Autumn Picks #2

sreda, oktober 28, 2015


Although it looks like a standard neutral eyeshadow palette, it does have a very autumnal vibe and the real stand out shade here is the deep burgundy called Sexy. I've never really worn red on my eyes, but this one just works without making you look like someone punched you in the face. Nude'Tude is a fantastic palette that really impressed me with its quality and it's just as good as Urban decay ones, except it's quite a lot cheaper. The eyeshadows are very smooth, pigmented and blend so well that it's truly a joy using it. 

I wanted to include a budget neutral palette, granted the Chocolate version one would fit here better, however, the quality of that one just isn't on pair with the rest, so I picked the original Absolute Nude because it has a basic arrange of shades for a nice bronzy-brown smoky eye that will fit nicely into autumn. These are still my favourite budget palettes, the eyeshadows are nicely pigmented, they blend ok and lasts decently on the lids.


 I love the shade of this. It's such a beautiful warm almost coppery bronze brown that is quite dark and fits perfectly into autumn. However, it's not the best quality cream eyeshadow because it creases a lot and it's better use is as a base. The texture is so soft, almost like a cross between a mousse and liquid eyeshadow, plus it's very pigmented, so I only need to touch the surface very lightly or I end up with too much product.

KIKO Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadow
06 Golden Brown and 38 Golden Taupe
I adore these. They are seriously the best cream eyeshadows I found. These have an excellent pigmentation, they apply so smoothly with zero tugging on the lids, blend nicely and once they set, they don't budge. Golden Brown is a bronze shade that is very similar to Maybelline's On and on Bronze, but it's a bit darker and cooler and 38 Golden Taupe is a .neutral-warm taupe shade, which is in the same colour family as Satin Taupe, but it has quite a chunky green-gold shimmer in it. 


I rave about this blush all the time. They changed the pattern since I got mine, but I think it's still the same shade. There's something about this natural shade that just compliments my pale neutral skintone so well, it's just a perfect every day, goes-with-everything blush. It's an interesting shade that kind of looks like someone mixed a red-toned bronzer with a warm pink blush.

I always feel that brave dark shades like burgundies need a bit of contouring. This one fits us pale girls well as the contour powder is taupe brown, so it manages to fake a shadow well and it's pigmented enough to show up on my cheeks. The highlighter is subtle though, but in a nice champagne shade for a neutral skintone like mine.


Out all Creme Puffs available here Lavish Mauve is the least shimmery and coolest. It's a coo pink-mauve-violet shade with tiny duo chrome violet-gold shimmer, which I can't see on the cheeks. The texture is soft, decently pigmented and on my cheeks it has more of a satin finish. 

Tresure Rose is the darkest and most pigmented in my selection, it's also the only cream blush. It's a rose-retro red mix that translates into a pink-red flush on the cheeks and the texture reminds me of play-doh, which means it's quite dry to the touch. 


I've heard whispers that this is a dupe for Soar, but I don't have it to compare, it is nonetheless such a beautiful 90's inspired shade. The formula is creamy enough to be used as a replacement for a lipstick and it's cheap as chips. You can't go wrong with this one.

This is my ultimate favourite everyday goes-with-every-thing and appropriate for every occasion lip colour. It's a beautiful muted rose-pink shade that is actually exactly the natural tone of my lips, but a shade or two darker, making it look quite natural on my lips, however, it still stands out. The staying power and the matte formula are winners as well.


01 Lusty Peony is a dark nude type of shade that's easy to wear and would suit many people. But what's even more important is that the formula is just fantastic. It's so creamy and comfortable to wear. I really hope that Kiko decides to make these permanent. The packaging is divine as well, the rose gold tube really is a looker. Love this.

Strawberry Pink is a warm medium natural pink-rose-brown shade that is several shades darker than my lips as well as a bit warmer, but it might be a nice MLBB shade for medium skin tones The finish is creamy-satin and it's the type of lipsticks that at time can feel drying, though at first it's very comfortable to wear. 


Well, of course this is going to be here, it's the best burgundy shade I found with a fantastic matte formula. It's a deep red with no brown undertones and very little purple undertones which I appreciate a lot. I adore this colour on me, it's just so striking. The texture is pleasantly creamy and more waxy or perhaps silicone-y than most lipsticks I tried, but it glides on the lips like a dream and isn't drying at all despite the semi-matte finish.

