Makeup Revolution London

This long-awaited spring I’ve been loving …

img_9901img_0034img_0042img_9999img_9984Rejoice, warm weather is finally here! I mean, this winter was rough and the fact that I don’t need to wrap myself in a ton of clothes and a huge scarf is a huge success. I’m celebrating the beginning of the best part of the year with colorful, glowy looks and floral scents. Let’s take a look!

As I adore lightweight creams and serums, the Vichy Normaderm Anti Age is a perfect choice for my skin at the moment. Vitamin C, salicylic and glycolic acid are efficient against the first signs of ageing, blemishes and tired complexion. This treatment is perfect as it sinks into the skin in a matter of seconds and works great as a simple prep before applying foundation. I’ve also been loving the Detox Eye Roller by First Aid Beauty, a wonderful serum that is massaged into the delicate under-eye area using a cooling roller ball. When I saw that caffeine is just one of its many wonderful ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid and peptides, I was sold! I cannot say that it reduces wrinkles, but I love the feeling it creates and a little massage here and there isn’t a bad thing, too. The third skincare item is the Herbio AHA Fruit Mask, a lovely face mask that’s been on my favorites list for months. There are times when I use it a lot and then slowly forget about it, but it truly is a very nice product. My skin is so plump and glowy after use and I love that it doesn’t dry my skin at all.

As for makeup, colorful eyes are my favorite pick most of the time. I cannot emphasize enough how much I adore the Makeup Revolution eye shadow palettes! They offer such a wide range of shades, plus they are insanely affordable for what you get. My two faves at the moment are the Shoph X and Flawless 4, eyeshadow palettes, I wrote extensively about them in my previous post (you can read more by clicking on each one of them). Although I love pairing bright shades with a neutral lip or just a little bit of my Clinique lip oil, I also love adding some depth to my lips. And not just for that, I found this amazing L.O.V. lip stick in shade Angelina’s belief in my makeup drawer and I’ve been obsessed with its texture ever since! It is somewhere between a brown and a red, but looks pretty neutral on my lips. I only need to do a small retouch after my lunch, otherwise stays put throughout most of my day. I love it!

Last but not least, my hectic schedule calls for some relaxing aromatherapy sessions whenever possible. As stated before, I love floral scents that remind me of spring, which is finally here! I cannot get my hands off of the L’Occitane’s miniature fragrances that I got in their Premium Advent Calendar last year (by the way, it was worth every penny and I’m sure it will be mine this year as well!). Néroli & Orchidée is so elegant and fresh, perfectly blending floral notes and fruity scents. And although there is a slight hint of lemon, Verveine is the one to go for if you’re really into citruses! Verbena, geranium and lemon tree make a perfect summer perfume. This one brings back so many memories of my teenage years as my mom, my sister and I used up several bottles years ago, I love it!

My hands have finally recovered after experiencing so much cold this year! No surprise that my fave hand cream at the moment also comes from L’Occitane. Since I love their Cherry Blossom fragrance, there was no doubt I would like their Cherry Blossom Hand Cream, too. Works like a charm and leaves a gorgeous scent that sticks around for a couple of minutes. And the product that’s been helping me sleep lately is the This Works Stress Check, a wonderful therapeutic roll on that I actually received for Christmas from one of my friends. It consists of pure Eucalyptus, Frankincense and Lavender essential oils that immediately calm me down. Just a few rolls on my wrists and I’m good to go straight into bed.

This is my recap of all the items I’ve been loving these past weeks. If we share a favorite or you have some other products on your list, please let us all know in the comments :)

Eye shadow palette that has it all

img_0237img_0283img_0263img_0253img_0335img_0355img_0300img_0329img_0394

Hi, lovelies! You have probably realized by now that colorful eye shadows are a huge trend right at the moment. And this is not surprising as so many new eye shadow palettes that have been released in the last 6 months have a whole range of colorful shades. Intense earth tones are all I need nowadays as well – various shades of red, orange and brown that perfectly complement a neutral outfit.

My eye shadow palette collection has expanded once more last week! Ličila.si sent me the amazing Soph X palette by Makeup Revolution created in a collaboration with a British blogger and Youtuber SophDoesNails. This is an eye shadow palette that has it all: 14 matte and 14 shimmery shades, a variety of neutrals and transition shades, but also light shimmers and some bold colors. And ever since I attended an event organised by Bottega Verde Slovenia on Friday, where the amazing and talented makeup artist Anja Kolnec showed us hot makeup trends with intense eye makeup, my wish is to try and recreate a similar look on myself soon! Anyhow, I love these shades, the nude and the shimmery ones have some fallout, but otherwise is similar to the other Makeup Revolution London palettes. Just beware that the blue shimmery shade in the middle isn’t what it looks like! It’s actually duochrome and turns into a brown/blue shade when applied to the skin (the rightmost shade on my hand).

However, this beauty was not the only thing I received! The package also included a gorgeous rose gold highlighter from their Ingot Highlighter collection. There are three shades available, the other two are gold and platinum. Although the rose gold looks quite dark, it works pretty great as a highlighter on my complexion. But I also love that it can be used as a shimmery blush or an eye shadow. I watched a Youtube video about these three and they are sooo buildable, it makes me wanna buy the platinum one as well haha!

Nevertheless, this isn’t over yet! Ličila.si team has kindly given me a coupon code for a free shipping, so if you’re from Slovenia and want to do some shopping with a free shipping, you can use the code ‘ZENSKA‘. Thank you so much for such a lovely surprise, Ličila.si!

 

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!
