Wet n Wild Color Icon Pearlescent Pink Blush

3 comments

Wet n Wild blushes are some of the most pigmented ones I've ever had. That and their amazing price is one of the key factors why I continue purchasing them. If you've never tried them before, I think you should definitely give them a go because you won't be disappointed. Pearlescent Pink is a nice shimmery peachy pink shade that resembles Rose Gold by Sleek. One brush of it is more than enough and everything more than that can make your face seem clownish and overly pink. This shade is particularly different than all my other pink blushes, it's not a classic peach shade and it's not a typical pink either. I would say it's a very warm rose shade with gold shimmer that gives a special dimension to your cheeks - needless to say, it serves both as a blush and a highlighter as you can see on the pictures below. It's price is around 6$ which is more than affordable!

Wet n Wild rumenila su jedna od najpigmentiranijih koje sam ikad koristila te im se često vraćam radi toga, ali i radi njihove odlične, prihvatljive cijene i dugotrajnosti. Ako ih nikad još niste isprobali, svakako preporučam jer mislim da vas neće razočarati. Omjer cijene i kvalitete ovdje je više nego optimalan. Nijansa koju danas prikazujem nosi naziv Pearlescent Pink i kako joj i ime sugerira, radi se o breskvasto rozoj shimmer nijansi koja vrlo nalikuje Rose Gold-u od Sleeka. Jedan potez kistom dovoljan je kako ne biste izgledali previše ružičasto. Kao i sa Sleekom, pigmentacija je zaista na razini i to je ujedno i dobra, ali i zeznuta stvar jer je lako pretjerati. Pearlescent Pink nije klasična roza nijansa - toplog podtona, u sebi sadrži sitni shimmer zlatne boje koji se na licu predivno oslikava i daje mu dodatnu dimenziju tako da vam highlighter neće biti potreban. Mislim da ovo rumenilo može super izgledati i na blijeđim i tamnijim tonovima lica, a definitivno će se super nadopuniti uz nude oči i ruž jednake nijanse, kako sam pokušala prikazati na slikama. Cijena ovog rumenila je 33,90 kn što je zaista povoljno za ovako odličan proizvod!

Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate Review

4 comments

Ever since I turned 25, my skin has been a lot drier than before and I noticed that it needs extra hydration that I've never used before. Standard skin screams for dry skin are usually not that good for me, as they tend to be too rich and oily. I've been using Lancome's Vissionnaire Nuit night cream for a while now, and Afrodita's Hydra Thermal as a day cream (highly recommend them both). But still, even with them, my skin sometimes needs extra care, especially since it's been going through a lot of stressful events lately and it needs deep recovery, especially overnight. Kiehl's Midnight Concentrate has been perfect for that, it's much different than standard skin oils, as it is a lot more gentle, it soaks in nicely and doesn't leave a greasy trail behind. It's recommend for night usage, and it can be applied over or below your night cream (or as a single product). The benefits I've noticed are great. My skin doesn't look grayish in the morning and it appears a lot more rested, refreshed. Also, all of my dry patches disappear whenever I use this serum.

The scent of this products is beautiful, and that's no wonder since the concentrate uses lavender and primrose oils as a base. It's soothing, calming and has that lovely aromatherapy effect on my (usually) tired skin. In my experience, it's best to use it after a hot shower, because that's when the pores are opened and the serum's effect is greater. 

Otkako sam navršila 25. godinu, koža mi je znatno suša nego prije i potrebna joj je dodatna njega kakvu prije nikada nisam koristila. Standardne kreme za suhu kožu mi najčešće ne odgovaraju jer znaju biti premasne i preteške, stoga već neko vrijeme za noć koristim Lancome Vissionnaire Nuit noćnu kremu, te Afroditinu Hydra Thermal dnevnu kremu (svakako preporučam). Uz njih, ponekad ipak trebam i dodatnu pomoć svojoj koži koja proživljava dosta stresno razdoblje uz moje svakodnevne obaveze na poslu te posebno sada u ovo hladnije doba godine kada nastupa i prirodna isušenost. Kiehl's Midnight Recovery serum pokazao se kao hvalevrijedan proizvod kojeg bi preporučila i onima koji ulja koriste s oprezom. Naime, za razliku od klasičnih ulja, ovaj pripravak se ponaša kao serum, lagan je na koži, brzo se upija i ostavlja kožu nahranjenom. Posebno ga je dobro koristiti prije spavanja, primjećujem da mi uvijek s lica makne sivilo i umorni izgled kože. 

