YOUTUBE CONTEST♥

Hello my lovelies! How are you? I'm currently incredibly busy and overwhelmed because of my finals but I just had to share my video with you.
It's part of a greek competition for new youtubers-hence me speaking Greek XD! Many people from all around Greece sent their submissions and the people organising the contest chose the top 100. Mine included! I couldn't believe it, to be honest^^
Now it's up to the crowd to decide their top 20 picks. I don't see mine winning but I'm still proud that I got some sort of recognition and, of course, I'm proud for my effort and the result. 
The contest ends in 5 days and I finally got the chance to share it with you. I would really appreciate it if you could check it out and give it a thumbs up if you enjoy it. Even if you can't understand greek you can just mute me and watch the tutorial:P
I hope you like it! Let me know in the comments below♥

100 HOT BEAUTY PRODUCTS-FALL'15

Hello my darlings! How are you all today? I'm currently a little sick and also anxious because I have a bunch of things to take care of and nothing seems to go the way I want it too.
But anyway, I try to stay positive. After all, this is a happy and positive place. And today's post is definitely a very happy one. You probably know that I am a little obsessed with Polyvore, especially when it comes to creating things for the blog. That slideshow tool is truly life changing because I can share with you as many products as I want without having to create a ginormous post. 
Today I decided to show you some of the newest-and best-beauty products for the season. Beauty is my weakness, we girls have that in common ^* In this collection I wanted to include both high-end and drugstore options and also some oldies but goodies(like the Maybelline Age Rewind). There are no nail polishes since I already went crazy there on a previous post. Everything else is here though, so you simply have no excuse not to be updated for the hottest beauty products for fall, from now on. Just kidding XD
I hope you guys like my picks. Let me know what you think and what are your holy grail products for fall, in the comments below♥

OLIVIA PALERMO FOR CIATE♥

Good day my loves! How are you all? I'm currently preparing for a party but I thought I should squeeze in some blog time. The truth is that I've been meaning to make this post for a while now, but something else always came up. 
You probably already know that Olivia Palermo collaborated with Ciate London to create her own makeup line. I decided to show it to you here anyways because I think it's really beautiful and versatile and, of course, perfect for fall. 
According to the reviews the colors and the formula are great, even though the selection is quite limited. I think that these products would look flattering on most skin tones and compliment nicely the facial features. Mostly warm toned, they will go well with many different outfits and make the transition from day to night much easier.
The only downside for me is the price. But we already knew that this is the price range of the brand. It's not that they raised the prices because of O.P. 
Now to the important part. Is it really worth it? Well, I would say no! I absolutely adore Olivia and I think she has an amazing taste and style. But all the products are very basic, very common. There is nothing here that we haven't seen before. You can definitely find some really great and cheaper alternatives pretty much anywhere.
What about you guys? Have you tried any products from the new collection? What are your thoughts? Let me know in the comments below♥

FALL 2015 NAIL POLISH♥

Hey guys! How is your weekend so far? I'm preparing for a pampering night-in as we speak! I know, big plans for Saturday night huh? XD Before we start I wanted to let you know about a special category that I'm hosting here for a month. It's about the "Single girl's 30 day challenge". There is a whole new page about it so go and check it out here, because I think you will be interested! Anyway, I don't want to ramble because I'm too excited for today's post.
If you've followed my blog for a while you probably know that I am a nail polish junkie. A makeup junkie in general, but I have a special place in my heart for nail polish! And new season means new shades!
I don't want to start talking about it but, unfortunately, summer has come to an end! In my opinion, we should all keep our memories inside our hearts and move on with our lives. After all, there are plenty of things to be happy about during the fall. New nail polish is one of them. Use the arrows to watch the slideshow on the top and read my caption for each color family^* Enjoy♥

SPRING 2015 BEAUTY ESSENTIALS♡

Spring 2015 Beauty Essentials♥
Hello guys! How are you? Holidays are over now, so how good can you really be right? No! There are still plenty of things to be happy about. And, of course, one of them is spring! What better thing than blossoms and amazing colors and wonderful weather? It seems like it's time to change that makeup bag of yours! 
As always, I got your back. I put together a list with all the beauty holy grails that will keep you satisfied and looking flawless.
  • First, I think that a BB cream is the best option for spring. It offers good coverage, while protecting your skin and having a decent SPF, without looking cakey. Find the one that suits you the best and I'm sure it will become your biggest necessity.
  • I always like to smell good and this Victoria's Secret set is just perfect because it offers lotion and cream and body mist. What more do you need?
  • Rosy flushed cheeks are always a must and I believe that Nasrs "orgasm" is too!
  • Then of course you need a lip balm because unfortunately lips still get chapped. Whether it's EOS or Baby Lips or anything else you like, it works!
  • I have been obsessing over liquified lipstick for like a year now and I think that this one by Too Faced in "Melted Peony" is just perfect for spring. 
  • I think I've heard like a zillion people talking about the Roller Lash mascara by Benefit and I believe it's super good too. Who's ready for some spring va-va-voom?
  • Then, you obviously need powder even if you don't have oily skin. Powder just makes your makeup stay on longer and will prevent your spring sweat from ruining it. 
  • When it comes to eyeshadow I like to keep it simple and neutral during spring. No more black smokey eyes, I'm afraid XD
  • I am probably one of the biggest fans of dark nails, but in springtime I just can't get enough of the dreamy, romantic pastels.
  • Since the weather is getting warmer and your pants and dresses are getting shorter, a shaving cream is a total must-have, especially if you shave everyday like I do.
  • Lastly, you need a spring themed makeup bag to brighten up your bag and your mood!
So, these are my beauty essentials for spring! If you want to check out some SPRING FASHION ESSENTIALS then you should totally visit Amy's blog fashionglaze.blogspot.co.uk This post was a collab with her. Her blog is so cute♡
I hope you guys enjoyed this post! What are your spring essentials? Let me know in the comments below♥

