New In #22 Avon Blogger Mail

New In #22 Avon Blogger Mail - Lana Talks

Avon has been spoiling us bloggers again. Not long ago they sent us a summery themed package. I decided to do a whole blogger mail post, because I like doing them and I probably wouldn't do a whole post about each of the products, so I wanted to just do one post with mini reviews. I will leave the current offers, as well as the normal prices and you can see the current catalog here. This one is available until 6th of September.

Essence Mattifying Compact Powder
My favourite powder ever, I repurchased a lot of these. I used it up some time ago and I already have a backup.

Makeup Revolution Pro Fix Oil Control Fixing Spray
I can't say much about this. I tried it when I got it a long time ago, I ordered it when Makeup Revolution came to Slovenia, but I didn't like it, I don't really remember why, I think the scent was too strong and alcoholic. Since then it was sitting in my drawer, now I just decided to throw it out.

Slovenian Seaside and Best Vegan Ice Cream in Izola


I used to make Random Monthly Pictures posts, where I would share a couple of pictures I took throughout the month, but I completely forgot about that. On the other side you can see some photos I take on my Instagram. I thought I would do a post about my vacation, something like a photo diary and include a couple of photos here. I like taking pictures, but I still don't have a proper camera and my phone isn't the best in that field, so the pictures aren't the best quality.

Annemarie Börlind Products

Annemarie Börlind Products | Lana Talks

Today I'm going to talk about two products that I got at this year's SummerMBeauty event. They are from Annemarie Börlind, I got a small mascara and a loose powder with hyaluronic acid. I don't think I have ever heard about this brand, but just last time, when I had time and I was in Müller I saw it, so I'm not sure if it's new in Slovenia or I have only just seen it. Annemarie Börlind is a world-famous natural beauty brand in Germany. She is committed to search for the cleanest organic natural resources in the world for ingredients.

Catrice Brown Collection Nail Lacquer 04 Unmistakable Style

Catrice Brown Collection Nail Lacquer 04 Unmistakable Style

This is the first product that I bought from the new Catrice Autumn/Winter Update. On my wishlist I had two other shades, but in the store this one seemed the prettiest. There weren't all the new products in the store yet, the ones that were didn't impress me much, except for the blush sticks, but they didn't have the shade I wanted anymore.

Blogger Mail: Oriflame Goodies

Blogger Mail: Oriflame

Oriflame offered me a chance to try some of their products and of course, I said yes. I already own a few of their products which I love and use regularly, like the Tender Care Protecting Balm and the Eyeshadow Stick, I also loved the Swedish Spa Nourishing Body Butter. For this time a choose two cream sticks, a blush and a brush. Some products impressed me and some not so much.

Catrice Soleil D'été LE

Catrice Soleil D'été LE Metalip Colour and a Metal Eyelight

I'm a bit late with this review, I already saw Catrice Soleil D'été LE products in stores like a week ago, but they should be available till mid of September. This collection is all about metallic looks and bronzing makeup. I got two products to test out: Metalip Colour and a Metal Eyelight. I'm actually eyeing that gorgeous bronzer, as well as the serum bronzer because I heard bronzers from Catrice's LEs are quite nice.

Physicians Formula Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Blush in Rose

Physicians Formula Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Blush in Rose

Last year I put this blush on my Birthday Wishlist, but I never bought it, but Mateja recently kindly sent it to me because she had two. Another thank you Mateja :D The Physicians Formula Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Blush (wow that's a long name) comes in a round plastic and metallic pink looking packaging. It has a sturdy and clear lid, so you can see the pretty heart design on the actual blush. You have to push the button so you can open it and you don't have to worry it will just open in your makeup bag.

My Blog Is Turning 3! + Giveaway


My blog is turning three in August! Like I said before, I don't have an exact date, because I did erase some of the posts a long time ago, so I decided to celebrate just the month. Last year it was just: "Oh I have been blogging for two years", but this year it feels different, I feel like I have been blogging for much longer. I really fell in love with blogging, with planning, taking pictures and writing about products, I don't even know how my day would be without it. I have been trying to blog more frequently recently, but I'm not there yet, it takes so much time and effort, congrats to you who do it.

L.O.V Fatalmuse Liquid Matte Lipstick 710 Secret Obsession

L.O.V Cosmetics Fatalmuse Liquid Matte Lipstick 710 Secret Obsession - Lana Talks

I have been waiting for a perfect liquid matte lipstick and I can say I finally found it. I was very impressed when I first tried this liquid lipstick from L.O.V, called Fatalmuse, in shade 710 Secret Obsession. If you don't know, L.O.V is fairly new in Slovenia, it's a sister brand to Essence and Catrice and this is my first makeup product I tried from them (if you don't count the brushes) and they actually convinced me to try some more in the future.

Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip Dopey
A while back Colourpop finally had free international shipping and of course, I had to order something. Firstly, I wanted to get some of the satin lips, but I changed my mind and ordered lippie stix. If you purchased above 20$, you got a free mini satin lip. I think there were three shades you can choose from, I chose a shade called Dopey, which is a warm dark mauve colour.

