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~

I chose the lip blush because it’s easy to wipe off! Since I don’t want to sweat in a boiling factory with lipstick all over my face, haha!
I’ll be back tonight but now it’s time to earn some money *I’m so nervious!*.

See ya and have a nice Tuesday! // Nancy

Glossybox Sweden May 2013

Finally picked up my Glossybox yesterday and as you all know, this will be my last one (for real this time haha)! Even though this isn’t products I’d usually be stoked about… I’m actually very satisfied with this box~
May’s theme is Magical Beauty and there’s no makeup in it (in mine at least) but products that are good for your hair and skin now that it’s summer.
Soooo let’s see what I got!

IMG_08651. Wen Sweet Almond Mint Cleansing ConditionerIMG_0860

This product states to be everything in one: shampoo, conditioner, hair mask and styling product. It also cleans your hair without stripping it of its natural oils, strength or shine.
It sounds too good to be true, all I’m wondering is “what’s wrong?”… maybe the price. It’s 299 SEK for 480 ml (which is a lot of product). I won’t be buying it though since I’d rather spend 299 on something more fun!

2. Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps Organic Citrus Castile Liquid SoapIMG_0861

One of the finest ecological & fair trade-marked soaps for body and face from a company that’s been going for 150 years so far. It’s made from coconut-, olive-, jojoba- and hamp oil + essential oils.
It’s a very liquidy soap and it smells just like Burt’s bees lemon butter cuticle cream, it’ll be very interesting to use!
The full-size product is 99 SEK for 236 ml.

3. Puma Sync Deospray + EdTIMG_0862

Exotic and fruity smell from papaya, mandarin, orange, lotus, rose, white peach ect.
I’m actually already in love with Puma deospray’s (I’ve tried two other ones), I think they smell good and last all day so it was nice to get a little can I can take with me. I don’t use fragrances so the EdT isn’t really interesting for me but I think it was cool that the one time I get a fragrance sample (which I’ve been hoping not to get since I started subscribing), it’s also a deospray with it and not a lotion.
The full-size EdT (40ml) is 219 SEK and the deospray (150 ml) is 99 SEK.

4. Color Club Age Of Aquarius NailpolishIMG_0863

Trendsetting Color Club has existed since 1979 and they are apparently showing us this summer’s color.
Funfacts: 1. I’m an aquarius 2. I love when they name colors funny/beautiful names 3. I just coloured my hair turquoise 4. I love matching.
This nail lacquer is meant for me haha! :D It’s too bad they don’t have the name anywhere on the bottle though :c
This polish is 69 SEK/15 ml.

5. Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Sun Lotion SPF 15IMG_0864

A sun lotion which acts like a filter against UVA and UVB + infrared beams. It also contains nourishing botanical extract.
The lotion itself looks like the bottle (which is cool) and it smells so good (not at all like the awful smell of sunscreen). I’m really bad with using protection against the sun since I don’t get sun burned (which isn’t actually an excuse) and I really don’t like how sunscreen smells or feels on my skin. But this one might make me better with using it. I’ve also considered buying some kind of spray (don’t know which one though).
The full-size product is 109 SEK/80 ml.

g4bqwi48yxoyt9zv0bn5We also got a Femme Natural Boost energy drink but since a lot of people got an old can (their official fb-site says that they labeled the cans wrong though… which is questionable. How is that even possible?), it’s been drama over that. I’m not affected though, mine is fine till next year C:

That’s that people, my Glossybox period is over but it was fun while it lasted. I liked being a costumer until a few weeks ago. We’ll see if I’ll come back some time (for the special boxes maybe) or if new boxes will be available in Sweden! :D

I’m going to sleep over at a friend’s house today and tomorrow I got invited to a BBQ on my friends neighborhood’s island. I won’t let down The Red Lippy Project but I might fuse together day 1 & 2 if I can’t upload posts at my friend’s house! ^^ See you tomorrow or on Monday!

I’m going to bed now, I’ll see you tomorrow! I just have “kick-out of love” tomorrow (last time to hang out with the teachers before we graduate). Graduation on Wednesday. Crazy.

