Lancôme Rouge In Love - 340B Rose Boudoir

28 comments

Hello everyone!


Good morning to you all! It is a very gloomy wednesday here in Zagreb today - I literally waited for the sun to come up for just a few seconds so I could take my pictures. Luckily I managed to, and the post is here, otherwise I probably wouldn't have published anything today. This will probably be one of my favorite posts and reviews ever because the lipstick I'm about to review has been on my wishlist ever since last year when Michelle Phan published a video where she wore this lipcolor and I instantly fell in love with it. You will see why soon enough.

Since summer is finally here (I'm one of those people that actually like summer), and since my graduation is just a few days away (Friday) - I thought it would be a good idea to treat myself with this lipstick and I  did and I'm so happy that I've made that choice. People, if you want something for over a year, order it :D that's my advice. Money could be a problem but then again we all know you're gonna spend it on tons of other small stuff instead so why not invest in the one thing you truly want?

Lancôme's Rouge in Love line is perhaps better suited for spring time but this color is such a perfect coral that in my opinion it compliments the summery notes even better. The shade I ordered is called Rose Boudoir (340B) and somewhere it can be seen as "Corail in Love". That's probably because the European and American stores have a difference in naming the products.

So let's see my opinions on this lipcolor line, the longevity of the product, the pros and cons and so on!






Dobro jutro svima! Vrijeme u Zagrebu je katastrofalno, kiši i tamno je, tako da se ovaj post zamalo nije dogodio. Razlog tome je nemogućnost fotografiranja u tamnoj sobi koja se srećom promijenila kad je sunce izašlo tako da sam doslovno otrčala po fotoaparat i uslikala na brzinu par slika kako bih vam pokazala ovaj proizvod. Ovo mi je vjerojatno jedna od najdražih recenzija ikad s obzirom da sam ovaj ruž imala na wishlisti najmanje godinu dana, još otkako ga je Michelle Phan pokazala u jednom videu. Čim sam ga vidjela znala sam da je to moja boja i da je moram nekako nabaviti no s obzirom na visoku cijenu to nije bio slučaj sve do sada. 

Kako je ljeto konačno ovdje (da, ja sam jedna od onih koje vole ljeto :D) i kako mi je obrana diplomskog uskoro (u petak) smatrala sam prigodnim konačno naručiti ovaj proizvod i tako se malo počastiti radi svih ovih godina mučenja na faksu. Užasno mi je drago da sam to konačno napravila - sličan osjećaj sam imala i sa Mary Loumanizer kojeg sam nonstop odgađala tako da savjet za sve vas koji ovo čitate - ako nešto stvarno dugo želite, kao što sam ja ovo, naručite si čim ste u mogućnosti. Nemojte žaliti za novcem jer ćete ga i tako potrošiti na hrpu sitnih stvari koje ćete brzo zaboraviti, eto bar je kod mene uvijek takav slučaj. 

Lancôme Rouge In Love linija namijenjena je proljeću, ali mislim da podjednako dobro odgovara i u ljetnim mjesecima, a to se posebno odnosi na nijansu koju sam naručila - 340 b Rose Boudoir - koja je prekrasna koraljna boja savršena upravo za toplo vrijeme koje iščekujemo. Ova nijansa se negdje zove Corail in Love, a sve radi različitog imenovanja nijansa kod nas i u SAD-u.

New in #2 - summer edition!

36 comments

Hello everyone,



I thought it would be a good idea to do an updated new in post since I have recieved and bought many new things and it would be a shame not to share them all with you guys. Since summer is coming, I'm trying to stock up on essentials that I will use throughout the season because I normally don't do much shopping during summer. It is mostly because we usually spend the summer at our house on the seaside which is located in a small town that doesn't even have a drugstore. But I kind of got used to it and I'm pretty happy with the money saving process that happens there :D and it is also the time to finally spend some of the stuff and to add them to my empties list.

S obzirom da sam u zadnjih tjedan dana dobila i kupila puno novih stvari, mislila sam da bi bilo dobro napraviti još jedan updateani new in post kako biste vidjeli sve što mi je pristiglo i možda pronašli nešto za sebe među ovim stvarima :) kako ljeto dolazi, tako ja polako kao vjeverica prikupljam stvari, ali ne za zimu nego za ljeto, jer obično u tom godišnjem dobu prestajem sa kupovinom i više manje egzistiram sa onim stvarima koje do tada kupim. Što je super jer ih konačno potrošim i dotaknem dno nekima kojima inače ne bi. Velik razlog moje ljetne apstinencije je taj što nam se vikendica nalazi u malom mjestu u kojem ne postoje drogerije pa sam nekako primorana suzdržati se od kupovanja. To je u početku teško, ali kasnije se zapravo odviknem i ni ne fali mi silna potrošnja. A i uštedim nešto novca :D 

 





That being said, I will show you the things that I got which are mostly skincare items with some random extras from Ebay that were so incredibly cheap that I still can't quite believe the prices.

