Essence Yeah, Copacabana! (Viva Brasil collection)

 As I promised sun means a new swatch today :D  I thought I would publish this yesterday but going to the beach got in the way, but at least I have something that is perfect to wear on the beach and for summer. 

Kao što sam obećala sunce znači novi swatch :D Mislila sam da ću ovo objaviti jučer, ali me plaža i kupanje omela u planovima, ali bar sad imam nešto što je idealno za nošenje ljeti i na tu istu plažu.

Essence Yeah, Copacabana! nail polish

Behold, this is Yeah, Copacabana! from Essence Viva Brasil collection and it's a really bright yellow creme, what more screams summer than something like this?

Ovo je Yeah, Copacabana! iz Essence Viva Brasil kolekcije i jarka je žuta kremasta nijansa, što više vrišti ljeto nego ovako nešto?

Essence Yeah, Copacabana!  lak za nokte

This is three coats without top coat shot in the shade, three coat's aren't an absolute must but I wanted to get rid of all the bald spots. Saying that, I must say that this is the best yellow polish that I own, I usually refrain from buying them since yellow pigment is known to be a streaky mess but this one is a lovely surprise. 

Ovo su tri sloja bez top coata slikano u sjeni, nisu baš uvijek potrebna tri sloja, ali sam se htjela riješiti baš svih praznina i ujednačiti sve. Moram spomenut i da mi je ovo najbolji žuti lak koji imam do sada, uobičajeno ih izbjegavam kupovati jer žuti pigment je poznat kao problematičan, ali ovaj je bio ugodno iznenađenje.

And this is in the sun, you see how bright it is :D and shiny, drying time is a bit slower but that might be due to three coats. This one is also available in Kozmo for 13,90 kn and you get 8 mL. In case you missed it, my last post was a swatch of I heart Brasil pink nail polish from this collection. What is your favorite yellow nail polish or do you avoid them because of the harder than usual application? I hope you have weather better than mine today :)

I ovo je na suncu, da vidite kako je jarka :D i sjajna, vrijeme sušenja je nešto sporije, ali to može biti i do toga što su tri sloja u pitanju. I ovaj je dostupan u Kozmo drogerijama za 13,90 kn i dobije se 8 mL. U slučaju da ste ga propustili zadnji post je bio swatch I heart Brasil koji je rozi lak iz ove kolekcije. Koji je vaš omiljeni žuti lak za nokte ili ih izbjegavate tbog težeg nanošenja? Nadam se da je kod vas bolje vrijeme od ovog mog današnjeg :)

Essence I heart Brasil (Viva Brasil collection)

 I broke my no buy yesterday and well since some of the items are limited edition I said to myself I need to start swatching or it will be too late. 

Jučer prekrših svoj no buy i budući da su neke stvari limited edition rekoh si da moram odma poswatchat ih prije nego bude prekasno.

Essence I heart Brasil (Viva Brasil kolekcija)

First up is this lovely pink nail polish from Viva Brasil limited edition by the name of I heart Brasil. This first picture is just to show you the bottle and it has a bit more contrast than it should because it looked better that way ^_^  for more accurate swatches look below. 

Prvi na redu je ovaj krasni rozi lak za nokte iz Viva Brasil limited editiona koji se zove I heart Brasil. Ova prva slika je samo da vam pokažem bočicu i ima malo više kontrasta nego što bi trebala, jer mi je tako bolje izgledala ^_^ , za točnije swatcheve pogledajte slike ispod.

Essence I heart Brasil lak za nokte

This is two coats with top coat in the shade. The shade could be a little bit better pigmented but you don't get a visible nail line with it, it's just my preference. It's a lighter medium pink creme, it applies nicely and with a quick dry top coat it dries quickly. I don't know about staying power since I'm wearing it for the first time today but most of nail polishes like these last at least ok on me usually. The collection is available in Kozmo and nail polishes are 13,90 kn, you get standard 8 mL with these.

Ovo su dva sloja sa top coatom u sjeni. Ova nijansa bi mogla biti malo bolje pigmentirana, ali ne vidi se linija nokta s njom, to je samo pitanje moje preferencije. Ovo je srednja svjetlija kremasta roza, lijepo se nanosi i sa brzosušećim top coatom se brzo osuši. Još ne mogu pričati o tome koliko dugo ostaje na noktima, jer je danas prvi put nosim, ali ovakvi lakovi na meni uobičajeno bar ok traju. Ova kolekcija je dostupna u Kozmo drogerijama i lakovi su 13,90 kn i sadrže uobičajenih 8 mL.

