Review: L.O.V. BLUSHment Burring Blush - 10 Be The Game Changer

I was so surprised to see another shade of this amazing blush in my mail. Natalija, who takes care of Catrice PR, saw how much I liked this blush and found one more shade that she could give to me. Thank you again. This is definitely one of the best drugstore blush formula and I want to have all the shades someday. It's L.O.V. BLUSHment Blurring Blush collection. 

New In (25)

I do these new ins so rarely that I end up creating too long posts. So grab a drink or something, before you start reading. You can always just skip to what interests you. I have been trying out a lot of new products and some have quickly become my new favorites. There's a bit of everything in these new ins.

Review: Revlon Photoready Candid Foundation - 120 Buff

Revlon's new Photoready Candid foundation first got on my radar on IG. Someone used it in their video and I liked how it looked. Then I saw it on Lookfantastic and since I trust Revlon formulas, I decided to give it a go. I've been so stuck with my foundations lately that I really wanted to try something new. 

Review: Bourjois ROUGE fabuleux Lipstick - 11 Cindered-lla

I was so glad to see Bourjois come out with new lipstick formula named ROUGE fabuleux. I haven't had many of their lipsticks in the past, but those that I had and still have, have all impressed me very much. This is what I would call more comfortable version of their Rouge Velvet The Lipsticks

June 2019 Favorites

June has truly been a proper summer month. The weather here in Slovenia has been really hot and sunny. It has also been a month of minimal makeup, because heat can't handle a full face of makeup on me. I get really oily. That is why I mostly feature easy to use products in this months favorites as well as some newbies that have really impressed me. 

Poljub sonca

A si tudi ti svetlopolta in nikoli ne izgledaš porjavelo čez poletje? Vsi vemo kako nevarno je postalo sonce in namesto, da bi se zunaj pražila kot čevapčiči na žaru, raje posezi po dobrih ličilih, ki ustvarijo zagorel videz brez poškodb kože. Danes ti bom pokazala kako z Avonovimi kroglicami za obraz dosežeš poletno obarvan videz, ki izgleda kot da si pravkar prišla iz Bahamov. 

Review: Sioris Time Is Running Out Mist

This is another one of those mist products from Korean skin care that I have been really enjoying. Mist products are especially nice to use in this hotter weather. It makes it so easy to apply and it's great to refresh your makeup during the day. Plus this one has some beneficial ingredients for your skin.

Review: Maybelline Tattoo Liner - 900 Onyx

I first heard about this liner from Mateja and when I saw it in the store, I decided to give it a try. As much as I love liquid liners, it's sometimes too much work to put on. Sometimes I just prefer a pencil which smudges quickly, gives me just enough definition and I'm already out the door. This new Maybelline Tattoo Liner is one of the better ones from the drugstore that I have tried in a while.

Review: Essence LE Sun. Sand. & Golden Rainbows. Matt Bronzing Powder - 02 beach days

I can't seem to get my beloved Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer in Slovenia anymore and because I had bad experience with iHerb delivery, I opted to find a cheap solution in drugstore. I saw Essence LE called Sun, Sand & Golden Rainbows Matt Bronzing Powder and decided to try it out. It's actually pretty descent and there is so much product in it, that I can easily use it on the body as well.

3 načini nošenja črtal za veke

Če tudi ti obožuješ črtala za veke, kot jaz, a jih ne znaš vedno zanimivo kombinirati, potem je ta objava zate. Pripravila sem ti 3 različne načine nošenja črtal za veke, ki bodo popolni za vse poletne priložnosti, pa naj bo to delo v pisarni, zabava ob bazenu ali večerna žurka. 

Review: Te Mana Skin Care Products

Te Mana is new natural brand from New Zeeland that is now also available in Slovenia. Ingredients are mostly organic and hand harvested from ancient rain forest in Aotearoa and combine modern and Maori knowledge. You'll also find Maori words on the products as well as symbols in their logo. I have to say I am always a bit skeptical testing natural skin care, but this one surprised me with their refined textures that I decided I need to share my thoughts with you. 

Review: Avon True Luminous Blush - Rose

I have been talking about this blush ever since I got it and I'm not a fan of pink blushes, so you know this one must be special. It's just one of those shades that instantly lifts up your complexion, but isn't too bright nor too dark. Just perfect pink for spring and summer.

