April 2018 Favorites

April has been a month of testing new products. Hence why some are featured in this monthly favorites. I also dug out some old favorites that I'm currently using, so it's the best of both worlds.

Review: The Ordinary Coverage Foundation 1.1N

I was so excited when The Ordinary came out with their foundations, especially because they had such a huge shade range. Let's face it, when none of the drugstore foundation shades fit you like a glove, you're ready to try out anything. My expectations were high, but unfortunately foundation didn't live up to it.

Review: Paese Products Part 2

I know Paese a little, since I have already reviewed a few of their products, so I was excited to try out some more. Some have previously really impressed me and even made their way into my yearly favorites like their Paese Rice Powder which is probably one of my favorite powders I have tried so far. Now let's see which other products have impressed me this time. 

Zmagovalec Beyu nagradne igre

Hvala vsem za sodelovanje v zelo vijoli─Źni Beyu nagradni igri, ki je potekala tukaj.

Review: Kiko 3D Hydra Lipgloss - 18 Golden Sparkle

While I love a good matte lip, I am also always searching for a good shimmery shiny lip and I thought I found a great choice in this Kiko 3D Hydra Lipgloss in the shade 18 Golden Sparkle. I already have this formula in another shade, so this is more just a presentation of a new color.

Review: Essence Hololighter Brush

Essence Hololighter Brush is one of my favorite brushes in my current makeup collection, so it was about time I did a review of it. It's in Essence standard makeup range, but if you know Essence, they can quickly decide to discontinue products, so get it while you can.

Review: Beyu Purple Makeup Picks

You probably know that Ultra Violet is the color of the year 2018 according to Pantone. I am a huge fan of purple in makeup. Purple eyeshadows and eyeliners are one of those colors that go really well with my dark brown eyes. It adds a pop of color in a good way. I also like purple lipsticks, but more for the fall. Beyu has decided to sent me an array of their picks for purple makeup. I have tested it all out and here are my thoughts.

Review: Avon Mark Liquid Lip Lacquer Matte (Kissy Face, Mystique, Rock Star)

These are three new shades of Avon Mark Liquid Lip Lacquer Matte and they supposedly have a satin finish, but in my opinion it's the same matte finish with shimmer in it. Three new shades add to the color range with a bit more edgy, nude and bright look.

Trend Alert 2018: Blue Eyeshadow

I was thinking of creating a new series of blog posts on my blog called trend alert. I love catching up with trends. It's not because I want to be on trend all the time, if that certain makeup suits me or not, but just to get an idea of what else can I try out. Trends are created more for the brands so they can release new products and charge you for it, which is fine. It's how the world works, but sometimes you may follow a trend with the products that you already own. 

I've seen blue eyeshadow gaining popularity last year already, but this year it is everywhere. Ever since the KKW x Mario collection came out with the blue eyeshadow in their palette, everyone is wearing blue. I love a good blue eyeshadow, so I decided to give you my own two cents on this trend. I created a simple blue look that I usually do, if I want to wear blue.

Review: Secret Key Marine Racoony Hydrogel Eye & Multi Patch

Jolse is Korean online store that I buy most of my Korean products from. They also have certain products that they give up for review purposes. You have to apply and wait to get selected for a review and I was lucky enough to got these cute eye patches. I admit, it surprised me in a mailbox and I found them adorable from the second I opened up the packaging. 

Review: Bourjois Rouge Velvet The Lipstick - 14 Brownette and 16 Caramelody

I have expanded my Bourjous Rouge Velvet The Lipstick collection again, thanks to Mateja, who kindly gifted them to me. She is not thrilled about wearing brown lipstick, so she though I would get more use out of it. I have to say, I love both shades and will definitely wear them a lot. I have already reviewed three shades before, which you can find at the end of this post.

New In (16)

I've been stocking up my stash by repurchasing a lot of the products that I really love using. I also got some PR packages that I am already testing out and have a mini review of already. Most of these I've already reviewed and you can click on the title to read review.
