First Impresions – October Makeup Haul/ Primele impresii – cumparaturi de machiaj in octombrie

Hello everybody,

Another week, another article. Today I wanted to show you what I bought this month. To be honest, I bought more stuff than what you’ll be seeing here, but I wanted to show you just the products that got me really excited. I didn’t want to put in all the cotton pads, the tissues, makeup remover and so on.

Buna tuturor,

O noua saptamana, un nou articol. Azi am vrut sa va arat ce am cumparat in aceasta luna. Ca sa fiu sincera, am cumparat mai multe lucruri decat veti vedea aici, dar am vrut sa va arat doar produsele de care sunt foarte incantata. Nu am vrut sa scriu despre discuri demachiante, servetele, demachiant si alte lucruri minore pe care le folosesc regulat.

  • Benefit They’re Real! mascara (4g – travel size) ($12 – travel size, $24 – full size) – I told you how much I love this mascara in an empties post and lots of other articles of mine. For me this mascara works and lasts me almost 3 months, despite the fact that is a travel size one. To be honest the price of the full version is a bit too steep and I’m a person that likes to use one or maximum two mascara at a time and I have sensitive eyes so I’ll end up throwing the product out after 3 months anyway, even if the formula isn’t dry yet.
  • Benefit Roller Lash Curling & Lifting Mascara (4g – travel size) ($12 – travel size, $24 – full size) – for the same reason as above I purchased this mascara when I was in Sephora to shop for a friend. It was a good thing I got it then because a week later it was gone. I already tried it for a week and I have to say I’m super impressed! Naturally I have long, curly lashes, but this mascara really takes my lashes to another level. It separates them, it gives volume, length and more curl than they normally have. I would recommend you this one if you like a more dramatic look. I also like this mascara because the formula is pretty black, it doesn’t clump my lashes and it’s so easy to take off (the downside of They’re Real! mascara).
  • essence gel eye pencil waterproof in the shade 02 around midnight (12.8 lei) – I never heard of this product, but I saw it in the store and thought I could swatch it before I decided if I wanted anything from essence. I liked the color and after 30 seconds I wanted to wipe off the product with a dry tissue but it didn’t budge at all! I was so impressed that I took it and literally run out to the cashier to buy it. I have it for a week and a half now and it wasn’t a day were I wore makeup and not wore this product. Either I’ll tightline with it on my upper line for daytime, or I’ll wear it in the water line as well for a more dramatic look in the nighttime. PS: It’s the first eyeliner that doesn’t move on my watery and sensitive eyes.
  • Benefit They’re Real! mascara (4g – travel size) travel size (48 lei) – v-am spus cat de mult imi place aceasta mascara intr-un articol de empties si intr-o multime de alte articole de-ale mele. Pentru mine acesta mascara functioneaza perfect si ma tine aproape 3 luni, in ciuda faptului ca este varianta mica – are jumatate din cantitatea de produs pe care o are varianta intreaga. Sa fiu sincera, varianta mare are un pret putin cam ridicat, iar eu sunt oricum genul de persoana careia ii place sa foloseasca una sau maxim doua mascara in acelasi timp si am ochii sensibili, asa ca ajung sa arunc produsul oricum dupa 3 luni, chiar daca formula acesteia nu s-a uscat inca.
  • Benefit Roller Lash Curling & Lifting Mascara  (4g – travel size) travel size (48 lei) – din acelasi motiv am cumparat aceasta mascara atunci cand am fost in Sephora pentru a cumpara ceva unei prietene. Si foarte bine am facut pentru ca o saptamana mai tarziu varianta mica a produsului nu mai exista in magazin. Am incercat-o deja de o saptamana si trebuie sa recunosc faptul ca sunt foarte impresionata! Desigur am gene lungi, ondulate, dar acest produs reuseste sa aduca genele mele la un alt nivel. Acesta le separa, le ofera volum, lungime si mai multa ondulare decat au in mod normal. Va recomand aceasta mascara daca doriti un aspect mai dramatic. De asemenea, imi place acest produs fiindca formula este destul de negra, nu-mi lipeste genele si este foarte usor s-o indepartez seara cu demachiant (dezavantajul They’re real! mascara).
  • essence gel eye pencil waterproof in nuanta 02 around midnight (12.8 lei) – n-am auzit de acest produs pana acum, dar l-am vazut in magazin si m-am gandit ca as putea sa fac un swatch pe manan pana ma decid daca vreau sa iau ceva de la essence. Mi-a placut culoarea si dupa 30 de secunde am vrut sa sterg produsul de pe mana cu un servetel uscat, dar nu s-a miscat deloc! Am ramas atat de impresionat incat am luat dermatograful si am fugit la propriu spre casierie sa-l cumpar. Il am de o saptamana si jumatate deja si nu a fost o zi au fost am purtat machiaj si sa nu fi purtat acest produs. Ori conturez linia superioara a ochilor (thightline) pentru un machiaj de zi cu zi, ori il port in linia apei, pentru un look mai dramatic. PS: Este primul dermatograf care nu se misca de pe ochii mei care lacrimeaza des si sunt sensibili.

