Festive Nails with AVON

Today I finally have a post for you that I talked about. I thought I couldn't do it, because my phone died but they fixed it so fast I can't even believe, 6 days, that's how quickly they fixed it, usually it takes 1 month or so to do it. Anyway, let's start with the post, I prepared for you a review of some glittery nail polishes by Avon.
Avon Liquid Sequin nail polish
I am reviewing Avon company products for the first time on my blog. I have had some products of them, but that was some time ago. Recently, they kindly sent me some nail polishes, which are perfect for this holiday season!

Preview: Essence Valentine – Who Cares? TE

Today I have another preview for you, it's Valentine - Who Cares?  trend edition from Essence. I wanted to post some festive nails with glitters and some other festive things, but I only photographed two notd's and then my phone died. Now I have an older one and I can't photograph anything. I hope they will fix it so I can start blogging again. 

Always together: BFFs! The new essence trend edition “valentine – who cares?” is welcoming a different kind of Valentine’s Day from mid January to mid February 2016. Wild, rebellious and casual, we’re breaking with old traditions and dedicating the day of love to best friends. This means: lots of fun and action for two! Edgy products in intensive colors like red, blue and black as well as metallic beige and khaki tones for strong styles. The favorites: the false lashes in two versions and the click & go nails with a stiletto design. The face & body tattoo stamp with an infinity symbol creates a trendy BFF tattoo and the limited, fruity-sweet scent underlines the rebel queen slumbering within every girl. Sisters before misters… with essence!

Essence Merry Berry TE Nail Polish Swatches

For me, Merry Berry TE is the most interesting Essence's TE in the whole year. Essence choose Christmasy colors and the packaging is simply adorable. I got just three nail polishes, although I wanted to buy some lipsticks too, but I rarely use lipsticks, so that would be a practically waste of money. 

I bought three nail polishes: 03 pink & perfect, 02 purple with purpose and a top coat in 01 I love my golden pumps. First something about nail polishes. The brush is straight cut and wide, I wasn't having any trouble applying the polish. The formula is creamy and well pigmented. All the polishes dry very quickly. And, of course, the bottle, like I said it's adorable with that little round cap on it, it looks very festive.

My Favourite Nail Polishes for Winter

Today I have some winter and Christmas nail polish colors for you. For me, these are the colors, that I think of when someone says winter or Christmas. I chose some reds, blues, a white and some glitter nail polishes. Some of them aren't available in stores anymore (some glitter ones), but it doesn't even matter which brand is it, because glitter nail polish you can find anywhere.

Empties #5

Balea Bodylotion in Tropical Sunshine and Mango Mambo
I bought the first one in June, it is a limited edition, but it is still available in DM. The smell is what it says, tropical mango, to me it smells amazing, so I bought another one. The second one smells good too, but it didn't impress me. They aren't the most moisturizing, but they are cheap (around 1,5€).

If you would like to see a review of something, just comment down below. I don't have much time, so lets get started.

Preview: Catrice Treasure Trove LE

Here is a preview of Treasure Trove limited edition from Catrice. I can only say one thing about it: packaging!

Essence Pure Nude Makeup

Today I have for you a review on Essence Pure Nude Make-up. I have seen some posts about it and first I didn't plan to review it. Then I realised that most of the girls aren't really satisfied with it and decided to make a review anyway, because I like it. It's my first proper foundation (I already had one Essence and one Manhattan foundation, but I didn't wear them. Manhattan wasn't even my skin color, but that was years ago, when I didn't know anything about foundations). 
First something about my skin. I didn't wear foundation, because I don't have acne, mostly I have clear skin, although sometimes I get that small annoying pimples on my forehead and nose, but you can't really see them, unless you look close. I only bought this foundation to even out my skin a little bit.

Essence Pure Nude Makeup 20 pure sand review

What Essence says about it: natural nude… the new foundation convinces with its light texture and natural finish. it reliably conceals irregularities of the skin and has a subtle mattifying effect. the liquid formula blends wonderfully with the skin for a gorgeous “no make-up” feeling. So, lets see what I think about it.

