This Week's Darlings #14

9/20/2014



Well, it's that time of the week again - time to rally up the best, the most used and most coveted beauty items of the past seven days. It's always a mix of make-up and skincare with me plus an occasional added bonus from the body or hair categories. Everything's been quite the same at those fronts so shall we go over to the really interesting bit? This Week's Darlings #14 I see as an 'safe' pile as these are all the things I use on almost a daily basis anyways but this week I've been ramping up nourishing levels so, naturally, gals with dry lips will share this favorite with me - Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm which is a life savior. A firm favorite and a staple, Nuxe honey balm is a constant night time lip treatment which I always keep on my bedside table. However, as Autumn means lipstick season for me, I need to take care of my puckers even more so and Nuxe comes in as a lip lifeguard 24/7. Couldn't live without it! My paws are also in a constant need of some TLC and during the day, I usually have a tube (or two) of any of the L'Occitane travel hand creams. They suit and serve me well while I'm on the go but when I'm at home, I bring out the big guns. Burt's Bees Beeswax & Banana Hand Cream is the best nourishing hand cream I have in my arsenal and it's bloody terrific. It completely gets rid of the dry, flaky, white skin I get on my fingers from constant hand washing (freaky, I admit). It prepares my hands for modelling whenever I'm showing off a nail favorite and I think I'll use it up by the end of this year. Than I'll most likely get the Burt's Bees Almond Milk & Beeswax Hand Cream - oddly enough, I enjoy that earthy marzipan aroma so much! While we've mentioned nail polish favorites, I have two up my sleeve - Essie Mezmerised is an obvious one. Come on, it's absolutely stunning and I've noticed you kinda like it as well. Revelique High Shine Nail Polish in Poetry Slam is something I always whip out come Autumn. It's just the most beautiful greige hue ever - and it's so affordable! I think I'll dedicate a post in its honor and I really am sorry if Revelique is not available in your country - I know that I'm a tease sometimes. As for the rest of my make-up, I'm keeping it low profile. A regular defined brows, foundation, mascara and a lip balm routine + a little somethin' somethin' on the eyes. I've been obsessed with this L'Oreal L'Ombre Pure matte eyeshadow in Breaking Nude (106). It's perfect for defining the eye socket and I like to pair it with Daniel Sandler Long Lasting Waterproof Eyeliner in Purple Velvet. The hazy purple really makes brown eyes pop. I've got a lot of skincare in rotation at the moment and I think I'm doing something right as I'm blemish-free for months now (knock on wood). However, I have three little bits that kinda stood out for me this week. Alpha-H Micro Cleanse is the bomb - I'll have to revisit this facial exfoliant as it's something 'undupe-able'...I think you understand what I'm trying to say. There's nothing like it and my skin lurves it! Skin is prepped with Dr.Hauschka Facial Toner. I reckon I'll purchase this toner in a full size bottle since I find it amazing. I'm really loving the brand as I'm smitten with the Cleansing Cream and the Revitalizing Cream - now this toner, ooh I have to have it! Finally, an oldie but a goodie - Caudalie Vinosource S.O.S. Thirst Quenching Serum. The perfect Autumn/Winter time facial serum, it provides moisture whilst not upsetting oil levels at the T-zone. It completely soothes dehydrated skin and it softens it beyond oblivion. Amazing stuff. How is your skin behaving during this transitional period?