May 2019 Favorites

It has been a busy month and I managed to buy a few new products as well as receive some that I have been testing out. It's one of those monthly favorites that features all new products that have impressed me. Because otherwise, I pretty much used all of my favorites from April and March.

Avonove barvite kombinacije ustnic in nohtov

Poletje je čas, ko začnejo eksperimentirati z barvami tudi tisti, ki po navadi niso navdušeni nad njimi. Če kdaj, potem si poleti lahko privoščiš najbolj nore odtenke lakov za nohte in rdečil za ustnice. Opažam, da so barviti nohti že nekaj časa stalnica med prav vsemi, tudi tistimi, ki se bojijo barv kjerkoli drugje. Pri rdečilih za ustnice je te drznosti manj. Zato bomo danes skupaj pregledale tri različne načine kombiniranja barv na ustnicah in nohtih.

Review: Rimmel Wonder's Swipe 2-in-1 Liner to Shadow - 001 Slay

One of the funnest ways to experiment with your eye makeup is with shimmery colorful liquid liners. I don't really own a lot of these. This one by Rimmel called Wonder's Swipe is actually a 2-in-1 product. You can use it as an eyeliner or eyeshadow. I've tried it as both.

Review: Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner - Black

Does anyone remember Catrice having gel liner in a pot? That one was my favorite gel liner. It stayed in place, was black and so affordable. I was so sad, when they decided to discontinue it. I wanted another gel liner, because it gives you that matte black finish and it's great for creating thinner lines or more creative eye makeup. After some research I decided to try out Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner in Black

Review: Avon Rare Flowers Night Orchid Eau de Parfum

The other day I was at a store and saleslady said to me that I smell so lovely. It was one of those rare compliments from a complete stranger that makes your day. I was wearing Avon's new Rare Flowers Night Orchid fragrance. It's one of those stronger fragrances with lots of floral notes and sweeter base, but with a punch. I have grown to really like it, although it seemed a bit too floral in the beginning. 

Review: Colourpop Super Shock Shadow - Ladybird

I have been a fan of Colourpop Super Shock Shadows ever since I got my first one. It's just something about this creamy formula that applies so nicely. Now I prefer glittery shades as toppers and don't really buy colorful ones anymore. My latest purchase was this gorgeous glittery shade called Ladybird.

Review: Avon True Perfectly Matte Lipsticks / šminke - Reds

Avon True Perfectly Matte je linija šmink z mat finišem. Je ena izmed mojih najljubših mat formul. V tej kampanji boš pri Avonu odkrila Avon True Perfectly Matte Reds. Gre za 9 mat rdečih odtenkov. Konec je izgovorov, da ti rdeča ne paše. Rdeča je tako klasična kot majhna črna oblekica - pristaja res vsem. Potrebno je samo najti pravi odtenek zase.

Avon True Perfectly Matte is a line of matte lipsticks. It's one of my favorite matte lipstick formulas in general. In this campaign by Avon you'll find 9 red matte lipstick shades. Now there are no more excuses that red doesn't suit you. Red is like the little black dress, it suits everyone. You just have to find the right shade of red for you. 

Review: Catrice One Drop Coverage Weightless Concealer (003 Porcelain, 050 Bronze Beige)

Catrice came out with One Drop Coverage Weightless Concealer to match their Catrice HD Liquid Coverage Foundation which I really like. I was intrigued by the pigmentation claims and dropper packaging. It's very hygienic and I see these concealers as covering drops for any part of makeup application.

New In (24)

Another new in post of all the products that I bought or received. I have tried all of these out, so here are quick thoughts and some full reviews of some of them. There's lots of new makeup, some skin and body care as well as two fragrances. 

April 2019 Favorites

Past month I had a lot of things to do and I started going on German course, so my makeup was almost always more of a natural feel. Just a good base, lots of bronzer and blush paired with fluffier lashes and juicy lip gloss. So naturally, this month's favorites are mostly those tried and true staples with some occasional novelties. 

Avon Rare Flowers Night Orchid Makeup

Inspiracija za današnji makeup je nova Avon Rare Flowers Night Orchid dišava. To je parfumska voda, ki združuje note črne orhideje, zlate gardenije in grenke pomaranče. Sama bi jo opisala kot spomladansko cvetlično sladko dišavo. Je čutna, elegantna dišava, ki poleg cvetličnih not združuje tudi ravno dovolj globine in sladkosti, da bo primerna tako za v pisarno kot tudi toplejše večere.