Miris ovog proizvoda je nešto stvarno divno, nježno, ali opojno, savršeno za aromaterapiju koju si ponekad trebamo priuštiti. Najviše ga volim nanositi na čistu kožu, nakon tuširanja, pri čemu su pore otvorene i proizvod se bolje upija. Koža mi je od ovog seruma ujutro mekana i nahranjena, a nakon dužeg korištenja primijetila sam i da je više 'elastična' odnosno vratio joj se nekadašnji izgled. Ovaj popularni proizvod opravdao je sva moja očekivanja, a i više od toga te mislim da je neizostavan dio beauty rutine u kojeg se isplati uložiti (cijena mu je 300 kuna, no zaista dugo dugo traje). Čak i ako inače ne koristite ulja, možda bi vam se ova vrsta koncentriranog seruma mogla svidjeti s obzirom da je nenametljiv, a opet dovoljno efektan na koži. 



Something about the brand itself:

Kiehl's is an American cosmetics brand retailer that specializes in premium skin, hair, and body care products. It started as a single pharmacy in Manhattan at Third Avenue and East 13th Street in 1851. Kiehl's was purchased by the L'Oréal Group in 2000 and currently has more than 250 retail stores worldwide, and over 1,000 points of sale supplemented by sales in high-end department stores, select airport locations, as well as independent stockists. In contrast to its market competitors, Kiehl's is distinguished for its unorthodox marketing approach, exceptionally large male clientele base, and its products' simple and straightforward packaging.



Za kraj, nešto o samom brendu Kiehl's:

Kiehl’sovo klasično nasljeđe i posvećenost kupcu u srži su svakog proizvoda i usluge u 165. godine dugoj povijesti tvrtke – od istraživanja sastojaka i testiranja sigurnosti formula, do unutarnjeg uređenja lokalnih dućana, sve je podređeno individualnim potrebama kupaca u lokalnim zajednicama. U svim Kiehl’s prodavaonicama načela klasične ljekarne protkana su modernim elementima koji odražavaju posebnosti zajednice i odaju počast počecima tvrtke u njujorškoj četvrti East Village. Već samim ulaskom u jedinstveni prostor posjetitelji bivaju uvučeni u dugu povijest i ekscentričan karakter tvrtke: posvuda se mogu vidjeti tragovi duge tradicije branda, uključujući fotografije originalne lokacije glavne trgovine u New Yorku, obitelji osnivača i ekspedicija pod Kiehl’sovim sponzorstvom. Nezaobilazan dio trgovina je i tzv. Mr. Bones – popularni kostur, jedan od simbola ovog brenda.

L'Oreal Mythic Oil Products Review

1 comment

You all know how much I enjoy L'Oreal hair products. Their professionnel line is by far the best haircare assortment I've tried so far. Mythic oil products are pure luxury and I’m really happy that I’ve had the chance of trying them out. The products that I will be reviewing are: Mythic oil shampoo for fine hair, oil light masque and a special spray dry conditioner. All of them smell really nice and I can’t imagine that someone wouldn’t like it. The rich nourishment that they provide is great for my color treated hair, and I’m glad that I got the light versions of the products, because the original ones could have been a bit too heavy for my fine hair. All of these products smell divine – you will be amazed at how good their scent is. They are enriched with argan, avocado, ginger, almond, sunflower, orange, cottonseed and grapeseed oil blend which makes their quality excellent.