Essence Cubanita TE

Essence Cubanita Trend Edition

Today I'm going to talk about the new Cubanita TE by Essence, which is already in stores. I really like this trend edition. Lately, I wasn't really excited about their collections, but this one immediately cought my eye. Both, highlighter and the banana powder were on my wishlist. I heard great things about the highlighter and I also wanted to try the banana powder and see if it really is so good.

Essence Hip Girls Wear Blue Jeans TE Nail Polish 04 Don't Be Shy


I'm a bit late with this review, I did see this collection in Müller and DM always has old collections, so you can still get it if you want it. I made a preview of the whole Hip Girls Wear Blue Jeans TE from Essence here and I really wanted this nail polish. I saw a stand when I was in Austria and I had to get it. The nail polish is called 04 Don't Be Shy and it costs around 2€.

Aliexpress Wishlist: Stationary Edition

I love browsing through Aliexpress or e-Bay. For the last half a year I actually like Aliexpress more, it is easier to see what you are looking for and you also have other costumers reviews, I think e-Bay has this now too, but I still like Aliexpress better. I always make wishlists on my account, so I thought why wouldn't I post one on my blog, I decided for it to be stationery themed and here it's what I picked:

Avon True Colour Perfectly Matte Lipsticks

Avon True Colour Perfectly Matte Lipsticks Rouged Perfection, Rose Awakening and Pink Passion

I feel like every Slovenian blogger has already talked about the well-known matte lipsticks from Avon. They have added three new shades to the True Colour Perfectly Matte range, they are called Rouged Perfection, Rose Awakening and Pink Passion. All three of them have a rosy pink undertone, I just wish they would be more nude, because there are not really many nude shades in the range.

New Catrice Autumn/Winter 2017 Wishlist

Summer just started and there is already a preview of the new products from Catrice for Autumn/Winter 2017 out. I decided to make a wishlist post, what I will check out when they come to the stores. You can see the whole list of new products here. And here you can see which products are leaving the stores. They discontinued some really good products, including one of my favourite mascaras. I will also try to get some blushes on the sales, Rose Royce has been on my wishlist forever.

Makeup Decluter Part 2

Makeup Decluter Part 2

Today I have another Makeup Declutter post. I got rid of some more things. I had time and I went through all my makeup and other cosmetics, I also reorganised my entire room, because I was running out of space. I really enjoy reading this kind of posts and watching declutter videos on Youtube, so I thought I would make a part 2 on my blog.

New In #20

Finally, I can say I'm back to blogging. I really missed it, I can't believe I only have one post in June so far. First I wanted to share with you all the products I bought and all of the ones I was sent. I didn't have a New In post on my blog for two months, so you can imagine there would be quite a lot of stuff. It would also take me a long time to take the photos and write the post, so I decided to split it and do one part now and the second one in the upcoming days.

Avon Little Sequin Dress Eau De Parfum

I'm not very good at explaining scents, but I will try, because I think this fragrance deserves its own blog post. Little Sequin Dress it's an eau de parfum and comes in a gorgeous square glass bottle with a sequin design at the back. It contains 50ml and it normally costs 26€. It is a new fragrance by Avon and it was made by Caroline Sabas. Avon already has a series of this fragrances, there are Little Lace Dress, Little Red Dress, Little Black Dress...

Balea Kamille Hand & Nagel Balsam
I forgot how much I loved this cream. I think I repurchased it a couple of times, but then I forgot about it. I had this sample size from my Balea Advent Calendar, so I started using it again. It has a bit thicker consistency than the Mirati, but it is still lightweight and sinks into the skin fast. The chamomile scent is quite strong, but still lovely.

There will be 45 new shades, which is not the best for my wallet. These are supposed to have a shiny finish and last up to seven days.

Best Products for Dry Skin

Best Products for Dry Skin (4 Kids and Us, Alpstories, Melvita, Oriflame)

When I posted October Favourites, I said I will do this type of posts more often, but I didn't. There were only 2016 Favourites of makeup and other products. I wanted to do them, but I don't really switch my products so often, especially in winter, if I find something that my dry skin likes, I mostly stick to it. First, I intended to make an April skincare favourites post, but then I realised I have been using these products for this whole year (except Melvita) and I love them for my skin, so I decided to name the post Best Products for Dry Skin.

H&M Makeup Sponge
Aren't these two so cute? I saw some Slovenian bloggers talk about these H&M sponges on Instagram, so I had to get one. First I got only one, so I could try it. I liked it so much that I already bought another one. They have two of three different designs, so I will get those too as a backup if they suddenly stop selling them. I used to love my Ebelin sponge, but that one I had to throw away. The Ebelin one actually feels quite hard compared to the H&M one. The H&M one feels so soft even when it's dry, when it's wet it's even softer. It also feels more durable.

