Winter Skincare favourites

Although there's no snow yet it's been getting pretty cold lately. I've found a few products that I really like to use during this time of the year. They keep my skin hydrated and nourished.

Essence Glitter in the Air Strobing Collection

I wanted to write a post about Essence Glitter in the Air TE products before I went to Malta but I completely forgot about it. Obviously.

NYX Lip Lingerie in Ruffle Trim + MAC Whirl Comparison

So here's a short summary: "I should've waited with buying Mac Whirl."

Makeup Revolution Precision Contour Oval Brushes

Makeup Revolution Precision Contour

Makeup Revolution has released a set of oval brushes that are affordable (in contrast to the Artis oval brushes) and good quality. Oval brushes trend is pretty big right now and you've probably seen them in numerous youtube videos etc. 

The design of the Makeup Revolution brushes immediately draw my attention. Handles are in a rose gold colour and they look quite expensive in my opinion. The Precision Contour set contains three oval brushes. Makeup Revolution claims that the oval brushes are designed to adapt to the shape of your face, providing the most flexible movement for flawless application. These brushes are made with extremely fine and super densely packed synthetic hair. They are really soft to touch and don't shedd.

L'Occitane Arlésienne

Moja L'Occitane zgodba

L'Occitane se je v moj spomin vtisnil kot stvaritelj čudovitih in razkošnih arom. Moje prvo srečanje s francosko znamko L'Occitane sega v najstniška leta. Takrat me je očarala vodica "Eau de Miel", ki jo je uporabljala stričeva partnerka. Vonj te toaletne vodice je v mojem spominu, vse do današnjega dne ostal kot eden izmed najbolj očarljivih in prijetnih stvari, kar sem jih kadarkoli vonjala. Je vonj, ki me spominja na začetke mojega "spogledovanja" s parfumi. 


In terms of innovation and effective ingredients Korea has always been the leading beauty market. Cushion systems are pretty popular there, so it was just a matter of time when the rest of the world would adapt this trend.
At first I wanted to buy Loreal's Nude Magique cushion, but their shades were all too dark for me. Instead I bought KIKO's CC Cream Cushion Compact System which is available in 12 different shades.

My Beauty Box July: "Bronzed Beauty"

Douglas Box of Beauty - June

Today I'll be showing you the content of Douglas Box of Beauty - June Edition.

June Favourites

I discovered some great beauty products in this past month. 
I finally bought Balea Wasser Spray, a great refreshment spray for summer. This can also be used as a Makeup Fixing Spray, but I'm sceptical about that, since this basically is just water in a can. 

DM Jubiläumsbox Oral-B

I managed to get my hands on the limited DM Jubiläumsbox filled with Oral-B products. Austrian Dm Drogerie Markt released this box to celebrate their 40th birthday. The price for this box was 7,50€ (total value around 90€). 

What's inside the "DM Jubiläumsbox"?

Golden Rose "My lips but better" lipsticks

I'm really starting to like Golden Rose. I finally found two lipstick shades that are perfect for my fair skin. The pigmentation is very good and they're also super affordable, which is always a plus.

Douglas Box of Beauty - April

Yes, I know I'm kind of late to the party. But, better late than never, right?

Chocolate on the go

Brace yourself. Exams are coming and my daily intake levels of chocolate are rising. So what better way of beating the everyday (college) stress than with chocolate, right?
Mojač was very kind and sent me two Rawr Organic Chocolates of my own choosing. I chose Organic Chocolate with Goji Berries & Vanilla and Organic Lucuma Cacao Bar. The one thing that's absolutely worth mentioning is that Rawr Chocolates are produced raw, organic, dairy-free and also contain fairtrade ingredients.

Bargain: H&M Beauty Sale

There used to be a friend who very much enjoyed mocking me because I always got the best deals (whether it was through research of the prices or pure luck). He baptized me as "The Bargain Queen". So I thought I'd share with you a great deal I discovered yesterday when I was at H&M in Citypark (Ljubljana). 

Birthday Makeup Picks


First thing's first: Primer. Oriflame's The One Illuskin Face Primer is an absolute must if you like the "dewy look". I tried this on bare skin without foundation and it looks astonishing. I recently bought the Immaculate Compact Foundation (shade Porcelain) in H&M. This really isn't the greatest compact foundation known to mankind, but it does a solid job (at least for me, since foundation is rather an accessory than necessity for me). For undereye circles I've been using and loving Catrice's Liquid Camouflage concealer (I needed a bit time to become friends with this one though). Another great product that I recently ordered  is E.l.f.'s Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder (shade Fiji-Matte). I find these two shades very beautiful and easy to blend. Besides, this duos (various shades) cost 3$, so you can't really go wrong with them.

A great article about Coachella: "The Appeal of the Coachella Way of Life"

I thought I'd share with you a wonderful article from The New Yorker, about the Coachella Music Festival. Here's the link: CLICK.

Real Techniques Collector's Edition Deluxe Gift Set

I've always been minimalistic when it comes to makeup brushes. Well I still am. I'm definitely not a hoarder. When it comes to applying makeup the only thing I really need is a good eyeshadow blending brush, a foundation sponge/Beautyblender and a rouge/bronzer brush and I'm good to go. So when I saw this set I thought I'd give it a go, since I never owned a Real Techniques brush before. And I'm not going to lie: I immediately fell in love in the metallic brush design.

Moj pristop do ličenja bi označila kot minimalističen. Nikoli nisem potrebovala "gore ličil", pač pa le nekaj kvalitetnih produktov, ki odlično opravijo svojo nalogo. Ponavadi za nanos ličil potrebujem le odličen čopič za nanašanje senčil (ki dobro poveže senčila med sabo in omogoči mehke prehode), gobico oz. Beautyblender za nanos tekoče podlage in čopič za rdečilo/bronzer. Ker nikoli nisem imela čopiča znamke Real Techniques, sem se odločila, da preizkusim set, ki vsebuje pet osnovnih čopičev za ličenje.

5 Practical Travel Sized Beauty Bites

I'm the type of person that doesn't like to take a massive amount of make up with me, everywhere I go. I have a small cosmetic bag where I fit all the essentials I think I'll need during the day. So especially handy come travel sized products. They fit easily in my cosmetic bag and are also super cute. I selected five mini products that really deliver and are with me on a daily basis.
