February favourites

So, last favourites did pretty well and I decided to continue this little series for as long as I have something new to show you. This months favourites are pretty much what I got for my birthday post, since most of the products I got like that. But, without any more rambling let’s start.

 

img_3870-1 Real Techniques Limited Edition Multitask Set 

One of the birthday gifts I got, and fell in love with immediately. This set comes with 3 amazing brushes and a case that can be used as a brush holder. I know it isn’t that cheap or affordable but you can use it for everything. I use the multitask cheek brush for my foundation and concealer, the multitask face brush for my compact powder and multitask eye brush for my everyday eye makeup look. What I love about them is that they come with instructions for what do you use which and also Sam & Nick, have tutorials for every set out there.  So helpful!

Maybelline Master Strobing Stick Highlighter in 100

My friend clearly know that I love makeup and they got me this amazing highlighter from Maybelline. I don’t use it everyday but I do use it weekly. I love the shimmer I get from it and how easy it is to apply it. Just dab it a few times above your cheekbone and blend it quickly, it’s that easy! The shine look very natural and pretty.

Lush Popcorn Lip Scrub 

The first contact with Lush Lip Scrubs I had, was with the Christmas edition one and I love it. So, when I used it up, I decided to get a new one and picked this one at their store. It works the same as the previous one but has a completely different taste. This one is the most unique one out of their lip scrub range because it is both  sweet and salty. The taste is definitely something you have to get use to, but I clearly love it since it is in my favourites. I use it every time I am wearing a lipstick, especially before darker matt ones.

Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipstick in 365

I think I already talked about my love for the colour burgundy, so it comes at no surprise that one of my favourite lipsticks ever is this one from Maybelline called Plum Passion.I love how it looks on, it moisturizes and lasts for a long time. Dark purple lipstick are usually what I go for especially in cold months. I wrote about my favourite dark purple lipstick in an old blog post where this one is featured, so if you are interested in that click here!

 

img_3882-1Catrice Multi Matt Brush in 010

I have been using this blush for about a year now. Switching from the first shade in 010 to the slightly darker 020 one, all year around as seasons pass by. I love it so much, but I have to say for colder months I like the this lighter version a bit better on my fair skin tone. It gives you a bit of colour with just one quick apply. The multiple colours give you various choices, I usually blend all of them together in circular motion with an angled brush and simply apply it on my cheeks. The plus is the affordable price and it being matt since my skin is oily after just a few hours. No touch ups needed.

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water 

I feel like I have been using this since it just came out in my country. I tried a lot more cleansers and micellar water from different brands and Garnier also but nothing really works as good as this one so I always get back to it. It is really great for sensitive skin and it doesn’t leave my skin red after cleaning my face as a lot of other do. It last about 3+ months, since I do use makeup almost every day. It is quit affordable especially comparing it with other drugstore products.

CV Makeup Wipes

I discovered these makeup wipes this summer and every time I have a chance on repurchasing them I do. Makeup wipes are so great for those lazy nights when you just do not one to deal with your everyday makeup cleansers. I like them a lot better than the Nivea ones that can often be really harsh on my skin and leave me red and even itchy. This brand is, I think, exclusive for Muller store, so if you have one near definitely go there and find yourself these wipes. There are more types and I use these which are for younger than 25. They have a great scent and leave my skin looking fresh and clean. Also the price is amazing, almost half price of the Nivea ones.

Shoebox Burgundy Boots 

Also the showcase of me loving burgundy. And the only velvet thing I have in my house, and the only exception to my do not wear velvet rule. Look at them, they are so cute and pretty. I got them in November while I was in Zagreb and they were on an insane sale, so I could justify the 10th pair of boots I would now own. I just started wearing them intensely and I have been getting a lot of compliments since they are kind of the first thing you see when I walk in a room (have in mind that I am usually only wearing all black 🙂 ). A great investment and contribute to my wardrobe.


That will be it for my February favourites. It was the shortest month and I still had something to show you, we will see if I will do the same for the following one. I like to see what are your favourite things from last month and maybe even take up on trying the things you mention! Thank you for you attention.

Mood board for February

page

I have been doing mood boards for over a year now, the concept is me giving some information about what I did that month that is connected with this photos (that I rebloged onto my Tumblr, if you want to check it out it’s girlonfire-youtube-lover).
The mood board of the month is going live on the last Monday of that month!

So first thing I have to say is that I am 18! My birthday was on 18th of February and you can read a bit about it in my previous post here.

