Essence Dark romance- Red romance blush

So after the lipstick swatch, it's time for the blush swatch from the Dark romance collection. Again I went with the darker shade called Red romance. 

Nakon swatcha ruža, danas vam odmah donosim i swatch rumenila iz Dark romance kolekcije. I ovdje sam uzela tamniju nijansu koja se zove Red romance.

essence dark romance pjenasto barsunasto rumenilo

These blushes come in big plastic pots which contain 14 mL, enough for a very long time :D And they cost 23 kn which is a great price for a product like this. 

Ova rumenila dolaze u velikim plastičnim teglicama koje sadrže 14 mL, što je dovoljno za jako puno korištenja :D Cijena im je 23 kn što je super za ovakav proizvod i količinu. 

essence baršunasto pjenasto rumenilo

These are velvet mousse blushes and you can see that they look kind of strange, but the product itself is really nice. It looks pretty dark in the pot but you can apply it in a really small amount and it will give you just a fresh slightly blushed cheek :)

Kažu da su ovo baršunasta pjenasta rumenila i kao što možete vidjeti malo čudno izgledaju u teglici, ali sam proizvod je dobar. Izgleda prilično tamno u teglici, ali možete staviti samo jako malu količinu i obrazi će vam izgledati svježe i lagano zarumenjeno :)

essence red romance swatch rumenila

These are swatches on my hand, left side is blended and right is heavily applied, and left side of the picture is in the shade and right side is in the sun. 

Ovo su swatchevi na ruci, na lijevoj strani je izblendano rumenilo, a na desnoj je jače nanešeno, lijeva strana slike je slikana u hladu, a desna na suncu. 

essence dark romance lagano naneseno rumenilo

And of course here is how it looks on me, both pictures are in the shade, here the blush is lightly applied. As I've tried it so far, the blush sinks into the skin and it's pretty long-lasting, of course that depends on your foundation and type of skin you have. 

I slike kako rumenilo izgleda na meni, obje slike su u sjeni, na ovoj je rumenilo lagano naneseno. Koliko sam do sada uspjela isprobat, rumenilo se upije u lice i prilično dugo ostaje na licu, naravno to ovisi i o tome kakvu podlogu koristite i općenito kakav tip kože imate. 

essence red romance blush intenzivnije nanesen

And here is a heavier application. This blush would look great paired with the same shade of lipstick from this collection. Do you like mousse blushes? They are similar to cream blushes but in my experience they apply and blend easier than cream ones. What do you think of this blush?

A na ovoj je intenzivniji nanos. Ovo rumenilo super izgleda u kombinaciji sa istoimenom nijansom ruža iz ove kolekcije. Volite li pjenasta rumenila? Slična su kremastim rumenilima, ali se po mom iskustvu lakše nanose i blendaju od kremastih. Što mislite o ovom rumenilu?

Essence Dark romance - Red romance lipstick

Let me show you a lipstick, again :D Since Dark romance collection is now available in Muller stores I thought it would be best to hurry up and make swatches so you can get these this lipstick if you want. 

Evo da vam pokažem još jedan ruž za usne :D Trenutno je u Mulleru aktualna Dark romance kolekcija i rekoh da je bolje da požurim sa swatchevima tako da još možete kupiti ako vam se nešto svidi. 

essence limited edition dark romance

This shade is called Red romance and it's in the dark berry family (the other lipstick from the collection is bright red). Packaging is the same as in the standard range, only it has the Dark romance logo on it. 

Ova nijansa se zove Red romance i ovo je jedna tamno crvena berry nijansa ( druga nijansa iz ove kolekcije je žarko crvena). Pakiranje je isto kao i kod ruževa u stalnoj postavi, ovaj jedino ima još Dark romance logo na njemu. 

essence red romance ruz za usne

Onto the interesting stuff, lip swatches, this is the lipstick applied straight from the tube in the shade. I have some similar colors in my stash as you have already seen, but something made me buy this one too :D It's on the warmer side of the berry spectrum. 