Review: Catrice HD Liquid Coverage Foundation - 036 Hazelnut Beige

If you have warm olive skin tone and trouble finding olive toned shades in drugstore foundations, I have a product for you. I have already spoken about Catrice HD Liquid Coverage Foundation, because it is out since 2016 and I love the formula. Catrice recently expanded their shade range ,which must be due to the good sells, and I can understand why. This is one of my favorite foundations from the drugstore.

Review: Yves Saint Laurent Tatouage Couture Liquid Matte Lip Stain - 23

I am not one for buying expensive lipsticks, as I have found so many great formulas in much more affordable ranges. But I actually won this Yves Saint Laurent Tatouage Couture Liquid Matte Lip Stain in a giveaway and thought it would be nice to write a review of it on my blog. Surprisingly, this is very good.

15-minutni Avon makeup za službo

Avon je ena izmed mojih najljubših znamk. Njihove izdelke uporabljam že leta in pri njih tudi kupujem določene izdelke, ki so stalnica v moji rutini. Današnja objava je nastala v sodelovanju z Avonom in je zato napisana v slovenščini. Namenjena je vsem vam, ki zjutraj raje spite, kot pa se zbudite eno uro prej, da bi ustvarile makeup. Prikazala vam bom mojo verzijo 15-minutnega makeup za službo, ki ga lahko osvoji vsaka in z najmanj truda doseže največji učinek.

Review: Elra Story Deep Hydrating Mask

I received five sheet masks from Jolse to test out. They are from a brand called Elra Story and it's their Deep Hydrating Masks. Ever since I tried my first Asian sheet masks, I love exploring more. Those are my favorite pamper skin care products to use whenever my skin is in need of a little more care. They provide the skin with a high concentration of serum like ingredients and it all penetrates into the skin well, because it's soaked in a sheet. 

Review: Catrice #peeloff Glam Effect Nail Polish - 03 When In Doubt, Just Add Glitter

I received this nail polish, because Catrice representatives from Slovenia saw this on my wishlist. What a lovely surprise it was and I knew immediately I will like it, because I already had Essence Glitter On Glitter Off Nail Polish 02 Razzle Dazzle which is pretty much the same formula as this one, but with smaller glitter and I love that formula, because it's so easy to remove. 

Review: Deborah Trio Contouring Palette

I have been on a hunt for that perfect contour shade since I heard about contouring. I know the "trend" has dialed down and is not that popular anymore, but contouring is a basic technique that will always be in use. I love to do the slightest contouring on the nose for photos as well as under the cheek bones for that definition that usually disappears under artificial lighting. 

Review: Avon True Matte Lipsticks - Nudes (All Colors)

I have praised my love for Avon lipsticks many times and their matte formula is one of the best matte formulas in a regular lipstick format. They had descent shade selection, but recently they've added 6 new nude shades. One of those (Au Naturale) was actually already available in this range. Good job Avon, we all wanted more nude shades, as those are one of the most worn ones in general. 

March 2019 Favorites

In March I have been really consistent with my skin care and I have actually included a lot of new products in my daily routine. Since I usually just talk about makeup, this is a nice change. I also discovered some new makeup along with using those all time favorites that are my staple. 

Review: COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence

This is again one of those products that was on my wishlist and I finally had the chance to try it out. Snail mucin is one of the star ingredients in Asian skin care and I have been hearing so much good things about this formula. It's safe to say, it didn't disappoint. 

Review: L.O.V. BLUSHment Blurring Blush - 30 Beautiful Minds Empower Other

L.O.V. was once in our Müller stores and back then I didn't pay much attention to this brand. But then they started to came out with very interesting products, once they were already gone from Slovenia, so I usually checked their stand in Austria. I got this blush there, when it was half off, because Austrian DM also discontinued L.O.V. 

6th Blogiversary Giveaway Winner

Moja vsakoletna nagradna igra je končana. Izžrebala sem nagrajensko.

New In (23)

Another bash of freshly new products from the drugstore that I either received or bought myself. Let's talk what's new and what's good enough to consider buying. 

Trend Alert 2019: Neon Eyeliner

Neon is back for the spring and summer of 2019 in pretty much everything, but also makeup. As it has been demonstrated in runway shows, a pop of neon eyeshadow or eyeliner will make you very trendy this upcoming season. I wanted to try out this trend, because it looked very minimalistic, yet colorful in a way. 

