EBAY FINDS #1 ~ EYE BRUSHES

Hello girls!!


Today I have a really exciting post for all of you. In December I bought some things on eBay and when I saw this brushes and reviews that buyers wrote about them I had to pick some for myself too. 






Now let me tell you what I think about them :)


I only pick four of this brushes and I really like all of them. They came in around 2 weeks. Shipping is free. You can check them out here

They are all the same price and that is 3,87$ (around 3,50 €). Definitely not the cheapest brushes on eBay, but you get a great quality brushes for that price. 



WHAT I LIKE ABOUT THEM:

- blend and apply eyeshadows beautifully
- easy to use
- very soft
- easy to clean
- they are white (you can see when they are dirty or how much eyeshadow is on them)



WHAT I DON'T LIKE ABOUT THEM:

- at first some of the hairs feel out (but after a couple days of using them it stopped)



I HAVE:

1. EYE SHADER (239) 
    This is quite a big brush but I love that because it applies eyeshadow all over the eyelid perfectly. 







2. PENCIL BRUSH (219)
    This is a great brush for applying eyeshadows in the crease or outer corner and also for blending eyeshadows on the lower lash line. 








3. BLENDING BRUSH (222)
    This one is my favourite. Is a perfect sized blending brush. Blends quickly and beautifully. 








4. BLENDING BRUSH (217)
    This brush is also great for blending. It's a little bit flatter and wider but does the same job as 222. 






COMPARISON:


 217 & 222

239, 219, 222, 217





PS: if you are a Slovenian blogger and you haven't seen my giveaway yet check it out (I will be announcing the winner next week)




Hope you like this review and thanks for visiting my blog <3

ESSENCE HAUL & MINI REVIEWS (new "nude" collection)

Hello beauties!!

This month I have been pretty bad with my money because I visited Muller three times! And I think you all know when you just go in for one thing but than come out with much more.
I bought quite a lot of Essence product and most of them are from their new "nudes" line so I decided to do a haul and also a review on some of them.

Lets start!




ESSENCE SUN CLUB MATT BRONZING POWDER (blondes - light skin)

This bronzer is amazing!! It is not to dark, not orange and it blends like nothing else. It also smells like summer to me haha. You also get a lot of product in it (15g). Love it for an every day and it is probably my new favourite bronzer. 


ESSENCE SOO GLOW! CREAM TO POWDER HIGHLIGHT (20 bright up your life)

I can't tell you much about this highlighter because I don't have a final opinion about it yet. Sometimes I feel like it looks great but next time it looks to shimmery. Will let you know what I think about it soon. 


                    




ESSENCE EYESHADOW (35 party all night - metallic effect)

This eyeshadow looks so pretty in packaging an swatched on my hand but I haven't wear it on my eyes yet because it is more of a going out at night eyeshadow for me. But it looks very pretty and I'm sure I will love it. 



(it a lot more metallic than it looks here)



And now products form the new "nude collection"  :)



ESSENCE I <3 NUDE BAKED EYESHADOWS

01 VANILLA SUGAR
this one is a really light white to cream eyeshadow great for brow bone and inner corner highlight. It is quite pigmented and very smooth. I really like it!

04 SWEET LIKE CHOCOLATE
this is my favourite shade. Its light brown and also a bit golden. Great for every day make up just all over the eyelid. If I want it to be a little bit more pigmented I wet my brush before applying it. 

06 COFFEE BEAN
this one is also a very beautiful dark brown shade. I love it in the crease or outer corner. It doesn't apply nicely if I use it with a wet brush but with dry one it applies beautifully. 

Over all I really like this eyeshadows and I will buy some more for sure. 






ESSENCE LIPSTICK 05 COOL NUDE

This is my first Essence lipstick and I love it. It is very similar to my natural lip colour. It applies really nicely also if I have dry lips. It is not very long lasting but that doesn't really bother me. It's great! 
(it is a bit more pink on the picture than it really is). 






ESSENCE I <3 TRENDS NAIL POLISH (03 I'm lost in you)

Love this nail polish. Such a gorgeous nude, pale, pink, brown colour. I don't know it this ones have different formula than regular ones because this nail polish didn't chip for 5 days. And also only one coat gave enough pigmentation. 