Idemo na zanimljive stvari, swatcheve ruževa, ovo je ruž stavljen direktno iz pakiranja, slikan u sjeni. Vjerojatno ste vidjeli već da imam sličnih nijansi u kolekciji, ali me nešto natjeralo da kupim i ovu. :D Ova nijansa dođe negdje u topliju stranu berry spektra. 

berry burgundy ruz red romance

And this is a picture in the sun. Lipstick is light and moisturizing what makes it not very longlasting on the lips, but it's easy to wear and you don't have to worry it will dry out your lips. This lipstick costs 18 kn and you get 3.8 g, if you don't get this one but you really want something similar, there is a shade in standard range called On the catwalk that could be right for you :) Even though I avoid Twilight, but I really like these Essence Twilight inspired collection, all of them have been great and I have lots of products from them. Did you have any luck in finding Dark romance collection? If you did tell me, did you buy anything? 

I ovo je slika na suncu. Ruž je lagan i hidratantan i zbog toga nije toliko trajan na usnama, ali se lagano nosi i ne morate se bojati da će vam isušiti usne. Cijena ruža je 18 kn i dobije se 3,8 grama za to, ako ne uspijete pronaći ovaj ruž, a hoćete nešto slično, u standardnoj postavi ima nijansa On the Catwalk koja bi mogla biti baš prava za vas :). Iako izbjegavam Sumrak franšizu, sviđaju mi se ove Essence kolekcije inspirirane dotičnom, sve su bile sjajne i imam dosta proizvoda iz njih. Jeste li vi imali sreće u pronalasku Dark romance kolekcije? Ako jeste recite mi jeste li i što ste kupili?

Ooh purple, baby, ooh

Last month I was chosen as a reader of the month on Beauty and sweets blog and my prize for that were nail polishes, first of them is this one that I'll show you today and the rest you will see as I swatch them :)

 Prošli mjesec sam izabrana za čitateljicu mjeseca na Beauty and sweets blogu i kao nagradu sam od Perse dobila naravno lakove za nokte :D Danas ću vam pokazati jednog od njih, a ostatak ćete vidjeti kako ih budem swatchala. 

essence beauty beats purple nail polish

This is Essence Baby, baby, ooh! from the Beauty beats limited edition which is just available in Kozmo stores. There are two coats with top coat on both pictures, first one is in the shade, second one is in the sun. This is a medium purple with tiny pink and purple shimmer that add depth to the polish without the shimmer really be noticeable on the nails.

Ovo je  Essence Baby, baby, ooh! iz Beauty beats limitirane kolekcije koja je trenutno dostupna u Kozmo drogerijama. Na slikama su dva sloja laka sa top coatom, prva slika je slikana u hladu, a druga na suncu. Ovo je srednje tamna ljubičasta sa sitnim ljubičastim i rozim shimmerom koji se ne vidi na noktima, ali daje dubinu samoj boji.

essence beauty beats baby baby ooh lak

Standard straight thin brush, consistency is ok, only if you don't wipe the brush properly, polish can drip sometimes. You get 8 mL for I think 18 kn or something close to that. I wore this one yesterday with an interesting glitter on top, which I will show you in one of the future posts :) I read that purple is the color of this autumn/winter season so I'm prepared :D Also that purple lipsticks are in trend right now, I also have something for that in my cupboard :) So stay tuned :) Until then tell me do you like this nail polish, which is your favorite purple nail polish?

U ovom laku četkica je standardna ravna, konzistencija laka je uredu, jedino ako se četkica ne obriše dobro ponekad lak zna kapati. Kod ovog laka dobijete 8 mL za nekih 18 kn ili nešto blizu tome. Nosila sam ovaj lak jučer sa jednim zanimljivim glitterom preko što ću vam pokazati u jednom od slijedećih postova :) Čitala sam da je ljubičasta boja za ovu jesen i zimu tako da sam spremna :D Kao i da su ljubičasti ruževi u trendu sada imam asa u rukavu i za to, tako da očekujte i to uskoro :) Do tada recite mi je li vam se sviđa ovaj lak, koji je vaš omiljeni ljubičasti lak za nokte?

Pink me up, before you go go

I think it's time for another nail polish, again something bright to forget about the rain that's pouring outside. This is Ados 550 and it's bright pink that supposed to be fuchsia. But unfortunately it doesn't look the same in the bottle and on the nails.