Packaging and Shade

The foundation comes in a plastic packaging. You can't see how much product is left. It has a pump, which works well, I didn't have any problems with it. A big plus to me is, that it also comes with a tape around the lid, so people can't open every single foundation to test them (that's what testers are for!). You get 30ml of product in the packaging.
You can get this foundation in three shades: 10 pure beige, 20 pure nude and 30 pure honey. I bought the second shade. First I wanted to get shade 30 because I had a tan, but now I'm happy that I chose this one because it matches perfectly with my skin. 

Essence Pure Nude Makeup 20 pure sand review

Texture, Coverage and Staying Power

The foundation is quite runny, it is really easy to blend. I apply it with the sponge (I have one sponge from Tedi and one from eBay). It has a very light coverage. For me this is enough, but if you want better coverage, this foundation won't be for you. It actually looks like I don't wear a foundation, but in the same time it does even out my skin a little bit. They say that foundation should mattify the skin, but it doesn't mattify mine really well, because I have normal to oily skin. I set it with an Essence Mattifying Compact Powder. With this combination it lasts on my skin for almost a whole day.

Essence Pure Nude Makeup 20 pure sand review

Overall, this is a great foundation for someone who likes a natural finish. You won't even notice when you will be wearing it. The one thing that bothered me very much at the beginning was the scent, which is very strong, I can't even describe it. But then, after a couple of uses I got used to it, now it doesn't even bother me, sometimes I don't even notice it, when I'm applying the foundation.

I got it in Müller for 4,29€.

Have you tried this foundation? What do you think about it?

NOTD: Essence The Gel Nail Polish in 49 Turn The Lights On!

This nail polish from Essence it's new in their The Gel nail polish range, it's called Turn The Lights On!
I would describe this color as almost white with a hint of blue. I applied two coats and on top a top coat from the same range. I don't use the matching base coat, because it has disappointed me when I've used it. I just use a top coat and the polish doesn't chip after a third-fourth, maybe even fifth day, once it lasted on me for eight days! (I just had white tips).

Catrice Absolute Matt Eyeshadow Palette

I didn't have any of the Catrice palettes until I bought this Absolute Matt Eyeshadow Palette. They caught my attention, because of the simple packaging and beautiful eyeshadows. I decided to buy one, but I wasn't sure which one. At first, I wanted to buy the new one, that came out, Chocolate Nudes, but I saw on Instagram, that the quality of the eyeshadows isn't the best. Then I remembered that Mateja from Mateja's Beauty Blog raved about these palettes, so I searched on her blog and her favourite was this matte one. I'm really impressed how good quality this palette is for just 5,29€.

NOTD: Essence Happy Girls Are Pretty LE (04 Just Happy!)

Happy Girls Are Pretty is a new limited edition from Essence. I only bought one nail polish. I also wanted to buy a cute blush with a heart on it and one more nail polish (03 enjoy the little things) from this collection, but they were all gone in my store.

Essence Happy  Girls Are Pretty TE - nail polish 04 Just Happy!

This polish is called 04 Just Happy! I applied 3 coats. I like the brush, the polish is easy to apply evenly on the nails, but it could be more opaque. It dried pretty fast too. 
I can't say much on how long it lasts, I only wore it on my nails for two days and in that time it stayed the same.

Random Summer Pictures

As you can see, lately I'm posting some random lifestyle posts and not so many beauty reviews, because I wasn't really feeling it. But recently I bought some makeup stuff and I'm already testing it (Catrice Absolute Matte Palette will be on my blog soon). 
Also, I decided to post some of my pictures that I took in summer. I will probably do this type of post weekly/monthly (I haven't decided yet) on my blog, like a series of some pictures that I take throughout the week/month. I want to take more pictures in my life, because it's so good to look back to some things. I only need the name for the series and I can't think of any, you can leave some suggestions in the comments. :)
Pictures from this post were mostly taken in Izola, Simonov zaliv.

