This week's TOP 3 #1

I decided to add new series to my blog - This week's top 3! This is going to be like a short version of favorites. I don't post favorites very often because I usually use the same products so I don't consider them interesting enough to write about them every month but every now and then I do find some products that I really love and this is the way to talk about them a bit. I will post my top 3 occasionally, whenever I find few products that amaze me or some new products I start to use on daily basis. Also I think this is a good way to mention some products one more time or give short review on some products I didn't write about. Hope you will enjoy these posts. 
This week I have a blush, lipstick and a lip balm.

Elf Glow is the blush that I have for long time and it is usually left a side, but every time I use it I remember how much I love it. I started using it again at Monday and I've been using it every single day since. It looks natural and very spring appropriate. I love, love, love it...this time I will probably use it for a longer period of time. To read more about Elf Glow click here.

MUA lipstick Shade 4 was among my favorite products for a while. When I first got it I was using it all the time, I just love the fact it is so subtle and that "my lips but better" effect. Few days ago I was going trough my stash and now I use it all the time once again. You can see the swatch if you click here.

Lush Honey Trap is one of my new products and I fell in love with it the when I first tried it. Beautiful smell, moisturizing, not greasy and takes care of my lips. This little pot contains 8 g of product and I believe it will last for a long time!

What do you think about this new series?

New in - March 2014

New In is back. Let's look at the products I bought in March. 
First product you see is Atrix Soft hand cream. That was an emergency buy and I'm very happy with it. I keep this cream in my bag and I use it when I'm on the go. Next product is Balea body lotion, of course this one smells amazing ( grapes and pistachios ). I also bought two Aveo shower gels, both smell great. Aveo products are usually very cheap and I got these two on sale so it was a bargain. I got Elmex tooth paste as well, this is my absolute favorite and the tooth paste I've been using for years. Last two products in first group are Essence brushes.

Next group contains 3 Essence products I got on the sale. Essence Stay With Me lip gloss My Favorite Milkshake, Essence Twins Reloaded - Edward and Essence Glitter On Me.

China Glaze Teal The Tide Turns is the only nail polish I got from their gorgeous LE Sea Goddess ( for now, I hope so ). Finally I bought Catrice All Matt Nude Beige and I can't wait to try it! Last one in this group is Dove Beauty Finish.

Now here is the rest of nail polishes I bought in March. You could already see these on my blog. They are Catrice Glitterama and SandhopperEssence Heart Explosion and Glitz & Glam and Essence Hello Rosy.

Last two photos contain more shower gels and one body lotion - Aveo Chocolate Popcake. I went little bit crazy with shower gels but I guess this is the buy I can always justify. 

What did you buy in March? Do you have any of these products?

Lush Neon Love

Neon Love is Lush soap from their Valentine's Day limited edition. When I first got it I never thought I would love it so much. Passion fruit and soya yogurt are amazing combination, they are moisturizing and they smell so, so good! After I take a shower my body and my bathroom are filled with this scent...and what is even better it doesn't go away so you can smell it next day too. I tried few Lush body soaps and this is my favorite. Non of them dry out your skin like most soaps but this one is the best I tried so far. After you use Neon Love you don't get that "dry out" feeling and you don't need to reach for body lotion.

What is great about Neon Love and most solid soaps is that you can have them for a long time. They last for a while so you don't need to pile up for backup :)

Do you like Lush products? Which one is your favorite?

Essence Heart Explosion and Glitz & Glam

Today I have two new Essence nail polishes. They are from new Essence range and they are two new effects: sparkling sugar and glitter jewels. Both look very pretty and beside these two there are few other colors that I like so some of the will probably end up in my collection as well :)

Here they are Heart Explosion and Glitz & Glam side by side.

Heart Explosion is beautiful glittery red with "sugar" effect which is something in between glitter and sand finish. The color is very pretty, the best thing is that is great for any time of year because it is classic color with a twist which makes it interesting.

Glitz & Glam is nail polish you can wear alone or as a top coat over any other color. The color of hex glitter is pink and it is mixed with green micro glitter. When you wear it alone it looks delicate but it is something people will notice and if you want to combine it with other colors you can do whatever comes to your mind. Here is how it looks over dark purple, purple and orange. For now I prefer it alone :)

Did you tried new Essence nail polishes?

Winter 2014 favorites

Avon Care hand cream - this hand cream is not only in cutest packing ever it is also one of my favorite hand creams ever. Few years ago I was using it all the time and for some reason I stopped. Now I'm sure I'm gonna go back to it because it is really great. This winter my hands were dry like never before and when I started using this cream I saw the difference and my skin very quickly went back to normal shape.

Lush Lemony Flatter - cuticle butter that can be used for dry skin anywhere on your body. I even use it for my dry ends and it works great.

Catrice Fresh Demand - I have this since the summer and I haven't use it very often until one day few moths ago. I fell in love with it and started using it every single day! 

Essence Stay Natural 02 Soft Sand - I usually use concealer under my eyes and this one is really good for that! I only wish for bigger packing.