And here it is in the sun, you can see a little bit of a VNL but it doesn't show up like that in person. I really like the color, what do you think about it? Did you get anything from this collection? I think the blushes are gorgeous but I really can't justify the purchase, though I couldn't justify these polishes either but I couldn't resist them (if there is sun, tomorrow you'll get the swatch of the yellow one).

I evo je i na suncu, može se na slikama primijetiti malo linija nokta, ali se to ne primijeti uživo. Stvarno mi se sviđa boja, što vi mislite o njoj? Jeste li kupili išta iz ove kolekcije? Meni su rumenila prekrasna, ali stvarno ne mogu opravdat tu kupovinu, nisam baš ni ove lakove, ali im nisam mogla odoljet (ako me sunce posluži sutra ce swatch žutog).

Beauty UK In the buff

It was a long time ago when I last showed you one of my Beauty UK lipsticks so I said to myself I could do it today since I have had these swatches for ages.

Nisam vam odavno pokazala neki od svojih  Beauty UK ruževa, pa rekoh mogla bi danas kad već ove swatcheve imam od stoljeća sedmog. 

Beauty UK In the buff ruz za usne

This is Beauty UK In the buff, nice corally pink color, on me it looks slightly more pink, on some other undertone it would probably show up more on the coral side I think. Here it's shot in the shade, this shade is creamy and applies nicely. As the rest of the Beauty UK lipsticks it smells of peppermint and slightly cools the lips, but it doesn't dry them out. As always it would be good to have prepared lips but it doesn't accentuate every flaw.

Ovo je Beauty UK In the buff lijepa koraljno roza boja, koja na meni čini mi se povlači malo više na rozo, na nekom drugom podtonu bi možda neka druga komponenta više došla do izražaja. Ovdje je slikana u sjeni, nijansa je kremasta lijepo se nanosi, kao i ostali Beauty Uk ruževi miriše na mentu i pomalo hladi usne, ali ne isušuje. Poželjno je imat dobro pripremljene usne, al ne ističe svaku manu. 

ruzicasto koraljni ruz za usne

Here it is in the sun :) It's a nice everyday shade which can be worn with a lot of make up looks. As the rest of their lipsticks they can be bought in Kozmo stores for 27 kn. If you haven't seen I have swatches of Snob and Plumalicious too. Tell me which is your favorite shade if you have tried them and if you didn't do you want to?

Evo ga i na suncu :) Ugodna svakodnevna nijansa ide na puno lookova. Kao i ostali njihovi ruževi mogu se kupiti u Kozmu za 27 kn. Ako niste vidjeli imam swatcheve i Snob i Plumalicious nijanse. Recite mi koja je vaša omiljena nijansa njihovih ruževa ako ste ih probali do sada, ako niste imate li želju?

And to finish this, here is a kiss for putting up with me and my disappearances lately and so you can see how I wore this lipstick today  :D Good night everyone :)

Za kraj evo vam jedan kiss od mene što me trpite unatoč čestim nestajanjima u zadnje vrijeme, a i da vidite kako sam danas nosila ovaj ruž :D Laku noć svima :)

Greška u našim zvijezdama (video)

Već neko vrijeme mi se motaju dvije stvari po glavi, kako moram ponovno počet snimati i kako mi treba i mali odmak od beauty tema. Odlučih se da bi bilo najbolje posnimiti nekakav review filma ili knjige i kako je ovo jedna od aktualnijih tema spojih oboje i odlučih se pričati o Grešci u našim zvijezdama.


Jeste li vi pročitali ovu knjigu ili pogledali ovaj film? Kakvi su vaši dojmovi?

