January Favourites

torek, januar 31, 2017


Since I finally used up a foundation I hate (Rimmel), I started mixing Bourjois CC cream, which is too dark for me, with Nars' Sheer Glow and it proved a lovely combination. It combines the best of both worlds - high coverage from Sheer Glow, while the CC cream makes it more natural looking on the skin as well as makes it less dry for the season, so it ends up wearing quite nice too. This combo also gives me a nice healthy glow, but it doesn't look greasy with time. 

First I have to say that while I was washing this brush, the handle just snapped, but I fixed it with superglue and some tape for extra security and regardless of that, I still freaking adore this brush. It's so incredibly soft, dense, it blends so well and fast, it even manages to make some of the bad foundations work. So far it's my favourite ever foundation brush, well oval brushes in general are just brilliant and it's 3$ so I can deal with a broken handle. Still I'll get a backup.


I've been using this mascara every day this month and it's still so good. It gives me volume and length, but at the same time it doesn't make my lashes drop. I'm just really impressed by it.


Before anyone starts screaming at their screen: "Are you crazy? This is what, five years old?" - I know. And yes, I'm crazy, but it hasn't changed the texture, colour or smell, it doesn't affect my skin, so it's fine. I've dedicated myself to use it up because I've been saving it for far too long and used it on special occasions, but this is the most beautiful highlighter ever. It gives the most natural looking glow, but I mean that in a way that it's still a strong glow, but it looks like it's your skin glowing and there no shimmer. It's been discontinued years ago, so I'd like to find a dupe when I use it up. Suggestions?

I've just ended up using this every single day, partly also because I was lazy and I just had a box of makeup that I used daily (most things are in the post). It's a blush that goes with everything and is good for any occasion, it also has a satin glow that's great for winter time. The colour is a bit more mauve than my other favourite Milani's Romantic Rose.


I wore this daily the first part of the month because it's so comfortable on the lips and I just love applying it because it smells so nice too. Devotion is a warm pink shade, wearable, though already a bright shade for me.

I'll say it again, this is the best lipstick I've tried so far. I love the light, but very pigmented formula and the matte finish is just amazing. The colour is so me, a beautiful rosy-brown shade that is so easy to wear.


BIOBAZA Exclusive Micellar Oil
I've already talked a lot about this in both my wishlist post and the new it, but in short, it's my favourite cleansing oil. With water it transforms into a thick emulsion, it removes makeup really well and it doesn't cause my skin any problems. I'd really like a full size when I use up my stash.

My skin has suffered a bout of crazy dryness, my cheeks could be used as sand paper I'm even not joking. I used Physicians Formula argan oil and Monu Firming moisturiser which are both thick and nourishing, but they just couldn't handle it. I was almost sure this won't help either because it's much lighter in texture, but a generous coat of this every day before going to bed finally started fixing it. My skin is much better now, but it's still drier than usual.


DOVE Nourishing Shower Gel
Coconut Milk with Jasmine Petals
This is such an underrated shower gel, even I forgot it existed until I found it in the bathroom and it reminded me how much I love it. In terms of texture it's by far my favourite shower gel because it's so creamy and lovely to use, but I also love this version of the scent, though I smell no coconut, but it's a nice creamy clean floral scent.

I've been trying to use up some of my bad hair stuff this month, so I skipped a few washes of using this - big, massive, colossal mistake. My hair felt so bad, dry, unruly and I needed barrels of Orofluido to make it remotely manageable for at least a day. Dove makes such a difference in my hair care routine. It makes my hair silky, smooth and a lot less frizzy, with it my hair just looks so much better. I love this stuff. Why isn't it sold here, damn it!


AVON Mesmerize Black
(not on the pictures)
I also spoke about this in both my wishlist and New in, but I just feel in love with the scent. It's a warm, cosy scent without vanilla and that's so rare among the affordable scents. It's almost pure sandalwood. I only had samples which I already used up because I loved it so much, but I hope to get a full size soon.

    1. Tudi mene je res presenetila, ker od navadnih maskar ne pričakujem veliko :)

  3. Še vedno me mika ta Beyu maskara. Ampak imam poln predal nerabljenih, tako da ne smem kupit :). Ravno danes sem si nanesla Trend It Up blush in res paše k vsemu. Meni je tudi zelo všeč odtenek. Sploh za vse mauve šminke. Revlonova šminka je res ultra udobna za nošenje in tudi meni je všeč vonj. Tako kot, ko odprem Too Faced paleto s senčili - terapija :D.
    Avonovi parfumi so vedno znižani tako da te bo počakal. :)
    Ovalni čopič sem pa že naročila. Komaj čakam, da sprobam.

    1. Saj bo verjetno počakala :)
      Oh, ja Revlova šminka diši božansko :) Jo imam tako veselje nanašat. Isto velja za Too Faced paletko.
      Moram še en ta čopič naročit, ker samo tega uporabljam, suši se pa dolgo :)

  4. Spet si me spomnila da moram naročit ovalni čopič :D
    Meni je Bourjois CC kremice ravno zmanjkalo /: -jo bom mogoče ponovno naročila za spomladi, takrat mam rajši take teksture <3

    1. Moja CC krema je tudi že skoraj prazna in razmišljam ali bi jo še enkrat kupila ali ne, ker bi jo v vsakem primeru morala mešat, mi je kar pretemna. Zakaj nimajo svetlejšega odtenka :/ Tekstura je popolna.

  5. I never got interested in anything from colourpop, but now I really want to try those cream mat sticks! I never looked twice at their liquid lipsticks because I hate anything too drying on my lips. Are the ones from the Balm more comfortable to wear than these?
    Btw, I'm not sure if I remember it clearly, but I think you want to give acids another go? If so, you really need to checkout The Ordinary (by deciem), the products are awesome and extremely affordable!! I could only think of you when I found it!

    1. Stix may be more comfortable on lips that get dry quickly, though I think theBalm and Stix are pretty much neck to neck in that respect :). My lips are almost never dry, so it's really hard for me to say.

      I've been hearing about Ordinary a lot recently. It sounds interesting, but I'll be diving into the world of k-beauty first :)

    1. Jaz pa do zdaj edini puder, ki sem ga kupila že nekajkrat je Healthy Mix Serum :)
      Sem videla, da zdaj so novi odtenki Revlonovih šmink. Moram jih pogledat v živo :)

  7. Beauty may only be skin deep, but the type of cosmetics brands placed on your face will enhance what you possess naturally.

  8. I've ordered myself a bunch of the oval brushes. I purchased one a few months ago and loved it for blending so i'm going to try some more out in different sizes. I also agree that dove is sooo underrated! I often use their deodorant, the scent is absolutely amazing and it doesn't choke you when you spray it haha! Its also super smooth. I strongly recommend it! :) Loved this post, I hope you do a Feb Faves :)

    1. I have a few sizes, but I like the large ones most :)
      So little people talk about Dove, but it's a great drugstore brand. I don't think I've ever tried their deodorants, but I should :)