Avon Super Shock gel eyeliner - I wanted to try this for such a long time and now I think I should order another one just because I don't want to be without it anymore. Great product!

Essence Hello Rosy

Today I have one new Essence nail polish to show you. Hello Rosy is beautiful medium pink with sand sparkle effect. This one can easily go as one of my favorite nail polishes lately. Gorgeous shade and effect. With this color of pink and little bit of bigger red glitter it is really like you looking at colorful sand on your nails. I have it on my nails for few days and I'm still not board with it :) I can't wait for full Essence display to hit the stores because products that are already here are really good so I want to see the rest :D

First photo in this post is taken in the sun and here are two more taken in the shade!

Did you get anything from new Essence range?

Essence Bloom Me Up kabuki and small eyeshadow brush

It seems everyone has and eye on Essence Bloom Me Up tools! It is no wonder because even when you just look at them you can see that they are worth having. That is if you manage to see them somewhere because they are sold out immediately. I tried to stalk my local Muller but still I only got two brushes: kabuki and small eyeshadow brush but I still hope my Dm will also have them. I also hope that Essence will add something like Bloom Me Up tools in their regular range because I'm sure everyone would be happy with that. Now let's look at brushes little bit closer.

All the brushes in this collection look so pretty, purple kabuki with purple white hair is beautiful. It is soft and dense. It is great for application of loose powder as well as blush. I will probably use it for blush because I can't never get enough of blush brushes and this one works really good. Lately I prefer smaller blush brushes but I had no problem applying it with this gorgeous brush.

Small eyeshadow brush is orange with orange and white hair. I don't have anything like this in my collection so I know I will use it all the time. Most of the time I use it for inner corner of my eye and for my crease. It is perfect for that because it is easy to place eyeshadow exactly where you want it. Of course you can use it as a regular eyeshadow brush too. I would definitely buy another one just if I could find it somewhere.

Do you like Essence Bloom Me Up tools? Did you get your brushes?

Empty #13

Loreal Elvital Color Glanz conditioner - another empty bottle of my usual conditioner.

Loreal Elvital Total Repair Extreme - I tried this one for the first time. I love Loreal shampoos because they do what they say if I use them regularly but with this one I can't really say does it work because I don't know if I used it for 2 or 3 times in a row. However, it is a good product.

Essence Ice Ice Baby hand balm - At the beginning of the year my hand skin was extremely dry - like never before...this baby helped a lot to get it in normal shape. I used this one and Avon Care hand cream and things got way better.

Avon Naturals Red Rose & Peach body whip - my cousin gave me this one because she hated the smell and the texture of this thing. I love both the smell and the texture - at least at the beginning. I still like the smell ( I got entire face line only because of that :D ) but the texture became annoying with time. It is just like whip cream and it was so cool when I started using it but later I wished it was a regular lotion. Regardless it is a very good product, it absorbs really quickly and makes my skin soft..and smells really, really nice!

p2 Perfect Face make up base Illuminate Me! - I love this product but unfortunately they don't sell p2 in Croatia. If I have a chance I will definitely buy it again!

Essence I Love Extreme mascara - This is extremely popular Essence mascara and it deserves all the attention it has. It makes even my lashes long and curved which is for most mascaras mission impossible. I usually don't go back to any mascara because there is always something new I want to try but I believe I will repurchase this one.

Essence Stay Natural concealer 02 Soft Sand - This conealer comes in really small packing of only 1,5 ml but I still love it and I already have new one.

Balea fce wipes - like so many times before again in my Empty post :)

Between two photos in this post I moved so I have few more empty products from my old house. Please ignore Catrice liquid foundation because this one repeats from Empty #12.

Aveo liquid soap - I like Aveo products but I don't like most of their scents, when I find the one that I like I usually repurchase it few times. This one smells great.

Balea Cream shower gel Mango butter and pineapple - beautiful scent and nice creamy texture! Shame it is a limited edition!

Balea deospray - another limited edition product in pretty package, surprisingly I loved the quality too. Few years ago I tried Balea deospray and I didn't like it at all so this one was like a little test to see if something is changed. Since I like it very much I will probably buy more Balea deos in future.

Essence nail polish remover - another bottle is gone :)

Loreal mini conditioner - I always have these mini conditioners around and I love them.

That's it for now! Did you tried any of these products? What is in your empties?

Essence Here's My Number

New Essence range is slowly coming to the drugstores but today I have one polish from their current range. Here's My Number is sand effect nail polish. I'm in love with shiny sand polishes like this one since they came along so you know that I love this one too. The color is grey and there are also some holo glitter but when I apply it on my nails they are not visible. However, if you like dark and textured polishes this is the one to get because it is pretty and it doesn't look boring in your nails. I don't know how often will I reach for Here's Me Number because I usually wear bright colors in Spring but I'm glad that I have this baby around.
The bottle contains the usual 8 ml and it applies easily and dries quickly.

Do you like sand effect nail polishes? What do you think about Here's My Number?