Magic Planner

I have been looking for a planner that would work for me for a long time. I have seen Erin Condren planners and I was seriously thinking about ordering one. Then I decided to not pay so much money for just a planner. I was also looking on e-bay, but I didn't like any. Then I found this Magic Planner, which I love. 
Magic Planner is a new Slovenian company, whose founder is Katarina. She actually came on the idea of designing her own planner, when she couldn't find a perfect planner for her sister.

Magic Planner: Sprinkle your life with magic dust (Perfect planner)

Magic Planner actually looks a bit like an Erin Condren one, it has a similar layout of the monthly and weekly page, but its unique in its own way. It has a lot of extra pages, you can make a bucket list, you have a vacation planning page, day schedule, a shopping list... The only thing that I miss about this planner is lined paper at the back for taking notes. 

Magic Planner: Sprinkle your life with magic dust (Perfect planner)

The planner comes with a monthly page, this one it's like an overview of the whole month. Then you also have a month on two pages (picture below) where you can write down your appointments or anything. 
One of the things that I like about this planner is how the weekly page is designed. You can actually make a to-do lists in each of the days. 

Magic Planner: Sprinkle your life with magic dust (Perfect planner)

Magic Planner has a bunch of quotes and beautiful illustrations throughout the whole planner. One of my favorite quotes: Surround yourself with people who are smarter, faster, better than you, so you can be uplifted by their models and inspired by their examples.

Magic Planner: Sprinkle your life with magic dust (Perfect planner)

You can get this planner for 15€ on Magic Planner online shop. You can also choose a cover that you like (they have 12 different covers) and get some other things from the online store, like notebooks, motivational cards and t-shirts with their beautiful designs.

Magic Planner: Sprinkle your life with magic dust (Perfect planner)
*This planner was sent to me

For me, this is a great planner and I'm really happy that I got it.
Do you have this planner? Do you like it?

Some Facts About Me

Today I'm going to write some facts about me, so you can get to know me better. I only thought about 16 facts at the moment, but maybe I will do a part two of this post. 

1. I love history (pretty much everything, but I find 1st and 2nd war the most interesting).
2. I don't like Nutella.
3. I love watching series, some that I watch: Once Upon A Time (cant wait for the new season), The Vampire Diaries, Baby Daddy, Orange Is A New Black, Young And Hungry, Breaking Bad, Supernatural, Pretty Little Liars (I liked a couple of seasons, but now some things are just stupid).

4. I wear glasses for 5-6 years now.
5. I used to love reading, but then I came to high school and I didn't have time anymore. 
6. I love traveling, like they say: If traveling was free you will never see me again. ;)
7. I don't drink tea, actually I drink it when I'm really sick, and when I do, I squeeze almost a whole lemon and honey in it.
8. I love sour things.
9. I would love to learn French (now I speak English, German, Spanish and of course Slovenian).
10. I would love to have a tattoo (maybe at the end of the year I will get one). I really like small tattoos that have a meaning. I have been planning to have a star on the right side of my wrist since I was little, because I love stars and star patterned anything. I also plan to have a saying, something about never giving up, or something to stay motivated, but I don't know which one yet and I won't make a tattoo if I don't wish it for at least a year or two.
11. I love baking (cupcakes, pies, cookies), but I hate cooking.
12. I love blue color and I don't like pink.
13. I like exercising. I like the feeling of sore muscles. I used to love running, but then I had a surgery on my knee and I had to stop. Now I exercise on my indoor bicycle. 
14. I hate elevators.
15. Im very impatient.
16. I love animals, dogs are my favorite.

Products I Want To Use Up

I saw that I have some things that I don't really use or I want to use up so I can try different ones, so I decided to make a list of things to use up. I plan to use up these products by the end of the year. This will be a short post, I just wanted to make a post, so that I can compare how successful I was at the end of  the year.

