Spring makeup haul: ESSENCE (lip glosses, mascaras, nail polishes...)

ESSENCE 2015 makeup haul lipglosses, mascaras, nail polishes

In Europe, Essence is known as a very affordable brand, and to my satisfaction most of their products are available both in Greece and Serbia. Target group are the younger generations, so the packaging is very trendy, simple and irresistibly charming!

Essence je u Evropi poznat kao vrlo pristupacan brend, i na moje zadovoljstvo vecina njihovih proizvoda je dostupna i u Grckoj i u Srbiji. Ciljna grupa jesu mladje generacije, stoga su i sva pakovanja vrlo trendi, jednostavna i neodoljivo simpaticna!

Essence sminka 2015 kupovina

Half of the products you see in the pictures I bought in Greece and the other half in Serbia! Shopping list includes:
- XXXL lip glosses: two with glossy effect in coral and pink shades (spring perfection!) and one with a matte finish in nude shade. Glossy ones are very dense, slightly sticky, they smell great and remain long on the lips, while the lip gloss with matte-effect has a creamy texture and it's lighter than the first two glosses.
- Long-lasting lipstick in a light brown (better say nude) color, which is not quite as long-lasting as it should be, but it doesn't dry the lips and the shade is great. 
- Two "top-coat" nail polishes, one with sequins that matches perfectly with any base polish in a brighter color, and one with the "sand-effect" which I haven't tried yet.
- Two mascaras: one with an innovative brush that rotates (although I prefer to use it in the usual way), and one for "multi-effect" which is drier than the previous one and has a larger brush that very finely separates the lashes.
- Concealer that has a dry texture, which personally fits me perfectly because I don't have to additionally use pressed/loose powder in order to set the concealer.

Spring 2015 Hair: Hair cut + Hair color + Hair care

spring hair: hair cut and hair color and hair care

Some 10 days ago I decided to niceeeeely (more than 3 cm) cut the split ends, and to freshen the hair color that has become too bright and somewhat undefined. Last time I chose a very dark shade of chocolate that seemed a bit blackish, but this time I wanted something a bit lighter yet still darker than what I had. You still follow me, right?:)

Pre jedno 10-tak dana sam resila da finooooo (tj vise od 3cm) skratim rascvetale vrhove i da malo osvezim boju koja je postala previse svetla i nekako nedefinisana. Prosli put sam izabrala vrlo tamnu nijansu cokolade koja je pomalo vukla na crno, ali ovaj put sam htela nesto za nijansu svetlije ali opet tamnije od onoga sto sam imala. Jel' me i dalje pratite?:)

Le Petit Marseillais Conditioner.Aussie Frizz Miracle shampoo.

In the end I decided to choose something that is closest to my natural color, so my hairdresser mixed two colors, and I remember that one of them was called "cappuccino". As the color developed on my little head, it looked really light and I was a bit scared (would you please tell me if there is a phobia of "too bright shade of the hair color", so at least I know what I suffer from?!). A slight feeling of anxiety was following me until we washed off the color and began to dry the hair, and then that feeling was replaced with "analyzing" the result.

The Best NUDE/NEUTRAL Eyeshadow Palettes EVER!!!!

The Best NUDE/NEUTRAL Eyeshadow Palettes EVER

From the moment when Urban Decay introduced its first eyeshadow palette called "Naked", the world went completely crazy for the nude shades! Instagram and Pinterest are full of pictures with "Naked"/"Naked2"/"Naked3" and other variants of the iconic palette, and all other brands realized that this mania for neutral shades won't stop soon so they began to focus on beige and brownish palettes.
Neutral shades suit absolutely everyone regardless of the shape and color of the eyes, you can wear them "from morning 'till tomorrow", and they really are a basic piece of makeup (such as mascara or powder) that each lady should have, not matter if she is or she's not a fan of makeup...
I collected (with huge pleasure!!) all the nude/neutral palettes that are hit on the market, and I hope my choice might help you. The list includes brands like: Urban Decay, Benefit, Bobbi Brown, Smashbox, Nars, Stila, Too Faced, Tarte, Marc Jacobs, Kat Von D, Becca, Clinique and others. Enjoy my beautiful!;)

