bareMinerals Get Started Complexion Kit


Couple of months ago I purchased BareMinerals Get Started Complexion Kit, but I didn’t want to write about it, until I’m 100% sure, what I’m talking about. 

After approximately two months of trying BareMinerals products, I can safely say, that I love them. First of all, these products don’t clog my pores at all, which is a huge advantage for me, since I have oily and acne-prone skin. Moreover, my skin condition improved and looks healthier and more radiant, than before using the products in the kit. This get started complexion kit includes:

Prime Time Foundation Primer (15 ml/0.5 fl. oz.)

ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 (2 g/0.07 oz.)

MATTE Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 (1.5 g/0.05 oz.)

Warmth All-Over Face Color (0.57 g/0.02 oz.)

Mineral Veil finishing powder (0.75 g/0.03 oz.)

Flawless Application Face Brush

Keepsake Makeup Clutch

Prime Time Foundation Primer – goes very smoothly on the skin and doesn’t leave any greasy feeling. Also, small amount goes a long way. I noticed, that when I use this primer, any foundation (I use it with other foundations as well) stays longer on my skin without disappearing. 

ORIGINAL Foundation – very light weight and natural looking. Perfect for a “good skin day”, when you don’t need much coverage. 

MATTE Foundation – pretty much the same as the Original one, but leaves a matte finish. Personally I prefer the Matte one.

Warmth All-Over Face Color – the most beautiful bronzer I have ever owned. Doesn’t look orange on skin and leaves my face with a beautiful radiant glow.
Mineral Veil® finishing powder – I use this as a setting foundation. Since I have mentioned before, I have oily skin, but Mineral Veil, really helps with this problem a lot. 

Flawless Application Face Brush – all-round brush, absolutely perfect for foundation, warmth or mineral veil. Doesn’t shed at all.

All in all, this Get Started Complexion Kit has become my everyday necessity. I’m very curious to try other BareMinerals products, because this kit was a pleasant surprise!


Prieš keletą mėnesių gimtadienio proga pasidovanojau sau bareMinerals get Started Complexion Kit (juk patys sau išsirenkame geriausias dovanas) , tačiau nenorėjau rašyti jokio atsiliepimo apie šį produktą, kol nebuvau visiškai garantuota su kuo turime reikalų.
Po maždaug dviejų mėnesių testavimo, galiu drąsiai teigti, jog tiesiog myliu šį rinkinį. Jokios hiperbolės, tiesiog tikra meilė. Visų pirma, ši mineralinė pudra nekemša mano porų, o tai – didžiulis privalumas, nes mano oda yra linkusi greit blizgėti, o dienos eigoje esu priversta susipažinti su to pasekmėmis – spuogais.  
Pastebėjau, kad  nuo šių produktų naudojimo pradžios bendra mano odos būklė pagerėjo, tačiau turėčiau paminėti, jog pradėjau gerti daugiau vandens nei įprastai bei iš maisto raciono išmečiau labai mylimą picą, tad visų laurų bareMinerals priskirti negaliu. 

Rinkinį sudaro:

Prime Time Foundation Primer

Original Mineralinė pudra SPF15

Matte Mineralinė pudra SPF15


Mineral veil

Veido šepetėlis

Kosmetikos krepšelis

Prime Time Foundation Primer – labai lengvai tepasi ant odos bei nepalieka riebaus pojūčio. Paruošia veido odą pudrai. Užtenka žirnio dydžio produkto visam veidui, tad užtenka gana ilgam. Pastebėjau, jog, kai naudoju šį produktą, bet kokia pudra laikosi ilgiau, bet veidas išlieka matinis.

Originali pudra – labai lengvai maskuoja, sulygina veido odos atspalvį, maskuoja nežymias dėmeles, tad tinkama „geros odos dienoms“, kai norisi lengvo efekto. Kai noriu dramatiškesnio įvaizdžio, renkuosi kreminę pudrą, nes šios man nepakanka.

Matte pudra – maskavimas toks pat lengvas, tačiau suteikia matinį efektą, todėl šią pudrą renkuosi dažniau nei Original.

Bronzantas – pats geriausias bronzantas kokį esu turėjusi. Neturi oranžinio atspalvio, todėl atrodo labai natūraliai bei suteikia gyvumo ir lengvo, sveiko švytėjimo veidui.

Mineral veil – kaip jau minėjau, mano oda yra linkusi į nemalonų blizgėjimą. Šis produktas su tuo susitvarko kuo puikiausiai. Tačiau rinkinyje šios pudros kiekis labai mažas – tad man jau teiks pirkti papildymą.

Veido šepetėlis – naudoju visiems produktams, išskyrus Foundation Primer. Visiškai nesišeria!

Taigi, rekomenduoju išbandyti, jeigu ieškai ko nors, kas pabrėžtų Tavo natūralų grožį. Deja, nemanau, kad tiks toms, ką šiuo metu kankina stipri aknė, nes šios mineralinės pudros maskavimo galimybės gana nedidelės.

