Hi and welcome to my very FIRST BLOG SALE!

Everything I am selling has only been used 3-5 times, some of the items are brand new and still come in packaging.

Я решила устроить эту распродажу для того, чтобы освободить место в комоде и дать вам шанс попробовать продукцию по недорогой цене! Все эти продукты мне очень нравятся, но я не могу их все использовать.

Если вас заинтересовал какой-то продукт, оставьте пожалуйста комментарий под постом и укажите ваше имя, какой продукт вы хотели бы приобрести, и имэйл, к которому привязан ваш PayPal. Если вы живете в Миннесоте, то продукты я могу передать вам при личной встрече, чтобы избежать возни с почтой! Пересылка будет бесплатной, если вы купите продукты на сумму более $50!

Всем отличных выходных и удачного шоппинга!

Kiss Ever PRO Lash Starter Kit Product Review

I am going to be honest with you – I am not a huge fan of false lashes. So when I received my complimentary Influenster VoxBox 2012 Kiss Ever Pro Lashes were the last thing I’ve tried. Don’t get me wrong, I have used falsies in the past, but they were individual ones, that you simply add to the corners of your eye bunch by bunch. These lashes were a full strip!

I made sure to read the instructions and watch a video (the package says that there is a video on the Kiss website , but I couldn’t find it, so I ended up finding this one on YouTube) because I really wanted these to work!

I did have high hopes for this product, the reviews on Influenster were 97% positive! Everyone wanted to give it an A. Plus the product description intrigued me: Made from highest quality human hair. Use with Kiss adhesive for optimal results. Latex free, odor free, waterproof, flexible formula for 24hr hold, easy applicator. The only thing that concerned me was the price – $4.99 seemed too cheap to my “I used to work in cosmetics at Macy’s”. But let’s see how it worked out for me:

Before:

Getting Ready:

 And after:

I think it looks super tacky, the color is too dark, even after I put a coat of mascara over my natural lashes.  The base to which the falsies are attached seems too thick, it makes you look like you are wearing a thick eye liner. The glue smells like Elmer’s (I am a teacher, I know 🙂 ) And I honestly thought twice before applying it, because the smell really stopped me at first! The applicator (which was supposed to make it easier) made it really hard for me to apply the lashes. I looked at myself for about 2 minutes in the mirror, then took it all off! Applied another coat of Lancome mascara, and that was it 🙂 I will probably never use these lashes again!

Let me know what you think of that product! Cheers!

Zhenya’s Monday Ramblings

The not so well known “stars” of Russian Dolls, as well as some other women of Brighton Beach got featured in New York Magazine, in an article “Style Tribes: Russian Women of Brighton Beach”. And while some of these women look absolutely gorgeous in their furs and jewels, this photo totally creeps me out. I want to go grab my torch and set out on a witch hunt! Who’s coming with me?

Баба Яга добралась до сокровищ Кощея Бессмертного (Baba Yaga finally got ahold of Koshei’s treasure)

Last Friday I got sent this amazing L’ancome eyeshadow palette in 302 Violet Sweetheart – as some of you may remember I sometimes do consumer testing projects and surveys for L’oreal, and that’s how I get “paid” for it!

I have also been obsessed with finding workouts on Pinterest and pinning them to my Workouts board! How awesome is that? Oh wait, I’ve also been obsessed with doing them! And BodyRockTV! You all should try it!

Happy Monday everyone!

Doodles,

Makeup No More

Happy hump day! How is your week going? Mine is pretty, well if we put it in my husband’s best friend’s words – shnazzy (is that how you spell shnazzy? I hope so!)

First of all, let me share something with you:

– Working in retail turns you into a mean, spiteful person, who constantly wants to make fun of other people, especially customers. So let’s all try and be a perfect customer to each other shall we?

– Working in retail turns you into a helpful and compassionate person, who is supportive and loving of his coworkers, so lets be that coworker to each other!

– Sometimes helping each other pays off, today it paid off in:

 

Another thing that’s been on my mind today and honestly for a while is

“I SHOULD STOP BUYING MAKEUP”

Here is why:

And this is how it’s all organized in and on my dresser:

Now being the geek that I have been this past week, I came up with some numbers. So my collection includes:

5 Blushes

3 Powders

2 Bronzers

2 Highlighters

1 BB Cream

1 Tinted Moisturizer

1 VitaZing

1 Foundation

11 Liners:

– 7 gel

– 1 liquid

– 4 pencils

10 Mascaras:

– 1 Primer

– 1 Clear

– 1 Blue

– 7 Black

Lipsticks:

– 1 Lipliner

– 6 glosses, plus whatever is at work (about 3, I think)

– 2 chubby sticks

– 4 lipsticks

2 Serums and 1 Primer (I know these are mainly skincare, but they have snuck in the pictures somehow)

5 Concealers:

– 1 Brightening

– 1 Dark Circle corrector

– 1 Acne corrector

– 2 regular ones

1 Eyeshadow base ( 🙂 )

34 Nailpolishes

4 Shimmer Powders

6 Eyeshadow singles

23 Eyeshadow Palettes, 10 of which include blushes, bronzer and/or highlighters, then 5 of these include lipsticks and glosses

Now you know why I am going to stop buying make up. I don’t know how long it’s going to take me to use those things up, some items will run out/expire faster than others, but the goal is to use up as much items as possible 🙂 And I will definitely keep you updated!

Also, please no judgement on my collection, it is what it is 🙂

xo,

Zhenya

Black, Black Haul

Remember this song?

Yeah, this was my inspiration for today’s post 😉 This definitely doesn’t mean that my heart is black 🙂 At least not since the last time I’ve checked.

So since I got a part-time job with a cosmetics company, and will need to be wearing a lot of black, I had to go on an all-black shopping spree. I did have black clothes in my wardrobe, I just didn’t have enough. So where does a girl go? Marshall’s, of course. So here is what I got, most of it was on clearance, and it all equals to one day’s salary, so I figured, I can spend it 🙂

 Plus the shoes, they deserve their own photo, right?

So I am ready to go work on Saturday and sell some Lancome, stop by if you live in Minnesota 🙂

xo,

Zhenya
