May favourites

May has been a great month for me. It was my birthday, I spend time with friends and family and overall was pretty amazing. My beauty favourites have been almost the same as always, but I had a few new ones entering my space!

Real Techniques Blush brush
Who doesn't love multifunctional products? I don't use this for blush and when I did... well let's just say it wasn't the best. But for bronzer! And powder! AND HIGHLIGHTER! Holy moly. This is the stuff.

Essence Studio Nails XXL nail thickener
I once read a review from my friend Konstantina of GlamClub and she said this was nice for making your nails thick. I had brittle and weak nails from all the Seche vite drama I went through last month and this was cheap so I got it. This works like a base coat but I use it after my base coat (Radiant Vitamine Force). It's milky and nice and actually makes your nails thicker.

And!!! I finally figured out how to use Seche Vite so my nails won't get peeled like freaking potatoes. You apply Seche Vite just after you've applied your nail polish, while your nails aren still wet! This was all Vasso's tip, she's like the Seche Vite genious or something, because that tip was gold.

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Rendezvous
I still use my Rimmel Kate 16, but I've been seriously reloving the balm stains again. Is it the minty scent? Is it the tickling feeling? Is it that they are very easy to use when in the metro/bus/taxi? Maybe all of them together. Rendevous being a bright orange coral shade was my favourite and I enjoyed wearing it.

NYX Jumbo eye pencil in Pure Gold and Maybelline Color Tattoo in Permanent Taupe
This has been my go to combo for eyes all month long. I had completely forgotten my NYX jumbos till I saw some pictures of swatches on Instagram. I love Color Tattoos and these two together are the best for brown eyed girls like me. Plus, you get your eye make up done in 1 minute.

Caudalie Instant Foaming Cleanser
Love at first use. That is the way to describe it. I got this sent by an amazing pharmacy here in Greece on the last weeks of May but I had to include it because it has been my favourite. I love a good cleanser, and when it's from my favourite brand I can't say no. I am not really used to foam cleansers, but this one is lovely for my combination to dry skin. It doesn't leave my skin feeling tight and uncomfortable, it's like a breath of fresh air. Smells like grapes and will last me a long time. YES.

I love... Vanilla body cream
You can see at the photo this has been used even though I've had it for not so long, I have almost abused its pump. If you love Oreos, this is the body lotion for you. I want to fill a pool with this stuff and be there forever. I wanted to try out some products from this brand, it's got a hype for some time now, but I didn't know where to find it. Again, this was on the pack I got sent the Caudalie cleanser, so that pharmacy has it for sure. The thing that I liked most, is that it gets absorbed quickly.

Seventeen Pearl Finishing Powder in 01
Amazing quality highlighter which I will never run out of because it's huge. The consistency of these is like no other! I don't like glitter on my face, especially in the summer and this has really micro shimmer, that looks so natural on your skin, like you're glowing from the inside. The shade is like a golden bronze, perfect for a tan!

Kerastase Reconstructing Shampoo
I love Kerastase, even though the products are on the pricy side. I used a lot of heat this month, so I needed some extra help. I felt that this shampoo did a great job along with the mask of the same line.


The Great Gatsby

Yes I love the book, but the movie was incredible as well, especially the party scenes. I am not a fan of Di Caprio, but he was the right choice for Jay Gatsby. I was drooling at the sight of the clothes, I justlove the 20's! And Isla Fisher is my girl crush, so I was excited to see her play.

Bausch&Lomb contact lens and solution

I have sensitive eyes, but for the past months they have been really sensitive to light. I changed my contact lens to the Purevision 2 HD and my solution to Biotrue, and oh man the change! The feel is great and I have the perfect night vision right now. After years of seeing halos at night and not being able to see direct light for more than a few seconds, that was just great. If you are a lens wearer and you seek comfort, I absolutely recommend them to you.