DIP#2| Vilnius

Last week I was in Vilnius, so I decided to snap some pictures and share them with you. I highly recommend visiting this beautiful city for everyone, who has never been there. There’s plenty of good food restaurants for foodies to choose from. Moreover, history lovers will also have a great time, since it’s full of authentic things to explore!

Have you ever been there?



Let's Buy All The Things! | HAUL#1

It was an ordinary day. I ran out of toothpaste, went to buy some. Ended up broke and with a bag of unnecessary beauty products. Happens to the best of us, am I right???

I mean, who would have resisted a fifty percent discount? Not me. I have not had time to try these products for a full review, yet.  But I have a feeling  I’m not gonna be disappointed.

What did I get?

GOSH Defining Brow Gel. Since I’ve grew out my natural eyebrow shape, and I noticed that it doesn’t need much product in it. So defining gel seems just perfect to touch up.

GOSH Golden Moss Eye Pencil. Golden tones bring out green eyes, so I decided to give it a shot. Also it’s waterproofed, so that’s handy for rainy days or watching “Titanic”.

GOSH 001 Nougat Crisp Lip Pencil. For dem Kylie Jenner Lips. Perfect nude shade!

Nivea Refreshing Cleansing Milk. I’ve been using “Simple” cleansing wipes for couple of months now, so it’s time to switch things up a little bit!



Dress over Pants - What Exactly is a Salwar Kameez | Guest Post

There’s a new trend on the fashion block that’s gaining popularity among designers, fashion bloggers and celebrities worldwide. The salwar kameez, or dress-over-pants, is an outfit adapted from the Pakistani culture, and thanks to its unique look, simple yet effective cuts and stylistic versatility, it helped many western fashion designers find inspiration for their unconventional modish pieces. A hot trend for the spring/summer season, the salwar kameez is slowly but steadily getting through to top fashion industry tiers – and here, we have a brief overview of the history, vogue combinations and celeb sightings starring dress-over-pants.

Salwar origins: Traditional costumes in South Asia

The salwar khameez has its roots in the Mughal Empire, where it was worn as customary attire for both formal events and everyday occasions. The traditional salwar kameez costume occupies a prominent place in South Asian culture (especially in Afghanistan, Pakistan and India), and it consists of a long tunic (kameez, or body shirt) combined with salwar (pantaloons). The two-piece outfit is usually made from comfy fabrics, such as cotton, chiffon, silk, linen, georgette but it can also be designed as a fusion of different materials. Either a matching set or a combination of pieces in monochromatic design and bold patterns, the salwar kameez is worn by both men and women on the sub-content, though the outfit design and style somewhat differ by gender and region.

Salwar kameez in contemporary fashion

Kameez usually comes as either a tunic sewn flat and straight in the shape of the letter A or a long, flowy body shirt that resembles a dress. Drawing on these two main styles, the modern kameez look has been slightly adjusted to match other popular fashion fads across the globe. For instance, a kameez with set-in sleeves is currently very trendy in Europe and the U.S., while tunics with elaborate neckline decorations are more prominent in Asia and Eastern Europe. For more liberal fashionistas, kameez can also feature a deep neckline, sleeveless design or cap sleeves, which is why it’s well-suited to spring and summer wear. You can buy amazing Salwar Kameez suits from Fashions by India.

The dress-over-pants outfit has recently been seen as a combination of preference in the celebrity world: well-known trend-setters such as Kendall Janner, Emma Watson and Sarah Jessica Parker have been caught on camera wearing this quirky Eastern attire – and much to their favor figure-wise, too.

1. Kendall Jenner

Although she’s better known for statement outfits that bring out a lady’s most flattering attributes such as a well-toned body, swan-like neckline and firm legs, Kendal Jenner was recently spotted wearing the salwar kameez in public. In the all-white outfit that revealed her arms only, Jenner looked effortlessly chic, sexy yet discreet and highly fashion-savvy. A nice go at unisex fashion there, Miss J.

2. Emma Watson

Another sighting of the salwar kameez among celebrities is Emma Watson’s hybrid outfit seen at the Golden Globe Awards earlier this year. Miss Watson’s daring ensemble featured a pair of blue heels, black pants and a stunning floor-long high-neckline dress in vibrant red designed by the master of chic cuts, Christian Dior. A brave clothing combination for the red carpet, verily.

3. Sarah Jessica Parker

Mrs. Parker is one more celebrity whose refined clothing combinations have become a byword for superior fashion and taste. During a recent filming in Rome, Sarah was seen wearing dress-over-pants attire consisting of grey straight-leg trousers and a grey, three-quarter sleeve dress with cute multicolor floral design.
Whatever your personal opinion of hybrid clothing may be, the salwar kameez is here and it seems it’s going to hang around for a while. With the dress-over-pant trend, you no longer have to choose between that elegant black dress and your favorite pipe-leg pants – you can wear them both and still look fit for a queen of the catwalk!