Mislim da je vrijeme za još jedan lak za nokte, ponovno nešto svijetlo da zaboravimo na ovu kišu koja vani lijeva. Ovo je Ados 550 i ovo je srednje svijetla roza boja koja je skoro trebala biti fuksija, ali nažalost ne izgleda jednako u bočici i na noktima. 

ados lak za nokte kozmo

This is three coats without top coat in the shade. Drying time is average to slow which is not appreciated since it needs three coats. So fast drying top coat is a must. But on the other hand staying power is really nice and I've worn it for a really long time (for me at least :D) without tip wear and no chips. Also color on the nails is lighter and less purple than color in the bottle :( 

Na slici su tri sloja laka, bez top coata i slikano je u sjeni. Vrijeme sušenja je prosječno do sporo, što nije dobro jer su za ovaj lak potrebna tri sloja. Korištenje brzosušećeg top coata je onda praktično obavezno s ovim lakom. Pozitivna strana je da ovaj lak dugo traje na noktima (bar dugo za mene :D) bez da se pohaba na noktima ili okrhne negdje. Boja na noktima je svjetlija i manje ljubičasta na noktima nego u bočici, što me moram priznati razočaralo, jer sam se baš zaljubila u boju iz bočice. :(

ados rozi lak za nokte

And this is the same manicure in the sun. It's a happy color and I've worn it few times already it looked great in the summer when the skin is little bit more tanned. With these Ados nail polishes you get 9 mL for 20 kn, which is fine, they are available only in Kozmo stores, it has standard straight thin brush. This one has the right consistency but I don't know if it maybe varies from shade to shade since this one is only one I've tried so far. So do you like this color? Have you tried Ados nail polishes?

I ovo je ista manikura na suncu. Vesela mi je nekako ova boja i nosila sam je već nekoliko puta, pogotovo je lijepo izgledala ljeti kad koža malo potamni od sunca. Kod Ados lakova se dobije 9 mL za 20 kn što je uredu i kod nas se mogu kupiti samo u Kozmo drogerijama. Imaju uobičajenu ravnu tanku četkicu. Ova nijansa ima  dobru konzistenciju, ali ne znam je li to isto i sa svima, može to varirati od nijanse do nijanse, a meni je ovo zasad jedina nijansa koju sam probala. Kako vam se sviđa ova boja? Jeste li probali Ados lakove za nokte?

Essence Soft berry lipliner pencil

 I think it's time for another lip product post, I hope you do too. Today I will show you Essence Soft berry lipliner pencil, it's the fifth pencil from this range that I have, other four and their swatches and review you can read HERE.

Mislim da je vrijeme za još jedan post o nekom proizvodu za usne i nadam se da i vi mislite tako. Danas ću vam pokazati Essence Soft berry lipliner olovku za usne, ovo je peta olovka iz ove linije koju imam, a druge četiri možete vidjet OVDJE.

essence lipliner pencil

So this is Soft berry in the shade. It's a strange color, something between brown and purple, as you can see it depends a lot on the lightning. As the other lipliners from this line it's soft and creamy and comfortable to wear. Sometimes when it's hot like in the summer this one is too soft and application can be a nightmare so I leave it for Autumn and Winter time, shade is very appropriate for that period anyway. 

Ovo je Soft berry u sjeni, malo je čudna nijansa, nešto između smeđe i ljubičaste i kao što možete vidjeti jako ovisi o tome na kakvom je svjetlu. Kao i druge olovke iz ove linije je mekana i kremasta i ugodna za nošenje, ne isušuje usne. Ponekad kad je vruće kao na primjer ljeti postane i premekana i onda je aplikacija problematična tako da je ja radije ostavljam za jesen i zimu, a i tad su ovakve nijanse puno prikladnije. 

essence olovka za usne soft berry

And a picture in the sun :) You can get these pencils for 9 kn which is great. Anything I've said in that first post is applicable here so to cut the story short I did a look with this pencil yesterday so I thought it would be nice to include it. 

