Avon True Supreme Nourishing Lipsticks

Avon True Colour Supreme Nourishing Lipsticks Crimson Dream and Smooth Mocha

I had this post prepared for almost a year now, but I didn't like the pictures, but now I decided to still post it, because I saw these are still available and I love the formula. I really like all Avon's lipsticks, their matte lipsticks are fantastic and these ones amazed me just as well.

Malinca Clay Mask

Malinca Clay Mask

Malinca is a Slovenian online store that sells a lot of healthy products, if I can say so. They have some healthy food, as well as some natural cosmetics, kitchen tools and accessories, books and even jewellery. Their website is very well made in terms of the information you get on every product, if the product is vegan, gluten free, lactose free, how the product is made and how to use it. I did try some of their products before, but at a blogger event I got a sample pot of a clay mask from Malinca and I started to use it right away.  Malinca then kindly sent me one to test. I already used up the sample one, so I'm happy I got a big packaging.

e-Bay and Aliexpress Bargains (Stationery)

e-Bay and Aliexpress Bargains (Stationery)

I finally got around to do e-Bay bargains, I literally wanted to do it for more than a year. I took the pictures a lot of times, but they never turned out how I wanted, but in the end, I still decided to post them. Since a lot of the stuff is stationery themed, I wanted to do a post dedicated to them. All of these products are pretty old and all, except one, are still from e-Bay, even though I prefer Aliexpress now. But I needed to show these cute sticky notes, I was obsessed with them. I found some links on e-Bay, but some I didn't, so I got you links to them on Aliexpress, where they are actually cheaper than what I paid for them. I hope I will soon have time to share some other Aliexpress finds.

New In #24: Balea Summer Edition

New In #24: Balea Summer Edition - Lana Talks

This time I will be talking about some summer products from Balea. I know Summer is already over, I wanted to post this sooner but I wanted to test all of the products well, especially the shampoo and conditioner. I wanted to have this post up quickly now when I have tested them, so you can still get some products if you like them (hand cream is limited edition, shaving cream and the shower gel are only accessible in summer, for the shampoo and the conditioner I'm pretty sure they are permanent), so this will be more of a quick review of all five products.

New Essence Autumn/Winter 2017 Products

New Essence Autumn/Winter 2017 Products - Lana Talks

Not long ago I got an awesome package from Dominur, which represents brands like Essence, Catrice and L.O.V in Slovenia. I already reviewed two matte liquid lipsticks from the Coast'n'Chill LE from Essence. Today I will review three of the new Autumn/Winter 2017 products by Essence, which are the Superlast Eyeliner, Fresh & Fit Awake Primer and an Instant Volume Boost Mascara. I have to say I like all of them.

Avon True Colour BB 7-in-1 Nail Enamel Restoring Beige

Avon True Colour BB 7-in-1 Nail Enamel Restoring Beige

This Avon True Colour Nail Polish is from their BB 7-in-1 line and it is called Restoring Beige. It comes in a classic Avon nail polish glass bottle. I actually really like this design, it looks elegant and you can store it better than Essence for example. You get 10ml for 5,90, but it's usually on sale.

Balea Born to be Lazy LE

Balea Born to be Lazy LE - Lana Talks

We finally got Born to be Lazy products from Balea in our DMs. I don't usually get all excited about Balea products, I didn't even buy that unicorn shower gel everyone talked about a couple of months ago. I'm not sure what it is about this line, I really liked the cute packaging, maybe because I saw it all over Instagram. I mainly wanted the sheet mask and the body lotion, but of course, I bought more. I did see the lip balm also, but I decided not to buy it because I have a lot of them at home that I want to use up. The whole line smells very sweet, to me not all products smell the same, some are a lot sweeter than others. People that are not keen on sweet scents, probably won't like them. The scent reminds me a lot on their older collections, most on the Rummelplatz LE. I also need to mention that all of these products are vegan.

