It has been almost a year since my last post, I didn't plan to post anything now but I came here and just wanted a picture post. Those always make me feel good.

I'm always on the watch for foundations / bb creams that can give me natural look with little bit of coverage. When I'm out running errands or just groceries shopping I don't want heavy makeup but I do want something to cover up my often tired face and pale skin. Something that can be good if I need a little help to look refreshed and something I can apply quickly. Most of the time I like to use my regular liquid foundation but I don't always have time to apply a lot of makeup and sometimes I prefer something subtle. With that being said I decided to try Maybelline BB Dream Fresh. I've been using it for a while and most of the time I don't like it very much. I don't hate it but honestly it is not a product I would repurchase. After I use it up I will move on and forget about it.
On the photo above ( click to enlarge ) you can see 8 benefits this BB cream should give you but to tell you the truth most of the time when I have BB Dream Fresh on my face I don't even see the difference with and without it. Not even that "my face but better " effect which is all I ask for. Mostly it looks like I applied moisturizer. The reason why I didn't put this product aside is that sometimes...I guess when I have a really bad day my face does look little bit better. On normal day it doesn't do anything, I have to mention that I don't have any major skin problems except dark dark circles under my eyes and pale skin. I have Light Skin tone which matches with my skin tone perfectly, too perfect I would say if I can't even see it on my face. This is definitely the first time that I have something like this, something with such small effect. You can look at the swatch bellow...if you can tell on the right side I blended the product...now you can see what I'm talking about.
Application is easy, you can blend the product without problem. Durability? Well I'm not sure what to say...if it doesn't make any difference on my face then it doesn't matter, right? The coverage is very light while the texture and smell are nice. It comes in a tube and it is easy to use it, there is 30 ml of product.
In the end all I can say is Next please!

The theme for today's challenge is Home Decor Inspired. I was inspired with zig zag pattern you can see everywhere these days...on carpets, pillows, curtains... I like the pattern but I also wanted to use my new stickers for the guide because I didn't tried them yet :) I used neutral colors because that is what you could see if you come to my house. I only wish my nails were longer and I could add another zig zag line.
I used: Golden Rose 330 and Essence The Only Chance!

For the first time ever I'm early with my challenge manicure. There is reason for that... I did this one before the turn, before Silver theme. I just painted my nails and afterwords decided that I want to start the challenge right away. Since I wanted to do silver & black combo I went with third theme: Animal. I had pink base on my nails and I took Essence image plate and stamped black cats, I also did accent saran nail. This is the first time I used this cat design and I like it, especially on my long nails...which are short once again right now.
I used Essence Santa Baby and Malena 2

I'm back with nail challenge. I skipped the first challenge which was nail vinyls because I dont have them. I was looking at them on ebay recently but I didn't order them. But they are something I want to try soon. Now I'm already on 2nd theme which is Silver. I was inspired with Mickey Mouse, probably because my daughter loooves Micky and Minnie. I like the way it turned out and it is easiest mani to do. I applied silver base and added different size dots for Mickey and just random dots on my other nails.
I used Malena 2 and Essence Stamp Me! Silver
Here is the rest of the challenge and a link where you can find it.
