This Week's Darlings #5

6/21/2014


Woohoo - it's time for a new post, called This Week's Darlings #5 and it's so lovely to finally feel that I'm getting consistent with sticking to a certain 'series' of blog posts. I must say, one of best decisions I've ever made regarding this blog was sticking to changes I've announced in my Big Blog Spring Clean. I definitely feel like these posts are more 'me' and I find it easier to write about things I love more frequently this way. See, changes are sometimes very good. As for my weekly fave beauty bits, I don't have too many but I find that this is a nicely selected bunch. Let's start with the eye area faves as we have two in that department. Nuxe Anti-Fatigue Moisturizing Eye Cream is officially the best all-round eye cream I've found so far. It's of such a lovely texture - intensely moisturizing (nourishing even) but not heavy on that area's gentle skin. It makes my eyes feel and look refreshed and any concealer simply glides over it like butter. Extremely comfortable eye cream to wear, I use it in the morning and before bed time. Concealer I'm loving at the moment is Revelique Touch Up Concealer in Natural (40). Initially, when I first got it I really liked it but my attention was drawn away by all the Bourjois, Collistar and L'Occitane concealers. Rightfully so as they are all amazing but this Revelique's offering is ticking all the boxes for me during summer days. This shade will probably suit medium skin tones rather than fair ones as it's of a rather warm undertone. It seems a bit peachy and it's brilliant at counteracting dark under-eye circles. Not only does it act as a regular concealer, it also gently illuminates the eye area. It's one of those click-y pens such as the YSL Touche Eclat and I'm always partial to those. theBalm's Mary Lou-Manizer Luminizer is a gorgeous, gorgeous make-up product and I love it to bits. It's the best highlighter/illuminator that you can get for a decent amount of money. Because I'm completely focused on mattifying my skin, I'm also aware that it can get across as dull if I mattify it too much. That's where Mary-Lou comes in - it provides a sexy sheen exactly where I want. Cloudy weather got to me and I turned to Essie's Bahama Mama nail polish which was on my nails for at least five out of seven days this week. Although its name is utterly tropical, Bahama Mama is mainly considered to be a winter appropriate nail polish. Rules are made to be broken and I've enjoyed every minute of this beauty riding my talons. Such a beautiful shade, will be feature on the blog soon. And finally, the star of this post - YSL Kiss&Blush in Rouge Effrontée (#5 just like the name of this post!). Aah, isn't it a beaut? YSL can do no wrong in my eyes, all their make-up is absolutely flawless and in a nutshell - YSL is my favorite high-end make-up brand. For a reason! My fave foundation is their Le Teint Touche Eclat and they won me over with this multitasking little miracle. Intended to use on both, lips and cheeks - it's divine. I am so looking forward to reviewing it as it's a stunner! As for my cute photo props - I'm in love with these mini wild rose buds. They are so lovely. I'm also having a phase of above knuckle rings and have been wearing them almost daily this past week. How do you feel about this week's darlings? See anything you like?

Woohoo - vrijeme je za novi post pod nazivom Ovosedmicni favoriti #5 i tako je lijepo vidjeti da sam ostala dosljedna svim odlukama i novim 'serijalima' postova na blogu. Moram priznati kako je uvodjenje nekih promjena na blogu definitivno jedna od najboljih odluka koje sam donijela u posljednje vrijeme. Ako vas zanima sto sam to izmijenila, mozete sve o tome procitati u postu Veliko proljetno pospremanje bloga. Jednostavno osjecam kako su sadasnji postovi vise u mom fazonu, dosta mi je lakse pisati o svim beauty stvarcicama koje volim na ovaj nacin i zaista su neke promjene itekako dobro dosle. Sto se tice ovosedmicnih favorita, nije ih isuvise mnogo ali su pomno odabrana druzina. Pocnimo od favorita za okoloocno podrucje posto ih imam dva.  Nuxe Anti-Fatigue hidratantna okoloocna krema je zvanicno najbolja krema ove vrste koju sam do sada otkrila. Tako je krasne teksture - intenzivno hidrira (hrani cak) njeznu kozicu oko ociju no uopste nije masna niti teska. Zaista lijepo osvjezi okoloocno podrucje a i svaki korektor preko ove kremice klizi poput putera. Izuzetno ugodna za nositi, pogodna je za jutarnju ali i nocnu upotrebu. Korektor u koji sam trenutno zaljubljena je Revelique Touch Up korektor u nijansi Natural (40). Kada sam ga prvi put isprobala, jako mi se dopao ali su mi paznju odvukli Bourjois, Collistar i L'Occitane korektori. Sasvim opradvano jer su takodjer izvrsni no Revelique malisan mi mozda najvise odgovara za koristenje tokom ljetnih dana. Natural (40) nijansa ce vjerovatno bolje odgovarati srednje tamnim tonovima koze nego svijetlim posto je toplijeg podtona. Cak je pomalo i breskvaste nijanse te je odlican u neutralizovanju tamnih podocnjaka. Osim sto pruza solidnu prekrivnost, ponasa se i kao njezni ilumnator. U pitanju je pakovanje u olovci i aktivira se okretanjem dna - nesto jako slicno YSL Touche Eclat korektoru/iluminatoru a oduvijek sam bila 'slaba' na takve proizvode. theBalm Mary Lou-Manizer Luminizer je prekrasan, prekrasan kozmeticki proizvod koji mi je takodjer i jako drag. Mislim da je najbolji hajlajter/iluminator koji mozete pronaci za pristojnu cijenu. Posto sam posvecena matiranju koze u posljednje vrijeme, svjesna sam mogucnosti da isuvise matiran ten moze djelovati bezivotno. Upravo tada uskace Mary-Lou da podari seksi sjaj tacno gdje zelim. Prilicno oblacno vrijeme ove sedmice je ucinilo da cesce nosim Essie Bahama Mama lak za nokte. Iako je tropskog naziva, Bahama Mama slovi za jedan od ljepsih zimskih lakova. Posto su pravila tu da bi bila prekrsena - itekako sam uzivala noseci ovog ljepotana na nokticima protekle sedmice. Tako je lijepe nijanse i recenzija ce se pojaviti na blogu uskoro. I napokon, zvijezda ovog posta - YSL Kiss&Blush u nijansi Rouge Effrontée (broj je 5, kao sto je i ovaj post!). Zar nije prekrasan prizor? YSL nikada ne moze pogrijesiti u mojim ocima, sve njihove make-up kolekcije su besprijekorne i ukratko - YSL je meni omiljeni high-end kozmeticki brend. Omiljena tecna podloga svih vremena je za mene njihova Le Teint Touche Eclat a osvojili su me i ovim multiprakticnim cudom. Proizvod namijenjen koristenju na usnama ali i obrazima - oduzima dah. Jako se radujem recenziranju ovog ljepotana! Sto se tice rekvizita sa fotografija, zaljubljena sam u ove mini divlje ruzice. Tako su ljupke. Takodjer prolazim kroz fazu malenih prstencica koji se nose iznad zglobova prstica. Nosila sam ih, cini mi se, svaki dan ove sedmice. Recite mi sta mislite o ovom postu? Da li vam se mozda neka sitnica dopala?
