BALEA HAUL

Hello!!


I love Balea products. I tried quite a lot of them and I never really hated any. But I haven't tried their products for a while so I decided to go to DM just to buy Balea products and I ended up with six of them. 


BALEA MICELAR WATER & BALEA MAKE UP REMOVING OIL


I absolutely love the make up removing oil. It feels just like an oil but when you mix it with water it turns into a cream and it's very easy to wash off. It removes all make up (also make up that is usually very hard to get off - Kiko eyeshadow stick, liquid lipstick...) and doesn't irritate my skin or eyes. 

The micelar water is also good but not the best (my favourite is still the one from L'oreal ). It is great at removing make up but it turns into a slight foam and stings my eyes just a little bit. Because of that I don't use it to remove make up, but it is great for refreshing and cleaning my skin in the morning. 


BALEA NATURE NIGHT CREAM & BALEA NATURE DAY CREAM


Night cream is a repurchase because I love it and I already wrote a review about it that you can read here


And the day cream I love just as much. It feels so nice on the skin and makes it soft and moisturised. It sinks into skin very fast so it's great for applying makeup on top too.


BALEA AQUA SERUM 


This serum is another repurchase. I really like it because it does everything that a serum in my opinion should. It moisturises my skin so nicely (I can see the difference in my skin when I'm using it and when I'm not especially around my mouth where my skin is very dry).It is quite watery but it sinks into the skin very quickly so I can use it in the morning (before make up) and in the evenings. 


BALEA LIP OIL 


I'm not really sure if I like it or not. It is really good for the lips because it moisturise them and makes them soft but it's quite sticky and it's a hair magnet because they stick on it immediately.


PS: tell me which is your favourite Balea product :)

EBAY FINDS #2: FACE BRUSH REVIEW

Hello beauties!




Before I write anything about this brush I'm going to say: go on eBay and buy it!! It costs only 2,35$  (around 2,1€) and is freaking amazing! Let me start with the review now so you will see why I love it so much!

I love buying all sorts of things on eBay but especially brushes because they have some very good ones for such a low price and this brush is definitely one of them.


At first I toughed it will be a bit hard to hold while applying make up because it's quite short and "fat". But it's actually very handy because you can really buff in the foundation and it's not hard to hold at all. 

Handle is made out of white plastic and gold metal and bristles are synthetic.


What makes this brush so good are short and very packed bristles (it is quite similar to Real Techniques Expert Face brush but it's wider, not so hard and bristles are shorter). That's why it blends foundation and concealer so quickly (I was really surprised how fast it blends) and beautifully (it doesn't leave any hair and I don't have to go over with my finger because it blends foundation so nicely into my skin). It doesn't soak any product and feels great on the skin too. 


This is my third foundation brush and it's by far my favourite (I already own Real Techniques one and Nanshy Flat Top Brush). 

I really do recommend this brush to all of you because I like it a lot. You can buy it here

AVON HAIR OIL & HAIR SERUM REVIEW

Hello beauties!!


Avon has some amazing products for hair that I absolutely love. Both of these are my second ones because I repurchased them immediately after running out. 


ADVANCE TECHNIQUES MOROCCAN ARGAN OIL 


This is an amazing leave in hair oil that you apply on your wet hair and don't wash it off. 
It smells very good and it's golden in colour but it doesn't stain hair or anything.
I love this hair oil because it makes my hair so soft, silky and not dry and they stay like that for days. 
I usually use three pumps after every wash.  


ADVANCE TECHNIQUES DRY ENDS SERUM 

  
This is a serum that you put on the ends of your hair and leave it like that. 
It smells amazing just like the oil and it is clear. 
I have quite dry ends and this serum makes them everything but dry and they stay like that whole day. They look shiny and healthy. 
I use two pumps after I style (straighten or curl) my hair. 


I don't know what they put in this two products because they are absolutely amazing and for such a great price (3,60€ for each on sale that they have all the time). I recommend them to all of you no matter what type of hair you have. 



That is it for this post. Hope you liked it and thanks for visiting my blog <3

BATISTE DRY SHAMPOO MEDIUM & BRUNETTE REVIEW

Hello guys!


I was pleasantly surprised when I found Batiste dry shampoo in Slovenian Muller. Well they only had three to pick from but at least they have them. 

I hate dry shampoos that leave white residue on my hair so I picked the one with a hint of colour Medium & Brunette. 


