Firmoo eyewear review

Hello sweeties! Today I'm going to talk about the latest pair of glasses I got! A few months ago Firmoo company contacted me and asked me if I'd like to try a pair of glasses and tell you people what I think about it and I certainly accepted the proposal!

I didn't really like the eye glasses I already owned and wanted to try some nerdy ones. www.firmoo.com offers a great variety of eye glasses and sunglasses and I liked several designs but chose the ones I'm going to show you in the pictures below.








What do you think ? 
  • I'm absolutely in love with them! I didn't really like myself with glasses and this is the first time in my life that I don't mind going out wearing my glasses instead of contact lenses because I think they look good on me and don't make my eyes look as small as they looked with my previous eye glasses which were way smaller.
  • The prescription was right ( I have myopia/nearsightedness) and I see really well with those glasses!
  • They came in a plastic case and a black string bag with a cleaning cloth and extra screws which I find really cool! The plastic case broke way too easily but I really couldn't care less since the glasses are so great :)
  • I think the quality is great and I really prefer them to other high end eye glasses I've owned , I don't think I'd pay that much again since I can get fashionable and quality glasses at such a cheap price (I got these for free but even if I payed for them those were only 33 dollars guys, which is such a bargain!)

I definitely recommend you to shop glasses from firmoo.com, I think they offer great products at a great price! I myself have already ordered two more pairs of eye glasses and one pair of sunglasses and can't wait to receive them! I never thought it could be so easy to grow a collection of pretty quality eye glasses at such a low price!

Now what's the best part?

You can get your first pair for FREE! How great is that? Firmoo.com offers their new customers the chance to grab one pair of eye glassesor sunglasses with or without prescription and only pay the shipping cost and not a single penny for the glasses! 
So, I've you've been wanting to get a new pair of eye glasses the time is now, it won't cost you anything at all :)

Do you own any Firmoo eye glasses? Will you be taking chance  of the offer the site is offering?
I'm looking forward to reading your thoughts!


Many kisses!

Golden Rose Matte Nail Lacquer Review/Swatches/NOTW

Hello beauties! Last night I painted my nails with a gorgeous purple matte nail lacquer which I wanted to show you and then I thought why not make a mini review as well?

It's the golden rose matte nail lacquer in shade 08 and it's an amazing purple which kinda looks blue-ish and I think it's great for winter!






What do you think?
I've already talked about Golden Rose in other posts (here) and I really like this brand and especially its nail varnishes because it offers a wide collection in really affordable prices and they are very long lasting!

I payed 2,50 euros for it and it is 11,5 ml, such a bargain, isn't it?
I own another shade of the matte collection and love it, too, I'll definitely buy a couple more!

What impressed me the most is how quickly it dried! I painted my nails with two coats and both had dryed in ten minutes! I then went to sleep and not one nail was ruined, this has never happened before with other nail varnishes! 

Ι can't really talk about the longevity because I have gel on my nails underneath the nail varnish and so every nail varnish lasts much more on my nails because of that, but I guess it's not as long lasting as the non-matte ones, one reason is you can't use a top coat over it because it will become glossy :p

Pros :

  • Wide variety of colors
  •  Decent quantity of product
  •  Great formula for quick and easy application 
  • Dries extremely fast 
  • Cute packaging

Cons:

  • May not be as long lasting as glossy nail varnishes

Overall, I think it's a great product worth trying.


Do you like matte nail varnishes? Do you own any? What do you think of the golden rose ones?
Let me know what you think :)


That's all for now, kisses!

MUA Nail Constellation in Gemini: I'm in love!

Hello beauties! Today I'm going to show you my new nails, featuring MUA Nail Constellation in Gemini. I guess most of you know this product, or have seen similar ones in other Companies, known as caviar for nails.

First I'll show you some pictures of the outcome as well as the products I used and then tell you a few things about the product.




