A Birthday Post :)

Hello my dear readers!

I am very glad that I slowly start getting new visitors (so my daily visit number of people is slowly rising, yaaaay) and at least 25% of of visitors are "returning visitors" (what's actually a good sign in statistics). I am really glad that there is a "small" group of people that do like my blog and this motivates me to continue writing :) Thanks! <3
And today is my birthday! Yaaaaaaay! :)

Today I'd like to tell you about mascara I wanted to buy for months; the biggest problem is that this brand is (regardless) still not hitting any cosmetics shop in Austria. I am not sure if anybody knows this brand in here :)

This time I'm talking about
Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara
Well, I have to admit - the name is kinda kinky. :) I've noticed that many cosmetics brands like Nars, Too Faced, Benefit, Soap&Glory and some other are naming their products quite seductive, haha, maybe they want to break the "sex" taboo like that... on the other hand, sex sells and every product with a kinky name will bring every person's attention.

I was reading other people's reviews for ages before I got myself this mascara. There were extremely positive and extremely negative comments and I was really curious about it.

Too Faced Mascara test. And yeah, I never work my eyeliner through the whole eyelid :)

After trying this mascara on, I was glad my lashes were super-lifted, voluminous and and defined. After one coat, they were looking pretty awesome so I didn't want to pimp them any more (see photo above). As I tried to do that the day after, I got clumps and my lashes were looking like spider legs, so I had to wash it off and start again.

My opinion about it:
This is a good mascara. It has all that matters (definition, curl, volume) and I'd say it's more an evening mascara, since it makes that little dramatic look. On the other hand, this is not a waterproof mascara and it can easily smudge (if you're touching your eye area for sure). The wand is good and the texture of liquid is very thick (so it makes that voluminous look). On the other hand, you should be careful with it - it smudges while putting it on and leaves trails everywhere (you just have to have a tiny cosmetic pad becuase you're gonna get some of the product on your eyelid - or am I just so clumsy?). :)
Long story short, it's recommendable for mascara-experts. For beginners I'd say rather Too Faced "LashGasm" or any other mascara that has a bit simplier wand and texture. :)

Where can you buy it:
In Austria, there is no such thing as Too Faced. You have to try online shops.
In Serbia (and many other countries) you can buy it at Sephora.
It costs around 22€.

Thank you for your attention. If you have a question or anything, just write in comments below... and don't forget to like/follow. THANKS :)

Tinea goes alternative on FashionTV

Hi guys,

last week I was supporting my friends from Archetype Apparel on a fashion show in FashionTV Love F Café in Vienna. This was, I'd say, the first time in my life to do a catwalk with FashionTV and an awesome alternative fashion brand (lots of fashion words in here, lol). It was really strange not to be super-couture on those kind of events, but I must say - I LOVED IT! A Birkin bag, Jimmy Choo shoes and a Versace dress are not necessarily all that matters.

I am the one in the middle :)

I supported Archetype Apparel from the very beginning - I was a part of their first photoshooting (as you can tell by the photos I posted above), had lots of fashion shows with them and I do wear their t-shirts and accessories. If you want, ou can check out their Website and a Facebook page for some clothing. They are really not pricey at all!

Take a look at some photos from the last week's FTV fashion show:

the girls are sooo pretty <3

I was the only one wearing sneakers! and my face is priceless :)
I do have to mention one little thing: if you do ask me for my hair... that was the time I've tested Sensai Moisturising Shampoo for the first time - you can clearly see how my hair looked like on that day. :)

So guys, I hope you liked this short post full of photos, and I hope you're going to come back to my blog again! Thanks <3

Tested and loved it: Sensai Moisturising Shampoo

Hello everyone!
Yesterday was a holiday in Austria (Maria Empfängnis) and we all "office people" had a day off. I've really enjoyed this "prolonged" weekend and had wonderful time with my friends, got myself some new hair products (which I'll hopefully review soon - or do you want me to do the haul?) and got a little sample of Sensai Moisturising Shampoo.
Sensai is a Japanese high-end brand - their products can cost a lot of money (up to 200€), but the products I've tried yet are miraculous.

