Review: DermaluxLash Growth Serum

I was lucky enough to have won DermaluxLash serum in a giveaway. I have never before tried any of such lash growth serums, but I was always curious. Usually, the price was the one that threw me off. These products are not cheap, but let me tell you, I am planning on buying it again. That's how good it was.

Review: Avon K-Beauty (Cica Sheet Mask, Jelly Lip Mask and Golden Mushroom Sleep Mask)

In February Avon came out with a whole new range called K-Beauty. It's actually made in Korea, so I had really high hopes. As you may have noticed, I already use a lot of Korean skin care in my routine and there are many products that have become my staple. Asian skin care has become really popular outside of Asia as well and many western companies are adding to their range. Avon also being one of those. I had the chance to try out three products from this range.

Review: Catrice Eyeconista Mascara - Regular And Waterproof

As soon as I saw Catrice came out with their regular version of Eyeconista Lash Millionizer Volume Mascara, it immediately reminded me of Maybelline Lash Sensational - because of the packaging as well as the wand. I heard people raving about it, but I was skeptical, until I finally gave in and bought it. Since then I also received waterproof version, so here is comparison of the two. 

Euphoria Rhinestones Makeup

I have been loving watching HBO's series Euphoria which I came upon by seeing other beauty gurus recreate makeup looks from that series. It's about a group of teenagers dealing with issues like sex, drugs and violence. But the best visual part about it, is the makeup. It features fun, whimsical, party and sometimes graphic makeup looks that make you want to go back to high school. I would say that there are three reoccurring themes with makeup - graphic colors, glitter and rhinestones. I too wanted to create a version of makeup inspired by one of Maddy's looks from that series.

August 2019 Favorites

This month I mostly used products that are staple in my routine and have been for years. I had very little time to experiment. There are just a few new products. I also fell in love with another TV series. 

Review: Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure - 218 Devil Wears Nada

I really like Sally Hansen nail polish formulas. They all have such a nice creamy formula, great shade selection and they usually last on my nails really well. So when I saw one of the nude shades in TK Maxx, I got it. 

Review: Max Factor Makeup - Powder, Mascara, Lipstick

A while ago, I received beautiful package with Max Factor makeup products. Special thing about it was that the lipstick had my name and surname engraved in the packaging. I never got any personalized makeup products like that before and I think it is so nice and special. 

Review: Catrice Crystallized Amethyst Eyeshadow Palette 010 Raise Up Your Voice

Catrice has launched a bunch of new products in their standard line. It's part of revamp that they do twice a year. They've added some new eyeshadow palettes and two of those are inspired by crystals. Apparently this is the new "it" thing in beauty world right now. I have been testing out their Crystallized Amethyst Eyeshadow Palette in shade 010 Raise Up Your Voice.

Review: Paese Makeup and Skin Care

I have already tried a good amount of Paese products in the past. You can find reviews here and here. Some actually really impressed me, like their Silky Matt lipsticks and Rice Powder. I have a few more products to talk about that I have been trying out lately.

Review: NYX Micro Brow Pencil - Taupe

I was avoiding buying NYX Micro Brow Pencil for such a long time, because I just thought it's too expensive. But then I had the chance to check out shades in person in store and I gave it a go. It's always compared to Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz. I am cheap when it comes to brown pencils, because I use them daily and there's so little product in it, that I go through it so fast. 

Review: Catrice Blush Box Glowing + Multicolour - 020 It's wine o'clock

Continuing with Catrice new launches, here is another new at their stand, their Blush Box Glowing + Multicolour glowing powder blush. I have to say I haven't had many of Catrice blushes before, but they seem to be a favorite and it's because of great formula. This one is no exception. 

July 2019 Favorites

In July I was so boring with my makeup choices. I tested some new products that quickly became my favorites and just stick to the old products that I know and love. I could pretty much copy my June and May favorite, because I used most of those products. I am also including some hair products that have impressed me lately.

Review: Avon Attraction Sensation Eau de Parfum

Avon has launched many of my all time favorite fragrances and I always look forward to what they'll bring out next. I've said many times that they have one of the best and most affordable fragrances out there. It's just a bit harder to buy, which must be the main reason why many don't own them. Attraction is one of best selling ranges and they have recently added a new version called Sensation

Review: OPI Nail Lacquer - Now Museum, Now You Don't and Sun, Sea and Sand in My Pants

I have never had any OPI nail polishes, but I remember this brand being very popular back in the day. It had one of the most unique nail polish shades in the time where there weren't new makeup and nail launches coming out every day. I received two shades from Lisbon collection, which was actually spring/summer collection of 2018

Review: Catrice Luminice Highlight & Bronze Glow Palette - 020 Feel Gold

Catrice is again renewing their standard stand with some new products. They do these revamps about two times a year. I had the chance to try some of the new products out. Part of their newest products range are also two Luminice Highlight & Bronze Glow Palettes. I have the more golden one named 020 Feel Gold.

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.