Products used :



MUA Nail Constellation in Gemini 
Golden Rose Nail Lacquer in shade 114


This product is actually tiny metallic beads which you pour over nail varnished nails while the nail varnish hasn't dried yet, so that they can stick onto the nail.
I used uv gel underneath though, hoping they will last longer this way.
I don't expect them to last very long, but they are very beautiful and unique and they didn't cost much.
You can buy them for 3 pounds each on http://www.muastore.co.uk/, I got mine when they had the 40 % sale :)
I picked the gemini shade, but they have four more shades and I'm thinking of getting a couple extra :)

Pros:

  • They are very affordable
  • They are very easy to use
  • They come in a really convenient packaging
  • 5 shades to choose from
  • They make your manicure special


Cons:

  • May not be long lasting (depends on the base)


Have you tried them? Would you? Tell me what you think!
Stay tuned because an international giveaway is coming!
Don't forget to follow my blog and facebook page here :)

Kisses!

Inglot-Greek Beauty Bloggers event 07/01!

Καλησπέρααα! Αν και καθυστερημένα , σήμερα θα σας δείξω μερικές φωτογραφίες από το event της Inglot και των Greek Beauty Bloggers που παρευρέθηκα μετά από πρόσκληση που είχα την τύχη να κερδίσω!

Είμαι στον χώρο του beauty blogging πολύ λίγο καιρό και έτσι δεν είχε ξανατύχει να πάω σε κάποιο event ούτε γνώριζα προσωπικά καμία από τις bloggers που παρακολουθούσα, έτσι χάρηκα πολύ που μου δόθηκε η ευκαιρία σε ένα όμορφο και οικείο κλίμα να γνωρίσω κάποιες από αυτές!

Ήμασταν λίγα άτομα και έτσι το κλίμα ήταν πολύ "παρείστικο" , σε αυτό βέβαια συντέλεσε και το πόσο φιλικοί και εξυπηρετικοί ήταν οι υπεύθυνοι αλλά και ο Μάνος, ο make up artist της Inglot που μας είπε λίγα πράγματα για τα προϊόντα καθώς και κάποια tips & tricks για σωστό μακιγιάζ.
Ήπιαμε το καφεδάκι μας, φάγαμε τα σοκολατάκια μας, συζητήσαμε, και μετά βαφτήκαμε κιόλας!

Λίγα λόγια για την εταιρεία..
H Inglot είναι μία μάρκα επαγγελματικού μακιγιάζ με πολύ καλές τιμές για την ποιότητα που προσφέρει και έχει μια τεράστια γκάμα προϊόντων. Έχει έρθει στην Ελλάδα από τον Μάιο αν θυμάμαι καλά του 2012 και έχει μέχρι στιγμής 3 καταστήματα. Αν θέλετε να μάθετε περισσότερα πράγματα και να δείτε τα προϊόντα που ξεχώρισε η Μαριάννα, μια άλλη beauty blogger που ήταν στο event δεν έχετε παρά να δείτε την ανάρτηση της εδώ. Δεν υπάρχει λόγος να γράφω και εγώ τα ίδια πράγματα και πάνω κάτω τα ίδια προϊόντα με εντυπωσίασαν και μένα.

Ας δούμε μερικές φωτογραφίες..

Και όμως, αυτό που βλέπετε είναι σοκολατάκια.. Τα ζαχαροπλαστεία fresh "αποτύπωσαν" τις γνωστές freedom system palettes σε αυτά τα πεντανόστιμα σοκολατάκια!


Παραθέτω μερικές φωτογραφίες από το κατάστημα για να δείτε και εσείς τη μεγάλη γκάμα προϊόντων που διαθέτει..













Μερικές φωτογραφίες με τις bloggers στο χώρο..





Eγώ καθώς βαφόμουν...


Και το τελικό αποτέλεσμα!




Τέλος, μας δόθηκε δωράκι από ένα βερνίκι νυχιών στην κάθε μία, εμένα μου έτυχε αυτό το όμορφο λιλά.


Μόλις το δοκιμάσω θα σας πω και τη γνώμη μου!

Ξέρω, σας βομβάρδισα με πάρα πολλές φωτογραφίες :p
Χάρηκα πάρα πολύ που μου δόθηκε η ευκαιρία να γνωρίσω τα κορίτσια αλλά και το υπέροχο προσωπικό της Inglot καθώς και να έρθω σε επαφή με τα προϊόντα τους.

