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.

New In #20 L.O.V. Brushes (Perfectional Duo Contouring Brush, Blurredesire Smudger Brush, Liplure Lip Brush)

L.O.V Eau de Parfum*
I like the design, it's simple and clean. The scent is quite fresh and I would describe it as gentle daytime scent. It doesn't last long on the skin, a couple of hours and then it's gone.

L.O.V. Brushes*
I was so excited when I got these brushes in the mail, I really need more brushes. I got one face brush, which is for contouring and two smaller brushes, one for lips and one for smudging the eyeshadow.

L.O.V Perfectional Duo Contouring Brush
I don't really use the flat side for anything. It is supposed to be for applying the contour before you blend it, it does work, but most of the times I just apply it with the other side and blend it all together, it's quicker. The other side also works great with applying a blush, I love using it with Avon's pearls. I find it perfect for blending.

L.O.V Blurredesire Smudger Brush
With this one you can smudge the eyeliner, it should work great when doing a smokey eye look. I tried it and it really does, you apply the eyeshadow and it blends well, it is a bit weird since I normally use big fluffy brushes for blending, but it does the job. My favourite way to use it it's for applying a darker brown shade just under my eyes, in the outer corners, to smoke it out a bit, to make my eyes look a bit bigger and fuller.

L.O.V  Liplure Lip Brush
If I'm honest, I don't think I have ever had or used a lip brush. This one is soft, but also dense, so it's very precise. I didn't expect much, but it impressed me. I used it with my Avon True Colour Perfectly Matte Lipsticks, which normally apply a bit weird, not strikey or anything, but they can look a bit patchy at first if you have dry lips. But when I apply them with this brush everything looks more even, like the lipstick blended more into my lips. Also, with the brush, you don't get as much pigmentating as you would if you were putting lipstick directly on your lips.

New In #20 Essence Keep it Perfect! Make-up Fixing Spray

Essence Keep it Perfect! Make-up Fixing Spray
I have been using this product for some time now, I forgot to include it in my last New In post, so I thought I would include it here. I'm still not sure what to think about it. I use it on top of my makeup so it takes away that powdery mask look and it works great for that. I have seen so many things about the spray cap, some love it and some hate it, so I guess it's what you get. I don't like mine, it's not fine enough for me and I feel it sprays too much at once. In terms of fixing makeup to stay longer and didn't see anything really, but I did use it every time on these hot days, maybe I should try not to use it and see how it works then.

New In #20 Catrice ProvoCATRICE LE Scented Powder

Catrice ProvoCATRICE LE Scented Powder*
I have a whole review here. It is great to use as a body highlighter because it gives you that nice healthy glow.

New In #20 Avon

Avon True Colour Perfectly Matte Lipsticks in Rouged Perfection, Pink Passion and Rose Awakening*
Till I got these, I think I only had one Avon's matte lipstick and it was in a red shade, so I didn't wear it much. Now I got some other shades, these three are new in their collection of matte lipsticks. My favourite is Rouged Perfection, Pink Passion is a bit too light for my skin tone. I am planning to do a whole review on these.

Avon Glow Bronzing Pearls in Radiant Glow*
I absolutely adore these glow pearls by Avon. My favourite is the smell, I can't describe it, but they have an amazing scent. Sometimes I just open the packaging so I can smell them :'). The ones I got last year I mostly use as a highlighter, but these ones could be for bronzing and for cheeks as a blush or a blush topper.

New In #20 Essence

Essence I Love Extreme Volume Mascara Waterproof
I finally bought another one for the summer time. I can really rely on it in the hottest weather situations. Review here.

Essence Hip Girls Wear Blue Jeans Nail Polish in 04 Don't Be Shy!
I saw these in a preview, then I saw it when I was in DM in Austria and I loved the shade. I didn't notice that it's a soft matte finish, but it doesn't really bother me.

