After school boy blazer

I'm getting worse and worse, I suspect it has something with the state of my nails, which is bad and they constantly are peeling and breaking and I neglect them a little bit to be honest. So today I have some of the old pictures for you. I've mentioned this one already in one of the nail art posts, but now I bring you my swatches (insert rant how pictures could be better but there is no sun today and these are all I have ^_^).

Izgleda da sam sve gora i gora, mislim da to pomalo ima veze i sa stanjem mojih noktiju koje je trenutno grozno i stalno se listaju i pucaju, a i ja ih pomalo zanemarujem da budem iskrena. Tako da danas imam malo starije slike za vas. Spomenula sam ovog već u jednom od nail art postova, ali sad konačno vam donosim swatcheve ( ubacite rant o tome kako bi slike mogle biti i bolje, ali nema sunca ovih dana, pa su ove sve što imam ^_^).

Essie After school boy blazer nail polish

This is Essie After school boy blazer and it was part of their fall collection. I managed to find it on sale for 50% off and if you have incredible luck you might still find it in one of those bins with products on sale. This is two coats in the shade without top coat.  This nail polish is very well pigmented and if you are careful with one thicker coat you can wear it like that. It dries really quickly and lasts well, chips and tip wear are visible after a while but that is what happens with dark colors.

Ovo je Essie After school boy blazer i bio je dio jesenske kolekcije. Uspjela sam ga naći upola sniženog i ako imate nevjerojatnu sreću možda ga se još može pronaći po onim košarama sa sniženim stvarima. Na slikama su dva sloja bez top coata, ova prva je u sjeni. Ovaj lak je jako dobro pigmentiran i za one pažljive je jedan malo deblji sloj dovoljan za nošenje. Jako brzo se suši i dobro traje, kad se izliže na vrhovima ili se chippa onda se to odmah vidi, ali tako je to s tamnim nijansama.

And this is the picture in the sun, a little bit overexposed but at least you can see this is a dark blue shade even though in most lightnings it looks black. It's a good polish for stamping which I've already shown you. With Essie nail polishes you get 13,5 mL usually for 75 kn unless there is a sale going on (I got this one for 35 kn). Do you have any Essie nail polishes? Which is your favorite shade?

I ovo je slika na suncu, malo je preeksponirana, ali bar možete vidjet da je nijansa tamno plava iako na mnogim osvjetljenjima izgleda crno. Super je lak za pečatiranje što sam vam već pokazala. Kod Essie lakova dobije se 13,5 mL za 75 kn ako nisu na sniženju ( ja sam ovog uzela za 35 kn). Imate li neki Essie lak? Koja vam je njihova omiljena nijansa?

Avon Creamy melon + FOTD

This morning I was wondering what to write about and then I put on some make up, this lipstick included and said why not review it today and take a few pictures and show you the make up I'm wearing today. 

Jutros sam se pitala o čemu bih mogla danas pisati, a onda sam se našminkala što je uključivalo i ovaj ruž, pa rekoh što ne bi danas napisala recenziju za njega i pokazala vam usput i make up koji nosim danas.

Avon Ultra colour absolute line ruzeva za usne

This lipstick is from Avon Ultra colour absolute line, it has pink plastic packaging with a see-through cap which is quite eye catching every time I see it I wonder what it is and then realize it's a lipstick. :D

Ovo je ruž iz Avon Ultra colour absolute linije i ima ružićasto plastično pakiranje sa prozurnim čepom i svaki put mi oko zapne za njega i zapitam se što je to dok na kraju shvatim da je to ruž za usne. :D

avon peachy ruz za usne za svaki dan

The shade I got on Beauty blog day 2014 was Creamy melon, I would say a true peachy color, orange lips are in trend this spring and this is a perfect everyday option. You get 3,6 g of lipstick for currently 39 kn (full price is 50). 

