Happy anniversary, Ličila.si!

img_6197img_6226img_6189img_6213In August Ličila.si celebrated their 7th anniversary and surprised Slovenian bloggers with amazing packages on the occasion! If you don’t already know, Ličila.si is one of the most successful Slovenian online stores, and with a good reason. They are retailing nothing but cruelty-free cosmetics and beauty products that are available both to those who do not wish to spend tons of money on cosmetics as well as those who like to treat themselves with good quality vegan makeup. I’ve ordered products on their website on several occasions in the past 7 years and it truly is a delight to see a website with such an amazing work ethic grow so quickly!

The most exciting item is certainly the Makeup Revolution London PRO HD LUXE eyeshadow palette. There are 35 different shades to choose from ranging from beigy mattes to dark and earth-toned shimmers. Those light shimmery shades on top can be used as a highlighter, too, which makes this palette highly versatile. You can create a neutral daily look or go for hot smokey eyes for a night out, all just in one product! As always, all shades are very pigmented and easy to blend. I already have several Makeup Revolution palettes in my makeup stash and they have never ever disappointed me, so this will be a great addition to my collection.  The second little gem is the Iconic Matte Nude Revolution Lipstick in shade Wishful. Although I’m not a huge fan of neutral lips (at least on me), I’m slowly getting into it season by season. This slightly rosy nude is very creamy and has a matte finish, surely I can make good use out of it in the next few months! And the last item is the I Heart Makeup Unicorns Heart A Rainbow Highlighter (made by unicorns), how intriguing is that name?! This is basically an insanely intensive highlighter with a rainbow of colors, literally. In my opinion, this would work out if there were only several shades. The blue and the green are just too intense when I apply it on my cheekbones. However, the yellow and orange tones are great so I usually just swirl the brush on that side of the heart and it works just fine.

Thank you Ličila.si for the gift and I wish you many successful years in the future! You can also benefit from a free-shipping code MURFSH in Slovenia, a great opportunity worth taking!

New releases by L.O.V., Catrice & Essence

In July I received four products that were part of new releases by L.O.V., Catrice and Essence. I’ve never tried L.O.V. products prior to this and my mind was blown when I tried their nude FATALmuse liquid matt lipstick in shade Secret Obsession. Its texture has such a luxurious feeling on the lips, very creamy with a matt effect. What I also love is that after a few hours the lipstick gradually wears off, but doesn’t leave any weird stains. This a great characteristic as other matt lipsticks dry up and crumble off your lips every time even after a tiny a sip of water. I also got a green EYEtracction magnetic loose eye shadow in shade Magnetize Me, such a funny product to use! The bottom of the jar must have some sort of magnet attached that attracts the loose eye shadow and when you use it, all the particles jump straight back to their place to form these lines. I applied it with a wet brush, but I wasn’t too amazed at how it turned out. I have hooded eyes and it’s hard to apply a bright eye shadow in such a way that would actually look great, haha! And it’s not as visible on the photos as I wanted it to be – I probably should’ve blended it a bit more, such a shame!

I also got the CUBANITA baking & banana powder by Essence that is great for baking those parts of the skin that you wish would stay put longer. I applied it under my eyes and on my T-zone area over my foundation and concealer. Let me tell you, I am impressed with the result! It literally melts with other products to create a porcelain-like finish and covers my pores perfectly. The under-eye area looks fabulous even after a whole day! However, I have to be careful with applying it around the nose as it looks slightly cakey, everyone wants to avoid that! The undertone is quite yellow which suits me perfectly, but be careful if your skin tone is on the fair side.

And finally, I got my hands at a bronzer that suits me perfectly! The Sun Stripping Bronzer is part of the Soleil d’Été collection by Catrice and has everything that I want in a bronzer: opacity, a completely matt finish and a deep bronzy shade. It perfectly matches my complexion and it seems perfect to use in the winter, too.

So, have you tried any of these or other products from the collections? Soleil d’Été is an extraordinary line, all makeup enthusiasts are impressed with these items, especially with the highlighter – too bad I have so many to use up already! Take care 

White Moon Malas

img_4862img_4854img_4888img_4883img_4864As a dedicated yogini, one of my favorite hobbies at yoga classes and on Instagram is watching yoga fashion on my fellow yoga lovers. One thing that has been missing from my perfect yoga outfit was a mala, a beautiful piece of jewellery that is usually used for meditation – but makes a perfect addition to your look. My boyfriend’s cousin Špela has her own mala brand, White Moon Malas, and I was beyond excited when his mother got me a mala bracelet for my birthday. My mala has beautiful neutral shades and is made of rosewood, rose quartz and picasso jasper beads. I’ve been wearing it every single day to work, it goes amazing with any style even outside the yoga class!

Her designs are without a fault – everything is thought out to the last detail. Every mala comes in a cute box with a ribbon and inside there are a mala with a protective pouch along with a personal message, some information about the semi-precious stones the piece of jewellery is made of and some general information on maintenance and history of malas. She also has her own Etsy shop that you can visit here, so if you have a friend or family member who enjoys doing yoga and you want to get them something beautiful and personal, take a look at her malas and you may find something that will be perfect just for them!