Last Saturday I tested this shampoo and was pretty sceptical; I have really long, straight, heavy hair and normally I use a volumizing shampoo since all the other ones are making my hair pretty slicked and too straight, but I gave it a try.

*  *  *

First, I liked the smell and consistency - it smells different than any other shampoo and it looked kinda shimmery-goldish; my first thought of it was "Oh, you creative Japanese people, I love you so much!" :)
It was a little bit hard for my hair to completely "cover" it in foam - it doesn't foam too much (which means that it doesn't consist lots of "sodium laureth sulfate") so I had to use a bit more shampoo than usual and repeat the process till I was completely sure every part of my head is clean. After rinsing off the shampoo, I've realized I need no conditioner at all (except a tiny little bit on my ends that are kinda dry) so I've used my regular one and rinsed it off.
Oh wow! My hair was smelling sooooooo good! I couldn't believe it. And it seemed very soft, too.
I was still very curious about my hair after blowdrying and styling it.

*  *  *

After regular hair styling (with a big ceramic brush and a professional hairdryer) my hair seemed unbelievably soft, shiny, silky and also not too heavy, plus, my hair still smelled fabulous (normally, after using a heat-protector and drying your hair, the smell disappears). I was really satisfied with it. On the other hand, since this shampoo is not a volumizing shampoo, it didn't give me that up-lift on my hair roots.

My personal opinion about the product:
Sensai Moisturising Shampoo is a wonderful hair care product that makes your hair look very healthy and beautiful, leaves wonderful scent on it and makes your hair style last for days! It makes your hair look thinner and gives it a proper shine.
Special recommendation: it's a perfect shampoo for normal, damaged, dry to very dry, curly and thick hair. If you have thin and greasy hair - I'd love to recommend you some other products to achieve better look :)

Where can you buy it:
In Austria - Douglas, Müller
In Serbia - Jasmin (they have Sensai make-up and skincare products, not sure about hair products - let me know if you find out!)
Costs: around 25€ for 250ml

1,2,3 beauty!

Hello everyone!

Today I really want to recommend you something everyone needs from time to time - if you are clumsy, emotional and tired for days, there's something that can save your life.
I am doing this review/recommendation because I was using this product recently - I've got some dark circles under my eyes because I didn't sleep so well, I was emotional the last couple of days (happy emotional tho, cried cos I've finally got a new flat, hehe) and yeah... the last thing... I suceeded to cut myself under my eye with a paper sheet.

In those situations, I needed a cover-up. I cannot go to work looking like I was sick. I was having some meetings and I was seeing my boss every day, so, this is one of the rerasons for using it.

It's not pricey, it does wonders, makes you look flawless when you're actually not (nobody's perfect):
Bourjois 1,2,3 Perfect Foundation
This foundation has a good coverage (but not like MAC's Studio Fix Fluid or Dior Forever for example) and it conceales all the imperfections. If you find your ideal shade, you can just put it on places you need to conceal, but you can also put it all over your face (which I'd personally never recommend).
The trick about this foundation is in its pigments:
3 colour correcting pigments
1. Yellow pigments – conceals dark circles for a rested look
2. Mauve pigments – corrects dullness for radiance
3. Green pigments – neutralises redness for an even out the complexion

This foundation is for all skin types; don't forget to prepare your skin for this properly - use a moisturizer and a primer!

The way I was using it was just locally - under my eyes, a little bit on my T-zone and on the "cut-spot". I didn't use a concealer for that because concealer looks too obvious on my skin - this foundation looks natural and makes that "airbrush" effect. It's always good for bad-face days :)
I prefer to put my foundation with my fingers - if you prefer a brush or a sponge, it's your own decision. I prefer fingers.

Where can you buy it:
Bourjois is not available in Austria anymore, so you can count on online shops or Amazon.
In Serbia, you can find it in Jasmin.
This foundation costs around 13€ and it's a "drugstore" product.