CINDERELLA x MAC

Hello everyone! How is your day going? I hope that you are all well:)
Now, in case you were searching for a break from reality, a little time travel to your childhood, just to get in touch with your younger self, then you have come to the right place. No, I didn't build a time machine, but I have Mac's latest collection, inspired by Cinderella!
They have had plenty of other marvellous Disney collections in the past and this one is no exception. Cinderella was the first Disney princes I ever had and I kept watching her movie over and over again in our old VHS player. So, you can guess how excited I was when I saw the collection. There are 17 products, from lippies and eyeshadows to brushes. Most of them are quite light and neutral-pink-gold but there also some darker shades. The items that I definitely would buy are the eyeshadow palette and the lipsticks.
But, I think most of these are pretty awesome and perfect to recreate Cinderella's romantic, innocent look, maybe with a twist. If you're a fan of the dark side, there are some products inspired by her evil step family too.
What about you guys? Did you get any of the products? Which Disney Princess is your favorite? Let me know in the comments below♥

 217 Blending Brush ($24)
 Beauty Powder in Mystery Princess ($28)

NYX SPRING♥

Hello everyone! How are you? Doesn't it feel good finally being able to relax a bit after a terrible week? Sure does for me! Ok, this week wasn't entirely awful, because Nyx came to cheer me up!
Most of you probably know NYX. If not, it's an affordable makeup brand widely loved for the quality and variety it offers in a good price. The people from Nyx here in Greece were kind enough to send me some products to try out. I was so excited! I got a palette, a lipstick and a lip liner.
"Spring Fling" palette is seriously so cute. It has a magnetic closure and a little drawer that opens with a pink ribbon. The whole look of it just makes me want to wear my spring clothes even though it's raining outside. It comes with 12 eyeshadows, 2 blushes and 2 lipglosses. The glosses are pretty sheer and great to put on over lipsticks and the blushes are buildable and have a nice finish.
The colors of the eyeshadows kinda scared me at first. If you know me, I usually go for either grey or brown eyeshadows, so this palette sure was a challenge. Although, when I tried them, the colors were much more pastel and light. This makes them easier to wear but, on the other hand, you need to to add at least 2 coats for the color to show off well. Maybe it's because my skin is so very light. But the quality is good and if you use your fingers the result is more pigmented. Wait for an upcoming tutorial using these adorable colors^*
The lipstick is called "Big Cherry" and it is a cherry red. I didn't quite realise the term "butter lipstick" until I swatched it. It's so soft! The color payoff here is great but you can also get a more sheer result if you use a lip brush.
The liner is "Edge Pink" and it's truly a bold hot pink with a bit of shimmer. It's not hard or dry on the lips and it stays on for long. 
I thought I should mix these two and I got this lovely color♥
I really liked all the things they sent me and I really hope they'll send me more in the future. As I mentioned, I will definitely do some tutorials with these products

