September 2021 Favorites


L.O.V. X Laetitia Lemak Dream Glaze Sculpting Duo

I am a huge fan of some of L.O.V products, especially their blushes which are one of my all time favorite. When I saw them make a collaboration collection with Laetitia Lemak, I was very excited. Laetitia's makeup style is so fresh and chic looking. I knew she must have made gorgeous products. Out of blush, highlighting and sculpting duos, I felt sculpting one would compliment my kit best. It's a very soft powdery texture with one more cooler sculpting shade and one warmer bronze shade. I have to say contour can sometimes look to warm on my skin tone, I personally prefer something more grey toned. However, bronzer shade is just gorgeous. More on the warm yellow tone and you can build these two up or apply them sheerer. As far as blending goes, it seems to be fine so far, though it really depends on how well I blend foundation underneath. I have noticed that they don't last all day, but I still have to test it further. I put this in my favorites manly because of that bronzer shade which fits my skin tone so well and looks very natural. Plus it has the pigmentation, but can also be blended out well. Unfortunately, we can't get L.O.V products in Slovenia which is a shame. 

Catrice Blush Box Glowing + Multicolour 030 Warm Soul

I already have 020 It's Wine O'clock shade which is just lovely, that perfect mauve pink. They've added 030 Warm Soul which I was very excited for. It looked a bit brownish to me in the pan, however on my warm skin tone it turns more pinkish coral. I though it would look more coral or peachy on me, but it's actually warm pink. It goes with pretty much every look, has great pigmentation, gives a bit of that sheen without shimmer and it lasts very well. It's probably one of the better blushes in the drugstore. 

Catrice Lash Changer Volume Mascara Waterproof

Another new product that has been added to Catrice range recently and another love for me. It has that natural hair brush, but it's slimmer and thinner which coats lashes well. Formula is on the wet site, but it doesn't make the lashes look clumpy at all. In fact I love separation that it gives me as well as volume. It's definitely easy to remove, but not waterproof. I wore it when it was raining on me and this smeared all over my face. Plus sometimes it can crumble down through the day, but it's not too bad. 

Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipclor 645 HD Forever

Revlon lip products are one of my favorite formulas I own. All of their products have one thing in common, they are all very comfortable to wear. I love Ultra HD Matte formula and Forever is one of those perfect pinkish brownish shades. It's a creamy formula that need a long time to dry down to matte finish and even then it gives me this very comfortable velvet finish that never feels drying or looks crusty on the lips. I haven't been wearing a lot of lipsticks these days, as there is no point with wearing face mask everywhere, but on special occasions I usually reached for this one and the new Gel Lipcolor. 

L'Oreal Elseve Dream Long No Haircut Cream Leave-In

Since I only use Joico K-Pak Reconstructor leave-in every once and a while and since I don't have any other leave-in products anymore, I realized this one isn't bad at all. I feel like all Dream Long products have this amazing fruity summery scent that lingers on my hair and makes me feels so nice. Plus this cream sort of hydrates my hair and I feel like they look smoother as to when I don't use it. It's a descent drugstore products, though it's no Joico for sure.

Bath & Body Works Fine Fragrance Mist Twilight Woods

Seems like this is my official autumnal scent for years now. It's just such a huge bottle and I don't use fragrances every day, so I don't use it up as quickly. But it's one of the best woody sweet oriental scents I own. For a fragrance mist this has amazing staying power. I swear I still smell it on my hair at the end of the day. I bring it out as soon as summer ends and cooler weather kicks in and this year is no different.

Glamping Mountain Fairy Tale

At the end of September we went to a short gateway to Glamping Mountain Fairy Tale near Tržič. We've never been to this part of Slovenia and it turned out to be such a nice stay. Glamping includes small mobile homes made of natural wood material which are actually very well made. You also get private hot tub which is made of wooden barrel just like they used to use for wine making. It's an experience on its own. We spent two days hiking around the beautiful nature and I can definitely recommend you to visit Dovžanova soteska and Blejski vintgar, if you ever come to those parts of Slovenia. I was also very impressed by mini house cakes from Firbc' okn restaurant. They were gorgeous looking and not too sweet. Any change is always nice, but spending a few days without TV and in the nature, was much needed. We both enjoyed it very much.
