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.