Candy Crush

I spent so many hours playing this game! It's an app you can get on your phone or tablet, but you can find it on facebook as well. It's very addicting!

Have a great weekend!


  1. Xαιρομαι πάρα μα πάρα πολύ που ειδες το tip για τα seche vite !!! Δεν μπορείς να φανταστείς πόσο σκασμένη ήμουν που γινόταν σκ#### τα νύχια μου! Και άκουγα διθυραμβικά σχόλια και λέω "μόνο σε μένα δεν κάθονται" ? Εψαξα να δω αν συμβαίνει και σε άλλες, ωσπου και γω κάπου (στο makeupalley νομίζω) διάβασα το ανάλογο tip! Με έσωσε!! Αγαπώ το Seche όχι γιατί τα κρατάει περισσότερο, αλλα γιατι τα στεγνώνει γρήγορα και δίνει μια πολύ σούπερ γιαλάδα!

    Απο τα παραπάνω αγαπώ της seventeen to highlighter, και της Kerastase και είμαι έτοιμη να κάνω και την αγορά των real technique! (ναι, ακόμα δεν τα έχω πάρει - ντροπή μου!)


    1. Ρε τα είχα πάρει σου λέω! Και το συζητουσα και με τη Βάνα και μπήκα να διαβάσω τα comments κ λέω ωπ! τι έχουμε εδώ! Η γυαλάδα που δίνει δεν παίζεται, ότι top coat και να έχω πάρει δεν πιάνει μία σε αυτό το θέμα. Να την κάνεις την παραγγελία όπως και δήποτε, μου αρέσουν πολύ όλα τα πινέλα και ναι...άφησα στη άκρη τα MAC!

    2. Ναι,τι gel και βλακείες, δίνει απίστευτη λάμψη! Εγώ για αυτό το βάζω, όχι για να κρατάει περισσότερο !
      Λες ε ? Ε, αν και έλεγα να κάνω shopping ban, τα πινέλα εξαιρούνται! Είναι μια έπενδυση καλή, καιμιας και εγκρίνεις και εσυ :)

  2. I really need to try this nail thickener from Essence, does it work for as a ridge filler too? btw all fast drying top coats must be used on wet nail polish otherwise they do not work.

    1. Well I was cleuless then! It does work as a ridge filler! I can't say it's very thick like the Seche, it's more milky in texture and makes the nail look more "full"

  3. I have the I love..vanilla & ice cream body butter and I love it!It actually smells like Giotis cream to me..The Great Gatsby is one of my favorite books and I can't wait to see the movie-the soundtrack is great! :D

    1. Giotis! YES!!! I love the Giotis cream too, it does smell like that!!! oh the soundtrack was lovely, the one by Lana del Rey was so nice!

  4. Real techniques and candy crush! Both my addictions right now!

  5. Το vanilla & ice cream είναι από τα πρώτα στη wish list μου! Βλέποντάς το στα αγαπημένα σου η επιθυμία μου να το δοκιμάσω πολλαπλασιάστηκε!!! Φιλάκια πολλά όμορφη!!!

  6. I might have to try the I Love...brand body creams now. I tried their body wash, and I wasn't a fan. The smell was fantastic, but the lather didn't last very long.

  7. Real techniques,,δεν έχω λόγια.. και ειδικά το συγκεκριμένο είναι ίσως στα 2 πιο αγαπημένα μου! Το Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain είναι Νο1 στη λίστα μου και απορώ πως έχω κρατηθεί ακόμα :-Ρ
    Το tip για το Seche Vite ΟΝΤΩΣ πιάνει?Υπάρχει ελπίδα? Όσο το λατρεύω άλλο τόσο το μισώ αυτό το προϊόν και πλέον έχει περάσει στο κουτί με τα "παραμελημένα".. οπότε θα το δοκιμάσω σίγουρα!

    Τέλειο ποστ Όλγα, όπως πάντα..μας ανάβεις φωτιές! ;-)