Thanks again NYX

LIQUID BATTLE

Here is one time that my title might have confused you. I'll explain. But, first things first (I'm the realest XD), have a nice month everyone!!! I couldn't be happier that January finally came to an end. Worst month so far, but I'm trying to remain optimistic. Let's hope that February will rock!
We all know how much I love to ramble, especially when it comes to my blog, but I'm too excited for today's post and I can't wait to show you.
Let's start with a little intro. We all know, and love, the good old lipsticks. Generations of women have been using them for so many years. Some of them have become truly iconic, like Marilyn Monroe's siren red. We all have them, we all use them, we all have a special place in our hearts for them.
Then God created the lipgloss. Young ladies' answer to the sophisticated and safe lipstick. Shiny, sometimes bold, fresh and easy to work with. You really can't have enough of them in your collection. Plus, you can use them on top of your favorite lipstick. Win win.
And then, suddenly, women all around the world started to use the lip pens. Unlike the lip liners, these weren't dry at all. On the contrary, they were moisturising, creamy and offered the effect of a glossy or a matte lipstick. Easier to apply, offering more precision and also twist-up. True handbag essentials.
Now, I'll skip the stains and the balms and so many more 21st century obsessions, because I have to get to the point.
The liquid lipsticks!
Yeah, that's right, we're going to go through some of the best liquified lipsticks. The trendiest beauty addiction of the moment that is going viral. And because you know me, and I kinda know you, apart from the well-known, high end stuff, I have some ridiculously affordable options for you! Now, if you don't know yet what exactly this is, let me enlighten you. It’s like a lip gloss with the opaqueness of a lipstick and the staying power of a lip stainSay whaaaaaat? Now that I've intrigued you, let's get into the actual post.
Let's start with the product that really helped spread the word about liquid lipsticks. Yes, I'm talking about the liquified long wear lipstick, "Melted" from Too Faced. Girls are going bananas over them. You can't blame them, especially when you look at the gorgeous new shades in the collection. 21$
____________________________________________________________________________

The ones from Girlactik are the most expensive ones that I'll show you today. Few shades are in the market but we are expecting more soon. These liquid lipsticks became quite famous because the shades were used to recreate the Kylie Jenner lip. 23$
____________________________________________________________________________

Stila made the cut with the "Stay all day" liquid lipstick with an equally high price. Pretty safe colour palette I would say. Extra points though for the literal part of the name. This thing won't leave your lips unless you want it to. 22$ 
____________________________________________________________________________

Next up is Anastasia Beverly Hills. Mostly known for the brow and contouring products, the brand sure made an impact with the new liquid lipsticks. I seriously need to get my hands on "Pure Hollywood". 20$
____________________________________________________________________________
If you're going to engage yourself in any crime, it might as well be the "Lime Crime", and especially the Velvetines collection. Not such a wide colour selection as the previous ones, but the ones they have are truly worth it! 20$
____________________________________________________________________________

Kat Von D decided to name her line of liquid lipsticks "Everlasting" and she had good reason to. Grunge girl's best friend and with the prettiest artistic packaging we could ask for. I mean, if she didn't add tattoos on her cosmetics, who would? 19$
____________________________________________________________________________
There is nothing better than a healthy Dose of Colours, when it comes to liquid lipsticks. Not a wide variety, but the extremely bold colours sure make up for that. 18$
____________________________________________________________________________
Vegan, cruelty free, 100% matte and long lasting are some of the phrases Jeffree Star Cosmetics are using to describe their velour liquid lipstick. Tempting to start with. The downside is that only 3 colours are out. 18$
____________________________________________________________________________

Now guys, what if you don't want to spend 23$ on just one liquid lipstick? If you prefer to get 4 different shades instead of one for the same price, or you want to splurge on something else or you're just on a budget, then I have some options for you too. With a little digging you can find treasures in drugstore prices.
 Let's go for the transition ones first.
Sephora always has it's own version of interesting to offer no matter what you're looking for. Sure, their "Luster Matte Long-Wear Lip Color" is not the cheapest one you can find, but it gets the job done. And the colours are pretty cute. 16$
____________________________________________________________________________
LA Splash apart from the breeziest name, technically takes up two spots in todays article with the "Smitten Liptint Mousse" and the "Lip Couture". The wildest colours and really great results for 11.98$
____________________________________________________________________________
This list wouldn't be complete without some beloved NYX. Some of the best drugstore cosmetics that have many girls swear on them. The "Butter Gloss" crashed the internet and so did their "Soft Matte Lip Cream". I just love that Athens is one of the names♥ Pretty awesome for 6$
____________________________________________________________________________
Makeup Revolution is a UK based brand that has probably one of the widest ranges of cosmetics and is also well-known for the great dupes that have been released. There are plenty of products I could mention, but I think their new "Lip Lavas" are the best fit for this post. I heard they make perfect dupes for the "Melted" ones that I mentioned in the beginning. 4.5$
____________________________________________________________________________
Makeup Academy also in UK, makes great dupes too. But the "Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer" is not here in the name of dupes. Pretty close to Makeup Revolution when it comes to price and products, in case you're wondering. 4.5$
____________________________________________________________________________
The east coast brings us liquid lipstick in the lowest price with New York Color (NYC). Smooch Proof is a quality every girl needs nowadays. Kiss without any second thoughts involving your boyfriend looking like a clown afterwards. 2.99$
____________________________________________________________________________
I think this wraps it up guys! I hope the post wasn't too long, but if only you knew how many got left out. It's not that brands like Revlon and Milani weren't good enough, but I had to stop at some point. Anyways, I hope that you enjoyed it as much as I did.
Now, if you ask me who won, since this is a battle, I simply can't answer. I can't pick which flavor of ice cream I want, so yeah, this is totally up to you. Have you tried any of these? What did you think? Which one of these liquid beauties are you eyeing? Let me know in the comments below! ♥♥♥