  • Zoeva 124 Grand Stippling brush (14.80 euros) – this product was purchased by my boyfriend last time he was in a business trip in Germany this month. I tried it a few times so far and I can say that the brush is soft, it feels nice on my skin, but I’m not used to using brushes for applying foundation. I think I’m just not patient enough so far. I’m used to apply foundation either with my fingers or with the Real Techniques Miracle Sponge. I’m not saying that the brush is bad, but I need to get used to use it properly. I’ll keep you updated.
  • La Roche-Posay Anthelios AC Anti-Shine Matte Fluid SPF 30 (50ml) (£16.00) – to be honest, I didn’t had a chance to try this one yet because I still have some of my Bioderma Photoderm SPOT SPF 50+.  I opted for a SPF 30 because the sun isn’t as harsh as it is in the summertime and I think I’ll finish up this bottle in less than 6 months.
  • Alverde Wild Rose Facial Oil – Anti-Ageing – With Oils of Rose-Hip, Jojoba, Almond & Peach (15ml) – I heard people talking about using oil on their skin at night and I felt the need to add this kind of product in my night routine. I didn’t want to commit to a full bottle so I was happy to find a travel size one and also I don’t want to invest a lot of money because I didn’t know how I would like it to apply oil on my face every night. So far I like it and I can see a difference in the morning. My skin feels more nourished and plump. I’ll keep you updated with my opinion on this product, at least in an empties post.
  • Zoeva 124 Grand Stippling brush (14.80 euros) – acest produs a fost cumparat de catre prietenul meu ultima data cand a fost in business trip in Germania. Am incercat-o de cateva ori pana acum si pot sa spun ca pensula este moale, se simte placut pe piele, dar nu sunt obisnuita sa folosesc pensule pentru aplicarea fondului de ten. Cred ca pur si simplu nu sunt suficient de rabdatoare momentan. M-am obisnuit sa aplic fondul de ten fie cu degetele sau fie cu Real Techniques Miracle Sponge. Nu spun ca arata rau machiajul cu pensula, dar trebuie sa ma obisnuiesc sa-o foloseasc in mod corespunzator. Va voi tine la curent.
  • La Roche-Posay Anthelios AC Anti-Shine Matte Fluid SPF 30 (50ml) (57 lei, eu l-am luat la reducere cu 34 lei) – sa fiu sincer, nu am avut sansa de a incerca acest produs pana acum, pentru ca inca mai am putin din Bioderma Photoderm SPOT SPF 50+. De data aceasta am optat pentru un SPF 30, deoarece soarele nu este la fel de puternic, momentan, cum este in timpul verii si cred ca voi termina acest recipient in mai putin de 6 luni.
  • Alverde Wild Rose Facial Oil – Anti-Ageing – With Oils of Rose-Hip, Jojoba, Almond & Peach (15ml) am auzit mai multi oameni vorbind despre utilizarea uleiului pe fata peste noapte si am simtit nevoia sa adaug acest tip de produs in rutina mea de seara. Nu am vrut sa cumpar o sticla mare, asa ca am fost foarte fericita sa gasesc varianta de 15ml, si, de asemenea, nu vreau sa investesc o multime de bani pentru ca nu stiam daca mi-ar place sa aplic ulei pe ten in fiecare noapte. Pana acum, imi place si chiar vad o diferenta dimineata. Pielea mea se simte “hranit”. Va voi tine la curent cu parerea mea aspura acestui produs, cel tarziu intr-un empties.

These were my most recent buys. I know they’re not a lot but lately I’m really happy with what I have and I don’t plan to dramatically change the products I’m currently using.

See you next week!

Acestea au fost cumparurile mele cele mai recente. Stiu ca nu sunt multe, dar in ultima vreme sunt foarte fericita cu ceea ce am si nu planuiesc sa schimb dramatic produselor pe care le folosesc in prezent.

Ne vedem saptamana viitoare!
