L'Oréal Professionnel Volumetry Shampoo & Pro-Keratin Refill masque

10 comments

A combination from heavens! That's what my hair felt after using these two products for the last couple of weeks. My first encounter with the L'Oréal Professionnel Volumetry shampoo has been at my hairdressing salon where they used it on my fine, thin hair to give it some extra volume. I enjoyed the smell throughout the washing and my hair felt bouncy afterwards so I decided to order it for home use and give it a try (Feelunique had great discount on hair products). Pro-Keratin Refill masque was included in one of the Lookfantastic beauty boxes I ordered and I immediately liked it. Even though it was a small sample size, it lasted for quite some time for me. So while ordering on Feelunique, I opted for this combination and I think I found my miracle duo!

Kombinacija iz raja! Tako sam se osjećala nakon što sam koristila ove proizvode na svojoj kosi zadnjih par tjedana. Prvi susret sa L'Oréal Professionnel Volumetry šamponom bio je u mom frizerskom salonu gdje su ga posebno izabrali za moju tanku kosu kako bi joj dali više volumena. Svidio mi se miris kod samog pranja, a kosa mi je izgledala lepršavo i mirisala svježe tako da sam ga odlučila naručiti i za kućnu uporabu i isprobati samostalno (Feelunique je imao super popust na proizvode za kosu). Pro-Keratin Refill masku dobila sam u jednoj Lookfantastic beauty kutiji i odmah mi se svidjela. Iako smo dobili samo malu, tester verziju, potrajala je dosta dugo, a efekt na kosi bio je odličan. Tako sam prilikom narudžbe na Feeluniqueu, u košaricu stavila ova dva proizvoda i mislim da sam (konačno) pronašla svoj čarobni duo!

L'Oréal Professionnel Volumetry Shampoo


What I love about this shampoo is that it's quite thick and you will only need a small amount to make your hair clean. It's best when used with two rinses, and  after that my hair feels squeaky clean, lightweight but soft. The scent is incredibly fresh and reminds me of lemon grass or mint – it's not superficial or heavy in any way. This shampoo uses the salicylic acid and HydraLight technology to make the hair less greasy and more uplift, especially in the roots. I usually wash my hair every two days or so and with this shampoo it could even last longer. As far as the volume goes, I have noticed significant changes when compared to other shampoos. My hair feels extra light, perky and clean in a good, non dehydrating way. It's finally lifted off the roots!

I would recommend it to everyone who suffers from „combination hair“ – thin hair that gets greasy on the roots but has dry ends – or anyone with thin and colored hair that needs more body, but wants to keep all the hydration in.

Price: 250 ml – 10 pounds (it lasts twice as other drugstore shampoos because of the thick consistency)


Ono što mi se posebno svidjelo kod ovog šampona je činjenica da je potrebna stvarno mala količina prilikom pranja kose. Najbolje rezultate dobijem kod dva ispiranja nakon čega kosa zaista bude škripavo čista, lagana, ali mekana i nikako ne isušena. Miris mu je divan – svjež – podsjeća me na limunsku travu ili mentu, a inače volim ovakve mirise kod proizvoda za kosu. Posebno je ugodan kod jutarnjih tuširanja, odmah me razbudi :) Šampon koristi salicilnu kiselinu i HydraLight tehnologiju kako bi kosu odignuo od tjemena i temeljito očistio od masnoća te ju učinio lepršavijom, lakšom. Obično kosu perem svaka dva dana, ali uz ovaj šampon može i duže biti čista. Sviđa mi se što iako je namijenjen masnoj i tankoj kosi, ne isušuje, nego naprotiv daje svilenkastu mekoću koja je skroz prirodna i lagana. Što se volumena tiče, primijetila sam da mi pomaže odignuti kosu od tjemena i daje mi najbolji volumen od svih šampona do sada isprobanih. Kosa mi je konačno istovremeno i čista i nahranjena, a to je efekt kojem sam se dugo vremena nadala.

