Hello ladies, 
can you believe we're already in September? I have to admit that I'm kinda liking the fact that Autumn is just around the corner, probably because the Summer here in Slovenia has been really crappy and that summery feeling never got over me in the first place.


As you can see, I don't have a lot of favourites this month, mainly because I've been using and loving almost all of the products I've mentioned in this post not so long ago. 
But I did find a few things that I haven't really talked about yet, but have been enjoying using this past month.





















Unfortunately, the majority of my face tan has already disappeared and I've been using the Kardashian Beauty Cabana Bronze (520) bronzer to match my face to the rest of my body. I haven't been wearing any foundation/BB creams for more than a month now, and even when I had a tan I liked to use a bit of this bronzer just to even out my skin and give it a bit more dimension. 
I'm not a big fan of the packaging, because the plastic looks really cheap, but I do really like the product itself. It has three different shades and I like to mix all three of them together. When I was more tanned, I used the darker shade the most, now I tend to gravitate toward the middle one more.
At first I was really afraid that it would look too orange or too shimmery (it does look like it has a ton of shimmer in it), but thanks to the Real Techniques Blush brush, those shimmers don't really transfer on your face. It still gives you that healthy, bronzy glow from within, but without looking like you're wearing a highlighter all over your face. I also noticed that everything looks much softer and more natural if I use this brush with this bronzer, and I haven't really been into contouring as much as I was before anyway. 
As I've said, I have mainly been using this bronzer all over my face, but occasionally I also used a blush just on the apples of my cheeks. I rediscovered the shade Russet from Avon. Although this is one of those shades I would normally only wear in Autumn, it goes perfectly with the Kardashian bronzer. They really do look stunning together, if I say so myself.

I ran out of the Balm Balm Light facial oil and decided to try the Alverde Wildrose gesichtsöl next. I've heard a few good things about it and I definitely have to agree. It's not as light as the Balm Balm one and doesn't absorb as fast, but my skin still seems to love it a lot. It also has a lovely, floral/citrus scent. Definitely worth trying out.
The next thing is from Catrice, and they really are on fire with their products at the moment. This Lash/Brow Designer shaping and conditioning mascara gel is no exception. I haven't tried it on my lashes yet, but it definitely keeps my brows in place all day long. The packaging is really thin & sleek, and I love the fact that it's not as wet as the one from Essence. 



























Swatches:
At the top (from left to right) we have the Avon blush, Kardashian Beauty bronzer- all three shades mixed together, then we have each shade on its own, from the lightest to the darkest.
At the bottom we have the brush of the Catrice mascara gel; you can see how it has two sides, one with shorter bristles for your brows, and the other, longer one for your lashes, and the pipette of Alverde facial oil.

What was your favourite product this past month?

  2. Mika me tale Alverde oljček, ker bi zadnje čase vse kar vsaj malo diši na citruse imela :) Pa tale kapalka je praktična, jaz zvečer zdaj navadno jojobino olje uporabljam in ima tako grozno veliko odprtino, da bi se kakšen luksuz s kapalko kar prilegel :)

    1. Mene je najprej skrbelo, da bo dišal preveč po vrtnici, pa na srečo ne :) Mislim, da bi ti znal bit všeč, drugače ga pa še vedno lahko uporabiš za obnohtno kožico,.. ali pa uporabljaš samo kapalko ;)

    1. I can't believe it either although with this constant rain, it didn't even feel like Summer much.
      It's really good, I'm so glad I picked it up :)

  4. Ko si rekla, da tale Catrice maskara ni tako mokra kot Essencova, me je takoj zamikala. Sem pa tudi sama zelo zadovoljna z RT blush brushem. :)

    1. Vidim, da nisem edina, ki mi Essencova ni bila všeč :) Sem videla, da si ga kupila, meni je res enkraten, ga uporabljam že več kot 2 leti, pa je še vedno v super stanju :)
