This Week's Darlings #16


I'd love to tell you a story about something exciting and stylish but, unfortunately, my past week has been anything but! If we were about to talk about true weekly favorites, you'd get tons of tissues, cough syrup by the galons, honey, toasted milk and sugar = caramel drinks, hours and hours of sleep and an unbearable amount of housework waiting for me to be done with already. The perils of a cold are seemingly endless and there is almost no time or space for beauty related things to be squeezed between sleep marathons and a runny nose. However, meteorological work duties have kept me on my toes and I had to make myself somewhat presentable. Basically, this post will be consisted of a pared down beauty routine and lots of moments when I ask you to give me a virtual hug. I've put some dirty laundry to be washed, tucked myself and my also sick hubby into bed so we can kick off This Week's Darlings #16 with a face cream that literally saved me from cracking along the seams. Dr.Hauschka Revitalizing Cream is something remarkable from my skincare stash – an intensive nourishing cream which doesn't clog pores. Genius! Having a liquid-y, face milk-esque texture it sinks into the skin and immediately smooths its surface. It just feels damn nice and comfortable, plus – make-up sits perfectly over it. While we're at make-up, I almost ended up wearing none but I have kept a saying back in my mind that if you think you're looking better without make-up than with it on – it's time to get better make-up! Thanks heavens that I finally found more than dignified replacement of my HG foundation I used for years (YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat). I even think that the new one is even better. Dior Diorskin Star Foundation is a huge beauty shopping success because it provides everything I would imagine a perfect foundation would. It's dewy but also velvety in finish, it feels light but provides medium coverage, its longevity gets top marks and most importantly – I got a perfect shade match! I'll review it as soon as i feel better so I can demonstrate what a difference it makes for a face. My lips are notoriously chapped but the cold made things even worse. That's why the Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm doesn't leave my side. It's the only thing that makes my lips stop cracking and I love that I don't need to renew it over and over again throughout the day – it stays put. My nails, oh my poor nails – I accidentaly catched the nail on my index finger on a zip of a jacket and it broke. I had to cut them all down to same length (I cannot stand nails to be of different length) and am trying to make them grow again. OPI Nail Envy Maintenance is a miracle-worker! I haven't forgotten mt promise to review it because this seriously is the best nail treatment for weak, flaky nails. Finally, we have the fabulous L'Occitane Aromachology Relaxing Massage Body Oil. The scent alone makes me ease into sleep and it feels so nice and luxurious on the skin too. Lavender and geranium smell amazing together and this oil has a strong herbal scent – perfect for when you're feeling under the weather, like I do. Finally, this week came to a better end when my mailman delivered a long-awaited BeautyBay order – Urban Decay Naked Basics 2 Palette! I only need to wait for the original Naked and Naked Basics to arrive and we'll have lots of reviews and comparison posts on the way.

Voljela bih da vam mogu napisati neku interesantnu pricu ili sazetak ovosedmicnih desavanja no, nazalost, protekla sedmica je u mom slucaju bila sve osim interesantne. Ako bih vam istinski prenijela sta su za mene bili favoriti proteklih dana to bi bile mekane maramice za nosic pod prehladom, sirup za kasalj koji pijem vec u bocicama (mn.) – usput receno Mucoplant Good Night trputac otopina je jedina stvar koja mi je omogucila par sati neprekidnog sna. Potom sam zagrlila teglu meda od koje se ne odvajam a pijem zaprzeni secer na mlijeku sto je, iskreno receno, jedna od prijatnijih stvari koje sam konzumirala ovih dana. Medju favoritima se nece naci sati i sati provedeni u krevetu pod virozom – niti hrpa vesa koja ceka da bude oprana u masini za ves. Nije bas bilo mjesta niti vremena kada sam se ozbiljnije mogla pozabaviti beauty stvarima koje me vesele posto me prehlada zakovala za krevet. Ipak, duznosti radnog mjesta su me natjerale da se dovedem u prezentabilno stanje tako da cete u ovom postu citati o dosta pojednostavljenoj sedmicnoj beauty rutini a pripremite se i da od vas zatrazim barem virtuelni zagrljaj kako bih se osjecala malo bolje. Zapoceti cemo post Najdraze ove sedmice #16 sa kremom za lice koje me doslovno spasila od pucanja po savovima. Dr.Hauschka Revitalizirajuca krema je nesto izuzetno sto imam u kosarici sa preparativom. Ovo je krema koja intenzivno hrani kozu ali je ne gusi i nece zacepiti pore – genijalno! Posto joj je tekstura slicna mlijeku za lice i nije previse gusta, odmah se upija u kozu i zagladjuje joj povrsinu. Jednostavno je divno umasirati u lice i nositi jer je tako ugodna + sminka se savrseno nanosi preko nje. Kada smo vec kod make-upa, umalo sam ga u potpunosti izostavila ali sam se vodila izrekom da kada mislite kako bolje izgledate bez sminke – vrijeme je da nabavite bolju sminku! Imala sam veliku srecu da u kratkom roku pronadjem i vise nego dostojnu zamjenu za svoju HG tecnu podlogu (YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat). Cak se usudjujem reci da je novitet koji sam nabavila i premasio YSL podlogu koju toliko volim. Dior Diorskin Star tecna podloga je rezultat izuzetno uspjesnog beauty shoppinga jer mi pruza sve sto bih ikada pozeljela. Pruza licu sjaj ali je istovremeno i barsunasta na kozi, lagana je na licu a pruza srednje prekrivanje, trajnost je fantasticna a sto je mozda i najbolje od svega – pronasla sam identicnu nijansu svog tena! Uskoro cu je recenzirati – tacnije, cim se budem bolje osjecala i pokusati cu docarati koliki efekat ima na ten. Uz trenutno isusenu kozu lica, nadodati cu da su moje usne uvijek suhe ali prehlada je ucinila situaciju posebno losom. Iz tog razloga se Nuxe Reve de Miel balzam za usne ne odvaja od mene. Samo on uspijeva usporiti isusivanje usana i sprijeciti njihovo pucanje. Jako mi je bitno sto ne moram stalno mazati usne sa njim – kada ga nanesem, zadrzava se na njima barem par sati. Ni nokti nisu postedjeni, nastala je apsolutna havarija kada sam slucajno zakacila nokat kaziprsta za ivicu rajsferslusa kozne jakne. Nokat je pukao dosta nisko i morala sam sve nokte skratiti jer imam tik kada vidim nokte nejednake duzine. Nadam se da nisam jedini freak kojem to smeta. U svakom slucaju, ponovo sam pocela koristiti OPI Nail Envy Maintenance tretman koji je bez pretjerivanja – cudo! Nisam zaboravila na obecanu recenziju koju ovaj tretman za slabe, lomljive nokte itekako zasluzuje. I za kraj, imamo divno L'Occitane Aromachology Opustajuce ulje za masazu tijela. Sam miris ovog ulja mi pomaze da lakse utonem u san a na kozi ostavlja tako lijep i luksuzan trag. Lavanda i geranij su divna mjesavina i daju ovom ulju izuzetno biljni smek koji posebno prija i opusta – sto dobro dodje u trenucima kada se ne osjecate najbolje. Spomenuti cu kako sam napokon docekala da mi postar donese dugo iscekivanu posiljku sa BeautyBay stranice – Urban Decay Naked Basics 2 paleticu! Ostalo je jos samo da docekam dolazak originalne Nakedice ali i Naked Basics paletice i onda cete imati spremne kako recenzije ovih ljepotica, tako i njhova poredjenja.