Vjerujem da već svi znate koliko volim L'Oreal proizvode za kosu. Njihova professionnel linija najbolja je od svega što sam do sada probala i zaista u sebi sadrže proizvode za svaki tip kose. Mythic Oil proizvodi predstavljaju pravi luksuz i sretna sam što sam ih imala priliku isprobati. Danas ću vam govoriti o: Mythic Oil šamponu za tanku kosu, maski za kosu (light verzija) te posebnom suhom regeneratoru u spreju. Svi ovi proizvodi predivno mirišu i kosi daju osjećaj salonske njege, tako da ne mogu zamisliti da se nekom ne bi svidjeli. Moje verzije proizvoda imaju na sebi oznaku light i namijenjene su tankoj kosi koja se brzo masti, dok bi originalni vjerojatno za nju bili preteški. Usprkos toj oznaci, jako su bogati i njeguju kosu temeljito i dugoročno. Mythic Oil linija u sebi sadrži čak 11 njegujućih ulja, a neka od njih su - arganovo, avokadovo, đumbirovo, bademovo, suncokretovo, narančino, te ulja koštica grožđa, a svako od ovih ulja ima poseban utjecaj na njegu kosu - neka od njih pružaju oporavak, druga sjaj itd.


SHAMPOO FOR FINE HAIR



My go-to shampoo for when I want to look especially nice. It’s oily in texture and foams up quickly and nicely, being so rich that you won’t need any conditioning afterwards. My favorite way of using it is – I use L’Oreal’s Serioxyl first to wash all the grease out of my hair and then for second washing I use Mythic oil. Sometimes I use the masque, sometimes I don’t, depends on the care my hair needs that day. It’s a lovely product and you will love it if your hair is in any way damaged – the repair effect is strong and longlasting. This version is made for fine hair, but it’s really rich so I don’t think you will need anything stronger than that even if your hair is thicker than mine. 

Ovo mi je postao go-to šampon za posebne trenutke kada želim da mi kosa izgleda salonski njegovano i sjajno. Uljne je teksture i brzo se pjeni te ga ne treba puno za uporabu. Trenutno najdraži način primjene mi je da prvo upotrijebim L'Oreal Serioxyl šampon koji iz kose temeljito ispere svu prljavštinu i masnoću, a potom kao završni finish Mythic Oil. Ponekad uz šampon koristim i masku, ali ne više od dva puta tjedno jer je zaista bogata u njezi. Svidjet će vam se ovaj šampon ako vam je kosa suha, oštećena, ako joj je potreban sjaj i njega. Čak i ova light verzija ima jako bogati njegujući efekt tako da mislim da bi vam bio dovoljan čak i ako vam je kosa gušća i jača od moje.

Price / cijena: 20$ - oko 100 kuna



OIL LIGHT MASQUE



Mythic Oil masks are said to be one of the top five hair masks in the beauty and hairdressing world. It really is so. I’ve never had a mask that has been that deeply nourishing for my hair, except for maybe INOA hair masque that I’ve used last year I think. If your hair needs quality treatment, this mask will be a true pay off. It makes my hair soft, shiny, leaves a trail of a gorgeous scent and it feels as if I’ve recently been to a hairdressing salon. The only downside is that with such rich nourishment your hair might get a bit greasy quicker than you expected, so it’s important to wash it out thoroughly. Keep in mind – this is the LIGHT version of the masque, if you have thick hair, you might use the other version.

Mythic Oil maske za kosu slove kao jedne od najboljih u svijetu ljepote. Da je to istina, potvrdila sam ovim testiranjem. Nikad prije nisam imala masku koja je toliko dubinski njegovala moju kosu, osim možda INOA maske koja je namijenjena obojanoj kosi. No i dalje je Mythic Oil temeljitija i pruža veći sjaj te puno ljepši i ugodniji miris. Ako vam je potrebna zaista jaka njega kose, investirajte u ovu masku, ne vjerujem da ćete požaliti jer dugo traje, a efekt je divan. Jedini nedostatak kojeg sam primijetila jest da mi se kosa zna zamastiti brže nego ako je ne koristim, ali to je zato što maska u sebi sadrži mnogo njegujućih ulja i stvarno ju je potrebno dobro isprati nakon korištenja. Ova verzija je isto kao i šampon - LIGHT - a za jaču kosu može se koristiti i klasična verzija.