New In #20 Essence

Essence Lash & Brow Gel Mascara
If I'm not mistaken, Mateja talked about this product and she said that she uses it on the fine baby hair to tame them. Since I bought it, I also noticed this trick in Barbara Sofie's youtube video. Let me tell you, I'm so happy I bought it, I had it on my WL for a long time, but I always forgot to buy it. It's quite wet when you pull the wand out of the packaging, so I wipe a bit off. Then I lightly use it on my fine hair on top of my head and it works so well. They stay like that for the entire day, even on the second day I don't really have to retouch anything. It's one of the best products I bought recently.

Essence Eyebrow Tweezer
I heard good things about these tweezers, but I don't like them at all. They are sharp, so they don't really pull the hair out, they just rip the hair.

New In #20 Vichy

Vichy Quenching Mineral Mask, Double Glow Mask, Pore Purifying Mask*
Vichy sent me some masks, I haven't tried them yet, but I will let you know what I think about them once I have tried them.

New In #20 Balea Masks

Balea Aqua Tuchmaske
Balea Milch & Honig Maske
Two of my favourite Balea masks. I bought three of the Aqua version, because I just love it, especially for summer days, because it's a bit cooling and nourishing too. The Milch & Honig mask is also very nice, I feel that my skin loves it, it's so soft after I use it.

New In #20 Balea

Balea Aqua Feuchtigkeits Serum
Balea Erfrischender Washgel
My two favourites. I repurchased them numerous times. 

New In #20 Balea Wasserspray Cocos

Balea Wasser Spray Cocos
Some time ago this was all over Instagram, but in Slovenia we didn't get it up until recently. I love the classic version. They were two new versions at the start, Cocos and Limette & Basilikum, but now they added some more I think. I really like this Cocos one, it's not a strong scent at all, it's light, it doesn't last for a long time. One thing that I did notice is, that it's a bit "milky" when you spray it on the skin, the classic one it's just like water.

Balea Dusch Peeling Sommerliebe
I needed a new peeling and again, this was all over Instagram. I think it will be perfect for summer days. It smells amazing, just like watermelons. It's a classic Balea peeling, so it's not too harsh on the skin, but it still does something.

New In #20 Sundance Selbst Braunungs Tonic Tuch

Sun Dance Selbst Bräunungs Tuch
I'm not sure why I bought the cloths, because I have enough of self-tanning products right now, I guess I was excited to finally find them in the store, because I loved these last year

Sun Dance Selbst Bräunungs Tonic
I usually never put self tanning things on my face, so I got a tonic. I like it, it has a nice smell and it really gradually gives you tan. I mostly use it just once and it gives me that natural bronzy look, but I haven't tried it a few days in a row.

New In #20 Avon

Avon Little Sequin Dress Eau de Parfum*
A nice spring to summer fragrance, maybe more for spring. Review here.

Avon True Colour BB 7-in-1 Nail Enamel Restoring Beige*
I am impressed by this. I will do a post with swatches, but I can say I really like the shade, the best nude I have had in my collection so far.

New In #20 Catrice Iconails

Catrice ICONails Gel Lacquer 05 It's All About Red
Catrice ICONails Gel Lacquer 14 Mint Map*
A full review with swatches here.

Thank you for reading!


  1. Essence Lash & Brow Gel maskara je res najs za frizz :), čeprav od John Friede je bil še boljši, pa so ga nehali prodajat.
    Ta dva Catrice laka sta mi še vedno tako všeč :) Ampak se nikoli ne ustavim pred tem delom stojala pri Catrice.
    To Balea navadno vodo sem kupila davnih 10 let nazaj in mislim, da sem jo šele predlani porabila. Enostavno nisem imela nič z njo počet, sploh ker mi poleti ni nikoli vroče in za cakey makeup vzamem pa setting spreje. Tele nove verzije me v bistvu niti ne ganejo.

    1. Ta maskara je mislim da moja najljubša stvar, ki sem jo kupila v zadnjem času :D
      To Catrice linijo ti priporočam, pigmentiranost je super, pa še dolgo zdržijo. :)
      Jaz pa zdaj ko je vroče uporabljam to vodo skorajda vsakodnevno, meni je všeč za osvežitev.