Preporučila bih ga svima koji pate od „mješovite kose“ – one koja se masti na tjemenu, a suha je pri vrhovima. Posebno je dobar za tanku kosu, za kosu koja se brzo masti, no vjerujem da bi bio ok i na obojanoj kosi kakva je moja jer ne isušuje već vraća prirodnu hidrataciju uz suptilan volumen.

Cijena: 250 ml – 94 kune (duplo duže trajanje od klasičnih šampona radi gustoće proizvoda)

L'Oréal Professionnel Pro-Keratin Refill Masque


I have tried many hair masks in the past and the only one that left permanent impression on me was L'Oréal's Ever Rich mask. However, when I tried this one, I felt as if they're quite similar but with Pro-Keratin Refill I managed to get even better results. Since these professional hair products are so thick and long-lasting, I completely stopped purchasing drugstore hair masks. They're usually not that nourishing and I spend them way faster so the money saving isn't that effective. This product can last for months as you only need a walnut size amount for thicker hair. Pro-Keratin Refill Masque smells like typical hair salon products, a bit like almonds and vanilla but all in all quite pleasant. My hair feels soft, easy to comb through afterwards and it has that silk-shine that we all long for. No other hair mask has given me such shiny hair! I'm especially thankful that it doesn't weigh down my hair or make it greasy and it definitely helps my split ends and broken parts look and feel better, smoother.

I would recommend it to all hair types – even if you suffer from greasy hair. It's such a light, nourishing product that I doubt anyone would dislike it. However, it's probably best for damaged, longer and color-treated hair.

Price: 200 ml – 14 pounds


Isprobala sam puno maski za kosu u prošlosti i jedino je L'Oréal Ever Rich maska ostavila na mene trajniji utisak te sam ju dugo koristila. No, kad sam isprobala ovu, osjetila sam odmah sličnosti, ali i znatno poboljšanje kod Pro-Keratin Refill maske s kojom sam dobila još bolje rezultate. S obzirom da su ovi profesionalni proizvodi gusti i dugotrajni, skoro sam u potpunosti prestala kupovati drogerijske maske za kosu. Šampon još i znam potrošiti (volim Schaumu npr.), ali maske su mi najčešće prerijetke i ne njeguju kosu kako mi odgovara nego ju ostave punu silikona pri čemu lako popuca još više. Kad uzmemo u obzir da radi gustoće profesionalni proizvodi ponekad i duplo duže potraju, ne radi se o velikoj uštedi cijene kod kupovine drogerijskih, tako da mi je drago da sam uložila u ovu masku. Potrebna je količina veličine oraha za gušću i dužu kosu, a meni i manje od toga. Pro-Keratin Refill maska miriše na salonske, frizerske proizvode, pomalo orašasto s daškom vanilije, u svakom slučaju ugodno i lijepo. Kosa mi je nakon uporabe mekana, glatka, lako se raščešljava te ima onaj lijepi sjaj kojem svi težimo. Zapravo ni od jednog proizvoda mi nije kosa bila toliko sjajna prije. Uz to što mi pruža odličnu njegu, lagana je i ne masti kosu kao drugi keratinski proizvodi koji mi ju znaju otežati.

Preporučila bih ovu masku svim tipovima kose – čak i ako imate masnu, tanju kosu pomoći će u oporavku oštećenih dijelova, a neće ju dodatno otežati. Kosi pruža visoki, salonski sjaj i stvarno je odlična za posebne prilike, ali i za svakodnevnu uporabu.

Cijena: 200 ml – 120-130 kuna

Lancôme Hypnôse Volume-à-porter mascara

11 comments

I have reviewed many mascaras on this blog before and most of them, if you can remember, satisfied my needs and expectations. It doesn't necessarily mean I have low standards when it comes to mascaras, just means that my lashes are not that „high maintenance“ and they're quite easy to manage. However, it's still hard to find mascaras that I will choose no matter the occasion and that will have that „special“ place in my makeup travel bag. I was always satisfied with Bourjois's mascaras but Lancôme's original Hypnôse left a strong statement in the memory of my beauty palace and I was pretty sad when our relationship had to end. On one of the last Lancôme events (that youcould have read about here) we received this mascara for reviewing purposes and I grew more fond of it each day.

