FOTD: Spring Green

Lately, I've been testing a lot of new products. The best way to test them all at once is to do a makeup look with them. When my girl is sleeping I have enough time to do something more than just winged eyeliner on eyes. Some time ago I got new Freedom Makeup Pro Artist Pad Extreme Vice palette and so far I'm quite satisfied with eyeshadows. They do dust a bit but are nicely pigmented and blend very well. 


Freedom palette contains shimmery and matte eyeshadows, but there are more first ones. On the upper lid, I decided for more neutral but shimmery shades, while I went with green on the lower lid and the inner corner. The sun is up, spring is here and it's time to wear some bright and fun makeup. The eyeliner is new Essence The Cushion eyeliner, which impressed me a lot. It's a true black eyeliner, and I guess it's waterproof because once it sets it doesn't move. 
Did you notice I wear a green lipstick? Well, of course, you did. New Essence lipstick in shade No To Mainstream is amazing. I'm completely in love with this matte green but I bought it just to wear it in the house because people already look me strange when I wear my "in you face" eye makeup. I don't even imagine how they would look me if I'd wear green lipstick on my lips. Okay, I do imagine, haha. Somebody escaped from the circus. :P

February Top 5

Sredina marca je že tu, meni pa še ni uspelo objaviti februarskih lepotnih favoritov. Zadnjih nekaj tednov je bilo prav norih in se mi žal ni uspelo posvetiti lepotnemu blogu, upam pa, da bom imela odslej vsaj enkrat na teden čas, da z vami delim novosti, favorite in ocene izdelkov, ki jih testiram. V zadnjem času sem preizkusila kar nekaj izdelkov, ki so me presenetili s svojo kvaliteto in najljubših pet prejšnjega meseca je našlo pot v to objavo. :)



BeYu Cosmetics Mr. Gel nadlak
Gre za nadlak, ki hitro posuši barvni lak in mu da visok sijaj. Nad njegovo ne preveč gosto formulo, ki lepo polzi po nohtu, sem navdušena, nad dejstvom, da je hitrosušeč, pa še bolj, saj mi, odkar je hčerka zrasla, primanjkuje časa za nohte in če si jih lakiram zvečer pred spanjem, tak nadlak pride zelo prav, da se potem na nohtih ne poznajo sledovi rjuh.

Add Actives C20 Tetraforce Activator
Serum, za katerega sem najprej mislila, da mi ne bo odgovarjal, saj se mi je po prvi uporabi naredila cela štala na obrazu, ampak očitno ga nisem uporabila v kombinaciji s pravo kremo ali pa so bili krivi le hormoni, me je sedaj popolnoma navdušil. Gre za serum z vitaminom C, ki je zapakiran v temno stekleno stekleničko s kapalko, ki omogoča lahko doziranje. Zagotovo sledi podrobnejša ocena, ker si jo ta izdelek zasluži, a za sedaj naj povem, da me je navdušil, ker izenači ten, vidno izravna kožo, saj se bori proti gubicam (kar se je pri meni najbolj poznalo na koži med obrvmi) in jo vlaži. Moja koža še nikoli ni bila lepša. Sicer je cena ufff, preprevisoka za moj žep, ampak izdelek je res odličen.

Herbio obnovitvena krema
Letošnja zima ni bila najbolj prijazna do moje kože. Sicer ne vem, če so bili krivi hormoni (moje telo se je po porodu končno spet začelo spravljati v red), oster in mrzel zrak zunaj ali suh zrak noter, ampak spet so se začele pojavljati luskice in nekaj časa sem imela na licih prav hudo suho kožo, ki mi jo je pomagala rešiti Herbio obnovitvena krema. Ko sem kožo končno spravila v red, pa sem jo začela uporabljati v kombinaciji z Add Actives serumom in skupaj sta se izkazala za res odlično kombinacijo za mojo kožo.

Alpstories Cleansing Gel 
Ko mi je mojega ljubega gela za umivanje znamke Mirati zmanjkalo, sem se odločila, da dam možnost, da me navduši, gelu za umivanje znamke Alpstories, saj ga Gejba, ki stoji za blogom Parokeets, izjemno hvali. In sedaj razumem, zakaj. Je izjemno nežen, ne preveč gost gel, ki odlično očisti kožo, je ne draži in je primeren tudi za občutljivo kožo.

L'Oreal Lip Paint tekoče šminke
L'Oreal je pred kratkim lansiral šest novih tekočih šmink, od katerih so tri mat, tri pa imajo sijoč finiš. Meni je formula všeč, predvsem pri sijočih šminkah. Najdejo se tudi take, katerih nanos je vse prej kot enostaven, npr. temno vijoličen, ampak po drugi strani pa mi je ravno pri tem všeč odtenek, saj ni vsakdanji. Drugače se večinoma šminke lepo nanašajo, ne izsušujo ustnic in so dokaj obstojne, na ustnicah pa pustijo stain (predvsem temnejši oz. živahnejši odtenki). 

