Update on product reviews


 
Revlon Colorburst lipgloss (in Sunset Peach and Peony)

Packaging; the packaging is little long like for lipstick but still manageable to easily slid into a purse or a wristlet. Lipgloss cap stays nicely in place, not allowing for any spills or left over product on the edges after application. Love the brush being flat and not typical round shape like most lipglosses. The brush allows for easy application of the product.

Product: Absolutely love the consistency of the Colorburst lipgloss. It does not smudge or run over. The Revlon lipgloss has a thicker consistency that stays on even for few hours and does not smudge over. The product has little shimmer to it after application and tints lips just enough without looking fake or over done. The lipgloss does not have any smell or taste to it, which in my opinion is good as some of  other products cause allergic reactions on my skin, even the lips. Overall I am very satisfied with Revlon Colorburst lipgloss.

 

NYX The Curve eyeliner

Packaging: The packaging is actually the main reason why I tried The Curve by NYX. It is definitely not a typical shape for an eyeliner but very eye catchy. Surprisingly the shape of The Curve makes it super easy to apply and create lines at any angle.

Product: Love, love, love! The tip of The Curve is nice and thin which allows to create thin and thick lines as desired. Because I have rather low lids most eyeliners leave smudges over my crease and under brow line but this one does not smudge, even after full work day. I have been using it almost daily for few months and yet have to experience any problems with it. Absolute favorite so far.

 

NYX HD Studio Primer

Packaging: Nice small bottle, easy to fit in the carry on or every day purse. Product pumps out which keeps it all in place instead of being messy and getting everywhere.

Product: Another amazing product from NYX. First when you apply the primer you see small white tint on your face but it blends in nicely with the foundation. The primer does hold any make up amazingly from foundation to eye shadows. Unlike other primers I have tried in my past it keeps my skin nice and matte and prevents it from getting oily. Plus not to mention it does not break your bank. Love it!

 

Maybelling Dream Fresh BB Cream

Packaging: Nice small bottle, easy to fit in purse or make up bag. One problem I had with it that when opened some of the product comes out creating a mess on the packaging and a lot of it comes out when trying to get just a small amount of the product.

Product: It was a first BB cream I actually tried and liked it a lot. It added nice tint to my face and thanks to the BB cream I was able to use much less foundation than I usually used to with even better effects than foundation itself. The cream helped to cover some of my skin’s dark spots but not 100%. Overall I was very satisfied with it and will keep it in my daily make up routine.

N.Y.C.'s INDIVIDUALEYES CUSTOM COMPACT



This is the first experience I had with N.Y.C.’s cosmetics. I never really had a chance to try their product until this pallet created for green eyes. I purchased “Smokey greens” and tested it out for myself.

Packaging:  The packaging includes: applicator, primer, illuminator and a set of four shadows. The colors are coordinated to “intensify and enhance” the eye color. The box is thick but not heavy and can easily fit inside any purse or cosmetic bag.


Product: The primer and illuminator feel little oily, which at first made me think it would make the eye shadow clump or made it too shinny but I was wrong. The shadows feel very smooth and the only downside is that I needed more generous amount to be applied to the eyelid for desired effect.

Results: The shadow actually lasted all day and did not smudge. I did not expect such a cheap product to last as long and so well throughout the day. The purples for “smokey greens” did bring out the color of my eyes and made the green color look more intense.

Review of new purchases coming this week :)

Casual day


Something that will always find a place in my closet are casual t-shirts and tanks. They’re easy to dress either down or up. Today I felt very casual so I went with this tank I got from PacSun and paired it with looser jeans and flip flops. I added a headband and a chunky Fossil gold tone watch for accessories.

Yellow apple


It’s summer season again and it is also summer dress season. There are many dress styles to choose from ranging from strapless to minis. One of the newest additions to my clothing collection is this pretty little yellow number from Target. The dress was around $20, which is definitely a perfect price for any girl on a budget. Lately I’ve also been very into strapless dresses and this one sits on very well, even for girls with no so full top like myself. I love the bright yellow color of the top of the dress and the little apple detail on the skirt part also adds a nice casual feel to it. I also got an orange version of the dress with poppy print but that to come in the next few days.


