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.

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...

Maybelline BABY LIPS Electro Lip Balm Review

As I wrote in one of mine previous posts, I spent last week at home and I also went on a trip with my boyfriend and his mother to Trieste. We were just walking around and visited some shops with clothes, but I did't found anything for me.

In of their make up shops I found a new BABY LIPS lip balm from Maybelline. The line is called Electro and the lip balms are pigmented. There are 6 different colour of the lip balm (two of them are neon colours but on lips, they are just like ordinary lip balm). I chose purple colour (BERRY BOMB), since I really darker colours.

I couldn't wait to go home and try out the new lip balm!

When I opened it, I could smell the sweet scent of it. It smells gorgeous and it makes you want to eat it. When I pout the balm on my lips it also tasted great. Lips were very soft and they actually stayed soft for long time. The pigmentation is not like with a normal lipstick, but you can see the colour on your lips. Even if the colour is not that obvious, it looks great and it just perfect for every day use (I don't use lipsticks on a daily bases but I still like my lips to look pretty and that they have some colour on them). I need to add here, that the colour wasn't purple but it was more of a pink-purple.

I recommend this lip balm to all girls who doesn't want to use lipstick all the time, but at the same time, they want to have pigmented lips. The balm also makes your lips really soft (just for kissing ;) and in addition to that, they smelly really delicious.









Here is the link to the lip balm and there you can see other colours too:

Essence 24h hand protection balm - CAKE POPS review

For the past week, I was at home. I just started to miss Slovenia, my family and friends and all my animals. So I decided to pop in a car and go home.

The first thing I did was hug all my members of family and then I went with my boyfriend to CityPark. First stop was DM, where I bought Hand protection balm form Essence (CAKE POPS trend edition).
First, I had some trouble picking up my favourite fragrance and at the end, I decided for vanilla & cinnamon.

From the day I bought this cream till now, I was using it like crazy. I also carry it in my bag all the time. The smell is just divine and I just love it! The cream is moisturising, thanks to shea butter and coconut oil and it makes my hand soft. It is absorbed quickly so my hands aren't greasy (witch I really hate).

I think that I will buy other two fragrances too (cherry & coconut and cookies & almond)