I ovo je slika na suncu :) Ove olovke možete kupiti za oko 9 kn što je super. Sve što sam napisala i u prvom postu se može primijeniti ovdje tako da skratim ovu priču napravila sam jedan look sa ovom olovkom jučer pa sam mislila kako bi ga bilo zgodno uključiti. 

kasno jesenski make up look

As far as my memory goes (not very far ^_^) I've used Catrice All mat plus foundation in shade 010 Light beige, Catrice Date with ashton brow pencil, taupe eyeshadow and a little bit of beige highlighter, Beauty UK define fx mascara, Essence stay all day concealer in Light beige, Catrice A woman's world LE cream blush, Essence Soft berry lipliner pencil and Catrice Victoria lipstick (also LE :(  very similar color to lip pencil) and translucent loose powder from Essence 50's girls reloaded limited edition. I think that's everything, how do you like this lip pencil and my look to go with it? 

Koliko me sjećanje služi ( a ne služi me baš ^_^) koristila sam Catrice All mat plus foundation u nijansi 010 Light beige, Catrice Date with ashton olovku za obrve, taupe sjenilo i malo bež highlightera, Beauty UK define fx maskaru, Essence stay all day korektor u nijansi Light beige, Catrice A woman's world LE kremasto rumenilo, Essence Soft berry lipliner loovku za usne i Catrice Victoria ruž za usne (također LE :(  vrlo slična nijansa ovoj olovci za usne) and prozirni puder u prahu iz Essence 50's girls reloaded LE. Mislim da bi to bilo sve, kako vam se sviđa ova olovka za usne i moj look koji sam kreirala uz nju?

Thor The Dark world movie review

I won't write this in both languages because it would be too much, I hope you don't mind :) So as you know I went to watch The dark world on Wednesday and I chose a 3D projection, I don't really like 3D but I didn't mind it here, but there was no spectacular 3D worthy moments in this one so I recommend the 2D version if you are trying to decide which one to watch.

IMDB page

So a spoiler free review would be, it's a pretty good movie with the usual perks and things that happen in this kind of comic book adaptations. I haven't read the comics so I judge these movies only on what I see, not on how it's adapted. Thor 2 is almost 2 hours long but the pace is quite good so it keeps you fixed on the screen. There are moments in the movie that will make you laugh and there are those that will make you cry. Acting is good as it's expected from a cast such as this. Hiddleston is again very charming as Loki, they've used him sparingly but every time he appears on screen he makes me smile :) Natalie Portman is beautiful as always and I like her character Jane Foster. Her friend Darcy is as witty as in the first movie but with more screen time now which I liked. Thor is also less annoying in this movie, he was a dick in the first one. Well what to say but avoid spoiling everything, writing movie reviews is harder than I thought it would be :/ If you have any questions just ask and if you want me to tell you more about the plot of the movie also just ask :)

Comments on this post might be dark and full of spoilers, so read with caution ;) If you go and watch the movie let me know what you think of it.

Avon Mandarin magic

Today I finally start with the swatches of Avon nail polishes that I've showed you in my last New in video. I thought I would begin with some other shade but you know things get in the way and the first one you get will be an orange one. 

Konačno danas ću vam pokazati prvi od Avonovih lakova koje sam vam pokazala u mom zadnjem New in videu. Mislila sam da ću započet s nekom drugom nijansom, al onda se planovi promijene i prva nijansa koju ćete vidjeti je narančasta. 

avon nailwear pro + mandarin magic

This is Avon Mandarin magic, on this picture there are two coats of nail polish shot in the shade and without top coat. Yes it's very very shiny :D The brush in these Nailwear pro+ nail polishes is regular and consistency of the polish is on the thinner side, so be sure to wipe your brush well before application because it tends to drip down. Also as with a lot of oranges it's jelly and shows a visible nail line. 

Ovo je Avon Mandarin magic, na ovoj slici su dva sloja laka bez top coata i slikano je u sjeni. Možete vidjet kako je ovaj lak vrlo sjajan sam po sebi :D Četkica u ovim Nailwear pro+ lakovima je standardna, a konzistencija laka je malo rjeđa, tako da kod lakiranja pazite da obrišete četkicu prije nanošenja jer inače višak laka zna počet kapat. Kao i kod mnogih narančastih lakova, ovaj ima jelly teksturu i vidljiva je linija nokta.

avonovi lakovi za nokte

This is the same but the picture is in the sun. The color is bright orange with golden shimmer that you can see both in the bottle and on the nails. With these polishes you get 12 mL for 35 kn currently in campaign 16 (or you can get 2 for 50 kn). Drying time even with the three coats is quite good and this shade also has a pretty good staying power, so it lasted up until two days when I got bored and put some other shade on :)