Dress: Target, watch: Fossil, shoes: Guess

Little structured black dress




Every girl needs a little black dress. It goes well for every occasion and it’s easy to dress up for night out or down for more casual look. For my little black dress I chose this structured piece. When I saw it at Charlotte Russe it instantly caught my eye. I love the loose top of the dress and curve fitting bottom of it. I paired it with Guess sandals for a more casual look and yellow Target necklace for a little pop of color. Neons are coming back strong this season and this little sparkle definitely adds some color to the very neutral outfit. What’s your little black dress like?

Candy Summer Beauty

Since in my mind I always associated summer with an array of colors ranging from pastels to neons I decided to make a delicious sugar coated post, especially that it’s been gloomy and raining a lot in Florida lately. Time to brighten up the mood!


This shimmering and silky powder eyes shadow instantly caught my eye. The mellow yellow color makes me think of warm rays of sunshine on my skin. My advice while wearing such a bold color would be to keep the rest of the make-up simple, avoid bronzer or blush but definitely apply dark dark mascara. The Make up Forever eye shadow is available exclusively at Sephora retailing at $20.00.


Tarte blush reminds me of delicious rock candy in the same rosy pink color. This specific bright pink color is named Amused and according to Sephora’s description it lasts up to 12-hours! Pretty good deal if you ask me. It was also created for all skin types, which is a big plus for me since I have mixed skin. Available at many stores, such as: Sephora and Ulta.

Leah is very vibrant and shimmery color created by Julep, which is a perfect accessory for the summer. With this green you can add some sparkle and life to even the plainest outfit.

This new Tarte lip gloss reminds me of twizlers and let’s face it every girl needs a good lip gloss with her. I love the bright red color of it and I think it’s definitely a perfect shade for the summer.

Today has been little bit hectic so I decided I would post some gorgeous looks from this week:

Lea Michele and Bethenny Frankel looking stunning and summery in their light but girly outfits while filming segment for Bethenny’s show.


Kate Mara pulled a winning look with mixing the polka-dot Madewell blazer with white shorts and Cognac Coach cluch at the N.Y.C. Coach’s event


Stacy Keibler rocking an amazing look in this maxi red skirt, simple black tank paired with denim jacket and stylish fedora, plus George Clooney as arm candy would make every girl smile. What else can I add this is definitely a look I will have to try this summer.

Who inspires my style...

There have been many fashion influences I gave in over the course of few years but let me share some inspiring ladies who will probably be dictating a lot in my style, since they already have a huge part in it:

Audrey Hepburn

 Brigitte Bardot

Jackie Kennedy Onassis

Lauren Conrad

Welcome to my doll life!

     I figured that the most proper way of starting the first post would be with explaining how the name and the blog itself came about. Starting with the idea for the blog… I always loved fashion and all things related. My mom introduced me to Vogue, Elle and everything that came with this beautiful passion. She also used to be an Avon representative so I would get my little hands on all the cool make-up and goodies they had for kids as well as my mom’s grown up make-up. My mom was always my style inspiration, because she always manages to look so classy yet so daring. As a little girl I always wished I would grow up to look like my mom and funny enough when I look at her picture when she was my age we look like twins! So I guess I got my wish. Since those young years I always loved fashion and everything that came with it but when it came to college I chose to pursue psychology as my major. This blog is sort of an outlet for me to write about anything I want or just go silly with the fashion choices, plus such a good excuse to get dressed up ;)
     Moving on to the name Dag’s Doll Life. Well my lovely mom always calls me “lalka” which means doll in Polish. It has been the nickname she used for me since I can remember. My cousin and close friend collaborated on the idea of Dag’s Doll Life when I told them I wanted to start a blog, since I liked the name I just went with it.

     I will try to keep the blog updated as much as possible, so I hope for everyone’s patience as I go through this journey with it. Hope everyone enjoys!