Recenzirala sam puno maskara na ovom blogu i s većinom sam, ako se sjećate, bila relativno zadovoljna po pitanju svojih potreba i očekivanja. To ne znači nužno da imam niske standarde kad su u pitanju maskare, već samo da su mi trepavice jednostavne za održavanje, prirodno dugačke i guste pa mi je dovoljno nešto da ih malo razdvoji, oboja i podigne. No usprkos tome, teško je naći maskaru koja će mi se stvarno svidjeti i koju ću koristiti u svakoj prilici u svojoj makeup torbi. Uvijek sam bila zadovoljna Bourjois maskarama, ali Lancôme originalna Hypnôse me oduševila na jedan poseban način i ostala trajno zapamćena te sam bila neizmjerno tužna kad sam se od nje napokon morala rastati. Na jednom od nedavnih Lancôme evenata (o kojem ste mogli čitati ovdje) dobili smo novu Lancôme Hypnôse Volume-à-porter na recenziju i moram priznati, svakim danom mi se sve više sviđala.


At first, it seems as an ordinary mascara in a gorgeous packaging. The effect was not too strong but as the time passed and I rotated it with few of the other mascaras I had been using, I started getting the general idea of it's quality by comparison. It leaves a slick trail of color on the lashes, it's never sticky and it manages to separate them without leaving too much residue. Once dry, it can stay in place for hours without losing the pigmentation or smudging – unlike some others I have been using at the time. The effect is quite natural, it won't get you Lady Gaga's lashes but you will get a romantic, seductive „I just woke up like this“ image which is something I personally prefer at all times really. The color is deep black and that's always a plus if you want to get that extra drama in your gaze.

Na prvu, činila se kao samo obična maskara za svakodnevnu uporabu, naravno unutar predivnog duplog pakiranja. Efekt koji je ostavljala na trepavicama nije bio ekstravagantan tako da sam je usporedno rotirala s još par drugih u periodu testiranja i tek onda sam zapravo uvidjela njenu „superiornost“ tj. prednosti koje ove druge nisu imale. Na prvu mi se svidio jak, pigmentiran trag kojeg ostavlja, a koji je opet mekan, svilenkast i ne stvara grudice na trepavicama. Vrlo je tamna, prava crna boja, što osobno uvijek volim radi malo dramatičnijeg efekta. Super razdvaja trepavice, a opet zaista ne ostavlja previše nereda iza sebe tj. uopće se ne razmazuje niti zgušnjava strukturu samih trepavica. Efekt je radi svega ovoga vrlo prirodan, a opet vidljiv, nećete dobiti Lady Gaga trepavice, nego jedan romantični, zavodljivi „I just woke up like this“ izgled koji je ustvari ono što i preferiram većinu vremena. Četkica je dugačka i tanka te zahvaća čak i one najsitnije dlačice što je uvijek pozitivno kod maskara, a posebno kad smo u žurbi.


The packaging in itself is truly gorgeous as the photographs will witness. As per usual when it comes to Lancôme it's a combination of luxury and sophisticated elegance that follows the brand throughout their whole production. High gloss bottle with champagne colored letters really is a gift on its own and I think any girl would be pleased with such a product. Lancôme Hypnôse Volume-à-porter mascara is easy to take off so you will have no trouble finishing your beauty sleep routine. This mascara has been enriched with the extract of rose stem cells which helps make the lashes healthier and thicker (it also smells like roses!).

Pakiranje je samo po sebi predivno kao što ćete vidjeti na fotografijama. Kao i inače kod Lancôme-a, kombinacija luksuza i sofisticirane elegancije koja prati brend kroz cijelu proizvodnju. Bočica visokog sjaja sa ugraviranim slovima boje šampanjca ukras je sama za sebe i sigurna sam da bi se svakom svidjela kao lijep poklon, a s obzirom da je ovo tip maskare kojeg će sve trepavice voljeti. 
Ova maskara obogaćena je ekstraktom matičnih stanica ruže što pridonosi gustoći i zdravlju trepavica (a i kao kod mnogih Lancôme proizvoda, miriše na ruže). Još da napomenem, Lancôme Hypnôse Volume-à-porter maskara lako se skida tako da nećete imati problema kod završetka svoje beauty rutine.