I ovo su isto dva sloja, ali na suncu. Lak je jarko narančaste boje sa zlatnim shimmerom koji možete vidjet i u bočici i na noktima. Kod ovih lakova dobijete 12 mL za 35 kn u trenutnoj kampanji 16 (ili 2 za 50 kn). Vrijeme sušenja i kod tri sloja je prilično dobro, a ova nijansa ima i prililno dobru trajnost, izdržala je dva dana dok mi nije dosadila pa sam je skinula i stavila neku drugu nijansu :)

narancasti nokti mandarin magic

And an extra I just wanted to show you how three coats look like. Slightly better but if you have longer nails then there will be a visible nail line. It's quite a bright color, great for sunny days or to cheer up those gloomy days like these. So do you like this color or do you stay away from oranges? 

I još jedna dodatna slika da vidite kako tri sloja izgledaju. Nešto je bolje, ali ako imate dulje nokte linija nokta će svejedno biti vidljiva. Boja je prilično upečatljiva i super je za sunčane dane, ali i za razveselit ovakve tmurne. Sviđa li vam se ova boja ili izbjegavate narančaste?

Disclaimer: I did not buy this product, it was sent to me by Avon Hrvatska for review. Every opinion stated in this post is honest and my own.
Proizvod mi je ustupljen od strane Avona Hrvatska za recenziju. Svako mišljenje izrečeno u ovom postu je iskreno i samo moje.

Kako čistim kutikulu nakon lakiranja (video)

Sorry Croatian only, I talk about cuticle clean up, you can still watch if you'd like :)


Mislim da ovdje ne treba puno objašnjavanja sve možete vidjet i čut u videu, uživajte :)


Ako vam je video  ostavio koje neodgovoreno pitanje, slobodno pitajte u komentarima :)

ciscenje kutikule kistom i acetonom

I samo još da dodam konačan rezultat, ovo je lijeva ruka. 

nokti nakon ciscenja

A ovo desna :) U description boxu na videu imate popis korištenih proizvoda i ako vas zanima swatch ovog laka, bio je to Golden Rose Rich color 16. I je li vi morate počistit nakon lakiranja ili imate dovoljno mirnu ruku da vam luk uspije isprve?

Remington silk & light party

Sinoć smo se malo družili na Remington Silk & light partyu, pa rekoh da vam i napišem koju o tome, vjerojatno  će bit više fotki nego teksta, ali nadam se da vam to ne smeta :)


Sve je započelo jednom plesnom točkom  i prezentacijom o i-Light Pro face-u koji je njihov adut u IPL tretmanima za odstranjivanje dlačica, ja na sreću ili nažalost nisam kandidat za ovakve aparate zbog svojih izrazito svijetlih dlačica, ali ako vam je ovakvo nešto potrebno razmislite i o ovom uređaju. 


Na ovoj slici sam malo pogledala kako taj uređajčić izgleda.

remington trimmer 

Na prezentaciji je bila i Severina koja je Remingtonovo novo zaštitno lice  i nakon što nam je stručnjakinja pokazala kako se koriste figara, Severina se okušala s brijačim aparatom Hyper flex na muškom modelu. 

remington cetke i fen za kosu

Moram priznat da do sad nisam znala da oni i četke imaju, ovakve plosnate kao ova desna su meni favoriti za raščešljavanje kose. Ovu okruglu sam probala ovladat, ali otkad vise nemam kraću kosu ne sluša ^_^ 

remington pegla i figaro

I ono po čemu su meni zapravo najpoznatiji, pegla i različita figara. Vidjeli ste već da sam probala kovrčat kosu trakom, a sad ću isprobati i ovaj Remington Silk curling wand pa ćemo vidjet je li mi kovrče onda bolje drže. :)

remington silk&light party

I za kraj jedna fotka društvanca oko stola iako svi gledaju u fotografa pokraj mene koji je "stole my thunder"  sa svojim  fancy fotoaparatom :D Na slici Helena i njena seka, Marko koji je došao u ime Femine, Josipa i Lenka :) Mi smo se ugodno proveli na party-u, kako je protekla vaša večer?
