Hey Beauties!

This month has been all about good products for dry skin, because this winter is getting the best out of my skin. I wish it would just be spring. I also love everything Asian, which I'll speak more about in this post and I joined Snapchat.



Herbio Shower Gel Cotton Seed

This is a greenish blue gel, which cleans your body and smells subtle and calming. I'll talk more about it in a separate review. I've been loving this, because skin on my body has been dry and many other shower gels just further irritate it. But this is very natural, nicely moisturizing and it doesn't irritate the skin. 


Pixi Glow Tonic Exfoliating Toner

This is great for in the morning and in the evening. I like to use it in the evening. It's a chemical exfoliant which is also moisturizing. I like the smooth effect that it gives to my skin and the fact that it also provides a bit of moisture. Great stuff and the amount is huge. 


Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Multi-purpose Dry Oil

I already have a review of this here. It's my skin savior in these winter months. I've been using this for a while almost every evening and it looks like I haven't even tested it properly. This amount lasts you for a really long time and it makes your skin very soft and smooth. It also nourishes it, so you always wake up with hydrated skin. 


Ebelin Konjak Sponge

So Ebelin made their own version of konjak sponge and it's so cheap. I've been testing it out a bit and I love this for one good reason. It's the best product for a nice facial massage and for spoiling yourself. It's super soft, but still gives some pressure to the skin and it feels like you're giving yourself a face massage. It also exfoliates the skin a little, so if you have dry skin, I wouldn't recommend you to use this every day. 


By Nanda BB Cushion Magic

My first cushion BB and I really like it, again because of the colder days. This is a very glowy and very dewy product and I need to powder it at the end or I look like a grease ball in the matter of an hour. But this is the best product for dry skin and for a quick makeup. I have a review of it here. I absolutely adore cushion system and want to try more of these. Do you have any recommendations?


Catrice Liquid Camouflage High Coverage Concealer 005 Light Natural

Catrice added a new lighter shade to their range and I had to get it. I've been using it for every makeup this month. It's lighter and a bit more yellow toned. This is perfectly moisturizing with a medium coverage. You can also build it up and I love the fact that it doesn't go into small lines. I also love the lighter shade, which I almost use to highlight with a bit. I have a review of two other shades here


The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer

My holy grail highlighter. I have a review here. I've been abusing this all through the whole month. It's a champagne gold highlighter with fine shimmer and it gives you the best glow ever. A really noticeable glow, which I love. I won't go into details, because I'm sure you're sick of me talking about it.


Zoeva Cocoa Blend Eyeshadow Palette

This is from now on my favorite eyeshadow palette. It has all the basic matte browns and a few neutral shimmers as well as some warm pops of color. The quality is amazing and the price will blow you away just as well. Definitely need to get some more palettes from Zoeva. I reviewed it here.


Diamond Beauty Eyeliner in 01 Forever Black

I've already wrote a review for this here and I can say that this is my favorite eyeliner so far. It's in a pen form, but has a brush tip and it's super precise. You can draw the thinnest lines possible or thicker. It dries fast and doesn't transfer. What more could I ask of eyeliner?!


Avon Dreams Eau de Parfum

The fragrance that I've been really enjoying using this month is the new one by Avon called Dreams. It's a very sophisticated romantic and subtly sweet fragrance. I'll do a whole review in a separate post. This is definitely for all you dreamy romantic souls. 

Snapchat

I've recently joined Snapchat. I didn't really get it at first, but then my good friend (who's name I shall not mention) said that this is the best way of stalking other people, haha. This has now become a rather interesting tool for posting spur of the day moments and even recording some of my makeup there. I can post a lot more non-beauty related photos there. So, if you'd like to see what I'm up to, you can follow me. My Snapchat name is adjustingbeauty

Asian Makeup on YouTube

I've been into Asian makeup this month. I got some Japanese brand makeup to test and I've been browsing through some Asian online stores. I've actually ordered one foundation which I still didn't get. Their makeup seems to be so innovative and effective and I am all over it. One YouTuber that sparked my interest in Korean makeup is PONY Makeup. I've watched all her videos. I also liked watching Meej Muse Korean-Australian YouTuber with some great product reviews of Korean makeup products. I love the subtle and sparkly eyes with eyeliner, perfect base and ombre lips. It's a totally different approach to makeup than our European-American makeup with heavy contouring and outlined lips. It's a lot more natural and softer looking. Pretty, I would say. The visual images have been stuck in my mind and I've even started doing ombre lips with lipsticks and lip glosses. Now I have a huge wish list of Asian makeup products, that I'm probably gonna be obsessing over the next few months. 

