Lyko competition, Team Colourit.se!

Sunday~, Sunday~ and even though I don’t have school or work tomorrow I feel slightly sad that it’s Sunday >w< So instead of just sitting here and do nothing I decided to finish an entry to a competition I said I would enter!

Here’s my entry, the “beauty kit” I want to win together with her pick of products for around 600 SEK:NamnlösFrom left to right:
DuWop’s Lip Venom 
The Balm’s Stainiac
NailTwist
The Balm’s Pick Up Liners (Mickey)
Lee Strafford’s Dry SchaMPOO

Med detta bidrag är jag med och tävlar i Lykotävlingen som anordnas mellan bloggarna Colour it,  Imakeyousmile,  Idasbeauty samt  Cuponation.se.

I picked products I’ve never tried before (but believe I’ll use a lot) and things that would “complete” what she picked. c: I also really like that everything would look pretty together on a shelf or in your toiletry bag.

The competition end in three hours so I hope she wins and picks me! ^^b

If you wants to see what she picked, click here to get to her blog post.

See you tomorrow or on Tuesday! Have a lovely week~

First package from Pinky Paradise!

Hi guys! I’m back with a beauty-post *woohoo* and it’s my first impression of Pinky Paradise’s service. ^_^
I’ve never ordered anything from Pinky Paradise before because I didn’t feel the need to buy new lenses since I had my disney lenses and a pair of brown, leopard-print ones. Those expired not too long ago though so I decided to buy new ones!
I ordered two pairs, a red and a grey pair (first review will be up on Friday and I’ll start with the grey ones). Never had those before because I felt I should try different colors. So I ordered them on the 31st of March and they arrived today… which means that they took 9 days (including the packing) to arrive! On their site it says 14-25 day so that’s what I expected. A very pleasant surprise though!

This is what I got:DSC_0937✩ GEO Xtra WT B38 Red
✩ GEO Xtra WT B65 Grey
✩ Two lens cases
✩ Velcro hair pads
✩ “Eyelid” patches (actually under-eye pads, haha)

Now, I only payed for the lenses. You get a case for each pair you buy and the two other item’s are the “code-gifts”. I entered my NYANCY-code (explained on the left side-bar) which gets me a free gift per pair of lenses. 2 pairs = 2 gifts! Super nice. Anyone can use it btw! :DDSC_0940The lenses came well packed in foam (the pink rolls) and everything else laid comfortably with them.

Over-all I had a very good first impression of the company! Their lenses are cheap, the shipping was great and they are very helpful (I’ve talked to Jason several times now and he is awesome).
Definitely buying from them again~

Maria Nila products from Glossybox!

Good afternoon, people! ^__^/

I announced on my Twitter a week ago that I was one of the first 50 to buy from GlossyBox.se’s Facebook shop and therefor would be getting two full-sized products from Maria Nila! They arrived yesterday and I was very exited~

Skärmavbild 2013-03-13 kl. 11.58.07They came in the usual outer Glossybox-box. And the products we got are Maria Nila’s finishing spray and instant shine.Skärmavbild 2013-03-13 kl. 12.03.19

The finishing spray is discribed as “a spray that keeps the hairstyle in place after drying and gives lasting hold. Easy to brush out and doesn’t leave any residue. Contains UVA-UVB filters.”
I tried it when I got home and it really does keep its promise! I sprayed my bangs upwards and to the side (and they stayed there, which is an achievement in itself), waited for the spray to be completely dry and then brushed the product out. You wouldn’t have guessed that I had had anything in my hair. I’m loving this product already! It also protects the hair from UV-light, which is really important, especially when summer comes.

On the back of the shine spray it says: “Gives hair intense shine. Can be used as a leave-in conditioner (do not rinse  product from hair) after shampooing or as a finishing product after blow-drying for shine.”
I was a little skeptical to this one before receiving the products because Glossybox described it as a product used after blow-drying and I don’t blow-dry my hair! But as it said on the back, I’ll just use it when I’ve washed my hair instead. ^_^ I haven’t tried this one yet but I need to wash my hair today so I’ll do it later!

If you received the hair oils in your February Glossybox and love the smell, these products smell the same! I would really like a dry shampoo that smells the same and after using trustful Google, I found the Maria Nila Kolorit Dry Shampoo:maria nila kolorit dry shampooIt sounds promising since it’s a dry–shampoo for colored hair and I’m planning to color mine soon but I have a question, has anyone tried this one? Is it good and does it smell like all the other products? I’m wondering this because the bottle looks different from the ones I got.

Well, that’s all I got to say~
Thank you Glossybox and Maria Nila for the products.
Looking forward to March’s Glossybox, it’s a few weeks until then through.

See you later!