Prije nego smo se i snasli, doslo je vrijeme kada okupljamo najbolje, najdraze i najvise koristene proizvode za ovu sedmicu. Kod mene je uvijek prisutan miks njege lica i kozmetike uz slucajni 'upad' nekog iznimnog proizvoda za njegu tijela ili kose. Ove sedmice je situacija na oba fronta stagnirala tako da zaista nemam nekih vecih promjena niti otkrica za podijeliti sa vama tako da mislim kako mozemo preci na najbolji dio, zar ne? Najdraze ove sedmice #14 vidim kao grupicu stvarcica koje su 'siguran' izbor i tu se nalazi dosta proizvoda koje koristim svakodnevno. No, ove sedmice sam pocela intenzivirati hranljivu njegu i vjerujem da ce djevojke koje dijele probleme suhih usana itekako da se sloze sa mojim izborom - Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balzam koji doslovno spasava, ako ne zivot (da ne dramatizujemo), onda barem usne. Cvrsti favorit i konstantni dio njegujuce postave, ovaj Nuxe medeni balzam je nocni treman za suhe usne koji uvijek drzim na nocnom stolicu. Cim nam se priblizi jesen, osim sto me sluzi kao nocni tretman jednostavno njegova se upotreba prosiri na cijeli dan i zaista mi je nezamjenljiv! Moje sape su takodjer uvijek suhe i tokom dana im nesumnjivo treba pomoci te uvijek imam jednu (ili dvije) putne tubice bilo koje L'Occitane kreme za ruke u svojoj torbi. Odlicno me sluze tokom dana, dok sam na poslu ili obavljam neke obaveze van kuce. No, kada sam kuci onda na red dolazi 'teska artiljerija'. Burt's Bees krema za ruke sa pcelinjim voskom i bananom je najbolja hranljiva krema za ruke koju imam u rezervama. U potpunosti me rijesi suhe, perutave i bijele koze koja mi se pojavi na prsticima od silnog pranja ruku (znam da pretjerujem sa tim). Takodjer je upravo ova krema moj izbor kada zelim ruke pripremiti da vam predstavljaju omiljene lakove za nokte. Sigurna sam kako cu ovo pakovanje kreme dovrsiti do kraja godine a potom narucujem Burt's Bees krema za ruke sa pcelinjim voskom i bademovim mlijekom - iz nekog razloga mi jako prija biljno-bademasti miris. Kada smo se vec dotakli teme omiljenih lakova za nokte, ovaj put imam dva favorita - Essie Mezmerised je, naravno, jedan od njih. Mislim da je ocigledno zasto mi se toliko dopada a primjetila sam da i vi simpatisete ovaj lak. Revelique High Shine lak za nokte u nijansi Poetry Slam je nesto sto uvijek ubacim u upotrebu cim stigne jesen. Radi se o najdivnijoj sivkasto/bez nijansi koja je takodjer i pristupacne cijene. Jako mi je zao ukoliko Revelique kozmetika nije dostupna u vasem gradu jer znam da je mozda malo frustrurajuca preporuka proizvoda koji ne mozete trenutno nabaviti. Po pitanju ostatka make-upa, stvari sam odrzavala minimalnim u smislu rutine sa definisanim obrvama, malo podloge, maskare i balzama za usne + mozda necim malo drugacijim na ocima. Protekle sedmice sam bila opcinjena sa L'Oreal L'Ombre Pure mat sjenom za oci u nijansi Breaking Nude (106). Idealna je za definiranje kontura oka i volim je kombinovati sa Daniel Sandler Long Lasting vodootpornom olovkom za oci u nijansi Purple Velvet. Izmaglica ljubicaste boje zaista cini da smedje oci djeluju jako lijepo. Trenutno isprobavam i koristim dosta preparativnih proizvoda i vjerovatno da sam dobro odabrala posto nemam bubuljica vec mjesecima (kuc, kuc o drvo). Par se proizvoda ipak istaklo. Alpha-H Micro Cleanse je fantastican proizvod - mislim da cu ponovo pisati o njemu jer me konstantno odusevljava. Mislim da je dosta jedinstven eksfolijans i moja koza odlicno reaguje na njega. Kozu njegujem i sa Dr.Hauschka tonikom za lice. Nabaviti cu i veliku bocicu ovog tonika jer ima divan efekat na kozu. Trenutno osjecam dosta ljubavi spram ovog brenda, prvo me impresionirala Krema za ciscenje i Revitalizirajuca krema - a sada i ovaj tonik koji naprosto mora biti moj! I za kraj, imamo jedan stari ali itekako dobar proizvod Caudalie Vinosource S.O.S. Thirst Quenching Serum. Ovo bi bio savrsen serum za hladnije vrijeme koji pruza intenzivnu hidrataciju no ne remeti proizvodnju sebuma na T-zoni. Spas je za dehidriranu kozu i pritom je krasno omeksava. Kako vasa koza podnosi ovo prijelazno vrijeme, tj. smjenu godisnjih doba?