Ste že preizkusile katerega od teh izdelkov? Ali vas je navdušil? Hvala za pozornost!

FOTD: Heart Makeup


Happy Valentine's day, everyone. It's been a while since I posted and created a makeup look that's not just a basic look with eyeliner and lipstick. I decided to do a makeup look, inspired by Valentine's day, and meanwhile to try few new L'Oreal products I received recently. 
Red, red, red. Today's day screams red to me, so I used red toned eyeshadows from Sleek Sunset palette, but the final makeup looks a lot less intense as I had in mine. But it doesn't matter, I like it a lot. After ages, I did cut crease. I really like this technique, although it looks much better with matte eyeshadows. The eyeliner is L'Oreal Superliner Superstar. I talked about it in yesterday's post. Can you see how intense it still looks after months of usage? Definitely an amazing product.
I miss doing creative makeup looks a lot. Unfortunately, I don't have much time to do them often. After all, Neja won't be a baby forever, she's growing fast and the time I spend with her is very precious to me. But I hope I'll manage to do as many looks as possible when she grows. I have so many ideas I want to realize. 
I updated this simple Valentine's day look with some glitter to make it look more special in complicated. :P 
On my lips, I'm wearing new L'Oreal liquid lipstick in shade 204 Red Actually. So far I'm really liking the formula. It feels very pleasant and non-drying on lips.

*Face
- Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation 51 Vanilla
- Bourjois Radiance Reveal concealer 01 Ivory
- BeYu Stay Matt makeup base

Top Makeup Products of 2016

Every blogger is writing about Valentine's day, showing you Valentine's day makeup and nails, recommending you gifts for the day of love, and I'm here, writing about makeup products that impressed me last year. Gosh, I'm late. This post won't be long. I'm just going to mention my favourite product for each category and reasons why I love them.


 Face
I love it because it's shade it very light, which means that it matches my skin during a whole year. It's also hydrating, easy to apply and blend and it lasts a whole day. I don't like heavy covering foundations on my skin, so this product is perfect for me. But unfortunately, they won't sell it in Slovenia anymore. :(

Top makeup base: BeYu Stay Matt Makeup Base
Its silky texture feels very light on the skin and the application of foundation is easier over it. 

Top concealer: Bourjois Radiance Reveal 01 Ivory
This is a medium coverage concealer that's perfect to use under eyes or to cover any redness I have on my skin. It's light, which means that it matches my skin tone during the winter when I'm pale, and it doesn't crease, which is its biggest plus. 

This is a nicely pigmented bronzer that I was using a lot for contouring my cheeks during the summer. I like it because it doesn't have too strong orange undertone and because it lasts a whole day on my cheeks. 

Top contouring product: L'Oreal Infallible Sculpt contouring palette 01 Light/Medium
In our drugstores is so hard to find a good cream product for contouring. L'Oreal Infallible Sculpt palette was a love at first try. The bronzer in it is amazing. A taupe brown looks good on the fair skin, it's nicely pigmented, but again not too much so you can build it up. It's easy to apply and blend. I also like concealer in it but the bronzer is the one that won me over.

Top blush: L'Oreal Blush Sculpt 102 Nude Beige
This is a trio blush that impressed me because it looks so natural on my cheeks. All three shades are actually hard to use on their own but that doesn't bother me because I really like how they look together. The blush has a nice colour payoff and lasts long on cheeks. 


Eyes
Top eyeliner: L'Oreal Superliner Superstar Black
I have this eyeliner for around a year now and it still didn't dry. Do I have to say more? I love everything about it - it's a nice black shade with a great tip that enables an easy application and it's also easy to do a flick with it. 

Top mascara: Catrice Glam&Doll mascara
I was never a fan of Catrice mascaras but this one highly impressed me. It separates lashes nicely, gives them a beautiful volume and prolongs them. But it's not waterproof so it won't hold a curl for long. 

Top eyebrow eyeshadow: Artdeco Eye Brow Powder 3
Not too pigmented brown matte eyeshadow that's actually quite a nice match for my eyebrows.

Lips
These lipsticks have an amazingly creamy matte formula and a great colour payoff. They last for hours and cost only 3,90 €. I have three shades and love each one of them. 


Nails
Top nail polishes: Essence Colour&Care Strengthening nail polishes
This line provides pastel nail polishes with a great formula that's easy to apply (and we all know pastels can be difficult) and it's opaque in two to three coats (it depends on the shade). I have three shades I Care For You, Lean on Me and You Made My Day. These three shades were most worn polishes on my nails last year.

Top base coat: Alessandro base coat
I got this base coat in Alessandro's 2015 advent's calendar. I liked it a lot (I already used it because it was a small bottle of 5 ml). It dried very quickly on nails and the polishes were easy to apply over it.