Maybelline Mini Colorama nail polish in 88 Peach Cocktail 
I bought this polish a long time ago and I have used it a lot, but recently I didn't like the color anymore. I don't know if I'm going to finish this polish, just because it's not a autumn-ish color, but I will try.

Catrice Ultimate Colour Lipstick in 190 The Nuder The Better and Essence Lipstick in 53 All About Cupcake 
Recently, I haven't been using lipstick much, I have these two for some time now and I want to use them up. 

Essence Eyeshadow in 58 Cappuccino, Please! 
Lately, I have been using palettes a lot and not single eyeshadows, so I want to get rid of some. 

Essence Match 2 Cover Cream Concealer 
I don't use this product as concealer, but like a primer. I apply it before I put eyeshadow on my lids and it works well, eyeshadows stay in place. It doesn't work as well as a proper primer, but it's good.

Essence Quattro Eyeshadow in 05 To Die For 
I use this every day when I go to school, so this won't be a big trouble to finish. I want to use it up, because I already bought a new palette and eyeshadows, that I want to try out.

Afrodita Clean Phase Tonic (Normal to oily skin) 
At first this tonic was working very good on my skin, but then for some reason I stopped using it. I will try to use it up.

Fruttini Strawberry Starfruit Body Spray 
This just doesn't want to get empty haha! I am using it every day, but not like a body spray, because I got bored of the scent. I spray it around my room a couple of times a day. I hope this will be gone soon.

Thank you for reading!

I love... Cosmetics Revitalizing Shower Gels

It's September already. A year ago at this time I would already be in school, but not this year. This year I'm starting in October. I just can't believe that summer is over. I like other seasons, but summer is my favourite because I love the sea, sun, bright colors, everything summer related. 
Today I'm going to write about two shower gels, that I bought and really like. It is a first impression because I haven't used it so much, that I could give a proper review.

I Love... Cosmetics Shower Gel, Tangerine Dream, Juicy Watermelon

I Love... Cosmetics is a British bath, body and beauty brand. Some time ago, this I Love... shower gels were very popular on many blogs. Last time, when I was in Tuš Drogerija I first saw this orange one and I had to smell it, because I was sure that it smells amazing (I love orangy smell). They had a sale, one was 1,74€ or something like that, but you had to buy two, so basically two for the price of one. That's why I bought the other one. 

I bought Juicy Watermelon and Tangerine Dream. Both are soap free, paraben free and are pH balanced. They have a beautiful clear plastic packaging with a clear-top cap. The gel is runny, but not too much, I would suggest using a loofah. You don't need much of the products and it washes off easily. I wouldn't say it moisturises the skin, but it doesn't dry it either.

I Love... Cosmetics Shower Gel, Tangerine Dream, Juicy Watermelon

They have a super fruity scent although it doesn't stay on the skin for long. I would absolutely suggest these shower gels to anyone that likes fruity fragrances. They contain 250mL of the product and you can get them for around 3-4€.

Have you tried I love... shower gels? Do you like them?

Mini Beauty Reviews #2 (Balea Edition)

balea dusch peeling, washgel, fuss lotion

Today I have a second post of Mini Beauty Reviews, for this one I decided to review only Balea products.

Balea Duschpeeling mit Mandarinnen- und Orangenduft
First, I love the smell. It's a very strong orangy smell. The peeling comes in a squeeze tube and the opening enables easy dosage. The product is on the thicker side. It is a big bottle and it will last you quite a long time, believe me. I use it once or twice a week, later I apply a body cream and my skin feels very smooth.

Balea Erfrischendes Washgel
I use this every day, morning and evening (except sometimes I use Afrodita cleaning foam, because I want to use it up). I switched to this one, because it is a lot cheaper than Afrodita (1.95€, I think) and it suits my skin better. It comes out like a gel, but it foams on your skin. It also cleans makeup, except it doesn't do a great job at removing waterproof mascara.

