IMG_20170424_183345_749

Stockholm Beauty Week just ended a day ago. It was wonderful 3 days from 24th to 26th of April. There were combination of beauty and food which was amazing. All the awesome brands were there together and was offering varieties of special offers for their products.

It was full of events, mingle and beauty shows. I was happy to meet in person the owners and wonderful people people working on my favorite brands. Though it had entry ticket 100 SEK but for bloggers and beauty influencers it was free of cost, instead we got a badge which made me feel honored ๐Ÿ™‚

I actually ran there for two reasons. First of all its beauty week in Stockholm so I must be there as a beauty writer and I wanted to see all amazing brands together. Secondly, my favorite GLOWiD and Sheet Happens were taking part there together. Though I was having super busy day but after work just ran there to meet them in person for the 1st time! I am so much obsessed with korean skin care products and now I know the reason why it has become such a hype! There are true reasons behind it. Nothing could be better but these different serum and masks are affordable, easy andย  best skin care options at home.

I got two new amazing masks from GLOWid which I was super excited to try. Already tried the Vita Propolis which was simply awesome and will be ordering again. The other one is TeaTree which I will let you know once I use it. I will write about all the masks in details later.

I got introduced there to another brand that is Noxidoxi a french brand and got some products from them in sample size. I am pretty impressed using them specially the cleanser which is moisturizing at the same time. I am looking forward to use more of their products.

There was also another brand that I like Face Stockholm. They are gorgeous and came with at least 20% discount offer at their stall.

There were many other different brands and bloggers visiting them which looked amazing! I loved the warm welcome with rose and chocolate at the entrance! Overall had a very nice experience! Really loved meeting the owners of GLOWiD and Sheet Happens! These girls are awesome entrepreneurs, beautiful and friendly! I am so happy that they are focusing on these sheet masks which has those ingredients that your skin actually needs to clear up. The offers and the box that they are providing are so much helpful cause it makes the decision easier to choose what to buy. Each month getting a box full of mixed skincare in affordable price is really amazing and totally worth the money!

I wish I could spend much more time there but due to all other works I could not. I am still happy that I was there!

XOXO !

Happy Wishes……………!

Hello My Lovely Readers!

I wish you all a very very happy new year! I wish that all your good wishes come true and this year becomes so beautiful to celebrate more happy years ahead. A new year starts with new hopes and we all should try to be positive in our life. Everybody has ups and downs in life which are all positive if we learn at least something from the past mistakes. Each year we grow older and the achievement is being a little more wiser from our past experiences.

My new years lovely little plant and alcohol free drink for our small celebration

31st night in Stockholm was Gorgeous. We had a late night walk in a group and went to enjoy watching the gorgeous fireworks. Stockholm city is so magicalย  during winter nights with all the Christmas lighting and decorations. It was a bit warmer last night compared to other chilling cold evenings. Everywhere there was a festive mood. This is the night when we get to see so many people gathering and it feels awesome.

I did some videos to share but in reality in looked much nicer. When you are in an environment where everyone is wishing and sharing their joy together that is a whole new heart warming feelings.

Watch the firworks

The new year started by visiting friends and I really enjoyed the beautiful sunshine of 2017.

HudaBeauty Rose Gold Palette-YES/NO!

Living in Sweden it is quiet difficult to hands on all the newly released make up products instantly. Specially if there is any limited edition or holiday palette then it is almost impossible to own that. Many products arrive when the hype is gone. For example I am still waiting to get the Anastasia Master Palette by Mario. Same thing happened when Hudabeauty released her own branded products. Her amazing products are gone within hours. After her popular lip contour contour and liquid lipsticks, actually everyone was waiting for the magical eye palette she was going to release. I started browsing the demos online and was super excited. Then the day came and she launched it in Dubai mall which was sold out before many people could reach. cultbeauty.co.uk is my favorite site cause I can atleast reach to some of my favorite products through this website like Hudabeauty.

Huda Beauty Rose Gold Palette

 

I joined the wait list in Cult Beauty website for Hudabeauty palette and finally the day came. I got notification that the palette has arrived but I was doing some assignments that time. So I thought okay it is quiet late night so I will do the payment tomorrow when I am free, simply after submitting the assignment. Very surprisingly the next day when I sat down with all my excitement to own the product I found that I have to join the waiting list once again because it was already sold out.

Now I felt upset to wait another unpredictable super long days, so thought to do little more study on the palette. Just thought to check tutorials on you tube to learn what other people are thinkingย  before I buy this most expensive palette. Till then I was sure to buy it but just because I don’t have it, I wanted to enjoy how others are playing with it. This 18g palette costs ยฃ56.00.

Actually the eye makeup that people were doing with this palette was kind of similar cause in the eye pretty much everyone was playing with particular shadows because they were thinking other colors were either not showing up in the skin or they weren’t look good on lids. I was so lucky that Eshani who is one of my favorite you tuber bought this palette and she just uploaded her review which totally changed my view on Huda Beauty Rose Gold Palette just on no time. I trust her reviews so much cause I believe we have same skin tones and yes! her honest reviews helps me a lot to decide with almost all the beauty products. So here you see her video.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IFPasVLQZ3I

I found comparisons where people are saying that the matte shadows of the palette are pretty similar with Anastasia Modern Renaissance Palette and the quality of Anastasia is much better. The only thing you have in Huda palette is the foiled shadows. But I am pretty sure the foil shadows are not for everyday and uncomfortable to use as they mentioned. So overall I have changed my mind and I think I better wait and see what comes next ๐Ÿ™‚ No more in the waiting list for Huda Beauty Rose Gold Palette. I think it is just hunger of our eyes than our needs because the palette looks beautiful what I see in the picture but I got the feelings that I do not need this anymore.

I found another useful review where you can see the comparison who are thinking which one to buy between Huda Beauty Rose Gold Palette and Anastasia Modern Renaissance Palette.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N9NwMRhIRJY

So I have taken my decision not to waste my money on Hudabeauty Rose Gold Palette instead I will buy something useful in upcoming holiday season!!!

Write to me whatever is your opinion, if any of you are enjoying this palette or hating it.

Love you all!

XOXOX