Price / cijena: 30$ - oko 200 kuna


DRY CONDITIONER



This product is pretty unusual and it’s the first time I’ve ever used something like this on my hair. It is a hair spray that’s supposed to make your hair glossy and nourished and you apply it on your freshly washed, dry hair. I’ve noticed significant improvements, it really does add that extra shine and glossy finish and it smells great. I almost feel as if I applied hair perfume after using this. I would especially recommend it to people with curly and damaged hair, it will add that beautiful, voluptuous look movie stars get in their commercials. 5+

Ovaj proizvod je nešto najneobičnije iz cijele kolekcije, naime radi se o spreju za kosu koji za sobom ostavlja njegujući film visokog sjaja. Sjaj kojeg pruža pravi je salonski, a miris ovog spreja podsjeća na parfem za kosu. Proizvod mi se jako svidio jer mi kosa od njega poprimi onaj završni glossy finish, bez da se zamasti ili na bilo koji način ošteti. Također, ovaj sprej pruža i učvršćivanje tako da mislim da je najbolji za korištenje na svježe nakovrčanoj kosi kao završni dodatak. Zaista sam zadovoljna i mislim da ću ga nastaviti kupovati i dalje. 5+

Price / cijena: 25$ - oko 120 kuna

HUGE Primark Haul: Unicorns, fluffness & rose explosions

10 comments

Primark hauls are always huge I believe, since it's almost impossible to go there and leave empty handed. Not only is everything cheap, but the quality is good and you can choose from an array of products that are usually not sold in other stores.That being said, earlier this month I decided to go to Seiersberg shopping mall in Graz, Austria, specifically to visit Primark and to get some of the things that have been on my wishlist for some time now. I have lots of pictures ready and I think they will speak for themselves - without much words neccessary. :) 

The first thing I got and the thing that I wanted the most was this unicorn PJ's and this racoon bath robe - they're something that I never saw in stores here and I've been in love with these types of night time clothes ever since I first saw them. I was a bit sad that there wasn't a unicorn onesie available, but this cute plushie bath robe is equally nice! I also got some fluffy pale purple slippers which will go nicely with the set.

Primark haulovi su uvijek ogromni vjerujem, zato što je naprosto nemoguće otići tamo i kupiti samo jednu stvar, od ogromnog izbora i niskih cijena pred vama. Ne samo da je sve jeftino, već je odjeća i začuđujuće kvalitetna i meni osobno modernija i posebnija nego ova koju nalazim u dućanima u RH. Tako sam ranije ovog mjeseca odlučila posjetiti Seiersberg centar kod Graza samo kako bih otišla u Primark i kupila neke od stvari koje su mi već dugo na wishlisti, a koje sam znala da ću tamo pronaći. Pripremila sam puno slika tako da vjerujem da će one govoriti više od mojih riječi :)

Prvo što sam kupila i što sam jako dugo htjela je ova pidžama s jednorogom i kućni ogrtač sa rakunom - takvo nešto nisam ovdje vidjela, čini mi se da je H&M imao slične ogrtače, ali bili su jako skupi i sigurno po mom sjećanju više od 16€ koliko sam ovog platila. Također uz ovu kombinaciju kupila sam blijedo ljubičaste šlapice od pufastog materijala koje su zaista ugodne i tople i dobro će mi doći ove zime!


After all of these silly items, I did get a few clothing thingies and most of them have sparkles on them so bear with me. Primark is great for buying shirts you can't find anywhere else - Disney, Harry Potter themed items, all at a really affordable prices and usually coming from original productions. This time I opted for these shirts that I believe are wearable both for working purposes and in my free time. All of the prices are listed at the pictures and for any additional questions feel free to comment below and ask me!

