Beauty Buys Of The Month #3

Friday, March 20, 2015

Hello ladies, 
did you catch a glimpse of the solar eclipse today? I hope you had an amazing first official day of Spring. I'm really excited for it, bring it on warmer weather!

I know I said I'll be posting some of my favourite eye looks using the two MAKEUP REVOLUTION palettes, but I haven't gotten around of photographing all of them yet cause I've been really busy.
So instead, I'll be showing you the products I bought the past month.

I recently had a bad experience with FeelUnique as my order got lost and returned to them. Because of that I didn't want to re-order things and I decided to buy the things off Look Fantastic instead. 
Since I've been trying to grow out my hair from my current length for as long as I remember, and since I've heard quite a few good things about the Redken Extreme Anti-snap leave-in treatmant, I decided to finally get it. You know the product has to bee good when the 'hair queen' Mateja talks about it (here). 
I got my ends cut last week, so I obviously can't report much about it since I've only used it two times. But so far, I'm really liking the scent and the texture of it. I was reading up about it and I'm still not sure if I should use it every time I wash my hair or every other time. Do you have any suggestions?
I also finally have the Orofluido Beauty elixir back in my life, and I bought a set that came with their Mascara which has a mirror and a light. Now that's some serious business. I'll probably do a first impression on the mascara at some point in the future.

We also ran out of hair conditioner so I always like to ''stock up'' when I'm in Müller. I decided to try out some new ones, so I got the Dove Advanced Hair Series Pure Pflege Schwereloses öl and Aussie 3 minute miracle reconstructor.
I've used the Dove one once, and so far I like it. It made my hair feel soft, smooth and nourished.
I also bought the Rexona Maxium Protection anti-transpirant which is my favourite, and this time I got it in the Clean scent which is much better than the Confident one.  

I went a bit of lip balm crazy due to special offers and coupons. 
Labello Coconut lip butter was buy one get one free, and since I already used up the one that I was sent and since I really like it, I decided to repurchase it.
I also had a 50% off lip balms coupon so I decided to repurchase the Le Petit Olivier Lip balm stick with argan oil because it's one of the best, if not the best lip balm that I've tried. The full price is around 7€ (I think) and because I did used it up pretty quickly before, I wasn't really prepared to buy it full priced. But I'm extremely happy to have it back in my life for those dry lips crisis. 

Another product that I wasn't prepared to buy full priced is the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in Grand Cru. Luckily Tuš drogerija had 50% off them and I ran out to get it.
The formula of this one is straight up horrible, but the colour itself is definitely worth the long application process.
I also got some new Essence products. First up is their Make me brow eyebrow gel mascara which is supposedly a dupe of Benefit's Gimme brow.
I've used this quite a few times already and I like the product itself, but I'm not so sure about the shade. I got the lightest shade, 01 Blondy brows, and there are days when I like how it looks and days when I think it looks too light and not enough taupe-y for my liking. I'm thinking of getting the other shade available, just to see which one I would like better.
I also got one of their new Longlasting lipliners in the shade 05 Lovely Frappuccino. Nadja mentioned that this is a dupe for MAC Soar so I knew this will be my first choice. Turns out, it won't be my only one as I'm really liking it. It's super creamy, glides on like a dream, stays put and it's retractable. 
The last purchase was also influenced by Mateja and it's the Essence Waterproof Eyeliner pen. I don't wear eyeliners all that often, but I found myself wanting to wear a thin and slightly flicked line recently. I bought the Essence Liquid eyeliner quite some time ago, but I just don't like it and I can never get a nice, even, thin line with it. So I decided to get this one instead. I haven't tried it yet, but I'm sure it will be an ok product.

Here are the swatches.
Up top from L to R: Make me brow, Gran cru, Lovely frappuccino, Waterproof eyeliner pen.
Bottom left is Gran cru on my lips, but it's taken with my phone camera as my regular camera hates red shades and turns them into something bright and orange looking.
Bottom right is Lovely frappuccino which in looks a bit darker and mauve-y on me than it does on this photo, but not as dark as it looks on Nadja, for example.

Have you bought anything exciting recently, or have you tried any of these products?

  3. Hair queen - I am truly humbled by that tittle :D Anti Snap jaz kar po vsakem pranju uporabim, pa tudi ne šparam kaj dosti z njim (lase imam nekje do spodnje polovice hrbta). Upam, da ti bo ta Essence liner všeč. Ga še vedno uporabljam, ker me je Artdecov do zdaj zelo razočaral :/ Lovely frappuccino sem včeraj swatchala v Müllerju in je na moji koži precej temnejši, taka mešanica med temno rjavo in rdečo. Bi pa imela tistega Berry something :)

    1. Če si pa res no :D Okej, potem je kul če ga bom vsakič uporabljala :)
      Meni bo ziher všeč, ker jih itak redko uporabljam, tako da nisem preveč picky, dokler je črn in obstojen :)
      Ja, na tebi bi verjetno zgledal čisto drugače...Je pa meni ta Yummy Berry tudi ful všeč :)

  4. Kdaj sem pa odtenek Frappuccino spregledala :O Zgleda res lep in kremast <3
    Jaz se pa še odločam ali bi kupila Redken ali ne, pa sem ga že imela v košarici za nakup ampak je letel ven :D Hihi bom počakala še tvojo oceno, če je kaj pripomogel k presegu določene dolžine las ker imam isti problem kot ti - isto dolžino imam (se mi zdi) že več kot leto dni :)

    1. Sej ti so zdaj bolj na novo, mogoče zato :D
      Res upam, da bom lahko poročala o rasti...Sem tako naveličana s to dolžino, ampak ne bi je pa skrajšala :)

  5. Tudi jaz uporabljam Anti Snap od Redken skoraj po vsakem pranju. Me pa zanima kako se obnese Aussie 3 minute miracle reconstructor, ker sem brala precej nasprotujoče ocene.

    1. Super, hvala da si mi povedala :) Bom sporočila ko ga začnem uporabljat, upam da mi bo všeč :)

  6. Od Dove imam tudi jaz to linijo - šampon in balzam, sta mi res super oba! :) Za tale Make me brow od Essence me pa prav zanima tvoje mnenje - jaz uporabljam od Catrice Eyebrow gel in mi je 'holy grail', mogoče bi tudi tole od Essence bilo podobno. Koliko je pa odtenkov?

    1. Balzam res deluje obetajoče, mogoče še šampon sprobam :)
      Meni je všeč, tako kot sem napisala, samo odtenek se mi občasno zdi presvetel in ne dovolj pigmentiran, ker sem navajena temnejših obrvi. Ima pa res mini krtačko, kar je zame ''novo'' ker sem prej uporabljala enega od Alverde. Je pa boljša tale krtačka, ker je nanos bolj natančen in izgleda veliko bolj naravno. Odtenka sem pa jaz zasledila samo 2...

  7. Jaz sem edina, ki me ta Redken ni navdušil. Izdelek mam verjetno že predolgo, sem ga pa zdaj začela ponovno uporabljat. Uporabljam ga po vsakem pranju in ne vidim nekih razlik:) Essence linerji so odlični, jaz bi tudi še kakšnega kupila. Tvoj odtenek mi je tudi zelo všeč:). Tudi Essence Make Me Brown sem kupila v istem odtenku kot ti in meni je všeč. :)

  8. I also bought Bourjois Grand Cru but I haven't opened it yet. I am now getting scared of the formula :P

    1. I'll be honest, the formula probably couldn't be any worse, especially compared to other Velvet's. But a few coats, a lip liner and a bit of patience, and you'll be good :D