U nastavku posta pokazat ću vam neke sitnice koje sam kupila ili dobila, većinom se radi o stvarima za njegu kože sa ponekim random paketićem sa Ebaya. Ove sezone me Ebay posebno iznenadio, čini se da je jeftiniji nego ikad, no o tome u nastavku :D

ÉLIXIR - face oil & skin treatment

18 comments

Hello everyone!


As I stated in my new in post which you can read here, recently I was sent some items for review. Among them was this adorable face & body oil with rose extracts. Since I haven't had a chance to use this product for a long time, these will be my first impressions only, so please take it in consideration that these are my experiences after using this oil for a week and a half only. However, knowing my skin and how it behaves, I learned that when something suits me it shows immediately and my impressions rarely change although sometimes it is possible. And vice versa - if I react badly to a product it usually stays so even after weeks and months of using it. I was in a hurry to write this review because I've noticed some big improvements in my skin after using it so I thought I should share these experiences with you.





Kao što sam navela u zadnjem new in postu, nedavno su mi poslane neke stvari za recenziranje. Među njima se našlo i ovo preslatko ulje za lice i tijelo sa ekstraktom divlje ruže. S obzirom da ga nisam stigla koristiti koliko je to potrebno za pravu recenziju, ovo će biti skup mojih prvih dojmova i iskustava sa ovim proizvodom nakon tjedan i pol dana korištenja. No, poznavajući svoju kožu, ovo je sasvim dovoljan period da odlučim da li mi se proizvod sviđa ili ne jer rijetko kad mi se dojmovi mijenjaju ukoliko mi nešto odgovara od samog početka. Isto tako, ukoliko sam s nečim nezadovoljna, to više manje ostaje tako i mjesecima nakon što koristim isti proizvod. Požurila sam se napisati ovaj osvrt jer su mi prvi dojmovi stvarno odlični i jer sam primijetila značajno poboljšanje u kvaliteti svoje kože nakon korištenja ovog ulja te sam odlučila iskustva podijeliti s vama što prije!

New in - skincare & summer essentials

28 comments

Hello everyone!


Today I finally decided to take a picture of all the things that I got in the last two weeks, some of them are repurchases and some of them are completely new in my collection. Most of these things were purchased by me, but some of them were sent as a PR product for review.

Danas sam konačno odlučila poslikati sve stvari koje sam pribavila u zadnja dva tjedna i napisati new in post. Neke stvari su kupljene ponovno jer sam njima naprosto oduševljena (npr. L'oreal Ever Riche šampon), a neki su novi u mojoj kolekciji. Također, moram napomenuti da su neki proizvodi poslani u svrhu recenziranja.





Besides these things here I also ordered some stuff from Feelunique so you can expect an updated post sometimes next week when I receive my package (I ordered some Garnier lotions from their summer line Ambre Solaire and also a face cream from the same line).

Osim stvari koje ćete vidjeti ovdje, naručila sam i neke proizvode sa Feeluniquea, tako da ću napisati updateanu verziju ovog posta idućeg tjedna vjerojatno. Naručila sam Garnier losione i kremu za lice sa spf faktorom kako bi se što bolje pripremila za ljeto pred nama :)

Wet'n'Wild eyeshadow trio - Silent Treatment

22 comments

Good morning everyone!


At least it's morning here right now as I'm writing this post. It is a beautiful morning indeed, the summer is coming and I, for one, can't wait for it. I also decided that until I make my blog completely multilingual that I will be translating the posts inside the post itself - that means - one paragraph will be English and the other one will be in Croatian. I would love to add Spanish to that mix as well but my knowledge of espanol is still a bit shaky.

This post should have happened a long, long time ago because Wet 'n' Wild Croatia sent me this eyeshadow trio quite a few months ago, together with some lipsticks. That means this is a PR product. Unfortunately, I've been delaying this review because honestly, I haven't been using eyeshadows that much recently. Mostly just mascara and a black liner. Or a coloured liner. Or any sort of liner that gets the job done fast. For those of you who don't know me - as the weather gets warmer, I try to minimise the makeup on my face. It's just that I don't like that melting feeling you get when you have tons of product on you and it's 30 degrees outside. During summer I probably won't be wearing any makeup at all, just a bb cream with spf.

