Changing gears

Firstly yes, I am alive :) 


And my face hasn't changed much ^_^ 

What happened in the last year? A lot of things. List of everything would definitely be too long and probably boring. I've been well and lots of good things happened. Unfortunately blogging fell through the cracks. I have significantly less time lately and I can't promise regular posting, but I hope that I'll pop back every now and then with something new. Also writing in both english and croatian is not happening again, I'm sorry but it takes more time and it reduces the possibility of me posting if I need to translate, but still language of the post may be different according to the topic. I hope that it won't make things too confusing. Make up and nail polish-wise I've been trying to get rid of some old almost empty products, but it's a process, and there are few newer additions, but I'm (unsuccessfully) trying not to go crazy for shopping :D Another thing I wanted to do is try to branch out the topics for the blog and we shall see how that goes. I hope you are all well and that it won't be months until the next post :)

L'Oreal Mega volume Miss manga mascara

I know I took some time off and I might do it again after this post, but I'm not yet committed to go back to regular blogging. I hope that at least these sporadic posts are useful to you. Today it's about a mascara that I already finished but never shown you the swatches. It's L'Oreal Mega volume Miss manga mascara, the original one. 

Znam da sam uzela neku pauzu od bloga i možda ću opet nakon ovog posta, ali nisam još u fazi da se potpuno posvetim redovitom bloganju. Nadam se da su vam bar ovi povremeni postovi korisni. Današnji je o maskari koju sam već dovršila, ali vam nisam do sad pokazala swatcheve. Ovo je L'Oreal Mega volume Miss manga maskara, originalna verzija.

It's a cute packaging but nothing special comparing it to the others. 

Ima slatko pakiranje, ali ništa posebno u odnosu na ostale 

cetkica L'Oreal Miss manga maskara

Here is the picture of the brush, it's not to big and it's thinner at the top, and that's nice for bottom lashes. You can also see the knuckle on the wand and that gives flexibility to this wand, and some girls hate that but I think it takes a little time to get used to but it's not a deal-breaker for me.

Evo slike četkice, nije prevelika i tanja je na vrhu, što mi je dobro za donje trepavice. Možete vidjeti i koljeno na četkici koja daje fleksibilnos, ali znam da se nekim curama to ne sviđa, ali mislim da samo treba neko vrijeme za naviknuti se na to i meni nije stvaralo probleme zbog kojih bi odustala od ove maskare.

L'Oreal Miss manga jedan sloj

One coat on, nice for everyday wear. It doesn't fall off or bleed into the under eye area. It's not waterproof but it hangs on well if there is some moisture. 

Jedan sloj, zgodno za svakodnevno nošenje. Ne trusi se niti se otapa u podočnjacima. Nije vodootporna, ali ipak se dobro drži i kad ima više vlage. 

L'Oreal Miss manga dva sloja

Two coats for a bit more oomph :) or with a bit more eye make up.

Dva sloja za malo bolji efekt :) ili za prilike s malo više make upa na očima. 

L'Oreal Miss manga tri sloja

Three coats, for more of a night time variants, it starts to clump up a bit but nothing too much, it's nice if you like that kind of look. I think that currently this mascara costs 70 kn which is ok, but there are cheaper ones that are equally good that can be found. Bye, see you in the next post :)

Tri sloja, za večernje varijante, počne se malo grudat, ali ne previše, a možda i volite takav izgled trepavica. Mislim da maskara u redovnoj prodaji sad dođe negdje oko 70 kn što mi je sasvim ok, al se da naći i jeftinijih jednako dobrih. Bok, vidimo se u nekom drugom postu :)

Neutral with a pop of blue

Hello :) For today, a make up look. Most of the products that I used aren't available any more so I won't list them. Almost all of them are Essence, whether a limited edition or part of the core collection that got eliminated after a while.  

Bok :) Za danas jedan make up look.  Većina proizvoda koje sam koristila nisu više dostupni pa ih neću nabrajati. Većina ih je Essence ili su bili limitirana kolekcija ili dio standardne kolekcije koji su u međuvremenu izbacili.


All pictures are in the artificial light and especially the blue looks quite washed out, it was popin' more in person ^_^

Sve slike su s umjetnim svjetlom, pa mi pogotovo plava je ispala prilično isprana, više je iskakala uživo obećavam ^_^


Blending I admit could have been better but I have this part in the crease that just won't blend properly. I'm still looking for a solution for that. 

Priznajem blendanje je moglo bit i bolje, al imam jedan dio u pregibu gdje nikako ne mogu izblendat kako želim, pa još tražim rješenje za to. 


And the whole look, I went with very neutral rest of the face so that the blue can be the main focus. Do you like it? What would you change? 

I cijeli look, odlučih se za vrlo neutralan ostatak lica da plava bude glavna. Sviđa li vam se? Što biste promijenili?

Avon Spring Lilac lipstick

It's been a long time since I last wrote to you, but I was buried in exams, which I now finally passed (yay for that :D) and finally after writing this post for a month it's time to publish it :) Here is something with a Spring in it's name but it's actually appropriate all year round :) This is Avon Spring lilac from the ultra color indulgence range. 

 Dugo je prošlo otkad sam zadnji put pisala, ali sam bila zatrpana ispitima, koji su konačno položeni (yay  za to :D) i da konačno nakon mjesec dana tipkanja ovog posta ga i objavim :) Evo nešto sa proljećem u imenu, ali je prikladno cijele godine :) Ovo je Avon Spring lilac iz ultra color indulgence linije. 

avon lila ruz za usne

First two pictures are in the artificial light so they aren't 100 % accurate so look at the swatches if you want a better look. This line has SPF 15 which I really like since usually most of us neglect putting SPF on our lips and they can also burn. And let me tell you burnt lips aren't nice, this summer I wasn't very good with reapplying my SPF and the lips peel and itch when they are burnt.

Prve dvije slike su na umjetnom svjetlu tako da boja nije baš 100 % točna, zato obratite pažnju na swatcheve ako želite vjerniji dojam. Ova linija ima SPF 15 što mi se jako sviđa pogotovo jer većina nas zanemari staviti SPF na usne, a i one mogu izgoriti. I da vam rečem izgorene usne nisu zabavne, ovo ljeto nisam bila ažurna s ponovnim nanošenjem SPF-a i usne svrbe i ljuskaju se jako kad su izgorene.

I really like how this picture turned out so I'm including it :) And onto the more important pictures...

Ova slika mi se jako sviđa kako je ispala pa sam je zato odlučila uključiti :) Sad na važnije slike...

Avon Spring Lilac ruz za usne

This is how the lipstick looks in the shade. This lipstick is creamy and nice to wear, staying time is average and that means it doesn't survive eating but a little bit of drinking is ok. It fades evenly and re-applies nicely.

Ovo je kako ruž izgleda u sjeni. Ruž je kremast i ugodan za nošenje, trajnost je prosječna što bi značilo da neće preživjeti jedenje, al nešto pijenja hoće. Ravnomjerno nestaje i lijepo se ponovno nanosi preko samoga sebe. 

Avon Spring Lilac purple lipstick

And this is how it looks in the sun. It's nice to wear during the day or the night it can be paired with a lot of eye make up looks. What do you think about this shade? Would you wear it?

I ovo je kako izgleda na suncu. Fin je za nositi i po danu i po noći jer se može lijepo spariti s mnogim lookovima na očima. Što vi mislite o ovoj nijansi? Biste li je nosili?