Good night!

Glossybox Sweden: Mother’s Day box.

Good afternoon!
I got the Mother’s Day Glossybox yesterday. We have mother’s day on Sunday so that’s why (I know that the USA had it on the second Sunday of May)~
It’s a special box with 6 full-size products but one is smaller than expected. Glossybox stated in a mail that it was full-size but it’s much smaller than the promised one. There’s a pump bottle that contains the amount stated on the card… just saying.DSC_1088 I haven’t decided yet if I’ll keep mine since I’m not certain I’ll even use half the products in the box. It’s good that we’re allowed to sent the box back though and get a refund.
I’ll show you what I got but I won’t do as I usually do since I don’t feel like commenting everything! If you want to know more about the products, Google is your friend! c;

1. Becca Cosmetics Crème blush in Hyacinth DSC_1090

2. Bellápierre Cosmetics Super lip gloss in RaspberryDSC_1091

3. Emite Makeup Professional makeup sponges FlowerDSC_1096

4. MeMeMe Cosmetics Eye Inspire mono eyeshadow in FrostedDSC_1093

5. Macadamia Healing oil treatmentDSC_1094

6. Monu Professional Skincare Recovery balmDSC_1095

The only thing I want to keep is the creme blush and I’m not even sure I’m going to use it since I already have creme blushes.
This wasn’t really for me (or my mom), I was expecting the New Year’s box-feeling but this wasn’t even close :c
Oh well, I’ve seen people who is satisfied with their products and that’s great!

I’m not that hyped on Glossybox anymore but the May-box should arrive next week and that will definitely be the last Glossybox for me.
I wasn’t even planning on getting it but they took money from my account (even though I hadn’t filled in my information) and apparently they avoid the question if you ask them if you can cancel your order. Urgh.

I’ll see you next week with the last Glossybox post!

Glossybox Sweden April 2013

Good morning! My April Glossybox arrived on Thursday but I was too busy to write about it~

I’ve decided that this will be my last Glossybox for a couple of months since I’ve to save for the trip to London this summer. I won’t get student grant during the summer either so… I’ll be broooke! ;w; I really need to cut back on unnecessary things too, haha.

Anyway, April’s box is called Spring clean your beauty and I’m really happy with what I got, especially the two full-sized products!IMG_0830

1. MARIA NILA STOCKHOLM Palett Masque, Luminous Colour

IMG_0827 IMG_0828 IMG_0829This hair mask smells A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. I can’t even describe how good it is! >w< I haven’t tried it yet but if it’s like every other product I’ve tried from Maria Nila… it’ll be awesome!
This product is full-size and costs 199 SEK/250 ml.

2. Tancan Bronze Self-Tanning SprayIMG_0832

I read self tanning spray in the car and started laughing… just no. I’m not a fan of tanning since I don’t even have to sit in the sun to get a tan! :’D
My mother will get this one, haha!
This is not a full-size product but 250 ml costs 299 SEK.

3. FÄRG Eyeshadow palette

IMG_0833 IMG_0834Färg = color in Swedish. I remember seeing these palettes in another box but I didn’t get it. I was happy then because the girl that showed her unboxing got some pretty boring colors. I was lucky enough to get colors I use often! These can be applied dry or wet (I love when you can do that).
This is a full-size product and they cost 249 SEK.

4. Vichy Normaderm Hyaluspot

IMG_0835This product sounds like an eight wonder or something! “Makes pimples disappear in 24 hours”… I really hope that it keeps what it promises!
This is not a full-size product, in fact, it’s tiny… but the full-size one costs 159 SEK/15 ml.

5. Balance Me Super Toning Body Wash

IMG_0836I thought this was a The Body Shop product first (but it clearly says balance Me on the bottle)! I’m not really a fan of getting body washes in the box but it was a long time since I got one so it’s fine!
This is not full-size and 260 ml cost 105 SEK.

That was all!
Even though I said this will be the last Glossybox in a while… it’s not actually true. I’m going to unbox the “Mother’s day”-box too! So look forward to that~ It will definitely be the last one in a while though!

