Hello ladies. Today I have a very interesting post for you. I recently received an amazing gift by my amazing sister (her blog). It's my very first Mac product and it is this gorgeous lipstick. I couldn't have been more happier with this because out of all products she could've chosen she gave me the one I will use the most. When I'm doing my makeup, the best thing to apply is any sort of lip product. I became really obsessed with them and I especially like wearing more red, orange and purple shades, whereas Maja likes the nudes more (we kind of don't match in this area :P). Anyways I'm sure you've all guessed by now that I will do a review on this lipstick and let's see if it's really worth the money.

Ever since I started watching Youtube videos and beauty gurus I got a bit curious about the high end makeup products. I saw so many bloggers talk about so many brands and their products and it really intrigued me to have some but that of course wasn't possible for a 16 year old me so I was 'stuck' with the drugstore products (which a lot of them are actually great). Now this has ended because of my first high end product.

Lipstick is in the shade called Quelle Surprise and it is this deep purply colour which is absolutely perfect for fall/winter. I would wear it more in winter because of its intensiveness (is that a word?). The packaging is the standard one-black/silver. When I first got to hold this product I noticed that the packaging doesn't feel and it doesn't look cheap. It's actually quite heavy in comparison to drugstore lipsticks. So that was a nice thing to experience but then again it never really bothered me if the packaging didn't look so 'expensive' (unless it broke immediately...).

It has a nice smell and when I first applied it, it had a quite creamy consistency so it doesn't have a matte finish. It also says on the packaging: 'Cremesheen Lisptick'. Because it's such an intense colour I used it in combination with lipliner which was by a brand S-he in the shade 003 and let me tell you guys that it matched perfect and it was only around 2 or 3 €. You can tell that it's not the best quality but I don't care because it's less than a freakin' Mac lip liner which is 16,50$. I like this alternative.

So I really liked this product and the richness of the colour. The next thing I really liked about this product is that it kept my lips hydrated. I didn't have a feeling of my lips being dry so that was a big plus for me.
The only thing that it did bother me was the staying power. The staying power for me wasn't very good. I mean it did last a good amount of hours. I think it lasted around 3 hours without re-applying it but while I had it on my lips I didn't feel quite relaxed. I felt it on my lips so I was nervous all the time if I smudged it, is it still on... It almost felt like it was to heavy for me. Maybe I put too much on my lips but it did feel really heavy. It's like it was saying to me: 'I'm here, be careful.' Emm, what?

Overall I was/am really content with the product and I am so grateful to Maja. I like the product, I like the colour she picked and I really like that she helped me experience my first high end product. I can see what the fuss is all about when it comes to this brand. In terms of lipsticks I was thoroughly impressed because when you apply it on your lips it feels really smooth and you don't need to apply multiple coats to get that strong colour.

This was my review I really hope you enjoyed it. Do you have any Mac products? I would like to know how do you feel about them. Let me know in the comments below and I will talk to you very soon with another beauty related post? Who knows :D Have a lovely day.

Hello reader. Long time no see...

It's a new year and that means a great time to start something new. I should probably update you on what's been going on in my life. Not much to be exact. I got a job in October and I worked there untill January. I decided to quit it because in January I need to study for my exams that start in February. Basically I decided school was a priority and that I need to finish it in time (if possible).

I also had a bit of a problem with the social media/phone. I got so fed up with everything. I kind of got lazy and didn't want to check my mail or any other social media accounts and honestly I had no problems with that. I loved just going to work and go somewhere with my friends. That's what I've been doing the last 2 months. It's quite a long period I know. Now I started being more active and I also watched other bloggers and they made me miss blogging. So here I am.

Things haven't changed. I am still obsessed with Booktubers. I still love watching their videos and I am so tempted to try to film a book haul or something related with books but I am just not yet up for it. I am a chicken I know. I can stick to my blog where I can write everything down and I can also take some pictures and edit it. That's a less scarier way of sharing my thoughts. Maya is still studying abroad but is coming home in a few weeks and then it's time we make a plan. We are going to plan every single day so that we don't neglect our blogs and Youtube channel. I said to her that it would be awsome if we reached 50,000 subcribers on Youtube this year. It is a bit high but we can try and we'll be able to see if we can stick to things (I am so bad at this...). So this is kind of my 2016 resolution/goal and I also decided I'm going to write down every book I've read in 2016 (I already read 2... yaay...).

So I am here today with a bookish post. I decided to show you my small collection of bookmarks. I recently entered the world of bookmarks which means I discovered so many amazing bookmarks that just makes me want to have them all... But that's not possible because then I would have more bookmarks than the actual books. I have some ordinary bookmarks and magnetic ones and the ones with cute qoutes on it. Little bit of everything.Without further ado, let's dive into some bookmarks.