Dobila sam ovu nijansu na Beauty blog dayu 2014 i nijansa se zove Creamy melon. Rekla bih da je ovo jedna prava peachy boja, a narančaste usne su u trendu ovo proljeće, pa bih ja rekla da je ovo savršen izbor za svaki dan. Dobije se 3,6 g ruža za 39 kn trenutno (puna cijena je 50).

avon creamy melon ruž za usne

Here is a picture in the shade. I would say the name describes it perfectly, it is really creamy, it applies like a dream, it doesn't dry out the lips, it has some shine but it's far from glossy. Staying power is average, it won't survive eating or drinking, but if you don't do that it stays well on the lips.

Evo slike u sjeni, rekla bih da ga ime savršeno opisuje, baš je kremast, jako lagano se nanosi ne isušuje usne i lagano se sjaji. Trajnost mu je prosječna ne preživljava jelo i piće, ali ako nema toga dobro se drži na usnama.

Avon Ultra colour absolute line creamy melon lipstick

And of course picture in the sun. I would say this one would suit both cool and warm undertones, it's not too pale to really stand out against the skin. 

Naravno evo i slike na suncu. Rekla bih da ova nijansa paše i toplom i hladnom podtonu, nije presvijetla da bi se sudarala s kožom. 

make up za proljece 2014

And finally this is the full make up I wore today. I'm experimenting with brown liner it's much softer than the black and I think more suitable for everyday wear (but that doesn't mean I won't be wearing black during the day any more ^_^). So how do you like the look and the lipstick? 

I na kraju evo i make upa koji sam nosila danas. Eksperimentiram zadnjih dana sa smeđim linerom, puno je mekši od crne i mislim prikladniji za svakodnevno nošenje (doduše to ne znači da sad neću nositi više crni tokom dana ^_^). Kako vam se sviđa moj look i ovaj ruž za usne ?

Vichy Teint ideal fluid foundation review

You might remember the wonderful Teint ideal event at Beauty and mess that happened two months ago, there I got this Vichy Teint ideal fluid foundation. Now I've been using it for quite few times and I think it's time to write a review. Let me tell you right away the color is not a match for me but I managed to work around that and try it out more than once.

Možda se sjećate krasnog Teint ideal eventa kod Beauty and mess prije nekih 2 mjeseca, tamo sam dobila ovaj Vichz Teint ideal fluid za isprobavanje. Sad sam ga već dovoljno koristila pa mislim da je vrijeme i da napišem recenziju. Da odmah rečem nijansa mi je promašena, ali sam uspjela iskombinirat tako da je nosim više od jednog puta.

Vichy Teint ideal tekuci puder

As usual with Vichy the product comes in a cardboard box.

Kao i uobičajeno Vichy proiyvodi dolaze u kartonskim kutijama.

But the real beauty is inside. It's an elegant glass bottle with a metal pump and a plastic plug over it. You get the standard 30 mL of foundation for 163 kn in all the pharmacies that sell Vichy products. It has SPF 20 which is great for wearing it in the daytime and I think this will be a nice summertime foundation for me. I hope to get some tan so I can wear this shade in the day too :D

Ali prava ljepota je unutra. Elegantna staklena bočica sa metalnom pumpicom i plastičnim čepom. Dobije se standardnih 30 mL za 163 kn u ljekarnama koje prodaju Vichy proizvode.Ima SPF 20 što je super ako želite nositi ovaj puder sam po danu, a ja se nadam da će to pripomoći da ovo bude ljetni puder za mene. Nadam se da ću potamniti malo pa da mogu nositi ovu nijansu i po danu :D


Vichy Teint ideal fluid staklena bocica s pumpicom

Here is a close up of the pump, I usually  use one pump for my whole face and then a little bit more to cover up my neck and ears because of the wrong shade. All of the shades of this fluid foundation are quite yellow so if you have cool undertones you probably won't find a shade for yourself.

Evo i pumpice pobliže, koristim jednu pumpicu za cijelo lice, a onda još malo za prekriti uši i vrat da se kriva nijansa manje primjeti. Sve nijanse ovog fluida su prilično žute, pa ako ste hladnog podtona vjerojatno nećete naći nijansu za sebe.