Recently I bought new makeup storage drawers and I reorganised my makeup. Before I had almost all my makeup in small 3 drawers plastic organisers and I didn't realise how much old makeup I have. I decided to throw everything old and everything that I don't use away. I don't have a big makeup collection, but still I want to have products that I actually use, I don't like hoarding.

Today I'm going to talk about an amazing Nectar de Miels Ultra Nourishing Comforting Balm by Melvita. The first thing that I have to mention about this cream is the packaging, I love it. Simple round glass bottle with a peach coloured lid and I love the little hexagons on the sides. In it you get 50ml of product and it costs 38,60€.

Essence Colour Boost High Pigment Nail Paint 01 Instant Friendship

I already talked about one nail polish from this new Colour Boost line by Essence. At the start, when the new collection came I wanted to buy this pale pink nail polish, but I didn't because I thought it would be the same formula as by other pastels (I completely overlooked the one-coat and go writing). But then I saw it on Instagram and everyone loved the formula, so I decided to get it and I'm so glad I did. It's called 01 Instant Friendship.

I Heart Makeup Naked Chocolate Eyeshadow Palette


I had this I Heart Makeup Naked Chocolate palette on my wishlist since it came out. I would probably order it sooner, but I couldn't get it on Licila.si, because it was sold out for so long. I was also considering buying the peach one, or the normal chocolate one from this brand, but I didn't because the white one was the one I really wanted, the shades are just up my alley and I knew I would use them all.

In this post I included decor from H&M, Ikea, Jysk and Primark. I included all the links, if you click on the name, it will take you to the website.

Essence Camouflage Full Coverage Concealer (Comparison to Catrice Liquid Camouflage High Coverage Concealer)


As soon as I saw that Essence is releasing a new concealer in the spring/summer update, that looks very similar to the well-known Catrice Liquid Camouflage High Coverage concealer, I know I had to get it. I've had the Catrice one for a couple of months now, I almost used it up completely and I love it. Now that I have also tried the Essence one, I can write a comparison post. I have the shade 020 Light Beige by Catrice and 10 Nude by Essence (the darkest ones). If you compare both concealers on the swatches bellow, you can see, that Catrice is yellow toned and that Essence is more neutral.

I had these new Out of Space Stories nail polishes from Essence on my wishlist, but when I saw some swatches on Instagram, only the black one caught my eye. It looks very pretty and of course, I had to buy it. The Ouf of Space Stories Nail Polish comes in a glass square bottle, which contains 9ml of the product. I chose the shade 07, called 1000 Light Years Away.

Golden Rose Wow! Nail Colour 67

Golden Rose Wow! Nail Colour 67

I have heard so many good things about Golden Rose brand, mostly about their liquid lipstick, so I decided to get one of their Wow! nail polishes as part of my Licila.si order.
The Wow! nail polish comes in a small round bottle, which contains 6 ml of product and I think it costs 1€. The brush is small, narrow and straight cut. It is a bit too small, I didn't like it, it was hard to apply the polish evenly on the nails.

4 Kids And Us Rejuvenating Day Cream

For today I prepared a review on 4 Kids and Us Rejuvenating Day Cream. The brand was created by two parents whose children had skin problems, so they decided to make their own natural cosmetics. All 4 Kids and Us products are handmade in Slovenia, they are not tested on animals and all the ingredients are naturalA lot of Slovenian bloggers already talked about the brand and I haven't read one bad thing about it. I got some products last year on SummerMBeauty blogger event, I already talked about the anti-cellulite cream (I put it in my summer favourites). The day cream I started using this year, because I heard so many positive reviews. At first, it didn't really impress me, but now I love it.

I just recently bought this product, I have been using it a lot and I really like it, so I decided to do a review, since Essence is discontinuing it. This review will probably be a little shorter, because I have three exams in the next three days, but I still wanted to write it now, if maybe someone wants to try it before it's gone. Luckily, I already had the pictures, so I only needed to write it.

2016 Favourites (Hair, Skincare, Nails)

Avon Nutra Effects Miracle Glow Lightweight Facial Oil

Avon Nutra Effects Miracle Glow Lightweight Facial Oil
I put it in my October favourites and I still love it. It helps my skin so much, the creams that I use at night aren't enough in this winter time, my skin has become very dry. I apply it on my face every night before I go to sleep. It sinks in quickly and leaves my skin feeling amazing. I will probably buy a backup since I am planning on ordering some Avon products and this oil it's on sale right now. I only have one problem with it, it's leaking on the top and sometimes it's hard to open it.

11. januar 2017

2016 Favourites (Makeup)


Essence Pure Nude Make-Up
I have been using two foundations in the past year. One of them is the Catrice Nude Illusion, which is great, but I feel I need more time when applying it, because it can look a bit patchy when I have dry skin. Essence Pure Nude Make Up is my go-to, I use it every morning before school. I like that is light coverage, so it just evens out my skin a little and it's practically invisible on the skin. Review here.

Catrice Liquid Camouflage High Coverage Concealer
I love this concealer. Like I said before, my undereye area gets so dark sometimes, but this helps a lot, it covers almost everything. Full review here.
