Dahliana Naturals Overnight Fruit Lift crème* (review)

Last year I tried several very good creams, but I will only mention the best one. Dahliana Naturals Overnight Fruit Lift is much more than a cream. It’s a moisturizer, but at the same time a peeling and a mask. Its uniqueness lies in the excellent ingredients. It is made of fine, almost entirely natural ingredients, and many of them are organic. By using this product, the skin becomes lighter, brighter and fresher in a short period time.

 

Foreo Luna*

Since cleansing devices are expensive, you should think wisely which one to choose. One of them is Foreo Luna device with which you can hardly go wrong. With the T-Sonic™ (transdermal Sonic) method, cleans the face. Also, it has an anti-aging function. This is an excellent product that reborn my skin in short period of time – the skin became very bright, fresh and smooth. In addition, once charged, the device will stay charged for months! The fact that you do not need to carry a charger, as well as that it is very lightweight, makes it ideal for travels.

 

NIVEA In-Shower*

Body conditioners are a true revolution in body care. They are time savers, because you don’t have to wait that skin absorbs them. Because of the easy application, you will no longer have an excuse to skip the final stage in body care in the morning. My fave one is Cocoa & Milk, because of the scent. This is a great product for daily use and, if you don’t have very dry skin, In-Shower will provide you adequate hydration.

CHANEL N°5* (review)

I am very picky when it comes to fragrances. I like many, but there are only a few that I wear. This classic is one of them. Its characteristics are: purity, femininity, sexiness, sophistication.

 

GUERLAIN Terracotta Moisturising Bronzing Powder

It took me so long to try this product, but I finally bought it and was delighted with my purchase. :x It is finely milled, perfectly blends with skin… In a word, it is – perfect. It also smells wonderfully and I would love to own the bottle of that fragrance. :) I bought it here+.

 

Dior Diorskin Nude Tan Transat Edition Golden Shimmer Powder (review)

It looks fabulous and it does wonders. The look of this product is sufficient for it to be found on this list, but it also provide beautiful glow to the skin. Dior always has amazing limited collection products, and so it was last summer.

The best of 2014: Chanel N°5, Guerlain Terracotta & Dior Diorskin Nude Tan Transat Edition Golden Shimmer Powder

 

 

L’OCCITANE en Provence Iris Angelica Sublime Beauty Cream*

Blends beautifully into my skin, giving it a natural effect, but at the same time embellishing it. The skin becomes smooth and well hydrated. The shade I got is 01 Light (it should be noted that it is darker than what would be expected by its name).

 

Maybelline New York SuperStay Better Skin foundation* (review)

I was pleasantly surprised with some of Maybelline products. One of them is Superstay Better Skin foundation which is long-lasting and provides medium to strong coverage. It feels lightweight on the skin and, despite of the coverage, looks very natural.

 

Maybelline New York Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner 24h

Maybelline New York Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliners I used frequently in last months. I usually wore Brown, a beautiful brown shade that contains some bronze tones (I wore it here) and Intense Black, an intense black shade with matt finish (I wore it here). They have a good pigmentation and their soft texture glides on eyelids like melted pencils. They come with a brush that provide simple application.

Ultra Violet does not belong to this list. The shade is beautiful, but it’s not easy applicable. It takes a lot of effort for one decent line, which can be a problem, especially to beginners. Obviously there is a problem with the purple pigment, because it is not unusual that gel eyeliner in that color doesn’t work well.

I bought them here: Intense Black+, Brown+ and Ultra Violet+.

 

Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade Blonde & Large Synthetic Duo Brush #12

I’ve already mentioned how great both products are. Brush is really superb and with its two ends provides a great application, while Dipbrow Pomade is creamy, pigmented and long-lasting (I wore it here and here). A great combination. I bought them here+.

 

Rimmel New Moisture Renew Lipstick 700 Nude Delight

Ever since I bought it, I was very loyal to this lipstick. I wore it often. I must mention that it is not long-lasting at all. Its light texture will not last more than 2 hours, but it still amazed me. What I liked the most about it is the shade, which is one of those that suit my skin tone the best. Also, it has a wonderful, creamy texture that provides comfort and moisturizes the lips. In addition, the price is affordable, and I bought it here+.

PUPA Milano nail polishes (review)

Last year I discovered Pupa nail polishes and it’s such a shame that I didn’t know about them before. They are amazing! Their texture, brush, pigmentation, durability – all at a high level. They come in a small bottles which is a great thing, because makes them affordable. I tried nail polishes from Lasting Color Gel and Velvet Matt collections and was delighted with both. In particular, the shades that I tried are: 026 California Soul (Gel) and 005 Nude (Velvet Matt).

