My December favorites

The winter is coming, well in Prague the winter had come already. It is really cold outside and the cold is affecting my lips, hands and skin in general.

I have many lip balms (at least one in almost every purse I own). But right now, my favourite two are Mybeline Baby Lips Electro and a lip balm from La Roche - Posay Cicaplast Levres (yeah, I bought it on vacation in Paris because my lips were falling apart). I just have to have this two lip balms around me at all times.





Second that I carry around all the time is hand cream. I have many of them but right now my favourite is Essence ''Mountain Calling'' Hand Balm (it' good for the nails too). It smells divine and my hands are soft at all the times. The cherry on the top is the fact, that is great for nails too, because I'm using gelish a lot.



For my face, I use two different creams. But first I always wash my face with a gentle peeling which I bought in Rossmann and it's really good and cheap. So, lets move to the creams. One is Avène Hydrance Optimal Légère which really moistures my shin beautifully and it's intended for young skin. The second one is something that my boyfriend bought for me. It's made after a Swedish recipe and it's called Originalna krema Mame Hanne. It's an expensive cream, but it's worth every euro. It's more greasy and it's perfect when my skin is really dry. Sometimes I use it for my hands and lips too.






And the final thing I can't live without in this cold days is tea. I'm a big fan of all kinds of tea. But my favourite teas are the real ones. They can get really expensive but it's fine with me. I have a whole collection of teas, but my favourite is green tea called China White Snow Bud. I also like to drink red and black tea too. Sometimes with a hint of milk in it.

Review of Makeup Revolution ''Give Them Nightmares'' Eyeshadow Palette

It seams like every girl is so impressed with Makeup Revolution and naturally I needed to try this out. I was looking at their products for quite some time now and I could tell from other reviews that Makeup Revolution seems to produce great quality makeup and that the makeup is really affordable to anyone.

I bought this pallet from Ličila.si. Pallet is a part of Makeup Revolution's limited edition Salvation collection. The pallet consists of green, purple and grey eyeshadows and it was just perfect for me. I got it, again, last week, when my boyfriend came to Prague.






The pallet came to me in a pretty package which really caught my attention when I was deciding on which pallet should I try out. Eyeshadows are placed in a glossy black box which is not to big to put it in a regular purse and inside it is equipped with a big mirror (I really appreciate this big mirror, especially if you are in a apartment with three other girls and you need to share the bathroom on the night of some great party). The pallet contains of 18 shades, 12 of them are shimmery and 6 of them matte. The shimmery shades are placed in upper area of the the pallet, mattes are placed at the bottom.





I just can't say enough about the quality of this eyeshadows. They really have this great pigmentation and even after a all night party, they are still just glowing on you. And when I say that they stay, I mean it. I don't use any bases or primers for fixating my makeup.
The eyeshadows are really easy to put on and you don't need to rip off your eyelid to make them even.

I just can't get enough of this pallet, I am using it all the time, especially I can't put my hands off the greens.

I would recommend Makeup Revolution and their products to any girl. Their products are really affordable (for the pallet you will pay around 10€ in Slovenia) and the quality is great.

Review of some products from Essence trend edition ''Good Girl, Bad Girl''

I was really looking forward to this edition. I was searching for it like crazy in Prague and since I couldn't find it any where, I ordered some items from Click2Chic and my boyfriend brought them to me last week.

I wanted to order both lipsticks, but since I have one great purple lipstick, I just ordered the pink one. And I ordered two nail polishes: the one with the porcelain effect and the one with leather effect. The waiting for the products was not fine, I can tell you that. I was so anxious about them :D

So here they are now...




Lipstick 02 Caught In The Middle

The colour isn't dark or something like that and it's definitely not my stile. But since I didn't have lipstick like that, I thought I will give it a try. I like it, oddly. I don't wear it every day, just occasionally, but it really looks good on lips. 
I like that it do not dry out after some time and the lips are really smooth. There is minimal or even no stains left on glass after drinking and even kissing ;). My only negative thought is, that pigmentation doesn't last for at least several hours. 




Nail polish 03 Who Am I? Porcelain Effect

I was looking forward to this polish but I really don't like it now. Today, I tried it out and it was just one big catastrophe. The polish is drying to fast so I couldn't make it really even and when the nail was done, on some parts of my nails, there weren't any polish and on every nail I could see the moves of the brush and I really wasn't nice, so I took it off. 


Nail polish 04 Caught In The Middle Leather Effect

When the first polish didn't work out for me, I decided that I give it a try with this one. And again...I didn't like it. The glitters in the polish are to big and chunky so they were just sticking out of my nail. I thought that the second coat would do the trick, but it didn't. And if I tell the truth, I saw some of other polishes with leather effect, but I just can't see the leather effect in this one. It's just like black nail polish with some glitter in it.

*Recommended retail price

From this edition I will put my hands on (at least I hope I will) that lip smoother, 01 lipstick, blush brush (I just love it!) and maybe on that mint nail polish.  

My makeup box

This was one of presents that my boyfriend gave me when I was home. I wanted makeup box for some years now, but I didn't do anything about it. Then his mother bot it for her accessors and I felt in love with the box.
So I went with my boyfriend to Baumax in Kranj. They had lots of colours but hey, black is my colour :).

The box is quite big and it isn't heavy (yay). It has this compartments that you can divide in different lengths. An at the bottom there is lots of space for pallets, brushes and stuff like that. Also, you can lock the box.

I didn't put my makeup in it yet, since I didn't take it with me to Prague and there wasn't much makeup at home (yes, I have almost all of my makeup with me). I just can't wait to start organising it.

An I have this fear, that this box won't be big enough for everything :D

Beauty haul

When me and my friend say:''We are just going for coffee in the centre of Prague,'' it really means we are going to shop for 6 hours and then we are going to rest at some coffee place where they serve good coffee and they have a good and free WI-FI connection.

And there wasn't any difference this time :).

When we got out of the metro, the first stop was Rossmann where I bought four new nail polishes, nail art designer set form Essence, Essence Effect lipgloss, some facial peeling and a beauty set for my feet (pumice stone and a foot cream). In New Yorker I bought black matching bra and panties and also a red bra with matching thongs. In cloths store called Sinsey (clothes there aren't cheap) I bought a cute T-shirt.



The nail polishes I bought from Essence are: 
156 Me & My Lover (the red one and it has a sand effect)
104 Sweet As Candy (the pink one, it looks very natural on nails)
173 Over The Rainbow

The Over The Rainbow nail polish is very cute and it reminds me of fairies. I actually have it on right now and it has this shimmer which I really like. The colour is purple-blue with little sparkle.


An the fourth nail polish was Rimmel's 010 Fizzy Applelicous which has a sand effect to and the colour looks green but when you actually polish your nails is more of a white with a touch of green.

The lipgloss is awesome. My lips really do sparkle and the colour is great too. I wear it every day for my courses and when I don't have much time to put my make up on.


And I really want to show you my Batman T-shirt: 


So this is it for now...