It's a perfect colour for my hair and I don't feel it on either which is great because I'm really picky when it comes to dry shampoo because they make my scalp itch and this one doesn't at all.  

Overall I really like it and I recommend it to all of you brunettes.

YES TO! PRODUCTS REVIEW

Hello lovelies!


I purchased these products about a month ago and I tested them enough so that I can share my opinion about them with you today. I was very interested in them because they are made with healthy/natural ingredients and they just interested me a lot. But I must say I wasn't very disappointed. 


YES TO CARROTS EXFOLIATING CLEANSER




I like this cleanser a lot. I use it around two times a week after I remove my make up. It has a white cream to gel consistency and a lot of small (sand like) particles which really exfoliate my skin but are not to harsh at all. My skin is soft and smooth after using it (it is great for dry skin!!). 


YES TO CARROTS GENTLE CLEANSING WIPES 


These wipes were the biggest disappointment for me. Firstly they claim to be gentle but are not at all. They feel quite harsh on my skin and they also make my eye area burn. And secondly they don't remove my make up very well (I had to use three wipes to remove it and with Nivea cleansing wipes I only need one). 


YES TO TOMATOES DAILY CLARIFYING CLEANSER



This one disappointed me the second I opened the box because it leaked and got everywhere and also a lot ran out. It also has a very strong smell that feels quite artificial and I don't feel like it does anything to my skin. I has a gel consistency and it's clear. 


As I said I'm quite disappointed with this purchase because I was very excited and now I only like one product.

AVON HAUL

Hello girls!


After a very long time a finally got an opportunity to order some things from Avon (I feel like Avon was way more popular a couple of years ago when everybody had their catalogues now I don't know anybody who has it. Luckily my mother's coworker does so I got me some goodies). 


AVON ADVANCE TECHNIQUES MOROCCAN ARGAN OIL


I've had this oil already around two years ago and I absolutely loved it and I still do. I will do a more in depth review of it soon so keep an eye on my blog if you are interested. 


AVON NAILWEAR PRO+ NAIL POLISHES  - MODERN ROMANCE

 Tender & Desire

I have a few of these nail polishes already and I adore them. So of course I had toget me some more. I picked Tender and Desire and they are both very beautiful nude shades. 


AVON COLOUR TREND LIPSTICK - RAD GLAM




This is a beautiful red lipstick. It is a bit darker than a true red colour which I love. I wore it already once and I like it a lot. Feels nice on the lips and it's also quite long lasting (3-4 hours without reapplying).

CHOCOLATE KISS - MY CURRENT FAV LIPSTICK

Hello beauty lovers!


Today I decided to share with you my current favourite lipstick. It goes perfectly with my style and I absolutely love it. I know I will be wearing it all winter and probably in spring too haha. 

It's Catrice - 150 Chocolate kiss  ultimate stay lipstick. A perfect brown shade with a bit of a red undertone.  


I love that it has a satin to almost matt finish but it's not very drying on the lips. It also quite long lasting but I have to reapply it after eating/drinking.  

It's very pigmented and also very easy to apply for such a dark lipstick.

NOTD - MY FAVOURITE NUDES

Hello lovelies!!


I have been wearing dark nail polishes a lot lately so it was about time to give some attention to my nude ones too. 

This two nail polishes are both from Essence The Nudes collection. First one called 09 YOU'RE SO BEAUTIFUL is a gorgeous beige shade and the second one called 03 I'M LOST IN YOU is a beautiful nude-pink.

The formula is very thin so two or three coats are necessary for me. The brush is a bit rounded which makes them very easy to apply.

NYX HIGHLIGHT & CONTOUR PRO PALETTE REVIEW

Hello guys!!


I wanted this palette for so long but I didn't find any on line store that would sell it with a reasonable shipping cost to Slovenia. And then they got NYX products on feelunique.com and I immediately bought it. I tested it enough to share my opinion with you so lets start!



FIRST/TOP ROW

Top row is a highlighting row. You get two shimmery highlights and two matt ones. 

The first one is called ICE QUEEN and it is a white shimmery shade. It is a very nice shimmery highlight that gives you a nice glow and it's not to glittery at all. I don't use this one on it's own because it is to light for me but I do mix it with the other shade from this palette and they look great together.  