Wet 'n' Wild Mega Matte lipstick: Sand Storm

15 comments

It's such a strange feeling when you decide to review the product you already have and where the only difference is the color or the shade of the new one. Since I have reviewed Wet 'n' Wild's Mega Matte lipsticks in the past, I'm going to link to that review and repeat what has remain true to me when it comes to this particular product. I have to say that my opinions haven't changed one bit and I still consider them one of the best drugstore lipsticks you can find these days if you're into creamy matte consistency and bolder shades.

Neobičan je osjećaj recenzirati ponovno isti proizvod kad je jedina razlika sama nijansa, a kako sam već recenzirala Mega Matte ruževe branda Wet 'n' Wild, linkat ću ovdje na prošlu, detaljniju recenziju i ponoviti ono što je za mene ostalo istinito po pitanju ovog proizvoda. Moram reći da mi se mišljenje nije skoro uopće promijenilo te da ih i dalje smatram jednim od najboljih drogerijskih ruževa koji se mogu pronaći, posebno ako tražite kremastu mat teksturu i nešto jače, vidljivije boje.


The shade I'm reviewing today is called „Sand Storm“ and in my opinion, fits perfectly with the autumn weather that's coming upon us. I have never worn these coppery, brick colored lipsticks before but this one caught my attention instantly and I think it's a perfect transitional shade for this late summer/early autumn period. I would describe it as reddish brown as it definitely has red undertones beneath the warm brown. It's not too dark so I would recommend it for both night & daytime events, and I found out if fits perfectly with warmer bronzers or terracotta colored blushes. Also when it comes to eyeshadows, I like to pair it up with olive greens & golds. As I have already stated in my previous review of these colors – they are long-lasting, very creamy and easy to apply, soft and natural on the lips. I haven't noticed any negative side effects except perhaps for the packaging that get's easily messed up but if you're as careful as I am, it won't be a problem. One of the huge benefits of all Wet 'n' Wild products is their price – they're affordable to most but the quality doesn't fall back. 5+

Boja koju danas predstavljam nosi naziv „Sand Storm“ i po mom mišljenju, savršeno se spaja s jesenskim vremenom koje nam se sve više približava. Nisam prije često nosila ovakve bakrene, ciglaste nijanse, ali odmah mi se svidio izgled ove boje jer ju smatram savršenom prijelaznom nijansom za ovaj period kraja ljeta i početka jeseni. Opisala bih ju kao crvenkasto smeđu jer definitivno u sebi sadrži i crvene tonove ispod ovih toplih smeđih. Zapravo se radi o pravoj boji cigle koja se možda neće svidjeti svakom, ali mislim da je zabavno eksperimentirati u ovom periodu godine s nekim drugačijim bojama. Tako ju ja rado kombiniram s rumenilom boje terakote, smeđim, zlatnim ili maslinasto-zelenim sjenilima i odjećom u sličnim bojama. Kao što sam i u prethodnoj recenziji istaknula, ovi ruževi su dugotrajni, vrlo kremasti, mat finiša i lako se nanose te su prirodno meki i ugodni na usnama. Nisam primijetila nikakve negativne strane ovih ruževa osim možda pakiranja koja su lako lomljiva i lako se zaprljaju, ali opet ako ste oprezni kao što sam ja, to neće biti problem. Još jedna velika i sigurna sam, za mnoge, najveća prednost Wet 'n' Wild proizvoda je cijena – gotovo svatko si ih može  priuštiti, a kvaliteta ne zaostaje za drugim brendovima.

DRESSLINK clothes & jewelry review!

24 comments

I guess you all remember my Dresslink wishlist post - well I guess some of the wishes do come true and I recently received three items from their website for reviewing purposes. At first I was happy at how fast the items arrived and then fascinated that the sizes were all ok for me (I ordered asian XL which is equivalent to M/38 in Europe). I received a beige long shirt/tunic with a belt, then a dark wine colored red shirt and a necklace that looks quite fearsome and I love it. The materials are the same as in stores here, viscose and polyester mostly. I will show you each item separately so you can judge for yourself whether it's worth ordering!