Review: Maybelline Fit Me! Matte + Poreless - 100 Warm Ivory

I have heard a lot of good reviews of Maybelline Fit Me! Matte + Poreless foundation and although I also heard some saying it's not matte, I still got it because of the shade. It was one of those rare really light drugstore foundations. Sadly, this has really disappointed me. 

6th Blogiversary

I can't believe it's been six years since I started writing this blog. I am nothing, if not persistent when I decide on something. Beauty has always been in my life and I have just recently realized how much this affects me.

Review: Essence Micro Precise Eyebrow Pencil - 02 light brown

Essence added new Micro Precise Eyebrow Pencils to their range. In an instant I saw these, it reminded me of Catrice Slim'matic version. After all, it's the same brand and they are both known for bringing out similar products. I love these tiny brow pencils for defining the edges of my brows.

Review: Avon Eve Truth Eau de Parfum

Spring is finally here and so is Avon's new fragrance called Eve Truth which is spring bottled up. This is one of those fresher, lighter fragrances that you'll love, if you like fruity floral scents.

Review: Ecotools Sheer Finish Blush and Blending & Bronzing Brush

I have talked about Ecotools brushes on my blog already. They are one of those drugstore priced brushes that have nice quality bristles and durable bamboo handles. I have a few of my favorites from them, so I ordered some more shapes to try out. 

Review: Heimish Artless Glow Base SPF50+/PA+++

I once got a tester of Heimish Artless Glow Base and I really liked it. Ever since then, I was eyeing it, but never really bought it. Skin Trick saw that I had it on my wishlist and kindly offered to send it to me. Plus another product that I will talk in a separate post. I was so happy to finally get a full size. This is a real multitasker.

February 2019 Favorites

I didn't wear as much makeup as I usually do and when I wore it, I opted for something quick and easy. Some of the newly found products made their way to this months favorites. I also rediscovered some old products. I always try to switch up my makeup products, otherwise I never use them all.

Review: Avon True Nourishing Lip Oil - Blossom

Avon added new type of product to their lip range called Nourishing Lip Oil. They call it oil, but it's more of a nourishing and moisturizing lip balm and lip gloss hybrid. Based on the name I expected something totally different, but this formula immediately became one of my favorites.

Makeup Lover Nails

I have been seeing lashes design on nails everywhere. I saw this combination of lipstick with lashes somewhere, but I can't find the author. It's definitely not my idea, but I wanted to try it out. I also paired it with a ribbon heart to represent the love of makeup. 

Review: The Little Book of Skin Care by Charlotte Cho

If you're into Korean or Asian skin care or if you are just dabbling in that world, The Little Book of Skin Care by Charlotte Cho will be your new favorite read. It's got everything that you ever wondered about Korean skin care routine with a little culture lesson about Korea as well as some personal experiences by Charlotte Cho moving from California to South Korea. I found it to be really interesting, educational, at times funny and easy read.

Review: The Body Shop LE Cactus Blossom - Shower Gel, Exfoliating Gel Body Scrub, Body Yogurt

The Body Shop has come out with a new limited edition collection called Cactus Blossom. It's celebrating upcoming Mother's Day. I have to say I would never think of cactus as a symbol of motherhood, but they explained it well. Cactus flower is protective, strong, resilient, beautiful and full of surprises, just like mothers.

Review: Colourpop Creme Lux Lipstick - Quickie

I've wanted one of those Colourpop Lux Lipsticks ever since they came out with them. Partly, because they have nice color selection and partly because of the pretty packaging. I chose shade Quickie, because I've always been on a hunt for peachy nude. 

Review: Revolution Pro 4K Highlighter Palette - Rose Gold

You know me, I love highlighters, so I'm always excited when I get new ones, even if they are similar to the ones in my collection. This time I tested one of the Makeup Revolution brands called Revolution Pro, which should be a more professional line. In the palette you get four shades that pretty much cover most skin tones.

Review: Colourpop Pressed Powder Shadow - Hear Me Out, Wake Up Call, Made To Last, Paper Tiger, Let's Do It

I already have a few Colourpop Pressed Powder Shadows and I store them all in their magnetic large palette. I like Colourpop formula, because it's nicely pigmented and they have a good color selection. Plus the prices are affordable. When I was ordering some products from Colourpop, I added some of their shadows as well.