Aside from Laetitia the other vampy shade. It's much more purple though. It's a deep purple with a bit of burgundy on my lips and it's super pigmented, creamy, applies without dragging - truly the formula is lovely. The lasting power impressed me as well and it wears off into this nice even stain.  


A gorgeous deep berry purple that is a perfect mix between purple and pink-rose. The formula is great as at most Essie, meaning it's really smooth as well as easy to apply evenly and it's fully opaque with two coats. It's on my nails at the moment.

This is without a doubt one of my favourite shades ever in my entire nail polish stash. I love such dark vampy colours especially in colder months. Sole Mate is a beautiful plum-bordeaux shade (supposedly a dupe for Chanel's Rouge Noire) with an amazing quality formula and that fabulous Essie brush. 


A retro rose shade or a dirty medium pink that fits perfectly into autumn. I hear Essence Love my Diary is a pretty close dupe for it and it's a third of the price. Both are gel inspired formulas.

MISSLYN Nail Polish
610 Night Club
A beautiful navy blue with blue frost. It's one of those shades that is almost black, but the reflect shows it's true nature. The formula is a bit on the dry side, so it's not the easiest to apply.


This is that one fantastic transition shade that can easily be worn from autumn though winter into spring because it's such a nice mix of styles. It's a mix of autumn-winter murky taupe and spring pastel lilac shade, so it looks very modern on the nails. Plus this formula has a very shiny finish.

ESSIE Nail Lacquer
Merino Cool 
A mix of violet and grey. It's in the same colour family as Midsummer Mauve, but darker and less grey. The formula is classic requiring two-three coats for full opacity.


The scent of this version is mighty powerful, in fact way too much for a majority of the year, but as soon as temperatures drop, you'll appreciate it more. I'd describe the scent as chocolate-vanilla-musk-woody one in a perfume version, so an oriental type of scent. But otherwise, it's a standard Batiste dry shampoo, which is one of my favourites.

Balea knows what to offer for super dry skin. My legs, elbows and especially soles gets so dry in autumn and winter, so I resort to really heavy-duty stuff. Balea's body butters are thick and intensely moisturising, so it's better to apply them before going to bed. This version smells exactly like Monte (the dessert) so it's an intense chocolate hazelnut scent. If you like foody scents, this is definitely for you.

Combination of central heating and the cold, foggy/rainy weather can make the hair drier - it certainly affects mine. Drugstore conditioners do nothing for me any more and I resort to many leave-in products to fend away dryness. This one is a cream leave-in conditioner or a version of it. It actually has a considerable amount of oil in it, but it doesn't make you hair all limp or greasy and it doesn't leave that silicone felling on the hair. It just helps with the dryness without screwing your hair style and it can be used on both dry and wet hair. It smells like the rest of the Extraordinary line, so a bit like cinnamon. 

YANKEE CANDLE Soft Blanket
It's the season of candles. There aren't many I like and most left me disappointed (though I recently found an amazing one with a peach scent in Eurospin for like a euro), but I adore the scent of this one. Truly it's one of the most amazing scents ever. it's like baby powder and fabric softener, so its soft, warm and cosy.


Have a great day!

    1. Hvala <3 Res mi veliko pomeni, da ceniš moje delo :) Jaz se rada z objavo res potrudim in hočem, da je čim več informacij ter swatchev zraven. Mi je res žal, da več blogerk tega ne dela. Zdaj iščem reviewe res svetlih pudrov in sem razočarana, kako malo informacij sem dobila. Samo na eno blogerko sem se lahko zanesla, ampak piše pa v nemščini.

  4. Se pridružujem ostalim, super objava s čudoviti slikami :) Najbolj so mi v oči padli Essiji, ki jih nekako obožujem, čeprav so moji odtenki bolj pastelni. Padle so mi tudi šminke v oči, ker ti vsak odtenek po svoje zelo lepo paše.

    1. No, pa je skoraj nisem objavila :) Očitno moram res začet že decembrsko načrtovat :D Res ne pozanm nobenega, ki mi je rekel, da Soft Blanket ne diši :D

      Nimam na to vpliva, jaz samo word dokument tam pošljem :) Hvala <3 Nimam občutka kakšna je kaj branost, pa kot praviš komentarjev tam ni, tudi lajki ravno ne padajo na njihovem profilu, potem me pa večno skrbi, da nisem dovolj dobra. Bi kar naredila za tukaj angleško verzijo, če bo komu v pomoč.

