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.

January 2019 Favorites

Another month has passed. I feel like I always feature mostly new products in my favorites, but this month I have rediscovered some of my old favorites. These are my staples as well as some products that I was newly introduced to and have already make great impression. 

New In (22)

It has been a while since my last new in post. There is a lot of material for another one as well. But here is first half of the product that I ordered before Christmas and some of the product that I got as PR packages. It's mostly just makeup.

Review: L.O.V. Highlighting Drops, Lash Primer, Magnetic Loose Eyeshadow and Volume Gloss

L.O.V. was previously in our Müller stores, but then they discontinued the brand. Now it's back, but only in online shop - Lič I think we all missed it. It's a sister brand to Catrice and Essence, but a much more elegant and slightly higher priced. I have a few of their products and the quality did not disappoint. I received and tested some more. Here are my thoughts. 

My Favorite - Red Lipsticks

I love a good red lipstick. Usually, warm tones are my kind of deal. But I love a good classic cool red lipstick just as well. It's especially nice for making your teeth look whiter. You'll see more matte formulas among these, because darker shades just tend to wear better matte. Plus there's less maintenance and checking in the mirror.

Review: Revolution Pro Supreme Eyeshadow - Allure

Makeup Revolution constantly comes out with new products. Just recently they added a new sub-brand called Revolution Pro. I'm assuming this is more of a makeup for professional use, so for makeup artists and such. I received some products from that brand and so far I like them all. Today I'm talking about Revolution Pro Supreme Eyeshadow in shade Allure. 

Review: Colourpop Ultra Glossy Lip - Snow Day

I already own one of those new shimmery Colourpop Ultra Glossy Lips lip glosses and since I loved the formula so much, I wanted to add another shade to my collection. Also because I almost completely used up On Board. I chose a more neutral transparent shade called Snow Day which goes with pretty much every colored base. 

2018 Favorite Posts

2018 has been good in terms of beauty. I set myself a goal to post more nail art and makeup looks and I feel like I have reached it. There were many new interesting products to review as well as some new categories of posts that I introduced on my blog. Writing about trends was a fun new topic as well as finally coming around to doing my all time favorite products posts in different categories. I still have some of those coming up in 2019. 

Here are some of the posts that I have enjoyed creating the most. Starting with makeup looks that I think were finally becoming more interesting and versatile. I am also proud of my nail art that I feel has evolved a bit as well. Among other posts I have decided to feature those that I really liked writing or I loved the photos I took of the products and those that I found would be really helpful for any of my readers. 

2018 Favorite Skin And Body Care

Here is the second part of my 2018 favorites. I'm talking about my favorite skin care, body care, hair care and fragrances that I was introduced to in 2018. I see some of these becoming my staples. Some I have already repurchased. 

2018 Favorite Makeup

Another beauty year is behind us. I have gathered my favorite makeup products from 2018. As per usual, I only feature products that I have discovered in 2018. I have a full series of all time favorite posts anyway, so this is just new discoveries from 2018. 

Review: Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Concealer - C1

It's been a while since I've been impressed with concealer. I was avoiding buying Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define concealer, because there was so much hype around it and for some reason I just didn't trust the quality. But when I saw it on sale and how affordable it was, I threw it in my basket. I haven't regretted it. 

December 2018 Favorites

December has been eventful, like every year. Lots of cozy moments with the books that I finally started reading again, lots of new products that I either received or bought and I became auntie, which was definitely the highlight of this month.