Od trenutka kada je Urban Decay pre par godina predstavio svoju prvu paletu senki za oci "Naked", zenski svet je prosto poludeo za "nude" nijansama! Instagram i Pinterest su krcati slikama sa "Naked"/"Naked2"/"Naked3" i ostalim varijantama ikonske palete, a svi ostali brendovi su uvideli pomamu za neutralnim nijansama te i sami poceli da se fokusiraju na bez i braonkaste palete.
Neutralne nijanse pristaju apsolutno svima bez obzira na oblik i boju ociju, mozete ih nositi "od jutra do sutra" i zaista su bazican komad sminke (kao sto je maskara ili puder) koji bi svaka pripadnica lepseg pola trebalo da ima, bez obzira da li je ljubitelj sminkanja ili ne... 
Ja sam za vas sa zadovoljstvom prikupila sve neutralne palete senki koje su hit na trzistu, i nadam se da ce vam moj izbor pomoci. Lista ukljucuje brendove kao sto su: Urban Decay, Benefit, Bobbi Brown, Smashbox, Nars, Stila, Too Faced, Tarte, Marc Jacobs, Kat Von D, Becca, Clinique i druge! Uzivajte lepe moje!;)

Cera di Cupra: ROSA face cream for dry skin

Cera di Cupra: ROSA face cream for dry skin with beeswax

To be honest I do not know if I'd ever personally buy this cream (although I have tried several Cera di Cupra's face-cleansing products), but luckily I got "Rosa" cream as a gift. I say luckily because it was my "good ally" in the last one month or two...
"Rosa" cream is designed for dry skin, and can be used both as a day and as a night cream. It extremely nourishes the skin thanks to the beeswax, but it also protects from the weather conditions that can cause damage to our skin: smog, wind, sun... It's has a very dense texture, it's rich in natural ingredients, and reminds me of "Pavloviceva" cream (they even smell the same) which is actually a baby care ointment made in Serbia.

Iskrena da budem ne znam da li bi mi ikada palo na pamet da licno kupim ovu kremu (iako sam nekoliko Cera di Cupra proizvoda za ciscenje lica probala), ali srecom "Rosa" kremu sam dobila na poklon. Kazem srecom jer mi je bila "dobar saveznik" u poslednjih mesec-dva dana...
"Rosa" krema je namenjena suvoj kozi, i moze se koristiti i kao dnevna i kao nocna krema. Izuzetno hrani kozu zahvaljujuci pcelinjem vosku, ali je i stiti od vremenskih uslova koji mogu naneti stetu nasoj kozi: smog, vetar, suncevi zraci... Vrlo je guste teksture, bogata prirodnim sastojcima, i podseca me na nasu "Pavlovicevu" kremu (cak i mirise slicno).

Everyday casual chic: Gray Leopard

Outfit of the day everyday casual chic

I can finally say that spring has arrived here where I am!:) The sun shines every day, the temperature is higher and layers of clothes are "thinner"! No more long coats, thick jackets, heavy turtlenecks, woolen scarves and gloves...
Although one woolen skirt can look quite fine in this transitional period, if combined with a thinner blouse or a top. Something like "everyday casual chic" option. That was my basic idea for this outfit, and later I added my favorite Bershka leather jacket, purse in the same tone and platform boots...

Konacno mogu reci da je prolece stiglo ovde gde sam ja!:) Sunce sija svakog dana, temperatura je visa, a slojevi odece "stanjeni"! Nema vise dugih kaputa, debelih jakni, teskih rolki, vunenih salova i rukavica...
Mada jedna vunena suknja moze fino da izgleda u ovom tranzitnom periodu ako se ukombinuje sa tanjom bluzom ili topom. Nesto kao "svakodnevna casual chic" varijanta. To je bila moja bazicna ideja za ovaj outfit, a naknadno sam dodala omiljenu koznu Bershka jaknu, tasnicu u istom tonu i cizme na platformu...

Rimmel: Clean Finish foundation in Sand (330)

Rimmel Clean Finish foundation in Sand (330)

Arrival of spring (ok, as well as the change of each season) definitely means a change in the makeup routine. When it comes to the shades of liquid foundation, all foundations that I use during the spring are for the medium complexion, and very often the shades are called "sand" (although there are no rules, it all depends on the brand).

Dolazak proleca (ok i promena svakog godisnjeg doba) definitivno znaci promenu u mejkap rutini. Kad su nijanse tecnih pudera u pitanju, svi puderi koje koristim tokom proleca su namenjeni "medium" tj srednje tamnom tenu, i vrlo cesto nose oznaku "sand" (mada nema pravila, sve zavisi od brenda).

Rimmel Clean finish tecni puder u nijansi Sand za masnu kozu

Recently I got a couple of liquid foundations, and one of them is Rimmel's "Clean finish" foundation in Sand (330) shade, which is not really new on the market. Enriched with vitamins A and E, it supposedly offers "100% poreless" finish. It comes in a glass bottle of 30ml, and is applied with the help of small spatula. When you take the applicator out from the bottle, that amount of product is really enough for one application.