The second shade is a matt pinky powder called SOFT LIGHT and the third one is slightly yellow matt powder called CREAM. They are very fine mild and great for setting concealer under the eyes because they give a bit more brightness to this area. I mix them together and apply under my eyes on my chin and slightly on my forehead.

And the last shade from the first row is a beautiful peachy shimmery highlight called NECTAR. Formula wise it's the same as ice queen but I do wear this one on it's one because it is not to light at all. 

(ice queen, soft light, cream, nectar) 


SECOND/BOTTOM ROW 

As you can see on the picture the bottom row is a bronze/contour row. It consist of three bronzing and one contour shade. This powders are very fine mild and very pigmented so I have to blend them quite a lot but once blended they look very natural and beautiful.

The first one is a matt, light to medium bronzing shade called TAN. It's is a perfect all year round bronzer. 

Second shade called TOFFEE is also a bronzing one but it is slightly darker and shimmery. I only wear shimmery bronzers in summer and I think this one will be perfect because it gives a beautiful sun kissed bronzed look to the face. 

Third one called SCULPT is a matt brown shade but it's more of a cool brown (not muddy) so it is perfect for contouring. I love to use this shade with my Ecotools blush brush because they make a perfect contour together. And this shade is not to intense so it's perfect for everyday use too. 

And the last shade from this palette is a very dark slightly shimmery bronzing shade called HOLLOW. Right now I can't use it because it just to dark for me but I might be able to use it in the summer when I get a tan. 

 (tan, toffee, sculpt, hollow)


All this powders are very fine mild and very pigmented. They blend and apply beautifully. My favourites are cream, nectar and sculpt. 



You can also remove shades from the pallet and put you favourites in  z-palettes or something like that (I plan on doing that so that I can take them with me when I'm travelling). 


It costs 25,38€ and you can get it here


I would totally recommend this palette to all of you who like to experiment with contouring & highlighting and also to those who want very nice face powders.

ECOTOOLS TAPERED BLUSH BRUSH REVIEW

Hello beauty lovers!


I already shown this brush in my feelunique haul but because it is so good I decided to do a separate review about it. Lets start!




This brush is made out of bamboo and recycled materials which make it so lightweight and also very soft (on of the softest brushes I ever used). 




It's tapered on the end into I slight point and also from the sides.
Because of that it's great for contouring. It makes a perfect line under the cheek bones but because it is very soft it doesn't make the contour to sharp and unnatural looking. 

And it's also great for bronzing because it blends perfectly.

As the name of the brush suggest it's probably very good for applying blush too. But I don't wear blushes so I can't claim that.  



That is it for this review. Thanks for visiting my blog <3

PLUMS & BERRIES

Hello lovelies!



As I said a couple times on my blog fall is my favourite time of the year also for wearing make up. I love berry and plum shades and I only wear them this time of the year so I toughed it would be perfect to dedicate one post just to them. Lets start!


EYES

 
I love a bit of plum/berry on my eye. Usually nothing crazy like smokey eyes but just a nice every day fall look. My favourite shades are ESSENCE - GALSTONBERRY (beautiful shimmery berry eyeshadow), ESSENCE - KEEP CALM AND BERRY ON (gorgeous plum satin shade) and CATRICE - PLUM UP THE JAM (very pretty light plum satin eyeshadow). 

TOP TO BOTTOM - plum up the jam & glastonberry (more pigmented than on photo) & keep calm and berry on


LIPS
These two are actually the only berry/plum shades of lip products that I have and I absolutely love them. Lip pencil is ESSENCE - HONEY BERRY (true berry-dark pink shade) and lipstick is CATRICE - PLUM & BASE (gorgeous dark plum shade - satin finish, almost matt on my dry lips).
(great for wearing them together too)

NAILS
I love me some nice berry/dark plum nails and these three nail polishes are just perfect. First one is CATRICE - VINO TINTO (beautiful dark plum shade without any shimmer). Second is CATRICE - FOR SOME IT'S PLUM (very pretty berry-violet shade) and the third one is CATRICE - FIRST CLASS UP GRAPE (quite similar to vino tinto just not so dark and it's shimmery).

FALL FAVOURITES TAG

Hello guys!!


I wanted to do a fall oriented tag for a couple of weeks but I didn't find any interesting until this one that I found on YouTube. I think that questions are really fun to answer so I decided to do it today. Lets start!


