A new time is coming…

I’ve been preparing myself to write this post in a while now but I keep asking myself one question – how do you fit 3 years of blogging into one post? Well, not easy.

This year was quite a mess and one part of me is happy that it’s almost over, but the other part is a bit sad since everything just passed me by so quickly. This year was full of changes, for me and for this blog. As the end of the year was closer and closer I realized I have to move and and put Beauty addict behind me. I didn’t really had an idea what I actually wanted to do but I started to collaborate with Martina from Martina makeup and we made a deal: we’ll start with our own website from scratch. It’s called Beauty & Mess. It isn’t available yet but it will be launched in January. Till then, you can like our facebook page – link.

It will be strange to stop posting here but on the other hand, that is something I feel I need to do and that I need this change. I just know it will be even better than this blog and that together with Martina we’ll rock! :)

All in all, you will read my posts in the future but on another adress. This isn’t my last post here, the last one will be the moment we launch Beauty&Mess; then I’ll inform you that you can follow us there. Till then I’ll take a break for now since I have a lot to prepare for our new website and I wan’t to relax a bit too.

Thank you for making this a great place and I hope you’ll follow me and Beauty&Mess!

Sunday Love: Catrice Talk Like An Egyptian (420)

Photobucket

Martina purchased Clarins Odyssey palette (Holiday collection) and I found this palette to be really eye-catching the moment I saw it. I really wanted to buy it, especially since it has this gorgeous almost old gold shade. But, I somehow managed to reason with myself that I don’t need this palette because of one shade only :D Anyway, I tried to find a decent dupe shade which isn’t possible but I did find another wonderful golden shade among Catrice mono eye shadows so here it is, you might find it useful during this time of the year :)

This shade is called Talk Like An Egyptian (I don’t like this name at all but what can you do :D ) and it does look wonderful – in the pan and when swatched! This isn’t an intense gold shade but rather one with a bit of this old gold hint in it which I really love. You can see my swatch abelow and it was apply without any base. Lovely, right? The formula is quite smooth and I love how it applies.

In case you prefer more intense gold shades I have something for you too, it’s called Kryolan Supracolor and you can see my swatch HERE.

L’Oreal Professionnel Mythic Oil Colour Glow Oil Review

Photobucket

A while ago I’ve received Mythic Oil Colour Glow Oil for review. This product is from their new product line called Mythic Oil and beside this oil it includes:
- Mythic Oil Nourishing oil for all hair types
- Mythic Oil rich oil
- Mythic Oil reinforcing milk

My hair care is, to be honest, the same for years and I use 4 products most of the time: shampoo, conditioner, hair foam and hair spray :D True, not really innovative or anything because, first, I’m lazy and second, I don’t finde hair products to be so interesting as makeup for example.

Here’s what L’Oreal is saying about this product:
Linseed Oil:
used by painters in ancient Persia to enhance the shine of their masterpiece, this illuminating oil adds mirror-like reflection to color-treated hair.
Cranberry Oil:
this nourishing oil filled with antioxidants helps protect haircolor from fading by shielding the strand from environmental aggressors like the sun.
UV Filters:
protects hair from the harmful rays of the sun to keep haircolor looking vibrant.

During my testing period I’ve seen that this product really makes a difference when it comes to radiance. Hair is shiny and yet not oily, though this product has an oily formula. And that’s what I was afraid of but it turned out it was only my fear of having oily hair :D It can be used on wet or dry hair, however you like it. I use it ony dry hair since I always forget to use it on wet hair. It can also be used in combination with hair mask – just add two drops in it and apply it onto hair and leave it on for a few minutes. I haven’t tried that yet, but I will. Anyway, after each use hair is really glowing (not that oily glow :D ). Besides that, the other thing that really impressed me is the gorgeous scent of this product! I must say that I’d LOVE if there was a food product with such smell or taste. I’d buy it ALL! :D

This product contains 125 ml of product and it costs almost $40. I might seem a lot but this is a professional hair product so it’s a decent price. Plus, you don’t need a large amount of it for each use (you need 1-2 squeezes) so it will last for you, especially if you have shorter hair like I do.

Also, one thing that I discovered by accedent. I don’t smoke and I really can’t stand the smell of cigarettes so one day when I got home I tryed this oil to see if it would “kill” cigarette smell and well, it did do that! So, this is a HUGE plus from me!

Have you tried Mythic Oil products?

NOTD by Petra: Orly Rock it!

Photobucket

Orly Rock it is part of the Orly Mineral FX collection that is packed with duochrome lacquers, full of metallic shimmer, holo particles and the warm, dusky golden  tones.
Rock it is a duochrome nail, burgundy base with the addition of purple, full of red and copper mircoshimmer that is visible only in the sun, so this might not be the ideal time for wearing. But I think that even without the duochrome effect, perfect for the holidays.

Holiday home decor

I’m all into holiday home decor this year (I think it’s for the first time) and I keep buying holiday decor. Two last things I purchased are this lovely small mirror which I plan to put somewhere on the wall and I also got one lantern to complete evening ambience. How do you like it?
