Judging by the weather, spring is right around the corner. Being a summer baby, I’m very excited about that, how ’bout you? Anyway, new season means new trends, new lines of products and new temptations at the drugstore. Among the first to roll the products out is once again Catrice that really stepped up their game in the past few years in regard to how they follow the trends and how they plan new lines. You can head over to Parokeets blog to see some more products from the new line, but today, I want to talk about three specific ones – a palette, a blush and a mascara.

Sonček, ki je danes posijal tudi v našo kotlino, napoveduje skorajšnji prihod pomladi. Sem otrok poletja in ljubim toplo vreme, zato me to zelo veseli, prav tako pa me veselijo tudi novosti v naših drogerijah. Med prvimi novo linijo napoveduje Catrice, ki zadnje čase res izredno dobro sledi lepotnim trendom, kar se odraža tudi na njihovih linijah izdelkov. Na Parokeets blogu si lahko ogledaš še več novih izdelkov, sama pa bom danes spregovorila o treh – paletki senčil, rdečilu in maskari.

Catrice introduced four new eyeshadow palettes (Nude, Copper, Matt and Blossom) but since I own more than enough neutral and matte palettes, I decided to go for the Blossom palette that reminds me of Urban Decay Naked 3 – smaller and ten times less expensive, that is. I can certainly say that the price-quality ratio goes in favor of the Catrice Palette. You get seven basic shades and additional shades for highlighting (inner corner or under the brow) and contouring (for instance for the outer V). All basic shades are derived from the pink category and range from light pink to dark purple color.

Pri Catrice so sicer predstavili štiri nove palete senčil (Nude, Copper, Matt in Blossom), ker pa imam nevtralnih in mat paletk že kar nekaj, sem se odločila za Blossom paletko, ki na hitro kar močno spominja na Urban Decay Naked 3 – seveda v pomanjšani različici in z desetkrat nižjo ceno. Vendar pa lahko vsekakor rečem, da premosorazmerje med kakovostjo in ceno v tem primeru ne velja. V paleti je 7 osnovnih odtenkov ter dodatni senčili za osvetljevanje (na primer v kotičku očesa in pod obrvjo) ter konturo (recimo v zunanjem V). Vsi osnovni odtenki izhajajo iz rožnate družine in se prelivajo od svetlo roza do temno vijolične barve.

It’s the same story every month – I don’t really feel like I’m shopping at all, but at the end of the month when I try to take a photo of all new products, I fail miserably. So yes, there are a few missing in the photo above.

Let’s start with some bigger things. I’m going to start using this Biobaza 3-1 cleanser this week since I just ran out of my previous one from L’Oreal yesterday. I got sent the Avon Sun Light spray – perfect timing as my vacation is quickly approaching. I bought the Verde Vera hand cream in Spar because I like the packaging and I also like having a cream in a jar for the kitchen. View Full Post

It’s that time of the month again – time to look back at the products I bought in June (*click* for the original post) and have been trying out for the past couple of weeks. I haven’t had a chance to use all of them, but if I have an opinion, you’ll find it below. As always, it’s a long one – but by now you probably don’t even need that warning, right? 🙂

I really like the Aussie Festival Fresh Dry Shampoo – you can read my review and comparison with Batiste dry shampoo *here*. I also tried and loved the Avon Senses Joyful tropics shower gel – the scent (papaya and peach) is a bit sweeter than I normally like, but this one somehow agreed with me. I’m still waiting to try the Artdeco Senses Asian Spa shower gel, as well as both Afrodita goodies. I did however give a go to the Biobaza deodorant and so far, I’m not too impressed. These sunny, hot and humid days are a real make-or-break test for any deodorant though, so I’ll hold off on the final verdict.

The Avon Naturals Face Mist has been a staple in my bag for the past few weeks. I like that it has almost no effect on my face makeup (not that I’m wearing that much in this heat). I also had a good go with the Avon Sun Face Cream – it didn’t break me out and it provided a good base for my foundation, so I’m liking it a lot. I’m yet to try the Artdeco face spray and the Bourjois face scrub (typical beauty blogger 1st world problems: so many product, only one face!). I have been trying sheets masks out like crazy, though, and I really see the appeal. I will say that the Balea Aqua Mask is a good one and worth the 1€ it will set you back – if nothing else, you get to try the concept, which is a bit gimmicky, but very appealing to me personally. For an in-depth review, you’ll have to wait until the following Sunday when I’ll be doing a special post about sheet masks in general. View Full Post