FAVOURITE CANDLE
I love candles especially in this time of year. My favourites are from Muller (Bolsius) and my favourite scents are Baked Cookies and Plum & Almond pie.

FAVOURITE LIP COLOUR
Definitely Catrice - Plum & Base. It's a perfect plum-berry coloured lipstick.   

FAVOURITE DRINK
I love to drink tea all year round but in Autumn when weather gets colder a nice cup of tea feels even better. My favourite is black Indian tea and orange-cinnamon tea. 

FAVOURITE NAIL COLOUR
I especially love warm orange-brown colours and also dark plums (for example Catrice - Red Goes Nuts (here) and Catrice - Vino Tinto).  

FAVOURITE CLOTHING ITEM
I love boots, scarfs, coats but my favourite must be a good leather jacket.

FAVOURITE FALL MOVIE
I love watching horror movies especially around Halloween time. I love so many I can't pick only one. I really liked Anabelle, Insidious, Conjuring... 

FAVOURITE FALL TV SHOW
Supernatural!! I have been watching this show for so many years and in October season 11 came out so it must be my favourite TV show for this fall.  

FAVOURITE FOOD
I absolutely love chestnuts. I wait all year long for fall just so I can eat as much chestnuts as I possibly can haha.  

FAVOURITE HALLOWEEN COSTUME
Well I don't really celebrate Halloween or go to Halloween parties but if I would I probably dress as a witch because I absolutely love them - films about witches are my favourite.  



That is it for this post. Hope you liked it and thanks for visiting <3

TOP 10 DRUGSTORE REPURCHASES

Hello lovelies!!


Today I decided to do a posts about 10 products from the drugstore that I absolutely love and repurchased many times already or am planing to repurchase immediately when I ran out of them. Lets start!


MAKE UP 


I only included base products in here because I go through them faster than for example bronzers or eyeshadows that I will probably not use up for a very long time.

GARNIER MIRACLE SKIN PERFECTOR BB CREAM

Absolutely love this BB cream. It makes my skin look so fresh and glowy. Doesn't settle into fine lines or shows on dry patches. Already repurchase it for three times (and my mom loves it too).  


BOURJOIS HEALTHY MIX SERUM

Probably my favourite foundation. It is great for dry skin because it doesn't shows on dry areas. It makes my skin look very healthy and glowy. It gives more coverage than Garnier BB cream but formula wise they are very similar. Already repurchase it once.  

RIMMEL FIX&PERFECT PRIMER

Love this primer. It makes my skin more smooth and hydrated and foundation applies beautifully on top of it. Just ordered a new one yesterday on asos.

CATRICE EVEN SKIN TONE FOUNDATION

I don't have this foundation for a very long time but I know I will repurchase it because I'll probably use it up very soon since I use it almost every day. It gives a better coverage then Bourjois healthy mix serum so I use it when my skin is not looking it's best or when I want my skin to look a bit more matt. Even though it has a more matt/satin finish it doesn't makes my dry skin look cakey. 

CATRICE LIQUID CAMOUFLAGE CONCEALER

The best concealer I ever used. It covers very well and doesn't look cakey under my eyes. Already repurchased it!


SCENTS 


NIVEA INVISIBLE BLACK & WHITE DEODORANT

This is my all time favourite deodorant. Smells great, doesn't shows on any clothes and makes you smell great for a whole day (also if you are running or when it is very hot). Repurchased it for many times already. 

MINI PERFUMES

Loveeee them!! They smell amazing and are so cheap (around 3€). They are Eau de Parfume (most of the cheap perfumes are not) and that's why they last for a very long time on me.  Already repurchased a bunch of them (my mom loves them too). 


TOOLS 


ESSENCE STUDIO NAILS 4 IN 1 PROFI FILE 

This nail file work great for me. It shorten, shape, smooth and polish my nails very nicely. Already repurchased it.

ESSENCE BRUSH (FLAT/SHADER)

Love this brush. I always use it to apply eyeshadows all over my eyelid. It grabs eyeshadows great and it's perfect size. As you can see I have two but I might need one or two more haha.  

NIVEA FACE WIPES FOR DRY/SENSITIVE SKIN
 
I doesn't have a picture because I don't have them right now because I'm trying out some other ones but let me tell you non of them beats Nivea. They remove make up perfectly and don't irritate my skin or eyes. I repurchased them many times already. 



Tell me which is your favourite drugstore product :)
