A Few Things That Go So Well Together

8/14/2015




I've been enjoying a few things lately and even though rose-pink is not the most usual summery color, I found myself using all these rosy-themed beautiful things almost on a daily basis. Most were reviewed at the blog but this new fragrance wasn't and although flankers aren't something I usually get excited about, this one's even better than the original to me. Avon Perceive Oasis EDT (50ml) is a little bit of a soft cottonball - very clean, slightly powdery, peony-based but very reminiscent of a gentle rose. Whilst the original Perceive used to clog my nostrils after a while (and I did like it initially), that never happened with the Oasis flanker. It opens up with a peony accord, violet leaf is at the heart and white musk at the base. It's interesting that it can be worn during spring and summer - it's not too sweet or too powdery even at higher temperatures. It's like a crystal vase filled with pale pink roses and peonies which doesn't loose its freshness - it's eternally feminine and youthful. That's how I perceive (excuse the pun, haha) this fragrance which many associate to Chloe EDP and the design is also lovely and follows the gentle, rosy theme. My cheeks are almost exclusively brushed with a dusting of Manhattan Powder Rouge Blush in Secret Lovers. So perky, fresh and healthy looking - this peachy/pink blush is the epitome of fresh cheeks and I cannot get enough of it. My eyes are adorned with Bourjouis Cream To Powder Eyeshadow in Petale de Glace - a stunning pale lilac which is a fab twist of the neutral eye. The way it glistens in the sunlight makes eyes appear magical and romantic (just quoting friends and colleagues on this one) and I really am impressed with how well it lasts on my lids during sweaty days. Whilst everything on this list is a rather new discovery, the lipstick I came back to is an old flame. MAC Pure Zen Lipstick (Cremesheen + Pearl) is the most stunning pale pink! So creamy and pleasant to use, it transforms any lips into blossoming petals. There's something so comforting about a reliable pinky/nude lippie which you can apply perfectly even with your eyes closed (this is the one!). Have you tried any bits from my rosy-themed favorites pile?

U posljednje vrijeme sam zaista uzivala u pojedinim proizvodima koji se vrte oko ruzicaste tematike koja mozda nije najvise prilagodjena ljetnoj sezoni. Ipak, ne mogu poreci da su mi upravo ovi proizvodi bili najdrazi za koristiti gotovo na svakodnevnoj bazi. Vecina stvari koje cu spomenuti je u proslosti bila recenzirana na blogu, osim novog mirisa. Iako flankeri obicno nisu nesto oko cega se uzbudjujem, ovog puta cu se cak usuditi da kazem kako mi se flanker vise dopada od originala. Avon Perceive Oasis EDT (50ml) bih opisala poput mekane, pamucne bombice - jako je cist, njezno puderast miris na bazi bozura iako se osjeti i prizvuk ruze. Dok je originalni Perceive miris nerijetko zagusivao moje nosnice (a zaista mi se kao miris na pocetku i dopao), takvo se nesto ne desava sa Oasis inacicom. Miris se otvara akordom bozura, list ljubicice se nalazi u srcu dok bijeli mosus sacinjava bazu.  Ono sto je interesantno kod ovog mirisa jeste sto je pogodan za koristenje tokom proljeca ali i ljeta - nije pretjerano sladak niti puderast te ne gubi na svjezini, cak ni na visokim temperaturama. Zamisljam ga kao kristalnu vazu u kojoj se nalaze blijedo-ruzicaste ruze i bozuri koji nikada ne venu. Zauvijek su zenstveni i mladoliki. Tako barem ja dozivljavam ovaj miris koji dosta osoba povezuje sa Chloe EDP a dizajn je takodjer divan i njezno ruzicast. Obrascice odrzavam rumenim uz pomoc Manhattan Powder Rouge rumenila u nijansi Secret Lovers. Tako je veselo, svjeze rumenilo koje cini ten zdravim - ovo breskvasto/ruzicasto rumenilo  je utjelovljenje suptilno zarumenjenih obraza i naprosto ga se ne mogu zasititi. Oci sam svaki dan uljepsavala Bourjouis Cream To Powder sjenom za oci u nijansi Petale de Glace - ovo je krasna blijedo lila nijansa koja predstavlja tako savrsenu varijaciju sminke za svaki dan. Nacin na koji svjetluca pod suncevom svjetlosti cini da oci djeluju magicno i romanticno (citiram kolegice i prijateljice), A takodjer me impresioniralo kako se ova sjena dobro drzi i tokom najtoplijih dana. Dok je sve sa ove liste relativno novo otkrice, ono sto sam nosila na usnama je pak stara ljubav. MAC Pure Zen ruz za usne (Cremesheen + Pearl) je najljepsi blijedo ruzicasti ruz koji posjedujem! Tako kremast i ugodan za nositi, transformise svake usne u mekane latice. Nesto je jako prijatno u pomisli na ruzicasto/nude ruz koji savrseno mozemo nanijeti i bez ogledala (on je jedan od tih ruzeva!). Da li ste mozda isprobale nesto sa moje liste ruzicastih favorita?
