner) and calms my skin down as well as gets it ready for application of my nightcream.

I've seen this compared with the Bioderma on Makeupalley, so I thought it would be great to let you know that there is a cheaper alternative out there!

While Bioderma costs anywhere from 17 to 25€, you can get this for around 7€ in Slovenia, and for around 13€ in the UK. Definitely one to try, and this is truly an amazing product that should work for any skin type!