I developed a habit to talk about my makeup look of the month in every mood board for the past few months, so I am going to tell you again. I got a new highlighter and have been loving it, so that with a shimmer pink eye-shadow and eyeliner is pretty much all I do. 

Lip colours I usually use are either dark purple/burgundy or like nude mac lipsticks. No in between really, especially in winter and fall. 

I miss having that urge to dance all the time that I have lost in my depression period, a few years ago. 

I love flowers and bouquets, roses mostly. And I got a few of them for my birthday 🙂 !

Since I have been seeing the fishnet trend everywhere lately, I also decided to get me some. I hope you will get an Outfit Inspiration post this spring with this trend.

Cereal has been more common in my diet this month, and that made me remember how much I actually miss eating cereal since I went through a phase of not eating it for a great while. 

I really want to do some portrait photography with a real camera and all. I hope that this particular wish will come true soon.

January Favorites

img_3532

Hello, new year, new feature here on my blog. This is my first favourites post and I hope you will like it enough for me to post a February one. I know I am a bit late, this usually goes up the first few days of the month, but last week and a half I was crazy busy!

Catrice Liquid Camouflage Concealer – This is a budget friendly concealer from a drugstore that is also so good that I am on my 4 tube I think. It is long-lasting since it’s waterproof and give such an amazing coverage. I had a lot of Borjuois concealers and this one is just as good, but a lot cheaper! I am in shade 02, and sadly this is the darkest shade and I am very fair so I can use both the 02 one and 01.

NYX Lid Lingerie – This is probably the best makeup item I have ever purchased. I love the formula of this, it goes on so smoothly and stays all day. Mixing with other shades is also very good, but on its own it also looks beautiful with the shimmer it has. I have it in the shade Rose Pearl and it is my go to eye makeup look, especially when I am running late. I just put it on, some mascara and done!

Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation– New foundation in 2017. Actually I am on the hunt for the perfect new foundation and this one was the first on my hunt! It is better than my old Bell one, but still not the perfect match for me. It gives great coverage, but you do not feel it on your face. For me it is not so long-lasting it should be and I even use a compact powder over it. If you do not like scents in your makeup stay free from this one, if you are okay with that than you should try it for yourself if you have normal/dry skin. For us with oily skin it isn’t what we are looking for, but still a good foundation.

Maybelline the Colossal Go Extreme! Mascara – Well, I got this mascara for Christmas as a present and have been using it ever since. It is my new favourite mascara, so similar to the Rocket Volume Mascara from Maybelline which I loved so much when it came out! It darkness my lashes and gives it great volume and lengths. Perfect!

Seventeen Clear Skin Tea Tree Oil Cream – I got this while I was in Greece, because I forgot to bring my cream with me on the travel. Just stumbled upon a small drugstore and saw the label and words clear skin and bought it. I used it there and forgot about it when I came home. So, how I started using it? Well, I got a case of post-holiday acne and used this just to try it again and I saw the results over just one night. After 3 days of using it once a day my acne cleared up completely. Amazing cream, it is a moisturizer and it balances your skin and it was pretty inexpensive if I remember correctly.

Maybelline Affinitone Foundation – Thanks to the cream my skin has become so amazing that I didn’t need a full coverage foundation on those easy days when I am not wearing makeup for most of the day. On those days I have been using this foundation from Maybelline and it feels so amazing on my skin, it stays for 5/6 hours without touching up or even putting on a compact powder. It is so light and it covers just enough.

Catrice Eyeliner Pen – I am impressed with the brand Catrice, so impressed that on the advise of my friend I got their eyeliner pen to try it out. And it is so amazing, easy to use and long-lasting, it stand all crying and cry-laughing I do. In January I did a lot of cat eyeliner and with this it is so easy to do it, I haven’t ever done a flick so easily.

Givenchy Electric Rose – This is a limited edition perfume that through years has become my signature perfume. The first time I finished the bottle I figured that I would have a hard way of finding another one, and that was true. Untill I found one in an airport tax-free fragrance store and I was thrilled.  It passed 4 months and I almost finished this one. I am not going to try to explain the fragrance, but you can read my review about it here!

Syoss Anti-Grease Dry Shampoo– This has been my saviour more than once, since my hair pretty much become greasy after one day. For me it is a better product than Batiste one’s but I don’t quit like the scent it has, but a little perfume in my hair after brushing this out fixes everything!

Deborah Lipstick – I have already talked about this product before. One of the things I mentioned is that it s pretty much the only shade of red I can possibly bear to wear on my lips. This is Deborah lipstick from their line of Red lipsticks, and it is in number 3. It has a nice shimmer that is barely visible and it looks amazing!