See ya!23ab2b9543992e0e527b1392325b549c-84077534

Makeup of yesterday: It’s all about the wings!

… winged eyeliner, that is!Skärmavbild 2013-04-27 kl. 00.31.16 Skärmavbild 2013-04-27 kl. 00.31.22

Thick wings are so nice when you are too lazy or sick to wear much makeup!

Skärmavbild 2013-04-27 kl. 00.31.26

Mixed my lenses yesterday. Because the other red lens had dried up… it’s fine now after it’s been in solution for a few hours! I liked the subtle hint of different colored eyes.

Makeup of the day: Powder pink

I chillaxed all morning (because I woke up early) so I could take my time with everything, and still blog *weekday luxury*! c: I start 12 today but I’m heading out soon to sit in school with Marcus and read about Shakespeare.
Have a nice day!

Swedish Glossybox March 2013 – The Red Carpet Box.

Hi ladies (and maybe some guys)!

The March box is a little late but it’s fine… it’s fine. Easter messed everything up I guess.
IMG_0780Anyway! As you can tell from the title, this box is dedicated to the red carpet look a.k.a. beauty in the moment. They’ve focused on mouth, lips and skin.
Let’s see what I got in my box! :D

1. Smile lab Advanced Teeth Whitening Strips SensitiveIMG_0791

“Take care of your smile and get white, fresh teeth! These newly launched, gentle whitening strips also give you better oral hygiene by removing bacteria and plaque.”
I’ve never used anything like this so I’m curious to try it! ^_^ There’s three strips in the card.
The original product contains 15 strips for 499 SEK.

2. Da Vinci Cosmetics Mineral Shimmer in 08 LavaIMG_0784

“This mineral eyeshadow from Da Vinci sparkles as beautiful as Mona Lisa’s smile! Wet the applicator for added intensity or use a thinner one to applicate the eyeshadow as an eyeliner.”
When I saw ColourIt‘s Glossybox, I really hoped that I would get this products because I love products you can wet  to get a more intense color (like the So Susan-palette in the December Glossybox)!
This is the original product and it costs 169 SEK.

3. Garnier Skin Naturals Pure Activate 2-in-1 Make-up Remover GelIMG_0792

“Effectively cleans your skin gently while all traces of makeup are removed. Can be used by all skin types (even sensitive) and prevents blackheads and shiny skin.”
This is a product I’m looking forward to try! ^_^ It seems perfect for teenage skin (so I’m also going to make my brother try it) and 2-in-1 products are perfect for someone like me, that breaks habits all the time.
This is the original product (200 ml) and it’s worth 85 SEK.

4. The Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Cream + Nourishing Night CreamIMG_0794

“Lightweight day cream that hydrates and protects as well as a rich night cream that softens and nurture, an unbeatable duo for beautiful skin! The secret is the powerful antioxidant vitamin E.”
I really like The Body Shop as a company (their way of thinking is awesome)! The creams doesn’t smell amazing but I’m sure they’ll do their job.
They are not original product (only 15 ml compared to the original product’s 50 ml) but the day cream costs 129 SEK and the night cream costs 175 SEK in the store.

5. Jelly Pong Pong Lip Blush in red(?)IMG_0798

“Newly launched lip blush with beeswax that gives your lips a nice color while moisturizing and softens. Apply generously and let the light texture melt on your lips.”
Never going to get tired of getting lip products in my Glossybox ❤
Jelly Pong Pong has the two bunnies-logo on their products, which means that they are cruelty free *wooh*!
This is the original product and it’s worth 129 SEK.

Skärmavbild 2013-04-04 kl. 18.37.26Me and my brother, both wearing the lip blush, haha! :D

I’m very satisfied with the March box, like everybody else it seems. I’ve seen many state that this is their best box so far. I can’t really decide though! I’ve liked almost all of them (and those I haven’t liked that much has had at least one amazing product).

One positive thing with getting the boxes late is that we won’t need to wait as long as we usually do till this month’s Glossybox! See you next time~