   
Hope you like this post and thank for visiting my blog <3

MY 2014 FAVOURITES

Hello beauties!!

Today I have a really exciting post for you all. I will show you all the products that I was absolutely in love with in year 2014. I don't have a lot of them because I'm only gonna show you the ones that really stood out for me. Lets start!



SKIN & HAIR CARE



NIVEA WATERPROOF EYE MAKE UP REMOVER

Absolutely love this products. Probably my eye make up remover ever. I rub it on my eyes with my fingers and remove it with water. It removes everything. love it!!


NIVEA MAKE UP REMOVING WIPES FOR SENSITIVE AND DRY SKIN

At first I really liked the same one just for normal skin but they hurt my eyes a bit and that is why I started using this ones and I love them. They remove all of my make up (also eye make up), make my skin feel really clean and they also don't hurt my eyes. Great product!


AVON ADVANCE TECHNIQUES DAILY SHINE DRY ENDS SERUM 


This serum is another great product that I discovered in 2014. The ends of my hair are really dry because i straighten them and this product really makes them soft and shiny. Best hair serum I ever tried and it cheap too.





MAKE UP




GARNIER  BB CREAM MIRACLE SKIN PERFECTOR

Favourite BB cream for sure. I love to wear it especially in spring and summer. Make my skin look healthy and glowy. It gives light coverage and it's great for normal to dry skin. 


BOURJOIS HEALTHY MIX SERUM

Love this one too! It sits great on my skin. Doesn't even look like I'm wearing foundation. It gives light to medium coverage (it's buildable). It also makes my skin look healthy and even. 


REVLON COLOURSTAY CONCEALER

This one is probably the best concealer I have ever tried. It still doesn't cover my dark under eye circles completely but comes close. It doesn't look cakey, doesn't get into the fine lines under my eye. It is a great concealer probably the best one from Slovenian drugstores for me. 




SLEEK CONTOUR KIT

Love it! The bronzer is beautiful not orange at all. It's great for when my skin is pale or tanned because it is not to pigmented and I can build it up easily. And I also really like the highlighter. It gives a beautiful glow to my skin. 


ESSENCE EYE BROW SHADOWS

I really like the shadows in this product, not so much the brush. They are a great colour match for my brows, easy to use and doesn't fade of. Great eye brow product for such a low price. 








CATRICE 400 MY FIRST COPPERWARE PARTY & ESSENCE 03 LAST NIGHT A COOKIE SAVED MY LIFE EYESHADOWS

This two eyeshadows are the best ones that I discovered last year. I love them because of the colour, great pigmentation, no fall outs and staying on my eyes all day. Love them and totally recommend to all of you. 


MYBELLINE COLOUR TATTOO IN ON AND ON BRONZE

I just love this one for lazy days :D It is very pigmented, stays all day and the colour is beautiful too. Great product!!


MYBELLINE ROCKET MASCARA



Hands down the best mascara I have ever used. At first it is a bit to wet for me but when it dries a little it is magical! It separates my lashes, makes them longer and gives a ton of volume. Love ti!!


I GO! TO HEAVEN PALETTE



I loved using this palette in 2014! I really like that it has a mat highlight and crease shade and a lot of beautiful shimmery eyeshadows. They don't have any fall outs and are very pigmented. Great palette!



NAILS

As you know a love all of my Essence and Catrice nail polishes because they are easy to apply, have great pigmentation and don't dry up in the bottle for a very long time (especially Catrice ones). But the ones that I will show you I used the most in 2014. 


ESSENCE 168 LOVE ME, CUPCAKE! & ESSENCE 146 THAT'S WHAT I MINT! & CATRICE 030 MEET ME AT CORAL ISLAND



This three nail polishes are great for spring and summer. Love me cupcake is a beautiful pastel lavender colour, That's what I mint is a pastel mint and Meet me at coral island is a great coral nail polish.



CATRICE 24 THE GLAMOUREX FACTOR & AVON TWEED 



And this two were my most worn nail polishes in Autumn and Winter. Catrice one is a beautiful bronze shimmery metallic shade and Avon one is a deep burgundy red.




AVON NAIL EXPERT GEL STRENGHT BASE COAT

I love this product! Is a great base coat for any nail polish and it also made my nails much stronger and less peeling. Love it!!