Btw do you have any Asian makeup YouTubers that you would recommend me to watch?

  1. Ja ja, tale s stalkanjem je dobra. Ampak je super, da kljub nasvetu nisi samo stalkerka. :P haha

    Sem kupila Ebelinovo konjac gobico ta teden, se danes vržem v testiranje. Nuxe olje pa obožujem za večerno nego, prav super rešuje suho kožo. :)

    1. Haha :D
      Meni se zdi zanimivo, da Balea zadnje čase kopira te zanimive izdelke. Kot npr olje za čiščenje. pa še vse je veliko bolj cenovno ugodno :). Jaz isto, vsak večer Nuye olje :D.

  2. Odlična zbirka. Sem pa se po branju tvojega posta odločila, da moram preizkusit ta Catrice Concealer. Nujno. xx

    1. Hvala :). Ja, ja priporočam. Ne bo ti žal, samo prav odtenek poišči zase ;)

  3. Nič čudnega, da ti azijski makeup in kozmetika blizu, če so ti všeč glowy/dewy looki :) Jaz sem zelo navdušena nad korejskimi izdelki za nego kože tudi zato, ker se dobijo stvari z inovativnimi sestavinami za veliko nižjo ceno kot 'na zahodu'. Drugače pa že nestrpno pričakujem Pixi Glow Tonic oceno :)

    1. Ja in dejstvo, da bi tam verjetno dobila celos vetel odtenek podlage, ne kot pri nas v trgovinah :D. To je res. Veliko bolj cenovno ugodne stvari, pa vseeno odlične. Jaz bom vsekakor kaj preizkušala od njih v prihodnje. Bo v kratkem..;).

  4. Za azijsko kozmetiko priporocam YT kanal WISHTrendTV in blog http://skinandtonics.com/

  5. Ebelin gobica je tudi meni zanimiva, je pa vsaj kar se moje kože tiče, ne uporabljam vsak dan, ker mi precej izsuši kožo, sploh v kombinacaji z NUXE-vim gelom za čiščenje obraza.Ampak ima lep fekt in zanimiva je. Pixi sem pa že tudi sama gledala, ker na instagramu skos gledam vse happy uporabnice in me prav zanima,moram pa malo pobrskat še kako je kaj sestavinsko.

    1. Meni tudi. Se mi zdi, da po eni strani deluje kot fizičen eksfoliant in ni najbolj primerna za vsakodnevno uporabo sploh za suho kožo. Jaz je tudi ne rabim vsak dan. Pixi je mene presenetil. Res nežen,s em pričakovala, da bo bolj agresiven. In všeč mi je kako gladka koža je po uporabi :).

  6. Ti je korektor od Catrice bolj všeč od Revlonovega Colorstay?

    Sem imela samo Konjac gobico in mi je bila zanimiva, ampak sem že čisto pozabila nanjo. Za zjutraj mi je bila ok. Lepo da je zdaj taka gobica enostavno dostopna tudi v DM-u. Zoeva paletka me zaradi tebe mika, čeprav mi je že Too Faced popolna :D

    1. Zdaj bom na pamet trdila, ker ju trenutno nimam zraven mene...jaz imam občutek, da je Catrice za odtenek bolj prekriven. Bolj kot ne me pa prepriča cena, ker je pač ceneje in je učinek dokaj podoben :).

      Ja, DM je zadnje čase zanimiv. To olje za čiščenje, Ebelin gobice...upam, da še več naredijo in seveda vse zelo cenovno dostopno :). No, če že imaš popolnost potem je ne rabiš, če pa želiš še kakšne odtenek pa vsekakor priporočam ;D.

    Joj, mislim da nobena ni napisala slabe objave.

    Tudi mene so izdelki navdušili, bom kmalu objavila še mojo oceno! :)

    1. Mislim, da res. Dobra naravna znamka in res imajo zanimive izdelke :). Shower gel je pa božanski. Sploh za nekaj kao naravnega, ker se kar lepo peni in še nevsiljivo diši, pa nič ne draži kože :).

  9. Joj, jaz še zdaj nisem kupila ta Catrice concealer pa ga imam v mislih že od kar ste prvič začele pisati o njem :) Morem it malo prečekirat odtenke :D

    1. Shame on you :P Ne se prestrašit, če ti oksidira na roki. Poišči samo odtenek, ki ti najbolj paše ko je svež iz tube. Meni na mojih rokah oksidira kot nor, pa saj vse podlage vedno oksidirajo, ko pa ga razmažeš v kožo pa je v redu ;).