  8. Čudovita objava. Tvoje fotografije so vedno paša za oči :). In fotografija z L'Oreal šminko - adorable! <3
    Balea maslo bi kupila samo zaradi vonja, pa ne smem, ker imam še veliko drugih za porabit. Jaz pri tem Batisteju voham toliko lesnih not, da se mi zdi že primeren za moške, kot kak moški parfum :). Je pa res močan vonj, bolj primeren za jesen.
    Moji lasje so po novi dozi barvanja tako suhi, da sploh več ne vem kaj naj dajem gor. Kar koli dam gor, je prvi dan pranja še super, naslednji dan pa že suho. Sovražim.
    V Lidlu imajo navadne sveče (niso v kozarcih), ena se imenuje Nature. Ima veliko bolj nežen vonj in manj invaziven kot je Soft Blanket: Resda nikakor ni dupe, čeprav me nekako spominja na Soft Blanket vonj. Je pa res, da tudi med kurjenjem kaj veliko ne voham :/.

    1. Hvala :) Me je skrbelo zaradi kvalitete, ker sem slikala skoraj v temi (lilo je ful).
      Pametno, jaz sem tudi raje porabila dva body butterja preden sem kupila tega. Saj ji še imajo :)
      Meni je pa ta Batiste čisto ženski vonj, ampak je pa močen, da se ga v drugo vas voha :D

      Kakšne lase sem imela jaz prejšnji teden, za znort. Sem takoj vzela vse taboljše kar imam, da sem jih popravila. Pa včeraj sem naročila nekaj novih stvari. Meni vedno pomaga tisto olje od La Petite Marseillais, ampak to je za pred pranje,. Za na suhe lase imam tole od L'Oreala, ampak Orofluido Sahara je pa še boljši.
      Jaz nikoli ne vidim teh sveč v Lidlu (verjetno zato ker takoj krofom tečem, potem pa brezciljno vandram naprej :D) Moram napisat na telefon, pa bom pogledala :) Itak imam zdaj tisto ki diši po breskvah od Evrospina. Pa tako močno diši. Love it :)

    2. LPM olje sem že iskala v MB v Leclercu, pa tam takrat ni bilo. Moram it še kdaj pogledat. To imam na wish listi odkar si ti napisala oceno :). A drugje se ne da dobit, ne? Mogoče pa bi morala it v Avstrijo pogledat.
      Hehe..v Lidlu majo sveče nekje med mili in toaletnim papirjem. Saj jaz sem tako čisto po naključju zadnjič tam pristala. Drugače pa ima Hoffer luškane zimske vonje že. Pa v steklenih kozarcih so po isti ceni kot v Lidlu :).

    3. Sem slišala, da nimate kaj dosti v mariborskem Leclercu, v LJ pa verjetno ne greš kaj dosti, ne? Drugje nisem videla, pa sem že iskala.

      Edino v Evrospinu gledam sveče, ker imajo take na način Yankee Candle, samo mi nobena od tistih ne diši. V Hofferju nisem bila pa že miljon let, pa moram it zdaj ko majo božične čokolade :D

  11. Luštna objava. :)
    Samo pri mojih laseh je pa ravno obratno - v hladni polovici leta sem ful zadovoljna z njimi, ampak sonce je pa zanje ubijalsko, sploh poleti... Npr. letos sem uporabljala med drugim tudi Orofluido Sahara in mi ni nič pomagalo. In so potem rabili ena 2 tedna, da sem jih spravila nazaj na (za moje pojme) zadovoljivo stanje. Problem je predvsem v posvetljenih konicah (še od barvanja), ki postanejo kot slama na soncu, ampak zdaj sem jih itak odrezala, tako da upam, da bo drugo leto boljše. :D A sama poleti (oz.na soncu) uporabljaš Saharo in kakšen leave-in balzam in to je to?

    1. Hvala :) Res? Jaz pa ponavadi spomladi/poleti lahko brez problema uporabljam cenejše balzame, ampak čim se začne kurit centralno je groza. Poleti ne zmečem pol toliko stvari kot zdaj na lase, ampak letos je pa bilo ubijalsko. Nisem pa uporabljala Sahare, ker jo bolestno šparam (vem, sem weirdo), ampak sem imela tale L'Orealov Extraordinary Oil-in-Cream, pa za nujne primere La Petite Marseillais Huile Elixir Karite & Argan, ki ga uporabljam pred pranjem in je awesome :)
