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. 

L'Oreal Mega volume Miss manga maskara

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.

Bare lashes for comparison

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 :)