Vichy Teint ideal fluid pumpica

Consistency of this foundation is very fluid and runny it has a smell of alcohol which is expected since alcohol denat is in the third place, I was worried that it would dry me out but that didn't happen. Those who are sensitive to it, you should probably find something else. It doesn't contain parabens so the high alcohol content is probably for conservation purposes. This foundation wasn't comedogenic for me and judging from the ingredients nothing looks too worrying, it has some silicones and titanium dioxide but unless you are sensitive to those it shouldn't be a problem. 

Konzistencija ovog pudera je vrlo tekuća i miriše po alkoholu što je za očekivat jer je alcohol denat na trećem mjestu. Bila sam zabrinuta zbog mogućeg isušivanja, ali se to meni nije dogodilo. Oni koji su osjetljivi na alkohol bi vjerojatno trebali potražiti nešto drugo. Ne sadrži parabene pa je visoki udio alkohola tu da djeluje kao konzervans. Ovaj puder mi nije bio komedogen i sudeći po sastojcima ništa ne izgleda problematično, ima ponešto silikona i titanij dioksid, ali ako niste osjetljivi na njih to ne bi trebao biti problem.

Vichy Teint ideal fluid nijansa 25 sand moyen

This is a picture in natural light so you can see the shade and how it's about two shades too dark for me. It does adjust a little bit to the color of the skin when it sinks in.

Ovdje je slika na prirodnom svjetlu, samo da vidite nijansu, koja je negdje dvije nijanse pretamna za mene. Malo se prilagodi licu kad se upije, ali još uvijek ne dovoljno.

moje golo lice prije pudera

Here is my bare face before the foundation. Both pictures are in the artificial light so you can see the effect but the fact that it's the wrong shade is minimized since the light is yellow. It would look too wrong if I made these in daylight XD

Prva slika je golo lice bez pudera. Obje slike su na umjetnom svjetlu tako da vidite efekt pudera, ali je činjenica da je promašena nijansa umanjena budući da žuto svjetlo ubija razlike. Pregrozno bi izgledalo da sam radila ove slike na danjem svjetlu. XD

Vichy Teint ideal fluid na licu

And here it is with the foundation on, I applied it with a brush and usually I apply it with a brush since I prefer that effect. This foundation has medium coverage but it is build-able and with a concealer you can get to a flawless finish. Vichy describes this as an illuminating foundation and I would agree it isn't outright shimmery but it gives a healthy sheen to the skin. It is geared to normal to combination skin (which I have) and it suits me well, if I powder over it, it keeps me matte for quite a long time, but most times I don't even have to powder over it. Someone with oily skin might need to keep a powder or oil control papers close by. Have you tried this foundation? Are you interested in trying it?

I evo slike sa puderom, nanijela sam ga sa kistom kao i inače budući da s ovim puderom preferiram taj efekt. Puder ima srednje prekrivanje, ali se može nadograđivati i sa korektorom se može postići potpuno prekrivanje. Vichy ovaj puder svrstava u pudere za blistavost i moram se složiti s tim, ovo nije shimmerasti puder, ali daje jedan suptilni zdravi sjaj koži. Usmjeren je ka kupcima s normalnom do mješovitom kožom (koju ja imam) i dobro mi odgovara, drži me mat prilično dugo, najčešće ni ne moram stavljat matirajući puder preko. Netko s maskom kožom bi vjerojatno trebao prepudrati ili imati sa sobom listiće za matiranje. Jeste li isprobali ovaj puder? Imate li možda namjeru probati ga?

Bourjois Rose d'or blush

Yesterday on Facebook I posted a question would you like to see a blush or a foundation review and since there weren't any wishes I picked blush. I've had this one for a while and well it's high time I posted a swatch of it even though there is probably a bunch of them around on the internet.

Jučer na Facebooku sam vam postavila pitanje što bi radije vidjeli recenziju rumenila ili pudera, a budući da nije bilo nikakvih želja odabrala sam rumenilo. Imam ovo rumenilo već neko vrijeme i mmislim da je krajnji čas da postam swatch iako ih već vjerojatno ima hrpa po internetu.

