Esqido Unforgettable are beautiful, handcrafted, false eyelashes. They are made of mink fur. The fur is collected from the natural shedding cycles of the mink animal, which are then sterilized. Although there are so many excellent synthetic eyelashes on the market, mink eyelashes can thank their popularity to the exceptionally fine hair. Esqido eyelashes are really excellent. They are lightweight and ultra soft and they act like natural lashes.

Unforgettable model gives a slight volume to the natural lashes and extends them. Although the volume is visible, it is subtle, and the lashes look natural.

They come in a nice white box with instructions for maintenance. With proper use, it is stated that they can be worn up to 25 times. Adhesive is not included, so it needs to be purchased separately.

I love to wear Esqido Unforgettable lashes, because of their exceptional softness and natural look.

They cost $32 (approx. £21), and can be purchased at esqido.com.

Giorgio Armani Rouge Ecstasy is a CC lipstick. CC stands for “Color & Care”. This innovative, hybrid product colors the lips like a lipstick and nurture them like a balm. It feels pleasant on the lips and it provides excellent hydration. The shade that I own is 402 Teatro. It is a beautiful, classic red shade. It is well pigmented and it is long-lasting. When the upper creamy layer is removed, the lipstick stays on lips like a stain. It has a wonderful scent. Also, I like the packaging which closes with a magnet.

Flash Lacquer is a wonderful lip gloss that has a excellent, pleasant, non-sticky texture. It is moisturizing and has a good pigmentation. It looks beautiful on the lips and it gives them lacquered look. It is odorless.

Below you can see images of the product, swatches and looks that I already posted on Instagram.

My catch: Michael Kors Selma large textured-leather tote

I love sales (who doesn’t?), and I’m really glad that I got this fab bag for 50% off. This is Michael Kors Selma large textured-leather tote and I bought it on Net-a-Porter* site, which is one of my fave sites for shopping. I wanted to buy a bag for summer in vibrant color and this one is really amazing. Its name is Mandarin, which is a red-orange shade. Selma bags come in 3 sizes and this one is large. But, it’s not too big. Actually, the size is perfect. It can be worn in two ways, because it comes with a shoulder strap that can be attached to it.

All in all, I’m in love with this bag! :x

Shopping suggestions

Unfortunatelly, this bag is not available in Mandarin color anymore, at least not on sites where I shop, but you can buy it in some other shades. Here are some of them (only Aquamarine shade is on sale)*:

Rejuvenate Microdermabrasion System is at-home alternative to professional microdermabrasion treatments. DermaTx offers 3 microdermabrasion systems: Rejuvenate (for normal to sensitive skin), Brighten (for uneven skin tone, sun-damaged and ageing skin) and Clarify (for acne, oily skin and enlarged pores).

My skin is normal, so I got Rejuvenate system which contains: Microdermabrasion Rejuvenate Cream (75 ml; 3-4 month supply), electronic hand held device, cradle, cleansing brush head and exfoliating sponge head.

DermaTx Rejuvenate Microdermabrasion System


 

Microdermabrasion treatment – directions to use:

The cream should be applied onto clean, damp skin. Then, turn on the device and in circular motions, massage the cream into the skin with the sponge applicator, for approximately 2 minutes. Do not use around the eye area, and avoid getting any cream in your eyes. Rinse off the remaining crystal residue with warm water. Dry your face and apply a moisturizer.

 

[My observations]

The treatment cream contain professional grade corundum (aluminium oxide) crystals – the same as those used in microdermabrasion machines used in dermatology clinics. So, it looks like some mechanical peel, but it shouldn’t be massaged into skin with fingers, but with device that uses sonic method. You can feel the crystals in cream under your fingers, but when you treat your skin with the help of device, you can’t feel anything. Like nothing is happening. They do not scratch the skin, not even a little, but the results are immediately visible. After the first use – the skin is deeply cleansed and becomes visibly radiant. It becomes very soft and smooth. It is recommended to use it 1-2 times a week. With every new use, the results are better. Pores are purified and minor skin irregularities are removed. After treatment, skin care products are better absorbed, which is also a big plus. The treatment is so gentle and the results are amazing, so I’m amazed with the microdermabrasion system.

Cleansing – directions to use:

The system contains cleansing brush head which should be attached to the device. You can use it on a daily basis. Remove make-up before use. Apply some cleanser to dump skin or brush head. Turn on the device and gently massage the cleanser into your skin. Use a small circular motions around the face for 2 minutes. Avoid the eye area. Rinse, pat dry and follow with a moisturizer.

 

[My observations]

I didn’t have the need to use the cleansing brush in combination with the microdermabrasion treatment. It was really unnecessary. Therefore, I tried this brush just a few times.

It is very gentle and as such is suitable for sensitive skin, but it didn’t win me over. I love that it uses sonic method, but oscillations are not as high as they are in some popular devices. For example, I compared it to Braun Face 2 in 1 device, which does a wonderful job. DermaTx device is not sufficient for deep cleansing, so it can’t compete with some famous sonic devices. It needs higher speeds. The oscillations in this device are adjusted to microdermabrasion treatment, and for it are ideal.

Conclusion

Microdermabrasion treatment that this system provide is excellent. It so gentle, but powerful at the same time. It gives amazing results. It is a good thing that the system contains a cleansing brush, which is good for some surface cleansing, but the excellence of this system lies in microdermabrasion. So I recommended buying it exclusively for that purpose. I’m sure you’d love it. :)

 

DermaTx Rejuvenate Microdermabrasion System can be bought here. At the moment, it costs £59 (approx. $92), which is a special price (introductory offer). The regular price is £79 (approx. $124).

I’ve tried four Madam Glam nail polish shades: Look At The Stars, Text me Later, Lilac Madness, and Sea, Swing and Sun.

Madam Glam nail polishes: Look At The Stars, Text me Later, Lilac Madness & Sea, Swing and SunLook At The Stars, Text me Later, Lilac Madness, and Sea, Swing & Sun


Look At The Stars
is described as a vibrant indigo shade and this one is the only one with a jelly texture.  2 to 3 layers should be applied for full opacity. Other polishes have creamy texture and 1 or 2 layers are needed for full opacity. Text me Later is a cold, dark shade of purple. Sea, Swing and Sun is a pastel blue shade, while Lilac Madness is a beautiful light shade of purple. I immediately fell in love with the last one. :x

All four colors are so beautiful. Text me Later shade is better for colder days, and this spring and summer I have been wearing Sea, Swing and Sun the most and especially Lilac Madness. These two I tested in terms of durability and I’m happy with the results, because they are long-lasting. They stayed on my nails for about 5 days.

They come in quite large bottles containing 0.5 fl. oz. (14.8 ml) of nail polish. When I first applied one of them, I wasn’t impressed with a thin brush, and a watery formula that slides down the brush fast. Also, they dry slow. But the creamy texture of the polishes is really amazing. It is very easy to work with it, they are very smooth to apply and look excellent on nails. In fact, I’d say they have cream-gel texture, especially because the finish is gel-like.

Madam Glam nail polishes are really beautiful, they have great texture and the shades look wonderful. They are cruelty-free and 5-free, which means that they do not contain the following ingredients: Dibutyl Phthalate, Toluene, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, and Camphor.