Μπορείτε να τσεκάρετε τη σελίδα τους στο facebook εδώ.

Φιλάκια πολλά!

Haul post:What I got from the post office today & recent purchases!

Hello everybody!! So, today I went to the post office to pick up some parcels that had arrived from me and I wanted to show them to you. The content of them were two presents I won in Greek giveaways (from beautyfulladdict.blogspot.gr and menia-prettylittlethings.blogspot.gr/, thank you so much girls!!) , sunglasses the site giantvintage.com sent me for review purposes, and the rest were all from ebay. A make up brushes set, an eye shadow palette, a ring and a beret.

Then I'll also show you some recent purchases I made.
Let's see what I got..

Γεια σας! Σήμερα θα σας δείξω τα καλούδια που παρέλαβα από το ταχυδρομείο. Είναι δύο δώρα από ελληνικά giveaways που κέρδισα ( από το beautyfulladdict.blogspot.gr και το menia-prettylittlethings.blogspot.gr/ , σας ευχαριστώ πολύ κορίτσια! ) , γυαλιά ηλίου από το site giantvintage.com  που μου εστάλησαν για να γράψω review πάνω στα προϊόντα τους, και τα υπόλοιπα είναι από ebay. Ένα σετ πινέλων μακιγιάζ, μια παλέττα σκιών ματιών, ένα δαχτυλίδι και ένα σκουφάκι.

Μετα θα σας δείξω κάποιες πρόσφατες αγορές που έκανα.
Για να δούμε τι παρέλαβα...


More specifically...
Πιο συγκεκριμένα...


120 eye shadow palette  from ebay. It still has the plastic wraps if you can notice, I haven't tried it out yet, but I can't wait. I had my eye on this palette for so long, and it's finally mine! I love the packaging and the colours and have read many good reviews on it. I'll write mine too once I've tested them. It only cost me 8 euros including shipping.

Παλέττα 120 σκιών ματιών από ebay. Έχει ακόμα το πλαστικό πάνω από τις σκιές αν το προσέξετε. Δε την έχω δοκιμάσει ακόμα αλλά ανυπομονώ. Την ήθελα εδώ και πολύ καιρό και επιτέλους είναι δική μου! Λατρεύω τη συσκευασία και τα χρώματα και έχω διαβάσει πολύ καλές κριτικές γι'αυτήν. Θα γράψω και εγώ τη δική μου αφότου τη δοκιμάσω. Μου κόστισε μόνο 8 ευρώ μαζί με τα μεταφορικά.


24 brush set from ebay. On the pic it still has the plastic wraps on, but I took them off after the photo was taken. It's my first complete brush set and it looks pretty good for its price. The biggest brushes shed a bit but I think after I wash them they'll be fine. The brushes have really soft bristles and they're of good construction. The only thing that annoyed me is they have the "bobbi brown" logo on them and I hate fake logos, I thought they would have no brand printed on them. They only cost me around 12 euros including shipping, it's ridiculous, right? I'll write my review on them after I wash them and use them a few times.

Σετ 24 πινέλων από ebay. Στη φωτογραφία έχουν ακόμα τα πλαστικά προστατευτικά πάνω αλλά τα αφαίρεσα αργότερα. Είναι το 1ο μου ολοκληρωμένο σετ πινέλων και φαίνεται πολύ καλό για την τιμή του. Τα μεγαλύτερα πινέλα μάδησαν λίγο αλλά πιστεύω πως αφότου τα πλύνω θα είναι οκ. Εχουν πολύ απαλές τρίχες και καλή κατασκευή. Το μόνο που με πείραξε είναι ότι έχουν το logo "bobbi brown" πάνω ενώ νόμιζα ότι δε θα είχαν καμία μάρκα τυπωμένη πάνω, μισώ όταν ένα προϊόν έχει πάνω τυπωμένη μια μούφα μάρκα. Μου κόστισαν μόνο 12 ευρώ μαζί με τα μεταφορικά, γελοίο, έτσι? Θα γράψω τη γνώμη μου ολοκληρωμένα αφότου τα πλύνω και τα δοκιμάσω μερικές φορές.