Vjerujem da se svi sjećate mog Dresslink wishlist posta u kojem sam izrazila želju za isprobavanjem određenih stvari s te web stranice - izgleda da se dobre želje ispunjavaju te sam tako dobila priliku za isprobati tri stvari u svrhu recenzije. Prvo mi je bilo neizmjerno drago što je paket stigao dosta brzo i u super stanju, a zatim što su veličine odgovarale (uzela sam za svaki slučaj XL što je na azijskom tržištu kao 38-M kod nas). Dobila sam dugačku bež tuniku s remenom, tamnocrvenu bluzu i statement zlatnu ogrlicu s bodljikavim uzorkom. Materijali su slični kao i u našim dućanima, većinom je to viskoza i poliester. Nadalje ću u postu pokazati svaku pojedinačnu stvar da ih sami procijenite i vidite jesu li vrijedne naručivanja!


This item was one of the first ones on my wishlist and I really wanted something similar for quite some time now. However, I could never find anything decent in stores here. I actually found a similar one in Mango but it was overpriced (around 60-70$) so I gave it up instantly. However, Dresslink offers much  cheaper prices for similar quality and I recently found out that many of my work colleagues shop there. When it comes to this particular tunic, I especially liked the material, it's light and looks gorgeous when paired with black tights. The brown belt makes a lovely company and immediately reduces your waist size.

Ovo mi je bila jedna od prvih stvari na wishlisti i dugo vremena sam si željela nešto slično nabaviti. Kako god, nisam ništa pronalazila ovdje u dućanima, osim jednom u MANGO-u gdje je bilo pretjerano skupo (oko 500 kn) pa sam odustala. Dresslink nudi mnogo niže cijene za ne toliko lošiju kvalitetu i baš sam se iznenadila kad sam saznala da i kolegice s posla kupuju tamo ili u sličnim dućanima (tipa Ebay, Romwe...). Što se tiče same tunike, sviđa mi se lagani i prozračni materijal, nije prozirna što je odlično, a lijepo pada na neke crne tajice. Uz smeđi remen izgleda stvarno dobro i vizualno sužava struk.






I didn't have any expectations out of this tunic but it turned out to be more than ok. It's double layered so you won't need anything underneath cause it's not transparent. Quite comfortable but still looks professional, I especially like to wear it with the necklace that I received. I usually wouldn't choose this color for this time of year, but as it turns out, I don't have many burgundy shirts and it's such a classic color.

Nisam imala nikakvih očekivanja od ove majice pa sam ju uzela baš za probu i stvarno se ugodno iznenadila. Duplo je podstavljena tako da vam ne treba potkošulja, niti će biti prozirna. Izgleda pristojno, lijepo pada na tijelu, stvarno odličan komad odjeće za smiješnu cijenu. Meni osobno najbolje izgleda uz neku veću ogrlicu (kao npr ovu koju sam dobila u paketu), na neke bež hlače i sako. Inače ne bi odabrala ovakvu boju za ljeto, ali bordo je uvijek klasična i nemam puno odjevnih predmeta u toj nijansi.






Oh my god. As soon as I saw this, I knew I had to have it. I never used to like jewelry, especially the visible one, but now I'm all about shiny things and statement pieces. This necklace immediately reminded me of one of my favorite tv shows - Game of Thrones - because it looks regal, royal, but fierce at the same time (queen Cersei would approve, I imagine). It looks great when paired with anything that is simple and monochrome.

Dođe tako trenutak kad ugledate neki predmet i iracionalno pomislite da mora biti vaš. Nisam nikad prije voljela nakit, posebno ne ovaj ogromni, ali u zadnje vrijeme mi se sve više sviđa i stvarno nekako da dozu stila i podiže svaku kombinaciju. Ova ogrlica me odmah podsjetila na moju dragu Igru prijestolja jer izgleda nekako opako, a opet kraljevski, kao tron za kojeg se svi bore (sigurna sam da bi se i kraljici Cersei svidjela). Izgleda odlično u kombinaciji s monokromnim detaljima, kao što su jednostavne bluze ili majice.