Essence Coast'n'Chill TE and Catrice Blessing Browns LE Matte Liquid Lipsticks

Essence Coast'n'Chill TE and Catrice Blessing Browns LE Matte Liquid Lipsticks

Today I have even more liquid lipstick reviews, I have just been loving them lately. Two are from the Essence's new Coast'n'Chill trend edition and one from the Catrice's Blessing Browns limited edition, the last one looks really similar to the Liquid Lip Powders from Catrice, which I really like, that's I mainly why got it. I wanted one darker autumnal shade, but it didn't impress me so much as that one. I have seen both of the collections in Müller already, so if you like the lipsticks, be quick.

Catrice Matt to Cheek Blush Stick and Ultra Matt Lip Powder

Catrice Matt to Cheek Blush Stick and Ultra Matt Lip Powder - Lana Talks

Today I'm going to write about two products that are new by Catrice. They came out as part of the autumn/winter update. I have been loving blush sticks lately and this brown one looked like such a nice autumnal shade, I actually had it on my wishlist too. But I didn't have the liquid lipstick on the WL, because I didn't trust that they would really be matte, but when I tried one in the store it impressed me big time.

Catrice ICONails Gel Lacquer 09 Vintagged Pink

Catrice ICONails Gel Lacquer 09 Vintagged Pink

Yes, I bought another one, I just couldn't resist this shade. I already have a review on these new Catrice ICONails polishes, so I won't be too long in this post. This time I picked up a shade called 09 Vintagged Pink. I was debating between this one and Rosewood Hills (you can see swatches on Petra's blog), but then I decided I already have a very similar shade to Rosewood Hills in my collection and I picked up Vintagged Pink.

My Birthday Wishlist 2017

I can't believe another year has passed, I will be 21 years old on 13th of September. I know I'm still young, but I feel old. I was never one of those children that wanted to grow up fast. Anyway, let's go to the post. I put together a semi-big birthday wishlist. That's not at all what I expect to get from my friends or family (many don't even know I have a blog, or don't read it), but it's a wishlist for me, what I wish for in the next year, what I will maybe treat myself to. If you are interested, here is last year's version of the wishlist.

Essence Volume Stylist 18h Lash Extension Mascara

I got Essence Volume Stylist 18h Lash Extension Mascara a few months ago at a blogger event. First, I didn't really pay much attention to it, because the packaging didn't impress me, it looks quite childish. I didn't even see any reviews of it. One day I decided to test it and I'm glad I did, because it's awesome. Essence is really making a great job with their mascaras lately. I don't think I have been disappointed in the last two years at any of their mascaras and I absolutely love the I Love Extreme Waterproof mascara.

New In #23 Melvita L'Argan Bio Velvet Hand Cream

Melvita L'Argan Bio Velvet Hand Cream*
Melvita surprised me with a lovely package for my third blog anniversary. I didn't expect this at all. They sent me a hand cream with a cute note. First, I love the packaging, white with rose gold foil writing. The scent is quite strong and oriental, but I'm not sure how to properly describe it. It stays on the skin for a while. The consistency is quite lightweight and sinks into the skin fast.

Aliexpress Wishlist #2

I was browsing through Aliexpress again and I found some cool stuff. I prepared this post a while back, I already ordered and actually got those pipette bottles on the second picture. They are perfect, they came perfectly wrapped, one is 10ml and one 30ml. The pipette on both works fine and they don't leak. I will soon do another wishlist, but I'm already doing a post about some stuff that I already bought and tried.

Paese Nail Polish 102

Paese Nail Polish 102

Slovenian bloggers got a couple of products from Paese at this years SummerMBeauty event in Maribor. Bloggers quicky started to sing praises about the nail polish we got, I have seen some really good things about this being the best white nail polish they have tried. I really like some of their other products, but I am not so impressed by this polish. I'm talking about Paese nail polish in shade 102.

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 | 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

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.

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 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.

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.

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 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 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.

I will also try to get some blushes on the sales, Rose Royce has been on my wishlist forever.

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.

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.

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.

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.