Balea Fusslotion mit Minzöl und Blutorangen-Extrakt
I bought this mostly because of the smell. It smells exactly how it says, like mint and oranges. It kinda remindes me of some sort of candy, but I dont remember which one. I apply this at evening and put my socks on (yes, I do sleep with my socks on. It has to be very hot for me to take my socks off haha). So far I like it, it moisturizes my feet well.

Top 6 Summer Products

Today I have a post about my favourite 6 products for summer. I don't use these products every single day, just when I go somewhere. Mostly I use just a mascara. Hope you enjoy reading.

1. Catrice Camouflage Cream
Normally I have clear skin, but when I need a good concealer, I use this one. It covers blemishes almost completely and it doesn't smudge on me.

2. Powder (Essence mattifying compact powder)
I use this powder every time when I go somewhere. I use it on my forehead mostly, because it gets a bit shiny. It mattifies my face well, I like it.

I always use bronzer, I like that bronzy look. My go-to bronzer that I use is in this Makeup Revolution palette. My absolute favourite bronzer is from Essence (Sun Club matt bronzing powder), but when I'm in a hurry I use this one.

Again, my go-to blush. I use this blush and bronzer when I don't have much time to do my makeup.

5. Mascara (Maybelline Rocket Volum' Mascara)
Favourite of mine for a long time. If you would ask me to choose only one product that I could use in the summer, it would be this mascara. It gives my lashes volume and it lengthens them.

6. Lip Balm (Blistex Classic Lip Protector)
I  havent tried a lip balm that would work so well on my lips and I've tried Baby Lips, Nivea, Labello and lots of others. It moisturises my lips, they don't  look shiny. And it's cheap (around 2-3€). I own different smells, but this one is just a classic, that I always have in my bag.

NOTD: Catrice - Love Affair In Bel Air

Two coats                                                                    Three coats
Love Affair In Bel Air is a new polish by Catrice cosmetics. I have been searching for this shade of pink/rose polish since I bought hola, guapa by Essence. I have liked this color so much, that I almost used it up, so I decided to search for a similar color.
The shade is very similar to Hola, guapa, but this one has a shiny finish. I prefer mat finish for this shade, but it doesn't bother me much. I can just buy a matt top coat.

Do you like new Catrice nail polishes?

Balea Vitamin Shampoo


I have talked about shampoos a lot recently (I have been loving Subrina, Afrodita), but now I have discovered my new obsession. It contains 500ml and you can get it in DM for 0,99€. The number one reason why I decided to buy it, beside the price, is the smell. It smells heavenly fruity.

It foams good, I would say maybe even too good, but I like that. You don't need a lot of the product. It says on the packaging that you need to leave it on your hair for a couple of minutes to work. I have been testing it when I went to the seaside and I washed my hair twice a day, just because I don't like salty, hard hair. I also wanted to have a good shampoo for dry hair, because I was always on the sun or in the water. 

I have used it with my conditioner. My hair feels very smooth after I wash my hair and I have used only about half a bottle. I have been using it on my hair twice a day for almost a week. Usually, I wash my hair once every two to three days. 

I would really recommend this shampoo if you have dry hair!

Catrice - It's A Very Berry Bash

Today I have an NOTD for you, with a new nail polish from Catrice, called It's A Very Berry Bash. I never really liked red nail polish, but something has changed. In two or three months I bought a couple of them, different shades, of course, I see that they are different, but my boyfriend doesn't :P So, when I went to DM to see, if they already have the new collections from Catrice and Essence, I saw this beauty and I bought it. But when I came home, I realize that I already bought a very similar shade from Manhattan two months ago.

Catrice Its a very berry bash

Like the name says, it's a berry toned color. This polish has a nice brush (that I forgot to take a picture of). It says on the bottle, that they have a new brush. I compared it with an old nail polish. And don't see much of a difference, maybe the new one is slightly bigger. 
I didn't really test how long would it last on my nails. I only had it on for two days, but it didn't chip. 

On the picture above you can see the comparison with Manhattan Quick Dry nail polish in 57U. They are very similar, but the Catrice one is slightly darker.

Thank you for reading!