Trebala sam napisati ovaj post još davno, davno prije kad mi je Wet 'n' Wild Croatia prvi put poslao svoj paketić u kojem su se osim ovih sjenila nalazili i prekrasni ruževi. Napominjem da je ovo PR proizvod, no ta činjenica nije utjecala na iskrenost ili valjanost moje recenzije.  
Nažalost, odgađala sam pisanje posta jer iskreno u zadnje vrijeme baš i ne koristim sjenila za oči. Koristim većinom maskaru i tuš ili olovku crne boje. Ili u bilo kojoj boji, samo da se što prije našminkam i dovršim muku. Za one od vas koji me ne poznaju osobno moram reći da imam čudan običaj ne šminkanja po ljeti i zapravo kako se temperature penju, stavljam sve manje proizvoda na lice. Jednostavno mi se ne sviđa osjećaj topljenja šminke na 30 stupnjeva. Ovog ljeta planiram nastaviti svoju tradiciju i nositi jedino kremu sa zaštitnim faktorom. 




That being said, I finally decided to write this post and to show you this beautiful and affordable eyeshadow palette. It's called Silent Treatment which is a pretty cool name to give to an eyeshadow trio. The colors are great for smokey eyes looks and will probably suit lighter eyecolors better. At least in my experience, the gray shades tend to look a bit overpowering on dark eyes but if you have green or blue eyes, they kind of make the color pop out even more. Of course, you can wear this in lots of different combinations or you can mix the colors inside the palette so in the end it's up to everyone's personal decisions wether to buy this or not. I decided to divide the post in four categories - packaging, color payoff/pigmentation, longevity and of course - my overall opinion, the price of the product and so on. Let's get started!

No eto, konačno sam odlučila napisati ovaj post i prikazati vam ovu lijepu i cjenovno prihvatljivu paletu sjenila. Naziv joj je Silent Treatment (Tihi tretman ili tretman šutnje - to je ono kad netko neće pričati s vama i ignorira vas što nam je svima poznato iz djetinjstva :D). Boje su odlične za smokey efekte na očima te mislim da će divno stajati onima koji imaju svjetliju boju očiju. Čisto iz razloga što sive nijanse mogu biti prejake ili zagušljive na jako tamnim očima, dok svijetle nekako ističu i otvaraju. Naravno, boje možete miksati do mile volje i vjerujem da ćete si, bez obzira na boju očiju, pronaći način da vam ova paleta odgovara jer je stvarno univerzalna. Post sam odlučila podijeliti u četiri kategorije - pakiranje, pigmentacija, dugotrajnost sjenila i nekakvo zaključno mišljenje o njemu. Pa počnimo!

Nina Ricci - Nina L'Eau perfume

14 comments

Hello everyone!

A month ago or so I stumbled upon a discount at my local Muller store and felt instantly happy because one of my favorite perfume lines - the famous Nina Ricci apples - was discounted. It was even better that they had discounted the newest scent in the collection - called simply Nina L'Eau. 

I didn't think twice and bought it immediately especially since it came with the body lotion of the same fragrance. These perfumed lotions are so so good and I enjoy them tremendously. My mom has the habit of giving them to me since she doesn't really use any other lotion than Dove or Nivea's standard body milks so I had the pleasure of using her D&G Light Blue lotion and the one from Bvlgari's Omnia line.


But let's go back to Nina Ricci. I first tried out one of these perfumes at a friend's house and loved it the second I smelled it. It was the Elixir apple and I remember how I couldn't stop thinking about this perfume ever since I left her house. Later on, I bought another apple for myself called simply Nina (the brand is not very creative when it comes to names right?). This was a bit different but still amazing version and had the same sweet-sour-fresh scent to it. Then a few years later my favorite one appeared in the drugstores - this one was called Nina Fantasy - and if you remember it is the one with the prettiest bottle (at least in my opinion). The bottle was white and gold and had engraved illustrations all over it. It was the cutest thing I've ever seen and I still keep the bottle on my shelves. I reviewed it here if you're interested - CLICK ME. 

Unfortunately, Fantasy was a limited edition item and it is not sold anymore. So when I saw this new scented apple I knew I had to have it.
