Beauty Buys Of The Month #2

Friday, February 20, 2015

Hello ladies, 
notice anything different? 
I FINALLY bought a new template and I'm so happy with it. I'm still working on the 'about me' page, but other than that I think everything is in its place. What do you think about it?


Sticking with the buying theme, it's time for another Beauty Buys Of The Month.
I haven't tried the majority of these items yet, but I'm sure I'll talk about them sooner or later.

Mateja raved about the L'oreal Elseve Extraordinary Oil Nourishing shampoo and when she recommends something from the drugstore (or anything really) you know I have to get it. (edit) Well, turns out she raved about another L'oreal shampoo that's also in an orange bottle, stupid me for not writing the name down, but I'm still curious to see how I'll like this one.
I had a few coupons to use, so I decided to repurchase Afrodita Clean Phase Cream peeling cause I love it and I ran out of it. Another product that I ran out, was the Vichy Idealia eye cream so I used another coupon and got the L'oreal Revitalift Laser Renew Precision eye cream. This promises A LOT, so I'm really curious to see how it'll deliver.
Another blogger inspired purchase is the Balea Nuss BodyButter. As soon as Sara said it smelt like Monte pudding, I knew I had to have it in my life. The temptation to resist eating it, is real. 

One thing I can't resist are Essence trend editions. 
I got their Duo Blush in 01 Nothing but lovestoned from TE Like an unforgettable kiss. Although the packaging is extremely cute, the blush itself is unfortunately very poorly pigmented and difficult to build up. I do quite like the highlight side, as it's completely matte.
If you're interested, Taya did a whole review on the blushes from this TE. 
The next three items are from their TE I ♥ Nude collection that is actually becoming a part of their regular offer. The eyeshadows are really great; pigmented, soft, easy to blend. I got the shades 05 My favourite tauping and 03 Crème Brulee that doesn't look great just as an eyeshadow, but also as a cheek highlight.
The lipstick is not as great. I got the shade 03  Come naturally, thinking it would look like a brownish, nude shade, but it looks too grey/purple-ish on me. It also smells like crayons which I also don't like. 
I don't know, maybe I just need to play around with it a little bit more.

Petra was the reason I bought the Avon Ultra Color Indulgence lipstick in Honey Flower. On her it looked like the perfect every day shade, but on me it looks a lot more vibrant and peachy. I'm sure I'll get more wear out of it in the Summer, but the formula itself is really good and I'll probably end up buying one or two other shades.
I also got their Foot Works Beautiful glycerine and cocoa butter deep moisture cream with massager. 

Last but not least, an order from Ličila.si .
I've been eyeing up new Makeup Revolution eyeshadow palettes and I decided to get their Salvation palette in Iconic Pro 1 (a dupe for Lorac Pro) and the ULTRA Professional Eyeshadow palette in Flawless Matte. 
I also bought their Blushing Hearts triple baked blusher in Bursting With Love and Pro Eyeshadow Blending Brush PRO E103.
When I opened the package, I also got an amazing and unexpected surprise from them, a tester of Sleek Precious Metals highlighting palette. 
I will most definitely be doing reviews on these products, so stay tuned for that. 


And here are a few swatches.
Top L to R:
My Favourite Tauping, Crème Brulee, Come Naturally, Honey Flower.
Bottom L to R:
Each individual shade from Bursting With Love and Nothing but lovestoned.

Have you bought anything exciting this month?

    čudovito da ti je krema všeč, je pa Essence 03 šminka res čisto drugačna na vsakem. Poskusi jo še preko lip linerja :)

      Ja, morem jo še preko lip linerja probat, pa mogoče še zmešano s kakšnim glosom ali drugo šminko :D

  2. Jeej si kupila Avon šminko:). No verjetno na meni izgleda bolj "naravno", ker imem tako žive lase:). Vse licila.si stvari me zanimajo. Komaj čakam ocene. Sleek osvetljevalci še posebej in Inocin Pro paleta. Še do pred kratkim nisem vedela, da je Lorac Pro dupe, zdaj si jo pa jaz tudi želim:). Mogoče sicer dvojko bolj.

  6. Super nov design bloga, meni so te minimalistične teme zelo všeč :) Pa nobenih presvetlih pisav, I appreciate that :D

    Nimam ravno tega šampona, ampak tale je tudi na spisku za sprobat :) Tega, ki ga imam jaz ga v našem Müllerju trenutno sploh ni na zalogi že kar nekaj časa. Pa Balejin body butter bom sprobala ko porabim enega mojega do konca.

    1. Odtenki so res krasni, pa na prvi vtis tudi same formula senčk deluje super :)

  8. Res lep izgled bloga <3
    Sem preveč požrešna če rečem, da me prav vse mika? :D No, ampak predvsem me zanima kako se obnese tale Lorealova za predel okoli oči :) Pa paletke seveda! :)

    1. Hvala <3
      Ma ne, itak da nisi :P
      Priznam, da mene tudi najbolj zanima za tole kremo, ker obljublja zelo veliko :D

  9. Prečudovit izgled bloga, prav WAU. <3 Pa tvoja slika na desni strani mi je tak luštna. :)
    Jaz pa sem pozabila porabit te kupončke za -50% na določene znamke za nego kože (Afrodita, L'oreal,..), prav ne morem verjet (čeprav trenutno ničesar nujno ne rabim). :S
    Maslo Balea mene tudi mika, ampak moram - tak kot Mateja - prej porabit eno svojo. :)
    Nujno moram kupit še Essence senčko My favourite tauping, ker je čist moj okus, ampak je ponavadi vse razgrabljeno v našem Mullerju.
    Oh, pa naročilo iz Ličila.si. <3 Mam od tega samo čopič in mi je kar fajn za zabrisovanje. :) Obvezno poročaj, kako bodo Sleek osvetljevalci in obe MR paletki. Sploh Iconic Pro me ZELO mika. :P

    1. O, hvala Sandra :)
      Jaz tudi nisem nič nujno rabila, ampak me ti kupončki vedno premamijo :D
      Glede stvari iz Ličila, bom pa definitivno poročala :D