Nakon svih ovih blesavoća, moram pokazati i neke normalnije stvari koje sam kupila za svakodnevno nošenje, iako i ove majice većinom imaju šljokice na sebi, tako da istrpite taj dio. :D  Primark je odlična destinacija za kupnju majica i odjeće sa raznom tematikom - npr. Disney, Harry Potter, LOTR, razni drugi fan fictioni, svi su dostupni tamo po super cijenama i najčešće s originalnim etiketama, kao i u C&A. Sve cijene navedene su na slikama, no ako vas neki proizvod posebno zainteresira, slobodno mi se javite u inbox ili u komentarima ispod sa upitom!


Of course, this wouldn't be a Primark haul if it didn't have any jewelry in it (theirs is incredibly cheap and pretty!) so as you can see on the pictures below, most of the things I purchased are covered in rose gold glitz and glam. Apart from jewelry, I also got a cute mermaid like pink cosmetic bag which will be great for all of my daily makeup needs. Also - I had to get some panties, socks and the Super Cosy Tights which all beauty bloggers constantly praise:

Naravno, ovo ne bi bio pravi Primark haul da se u njemu ne nađe bar nešto nakita (njihov je jako jeftin i kvalitetan!) tako da kao što vidite na slikama, izabrala sam dosta toga od ružičastog zlata koje je sada već neko vrijeme popularno i koje obožavam. Osim nakita, uzela sam i jednu slatku kozmetičku torbicu (njih nikad dosta) koja po sebi ima malene ljuskice koje se presijavaju u pastelnim bojama te naravno nezaobilazan set gaćica, čarapa i ove Super Cosy tajice koje sve strane blogerice hvale:


At last, I purchased these two perfumes - Rose Explosion from Primark and White Musk Libertine from The Body Shop. I have to say I'm completely amazed with them!!! I usually purchase high end perfumes, some of my favorite brands are Chloe and Lancome, but trust me, these ones didn't disappoint. Rose Explosion is made of roses, orchids, jasmine and patchouli and it smells really chic and elegant - I would compare it to Lancome's La Vie est Belle and perhaps Lancome's Tresor. Highly recommended - check out Primark's perfumes if you're ever there - you won't be sorry (and it's ONLY 11 euros! for 100 ml). White Musk Libertine is a powdery delight I purchased at The Body Shop - you will love it if you like Chloe's perfumes because it's really soft and gentle, girly but incredibly rich at the same time. It smells as if you just had a fresh shower with candy fuzz soap. It was 24 euros before, but I got it on discount for only 12€. 

Na kraju, kupila sam ova dva parfema - Rose Explosion iz Primarka i White Musk Libertine is The Body Shop-a. Moram reći da sam potpuno oduševljena njima!!! Obično kupujem high end parfeme, a najdraže marke su mi Chloe i Lancome, ali vjerujte, ovi nisu uopće zaostajali niti su me ikako razočarali. Rose Explosion je divan miris koji u sebi sadrži ružu, jasmin, orhideju, pačuli - savršen damski elegantan miris koji me jako podsjeća na La Vie est Belle i Tresor. Preporučam ga apsolutno - ako se ikad nađete u Primarku, dajte mu šansu - nećete požaliti (posebno za cijenu od 11€ za 100 ml !!!). White Musk Libertine puderasti je šećer od mirisa kojeg sam skroz slučajno našla u The Body Shop-u. Svidjet će vam se ako volite Chloe parfeme jer je jednako nježan i ugodan, a opet dovoljno bogat da se primijeti i osjeti. Mene podsjeća na mirisne kupke, šećernu vatu, dječji puder i sve ostale vesele i lijepe stvari. Prije je koštao 24 eura, a ja sam ga našla na sniženju za samo 12€.


Što Vam se od ovog najviše svidjelo? Jeste li ikad kupovali u Primarku?