EBELINE NAIL POLISH REMOVER IN A POT

Love love love this product!! Removes nail polish quickly and completely. Also very good at removing glittery nail polishes. And is cheap too.



BRUSHES



REAL TECHNIQUES BLUSH BRUSH

My favourite brush for applying bronzer. It is perfect size, pick up the right amount of product, easy to wash, doesn't loose bristles and also very soft!


REAL TECHNIQUES DUO FIBER CONTURE BRUSH

Love this one for setting my concealer. What I said about Real Techniques blush brush I can say about this one too. 


REAL TECHNIQUES MIRACLE COMPLEXION SPONGE

Loveee this one to the moon and back haha. It is the best thing for applying foundation and concealer. Makes them look so natural and not over done.It is also easy to clean.




ESSENCE BRUSHES

Loveeee them so much!!  I use the red one for applying eyeshadow all over the eyelid and brow bone and the purple one for applying eyeshadow in the crease or outer corner. I have been using this two for over a year and they are still in perfect shape.


REAL TECHNIQUES DUO FIBER EYE BRUSH

Love this one for blending the eyeshadows. I also really like the Essence blending brush but this one is just a little bit softer. Have been using it all year!



And that is all for my favourites of 2014 post. Hope you like it and thanks for visiting my blog <3

DECEMBER FAVOURITES

Hello guys!!



 First let me wish you a happy, healthy, successful, full of love year 2015!!  
Year 2014 went by so quickly. I started my blog in June and it felt like I was doing it for a month. I hope that this year my posts will be more interesting and better quality. If you have any recommendations for blog post that you will like to see comment below.

But now lets start with my December favourites. 



1. L'OREAL TRUE MATCH FOUNDATION



I wanted this foundation for so long because I read some very good reviews about it. I bought it in the beginning of December and I have been wearing it almost every day since. I really like how lightweight it feels on my skin even though it gives medium to high coverage (it is buildable). It also gives a nice healthy looking finish to the skin. Love it! 





2. L'OREAL LUMI MAGIQUE PURE LIGHT PRIMER



I also bought this product this month and fell in love with it. I love using it with more matt foundation (like L'oreal true match and Max Factor 3 in 1) because it just gives a great base and my skin look less dry when using it. 



3. KONAD EYEBROW PENCIL



I haven't been using this pencil for a long time because of Essence brow powder that I also really like. But this month I started using it again and really enjoyed it. I don't know what changed but before I didn't like it this much. I guess I just like the finish that a pencil makes more than the finish of a powder and that is why I have to buy some more eye brow pencils and see if there are better ones. If you have any recommendations tell me please.



4. ESSENCE NAIL POLISH IN WE LOVE WINTER HOLIDAYS & WILD  WHITE WAYS 

I have been loving this two shades this month. I think that they are perfect for winter.  You can see the green one in action here and the white one here.



5. CATRICE LONGLASTING WATERPROOF EYE PENCIL



I bought this pencil to put it on my upper water line/tight line and I love it. Because it is waterproof it doesn't smudge also if my eyes get a bit watery due to the cold wind. It also have a sharpener and it's quite cheep. Great product!



6. URBAN DECAY NAKED PALLET



I'm probably the most lucky girl in the world for getting this pallet haha. My friend got it for present but she doesn't really wear eyeshadows so she kindly gave it to me. And I love it. Especially sin, naked, buck, half baked and toasted. The only bad thing is that the shimmery shades have some fall outs but that doesn't bother me because eyeshadows are so pigmented and smooth.



7. Z-PALETTE




I decided to depot my MUA eyeshadows. I also wanted to do a post about that but because it was quite a struggle to do it I decided not to. If you want to depot any of your eyeshadows this video is very helpful.  I ordered my Z palette on Ličila.si and I love it. I didn't expect it to be so well made. You also get a couple of magnets with it.

(I don't have all of my MUA eyeshadows in it yet)



8. H&M NECKLACE AND RINGS



I was probably wearing this necklace all month. I just love it. Is small, gold and looks great with most of my outfits. And it was only around 2€. 
And this two rings I also wore a lot. One is a regular ring and the smaller one is a knuckle ring. They were also around 2€.




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