Avon Red Velvet

 Second of the Avon Gel finish nail polishes I have is Red velvet and I wore it day before yesterday so I thought it would be best if I showed it to you today :)

Drugi od Avon Gel finish lakova za nokte koji imam je Red Velvet i nosila sam ga prekjučer pa sam pomislila kako bi bilo najbolje da vam ga pokažem danas :)

avon red velvet red nail polish

This is two coats without top coat in the shade. This is a wonderful rich red with a lot of depth and it's perfect all year round. I need to mattify it one day I think it will look amazing like that too. Amount is the usual 12 mL currently for 35 kn. Standard straight brush, very nice consistency and pigmentation if you are careful and you want it this can be a one coater and we all love those :D

Ovo su dva sloja bez top coata u sjeni. Ovo je divna, bogata crvena nijansa koja ima posebnu dubinu i savršena je tokom cijele godine. Moram je probati i matirati jedan dan, jer mislim da će i tako izgledati sjajno. Količina laka je uobičajenih 12 mL i trenutno im je cijena 35 kn. Standardna ravna četkica, jako dobra konzistencija i pigmentiranost, ako ste pažljivi i to želite ova nijansa se može nanijeti u samo jednom sloju, a svi obožavamo takve lakove :D

And this is in the sun you can see the richness and the shimmer of this shade. It looks stunning in the sun it's a very regal color and I know I'll wear it a lot, summer, winter, whatever occasion :D How do you like this shade, is it something you would try or not? Other Avon Gel finish swatch that I have is Royal Vendetta so check it out if you already haven't and have a nice day :)

I ovo je na suncu, možete vidjet kako je nijansa bogata shimmerom koji onda bliješti. Izgleda predivno na suncu, baš je kraljevska boja i znam da ću je jako puno nositi bez obzira na prilike i doba godine :D Kako vam se sviđa ova nijansa, jel nešto što bi isprobale ili ne? Drugi Avon Gel finish swatch koji imam je Royal Vendetta pa pogledajte ako ga niste do sad vidjeli i uživajte u ostatku dana :)

Essence Get big lashes volume boost waterproof mascara

This might be my favorite mascara ever, well at least for now. I've already mentioned it a few times around here but I thought it definitely deserved a post of its own since I like it so much. 

Ovo je moguće moja najdraža maskara ikad, bar zasad. Već sam je prije spominjala nekoliko puta, ali budući da mi se toliko sviđa definitivno zaslužuje vlastiti post. 

Essence Get big lashes volume boost vodootporna maskara

This is Essence Get big lashes volume boost waterproof mascara, you can see it has a big bristly brush which I love even though sometimes it can be a bit messy but if you are careful it's ok. This mascara contains 12 mL and it costs around 23 kn which is super cheap for a mascara like this.

Ovo je  Essence Get big lashes volume boost vodootporna maskara, kao što vidite ima veliku četkicu s prirodnim vlaknima, koja je meni osobno super iako ponekad treba jako paziti da se ne zamulja oko oka. Ova maskara ima 12 mL i cijena joj je negdje oko 23 kn što je super jeftino za ovakvu maskaru. 

Essence Get big lashes volume boost jedan sloj

This is one coat and quite enough for a daily look. This mascara is really waterproof, I even tried it while swimming and it last really well, if you have really oily under eye it might melt a little, but blotting powder usually solves that. It doesn't flake or clump.

Ovo je jedan sloj što mi je dovoljno za dnevni look. Ova maskara je stvarno vodootporna, čak sam je probavala i na kupanju i super se drži, jedino ako imate masno okoloočno područje se malo rastopi u uljima, ali puder za matiranje to uobičajeno rješava. Ne trusi se niti stvara grudice.

Essence Get big lashes volume boost dva sloja

This is two coats and usually what I go for :) This mascara usually lasts me 4-5 months and it dries slowly during that time, the best is sometimes in the middle.

Ovo su dva sloja i ono kako je uobičajeno nosim :) Ova maskara mi uobičajeno traje 4-5 mjeseci i pomalo se suši tokom vremena, a najbolja mi je taman negdje u sredini tog perioda.

Essence Get big lashes volume boost tri sloja

This is three coats and it's perfect for a night out or with some smokey eye, it gives volume to my lashes and it keeps them curled (even though they are slightly curled already and I use lash curler on a regular basis). Have you tried this mascara? I'm finishing my second tube and I'm definitely repurchasing. :)

Ovo su tri sloja i taman za izlazak ili uz smokey eye, daje volumen trepavicama i drži ih uvijenima (iako one su uobičajeno lagano uvijene i koristim uvijač za trepavice na redovnoj bazi). Jeste probali ovu maskaru? Ja sam već pri kraju druge tubice i definitivno je kupujem ponovno :)
