This Week's Darlings #11

I'm feeling that for this week's favorites I've dragged out all my beauty bits from the past – you have the CC cream, the oil, the blush, the make-up brush, the mascara and nail polishes. I know this isn't super exciting to watch or read but – oh well, at least you know I'm using all this stuff. I must say that I'm pretty much over the alphabet beauty regime and my conclusion is that I'm stopping at CC creams whilst noting how BB creams work the best for me. I absolutely adore the L'Occitane Beauty Balm and the Avon's Matte BB cream. Out of all CC creams (I haven't tried tons of them, couldn't bring myself to pay lots of money on the to be quite honest) – this LRP Rosaliac CC Cream suits me the best. It has decent coverage, skin benefits, calms down redness and has a nice SPF30. Ideal for summer and I mostly alternate it with L'Occitane and Avon BB creams. After summer is over, this alphabet mumbo-jumbo is over for me. I'll be more into looking for great foundations and I've already set my eyes on few, shhh… After finishing my Garnier 2in1 (bi-phase) eye make-up remover (the purple one), I turned to my trusty hazelnut oil. Oils are unrivaled in the area of taking off eye make-up. The under eye area looks so much nicer and more plump. Yay for oils! As for make-up, I'm obsessed with illuminating blushes. First, it was the MAC Springsheen, than NYX Foreplay and now I'm rotating towards a blush I loved last year. Revelique Duo Powder Blush in Peach. Oh my, this is a stunning blush – perfect ratio of color and fine shimmer. Looks lovely and acts as both highlighter (not too in your face) and uplifting blush. I've been applying it with the Real Techniques Duo-Fiber Face Brush. This one is ideal for very pigmented blushes or blushes that carry a lot of sheen. It mutes all the loud characteristics down and makes them daywear appropriate. Mascara of the summer, this one should be called – Bourjois 1 Seconde Volume. I wanted to purchase the waterproof version but there was no need because the regular version holds itself very well in the heat. It does provide volume, it lengthens and darkens my lashes. Doesn't clump, doesn't flake – a winner in my books. As I'm obsessed with nail polish, I had three in rotation this week. I've had China Glaze Peachy Keen on my toes for weeks – weeks, I tell you! I love this nail polish and I'll make some sort of nail art with it. On my hands, on the other hand (get it? *winkwink*), I've been switching from Essie Fiji to Essie Mint Candy Apple, non-stop. By the way, can you perhaps see how much of the Essie's Mint Candy Apple I've used up already? It;s almost down to the ‘i’ letter. It's insane but this is maybe my favorite and most used nail polish of all. Which shades have marked your summer in make-up and nail polishes? I'd love to know!

Imam osjecaj da sam ove sedmice izvukla iz kolekcije favorite koje sam cesto nosila, koristila (forsirala) prije nekog vremena – imate CC kremu, ulje, rumenilo, kist, maskaru i lakove za nokte. Znam da vjerovatno nije najuzbudljivija hrpica stvarcica koju ste vidjele (posebno jer sam ih spominjala i ranije) ali – barem znate da sve proizvode zaista volim i koristim. Moram priznati da je najvjerovatnije za mene sva prica oko alfabetskih kremica i sminke gotova nakon ovog ljeta. Zaustaviti cu se kod CC krema i zakljuciti da mi je posljednji val BB krema najvise odgovarao. Potpuno sam zaljubljena u L'Occitane Beauty Balm i Avon Mat BB kremu. Od svih CC krema (ruku na srce, nisam ih isprobala previse jer iskreno govoreci, nisam bila raspolozena da na njih trosim puno novca ) – LRP Rosaliac CC krema mi se pokazala najboljom. Pristojne je prekrivnosti, njeguje kozu kvalitetnim sastojcima, umiruje crvenilo i sadrzi solidan SPF30. Idealan je odabir za ljeto i vecinom rotiram nju sa L'Occitane i Avon BB kremama. Nakon sto ljeto prodje, zatvaram poglavlje ovih kremica i fokusirati cu se na pronalazak dobrih tecnih podloga. Vec sam ‘bacila oko’ na par njih, shhh… Nakon sto sam potrosila svoj ljubicasti Garnier 2u1 (dvofazni) skidac sminke sa ociju, u potpunosti sam se prebacila na koristenje ulja u tu svrhu. Ponajvise koristim voljeno Gameha ulje ljesnika. Jednostavno su mi ulja bez konkurencije kada je skidanje sminke u pitanju (narocito sa ociju) i vec vidim da je podrucje oko ociju nahranjeno i nekako mekse, zagladjenije. Saljem velike pohvale dragim uljima! Sto se tice kozmetike, opsjednuta sam iluminirajucim rumenilima. Prvo je to bilo MAC Springsheen, potom NYX Foreplay a sada sam u rutinu ubacila rumenilo koje me osvojilo prosle godine. Revelique Duo Powder rumenilo u nijansi Peach. To je tako lijepo rumenilo kojem se stalno vracam – savrsenog je omjera osvjetljujucih cestica i same boje. Nije previse upadnog sitnog shimmera a kao rumenilo naprosto unese malo zdrave boje koja nikome ne moze skoditi. Nanosila sam ga sa Real Techniques Duo-Fiber kistom za lice. Ovaj kist je idealan za rumenila koja su jako pigmentirana  ili za rumenila koja sadrze taj shimmer o kojem sam pisala. Jednostavno ublazi i pigment i shimmer te ih na kozi cini dosta nosivijim, prikladnijim za svaki dan (pa i radnu sredinu). Maskara ljeta – tako bih trebala nazvati slijedeci primjerak – Bourjois 1 Seconde Volume. Namjeravala sam kupiti i vodootpornu verziju ali na kraju nije bilo potrebe za tim posto je i standardna verzija odlicno drzala na vrelinama. Pruza volumen, produzuje, dosta je crna. Nije sklona grudvanju i ne upada mi u oci – apsolutno mi odgovara u svakom pogledu. Posto sam opsjednuta lakovima za nokte, ove sedmice sam imala tri u opticaju. China Glaze Peachy Keen mi sedmicama vec krasi nozne noktica i – traje sedmicama! Ovaj ljepotan mi je stvarno medju favoritima i morati cu napraviti neki lijep nail art sa njim. Na rucicama sam mijenjala dva laka – Essie Fiji i Essie Mint Candy Apple. Usput receno, da li mozete vidjeti koliko sam potrosila Mint Candy Apple-a? Skoro je spao do slova ‘i’ sto mi je nevjerovatno no ne treba ni mene da cudi jer ovo mi je mozda i najdrazi lak za nokte od svih. Koje boje su obiljezile vase ljeto sto se tice sminke i lakova za nokte? Bas bih voljela da znam!
