This Week's Darlings #3

5/31/2014



Another week is coming to an end and also month of May is stepping right out the door. I know, amazing observation, right there. In terms of beauty, this week was a time of revelations and rediscoveries. Whilst today is quite chilly outside, on average - the past week was somewhat satisfactory and brought a few really nice, sunny days. During the warmer weather, I've got reintroduced to the Caudalie Beauty Elixir. I know, I know - I have noted in my review that it wasn't worth the hype for me. It's still questionable if a face spritz is worth the extra cash but I have noticed that it works far better for me during warmer weather rather during winter. It probably has more impact on the psyche and the state of mind while the minty, almost bitter and refreshing scent fills the air. I do love some of that. L'Occitane Angelica Hydra Vital Gel needs to special words here - I've written an ode to this amazing moisturizer. If you have oily or combo skin and fret about how they will go through sweaty summer - this is your guy! Another face cream I'm loving at the moment is the La Roche-Posay Effaclat Mat. The heat gets to my skin and I do need some help to mattify my complexion. I especially find this face cream great for when I'm wearing a dewy make-up on top. It definitely makes a difference. Expect a review next week. Make-up-wise, I am adoring the MAC Pure Zen lipstick! I think that I'm turning into a lipstick girl, through and through. I have no idea why I felt so apprehensive towards this brand in the past but now I feel like I want to try everything. Lipsticks and blushes seem especially appealing. Pure Zen is the most gorgeous nude I've ever seen, worn, owned. It's absolutely divine and I'll be demonstrating how it looks on me very soon. After embarking on the Urban Decay eye shadow palette territory, I have neglected mono eye shadows completely. However, this pretty basic yet amazingly wearable Calvin Klein eye shadow in Granite (09) really floats my boat. Beautiful gray shade with tiny speckles of micro shimmer. Looks amazing on its own and is a perfect base for a sensual smokey-eye. Finally, I'll be leaving a photo of a mani I did last night. I've used Essie Ballet Slippers, Revelique Glitter nail polish in Tiara and some shiny, silver nail art tape I got from bornprettystore.com. Definitely fave mani of the week.

Jos jedna sedmica je pri kraju a i mjesec maj je doslovno na pragu izlaznih vrata. Znam, fantasticno opazanje. Sto se tice ljepote, ova sedmica je obiljezena nekim novim pronalascima kao i drugom sansom za proizvod koji me nije odusevio. Tokom ovih par toplijih dana koje smo imali, uzivala sam u Caudalie Beauty Elixir izmaglici za lice. Mozda ovaj odabir iznenadjuje jer se jako dobro sjecam da sam u recenziji ove izmaglice zakljucila kako po mom misljenju nije vrijedna ogromne medijske paznje koja joj se posvecuje. I zaista je itekako upitno da li je ulaganje vise novca u proizvod poput izmaglice za lice dobra odluka. Jos uvijek vijecam oko toga no ono sto jesam primjetila jeste da mi mnogo vise odgovara tokom toplijeg vremena nego npr.tokom zime, kada sam je recenzirala. Vjerovatno vise utjecaja ima na psihu i stanje uma ima nego na samu kozu jer mentolasti, skoro pa gorak miris koji zapara zrak zaista osvjezava i razbudjuje. To mi se dopada. L'Occitane Andjelika Hydra Vital gel za lice je nesto o cemu se ne usudjujem previse pisati sada - pa, natipkala sam mu cijelu odu u recenziji! Ono sto vrijedi spomenuti je da ako imate masnu ili mjesovitu kozu i bojite se kako ce reagovati na probleme kakve visoke temperature nose (visak sebuma, znoj, zacepljene pore) - ovo je krema koju vrijedi isprobati! Jos jedna krema za lice kojom sam odusevljena je La Roche-Posay Effaclar Mat. Visoke temperature mi se zlocesto poigraju sa kozom svake godine i potrebno mi je nesto efektno za matiranje tena. Ova kremica mi se pokazala posebno zgodnom kao baza kada se odlucim na make-up 'dewy' efekta. Svaki put lijepo izbalansira ten i o Effaclar Mat cete citati iduce sedmice. Sto se tice same kozmetike, naprosto sam ocarana MAC Pure Zen ruzem za usne! Mislim da definitivno prelazim na ruzeve i postaju mi jako dragi komadi kozmetike koje sada cesto nosim. Nisam sigurna zasto sam oduvijek bila rezervisana prema ovom brendu no otkako sam isprobala ovaj ruz, imam zelju da isprobam toliko toga. Ruzevi za usne i rumenila su mi posebno primamljiva. Pure Zen je ruz za koji cu bez imalo ustrucavanja vec sada reci kako je najbolji nude ruz za usne koji sam nosila, imala, vidjela, isprobala - u cijelom zivotu. Da, toliko mi se svidja i uskoro cu demonstrirati kako izgleda na meni. Nakon sto sam osjetila cari Urban Decay paleta sjena za oci, moram priznati da sam opasno zapostavila mono sjene. Ipak se jedna iskazala a to je prilicno jednostavna no jako lijepa Calvin Klein sjena u nijansi Granite (09). Radi se o klasicno lijepoj sivoj nijansi koja je prozeta sitnim cesticama shimmera. Lijepo izgleda samostalno na ocima no i divna je baza za senzualan smokey-eye. I za kraj ostavljam spontano napravljenu fotku manikira koji sam napravila sinoc oko jedan sat ujutro (ne znam ni sama sta me spopalo). Koristila sam Essie Ballet Slippers i Revelique Glitter lak za nokte u nijansi Tiara. Poseban efekat su stvorile nail art trakice nabavljene sa bornprettystore.com stranice. Ovo je ubjedljivo najdrazi manikir sedmice.