Τhe kit I won from  beautyfulladdict.blogspot.gr, I can't wait to test it and tell you what I think about it! The whole box smells amazing!

Το σετ που κέρδισα από το διαγωνισμό του  beautyfulladdict.blogspot.gr , ανυπομονώ να το δοκιμάσω και να σας πω τη γνώμη μου! Όλο το κουτί μυρίζει υπέροχα!


Τhe facial scrub I won from  menia-prettylittlethings.blogspot.gr/ , I opened it and couldn't believe how great it smells! It kinda smells like strawberry, I don't know.. I'm looking forward to testing it and wiriting a review on it, too!

Το scrub προσώπου που κέρδισα από το  menia-prettylittlethings.blogspot.gr/ , όταν το άνοιξα δε μπορούσα να πιστέψω πόσο τέλεια μυρίζει! Μυρίζει κάπως σαν φράουλα, δεν ξέρω.. Ανυπομονώ να το δοκιμάσω και αυτό και να σας πω τη γνώμη μου!


5 pairs of sunglasses the site giantvintage.com sent me for review purposes. Aren't they great? Check out their site, they have seriously, like millions of great designs in super cheap prices! Once I find time I'll have a photoshoot of myself wearing them so you can see how they look worn!

5 ζευγάρια γυαλιών ηλίου που μου έστειλε το site giantvintage.com για να γράψω τη γνώμη μου για αυτά. Δεν είναι τέλεια? Ρίξτε μια ματιά στο site τους, έχουν χιλιάδες τέλεια σχέδια σε πάρα πολύ χαμηλές τιμές! Μόλις βρω χρόνο θα φωτογραφηθώ φορώντας τα για να  δείτε και εσείς πως δείχνουν φορεμένα!



A golden ring and a beret, both from ebay. Aren't they cute? The first one only cost me 0,80 euros including shipping and the second 2, 50 euros!

Ένα χρυσαφί δαχτυλιδάκι και ένα σκουφάκι, και τα δύο από ebay. Το πρώτο μου στοίχισε μόνο 0,80 ευρώ μαζί με μεταφορικά και το δεύτερο 2,50 ευρώ!

Next I'm going to show you some cosmetics I recently got and my new pair of shoes and bag!

Τώρα θα σας δείξω κάποια καλλυντικά που πήρα πρόσφατα και τα νέα μου παππούτσια και τσάντα!


  • H&M liquid eyeliners : 4 euros each
  • H&M liquid eye shadow: 3 euros (you can read my review here )
  • Essence Gel eyeliner & cream eye shadow were won in thoughtsofamakeupaholic.blogspot.gr/ 's giveaway as well as an eye pencil I don't have here right now to show it to you
  • Essence pigments: 3 euros each
  • Lovie lipsticks: 2 euros each
  • Bella oggi mascara 3,50 euros
  • Blistex lip cream was a gift from a friend of mine
I'm going to post reviews and swatches for all of them once I've used them more, for now I just told you the prices.

Θα γράψω τη γνώμη μου καθώς και θα ανεβάσω φωτογραφίες με το πως "γράφουν" αφότου τα χρησιμοποιήσω περισσότερο, για την ώρα σας έγραψα τις τιμές τους.

And finally a pair of shoes and a bag I recently bought and love!
Και τέλος ένα ζευγάρι παππούτσια και μια τσάντα που αγόρασα πρόσφατα και αγαπώ!


Τhey both are from Blanco. The shoes cost me 46 euros and the bag 26 euros. The shoes are incredibly comfortable!

Και τα δύο είναι από τα Blanco. Τα παππούτσια στοίχισαν 46 ευρώ και η τσάντα 26 ευρώ. Τα παππούτσια είναι απίστευτα άνετα!

That's all for now! Do you like them? Have you shopped anything recently? I'll be glad to see your comments!
Kisses!

Αυτά για την ώρα!Σας αρέσουν? Εσείς ψωνίσατε τίποτα πρόσφατα? Θα χαρώ να δω σχόλια σας!
Φιλιά!