Eylure false lashes

The best of 2014: Eylure false lashesI have been wearing Eylure lashes for years. They are amazing and I usually buy the ones that look natural on eyes. In the last two posts (here and here), you could see me wearing N°035 Lengthening, and here I wore Girls Aloud Cheryl lashes. I bought them here: N°035+ and Cheryl+.

 

 

 

 

 

MAC Cosmetics

I tried many MAC products in 2014. They were not available in Croatia, so it was really hard to buy them. The great thing is that on January 23rd, 2015 MAC opened the store in Croatia. Finally! This time I will not feature specific products, but the groups of great products:

Lipsticks
I’ve tried 4 shades (Ravishing, Yash, Ruby Woo and Red). There are minor differences in quality due to the shade, but all are very good to excellent. What connects them is the quality of texture and very good staying power and pigmentation. I wore Ruby Woo here.

Blushes
Peaches and Frankly Scarlet both have a matt finish. Besides the shade, they differ in pigmentation. I prefer lighter pigmentation of Peaches. Peach shades are my favorite, so this was a big hit for me. I bought Frankly Scarlet because of the beautiful red shade that was missing in my collection. It looks beautiful on the cheeks, but be careful with this one due to the high pigmentation. I wore them here and here.

Pro Longwear Paint Pots
Paint Pots are eye colors, but they are much more than that. They can serve as an excellent base. These creamy products have incredible texture. They completely smoothen my eyelids and their staying power is amazing! I have Soft Ochre and Bare Study shades. I wore them here and here.

The best of 2014: MAC Cosmetics

 

 

L’Oréal Paris i Douglas

The brands that pleasantly surprised me in 2014 are: L’Oréal Paris and Douglas.

L’Oréal has launched the perfect collection of lipsticks which confirmed the brands place among the best drugstore brands, but also showed that their quality is aligned with high-end products. I tried L’Extraordinaire by Color Riche lip colors* (review). They are combination of lipsticks, glosses and balms. I love them, but that is not L’Oreal’s collection of the year – the Color Riche Collection Exclusive Pure Reds* is. These lippies are long-lasting, highly pigmented, and have an amazing texture. :x

The best of 2014: Pure Reds

 

 

I usually go to the Douglas perfumeries to buy some high-end brands, so I was glad that last year I had the opportunity to try the products which they produce and the ones that they exclusively import. Many of them have high quality textures and effects, so they are worth of your attention. The products that I liked the most are: Seathalasso Deep Sea Salt Scrub*, Douglas SUN Self Tanning Milk*, Douglas Absolute Summer Affair 38 nail polish* and Baratti White musk shower gel*.

The Edinburgh Natural Skincare Company is a small Scottish company specializing in handmade and completely natural skincare products.

Luxury Number One is a whipped butter made for body care. It has a really rich, fine texture which feels amazing. It is housed in a beautiful glass jar which makes the product even more luxurious.

This butter is a great product for winter days, when our skin gets drier, so it needs more moisture than usual. It has a mild, lavender scent. The main ingredients are: Organic Virgin Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Eco-Sustainable Palm oil and Beeswax from Hoods’ Bees from The Lammermuir Hills of East Lothian. The formula doesn’t contain water. That makes even richer formula which is very nourishing and moisturizing, so a little goes along the way. Also, because the brand doesn’t use water in the manufacturing process, this product has an extended shelf life; two years once opened.

Luxury Number One is a really great product that is a right choice for pampering your skin when it’s cold and when you have some extra time, because its richness takes time to be soaked into the skin.

It is made of excellent ingredients where Acerola cherry juice dominates. Also, this cream contains Co-Enzyme Q10. The brand is awarded with Beauty Innovation Award (Paris, 2012).

Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade in Blonde & Large Synthetic Duo Brush #12

I liked the whole Expert Radiance line a lot, but especially this product. This cream peels the skin while you sleep, which means that it reduces all imperfections. It contains 99.65% ingredients of natural origin.

I finally found a right nude shade. This is the one! The lipstick has wonderful scent, like some face cream and extremely creamy and nourishing texture.

A wonderful product that includes a bronzer and a blush. They both look very subtle on face and can be worn all year round. I bought it last summer, but since then I have not stopped using it.

Catrice Gel Eye Liner 010 Black Jack With Jack Black
Last year I used this eyeliner very often mostly because of its long-lasting formula. It has an intense black color, easy-to-apply formula and is very inexpensive.

This is a very precise black eyeliner that I used the most last year. It is so easy to create a line with it.