Bourjois Rose d'or rumenilo

This is Bourjois Rose d'or blush and its a medium pink with a lot golden shimmer particles. This first picture is shot in the shade. These Bourjois blushes come in little plastic round pots and each one is in the color of the shade that's inside. I think that's cool if you have more of them you can locate the right one right away. In the packaging there is a little mirror which is useful if you need little corrections during the day, also there is a small curved brush that wasn't anything special so I threw it away.You get 2,5 g of product for around 60-70 kn depending on the stores and if there is a sale going on that can also go below that price. 

Ovo je Bourjois Rose d'or rumenilo i ovo je srednja roza s mnogo zlatnih shimmerastih čestica. Prva slika je slikana u sjeni. Ova Bourjois rumenila dolaze u malim okruglim pakiranjima i svako pakiranje je boje rumenila koje je unutra, što je zgodno ako ih imate više i tražite točno određenu nijansu. U pakiranju je s druge strane malo ogledalo koje može biti korisno ako ste negdje vani za sitnije popravke, dođe i mala zaobljena četkica, koja meni nije nešto posebno pa sam je se brzo riješila. Dobije se 2,5 g proizvoda za 60-70 kn, ovisno o trgovini i ako je nekakvo sniženje u pitanju idu i ispod te cijene. 

Bourjois Rose d'or rumenilo swatch

Swatch on my hand on the left in the shade, on the right in the sun, left swatch is blended and right part is heavy application. These have quite hard structure and you need a bit more work to transfer the color properly but the upside is that it's hard to go overboard. I've heard the some become harder over time and that you have to scrape of the top part so you can use them again but that never happened to me, mine is still the same since I bought it, so it must be the way someone uses it.

Swatch na ruci, na lijevoj strani je slika u hladu, na desnoj na suncu, lijeva strana je izblendana, a na desnom dijelu je intenzivniji nanos. Ova rumenila imaju prilično tvrdu strukturu i trebaju malo više rada da se prenese boja kako treba, ali je pozitivno to što je teže pretjerati. Čula sam da nekima ova rumenila stvore tvrdi sloj na površini koji se treba ostrugati da se mogu ponovno koristiti, ali se meni otkad ga imam to nikad nije dogodilo, tako da vjerojatno ovisi o načinu upotrebe. 

Bourjois Rose d'or lagano naneseno rumenilo

This is a light application on my cheeks and this is what I usually go for, it gives me a fresh spring look. It's quite long lasting, it's not comedogenic, color range is ok but not too wide. Nice blushes for the price, but if you don't like harder blushes skip these ones. 

Ovdje je laganije naneseno na obraze i ovo je varijanta kojoj češće pribjegavam za svježi proljetni look. Rumenilo dugo traje, nije komedogeno izbor boja je ok, ali nije baš prevelik. Dobra rumenila za cijenu, ali ako ne volite tvrđa rumenila preskočite ova.

Bourjois Rose d'or rumenilo intenzivno naneseno

And this is heavier application for those who want a more intense look. I think this shade would suit all skintones because it's a combination of warm shimmer and slightly colder base color so it's a good choice. 

Ovo je intenzivnije nanešeno za one koji žele intenzivniji look. Mislim da ova nijansa pristaje svim podtonovima kože jer je kombinacija toplijeg shimmera i nešto hladnije baze pa se čini kao dobar izbor.

Bourjois Rose d'or blush tekstura na suncu

This is the blush in the sun and you can see how shiny and prominent the gold shimmer is.  I love this picture I could watch it the whole day :D

Ovo je rumenilo na suncu i možete vidjeti kako se sjaji i kako se zlatni shimmer ističe. Baš volim ovu sliku i mogla bih je gledati cijeli dan :D

Bourjois Rose d'or rumenilo na suncu

And this is a try to picture it in the sun but I'm not very satisfied with it but I hope that at least you can see the gold shimmer. Do you have any of the Bourjois pot blushes? Are you satisfied with them? Do you have a favorite shade?

I ovo je pokušaj slike na suncu, nisam baš zadovoljna s njom, ali se nadam da bar možete vidjeti kako izgleda zlatni shimmer na licu. Imate li neko od Bourjois rumenila u ovim "teglicama"? Jeste li zadovoljni s njima? Imate li omiljenu nijansu?
