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.

New In #23 Malinca Clay Mask

Malinca Clay Mask*
Malinca sent me two clay masks, one for me to test and one I'm going to give away (na mojem Instagramu že poteka nagradna igra). I already used up a sample pot that I got at a blogger event and I can say I love it, I'm happy that I got a big backup. I will do a whole post about this mask.

New In #23 Liquid Lipsticks

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet 17 Cool Brown
I finally gave in and I got a Bourjois liquid lipstick, well my boyfriend bought it for me. He was determined that he will buy me something, just because he got his pay and his words were "so you will have something to write about on your blog". He is such a sweetheart. I wanted one of these for so long, everybody talked about them, so of course, they were on my WL. I can say that I love it, but with this shade, you have to really take care of your lips, before you wear it. I am already preparing a post about it. 

Catrice Ultra Matt Liquid Lip Powder
I don't think I have ever bought a matte liquid lipstick from Essence or Catrice, mostly because from what I heard they were never really matte, like they would say on the packaging. I saw someone on Instagram write that these new Catrice ones are awesome, so I tried them in Müller and I had to have one. I would buy more, but other shades just weren't for me. This one dries in under a minute, maybe even under half a minute and they last very long. If I compare it to Bourjoius - Bourjois feels a bit more velvety and smooth on the lips and of course, it's more expensive.

Catrice Matt to Cheek Blush Stick 010 Brownie & Clyde
This was high on my WL and I finally got it. I'm not sure if it's a perfect shade for my bronzed skin now, it just blends into my skin and it isn't really visible, so it will probably be better for the winter time when my skin will be lighter, but I need to test it out better.

New In #23 Essence New Autumn/Winter

Essence Time to Wake Up Face Sheet Mask
I haven't tried a lot of sheet masks, but I love Balea Aqua Tuchmaske, I always have a couple at home. This one from Essence is more expensive than Balea, it's 1,59€. The first thing that I noticed was the scent, it's very strong, I didn't like it, but after a couple of minutes, I could barely smell it. The sheet is a nice size comparing to other sheet masks I have tried, it isn't too big and it's very moist. It has a nice cooling effect. I tried using it in the morning like it is supposed to be used, even though I use face masks at night. It's supposed to wake you up, but who has time to do this in the morning? And if I had time, I'm too lazy to do this right when I wake up. The effect was nice, the skin really felt cooled down and refreshed. What was left on the skin felt a bit sticky and it slowly sank in. It is moisturizing enough, I didn't need anything to put over it and my skin didn't feel dry throughout the day, but I'm not sure if it would be enough for the colder months when my skin is drier. It's nice, but I still think Balea's is better, more nourishing and better smelling, just not as cooling as this one.

New In #23 Essence Super Beauty Sponge

Essence Super Beauty Sponge
I was in Müller when they were just putting new Essence stuff on the shelves, they were not many there, but I grabbed this sponge. It's not the softest sponge I own, but I really like the straight cut part at the top, it blends well, but I have a feeling it absorbs quite a lot of product. It also has a cut bottom end, so it stands on the table without tipping over.

New In #23 Oriflame Feet Up

Oriflame Feet Up Foot Spray With Strawberry and Rhubarb LE*
This is supposed to be for lightly cooling the feet and also giving them a fresh scent. It has a scent that I sometimes adore, but sometimes not so much. It reminds me of something, but I can't figure out what. I haven't really tested this one yet.

Oriflame Feet Up Foot Cream With Strawberry and Rhubarb LE*
 This foot cream has the same scent, but I feel it's a bit less sweet and stronger, I can smell it for hours. The cream sinks into the skin quite quickly, but it leaves a film. I use it at night and then I put my socks on and I can't really feel it. In the morning I wake up with softer feet. I like the design of both of these Feet Up products, minty green, with some red and silver foil details.

Oriflame The One Moisture Gel*
When I first tried it, I wasn't impressed, the scent is a bit weird, it's quite strong, but it goes away quickly. It has a light and almost like a slimy consistency. I like the brush, I apply the gel directly to the cuticles and all over my nails with it, leave it for a couple of minutes and then I rub it into the skin. I was so surprised how well this nourished my cuticles, I didn't expect this from the light consistency it has. Big thumbs up!

New In #23 Yanumi 100% Organic Avocado Fruit Oil

Yanumi 100% Organic Avocado Fruit Oil*
I got a chance to test this avocado oil and since I have been loving oils more and more, I said yes. The only thing I can say right now is, that it has such a strong scent, it will take me a while to get used to it, so a review will be a bit late.

New In #23 Avon

Avon Clear Skin Pore & Shine Control Black Mineral Mask*
This mask contains an oil absorbing blend of mineral clays that attracts and removes pore-clogging oil like a magnetIt's not one of that popular peel of masks. You are supposed to apply it to your skin, leave till it gets light gray and then rinse it off with water. I already tried it once and I liked it. Obviously, it's black and it has a thicker, a bit sticky texture and it didn't irritate my skin. I can't really say more right now.

Avon Mark Big & Style Volume Mascara*
I already own one of these Mark mascaras (Big & Daring) and I haven't really tested it out yet. I also have some other mascaras opened so I won't open this one for now.

Avon Konjac Sponge*
I love my Ebelin konjac sponge, I use it once, maybe twice a week, usually before I put a face mask on. I haven't used this one yet, but I will let you know how I like it.

Avon Mark Perfect Brown Creme Gel Pot*
I don't normally use anything for my brows, I'm not sure why, maybe I'm just afraid everything will smudge or that I wouldn't even know to do it right or maybe I don't want to spend more time in front of the mirror in the morning. I did test it once and I can say it's very pigmented.

New In #23 Catrice ICONails and Brown Collection

Catrice ICONails Gel Lacquer 09 Vintagged Pink
Catrice Brown Collection Nail Lacquer 04 Unmistakable Style
These two shades were gorgeous, so first I got the new Brown Collection nail lacquer from Catrice, which will be perfect for autumn. Then, when I was in DM I spotted the muted pink polish from the ICONails line that I love. I recently bought a new powdery pink autumnal coat, so I thought this would go nicely with it.

I have also bought some Balea products, but I decided to do a separate post for those because there are some new stuff and limited editions. Thank you for reading!

*Products were sent to me


  1. Sem jaz tudi šla po Catrice rdečilo - I caved in :D. Res sem si želela neko rdečilo v stiku za na morje in zdaj, ko imam malo temnejšo polt mi dejansko paše. Za zimo bo pa bolj kot ne nek topel bronzer. :)

    Bourjois ima toliko teh novih bolj nude odtenkov in vsi so mi po svoje všeč. Mi pa formula ne odgovarja preveč. Malo presuho za moje ustnice.

    Avon Mark Gel za obrvi mi je po prvem vtisu precej všeč. Nisem pričakovala tako dobre pigmentacije.

    Se že veselim ocen ;)

    1. Jaz pa se ne morem odločit, če mi je všeč ali ne. Barva je čudovita, ampak očitno sem pretemna zdaj, ker se skorajda ne opazi, pride lepo sicer, ampak ga rabim kar nekaj, da se vidi :/

      Meni pa je formula zaenkrat všeč, čeprav imam tudi vedno s tem težave :)
