Current Favourites

Getting back into blogging big time! It's so great to find inspiration for writing after a while :) While I've been concentrating on other things, I have found some new favourites that I wanted to share.


Dark lipsticks in general are a phase I'm in right now! I used to mostly wear light shades because I felt my lips are quite small and would look weird with dark shades, but then I found liquid to matte lipsticks. They are fully matte, lining a bit outside of your natural lips is easy and unnoticeable, they stay on forever and don't bleed. The two I've been using often are in the picture: Kat von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Exorcism is a dark cool red that matches my roots. The red-brown one is by La Splash, it's called Untamed. A very 90's shade, but works well with my skin tone!

Unelma and Valo are from Mia Höytö Cosmetics. I had been using an eye cream by Louis Widmer for years when suddenly my skin decided to reject it. It was hard finding a new product that was as good, but after lots of searching, Valo is definitely the thing for me. Encouraged by Valo, I also tried moisturizer from the same company and found it equally impressive. Extra points for the pump bottle packaging! It's much more hygienic than a jar, easy to use and not prone to leaking.

The last thing is my new favourite tea! I was at friend's place and she brewed some tea, asking me if I'd like green tea or lapsang souchong. I had no idea what the last tea was, but wanted to try it. And good that I did, lapsang is excellent! It's a smoked black tea, which sounds weird, but tastes so, so good. Try some if you haven't you might be amazed! Also the packaging by Twinnings is awesome and they knew to use my favourite colours on it :>

Have you got any current favourites that world needs to know of?

  1. I'm not usually woved by face moisturizers but Balancing Day Lotion by Suki has been impressive. Works better than most mattifying primers :D. It's not probably enough moisturizing in upcoming winter months but right now I'm really enjoying it. And it's vegan & cruelty free!

    1. A lotion that works like a primer, that sounds great! I have to change for heavier lotions for winter too, but maybe I could try that next summer. Thanks for the tip!

  2. How are you finding the Kat Von D lipstick? I purchased Vampira and found it went on patchy and didn't last. It was not a long wear at all. I love the colour, but was disappointed considering how much I paid for it.

    1. I have three of the liquid lipsticks, Damned, Lolita and Exorcism. They all work nicely on my lips, but the formula seems to differ a little between shades so maybe Vampira is one that performs a little worse. Sorry to hear it isn't working on you!

  3. Täytyykin ostaa tuota tai jotain saman sarjan teetä! Olen jo muutaman viikon katsellut niitä paketteja kaupassa, kun ovat niin kauniin näköisiä :D

    1. Toivottavasti tykkäät! Mä olen ollut kova vihreän teen ja inkiväärihaudukkeen juoja, mutta tää tee oli tosi herkullista ja ihan erilaista kuin muut maustetut mustat joita oon kokeillut. Mähän oon jo yhden paketillisen juonut ja toisesta varmaan puolet, ja ostin sitä töihinkin :)

  4. Hyvä idea tehdä postaus suosikeista (voisin kopioida idean omaan blogiini). ;) En yleensä perusta Twiningsin teistä, mutta ehkä voisin kokeilla tuota ihan uteliaisuudesta joskus. Heh, mulla taas on käynyt oikeastaan päinvastoin - olen siirtynyt tummista huulipunista/kiilloista vaaleampiin, koska en halua erityisesti korostaa huuliani, mutta haluan vähän raikkaampaa ilmettä (ikäkriisi jne).

    1. Ihmisten suosikeista on aina kiva lukea, tulee löydettyä ihan uusia kivoja juttuja sitä kautta! Selvästi huulipunamieltymykset muuttuu ihmisillä kausittain, ehkä mäkin joskus vielä siirryn takaisin vaaleisiin, jos siltä alkaa tuntua :)

  5. Ghoulish by LA Splash, and Unicorn Blood and Dominatrix by Jeffree Star are my current faves. I haven't tried the Kat Von D. ones yet, but things are about to get a lot easier, as she's opening a concession in one of the nearby department stores.