MAC lipstick – Also already raved about this one in my MAC Mini Collection. This is Sophisto and it also has a shimmer in it, but it is a rich burgundy colour which goes with most of my clothing. And have I mentioned I love burgundy a bit too much?


That would be all for January favourites! I hope you liked it and that you want to see February Favourites in half a month, be sure to comment your favourite products from beginning of this year as well.

What’s in my bag? / Bag essentials

img_3082

img_3079

So this is the lovely Nohaa bag I talked about in my last Outfit Inspiration post! I love it so much because it burgundy and it is very spacious, you can see from the photos all of the things that I can fit in it. This is the biggest handbag I own so I really use up all the space it offers. Today I am going to talk about my bag essentials through a What’s in my bag post! I will start from left to right describing the things on the photo.

Wallet, money and cards.
This Guess wallet has been my best friend for almost a year. I got it whilst I was in Venice and it has already been featured in so many posts. It is black and leather, a timeless combination. I know that if you carry a handbag you do not really need a big wallet inside but I like to do that nonetheless and this bag offers me the possibility to do that!

Mascara
You never know what can happen to ruin your makeup so I always like to put some makeup in my bag. This is my new favourite mascara from Maybelline. It is The Colossal Go Extreme! Leather Black mascara. I am not going to describe it any more since I plan to do a full review soon.

Lip balm
It is my favourite Baby Lips Electro in Berry Bomb from Maybelline. I like to keep this in my bag because my lips can get dry and I like to put it over any lipstick I already have on to make it a bit glossy and more durable.

Lipstick
You always need to reapply your lipstick so I also keep my favourite lips of the season in the bag aswell as m lip balm. Sometimes I just put the lipbalm over the lipstick to make my lips look better but sometimes I need to reapply the lipstick first. Girly problems 😀 Right now my favourite lipstick is Maybelline’s COLORsensational in 342 Mauve Mania. It’s a darker pink, perfect for everyday and occasion.

Mirror
For reapplying your makeup or just taking a look at what a mess you are, you are going to need a little pocket mirror. This was a souvenir from my aunt, she got it for me from Rovinj. I like the little design on it and the fact that it has a regular and magnifying mirror.

Compact powder
I have oily skin and after some time my face is so shiny that I don’t even know how people can look at me as I am shining like a Christmas bulb. That is the reason why I keep this compact powder from Catrice in my handbag. It is the All Matt shine control powder in 015 Natural Beige!

Hair ties and bobby pins
I like to have my hair up when I am at home because my hair irritates me often. So when I am going out I always throw some hair ties and bobby pins if I ever decide to pull my hair up if it just gets too much for me to handle.

Planner
This is the year I decided to be a little more organized and to keep my planner by my side at every time. This is the most famous Croatian planner that comes in a few different looks. It is called zenskirokovnik (translated to womensplanner) on instagram so you can check their page out!

Earphones
Music is an important part of my life and my earphones are a necessity. It helps me get somewhere faster and get through my anxiety attacks so I always keep them near. These are the original Iphone earphones from Apple in their packaging.

Pen
There are just somethings that you always need to keep with you so I always carry a pen, nonetheless if I have my planner or not. That way if you are in a coffee shop and want to do some crosswords you do not need to ask the cute waiter/waitress for a pen. This one was a Christmas present and it is a Gorjuss pen.

Gum
Also a necessity that I think you always need to carry with you. This pack is great because it is a mini Airwaves pack that is so cute and so perfect for a handbag, it has 4 gums instead of 8 which I think is enough.

So this is it for my bag essentials. I hope you enjoyed reading this and that you find at least a bit useful or amusing.

Mood board for December

page.jpg

 

I have been doing mood boards for over a year now, the concept is me giving some information about what I did that month that is connected with this photos (that I rebloged onto my Tumblr, if you want to check it out it’s girlonfire-youtube-lover).

Coffee, tea and soup in a mug are my favourite friends this winter!

I am one of those people who do not mind wearing a bra, I kind of like it even. I am not that person who cannot wait to get home to take the bra off. Is that weird?

Only thing I know for sure about my prom dress is that is going to be burgundy, and it might have a bare back but will see.

I love knee-high socks for winter. Simple but stylish.

I miss visiting galleries so much. There is just something so comforting for me when looking at paintings.

My go to makeup this months is, sparkly rose gold and brown eyes with a darker lip.

Keeping my hair in a messy ponytail at home has become a new ritual.

I got a lot of new stuff for Christmas, including three new beautiful bags.
